Re: “Asa Hutchinson, French Hill dodge TV debates

I guess our grinnin' governor is afraid he can't defend his family members and his former chief-of-staff for their, alleged, involvement in the corruption he allowed. I do hope that people will put away their political badges in favor of holding everyone, regardless of party, accountable for their actions or inactions. As an Independent, I cannot comprehend people so devoted to a political club that they excuse all behavior, including stealing from them. To many, belonging to their herd is more important than honesty and integrity. Is that what they learn in their churches? Maybe that's why both parties and most churches are losing members by the droves. Many of us simply can't compartmentalize our morality like they so adeptly do. In the long run, it won't work for them. If they keep electing crooks, ultimately, their pocketbooks will be picked clean and no church will be able to save them from their abdication of the tenents they so loudly profess.

Re: “Springdale preacher charged in sex-with-minor case

So, thanks to Bob Ballinger, Cecile Bledsoe, Bart Hester, Charlie Collins and others, our tax money went to pay this pervert's salary at Ecclesia College. It's one thing for Ballinger, et al to choose to support Ecclesia and its band of debauched criminals, but it's quite another for them to take our money for their illegal purposes. We must remember this when it is time to vote. You know the willfully blind, religious fanatics are going to vote for these people, regardless of what they do. So, the rest of us who are not blinded by their phony religiosity had better get off our butts and vote. If we don't, Ballinger, et al will just continue to promote graft, payola and perversion. It is time for the moral people in our state, Christian or not, to band together and get rid of the scourge that has infected our state house. Time to VOTE THEM OUT, VOTE THEM OUT!!!!!

Re: “Corporate lobby loves ballot issues, except one they didn't control

So, maybe we should call the Chamber of Commerce the Chamber of Thieves. On behalf of large businesses, they rob us of our rights. Issue 1: Granny's life is only worth $500,000.00, per Mike Morton and the Chamber of Thieves. Term limits: We have to keep our puppets in office so the Chamber of Thieves can continue to pull their strings. Webb was decrying "outside money" coming into our state about term limits. That's rich. I'll tell Mr. Webb something. If you keep outside money out of all issues in Arkansas, then we'll take it out of this one. I can also warn the Supreme Court in our state. You are also elected. If you try to water down or do away with any citizen initiated ballot proposals, we will remember. What big business does not seem to understand is that they don't exist without the little guy. The worker, the consumer, we are the ones who make and buy the products and services they provide. We also vote, not only at the polls, but with our money. So, to Mr. Zook and his Chamber of Thieves, beware, this is a new day in Arkansas. We have seen the corruption you have supported and we are sickened. And, if you try to thwart us, there will be consequences for your bottom lines. As long as we are free to vote, we the people still rule.

Re: “ICYMI: Lamoureux's response to latest corruption plea

Or, maybe we could stop being so label conscience. I've never been much for being caged in someone else's little box so their little brain can understand me. I have always voted for the person, not some trite political club. We have allowed these parties to overtake our election system by pouring money behind their chosen ones. We have allowed these political parties to divide us, just as our enemies want. I find it interesting to see all the party leaders in D.C. decry the criminal activity associated with our elections, while fomenting the great divide among us. Perhaps we should realize we have common enemies in this world, and some delight in our constant bickering. They think that our freedom to disagree will bring us down. And, with the rancor we hear from some about the "other side" they could be right. I choose to think that we will, eventually, stand again as one United States of America. We are not the enemy and we are the only ones who can restore our nation. So, enough with the labels, they mean nothing more than any overpriced designer clothing label. They are merely for insecure people who have to use them to make themselves feel better than "the other".

Re: “ICYMI: Lamoureux's response to latest corruption plea

Both asses and elephants stole our money. No matter how bad you want it to, it has nothing to do with party. If you don't stop thinking in your tired old party lines, and vote for people merely because they have R or D after their names, it will only serve to re-elect the same crooks. Time to open your minds to the facts of these cases. Everyone in our legislature is culpable, either by overt participation or by their silence. A crook is a crook, no matter what flavor.

Re: “Corruption probe nets another guilty plea, implicates another senator

And another one down, another one down, another one bites the dust! Wonder who "Senator C" is? He was a senior senator and an attorney. From looking at the senators in the 89th Assembly who were senior and attorneys, I have three candidates. It looks like "Senator A", already named in a previous indicitment, is our silent governor's nephew, Jeremy Hutchinson. He was also an attorney. How many broke attorneys are in our legislature? We all know some in our own towns. They hang out their shingles and no one hires them, so they run for office and take money under the table. Another broke one is Bob Ballinger. He lost his house and business and then ran for office. You don't have to be an attorney to be a crook in our legislature, but it sure seems to help. I say, keep it up Mr. Kees, et al. You and the other feds start cleaning the sewers in our state house and, hopefully, we the people of Arkansas will finish the job. I hear that up to 80% of them could be gone if we vote for term limits. The rest, we can flush down the toilet come election day. Thank God for the feds. If they hadn't caught all these sleazeballs, they would have kept right on stealing from us, and the rest of their co-harts in our state house would have silently let them. The stench coming out of Little Rock is getting putrid, time to clean it up. VOTE THEM OUT, VOTE THEM OUT!!

Re: “Sentencing set for four in Ecclesia College kickback case

Neal and Paris rolled to get lighter sentences. Woods and Shelton, maybe not so easy. Either way, they have all been exposed and this will follow them the rest of their lives. I would like to know if anyone is going to try to recoup any of our money? The governor and Rutledge came so late to this party, and have been so quiet, they must have thought it was not their jobs to expose the rampant corruption. Perhaps because the governor's nephew, Jeremy, may be involved. Or, perhaps because Asa and Rutledge were so busy planning their next political move, they didn't think little things, like millions of our dollars, was important. I hope their next move is into political oblivion. Maybe then we might have a chance of getting people who actually care about we the people in these offices. One can dream!
