Re: “The legislature slouches home having done .... what?

Our esteemed Legislature has a record of passing laws that just defies all logic. Last year they passed a bill to allow guns in bars. The sponsor was quoted saying "it is legal to carry a gun into a bar up to the point the carrier becomes intoxicated. Then it is illegal. It is up to the bartender to make that call". Now we have the idiotic bill to allow people (mostly young kids) to ride their ATV anywhere they like. It is almost like the GOP vote like lemmings. If GOP member sponsors a bill the lobbyists likes, they all vote the same. My fear of fiscal and special sessions has been confirmed.

Re: “Hutchinson issues special session agenda: Full of hog manure and school vouchers

This is why I was so against the Legislature adding the biennial Sessions for "fiscal issues". They always end up pushing through their pet projects when the limelight is off of what is going on. I was under the impression they had to have a super majority to approve bringing any of these issues up? Most of what they are proposing is more of the same terrible legislation they have produced in recent years. Tax payer money going to pay parents of private school students, 4-wheelers allowed on just about every highway, and forced arbitration are special interest issues being pushed by Legislators who are on the receiving end of special favors, be it money, meals or trips.

Re: “Sinclair pushing attacks on Southern Poverty Law Center on local affiliates, including KATV

Baker, you clearly are in line with other trumpets and touting how much 45 had achieved. If you did your homework as opposed to listening to Fox and Friends, you would know the figures don't come close to supporting yours (and other's) claims about how much credit 45 should receive. Clearly you have something against and SPLC, but even if what you said was true, there is a real problem with a station creating their own biased views (as well as false information) and forcing a local station to broadcast. Soon we will only be getting the same "Happy News" that 45 receives and not anywhere close to being reality.

Re: “The odor of swamp gas in a sweetheart, no-bid consulting contract from Hutchinson administration

Republicans in our state continue to make one decision after the other with little public knowledge. The whole idea the speaker fell for this company simply because Gossage was behind it speaks volumes. Why are members of the leg allowed to award contracts without bids????? Mr. Keyes, who didn't even qualify for his position, is right up there with Betsy Dovos. Unqualified disaster for our state.

Re: “New reporting on use of drug court defendants at senator's manufacturing company

I'm SURE that DARP is not really a "non-profit". I would bet the owners/directors earn substantial salaries. Keeping the pay for "services"... Those much be SOME services since they only give the inmate $500. Unbelievable.

Re: “Jason Rapert v. the Friendly Atheist

Razorblade, you are probably correct in that there are plenty of idiots in his district that will fall for his fake Christianity (and questionable money raising schemes) and will vote for him. However, your other comment about "more polite with the jerk" shows you don't have a clue. His question was NOT being rude or impolite. He simply asked where the rest of the money was spent. Do you not wonder why it took $100,000 to replace a $25,000 monument? Even YOU should be suspect. Just like his "church" and home that are tax free... and the levy work he got pushed through that protects his business (on land that is in the flood plane).

Re: “State senator proposes amendment to end state Supreme Court elections

What a disgusting attempt to take over the judiciary. Heck NO I don't want Asa appointing the justices. What a moronic plan. Don't you just love the inbreeding that goes on in our legislature????:the nephew trusts his uncle. Disgusting
