Re: “University of Arkansas Board meets in private, no decisions announced

So long as they (the Proles) continued to work and breed, their other activities were without importance. Left to themselves, like cattle turned loose upon the plains of Argentina, they had reverted to a style of life that appeared to be natural to them, a sort of ancestral pattern...Heavy physical work, the care of home and children, petty quarrels with neighbors, films, football, beer and above all, gambling filled up the horizon of their minds. To keep them in control was not difficult.

Re: “Hillary book event in Little Rock Nov. 18

Progressives tried to speak out but the DNC would not listen.... so, in my view this is what happened.

"The misery sweeping across the American landscape may have begun with Ronald Reagan, but it was accelerated and codified by Bill Clinton. He sold out the poor and the working class. And Clinton did it deliberately to feed the pathological hunger he and his wife have for political power. It was the Clintons who led the Democratic Party to the corporate watering trough. The Clintons argued that the party had to ditch labor unions, no longer a source of votes or power, as a political ally. Workers would vote Democratic anyway. They had no choice. It was better, the Clintons argued, to take corporate money and use government to service the needs of the corporations. By the 1990s, the Democratic Party, under Clintons leadership, had virtual fund-raising parity with the Republicans. In political terms, it was a success. In moral terms, it was a betrayal."...Chris Hedges

Re: “Attack on free speech clears House committee

All the talk of these conservative small government types.... pass bill after bill for corporations to do whatever they want and then bill after bill to control people. Guess they really need to read the constitution:


[1] The First Amendment states that Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.Aug 24, 2016

Re: “"Amazon tax" passes out of Senate, on to House

This is not shocking is it really that the legislature would find a way to get taxes after they ceremoniously applaud themselves for lowering taxes. If the statement is correct that the state will get revenue in the order of tens of millions of dollars, it is actually saying that Arkansans will pay tens of millions of dollars. It is my belief that all those groups with tax exemptions will not pay, so maybe it should be every person and entity purchasing those tangible items.
