Re: “Rainy day open line

HA - NOW I know what inexplicably "called me" to the AB at 5a.m. PST! Since returning to NoCal in 2010, after 21 years in Bee Branch (Morganton), I rarely check back in - and more rarely make a Comment. I am reminded what a joy and KICK both Jazzy & Kizzy were!!! With Jazzy frequently appearing as my ideological "soul mate," and saying so... Back then we were the MAJORITY - railing at the BibleBabble of trolls. NOW the freaking state has been overrun by the TEAmorons. I can assure everyone that the frequency of my locally-oriented "Outrage Factor" has virtually dropped off my radar - NoCal now, compared to Van Buren County then!!

A GREAT BIG "Howdy, Y'all" to you - DO miss it, and snarky Facebook posts are a poor substitute for the Arkansas Blog... It is both ironic AND annoying that the gist of my current Fbook contributions are pretty much the SAME as that from Durango's Archive. Same Shit, Different Day...or decade!

Re: “State Board quizzes Maumelle charter on failure to meet goals, but it will continue

RIGHT CbB! I've often said that a 7th-grade basic knowledge test would eliminate MOST of The Ledge...

What a crock - the "consequences" are BIG Time chastising in a meeting? THAT will reform the reformers for SURE...

Re: “Arkansas Republican: Praises Obamacare, going to save him $13,000

"Congress exempt from 'ObamaCARE' is another alarmist's LIE:"

Here’s what the law’s text says: “Notwithstanding any other provision of the law, after the effective date of this subtitle, the only health plans that the Federal Government may make available to Members of Congress and Congressional staff with respect to their service as a Member of Congress or congressional staff shall be health plans that are — (I) created under this Act (or an amendment made by this Act); or (II) offered through an Exchange established under this Act (or an Amendment made by this Act).”

In other words, Congress must use the ACA.

Re: “Arkansas Republican: Praises Obamacare, going to save him $13,000

Were it not for Republican recalcitrance, the obvious (and inevitable!) glitches and shortcomings of the ACA could be rapidly addressed! I'm just guessing, but don't you think there are administrative "hooks" that will accommodate critical, on-the-fly revisions when the need becomes obvious? I certainly hope so. It will become SO gratifying to watch the TEAnuts "eat shit and die" when this law reaches the status of it's Massachusetts heritage!
