Re: “Susan Inman to try again for secretary of state

#ImWithHer Another well-qualified woman is demonized and lied on by weak-kneed men. #WomenRise #SmashThePatriarchy it is way past time.

Re: “We're No. 1! in vote suppression

Will someone then tell me why my information along with 50 million other voters is still online? https://voterrecords.com/voter/68718630/lo…

Re: “Arkansas alone has supplied voter data to Trump. What data? Mark Martin's own illustrates

I am not sure how it was accomplished but as of this weekend 50 Million voters information is available at https://voterrecords.com/ I looked up Donnie & his brood, it seems they have multiple voter registrations in New York. I do not understand how this breach of privacy occurred but it is not just Arkansas...Save your $2.50. Check it out. Don't click on the "Agreement" or it changes into a background check site.

Re: “Mark Martin will partially comply with Trump's voter data request

The Arkansas coffers are going to be a tinkling when the only revenue they have are Billionaires who don't pay many taxes. There is a mass exodus FROM Arkansas due to the policy of serving corporations, TAXATION with No representation, and low intelligence in leadership. It is all about sucking up Koch here. If we are lucky, they will all finally turn on each other.

Re: “Sen. Tom Cotton: Don't ask him about health care

or, the other Senator, the one who knows more about what is good for us than we do. You know he wants our insurance to be affordable: Sen Boozman replied to my concern about the destruction of the ACA -

"...Like most Americans, I believe our healthcare system needs substantive reform. We can all agree that our healthcare system was broken before the passage of Obamacare, but unfortunately that law did little to address the rising cost of health care. Repealing this failed law and replacing it with policy that makes health care affordable for every Arkansan is a priority for me.

Ive heard from many Arkansans who have expressed their thoughts on the American Health Care Act (AHCA) which was passed by the House of Representatives on May 4, 2017. While this legislation isn't perfect, it is a step in the right direction, and there is still much work to be done as it moves to the Senate for consideration.

As my colleagues in the Senate and I begin the process of debating this legislation, we must remember there is a lot at stake given that the health care sector represents 18 percent of our economy and impacts all Americans. As such, reforms must be carefully thought out with the involvement of all stakeholders.

I worked as a healthcare provider in our state for 25 years as an optometrist, and understand any reforms to our healthcare system require thorough and thoughtful debate. It is critical that we implement responsible reforms. Moreover, we must preserve and protect the role of patients, providers and physicians as the principle healthcare decision-makers, not the federal government.

It is time for us to come together and find commonsense solutions to our challenges. America functions best when we work through our differences and tackle our country's problems. Moving forward, I am committed to working with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to reform our healthcare system so it makes sense for all Americans. Please be assured that I will take your thoughts into consideration as we continue this discussion..."

Re: “The Broom Man, Melvin Pickens, dies at 84

I only comment in order to honor Mr. Pickens. The first time I bought a broom from him I just moved into Crestwood and was leaving Leo's, Greek Castle. I needed a broom for my new apartment. Each time I saw him I thought, "Remember you may be doing the bidding of an angel when you give to Mr. Pickens." He has walked on. He is missed.
