Re: “Asa Hutchinson III carrying concealed handgun with an expired license in DWI arrest, dash cam footage shows

The REAL crime is that a well-heeled politician's kid gets a free pass on a DUI charge that is beyond question of his guilt.

Something STINKS...

Re: “Asa Hutchinson III carrying concealed handgun with an expired license in DWI arrest, dash cam footage shows

"Bill Sadler, a spokesman for the Arkansas State Police, said Hutchinson was not charged with carrying a firearm, a class A misdemeanor".

Not according to Act 746.

Re: “Is Hutchinson's line-item veto scheme legal?

How is this a scheme to help the "hard-right Republicans"??? It's the squishy middle like Asa that wants to preserve this over-reaching part of Obamacare. The ONE part that the state can (and neighboring states already have) say NO to... The "hard-right" wants NOTHING to do with this.

Re: “UPDATE: Special session called on school employee insurance

Cecil Bledsoe - a beneficiary of the State Employee system - yes, those who have never had to pay their fair share - the state covers the vast majority of premiums (and helps with family premiums too). Teachers get a flat subsidy to their insurance - and get hit every time premiums go up - unlike State employees who see the state cover most increases.

Re: “Consider Costco

I am flabbergasted at the ignorance demonstrated on this list of (granted old) comments. Particularly the post blaming the GOP/TEA Party for lack of good-paying jobs. Last I checked, it was the DNC/Liberal agenda that has so regulated and burdened businesses as to DISCOURAGE paying good wages and providing good benefits.

The TEA folks are against the public relying on the government - they WANT good wages. Conservatives WANT the private sector to grow and build up the economy... not the government interfering and running up massive debt to do it.

Re: “A small rant: Hunka Pie

They are still up to their old ways. Big sign with their open hours- but rarely are they open at all.

Hunka Pie has hooked up with several deal programs- $10 for $20, and a $15 for $30. The place was. Hey for a couple of weeks after that came out- the. Again... Closed closed closed.

Another one of the 10 for 20 deals came out this past week... And conveniently they haven't been open since that "deal" was published.

Not a good business model to stay in business.

Re: “Send a message to Lowe's over ad cancellation

I sent my message of thanks to Lowes for standing up for what's right. Thank you Lowes. I refuse to step foot in Home Depot, and now Lowes has given me even more of a reason to keep doing business with Lowes.
