Re: “Headlines and the open line

NOTE: I originally posted this comment on David Ramsey's story about Rep Lundstrum's continued attempt to override the will of the voters and change the minimum wage increase law. I'm disgusted with her enough to repost!


Lady....GIVE IT A REST!!!!

If your business is doing so poorly that you can't afford the few measly dollars this minimum wage increase will cost you, or your friends or whoever paid you to continue to make a fool out of yourself and come off looking like a moron, then you/they need to find another way to make a living!

YOUR OWN PARTY AND OUR GOVERNOR have told you to stop! Do you not take advice from anyone?

Minimum wage earners are not in these jobs because it's their life's ambition. They are trying to earn a legal living, any way they can, just like everyone else. Why do you try so hard to hold them down?

You need to get out of your bubble and look around. This is Arkansas!!! Many of those teen workers ARE the heads of households or are primary wage earners. How could you not know this?

And stop saying you know more than the voters about the consequences of the wage increase WE VOTED FOR!!! Obviously you are NOT smarter than 70% of the people who voted (including our governor and your Republican Party) and we knew exactly what we voted for.

Just STOP making a fool out of yourself! You have become a desperate joke.

Re: “Bart Hester's new judgeship bill includes a ringer in Mary Bentley's Perry County

Interesting twist.
Rapert would definitely have an "interest" in having a hand-picked R circuit judge in Perry County because Bigelow is in Perry County.

Re: “Bart Hester's new judgeship bill includes a ringer in Mary Bentley's Perry County

Hmmmm....Maybe Bart Hester owes Mary Bentley a favor and the payback comes in the form of a hand picked local judge to preside over her ongoing divorce????

Re: “The silent majority at work in Senate committee on seatbelt bill

Has anyone here ever been "too tired" to remember to buckle a seatbelt? It's as much a part of driving as gettin in, shutting the door, and turning on the ignition. It's part of the process.

And, if someone is "too tired" to remember the steps for driving, should they be driving?

With all of the safety data from law enforcement, insurance companies, and Dept of Transportation, it's astounding a lawmaker would be arguing against seatbelt laws.

Re: “Practicing medicine by Google again wins favor in abortion bill vote

Sitting in a doctor's office as I read this....

So according to this Bill, a real live doctor is supposed to pass a patient a note that says to google info regarding follow up??? Did I read that correctly?

Re: “Legislators file bill to return local control to Little Rock School District

But if they give the LR schools back to the people of LR, what will Johnny Key do all day?
