Re: “Report: Arkansas nonprofits face declining contributions

YJ, you are correct. Im having to back off a lot as of right now. Im finding myself dropping to Trumps level. Families are divided just as in the civil war. As if that is the correct name. Im trying to return to a bit of civility.

Re: “Report: Arkansas nonprofits face declining contributions

NPO's, just like so many other things, need checks and balances to keep the corruption at bay. The tax cuts to the top bracket just meant that they no longer needed to make charitable contributions to reduce their taxes. I try to be selective and investigate before I give to a non profit.

Re: “Trump meets (berates) the press MEANWHILE

I was distracted and TinyP would not accept my post when I woke up. I had this to reply to Geronimo Rex before Jake da Snake posted his excellent comments. However, since I did all this typing I'm going to weigh in anyway:
GRex, how asinine! Blame Obama regarding the wars overseas? WTF? GBush started that one from which we cannot seem to escape! I'm certainly no richer and how do you imagine the world is any safer? Obama was doomed from the beginning with much less than any bipartisan support. Now Trump after having control of both parts of Congress is claiming he is in better shape not because there can be bipartisanship? The man is a coward, a draft dodger, a liar, and pickpocket that diverts attention to do is cowardly deeds. He continually deflects from any real issues, interrupts reporters while relishing the constant attention to feed his ego. He is addicted to being the one with attention. He would implode if no one showed up to put his name out. For him bad news is still news and better than no news. He refused a campaign ad on the economy and job status because he was not in the ad. Trust him if you will, but for me and mine, it will not happen.

Re: “For the record: Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a) a liar b) full of 'HuckaBS'

While I could write a book as large as "War and Peace" on this blog, just let me say that JB is absolutely correct. I'd like for all our people in Congress to be made aware that Trump, becoming more and more backed into a corner, will find a way to put us at war once more.

Re: “Quapaw Tribe points to early 2020 opening for Pine Bluff casino

Just another thing in addition to scratch offs for the poor people that can't afford a pot to pee in from Pine Bluff to lose their money. I don't expect many in Pine Bluff to benefit. I so wish I could be wrong more often.

Re: “Florida votes end to greyhound racing; Arkansas track got a new lifeline Tuesday

This was just one of many votes I lost in the election, not to mention the elections elsewhere in the nation. I was certainly wanting Beto in TX. More locally, I was not surprised but my shoulders slumped on hearing so many of the Reps won in the state, such as A$a, Leslie, Hill, and of course the gambling. Not that I'm opposed to casinos, but damn folks make it something more than giving it to the same folks. People should have learned with the state lottery where the schools did not benefit and not many students have either and what happens to the rest of us - we have to stand in line extra long to pay for our gas while folks that can't afford it are scratching off.

Re: “D.C. group's candidate in runoff for Bentonville mayor

I'd vote for Stephanie Orman too! I like women. Not only that, but I'm damned if I'd vote for anyone named Webb. We have an over abundance now!
