Re: “The line is open

If graduating college is so important, wouldn't it have made more sense to give the lottery scholarships to those finishing college? Scholarships are more abundant to first year students than to existing college students. And we wonder why so few actually get a degree?

Pardon the typo's

Re: “A modest proposal on freebie state cars UPDATE

I'm so sick of this diversion. We need to be focused on the perks and freebies state employees and officials get from LOBBYISTS.

Re: “The cars — and the plane

Sundown (aka King Bobby Tullis),
Shoffner is one of many that travel to conferences. It's part of the job. Most travel by state employees is not necessary though in my opinion.

Re: “The cars — and the plane

One area of government waste that does not benefit Arkansans is TRAVEL. Specifically travel out of state. That is money actually wasted from a state standpoint because it leaves the state. Cut all the travel to conferences that could be held over the internet or by phone.

Re: “The cars — and the plane

Forget cars....how much is spent on coffee and toliet paper? One person's "waste" is another person's salary or profit. The thing that needs to be focused on in this state is the regressive nature of out tax system. Poorer areas have the highest tax rates due to low tax bases. Yet nobody wants to talk about that. No, let's keep talking about bullshit.
