Re: “Lack of internet access raises concerns for Census count in Arkansas, but Hutchinson happy to continue purging Medicaid rolls with electronic paperwork

Asa said in his recent interview with Roby Brock that he "has to assume" that a few thousand of those who are now off the rolls are gone because they found good-paying jobs and no longer qualify for Medicaid.

No data; just assumptions. What an ass.

Re: “Atheists challenge Jason Rapert on social media blocking policy UPDATE

Rabelais: It's not that really. It's that social media has become a necessary means by which constituents provide feedback to ("petition," in Constitutional lingo) their elected officials and participate in democracy by communicating with fellow constituents.

[Note: Blocked individuals can still read Rapert's posts; they're just muzzled in their ability to respond to the posts.]

Re: “Leslie Rutledge mounts the Trump defense

DBI: "I wish I was smart enough to understand how the GOP managed to get all the stars aligned in their favor starting in the 21st century."

I haven't been able to shake the feeling that a great deal of that arose from a rightward swing we took as a knee-jerk, anxious response to 9/11. The increase in religiosity is part of that, as the tragedy made so many of us not only face our mortality but also reflexively seek validation of the superiority of *our* god. In a sense, the terrorists won the war by losing the battle.
