Re: “Bootstraps for me, not thee

It's very easy for him to sit in judgement after receiving over a million dollars in Medicaid services which he continues to receive and receive income from his rentals to people, many of whom have only recently been able to aford any healthcare through Medicaid expansion. He questions whether they're working hard enough even though a signifcant number of working Arkansans are dependent on Medicaid to be able to afford any healthcare at all. I bet a lot of tax payers question whether the taxpayers should have picked up the tab for an insured young manwho was drunk when he went over a cliff and have continued to provide him healthcare and an aide so he can live independently. And he's helped to make sure his personal income won't disqualify his elgibility, nor will he have to list his assets allowing people to question whether he could help pay for some of the benefits he receives from tax payers. I don't begrudge him one dime from Medicaid and I'm glad that we had a program that alowed him to get the crtical care he needed and continue his life productively. I am thoroughly disgusted that somebody who has enjoyed enormously expensive benefits from Medicaid and continues to has the nerve to want to deny others the basic care that has given him so much. Hypocrisy has found a new low in Rep.Josh Miller.

Re: “Forrest City jury OKs porn sales

Well, if it's the economic powerhouse that is reported, then we should be able to field an industry-financed but publicly governed division of law enforcement to assure that all laws are being complied with and that minors and at-risk individuals are not being exploited. While that will have inherrent flaws, it is better than the alternative. We're creating enough multi-millionaires from Mexican drug lords without providing them another source of revenue by trying to ban porn from adult viewers. Prohibition should be a good example of what happens when you have a product that a large segment of the American public want and view as harmless. The emphasis should be on policing the exploitation of desperate people and establishing enforceable laws protecting the health of 'actors' in these productions. I don't view porn or care to but I don't like censorship in a democracy nor do I see any value in passing laws that create a contraband market in which people of the lowest scrupples will become filthy rich. Tax it, regulate it, police it and make examples of those who violate those areas. That seems the best course to follow, though I confess to knowing very little about the industry itself.

Re: “UCA won't seek smoking waiver UPDATE

I agree that it's just to ban smoking where the smoke interferes with others but I think we're unduly intruding into individual rights when you attempt to enforce a smoking ban in an area where it doesn't bother others or create a hazzardous enviornment. If we're going to clean up the air, then we need to be comprehensive and ban all the industrial discharge into Arkansas air. Reminds me of an old saying, "screen a gnat and let the camel go through."
