Re: “Rutledge unhappy about Supreme Court decision on gay rights

Not that the majority of the people of Arkansas care about fiscal concerns of the state when it comes to God, Guns, and Gays, but just how much is the state going to be on the hook for passing and defending another unconstitutional law? One thing about this legislature of ours, the ACLU's got to love them. The ACLU has no shortage of laws to challenge in our state, thanks to this bunch of yahoos at the Capitol.

Re: “UPDATE: Bar fails to endorse alternative damage lawsuit amendment

The Kochs, the Chamber, and Lobbyists won today at the Bar meeting. Too bad about the Bar Association. Agree that the Bar was the only hope of getting that amendment passed. 75% threshold to pass anything seems high. Probably explains why the Bar doesn't do much in this state. How many lawyers does it take to do the right thing? Obviously, we will never know.

Re: “Ethics campaigner explores race for 2nd District Congress

Lonoke isn't in the 2nd. Doesn't necessarily mean someone from Lonoke couldn't run in the 2nd. It would just mean their home county couldn't vote for them. Faulkner on the other hand, is in the second.

Re: “District Fare already seeing strong crowds

Not sure who is running the food blog now. Any chance they will ever bring back Food Friday Feedback or whatever it was called, where the subscribers got to talk about the good and bad food they ate that week? That was a good idea that Daniel had that is missed.

Re: “Judge Griffen responds to judicial disciplinary complaint

So, Senator Jake Files for a second time makes the news for some questionable loans, not to mention being sued by multiple parties, including the City of Fort Smith, yet no action is being taken by the legislature to look into his conduct?

Wendell Griffen exercises his right to free speech and he is the one impeached by our state legislature?

And if you ARE going to impeach a judge, why this judge? If anyone should have been impeached it should have been Mike Maggio. He admitted he took a bribe. I bet he will still get to receive his retirement. So let's see, what is different about Griffen than Maggio?

Well, they are both male.
They are both lawyers.
They are both Judges.
They are both black. Oops, not correct. Maggio is white and Griffen is black.
They both took bribes under the table from Michael Morton. Oops, wrong again. Only Maggio has taken a bribe from Morton. He admitted as such in open court. Griffen has no such stain on his judicial record.

I give up. You all need to figure out why our supermajority Repubican house of representatives is persecuting Griffen, but remained silent during the entire Maggio scandal.

People need to call the legislature and ask them when are they going to hold themselves and their members accountable when they do bad these bad things. These guys know no shame.

Re: “Trumpian politics at the Capitol; gun bill revenge from Charlie Collins

Collins is as insane as Trump. He is a gun nut above and beyond the norm. He must, like Trump, have small hands.

Re: “Bill filed to shed light on campaign donations by requiring searchable electronic reports

"If I have to get yet another form of identification to vote...then candidates for office should be required to use electronic documentation for their campaign donations."

@artificial intelligence - This is one of the best things written on the blog in a long, long time. Damn straight.
