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.

Re: “House to change rule on committee appointments; place power with speaker

These guys are drunk on power. Last week you have the federal House of Representatives try to scrap the independent ethics committee (Even Trump thought this was a bad idea). Then you have Micah Neal and lord knows who all else tied up in a bribery scandal. And now you have the legislators voting to be able to raise money while they are in session?!! Really? This is the very first thing they do this session? This is what is most important for the people of Arkansas? Unbelievable! Disgusting! Disappointing. The people of Arkansas deserve better.

Re: “More names and faces linked to legislative kickback probe

@Laissez Faire - As someone who has complained for the longest about how bad the ethics bills were that Woods and Sabin passed, I have to agree with Max on this one. He has mentioned Woods countless times over the years on his role as lead Senate Sponsor of the bill.

Re: “Add Alan Clark to list of legislators who spit on 1st Amendment

Special Thank You to Senator Clark. If it weren't for folks like him and Senator Rapert, the ACLU would be on hard times. That said, they should call Clark's plan the "ACLU Right to Work" because they will be churning some fees off of his actions. The ACLU really appreciates all you two do to keep their doors open!

Re: “Hillary in Arkansas

Good column. That said, I wouldn't call the 1980 Governor's election the most startling outcome of the modern era in Arkansas, however. Many expected the outcome. The whole "Cubans and Car Tags" thing was talked about up and down this state and don't forget Ronald Reagan was on the ballot and he swept through the south. I knew of several Democrats at that time who were voting against Clinton and Carter. Wasn't a surprise.

Re: “Rehearing request filed today on marijuana act

"Had Issue 7 backers known what was to come when Secretary of State Mark Martin certified the measure, it could have "cured" the 2,000-signature shortfall by gathering more."

Truer words were never spoken. The office of Secretary of State matters. It is so important and unfortunately, we have had a buffoon in this office going on six years now and it has cost us.
