Re: “Is Louisiana's Democratic governor a trailblazer or a throwback?

So the question is:
Who do we throw overboard until we win (x) election?
Women
Minorities
Gays
Union members
Non-christians
Immigrants
Poor
Children
Uninsured

Choose the one, or the combination of several, that will put a "Democrat" over the plurality to win the Gubernatorial election, but then decry the fact that the same number of legislative votes to barely pass a draconian law is the same number needed to override a veto.

Re: “Sexual diversity and orientation: flags can say it all

This is the business that proudly continued to sell confederate flags (and continues to this day) following the mass murder of a black state senator and eight other people in a predominately black church in Charleston, SC.

From the Washington Times:

"By - Associated Press - Saturday, June 27, 2015"

"LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Confederate flags will continue to be sold out of a building in a historic gathering place for Little Rocks black community despite pressure from the state NAACP, a store owner told protesters following the shooting of nine black churchgoers."

"On Friday outside her store, Arkansas Flag and Banner owner Kerry McCoy told about 20 people organized by the civil rights organization that she doesnt support racial prejudice. Her business is in Taborian Hall, which according to the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture is the last remaining original building on Little Rocks 9th Street Line, a hub for black businesses and culture throughout the 1920s and 30s. The area hosted famous black musicians."

Imagine the disgust Louis Armstrong or Duke Ellington would feel if they were alive today with the use and purpose of this building by Arkansas Flag and Banner, Arkansas NAACP President Dale Charles told those gathered, according to KATV-TV."

"The Confederate flag has been scrutinized following the June 17 killings of a state senator and eight other black churchgoers in Charleston, South Carolina, in what authorities have described as a hate crime. Dylann Storm Roof, a 21-year-old white man charged with nine counts of murder in the slayings, has been photographed with the flag, which represented the pro-slavery southern states that in 1861-65 tried to secede during the Civil War."

McCoy told protesters she wasnt supporting racism and said she has supported the black community by restoring the historically significant building. She said sales of the flags have increased following decisions by Wal-Mart, Amazon and other retailers to remove Confederate merchandise."

"She said her store has received Confederate flag orders from as far away as Rhode Island and Pennsylvania, and she recently ordered more of the flags to keep up with demand."

Like all retailers, I know not what is in the hearts of any of my customers when they buy from me, McCoy said, according to the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette."

Re: “Broadway Bridge work to continue into September; litter problem reported

Max, do you know if the Broadway bridge is going to be lighted with LEDs like the other bridges in the area?

Re: “Trump's approval rating keeps slipping nationwide, Arkansas included. So what?

What terrifies me is that for Donald to vastly increase his popularity he only needs to appear more Presidential. That could be accomplished by simply letting his new Chief of Staff change his twitter password so that only pre-approved tweets see the light of day. Strategically doing that x-number of weeks before the 2018 or 2020 election could result in gushing compliments from even left leaning media outlets. Four more years?!?
