Re: “HUD Secretary Ben Carson to appear in Little Rock on Tuesday

But, wait. Homeless *and* working will confuse poor Ben. His type think a job, any job, guarantees no need for assistance. (This did post in my default sarcasm font, right?)

Re: “Huckstering: Money sought for film about Mike Huckabee's rise to governorship

If they do portray Huck's time in office, I wonder who they'll cast as Wayne Dumond?

Re: “Asa Hutchinson III carrying concealed handgun with an expired license in DWI arrest, dash cam footage shows

This was apparently his 3rd DUI arrest (1996, 2001, this one in 2016), along with a drug possession charge (2 "molly" - which is a type of speed, I think, and 4 ecstasy pills) from an arrest in Alabama in 2016. He is clearly a danger to others and himself. Must we wait until he causes someone harm or even death? Also, do any or all of these actions put his law license at risk?

Re: “Huckabee apologizes for 'short bus' comment on Fox

Too bad he can't apologize to those who became Wayne Dumond's and Maurice Clemmons' victims after he set the felons free despite the jury verdicts which had sent them to prison. They're dead.

Re: “Rutledge joins legal fight for Trump travel ban

Which of these duties does this action fulfill?
Act 131 of 1911 laid out four general responsibilities of the attorney general's office: 1) to give opinions to state officers and agencies upon any constitutional or other legal question that may concern the official action of said officers; 2) to defend the interest of the state in federal court and representing all state officers, boards, and commissions in litigation involving the interests of the state; 3) to furnish any board or commission an opinion as to the validity of the title on any land they seek to purchase; and 4) to make a biennial report to the governor and the Arkansas General Assembly on all transactions of the attorney generals office."

Re: “Voters defeat Little Rock School District tax extension

For the first time in more than 35 years of voting, my husband and I voted against a millage increase today. Our granddaughter, who we are rearing after the murder of our daughter and who has several developmental challenges, has blossomed since we moved her to the LRSD in the 1st grade so she could receive intensive individualized educational interventions and occupational, physical, and speech therapies which were not available through our small, rural, well-funded, high-scoring public school in south central Arkansas. Despite our eternal gratitude for these interventions. or perhaps because of them, we were not able to support additional funding for the corporatists who have infiltrated the LRSD, usurping the duly-elected school board and silencing the voices of parents and teachers alike. We will vote to tax ourselves to whatever extent can be shown to be necessary when we once again have a "public" school district. #Resist
