Re: “Abortion is safe, but many states throw up delays and misinformation. See Leslie Rutledge

Thank you AT for this factual report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine which is based on science and facts.

It would be great if the Arkansas Medical Board, Arkansas Health Dept., and doctors would stand up for the truth and support women's reproductive healthcare instead of letting themselves be terrorized by certain members of the state legislature, who threatens them if they don't lie about abortion and birth control. Cowards.

Arkansas AG Rutledge is a career politician and a fountain overflowing with misinformation to feed to non-caring voters so she can get reelected. I don't want a career liar as my Attorney General. I will vote for the candidate running against her, Mike Lee, who will be a much better Attorney General than Rutledge has even been.

I believe in science and facts, not other people's myths, made up religion or voodoo dolls. I am Pro-Women. The decisions I make about my life, body and health is no ones business but mine. Your participation in my life ends with my right to make my own decisions. There is nothing to argue about or defend. Move along

Re: “Hutchinson names Steve Cox to UA Board of Trustees

I do not like long terms in government positions or appointments to boards and commissions. I do not think it promotes a healthy governing process. Ten years is a long, long time. He sounds like he has a lot of business interests.

Re: “Greenbrier's paddling of student protester goes worldwide

When I die, I am sure the cause of death will be recorded as "embarrassed to death by the Arkansas government, the Bentonville School District and the Greenbrier School Board. It always bolsters my state pride to see news articles about "Rural Arkansas paddling students for walk out", etc. in the NY Post, Newser, Daily Beast, Arkansas Matters, The Hill, Fox 8 Cleveland, etc..
It was disturbing that the comments section at the end of some of these articles were made by people, but I don't think they were local, or I hope not. They claimed to be adults and in my opinion their comments were hateful, angry and insulting toward the students. They usually started out "Back in my day, children were seen and not heard or As children we were regularly hit in the head with hammers or I support disciplining punk students with paddles if they break the rules at school so they can get their name in the newspaper. The commentators were not students and they had the nerve to be angry at students for threatening their 2nd amendment rights. It was not surprising that Gov. Asa Hutchinson showed no leadership and was eerily silent about the students. Didn't Greenbrier's School Board and school superintendent, Scott Spainhour, think about what kind of sick, contradictory message their actions were sending to students all across the state, and now across the nation? If any Greenbrier students stay in the area after graduation, they can register to vote and run for a position on the school board. Why did Bentonville School District feel the need to automatically give detention to the students that participated in the walk-out?

The minutes from Bentonville's school board meeting didn't have a lot of discussion on this date 3/12/18. That was done in a private executive session. They are hiring another policeman or resource officer for the junior high:

*Motion to hold true to our policy that if students walk out tomorrow it is an absence and administration should uphold the policy. we move we follow our policy for students that are not in class that we follow policy, rules and procedures the district follow policy as it is printed in respect to missing class.

Motion by Eric White, second by Rebecca Powers.
Final Resolution: Motion Fails
Yes: Brent Leas, Rebecca Powers, Eric White
No: Willie Cowgur, Joe Quinn
Not Present at Vote: Matt Burgess, Travis Riggs

I think Bentonville and Greenbrier school boards and the Arkansas government could learn something about being honorable from Wylie Greer.

Re: “Prosecutor says legislator Hank Wilkins took $100,000 in bribes from indicted lobbyist

What happened to the money the crooks stole that should have gone to Medicaid programs and agencies? Will the state get that money back? Has that money been spent ? Is that why some legislators are not running for reelection this year, but will have someone keeping their seat warm? Maybe an outside, out-of-state accounting firm needs to keep the books for the state. Governor Hutchinson has already rolled a lot of agencies, departments and programs under the DFA umbrella, supposedly for "efficiency" and "reform."

Re: “Wednesday: Open line and the daily news roundup

Remember Matthew Heimbach, who was one of the leaders of the Aug. 12, 2017 Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, where Heather Heyer was mowed down by a car? He lives in Paoli, Indiana, VP mike pence's home state. As far as gun safety laws go, I don't think people who have been convicted of violent acts should be able to buy guns, but what about the guns they may already own?
White nationalist leader Matthew Heimbach arrested on domestic battery charges…

Re: “Wednesday: Open line and the daily news roundup

I have been watching this race and normally I would celebrate, but I am hesitant to do so. I read a lot of contradictory spin stories about Conor Lamb's platform, which will die down in a few days. Republican Rick Saccone is the third candidate that has lost after trump holds a rally to show he supports them, which ends up being a campaign speech for himself. trump just likes to campaign in front of cheering crowds. SOS Mark Martin may have helped Lamb win, when he went to PA to join a lawsuit against redrawing the districts. The 18th district will be different territory with new voters in the November election because of the new map.

Why Democrats Should Worry About Conor Lamb's Victory…

Conservatives totally reversed their message on Democrat Conor Lamb once it became clear he's likely to win the biggest election this year…
