Re: “Andrea Lea joins GOP race for state auditor

Hmmm...would this include checking into the "bogus" expenses State Reps scam the taxpayers for to pad their State Rep pay???

Re: “Italian fast food chain's first U.S. location: Russellville

They're already open...have been for at least a couple of weeks....nothing to get excited about....weird people and weird place....their "mascot" is a camel...doubt if they'll be in business long in Russellville. They're in the old Taco Bueno location, which was a short lived business too.

Re: “Doctor busted for growing marijuana

His "Bio" on UAMS Family Medical Centers website states:
That Dr. Jimmy Acklin...When not at the office, he can be found on his farm raising beefalo and horses. Ummm...he forgot to mention he also raises marijuana...wonder if it's just for personal use or if he helps out his patients?

Re: “Police identify youth shot by police Sunday morning

Then Mommy should make sure her Little Thugs are at home and tucked into bed at 5am....and where was the Little Darling keeping this STOLEN vehicle? Did Mommy not QUESTION where her kid was, who her kid was with and what the HELL they were doing at 5am in a stolen vehicle no less?????????? Take care of your parenting and maybe you wouldn't have to worry about him being shot by the police or anyone else! Start arresting the "Parents" (I'm using that term loosely) for not keeping their kids off the streets during curfew.

Re: “U.S. Supreme Court preserves health care mandate

OK...since the Supreme Court upheld "Obamacare" I hope those of you who are so pleased will think about this....YES, I receive health insurance from my employer BUT I CAN'T AFFORD TO USE IT due to the co-pay and deductable so I don't go the the doctor. BUT with "Obamacare" I will have to pay taxes on said insurance $ value. The $ value each month is equal to what I make every two weeks, which only because I am EXTREMELY FRUGAL I make ends meet every month...BARELY... BUT ONLY because I don't have cable or internet, don't eat out, only drive to work and back home 5 days a week with a trip to the grocery store once every 2 weeks where I can spend up to $40 and I have NOTHING/NEAR TO NOTHING left at the end of the month...how's that fair? MY MONEY that I work for goes to others that will be able to have AND use insurance and receive food stamps and reduced or free housing? Should I quit my job and go on the public dole too? Seriously...I'm not trying to be a a-hole...this is the true situation...

Re: “Fracking: Benefits inflated and impact ignored

BUT the State of Arkansas doesn't want to raise the severance tax on gas because they're afraid they will quit drilling in Arkansas....YIPEE...YAHOO....tax the hell of those suckers so they will go somewhere else ...because "The Natural State" and all her beauty will be but a distant memory if they are allowed to continue like they are....and if you live in Arkansas BUT not in an area that the drilling is occurring then take a drive and see the damage the roads torn all to hell, the noise, the trash, and that's not even touching the damage being done that you can't see! The companies that are drilling in Arkansas are laughing their asses off because when they're done destroying our beautiful state they'll just move on to the next state and leave us the clean up after them. Yeah, they've given some scholarships and equipment to a community college in Morrilton and talked about all the jobs they're creating...BUT it's the old bait and switch...so distract 'em with a little money for the school and some equipment and spin a yarn about all the high paying jobs their company is going to offer the grads and maybe they won't notice
all the damage being done.... and when it's too late we're left holding the bag....
