Re: “Militarization of city police — in Ferguson, Mo., and Bryant, Ark.

Speaking of Bryant....

I happened to be working there yesterday and saw Jill Dabbs driving an apparent loaner car from the local GM dealer. I assumed it was a loaner as it didn't have a license plate and looked like it just came off the lot. What was interesting were the big magnets on each side that said "Jill Dabbs-Mayor".
I did a U turn to get a pic but she was being followed by a Bryant cop in one of those fancy SUV's they have and I didn't want to get hassled about driving around and taking pics.
It sure seemed odd to see a mayor, any mayor, driving around with their name plastered on their car doors.

Re: “Private option (Obamacare, if you prefer) made easy

Interesting that Missy Irvin would pass along a tweet from Dr. Kris Held regarding Obamacare.

Dr. Held studied at UT-San Antonio and at the University of Texas. This took all of 15 seconds to learn by a google check.

I would assume that both the state of Texas and the federal government subsidize degrees in medicine for students in that state.

This is so typical of the right. I've got mine, fuck you in your attempt to get yours.

Re: “Mark Darr: The dead wood edition

Max, you took the words right out of my mouth. Why should Darr's staff even bother to come to work anymore? The way I read into this, they can't be fired.

I'm guessing that when they do come to work that most will ride courtesy of the state police. I mean....why not?

The gosh damned hypocrisy of the right is overwhelming sometimes.

Re: “Enrollment by county in the Arkansas healthcare private option

I just hope that the 532 people in Stone Co. that will lose their health insurance will set up camp outside Sen. Missy Irvin's residence and share their feelings with her.
Missy, your own self interests are plainly obvious to the rest of the world.
I did some checking and found that the unemployment rate in Stone Co. for 2013 was 10.1%...more than two and a half times the national rate of 4%.

Missy needs to spend her time helping resolve THIS and quit worrying about tattooed people and poor people getting health insurance.

Re: “Missy Irvin releases statement: she will vote no on the private option

For the life of me I just don't understand the hate in Missy Irvin and others like her.
It takes tremendous leadership to snatch away insurance coverage for poor people right after they receive it. Does every household in Stone Co. make more than $95,000? Surely there are people in her own district that weren't raised as doctors' children and later married one. How in the hell do people like this get elected?
Missy, you are a spoiled little girl who hasn't faced 1/1000th of the problems that the rest of the world has.

Shame on you Missy. Shame on you.

Re: “Guns: If you've got 'em, flaunt 'em

"If you are in a store and a gun wielding MORON comes in to rob the store, you will be calling one of these MORONS your HERO."

Pat I couldn't disagree with you more. I happened to be caught in the crossfire last year at the Arvest Bank on Chenal Parkway during an armed robbery. A doctor, still wearing his scrubs, whipped out his gun and fired away at two robbers. Problem was that I was standing between the two of them. My truck has a bullet hole in it from that day from that doctor.I can still hear the sound of his bullets whizzing through the air looking for a target to hit.

More guns=more shootouts

Re: “Ethics Commission presented with lengthy particulars on Lt. Gov. Mark Darr's spending

Someone please tell me that this clown will get what he's due.
