Re: “EPA sues over 2013 oil spill near Magnolia

Come on: It's just a little oil spill. Republicans don't care about that because it's anti-business.

Re: “Another ranking, another low score for Arkansas as a place to do business

The legislature (hence the republicans) should be proud

Re: “Rutledge names new solicitor general

I can see now that "the rule of law" to Ms. Rutledge is a Rorschach test: It exists only in the eye of the beholder, and it's different for her than it is for many others. And it isn't the Constitution: It's her interpretation of the Constitution. We can always wrap ourselves in the flag and argue what we want, and somebody will agree with us, no matter how wrong we appear to others. Welcome to Post-Truth America.

Re: “Not exactly make-believe

I was a couple of years past Mr. Rogers, and I saw only a few of them. But, no one can deny his impact on a generation of kids who saw it that they can define themselves by love and respect that they give and receive. And how he explained "assassination" June 7, 1968, and the separate episode on death only lightly touched on. Disheartening were the clips from Fox News about him that telling each kid "they were special" was just plain wrong, that no one is special, and that kids just have to suck it up and make themselves special. [No one is special; we control your thoughts and mind.] Just like many of the asshole parents that created the bullies then and now, that also created the assholes in charge of American government.

Re: “Meeting set about the ills of Issue One

One can see the ads now: "The Arkansas legislature, notoriously corrupt for taking bribes and gratuities, wants to control the courts, too. They want to decide your quality of justice, not the courts. Don't let them."

Re: “Has Trump crossed the red (green) line on trade?

Elsewhere online today, federal Bureau of Prisons employees feel betrayed because Trump promised funding and staffing increases won't happen. Retirements are accelerating in frustration, and prison population is increasing. They fear riots at prisons. Secretaries and health care workers are forced to act like guards with staff shortages, and one was sexually assaulted. Was it all a ploy to transfer much of it to private prisons, another group of Trump pals?

They're just figuring out he's a liar?

Re: “Senate ethics push already fatally flawed

So much for the citizen legislator. Sen. Rapert considers them a class above working for a living because their salary in the legislature and their graft should be enough to live on.
