Rep. Bob Ballinger, R-Hindsville, answers questions about Senate Bill 5, a bill dealing with jury-trial waivers in contracts, on Thursday morning on the House floor.

The most contested bill of an otherwise easygoing special session cleared its final hurdle Thursday, as the House voted to affirm the legality of jury-trial waivers written into lending contracts.

In a previous article, Ballinger was quoted as saying that "special interests" showed up in this debate and led to the opposition. That's rich, coming from the darling of special interest groups. Ballinger has taken money from 11 PACS, per his filings at the SOS office, including the maximum from the nursing home lobby, a group that would have benefitted from this legislation, as it was originally drafted. Ballinger, who also funneled allegedly fraudulent grants to Ecclesia College has very little room to criticize anyone in Little Rock for favoritism. And, now, his law partner, the omnipresent Travis Story, has been accused of showing favoritism to a client in the marijuana licensing process. If Ballinger kvetching about "special interests" is not the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is.

Big Business wins again! To hell with the ignorant voters, tell them anything and they'll believe it, or they'll forget what it was in less than 30 days.

Middle Class and Little Man don't stand a chance in this state and getting worse every time the idiots meet at the State Capitol. They are only about the dollars and who they pass laws for that will feather their pockets more with funds to run for office.. or their businesses.
