JOHN BRUMMETT: Arkansas political primer

By John Brummett

It's Friday and I'm departing momentarily for Rogers to speak to Benton County Democrats, once an oxymoron, but now a modestly emerging thing.

The only dems I see here in Benton County are staked out on the I-49 off-ramps. How'd you manage to get them to the meeting?

mozzy, you are surrounded, and just too blind to see it. Those people on the off ramps are the results of Republican economic values, and don't be too surprised if at some point you are out there working your own off ramp. You are but a tadpole in the big financial ocean of life, and you would be smart to recognize that fact, and act accordingly.

Southern Democrats are anything but progressive, they are hold-overs from the Jim Crow era. They are bigoted and intolerant, but on second thought that seems to be a national trend as well.

The economic miracle of Benton County, much like the economic miracles of President Trump, provides jobs for all who want them. Those dems on the off ramps choose not to participate in the workforce, preferring to leech off of those, like me, IN the workforce. So typical of dems everywhere...
Hopefully, the dems will remain a teensy minority here, as their job killing, open borders, gun banning, tax loving, not to mention imbecilic policies are very unwelcome here.

Moz you mean the economic miracle of Obama that Trump is maintaining. Job growth was almost flat this past month and actually dropped in some segments. But you are too ignorant to recognize that. Your response shows how issue illiterate you are and probably can’t even find numbers to back your claims.

TreeTrimmer..........are you trying to say those people on the off ramps had good jobs under Barack HUSSEIN Obama but lost those jobs when a Republican became president ?

I think you are a prime candidate to buy my first parcel of ocean front property in Harrison .

313,000 jobs added in February, RB, you lying, infantile, ignorant sack of Schiff! The only sector reporting losses is the lying, fake media you apparently get your "information" from!

imposter mac, you must be having trouble with reading comprehension. I did not imply that they had good jobs while the previous POTUS was in office and lost them. However, yourself, mozzy and a few more say what a great economy we have now and those people are still out of work, and there's a Republican in the WH, and Head of the House, and Head of the Senate. Therefore, anything negative is now falling in their park.

TreeTrimmer.............those "off ramp bums" should be eligible for disability SS for being blind.

If they had even 20/50 eyesight, they could see all the HELP WANTED signs.

You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.
