She's with the government and she's here to help. ;-)

Must be some needles in that haystack of emails that the State Dept. would prefer not be made public.

Audit raps state DHS for no-bid tech projects July 22, 2015 at 10:28 a.m.

Either the analysts aren't doing their jobs OR administration and management are ignoring the analysts (or both). Ask Camber Thompson and Randy Wright which scenario is correct.

No comment/reason given for firing his predecessor. Job not posted and the public wasn't invited to apply due to the "urgency to have the position filled ". SNIFF SNIFF, what's that smell?

Appeals court denies rehearing in Arkansas abortion case July 9, 2015 at 5:40 p.m.

Ms. Rutledge has stated that one of her top 3 priorities is to ensure that all laws passed by the Arkansas legislature meet the test of not infringing on our individual liberties.
BUT, by "work diligently to defend Arkansas’ Constitutional Right to Life Amendment and Constitutional Amendment prohibiting same Sex Marriage", she IS infringing on the individual liberties of Arkansans who want to marry someone of the same sex or have an a legal abortion after 12 weeks of fetal development. She can't have it both ways.

South Carolina governor: Confederate flag comes down Friday July 9, 2015 at 12:15 p.m.

The Civil War ended 150 years ago. The side that flew the Confederate flag was in favor of enslaving humans with dark skin. The side that flew the Confederate flag was defeated and surrendered unconditionally. Fifty years ago (100 years AFTER the Civil War ended), South Carolina raised a Confederate flag at its Statehouse to “protest the civil-rights movement”. If the raising of that flag 50 years ago was NOT a sign that the government and people of the State of South Carolina practiced and endorsed bigotry, discrimination and hate, then what was it? The Confederate flag is genuinely and undeniably a part of U.S. history. If I want to see one, I'll go to the history museum.

LR plan bans soliciting gifts in, near roads July 7, 2015 at 11:39 a.m.

Thank you LR City Directors. No deadly incidents (yet), but an ounce of prevention might keep some drunk driver from killing someone. Not only are those solicitors in danger of being struck, but they also impede trafiic flow. The light turns green and no one moves because the first car in line is busy handing out quarters instead of paying attention to the signal light. I'm not against soliciting along public thoroughfares. The solicitors just need to set up a collection area in an adjacent parking lot and direct donors to that location via signs on poles or people waving signs from the parking lot.

Game & Fish life jacket 'citation' for ice cream draws attention online July 3, 2015 at 1:17 p.m.

Our society, especially the media, does NOT recognize or reward good behaviors nearly enough. Of course the media has to focus on bad behaviors in order to have "news" that sells. Shame on us.

Cleburne County clerk will resign over same-sex marriage licenses June 29, 2015 at 2:03 p.m.

In the real world, refusing to perform the required duties of your job will get you fired. Mr. Rapert and this fictional County Clerk took an oath to “faithfully discharge the duties” of the office to which they were elected. As as a meaningful display of the firmness of his convictions, Mr. Rapert should resign too.

Supreme Court upholds nationwide health-care subsidies June 25, 2015 at 10:17 a.m.

President Obama has appointed 2 S.C. Justices during his tenure, but 5 of the 9 Justices were appointed by Republican Presidents. Majority: the intent of the law overrules hastily and poorly chosen words. Result: ignorance, fear and hate lose again. It seems that, in addition to being interpreters of the law, most of the Justices have some common sense too. Time to buy some health care stock again.
