House passes stopgap spending measure as senators raise objections December 8, 2016 at 6:32 p.m.

Yes, Pop, I understand black lung. Glossed over the Clinton bit, I see. Obama lost coal miner support in 2012, by the way. Having researched a bit more, though, it appears that a lot of mines are on Fed land. In that case, and depending on who exactly the miners worked for, I might not be opposed to benefits.

House passes stopgap spending measure as senators raise objections December 8, 2016 at 5:30 p.m.

As opposed to, say, Clinton, who said she'd put coal miners out of business? I get Truman was trying to avert a strike, but lifetime benefits is pretty ridiculous.

Arkansas roads agency opens bids on 5 sizable jobs; widening of U.S. 67/167 among $244M in projects December 8, 2016 at 2:49 p.m.

Concerned: "Have you ever waited to get on I-430 N from Cantrell in the morning or evening? "
.
I usually drive past it. And, as I said, the Cantrell backup is usually due to a backup on I430. So, to reiterate my question, what good will having a right lane entry rather than a left lane entry do when the main cause of the Cantrell backup is I430?

"adding a ramp from Cantrell Road west to Interstate 430 north at the I-430/Cantrell interchange in Little Rock for $22.9 million."
.
Considering the Cantrell backup is usually caused by a backup on 430, what good will this ramp do?
.
"That's the beginning for our east/west thoroughfare to be less congested."
.
See above. Adding a ramp will just make the backup move from the left lane to the right lane. Money well spent I think.

5 named to committee to oversee medical marijuana in Arkansas December 7, 2016 at 5:49 p.m.

The Justice Department is NOT permitted to use budgeted funds to enforce marijuana laws. By order of Congress. As for being a Schedule I, it is ridiculous that it is. Especially considering its ACTIVE INGREDIENT is Schedule III and sold as a pill.

Nothing like sending a wall comment 3 days after I make a comment...
.
KDC - facts ARE open to interpretation. I do scientific research for a living lady. If you think you can't twist facts to fit a narrative, then you don't have a clue.
.
As for Trump lying, yeah, so? Who said I liked Trump? It's not like that was even the context of my comment. But whatever. Just go away.

So far, 11 signed up for Little Rock's tech park December 7, 2016 at 10:59 a.m.

I know an actual tech company with real labs that was interested in going there about two years ago. But the ridiculously long delay in getting this thing to a usable point caused the company to go elsewhere. And it sounds like phase 1 is mainly cubicle type work that could fit in anywhere without the grants and incentives the park needs to throw to fill space. That doesn't sound like real technology. Or certainly not what was sold to voters. Given all that, I can't help but think the tech park is going to be a huge waste of money.

Facts can be subject to interpretation. And they often are. What one labels as 'false' may not be in context.
