Tax credit for low-income Arkansans rejected by House panel March 24, 2015 at 6:38 p.m.

"If people who qualify for the EITC want to benefit from an income tax cut or a deferral of a capital gains tax exemption cut they should GET A JOB. "
.
Or...they could get elected to office and just vote for a pay raise like your missus.

Panel advances Ten Commandments monument bill March 24, 2015 at 6:26 p.m.

I've no love for Rapert, but clearly this needs to be repeated: "arrange for a monument on the Capitol grounds bearing the same text that appeared on a Ten Commandments monument at the Texas Capitol. The U.S. Supreme Court in 2005 RULED THAT DISPLAY CONSTITUTIONAL."

Convicted in girl's running death, grandma faces death March 21, 2015 at 2 p.m.

Well, cliff, you could probably do a search and get answers to most of your questions.

U.S.: 16 million gained coverage March 17, 2015 at 9:17 p.m.

When I was in college, I bought coverage through the university and as well as an additional plan to carry over after graduation. So counting among the 16.4 million..."another 2.3 million people [gaining] coverage under a provision that lets young adults stay on a parent's plan until age 26" is disingenuous at best. Makes one question the veracity of the remaining numbers. And no, I do not think Saddam is alive.

Harris, DHS ties at times friendly, at others strained March 15, 2015 at 5:05 p.m.

Has there been corroboration of the abandonment threat? Although, I can see Blucker making such a threat in light of her apparent overruling her entire staff at Harris' request. I agree however - Harris needs to resign and Blucker fired. I'd also like to know how a sitting legislator can own a business that gets state funds.

2 officers shot at protest outside Ferguson police station March 12, 2015 at 7:43 p.m.

Pack - "If you can provide a better way to illustrate the problem with race-bating based on unqualified data, please feel free to do so."
.
And yet you continue to talk out the other side of your mouth when it comes to gay men and anal cancer. On one hand you use the statistical disparity to PROVE a point and the other to DISPROVE a point. Typical...

Senate approves bill to reduce lottery scholarships March 10, 2015 at 10:16 p.m.

Yes...I GET that. I see YOUR number. But if you go to the monthly revenue reports - which include annual - on the SAME website, it doesn't add up to 600M. They aren't spending 400M on venders. And prizes are 67% of revenue. So, AGAIN, WHERE does the 600M number on that website come from? The numbers DON"T MATCH. Get it now?

Senate approves bill to reduce lottery scholarships March 10, 2015 at 6:45 p.m.

Whipper - "The fact is that the lottery generated $600M in revenue and less than $100M of it was usable by the state and another $106M was paid out as prizes. This means that the lottery took in $600M of money and flushed $400M down the drain in bureaucratic waste."
.
And yet, if you go look at the lottery reports from month to month, the numbers don't jive. Dec 2014 Year to date revenue: 191,291,721.95, total prizes: 127,958,995.10 or 67%. Total operating expenses: 156,799,861.77 INCLUDING 9,692,044.56 for 'gaming contract costs.' So, where does the 600M come from? Especially when the monthly reports show ~67% returned as prize money.

Whipper - "ONE study came out last year concluding that it has a weak correlation (but a correlation nevertheless) and you want to ignore decades of research because of ONE study. "
.
I'm not sure WHY you think that. I weigh ALL information. Although, I WOULD give more weight to recent studies than older ones simply due to the significant changes that have occurred over the years.

Senate approves bill to reduce lottery scholarships March 9, 2015 at 5:48 p.m.

Whipper - "Many studies have shown that ACT and SAT scores are among the most accurate predictive factors of a student's ability to succeed in college."
.
I just did a search and am finding recent studies show the complete opposite. Please cite your 'many studies.'
