Hutchinson details budget for coming year January 27, 2015 at 3:55 p.m.

Hey Green660 - Are you one of the 40% that pays no federal income tax who believes the 5% that pay 95% of the total do not pay enough?

State unemployment rate falls to 5.7% January 27, 2015 at 3:42 p.m.

Hey dddka - So, paying people not to work provides incentive for them not to work. Amazing!

Hey dontsuffer - A little lesson for you on conservation. How was it elk returned to Arkansas? Did they migrate back to the state, or was their return based upon the sales of hunting licenses and guns and ammo. Conservation brought the elk back. Preservation would have left them in Colorado. Any questions?

GOP pushes abortion bill through House January 27, 2015 at 3:33 p.m.

Hey dontsuffer - One of my duck hunting buddies says salad is what food eats.....
.
Hey nwr - What's sick about logical consequences? You like to preach the gospel of "choice" but do so without regard to consequence. If a woman CHOOSES to have unprotected sex purely for self-gratification and becomes pregnant as a result and unilaterally CHOOSES to kill her unborn child purely for convenience she would make that CHOICE with the understanding she will have her tubes tied as a result. It's all about CHOICE, right? It is duly noted you resorted to ad hominem attack instead of answering pertinent questions. Again, is a diagnosis of Down Syndrome a "severe defect"? A diagnosis of CP? A diagnosis of having a penis? Where do you, as one who evidently wants to play God, draw the line on "severe defect"?

150 turn out, say LR schools, not state, know best January 27, 2015 at 10 a.m.

How ironic the same day as this meeting a kid from LR Fair beats up a teacher. Just sayin.....
.
Hey Sam Ledbetter - A working definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and over again and expecting different results. Stop the insanity and turn control of the LRSD over to the state. It worked for the PCSSD and will work for the LRSD.

GOP pushes abortion bill through House January 27, 2015 at 9:53 a.m.

Hey nwr - "realty dumb"... Seriously? You call someone "dumb" and misspell the qualifier. Who's dumb now? "About one third of American women will have had an abortion during their lives." This statistic is a lie because the data includes women that have had multiple abortions (think Pentucky on Orange is the New Black). "You think you can enforce mandatory gestation and birth?" Actions have consequences, deal with it. "Will we have the "miscarriage police?" We already do. Medical professionals complete all kinds of reports whenever any procedure is performed. "Are you ready to put women get abortions in prisons?" No. Just tie their tubes after the first baby killing. ".....a severely deformed..." Would you call a Down Syndrome child severely deformed? A child with CP? A child like Stephen Hawking? "You don't know anything." I know how to spell "really"......
.
Hey NoUser - Call Rose Mimms with Arkansas Right to Life. She can give all the supporting data you want including the number of abortions involving rape or faulty condoms. It may be closer to 999.5 out of 1,000 that are due to irresponsible behavior.

Obama to seek wilderness designation for Arctic National Wildlife Refuge January 27, 2015 at 9:39 a.m.

Hey dontsuffer and nwr - Your overly simplistic views ignores the reality of tradeoffs and coexistence. Absolute preservation of natural resources would literally mean massive starvation and death to humans on a global basis. Conservation, on the other hand, equals wise use. Since nwar says humans are a "self-destructive species", massive human die-offs is probably good by nwar. But to sane people reasonable tradeoffs to accommodate the needs and wants of mankind are OK. Now, go shoot a tofu.

GOP pushes abortion bill through House January 26, 2015 at 4:34 p.m.

Hey dontsuffer - "Once she is (pregnant), it's her business." Unless the pregnant woman has twenty fingers and toes after an abortion, it's far from just "her business" or just her body. "....wants to have a baby." Thanks for recognizing that it is in fact a "baby". "I'll live my values, you live yours." Do your values permit adult men to have sex with 6-year old girls? Point being your statement is ludicrous. So, do you believe a woman's right to choose to have unprotected sex purely for personal gratification that results in pregnancy trumps the unborn child's right to life?

Reauthorize private option through ’16, Hutchinson says January 26, 2015 at 4:22 p.m.

Hey Pop - "No president has been as disrespected by one group of Americans as has Obama." You really have lost your mind. GW Bush was continually and voluminously disrespected by the left, everyone from Rachel Madcow to Sarah Brady to Chuck Shumer to pretty much anyone from Hollywood and all liberal media in between. Really, you cannot seriously believe Obama has been criticized more than Bush......
.
Hey dontsuffer - Bless your heart. Bush deserved it but Obama doesn't. Can you get any more childish with your remarks? And don't confuse criticism with a recitation of fact. It's a fact that BH Obama's signature achievement, Obamacare, is an abysmal failure by its most important datum. Only in liberal la la land is a 25% success rate considered an "achievement" (three out of four people uninsured before Obamacare STILL uninsured).

Rutledge asks for new arguments in marriage case January 26, 2015 at 4:03 p.m.

Hey 23Cal - "The ban "denies the families of these children a panoply of benefits that the State and the federal government offer to families who are legally wed." Would you support marriage between siblings as protected by the 14th Amendment? Would you support marriage between same-sex heterosexuals as protected under the 14th Amendment? Would you support marriage between any combination and variation of consenting adults as protected under the 14th Amendment? If the answer to any of these questions is "no", why not?
.
Hey ff80 - Are pedophiles discriminated against because their "sexual preference" is illegal?
.
Hey Pop - If you are finished name-dropping, did you notice BH Obama referred to homosexuality as a "lifestyle choice" during his interview with the crazy woman that eats cheerios and milk in a bathtub while she's in the tub?
.
The question isn't about the 14th Amendment. It's about state's rights versus federal government overreach. Does a state have the right to determine what it sanctions as "marriage"? Marriage defined as a union between one woman/man and one man/woman is just as discriminatory as defined as a union between one man and one woman. It is beyond absurd to equate lifestyle choices with civil rights as a way to deny state's the right to regulate marriage.
