POLL: Bid to rein poor now part of Arkansas bill May 4, 2016 at 9:51 p.m.

Hey Nodmcm - Thanks for sharing the latest version of DNC talking points, which is to paint Donald Trump as a Democrat in Rush Limbaugh's clothing. Hillary may be a liberal's lib, but Trump is worse. Not sure if it will work, Nodmcm, because there's a populist, anti-establishment movement out there that seems to transcend conventional wisdom and politics as usual.
.
Leave it to Joyce Elliott to make the case for good government. Poor people do need cash, especially if they want to buy cigarettes, lottery tickets, or beer. Who gives a rat's a$$ about accountability when a $5 scratch-off is such a taxpayer funded bargain. Yes Joyce, needy people need cash too.

Hey Nodmcm - That Donald loves Hillary story is a little too tin-foil hat, considering Trump's rhetoric. He's literally putting his life on the line and it's difficult to imagine he would go to those lengths just to see a woman elected POTUS. As to Chelsea and Ivanka being BFF's and daily text buds, I'll have to take your word for it. I have no such personal knowledge.
.
Just for sake of discussion, let's say what you say is true. Trump has unwittingly tapped into a populist message that might get him elected regardless. The female vote is as marginalized as the black vote, meaning it's wholly predictible as women over 30 that like Hillary will vote for her whatever Trump says and pro-life women over 30 will vote against her whatever Trump says. Millennial females may balk at Hillary once they realize how she slut shamed women that accused Bill of various sexual indiscretions. Millennial males that like guns and jobs will support Trump. Millennial males that want free stuff and a vagina will vote for Hillary. If the millions of white males that stayed on the sidelines in 2008 and 2012 vote Trump and the black turnout is down just 5% in swing states, Hillary's toast.

Company to move ammunition plant to Arkansas from Kentucky May 4, 2016 at 8:59 p.m.

It's always quite telling when libs start whining about "corporate welfare" when jobs are being created and an economy boosted. Libs really do detest people that work for a living. For the umpteenth time, "corporate welfare" is a nonsensical term conjured for and by useful idiots. It's much like calling the personal exemption on a federal income tax form "personal welfare". Only in liberal la la land is the concept of ROI considered DOA.

Kurrus: Open to role in district, but need to know where Little Rock schools headed May 4, 2016 at 10 a.m.

Hey Citizen - Thanks for your sensible and thoughtful commentary. I believe the document you mentioned is called an "IAP" or something like that. And isn't Easter Seals a blessing. It's one of my favorite places to donate money. My initial reaction to Kurrus' removal was anger and resentment because it seemed Kurrus had turned things around in the LRSD and the only reason he was being replaced was due to his opposition to the expansion of charter schools. I still believe removing Kurrus to be a bad move and consider it petulant and heavy-handed.
.
However, there's no going back. I hope you are correct with your assessment of Mr. Poore.

Two snatch purse from early shopper at Little Rock convenience store May 4, 2016 at 9:44 a.m.

Hey Boltar - Of course you hope the victim wasn't carrying concealed. As a typical lib, you prefer victimhood over self-reliance. Of course it could be much worse. Next time the thugs could slit an unarmed woman's throat. SMH at libs not wanting people to defend themselves to the best of their ability against criminal behavior. SMMFH.

Target faces backlash on stance on transgender bathrooms May 4, 2016 at 9:40 a.m.

Hey 23 - D.J. Hughley, among other notable black folks, say your hijacking of the civil rights movement so a 300 pound hairy man in a dress can p next to a little girl in a women's restroom is horsesh*t. This quote isn't exact, but Hughley said something to the effect the LGBT bathroom movement is more like a bowel movement. When gender non-conformists can show historical laws that segregated them into separate schools, limited where they could buy a house, ordered them to ride in the back of the bus, or counted their votes as less than a person, D.J. will listen. Otherwise, he says STFU.

Target faces backlash on stance on transgender bathrooms May 4, 2016 at 9:32 a.m.

Target now says Bruce Jenner's desire to p in a stall next to a 10 year old girl is more important than the 10 year old girl's desire to feel safe and comfortable in a ostensibly protected environment. Thus embodies modern day liberal ideology.
.
But always remember this isn't about "rights". It's about .0003% of the population attempting to force societal acceptance of a severe mental illness. It's patently irresponsible to condone and embrace people that desire to mutilate their bodies due to mental fantasies. Does anyone question this assertion? Truth can be found in common sense application of what the pro-mental illness folks say. If it shouldn't matter that Bruce Jenner wants to urinate in the women's restroom at Target, then it shouldn't matter if he want to urinate in the men's restroom. If it doesn't matter, it DOESN"T matter.
.
If Target is sincere they will do away with those cute little stick figure signs that distinguish men's from women's restrooms and just have restrooms for anyone regardless of race, age, sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity. But they aren't sincere and this isn't about rights or discrimination.

Sex offender accused of performing sexual act in barber's chair at Little Rock shop May 3, 2016 at 3:08 p.m.

Silly Garland Vanderbilt. Instead of a barber shop, all he had to do was go to a Target Store's bathroom to expose himself in front of little girls and instead of being prosecuted he would have been asked to lead Little Rock's next gay pride parade.

Hey Timber - You may be correct and only time will tell. Regardless, a President Trump is better for America any day than a President Hillary Clinton. It's like a guy said, with Hillary America's playing Russian Roulette with a 6-shot revolver loaded with 6 rounds. With Trump the gun only has 1 round. I'll take my chances with Trump.
.
Hey armnar - Be careful of what you wish. What's taking place in both the Republican and Democrat parties is the influence of a populist voice. In that regard Sanders and Trump are the same, just on opposite ends of the political spectrum. Establishment Republicans might be drug kicking and screaming into such notions as building a wall, balancing the federal budget, strengthening the military, and seeing self-reliance more important than a government handout, but they will be pushed there nonetheless.
.
Sanders may have to drag establishment Democrats into notions like free health care, free college, income re-distribution, and a brand of socialism that spreads economic misery to everyone but the top 5%, but they will be pushed there nonetheless.
.
The next 6 months are going to be very interesting.

Springdale school employee accused of raping 12-year-old student May 3, 2016 at 2:51 p.m.

But if he wakes up one morning and chooses to identify as a girl, it's A-OK with libs for this pervert to use the women's restroom in Target, women's locker room at the gym, or women's changing room at the city pool. To heck that it might make a 12 year old girl feel uncomfortable or a rape victim re-live nightmares, it's more important to libs for Bruce Jenner to p in the stall beside a 10 year old girl than for the little girl to feel safe in a supposedly protected environment. Morons. Libs are f'ing morons.
