NRA launches $1.3 million ad buy for Cotton September 27, 2014 at 10:03 a.m.

Packman,

Pryor is a moderate which explains why he gets a 50% rating from liberal and conservative organizations. You consider him liberal because he does not favor Cotton's extremist views of changing Medicaid into vouchers and increasing rates on student loans.

Setting priorities September 26, 2014 at 10:12 a.m.

I also was educated in the old days. Many employers now expect their employees to possess great computer skills. Arkansas schools need to step up to the realities of the economic world of today.

Also, while some "colleges" are nothing but degree mills, a degree from a well respected college is worth more than its weight in gold. The writer is correct about the lack of professionalism of some educators. Legislators need to stop caving in to the teachers unions, and schools must improve if Arkansas is to advance economically.

Youth Services Director Tracy Steele resigns September 23, 2014 at 5:09 p.m.

I think he is leaving because he got a better job. It is difficult to accomplish much with disadvantaged youth when you don't have the money. I hope that he is not leaving the state.

Pryor files safe-room proposal September 22, 2014 at 7:43 a.m.

Pack,

I'm glad you spend so much time in the Delta. I know that you will be happy to start matching my contributions to the local Boys and girls clubs. The greatest way to escape poverty is through education. There are plenty of medical jobs available which must be filled by immigrants.

Not everything in eastern Arkansas is forested. I've driven from little rock to Memphis about 50 times and I've not had a tree fallen across the road once.

Pryor only gets a 50 percent rating from liberal groups. He is about as moderate as they come.

Soros is not spending much this cycle. The Kochs are outspending all.

Also, I've lived in Arkansas longer than Cotton has.

Pat,

I don't have a problem with the votes against the $60 billion pork filled versions. I have a problem with the last vote on the stripped down 9 billion one. He refused all aid unless the rest of Congress agreed to other cuts--all of which had to be program which hurt the poor--never the rich. He is just too extremely conservative.

At ease, soldier September 9, 2014 at 5:33 p.m.

pat,

Sorry. It is not just Pryor who thinks that about Cotton. I've never given a dime or volunteered for any Pryor, and I don't know the father or son very well. This is about Cotton's voting record which indicates that he does not care about children, students, elderly, the poor or middle class. His voting record is all about looking out for the most wealthy, polluters, and the defense industry.

State alcohol vote's foes take fight to top September 6, 2014 at 7:50 p.m.

Ron,

I wondered which was correct, I've seen both on posters and cocktail napkins.

State alcohol vote's foes take fight to top September 6, 2014 at 3:51 p.m.

As far as I am concerned, alcohol should be considered a fundamental right. Alcohol also has serious religious implications. As Benjamin Franklin allegedly said, "Wine is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy."

Hutchinson, Cotton to support minimum wage jump September 6, 2014 at 3:40 p.m.

I didn't say I wanted to go partying with him. Is Ross for legalization of pot?

The alcohol is bothersome. However, I enjoy being a member of a private club in dry towns, but don't ask me to prove it. I think that I've misplaced my Chilis of Jacksonville membership card.
