New health overhaul challenge reaching Supreme Court October 26, 2015 at 4:18 a.m.

ADG left this part out:
.
Lower courts have rejected the group's argument. A unanimous three-judge panel of the federal appeals court in Washington said that while the health care law does contain tax-raising provisions, its primary purpose was not to raise revenue, but rather to expand health care coverage.
.
When the full 11-judge appeals court considered whether to hear the case, the four Republican-appointed judges concluded that the legislation should qualify as revenue-producing. But they would have ruled in favor of the administration anyway. They said the bill properly originated in the House, even if the measure was stripped of its original language.
.
Nicholas Bagley, a health law expert at the University of the Michigan Law School, said he doubts the court will intervene. "There's disagreement on the appeals court about the rationale, but until there's disagreement about the right outcome, the Supreme Court has no reason to take the case," Bagley said.

Governor slams comments made by Judge Griffen October 15, 2015 at 8:32 p.m.

If the people feel the inmates do not have the right to litigate than change the Arkansas Constitution.,, Because the Constitution plaining states that they have that right. And if you want cruel punishment than change the US Constitution.
.
My question is HOW can the governor justify $24,000 in lethal drugs that only have a one year shelf life?

Planned Parenthood files federal suit after Hutchinson cuts ties September 12, 2015 at 7:33 a.m.

Asa is playing politics with our tax dollars. Republicans have already tried this in other states (Arizona, North Carolina, Tennessee and Indiana) which were overturned by the federal courts. A federal statute protects Medicaid beneficiaries' freedom to select the qualified medical provider of their choice.

Entergy plans going off coal at Redfield August 9, 2015 at 4:19 a.m.

Entergy wants to be exempted from the Newark Plant when it was ranked the 35th at the dirtiest coal-fired power stations in the United States? Huh! We drove up through there a couple weeks ago, the smog is awful, the equivalent to 2.3 million vehicles on the road. By the way the roads are terrible up that way too, like most of Arkansas.

How is it that a "school teacher" doesn't know where the president got the authority?
.
You might try reading the Clean Air Act, teacher. That would be where congress gave the president the authority. Section 111, I believe.

Man accused in African lion death thought hunt was legal July 29, 2015 at 1:06 a.m.

Cecil's death was cruel, in Rodrigues' account.

CNN report:

On July 6, Rodrigues (Zimbabwe Conservation Task Force) said, Bronchorst took Palmer to Hwange National Park.
.
"They went hunting at night with a spotlight, and they spotted Cecil," Rodrigues said. "They tied a dead animal to their vehicle to lure Cecil out of the park, and they scented an area about half a kilometer from the park," or about 550 yards.
.
Rodrigues said Palmer shot Cecil with an arrow but failed to kill him. Then the two men tracked Cecil, finding him about 40 hours later and shooting him to death with a gun, Rodrigues said.
.
They discovered that he had been fitted with a GPS collar and tried to destroy it, Rodrigues said.
.
Cecil was skinned and beheaded, Rodrigues said. Contrary to earlier reports, he said, the head has not been found.
.
"The saddest part of all is that, now that Cecil is dead, the next lion in the hierarchy, Jericho will most likely kill all Cecil's cubs so that he can insert his own bloodline into the females," Rodrigues said. "This is standard procedure for lions."
