Arkansas lawmaker files bill requiring document, ID card to vote December 13, 2016 at 11:23 p.m.

Happy1234, election officials have NO right DEMANDING any ID at the polls. The Arkansas Constitution is clear on this matter and the Arkansas Supreme Court was clear. Poll workers say, "Well, the legislature passed a rule that we may ask for an ID but voters do not have to have an ID." But poll workers are NOT telling voters that they don't have to have an ID, they are demanding, harassing and intimidating the voters into handing over their ID and this is going on all across Arkansas. Before I show my ID they must first change the State Constitution.

BlueEyes, have you ever read the Arkansas Constitution on voter registration?
Try reading Amendment 51 starting on page 85 and on page 89:
.
(C) The mail-in voter registration application form shall include the following statement:
“If your voter registration application form is submitted by mail and you are registering for the first time, and you do not have a valid driver's license number or Social Security number, in order to avoid the additional identification requirements upon voting for the first time you must submit with the mailed registration form: (a) a current and valid photo identification; or (b) a copy of a current utility bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows your name and address.”
(8) If an applicant for voter registration fails to provide any of the information required by this section, the permanent registrar shall notify the applicant of the failure and provide the applicant with an opportunity to complete the form in a timely manner to allow for its completion before the next election for federal office.
(9) The mail voter registration application shall be pre-addressed to the Secretary of State.

The VA is still the VA March 21, 2016 at 2:49 p.m.

The editorial is to make the privatization of the VA more palatable. It seems the republicans have $50 billion that they would like to give insurance companies. They will close down all the VA centers nearest you and veterans can and will be treated for certain illnesses or injuries depending if it is service connected.

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.
