Climate panel warns next 15 years critical April 18, 2014 at 9:49 a.m.

Osage, good for you I'm happy you questioned your doctor. I wish I had questioned the judgment of the one who cut out a big piece of me. When it was first brought up that we were changing our climate for the worse by dumping trillions of tons of CO2 in the atmosphere, I questioned it. So did climate scientists and it is their job to question it. Because they realized how important it was to reach a conclusion about this they have applied every skill they have to proving or disproving it. You can bet every dollar you have they didn’t want to come to the conclusions that they have. Nobody wants human caused climate change to be true – not the scientists, not me, not anyone. But it unfortunately is and we better start dealing with it with the best effort we have.

Climate panel warns next 15 years critical April 18, 2014 at 7:01 a.m.

Virtually everyone writing here will go to a doctor and with little questioning follow their recommendations even when do so will cost 10s of thousands of dollars. We will do that even though studies have shown that doctors misdiagnose approximately 50% of the time. And in most cases the doctor stands to make lots of money off the plan.

Yet when over 95% of the highly trained climate scientists in the world agree that man made climate change is here and there is every reason to believe that the consequences can devastate humanity, you cry foul, call people names and spout nonsense from unqualified people. All of this is proof that the fossil fuel industry has to date succeeded in polluting the discussion and has prevented any meaningful action. Eventually they will be found out just as the tobacco industry was but by then there may be too much damage done.

ACLU challenges Arkansas voter ID law April 17, 2014 at 8:34 a.m.

Florida Republicans are also closing voting stations in areas they they don't like and are proposing to close bathrooms in the ones that are open so people can't wait in line too long to vote. Last election many blacks had to stand in line for hours to vote. None of this is about voter fraud, it's about voter suppression.

Suit filers: Voter-ID law contrary to constitution April 17, 2014 at 6:57 a.m.

Voter ID fraud is virtually non-extant in Arkansas and the US at the individual voter level. Illegal vote activity is more likely to be in vote tampering and voter misinformation campaigns that have happened all to often. Requiring a photo ID to vote is a solution for a non-problem that is going to cost many legitimate voters the right to vote.

What happened to liberalism? April 15, 2014 at 8:32 a.m.

Freedom of speech is not freedom to buy the government. To equate the ability of billionaires to buy elections with “freedom of speech’ is totally absurd. The Supreme Court is paving the way toward an oligarchic form of society in which a handful of billionaires like the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson will control our political process for their benefit and their benefit alone.

If 20 doctors saw your child and 19 said there was something wrong and agreed on what was wrong and agreed if it was left unattended would ruin your child’s life and 1 doctor said there was nothing to it, would you do nothing?

Bull Shoals police chief arrested in federal excessive-force case April 12, 2014 at 8:51 a.m.

Probably because he was their boss and had the power to fire them. That would still be no excuse.

After 5 years, Sebelius resigns April 11, 2014 at 7:49 a.m.

Sebelius should have been fired after the rollout of the ACA website was such a failure. She was the most accountable person for the website being unprepared and inadequately load tested.

Koch group’s first ads hit Democrats in 2 states April 9, 2014 at 6:48 a.m.

There should be truth in advertising with these groups. Freedom Partners should be really called "Freedom to Plunder the US" and Americans for Prosperity should be renamed "Koch Brothers for Prosperity of the Koch Brothers".

Scare tactics backfire April 6, 2014 at 7:59 a.m.

Climate scientist have been forced to enter the political arena because Republicans under the control of the fossil fuel industry have made this a debate based on politics rather than on science. Yet again we have wealthy interests, in this case oil, gas and coal industries, buying politicians to run the country for their interests rather than the best interests of the country.
