Lawmakers complain Obama too aloof with Congress July 27, 2014 at 3:18 p.m.

Sorry Don'tDrink, this is the first time in our republic's history that a one party has blocked in every way possible the President of the US. If it happens in the future to a Republican president you can bet you bottom dollar it will be in response to the way Republicans have treated Obama. Hopefully it won't but don't bet too much.

GOP nominee got 2 home tax credits July 27, 2014 at 9:11 a.m.

As far as I'm concerned, anyone who this poor at managing their own affairs can't be trusted to run the affairs of a state.

Obviously community organizer skills don't work when you have to deal with people who have hated your guts from the day you take your job. Republicans in congress won't be worked with. They have a knife in one hand and a gun in the other just waiting for him to blink.

Tossed absentee ballots at 1,036 July 27, 2014 at 7:48 a.m.

I will bet that all 1036 people who's vote was denied were legal voters who paid the price for this stupid voter ID law and they should sue the state over it. And this was a primary! There will be 10 times this many people denied the right to vote in the Fall elections.

State board clears plan for prison July 26, 2014 at 8:29 a.m.

Arkansas has an incarceration rate of 552 per 100,000 population. That is the 8th highest rate among US states. If you compare Arkansas to nations there are only 3 nations that have a higher rate in the entire world and the US is one of those. We need to reduce our prison population rather than spend millions to build more space. Are we shooting for number 1 in the entire world in the number of people we jail? There has got to be a better way!

Bordering on madness July 25, 2014 at 1:43 p.m.

Pat, no one said we need another agency to handle immigration but the current agency needs a huge increase in funding to handle the job in a timely manner. For example, the immigration courts that determines refugee status is backed up and it can take a year or more for a hearing. You can’t put these people in jail and when they are let go until their hearing, in many cases they never show for fear of being rejected. If there was enough money to have the staff to do this in a week or so you could hold them until their hearing.

It will cost lots of money to close the border and much more money to build the government infrastructure to process and check out people who want to legally enter the US. None of this comes on the cheap. Are any of you complaining about how things are being done willing to pay the taxes to pay for all of this? If you are, let’s solve this problem. If not, you should quit complaining.

FAA lifts ban on U.S. flights to Tel Aviv airport July 25, 2014 at 8:20 a.m.

The ban was lifted regardless of the security situation because of pressure from Israel. The airlines are still in danger and considering what just happened in Ukraine, flying into a war zone is really stupid. If you want to blame anyone for anything blame the FAA for giving in to pressure from Israel. It's all about money not safety.

Strike kills 15 seeking safety at Gaza school July 25, 2014 at 8:05 a.m.

Hamas does not use US tax dollars to buy rockets but they do use money from Saudia Arabia and Qatar. Two countries that we stupidly count as allies. In a way it is our money supporting Hamas because these two countries wouldn't be able to do this without our military assistance and oil dollars.

Out of a job July 24, 2014 at 6:54 a.m.

"Raise the Min. wage, raise the cost of living." That's another lie that has never proven out!
