Entergy says grid manager savings exceed projections May 14, 2015 at 10:13 p.m.

Ok folks... This is far more complicated than "capitalism"...

Under normal circumstances, the savings would be turned into lower rates for customers, as the Arkansas Public Service Commission would demand it. BUT-

Our President has launched his promised war on coal and other fossil fuel- sourced electricity. The demands made through regulation (some very likely a serious over-reach if authority) are driving rates up in every system that relies on fossil fuels (especially coal, which Entergy still relies on for a chunk of generation needs).

Man convicted in 1997 slayings could be eligible for release May 14, 2015 at 10:08 p.m.

Isn't it interesting that a double-murderer can serve less time than some crimes that are generally thought of a less heinous...

Panel OKs prosecutor pay raises after no one speaks against increase May 13, 2015 at 12:23 p.m.

Wow - how many in the private sector have gotten raises in the last year (or two)? How many have received 23%+ raises?

Sigh...

Cotton lone 'no' as Senate OKs Iran-deal review bill May 7, 2015 at 6:06 p.m.

Nice calling a sitting, duly-elected Senator an "immature jerk"... (Not)

Read your constitution. This bill actually weakens Congressional (and particularly the Senate) powers as delineated in the U.S. Constitution.

Tom Cotton has obviously read and studied the Constitution more than not only those bashing him here, but the rest of the Senate.

The bill was sold as a way for Congress to get to review an deal brokered with Itan. Thing is--- it legally falls under the constitutional provision relating to treaties.

Obama has forced this bad deal by skirting the law and the Constitution, then smiled as the Congress passed this do-nothing fluff... Because he knows that no matter how awful the "deal" is, the Congress/Senate can't muster a ⅔ vote against it.

Parole Board recommends commutation for killer April 1, 2015 at 11:25 a.m.

What's tbe point of have "life sentence" available as a sentence, if the board is going to recommend such a sentence for a CONVICTED MURDERER be massively shortened?

Arkansas senators reject racial impact summaries for bills March 23, 2015 at 4:58 p.m.

Sen. Joyce Elliott is one of the biggest racists since the days of Jim Crow laws and the old Democrat rule.

Elliott believes that white people and black people are incapable of living by the same legal standards, and that "people of color" need special consideration and exceptions to the law. Double-standards and race-specific legislation is a part of what perpetuates racism.

Bill to end daylight saving time in state fails in House March 20, 2015 at 5:08 p.m.

Our legislature has officially lost its mind. The vast majority of people HATE the flop back and forth to daylight savings.

Rep. Charlie Collins expressed concern "from a commercial standpoint"? Really? Does he not realize that if states would just continue to nullify the federal idiocy known as DST, it soon would be a moot point anyway? Does he not listen to his constituents? Oh - stupid question, as a lot of legislators have apparently grown deaf since the session began.
