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.

Arkansas Supreme Court upholds state's lethal-injection law March 19, 2015 at 4:39 p.m.

Pulaski County Circuit Judge Wendell Griffen - a racist bench-legislator. His ruling totally ignored case law already on the books involving the death penalty and acceptable modes of execution. His own political agenda was laid out clearly in his ruling, not the law or the Constitution. It is time to retire this guy!

Stodola remarks on unemployment, crime reduction in address March 19, 2015 at 4:33 p.m.

Mayor Mark "The Fraud" Stodola, flashes falsified crime statistics to "prove" he is fixing the problem. Yet the real, reported crime numbers are NOT down. It certainly makes one wonder exactly what criteria his folks used to find some tiny bit of data that appears to show a reduction in crime!

But Stodola has to find a way to try to justify his massive "we gotta have a sales tax increase to fight crime" mantra from a few years ago...

State's high court stays court case over LR district takeover March 19, 2015 at 4:26 p.m.

The fact that (not so Honorable) Judge Wendell Griffen has a hand at all in this case is a major concern. There are few judges in the history of this state more racist than he - and a friend of the cluster of race-baiting lawyers that have fought the LR/Pulaski County schools for years. He should have recused himself from the case... And now, the Arkansas Supreme Court...

What does the law say regarding school distress? Its gives a window for remediation, then if the problem isn't significantly fixed, the state is suppose to take over the district. Guess what - several individual schools are failing students and the community miserably, and have been for quite some time. Nothing has been fixed. One significant part of the problem is the teacher's union - and THEY are the ones putting up the bulk of the fight against the state doing it's LAW-mandated responsibility.

And lest we forget - the LRSD is one of the highest-funded (per student) districts in the state. But watch - this will all come down to demands for more money more money more money...

Sigh

Senate approves bill to reduce lottery scholarships March 9, 2015 at 5:50 p.m.

The absolutely ignorant bias demonstrated via postings boggle the mind.

Let's see- what is it about the scholarships that "get in the GOP's way"? Where does any idea come from that the GOP is trying to hurt the system?

It's really quite a simple thing- the lottery isn't taking in enough $$$ to fund estimated obligations at current levels. Since there is no legal way to fund them outside the lottery law, SOMETHING has to be done to prevent an unlawful deficit. They cannot write checks they cannot cash!

But hey- blame the GOP if you want (even though they have no hand in the current situation).

Arkansas panel OKs eliminating death sentence as penalty February 26, 2015 at 8:39 a.m.

The death penalty IS both a deterrent and a tool for prosecutors, WHEN it is actually used/carried out.

The current legal wrangling are the product of liberal judges and abuse of the system.

The solution is simple- reauthoruze tge use of gallows (hanging). No worries of drug cocktails.

Of course, a genuine head shaker can be found in al the feigned concern for "humane" executions (as in "pain-free"), yet never a consideration for the victim or their families.
What ever happened to the concept of choosing to unlawfully take a life means you choose to forfeit your own?

Parolee apologizes for vandalizing vehicle, report says February 23, 2015 at 11:40 a.m.

Sigh...

What part of "parole" does this idiot not understand? Conditions of parole include keeping your nose clean. Destroying someone's vehicle kind of doesn't fit that criteria.

He probably know he won't spend any real time in prison because they are full.

I say take a bat and bash him with it. See how sorry he is for it then...

House endorses African-style hair braiding bill February 18, 2015 at 5:04 p.m.

So- these "hair braiders" never do any other hair service (cutting, coloring, conditioning, etc)?

If all one did was the braiding, I can understand this.

Embattled Debaltseve falls to Ukraine rebels; troops retreat February 18, 2015 at 12:09 p.m.

When will the media actually report facts? I have friends who live in Ukraine. The U.S. Medua is playing friendly with Putin and his lie machine.

These were primarily Russian troops, using Russian-supplied weapons, under orders directly from Putin.

We are simply so side-tracked with our inept and Islam-loving president and ISIS to pay attention to Ukraine. Putin violated the cease-fire to capture this city. Yet the world just sits back and fiddles.
