The Little Rock voters were snookered into approving $22 Million of the sales tax increase to appease the downtown Little Rock crowd of city politicians and developers. And that group (the Tech Board) is hell bent to spend every dime of it tearing down building to build a "tech park". Now we'll have lawyers getting "welfare" in this lawsuit. There is a perfectly great building sitting mostly vacant in downtown area that was abandoned by Acxiom when they moved an operation to California. It has parking, and tons of space. But it doesn't require lawsuits, demolition, architectural planning, etc. Oh well, it's just our tax dollars.

I wonder why Little Rock has so many private schools with very expensive tuition rates? I wonder why certain parts of this city are almost exclusively white? If you look, you'll see a steady stream of white liberal Democrats coming and going from these neighborhoods and schools. They are members of the Hypocrite Party. They want equality but just not in their neighborhood. They will use all their ill-gotten gains to preserve this lifestyle while they curse those who have left this city for schools and quality of life. They even demonize and defend against Charter schools like one my grandchildren attend that is black majority. Now they want to protect the investment of a few developers (movers and shakers) in the downtown area at the expense of those who must commute to their Little Rock jobs from the surrounding areas. These hypocrites are just like the rest of us..only dressed better and living in finer homes. They know how to play the race card better as well. They feed on apathy and ignorance, and are getting fat on both. "Blue and True" is what was built just east of the I-30 downtown. A blue dress and a true liar....that's the symbol of the democrat party. May it rest in peace.
My mistake...but maybe his nephew is also named "Wally". That would explain it.
I'm confused, Wally. We go for it on 4th down with a pass when a field goal would have been better....maybe it would have been good practice for the game-ending f@*k up. Gutsy play then.....later on when Brandon was on a roll throwing the ball...we go conservative with 3 Frank Broyle's running plays taking the ball and the game out of Allen's hands.....we go into a shell. Two critical times in the game and we make bad decisions on both. Is this what a multi-million dollar coaching staff buys you? Or well, it could have been worst.....we could have TCU's staff.
Forgive me, Jesus, or whatever God you profess to believe in, but bringing middle eastern refugees to this country without knowing who they are is being naive and bat-crap crazy. It's ironic that OBama has "had it" with all this talk about terrorists/refugees. Of course, he and his family are being protected 7-24 by a multimillion dollar security force. Meanwhile back in the real world....it ain't so for most of us. We have enough uninvited persons (illegals) here already without seeking out and welcoming another 10,000 that we must feed, clothe, educate at the expense of the 50% who are still working in this country. You want em...you support the cause...then put your money where your mouth is!!! Sponsor one or more....and pray to your God they are all just good people.
The idea of having a tech park has gone from being a noble cause to becoming a land grab war at taxpayers expense. I thought the whole idea of the tech park was to create an environment that encouraged startup companies that would ultimately create high-paying jobs for this area. But once the decision was made to locate "downtown", this project became another "project" for the developers...this one using OUR money rather than theirs. Now the price of this project is going to increase. Mr. Mays has complicated it with his lawsuit. He also wants more money for the inconvenience of moving....over $300,000 more. Don't we have success stories of start-up companies that were formed in the basement or garage of some house? Is the tech park idea all about attracting creative thinkers or selling more downtown real estate, and enriching a few developers? I guess it really doesn't matter. It's only our money they will be using to play these silly games.
We already have too damn many illegals here to justify adding another 10,000 to the rolls that ONLY THOSE OF US WHO PAY TAXES MUST SUPPORT. All of you so-called do-gooders need to sponsor one of these people if you believe it what you say. Otherwise, just keep writing this crapola. I remember the Cubans...Bill Clinton does too since they cost him a strutter step on his way to fame and fortune as the womanizer in charge.
If Arkansas most if not all of the terrorist's activities in this country are the result of middle eastern non-citizens, then why would you want to invite more of them to come here? That's the perception of these refugees. Why would we want to expose our legal population of citizens to potential harm? Only the naive would agree with OBama. Remember the Cubans. Ft. Smith certainly does. And Bill Clinton does too!!
Jerry Jones would rather pay some woman-beater Millions, and over-pay an aging gun slinger QB with injury issues rather than paying to get a first-rate QB for the future. How can anyone so rich be such a fool? Dallas is getting what it deserves....another losing season.
This is a no-brainer. Now if only that idiot in the white house would come to the same conclusion......
