On appeal, gay pairs lose birth-papers case in Arkansas high court December 9, 2016 at 1:01 p.m.

Packman - my questions were more rhetorical than anything. I believe that our Constitution applies equal rights to ALL citizens. (but not illegals). There is really no reason to single out any race, religion, or lifestyle. It's all a lot of bunk to keep lawyers employed.

hah406- bills that are pre-filed or filed have not be cussed, discussed, passed by both houses or signed into law by the Governor. It IS speculation that any of these will get all the way to the Governor's desk.

On appeal, gay pairs lose birth-papers case in Arkansas high court December 9, 2016 at 9:25 a.m.

I'm not clear on this issue. What are the reasons for gay couples wanting to have both same-sex partners named on a "birth certificate", when clearly one of them had nothing to do with the birth? Is this another one of those "equal rights" that they feel they don't already have under the US Constitution? Is it more about acceptance than anything? Purple had it right...and it wouldn't take 100 lawyers and the Supreme Court to decide. Just add another line on the birth certificate.

Rail about rail, but as you do consider that the MetroPlan authority got the rail they asked for years ago when $20 million was spent for our little yellow tourist trolleys serving a few hundred at an annual operating costs of thousands. If you want to complain, then complain about misguided priorities. The downtown Little Rock establishment continues to dominate the narrative. Rock Regional Bus people can't effectively service the central Arkansas residents who want local transportation.

The left's gambles December 8, 2016 at 11:39 a.m.

There is a consequential differences between the theory and the reality. Democrats seem to focus on theory; thus far, it ain't working too damn well.

I remember those glory days when the Dems controlled everything. The Leg. Counsel members could bring agency directors to tears and destroy their budget. They ran state government. Governors back then spent one year of their two year term giving out political favors to those who helped them get elected, and the second yer campaigning for re-election. It was old school politics.....it worked for Nick, Mike, Bill and several others. It even got ole Bill elected president and now he has this dang school here to teach kids how to turn "public service" into fame and fortune.
These goobers passed their fair share of worthless legislation, even some that benefited their friends and family. But what the hell, let's not talk about what they actually did; let's focus on what some people THINK/FEEL those Republicans will do. It's the "chicken little" message.....but it really just chicken s**t.

BRUMMETT ONLINE: On the ‘no-rules’ frontier December 7, 2016 at 12:32 p.m.

BirdDog- don't believe everything you hear or read; never accept anything as being the whole story. Do your own research, or......you can sit in some Starbucks location and get your news from Twitter, Facebook, Twatter, or John Brummett. It's really naive and dangerous to accept news from any single source. Gone are the days when you might be able to trust a single source. How many years did the local media - radio,TV, and print ignore the whispers (true) about Bill Clinton and his preying on Arkansas women. They all were too wrapped up in the prospects of Clinton in the White House to expose the truth. Hypocrites all!!!

Little Rock delays vote on sewage plant December 7, 2016 at 10:30 a.m.

If "government" officials are still dealing with pipelines that are in the
watershed of our drinking water, then why trust an individual developer
to have the expertise to operate a sewage plant? It makes no sense. The welfare of thousands of central Arkansas residents should out weigh to wishes of one real estate developer.

Little Rock supports state splitting dual celebration of Lee/King birthdays December 7, 2016 at 10:20 a.m.

Let's add Hillary Clinton to this discussion and have a three holiday weekend...but only apply her holiday to the city of Little Rock so the Clinton "love in " can continue.

BRUMMETT ONLINE: On the ‘no-rules’ frontier December 7, 2016 at 10:03 a.m.

....."the media had long set the supposed rules of proper political conduct, but never with any enforcement mechanism"....The media has defined what they feel is proper political conduct. Demonize and distort if you don't agree. Trump exposed these elitist for what they are. The truth is that most Americans DO NOT TRUST THE MEDIA to provide accurate information. Reporters for some media outlets no longer report the news, they offer judgment and opinion. Their stature in our society has been reduced to the same as door-to-door burial policy salesmen. This presidential election was a confirmation of the changing attitude of the American voter. Clinton tried and failed twice using the media's definition of rules of proper political conduct only to encounter the most unlikely candidates in political history.
