End policy of separating children from parents at border, Arkansas bishop, Congress members urge June 20, 2018 at 9:44 a.m.

Anthony Taylor, bishop transplant from Oklahoma, came here with an agenda. His first official proclamation was on why Catholics should open their hearts, their homes, their wallets to support all these immigrants (including those here illegally). He published an op-ed stating that breaking the laws of our government regarding immigration was the right thing to do morally. If fact he said it would be sinful not to. So, with this backdrop, why should we give a damn what he says. I don't.

BRUMMETT ONLINE: A mere yip of protest June 20, 2018 at 9:34 a.m.

Democrats and their co-conspirators are using the word "asylum" to mislead Americans into thinking that all these people coming here illegally are oppressed. This is just another scam. Three hots and and a cot is okay for our soldiers, and these kids are getting the same, including a safe place out of harm's way. We prosecute parents for child abuse when they leave their children in cars. These parents are guilty of the same abuse when they drag their kids here as they break our immigration laws.
New campaign slogan: Make Arkansas a sh**hole state. Vote democrat!!

Little Rock director wants citizens committee created to study city's form of government June 19, 2018 at 12:17 p.m.

I agree that this issue needs discussion. We can't make one change without looking at this mayor-manager issue. What would be ideal and timely would be for all the current mayoral candidates to WITHDRAW so we won't have to waste another FOUR YEARS before this important issue can be fully discussed and resolved. If any of these candidates really care about the future of Little Rock, they would withdraw. I don't believe a new face in city hall as the semi-ceremonial mayor will help.

Scoring guides used by Arkansas Medical Marijuana Commission members to rate pot growers varied June 19, 2018 at 10:17 a.m.

The state is having trouble deciding who will be the next group of instant millionaires, especially when pot becomes a recreational drug (phase two of this clever plan). I wonder if anyone has given thought to how difficult it is to undo a constitutional amendment after we discover what a clusterf**k we've created?

Any excuse will do June 18, 2018 at 12:48 p.m.

I wonder how many of the LRSD's schools are "academically failing" and are still here? We know they have not been hurting for money (fiscally sound) thanks to the $1 billion in tax dollars given to them (with unfettered oversight).
If we ever expect our city to become what so many want it to be, then we must have alternatives to the currently failing traditional public schools. Charters are an alternative to packing up and moving to the surrounding cities; and many of those that do are the type of young, family professionals we need to retain or attract. Not everyone who lives here can afford the high cost of private schools.
I'm sure Tidmore's facts have some merit, but I know my grandchildren are in a charter that is minority white. So I guess there are exceptions. I believe the charters provide the needed alternatives and operate without racial inequities.

Immigration rule draws ire of lawmakers; family separations decried, but legislative fix elusive June 18, 2018 at 12:32 p.m.

Kudos to Trump for having the courage to do what so many of us believe should have been done years ago. Of course, this is another example of how screwed up our wink and nod immigration policy of ignoring the laws has become. So liberals and a few misguided others are pissing and moaning about separating a child from his parents. Wonder how most of these same folks explain separating a child in the womb from his mother? I guess there is a double standard again.
If the Congress does anything I do wish we could move toward eliminating this crap that allows a wet-back to slip across the border, drop a child (birth) and prey on our charity and generosity to take care of both of them because the illegal immigrant's baby is declared a citizen. This is pure stupidity.

Bank bill eases up on pot cash June 17, 2018 at 12:23 p.m.

I see the same problems coming to this state. We foolishly pass amendments that conflict with FEDERAL laws and somehow expect it to all work out. It's just a clusterf**k waiting to happen for Arkansas. At least our government leaders are taking their time making this happen. But even so, we have brewing scandals on the horizon.
Could it be that the conflicts (drugs and illegal immigrants) between federal law powers and goofy state's perceived rights will lead to another civil war. Let's hope it's not bloody.

City director delays proposal to change Little Rock board makeup June 17, 2018 at 12:07 p.m.

Hendrix has the right idea...just wrong timing for it. Her proposal doesn't go far enough. I agree that we only need one director for each ward; but we also need to rid ourselves of this two headed city government. It should be either a mayor or a city manager but not both. I've heard all the comments about these new seekers being progressive, products for change and direction. But no matter how you slice it, the mayor has limited powers. If we are going to change, let's do it right for once. Unfortunately, we have this 4 year term mayoral election facing us.
Bottom line is the lack of significant progress in Little Rock is as much a product of our form of government as the people we elect to serve. I don't see that changing for the next four years, or longer.

Hot Springs exec resigns after remark directed toward black resident of gated community June 14, 2018 at 2:34 p.m.

Packman - I raised similar concerns by stating that if the race roles were reversed would this be a BFD, or if both parties were the same race? No one here has answered my questions, therefore I feel most are just looking for a white man to hang based on the current PC we saw for 8 years under the previous racist president. If HS wants to fire this guy that is their right....it's also their right to give in to pressure from a black man who probably had his feelings hurt and the chip on his shoulder got knocked sideways.

For Razorbacks fan known as 'Hognoxious,' 15 minutes of fame has been 33 years in the making June 14, 2018 at 12:01 p.m.

There are limits to what is reasonable, acceptable behavior. Heckling players is one thing, but umpires? Theirs is a thankless job. They make split second decisions and are RIGHT a high percentage of the time; in business. their percentage would make them super stars.
Being obnoxious is not fan friendly behavior.
