JOHN BRUMMETT: Principles? Pshaw! July 21, 2016 at 9:53 a.m.

When ego and self-gratification gets in the way of winning, you see a Ted Cruz. It happens in sports, business and even the media. Say what you will, Brummett, but the mission is to defeat the Hilibitch. Now we can watch the Bernie crowd and see if they join in the "amen" chorus for HRC just like their leader has done.
Politics has become of game of who do you trust the least...and you vote accordingly. In this election it's HRC who I hope is the least trusted.

Don't go to pot July 18, 2016 at 8:58 a.m.

Here's a few questions that I need answered:
1. Just how many "regulated" locations will be selling TAXED marijuana in this state?
2. Where will they be located? If there a provision for "grow your own" if you live a certain distance from a AHD location, what is it?
3. What government controls are there for the "grow your own" alternative? Is it taxed? If not, what is the estimated percentage of users who will get a free taxation pass?
4. Is there enough revenue to pay for the added government cost of providing the necessary controls?
5. If there are regulated drugs that can be helpful for some medical conditions, what is the cost comparison of a state provided (cheapie) drug card for prescription drugs versus the cost of personnel, office expense, distribution and administrative costs associated with these amendments that the Health Department will provide?
6. If cigarette smoke is so harmful, even secondary smoke, what is the danger of marijuana smoke on the users or bystanders? Placing an unregulated substance in your lungs doesn't sound healthy to me.
7. On a personal note, I already have enough road obstacles like drivers on cell phones, texting, and drinking to want another one placing me in harm's way.

And justice for some July 11, 2016 at 11:33 a.m.

Timber ..this web site page is all about opinions. Mine is that we will probably never know what evil Hillary was hiding in the thousands of emails conveniently monitored and deleted by her legal team. But, based on her previous actions we can also opine that she lied to Congress on this matter. Recall that Nixon was impeached for the cover-up more than the act he was accused of promoting. History repeats. Ironically, Hillary has been a player in both hers and Nixon's scandals.

Jerry Jones at summit of NFL's power players July 11, 2016 at 9:04 a.m.

Wally has secured his VIP ticket to Cowboy games, and partying with the Jones. Jerry Jones has leveraged money from his "business" in Arkansas to build a financially successful franchise...one that can't win under his family management. The only positive to this story is that Jerry has screwed over Texas football fans with his "player decisions"...and the high price he charges to watch an also-ran football team. Texas bought into this farce.

Black Lives Matter protesters block I-40 bridge July 11, 2016 at 8:56 a.m.

The scene from the Blues Brothers movie where the Nazi group push protesters on a bridge into the water below would have been a fitting way to end this disruption of interstate commerce.

And justice for some July 11, 2016 at 8:46 a.m.

The mishandling of classified information is the distraction in this case.....distraction from the thousands of emails that would show Hillary Clinton using the power of her office to whore money for the Clinton Foundation....the largest money laundering operation in modern history. Lawyers and those who played one on TV or stayed at a Holiday Inn last night are just pissing into the wind to avoid the real issue.

Give it thought July 1, 2016 at 9:40 a.m.

"I hope the citizens of the United Kingdom were not guided by emotion or politics, two very bad reasons to make a vote." Duh! That is precisely the reasons for the vote. People in England want to take back their country. This vote was an indictment against failed policies administered by the "elitist" who ruled.
I hope Americans will think before they vote. And maybe review some history. Bill Clinton was elected in 1992 and 2 years later lost control of both houses of Congress(first time in over 50 years). Americans did think BEFORE they voted. And that Republican Majority helped shape the Clinton legacy with their Contract with America. Will Hillary be as cooperative if elected. Her history of stonewalling says NO.
So, Arkansans, protect yourself from Clinton by re-electing to Congress persons of courage who will fight for us rather than cave in to the Clinton-Obama continuation of misguided policies.

JOHN BRUMMETT: Viable law of the land June 30, 2016 at 7:22 a.m.

I can see similarities between this abortion RIGHTS issue and gun control. The left/liberals don't want any restrictions on a "woman's right to choose"; they believe these creeping laws like Texas are designed to do just that: take away their rights a little at a time.
Those of us who support the 2nd Amendment know how these lefties feel. Take away our rights a little at a time using the courts to do so. Sooner or later we won't have any rights left.
The same people that fear their rights to abortion are being challenged are the same who want me to give up my rights to own firearms. How ironic. But the liberals have always wanted to have it both ways.
A Clinton presidency does TO gun advocates what you claim she will do FOR abortion advocates....lock it down tight.

Arkansas can win June 30, 2016 at 7:05 a.m.

We have casino gambling in Arkansas. The so-called games of skill farce at Oaklawn, calling their casino the gaming room is the greatest snow job ever sold to the people of this state. You have to admire what Oaklawn's owners have been able to accomplish. We've come 180 degrees from when WR sent the state police into the spa city to remove and destroy hundreds of slot machines. Why? because casino gambling was illegal under Arkansas law. That law has not changed. Why not have more CASINOS? Why give Oaklawn and Southland a monopoly?

JOHN BRUMMETT: Reasons for hope June 28, 2016 at 9:02 a.m.

and there is a 6th reason for hope.....that the Hill and Bill scam will be further exposed leading to her indictment,and his foundation being exposed for the money laundering scheme it is.
Maybe from the ashes of the political death of this bitch, and the missteps of her blowhard opponent someone will rise forth and lead us to the promised land... in your dreams!!!
