A tragic charade September 15, 2014 at 12:29 p.m.

Was it Bill Clinton who said "give them a hand, not a handout" when he tried to revamp the welfare system. As long as your sugar daddy Uncle Sam is paying you not to wed, you won't. The comment that married black couples have a poverty rate 4 times lower than singles is BFO- blinding flash of the obvious. The same statistical difference exists within all races. I'm sure the crime rate attributed to kids from single parent families is also higher than that of two-parent households...for ALL RACES. So don't try to make this a racial issue. Two CAN do a better job earning a living, raising a child, and contributing to society. Can anyone dispute that fact?

One strike, you're out September 13, 2014 at 7:54 a.m.

Players like Ray Rice don't have to worry about their future in the NFL. The NFL, its owners, and many of its fans are a forgiving bunch. Once Rice's "suspension" is lifted there will be some owner who will sign him to a contract. Look to San Francisco where they already have the same characters on their rooster. I'd include Dallas, but we all know that they aren't into a running game with their current pass-happy quarterback. Once the lawyers weed through the current NFL policy they will find some loopholes that characters like Ray Rice can slip through and continue to enjoy a wonderful life. There once was a joke going around that said: Hide your women and children, the ____ NFL team is in town. Never was it more true than today.

A skeptical senator September 12, 2014 at 12:02 p.m.

If it's morally and legally acceptable to terminate the life of the unborn because you don't want to support them, and that is how you justify your position on abortion, then why stop there? Why not just kill those worthless punk ass kids who break the law, contribute nothing to society and never will. They are more of a burden on the economy than the unborn. Join me is proposing the death penalty on all punks who break the law, and give police officers the "fire at will" command. We could get rid of a least one or more generations of worthless humans. If this is hard for you to accept, then let's just cut out all welfare let these people die a natural death due to starvation.

U.S. forecasts higher cost for private option September 9, 2014 at 12:31 p.m.

Soooooo....Obamacare ain't what it was cracked up to be......That's about as news-worthy as Obama's golf handicap. We knew it was a cluster-f@#@ when only the democrats voted for it and many including Pelosi never read the bill. So this news article qualifies for the B-O-H-I-C-A award.

Housing execs hired; crew isn't September 8, 2014 at 1:20 p.m.

Bloated staffs suck all the money that is intended to help those who really need.
This is a familiar theme with anything "government" touches. Where is the oversight for this taxpayer money? Seems like it is MIA!!!!

Letters September 8, 2014 at 7:48 a.m.

Aside from having entertaining shows preempted by that loser who calls himself president doing a press conference, the other irritant is pity posts here from people who are trying to defend this loser. He can't salute'; he can't lead; he can't speak without a script; he can't create jobs; he doesn't recognize his inabilities enough to surround himself with some thoughtful, intelligent staff. He is the absolute worst excuse for a president in my lifetime (and I remember Jimmy Carter). Two years can't pass fast enough so he can write another bogus book about himself and fade away.

State's full-time staff dips by 71 September 7, 2014 at 10:21 a.m.

The accompanying chart shows that Clinton had the largest increase in the number of state employees, and the highest percentage of change. He also increase the payroll 59.8%, again the highest of the last four Govs. The smallest increase in number of employees is attributed to Beebe, but he had the second largest payroll % increase.
All this is good information. But the missing piece is the answer to this question: WHAT IS THE STATE'S POPULATION CHANGE DURING THIS SAME PERIOD?
From 1987 to 2014 the number of state employees has increased by over 23,000 (69%); the payroll has increased 154%. I'd bet the state population will show that government growth far exceeds the population it is intended to serve. And that is a problem we must address at all levels of government if we expect to leave a country to our grandchildren.

Tacks again imperil bikers on county roads September 5, 2014 at 11:58 a.m.

Roads were built for automobiles. Bikers can be arrogant, un-welcomed guests, especially on curvy roads. I suggest the biker crowd talk to their fearless leader of country government and see if he might have some extra money for more bike lanes. He's got $500,000 for some damn bridge anything is possible.

Light up the sky! September 5, 2014 at 11:52 a.m.

Buddy the Bridge Builder is talking to vendors about $500,000 for lights on a damn bridge while he beats up on city governments for more jail money. I wonder what a half million would do for jail space, or maybe improve the a few country roads for the spandex biker crowd. That might solve a tacky issue in western Pulaski County. Thank God this loser is not running for reelection.

An emotional appeal August 24, 2014 at 11:36 a.m.

Pryor's ad is misleading. His insurance company didn't "want to pay", but THEY DID.
Maybe being the son of a former senator, one of America's elite had something to do with that. There are others with Obamacare today that discover "that is not covered". I guess they can take a birth control pill to ease their suffering. When you rob 1/2 trillion from Medicare to pay for this Obamacare, you can cover a few pre-existing conditions. Kudos to Pryor for this "feel good" effective ad.
