You could have predicted this kind of crapola. When we passed the amendment to increase the pay of our legislators, allow them to meet every year with extended deadlines, we opened to door to trivial matters such as this. There is no need for this bill. It's a response to an overly-zealous sector of population who are trying to get special recognition for their lifestyles. I don't subscribe to their lifestyle; however, I don't deny them the right to live it. I also respect the rights of a business owner to make choices as to whom he wants as his customers..not hiding behind a religious grounds argument, but based on what he decides; it doesn't require a special law to make this decision for him.
Even if this bill becomes law, it will not tarnish the image of Arkansas. When you are #49, you can't get much lower. There are so many other more important matters that this social engineering battle.

A question of priorities March 29, 2015 at 12:54 p.m.

America has been redistributing wealth in this country for years. And look at the results.
More folks on food stamps, SS disability, welfare of all kinds. But that's not good enough for the JB fan club. Now you want us to pay someone just because they have some minimum wage job; they're a high school dropout, single parent; they expect us to provide them with a cell phone, HD cable TV, health care, transportation, housing, snd other assorted welfare. They made bad life choices and YOU want the rest of us to reward them for it. Not just occasionally, but permanently. You want to take $$$ away from those who made wise choices, spent long hours, stayed focused and honest to give to these sorry excuses for Americans. You demonize success and reward failures. Insanity is defines as doing the same things over and over expecting different results. And the nanny state is insanity.
It's always the Koch Brothers (who actually create jobs) but never the Clintons who suck money from everywhere to support their scamming foundation.

In cynical finesse March 24, 2015 at 5:14 a.m.

So the lobbyist have figured out how to circumvent the intent of A94 by having open events for all the leg, knowing full well they can button hole one legislator and accomplish the same results as a $100 drink at the Capitol Hotel bar. A94 is scam.
Lobbyist still prevail, the leg gets a giant pay raise, and extended term limits. And we get screwed, except for free admission to Oaklawn, this year until their lobbyist and lawyers figure out a way around A94.

Beauties, politicians thumped in diaries March 22, 2015 at 2:54 p.m.

Bumper had the same political ambitions as Clinton. He just didn't have as many co-conspirators to cover up his shortcomings. And he had some. He was a blowhard, with a large ego, but some of what he spoke was and is the truth. He nailed the Clintons for what they are, and that we should accept as the truth. If Bret is trying to keep this document from being public, then he probably has some politically inspired motive. Maybe he's in bed with the Clintons like so many are in this state.

Cotton was trying to expose the candyass diplomacy that's infested our state department. Mission accomplished. Obama is an idiot. The world knows even if some of these postings are still trying to excuse his incompetence.

Confidence is eroding in Secret Service March 22, 2015 at 10:49 a.m.

Maybe the Secret Service has determined that protecting a person of so little consequence is a waste of effort, time and money.

The worst of times . . . March 22, 2015 at 9:43 a.m.

Cotton has spent more time in the middle east than Obama-Kerry=Clinton or Rice combined. I commend him for what he did. America - Peace through strength, not candyass diplomacy.

The subject of character March 22, 2015 at 9:37 a.m.

Diary comments made by Bumpers reflect his real feelings. They tell me that Bumpers was jealous of Clinton's success in achieving what he (Bumpers) could never achieve,POTUS.
Of all the crapola in these "historic" documents, this diary is the most authentic and real Dale Bumpers. His opinion of Bill and Hillary is spot on. This diary is an indictment of the political system we have created in this country. We continue to elect hypocrites who are more concerned about themselves than the good of this country.
Bill and Hillary Clinton are the products of our stupidity.

If you have a parole officer, call Jerry Jones for a contract to play for America's
team of misfits.

My NCAA tourney wish: Kentucky loses. Bobby Knight said it all when he stated that "this guy has been a cheater at two schools. I can't understand why he's still coaching"
