"Nobody is for Hillary. That woman is just unpleasant." Bubba got that right. He could have elaborated by saying she was unethical too. The AR-15 is not the problem. The murders in Orlando were the result of another failure on the part of those that we PAY to keep us safe....that being our own government and those who set policy and direct enforcement. Had they done their job, the shooter in Orlando would have to kill all those people with a hand gun....or maybe he could have fulfilled his death wish by exploding a bomb. Then who would we blame? The truth is this administration has made the enforcement of Obamacare a higher priority than the safety of its citizens. Checking income for insurance subsidies, making coverage mandatory by hiring thousands of enforcers......I just hope the wounded had their Obamacare card when they were admitted to the ER.

Boltar: I really can't see how you can compare the 1972 version of the Post to the 2016 one we see today. Check you rose colored glasses. The Post exposed Nixon, but since then have failed to drive the likes of Bill Clinton out of office for blatant sexual harassment, lying to a federal judge (and to the American people). But ole Bill is DEM. I'm not a Trump supporter, but I would never vote for another Clinton for any political office. In an election between the bitch and the blowhard....go figure.
As long as the media sets game schedules so that the SEC can rake in Billions, there will ALWAYS be empty seats for Hog games. We don't need to spend $200 million to add to the problem.
A headline in the Post aimed at any Republican presidential candidate should never be taken as "fact", and certainly not NEWS. Propaganda, unpaid political advertisement for the DNC? Yes!
Once again...OBumer has fueled debate over a tragedy. He refused to use the term "Radical Islamic Terrorism" and haplessly defends his decision. How simple would it be to just say it, and maybe then we can focus on stopping it. But arrogance, elitist superiority, ignorance, and the lack of any real leadership skills have lead to this pissing contest.How many of these Radical Islamic Terrorist could we identify if we focused our government manpower on this rather than hiring thousands to check income verification for Obamacare government subsidies, and mandatory enrollment. Obumer chose "free crap" over lives. It wasn't the weapon that killed these 49 people....it was a failed policy.
The Democrats are dead in Arkansas. Resurrecting Bill Clinton is a joke. He hasn't engineered a successful political campaign in years. Both and Hillary are elitist who pretend to care on their way to the bank. Bill can still fool some people, but Hilliary never could. I wish they would just go away...maybe on a barge down the river taking what few supporters they have with them.....
What Mr. Hart doesn't say about payday lenders is that they enable those who use them to continue making bad decisions about money. My dad use to say, "learn the difference between want and need". Those residing in some parts of this city don't have to use payday lenders when they have rich parents, grandparents or other family members to bail them out every time they make bad choices.
Let's admit that the alternative to Trump is a proven loser at everything she has touched. The only "thing" she has ever run is her mouth and she sure knows how to do that. She's failed at everything she has touched, except staying hitched to a masterful politician. She's more elitist than Trump, more hateful, vengeful, and angry. Blair's papers said it all. HRC should have locked herself in a small room and stayed there. She has no genuine feelings except for her own self-serving interest. And as a policy wonk, she has already proven a failure.
Riverfest has run its course and like so many other "events" is on the downhill. There are just too many other choices competing for the almighty entertainment dollar. Prior to this Riverfest event we hand Rexfest, Greekfest, Toad Suck Days, and the increasingly popular Cinco de Mayo crapola. Changing the format, the dates and increasing the ticket prices, and the limited safe parking didn't help. Also, I wonder if all the press about crime in this city might have added to the problem. I for one never attended this event. I often threatened to take my small children as a punishment, making them walk around smelling beer farts all day long.
Some of us older Little Rock residents who grew up on the east side of Main street worked like hell to get away from there. We welcomed the malls to replace the clutter of downtown with it's overpriced parking lots, parking meters, very limited food outlets, and the homeless haven it became.We rejoiced when we got to drive a car and replace our bicycle. Now we could travel outside our small neighborhood. We could explore. We could expand and learn. Now some folks and greedy developers want to take us back in time. I'm not ready to buy into that again.
