    It's too bad our politicians don't spend time and money telling us what THEY are going to do for us in a positive manner. Seems that ALL of them 'point fingers' at the opposition and sling mud (or in this case, it's just 'dust'). How about Mike Ross and his demo buddies do a little PRO campaigning and tell us what he thinks he can do to make Arkansas a better place to live and work? I'm really sick of all the demos and repubs doing nothing but spending mega-dollars on nothing more than smear advertisements.

    Well, Mr. FreeSpiritMan.. why don't you actually READ what I wrote instead of making silly assumptions? NOTICE - I said ALL politicians - both Dem and Repub. You think I'm an Asa guy since he happens to be the recipient of the mud in this particular case? I'm sure I'll get the opportunity to state the same opinion when Asa (or his minions) pull the same stunt against Mike Ross and his bunch. I'll REPEAT for you, since you don't seem to be able to read and comprehend what you just read. BOTH of these candidates (and their parties) are guilty of the same WASTE of their contributor's funds! Now we know why these fools requires MILLIONS to campaign for office.

    I don't think a $150 a year mistake on property taxes constitutes a big deal. Remember the Assessors office sends the amounts owed out assuming that there is a homestead exemption. Somebody probably just paid the amounts due without thinking. Now, Ross, on the other hand, knew what he was doing when he sold his rinky dink pharmacy for between a million and a million and a half. Oh yes, and he votes with the new owners and receives campaign contributions from them.

    Have to agree with Jimbob47. I would much rather hear about the candidates' views on education, health and such. That influences my vote more than 30 second mudslinging commercials. Please candidates, talk about your positives other the opposition's negatives.
