On appeal, Little Rock TV station says free-speech rights violated in election ads case

I guess the Press thinks "Free Speech" means free to broadcast lies, since they do it daily.

The current press makes me sick, I long for the days when you could trust the news to be the truth, rather than printing or repeating anything someone tells you without regard if it is the truth.

Trump wants to end heating aid program

In Arkansas, the elderly and disabled are given priority in that they are allowed to apply a month earlier than "other" low income families (125% of poverty). Their benefit is a one-time payment somewhere between $50 and $250 based on household size and income. There is a companion program later that assists families who in "crisis", meaning they are about to be disconnected or have been disconnected and the maximum benefit is $500. Since payments are made directly to the energy provider, the level of fraud is almost zero. This program was $1 billion nation-wide until the EVIL REPUBLICAN, George W. Bush tripled the funding in 2007 to over $3 billion dollars a year. The KIND DEMOCRAT, Barack Obama tried every year he was in office to do away or reduce this program but was not successful. THESE ARE FACTS, LOOK THEM UP.

Amazon, JPMorgan, Berkshire Hathaway creating new health care company

Warren, you don't have answers?

Well here they are:

1. Tort reform where seedy lawyers can't sue everyone just because the patient didn't get well in spite of the great medical care they received.

2. Reign in the big pharmacy companies that make drugs in China and India (never the US) for pennies and sell them in the US with a 10,000% markup.

3. Allow insurance companies to compete across state lines.

4. Elect members of Congress who represent people not big pharma and lawyers.

You know the answers but you profit from these companies and don't want anything to change.

Trump lauds tax bill as middle-class boon

Talk about fake news! The dim wits in the media keep repeating that the personal exemption was "doubled"! Really?

I'm an over 65 conservative who voted for our buffoon President, so let me do the “math” to see my big “tax cut”.

In 2018 without my “big” tax cut, I would have been able to take a $6,500 Standard Deduction plus another $1,850 over 65 deduction and $4,150 personal exemption for a total of $12,500 “Standard Deduction” …. Now with my “big tax cut”, my “Standard Deduction” is $12,000. Big tax cut???

Corporate rates get cut from 35% to 21% and individual rates cut from 39.6% to 37% big “middle class tax cut”. LLCs no longer pay the top personal rate so they are cut from 39.6% to 25%, who most commonly uses an LLC, lawyers and what profession are most members of Congress? Lawyers.

May I have the Vaseline, please.

Three UA sites, including basketball, baseball facilities, listed for alcohol permits

I've been going to UALR basketball games for years and I have enjoyed a cold beer during the game. I've never seen anyone drunk at these games and they are overly cautious about selling to anyone under 21.

If you don't like beer then don't buy one!

FYI to all you Baptists, How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ while there is still a log in your own eye?

It's a way for some schools to make money so they don't need so much TAX MONEY to operate sports.
