Gov. Ivey has signed six death warrants so far. Apparently all lives are not precious.

Evangelical leaders see Trump as strong ally

I can't imagine having enough spare time to post as often as these two (or this one). And I have lots of free time, compared to most.

Evangelical leaders see Trump as strong ally

Just got around to reading these comments. I notice that HAH asked Packman if he was at Oaklawn this past weekend; Mozarky2 answered six minutes later, saying he couldn't make it. I may be way behind here. I didn't realize these two were one and the same. Prodigious post output numbers, if that's the case.

DRIVETIME MAHATMA: Interstates around Little Rock also local

I rarely drive freeways around central Arkansas nowadays. I began avoiding them about ten years before I retired. I found that other through streets, designed and built decades ago, are usually underutilized, are about as quick, are rarely blocked by accidents. Drivers are nicer too.

Local freeway drivers don't seem to realize there are other ways to get to where they want to be. And that's fine with me.

Firearms maker to bring over 500 jobs to Little Rock with new headquarters

MBAIV, the clawback clauses haven't worked well. HP in Connway eventually paid back 8% of its incentives; Beckmann Volmer in Osceola, nada. Welspun in LR is keeping on just enough help to avoid clawbacks. Companies take big risks when it's not their money.

Firearms maker to bring over 500 jobs to Little Rock with new headquarters

MBAIV, most everyone wants more industry. But how much taxpayer money should we spend to get each one? Spending taxpayer money on new industry has a checkered history in this state. Notice the governor didn't call a news conference when Welspun laid off most of its workforce in 2017.

Firearms maker to bring over 500 jobs to Little Rock with new headquarters

$18 million forgivable loans. $6 million outright grants. Tax credits and refunds not yet enumerated. Minimum cost per job for taxpayers more than $42k. Good deal? Not sure. Gun sales are volatile. We've lost money before on deals like this one.

Jet model grounded by airlines after crash, but Boeing, FAA back plane’s safety

Even after dealing almost daily with the FAA for decades, its incompetence still amazes me.

Trump's 2020 budget a record $4.75 trillion

For us folks on Medicare, it's good the Democrats took the House last election. And now we know for certain what Trump's campaign promises are worth.
