Omar: Go to Israel, see 'cruel reality of the occupation'

Any country has the right to control its borders and to decide who can and who cannot come in to their country. We Americans have refused certain Israelis entry into our country based on their political beliefs.

Walmart workers protest gun policy

They think the gun is the problem. More people are killed in car wrecks so maybe walmart should stop selling tires. Many more people die of cirrhosis so maybe walmart should stop selling beer.

WALLY HALL: Lack of football leadership began with Long

Wally Hall often does a hatchet job (often deserved) on figures in the Razorback world such as Matt Jones and the sports world in general such as Mickey Mantle. With one notable exception (Bobby Knight) he tends to kick them when they are down. I was once a struggling college student working in the service industry and had the misfortune to wait on Mr. Hall. He was every bit as rude and obnoxious to me as he claimed Mickey Mantle was to him. It has been said that one may judge a person's character by the way he treats those over whom he has power. This would extend to those over whom he perceives he has power.
If Mr. Hall were a nice person it would be easier to overlook the sentence fragments that are so common in his writing as well as his often formulaic style (to say a is like b is like saying c is like d) that can be so annoying.
Ask yourself why Mr. Hall was not critical of Jeff Long when he was still the Razorback AD. There are only a few likely answers.

VIDEO: Coast Guard seizes 40,000 pounds of drugs on high seas

It is asinine to think that drugs coming into the country in other ways means they are not coming in over the southern border. Further, many of those who oppose a wall now supported it prior to President Trump's election. It was a good idea during President Obama's administration and it is a good idea now. Also, the president has never, not once, stated that "the drugs are all coming through the border where there's no wall". Anyone who claims he has is horribly mistaken since we can be sure such a person would never lie.

Trump turning to non-census avenue on citizenship question

Showing respect for our country and for those with whom we disagree is a sign of maturity.

Trump turning to non-census avenue on citizenship question

The executive and judicial branches are equal branches of our government and sometimes they do not agree. That doesn't mean that one branch is subordinate to the other. We are all Americans and our country has survived and will survive this disagreement over what is essentially a relatively minor issue.

Arkansas House rejects bids to scale back minimum wage hike

The minimum wage increase was an asinine proposal put forth to put the screws to the people. I would wager that most supporters have no clue of the negative impact on workers that proposal will have. The legislature certainly shouldn't try to overturn the will of the people no matter how stupid the exercise of that will is.

Arkansas delays announcement of medical pot dispensaries

Ridiculous! If newly appointed commissioners need to be "briefed" on the issues at the expense of patients, then they should not have been appointed!
