Another Griffin aide sets '20 plan

"Ray, who has worked in Republican Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin's office since 2017, said he wants to fight for lower taxes, limited government and Arkansas values in the state House of Representatives." Taxes are so low government is already limited. The less public services the better. And what are "Arkansas values"? What is more chameleon-like than that? It's whatever the listener wants it to be: Anti-human rights? Pro-racism? Pro-guns? The Bill of Rights is not multiple choice to hide behind something as ephemeral sounding as "Arkansas values." Stand for something meaningful. And why does a no-show job like Lt. Gov. need two staffers?

Trump absent from G-7 climate session

The certainty of intellectually lazy people, even in the face of the obvious, sometimes amazes.

Can make firms exit China, Trump asserts

Trump and his immediate staff know about as much law as my dog. He wants a socialist form of "free enterprise": you can only deal with whom the government dictates or not. Where will MAGA hats and Ivanka's clothing line come from? And I don't have a dog.

Man admits guilt in child-porn case

Every press release on these cases is exactly the same: Except the date, the defendant, the number of images, and the county it happened in.

Family, friends mourn UA grad found dead in burning SUV in Dallas; suspect in killing in custody

Jail records never show the attorney. You waste time looking there.

It's discounted because Russians wrote the software with a back door in.

Trump: Dane said no nastily

Trump lacks all human empathy so any rejection is "nasty." How would he respond if Russia asked to buy Alaska back? Or Hawai'i? OK, Hawai'i maybe because the first time Hawai'i was mentioned in something other than his idiot birther conspiracy, he didn't seem to recognize that Hawai'i is a state. And has been for 60 years.

U.S. Sen. Tom Cotton backs buying Greenland, says he floated idea to Trump, Danish ambassador

"Why aren't we talking about buying Greenland." Maybe because Greenland will never sell. The fact anybody asks that question raises doubts about them. The U.S. doesn't always get its way in the world. With Trump in charge, the rest of the world doesn't take us seriously. Watch Fox News and you'd think this was the second coming of Jesus. Why not ask Venezuela or Qatar if they want to sell or be a U.S. state for their oil? Same logic. Or lack of it.

Arkansas school district chief recalls casino pitch; JP argues private talks don’t count as meeting

Doesn't consider this an "actual meeting"? That's BS. This also seals it: The Pope County Quorum Court and County Judge obviously violated FOIA. Now the prosecutor has to make a decision to charge or not. However, he's conflicted. He needs to get out of it now and call the Prosecutor Coordinator's Office and get a special prosecutor appointed.
