Legislators should absolutely NOT have access. Monies should be treated like grants with a grant-like, non-partisan approval process in place. Legislators can then ‘champion’ grant requests, but cannot approve or apportion funds.

There’s no question Big Pharma bears a lot of responsibility but AR is 2nd in the nation in opioid prescriptions. That means doctors are also greatly at fault. What is Rutledge doing about that? nothing.

Conditt left a 25min recording on his phone describing the bombs he built and his troubled personal life. I’m guessing he was gay and couldn’t come to grips with it because of his evangelical indoctrination. Often self hate results in lashing out externally. Very sad if that’s the case.

This is outrageous. Raise sales tax on groceries - which will hit the poor, elderly on fixed incomes and working families hard - in order to cut income taxes for the wealthy. Wow. Just. Wow.

He was a home schooled evangelical, not prog material. Guessing he learned to hate at home.

The author(s) of this article are very naive re the intentions and potential damage that can and likely will be done by foreign hackers. They can take down the entire power grid and have already made numerous attempts aimed at proving they can do so whenever they want. We’re all so worried about building a wall to keep out migrants; meanwhile, a Russian military hacker in a basement somewhere in Moscow could render every plane in the sky without instrumentation or communications at a moments notice.

Daily Beast is reporting that 3 kids in Greenbrier who participated in the walkout were given corporal punishment. Is that even legal in public schools?

Logic and reason from the ARDG ed board? Surely I’m dreaming.

What I think is being overlooked is that the extreme right is extreme because their base is extreme, not the other way around. Their ‘message’ is a result, not a cause. The issue is that their largely rural, undereducated base is frothing for slash and burn without regard to consequences, even for themselves. I’m just not sure how we change the minds of people like that. Until the GOP base says ‘stop the madness,’ it will continue. And their base consistently shows up when the Dems’ base doesn’t.
