It’s time to take these concealed arrows into the Church of Unpopular Truth and start firing.

John Brummett can take his snark and go write for MSNBC while in the mean time getting out of Arkansas.

"Guns and fetuses-These are the stars of the state Capitol. We ought to designate them the official state concealments. By the time this session ends, they’ll be the only things women in Arkansas are allowed to carry."

That's a keeper!

She can carry my beer from the fridge to me, opened of course,...

Calm down libs, it is just a joke:
Joke (noun, verb, joked, jok king. noun) "something said or done to provoke laughter or cause amusement, as a witticism, a short and amusing anecdote, or a prankish act: He tells very funny jokes. She played a joke on him."

One of John's best columns.
It's one of those days he's come to the point of utter disgust with Arkansas. I know the feeling.
And Tankersley, before you start telling everybody you disagree with to leave Arkansas, it's quite possible John has lived here longer than you have.
Also, before you tell me to go back where I came from. I'd like to point out that I first came to Fayetteville in 1950 (arrived by train) to marry an Arkansan. My first child was born in what was then called County Hospital, on the site that later became Northwest Regional,
College Avenue was indeed tree-lined.
So I lived here before you were born, Tank, and you can find another way to answer arguments.

Women are good things to have around when you need them. Kinda like a coon dog.

Trolls are OK as long as they stay under bridges.

I am not suprised that you defend Brummett's crap. He likes making insulting remarks about our state and the people as well.

Oh yeah, and I'm sure all the 4th District voters like hearing that their votes don't mean anything and Tom Cotton was purchased into office.

oh the pedantic John Brummet
i had to look up one word:
mistimed (not comparable)

1.Done at the wrong time.
as in Beebe mistimed his retirement.
Good one!

hogheaven77,..do you know where they keep the ice cubes? know your way around a kitchen?
where the refrigerator is?

i do know what a joke it tho. but the question does moneymyst know?

that was interesting coralie, you are one of the only real Arkansas folks!
it is accepted in our society for those who are part of a family or state in this case to critic it as they are also criting theirselves, in a manner showing they love and care about it enough to point out obvious faults that can be corrected.
so thanks John B for pointing out the foibles of arkansas wo we can open our eyes wider as we all love arkansas. it can be even better if we choose wiser when we vote.

Moneymyst doesn't not know what a joke it tho. My wife thought it so humorous that I am being rewarded by being alowed to do the dishes for a week.

Just out of curiousity, did you send that from your Blackberry or did you just type it real fast? I'm, sure John Brummett represents the views of his readership down in populist country, folks up in the Ozarks (aside from the few rainbow bright hate all things not Liberal leaners that stick close to the library and Dixon Street head shops) tend to think a little clearer.

RE: Trolls are OK by Coralie

I can't be in the Washington County Jail, Federal prison, under a bridge, and in an apartment over my sister's grarge all at the same time. You liberials need to get your minds together and come up with one.

Unlike right-wingers, who repeat the same talking-points over and over, liberals have more diversity.
