Upset: Republican wins surprise blowout in Arkansas Senate special election

Let’s read some 2014 tea leaves, shall we?  First, some background on an Arkansas special election that was decided earlier this week:

he special election for a northeast Arkansas Senate seat vacated by a lawmaker who resigned over ethics violations will be an early bellwether on the fight to protect the state’s Medicaid expansion, as well as Democrats’ chances in the November election. Voters head to the polls Tuesday to cast ballots in the special election between Democrat Steve Rockwell and Republican John Cooper for state Senate District 21 seat that covers the Jonesboro area. The winner will serve the remainder of the term of former state Sen. Paul Bookout – a Democrat. The race for Bookout’s seat between Rockwell and Cooper has centered on the key issue facing lawmakers when they return for next month’s fiscal session – whether to continue the state’s “private option” plan to expand Medicaid.

Craighead County has not been represented by a Republican in the state senate since reconstruction.

We must talk and talk and talk everyday pointing out the daily changes in our lives being forced upon us by the federal gov.  I used the new light bulb laws to get 2 stone cold democrats to agree that government is getting to intrusive in our lives. They did not realize the light bulbs they like will no longer be available to them. And agreed that the government should have no say over what they choose to buy. If we point these things out to the clerks we shop with and the co-workers we see maybe people will begin to come out of they're slumber. every time I see government costing me time and or money I try to point it out to those people right there who can see exactly what is going on. Most people need help connecting the dots. We have 2 years to plug away


Hay! mary although I agree with you, we can talk all we want to, its not going to make any changes because, what we face today its not about government its about spiritual thinking can anyone see that happening 

So...glad that Texas has a dedicated Republican who will stand by his word!   Christian and conservative to the core.  (could use more for education,though)  Lived her all my life and would never live anywhere elso.  Unless the lying, loose language, manipulator Wendy Davis is elected.   What is it about Democrats-and their corruption??

I suppose it starts at the top(POTUS) and trickles down.

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
