    Hypocrisy, Double Standards, and Lies

They... by OurVoicesAR

    Issue 3: #ARLeg Gift that Keeps on Giving

    We all know how the Arkansas Legislature “gifted” Arkansans with Issue #3 — the so-called “ethics amendment” that slipped in an extension of term limits. We find it’s a gift that keeps on giving, even more than the Arkansas Legislature had probably planned. When Joe Maynard and Brenda Vassaur-Taylor from Conduit in Action spoke to... by OurVoicesAR

    With Politics (and Life), Action is Truth

    New Jersey Governor and GOP Presidential hopeful Chris Christie says “I mean what I say and say what I mean.”  He says that, but somehow his actions tell a different story.  He praises compromise, but the other side has offered nothing and expects everything.
