The kitchen door is open. If you can be open and accountable enough to answer some questions, listen to some doubts, and take a little bit of heat without resorting to a tantrum then you’re welcome to come on in. If you’re selling something that isn’t what you say it is, try another sucker.

This law doesn’t protect any monument from being moved. It spreads the authority in confusing ways into a labyrinth of bureaucracy, enough to make it more difficult for citizens to determine which entity and what level of government is actually responsible.

That is something that takes honest dialogue not the vogue in these socially and politically volatile times.” State Rep. Karl Oliver ignited […]

The world is full of people who pine-on about charting futures, and the importance of moving on, not living in the past, super new government programs, and the like. But history is the only certainty from which we learn. The future is a much easier place to be for those who haven’t studied the lessons of the past, and therefore aren’t prepared to make an impact on the present.

Imagine, not only would the state be saving $14 million during each Session, but then we’d realize savings over and above the current expenditures of a full $28 million every other year by not having them report at all.

Let’s find someone to throw in legislation to get rid of the special legislative retirement plan (SLRP) and Mississippi will be well on the way to reducing one of the biggest problem expenses in state government.

Most rank-and-file lawmakers are given info on a need-to-know basis, and apparently they don’t need to know many things until it’s time to vote. This strikes me as odd, that secrecy and timing strat-e-gery have increased even as Republicans have increased their hold on the Legislature to a super-majority. The Democratic Party is barely a going concern in state government these days. From whom is the leadership trying to keep secrets?
