re: LR > NWA, again - Porkmeister
That’s an awful broad brush you’re using there. I personally don’t want to live in Little Rock-I’m not a fan of big towns-but there are some really nice areas and neighborhoods in Little Rock. Just like there are some very nice towns in Central Arkansas. I don’t get the NWA hate either. That is ...

re: South Alabama to hire Steve Campbell - Porkmeister
He really is a good coach and he wins wherever he goes. I hate it that the Bears are losing him, but you have to be glad that he is moving up. ...

re: Arkansas State AD still making improvements - Porkmeister
Good job by State. Nice to see them making the commitment to improve their football program. I went there last year when they played UCA and it was nicer than I expected. ...

re: If unifying the fanbase - Porkmeister
Malzahn is a proven coach. I don’t think many would call him “high school” now. He knows Arkansas and would be able to recruit well. Let the Little Rock games die prolonging that just makes things worse. Just a suggestion though, something that would be popular with the rest of the state is for ...

re: Tommy T at the NW AR TDC .... - Porkmeister
I miss the old WMS. Games were awesome there. Little Rock games aren’t what they used to be though and Fayetteville games are better than ever. Tommy may be partly right about one thing. Arkansas doesn’t corner the market on fans like it used to in central Arkansas and that will get worse over ti...

re: Data on Monuments to the Confederacy - Porkmeister
The clear message is people built memorials mainly around 50 and 100 years after the war. The only logical conclusion is that anniversaries are racist. ...

re: What's the story on Riverfest? - Porkmeister
Sounds like you've been in the wrong part of Little Rock. There are some very nice areas that aren't "ghetto as shit". As a matter of fact for the most part Little Rock is ok. It just has some really poor areas where you find most of the violence. ...

Little Rock isn't a shitehole. PARTS of Little Rock are a shitehole. There are parts that are actually pretty nice. ...

re: Uca Astate, LRU, which of these schools would you attend - Porkmeister
But if it was a good Greenhouse Party there would be a couple hundred people there. I don't think the students today experience that. It was also cool having Hendrix in town, they had some good parties and their shirttails parties were fun and unique (a party that originated in 1913 after Hendrix ...

re: Why is Hilton Head so popular? - Porkmeister
Tybee Island is great. I've been taking the family there for years now. It isn't as crowded, it isn't overtaken by cookie cutter housing developments and giant hotels like Destin and Panama City. I like the history and culture in that part of Georgia. Hilton Head is too commercial. ...

re: Is Little Rock a shithole or a nice clean city? - Porkmeister
I love the roundabouts in Conway. Once you are used to them (and if the other drivers know what they are doing) they are great. I lived in Conway for over twenty years and it been pretty awesome to watch that little town grow. The downtown has real potential and the city is making a real effort t...

re: What's the next symbol to fall, post flag erasement? - Porkmeister
I'm afraid this is the correct answer. The right thinking folks are going to lose their minds when they figure out the Arkansas flag is a battle flag cut down the middle then then put back together with the pieces inverted to make the diamond. ...

re: Newbie with a low post count has a question? - Porkmeister
Maybe you didn't see the guy had a CONFEDERATE flag on his car! Didn't you see that in South Carolina they have a monument with that SAME flag! You are a racist just for asking that question. You should watch tv more. Southern=racist. At least during this news cycle. P.S. If you disagree wit...

re: I Stand in Awe of Arkansas' Legislators - Porkmeister
As a good Catholic that doesn't believe in premarital sex could I refuse to make a kid born out of wedlock a birthday cake? This law is bad for a lot of reasons not the least of which is denying a group of people equal protection under the law, not to mention the very real economic consequences, I...

re: I Stand in Awe of Arkansas' Legislators - Porkmeister
I wish I could disagree with you. I'm still holding out hope that Asa will veto that craptastic legislation. Maybe he has enough cover from businesses. We can't say that we won't know what happens because of this foolishness, Indiana has shown us. ...

re: PSA: Dillard's and Sam's coming to Conway - Porkmeister
The population in 1990 was about 28k. Conway was still a pretty small town back then. Not that it is a big city now. ...

re: PSA: Dillard's and Sam's coming to Conway - Porkmeister
There was a tax increase voted on in November for the overpass and to build additional roads to improve traffic flow from Oak street to I40. It will also help fund construction of a couple big roundabouts near Lewis Crossing. We love roundabouts (but they are seriously cool). ...

re: Confederate States of America: The Demographics and Reality... - Porkmeister
Money and power were the central issues. There was over a trillion dollars (in today's money) tied into slavery. While the North was able to make money by financing and supplying slaves they managed to hold their noses. Once they weren't making their cut it became a wedge they could use to limit ...

re: What to do with 120 acres of pasture. - Porkmeister
I think you mean the Crop Reduction program. You can plant pecans and other native hardwoods. I believe the maximum amount of the time you can be in the program is 15 years. There is a lot of paperwork involved and there is upfront work that has to be done to the land to qualify. It does provid...

Calling someone an alien nowadays is not cool, the preferred term is undocumented extraterrestrial. Oh and Project Bluebook was a pretty good show back in the late 70's. ...
