Sen. Bobby Glover, D-Carlisle, Thinks You're Confused

State Senator Bobby Glover apparently thinks we're all a bunch of DumbArkies (or at least 69% of us).
According to this article, even though 69% of us DumbArkies voted for annual legislative sessions, Senator Glover thinks we were uninformed (read ignorant) about the amendment so he wants to change it.

He goes on to explain to us DumbArkies via Fox16 that we were only allowed to vote on the amendment because the State Legislature so magnanimously put it on the ballot because they didn't think it would get approved anyway. WHAT?! Are you kidding me?!?! So, Senator Glover just wanted us DumbArkies to think we were part of the democratic process, but since we didn't do what we were supposed to do, he wants a do over.

And the lesson that Senator Glover has learned after hearing from 69% of voting DumbArkies? Don't let the people have a say in such matters. (Read the article.)

Personally, this DumbArkie feels safer when our legislators aren't in session. So maybe Senator Glover is right, but he still shouldn't tell 69% of voting DumbArkies that they didn't understand what they were doing.
