The free app allows listeners to stream the station from any location there is a wi-fi signal so they can keep up with ESPN, high school sports, the Show with No Name and all of the programming the Buzz offers.

“The Buzz’s listeners are constantly on the move, whether it’s going to and from work, fishing, hunting, camping, going to games or hanging out with friends,” said Chris McMillen, founder and president of Mass Enthusiasm. “They required access to the Buzz that kept up with their lifestyle.

Guess What, Y’all? It’s Time to Fix Stupid in Arkansas

It's Time to Fix Stupid logo

Arkansas Citizens Form Group Because It’s Time to Fix Stupid

Political Action Committee Forms Arkansas Chapter, Plans Stupid Tuesday Primary

A nonpartisan group of informed, voting citizens is launching a new website for Arkansas voters, “It’s Time to Fix Stupid Arkansas.”

While that may seem like what all registered voters and concerned citizens want, the mission of the founders is to research issues and elected officials, inform citizens of their findings and educate them on where their votes might have the biggest impact in the 2016 election.

“The first It’s Time to Fix Stupid website was launched in Kansas,” said Joyce Wroten, a founder of It’s Time to Fix Stupid Arkansas. “There was such a response to that humorous website that the Kansas group set up a national website with the opportunity for state-level chapters. The Arkansas group will be the second in the nation, and several other states are in the exploratory stage.”

While the group’s purpose is serious, the goal is to use humor in exposing the absurdity of some of the recent legislative actions. The group wants fellow citizens to have a good time while learning about candidates and their positions on the issues. The group hopes this will capture the attention of the voting public before the next election.

According to the original It’s Time to Fix Stupid political action committee, some citizens remember a time when they sent the best and brightest to Washington and each state capital. This was a time when governing mattered, people sat down and worked out their differences, made laws and wrote budgets to build great things. But, those days are gone.

“You look at the trend of laws passed by the Arkansas legislature over the years, and it’s becoming apparent that many of them are being promoted from outside the state with little evidence of research that validates the need in the state. That’s true for requiring photo ID for voters, drug-testing welfare recipients, to name a few,” said Wroten. “The stuff that is coming out of Little Rock keeps getting weirder and weirder and weirder.”

The Arkansas Legislature is the least-educated state legislature in the country – 25 percent of its 135 legislators have no college experience at all, compared with 8.7 percent of lawmakers nationwide.

So do state legislators have to have a degree? The group says no, but feels that they should have – and demonstrate – the ability to ask the right questions and seek real answers for real problems in Arkansas. In other words, while at least using good common sense.

Nominations are now open at http://www.itstimetofixstupidar.com/nominations/. People are encouraged to fill out the form explaining how the elected official failed to demonstrate common sense, said outrageous things or embarrassed them or the State of Arkansas.

Those receiving multiple nominations will appear on the ballot for the “Stupid Tuesday Primary” which will take place on October 13. The group is asking the public to vote for candidates whose actions they deem “stupid.”

“We have only ourselves to blame if we don’t challenge stupid actions,” Wroten said.
