Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

I suppose then that Lincoln was pushing the Black agenda--Kennedy too. God knows they shouldn't have been allowed thier freedoms--and finally desegregated a century later. Martin Luther King just threw that black agenda in our faces! And I'm certain you could find some idiot "scientist" out there who published a "study" saying that African Americans are somehow genetically inferior to thier Caucasian counterparts. The study is only as good as its science, it's scientists and the statisticians. By the looks of things DJ17, you are none of the above. It was the topic of the times. It needed attention. The LGBT people are the ones in the spotlight now. Their agenda needs attention. These people have been living in the background for far too long, all of whom have suffered at the hands of bigoted lawmakers like McCrory. No matter that the higher courts have deemed his voter registration laws and HB2 unconstitutional, right? And who cares that he's spent over $500K of the state's disaster relief fund to defend himself despite those rulings. I'll be happy to see McCrory go and I suspect there will be parties when he does.

Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

Hey DJ17, I'm going to quote one of your favorite Conservatives... "I'm not going by any study or poll, I'm going by the way people feel" - Newt Gingrich.

In case you missed it he said this while being questioned about crime. He says people feel scared, while denouncing an FBI report that crime is down. Fearmongering is your boys cup of tea. Facts hold no weight with your party.

Quit pretending like you know anything except the BS you hear on Fox News. Rinse and repeat.

Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

How is serving as Governor of a top 10 state for one term "utter humiliation" versus, for example, working for a free tabloid?

DJ17 - There's no scientific evidence of God, but people believe it. Your argument is not valid for a majority of the population. Only God knows if the LGBT folks are born that way, so you should not speak of what you don't know.

Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

Even if that were somehow true, what would it matter? What business is it of anyone else when two consenting adults love each other, or if they want to marry? When transgender kids are dying inside and killing themselves because society denounces them, who with a heart cares about some people's petty objections to their personhood or very existence? The answer is that these peoples lives, liberty, and pursuit of happiness is much more important and trumps your petty "close examination."

Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

It turns out that McCrory was right. In case you haven't heard, we now have a close examination of scientific research by two scientists from Johns Hopkins university (one is also affiliated with Arizona State). It shows that the LGBT agenda that has been pushed onto us by Obama, the NBA, and others is based on a LIE. There is no scientific proof that gays and transgenders are born that way and no scientific proof that transgenders are trapped in the wrong body.

Re: “Breaking: Crisis Pregnancy Center Files Federal Lawsuit Against Raleigh For Denying Zoning Request

The whole lid needs to be ripped off of each and every CPC. This proves they do not have the best interest of the women at heart, and should never be allowed to harass and intimidate women exercing their legal rights.
Shame on them. Shame on them for misrepresenting themselves, and shame on them for treating women as less than equal, less than human, and less deserving than a cadaver of rights to their own bodies.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Early Voting, Chatham Zoning, Wake Schools, Tim Kaine

“The more [early voting] sites we have, the more opportunities exist for violations.”

By that logic, the only way to eliminate fraud is to eliminate voting.

Re: “Citing N.C., Environmentalists Call For EPA to Set Hexavalent Chromium Levels

The evidence that McCrory is unfit to be our governor is astounding, especially as it continues to pile on.

Re: “Durham Ponders Possible Pot Enforcement Priorities with Push From FADE

The marijuana wars are nothing but tools used by big government agencies(DEA) and local police to intimidate and coerce people into becoming snitches or face harsh penalties for pot charges or confiscating property for profit...For them (cops,DEA etc)to have that power took away would force them to do real police work instead of just being another gang of thugs kicking down doors on the word of a scared snitch looking to stay out of jail and in many instances you have cops shooting innocent people and kids and family pets and destroying property of innocents...plus stealing peoples money and property and cars or framing them with false charges all on their (cops)word alone..It is to much power for a few to have over all of us with no recourse... they(the cops) say hey that's dope money they take it and that's it they spend it on latte machines cars etc who knows what they do with all the money they steal it cost innocent folks a lot of money to try and recover it and it is not easy the police dont want to give it back..Just more avenues of corruption and chaos...These agencies dont want it legal because they make to much money from it...so do counties close to the main freeway...It is a money garden for cops nothing more..in some states it is so bad that cops actually get protective of their turf against other police agencies....it is all about money and us with no rights and living in a police state all over this mythical war on drugs..which by the way they lost years ago...Now its all about money and power over the masses...The goody two shoes folks think this fine..yeah until it happens to them or someone they know..Not all cops are like this but most of them in the big cities are...crooked to the bone....Here in NC they wont even let us see the body cam footage because they want to hide their evil and it is supported by the republican regime in Raleigh...The republicans love having a police state....Hopefully in 2016 we can send some of them home including the stupid shit fer brains governor McCory.

Re: “Updated: Reports of Shot Fired at Crabtree Mall

I have several issues with what is in this article. Not with what you're reporting but with the information that was given to your contact on the scene. I was there when this incident happened. We were in Children's Place which is upstairs down by Macy's. After hearing a sound that sounded like something fell, I hear yelling, screaming and what sounds like thunder (from a mass amount of people running). People started running by into Macy's so we took off and did the same. I heard some lady say there was a bomb. And others said they were just running because everyone else said to get out now including mall security. Plus in today's world, I'm not going to stick around to find out what really happened.

I did not hear a spray of bullets as one person had said, I'm certain I would've heard that. Plus there would have been bullet holes in the area and shell casings from a gun that would "spray bullets".

One report says down by Lush. And someone had an Instagram video with what sounded like a shot that was fairly close. They were right by Lush in the video. Lush is not near the food court.

Eye witness accounts are saying it happened in the food court. So were there two shooters? The shop owner who saw two people arguing and one pulled a gun..there is no video footage of this anywhere?

Why would officers share false information that they had someone in custody?

We made our way to our car in the parking garage and were able to exit mall property turning left on Edwards Mill. We were waiting with other vehicles and we were on the second floor. Why were people allowed to leave the property at all? The cops were already on site when we were pulling out onto Edwards Mill.

In the chaos that I witnessed, a shooter or shooters would have had no problem getting out when everyone else did. Because we got out before the lock down. We were in the car and waiting before we even heard sirens.

Something happened and someone knows the truth..whatever it is. I'm not a conspiracy theorist because I live in the real world. I mean what would the reason have been to fake a shooting st the mall yesterday. Also I'm not a "crisis actor" as some have accused of others that were on the scene. There were hundreds of people running towards Macy's. There were hundreds of people everywhere. We had been in the food court area at Think Geek before we went down to Children's Place. The place was as packed as you would expect on a Saturday.

We will probably never know what really happened. If it was in fact a noise that was created by something falling..we'll never know. I do know that being in that situation, running with my husband and 6 year old daughter to get outside isn't something I want to go through again. It's hard to really feel one way or the other because you just don't know what really happened. Had it been a mass shooting, I would be in a very different place mentally this morning.
