Re: “Sankofa Farms Plants Seeds of Empowerment for Black Youth in Durham

Thank you Mr. Bell, this program is a much needed blessing. You have given these children a little more hope for the future. You are giving the children work ethic, agriculture, and the knowledge to continue the fight against hunger. This program will change the lives of a lot of people for the better. All of you worked so hard over the summer, and I can honestly say you have made a tremendous impact on my son. We thank you. Keep up the great work.

Thank you, Melinda, for being such a fine, fine example of the mental disjunction required to vote for and believe in Trump and the GOP.

Re: “Breaking: Representative G.K. Butterfield Calls for Attorney General Jeff Sessions’s Recusal from Trump-Russia Investigation “At Minimum”

GK Butterfield should be the one stepping down. He is a do nothing member of Congress who represents one of the poorest areas of Eastern NC. In all these years of being in office what has changed? Whatever happened to the NCCAR facility built as a research facility to entice GM, Ford, Toyota and others to use to the tune of 14million dollars under the guise it would bring jobs to the area? It currently has no tenants and one employee and is being rented out for motorcycle racing to ( hobbyists) not from the area. So who is this benefiting? Why isn't there an investigation into misappropriation of funds regarding this boondoggle.
Some answers are needed regarding this issue.

Plus it does cost a lot just to move and set up. So please contact me if you all out there have a home for my

Re: “No carbs? Go nuts with cashews

Anyone who would eat a whole cup of cashews isn't doing it right. Eat a small handful, and you get about 5 grams of carbs. And, please, don't count calories. Calories are completely irrelevant. Count carbs.

I have lost respect for this reporter. She approached me and my husband. Definitely not the person she portrayed. There will be more of these rallies. We need to be aware of these snakes in the grass!!

Re: “Sorry, President Trump, But Your Raleigh Supporters’ Rally Was Definitely Not the Biggest of Them All

Clearly Grayson Haver Currin used fraud to take a Trump supporter's donation.

This is illegal and should be investigated. Currin knowingly took money from a Trump supporter after deliberately causing that Trump supporter to think his donation was going to an effort that Trump supporter believed in.

That's the very definition of fraud.

Currin could have given the money back and explained what he was doing, but chose not to do so, and pocketed the money himself.

That's the very definition of theft, too.

If I went to a pro-abortion rally or some Democrat campaign event and portrayed myself as someone working on behalf of that issue or that organization and took donations from people I misled then I would be guilty of fraud and deserve prosecution.

It is very telling that when a former Indy editor and liberal does it, the Indy Week proudly publishes and applauds it. Sounds like they think it's okay to victimize people so long as the people you take advantage of are Trump supporters.

And they wonder why the country is so divided.

I'll be contacting the Wake County D.A. on this issue.

Re: “Sorry, President Trump, But Your Raleigh Supporters’ Rally Was Definitely Not the Biggest of Them All

I REALLY wish this had been advertised. I never heard a word about it. I did hear there would be rallies, even asked our local RNC chapter, They even said they had not heard of any. I surely would have been there and I'm certain there are others who would have as well.

Re: “The blues of Randall Bramblett's career-long cult status—and the promise of his new Devil Music

Small crowds like the one in Utrecht The Netherlands where I was with my 7 year young daughter may be humbling to RB but in real terms this is freaking absurd given the quality of his music, his musicians, every song he has written and every song he has played Holland he was not even picked up by Paradiso Amsterdam but played The Helling a small venue in Utrecht....I have been playing his music to every visitor who entered my house ....over 500 in some 8 couchsurfer hosting years .... great music everybody acknowledges his stuff I will promote him until my last breath A real Southerner to be proud of.... Wish I would live in Georgia just to see him on a regular basis not once in a lifetime (so far)

Re: “Durham’s New Parking Meters Are Confusing. We’re Here to Help.

When I hear the echo chamber justification for exchanging free parking for metered spaces, "something virtually every fast-growing city eventually decides to do", I am reminded of the old sayings I heard over and over again as a child. "If someone else jumps off of a cliff are you going to follow them?" "Two wrongs don't make a right." Just to name a couple.

As you might can tell I am adamantly opposed to the metered parking. They say that "the stated goal hasn't been to raise money but rather to increase turnover of in-demand on-street parking spaces downtown." What a bad joke. If that is the objective, put time limits on parking spaces and issue citations. You can use the same personnel that will be used to monitor the metered spots. And you can price the citations to make up for the money you "weren't trying to make." If you want to grub for money, don't lie about it. That makes it even more pathetic and dishonest to boot.
