Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

DJ17 - Your referenced professor is also an unabashed conservative who is on the BOD of a right wing think tank (and I know "right wing think tank" is an oxymoron)

Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

Ha! Of course McCrory tries to say that Monmouth is a terrible pollster despite the fact that they're one of six pollsters out of several hundred to earn an A+ rating from 538, who are arguably more knowledgeable about quality of pollsters than anybody else.

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: “Sweepstakes gambling on the way out in NC?

If you or someone you know was forced out of the poker/sweepstakes business or lost their job, because this dirty government thinks it's ok for gambeling as long as you play their lottery or travel to Harrah casino and spend your money, please contact the constitution for games @ 704-776-8873 , we are taking our rights and our business back to our jobs and we aren't asking. If you are willing to stand up with the constitution call us. We will have the rights to our jobs back!!

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?

Re: “New Poll: Pat McCrory Is Screwed

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: “Sweepstakes gambling on the way out in NC?

To those think it is addictive and a problem are the ones sounds like had the problems and not winning. No one makes you run from city to city or cafe to cafe to play the games. As a convenience store clerk I have seen customers spend just as much on lottery tickets and scratch offs and then say "oh well guess I ride over to VA and try my luck there" explain to me what is the dang difference. I liked the cafes and I was not always a winner it did not take me away from my family, I did not spend all my earnings there and I did know when to walk away. I even help my winnings on my account and would go cash in when I needed gas or something. As consumers we spend all our money chasing sales, black Fridays etc no one is "protecting" the poor from that....these shopping gimmicks hits the poor community sometimes even greater. It is mind over matter and no one can control ones mind you have to have the will to say no or go. Everyone looking for someone to blame just be responsible and accountable for YOUR OWN ACTIONS!
