Re: “Pat McCrory Has Lost It

Is that a typo in the 2nd to last paragraph where NC's Governor is named as "Ralph Wiggum"?

Re: “Charlotte Is Losing the All-Star Game

Still no explanation on how HB2 protects male children from male pedophiles, so one can only conclude it is really about oppressing trans* people. Also, no word on how stripping non-discrimination protections from LGBT people protects women and children in restrooms. It is almost as if the "protection" excuse was thought up after the fact....

Re: “Charlotte Is Losing the All-Star Game

You don't really hear much from Dan Forest, I assume he sits on his hands in that weird phallic house around the corner waiting for McCrory senpai to notice him. You forget how stupid the man actually is.

Re: “Inspiring: This Man Became a U.S. Senator Without Reading the Constitution

See how Democrat sheep just spout the line they're told, as if it's Gospel!
Were they to actually read up on the subject they would know the Senate is under no obligation to even hear the list of nominees, much less approve of them. Dems did this many times in the last months of a Repub President; no nominees were even considered.

Pretty sure that's not actually Pat McCrory in the lead picture.

Re: “Charlotte Is Losing the All-Star Game

This is infuriating. Millions in lost revenue just so our ass backwards legislature can discriminate against people. Throw the bums out.

Jamie Javier, check out a swimmer at Harvard named Schuyler Bailar. First openly trans college athlete that was openly welcomed after transitioning.

Re: “Mike Krzyzewski Weighs in on HB 2

I agree 100% that the collage team should be inclusive. I mean, come on! Women and men can use the same scissors and glue, people! Everything else you said was fucking stupid.

Re: “Mike Krzyzewski Weighs in on HB 2

Let's just see how it goes when a trans-gendered former boys high school basketball player from Virginia shows up and makes 69 points a game on the girls basketball team! Another runs track while a third joins the girls swim team. Just wait untill they get all the scholarships and peoples daughters get to try and beat Michelle, Janie and Lisa (formally known as Mike,James and Larry). That will be a real hoot. Women are just as good as men at everything so we should just have one collage team and make it unisex with no preferences given to sex so everyone is treated equal. Your daughter can easily out-run, out-swim and out-play men at basketball can't she? The trans-gendered females should have to play the girls on a level playing field. I have faith that some young man out there somewhere that can be competitive against girls. The good part is transgender former males in high-school that can't quite get a scholarship on the mans team for some reason might be able to shine as a woman once she is more comfortable about her identity. Then "she" might get a chance to play after all, but only if "she" can somehow compete on the girls team. Then she can have her collage paid for and get the social protections entitled to a woman.

Re: “Inspiring: This Man Became a U.S. Senator Without Reading the Constitution

This is what the "grassroots" tea party wanted and they're getting it in spades. How do you weaken the only entity on the planet that can prevent you polluting with impunity, paying your workers nothing (hey Drumpf things wages are already too high), and getting the lower and middle class to subsidize our tax breaks (while moving billions off-shore legally)? While that's easy, dump your excess billions into an anonymous campaign finance system that allows you to buy up enough media access to convince an ignorant 21% of voters (in midterm elections which only turn out 40% of eligible voters) that facts and reason are the enemy and your ineffectual puppet is the solution.

Thom Tillis (R-Art Pope's Sphincter) is just another example of a billionaire tool who just happened to get a promotion from weakening NC to trying to ruin the federal government to the benefit of billionaire barons like the Kochs.

Before some mouthbreathing gun-humpin' jesus freak says I'm a libtard ask yourself this: Why has your state income tax gone up since the flat tax has been enacted? Guess what Cochise?! You just helped pay for the tens of thousand dollar tax cut your wealthy neighbor (or Senator) got on his income tax bill. Not only that, you also helped the state reduce funding to education, food stamps, hurricane relief (though McCrory helped with using some of that money to fund his pointless icky people in the bathrooms law), etc that is moving NC just one step closer to fiscal positions of states like Louisiana and Kansas.

Tillis is a strange person. He's concentrated on the military, knows very little about the duties of a U.S. Senator but would prefer that only white property owners vote. I suppose this week he is cheering on Trump.

Democracy died with such a quiet whimper that most people didn't even notice its passing.

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

@ladylaw:

"I was quoting from an email sent out by DCSO to courthouse employees"

Actually, you didn't quote anything. Why don't you?

Durham seems to have survived last night without incident, amazingly enough.

"Why would I make this up??"

Who knows? One possibility: you're a flying monkey for Trump and are doing this for the exact same reason Trump lied about the "moment of silence" for the Dallas shooter.

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

@ladylaw: you're citing an email that no one mentions anywhere else in local media that I can find (explosive devices stashed in and around government buildings is generally considered newsworthy) and your account was created the day you started posting this stuff. Please forgive us if we regard your claims as bullshit pending independent verification.

Um. For one thing, you don't "plant" Molotov cocktails.

"Intel units," lol.

Trying to make people afraid with totally made-up crap is pretty despicable, even when it's as lame and transparent as this.

Proof or is it true because it's on the Internet?

Re: “This Durham 'Day of Rage' Rumor Is a Bunch of Fearmongering

Law enforcement actually found molotov cocktails planted in Durham today near a probation office and identified someone scouting security cameras around the Durham County Courthouse. Intel units also indicated they have received info that molotov cocktails will be placed at strategic locations in downtown Durham. Molotov cocktails were also planted by the Fayetteville Courthouse today. So I don't think "Ignoring It," is the best advice.
