Re: “Republicans Rumored to Be Considering Packing the N.C. Supreme Court In December Special Session

I hope this is a vile and unfounded rumor. If it's true however, I'd love to see a proactive series of full page ads run in Indyweek, the Observer and other major papers before the special session with a huge headline that says, "MOLESTERS OF DEMOCRACY?" "PLEASE DON'T DIRTY Lady Liberty" followed by photos of members of the Republican legislature with captions containing their names and public email addresses. If this is true they need to be publicly embarrassed beforehand.

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Well everyone, consider this. Judge Denning lived in China and has a personal perspective, how many of you can claim the same pedigree? I'll guess few to none.

Re: “Undercover at North Carolina's Final Gathering of Trump's Army

Kenneth, you express so well the frustration most of us feel. For you to have had the courage, the self control to attend the rally speaks volumes of your fine character. It has been a ghastly time, a growing malignancy in our country. I believe that truth, honor, and substance will prevail. And then the reunification of our brothers and sisters will begin.

Re: “KKK Drops Flyers In Raleigh Neighborhood As Part of Seemingly Coordinated National Campaign

This is bizarre! Of all the years I've lived in Durham and Raleigh, I've never heard of anything so ridiculous! I work at Real Estate By Design in Durham and someone once left a flyer for a cat washing service (LOL), which I thought was crazy enough, but this takes the cake!

Re: “The INDY’s Elections Contest: Guess the Results, Win a Prize

welp, that's exactly the same map I planned to pick (save for making NE all red and ME all blue), so no fun in that!

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Chris Malone tweeted his support of Judge Michael Denning. This is the same Chris Malone who voted for HB2 and defended the horrible bill. Judge Michael Denning is a huge supporter of HB2 and Judge Denning is a big supporter of McCrory. Vote for Becky Holt for Superior Court Judge District 10C. Judge Michael Denning should not be a Judge. He is corrupt. His campaign was also fined for Prohibited Campaign forfeiture.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Richard Burr Has Gone Full Trump

During the American Civil War and through Reconstruction, people like many in today's Republican were called the Radical Republicans. Today's Republicans are not conservative (What exactly are they trying to conserve?), however, you can call the Radical Republicans.

Screw Wegman's. I'd happily settle for a Teeter anywhere east of Duke St.

Re: “Wake Republican Who Voted for HB 2 Now Wants You to Know He's a Champion for LGBT Rights

This is getting ridiculous. Can we just take all of the signs off of all restrooms and get it over with already? Let anyone go to which ever restroom they want to go to.

Re: “Richard Burr's Not So Keen on the Right to a Fair Trial

Other than his uninspired monthly newsletter, which requires a subscription, the only time we hear from Sen. Burr is during election cycles. He is well known for keeping his head down and dependably following the instructions handed to him by Republican leadership. NC voters have the opportunity to replace an empty suit with a thinking individual who has a demonstrated work ethic. I hope we don't let it pass us by.

Re: “Poll: McCrory Sees Approval Rating Boost After Hurricane, Democrats Up Big in Early Voting

McCrory LIED about his agenda when he first ran for governor. After he was elected people realized he wasn't the moderate that he claimed to be. Instead he has instituted policies that harm people and the economy of the state. Time to kick him out of office.

I suppose "like sharpens like." Pat McCrory has been a disaster for NC. His policies and corrupt government has caused damage that will take a long time to recover from.

Re: “Durham police excessive force case goes to Court of Appeals

I'm in taking finishing up on my Bachelors Degree in Criminal Justice, I would love to know more details on this article, as well as hear some feedback from the officer. Was officer Schneiders a newbie to the force? Why was he in the back seat? It seems to me he acted out of protocol. He felt like he had a point to prove and wanted to feel like he was doing something. It to also, seem like it was three cops in the car, therefore my next question is why the backseat trainee during all the action??? I'm itching to know more, thanks in advance!!!
