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.

For the record, I never received a response from the Wake GOP or Mr. Hellwig.

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!!!

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

I honestly, think the officer should be locked up too. Although, Mr. Ledbetter was in the wrong with the drugs, he did cooperate and surrender with his hands up, as he should had, according to the two witnesses that was standing 30 feet away from him. In my opinion, I feel like this man was profiled, they thought he was someone else, which was Joesph Ledbetter, who had a history of running from the police. This officer needs to be charged. I wanna know whether or not if he read this man his rights before or after he beat him up badly. In my opinion to sounds like Slim was maybe a snitch helping the DDP out. Why didn't he run when he saw the DDP when he was transferring the drugs to Give this man his justice. There are too many dirty cops out here, the people can never feel totally protective by officers, you never know if you are being protected or setup. God Bless America!!!!!

Re: “First Day of Early Voting: "The Bluest Areas in N.C. Are on GOTV Steroids"

The lower turnout statewide might also have to do with the ridiculous rules many county Boards of Elections have instituted this year. Guilford County, for instance, the third largest city in the state and reliably blue, has all of *ONE* early voting site open right now. The rest don't open for another week.

Re: “Following a Federal Settlement, Duke Energy Is Funding Solar Schools across N.C.—Including in Durham

Clean and lowest cost energy after the initial construction cost. I would not say that everything should be solar but anytime you go to many other countries they are becoming energy independent because of solar and wind. If you are interested in solar energy, go to for more details.

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

Judge Michael Denning is a corrupt Judge. As a reply to the post made by Rights for Dads, I agree Judge Denning is totally unfit. He probably made the judgement he made in your case because he had some personal connection to the other party or the other party's attorney. That is how corrupt Judge Michael Denning works-he doesn't base decisions on facts, he just bases them on his personal connections and he does favors for friends. He is the definition of the meaning of a corrupt Judge. He abuses his authority to help out his friends in the hopes that they will help him out with something in the future. He is a true coward, as only a coward would misuse their authority knowing how expensive legal fees are and knowing that a child or children are involved in the case. He is a disgrace and should never be a Superior Court Judge. He should not be a Judge at all because of his corruption and because he made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing. From reading your post, I am very sorry for what you have gone through, but most of all I am sorry for your child and I am sorry that you and your child had to be subjected to corrupt Judge Michael Denning. He is the worst, he feels he is above the law and he does not care about children at all. He only cares about helping his political career and who he can use to help his career. Did you hear he recently got fined for Prohibited Campaign Forfeiture? The man is a joke and has the audacity to run for Superior Court Judge! I think it is really good that you wrote about what happened to you. Cowards like Judge Denning feed off of people remaining silent in the face of his corruption and trust me, he is a corrupt Judge.

The truck you show in the photo is commonly referred to as "the Hate Truck" in and around Lincolnton NC which is where it calls home. Most of the locals cringe when they see it rolling around town.

To evangelicals trying to make excuses about the behavior seen by this reporter I just have one thing to say - What these people said is simply a less polite way of saying what Franklin Graham has been advocating for years with his ministry.
