Re: “Doomed Republican Congressional Candidates in Triangle Have Pretty Cool Signs

Xtristos, automatically endorsing a candidate because she's a "female immigrant" isn't what a fine progressive journalist would do.

Re: “Doomed Republican Congressional Candidates in Triangle Have Pretty Cool Signs

Wow - Liberal journalism at it's finest! Such objectivity, non-partisan, peer-reviewed factual statements. The one I find the most titillating is how Sue Googl gave herself a surname that is ironically similar to a F500 company. Just her sheer ability to make such a bold prediction makes her hands down the best candidate for the job! Forget the hardships she had to endure growing up in an oppressed society devoid of the very freedoms the fine people of the Liberal persuasion hold in such disdain. It amazes me how such a fine "progressive" journalist such as yourself would support a "good ole southern white boy" over a female immigrant - kind of goes against everything preached by the rainbow warriors.

Re: “Light Rail, Bull City Connector to Take Center Stage at Durham Council Work Session Thursday

@D M their rational is "Fuck the poor, this multibillion-dollar train is for wealthy UNC/Duke students and professors only"

It's all one giant scam so that Durham taxpayers can pay for a privileged class of individuals to have an alternative method of transportation that also shows how "Progressive" our city has become.

Isn't it interesting how Duke and UNC-CH aren't subsidizing a majority of this project despite the DO-LRT being built specifically for them?

Re: “Light Rail, Bull City Connector to Take Center Stage at Durham Council Work Session Thursday

They cut the MOST USED STOP? In favor of adding lightly-used Duke stops?

What was the rationale given for cutting out Durham Station?

Re: “Doomed Republican Congressional Candidates in Triangle Have Pretty Cool Signs

Seriously, this article represents exactly what is wrong when candidates who use #Voter #Oppresion not #Liberty to choose who represents #NC01 & #NC04. For the readers, please connect on the link given to Sue Googe's issues; common sense planning for District 4. I believe Pastor Powell Dew can certainly hold his own in a discussion with any voters in Durham County area. The writer alludes to fact these candidates are pawns. Caring & Knowledgeable Candidates for supporting their constituents? Agree 100%. And #SueGooge #PowellDew are doing an excellent job meeting their constituents. #Vote #November8 #Education #PersonalLiberty #Jobs #Growth #FightCorruption ( David Price, you're District map is outdated on your website!)

Re: “Doomed Republican Congressional Candidates in Triangle Have Pretty Cool Signs

Logos? Really? What can improve with "representatives" like David Price, who have been in Congress for 30 years already? At this point the more proper term for David Price is ruler. Sue Googe is trying to actually represent her constituents.

Re: “Uber Really, Really Doesn’t Pay Very Well, According to a Lawsuit Filed in North Carolina

When Uber starts in markets, they pay well to get drivers to sign up. In my market I made plenty. Then they cut the rate and increased their percentage take. The money dried up. I got another job. But the drivers who continue to do this I'm concerned do not earn enough to take care of their cars. They let things go to long like brakes and mechanical needs. They operate them for 60 hours or more per week to make rent or mortgage or whatever they need to pay for in life. Then the cars go unchecked by city inspectors. It's just not safe. I won't use the service any longer. I know how stressed out these drivers and their cars are.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Donald Trump Jr. Tastes the Rainbow and a Poll That Makes You Go Hmmm

The "three out of a bowlful" estimate is wildly overstating the problem. How many Skittles are in a bowl - perhaps 300? So, that's a 1-in-100 rate, which (according to John Oliver on Last Week Tonight) is too high an estimate. In fact, of the 784,000 refugees in the 14 years following Sep 11, 2001, 3 were arrested for planning terrorist activities, none of them occurring in the US.

I don't like invaders either. Plus, CNN added the "racial" to profiling. If you would listen to what was actually said vs. believing Communist News Network, you just might get something straight for a change.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Donald Trump’s Campaign Swears Donald Trump Is No Longer a Racist Birther, and We Totally Believe Them

Karen - the "birther movement" was started by Hillary supporters. There is no record that Clinton or anyone in her campaign ever advanced the allegation that Obama was not born in the US. No journalist has found a connection between the birther movement and Hillary or her campaign.

The certificate is real, the vetting was done.

FactCheck has more information, as well as do many *reputable* news outlets.

When faced with two bad choices, it is best to be well-informed and able to tell fact from fiction before blindly dismissing an entire party over... misinformation.
