man, that is so cold and heartless. it is very hard to find an affordable apartment much less find the money to move, deposits, time off of work, etc. there just never seems to be a break for the people that need it the most. it tells me all i need to know about daniel eller's character and shows me how the chamber of commerce defines professional of the year. mr eller is not a positive refection on them. it is always money over people. ethics are so old fashioned and it makes the honest person feel like a sucker to even think a person will act according to them.

And THIS is why we have the government we do. Money, plain and simple, buys votes. If you give enough of it, you can get WHATEEEEVER you want. That's why there should be term limits AND time gap requirements between serving in an elected seat and becoming a lobbyist.
"Even at 3.3 Billiion it's still worth it. The USA desperately needs to transition to public transportation."
A new cutaway bus cost $67,000 on average in 2007. In 2017, the number is probably closer to $100,000. (See FTA's report, "An Evaluation of the Market for
Small-to-Medium-Sized Cutaway Buses.")
Therefore, for $100 million, Durham could buy *1000* cutaway buses. Why is it worthwhile to spend more than $1 billion on light rail and commuter rail if $100 million could buy 1000 buses? Especially if those buses could be fully autonomous (computer-driven) in 10-20 years?
Doesn't it make more sense to spend $100 million for 1000 fully autonomous cutaway buses than to spend more than $1 billion (more than 10 times as much) for a light rail line that is much more limited in capability?
Even at 3.3 Billiion it's still worth it. The USA desperately needs to transition to public transportation. Public transportation and its peripheral industries will create jobs that will get reduce unemployment and generate more money and tax revenue into the economy. It will also reduce our dependence on fossil fuels. Even if it is used by low income people and students, there are many more of them than rich people.
If the allegations are true, particularly the ones about the embezzlement of withholding taxes, an independent audit by the IRS and SBI is necessary. This sounds like serious financial mismanagement.
I attended the meeting, and wanted to speak out against the light rail plans, but since I did not know how/where to sign up as a member of the public, I wasn't recognized. My only consolation is my near-certainty that the Durham Orange Light Rail Project will never be built.
There's a revolution in transportation that is coming in the next 5-20 years, which is autonomous (computer-driven) vehicle technology. Transportation will be provided as a service, rather than people owning their vehicles. Autonomous technology will provide door-to-door transport with travel times that are less than or equal to automobiles today, and at much lower cost than automobiles, and with freedom from the hassles of driving. Parking will also no longer be necessary, and congestion will be greatly reduced.
Light rail, with its higher cost and rigid fixed routes and times, simply can't compete with a fleet of autonomous vehicles. Durham's projected cost of over $1 billion would fund *2000* autonomous full-size buses (at $500,000 each). However, an even better use of the $1 billion would be to simply pay the transportation expenses of lower-income people who use the autonomous vehicle fleets operated by...Uber? Google? Hertz? Ford? (we'll know in the next 5-20 years).

NC DES employees and jobforce employees do absolutely nothing for the people on and applying for unemployment
They should all be payed off or pay cut. They all need to be retrained.
So, in other words, regulations that protect drinking water, air, healthcare, and working class citizens are bad, but regulations that protect corporate monopolies from competition are okay. #RepublicanLogic
Hopefully, light rail will die before very much is spent on it. As noted by gmbmnc, computer-driven vehicles will completely eliminate any need for light rail. Computer-driven vehicles will deliver door-to-door service (without any need for parking). And that door-to-door service will be much more rapid and inexpensive than light rail can hope for.

I suggest editing Mrs. Nick Jonson's to Rochelle Johnson.
This guy from the wholesalers group blames flat state excise tax revenues on 38 breweries ? Give me a break. There are lots of excise tax in addition to beer wholesalers. Their excuses have been stupid. But then thats how the legislature thinks. HB500 needs to pass committee.
It is just like the Cuban missile crisis IF.....
1.) Cuba was thousands of miles away
2.) Cuba was not backed by a major global nation with a functioning nuclear arsenal
3.) Cuba had repeatedly tried and failed to launch their ineffectual rockets
4.) There was actually any risk to the U.S. or American citizens
5.) The whole thing wasn't a "wag the dog" moment meant to deflect attention away from Trump's domestic flailing and failing.
Revitalization = Gentrification and a mentality that says the area needs to be made great again. I don't get how publications like Indy Week say they are against people like Trump yet support policies that displace vulnerable groups.
I dont believe that 16 -17 yr olds are mentally equipped to be incarcerated with adults. My daughter was harassed...bullied...pushed on...verbally abused by inmates ranging from 27 to 40 yrs old.and the guards..
Juvenile facilities offer and have programs and counseling that are suitable for minors.
NC law says at 16 "criminally" your an adult.
No.. If they cant vote.. Rent an apt. Buy cigarettes..they are not adults! Again most 16 17 year olds are not mentally prepared to live on their own.. Pay bills.. And some dont even know laws that well...
No minor should be in durham county jail period...
And i think they need to change the requirements needed to be employed in their facility. Esoecially when they employ guards straight out of high school..with a short training from the facility..some of these guards are seen in the community with gang members.. Smoking weed...etc...
Guards having "relationships" with inmates.. And making jealous commemts to inmates...this place is totally unprofessional!
Ladies, it's come time we band together and pledge NEVER to become intimate with a Republican male. Succumbing to their passion talk, we orchestrate our own demise, where one choice and one choice alone is our fate. There'll be no condom, no rhythm method, no vasectomy, no premature pullout, no morning-after pill, no abortion, no rape kits, no birth control, and no abstinence ( . . . nor orgasm). If necessary, only forced pregnancy, through legislation and entrapment, will be legally allowed by law. Republican males dictate what you do with your body, girls.
The one choice permitted brings with it baby elephants, many baby elephants. Republican males are called to populate the earth in millions of baby elephants. Should mothers come on desperate times, there'll be no welfare, no food stamps, no social services, nor medical benefits. Instead, we'll be forced to work, our baby elephants to be raised by televisions, and our fatherless families to survive, impoverished, on pauper's wages, minimal-sustenance child support, with higher taxes than their fathers pay.
But, for Republican/capitalist/conservative right-wingers, sex and sales are synonymous. Republican men are driven to populate the earth to increase the consumer base, maximize profit, and double their investments, no matter the human costs. A growing population of Americans means a larger army, and an expendable human protective barrier for the Republican elitists. In other words, to deny Republican men sexual gratification is to weaken economic and military effectiveness, according to the conservative male mind-set.
Instead, a wiser solution, women -- mandated Republican castration. After all, its well deserved. Its easy. Its permanent. Its justified. And, it eliminates gene-pool pollution. What better choice? Sterilize and emasculate the suckers at the same time!
So, ladies, its come time we band together and pledge NEVER to become intimate with a Republican male.

Most of the casualties weren't even American at the time.
Rep Pittman is a sad excuse for a 'man'.
I am sorry that his son was troubled, and despondent.
There were 620,000 casualties, not 800,000.
