Re: “Good News: Roy Cooper Wants to Expand Medicaid. Bad News: It Might Be Illegal.

Just to clarify, basically the only people currently eligible for Medicaid in North Carolina are pregnant women, families with minor children, and individuals who are 65 and over, blind or found (by some very stringent criteria) to be disabled. In addition, the applicant must meet the income guidelines you refer to.

So if you're a person under 65 who is not disabled and doesn't have children, pretty much the only Medicaid coverage you can get is for birth control, even if you meet the income guidelines.…

Re: “SCOTUS Grants Emergency Stay For 2017 Special Elections

Forget voter fraud as the problem; what is the point of voting at all with judges and legislators in the way of fair, equitable districts?

Yolanda Stith could not be less qualified for this position. What a blatant political giveaway.

Re: “Moogfest Announces Nona Hendryx, Moor Mother, SURVIVE, and More in First Wave of Programming

It will be interesting to see where the "protest" theme goes. Will they be collaborating with local protest groups like Durham in Defiance, Beyond Policing, or SURJ, to see what progress could be made on issues that are important to local activists? Or defining "protest" in a different way to avoid engaging with controversial issues?

Re: “Movie Review: Passengers Proves a Bad Ending Can Ruin an Otherwise Good Movie

I dont know what why all the complaints about the ending. Its not horrible and its the most obvious ending - but it would have been much better and more interesting if Sean's suggestions were followed about their children and screen shots from their life.

Re: “Floyd McKissick Jr. disciplined by N.C. Bar

I have actually had numerous business dealings with Floyd Mckissick Jr over the years. I can truly say that I have never met anyone as pathologically mean, dishonest, and petty as this guy. Something in the man is terribly broken-- to the point that, despite his utterly corrupt character, he's more pitiable than anything else. Still, god help us should he ever win significant political office.

Re: “How My Childhood Love of Elvis Taught Me to Question Authority and Cherish the Blues

FYI, the version of Hound Dog that Elvis recorded had different lyrics. They had been changed by Freddie Bell (and the Bellboys). Elvis asked Freddie for permission to record his version and that's what he did. Elvis learned of this version when he was in Las Vegas performing at the New Frontier in spring 1956. Freddie Bell was performing in the Sands lounge, which was across the street. It was Elvis' back up band that discovered this version and told Elvis about it. Elvis did know of Mama Thornton's version. The best example of singing both versions was his performance of the song on the Milton Berle show. I suggest listening to Freddie's version first, then check out the Berle version.

Re: “Five Things We Want to See from New Governor Roy Cooper

@Twilight Zone - I would just like to correct you on one thing. There was ZERO progress made under One Term Pat. He actually set the state back a lot. You should hug someone today to alleviate some of that anger you have.

Re: “Second Video Emerges From Yesterday's Rolesville High School Incident

It seems all over the United States of America that Black children when ever cops encounter them for any reason, the behaviour of the cops are always abusive. Why so much savagery against our children?

Re: “Five Things We Want to See from New Governor Roy Cooper

Power certainly did not devolve to the people under McCrory and the NCGOP. The right wing was too busy undermining the US and State Constitution. The NCGA moved to enshrine itself forever without a public hearing or input. Roy Cooper must challenge Phil Berger and Tim Moore and the rest of the GOP cabal. They are kleptocrats who are supporting a boorish, uncouth autocrat who believes he can set policy with Tweets.

Re: “Five Things We Want to See from New Governor Roy Cooper

Are you familiar with the term "subset"? I know it's bourgeois fashion to forget this, but there are, in fact, others.
