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.
"The Cookerys Nick Johnson and his wife bought and renovated..."
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.
The Confederates fired the first shot of the war on Fort Sumpter. Jefferson Davis is responsible for 800,000 deaths

Radical Christian Terrorism. Pittman spews hate when making laws. I blame him for his son's suicide. I am sure pittman did not approve of his son's interest in atheism and same-sex marriage.
"We have reached out to Pittmans office seeking his resignation but have not yet heard back."
And don't forget that if you discover your wife is not a virgin on your wedding night God commands you to kill her immediately!!
Lets not forget Numbers Chapter 5: 11-31. Abortion in the Bible. Who would have thought?
Let's pick and choose... The "Good Book" guide explicitly forbids the following - (Tattoos-Leviticus 19:28,) (Eating Red meat-Leviticus 3:17,) (Divorce-1 Corinthians 7:10-11,) (Hair cuts, beard shaving-Leviticus 19:27,) (Working Sat. or Sun. -Exodus 31:14 15,) (Wearing blended fabrics--Leviticus 19:19,) (Reading the Inquirer etc.-Leviticus 19:16,) (Women speaking/singing in church-1 Corinthians 14:34,) (Touching the 'ol pigskin football-Leviticus 11:7,) annnnd for all you southern teens... (premarital sexx.)
The Libertarian Party has been working hard to explain this basic free market issue to voters in North Carolina.
First, $3.3 billion is too much for a 17 mile light rail line. It parallels an existing railroad. There are no major engineering challenges. Other US cities have built similar light rail lines for $1 billion, European cities have built similar light rail lines for more like $300 million.
Second, the Triangle area is very low density and not likely to generate much transit ridership besides low-income people and students. This project would be of questionable value at $1 billion. It is certainly not worthwhile at $3.3 billion. Kill it and spend the money on better bus service instead.
