Re: “Charges Dropped in Controversial Durham Marijuana Bust; One Arresting Officer No Longer with DPD

As a Colorado resident with 24 legally growing plants I am miffed by what is happening in the southern states. Each day I read about people getting charged with felonies for a few plants. Police invading homes over small amounts of marijuana. Three productive law abiding citizens live in my home including myself. We hurt no one, still go to work, obey the law, pay our taxes. Why continue this policy of going after cannabis consumers. Not to mention all the money it costs.
I just don't get it.

Re: “North Carolina Voter ID Law Is Discriminatory, Federal Appeals Court Rules, Striking It Down

i'm sure there's other redundant protocols in place at the state level - we're quite good at that.

Re: “Coin dealer flips the game on counterfeiter

He was found innocent because he had legitimate paper work that his father had stating these coins were purchased from a mint advertised on Tv years ago. His Father thought he was making an investment in his families future. Little did he know back then they were fake. His father passed leaving the coins and silver to his children. Crazy to think this could happen to any of us. Could you imagine not knowing they were fake? How humiliating.

Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day Three: “Close Your Eyes and Take Some Soothing Breaths”

Great write up Barry Yeoman. You have articulated the overall scene beautifully. I can picture the place as I read the story. Nice work.

Re: “Pat McCrory Blames Everybody but Himself after the NBA Pulls the All-Star Game from Charlotte over HB 2

Anyone who wants to blame someone for HB2 can blame me. I fully support HB2 and am quite willing to take full responsibility for it.

Re: “Live: Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa Puff Puff Pass in Raleigh

Last paragraph is just more proof there is a double standard when it comes to justice.

Re: “Love never dies, but many terrible musicals have: Sitting through Andrew Lloyd Webber's Phantom sequel.

This show is dreadful. I watched clips of the London production which lacked the wonderful sets in the Australian production. Overall, the story and music are dire. None of the songs have the lasting impact of Phantom of the Opera. It's as if everything that worked before was annihilated.

Re: “The Progressive Case for Hillary Clinton

The trouble with Hillary Clinton is everything. She can't be everything to everybody, yet she tries. People like you, blinded by the truth, and so wanting to press your agenda, disregard the facts. How can a progressive who claims to cut down corporate greed and control, do anything, when she has taken over 100 million dollars from financial companies. The only way, I can see her winning, is by a disportionate number of people that disregard the facts and vote for a liar. It's sad but true, there are more people like you than honest people. That's why we call you sheep. God help us if she wins.

Re: “North Carolina Voter ID Law Is Discriminatory, Federal Appeals Court Rules, Striking It Down

But what about all those cases of voter fraud? Crickets!

It is heartening that the judges weighed the obvious intent of the odious ID law and struck it down. It's a great day in Carolina.
