Re: “Does North Carolina give homeowners associations too much power?

I've never lived in a house built more recently than 1976, so I have no personal experience with HOAs. I do know, however, that several of my neighbors told me they chose to buy a home in our neighborhood specifically because it does not have an HOA, so I guess they have had bad experiences of them.

Re: “Bob Dylan Won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Does He Deserve It?

"No" would have been more accurate and succinct.

Re: “Long Shots: Why Gary Johnson Isn’t Worthy of Millennials’ Protest Votes

Millennials:

1) Are tired of an interventionist foreign policy
2) Believe the Drug War is idiotic and unwinnable, and that locking up mass numbers of people of color for non-violent crimes is a TERRIBLE idea that has been long championed by your Democratic nominee.
3) Remember that the Democratic party was explicitly homophobic just 20 year ago. Look at DOMA voting records in Congress. Look at the president who signed it into law.

Some Remember this track record of establishment Democrats. That is why so many young people have fled to Mr. Johnson. In various polls of millennials he has been tied with Hillary, which is why the H-> machine has spent so much effort discrediting him with the goal of getting millennials back in line. The thing about millennials, they don't like to be told what to do. This is a real problem for the Democrats.

Re: “Does North Carolina give homeowners associations too much power?

Why any home buyer would voluntarily want another layer of bureaucratic control upon them, by buying into an HOA....just say NO to HOA's....

Re: “Wake County Judge Michael Denning: 'China Wouldn't Be So Bad If It Weren't for All the Chinese'

Chris Malone tweeted his support of Judge Michael Denning. This is the same Chris Malone who voted for HB2 and defended the horrible bill. Judge Michael Denning is a huge supporter of HB2 and Judge Denning is a big supporter of McCrory. Vote for Becky Holt for Superior Court Judge District 10C. Judge Michael Denning should not be a Judge. He is corrupt. His campaign was also fined for Prohibited Campaign forfeiture.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Richard Burr Has Gone Full Trump

During the American Civil War and through Reconstruction, people like many in today's Republican were called the Radical Republicans. Today's Republicans are not conservative (What exactly are they trying to conserve?), however, you can call the Radical Republicans.

Re: “Mind the Food Gap: Who Does Farm-to-Table Serve?

The author of this article appears to have concerns about food security for those who are the most at risk for unhealthy food. I share his concern. While I applaud those who raise organic fruits, nuts, and vegetables as well as pastured animals for human consumption, the cost for those products are prohibitive when it comes to those who are at, below, or just above the poverty level. This is hope. I suggest those of your readers and those who write for or are involved in Indie/Week go to the YES! magazine website. They have had many success stories about food security over the years. One example is: http://www.yesmagazine.org/commonomics/boston-s-emerging-food-economy

You can also do a search for city farming, urban food crops, or city food coops to name a few. Like I stated, they have been involved in solving food insecurity for many years. Why try to reinvent the wheel?

Another site that might be of interest in On the Commons: http://www.onthecommons.org/

There is no reason that the people central NC can't have their own style of making sure all people have food security, and it is well within the limited financial capacity of many among us.

Yes, can you please explain the endorsement of Marty Miller. His Facebook page consists of reposts of everything that is wrong with America right now. He is reposting Donald Trump, Ben Carson, and all of the other GOP lies. Please explain this endorsement.

Re: “The Party Barn: Are Rustic Weddings Destroying a Way of Life in Rural Orange County?

I ride my horse in that neighborhood and I have seen the 3 beehives and the 10 feet of flowers. Three beehives will not produce honey to sell next year and those zinnas are a dime a dozen at any farmers' market. They advertise a 'southern charm " wedding on their fb site but they are Yankees who have read one too many Garden and Gun magazines.
And as of Oct 28, there were workman still on site, reconstructing the vaunted old barn from New York or some such place.

Re: “Mind the Food Gap: Who Does Farm-to-Table Serve?

Not only are farm to table resturants expensive but the people who eat there have a elitist attitude. I remember being told by one person that I didn't know anything about local food in a state that my family has been in for 200 years because I don't eat at places like Stanbury. Then they had the nerve to say that they seek those places out calling me ignorant for not doing the same. So I think it's a load of crap. And the funny thing is the ppl who seriously think they know everything about food because they ate at death and taxes or mandolin are the same exact ppl who haven't done things like gone to the archives and read the cookbooks from the ppl who ran Mordecai or the wives of the governors. They don't know about sweet potato pudding lol


As far as farmer markets go the state farmers market isn't that expensive on the outdoor side at least and is about the same price range as kroger. But ppl on snap won't go bc
of the convenience Walmart has. Now given that the state Market really isn't far from a food lion or Walmart I do think ppl on snap can go to Walmart and still get things like basil or fruits and vegetables at the market while still getting the other things Walmart has. The real question is how do they cater to ppl on snap who take the bus.

Re: “The INDY Endorses Mike Morgan for N.C. Supreme Court

Judge Edmunds is an experienced but humble NC Supreme Court Justice who has been re-elected multiple times because he represents the majority of NC citizens. If you have conservative values and want the Constitution of NC to be followed, not revised by PC judicial activists, then Vote FOR Edmunds!
