Re: “An evening and interview with Big Freedia, twerk goddess

Freedia put on one hell of a show. I was front and center right up against the stage the whole show. Freedia's left cowboy boot actually kept knocking into my right hip bone every time she got to the edge of the stage. High energy music and dance. Humble and kind person. Great night!

Re: “Durham's Horse & Buggy Press combines the oldest and latest printing techniques in unique books

Big thanks to Brian Howe and The Indy for the article.
I did want to let folks know the Upfront Gallery is open EVERY Thursday and Friday from 11am–2pm if people are interested in checking out our work or the guest artist exhibits — and we will be open the next two Saturdays, Oct 11 and 18, from 9am-Noon.
Also, I will be giving an show and share talk at the downtown Durham County Library on Thursday, Dec 4 at 7:00pm and will have many books available for handling.

Re: “How judicial elections fell prey to big money

I was volunteering as a poll greeter for the Democrats at the Wake County Board of Elections during the last judges race. There was a young black man handing out flyers for the Republican candidate for judge. I asked him about the candidate and he said he didn't know but that he and his mother were being paid to hand out flyers. Republican dollars at work!!

Art Pope has been on the board of AFP, and the Pope Foundation has heavily funded the group.

Re: “Durham's Horse & Buggy Press combines the oldest and latest printing techniques in unique books

I enjoyed reading this article for the information about the printing process and our local artisian who is up to his inky finger nails in doing it his way, but i also was pleased and often amused by the writer of the article, or maybe it was really a story. I dunno.

Re: “A novel art hotel concept is coming to a historic downtown Durham building

Please put something back on the top of the building. It looks incomplete without something on top........maybe a rooftop bar surrounding a sphere?

Re: “The Republican incumbent resorts to desperate name-calling in re-election campaign

Typical useless Indy agitprop, treating GOP charges as offensive and Docratic charges as proven. Also a misspelling of Adcock's name and misidentifying Art Pope with AFP. Typical amateur hour at the Indy

Re: “One to go

The NCGOP has sought to undermine the 1st Amendment's separation (of church and state) provision (do you remember the GOP bill to create a state religion and then there's the private school voucher program that so far has been ruled unconstitutional?), and also the 1st amendment's freedom of assembly and right to petition grievances provisions (NOT my opinion, but based on a recent SCOTUS ruling, which is why almost all the Moral Monday arrests are being thrown out).

As for the 2nd amendment, IMO those who say it's "under attack" only do so as to advance gun-affiliated membership drives, or to get out their vote, or to demean the POTUS. I support gun ownership, but just wish more was done to keep guns out of the hands of kids, the irresponsible, the criminal, and the crazies. Sorry, the "slippery slope" argument doesn't wash with me.

And wrt the 4th Amendment, it seems to me that for every judgment that affords law enforcement entities with the authority they rightly need, there's a countering judgment made that protects us from illegal overreach of search & seizure.....

Nice call-out of "pre-revenue"! What a deliciously awful euphemism.

Re: “The Republican incumbent resorts to desperate name-calling in re-election campaign

This is article is completely right. Turnout is going to be key in this district and we need to reach voters to emphasize what this article says.

There are phone banks from Aim Higher Now NC, a public education organization, to get progressive voters out for pro-education candidates. If you want to do phone banks remotely into district 41, sign in at this link and click make calls for district 41. http://aimhighernownc.ngpvanhost.com/ngpvaanui/login?destination=#register. The script and details are there. There are also in person phone banks and canvasses for people who are interested at this link. http://aimhighernownc.com/events

Re: “The Republican incumbent resorts to desperate name-calling in re-election campaign

Curious that Mr (or Ms) ProudlyUnaffiliated seems to make rather radical and unsubstantiated accusations about "corruption" that are not mentioned in the article nor backed up with facts.
I gotcher ""unaffiliated" right here. Nothing sane or factual or cogent to say about this race, so Mr or Ms Proudly.... has chosen, much in line with the conservative agenda, to throw up a few random accusations that can be made in a very few syllables.
After all, relevance doesn't enter the right-wing brain at election time.

Re: “The Republican incumbent resorts to desperate name-calling in re-election campaign

The NC Democrats are focused most heavily on the Hagan-Tillis race. But they do have an effort to take a few seats from the Republicans in the General Assembly that are focused on Wake Co. So this hit piece is part of the overall Democrat strategy to pick off a few GA seats.

But, let's look at the top of the ticket. Sen. Hagan has some explaining to do as this smells very, very bad and is part of the pandemic of corruption both in DC and the NC Democrat party.

Johann must not like independent news that has not been bought and paid for by corporations.

Why is spin in quotes, Johann? Oh, and it's Democratic Party.

Re: “NBC/Marist poll shows Hagan with 4 percentage point lead

Would rather vote for the libertarian than Hagan. She ignores her constituency and is not very bright. She is a typical politician who is just out for herself.

Re: “One to go

Democrats have neutered the 4th amendment. They have the 1st amendment on the ropes and they are working on getting rid of the 2nd amendment, the one that guarantees all others. Shame on them !

Re: “The Republican incumbent resorts to desperate name-calling in re-election campaign

More 'spin' than a washing machine. The INDY is an extension of the Democrat Party, and everything said here reflects that.

Re: “The GOP punishes women

What about the War on Taxpayers? Or the War on Ethics?

Kay Hagan is a major combatant in both.
