Re: “You Thought We Were Nasty Before? You Better Buckle Up.

You leftist d-bags seem to forget that 8 years ago you passed over HRC for a MAN who had never held a private sector job and had not even completed his 1st term as a US Senator. His qualifications were miniscule next to hers and yet, because of his true rhetorical gifts, you fooled yourself into believing that he was the most suave, cool and qualified candidate ever. All the mysogyny is that race was, quite frankly, coming from the left in their rush to be seen as historic and symbolic.

Consider your own sins before you point out the sins of others.....

Re: “In Wayne County, N.C., Trump’s America Is Angry

I grew up in Mount Olive, NC and I am neither surprised nor disturbed by the comments made by the people interviewed in this article. This area has and will always be full of racists who believe that they are better than minorities merely because of the color of their skin. The more outspoken racists seem to be those who are uneducated, but don't let that fool you. Many of them exchange their KKK hoods for doctor's coats and librarian buns every single day. Trump didn't make my hometown this way. He only gave their hatred more purpose, affording them the ability to make their secret behavior the "new normal".

Re: “What I Got Wrong: How I Misread an American Election

I was really worried when I started reading this that the left might actually be engaging in real introspection and looking at what they had done to a large segment of the population. Fortunately I can see that you are still engaging in smug revisionism and retrenching your lines of smug elitism. You had me fooled for a minute there!!!!

Re: “It’s Time to Stop Laughing Off Poor White Men’s Malignancy—And Their Humanity

So ultimately poor white men don't get it because you are sooo awesome? This whole screed was basically a love letter to yourself and people who you think are like you. The good thing, for me at least, is that your phenomenal ability to wordsmith will lead you to fool yourself and others into thinking that you are winning other elections and culture wars......

Re: “Organize or Die: The Left Needs Its Own Tea Party

I completely agree. But, I also think progressives who are currently registered as Democrats should threaten to leave the Party if any of our demands are ignored. I've already unregistered. But, we need to put a lot of pressure on the Party to truly represent the people. If they don't, we're out.

Re: “To the Women Who Raised Us: You Abandoned Hillary Clinton When She Needed You Most

First of all everyone can find culpable the people in the Republican side for this disaster, Trump or his voters, but if we are honest, the most upset (angry) we should be for the outcome, are the 6-8 millions who voted previously for Obama, but for some stupid misconstrued conscience and other bullshit reason didn't find Hillary as pure as snow and didn't go to vote or voted for some shit protest vote. The ones, who believed all the garbage the republicans spewed (successfully! and now funny way they can find out that even Trump calls the Clintons good people). It is not their fault what is happening all around the country: neither the neo-Nazis nor the racist were ever hiding their feelings. Our glorious, "educated" millennials, virtuous uncompromising lefties, who decided to vote for their conscience or not vote at all , without any conscious thinking for the consequences, gave the steering wheel to these elements. Where was the out-cry to understand the consequences of choosing the supreme court judge, the future of EPA, climate change, human/civil rights, etc.? No. I am sick of blaming the other side but not accepting how little we have done to demand from our so called liberal media or politicians to gave us a clear picture, path, what is realistic and reasonable to achieve. How did Hillary with a close to 70% approval rate by BOTH party became a pariah, instead of the role model to all the women and young girls, as the picture shining persistence, even when a male dominant society slung mud relentlessly?

Re: “November 16 crossword

Another one unable to download PDF Version this morning, 11/16. . I would just love it if two consecutive weekly crosswords would appear and not have some problem. This one it technical, but editing problems in the puzzle itself, misspelled puzzle words that are not merely "variations" and clues that have no relevance to the "solution" are maddeningly frustrating. Last week you had two different downloadable puzzles, and a solution for only one of them. The first one suddenly changed and no reference was made to it. You don't treat us "readers" very well.

Re: “Statewide races

Wayne Goodwin lost his reelection to many different factors, but one I am sure he never thought to look at was from with in his own agency. the last four years from an Insiders prospective, the main and most damaging factor was he did not have his hands on the wheel he let his senior Deputies drive the machine and they drove it off the cliff Louis Belo and mark Edwards are good at what they did in the production of running a division but horrible at driving an agency of very good and very skilled staff of seasoned employees however what they were good at was driving them out the door when they did not agree with the establishment, resulting is good people leaving and willing puppets taking there place it all started when Belo gave Carla Obiol the loaded gun and set her lose in the consumer service group and her putting the gun to Bob Lisson head, a man of true integrity intelligence and years of knowledge and replacing him with Kathy short a relatively combatants angry woman that has no issues screaming "do you know who I am" at the first sign of not getting what she wants and the list goes on and on placing a riff employee in the controllers office as controller and passing up a woman "Laresia Everett" that in one of the most accomplished CPA's in state government only to have to bring in another person to help him because of his inability to understand the vastness of the agency's fiscal responsibility and the result of that maneuver the department lost 4 employees with a combined 60 years of experience resulting in only filling one of the vacancy's only do to not understanding the duty's and having applicants decline the offers because of insultingly low salary's and then creating positions that were never required and filling them with co workers from there last agency's lets talk purchasing and contracts policy and general statuses hogwash we don't need no stinking policy's spend, spend, spend, have a state vehicle stay at 5 star hotels BTA for 17 thousand dollars for a symposium why not make it 20 thousand just for the fun of it .. my point is within the agency there were two wars waging those of us trying to do what is correct and just, and the king and his companions living as if the Gods had granted them eternal life he lost the battle partly from within as 95 percent of us have had enough of there disrespectful degrading demeaning treatment as they received increase and promotions and we are getting rifted and reprimanded
we all have friends family and the ability to vote and that is precisely what we did.

Re: “Christine Walczyk

Judge Christine Walczyk's spouse recently wrote a post on a Court of Appeals Judge's Facebook that she is such a huge supporter and friend of hers. Problem with this is that the Judge on the Court of Appeals is whom cases could be heard if litigants have issues with Judge Christine Walczyk. How much favortism goes on in the Wake County Courts? Judge Christine Walczyk has already lied during a court case about what one of of the witnesses stated because she favors so much one litigant over the other litigant, Judge Walczyk knows things about the case that only the Defendant and Plaintiff would know before the court case begins. Judges are not supposed to have ex parte communication with any of the litigants. I have witnessed Judge Walczyk being rude, abusive and hostile to a litigant in a case where she laughed at the litigant and referred to her as a joke. Judge Walczyk of the Wake County Courts should be impeached as a Judge.

Re: “The INDY Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

Unforgivable primary endorsements

As was painfully clear to many of us when you endorsed HRC & Trump for their respective primaries, either endorsement was clueless & morally bankrupt by itself but the two together represented a perfect storm of credibility lost & maximal damage inflicted. Do you see that now?
I had to be talked down then from diverting scarce time & energy to organizing a demonstration outside your office. Friends were right that you weren't worth it. But how dared you?
It was demonstrable at the time that Sanders was the better candidate & stronger for the General Election - what was it about Clinton's 50-55% disapproval ratings that filled you with confidence?
As for endorsing Trump: whoever was responsible for that sickening, reckless choice will carry the shame always.
Can you explain yourselves?

Re: “We Broke the Machine: The 2016 Election and the Flailing American Experiment

You can thank yourselves, INDY, for endorsing Clinton.

Absolute cowards!

Democrats have been afraid to own their actual positions for 40 years on a national stage. You had a rare opportunity this year. It's a rare occasion that an articulate, well-spoken, competent, and competitive progressive candidate emerges and you swatted him down for a big fat check. Maybe you should've stopped and thought for a moment before endorsing the single most disliked democratic nominee in the history of the party for the past 100 years? When the ties between the war machine and the financial machine and the democratic candidate are too obvious, the base doesn't turn out. Young people don't turn out. And many people who voted for Trump to stop Clinton would've abstained from voting, or would've voted for Sanders, had a populist alternative that wasn't a race-baiting narcissist been available on the democratic ticket.

Good job Indy, now we're all screwed.
