Re: “North Carolina Tried to Defend HB 2 in Federal Court. It Didn’t Go Well.

good on the judge, the n.carolina leader needs to be removed and put in some mental instatute, eigther way he is a narrow minded idiot living in stoneage times. TG people when using a restroom do not make eye contact, want to be in and out as fast as possible, they need to use the restroom, they do not even want to be in there.

For a piece that is obstensibly about "her" it is in reality, mostly about him. Good job.

This isn't about weed! This is about the corruption and tactics used by law enforcement. Their God mentality...they think they're untouchable, regardless of what they do. They manipulate the laws that are supposed to protect society and flat out fabricate lies to protect their own criminal behavior. Our "Government" is the real Mafia. ~Peace

Re: “Lucky’s Makes Durham Feel More Like New Jersey Than Any Other Local Deli

A whole deli to choose from and you chose pink liver and beets? You shouldn't be allowed to write a food column.

So glad you posted a photo of the Roasted Beet sandwich! I love everything about it -including the roll! I have also had the smoked trout plate, and loved the pickle selection that came with it. I love their great beer and wine choices.

Re: “Lucky’s Makes Durham Feel More Like New Jersey Than Any Other Local Deli

I think my expectations were high but I wasn't as impressed by my corned beef reuben. It's my favorite sandwich too. Maybe the meat I got was just a bad cut but there was a lot of chewy, fatty pieces. There wasn't enough good meat in what would be considered a small sandwich up north based on the slim portion for me to be satisfied with it. I went about 2 weeks after it opened so I suspect that had something to do with it. I am willing to give it another chance. I am just waiting a bit to hear some more positive opinions on it before that day comes. Glad to hear the reuben your brother had was full of tender meat. That's what I was hoping for.

Re: “Federal Judges Strike Down North Carolina’s Voting Law, Say It Has “Discriminatory Intent”

A list includes 24 privileges attached to a photo I.D. They include:

1-purchase alcoholic drinks;
2-purchase cigarettes;
3-opening a bank account;
4-apply for food stamps;
5-apply for welfare'
6-apply for Medicaid/Social Security;
7-apply for a job or unemployment benefits;
8-rent/buy a house or apply for a mortgage;
9-Drive, buy, rent an automobile;
10-board an airplane;
11-get married;
12-purchase a firearm;
13-adopt a pet;
14-rent a hotel room;
15-apply for a hunting license;
16-apply for a fishing license;
17-purchase a cell phone;
18-visit a casino
19-purchase a doctor's prescription;
20-hold a rally or protest;
21-donate blood;
22-buy and 'M'-rated video game
23-purchase nail polish at CVS Pharmacies;
24-purchase certain cold medicines.

Bet you didn't know a majority of black voting-age American citizens did not have photo I.D.s to do at least one of these things and therefore couldn't present photo I.D.s in order to vote....and that a federal judge, Diana Gribbon Motz, appointed by Bill Clinton, could strike down a law endorsed by the N.C. legislature to ensure honest election results. And that, ergo, the reverse must be true, a Democrat US President made honest elections more difficult to certify. I'm more outraged by the personal privations of so many black Americans because they've had no IDs to buy cigarettes, apply for food stamps and obtain welfare, etc. I believe the liberal media and Democrat Party should stand up because these people are so poor and haven't had the opportunity legally to use a photo ID so they could vote.

I also would like to know an example of the "surgical precision" in a photo ID used to disenfranchise black voters since there are at least 24 ways for anyone of legal age in NC to obtain a photo ID

Re: “Durham’s GOP HQ Runs into Code Enforcement

If John Q. Citizen breaks zoning ordinances--he'd have the whole city coming down on his head. What's this kah-kah from Steve Medlin not having the authority to order the Durham Republicans to cease & desist? If Democrats did the same thing--Dallas Woodhouse would climb on the roof, scream that the whole thing was orchestrated by Hillary Clinton.

It's clear that Pat McCrory, Richard Burr, the NCGOP and Donald Trump are unfit to serve. Send them a message by sending them home in November.

You don't have to weigh the harms of legal MJ (or any other drug) against a standard of no harm. You just have to weigh them against the harms of drug war, which are manifold.

Further, you don't have to support legalization of MJ (though I do, personally) to consider the routine use of military tactics and overwhelming force to serve drug warrants a bad thing.

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

I guess Queso is so narrow minded that he does not realized all the negatives he referenced are direct results of it being illegal in USA! There are some negatives to legalization, and stats from Colorado show increases in certain accidents and children injesting but small compared to benefit IMO. An honest discussion is important to craft responsible legal weed regs to end stupid incidents like in this article.

Yeah right gran, the gangs "south of the border" don't exist because we cede the duties of production, distribution, quality control and enforcement of age restrictions to them. You disagree? How about if we get together for a friendly discussion over a glass of bathtub gin at your local Capone's Speakeasy? Shoot me an email to set it up, hey, I'll pick up the tab!

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

To each his own, I guess. I will never understand what's so great about getting high. Is life so bad that we have to alter our environment to find it enjoyable. I wouldn't brag about being able to grow contraband because that is what it is. This myth that marijuana doesn't hurt anyone...well let's take a trip down to the border and speak with victims of the gangs and cartels pushing weed and other drugs across the border. We can sometimes be selfish and narrow-minded.

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.
