This is why a lot of mentally ill end up hurting or worst killing thereselves because of the lack of mental health agencies left. There needs to be a plan before they get to the point of hospitalization. Most cannot afford medication or need supervision. Remember there still human and need love also! I'm bipolar and a mother of two and I've been diagnosed since "06 and as long as i stay on my medication i can live a normal life.
Thank you for writing this. I bet there are many more North Carolinians who would feel the same way if they knew what was happening.
Used to be awesome until Ziggy died and new management took over. Same name but culture and location changed, now it's more jazz like a suburban bar and grill with corn-hole on the patio. C-
Great music. A bit disorganized. The location was easy to get to, but too small for the amount of people that showed up for this event. Also, not enough tables and chairs to accommodate all the people that paid to sample the delicious authentic Latin food. However, for just 3 bucks, it was a pretty nice event.
So I suppose devinhedge, in his thrown together web sites to support his views, would likewise support cutting off teacher aides in schools, eliminating teacher tenure, amending the State Personnel Act as a way to eliminate grievances of workers denied rights, eliminating Judges in districts so that appeals can be thrown back to the State Personnel Commission and eliminated, diverting public tax money for private school vouchers (using the slick guise that the GA will look at school lunch subsidy students first), and eliminating testing and ranking in private "charter" schools, etc. Perhaps he (she) could read the North Carolina State Constitution that guarantees a public school education for citizens of the State of NC. Come devinhedge, are you not Tillis, Berger and McCroy in disguise?
Thank you, Duncan.
I wish it wasn't "Moral" Mondays... I guess "Ethical Mondays" doesn't have the same ring to it, but we should be getting away from religion altogether... not just seeking to replace ultra-conservative thought with moderate-conservative thought.
The idea of asking for help/guidance from an imaginary friend is so counter-intuitive... seriously, no one would be christian if they hadn't been exposed to it and convinced of it (and you don't have to convince people of the truth).
It's not that hard to brainstorm and realize what's constructive to society and what's destructive, you don't need a book for that, just common sense, logic and the scientific method.
The only thing that will achieve change is action, which even the religious have realized: praying hasn't achieved anything, so now they're praying at protests... now let's move one step further and remove the prayer and keep the protests.
I'm not saying we should be uncivil, I just want peace that's not rooted in delusion. Religion allows people to think they're 100% right in something, which is dangerous... it allows people to stop thinking, growing, and challenging themselves to improve as human beings.
Virgil's Jamaica now has a mobile food truck. Follow them on Facebook and twitter!
A bologna burger is essentially what a "hamburger" is in the Czech Republic - just grilled ham on a bun! And yes, both are DELICIOUS.
The amended SB 334 passed the House. The Senate can accept the changes or not, it doesn't much matter. If the Senate balks, Raleigh's lease would remain in effect, though Dix Park backers like Greg Poole are saying they can't raise money while the threat remains that the General Assembly might renege at some later date. If the Senate accepts the amendments, the lease would be torn up in 10 months, but for practical purposes it would be dead as soon as the bill became law.
In other words, it's back to square one with Raleigh and Art Pope negotiating. My fingers are crossed that Pope will put a park deal together -- because he doesn't want to be remembered as the guy who screwed this up.
Hopefully he's starting to think about 2016 already and realizes the only way he will win is if he's able to appear as a moderate. The rapidly urbanizing demographics of this state will not re-elect a Tea Party extremist. He HAS to be the leader and push the party closer to the center. Whether he achieves that is anyone's guess.
I respect everyone who has been arrested at the General Assembly. Let Thoreau explain:
"Unjust laws exist; shall we be content to obey them, or shall we endeavor to amend them, and obey them until we have succeeded, or shall we transgress them at once? Men generally, under such a government as this, think that they ought to wait until they have persuaded the majority to alter them. They think that, if they should resist, the remedy would be worse than the evil. But it is the fault of the government itself that the remedy is worse than the evil. It makes it worse. Why does is it not more apt to anticipate and provide for reform? Why does it not cherish its wise minority? Why does it cry and resist before it is hurt? Why does it not encourage its citizens to be on the alert to point out its faults, and do better than it would have them? Why does it always crucify Christ, and excommunicate Copernicus and Luther, and pronounce Washington and Franklin rebels?"
Well, you know, institutionally, we've probably written about Pipe 123,456,789 times, and this section has a very limited word count. Maybe next time.
thanks for ignoring pipe. What, they don't have curled up mustaches and drink pabst. Or they're just too old?
Thanks, virginiascare. We've updated the showtime.
Clarification....Doors at 8pm, show at 9.
Hi David. Some great photos of Alix and her goats at http://lissagotwals.photoshelter.com/galle… and info on what The Goat Patrol business was https://www.facebook.com/pages/Goat-Patrol… and http://www.indyweek.com/triangulator/archives/2009/07/28/carrboro-turns-to-goats-for-poison-ivy-answer.
Great story, but what's a " a goat-patrol concern"?
Per the piece you link, Burke was known to be gay to his teammates and friends, but he didn't come out to the general public until after his baseball career ended. There are many athletes whose homosexuality is well known within sporting circles but not the public at large. Uh...that's not "openly gay."
