Re: “Five Terrible Things the Legislature Did During the Short Session

Good overview article. Top 5 can't begin to cover the damage of the NCGA . Also in the last weeks of work for the legislature was bill to allow concealed carry withOUT a permit, blocking funding for schools and roads for 1-2 years for Sanctuary Cities at the sole discretion of the State Atty Gen (I can only assume they believe that will become a R after Nov).

And that it was not the people's voices heard with regards to HB2 but the NBA's speaks loud and clear- now we must rely on sports, music and entertainment to protect our rights and if that isn't a failure of the State, I don't know what is.

Re: “To save his marriage, a domestic abuser gives PEACE a chance

After 3 years in marriage with my Husband with a kid, my husband started going out with other ladies and showed me cold love, on several occasions he threatens to divorce me if I dare question him about his affair with other women, I was totally devastated and confused until a friend told me about a spell caster who help people with their relationship and marriage problem by the powers of love spells, at first I doubted if such thing ever exists but decided to give it a try, when I contact him and told him my problem, he helped me cast a love spell and after 24hours my husband came back to me and started apologizing and ever since the spell cast, he has stopped going out with ladies and he is with me for good and for real. Contact this great spell caster for your relationship or marriage problem at

Re: “The Quiet Battle for the N.C. Supreme Court Matters More Than You Think

To Mr. Mortimer: Yes, a retention election is probably less a function of partisan politics than regular election contests, but before they can be held in North Carolina, it seems to me that North Carolina's Constitution should be amended. The poor thing is battered enough by rogue judicial injuries against it, as it is.

I have seen injury piled on injury against NC's Constitution. Some of these appellate judges ought to conspire among themselves to uphold it for a change.

Re: “Coalition to Unchain Dogs

What can be done about someone leaving their dog out in the heat day and night. It is in fenced yard, but seldom gets any attention. Gets food and water, but very little contact with owner. It seems terrified. I personally think it is to hot for a dog to be outside. The person also ties her little Maltese outside all day long in this heat.

Any suggestion would be appreciated. I have spoken with her, but to no avail.

Thank you, Donna Hoggard.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Don’t Worry, Guys, Donald Trump Has a Big Ol’ Penis

I would like to let all know that the size of your Penis really matters in your relationship or marriage. I got married to my wife about 1 month after we met on a photo studio, we lived happily for the first 3 months of our marriage until i and my wife started having quarrels at home because i couldn't satisfy her on bed with my little penis. Actually my penis was very small, it measured about 4.5 inch long on erection and i am 39 years old. My wife said it was forbidden by the women of this world. My wife started sleeping with other men outside. Sometimes i will return from work without finding my wife at home and whenever i call or ask her where she was, she will always snub at me and sometimes just tell me to go get a larger dick. All this continued for a long time and it hurt me so much that i was at the edge of breaking up on the marriage till when i read about a doctor called DR. OYAMA online. I never thought i could smile and be in a happy marriage again if not for the help of DR.OYAMA. I got the doctors Emails: on the internet and i emailed him, and he got back to me with some encouraging words, he got me some herbs which i use for just 8 days and i began to feel the enlargement of my penis, and without surgery. This went on for a little period of about 10 days and to my surprise my wife keeps screaming that she love my big dick now. Now my wife no longer cheat on me, and my penis is now about10.5 inches long on erection and off course very large round. And now my wife uses breasts, hips and bums enlargement. I and my wife are very happy for the help rendered to me by DR. OYAMA, and i want to say a big thanks to Doctor for the help. You can contact the Doctor now on his Email: Am thankful to the doctor for helping me. you can whatsapp +2348108264684..or call him +2348119020294..//

Re: “William Barber: "This Is Violence and Death Gone Wild"

Thanks to Rev Barber,
Well said!

Non -Violent protest is the appropriate answer, the only answer to discrimination.

Dude; In Ferguson the Police department targeted minorities for traffic fines, often contrived, to fund the department and the city. Years of such blatant racist harassment and racial profiling led to a pent up anger now released. The same equation holds true throughout the country.
Ironically Dallas had been addressing the issue, with training and community- sensitivity in mind, and complaints in Dallas of police misconduct had dropped, from 147 complaints in 2009, to only 13 so far this year. The Dallas program needs to be adopted throughout the country.

Re: “U.S. Congress, Second District: We Endorse John McNeil in the Democratic Primary

Unfortunately, This candidate is a sellout. Starting out as a staunch Bernie supporter, he has since flipped his position and is now supporting Hillary, even calling her crimes 'OK". On his facebook, he deletes negative posts and blocks anyone who disagrees with him. And, he thinks he can just go "do politics" without the aid and consultation of experts in the field.

This is NOT who we supported when he was seeking momentum. He is an absolute fraud, and I fear what his performance will be like. To quote one of his many egotistical posts "This is the McNeil house - it's gonna be MY way". He sounds like Trump. We, the majority of his supporters, are disgusted by him.

Re: “William Barber: "This Is Violence and Death Gone Wild"

It's time the government designate the Black Lives Matter movement a terrorist organization. They've rioted and destroyed Ferguson, and now they've shot dead five cops. Barber is complicit with his rhetoric.

Re: “There’s Going to Be an Anti-HB 2 Party Inside the Governor’s House

Denise, you sound mentally ill. How does it make you less safe? Because it makes sure only women can use the women's restroom? In other words, what we've always been doing?

You also don't seem to understand the law. The Charlotte ordiance which inspired HB2 was set up to FORCE churches and religious schools to allow transexuals into the bathrooms, showers, and locker rooms belonging to members of the opposite sex. What HB2 did was preserve the rights and religious freedom of these institutions to say no, and mandated that the government allow for single sex bathrooms based on birth certificates, meaning the mentally ill women who think they are men and the mentally ill men who think they are women CAN go into the bathrooms of members of the opposite sex in government buildings so long they get their birth certificate changed. Private business and places like churches and religious schools can decide their own policy and every non-government institution is free to determine whether or not it wants to let men into women's bathrooms and vice versa.

In other words, HB2 increases freedom and protect people's rights. But that's not the message people are getting because libtards like the Indy keep misrepresenting the truth and low IQ types like you don't seem to be able to understand reality.

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

Judge Michael Denning stayed on a case where he personally knew the Plaintiff and the Plaintiff's family and friends!!

He based his decisions on what his friends wanted! Judge Denning does not follow the Judicial Code of Conduct, he feels that the rules don't apply to him. As Americans, we have throughout our history we stood up against corruption, we have made positive changes to our country because we have not remained silent in the face of corruption. As a proud American, I stand up against the comment made by Judge Michael Denning during a court hearing, which he stated "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." To the cowardly response posted by panthriot above which tries to defend Judge Michael Denning's discrimination, my response is you're just as ignorant as him. There is no excuse for discrimination.

Judge Robert Rader, Chief District Court Judge has done nothing to address Judge Michael Denning making this comment in the court. He has ignored the issue and even tried to pretend he didn't know he made the comment. What kind of a Chief District Court Judge tolerates behavior like this??? The discriminatory comment was presented to Judge Rader and he removed Judge Michael Denning off of the case but never addressed his discriminatory comment. No wonder Judge Michael Denning feels he can do whatever he wants.

The Superior Court election is in November. Judge Denning should have already been removed by the appropriate officials as a District Court Judge, yet he has the arrogance to run for Superior Court Judge. Could you imagine how terrible it would be if he becomes a Superior Court Judge? If you're not his personal friend, then the case will be lost. Judge Denning should learn that all discrimination is wrong!! There is no excuse for his discriminatory remark and no excuse for him intentionally staying on a case where there was a clear conflict of interest. Judge Robert Rader should also stop letting his personal friendships with the Judges affect his decisions. He is there to serve the public and not cover up completely inappropriate behavior of the Judges. Judge Robert Rader gets a huge salary and instead of acting in the best interest of the litigants in the court, he instead lets his personal friendships with the Judges affect his decisions. Judge Robert Rader, try standing up for what is Right for once. Judge Robert Rader, think about stepping down as the District Court Judge because you have a Judge, Judge Michael Denning whom made a discriminatory comment during a court hearing. You are completely aware of the comment yet do nothing about it. Shame on you Judge Michael Denning and Judge Robert Rader. The court system focuses on serving the public and not both of you making huge salaries and abusing the litigants of the court.

Re: “The Morning Roundup: Things Are Bad

Would you have been happy if the officer killed the white guy? Maybe, just maybe, not all cops are bad. I'm just as pissed about what has happened to innocent blacks s well, but your snark does nothing for me.

Re: “The Peanut Man Goes Home

I was once a Marine!! In 1970 I was stationed at Cherry Point, NC just outside of Havelock. As a PFC just out of avionics school, I and my friends had little money, no car, and not much to do on weekends except to play spades in the barracks. One night we went to the enlisted club and there are two things that cause them to be memorable. First, we started with beer, graduated to whiskey and took our post grad in tequila. When we realized we could no longer handle post grad work we went back to whiskey and finally back to the old standby, beer.

Well, it just so happened that Doug Clark and the Hot Nuts were performing at the E-club. I had no idea who he was. I have sang some of his ditties and found that not many people know who he was. I sing Nuts, hot nuts, get 'em from the peanut man and no one knows it! The other one I liked was the thing about working in Chicago in a department store. A lady came in, wanted a cake one day, I asked what kind she preferred. She said layer so I did, I don't work there any more. There were several verses to the Chicago Dept. store song.

So, to Doug Clark and the Hots nuts for entertaining me with an unforgettable act and the United States Marine Corps! for paying for it, a big THANK YOU!

Semper Fi to all my Marine buddies!

Re: “There’s Going to Be an Anti-HB 2 Party Inside the Governor’s House

This law makes straight me LESS safe. We got along fine when only people who looked like women used the Women's restroom. Now, according to the law, people who look like men (and they are NOT mentally ill - read up on the scientific reasons that a person may have more than one sex in their bodies even though it is not the usual) should also use the restroom. So now anyone can come in. How does that make me safer????

Re: “Guitar Center Is Leaving Durham. Here’s What That Means for Indie Music Stores

Guitars Center made it possible to go into a store and play whatever instrument you want without some cigar chewing asshole saying "if you aren't going to buy that,then don't touch it". It created a positive atmosphere for young and old musicians

Right, go to your safe place and get a tissue.

When you come back, what do we do about moving transit forward?
