Re: “The U.S. Department of Labor Hits a State Senator’s Farm with a Conspicuously Small Fine

Jackson is just another republican creep who likes his slave labor...I am not surprised by this....This is how they govern......The good old boys look out for each other at everyone else expense.

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.

Re: “Republicans Rumored to Be Considering Packing the N.C. Supreme Court In December Special Session

I hope this is a vile and unfounded rumor. If it's true however, I'd love to see a proactive series of full page ads run in Indyweek, the Observer and other major papers before the special session with a huge headline that says, "MOLESTERS OF DEMOCRACY?" "PLEASE DON'T DIRTY Lady Liberty" followed by photos of members of the Republican legislature with captions containing their names and public email addresses. If this is true they need to be publicly embarrassed beforehand.

Re: “Christine Walczyk

Shame on Judge Christine Walczyk of the Wake County Courts!! She is the worst!! I have been present in a courtroom with Judge Walczyk as the Judge. I was not the Plaintiff or Defendant. Judge Walczyk stated to one of the litigants that it was exhausting for her to listen to her present her case (she was a pro se litigant). Judge Walczyk then laughed at the litigant present her case and laughed with opposing counsel. Walczyk frequently brought up Judge Michael Denning whom was already removed off of the case from the Chief District Judge for good cause shown. This is the Judge Michael Denning whom stated "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all of the Chinese." He should be impeached as a Judge for his discriminatory comment that he made during a court case as heard on the audio recording produced from the Court. Walczyk also expressed anger at one of the litigants for filing Requests for Reassignments against her. Judge Walczyk stated in her questionnaire that "The cost of litigation is also a growing concern. With the economic crisis looming, litigants are often choosing to represent themselves rather than hire attorneys. As judges, we have to ensure that the court system works for everyone, and that we minimize the disadvantages to individuals choosing to handle their own legal matters." I witnessed Judge Walczyk laughing at a pro se litigant, allowed the opposing counsel to violate so many different Rules of Civil Procedure and local rules. The litigant whom represented herself pro se proved to Walczyk how the opposing counsel violated many different Rules of Civil Procedure and Walczyk's reply to that was it's "water under the bridge." Obviously, Walczyk is not capable of being a fair or impartial Judge. She had the audacity to state to a pro se litigant that it was exhausting for her (Walczyk) to even listen to the litigant present her case. Walczyk referred to the litigant as a joke and laughed frequently at her. Rude and abusive treatment by a Judge to one party in a case is against the Judicial Code of Conduct. It is all on the audio recording that is produced by the Wake County Courts. That is not the way a pro se litigant should be treated by a Judge. The other litigant in the Court testified to choosing to violate the order, yet Walczyk ignored that. Judge Walczyk is truly the worst Judge. Her campaign manager is a lawyer in the Wake County Courts. I heard a witness testify in front of Walczyk to definitely not stating something about a litigant, yet Walczyk for her bias in favor of the other party, lied and stated that the witness stated something he did not. Yet, there is an audio recording from the court proving the witness testified before Walczyk stating he did not make the statement. Walczyk has stopped following the rules of the Court. Walczyk has had rude and abusive treatment for one of the litigants in the case and complete favortism for the other litigant where even when the litigant admits while testifying in front of her that he chose to violate the order, STILL Walczyk will not find him in Contempt of Court. The litigant's attorney has violated many rules of Civil Procedure yet Walczyk's response to the attorney violating the rules is it's "water under the bridge." Walczyk needs to follow the law, yet she refuse to as she does not follow the Judicial Code of Conduct. Walczyk stated judges are supposed to be "temperate", yet Walczyk is out of control on the court produced audio recording making fun of a pro se litigant trying to present her case.

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

Indy Week - do you still feel as smug now about your Hillary endorsement? I blame you and the legions like you for this. You not only condoned corruption in the Democratic Party, but you laughed it off. It had real consequences.

Re: “What’s Standing Between Rural North Carolina and Reliable Internet Service?

I know how many feel. I live between Benson and Highway 210. The only internet available, except satellite, is CenturyLink. Our speed is 3mbs download. Not only that, our phone service is in and out thus our internet service. Time Warner won't even try to get us their service. Our CL technician lives across the street from a new upscale subdivision. He has 3mbs and the neighbors have 100mbs. Go figure that one out. Getting higher speeds isn't that expensive, but there is no incentive for CL to upgrade their system or for Time Warner to lay the cable for theirs. Complaints are ignored and I can just about hear the service representatives snickering over the phone.
