Re: “Anna Elena Worley

I will not vote for Worely based on the info I have found on this site an others AND from her own words that she "represent asylees fleeing oppression and seeking refuge on our shores"
I'm NOT against LEGAL IMMIGRATION, I'm NOT against assisting GENUINE "refugees" in THEIR OWN shores. But I AM AGAINST opening our arms and our country to unvetted refugees from HOSTILE countries especially to those who have NO interest in becoming Americans and embracing our way of life.
I look to what's happening to those areas of the country who are already having a problem with rising rape and murder statistics and to Europe where the landscape has drastically changed, where there is fear on the streets and the police do next to nothing to help and most can't because any action is considered "racial profiling" Those who commit these types of crimes are given a pass because that's their "culture". Frankly speaking let them keep their culture in countries who accept that way of life and let us keep our way of life safe and protected.
I have no intention to support or vote for anyone who feels she has time to devote to "asylees". I have a feeling she should have enough to do representing our own people who are struggling with oppression here in our own shores.

Re: “Long Shots: Republican T. Greg Doucette Holds Views Indistinguishable from Those of a Black Lives Matter Protester

As the Co-Chair of the Durham/Orange County Libertarian Party - the (all men) comment is factually incorrect as I am certain that the Director of Volunteers - Amy Lamont was in attendance at our meeting that T. Greg Doucette spoke at as well as Pam Adams - Sean Haugh's wife, but, don't let that change whatever narrative you are attempting to set up about the Libertarian Party.

T. Greg Doucette would be a breath of fresh air for the State of North Carolina - he's seen the racket that our court system has turned into with the War on Drugs and how racially charged the enforcement of prohibition has been to our citizens of color.

Thank you for this article - no retraction is necessary.

Re: “Long Shots: Why Gary Johnson Isn’t Worthy of Millennials’ Protest Votes

@theFeline. Your statement on Gov. Johnson is patently false, and indicative of the kind of lies Democratic hack media have spread with the goal of scaring millennials back in line. Its disgraceful. Gov. Johnson believes "climate change IS mostly likely happening" and "it IS most likely human driven", both positions that emphatically break from conservative orthodoxy. All it takes is a Google search and enough attention span to read beyond the bullshit CNN, Mother Jones clickbait headlines. It is this kind of lie spreading that are encumbering Democratic reputation these days, particularly among independents and young people.

@ Jim McClarin, I agree: small factions with outside-the-norm-views often get their positions shoehorned into the monopoly party platform through the backdoor. Gov Johnson was the highest ranking politician to come out in favor of drug legalization, 10-15 years before anyone else, at the same time the Clinton's were lobbying for locking more people (of color, effectively) up via their 1994 Crime Bill. Those of us who see the damage of the Drug War's escalation recognize Gov. Johnson's principled leadership, and appreciate the change it has brought us (with more on the ballot Nov 8). We acknowledge elected leaders who envisioned a future where 1/3rd of black men don't have a permanent record just because all the other establishment Democrats and Republicans support this Drug War. While elected governor, Mr. Johnson consistently objected to it, loudly and publicly. He believes the marijuana issue is all but settled, by Christmas is will be legal for more Americans than not. That is the first major win for the people against the states visceral, racist, and elitist Drug War. It is clear which side Mr. Johnson and Mrs. Clinton side with here. And it is clear where they both stood, historically.

Progressives who care more about control than about people, will never discuss Gov. Johnson's leadership. Its why many other "Progressives" are not voting for the Democratic candidate. And why many others now look elsewhere for their "news".

Re: “Bob Dylan Won the Nobel Prize in Literature. Does He Deserve It?

But should he really accept this Swedish prize ? After all Alfred Nobel was a major Swedish weapons manufacturer (Bofors Cannons) and inventor of projectiles, smokefree gunpowder and, of course dynamite. Still today the Nobel Prize Group is sponsored by the weapons industry in direct connection to Alfred Nobes own war industry: http://saab.com/region/singapore/about-saab/stories/saab-singapore-stories/2015/saab-supports-the-nobel-prize-series-in-singapore/

Listen to Masters of War !

BTW this devastating Nobel project must be stopped: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpigW2zkZKA

Re: “Listen to Our Hotline to Hell

She was saved in 1974. So was I, but it didn't stick.

In 1976-1977, Michael Jordan was in my homeroom at Trask Middle School. He had a sense of humor back then. I presume he still does. Hidden away, perhaps, but still there.

Your caller may have a sharper pivot, though. It's close.

Re: “The INDY’s Endorsements for Wake County Offices and the Sales Tax Referendum

"....[The State legislators] do not permit the creation of categories of purchase. A "luxury tax" (whether statewide or local) would have to be created & approved by the General Assembly, which seems unlikely (to say the least)."
And this is another good reason to vote for a change to our State Legislators, so our cities and Counties can have more flexibility to create solutions that fit the needs of their constituents, to make government more responsive. HB2 had the added suck of barring local cities from making their own legislation regarding discrimination- and maybe more.
Time to get them out of there.
