Thank you Byron. He meant a lot to all of us at RLT.
Very sad. Haskell was a remarkable person, and a very great many people mourn his passing.
Rest well, dear mentor.
don't worry Zack, we'll be back!
Let us hope that Proudly Unaffiliated stays Unaffiliated. I would stand up for his right to speak his opinion, just as I would for others.....But perhaps this "Unaffiliated" should read his (her) comments while looking in a full length mirror. That the place where they will be most respected. My prayers to you
Bait? Really, Proudly? You must mean that beating upside the head that the Republicans have administered to our state. Now it's true, some people -- including, yes, some black people -- aren't taking their lumps lying down, and some are even resorting to nonviolent civil disobedience. This strikes me as preferable to the alternatives of giving in or (literally) fighting back.
But protest is just one tact of several that must be used to, as you say, get us out of this one. I have some others in mind and will be writing about them over the next couple of weeks. Stay tuned.
That remains to be seen. My understanding is that Rutkiewicz finally arrived in Cary this weekend (5/12). I know Clarke is high on his arrival. However, James and Hamilton have been an effective pairing in the back. That said, with James' injury issues and Hamilton's aggressive demeanor, the RailHawks can't have enough depth at CB.
The Dems took the bait, partly you did not have a choice, partly, as with letting Barber become the most active and vocal opposition leader, you swallowed it all, hook, line and sinker. With more minority House reps and Senators in the General Assembly in living memory, then add Barber, the face of the Dem party is black now. Not white, not reasonable, not gay, not even all that moral or intelligent or articulate. Think Mel Watt. As this continues, the Blue Dog Dems (the ones you left off your leftist coalition list) will slowly but surely be pushed out. The Blue Dogs are necessary to achieve a Dem majority and they are disappearing. You may think you are of the 99% but at the ballot box you will be the 49%.
Yes, the Rs set the stage for the electorate to polarize their electoral choice and you Progs have made it easier. Blame the Rs if you want but all they did was set the stage and let you do the damage to yourselves. They knew you couldn't help it.
What is next? Real tax reduction and reform from the Rs, a terrific body blow that defunds the left, while you guys continue boilerplate Monday protests. Who do you think wins that one, even with a Prog-sympathetic media? Oh, and let us not forget the continuing Dems scandals which englishes the game against you, too.
Write an article telling us how you get out of this one. You look snookered to me.
I can't explain the influence George Jones, like George Strait and other Great Country singers had on my life. I would like to say that George Jones is uniquivically one of the best, and nobody who is a REAL COUNTRY FAN would never even think of any of his stumbles because everyone has gone through their own and George got through his hard times, smelling like a rose. I am going to miss you, Sir...FOREVER!!!!
