If someone disagrees in learned cultures they present evidence to support their opposing views. That's democracy. Gene Nichol has presented his statistics on poverty in North Carolina and discusses policies and actions that might alleviate poverty. Republicans, if they too care about 40% of children of color living in poverty, should present how they would address this tragic statistic...and silencing Gene Nichol does not provide food, shelter, clothing and education for these impoverished children. Go ahead Republicans. What's your solution? And remember that evidence shows that trickle down and cutting taxes for the 1% does not work. If all this makes you feel uncomfortable, try going hungry.
Mr. Pope is wonderful man and extremely helpful. We have a saying at work that you can't get a job done unless you make 3 trips to Pope's. I've visited the new ACE Hardware up the road with the sales people wearing blue tooth ear phones -- the lighting is nice and the floors are all shiny. When I have patience I go to Pope's. Some of his service staff don't have the same touch as Mr. Pope. When I'm in a hurry and can't sort through Pope's dark shelves and limited inventory, I head to Ace. A visit to Pope's is like a visit back home. A visit to Lowe's is like a visit to everything but nothing. A visit to Ace Hardware is like being seen at a satellite health clinic where you get the essentials but you aren't sure anyone cares. You think we could clone Mr. Pope and put him in Lowe's?
