"Two drunk bros outside The Big Easy are about to fight. 'Are you fucking retarded?' one yells. 'Are you fucking retarded?' Apparently the other guy had grabbed a woman's ass."
And here we have the real problem with downtown Raleigh...
Let's not forget that Art Pope, who bankrolled all of the GOP candidates in the legislature (as well as McCrory), was made Budget Director by Pat. Pat can say he disagrees with the legislature, but it's just hot air.
There is a silver lining to the Civitas Institute's database: it shows that, despite Republican legislators' comments that the Moral Monday protests are accomplishing nothing and will not sway them, the protests and the negative attention they are drawing to our state are clearly a threat to them.
G105 knew what they were doing and the reaction it would cause. It was a cheap and base attempt to gain promotion for their station using the "any press is good press" mode of thinking. Unfortunately, their taste in promotion reflects their taste in music. As for Edge's comment about it being 2012, perhaps he should pick up a newspaper and read about the many voter ID laws being implemented across the country to disenfranchise poor, minority voters. It's also concerning to know that not one member of the Greater Raleigh Merchants Association took action during to parade to remove the truck.
@robg: Do you think everyone who commits a CRIME like speeding should be approached by police aiming assault rifles in their faces? The fact of the matter is that, regardless of whether the protesters did was right/wrong, legal/illegal, the police's response was completely inappropriate. A more appropriate/reasonable response would have been informing them, without pointing assault rifles at them, that they are trespassing and will be arrested if they do not leave the premises immediately, instead of acting like they had a meth lab in the building
Unfortunate that that racist prick Bob won "Best DJ". He's not even a DJ. Or someone this area should be voting "best of" for anything
The people who don't like this article are just mad that the Tea-Baggers have not one person who can express their opinions as intelligently, articulately, and fact-based as Hal Crowther
