Re: “A Desperate Pat McCrory Makes His Last Stand

Promoting and supporting poor policy, like voter suppression, HB2, and extremely poor coal ash regulation, is despicable but human. Attempting to change the results of an election you have obviously lost is possibly criminal and most definitely puerile. Cooper's lead grows with every inane, baseless, and desperate challenge. Grow a pair McCrory. Show a little class on your way out the door.

Re: “Loathe Hillary? Fine. Vote for Her, Anyway. Democracy Depends on It.

Hillary is like prune juice. You don't really care for it and it is hard to swallow. But if you don't you'll be full of s__t for years to come.

Re: “How Are N.C. Republicans Responding to Donald Trump’s Lewd Comments?

We need a new word. Hypocrite provides insufficient breadth and depth for the fact that the political party that purports higher moral standards and is known as the "Moral Majority" (what a joke!) has taken this long to feign abandoning ship. I say feign because even though this latest blatant evidence that Trump is a despicable demagogue incapable of empathy/integrity/humility will cause Republicans to publicly state that they don't support him I have no doubt that when afforded the privacy of the voting booth they will, like spoiled rotten brats, derive a perverse sense of smug pleasure by voting for Trump. Repugnant, repulsive, and nauseating are the first words that come to mind when I contemplate the reprobate himself and the miscreant peons who will shamelessly vote for him. They KNOW it is wrong but they will do it anyway. Which will make them all liars. They are Pro-Life, yet support the death penalty. They whine about the deficit but are too ignorant to recognize/remember that the soaring deficit can be directly linked to Bush's tax cuts/foreign wars. Bush started his Presidency with a surplus and ended it with a recession fueled record deficit. They go to church on Sunday and call themselves Christians and support an outspoken xenophobic, misogynistic, racist, fascist narcissist. They complain that nothing gets done in Washington yet they blindly oppose ANYTHING that isn't their idea; which ironically is EVERYTHING because they have no ideas. '

Like I said, we need a new word.

Re: “A legal maneuver could absolve Duke Energy of its responsibility for coal ash dumps

This is what happens when Bible thumping, gun toting, imbecilic inbreeds elect a corporate shill to be Governor. They lie like cheap rugs about honor and integrity when their sole concern is to shirk responsibility while exploiting natural resources for personal gain. It would be easier to swallow if we didn't all have to bear the weight of their collective ignorance. Albert Einstein said as far as he could tell there were only two things that were infinite; the universe and the stupidity of mankind. And he wasn't sure about the universe.

Re: “After three deaths in two months, cycling advocates call for new bike plan, education, enforcement

I am an avid cyclist and every ride I see people with their faces/attention/visual perception buried in their phones. To which I yell at the top of my lungs "Put the God damned phone down and drive the fucking car!" Right now in my mind I can see one young lady whose startled response indicated either guilt or fear for being caught doing something NO ONE should be doing, texting while driving. I believe the level of addiction some people show to texting indicates a psychological/mental deficiency and they should be required to seek treatment. All it takes is one second of inattention for disaster to ensue. And while they may not be as vulnerable as a cyclist, they are putting their own lives at risk as well as anyone in their immediate vicinity. Cars should be manufactured with scramblers for cell phones which would be tied to the ignition switch. Whenever the ignition switch is on your cell phone would be inoperable. 911 should be the only number that operates while your car is running. If you are a psychological/mental midget who has a message/call that just HAS to be made at that moment in time, pull over to a safe spot, turn the car off, and make your precious communication. NO text message or phone call warrants the loss of an innocent human being's life.

Re: “A voting scheme in Watauga County presages future challenges

The reason that college voters skew towards Democrats is that the more intelligent and educated you are the easier it is to see through the thinly veiled BS the Republican Party spews at an alarming rate. For example they spin a desired ban on assault weapons as an attempt to take guns out of peoples' houses. Like most of their hot air filled tirades it just isn't true. We need to get out the vote and make a decisive statement that the Neanderthal mentality of the Republican Party is obsolete and won't be tolerated by an intelligent electorate.

Re: “Lack of appreciation for Oakwood; Spence responds to lost boy report

Like it or not, the people who opposed the style of your new home in Oakwood lost the right to complain once the building permit was issued and construction began. Their attempts to reverse the decision AFTER the permit was issued and the building was started were wasteful, self-serving, divisive, and archaically imbecilic. I for one would like to offer an apology for the whining, inattentive, and less intelligent members of our community. As the Bible says, "Forgive them for they know not what they do." Congratulations on the completion of your new home. I hope it provides you with decades of enjoyment. Just the thought provides me with pleasure.
