The AntiACA ads turn my stomach, but I haven't forgiven Hagan for her pre-election immigration position, which prompted me to ask for my contribution back. I had made the false assumption that she would take the human rights position, as a Democrat. I'll vote for her, but I'm done with financial support. Some things are too personal, when the people affected are friends and family. 287g was a nightmare in NC.
If I recall, there was a nice webpage up on the history and characteristics of Hofmann Forest, which NCSU has removed. Is that page cached, and can anyone post that link? Having trouble finding it to share for background.
Please edit second paragraph. Two incomplete sentences. Thanks for the info otherwise:)
Let's juxtapose this quote:
'A liberal is somebody who can understand anybody but the ones who can't understand the liberals.'
With this one:
"As much as I admire Rev. Barber, I just wish Jesus and God could be dropped out one week because I think Jesus and God is what got us in this trouble in the first place with the far Right. And I don't see that as the solution."
There's a missing link when a liberal doesn't get the inspiration that follows from another person's spiritual beliefs.
I've been preached to about Jesus more than I can take, but I can tell you there's nothing like the power of the African American church -- the full weight of history, from Africa to America is still being carried through the Black churches, and it's a steam engine that won't quit. White liberals have nothing on it.
"We don't want to be a Durham-Chapel Hill-Raleigh 'intelligentsia' speaking our outrage only to other people with Ph.D.s".
(Barber does have a PhD, but he's got the equivalent of street cred as a leader of the people.)
@Diana: I don't have personal knowledge of Judge Jones, but I did meet him at the polls, and the Indy endorsed him, so he surely had my support. On the other hand, Judge Stephens ruled against me in a very painful appeal that severed my family in two, from which we have no evidence of a recovery, now 7 years later. It was a bad decision, and he was predisposed against me before he heard the facts in a guardianship case.
In the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin murder, you are blinded by "white privilege" Mr. Crowther, if you consider President Obama's skin color a "slight genetic handicap". In addition, your minimizing euphemism of "inappropriate pigmentation", no matter Obama's privileged education, he was a child raised by a single mother and grandparents, and is by no means on par in wealth with such as the Romneys. I am sure you know this and have chosen to inflame your audience. Satire, I suppose? Is it your ambition to consort with Stephen Colbert?
