Re: “ICE: Wendy Miranda Fernandez Has Been Deported, Is Currently in El Salvador

Actually, she is a criminal. She came to our country illegally - she broke federal law. That makes her a criminal. Period.

Do you know what happens if you go to any country on the planet and bypass their federal immigration laws? You get arrested and deported.

Do you know their are people around the world that want our US citizens dead? Oh wait, i forgot: people like you want to "hug it out."

Re: “Updated: Thom Tillis Collapses, Taken Away in Ambulance, Says He’s Fine

Per USAToday:
"Hey everybody, I'm fine," he said in a video posted on his Twitter account. "Just running about two and a half miles and got overheated."

He said there was no CPR or special measures administered on him, contrary to some reports.

"See you back on the Hill," he said.

C'mon, Thom... I am relieved that a sitting Senator did not just keel over permanently, but I think it would be best for the state and country if you resigned for, ummm, health reasons... yeah, health reasons.

Re: “In Exclusive Interview, Richard Burr Says He’s Interviewed 30 Witnesses, Won’t Turn Senate Russia Probe into a Witch Hunt

Not to worry. This conspiracy about Russia electing Trump will be over soon. What I am most interested in, regarding the Russia connection, is the $$ Hillary made by selling 20% of our uranium to them, and the millions Podesta got from them when she was Secretary of State. The Democrats want to continue on the Russian rail, this is going to be exposed big time.

Re: “In Exclusive Interview, Richard Burr Says He’s Interviewed 30 Witnesses, Won’t Turn Senate Russia Probe into a Witch Hunt

Senator Burr has surprised me with his (apparent) even-handedness with this investigation. I hope he's being sincere when he says he'll follow the investigation wherever it leads. I would still prefer to see an Independent Commission and/or Special Prosecutor, but at least Burr seems to be doing his job. This is perhaps the most important and troubling investigation of my lifetime, so I hope Senator Burr will continue to eschew partisanship in favor of pursuing the truth.

Re: “Raleigh Votes to Establish a Community Engagement Board, Which Critics Worry Will Take Power Away from Citizens Advisory Councils

FONCitizen - But interestingly enough, the Mayor appointed Brad Johnson as her pick and he was previously an officer for a CAC. So he should not have been qualified according to the Council's rules.

Re: “With Charles Meeker’s Blessing, N.C. Conservation Network Development Director Nicole Stewart Announces Bid for Raleigh City Council

Let's hope that she doesn't get captured by the "Parking Deck Density" pro-development shills. What we need is walkable urbanism and great neighborhoods, not stackable suburbanism and drive-in "density"

Re: “Raleigh Votes to Establish a Community Engagement Board, Which Critics Worry Will Take Power Away from Citizens Advisory Councils

Replacing CACs with scripted meetings run by a Kafkaesque "Burea of Government Engagement" is poor governance at its best. And the way it was set up by the mayor reveals a thinly hidden agenda of reducing avenues of criticism for councilors, city staff and developers. As others have pointed out, with a 12% turnout for Raleigh's municipal elections, if anything the focus should be on improving this abysmal performance.

Re: “Raleigh Votes to Establish a Community Engagement Board, Which Critics Worry Will Take Power Away from Citizens Advisory Councils

The numbers quoted by the mayor are not correct. There are 6000 people on the CAC e-mail lists. The turnout at CAC's could be much greater if the city truly supported citizen engagement but it does almost nothing to promote them. CAC chairs are just a group of volunteers who care deeply for their communities. They cannot do extensive outreach. I'd like to reference that only between 12-15% of Raleigh's citizens show up to VOTE once every 2 years so it's important to keep that in mind when talking about engagement. I went to EVERY task force meeting. They have some good ideas but this is a very complex subject and definitely needs some professional guidance. The CAC's are a very important way for citizens to have their voice heard, ESPECIALLY in rezonings that directly affect people's quality of life.

Re: “N.C. Congressman Robert Pittenger on Pre-existing Conditions: If You Have One, Find a New State

When you get to the edge of a cliff and the fall looks dangerous most people change direction. It seems like NC voters believe they can fly if their elected official says don't believe what you see, The Fall is not there.

Do you guys also want to be able to purchase car insurance after you're in an accident? What about life insurance after someone dies? Sound fair?

Re: “In North Carolina, nearly 51 percent of renters are cost-burdened

The Federal Reserve has been dishing out free money (almost 0% federal funds rate) to cover up their housing bubble and bust in 2008. This is of course going to cause sale prices to rise which will of course cause rents to rise. They have also printed trillions of dollars which of course causes the prices of EVERYTHING to rise because it makes your money worth less.

The Federal Reserve, in corroboration with your government, has caused this problem. Please don't look to them to fix it. Unless, they're fix is to get out.

Re: “NCGOP: Hog Farmers Who Are Spraying Pig Crap on Neighbors’ Homes Are the Real Victims

One possibility is for a crowd-funded enterprise to provide a valuable service to these hog farmers by taking their hog waste off their farms free of charge. Since it's both feces and urine it could be done in tanker trucks (like gasoline) and then brought back to Raleigh where the trucks can dissipate the waste (as they currently do on the farm) with sprayers while circling the General Legislature complex. They can also nourish the golf courses and lush landscaping in the leafy enclaves our legislators call home.

Re: “U.S. Representative David Price on Trumpcare Vote: “A Testimony to How Low the Legislative Process Has Sunk”

Only the people who can pay for their own health care will survive this bill. The health Care industry will not insure people with pre-existing conditions. The rates willgo up for everyone.

Re: “Raleigh Cops: Smithfield Employees Did Not In Fact Break Into "F— tha Police." Sorry About All the Racism.

From the Raleigh Police Union (Teamsters):
"Last Friday, we shared a post on our Facebook page
about Smithfields Chicken and BBQ.
There was an investigation conducted
and while there were inappropriate comments made
by an employee of the restaurant,
not all the information in the post was accurate. [i.e. they lied]
Smithfields
has taken all the appropriate steps to deal with the manager involved."
- BS! Still implying guilt of the innocent.

SHOCKING! COPS LIED, BLAMED THE INNOCENT
*AND* FAILED TO APOLOGIZE! SAY IT AIN'T SO!

JURORS: REMEMBER THIS!

Re: “N.C. Congressman Robert Pittenger on Pre-existing Conditions: If You Have One, Find a New State

Pittenger and GOP keep repeating fallacy that "market forces" will increase access and lower cost in "for profit" healthcare. Since history, basic logic and simple common sense prove the opposite, either Pittenger and entire GOP are delusional or THEY ARE LYING. Deceptive talk about "increasing freedom" or "decreasingl regulations" really means increased freedom for insurance companies to SCREW YOU and fewer rules to make them pay for actual healthcare. OBAMACARE IS NOT PERFECT BUT IT IS PROGRESS. Its "regulations" generally put PEOPLE OVER PROFIT by prioritizing your healthcare rights over corporate greed. Good health insurance increases personal freedom. Duh. #voteNO #NC09Voter
