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]
has taken all the appropriate steps to deal with the manager involved."
- BS! Still implying guilt of the innocent.

Re: “Christine Walczyk

Megg Potter Rader is the wife of Chief District Court Judge Robert Rader. Judge Robert Rader has parties in his house where he is present, pictures of the parties get posted on public Internet sites with his full approval and he and his wife invite people whom are involved with the court to the parties. SO much for impartiality in the courts. That is gone as is any kind of fairness in the Wake County Courts with Judge Robert Rader as Chief District Court Judge. Megg Potter Rader seems to keep busy, she also contributed a large amount of money to corrupt Judge Christine Walczyk's campaign and I was present at a court hearing where Judge Walczyk was out of control, violating the rules of the court and yelled at a litigant that she knows that the litigant tried to have her reassigned from the case but that Judge Rader denied the reassignments and she laughed about it. The litigant replied that Judge Rader's wife gave money to her campaign, then Judge Walczyk didn't seem too happy that so many people know about that. Judge Walczyk acts like a criminal whom doesn't follow any rules as a Judge and that is good with Judge Robert Rader because he doesn't follow any either. This is the same Judge Robert Rader whom was contacted by the news about how Judge Michael Denning of the Wake County Family Courts stated during a court hearing the discriminatory comment of "China wouldn't be so bad if it wasn't for all the Chinese." Judge Rader tried to play as dumb as possible and say that he didn't know about this but then behold he had already previously signed a motion that discussed Judge Denning's discriminatory comment. I guess Rader had convenient temporary amnesia. Judge Rader's wife contributed a large amount of money for a fundraiser for Judge Walczyk so Judge Walczyk is making fun of a litigant during a court hearing for wanting a fair trial. Yes, it gets worse in the Wake County Familly Court. Megg Potter Rader is Facebook friends with an attorney that frequently is in the Wake County Court. SO any litigant is already at a disadvantage when they have a hearing against this attorney as the attorney is personal friends with the Chief District Judge's wife. The Wake County Family Courts is out of control and needs federal assistance in following the rules of the court. The Family Court is filled with Corruption through Judge Michael Denning, Judge Christine Walczyk and their leader, Judge Robert Rader whom as Chief District Court Judge condones anything they do, and yes, I mean anything. There is another attorney, Evonne Hopkins whom is the Campaign Manager for Judge Christine Walczyk, how inappropriate as she is an attorney whom is frequently in the Wake County Courts. Judge Christine Walczyk also did business with another attorney's husband whom this attorney frequently has hearings in Walcyzk's corrupt court. This is complete violation of Judicial Code of Conduct but don't worry Judge Rader will probably pretend to have temporary amnesia if the news asks him about that although he is fully aware of this and condones it. Disgrace to the public whom deserves a fair, unbiased legal system.

Re: “Best of the Triangle 2013: Voters' comments

Sigh...I like WCPE Classical and WNCU better than WUNC but no choice. SADDIES. WNCU has the best Jazz morning show you can imagine and WCPE sticks a bit too much with favorites, but of course they are just that for classical and we need to keep classical and jazz at all costs. When WUNC went to all talk except for back porch they sold some of us out. And, now of course how can you listen to NPR news over and over. Give me Jazz or classical.

Re: “Vote for your favorites

I'm sad that Bullock's barbecue isn't on the list as I won't go anywhere else unless threatened. It is REAL EASTERN BBQ and the family has worked together and integrated way before integration and the way they all work together is a dream. I decided about 5 years ago after going to The Pit, that I didn't need to ever go anywhere else but Bullock's.

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

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

Maybe the press should uncover any preexisting conditions Pittenger has and ask him if he is fine with his Congressional health insurance being revoked as a result. You know, since it would be a burden on us taxpayers to cover for his poor life choices that led to his health condition and all.

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

It's time for the people of this country to stand up and say "stop treating us like sh**" vote them all out and look into having their health care repealed and replaced! Maybe when they start paying for their own insurance and stop getting a hand out from us, the tax payer, then maybe they'll understand what's it's like for some people!

Re: “N.C. Brewery Wicked Weed Purchased by Anheuser-Busch InBev. Dammit.

Ditto, I had concerns when InBev bought Devil's Backbone in Virginia, and their portfolio has only gotten better and their tasting room is now a full blown beer garden.

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

My daughter was born w/ a congenital heart defect. She's had 6 open heart surgeries and 7 cathodorizations. This would be a pre-existing condition under the ACA. Obviously it didn't occur as a result of living a high risk lifestyle. Some people are just plain idiots.

I'm all in on this album. Love the sound, love Amelia's soaring vocals. She brings a humanizing element to electronic music.

Re: “N.C. Brewery Wicked Weed Purchased by Anheuser-Busch InBev. Dammit.

As a longtime fan of Goose Island, I was nervous when Inbev acquired them, worried that such a "sell out" would harm the beer. It hasn't. Its only made it more widely available (I can buy it now in North Carolina, when before I could only get it on trips up to Chicago). I suppose there's always worry with these kinds of acquisitions about consolidation and corporate influence of product, but it's been pretty benign with Goose Island, and I imagine the same will be true of Wicked Weed.

Re: “N.C. Brewery Wicked Weed Purchased by Anheuser-Busch InBev. Dammit.

Good for them and much success moving forward! I enjoyed Wicked Weed's brews as much as the next guy. Before the shelling from the "corp sellout" hits, keep in mind the ultimate for anyone who owns a business is to be able to grow it as big as they can and if the opportunity comes, sell it for enough to move on to their next goal in life. Anyone that says otherwise is probably lying to themselves or has no goals in life.
