This happens in all cities. Nothing new, even gentrification. You have to look at two things: cities that are run by Democrats and the public school system. If schools started teaching basics again, vs. how to be LGBT compliant, then perhaps students will be able to acquire gainful employment.

Re: “Chicken Bridge Bakery Feeds Bodies and Minds with Baked-In Messages of Resistance and Solidarity

Another White boy appropriates Latino culture. But it's cool, cause he's against HB2, supports the protestors at Standing Rock, and has Arabic on his bread.

White liberals, ladies and gentlemen.

It's cool to exploit the cultures and traditions of other races and the Indy will give you favorable press coverage so long as you signal your for gay marriage!

Re: “A Bill to Regulate the Practice of Hunting Deer with Dogs Stalls, But the Contentious Debate Continues

I support any legal form of hunting, and having recently moved to eastern NC, that includes dog hunting. That being said, it seems to be necessary in this situation to "police your own". If you know people don't like the practice already, and you're still letting dogs run all over private land and such, you're going to create more problems for yourselves. There's a large national forest right outside our town, and from what I've heard, it's become difficult to hunt because everyone runs dogs. I won't be "still" hunting this year because the likely hood of being shot is too high in an area with so many dog hunters waiting along the roads watching for a running deer to come across. Don't get me wrong enjoy a good morning in a treestand as well, but I will be bummed not being able to stalk through the woods. I don't want to see dog hunting disappear, and I would even like to try it once just for the experience- however people need to realize what's going on and get their dogs and situations under control before the WRC or state legislation is forced to make those regulations.

Thanks for spoiling the movie. Just because you didn't like it doesn't mean you have to ruin it for everyone else.

Re: “The Refectory Cafe

The Refectory is no longer on the Duke Campus. Their new, permanent location is on Chapel Hill Blvd, and yes they are open for dinner at night.

Their vast selections of local, organic, vegan, and sustainable fish and meat offerings are outstanding. This place is a treasure. I adore going there for a long, leisurely Sunday brunch, or bringing out of town guests, to pampered with table service at night.

And the desserts are incredible. A true Durham treasure.

Re: “Raleigh’s City Council Ballot Begins Filling Out

Make sure to include the incumbent's platform without including the challenger's. It's cool Not-So-Indy Weekly. I'll get my message out the hard way. Homelessness, Attainable housing, and improved police public interaction are on my docket.

Gentrification has pushed people out of often below code poor housing into worse or no housing. Durham is and always has been a very bad place to be poor. You're born poor here and you die poorer. Once the homes poor people lived in finally got fixed up they got thrown out of them. Bill Bell did awful on this but it's about all of us.

Re: “An Apex teen dies of an overdose of synthetic LSD

Hi all, I just want to askl if someone ever tried using shrooms or truffles for medical purposes? I was reading some articles about this magic truffles and shrooms before engaging my self for the first time. Like this one from: .They say that it has a very potent effect on the brain and hallucination. Unlike marijuana does it have any medical use? In one article that I've read magic truffles or shrooms are use on reducing the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and anxiety. It can also help people to quit smoking and alcohol addiction. Some studies also suggest the property of magic shrooms/truffles can be useful for cancer patients. I would really want to hear other insights regarding this new possible alternative meds. Thanks

Re: “Wake Commissioners Walk a Fine Line Between Being Fiscally Cautious and Fulfilling Campaign Promises

Fiscal responsibility means ensuring you are in a financially healthy position in order to respond to unforseen circumstances. With this runaway state legislature, that is even more important. I respectfully disagree with some of my BOC friends' position on this, and they with me. Some '14 commissioners can rightfully point to two years of honoring campaign promises to better support our school system. This budget does not come close to that tradition, and because I cannot honor *my* '16 campaign promise to Wake's voters and taxpayers, I will not vote in support of this budget as it stands. This is more than a simple disagreement about accounting practices. Elections matter and their results should be respected as an expression of the values and will of the voters.

Re: “Best of the Triangle 2017 Voting Results - Eat & Drink

Like Luna, Nana's Tacos is another rip off of Latino culture. It's owned by White people. I met one of them once while there. Nice lady, but totally appropriated Latino culture.

The fact is, for people like the owners of Luna Rotisserie and Nana's Tacos and Dashi, blacks and browns and yellows are there to be exploited. We're mascots to them. They steal our culture, our history, our traditions, and make money off it while doing nothing for us.

Then "good liberals" like the audience base of The Indy vote for them. Apparently it's okay for these businesses to treat non-Whites as mascots and appropriate their culture so long as they're for letting men in women's bathrooms and they're against Trump and they source their food locally.

Time for those of us who aren't racist to boycott Luna Rotisserie, Nana's Tacos, and Dashi, for exploiting the culture of non-White peoples and profiting off it while doing nothing for the community.

Re: “A judge says people are acting like "idiots" and a melee erupts in Durham family court

Smith wasn't calming RiShawna down, he was interfering with an arrest. The bailiff did not stumble, he was shoved (thrown!) back by Smith. The judge calling people idiots did not cause a melee, the judge awarding joint custody set RiShawna off. Did you really think i would just read the article and not watch the actual recording of the actual event?

Outnumbered 5 to 1. Good work NC! Ran off McCrory, ran off the Klan, and now overwhelmed this hate group. Keep up the good work!

If Nanataco is the "best Mexican restaurant in Durham County" then I'm freakin' Colonel Sanders. I wouldn't even put Nanataco in the top 20 Mexican restaurants in Durham.

Yet these supposed patriots are perfectly fine with radical Christian ideology shaping everyday life and laws while also amazingly ignorant about how this great country was founded .

These are some very alien sounding and looking people. Let's build the wall around them.

Re: “A Bill to Regulate the Practice of Hunting Deer with Dogs Stalls, But the Contentious Debate Continues

The post by DRS is way out there in terms of being factual. There are very few dog hunters east of I95 hunting property with hundreds, let alone the thousands he mentions, of contiguous acres under their control as he states. The vast majority of these hunters drop their hounds off on a few acres they may control , then allow the hounds to run all over the private property of others using the age old adage "my dog can't read". This is what pisses off those of us who actually do own our land and manage it all year so we can still hunt and enjoy it, only to have that enjoyment taken away because rogue dog gangs feel they can do whatever they want with another persons land.
This bill was right on the money and a common sense approach to keeping dogs off property they don't belong on. Contrary to the dog group hype, it did not make a criminal out of anyone for one offense and simply escalated the charges for repeat offenders, as obviously they are doing it intentionally. That's the dirty little secret the dog gangs don't want you to know. They fully understand they are running dogs all over the private property of others who don't want them there, but as long as current law remains they have the right to do so. That's why they fight so hard for no change, it allows them to continue violating the property right s of others uncontested. That attitude will certainly be their downfall and end deer dog hunting altogether. I personally can't wait for that day.
