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this country to stand up and say "stop treating us like sh**" vote them all out and look into having their health care repealed and replaced!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.

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.

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.

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

A possible outcome of the Citizen Engagement Task Force is the elimination of citizens' opportunity to vote on rezoning proposals through their CAC, votes that today have no binding effect on City Council. But they provide one more piece of information. Ironically enough, the task force chair before taking the helm at the Fletcher Foundation, was in charge of the NC Voter Education Center. As reported by Indy in March 2012: http://www.indyweek.com/citizen/archives/2…

Re: “Durham Wants to Help Homeowners Whose Tax Bills Have Gone Up Because of Revitalization. But Should They Have to Pay the City Back If They Move?

The County should be allowed to place a lean on the property, as usual, but not forclose if the rise in property values is extreem.

Re: “The Durham-Orange Light Rail Now Costs More Than $3 Billion, and Durham Will Have to Pay More of It

"Connected fleets will ultimately get to the holy grail of public transportation affordable point to point connections."

Yes, autonomous fleets of small buses are infinitely more flexible than light rail. A small bus can go on any road, anywhere, at any time. Light rail can never "jump the tracks" to deliver service anywhere in a county as necessary.

And the number of passenger-miles delivered per tax dollar spent isn't even close. A small autonomous bus will deliver far more passenger-miles per tax dollar spent than light rail, because if the bus is operating with few passengers, the routes and timing of the bus can be changed to make sure the bus is more fully loaded. (And there will be zero tax dollars spent on the autonomous bus if it is owned by a private entity as part of an autonomous fleet.)
