Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day Three: “National Security, Not National Benevolence”

The Colonel has a better understanding of national security than the president does. Best to honor his opinion, rather than try to belittle it.

Re: “The Republican National Convention, Day Three: “National Security, Not National Benevolence”

Yoohoo, Barry, check the stats. I know it's work, and they would reveal the truth, but look at one month in this table anyway. Just for the lark of it. For no other reason than to debunk that claim.

Re: “What Will It Take for Durham to Clean Up the Area around N.C. Central?

It's called urban blight. Durham may be maturing. "Gentrify it?" If the homicide rate were manageable, businesses respected and honored, taxes lower, maybe. But it's still Durham. The liberal's dream.

Re: “Chatham County has a plan to stop frackers. Can it possibly work?

As to the issue of fracturing for gas and oil deposits, this rag and the opposition to the practice deny science and fifty years of experience in other parts of the country. They spread fear and lies for the most part, and emphasize a few incidents related to bad management, poor regulations, and non drilling accidents.
The party which claims to be for everybody does not want senior citizens warm in the winter paying less for heating and cooking fuel, or the lowest environmental impact of any fossil fuel available.
I was raised in an area where pressure fracturing was used and I remember none of these horror stories told to you by liars and thieves.

Re: “Chatham County has a plan to stop frackers. Can it possibly work?

Tony D, How about a mutually beneficial deal? You get rid of the (what did you call our governor?) as***g in the White House and we'll consider our governor next fall. Our request is immediate, not next January. That includes a gag order on O************ ( I refuse to spell out any of my names for him)
That's called Tit-for-Tat.
As to your prejudice, you express a view demonstrating an allegiance so blind that even patient Job would refute your claim to righteousness. For every one discredit you find for Republicans, I will find at least two for Democrats. That is just in the boundaries of North Carolina mind you.
You could learn some manners online. But, then again, you are a Democrat. Se we should lower our expectations.

Re: “Half of Chatham County Has No Zoning Restrictions. That Could Soon Change.

The people in that part of the county have the right to deny zoning. They do not want it. That was evident at the public hearings held there.
The statement that the referendum was held symbolically in the last general election has nothing to do with the will of the people on this issue. The reason that Chatham is the only divided county in North Carolina is that the people decided to do it that way in the real referendum ca 1980 when zoning was first introduced.
The job of the commissioners is to listen to the people who live here, were raised here, work here, and obey their wishes. Their job is not to foist off on those residents their own personal agendas, the way they want to rule the unclean masses, the ignorant ones.
Further, The use of Hillary's logo superimposed over the flag of the state of North Carolina is not only optimistic, it fortells how that administration will rule over NC.
