Snooky is my pet name given to me by my adoring spouse 20 yrs ago. "Middleman" brings to mind a person who intecepts between two working people to make money on another's labor. My guess is that both names fit.
McCrory refers to everything that's not of HIS making as "broken". I'm shocked the state of North Carolina survived, albeit, thrived, before he sat in the governor's chair.
In other words: "Let drug addicts (and their dependents) starve to death." ???? What kind of peole do we have running this county? I want leaders who would insist that a portion of our tax dollars go towards feeding the needy, even if they are addicts.
I say we drug test the Public Officals, NOT hungry people.
Private banks (Sallie Mae) carry the student loan debt, not the goverment. Unlike every other loan, student loan terms are are almost 100% in favor of the lender and are grossly unfair to the consumer. THE BANKS created this problem and they deserve to take the hit for their greed and carefully crafted traps for student. Cold-cold hearted Mr. Levy once again shows he hasn't been within a million miles of a college campus and isn't qualified to speak on the subject of student debt. There are two problems that caused student debt: 1. Unscrupulous lenders and 2. Financial illiteracy by the student and parents. Why don't you talk about those two things, Mr. Levy, rather than "blame the victim" and offer alternatives to college that will never affect YOU.
REPEAT AFTER ME: You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality. You can't legislate morality.
Where has Mr. Levy been???? Certainly not on school campuses or he would know that hoodies must are extremely popular among all young people. To blame a cold-blooded murder on the victim because he was wearing a popular piece of clothing is beyond absurd, it's inexcusably irresponsible. Thank you, Mr. Smith, for once again injecting sanity into the conversation in response to Mr. Levy's cold hearted assessment of the Trayvon Martin murder. Obviously Dick Cheney isn't the only right winger in need of a heart replacement.
Hey, republican legislators: How about writing some bills that BENEFIT North Carolinians, not asinine garbage like Amendment 1.
LOL! Since when did "irresponsible" come to mean "something that doesn't agree with my point of view"? LOL, only a republican could come up with that nonsense.
Gay marriage is illegal in NC and Amendment I won't change that. There is marriage in the eyes of the law...then there’s marriage in the eyes of the church. If a church chooses not to perform same-sex weddings then they don't have to. May I remind Tony and others who think they can speak for The Lord: Gays are God’s children too.
Rush and the GOP thrive by bringing out the worst in people. Case in point: When Ron Paul suggested that a person without insurance should be left to die, the republican audience responded with cheers and laughter. It is evil to deny help for the sick or food and shelter for the needy while pretending to worship the Lord, as the GOP professes at every turn. Limbaugh and the other Merchants of Hate are undermining our democracy, our society and our decency, all with blessings of the Moore County Republican Party. How shameful, Mr. Levy.
