I really don't think you meant it that way, lol.

No, I think he did. I just refuse to believe he typed it out with a straight face.

And he wants NC to legalize weed.

And just in case anyone involved in North Carolina politics lurks here, can we put a rush on this issue...maybe have it all resolved by Thursday morning? Friday at the very latest?

Nick Mackey is such a smarmy character - on oh so many levels. But I do think legalizing marijuana (or at least de-criminalizing it!) is a terrific idea, if only from a revenue stand point.

Not that I would be rushing out to buy any, of course.

OH!

Now I get it.

I wondered why the latest figures showed a DECLINE in high school graduates here in MECK. I hadn't thought it through. Of course! The demographics have changed.

Sadly, it doesn't appear that the influx of your pals, RYBARAN, has raised anything--except our taxes.

Being proud of raising taxes does seem like pure ignorance to me

Amen sister!!! And the Obama-nator was scheduled to do just that by now. I am VERY disappointed...

On a more serious note, I honestly think Charlotte leans left (by NC standards). However, the billboard was probably defaced by one of those christian conservative types that preach on the streets of uptown.

Here is one of those guys in action during speed street.

I always wonder what propels folks to stand on streets and scream about God sending everyone to hell, when Jesus was a lover, not a hater.

I can't figure that out. Makes me sad.
