By the end of this day, it will be mostly over with. I feel confident my side will win so I can leave it at that. Good night all.
And North Carolina loose.

I never expected I'd change your mind, I just wanted to know if you eat (or ever have eaten) pork or shellfish. Or wear clothing that's anything but 100% cotton.

I know you've peaced out already (you'll be back), but you are aware how insane this sounds, right?

TY.

I was already in District 10, so there was no change for me. I went & cast my against vote. Good lord, I think that they will have close to a 100% turnout.

I was accosted by two older men, pushing the amendment. I made them sorry that they did that. They didn't even understand what they were pushing, & since they got in my face & my space, I explained it to them. When I told them that this was also going to have an effect on straight people, they stood there with their mouths open, catching flies. One of them said "Well, I hope they'll get married," I said, It's none of my business, & turned & left.

You want to throw scripture in here, we can do it. I can give you more.

Although lets be serious enough to realize you probably don't care.

Looks like our friends on team red were getting into some voter suppression shenanigans today:

North Carolina polling stations report confrontations over Amendment One | The Raw Story

Quote:
Gary Sims, the deputy director of Wake County board of elections in Raleigh, told the Guardian that there were “some really angry people” on both sides of the highly-charged debate.

Observers from the Republican party have sought to “challenge and confront” precinct officials from the board and were “clogging up the phone lines” back at Wake County headquarters. “This is the craziest election I’ve seen in 13 years” said Sims, at his office next to the courthouse.

“We’ve seen political party observers who are not precinct officials. They can ask to be observers. They want to challenge and confront and it’s a problem for our precinct officials.”

He said the reason for the confrontations varied, from calling up the board of elections to complain that there wasn’t a chair for them to sit on to pushing officials to get people to show ID at the polls.

“They have been clogging up the phone lines and getting mad at us,” said Sims. “People have to state their names and addresses and we check them. But they are challenging officials to make them show ID. They have an agenda, the ones that we’ve been getting trouble from.”

When asked whether the trouble was coming from the groups for or against Amendment 1, Sims said: “Put it this way: we had zero Democratic party observers.” He added: “I’ve probably said more than I should.”
