One of the worst things is the roads. In alot of the state, the roads are an embarrasment. Like it's been said before, a lack of now around here sucks. I can remember when I was a kid growing up through elementary all the way to high school(not that long ago....I'm 26 now), that we used to get a pretty decent amount of snow. It was common to get 2 or 3 6-8" snows and a 12-13" snow. Now, especially in my area, the last 7 or 8 years has sucked....I cant remember the last time we've gotten a 6" snow.

What about those of us who don't want to get in the melting pot? I'm very proud of my anglo-saxon heritage and would like to keep it that way, there's nothing wrong with that is there?

Giant cockroaches. Other than that, I'm pretty happy.

Wow, I change my answer. My new answer, worse than giant cockroaches, is ignorant racists.

Actually Native Americans got here from a land bridge via Alaska so I guess no one is a true 'native' if you want to be technical.

I dont think he was making a racist statement. Somone is proud of their heritage so that makes them ignorant and a racist? Do you consider Black History Month racist?

Funny that reading your blogs leads me to believe that you don't want to get into the melting pot either. Just saying.............

In my opinion, the worst thing about NC is the fact that a significant portion of people seem to have never stepped foot in a driver's ed class. I live very close to the border, and while I may complain that South Carolinians drive as slow as molasses, I would rather drive near a slowpoke (on a multi-lane road, that is) than to have to deal with tailgaters, people who can't keep their cars in one lane, and people who don't use turn signals. These are things that should be engrained in every driver's head. I used to think it only happened in Gastonia, but I'm finding this to be true in other areas. What gives!?!

possibly considering Michael Vick for the Panthers. Yeah....the guy that not only endorsed and contributed to dog fighting, but the swell guy that electrocuted dogs that didn't fight right.

Piece of crap comes to our team, I'll make sure I'm there with other rescuers of dogs to boo and boo and boo.

Good for him "he's sorry" good for him "he's a new guy" yeah ...too bad for the poor tortured dogs he electrocuted. I hope he burns in hell.
