Hi, I am looking to help my son connect with some other Bronies in the Charlotte area but he is only 10. Does anyone know of a younger group?

Re: “'Failure to prosecute'

We also hired this Eric Levine. He cost us an expensive law suit by dragging it out a year and doing NOTHING in that time. At one point he admitted he actually lost our file for 6 weeks. He did write 2 letters during the years time, that were so non-threatenhing & ineffective the people we were suing didn't even respond. He is very weak and not a good attorney by any means. But meanwhile for doing NOTHING he kept adding to our bill.
When we recently changed council, the new attorneys office retrieved all files from him. He lied and said they had not done so, & he was not aware of that. We saw the files at the new attorneys. He is just a huge liar, Thief. RUN! There are too many good attorneys to waste time with this bafoon. I'm putting together a complaint to the Barr now.

Re: “Out and proud in Charlotte ... sometimes

Great article Matt! It is sad but also necessary that folks have to sometimes filter their behavior and conversation for fear of a confrontation, violence or even retaliation. I worked for years at Historically Black Colleges and although I was out with family and friends it is hard to be out and proud when the folks that sign your pay check are not inclusive.

Most HBCU's are aligned with the church so they cannot be outwardly supportive when the church themselves have not made a stance.

I remember years ago traveling to P Town one summer with a bunch of other couples when I was still with my partner. I remember how it felt to openly hold hands and thought this is how other folks must feel and how sad were were in a way when we had to return to reality.

Thank you for exploring an important topic!

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

"Pretty low Michael Crapper [sic]." So FREEDOMPACUS thinks reporters also draw the illustrations for their stories and make editorial decisions as to what goes online? HAHAHAHA! Talk about not having even basic knowledge of how the world works. No wonder this dolt is supporting Greg Bannon, or any right-wing nut for that matter.

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

By the way, we have seen the hard cover edition of this magazine, wherein you have illustrations saying "no homo." Why isn't that nonsense on the internet picture edition? Pretty low Michael Crapper. Although standard practice for libs.

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

Calli Anne Roberts,

Are you trying to deny the scandal involving Tillis's staffers? Perhaps your memory needs refreshing:

Tillis defends severance payments for disgraced staffers

I think Tillis's $19,000 in taxpayer money to staffers who were not entitled to that money is certainly germane to this race.

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

I was with Greg Brannon until he emailed me asking for money because he said Thom Tillis was connected to a sex scandal. Let's be honest, Greg Brannon is running the most negative and politically disgusting campaign in North Carolina. The endorsements are shiny, but they won't win it for him.
Now the news of him being sued and all the bad press is discouraging and disheartening to say the least. I'll be supporting another candidate, I didn't leave Brannon's campaign, his campaign left me.

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

Huh? Greg Brannon is getting sued for security fraud? He misled investors and took their money? Wow he just lost my vote and I'm telling everyone I know so they aren't fooled by this fake.

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

I LOVE you brannontrolls screaming about how "brannon outpolls Harris" when you go by PPP polls which you only support when they look halfway descent to Brannon.
November and December PPP polls had Harris AHEAD of Brannon then the January PPP poll came out and had them all within 3pts and had Brannon TIED with Heather Grant at 11% of primary choice.
You CANT use a 'head to head' vs hagan as a watermark of ANY candidate being ahead of another in the primary, because they have to win the primary first goobers.
And any one of you that seriously thinks that Greg Brannon, the most NEGATIVE campaign out there, BUILT on attacks and mudslinging, HAS ANY CHANCE at winning this primary.
This guy is DIRTY. He's getting sued for investment fraud, he plagiarized his platform, EVERYONE has screenshots from his INSANE ron paul 3rd party "" website which he deleted. Oh and the "Grassroots Candidate" happens to live in a +1MILLION dollar house in Cary. Watch the wheels fall of this joke of a campaign built on smoke and mirrors.

Greg Bannon "has had several huge endorsements-including Rand Paul and Freedomworks."

Man, if there ever was a reason NOT to vote for a Republican/Libertarian goober...

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

The article isn't unfair per say, and I think the criticism isn't necessarily warranted. Two corporatists are fighting over the right to cull the sheep by pretend fighting democrats. Seems simple enough.

Re: “The Unofficial Underwear Issue

Seems that "pastel panties" (for show) were invented (as were bras) in the twenties for "flashers" performing in stage or in night clubs. Before that, it was Emma (Amelia) Bloomer's baggy drawers for bicycling with "bloomers." Before that it was many petticoats over stockings or less.

Re: “The Unofficial Underwear Issue

Right on, of OFF, to be more on target with panties. Read "Pantiless in NYC" for the benefits of beating yeast infections by going pantiless permanently. Also Ditch Your Panties" (Cosmopolitan) & What's Up Down There. Apparently as history goes the importance of skirts over "no nothing" was fresh clean air & nowhere for moisture & a warm place to grow for infections. Try reading on History of Unmentionables, where excessive layers & barriers were mostly to keep women off the workplace & unable to compete with men in most athletic/ sports events ... akin to hobbling & foot binding in a world of women's suffering/sufrage!

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

Whether or not you obtain access to does not alter the publicly known facts, that Brannon is the leading grassroots candidate, not Mark Harris. The polls show this as to the endorsements and enthusiasm. That might give a liberal license to falsify reality but it does not give a journalist one. You just basically lied to your readers because you couldn't get access to Dr. Brannon is what I think you're saying. Maybe you don't want your readers to know about a constitutional conservative with guts to stand up for individual liberty and the rule of law. Maybe you just would rather portray Republicans as either religious kooks or money grubbing cronies.

Re: “Power struggle: Thom Tillis vs. Mark Harris

Given Greg Brannon's apparent knowledge and understanding of history and the Rule of Law, he can look through the lens of the constitution at issues accurately. He does not simply talk the talk, he can literally map out the framework and apply it to issues.

This is extremely important today so that we do not get lost in partisan pursuits and have unintended consequences that violate Natural Law and Civil Liberties.

For instance, securing the border is certainly a priority for him as well as me, but to establish a constitutional free zone 100 miles in from all borders and have unmanned drones flying is certainly an issue of concern. Just one example of how government can take our best intentions and use it against us. For that reason we have to be ever vigilant and I admire his ability to retain principles and necessary caution in matters of security and border control.

It is disingenuous to print that the 'front runners' are Harris and Tillis when all empirical data shows do not have to get an interview to examine poll numbers in a race....

That is the beef folks have....thank you for for me, I will be supporting Greg Brannon, making phone calls, ect.

Lets do the work people!
