Re: “The rise & fall of a Boomer Outlaw

I dated Ed a short while in 1970-1971 and still have 3 letters with art work he wrote to me. He was a bit chunky, long haired and definetly developing his charming personality when I knew him. He was just a little too much for me and we parted friends and lost touch. He moved to LA and a mutual friend living there would speak of him ever so often. It's heartbreakingly sad to hear his story of total dependence on drugs, money and trying to keep up with the "It's". I'm glad he had a friend in Jack Nicholson who tried to help him the best he could. I still can't fathom Ed robbing banks but can see him wheeling and dealing. Rest in peace friend.

Re: “WGIV changes formats and business models — but will it succeed?

I have has some dealings with Ernest Smith at WGIV and he was very shady and never revealed in complete detail how his barter program worked, he was more interested in getting me to sign a multi-year contract and pay him monthly for advertising on an Internet radio station, I thought this was very odd, because most Internet radio stations have very little or no overhead and many only have 1-2 employees, so I declined to do business with Dr. Bizness and WGIV radio, but he continues to have female telemarketers harass me by phone regarding his bartering program for small mostly Black business owners, so I am letting you all know this guy is not running a program that your small business will benefit from.

Re: “Rep. Kelly Alexander, Charlotte's medical marijuana man

how got hemp for cancer
I am so grateful for providing me with Hemp oil here in the United State of America. I was diagnose with cancer 3 years ago, and ever since i have done a lot of Chemo and Radiation that have not helped me, but only damaged my immune system and render it weak and helpless. I came across the Phoenix Tears and i have read about the Rick Simpson Hemp oil a lot and saw that he could provide me with Hemp Oil here in the State, i contact him for the procurement of this medication, to my surprise the medication was procured and delivered within 48 hours and i have been on treatment for the past 3 months. Am now here to testify that am no more a cancer patient, I have experience a total transformation in my health sector with Rick Simpson Hemp oil service. for all cancer patient that live in the America and Canada region, get your Hemp oil from

Re: “Clinical distress

"He grabbed her arm" - Even that would be a violation of the FACE Act. Those people have no idea of reality.

Re: “NAACP calls on faith-based leaders to treat HIV like a social justice issue

Greetings to the general public, i want to inform the public how i was cured of HERPES Simplex Virus by a Doctor called Osas. i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how Doctor Osas cured them. I Was scared because i never believed in the Internet but i was convince to give him a try because i was having no hope of been cured of HERPES so i decided to contact him on his email that was listed on the comment ( ) i searched his email on net and i saw a lot of people testifying about his goodness. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took and it seriously worked for me, am a free person now without problem, my HERPES result came out negative. I pray for you Dr Osas God will give you everlasting life, you shall not die before your time for being a sincere and great man.

Re: “North Carolina's vague cyberstalking law makes it difficult for victims

Suppose the following scenario occurs; Person A initiates email correspondence with Person B, whom Person A found on the Internet and even though Person B is not out to harm Person A or anyone else and has never threatened Person A or anyone else nevertheless, Person A changes Person A’s email address without telling Person B what Person A’s current email address is thus Person B has no way to contact Person A, Person A never told Person B to stop sending Person A email or not to contact Person A through Facebook or any other social media, and Person A never told Person B what Person B did wrong that Person A no longer wants anything to do with Person B anymore like Person A used to do. Person B sends email to people whom Person A had contacted by means of CC and/or whom Person A knows and Person B tells these people the fact that Person B is worried about Person A, asks these people if Person A is alright, tells these people the fact that Person B hopes that Person A is alright, and asks these people to ask Person A to contact Person B. Why do the laws designate these behaviors done by Person B as stalking, cyberstalking, and/or harassment in spite of the fact that Person B is not out to harm Person A or anyone else and has never threatened Person A or anyone else?
Also, what can Person B do to prove the fact that Person B is not out to harm Person A or anyone else and has never threatened Person A or anyone else?
Furthermore, I have created a petition on the matter and here is the link to the petition;
Please reply.

Re: “Who killed El Barto?

So glad that our taxes are being spent cleaning off awful, kitschy art from people's property because boojie Plaza Midwood/NODA kids think they're "expressing themselves." The dumb pseudo-counterculture manifesto on the newest Bart mural is embarrassing.

Re: “World Refugee Day event spotlights those who risked it all to come to Charlotte

This article does a great disservice to those coming here LEGALLY from war torn countries with refugee status and trying to relabel ILLEGALS as "refugees".

I am not going to buy into it.

Re: “Chief Rodney Monroe is retiring with the majority of Charlotte getting along just fine, but will it last?

"allegations that he kept a degree from Virginia Military Institute that was given to him mistakenly"

1. Virginia Commonwealth University, not Virginia Military Institute.
2. They weren't "allegations"; multiple investigations proved that the degree was improper.
3. As a college degree is a REQUIREMENT for the job of CMPD chief, Monroe should have been fired for cause on the spot.
