Thanks for your feedback about the Kure Beach *area, y'all. Keep the comments coming!
OK, so Carolina Beach is 20 minutes away, and you ate at Dixie Grill (which is downtown WILMINGTON), and Cape Fear Seafood, which is MONKEY JUNCTION. I think a map might be in order. There are plenty of great places on the island, for fresh seafood and, yes, even fruit. A couple are mentioned above. But if Dixie Grill is the best breakfast you have had in a long time, I would re-assess your statement that you are spoiled in Charlotte...
@Alice- I did take the long, slow, beach/boardwalk route so perhaps that's how? Just my experience! :) -Desiree
I live in Carolina beach and it is more like 1 min away from Kure. It is really just one island. The only thing that differentiates between the two is a sign. I don't know how you figure its 20 min away.
The Veggie Wagon is awesome as well. Yummy fresh fruits and specialty items. Love it.
Surf House restaurant in Carolina Beach has great breakfast and lunch that use fresh ingredients. Salads, fruits, daily ceviche specials. It's the closest place to Kure Beach for fresh fruit, yogurt and healthy breakfast. Or unhealthy Hashbrowns, Bacon, etc.
The Republicans are totally united in their quest to sell America to the highest bidder. In unity there is strength, so the prospect is frightening. Unfortunately the alternative is the spineless Democrats. The President began the process of closing the Guantanamo Bay political prison and conducting trials for the people being imprisoned there. The Republicans went crazy and began a Fox News led scare campaign. The President backed down. Now replace the "Guantanamo Bay" with almost anything else he promised when running and you can make an identical statement. He began, the Republicans went crazy and began a Fox News lead scare campaign and he backed down.
We don't want the crazy right wing pandering Republicans. We want the man President Obama promised to be when he was running last time. If the Republicans ever find their way back toward the center where they used to be, the Democrats will be in big trouble. Most of their base is made up of people who are not voting FOR the Democrats, they are voting AGAINST the Republicans. What we really need is a strong 3rd party so that no individual party can get control of the entire government.
THANK YOU. Social issues - definitely a better choice. In every other manner - not a fan.
John, please suggest solutions. If all gun sales stopped today, that would still leave hundreds of millions of guns in the country. Tell me how you'd get rid of them. If your goal is to save lives, why not rail against distracted driving, or support vacinations or fight against malaria in the 3rd world?
This is a much different article than I expected out of John, but it ended about where I expected it to.
Falsehoods - You can "easily" order a gun online - Not true. You can arrange for a transfer from a dealer or an individual to a local dealer (though not from an individual in Charlotte, all the dealers I polled will only accept transfer from another FFL holding dealer) who will do the same background checks he would if you were in front of him.
"Nine out of ten Americans are in favor of laws preventing people with mental problems from owning guns" - I would say this is 10 out of 10. Those with histories that are reported (key word) to the database are already prevented. How do you stop the people like James Holmes? Enforce the laws we have; he was seeing a psychiatrist, and should have been flagged, but was not. How do you stop people with no record from one day flipping that switch? You can't, really.
"No one needs a damned assault rifle besides soldiers" - Please look at the CDC statistics on what weapons cause homicide. It isn't "rifles" where so-called assault weapons roll up to. You are more likely to be knifed than shot with a rifle. When you remove suicide, you are left with 11k firearms deaths (2009 data, CDC) in the US. Most of those are by people known to the victim (i.e. shot by your wife or lover, or both). Rifles account for 3% of those homicides based on CDC data, so about 350 (many of which are "hunting rifles" you describe but I give you the benefit). Therefore you are 72 times as likely to die in fall, or 98 times more likely to die in a car accident than be killed by a rifle. Only 520 "Boomers" in the entire country were killed by any kind of firearms in 2009, so John I think your odds of surviving the gauntlet you face navigating the 50 million or so gun owners in this country is pretty good. "We, the people", all 310 million or so of us, are given a method of government by the Constitution, and the 50 million of us "people" holding guns, as enshrined in that document, ensure that no one takes those rights from the rest of you, though you keep trying to take one very specific right away from us.
Nice little Anti-gun rant. Full of fire and fury but in reality, offering absolutely nothing to the argument. No suggestions, no options, no ideas...only the same old cry of "WHY DON'T LAWMAKERS DO SOMETHING?!?!?!" But here is the problems, laws don’t fix jack.
There are 3 basic types of people. Sheep, predators and shepards. It is obvious that DLP and John Grooms are happy to be sheep. But don't try to make me one.
As long as the Republicans and the NRA can keep the sheep convinced that ANY gun control law of any kind is just the first step toward the evil government confiscating all the guns, the foolishness will continue.
I wonder why no one ever claims that registration and recurring inspection of cars and licensing of and mandatory insurance of drivers is the first step toward the government confiscating all the cars?
What is sad is that people who hate others because of their ethnicity don't even know that they are bigots. They rationalize their hate by hiding it behind some other issue, like "my tax money".
Are you saying that CMS determines its students' citizenship status by looking at their birth certificates? That isn't possible! For example, my birth certificate says I was bor in Havana, it has my parents' names, my birth date... Nowhere does it say that I'm a US Citizen.
Um, yes. The point is that the article is incorrect. CMS captures birth certificates and their database has every students 'birth place' and citizenship status. if it is 'wrong' to ask for immigration info why aren't liberals up in arms that CMS even collects birth certificates and citizenship info in the first place? Or do liberals just object to the public knowing. Perhaps they are OK with the government keeping tabs.
Um, no. Just because someone wasn't born in the US doesn't mean they're undocumented. And foreign countries issue birth certificates too, which CMS accepts in order to determine what grade kids belong in, not their immigration status.
CMS already determines immigration status so they already know the names and school assignments of illegals. Why you ask? Because CMS requires 'birth certificates' to enroll. So, why would CMS require a birth certificate if any ol illegal can enroll without one? Because CMS tracks illegals. This isn't about asking them to track - it is about the public knowing how many illegals are using taxpayer resources. Here is a link to CMS’ own web site:
Fantastic art, must see.

Watching censors at work fascinates me.
When I watch a movie that has been sanitized for my protection before being broadcast on TV, I can see which things are deleted and which are left untouched.
Bad words are either blanked or beeped, leaving the conversation incomprehensible, or replaced with a less offensive word which means exactly the same thing. "Oh S**t" is prohibited, but "Oh Poop" is permitted. The most graphic sexual activity is permitted as long as their is no nudity involved. Sometimes they just blur out the "naughty bits" leaving it still perfectly clear to the observer that the actor is nude.
I watched "Starship Troopers" the other night. They took out that absolutely non sensual shower scene but left all of the grizzly and sometimes abusive violence.
I imagine nobody will ever read this but I really like Taking Back Sunday. I remember the first time I heard it, I was 14 and looked at my now best friend and with a look of awe on my face said "what is this?". Obviously my tastes in music have changed throughout the last 8 years but TBS is still one of the most listened to bands on my ipod because really TBS was one of the first bands that ever really meant anything to me, projekt revolution was the first concert I ever went to and call me sentimental but that still means something to me. And honestly I fangirled so hard when I heard he lived in charlotte and honestly I'd probably do the same if I saw him walking down the street, although maybe not because in the back of my mind i'd be thinking dear god this can't be him and i'm going to freak the hll out of some random guy. but anyway, I wish him all the best in charlotte and to know that you've got some true fans here.
