Re: “We're fracked

It should give a big boost to the bottled water industry.

I don't know why those tree hugging liberals think we need to know what chemicals are being pumped into the water table by the millions of gallons.

Re: “The never-ending battle for veterans

Hi Shelly, you're correct--the exact phrase quoted to me by Wounded Warrior was "in theater," which was changed to "in an area of combat" to avoid confusion for those not familiar with military terms. We obviously missed some nuances in translation. Thank you!

Re: “The never-ending battle for veterans

This blog incorrectly states the criteria to become an alumni member of Wounded Warrior Project. Any individual with a service-connected wound, injury, or illness that was incurred on or after Sept. 11, 2001, is eligible to become alumni. It is not limited to combat injuries as stated.

Re: “Charlotte is ground zero for coal ash

Our company has an environmentally sensitive, comprehensive and cost-effective solution.
We can plant special, fast-growing bio-crops in the coal ash ponds to absorb the pollutants. The plants are then harvested, the pollutants are removed and safely disposed of, the plants are then converted into a clean and renewable bio-coal, using our innovative torrefaction process. Duke Energy co-fires this fuel in its coal-fired plants, using less dirty coal and resulting in less polluting emissions.

Repeat, shaking often, until problem is solved.

This solution - Priceless!!!

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

I want to start first by saying a big "thank you" to Dr Paul There are a bunch of nuts out there just trying to make a fast buck, but you are legitimate! I prayed before I went online that God would send me exactly where I needed to go to find help God directed me to Dr Paul on or mobile number

Re: “The last days of Delvonte Tisdale

wow I cannot believe the disgusting racist comments on here from some ppl not to mention we are talking about a kid here. I pray he didn't suffer and that he was unconscious already when he fell out, and my condolences to his family, esp his mother.

Re: “Puff, puff, pass a marijuana-legalization bill

Make it legal for everyone, not just medical. There is NO SHAME in wanting to get high. What the hell are you buying BEER FOR? To get HIGH!!!

Re: “The Unofficial Underwear Issue

"Going Commando" seems --- with good justification --- to be gaining in popularity. Best to be yourself & not be a slave to the fashion industry. Money not spent on underwear can be spent (or saved) elsewhere to great advantage!

Re: “The last days of Delvonte Tisdale

Racism is still so real. If this was a white 16 year old boy you would be singing an entirely different tune. We are all humans and make mistakes. The lack of compassion you mete out to him and his family here will certainly be shown to you and yours when it's your turn.

Re: “Puff, puff, pass a marijuana-legalization bill

4/20 is on Easter this year. Awesome. I cannot imagine anything better than having peeps and chocolate bunnies. This would have been a good year to line the baskets with another type of grass.

Re: “Puff, puff, pass a marijuana-legalization bill

the greatest plant in the universe is almost free, LET FREEDOM RING! 13

"any doctor against marijuana is a doctor of death" - cali secret 420

from 0 states to half the country, from low 20% approval to almost 70%, cali runs this planet by 2 decades, time to tie marijuana to the 2014, 2016 elections, out with the old, in with the new

20 years behind us southern states, sad and scary....nobody denies freedoms like the south, nobody…the top ten incarcerators on the planet are southern states...even if marijuana reforms did pass the republiCANTS in charge would deny you all your freedoms, centuries of matter though, we never planned on getting your backwards brethren from day one, half the country already but not one southern state, lol...not 1….the new generations are taking over in the south and they are nothing like their freedom denying parents, let’s ride…

Deaths by Alcohol and Tobacco: Millions
Deaths by Prescription Drugs: Quadrupled in last decade
Deaths by Guns: Millions
Deaths by the food we are fed: Millions
Deaths by Marijuana: 0, ever...they are killing my American family while denying freedom

Marijuana Super Bowl, Marijuana on Easter Sunday (4/20), MARIJUANA 2014!!!

love and freedom forever

Re: “The Battle for the 12th District

So well written and eloquently expressed, Michael, thank you. Yes, I work on George's campaign, and you hit the nail on the head-the flavor of inspiration a la 2008. I'm so proud to be associated with George, and more and more as I've gotten to know him.
Folks can keep calling him an underdog, but when i think of our team, our great volunteers, there's a quote that springs to mind: "There is nothing false about Hope".

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

I hate to say it, but the last thing we need in Washington is another Baptist, especially a preacher, who thinks it's a pulpit to America. Reformed Protestant and Baptist theology imposed on our government has been a ruination of this country. Ron Paul, on the other hand was raised a LUTHERAN, and the real LUTHERANS (of which there are few in this country) know that the Holy Spirit works in people when and where God pleases. Just give people liberty, freedom and a biblically just government for protecting life and property, and keep the coercive legislating morality OUT OF GOVERNMENT!! It is NOT the job of government to do that, Mark Harris, Mike Huckabee and others who are confused about keeping the Kingdom of the Right (Church) distinct from the Kingdom of the LEFT (Civil, government, ect.). Note: I didn't say "Separate", I said "distinct". God is over both kingdoms in this nation. He does not need Baptist preachers to "SAVE" us. Just read your bibles and do His will as citizens and that is all He asks of us. We do not need to save the nation of Israel, like the false Zionists spread either. This is their false doctrine being imposed on foreign policy, which has ruined our foreign policy too.
