This is not on McCrory.. NC has always had a floating tax for fuel that gets adjusted twice a year. Thank the previous ruling parties for that.

The fact that its even a question is a hypocritical stand point from here.
If it offends….. quit looking…. if it amuses… keep laughing… .If it doesn’t change your life one way or another…. **** and move on… you didn’t pay for it, the land it’s on or own rights to the holiday.

Is it customary for Attorney Generals to accompany the President on trips like that? Strikes me odd and coincidental that Holder could not be held liable for anything, much like the current occupier, but some how shows up sitting behind them in a foreign relations stunt.
…besides give me a break with all this celebratory BS. Tragic my arse. The man was 95 yrs old and sick. If you didnt see this coming sooner your a total moron. Lets not also wonder where all this fan fare was when he was alive.

So cool to see this story as my significant other is a descendant of him. It has been so cool for her to see his statue and to read about so many of the Kirkland’s that were involved. She never knew until we started talking about the Civil War. Being from NC and lived between VA and NC I go to the battlefields a lot. She has gotten to see even at the battle Bentonville battle ground The marker of a force lead by one of her own. It was so much cooler when she heard about this story as she was at the time in school to become an RN. Taking a snapshot of this screen so she can see it in modern headlines!

“Once a person is arrested and whether they are determined guilty or not guilty depends on the criminal justice system,” Grimpel said, responding to Kirton’s claim he is not-guilty.
This statement bothers me GREATLY! ……. This is a problematic attitude for which why most of us do not trust any government at all. They rely on the emotional mob style attacks, some of which can be witnessed on here, to incarcerate people who likely are very innocent but “someone must pay”.
I do not have the fact nor will I pass judgement on what happened. However the person that this quote came from needs to become a victim of their own ideals to understand the gravity of false superiority brings.

This story needs to go away. Yet another example of mob mentality. This is a glaring example of how giving the correct stimulus the “right” can get just as tard as the “left”
Too many arm chair prosecutors getting frothed up and ready to get the pitch forks out over a incident that may effect less then 2% of them on the basis of information the very news “organizations” they usually criticize has fed them.
Reality of the situation is NOT ONE OF YOU knows what you would had done because it has not and lord willing will not happen to you!!!
Move on to something more important like calling your Gooberment folks and let your feelings about the countries direction be known. Distraction distract distraction….all this has become.

For me as an ex smoker it’s not about the health aspect. As people should be free to smoke where they frequent at the “OK” of the land owner of which they are frequenting the same can be said for non smokers. Don’t want to be near it, fine, don’t go there. It’s your choice. But as with everything else choices for anything are getting less and less by people being voted in by those willing to give up their Choices for the sake of “The Government can protect you”

I would almost prefer a clumsy answer. That to me is more revealing then a politically professional empty answer. Tells me that she has yet to completely sell herself to the political deviancy Beck was asking her in one of the interviews.
Funny how we seek people from outside that profession to step up and when we find them and they don’t act like what we seek to get rid of all of a sudden someone calls foul. Make Up Your Minds!
Well said, I agree totally. I heard the interview live and while a little clumsy, I feel she has our (conservative) best interest at heart.
Damn it we have a chance to win the effing Senate please tea party do not put up another "I am not a Witch" idiot that is going to beat grahamnasty and then lose SC to a Dim. I DON'T CARE ABOUT HER SOUL I CARE ABOUT HER BRAIN!! Does she have one and can she use it, if not can we please get another candidate to SC before the primary???? If she can't handle a Beck interview does anyone here not think that CBS is going to make her look like Palin's dumber sister?? "I can see Russia from my house!!" SHEESH I am so sick of dumb politicians with an R by their name. Republicans have to be perfect or keep their mouths shut. Do like OBAMA STAY ON PROMPTER ALL THE TIME UNTIL AFTER THE ELLECTION!! Thankyou.

I would suggest too those who use the term “Red Neck”, do some research, and discover how that term came too be.”
I send the suggestion back to you. Originally “Redneck” was the term in reference to hard working farmers (you know, the people who feed the world) from being in the field all day and the sun beating down on them. Fast forward a bit and the connotation got turned into a racist/hate title, fast forward once more and with thanks to truth and a lot of famous people “Redneck” has risen out of the idiocy of the judgmental light to be known as hard working hard playing folk who do not take themselves so seriously that they fear political correctness and know how to exist in a state of their own choosing.

Sorry…. we can’t send money, we are under a sequester right? What?….. just US gov. jobs are effected by it …… you mean the money goes somewhere else…… effectively meaning BO is sending jobs overseas like he has accused others of doing….. surely not……

Let’s say for half a moment he is correct. Could that also be why we haven’t had foreign soldiers try to invade the Continental US?

sad thing truly is is that money was spent on yet another worthless study to find out what you can plainly see at any store that sells ammo and guns.
Jeez get outta the recirculated air and SEE the world with your eyes and not numbers!

Granted, we don’t know all of the facts, going back in this guys history, however, I find the statement “the school should have known he was a risk”, to be absurd. (given only the information here) Maybe the bullies should have been the ones tagged as a risk.”"
Here we go.. Blaming everything and everyone but the person committing the crime. The person the committed the act is responsible. Period. No argument. The responsibility lies on him and him alone. If the left would quit trying to Wussify the generations Bullying would not have the end results that seem to be on the increase like it is these days.
Not everyone gets a trophy, it’s not everyone else s fault, red ink does not damage students emotionally and yes…. you can be punished. Buck up. Teach your younger generation that words are only as meaningful as you let them be, and that those they deal with now are just a blip on what should be a much longer life of different people.

Brilliance in advertising…. for free!
This is straight from a court room. IN a trail by Jury… shout out what ever it is you want known, and have the person with the gavel scream foul and request the jury to “forget” it was said.
Same thing… “Leak” a picture that likely the general public would laugh at….. but guaranteed to rile up the professionally insulted so it makes it into the news… .and voila…. everyone is talking about your product!

Ok…. so …. soda’s poison, but, her monthly Botox is completely aux natural? Take her “50 is the new 30″ cremes and colorings away from her and I am sure she will scream foul!!!

ok… All arguments aside. I am still trying to wrap my head around how I keep hearing the word “saving” included in the same conversations as Debt.
Arguing a point of $715B in savings with something that’s pushing us $6T further in debt. I guess we are supposed to be thankful that’s it’s not $6T + $715B?
This I am figuring goes under the whole hogwash of “the more you spend the more you save”.
Ummm…NO…. The more you spend is the more you spend. “Saving” is having a positive amount of money and leaving with same amount. Anything less…. you spent it. Anything more is you profited.
Otherwise I saved myself $37K dollars today because I didn’t buy that truck I wanted. I guess since I aint a politician I can’t use that mysterious $37k to pay 1/3 of my house down.
Mostly because the $35k didn’t exist anyway!
Waiting for the day we get a REAL group of people to actually go through each finite expenditure that the Feds. spend of Tax payer money and absolutely eliminate anything that is not Infrastructure (highways, electrical consistency etc) , Defense ( which should be back in mostly state hands. Whats the point of saying you have a State “x” Reserve if the state doesn’t have say in when and where they go?), and Information (foreign intelligence and ambassadorial stuff). Nix the all other BS.

You know something was off in the perps head.
Driving a Kia….. .following a Truck……
What the ?
Nice observation....I was kind of thinking the same thing.

Oh no! The scary **** no empirical data retort!
How about well more then my share of repairs performed in auto repair industry of which I am still employed, enough knowledge about what tires do on a vehicle in motion as been trained by a world leader in rubber manufacturing, tire maker. And many fun hours Rock Climbing, mud bogging, trail riding and plain country fun a lab tech such as yourself might not understand.
Engineering results are great. Real world results are final. Alway know Engineering creates, real world use gets you closer to perfect!
