I am black and have done service industry work in the past and I must admit that black people do not tip very well. It's simply the truth. While I do agree that employers are primarily to blame for lack of pay in the service industry, it's still the classy thing to do. Given how flashy and fashionable we tend to be at nightlife events, if you do not tip it shoots a hole through what you are attempting to portray of yourself and creates a negative impression of us as a whole.
Until the Democrats learn to fight back, the Republicans will own the government.
Every few days a Republican appears on Fox News screaming about how the Democrats are ruining the country. Whether their claims are true or not, we hear nothing from the Democrats until the election advertising begins just before the election.
Email me with a source and let's talk. Btw you won't find in-depth pieces like that in the briefs section; that would be a news feature.
I've been to the Renn-Fest since I was in my mid-teens and I still consider going there the best time of the year for me. The shows, the food, the crafts, and beer. And things get better when it gets late in the day and most of the kids and families go home. Everyone gets raunchy, funny, playful, and the shows that are on that time get better, since the later ones are meant for older people. Trust me on this, the Renn-Fest is a great time.
I thought we would have an article about the Republicans' latest effort to remove ever more left leaning people from the list of registered voters.
"counselors at UNC Chapel Hill encouraged student athletes to take fake classes that required only a paper and zero attendance"
Are they seriously trying to convince us they didn't know? I thought it was common knowledge. (wink wink, nudge nudge) It was many years ago that Syracuse coach Boeheim told a reporter that the colleges should be allowed to stop pretending the athletes are students and just let them hire athletes.
In 1970, Congress passed the RICO Act. (Racketeering Influenced Corrupt Organizations.) It streamlined to rules for government prosecutions and allowed preemptive seizure of the assets of organized crime. No one, including the courts, cared that it bent the Constitution because it was for the war against organized crime.
Since then it has been used against the Catholic Church, The Louisiana Commissioner of Agriculture, the Key West Police Department, Major League Baseball, Operation Rescue, and President Obama.
The reason that the ACLU is always fighting for criminals is that bad laws and procedures are always begun there and are well established and accepted when they are turned on everyone. Sure it seems like a good idea to allow the government great freedom to look for bag guys without having to comply with the 4th and 14th Amendments, but it is not. It is dangerous.
DLP, those morons would be people like John Autry, who with the rest of City Council voted UNANIMOUSLY AND WITHOUT DEBATE to fund this program.
Tillis and Berger's attorney is the nation's leading anti-gay bigot, who co founded the National Organization for Marriage and sits on its' Board. NOM has been certified as a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Although the attorney has poked his nose into several states' same sex marriage proceedings, he has never won a case and won't win here. The only thing worse than an adamant bigot is a losing adamant bigot!
The only thing in the Constitution that anyone is passionate about is the obsolete Second Amendment.
We all thought that George Orwell was a sci-fi novelist. It turns out he was a prophet. 1984 is upon us.
Now let's wait and see how long it is before some moron says "I don't care if the government listens to my phone calls. I'm not doing anything wrong."
So let me get this straight 30 complaints out of a state of 9.8 million or .0003% justifies spending tax dollars on trying to get this overturned. I am sure we could muster a higher percentage on getting these two impeached for wasting money.
This article made my heart sing! I love the cover.
I fear that we have passed the point of no return. Citizens United was the final nail in the coffin of government by and for the people. The SCOTUS has declared that corporations are people and that bribery is freedom of speech. The flood gates of corporate money have been opened. It is no longer possible to get elected without selling your soul to the people who control the money, whether that is a political party or corporate special interests.
I offer as an example, the number of politicians who sing the praises of the NRA and their extreme views on gun control. I will believe the politicians are really that sold on the Second Amendment when they begin allowing assault rifles and concealed handguns in the visitors gallery of the legislative chambers. Until that day I will continue to believe it is about the NRA money and the votes of their non thinking members.
Since the taxpayers are represented by the Attorney General, The court should order House Speaker Thom Tillis and Senate President Phil Berger to personally pay the outside attorneys they have chosen to hire.
I wanted to take a moment a mention I firmly believe exactly as you do. PAC's and Lobbyist continual threaten the voice of the people.
That is why I am gearing up really early to run for the 12th Congressional seat in 2016. I am going to run a campaign that accepts no money what so ever from PAC's or Business's.
Alma Adams is going to be elected, however, she does not represent the people. She represent the old ideas, and practices that we are trying to get away from. Would enjoy talking to anyone more if they can make time.
They must have found a Republican judge.
I wonder why no one has challenged the amendment based on it being placed on a Primary rather than General election ballot. You know, a Primary where Republicans had numerous presidential candidates and Democrats were running an incumbent so they knew that Independent and Democrat participation would be minimal and Republican participation would be significant.
Would you buy a used car from these guys?
John Grooms it is better to be prepared and then not worry about sharia coming into our SC state. It's a better position if you ask me. I have all the faith one can have in my American judicial system, as much as one can have these days. When you report, would you mind keeping your opinion to yourself and just report the news. Would have been a better article if you hadn't.
Nothing says "freedom" like requiring a license.
It is very telling that the prosecutor had to jury shop in order to get an indictment.
I don't understand the Conservative apoplexy over gay marriage. A marriage is a family unit that shares the assets and responsibilities of a partnership. Members are able to make decisions for each other when disabled, automatically inherit assets on the death of the other, file joint tax returns, and are equally liable for each others debts. Sex is a very small part of the equation, and denying the protections of marriage does not keep them from having sex.
In a land where more that 50% of marriages end in divorce, It does not seem that it is gay people who are destroying the concept of marriage.
