Note: How ignant? So how many people have “our” President killed? I don’t have a problem with anyone disliking the POTUS but damn they need to respect the man. If you don’t like him vote against him. Damn maybe that is too simple. Curmilus Dancy II – The Political Agitator
For me I am not trying to reach anyone when I am not campaigning for anyone. I share my opinions on politics and base it on however the conversation flow. I like discussing politics because no matter what anyone says they may see something that another person says that make them think whether they admit it or not. I like to make people think and yes I think about what they say as well.
But one thing I can say I have been actively engaged in Politics since the early 90’s and I am capable of deciphering information and capable of making up my mind for myself.
Frankly I don’t like to tell anyone who to vote for and I just give my opinion and if other people agree with me so be it.
I love to challenge and to be challenged however I will not define how I challenge but those who know me know how I operate.
I get credit for saying things that other folks are afraid to say publicly and it may not mean that I agree with it but I get punched. Well I can take it.
WASHINGTON — House Republicans are laying the groundwork for another battle with President Obama over spending and domestic policy with a bill that would cut some of his favorite health and education programs, tie the hands of the National Labor Relations Board and eliminate federal grants for Planned Parenthood clinics.

Wolf Blitzer: Why is the Republican Party basically poison for so many African Americans?
Herman Cain: Because many African Americans have been brainwashed into not being open minded, not even considering a conservative point of view. I have received some of that same vitriol simply because I am running for the Republican nomination as a conservative. So it’s just brainwashing and people not being open minded, pure and simple.
Wolf Blitzer: That’s a strong word to talk about your fellow African Americans. Brainwashed?

A Friday night decision by the U.S. Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that orders Duke Energy and Progress Energy to explain in 60 days how they would remedy anticompetitive effects of their merger in the Carolinas was vindication for New Bern, Mayor Lee Bettis said.
New Bern officials have stood nearly alone in saying the merger that would create the largest utility company in the country would damage competition to keep electric rates lower. (Read more)
BEAUFORT, N.C. Two brothers have been locked in jail for more than six months in this coastal town for defying a judge’s order and refusing to abandon waterfront property their family lived on for 100 years. (Read more)
Note: Black folks, white folks and land. This has been a long history.
This is just another case that bothers the heck out of me. I don’t know this family but I bet at one time they were very, very close. And then one day property has divided them. When family is divided I would think that life would be miserable for all involved because if family don’t have your back how do you really trust in others?
I commend the brothers for standing up with what little I have read about this saga. I trust and believe that they feel they are doing the right thing. I know how sincere my father would be about something like this if it was my family.
I know Anita Earls and I trust in her, "Although members of the Reels family no longer hold legal title to the tract in Carteret County, Earls said that morally she believes they should. She believes they were wronged by their relative, then by several attorneys who failed to properly represent them and by the courts, which denied their appeals."
Although this saga probably do have some racial issues attached, I do know that all white people are not the same and I do not put them all in the same category.
The following is enough for me, "An unusual legal strategy." I strongly feel that someone schooled Shedrick on how to claim the land so that it could be sold. Wonder were they black or white but if I was to guess I would say white. Oh well. Curmilus Dancy II – DCN Publisher
