Trump campaign flag on NC ferry triggers social media squabble, DOT investigation – News & Observer

A photo showing a Trump 2020 campaign flag flying atop a state-operated ferry on the Outer Banks has rubbed some people the wrong way since it hit social media.

Catherine Mitchell posted the photo in the community section of the North Carolina Ferry System Facebook page Thursday evening, saying it was taken aboard the MV Frisco ferry.

“I love our ferries. I love our ferry personnel. This does not make me happy,” Mitchell’s post said. “I’m sorry, but is this legal? How would the person who flew this flag feel about a Hillary Clinton flag instead? I thought that government services were supposed to serve everyone and not be political.” (Read more)

Obviously It Is An Issue NFL Anthem Protest

The NFL rule says a player can stay in the locker room while the national anthem is played. However some coaches have taken it upon themselves to tell their players they must come out and stand.

So it is obvious those who have a problem with the players staying in the locker room and kneeling during the anthem is ignant to the facts, in denial or don’t give a damn about others freedom of speech. Oh but the same folk will say it is about freedom.

I am so damn glad I can see, read and comprehend for myself.

‘I cannot condone the misogyny, the racism’: Oregon Republican becomes Democrat, citing Trump – USA Today

,A devout Republican commissioner in northwest Oregon says she can no longer stand by the party because of Trump’s “racist tactics” and changed her political affiliation to become a Democrat.

Lori Stegmann left a long explanation on her Facebook page on Wednesday for her sudden choice after spending her entire adult life as a conservative. She chronicled her love of conservative leaders over the years and her start in the U.S. as an orphan and immigrant from South Korea.

Stegmann explained to her constituents in Multnomah County, which encompasses Portland, that she didn’t want to leave the party but “it became impossible for me to stay.”

“I have not changed but the Republican party clearly has,” Stegmann said in her message. “There’s too much at stake in our country right now and we have to speak out. As a woman, a business owner, a mother, an immigrant, and a minority I cannot condone the misogyny, the racism, and the unethical and immoral behavior of the current administration.” (Read more)

Editorial: Tweet sends powerful legislators into a tizzy

There was a $50,000 legislative panic on display in Tuesday’s hastily called and disorganized special session of the North Carolina General Assembly. It was a day of hurry up and wait. Legislation that was supposed to be all set to go, prepared in secret of course, wasn’t quite ready for prime time and needed more work.

Why all the upheaval? Because Gerry Cohen, who served 32 years as director of the legislature’s bill drafting division, responded to a public call for suggestions and comments from the state Constitutional Amendments Publication Commission on short captions about the content of the proposed amendments. The commission, which includes Democrats Secretary of State Elaine Marshall and Attorney General Josh Stein along with Legislative Services Officer Paul Coble, a Republican, is charged with providing the captions that, by law, are included on the ballot with the proposed amendments. Cohen shared his suggestions on Twitter. (Read more)

I Support Whoever And Whatever Is Right!

I am an engaged woke life long black man, I am an active life time Democrat, I am an active life fully paid member of the NAACP and I am not apologetic for who I am and what I stand for.

I stand for justice no matter who it is for or against. I have no permanent friends no permanent enemies only permanent interest.

I have been called a lot of things because I speak out.

What I will bet you is that if you get to know me you will learn who I am and that I will stand with you when you are right no matter who you are. Although we may disagree on one thing if we agree on something else I will support that. But when we revisit that we disagreed on until we come to agree on it, we will still hash out that part.

At the end of the day I just want what is right for all folk however keep in mind that I am not ignant to the treatment that black folk have endured and still endure today.

Don’t blame me for what this world is. I had nothing to do with it’s creation but I can do my part while I am passing through.
