The trouble with you LP member Narth Carolinians is that you evidently are atypical.  Some of you went to high school.  A few of you might even have finished.  Got your heads all twisted and contorted up with too much education to allow you to understand those government officials you elected are just doing what you elected them to do.

Looking out after you and getting by with it.  You'll elect them again next time around.

That's democracy.

Well that was offensive.  I have a Master's degree so I got me an education (and yes I said it that way on purpose).  And yes I know I'm answering this late, but I had to respond.  Next time around, these politicians might be voted out.  They will learn & see when their constituents are angry or displeased with the choices they made.

      Offensive is in the eyes of the beholder.  My thinking or saying something is true isn't in danger of making it true if it isn't already.  And my thinking it isn't so won't keep it from being true if that's how it is.

      So the folks in NC are what they are regardless of what you and I might think or say.  I probably have a higher opinion of their intellects than the people they elected to office have of them.

      I've got nothing against the people of NC that I don't have against people everywhere else, pretty much including myself.  I hope they're smart enough in the future to vote in politicians who put on a better show of having some respect for them.

      Congratulations on your Masters Degree and the ease with which you choose to allow yourself to be offended.

        My problem was the general statement about North Carolina and what you were implying about the people in general.  Most of us (at least in Charlotte) are transplants from other areas (I've lived here 20yrs myself).  It would be like saying all people in NM are uneducated illegal immigrants (which I know is not the case- one of my good friends from Grad School was from NM).  Everyone is entitled to their own opinion & I respect that, but the statement was insulting.

          An insult with no teeth unless you'll concede I'm the final judge, the perpetrator of such things.  Otherwise my saying so is meaningless unless it's true.

          What do you care one way or another what I say or think?  It means nothing.

            Charlotte's original NBA team is now the New Orleans Hornets of Oklahoma City. What's next for them?

              They should go back to New Orleans.  George Shinn wanted them there so thats where they should stay.  He could build a better superstadium for the Hornets (thats what he wanted here but the people of Charlotte voted No to that- he wanted us to pay for it- so thats why he moved).

                lady:

                IIRC the Hornets had the lowest average in league attendance in 2004-5, which would mean even without Katrina, New Orleans was questionable as an NBA city.

                  There was a very popular radio commentator in St.Louis, for years, named Jim White, who was well known for one statment, in particular.

                  "You can't fix stupid!"

                  BSIT'S CONTROL AND FEAR!!!!!

                  The person who made this statement earlier was right on. It's about, control and fear. 

                  Lincloin freed the slaves.

                  The fact that some people think they are still the ultimate arbbitrators of other peoples rights, is the real problem. 

                  The fact that we as Americans are so easily distracted, and willingly, lead into side issues and arguements, among ourselves.

                   Prevents us from coming together as a nation, and a people.

                   It really seems, we are willing too remain, IGNORANT, rather than admit that, someone, who looks different or lives in another neighborhood could possibly be right or tell us anything about anything.

                  Excuse me, and I didn't mean too start talking about the world. 

                   That's why, politicians and others do such outrageous things in our names.

                      I would be curious to know the retention of NC state officials; and how often those, with two terms or more, are voted out.  If it is like most places, once in, in forever.  They wouldn't call it the good old boys club if it was full of innovative, free thinking, politicians. 

                      There are a lot of people, here in the yankee state of New Jersey, with more degrees than can be counted by with someone with one of those degrees. Yet, they are a week from voting back in the same corrupt group that has been there for years. I'm not sure what a Master's degree gets a person, other then bragging rights, but I do know has nothing to do with common sense!

                      Politicians don't run this country, people wanting to get along everyone else, elect them with a mandate to do whatever they like, whenever they like. Some times the lazzy get what they deserve.
