    Why will you not talk about the real issues that are killing North Carolina by the Democrats? You are never fair. For example, how much money could Perdue’s son and other Democrats make off of the possible new project considering NC? Does it ever cross your mind the culture of the Democrat Party over the past one hundred plus years has created poverty, poor schools, a horrible mental health system and a pay to play system.( the list could go on)

    Didn’t those Democrats of the past become Dixiecrats and then Republicans over segregation?

    As a Charlotte resident, I can assure you that this blog item is by no means the first time the words “WSOC-TV” and “lamest” have shared space in the same sentence. One of the worst “If it bleeds, it leads” news stations in the U.S. (a few years ago, a watchdog group named them the second most violent local TV news in America, losing the grand prize to a Miami station that actually uses “cop show” music as background to its crime stories), WSOC-TV is so low-rent, it makes my skin crawl. The last time they were even remotely relevant politically was when their ex-sportscaster Harold Johnson ran for Congress in 2010.
    And hey, Frances Jenkins — ever consider getting your own blog instead of merely being a nuisance on someone else’s?

    Never mind the fact that things have only gotten worse since 2010. Remind me again who had a historic takeover of the General Assembly? That’s right none other than the GOP. Too soon to blame them you say? Takes time to fix things? Well if we listen to you guys Obama destroyed the country on inauguration day. You partisan hacks are so predictable. Not to mention NC has prospered prior to the economic collapse of 2008. Remind me who was in total control of the federal government for 6 of the 8 years leading up to that disaster. Darn it was the GOP again. Go some where else and sell your garbage we’re not buying it.
