North Carolina GOP Official Who Called Blacks 'Lazy' In Daily Show Voter ID Interview Resigns

“Unfortunately, Don Yelton does speak for the NC GOP. He just was being too honest in his racism. This whole crew of fat-cat, racist "good old boys," starting with McCrory, are the tail that's trying mightily to wag the dog. Let's hope that when November comes, it will bury all these rotten carcasses left over from the slavers who lost the Civil War. I say, a pox on them--on McCrory, on Moffitt, on Ramsey, and on all the other pork-fat swine who want to balance their budget on the backs of the poor.”

“Again I'm getting censored by Arianna Huffington. Let me say that Arianna is nothing but a celebrity hound, someone who isn't interested in our country's welfare, but only in her getting her name associated with the glitterati. I dare you to publish my comments, Arianna. If you don't I'm really going to lam into you on Facebook.”

“A person's choice should, of course, be honored. But I wish that women with breast cancer, or the risk of it, would look into alternative treatments before surgery. Doctors like to slash and burn. But there is scientific evidence that Cannabis Oil will cure cancer. Why not try that first, Angelina? You can always go the surgical route if the alternative method doesn't work.”

“He already raised taxes. Now Obama wants what he said was ridiculous and wouldn't work. Listen, the games need to end. This spending cannot go on. Boehner SHOULD close those loopholes so the fools on the left will FINALLY have to do what they claim they want to do. Cut spending. And we should do a major overhaul of the welfare system. Anyone caught lying on their application about who lives in their home, their income, etc., should be thrown off the system and thrown in jail for fraud and theft.”

Pierre99 on Feb 26, 2013 at 14:32:08

“If left-winger Obama is still out campaigning by March 1, and if Boehner does the right thing and won't raise taxes on the top 10% who already pay over 70% of the federal income taxes, then Obama will have a continuation of his failed policies and unemployment will go up and more people will be on food stamps. That would be two good things for the Dependent Party, right?”

“It's high time to close the gun-show loophole and make sellers responsible for background checks. As a USTA Tennis Referee, I must undergo a background check to officiate at a tennis match. Surely, people who deal in guns shouldn't be given a free pass.”

HJLester on Jan 15, 2013 at 16:57:14

“Seems like a simple enough measure. Set up an official office at the police station to perform the background checks, collect the fingerprints, AND register both parties as a) a seller, and b) a buyer (even if the sale is not completed). All instances of purchases and sales should be registered in the file of each of the buyer and seller.

I put that last bit in because I feel it would be interesting if a person attempts to buy, or buys, many guns within a certain period of time. If a person buys or sells say 5 guns or more per year, it might be worth having his or her name on certain watch lists...”

If he had read his Thomas Aquinas, he would know not to make stupid theological comments. But apparently he chooses to pander to those who want others to think for them.”

“This is a good compromise. It takes a whack out of out-of-control defense spending, and it allows those who are out of work to get some breathing room. When the new Congress comes in, progressives can push the people's program further. What this "deal" shows me is that Mr. Boehner has no control of his Party and Mr. McConnell has proved to be a toothless adversary.

Congratulations to Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Joe Biden for doing a great job. Next year we'll make even more progress. I've got the feeling that 2013 is going to be a lucky year for everyone except useless billionaires.”

“I'm grateful for the billionaires paying the bills. Half the country is on the take, but for some sick reason we have people who enjoy villifying those who pay the way for those who don't. I agree with Obama that we need to spend more on education, however once people get better math skills it's going to be tougher to explain away these unsustainable fiscal policies. Or perhaps not, as it seems acceptable as long as someone else is getting to pay the bill.”
