The NC Board of Elections has data on how people voted down to the priecnct level. My priecnct opposed the amendment by a nearly 10 to 1 margin.This did not surprise me, as leading up to the election, I saw hundreds of signs opposing the amendment and none supporting it, yet come May 8 the amendment passed. It was a real "Everyone I know voted for McGovern" moment.Although your post focuses on blacks, I think at this point it is really more of a rural-urban divide. All of the counties in NC supported the amendment except for the top two urban centers, the ones containing SWPL meccas Chapel Hill and Asheville, and the one with Boone where there are about as many college students as there are regular residents. Notably, the western counties in the mountains, which are mostly white, still supported the amendment.The derision heaped upon the rural people in the aftermath of the vote was shameful. Even the governor got into the act with her "Mississippi" comment. Like you, I don't have strong opposition to same sex marriage, but let's get real, this is not about "protecting families," as its advocates say, it's a symbolic milestone of cultural acceptance with little real world impact.

Personally just declare bkrcnuptay already, break the union contracts with everyone but the police because there will be anarchy and be done with it. this is my nuke option planTell NJEA pound pavement because after 6 months to a year of no eating in a bad economy the teachers who actually want and need to work will come back. Teachers salaries will increase by 25% across the board. Those under 45 get a 401K plan with dollar for dollar matching up to 5% and an end to their pension. teachers over 45-50 have their penison plan reduced to 50% of current obligations and 401K with matching to 9%. 50-60 75% of current pension 401K matching up to 10%. Over 60 retire. Adminstrators are offered 401K only no pension.Lottery proceeds directly to education for school supplies only to be equally distributed among each student. Not the teachers or administrators. If it works out to 250 bucks a student that is a laptop and supplies for each child. Negotiate contracts for supplies on par with what the staples and office max's of the world pay to further reduce costs.Issue a NJ jersey pass with license plates and charge nj residents half the toll charge on the parkway and turnpike. Charge everyone else that uses our roads 1.5 times the current rate. Raise the gasoline tax 2 cents dedicated stricly to roads. Eliminate 50% of the toll collectors.Police and Fire salaries will be based on the average of cost of living and the salaries of other officers in similar priced states. Pensions will be eliminated for all officers under the age of forty replaced with 401K accounts with 5% matching. Cut off all funding to inner cities who fail an corruption litmus test. Each dollar must be accouonted for. Enact strict accounting oversight.Force consolidation of districts where they may maintain their name identity if they so wish, but will share services at all opportunities. The era of home rule must come to an end. Each new district may have a minimum of one seat on the new township councils, number of council seats to be established by population counts.Force local goverments to reduce property taxes by 30% by the end of my fourth term. Reductions should be on an 8% a year basis. They should also have someone from the town go to every homeowner and apologize for robbing them blind every year.Cut all non essential programs. Privatize when possible. Slash and burn as many departments as we can while keeping the state running. Try and reduce the government by 20% first year, 40% second and 60% final year of my term. No more dual serving positions with local and state government.I will not run for reelection. I will not accept a public pension. I will take the salary for four years of work. After that I plan to be sipping scotch and speaking on the lecture circuit.

"folks of my generation gnelraely get along pretty well with people of other races and ethnicities."As long as we're going to use personal experience, I'm going to have to disagree. For all his faults, Alan Bloom pretty much nailed down race relations amongst youths in "SWPL-ish" professional & academic settings. To summarize his findings, whites are superficially friendly & tolerant towards minorities because they can afford to be - after all, the whites who made it into the Ivies or the big firms are well-off, steeped in Pee Cee, and intelligent enough to have beaten out thousands of whites and "qualified" NAMS. Although they may be burned that some of their friends lost places to underqualified minorities there's little overt hostility. OTOH, there is an intuitive "feeling" that NAM's are freeloaders & lightweights. With the exception of students in the soft sciences/ grievance studies there's little discussion of cutting-edge academic issues between the races; after all, most of the hispanics & blacks in these settings are too uninformed to carry on meaningful conversations w/o the identity politics crutch. Recall the articles about our Halfrican Hero's years as a lecturer, when he isolated himself in the faculty room & rarely discussed the legal topics of the day. Like the typical AA admit he was either several tiers below his colleagues or too lazy to keep himself up-to-date on current events. On my undergraduate campus (and at my current school) the end results seem to be the following:-Shallow friendships b/w SWPL's and NAMS, with both groups aware of the intellectual gap-A few close friendships between die-hard SWPL libs and minorities, who use blacks as props to alleviate white guilt-Persistent self segregation of NAM's who resent SWPL "generosity" (and fear embarrassment in professional discussions). This segregation may be encouraged or discouraged by administrators, depending on what their diversity czars say ought to be done.As another commenter mentioned, look for modern-day "tolerance" to break down as the economy worsens and the current racial spoils system becomes more pronounced/zero sum.

The New York Rangers made an incredible cocabemk last-night only to give the game away because they gave up in the last ten minutes of the game. Clearly, the Devils wanted it more and they clearly demonstrated the will to win. The Rangers had plenty of chances, especially Gaborik blew a perfect opportunity in front of the net earlier in the game. That should of been a goal and Callahan's near miss was so close, inches from going in the net. If the Rangers are going to cocabemk and win this series, their defense has to step up and play mistake free hockey. These careless turnovers must come to an end! Henrik must become a brick wall for the rest of the series! The offense must play the whole game, like they played the 2nd period. The effort they displayed was missing from the whole 2012 playoffs. Where has that display of offensive power been?

The conflict sttraed with micky being heavily vested in the false idea of marijuana addiction. I dont have to convince you of it.It exists. I see the flesh and blood results of it everyday. Many reputable reliable government studies in cooperation with many universities say it is. Addiction is continuous use to avoid intolerable withdrawal symptoms. I submitted a scientific description of addiction to you that you completely ignored.I have passed the Hawaii state exam on addiction, I am an addict of 30 + years, have worked with addicts and alcoholics for at least 15 at numerous professional facilities across the country.The withdrawals from pot are not life theatening as with opiates or aclcohol, the key ingredients dont assimilate to the cellular structure creating physical dependence but they do have a profound psychological effect that has people making some poor decicisions when they need more.Crack and meth are not likely to give withdrawal symptoms that are nearly as bad as that of alcohol or opiates yet they are just as addictive as anyone knows.So your argument that addiction is based only on the attempt to avoid withdrawal symptoms is sophomoric at bestYou know nothing.

they will take part in a debate on WBGO Jazz 88 on Thursday, October 22 at 8pm. But Republican guatonaerribl nominee Christopher Christie is waiting to see how Corzine responds to debate invitations from League of Women Voters debate for October 16, which would have been broadcast by the New York and Philadelphia ABC affiliate, and from NJ 101.5. Jon Corzine is afraid to debate on a major network affiliate with a large audience but agrees to a debate on a station whose board is stacked with Democrat party loyalists, said Christie strategist Michael DuHaime. He should be willing to go on network if for no other reason than to apologize to as many New Jerseyans as possible for raising income, business and property taxes, taking way property tax rebates and property tax deductions and doubling the unemployment rate. On Election Day, he won't be able to hide behind his money anymore. After Corzine initially refused to participate in New Jersey Network's October 1 debate that was sanctioned by the New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission (ELEC), NJN tried to move it back to October 22, since Corzine indicated he would take part then. That led to ELEC's four commissioners deadlocked along partisan lines, and to Corzine acquiescing to the original date. Christie Campaign Manager Bill Stepien then issued a statement inviting Corzine to debate on the later date, since it appears his schedule is also open for a debate on Oct. 22. While we have agreed to the debate, Christie has not, even after he challenged the governor to debate on that very same date-, said Corzine spokeswoman Elizabeth Smith.WBGO News Director Doug Doyle said that the October 22 date is not final, and that the station is attempting to find a way to accommodate all three candidates. There's nothing official on that on any side, because it's still in the preliminary talks, he said.The Newark-based station reaches the northern half of New Jersey, all five boroughs of New York City and parts of New York State. Doyle said that he will look into partnering up with other public radio stations if he can confirm a date with all three candidates.

I want to express my aaoprciptien to you just for bailing me out of this particular challenge. Because of browsing throughout the internet and seeing proposals that were not beneficial, I assumed my life was done. Being alive without the presence of approaches to the difficulties you have solved by means of the review is a serious case, as well as ones which might have negatively damaged my career if I had not discovered your website. Your main knowledge and kindness in handling all things was vital. I don't know what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a thing like this. I can at this time look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for the skilled and results-oriented help. I will not be reluctant to propose your web site to anyone who needs guidance about this subject.
