xx I am showing my photo ID when I go to vote

I am showing my photo ID when I go to vote

Looks like illegal aliens are planning to vote in North Carolina. Even though it is illegal.

From http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/the-fix/wp/2014/10/27/does-my-state-require-identification-to-vote/

The pro-amnesty Hispanic activist organization the National Council of La Raza helpfully promoted a Washington Post article explaining which states people can vote in without having to use a photo ID.

Voter ID laws are at-issue across the country, with newly Republican-controlled legislatures having passed them in numerous states after the 2010 election, explained The Washington Posts Aaron Blake. Most states still request some form of ID, but dont require it. Another 20 states dont require identification. In case youre wondering where your state is at in all of this, a helpful (sic)graphic from the Posts graphics team.

Voter I.D. laws by state - Proving that you can vote
Voter identification laws vary by state - some requiring proof of identity at election polls. Virginia is now one of seven states where voters must present a photo ID.

xx congratulations, Chatham Habitat for Humanity
Yesterday at 10:57:08 PM by munn5
It was great to celebrate 25 years of Chatham County Habitat for Humanity tonight. Several volunteers from the very beginning were there (like Bob and Sandy Gabor, and David Scott). Habitat has built more than 100 houses throughout the county, and one of the early homeowners has paid off her mortgage. The Restore nets enough each year to buy materials for 3 houses - it has come a long way since the first tiny store.

xx Why do consumers allow this LP/Propane Madness?
October 28, 2014, 04:10:35 PM by Everett McGill
Rant Alert.  

I have filled my last 20 lb. Propane tank (think typical grill tank)   This is a pretty common practice, I think,  but, I live here, so, am posting about a local experience.

Just went to the nice folks (and they are truly nice folks) at Pittsboro Feed Store to get a couple tanks filled.  The prices are posted and clearly marked for their LP  (stands for Liquefied Platinum I guess   Wink )

$2.99 per gal (plus tax)   or
$18.95 per 20lb. grill tank  (plus tax)

You can usually get about 4.5 gal. in an empty grill tank.  Being kind, $19 for 4.5 gal comes to $4.22 per gallon.  WTF?  That is just wrong.  Checked at Lowes.  You can do the "swap your tank" out for the same price.   Seems like robbery to me, but, before you all chime in, it is because they can - I know.   The economy of scale thing (volume) does not float with me.  I can see charges a little higher but, this much more?  Nope.   And, they refuse to charge you by the gallon, no matter how many grill tanks you bring in.  

That is a 41% increase over the price per gallon rate. If you have something other than a "Grill Tank" to put it in, start using it now.  Complain.     I own three other containers and these 20 lb. grill tanks have seen their last fill-up.   This is like going to the "filling station" and if you don't buy more than 5 gallons, then you pay 41% more for your gasoline.   Yeah, bet that would go over well.

sad Flailing liberal Chatham BOE candidate Del Turner plays the race card
October 25, 2014, 09:06:59 AM by zorro
You know a liberal feels that they are losing when they decide to play the race card.

Saw this on the schools section of the BBS

Looks like one of the "Starkweather 5", liberal school board candidate candidate Del Turner has decided to play the race card toward the end of her presentation at the Moncure candidate's forum


Guess she thinks she can't win on merit (BTW, falling asleep in school board meetings is not a merit)
