xx Truth Serum
Today at 07:59:09 AM by Muddylaces
I think if we had Richard Webster under truth serum the poster would be surprised to know who he is voting for in the commissioner race.   While we're at it put Mike Cross under the same truth serum.

Subject: Boiliong down the Election in Chatham County

Folks, we can make it simple: Commissioner Bock was the former chairman of the Chatham County Republican Party and he is the quarterback for the Red Team.

Hales and Crawford are on the "Blue Ballot" and they are members of the "Blue Team".

On a local level we can filter out the fear and simply say one side has a conservative view of governance and one side has a more progressive view.

One side supported our native son Speaker Joe Hackney when he was our representative, while the other side did not.

One side likes Congressman David Price, loved Congressman Bobby Etheridge, and supports Clay Aiken for the 2nd district, while the other side likes Congresswoman Renee Ellmers and challenger Paul Wright, who opposes affordable healthcare.

One side likes Sen. Valerie Foushee and Rep. Robert  Reives, while the other side pushes for Mary Lopez-Carter and Andy Wilkie.

And finally, one side proudly has Sheriff Richard Webster on the ballot again and the other side presents the choice of Larry Meadows.

I advise all folks to do their research, get to know the issues, and vote.

I hope to see you at the polls this fall.

Democratically Yours,

wink Diana Hales Greatest Accomplishment? Coming from California to get a man!
Today at 12:02:20 AM by zorro
I didn't believe this when I saw it, but liberal Diana Hales starts off her introduction by claiming she came from Southern California to find a husband. And she did. (Nervous laughter from the crowd.)

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/leF3QmAgb_8&amp;rel=0" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/leF3QmAgb_8&amp;rel=0</a>


This seems to be her greatest accomplishment.  Upside the head



Listen carefully and you will hear that she is against fracking and attends LOTS of meeting, most of them outside the county. Oh, and she's concerned about the weather.

BTW, what kind of cars do Diana and her husband drive. And if she REALLY cares about being "carbon neutral" shouldn't they only be driving ONE car?

xx Graybeal's feeble attempt to convince us he is not racist
Yesterday at 11:49:43 PM by zorro
From this morning's Chatham Chatlist -

Date: Tue, 21 Oct 2014 16:35:39 -0400
From: John Graybeal
Subject: False Charges from Heather Johnson


Using a half quote and completely ignoring the context, Heather Johnson's Tuesday post  engineers a complete distortion of what I said in July about how to get out the vote.

My July email attached an article from the Washington Post written by Melissa Michelson who, with Lisa Garcia Bedolla, had written a book entitled "Mobilizing Inclusion."  That book describes research finding that "repeated personal contacting" is the key to getting out the vote even if such contacts "have little or no impact on their underlying attitudes about public issues."  Michelson said, "It is the social interaction itself that seems to matter."  The article went ahead to say that "most interestingly, messages designed to appeal to ethnic or racial solidarities aren't more effective than general appeals to 'civic duty' or other broad concerns."  In other words, the research seemed to show, whatever we think about it, that contacts with minority or ethnic groups that stressed racial or ethnic solidarity didn't enhance voter turnout over what the contact alone would have produced.  

Although Ms. Johnson omitted it, my email started by saying "experiments show that personal contact is the key to getting people to vote."  She then turns my phrase, "no particular appeal to that group is required," into a charge that I advocate not discussing issues with minority voters.  My phrase, however was simply an attempt to say that the research found voter contact was not enhanced by appeals to racial or ethnic solidarity.  That has nothing to do with discussion of political issues.

On behalf of her Bock/Petty/Stewart slate Ms. Johnson will not be able to find evidence that I have advocated not discussing real issues, as opposed to her false issues, with anyone.  Indeed, regarding the dissolution of Chatham's affordable housing program, which Commissioner Bock expressed he was "proud of" at the September 23 debate, I have frequently pointed out the disproportionate adverse effect of that action on lower-income and minority citizens.

I believe that the Democratic candidates for the Board of Commissioners --- Diana Hales, Jim Crawford and Karen Howard --- are best prepared to implement the goals and values of All Chatham County citizens.

xx Mystery noise pollution
Yesterday at 04:08:43 PM by thudded
I live close to the Rocky River off of Rives Chapel Ch Road on top of one of the ridges near the church.  The river is a stroll through the woods north of me (adjacent property).

There has been some large loud machinery-made irritating whining noise going on all day for weeks now somewhere nearby (seems to be coming from the north side of the river) but we can't seem to figure out what it is or where it is  It's almost as if a large drilling operation was going on.   Surely they are not exploring the area already for gas!  Does anyone have any ideas?  Maybe coming from the Pleasant Hill Ch.Road area? 
It does not sound like a logging operation.

xx Vollerweather Sighting
Yesterday at 01:52:43 PM by Everett McGill
Found a cool site.  It will take a front face shot of any two people and Morph the two into a merged face.  

Here is my take on what a Vollerweather looks like:

Yesterday at 08:03:47 AM by zorro
Watch for it!

Today, we're sure to see the leftist Durham alternative newspaper, the Indy Weekly, endorse the Starkweather 5 based on not much else besides their own partisan prejudices.
