A young girl died and 22 people were displace by a two-alarm fire that started in an apartment on Treasure Island early this morning.
karlikalila: I'm out of the horrid state of NC next month but will be happy for my LGBT friends here when HB2 is finally struck down in court. If Gov. McSquishy and his TeaPublican cronies in the NCGA were really worried about transgenders they would stop letting McSquishy's former employer Duke Energy pollute the rivers with coal ash that contain endocrine disrupting chemicals that cause transgenderism during the gastrulation stage of embryonic development. These social conservatives will rail against an abortionists scalpel but will allow a fetus in a mothers womb to be poisoned in the name of the almighty dollar and campaign contributions. But perhaps they want more transgenders since that gives them a diversion to keep the social conservatives focused on urination and defecation while they raise taxes on the middle class and poor, decimate education, build toll roads with Lexus lanes, cut unemployment benefits, run off technology industries and replace them with low wage jobs, gerrymander voting districts, restrict voting rights for college students and people who work for a living, the list is endless. These Republican carpetbaggers instituted the ALEC agenda with money Art Pope inherited from his family's dollar store business and are robbing the state blind. Every law they pass gets struck down in court and HB2 will also. I never dreamed that South Carolina would surpass North Carolina in civil rights and economic development. But I'm Georgia bound where a Republican governor had the common sense to put down the theocrats. NC will rebound after the carpetbaggers take the money and run but it will take years. I can't wait that long so I'm outta here.
