VOTER ID IN NORTH CAROLINA

I voted today in early voting in my district. In my 42 years of voting this was by far the most complicated voting method that I have every encounter. It was ran by the Republican majority that now controls our state government. The first hurdle is filling out a form that ask if you have and ID on your person. This law does not go into effect until Jan 2016. The Republican Recent Chairman was very obnoxious and demanding of this information.

Republican Lies in Advertising on your show.

While listening to the show on 880 AM here in Asheville NC, I heard two commercials for Republicans Thom Tillis (running for Senator) and Christina Merrell (running for Buncombe County Commissionaer). The negative ads boasted fallacious lies against both incumbents, Sen Kay Hagan and County Commissioner Ellen Frost and as I expected, you didn't crack wise against the ads. I understand that you're grateful for the revenue, Thom, and you expect that your listeners will parse the true from the false.

If the democrats lose ....

I have seen any number of elections over the years, but this is really the first election where I am truly worried abou the outcome. All year long we have been told the republicans are going to sweep into office throughout the country and wrest control of the senate from the democrats. This usually wouldn't bother me too much because the parties have always had a relative parity. That doesn't really exist now. Each side is becoming more and more polarized while those of us who used to be in the middle are being pushed aside. However, that is a topic for anopther day.

Jeb Bush and the Everglades

Regarding Jeb Bush and his relationship with big industry:

As President Bush was authorizing the Comprehesive Everglades Restoration Program (CERP) in 2003 which was supposed to be given $8.4 Billion in federal dollars to clean up the Everglades - his brother was approving sugar friendly legislation that allowed sugar growers a 10 year extension to continue to dump phosphates into the Everglades.

Quarantining Bad Behavior

Actually, quarantine originally meant 40 days, which should probably be the rule, unless proven otherwise. They say it takes 21 days to know if someone has contracted Ebola. But then you have the old Typhoid Mary story, which resulted in her being in quarantine for over 30 years, because she presumably continued to shed the typhoid bacteria and became a permanent risk.

Who Will Stop World War III?

Thom plus logo Back in 2001, after 9/11, Congress gave the president the authority to basically wage war anywhere in the world where there were governments affiliated with Al Qaeda, the radical Sunni Muslim group that came out of the Saudi Wahhabist movement. Iran is Shia Muslim, essentially the sworn enemies of the Sunnis.
