Hey Lu and if you're not the real Emlu, good morning to you too. Won't be long before basking in the sun. Dad has a few more treatments before we go.

On the "Day of Reason" issue by the mayor of Charlotte, consider the source or better yet, consider the "reason".

Yet it's another example of your socialist party's views that public nudity is not a threat to society. And your party wonders why teen pregnancies, single mothers, and welfare recipient numbers have gone up! Maybe your party should spend another couple thousand for a study to tell you what the rest of us already know!

You are purposefully blind. Business exists to make money. If the business cannot exist without sucking on the taxpayer's teat, we do not need them. When I spend $5 K on equipment for my business, I have to pay sales tax. When a furniture plant spends a million dollars on equipment, they do not have to pay sales tax. Both businesses provide jobs, so what is the difference? Answer: I do not have the profit margin to bribe politicians, the furniture manufacturers association does have the margin to bribe them. My business is lean and unsubsidized. The others are fat and sucking tax subsidized welfare off the NC taxpayers. Same as race car owners. When I can no longer show a profit, I will close down. That is how I like it and how it should be. The business baby momas are killing the economy and the working people of this state.

ONE car owner provides hundreds of direct jobs and a few thousand indirect jobs while creating millions in tax revenue. ONE employee provides no jobs and creates hundreds/a few thousand in tax revenue. Without tax breaks for the car owners, or and business for that matter, the worker has no job in NC because there are 49 other states that WILL offer that break.
Surely you're not that naive?

Guess Bloomberg wasted his eleven million dollars on those"gun control"commercials.Too bad, he has a lot left.
I personally like Ted Cruz so far, he's a rising star within the party. I think we'll see Rand Paul running for the nomination in 2016, and could possible win to go head to head with Hillary. That being said, I really can't believe how hard the Cimmucrats are pushing Hillary, hasn't that horse died? Isn't there anybody else in the party that would make for a viable candidate? Between the Rulers lack of leadership and her lack of leadership in the Benghazi scandal, I would think she would be doomed but when you factor in the dumbing down of the dumbmasses, I guess anything is possible.

I agree with the first part of your rant but it was you and your party that was singing a different tune when it came to the auto bailouts.....remember, they were to big to fail?
As a small business, you don't receive the tax breaks that large corporations do because of money. It's not the money they spend to bribe as you suggested, it's the money they generate for the tax base. If your business was generating tens of millions of tax dollars for the state then you too would be offered breaks to come or stay. You call it "sucking tax subsides" but IF YOU were offered the same subsidies, you'd jump all over them!

Rand Paul...I hope not....he is not electable...On the up side, Hillary has been damaged by Benghazi, and may yet face a penalty for that.

Saying they generate tens of millions of dollars for the state is a stretch, particularly when you consider that they take even hundreds of millions in tax breaks, subsidies and forgiveness of property taxes. Everyone should pay the same sales tax rates .

The bottom line is if NC doesn't offer these tax breaks, there's 49 other states that will.
NO company is offered more in tax breaks than they'll generate in taxes, that's absurd. These breaks are offered in order to lure or maintain a certain business while knowing full well they'll generate much more in taxes to recoup the breaks and then some!

A prime example of paying zero sales tax and sucking off the taxpayer's teat is the Caldwell county deal 4 years ago when Broyhill (Furniture Brands Int.) was given over 4 million dollars in cash to actually cut jobs because they threatened to move if we didn't pay the extortion. Now Carolina Panthers owners have extorted 87 million dollars from Mecklenberg County taxpayers supposedly to build escalators in the BoA Stadium so the "sports fans" will not have to walk up stairs. They now claim that the Panthers are "teathered to Charlotte for 5 more years. Actually , Charlotte is the one which is teathered. The reason taxes on working people is so high is because the business baby mommas are sucking up tax dollars faster than working people can pay it in.. the incentive thing has gone way past incentives and into the area of dependency welfare for the rich.

I don't know much about the Caldwell/Broyhill deal but I do know about the Clt/Panthers deal.
It was Mayor Foxx who approached Richardson about the city helping with the refurbishing of the stadium, NOT Richardson approaching the city. It's a known fact that Richardson is in poor health and it was Mayor Foxx who feared if Richardson passed then the new owner/owners would relocate the team. Again, it was Foxx who approached the team with the plan of using taxpayer dollars in exchange for a commitment from the team staying in Clt for the next 30 years. Both sides negotiated and compromised on LESS tax dollars than what was originally offered in exchange for a 15 year commitment,(regardless of who the owner is). This was actually smart on Foxx's behalf because the tax dollars allocated for the project would be returned in revenue for the city in less than 5 years, leaving another 10 for pure profit. Also, lets not forget that Richardson built the stadium using money generated from PSL's and his own pocket, NO TAX DOLLARS were used in the initial construction, so the city has actually been reaping the benefits for 18 years! I would say $125M tax dollars is just a small token of thanks for all Mr Richardson has done for Clt's economy!
As far as the city being "teathered", the $125M will be paid by a 1% increase in the food tax. If you don't want to support the deal, you don't have to eat in Clt, it's that simple. It's not like the city is taxing every Clt resident, ie. Cincy, Min, etc.
Since your "facts" were all wrong about the Clt/Panthers deal, it makes me wonder if they all wrong about the Caldwell/Broyhill deal as well!

Economic development is just an euphemism for corporate welfare. Another Caldwell County example is the New River Builders deal where Caldwell county taxpayers paid out $230,000 to New River Builders to "create" 35 jobs. I drive by there every day and have never seen more than 2 cars in the parking lot. So the jobs creation never happened. Did we get our money back? You guessed correctly if you said NO. Not only did we give corporate welfare to New River Builders, but we also gave them a competitive advantage over existing building supply businesses. This is the exact opposite of free enterprise brought to you by , you guessed it , republikans.

The "facts" are that 87 million dollars will be extorted from restaurants and their patrons to pay for sports arena upgrades. A true believer in free enterprise would not steal from and stress one business (restaurants) in order to subsidize another business(Panthers). What we have here is free enterprise in reverse, or not so subtlety concealed communism.

Seeing as how Clt is ran by the Commucrats, I could see the concealed communism argument, it's what the liberals are known for. That $87M will be recouped over a 30 year period, not exactly a major strain on those who eat out.
Exactly how is it stealing or putting stress on the restaurants?
My point is its not a tax on all Clt residents, rather those who choose to eat out. This also includes those who are just passing thru. Since I neither live nor eat in Clt, I could care less either way!

By the way Pro, if you're still around, aside from Rand Paul, who do you think can motivate the republican base, as well as encourage younger voters to vote republican and grab some Southern Democrats?, Many republicans were successful in the past by getting crossover votes from the democrats, Reagan in particular.

How about a female weigh in on the issue of breast feeding and when and when it's not appropriate and why idiots need a breast feeding law. I have a friend and a cousin who both breast fed their children until age five. That's warped to me and pretty close to sex abuse. Breast feeding children far beyond the age of giving them a sippy cup is out of control. When a child is old enough to ask mom for the teet or reach in her blouse to grab the milk jug, laws need to be made. Breastfeeding is a natural and healthy way to feed a child during INFANCY. There are breast pumps to pump milk before leaving for an outing that a mother can use and there's no need to breastfeed in public. I don't like to see it and I'm a woman. To me it says "I'm a woman too lazy to pump milk and fix bottles before I leave and not have to whip out the jug or have my breasts leaking all over my blouse, so I'll just make not only myself uncomfortable but everyone around me."
Moar laws!! If a woman wants to breastfeed who cares? If a business owner doesn't like it, tell momma and kid to go somewhere else to feed and suckle. Or put one of those stickers on their business door showing a boob with a line going through it, problemo solved
