That Reagan/Bush "trickle down" economic theory isn't working very well, is it? The rich keep getting richer and thats all they care about.
The Democrats in Raleigh are getting richer with the kick backs to get certain things past that the people will have to suffer for. Thanks for voting those Democrats back in Ghost Dog. I hope you get AIDS and die you POS.

No way. The time for deregulation has passed. You republicans have shown how bad things get when we deregulate. Take your credit default swaps and go home neocon trash. There is a new administration on the way that will not stand for the screwing of the middle class again.
For the record in which I speak which brings to the conclusion in which the person written above therof is completely wrong on one big assumption: I AM NOT A REPUBLICAN! Now onto the rest of the story: Before George Bush was governor of Texas, Ann Richards a Democrat approved the measure of deregulating utilities. This gave Texas residents a choice to whoever they wanted to get their power source from!

California failed because they did not have enough supply available to its people. Texas had made progress because there was so many power companies already set in place. With competition, one is forced to lower its price to compete with others. I remember this because when I lived in Texas, every time I moved, I would choose any utility I wanted. I received a list of about 20 electric providers and their electric rates.

While the deposit on some were more than others, their Kwh was less and vice versa. The point is we should be able to choose our providers instead of taking up the poop chute with no vaseline. I myself would like to see de-regulation in NC and utilities and stock markets are totally different from eachother.

And your little name calling tactic, is so immature. Maybe someday when you type on a computer you paid for you will grow up.

I could be wrong of course.. But.. didn't this company get two increases approved a few months ago? Is a second increase going to also happen soon? Sure hope I'm wrong about this - perhaps one of you all know if I'm right nr not.

ever heard of the Enron loophole? It was not designed by Dems, but in fact none other than Phil Grahm. Remember him? McCain's top economics advisor.

Prove it!
Consider that calling a person a domestic terrorist without proof is considered slander legally. You may want to rethink your approach especially since it has only added to peoples responses to me.
As for your actual comment I thought you made a fair if not petty post.
You don't use a real name on here, it can't be slander. I did my research.

I can understand Yep's problem with the education system in this state. He is clearly an under educated, poor fella can't even spell Raleigh, something any kid in sixth grade should have down.

Hey Mr real estate tycoon, how's your big court case going? Can't see how in hell you could afford lawyers, even one, with the market being so bad and your limited skill set.

You are a domestic terrorist.
You should ask your republican idol Ted Stevens, he has the answers for you. He knows more about how to manipulate federal money and the energy companies. In a typical republican outcome though, you end up with 7 felonies and loose your reelection bid.
Some time ago, there was a story in the AC-T about a woman who was raped in her home. This is what Yogi had to say:

I am in no way minimalizing this womans trauma, but. Did you know that surveys have shown that almost 80% of married couples have simulated rape during sex play? Or did you know that more than 70% of women have some form or level of rape fantasy. I am sure the fantasy is on the high sea with Brad Pitt as the handsom rapist. It is still a rape fantasy, though. Just surveys for thought.

Can someone tell me this. Why is Obama considered to be the first black president. He is half white. Shouldn't he be the first half black president.
