Cruising Charlotte late 60's Early 70's

Does anyone besides me remember how great these times were. Crusing out Independence Blvd. South 21 drive-in and Shoneys had a drive-in. The Red Light to Red Light races.Ihop and the bowling alley and pool hall on Independence.The old Morehead street giant pool hall and bowling alley. The Cellar on Morehead where I sneaked in at 16 and saw the original Allman Brothers before they hit it real big. The Midnight Sun on Monroe road where I first saw Bo Diddly. The south 21 drive-in on south blvd and the old queeen drive-in theatre.And of course the South 29 drive-in on south tryon where I saw my first m rated movie.Hey the upstairs-downstairs cue and Billiards on Morehead. Ooh lala. Charlotte was a great place in the 60's 70's.  (Mar 19, 2013 | post #1)

I wrote this last night when I had been drinking a little and although I would have worded things a little different I have to stick to my guns as to my overall impression of this area. Just a few days ago they used pepper spray to disperse a Halloween night crowd downtown. This was a totally unnecessary show of force by the local pd. Why not use a bullhorn instead. Every weekend they set up checkpoints somewhere throughout the counties. They even have a judge they haul around with them to try the people on the spot. The judge uses a rv specially built for the purpose. Does this state have such a huge surplus they can afford such extravagance? Just two months ago they claimed to have a deficit in the millions. Its time for the good people of New Hanover and Brunswick County to say this rough-shodding of the people must end.  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #2)

I'm sorry to all you good peeps who live here but this area blows. I thought elite-ism and racism to the degree i've expericened here was long gone from the South but I guess I was wrong. And on the coolness scale your at a level 2 at the most and thats just because of the beaches. I moved here from Charlotte which is so much different it's amazing. Theres so much less elite-ism and less racism in Charlotte and a much higher coolness rating. This area is friggn' scary. Whats with all the friggn' state employees this is not Raleigh? Is this area controlled by the Mob or Nazi Criminals or what? No wonder so many poor people in this area turn to crime. I was talking to a homeless person with two kids and she told me the wait for housing assistance is 3 years. How can that even be possible anywhere in America today? It can't. Unless your trying to run poor people out. This area has a disease. A bad one.  (Nov 5, 2010 | post #1)

No Wonder Our State Is Broke

Has anyone been by the Government Center In Bolivia lately. My god it looks like a mini city. I thought. mercy, there must be a lot of people looking for assistance so I went inside and there were 10 people looking for help. The rest of the vehicles were employee cars. With so many people suckling at the teat of State Government no wonder taxes keep going up and our state is broke.  (Nov 4, 2010 | post #1)
