    legislature's attempt last session to eliminate the City of Boone's extraterritorial jurisdiction (S949)? Sponsored by snake worm tapeworm Dan Soucek, it was an attempt to relieve developers who wished to destroy the scenic mountainside land in Watauga County of the responsibility to operate under Boone's stricter zoning and environmental regulations.

    I notice that the bill never passed the House last session and doesn't seem to have been revived this session. It passed the Senate 32-17 on strictly party-line vote - with the exception of Charlotte's own tapeworm Democrat Dan Clodfelter, who is an attorney whose practice specializes in helping developers circumvent (or eliminate) any regulation of their "profession". Clodfelter is living, breathing proof that some Democrats are 100% as bad as Republicans (well, I guess we should have learned that from Lieberman, Lincoln, Baucus, etc).

    Anyway, since I'm from Charlotte and you seem to know Watauga County politics, I'm just curious. If these putrid sewage stains could capture a majority of the Boone City Council, they could simply eliminate all local regulation at the city council level, right? Kill two birds with one stone: disenfranchise the area's college students (some of whom are - horrors - black!) and other Democrats while making life comfortable for the Evangelical Teabag Taliban, and pay themselves handsome bonuses in the process, by raping the countryside for quick and dirty profit.

    Disgusting. Well, of course...disgusting is a synonym for Republican.

        and even the moderate Republicans (if there are any) - will get around the blatant voter suppression being engineered by these criminals and vote in droves for the good city council candidates!
