CRP: Douglas Block Project, was it worth the Money?

The Douglas Block is a public-private redevelopment project that will result in a thriving commercial center in Downtown Rocky Mount. Phase One of the Douglas Block calls for the renovation of six historically significant buildings, all of which comprised the African American business district of the downtown area in the early to mid-1900’s. The $8 million effort to redevelop this site has been financed by a combination of historic tax credits, new market tax credits, a Section 108 HUD Loan, and public investment. This special financing structure allows for unique and remarkable opportunities for locating your business at the Douglas Block.

Today was the so-called grand opening of this Block Happen. There was nice crowd of folks at this event.

Which by the way is noway finish at all. Yes, Most of the buildings are done and sidewalk is down, however No lamp posts are in yet, The road in front on of the Main Douglas Block Building isn't yet finish at all.  Landscaping is a joke, unless you truly love pine straw.

One of the Building have a large facade area damage, which I guess happen during the brick laying for the sidewalks, which is excellently done. So far the sidewalk are the best part of this Project..

Enjoy the Slide show...

NAACP Wants Sally to Resign, good luck

I’m afraid that no matter what this Cow will stay in office.
NAACP state president Anthony Douglas wants Kern to resign. “This is an outrage. We're calling for her to go today. She needs to step down now," he said. Under the leadership of Benjamin Todd Jealous, the NAACP has accelerated its support of gay rights and sought to recruit more gay leaders and people from diverse racial backgrounds. Kern apologized for her remarks Thursday. While the speaker of the House Kris Steele said he disagreed with her, he accepted the apology, reports KOCO TV. State representative Mike Shelton said he wants Kern reprimanded. "There is no place for those kind of comments on the floor of the Oklahoma House of Representatives or the Oklahoma State Senate," Sheldon said.

because Sally Kern the Oklahoma legislator said that black people have higher rates of imprisonment because they are lazy.

Its either full free speech or none at all..

Qnotes polls on the matter is getting very interesting. qnotes - north carolina south carolina lgbt arts entertainment news views_1303925320553
as you can see the number of those folks whom believe its ok to block certain types of speech is growing.

What speech do these eight folks want to block. Hate speech, which is in itself is very hard to describe, since what is hateful to one may not be hateful to another.

So its either full free speech or none at all. So LGBT community what will it be, since we are just as guilty of hate speech against those whom don’t share our views.. Either we want full free speech or none. We can’t have it both ways, no matter what Gay Inc. Claims…

Comic’s on Notice don’t fuck with the Dykes in Canada…

This post could also be named with the LBGT Community standard be the Death of Free Speech in Canada and USA????

VIA the Advocate, My FoxLA, and Vancouver Sun.

Proving that the Canada BC Human Right Tribunal is a full fucking idiots. 
VANCOUVER -- A Toronto comedian and Vancouver restaurant owner were ordered to pay $22,500 by a B.C. Human Rights Tribunal on Thursday after the standup comic hurled a torrent of sexual insults at a woman and her same-sex partner during a comedy show three years ago.
Yes, another damn fucking D*ke Bitch who can’t take a joke is suing.

I have to wonder will LGBT Equality Rights be the final cut that Kills Free Speech in North America?? If so then I don’t want equality, I would RATHER HAVE MY FULL RIGHT OF FREE SPEECH, THEN EQUALITY.

The asshole who made the ruling Murray Geiger-Adam, said the following
“His attack showed every sign of being calculated to inflict as much damage as possible, in as short a time as possible, on her greatest vulnerabilities,” he wrote in the decision.
Geiger-Adams ordered Earle and Ishmail to pay a total of $22,500 for lost wages and for injury to dignity, feelings and self respect.

Just how did she have lost wages.. If this bitch so fucking delicate then she need to keep her sorry ass at home where it belongs. Then she pay the victim card, Look at me I’m a woman who can’t fend for myself.. yes I want to be equal to men, but I still want special protections since I a female.. 

Charles Demers, a Vancouver-based comedian, writer and political activist, said the case sets an unsettling precedent for comedians.
“This ruling is going to have an impact on professional comics who are now going to have a harder time starting up in new venues,” Demers said.
So I guess Clay Aiken will be suing Kathy G, for her remaks on his name Gay Aiken..

Also why so long,
Pardy said Earle directed homophobic and sexist insults at her when she was a patron, and he was the master of ceremonies at an open mic comedy show at the restaurant in 2007.
Comedic performer Ruven Klausner said while Earle might have offended and embarrassed Pardy, he doesn't believe Earle violated her human rights.

so will lgbt rights to equality = the death of free speech??

Matt Doesn’t like others point of View..

QN2010_logo_web_greenaeBack in April 2nd  issue, Matt wrote as Editor’s the following column, “Marching backward to the beat of a despotic drum,” that attempts to write discrimination into state constitutions across the nation could.

A guy name Steve posted a comment, click here to see full comment.
Well it would seem this comment has got Matt’s knickers in a knot..

That he had to address this 18 days later on Qnotes, See post here. See Quote from Matt about post
The column was, admittedly, facetious — at least, in part. I’m more optimistic than to think our nation is completely headed to hell; unlike Tea Partiers, Birthers and other similar ilk, I believe our nation is ultimately on the right track, primarily because I still believe in the power of our democracy, the power of people to make change and the power of right to triumph over evil. I’ve often taken Martin Luther King, Jr.’s famous words to heart: “Let us realize the arc of the moral universe is long but it bends toward justice.”
So what pissed Matt off, this is a small part of it,
I am gay, and I oppose gay marriage, as do many normal gay people. I will work hard to have my point of view heard here in NC, so that we can finally pass a marriage amendment here. I grew up in Massachusetts and really don’t feel like seeing my new home state slide downhill as well.

Instead of trying to scare people into agreeing with you, maybe you should start having a responsible dialogue with people. This article is not responsible, and quite frankly is despicable because it represents one of the worst forms of fear-mongering and smearing of political opponents that I have ever seen.

The only true bigot is you, and those like you who continue to try and paint anyone who doesn’t agree, including good Christian people, as tyrants. I am confident that the truth will win out, and that North Carolina voters will overwhelmingly pass a marriage amendment in 2012. I also predict that eventually, Iowa and New Hampshire will repeal their gay “marriage” laws as well, since the people there never wanted it in the first place.
Of course he had to get the final word in,,
Me? I’m harming the gay community? Ha!
Sometimes it’s necessary for me to call people out when they are off-the-wall crazy or just downright wrong. (Our commenter, in this case, seems to be both former and latter.) Once more, I’ve been vindicated. Our commenter would like to think all is peachy-keen in our nation. Unfortunately, LGBT equality remains under attack, in very real and substantial ways.
In my opinion Steve has a point, I sure many Gay couples out there really don’t want to be married. He is also correct that the LGBT community and Gay Inc., does and is painting everyone who doesn’t agree with the statue quo as Tyrants and bigots, which I an equally guilty of myself.

But, Matt only see the world thru his rose colour Glasses and thru the memos and talking points from Gay Inc.

I don’t know if Matt is truly harming the Community at large, but here in NC, we know he as editor of Qnotes, could careless what happens east of Interstate 95..

Q-The Double Standard??

When Equality NC was planning their Town hall Events,, Qnotes ran a piece with all the info and location, Yet they really didn’t give that much about the Greenville, NC Event. Since we all know that Q-notes don’t care about Eastern Carolina at all.

There is the proof,
Town halls seek to educate, engage on anti-gay constitutional amendment « qnotes - north carolina south carolina lgbt arts entertainment news views_1303310009335
How nice, a small tidbit “Another upcoming town hall will include a Greenville event on April 6.” No location given, so this Event happen somewhere in Greenville. Thankfully Equality NC did give more info then Qnotes did.

Which brings me to my current point..

See this post,

S.C. LGBT group to meet with FBI,

See South Carolina is more important to Qnotes then Eastern Carolina.
S.C. LGBT group to meet with FBI « qnotes - north carolina south carolina lgbt arts entertainment news views_1303310817200

I really have to wonder why Qnotes doesn’t like the EAST??? O, I’m sure the closer we get to first annual gay pride event on the OBX, Qnotes will be a buzz with all the events and activities..

Some Just don’t get it: even hateful speech is still free speech, Period, get the F Over it.

This biweekly issue of Qnotes has a very interesting Poll. It deals with free speech. Many feel that their should be limits on it,only if its hateful or disrespectful. Well, folks the truth is on this one, you can’t have it both ways.. Free Speech is not a one way street.

Qnotes: POLL on this

qnotes - north carolina south carolina lgbt arts entertainment news views_1303154387126
Now some self hating jerk has voted No, on this poll. Well I’m sure this person in the future will not be at any protest or rallies. Cause face it, The right wing claims that gay friendly speech is hateful to them,and we claim their speech is hateful to us.

So who is right and who is wrong???

Freedom of speech in the United States - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia_1303155086838
Wikipedia has this to say about Free Speech,

Freedom of speech in the United States is protected by the First Amendment to the United States Constitution and by many state constitutions and state and federal laws. Criticism of the government and advocacy of unpopular ideas that people may find distasteful or against public policy, such as racism, sexism, and other hate speech are almost always permitted. There are exceptions to these general protections, including the Miller test for obscenity, child pornography laws, speech that incites imminent lawless action, and regulation of commercial speech such as advertising. Within these limited areas, other limitations on free speech balance rights to free speech and other rights, such as rights for authors and inventors over their works and discoveries (copyright and patent), interests in "fair" political campaigns (Campaign finance laws), protection from imminent or potential violence against particular persons (restrictions on fighting words), or the use of untruths to harm others (slander). Distinctions are often made between speech and other acts which may have symbolic significance.

Flag desecration has continually, albeit controversially, been protected by the First Amendment, despite state laws to the contrary. A Constitutional Amendment has been introduced to contravene the First Amendment's protection on flag burning, but it has failed to acquire the requisite enactment by all the states.
Despite the exceptions, the legal protections of the First Amendment are some of the broadest of any industrialized nation, and remain a critical, and occasionally controversial, component of American jurisprudence.

Yes I had to post my comment here on my blog since the editor of Qnotes still have a bone up his ass and won’t allow me to post comments no matter positive or negative, till I apologize to him a few others, well that day won’t be coming any time soon..

DSC_0096The Voter Photo ID Bill being rammed through our legislature is a bad idea.

Despite a total lack of evidence that voter fraud is a problem in North Carolina, Republicans are pushing a bill that would cost North Carolina millions to implement, disenfranchise honest citizens, and make voting a bigger hassle for everyone.

Facebook, Flicker, Picasa, (please respect copyright)

AmendmentPostcard2011Equality NC this Mouth had held town hall meeting to discuss Anti-Gay marriage amendment, that was recently refiled again this year.  Equality North Carolina held town hall meetings to rally support against a pair of “Defense of Marriage” acts recently introduced in the state legislature. Both acts would amend the state constitution to prohibit recognition of marriage between gay and lesbian couples; the Senate version would also prohibit other forms of relationship recognition such as civil union or domestic partnership.

Las Vegas housemate and former 'gay-for-pay" porn actor Dustin Zito, has a Gay Problem

6a00d8341c730253ef01538de13b40970b-800wiFrom the Towleroad,
Real World: Las Vegas housemate and former 'gay-for-pay" porn actor Dustin Zito, expresses disgust over having a gay roommate. “Over the years, you get a level of paranoia. You’re walking and you see a gay person and you get nervous. And some of them approached me and I’m like, dude, you gotta back this up.” Video.

Read more:

I guess since he is not getting pay to get and give blow jobs and get and fuck a guy, he doesn’t want a gay roommate. Could it be that he is really gay in real life and doesn’t want those urges to come up. You know where he might sneak over to his roommate bed and take care of his roommate nocturnal-hards-ons.. One has to wonder, since in my book there is no such thing as gay-for gay,, these gay for pay actors are either bi or in the damn closet..

It all about sex in public parks..

Matt is determine to set the record straight on sex acts in Charlotte Public Parks…
The myth that gay men are predators is nothing new. Most gay or bisexual men hear it at some point in their lives, even from family members or close friends. The prejudiced myth dates back decades, if not centuries. A now-infamous educational film produced in 1958 and released in 1961 is among the most recognizable examples available in the public domain. Produced for the Inglewood, Calif., school district and police department, it cautions teenage boys against the evils of “homosexuals” lurking in public restrooms and parks.

Well, sometimes the truth hurts more then a lie. As much as Matt would like it not to be true, In many parks and restrooms around the country men to meet there for sex. To said that we don’t would be a right out lie.

Just because there isn’t a long list of arrests doesn’t mean that it doesn’t happen there. If one truly seek proof if sex is happening in your local parks, either str8 or gay. All one has to do is the following walk through your park, follow some the trails and if you see a lot of old used condoms and wrappers the chances are that sex has happen there..

Now for a fact, that most str8 couple have sex in their cars.. While most gay men don’t.. Also because most gay men don’t and won’t clean up after themselves in these parks they leave the proof behind.

So remember just because there is no arrest records doesn’t mean that sex isn’t happening in that park.

in the words of La Tour,
People are still having sex;
It's been going on for quite a while.
Perhaps it is quite fashionable.
It hasn't gone out of style.

It's a fact that people are still having sex;
It's rather obvious--
It's just what one expects.
The evidence is all around
That everyone in every town
Has had it at one time or another in their life.

At this very moment,
People are still having sex.
In a downtown condo
Or a street in the projects.
Even though you can't see them
Or hear their breathing sounds,
Someone in this world
Is having sex right now.

Children should't be subject to life long medical choices

Very interesting statement, which I'm sure the #transinc community will claim to be Transphobic.. in natural. There is nothing bias ...
