it will be tough to run for higher office with that kind of tea baggage, amirite???

Pity there isn't a legal mechanism that would allow federal authorities to move in and safeguard records so they don't get "lost". And prevent a company from divesting assets and declaring bankruptcy.

Karac: Hobodeluxe: Zeb Hesselgresser: Guy was an executive there before beoming governor. That's not a crime. He holds stock in a private  company. That's not a crime.

How does a Governor "work with Duke to quash those suits"? That would be a crime. Would not waiting for  some evidence be appropriate?

How does a gov "work with Duke Energy"?

I guess you only have to go as far as who appoints the regulators and executives at DENR of NC.
Oh wait the Gov does.
and DENR decides the penalties for violations.
which so far have been a few thousand bucks (less than 10% of what Duke contributed to the Gov campaign)
and they don't even have to clean it up or quit dumping it

They're also the fact that before an environmental group can sue Duke, they have to give six months notice to the DENR.    The DENR can then stop the lawsuit any time during that six months by deciding to investigate matters themselves.

The DENR has repeatedly waited until the last day of that six-month period before asserting it's authority and shutting down a lawsuit against Duke Energy.


If it's a legitimate lawsuit, the governor has ways of shutting the whole thing down. But let's assume that maybe that didn't work or something: I think there should be some punishment, but the punishment ought to be of the environment, and not attacking the company.

At one time I would have agreed with you, but he seems to have gone all in. Whether purely from political expediency or not, he's been doing some pretty convincing walking and talking.

Karac: Fast Talkin Fanny: Zeppelininthesky: They need to investigate this to the fullest extent. No mercy.

The Feds can try, but the NC legislature has McCrory's back. They'll pass a law making whatever he's done legal.

/help us roy cooper. you're our only hope.

I'm pretty sure the North Carolina legislature can't change any law which would call off the federal government.


Actually, they are trying to pass just such a law.

I meant, the governor can't "quash" Federal Civil Suits

Environmental laws that allow citizen suits include:

Clean Water Act Safe Drinking Water Act Clean Air Act 1970
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act
Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act
Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977
Endangered Species Act of 1973 Emergency Planning and Community Right To Know Act of 1986- SARA Title III

Ok, fine. What is the reason for the lax set safety standards that led to the spill? Any chance we can revisit those standards, maybe strengthen them a bit?

What's wrong with a little coal ash in your drinking water supply?
Coal ash contains essential minerals and vitamins such as arsenic, lead, mercury, selenium, aluminum, barium, boron, and chlorine and hexavalent chromium.

You'd have to pay good money for those additives, and Duke Energy is givin' 'em to y'all for FREE!

Quit yer complainin', show some RESPECT, and enjoy a nice cool glass of Coal Ash Enriched North Carolina Drinking Water!


img.fark.net
Yum Yum! Sure is delicious. God Bless Duke Energy!

Warning: Coal Ash has been shown to cause increased risk of cancer, learning disabilities, neurological disorders, birth defects, reproductive failure, asthma, organ disease, heart damage, lung disease, respiratory distress, kidney disease, reproductive problems, gastrointestinal illness, birth defects, impaired bone growth in children, behavioral problems, respiratory illness, neurological damage, tissue disease, and developmental problems. Studies have shown that living near a wet coal ash storage pond is significantly more dangerous than smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. Toxins in coal ash build up in the bodies of exposed animals and birds, causing the pollutants to move up the food chain when they are eaten. Children are more susceptible to the health impacts of coal ash. Pregnant women should avoid exposure at all costs. Arsenic, lead, mercury, selenium, aluminum, barium, boron, and chlorine and hexavalent chromium are not essential minerals or vitamins.

Pretty doubtful. The people that didn't vote for them last time (such as myself) are going to be the only ones outraged. The people that voted for them aren't going to care.

Without fixing the creatively drawn districts Democrats aren't getting the majority in the NC legislature any time soon. No matter how blue areas around Raleigh, Asheville and Charlotte get.

Doktor_Zhivago: FTA: The federal government has launched a grand jury probe into the spill and has subpoenaed both Duke Energy and Gov. McCrory's administration as part of that investigation.

Great.. Now it will be a conspiracy of Obama persecution and we'll get to hear about the martyrdom of poor innocent energy executives


If they want to be martyrs so badly, I say break out the crosses and lions and do it right.

Nice. Hey Governor Dipshiat - first of all we are under no obligation to be respectful of you. Respect is earned, not just given shiathead. Second, if that's your defense - to avoid answering questions about your possible corruption by pretending to be the aggrieved party because of so called "disrespect" - then that makes you seem guilty as fark. Third, asking legitimate questions about your possible conflicts of interest isn't disrespect, it's a legitimate concern of the electorate. Fourth, if your conflicts of interest harm the interests of your state then YOU are being disrespectful to the people of your state and that's REAL disrespect and not bullshiat, defensive, ginned up crap disrespect you'd like to invent to defend your wealth and power. Fifth, go fark yourself. Sixth, go fark yourself again - this time with feeling.

If bin Laden had had the foresight to incorporate al Qaeda, then he could have explained September 11th as an demolishment/renovation mishap.  And then Republicans would have apologized to him for getting buildings in the way of his planes.

Somacandra: FTFA: He is also known to own a considerable amount of stock in the energy company, but refuses to disclose that amount.  Reporters wanted to know on Friday about the appearance of a conflict of interest.  McCrory stonewalled, saying that he hasn't had any conversations with Duke energy and that the purpose of the press conference was to tout the administration's successes with the winter storm.When reporters persisted, McCrory told them this was "no time to be disrespectful."...McCrory is a former Duke Energy executive, but insists that his ties to the company had nothing to do with the lax set safety standards that led to the spill.

You're thinking of federal regulators, probably.  A governor is a state position, so any conflict of interest requirements would be from state law/constitution.  Since we're talking about NC, he can probably be as corrupt as he wants and not have violated any state laws.  Luckily, he's almost certainly violated the Hobbs Act.

Engineering? You sure you didn't major in drama?

Idk how the job market is for engineering students so I won't comment on that specifically but there are plenty of jobs available in other fields all over NC. There's a huge banking industry in Charlotte, tons of tech, CIS, and education jobs in the Triangle, and probably tons of hippie shiat in Asheville and Boone. Maybe none of that helps you, but just because you can't get a job doesn't mean there aren't any.

You're young enough to not know that these things come in ebbs and flows. Even though a bunch of idiots are running the state now, they won't be forever, so no future might be a bit hyperbolic.

That being said, if you don't like it and you're that desperate to get out hey good luck out there. Hopefully you find that perfect state that has plentiful jobs and aligns completely with all of your political beliefs. Good luck with that.

If the alternative is your "I've got mine/it's not so bad/you're just a naive little child" condescension, I think I'll take the more dramatic response then. You recognize it as a "political coup" of sorts but the most you can muster about it is that you're "less than enthused"? Really? I'm in my tenth year in the state and last year was worse than what was going on in Texas my last years there, at least in that it was so much compacted into a single session. And that is saying a lot. It will be some time before things get untangled, even given the most optimistic outlook for state government here, and who knows how much more damage they'll do until that starts to happen. In the meantime, businesses will eventually begin to sour on a regressive education climate.

Teabagger ⊆ Conservative. That's the thing. All teabaggers are conservatives. Not all conservatives are teabaggers. Teabaggers consider themselves more "pure" than many of the folks wearing the "conservative" moniker. Not that it matters - it's like comparing Illinois Nazis to Florida Klansmen. Sure, they're different flavors of stupid asshole, but they're both stupid assholes.

Semper IvXx: Summer Glau's Love Slave: Rhino_man: People wonder why I'm glad to have left NC...

now if only I can get my kid out of that hellhole.

I'm a 21 year old engineering student at a large NC university. The majority of my class (myself included) are already making plans to flee North Carolina after graduation. Many of my classmates from high school moved after they received their diplomas.

I completely understand your decision to leave. The job market here is incredibly bleak, and our politicians are openly derisive of education in any form. There's no future for us young'uns in this state. It feels as if Raleigh has declared war on the people.

/Sad, but true.

Engineering? You sure you didn't major in drama?

Idk how the job market is for engineering students so I won't comment on that specifically but there are plenty of jobs available in other fields all over NC. There's a huge banking industry in Charlotte, tons of tech, CIS, and education jobs in the Triangle, and probably tons of hippie shiat in Asheville and Boone. Maybe none of that helps you, but just because you can't get a job doesn't mean there aren't any.

You're young enough to not know that these things come in ebbs and flows. Even though a bunch of idiots are running the state now, they won't be forever, so no future might be a bit hyperbolic.

That being said, if you don't like it and you're that desperate to get out hey good luck out there. Hopefully you find that perfect state that has plentiful jobs and aligns completely with all of your political beliefs. Good luck with that.

/you could have just said you went to State lol
//wife graduated from there
///transplant, like the state just fine, like where I live just fine (outside Raleigh), less than enthused with the recent political coup the Republicans pulled off here


Ask me how I know that you don't know anything about Charlotte's booming banking industry.

/Can you say "massive layoffs"?
//I live about 20 minutes away from Charlotte, in a neighborhood full of former bank workers.
///Also, you didn't come across as a condescending jerk in your rant said no one ever.

Bullshiat. NC is in it's 5th year of a teacher hiring freeze.

Do your research before you try to BS your way through an answer.

You are so right. I'm a horrible person for wanting to improve my life.

Thank you Summer Glau's Love Slave.  You just made me giggle.  Keep fighting us old people who try to "guide" you and you'll almost never go wrong.  (This advice does not apply to my children!)

/enjoy a free month TF but don't neglect engineering.  We need bridges
//proof of how old I am?  I didn't know who Summer Glau is.

Some drunkard just bought me a month of TotalFARK.

Thank you extremely much. I will now help you hide a body. And buy you a beer afterwards.

/You are a god among insects.
//Which is a fairly easy accomplishment if you think about.
