MEC Chair Jim Womack: My Opponents Are Whiny "Libtards"

NC Mining and Energy Commission Chair Jim Womack recently called his opponents "whiney [sic] libtards" during an exchange in the comments section of The Sanford Herald. As shown in this entry on The Rant, a Lee County blog, Womack has a long history of aggressive and questionable comments online. An Independent Weekly article recently showed that Womack ran an anonymous blog while he was a sitting county commissioner, and the Sanford Herald ran an article about a Womack email suggesting running the Lee County manager over with a tank.

Now, Womack heads the MEC, where his comments should be seen as even more questionable since he is the "face" of fracking in the state. This also brings up the question, can Womack be trusted with this responsibility if he cannot better control himself? Does he see anyone who disagrees with him as a "libtard?" And, of course, note the irony that these comments came as he complained about being made out to look like a bully. You really need to check out The Rant's full write up.

The only real downside to this is that some people may choose their favorite slot machine and stay there the entire time, despite this new casino bill. If the casino does not have more than one of these machines, and it happens to be your favorite as well, you will get to play. On the other hand, it may be the perfect opportunity for you to choose another game, and you never know, you just might find a few new favorites along the way. Several years ago, there was a booming business of casino cruises in Florida. These cruises were not like your regular cruises. They were 5 hours trips and the only thing to do during this time was gamble and eat at the buffet provided. For a while, these online casino sites were very popular, but in time their popularity begin to wane. These businesses started to see a drop in visitors because the food was not that great, and once you ran out of money there was nothing else to do. Additionally, some people felt that once they tried it, they didn't really need to go again. This resulted in the rise of the new casino
