    GREENESBORO new ordinance

    While i was OCing today i took a gander at the newspaper, and i saw this....

    http://www.news-record.com/content/2..._curfew?ref=nf

    Not sure about yall...But this drives me crazy.... The exceptions...Married....what....
    would if you got caught and you said you were "Exercising First Amendment rights of assembly" do they have to let you go....you know they wont.
    I think this is STUPID and POINTLESS. I think a bunch of under aged people need to protest this downtown after 11pm on January 1st

    SNIP:GREENSBORO — The city adopted a curfew Tuesday night prohibiting anyone under 18 from being downtown without an adult, as well as stronger ordinances against loitering.

    I don't like it, but I don't see anything illegal about it.

    Also, watch fair use. You should copy over only a piece of the article and link the rest.

    I wonder what being married and a minor has to do with anything... Triangle Town Center mall in Raleigh did something similar. Banning anyone under 18 on the weekends unless with a parent or unless going to work. I view it as a good thing and a bad thing. Usually, high school kids aren't buying anything in the mall and may be causing trouble. But at the same time, they might think "well, we can't go to the mall, so let's start trouble"

    I haven't shopped at Triangle Town Center since the ban because I got tired of people harassing me for my ID. I obviously look older than 18. Bleh, I'm not a fan of shopping malls anyways.

    OK, so let me get this straight...

    A 22 year old shoots two other adults in Greensboro outside a club late at night--a club that DOESN'T allow anyone inside who is under 18.

    Greensboro passes a law that prohibits under 18's from being out late at night.

    And this new law is supposed to help, HOW?...

    Is the ENTIRE city council of Greensboro on crack or what?
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    “What we have on the books is not working,” Mayor Bill Knight said. “Something is wrong and we have to fix it. This is a step forward.”

    Well more laws always works out great right? Right?!

    I don't bother with pragmatic statistics while discussing my constitutional rights. The issue is far less complex, to me. Free men should be able to act like free men.

    The first amendment exception is what makes it constitutional.

    A 22 year old shoots four people so they ban 17 year olds. Sounds like NC logic.

    Depends on which kind of BBQ you like, eastern or western NC style. If eastern (thinner, vinegar based sauce), then yes, feel free to bitch. If western (thicker, sweeter junk), then no....you gave up that right and should be making plans to move back to some yankee state by this weekend

    The only thing I like the Memphis/Western NC BBQ sauce on is Ribs and chicken! Sweet Baby Rays is awesome! Open Pit BBQ sauce is good too. I'm going to miss buying sauces in the NC section at Kroger. Never been a fan of SC style mustard sauce.

    I like many forms of BBQ.

    Is it the E. NC style that has Red Cole Slaw on the side? MMMMMM....

    I've only seen the green cole slaw out here. I think the red is from central NC.

    I think you might have some serious problems if your cole slaw is red...

    Really though, I don't know the difference, other than of course red cabbage.

    lol no that is actually called "Lexington Style" coleslaw. Supposedly it was created in.....well.....you can guess that part. Mostly served in around Lexington/ Concord/ Western NC areas...there's a place in Rutherfordton that serves it and about the best I've had.
    It's really just coleslaw with ketchup or tomato sauce added, or used as a base sauce instead or mayo.

    Also, my last post was a tongue-in-cheek comment. I've actually never met a BBQ plate I haven't liked, try as I may. I'm in love with all of it- NC, Memphis/ KC, Texas brisket, pretty much everything. My all time favorite combines W and E NC. I like the pulled pork (preferably pulled straight from the hog) with the vinegar based mopping sauces. I kinda feel sorry for a good hunk of pork chopped up into confetti but I certainly won't refuse it

    If you want something a little different, head on down to Columbia, SC and stop in at Maurice's BBQ where they specialize in a mustard based pulled pork BBQ....mmmmm.......

    I grew up eating western NC BBQ and I can tell you that the dipping sauce is made from water and vinegar with a little ketchup, molasses or brown sugar and red pepper flakes. It is not thick at all, as it is mostly water, and is often not put on the meat unless you want it (the meat speaks for itself). The slaw is made with finely chopped cabbage, a little green and red bell pepper (mainly to add a little color) marinated for a few days in the same basic concoction as the dipping sauce and is usually enough to season the meat if you are making a sandwich. Where I grew up, we called that type of slaw "fish camp slaw" because it was common at most local seafood resturants. If you can find George's Original Barbeque Sauce and add just enough molasses to top off the bottle you will have you some good dipping sauce.
