    Not Telling
  1. If you already own MS Word either 2019, 2016, or 2013 you have a great PDF editor at your disposal. Just open the PDF as you would any Word document, give the program a few minutes to convert the PDF, and then edit away.

  3. Bernie winning a lot of primaries but few delegates, could change after NY.
  4. I got it from ABC news but I think it is a hoax.
  5. When you buy a gun, you know it's intended purpose just like when you buy a toaster. Under US law it is impossible to sue someone for the item doing exactly what it was designed to do. The problem is not the manufacturer, it is the lawmakers who refuse to stop people who should not ever own a gun from getting them. If all states had universal background checks, and make the buyer affirm he or she is the actual buyer, as does PA, and take away the license of gun dealers who sales/inventory cannot be reconciled, the number of guns getting into the wrong hands would be lowered.
  6. NC is paying for this law. "The Tennessee House has passed legislation allowing mental health counselors to refuse service to LGBT patients on religious grounds, making Tennessee the latest state to pass anti-LGBT measures this year. This comes as the governors of New York, Washington, Vermont and Minnesota have all banned state officials from making non-essential trips to Mississippi, as part of the growing backlash against Mississippi’s sweeping new anti-LGBT law. New York has also banned all non-essential travel to North Carolina, in response to its passage of its anti-LGBT law, known as the bathroom bill."
  7. NBA cancels All-Star game in hate state. "Charlotte, NC — NBA Commissioner Adam Silver held a press conference today, announcing that Charlotte, North Carolina will no longer be hosting the 2017 All-Star game due to the state’s recent passing of the anti-LGBT law HB2. “With this new law in place, Charlotte currently does not have any anti-discrimination protection in place, something that would be vital for a large event such as the All-Star Game,” Silver told reporters. “We are giving the state of North Carolina 30 days to repeal this law or they can expect the 2017 All-Star game to be held elsewhere. I want to make it clear that the NBA will not stand for this type of intolerance and hate.”
  9. Only if the gun is defective.
  10. Lots of states, especially SC with the present governor, are bending over backwards to attract new business without passing hate laws. So YES, the NC law will have an affect on business decisions. It will one of the first states to be eliminated.
  11. HB2 is a hate law, plain and simple. It removes the right of employees to sue for discrimination in NC courts, prevents counties and cities from passing anti discrimation laws. It is the old South where the N-word has been replaced by transgender, gay and homosexual. It is all about oppression.
  12. "The Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act, more commonly known as HB2 or “the bathroom bill,” was intended primarily to overturn a Charlotte ordinance that sought to prevent discrimination against LGBT residents. But a provision tucked away beneath the law’s headline-inducing elements eliminates an avenue by which sacked workers could pursue their claims in state court. Since 1977, the state’s Equal Employment Practices Act has articulated a state public policy to safeguard the rights of all workers to hold employment without discrimination based on race, religion, age, sex or other factors, although sexual orientation was never among them. North Carolina is an “at-will” employment state, meaning that employers can sack employees for any reason or no reason at all—unless the discharge would violate some tenet of public policy. (For instance, companies can’t fire workers for refusing a boss’s order to commit a crime.) Since the state’s courts began recognizing the claim more than 30 years ago, lawyers have used the language of EEPA to bring suits for wrongful discharge based on a violation of public policy when workers believed they’d been discriminated against. But HB2 amends the EEPA to provide that it does not create, and shall not be construed to create or support, a statutory or common law private right of action, and no person may bring any civil action based upon the public policy expressed in it. “Here’s the analogy I give,” said Mathew Flatow, an employment law attorney with SeiferFlatow in Charlotte. “It would be like if the Legislature said it’s against the law to drive over 65, but if you do, there will be no repercussions, and we won’t give you a ticket or anything like that. A lot of people would probably consistently drive over 65 in that scenario. The Legislature has said companies shouldn’t discriminate, but if you do, we won’t do anything about it.” Read more:
  13. This attempted effort effort to promote one religion over other religions clearly will raise a different kind of ire from the business community than the hate laws in NC and MS, nevertheless, corporations really do not like it when the government is intrusive. It is not a good sign for things to follow. Too many other states that have not enacted crazy laws, and that is where the businesses will make major investments.
  14. The law removes the right of an employee to sue his employer for discrimination (age, race, religion, color, sex) in any state court.
  15. Not yet passed, however if passed, economically it will hurt the state plus it is unnecessary.
