    If transparency is so important to you, why did you create and pass the HB2 bill and these ridiculous restrictions you’re trying to put on the duly elected Governor of our state in the “dark of night?” You didn’t let people know you were doing these things, even within the legislator. You are simply trying to hold on to your power and these kind of manipulations will come back to bite you. The electorate is not fooled by your rhetoric.

    No matter what it takes, repeal HB-2. I am a lifelong Conservative but I don’t give a hoot about transgender stuff. McCrory did not get re-elected for one reason-HB-2. It is an unenforcable law that has cost the state millions. Do you carry your birth certificate with you? Find someone who does! Throw out and forget HB-2. This thing will cost Republican seats.

    You are very misguided if you think the majority of North Carolinians support HB2. They don’t, and NC will lose millions in revenue if it is not repealed. Gov. Cooper has offered a perfectly good compromise, we suggest you take it. Compromise is not a sin. It will be remembered on election day.


    We suggest you read the comments posted on this very account.

    Dear Mr Berger – I can’t even begin to express how deeply disappointed – no, disgusted – I am in your lack of leadership in the NC legislature. HB2 is the absolute worst legislation ever. It is bad for our LGBT citizens, for their friends and family, for NC business, for the economy. It is just bad news all the way around, and it has made us the laughing stock of the USA. We need to repeal HB2 post haste. People will keep protesting against it until you do. If you’re a leader, act like one and do something good for your state, not just your bigoted Republican party. The future of the state, and your political career, hangs in the balance.

    Dear Senator Berger,

    I am definitely for the repeal of HB2 in NC. It is such a worthless bill. I also resent your party’s refusal to work with Roy Cooper. Talk about hurting our state you are doing it.

    Please find a way to prevent President Trump from putting Mr. Brannon on our National Security committee instead of qualified experts. I am terrified with the decisions President Trump is making so far. I do not like living with such fear. I am 67 years old and have never had a President frighten me like this before.

    Sincerely,

    Sharon Church

    Dear Mr. Berger,

    I am one of your constituents. I vote across party lines and have voted for plenty of Republicans and for plenty of Democrats. I do NOT support moving too quickly to repeal ObamaCare without FIRST a solid vetted AGREED plan and without then disrupting care for our 19 million citizens. Secondly, please, I implore you to work with your colleagues to get President-Elect Trump to stop being so inflammatory and, instead, show that he can work WITH the world and not against. Trump is scaring so many of us. We rely on YOU to work to control and manage your new Commander-in-Chief via your and your colleagues’ influence. Plus, of course, he needs to work with our Intelligence Community. Trump is making premature, not fully vetted, heated, concerning, and dangerous comments using Twitter. It does not make sense for a leader of the Free World to behave in this capacity. Please, Mr. Berger, use your senior influence and work to calm things down and ensure we work together across our government(s) — nation/internation/state/federal/local….We are counting on you.


    Sincere regards,

    Mrs. Cindy Woloszyn

    By doing all you can to destroy anything positive about North Carolina, you make our state only more unlivable. You’re destroying any progress in the State by your HB2 and your unconscionable attempt to make Governor Cooper an ineffective governor. It’s pathetic that the likes of you is in our General Assemble! You’re a shameful Senator. Please improve our State by resigning. You’re only there by Gerrymandering!
  • commented 2016-12-22 07:52:37 -0500
    The failure of HB2 to be fully repealed – the failure starts & ends with you. Your Republican group did not keep your word – you did not effectively work for the $ of the special session. You broke your word with your request for a moratorium. The HYPOCRISY, sir, is on you!
  • commented 2016-12-21 23:49:48 -0500
    Disgusting, repugnant, weak, despicable, hateful, you name it. These descriptives all apply to what you did today with your “moratorium” idea as it relates to hb2. Add that to last weeks power grab bs that you and your good ole boy Republican buddies did and you have achieved the status of the most reviled, embarrassing bunch of self-absorbed bullies I have ever had the displeasure to bear witness to. You and your cronies days are numbered. Just as the people of this great state did when they kicked McCrory to the curb, they will do to you when it comes your time for re-election. You make me absolutely ashamed to be from NC, but you will ultimately lose. So thoroughly and utterly disgusted with you and your ilk.

    Shame on you. The way Phil Cooper has been treated is an embarrassment. Bad enough what Pat McCrory has done to this state; Phil Cooper deserves a chance to set us straight. This is a democracy. You’re making it into a dictatorship.
  • commented 2016-12-16 18:18:15 -0500
    Today you have built a wall between the two branches of government-legislative and Executive. Instead of compromising my party-Republicans- turned their backs on the new governor. As a Republican I am ashamed and now say it was time for “Pat” to go and now it’s time for my party and the Democrats to rid themselves of Mr. Berger. Yes, the tide is rising against Mr. Berger. I and other Republicans are ready for new leadership that will work together for the prosperity of NC. As a teacher my party has turned their backs on public education and I warned “Pat” that it would catch up with him. Mr. Berger, it’s starting to catch up with you. Again, as a Republican I am ashamed.

    Hi there,

    I am a native North Carolinian and registered Independent. I have voted for both Republicans and Democrats in the past. Today, I am writing to express my dismay at the plan to add two new State Supreme Court seats during a special session. The voters have spoken: the race between Morgan and Edmunds was not even close!! As a politician, it is your job to listen to us voters, even if you don’t like or agree with what you hear. Please do the right thing, and choose NOT to play partisan politics in this holiday season. North Carolina has received enough bad press on the national stage in the last year; let’s leave that behind us now and in 2017.


    Best,

    M. B.

    Sir,


    I will keep this brief, because you don’t want to know everything that I am thinking. However, I am compelled to tell you that if I understand the amendments correctly, they are worse than the bigoted, hateful, harmful original bill. First, you and most of the rest of the Republicans in the General Assembly betrayed your constituents by stripping them of employment protections, access to courts for just remedy to abuses/wrongful actions by employers, and hindering their ability to gain a living wage by area. Now, you are requiring transgender persons to obtain and carry a special ID for access to bathrooms. That is just insane. What are you going to support next? Tattoos on their arms with their state ids, so we know who you intend to cull from the gene pool first?


    It is time for this travesty to end. Repeal HB2. The entire thing needs to go. Repeal the original HB2 and forget the amendments.


    Respectfully,


    John Stauble

    NC energy policy needs to shift toward fact based initiatives and away from liberal feel good energy policies that solve nothing. 1st, fracking to secure natural gas, which is astoundingly abundant, safely and openly will provide fuel to run power plants and industry along with vehicles. There is plenty and we need only plan the conversion. Unlike liberal electric car and solar stupidity converting to natural gas will markedly reduce CO2 emissions.

    Unlike solar and electric car stupidity gas is cheap and a real solution. $70,000 leafs that use electric from coal/oil fired plants cause more CO2 than a gasoline engine ever would! Plain stupid! Plus who is gonna pay for the $20,000 battery replacement in 10 yrs of use? Taxpayer subsidies! Special stupid! But the owner feels like they saved the planet even though their purchase is worse for the planet than a gas engine.

    Solar is a major loser when compared to gas. Solar is expensive and exists only because of subsidies. The expensive cells will have to be replaced due to wear and oh say destruction by hurricanes. Solar is a money pit and will never be a major cheap sustainable source like gas. The money for solar would better be spent on grid improvement, saving lost energy, and conversion to gas. Fracking can be done safely and legislated to demand it while giving NC a windfall cheap energy source to lead the world in how to significantly reduce carbon and provide energy security.


    Imagine, no more coal or oil run power plants. No coal ash ponds threatening rivers far more than fracking could ever! Imagine trade deficits dropping like a rock as we import no oil for industry and power plants. Imagine riding a bus or driving a car that gets great mileage because natural gas has 10 times the energy as the best battery vehicle can deliver.


    Imagine a real solution to CO2 injection into the atmosphere. Liberals say republicans deny warming, fact is we deny the liberal and democrat “feel good” stupidity. Go ahead libs, put 6 sq feet of solar panels on your car…see how far that whooping 2hp generated will move your 140 hp engine! Good luck running industry and power plants on solar. Special stupid! Keep driving that leaf charged by a CO2 emitting oil or coal plant, at least smarten up and buy a hybrid until you get a car conversion kit and natural gas stations become the norm in NC.

    Stay the course Senator. HB2 simply is common sense. It also reveals the reason for the vast ethical divide between liberals & conservatives in all matters.


    Conservatives believe ethically based values and traditions that strengthen individuals, preserve and protect our communities are paramount to individual rights. Liberals/dems believe individual rights are paramount and have no regard for the destruction their ideology does to individuals, families and communities. These liberal iconoclasts enjoy spreading aids, drug addiction, debauchery, alcohol abuse and their kind commit most crimes of all types. They mean to destroy the values of prudence and temperance and pervert children to their hedonistic self absorbed me me me lifestyle train wreck.


    They can cancel events and not move jobs to NC and we will be the better for it. The poison refusing to come and pollute our state is a blessing in disguise! We don’t want to end up like Virginia, overrun with the depraved to the point felons get to vote for their favorite democrat. Not Here! Stay the Course!

    Mr Berger, I read the N&O article (today Apr 21) about your feelings regarding HB2. I realized you need to hear from people who oppose the “Bathroom” bill. I am a nurse, and have been a nurse since 1975. My role required me to serve all patients regardless of their personal beliefs – and I did.

    Re HB2 – please consult with medical professionals to better understand the transgender condition. A recent N&O letter to the editor (by Dr. Kane) and a recent letter to Governor McCrory (signed by many Endocrinologists, from many facilities) would be good places to begin.

    Also, please realize the consequences of this bill – a woman, who is transitioning to become a man, will be legally required to visit the women’s restroom – in spite of masculine clothing and appearance (including perhaps a beard, baldness, musculature). A recent visit by gender neutral models in Raleigh NC helped illustrate this situation. Women & children will be using a restroom alongside apparent men who are anatomically women (ie birth certificate criteria). This could enable predator males to enter without altering their clothing to “fit in” . . .

    It is an unintended and potentially harmful effect of this bill.

    What should we do, when we see an apparent male use the restroom alongside us? Think of children who do not understand, think of parents of those children. Think of the Transgender community – this group of people without a record of harassment.

    Please open your mind to the consequences, please ask others for information, if this is not enough.

    Thank you,

    Sally Williford (RN, MSN) – of Cary NC

    Your logic and argument regarding HB-2 is not only illogical, but only shows what supposedly our state leaders really understand about 2016 issues. It is really a sad sad state of affairs.


    Your positions are an embarrassment around the world for this state!
  • commented 2016-04-09 07:30:26 -0400
    Shame on you. One more Republican hypocrite. I suppose you are all for smaller government so long as control stops with you and no more local than that. Limit control that keeps citizens safe from polluters in order to save money for your big business supporters but make sure you have something to say about what goes on in our bedrooms and bodies. Promulgate costly solutions (laws) looking for problems that don’t exist. Do what you can to make certain those who become unemployed have to really struggle in order to benefit from the money they have contributed to that system.

    Arrogance and shortsightedness seem to be the Republican values of the day. You people are simply obdurate. My Republican father must be rolling over in his grave.

    From: C/O Kenneth Prontaut

    To: Asst. Superintendent Mark Carver

    Re: Unlawful Workplace Harassment/Hostile Work Environment Issues


    Mr. Carver, I wish to file a complaint on behalf of myself and other Officers at Caswell Correctional Center. Around June of 2015, I became aware of an assault that took place on Officer Kanoy by Officer Tucker on A Night Shift. During this assault Officer Tucker allegedly struck Officer Kanoy around the face and eyes with her clenched fist leaving bruising and bending his glasses. I suggested to Kanoy that he file assault charges against Tucker. He declined and stated he would find another job. Shortly after, he resigned his position.

    In a separate incident, on 9-8-15, while waiting for line staff to show for lineup, an agent for Colonial Life arrived to attempt to encourage us to buy life insurance. I stated to Officer Fitzgerald that maybe he should take out some life insurance coverage. I meant this as a joke as Officer Fitzgerald had been involved in a minor collision on his motorcycle. Officer Fitzgerald replied “Prontaut, keep my name out of your mouth. I’m about to put something on you that I can’t take back”. This was stated in a clearly threatening manner. I told him I was just kidding and he repeated the same statements previously quoted. His mannerisms were clearly threatening. Officer’s Whittington and Pressley among others witnessed the incident. I will no longer speak with or associate myself with Officer Fitzgerald and do not wish to be assigned duty posts with him. On other occasions he has presented himself as rude and arrogant to me.

    Most employees simply quit and find other jobs to avoid these occurrences. I will likely be the next to resign. It is a shame people cannot be civil with each other in this day and time.

    Please consider this an official complaint to which I would like an official response.

    Sincerely, C/O Kenneth L Prontaut
