    “Have you no sense of decency sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?”

    Anyone or group of people who would rather make fun of a child than take the opportunity to mentor and/or teach a child has no right to cut a state budget in such a way that will result in the lose of jobs for teachers.

    It is time to stop the insanity and take back the people’s house, via election process, for the purpose of protecting the health, well-being and future of all citizens of NC.

    These disingenuous politicians don’t deserve the honor of serving the fine people of NC. It just isn’t in them to do so.
