In case you missed it this weekend, the Charlotte Observer’s Sunday editorial took House Speaker Thom Tillis to task for kicking peaceful protestors off the second floor of the Legislative Building last Thursday. The first paragraph says it all.

The special N.C. legislative session that convened Thursday didn’t feature another sneaky, post-midnight vote on controversial legislation, making a mockery of transparency in government and the public’s right to know. But House Speaker Thom Tillis still managed to shunt the public aside last week with another ill-advised move.

    The people’s housing is becoming a hostile environment for the people. Interesting that a government of the people and by the people has become a government of out of control politicians who won’t allow the people to make a peaceful statement on public policy.

    What are the politicians afraid of?

    toc-tic, toc-tic – turning back the clock.
