    The right-wing agenda in NC is draconian, discriminatory, self-serving and detrimental to the safety, health and well-being of all citizens in NC.

    The belief of right-wingers is that anyone who needs any kind of support to make it through the day is a detriment to the state. (History is repeating itself.) Yet those with means have the support of public policy to make it through their days and for some reason that is different. Different on the theory that those of means will create jobs that in turn will contribute to the health and well-being of the economy. The theory is bogus and to prove it we only need to look at what has been the priority of the state during the NCGA’s long session. The right doesn’t care about helping to create jobs or assuring that the economy is healthy.

    The agenda of the right in NC is simply draconian, discriminatory, self-serving and detrimental to the safety and well-being of all citizens in NC.

    I disagree. Let us celebrate independence, creativity, and self reliance, traits which have made this nation great and reduce the dependance of our citizenry on the government. We need to move forward, remain positive, strive for energy independance, a strong economy and carry along those nattering nabobs of negativity who are trying to drag us backwards.
