Why you should march this Saturday

hk-2This morning’s edition of the Weekly Briefing spells out eight reasons — four “big picture” and four, “practical and down to earth” — why you should march in this Saturday’s Moral March on Raleigh.

Here’s one:

“North Carolina is Ground Zero in the ideological contest over the nation’s future –America may be politically polarized at this moment in its history, but at some point in the foreseeable future, a combination of demographic, economic and, perhaps even environmental changes is going to help break the logjam. And while there are some encouraging indications that things will break in a progressive direction – the rapid progress in LGBT equality is perhaps the most obvious sign – this is anything but a sure thing, especially given the overwhelming financial resources at the disposal of the forces of reaction. Right now, no state in the union better exemplifies this sharp divide than deeply purple North Carolina. There is simply no more urgent time or better place to join the battle.”

See ya’ Saturday at 9:30!

    I would find an analysis of HKonJ’s 14 point agenda (and various goals under each heading) more persuasive and a more appropriate measure to determine if this annual event is an effective use of resources and energy.

    This event has been going on for about 7 years or so. What has been accomplished in that time — even with Democrats in power?

    Some of the sub-goals appear to have been met, but many haven’t. An analysis with some attempt at measuring of success (partial or otherwise) for this event is in order.

    The major problem with this “Moral March” is the fact that there are too many issues being addressed, with some having little to nothing to with each other. In my opinion it should be limited to a maximum of 3 issues, and all 3 must have a link to the other. Once those are met to expectation, then a total of 3 more should be brought to light.

    As of right now, this movement appears to have become nothing more than a bunch of people with little to do with their time make nothing but noise all in the name of……….Making noise.
