The NC Senate today passed Senate Bill 10, which gives Brick Tamland, I mean DAG McCrory free reign to eliminate any opposition on key boards and commissions such as the Utilities Commission,Industrial Commission, and the Coastal Resources Commission among several others.
What does this mean? It means we will see environmental protections erased for developers,(on a side note the NCGA listened in rapture to a "Scientific" lecture given by a real estate agent today, I'm not kidding.), work place safety will be eroded, and coincidentally Duke Power, Brick's former employer asked for a 10% hike today, which they will now get without opposition.
NC has become an ALEC wet dream over night. In the NC Republican lexicon,"conservatism" means the total domination of society by a corporate aristocracy and to maintain it by deception, inequality, prejudice, innuendo, and a complete bastardization of the democratic process.
