Poverty in NC - we promote it, have we no shame?

http://www.ncpolicywatch.com/2014/11/12/helping-low-income-children-means-helping-their-families/

25% of NC children are in poverty. 40% of minority children are. Read this Policywatch article. Have we no shame? Will the GOP NCGA, bought and brought to us by Governor Art Pope take any actions to ameliorate this. And as it points out, to help the children, you have to help the parents! Like not killing unemployment insurance, like expanding Medicaid.

My view from the edge of my seat

Yesterday, while sitting amongst a room full of waiting patients and requisite drivers, I couldn't help noticing how riveted most were to the drivel offered on TV shows like "Good Morning America" and "Live with Kelly and Michael". Like the zombies depicted on "The Walking Dead", they croaked and grumbled their elation as they ignorantly gorged on the diversions du jour hyped gleefully by ratings crazed blond ladies and well dressed men on behalf of their corporate sponsors. The dreaded Colonoscopy I was waiting for, couldn't come soon enough!
