NC Budget

SEX is back, at ‪#‎NCGA‬!!

Sex Education, that is. They just can't keep their hands off of it.

Now that I have your attention, a new addition to SB279 would allow anyone who calls themselves an expert to approve sex ed curricula-meaning ANYTHING could be taught. It could be written by James Dobson's Focus on the Family or your Great Aunt Rose.

Once again, teach lies and call it education. This opens the door to Abstinence Only, or any kind of erroneous information a school or district finds their parents are comfortable with.

Pay to play Pat

Even with the leading "Deputy Assistant", the title "Governor" is wholly inappropriate for Pat McCrory. He doesn't govern; all he does is perpetually campaign.

There's the daily stream of spin, lies and propaganda, but perhaps the most disgusting of Pat's behaviors is his near constant fundraising. He knows the people with the cash, and he'll do most anything to get them to give a lot of that cash to him.

Creating a budget for the state of North Carolina is one of the most important acts of governing.

Two letters worth reading from N&O today

Note about Roz Savitt's letter: she is a former lobbyist and was a great one. I am watching Tillis' campaign commercial where he brags about "balancing the state's budget." Guess he expects North Carolina voters don't know the Legislature is required to balance the budget, no matter which party is in power. Senator Kay Hagan helped produce balanced state budgets, but I don;t think Democrats turned out budgets that we later learned to be phantom budgets. This years budget was only revealed to be unbalanced after the legislature adjourned so folks like Speaker Tillis could go home to campaign for higher office.

Speaker Tillis' commercial offends my sensibilities about truthfulness.
