You gotta watch this - but probably not if you're at work.

According to a tip from the Outer Banks, the NC Association of Realtors has been desperately searching for the Lost Colony of Dare County realtors who may have been negatively affected by the Transfer Tax that has been successfully implemented in Dare County.

NCAR and, Wake County realtors in particular, have been bombarding their Dare County colleagues with requests to write letters saying the Transfer Tax has hurt their business. All of the realtors contacted by the source say the Transfer Tax has had no impact on their business.

Meanwhile, the NC Realtors PAC, has failed to account for $127,600 in in-kind contributions that it did not report for two years. In March 2007 the NC Realtors PAC submitted revised summaries for 2005 and 2006 to the State Board of Elections but failed to submit revised data files itemizing the newly reported in-kind contributions made over the two year period. SBOE informed the PAC of this deficiency June 29th. As of writing the revised data files have not been posted at the SBOE website.

A Raleigh emergency room physician wrote a column in the News and Observer today that covers a topic I’ve been planning to write about as well: Health care reform. Here’s my version, outlined in a series of principles and action steps.

Principle: Basic health care is a basic right for every human being.
Action: The General Assembly should pass an amendment to the NC Constitution that puts health care on par with public education as a right for all North Carolina citizens.

Principle: Our national government is broken and incapable of taking the bold, imaginative steps required:
Action: North Carolina should lead the nation in a new approach to providing health care services to all.

Yearly Kos is an annual event bringing bloggers together from across the nation for a weekend of organizing, activism, networking, and progressive infrastructure building. The deadline to buy tickets is July 14 for the August 2-5 convention.

I've been asked to moderate the NC "caucus" and co-lead a regional gathering as well, so I'm asking the BlueNC community. Who's coming to Yearly Kos? You can respond here or use the BlueNC mail.

Lots more about Yearly Kos after the jump.
