I know this will offend many of my women friends, but what the NCGOP is doing to North Carolina is the political equivalent of raping our environment and our schools. And if I believed in hell, I would surely hope they find a warm welcome there. Both * I think it's time for me to take a vacation. If all the overwhelming evidence of the dangers of fracking isn't enough to make our legislators think twice, I can only conclude they don't care. They don't care what's going to happen to the people they are there to protect, and that disgusts me to the point I'm ready to walk away from this.
