Board of Education member wants to teach that America is Great

And we can thank Myers Park Pat for this jewel in the crown:

Several months ago in our discussion about standards, I made a comment from the table about the foundation of our social studies curriculum being anchored in the thought and the premise that America is a great nation.

I really think that a document or a statement underlining that fact that our teachers teaching in the public schools should be making every effort to help our students understand our history as it impacts the socioeconomics, diversity, economic development and future development of this country. It’s important that we undergird that with the idea that we live in a tremendously prosperous land.

One in five school-age children in NC go hungry, and Amy (Bannister) White knows this because she runs a food pantry:

Will Josh Stein continue his fight to keep state employee from having OAH hearing?

On May 18, 2017 Administrative Law Judge Julian Mann, III sent notice to me and NC Assistant AG Joseph Finarelli a 'Notice of Contested Case and Assignment'.

This was in response to my request to have a hearing to contest that I was improperly reclassified by Governor McCrory as 'managerial exempt' even though I managed no people, no programs, never met anyone from the McCrory administration, and, after I was fired, the McCrory administration did not ask me to turn over a single file or document.

Josh Stein continues to wage legal battle against vested state employee's right to a hearing

Attorney General Josh Stein continues to use state tax dollars to wage legal battle to deny vested state employee his right to a hearing at OAH

I am a former state employee with 'career status'.

North Carolina's Sore Loser

A trend on Twitter this morning is based on a New York Times piece titled, "North Carolina's Sore Loser." Names have been left off to protect the innocent.

Dems & Repubs BOTH voted this guy out. Remember that Trumpzoids. NC went Trump but kicked McCrory to the curb

Gov. Pat McCrory, rejected by the voters, is engaging in a shameless attack on the electoral system.

Since GOP voter suppression didn't work, Repub Gov refuses to cede office =>

The GOP's passion for unconstitutional laws

A good find from Watauga Watch.

Struck down, all or in part

2011 law requiring physicians to perform ultrasounds on women seeking abortions and describe the images
2011 law capping enrollment in a pre-kindergarten program
2011 state House and Senate district maps
2011 move to cut off funding for a Planned Parenthood affiliate
2012 constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage, which voters approved
2013 attempt to phase out teacher tenure for public school teachers already vested in the program
2013 Wake County school board redistricting plan
2013 elections law overhaul including requiring voter ID and reducing early voting
2014 creation of a Coal Ash Management Commission and other panels
2015 Wake County commissioners redistricting plan
2015 law to establish retention elections for sitting N.C. Supreme Court justices

We're waiting.

The two men at the top of the Republican ticket continue to stand by Donald Trump through thick and thin. Pat McCrory and Richard Burr both have endorsed Trump's candidacy, and show no signs of repudiating him, even after his reckless call for a "Second Amendment" solution to stop Hillary Clinton.

Neither man has the courage to disavow Donald Trump. They are betting their political futures that there are enough North Carolina voters who share their bigoted and hateful view of America.

The great unraveling

It would be a mistake to say we have "given" Republicans all the rope they want. Truth be told, they have taken it, pure and simple. In their reckless lust for power, they have crossed every boundary of decency and fairness. In pursuit of domination, they have thrown aside integrity, local control, and personal freedom. They have behaved like bulls in a china shop, stomping adversaries into oblivion, just because they could.
