My, My, look at this. Waco has captured the Republican perspective in one very simple sentence. Let's look at this. Waco doesn't believe in destroying the fetus in the womb (" all life is sacred"), however, once you are here on the planet as a living human being, butchering the human being is OK! It appears that the life changes from "sacred" to "non sacred" only when living and breathing. So therefore, bring the child on to the planet, but once here, slowly and systematically starve the poor ones as well as other "undesirables" you don't agree with you to extinction. Thank you, Waco, you are a true Republican. You are certainly in the right camp with many other 'like thinkers.'

A standing army, however necessary it may be at some times, is always dangerous to the liberties of the people. Such power should be watched with a jealous eye." In the state of nature men may, as the patriarchs did, employ hired servants for the defence of their lives, liberties, and property; and they should pay them reasonable wages. Government was instituted for the purposes of common defence, and those who hold the reins of government have an equitable, natural right to an honorable support from the same principle that " the laborer is worthy of his hire." But then the same community which they serve ought to be the assessors of their pay. Governors have no right to seek and take what they please; by this, instead of being content with the station assigned them, that of honorable servants of the society, they would soon become absolute masters, despots, and tyrants. Hence, as a private man has a right to say what wages he will give in his private affairs, so has a community to determine what they will give and grant of their substance for the administration of public affairs. And, in both cases, more are ready to offer their service at the proposed and stipulated price than are able and willing to perform their duty.
In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society, to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights; when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights; the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property. If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation. The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty, it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift and voluntarily become a slave. Samuel Adams

In the context of history with slavery remaining as the economic backbone of the south for wealth gained on the backs of black people who were not allowed to share any part of the wealth, Samuel Adams should have prefaced this statement with "White Only" because his eloquent statement only applied to them.

Governor McCrory had to fire 5 teachers and deny supplies to children so he could have bullet proof windows? Gov McCrory didn't get the $250,000 bathroom upgrades even though he felt the bathrooms are not fancy enough for him to shit in. The negative publicity was too costly to his pompous self image. Possibly some internet gambling interests would be able upgrade his toilet so that the public doesn't recognize the smell coming from the governors mansion.

In addition Mr. McCrory needs another $63,000 to repair cracks in walls, clean up mold, new faucets for upstairs bathrooms and to replace old, faded, scratched counter tops with new marble ones. Oh and there is broken tiles in the floors. This would bring total renovation costs of the mansion to $230,000.00. According to McCrory this is not something a quick trip to Lowes will fix.

Mr. McCrory do you realize how much food and/or school supplies $230,000.00 would buy for the hungry in your state or how this amount might help our teachers who are paying out of pocket to educate our children? Sure you do. Do you care? No you don't. You are a dastard who shall get his due reward.

NC republikans , attempting to seize Charlotte's airport, created an airport commission and hired Jerry Orr at $211,000 per year to preside over the board without an airport. No problem with the money, just fire 7 more teachers and steal school operation money to pay for that. All this proves to me is that republikans cannot be trusted to govern.

Go Wildcats, "People lined up at the Oldham County Public Library in LaGrange, Ky., in October during an open enrollment for health coverage under the Affordable Care Act. Proponents of the health care law have held up Kentucky as a model. The state is far ahead of most in signing up people: More than 21,000 have enrolled in Medicaid under an expansion of that program encouraged by the law, and more than 5,000 have signed up for private plans through the state-run exchange, known as Kynect." Hope those 5000 can pay the bill.

Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured….. But not everyone must prove they are a citizen.
And now, any of those who refuse, or are unable to prove they are citizens will receive free insurance paid for by those who are forced to buy insurance because they are citizens.

The 5 teachers were incompetent and needed to be fired. If we went to all privately own schools, our children would not be jeopardize by incompetent government workers in the first place.

You would just waste it. The public school are not efficient and are a waste. Taxpayers need to quit losing money turn the school over to commercial management. They would better provide training and not political propaganda.

Had you attended public schools and paid attention, you would would have known to use the word owned rater than own.
Your illiteracy disqualifies your evaluation of the competency of others.

My bet is that you hatred for public schools originates in blaming others for your own lazy myopic stupidity.

If that happens, new NC law would allow idiots like you to strart schools and become teachers, without criminal background checks or any formal education. What could possible go wrong?
