NC Moral Mondays now has a theme song!

We Are Not For Sale!


More than 2500 people rally outside the North Carolina State Legislative Building on Halifax Mall Monday, June 24, 2013, prior to an act of civil disobedience opposing the Republican legislature's agenda. About 120 activists were arrested by General Assembly and Raleigh police. About 600 have been arrested over the course of 8 "Moral Monday" demonstrations.

U.S. Rep. David Price, a Democrat from Chapel Hill, was among the crowd outside the Legislative Building. “This is beyond politics as usual,” Price said. “It’s so extreme, so drastic and so threatening to so many people.”

Price said what is happening in North Carolina is more extreme than when tea party politicians were swept into office at the federal level and pushed a similar agenda. “They created plenty of problems,” Price said. “But in the U.S. Congress, they didn’t have unchecked power.”

I have friends who have been attending the protests. Hubby and one of our sons are planning to go next Monday...but not get arrested.

The guy who is behind all the money that put this group of Repubs in office is Art Pope--who is now the Budget Director
under the Governor. He is also the primary source of funds for Civitas, (referred to in the article) and the song that I posted
that mentions the mansion on Granville Dr. is his house (3324 Granville Drive, Raleigh, NC 27609)
