It's only Wednesday
Somewhere between scurrying from press conference to legislative committee meetings today, I thought that I should throw up a quick post about how absolutely crazy the North Carolina General Assembly has been this month. But to be quite honest, I didn't know where to begin. Then I decided to limit myself to the crazy that has been unleashed just this week. Keep in mind folks, it’s only Wednesday.
We have had a bill introduced declaring a state religion, more bills to curtailing early voting, the always popular voter ID, a bill to require prayer in public meetings, a head-scratching ban on co-ed dorms on university campuses, a requirement to get criminal background checks to qualify for public assistance, and even cuts (as opposed to the sane expansion) to our Medicaid system.
Wow. And those are just the ones off the top of my head - I know I'm missing a few doozies.
At least the weather is nice, so you can go to your neighborhood park and blow off some steam. Unless, of course, you want to go to one of these state parks or landmarks, slated to be closed to save some money.
It’s been that kind of week, folks. Stay tuned.
