Occupy Monday Agenda Would Cost $7 Billion To Fund

The Occupy Monday movement led by Defacto leader of the NC Democrats have been making a lot of demands. Bigger government intrusion, more spending, and desires for items without a thought to the budget North Carolina has to work with.

Barber describes these demands as his “Five Point Moral Framework”. Don’t be drinking anything when you read the list below.

Secure pro-labor, anti-poverty policies that ensure economic sustainability
Provide well-funded public education for all
Promote healthcare for all, including affordable access, the expansion of Medicaid, women’s health and environmental justice in every community
Address the inequalities in the criminal justice system and ensure equality under the law for every person regardless of race, class, creed, documentation or sexual preference
Protect and expand voting rights, immigrant rights, women’s rights, LGBT rights and equal protection under the law
In a nutshell, the same demands made by Occupy Wall Street. Broad and vague with absolutely no specifics. That is a feature, not a bug in the design.

Rev. Barber’s demands would effectively erase all strides made to close the budget shortfall left behind by former Goveror Perdue. The demands add up to roughly $7 billion according to Senator Phil Berger’s office. See the statement to the press below: Continue reading

Overthrowing The Champions Of Mediocrity

Our children are under assault. I’m not just talking about the every growing list of scandals plaguing our schools, that if they were happening in any other institution, the media would be all over it. This assault is also not just from the various experiments in teaching, or the ridiculous over-reactions we’ve seen recently over pastries that look like they were bitten into the shape of a gun.

It’s an assault of stripping our children’s joy in achievement, of having friends and excelling in academics and in sports. It’s the underlying push for political correctness to be demonstrated at in all areas of school life. It’s the seemingly never-ending list of championing of mediocrity in the name of ‘fairness':

No in school birthday parties.

No hugging your friends.

A trophy for just playing.

Kids told not to brag or be happy when they receive a good grade – even in college.

No recognition of outstanding achievement.

No cheering at graduation.

The message here is conform. Be like your everyone else, don’t step out of line. Don’t strive, don’t win. Winning is not the goal here, just showing up is. After all, it’s only fair. Continue reading

Will Wake County School Board Turn Nanny?

Schools all over the country rely on fundraising drives to support their sports teams, music activities and more. Many schools opt to raise money through candy sales. Wake County schools are no different, but the School Health Advisory Council has issued a recommendation to the Wake County school board to end the practice.

It is worth noting that the School Health Advisory Council is housed under the Advocates for Health In Action, which has been a large advocate for First Lady Michelle Obama’s ‘Let’s Move’ initiative.

ABC 11 reports: Continue reading
