Gov. Pat McCrory ordered all U.S. and North Carolina flags at state facilities to be lowered to half-staff from sunrise to sunset on Sunday, December 7, 2014. This order is in observance of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day that marks the day when the U.S. entered World War II, and honors the lives and memory of those who defended our country on that fateful day in 1941. “Pearl Harbor presented the greatest challenge to our greatest generation. Pearl Harbor reminds us that the defense of our liberty comes at a great price. The sacrifice paid on December 7, 1941 will never be forgotten,” said Governor Pat McCrory.

As yet another week comes to an end, there has been no response nor updates from the administration of the City of Kinston, NC. The last press release was that Karr was out of service pending an additional medical evaluation. I unfortunately cannot advise any information on Canine Karr but I do want to share some breath taking facts about how amazing the citizens are. A petition was started last Saturday and now has a little less than 27,000 signatures. Statistically, that is more people supporting Karr than the population of the entire City of Kinston which is 21,641 as of 2013. I have been made aware of people calling and emailing the Director of Public Safety, the city manager, the city council, the Mayor, and Governor Pat McCrory. I have been contacted by several non profit organizations which have offered assistance from several states. I have also had several people offer donations to help. Again thank you to everyone who has been there for us and please keep Karr in your prayers.

The Fitzsimon File: Seven under-recognized bad decisions by the General Assembly By Chris Fitzsimon Most of the heated debate this fall about the decisions made by the folks in charge of the General Assembly for the last few years has focused on a handful of big issues, funding cuts to public schools, new restrictions on abortion services, lower benefits for unemployed workers, the refusal to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act, the rush to allow fracking for natural gas in North Carolina, and tax cuts that primarily benefited the wealthy and large corporations. Those were all big and controversial decisions that understandably garnered the biggest headlines when they were made and continue to dominate most of the discussion about the new, hard right direction in Raleigh. But there were also host of other, less publicized decisions made by the General Assembly and Governor Pat McCrory that directly affect people’s daily lives that have almost been forgotten in the blur of campaign commercials ...

I cannot stand Governor Pat McCrory and if you're a teacher in North Carolina, you should be ready to throw your sensible shoes at his head!!

I am so sick of the Rethug attacks against public education and teachers!! This makes NO SENSE!
The North Carolina state budget just became law this morning. It raises teacher pay and advances positive solutions for our state. Gov. Pat McCrory said, "This budget reflects a pragmatic and thoughtful approach to managing taxpayer dollars. It provides raises for our teachers, highway patrol officers, court employees and a cost of living increase for retirees and preserves Medicaid eligibility standards. This budget will continue to fuel North Carolina’s economic comeback.” NCGOP Chairman Claude Pope said, "Governor Pat McCrory, Speaker Thom Tillis, Senate Majority Leader Phil Berger, and the entire North Carolina General Assembly have shown tremendous leadership to craft and pass this budget. Governing is never easy, and they faced many challenges in the pursuit of common ground and achieving the best policies. I applaud everyone for their unwavering dedication to get the job done."

I'm sending this email to Governor Pat McCrory. Gov. McCrory, Please veto the NC budget proposal that takes away longevity for teachers and tries to pass itself off as the biggest pay raise in NC history. I have given 13 years of loyal service to the children of NC as a teacher. I am one of the first NC Teaching Fellows from that model and now defunct program and I continue to be an educator in NC. The respect that people once had for teachers is gone and we have been forced into a position where we must fight for fair pay and get painted as money grubbers by our elected representatives. I've endured years of wage stagnation while expectations and demands placed upon me have increased. I am continually reminded how I am a contracted employee and I would like to remind you and our elected officials that it is you (and your elected predecessors) who have been able to change the terms of the contract to suit your needs. The contract I signed provided me (and my wife, 13 years of teaching) with small annual . ...

Religious Rights in North Carolina Schools June 6, 2014 Bill Donohue comments on a bill that is close to being submitted to North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory for consideration: North Carolina is set to pass a bill that would ensure the religious liberty rights of school administrators, teachers, and students. If it is adopted, it would prove to be a useful model for every state. The bill unanimously passed the State Senate last year, and then passed 106-9 this week in the House. Because an amendment to the bill was passed in the House that allows school employees to "adopt a respectful posture," it was sent back to the Senate for approval. If it succeeds there, it will go to Governor McCrory for his signature. The ACLU is questioning why more religious liberty rights for students are needed. Evidently, when it comes to religious rights—unlike *** rights—it is possible to have too many. The bill is modeled on the rules outlined at the federal level. In 2003, under President George W. Bush, the Depart ...

Hemp products developed in the same community where hemp is farmed can create jobs from agriculture, transportation, processing, manufacturing and construction crews, creating an industry that “would be regionally sustainable and revive the local economy wherever it is grown,” according to Chris Conrad, author of Hemp for Health. • In NC “The Studies Act of 2006″ created an independent commission to study the beneficial uses of industrial hemp passed into law by Gov.

The NC Senate and House voted to lift the moratorium on fracking and the bill goes to Governor Pat McCrory this week. The bill will not allow cities to ban/limit fracking and does not require the companies to disclose the chemical content of the fracking fluid. In my rants about this I have realized a lot of people do not know what fracking is. Most people think it has something to do with earthquakes. There have been reports on the news about earthquakes related to fracking but that would be a blessing if that were the only side effect. Here is a simplification of fracking... “Fracking” is hydraulic fracturing, where natural gas is extracted from rocks beneath the surface by drilling into the ground and pumping a mixture of water and chemicals into the rocks to cause cracks, releasing the gases. The fluids released into the ground are some of the most harmful substances we can be exposed to and since they are being put into the ground, it contaminates the drinking water. These are some of the chemica ...
Spoke with governor Pat McCrory via telephone and told him I was opposed to the lifting of the moratorium due to the dangers of fracking. 🌍🌊

Since taking office New Jersey Governor Chris Christie has approved $4 billion in corporate tax incentives. New Jersey now has an $800 million budget deficit and has had its credit rating downgraded six times. In 2013 North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory changed the state’s individual income tax from a tiered tax with a top rate of 7.75%, to a flat rate of 5.75%. At the same time he reduced the corporate tax rate from 6.9% to 5%. North Carolina is now facing a $445 million budget deficit, and recently saw Moodys downgrade its bond rating. In 2012 and 2013 Kansas Governor Sam Brownback cut taxes, mainly for the state’s wealthiest citizens, by $1.1 billion. In April of this year, the state experienced a $92 million budget deficit. Further deficits are expected. So explain to me again how reducing taxes actually results in increased revenues.

N.C. is in the National News again, not just for the Voter Suppression Laws passed by the Republican led legislature, Governor Pat McCrory, and Tom Tillis, but for the first meeting held in 15 years to suppress protestors, and activists like the huge Moral Monday Marches all across the State. They can no longer carry signs of certain sizes, wording, etc., and protest areas around the State will be restricted, and God only knows what else the Republican Tea Party are going to do; jail protesters for longer periods of time, perhaps beat them, tase them, pepper spray them, who knows? They make their own rules against the thousands who come out to protest their draconian laws.

Wow! Reminds of N.C. Governor Pat McCrory sneaking in and out of Asheville, NC during Moog Fest. He knows he is doing a lot of harm and lacks the courage to be confronted. It's pathetic behavior.
Still freaking out about my foray into the local TV news last night. There was our Governor Pat McCrory plugging away hard for his buddy Thom Tillis. McCrory tells the "news" that he is voting for Tillis for US Senate. Yes, channel 14 considers this "news" and airs it every hour as a news story. I wrote a letter to channel 14 this morning, complaining about the obvious bias of the so-called news coverage, and their airing it every hour. It's unfair to the democratic candidate Kay Hagan, and to every voter who is fooled. What a total manipulation of the public by the "news." Please feel free to share.
