Gov. Pat McCrory on Friday signed a bill that sailed unanimously through the General Assembly in a little more than a week to counter a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that could have prevented people from suing over groundwater contamination in Asheville and Camp Lejeune -
I just signed a petition to Pat McCrory, Governor, Thom Tillis, Speaker, and Phil Berger, Senator: Assure that Duke Energy and its shareholders pay to clean up ALL the toxic coal ash dumps in North Carolina, and don't target low-income communities for this waste disposal.
Last week, Gov. Pat McCrory signed the Energy Modernization Act, which lifts the moratorium on fracking, allowing gas companies to frack in North Carolina as early as next year. The N.C. Senate proposed in its budget to explore shale-gas reserves in Davie, Rockingham, Stokes and Yadkin counties, possibly placing Forsyth County in the middle of an industry that has repeatedly brought with it crime, heavy traffic, water contamination and even earthquakes. McCrory and supporters have claimed fracking will spur economic development. So far, though, it appears that North Carolina citizens may be spending rather than making money. The N.C. Senate wants to spend nearly $1 million of taxpayer money to explore our gas deposits for the gas industry, throwing in an extra $100,000 for marketing. Sometimes you have to spend money to make money, but spending precious taxpayer dollars seems wasteful when, in 2013, the top 10 gas-producing companies in the U.S. made $1.2 trillion. To try to attract a trillion-dollar indu ...
A well written synopsis by Cindy Humbertson .I wonder if John McCain truly understands the gravity of the choice he made. When I see an event like the standoff at the Bundy Ranch, the disaster in LasVegas, candidates like Joni Ernst, Todd Akin, and Richard Murdoch, I see Sarah Palin telling people not retreat but "reload". When I see a Gadsden flag, I see sedition. When I see Sam Brownback, Rick Scott, Mary Fallin, and Pat McCrory, I see Sarah Palin. And when I see Sarah Palin, I see John McCain handing her the "red meat" to feed the rabid right. When McCain made this choice, he unlocked the door to the asylum. He should be ashamed of what he has wrought. Most people, had they made such a monumental mistake would at least have the good taste to sit down and shut up. His mental capacity has been questioned by me since the first time I heard her speak, and my opinion of him has declined accordingly. Though he served this country, and suffered greatly as a POW, he is certainly no hero. Never have the words . ...

Pete's tip of the day: Irene Nolan's new blog. A summer of waiting for important decisions Friday 06 June 2014 at 3:47 pm. Some of us will be sweating this summer -- and not just because of the weather. There are decisions or actions due on any number of issues that will have profound effects on the future of not just Hatteras but also Ocracoke. There are two court opinions we're waiting for, a decision on the long-term solution for bridging the S-curves and north Rodanthe, and maybe finally some word on the "emergency" beach nourishment in that area. Here a quick look at all of these issues. CHAPA LAWSUIT AGAINST DOI AND NPS The Cape Hatteras Preservation Alliance sued the Department of Interior and the National Park Service in February of 2012 to stop the Park Service's off-road vehicle plan and final rule for the Cape Hatteras National Seashore. Defenders of Wildlife and the National Parks Conservation Association, represented by the Southern Environmental Law Center, were allowed as defendant-interven ...

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 ...
Want to know what will be injected into the ground when a fracking well goes up next door to you? Well, here you go: you don't know what fracking (hydraulic fracturing) is, please ask me. That's what messaging is for! Additionally, if you happen to be near Cherokee this weekend, Thom Tillis, Pat McCrory, & company will be at the NC Republican convention--you know, if you feel a need to go tell them how you really feel about fracking and what they've been doing to public education.
Great, they are going to be testing for fracking in the next county over. Gov. Pat McCrory is an *** for signing it. Ugh!! Stupid people.

FACT SHEET What’s wrong with SL2014-4 (S786), North Carolina’s 2014 fracking bill Thursday, June 5, 2014 Yesterday, Gov. Pat McCrory signed SL2014-4, Energy Modernization Act (S786). The Act breaks the state legislature’s 2012 and 2013 promises to review a finished package of rules before voting whether to allow fracking permits to issue in North Carolina. Instead, following a truncated legislative review period in early 2015, the rules will go into effect by default, and permits will begin to issue sometime in early to mid-2015. Beyond breaking the legislature’s promise, the Act fails to address the most significant risks that shale gas development poses to our health, communities, and the environment. SL2014-4 does not address the risks that matter most Compulsory pooling, in which a natural gas driller can force a landowner to allow development of their mineral estate against their will. The Act punts on this issue, asking for more studies [§25], where it should have explicitly prohibited comp ...

An open letter to Pat McCrory; Dear Scumbag, I begin with such harsh language because I already understand that you have no concern for what the people in this State really think, or want. So nothing I or anyone else says could possibly effect you. therefore, it is not my intention to dissuade you from hearing the will of the people or consider what is really best for the land in NC on Fracking. That would be futile. It is my profound hope, however, that the next time you look in a mirror, and that split second where you layer over your conscience and spin yourself that you're actually doing good for the State, before your aristocratic, untouchable, indignantly royal sense of self takes over, that you will here this; "I am a scumbag" even just for that brief nanosecond, and that you have to spend just an extra few seconds talking yourself out of it. Because you are a vapid, immoral corporate house boy, you will go too far and even your supporters will eventually abandon you and no spin or money in the wo ...

From my friend Mayor Jim Taylor of Matthews: 18 hours ago We need help in getting the word out to members of the GA. Please let them know that towns needs to be able to maintain local control of what our communities look and feel. We have a vested interest in our communities and those in Raleigh are not the best equipped to know better then those here locally. The large lobby groups are spending lots of $$$ to take that ability away from those closest to the people, Town & City Councils. Please help get the word out. This will come up this week. In Matthews we need help from NC Senators Jeff Tarte and Robert A Rucho . We may also need help from Gov. Pat McCrory. (In Huntersville, we need Charles Jeter as well.)

Disaster Aid The U.S. Small Business Administration and Gov. Pat McCrory issued disaster declarations Thursday for Eastern North Carolina counties hit by tornadoes last month. The declarations enable recovery aid for businesses and homeowners. People can start applying for aid on Friday. Eight tornadoes raked Eastern North Carolina on April 25, and one in Chowan County killed an 11-month-old boy. More than 325 homes and buildings were damaged or destroyed by the storms, with Beaufort County bearing the brunt of the damage. The disaster declarations cover Beaufort, Pasquotank and Perquimans counties, as well as any adjacent counties. The SBA declaration means homeowners can apply for low-interest federal loans of up to $240,000 to repair or replace their homes and some personal belongings. Renters can apply for up to $40,000 to replace personal belongings, and business owners can seek up to $2 million for business property losses. McCrory's disaster declaration will enable anyone who doesn't qualify for an ...

By Victor Li A new law in Georgia will require some applicants for food stamps and welfare benefits to pass drug tests. Reuters reports that Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed the legislation Tuesday. The law allows government officials to test applicants if they have “reasonable suspicion” that they use drugs. The state can temporarily revoke benefits to someone who flunks a drug test, although the law allows children of that person to receive benefits from another adult. Through a spokesman, Deal said that the law was necessary because drugs prevent people from finding and keeping jobs. “If some, however, reject treatment and instead choose a lifestyle that renders them unemployable, taxpayers shouldn't have to subsidize that,” Brian Robinson told Reuters. Meanwhile, opponents of the law have stated that they will challenge it in court. Debbie Seagraves, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Georgia, called the law “shameful” and argued that it violated the Fourth Amendmen ...

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.

"But he’s dismissive of claims the Republican-controlled General Assembly and Gov.

Last night I disregarded my usual good judgment, and watched the nightly commercial news. There was our NC Governor Pat McCrory, looking at the devastation caused by yesterdays tornados. Homes were scattered in pieces all around him, and people cried at the loss of everything they owned. I will quote the governor here, when he was asked if the people could qualify for federal or state disaster relief. "I hope they don't qualify. That would mean it wasn't that bad." All I could think was, how heartless and cruel he sounds, as if the suffering of people who have lost their homes, all their possessions, and in some cases suffered serious injuries, is not important to him. He doesn't care about you and me at all. The working class people of North Carolina just don't matter to him. So, if you or someone you know says they are "not interested in politics" please forward this to them. Dear friends, it can be you next time, in a position of vulnerability. You could lose your job, or suffer a major illness, or hav ...

Dan River, North Carolina, Coal Ash Spill On February 2nd, more than 80 tons of coal ash, a highly toxic byproduct of coal burned for electricity, leaked out of a Duke Energy containment pond and into the Dan River. The spill, the third largest of its kind in U.S. history, ultimately coated 70 miles of the river in North Carolina and south central Virginia. Coal ash contains toxic chemicals and heavy metals including lead, selenium, mercury and arsenic; though these are threats to the environment, to ground water and to human health and wildlife, coal ash isn't classified as hazardous and isn't federally regulated. On March 20th, North Carolina regulators cited Duke for illegally pumping 61 million gallons of coal ash wastewater into the Cape Fear River. Who's responsible Duke Energy. America's biggest electricity provider and the former employer of North Carolina Governor, Pat McCrory, Duke is currently valued at nearly $50 billion, making whatever fines it incurs for polluting easily absorbed.

You can thank Senator Phil Berger and Gov Pat McCrory for supporting a tax plan that gave huge tax cuts to profitable corporations headquartered in NC. In turn - those corporations did not create new jobs. So how does this benefit us? "nine corporations headquartered in North Carolina paid an average overall corporate income tax rate of just 3.7 percent, well below the state’s 6.9 percent statutory rate at the time, on more than $51 billion in combined profits."

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Gov. Pat McCrory says he's going to stay out of the debate on whether his former employer Duke Energy should be able to pass the costs of closing North Carolina's coal ash ponds on to consumers. The governor told reporters Tuesday he wants to keep politics out of the decision-making on financial aspects of handling more than 30 ponds at 14 Duke Energy power plants. He says that's best left to the state Utilities Commission. Duke Energy's CEO has said the company will pay for the coal ash spill cleanup in the Dan River but suggested customers pay the cost of closing other ponds. Charlotte Rep. Ruth Samuelson co-chairs the Environmental Review Commission. Samuelson says it makes sense to her for both shareholders and ratepayers to pay for the closings.
The three causes of what LOOKS like abandonment by NC non-custodial parents: 1) No ability to put their hands on $5000-$8000 to hire an attorney to rectify what cost the other parent $0 to do 2) Fear of the family courts. Why spend $20,000+ to get exactly what you are going to get if you don't show up? 3) Parental Alienation by a malicious parent or family court judge who allows one parent to move a child many states away and then tells the child that the other parent doesn't want to see him/her and plays the victim role for attention and sympathy.

~ Today's Worst Person in the World: Gov. Pat McCrory ~ Another Republican governor is being investigated for corrupt practices. Imagine that. Who would have guessed it? This time it's *** bag Pat McCrory of North Carolina. The U.S. Justice Department has opened a criminal investigation into the state environmental agency tasked with regulating Duke Energy after a coal ash spill left the Dan River so polluted that people were advised to avoid contact with the water. The probe will open a window into the relationship that state regulators have with Duke Energy, the country’s largest electricity provider, and a company that also was a 28-year employer of Gov. Pat McCrory. Fascism is alive and well in America. After all, not only did the governor work for Duke Energy for some 28 years before becoming an elected official of the state, but he knowingly accepted campaign contributions from the corrupt energy giant in return for future favors. One of those favors was the rather light $99,111 settlement re ...

So a good friend and homie just posted something that people in NC Needs to see...smh Alana 'Molly Sue': Sooo I just yelled at the TV listening to Governor Pat McCrory (NC) interview with Wolf Blitzer. While he was speaking, the N.C. Dept. of Transportation released a statement saying that all abandoned cars will be towed and the owners will be responsible for tracking down their cars and paying for towing fees. The Governor said, well Wolf, somebody has to pay for this and it might as well be the car owners. Wolf said but what about the people in their cars who run out of gas, or the pregnant woman with her child in the back seat or the people who have to deal with car accidents, do they have to pay? (SMH.our Govenor did not sound compassionate at all! At least Governor Deal of Georgia gave everyone two days to get their cars)
So what is the point Gov. Pat McCrory declaring a state of emergency a day before the storm if All of the businesses/corporations are going to require everyone go to work anyway...Goes to show you that most businesses are more worried about making a few dollars then the over all well being of their employees.

* Schools and Districts to Recognize Drivers and Love the Bus in February The wheels on the bus could not go “round and round” without the bus drivers who navigate North Carolina’s roads to make sure students get to and from school safely each day. That is why State Superintendent June Atkinson is encouraging parents, teachers, school leaders and students to recognize these drivers during the national Love the Bus month in February. In addition, Gov. Pat McCrory has proclaimed Feb. 10-14 as “School Bus Driver Appreciation Week” in North Carolina and he urges all school communities and citizens to support the Love the Bus program and to recognize the excellence of the state’s school bus drivers and their record of safety.

STORM, BRINGING DEADLY ICE AND SNOW, SLAMS 'US' SOUTH-EAST : Feb 13, 2014, 01.55 AM IST ATLANTA: A deadly winter storm brought heavy snow, freezing rain and a possibly historic accumulation of ice to the south eastern United States on Wednesday, causing hundreds of thousands of power outages and treacherous driving conditions, meteorologists said. The worsening storm stretched from eastern Texasto the Carolinas, and is likely to reach the Middle Atlantic states by late Wednesday, National Weather Service meteorologist Roger Edwards said. Power outages spread rapidly as temperatures dropped. More than 330,000 homes and businesses were without power in the US southeaston Wednesday afternoon as a severe snow and ice storm battered the region, local power companies said. Some customers may have to wait up to a week for power to be restored, said Georgia Power spokeswoman Amy Fink.

This was sent to me via email from Brent Jackson's office Thank you for contacting Sen. Jackson’s office with your concerns regarding the recently announced plan to raise teacher salaries to national standards. Sen. Jackson is committed to supporting policies that promote an effective and efficient public education system. Listening to feedback from constituents is an important part of fulfilling that commitment. The recently announced plan to increase entry and early career teacher pay includes built-in raises for all teachers in their first 10 years of teaching – which ensures more experienced teachers will not make less than those who have worked fewer years. Attached is a chart showing the proposed changes to base teacher pay including longevity. Teachers become eligible for longevity pay for the first time during their tenth year of teaching, so they will receive a pay increase in their tenth year. Experienced teachers also have the opportunity to earn an additional $5,000 over the next four ye . ...

The governor of Tennessee was giving an interview in which he announced that his state will now offer FREE COMMUNIY COLLEGE for all citizens of Tennessee! They also have approval for new teacher pay increases! While I am happy for these wonderful advances for Tennessee, it also makes me embarrassed and sad for North Carolina. When did we start being a second class state? Oh yeah, it was when Art Pope and Pat McCrory bought our state government. We must take them out power before our state becomes a third world country.

According to the campaign watchdog group Democracy North Carolina, the company's PAC and its executives donated $332,836 to Gov. Pat McCrory's 2008 and 2012 campaigns and have donated more to other legislative candidates and independent spending groups, such as the Republican Governor's Association. McCrory and several of his administration's top officials, including Commerce Secretary Sharon Decker, are former Duke executives.

If you haven't seen it, ask your high - paid staff to get you a copy. Take it to church with you this morning, sir. Pray about it.
