Moral Mondays and Relentless Hypocrisy

NC demonstration against GOP lawmakers grows-News & Observer

"Rep. John Blust, a Republican from Guilford County, peeked in on the demonstration and had words for the organizers within earshot.
'People have the right to voice their opinions, but they don’t have the right to force them on others,' Blust said before walking away."

In the words of Seth and Amy from SNL...really?!? You and your Republican team in the General Assembly have been forcing your opinions, religious beliefs and disregard of scientific facts on others since you have been in power. Do you even listen to yourself? Well, I do -- and have been for years. My files are filled with notes of your obtuse, brutish and exasperating litanies. But, this one, as they say, takes the proverbial cake.

You do not have the right to force NC women to ask your permission for birth control or to access their constitutional right to abortion services. You do not have the right to force unemployed and struggling North Carolinians to accept less unemployment for a shorter duration of time. You do not have the right to withhold health coverage from 500,000 uninsured North Carolinians. And, there is so much more.

Insults and injuries are coming fast at the people of NC. In my opinion, you are forcing your opinions on us. On Moral Mondays, We the People come to tell you that it is unacceptable.

I'll remember that quote ...

... the next time I get a flood of mass mailed racist political smear campaign postcards and robocalls from one of Pope's or the Koch brother's organizations in the next election.
