Let's bring a little sanity and respect back to North Carolina

"This is an actual photo (via WRAL) of Gov. McCrory being told that the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals just ruled that transgender people do in fact deserve equal rights protection. 

This is the face of a man who just found out that he cost his state billions in Title IX funding."

Looking kinda beat up isn't he? 

Wish I could say I was sorry about that. 

He has ruined lives with his selfish stance on health care in this state. Destroyed education. Has made some great strides in destroying our environment and would like to do more. Made North Carolina look like a state of fools and bigots. 

He is trying to ruin even more lives with HB2. 

He's allowed himself, I believe, to be manipulated by the money men who hold his strings while lining his own pockets. In my most humble opinion, he's arrogant. He's a liar. He's weak. He disgusts me.

There is one thing I can say for Pat McCrory. He and his ilk have moved me to finally stop just talking, whining and ranting about politics and actually DO something. So off I go most days now to help the amazing politically active Jerry and Pamela Williamson. They are a force, I mean a FORCE, behind Democrats in this county and in this entire state. I don't know how many years the Watauga County Annual Community Plant Sale has been going on - about a dozen, I think -  but it's an amazing event which raises money (a lot of money) for Watauga County Democrats. 

Check it out -

In case you're thinking "plant sale" as some little front yard venture that might bring in a couple hundred dollars - think again.

Here's a few pics I've been taking as we've been working - and the sale itself doesn't happen until June 11.

There are new plants arriving every day - but here's where we are now . . .

Selling plants, one at a time, to help elect local grassroots democrats and work our way up.

We want our state back!

The North Carolina you've been seeing and reading about in the news lately is NOT who we are!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, June 11.

7 A.M. - 2 P.M.

375 Old 421 S

Boone, NC

Sorry  -  No early sales.

All proceeds benefit the Watauga County Democratic Party.

I'll keep you posted, so continue watching!
