NC protesters risk arrest to highlight concerns about GOP (Leftist RATS have a cow)
News Observer ^ | 5/10/13 | Anne Blythe

RALEIGH — The historians, doctors, preachers, lawyers, raging grannies, students and others gathered around the second-floor fountain inside the Legislative Building and belted out “This Little Light of Mine” and other songs.

They were diverse in age and backgrounds but united in voice as part of a protest movement gaining numbers in recent weeks.

In the four months since North Carolina Republicans took control of both General Assembly chambers and the governor’s mansion, the lawmakers have proposed rapid and sweeping change to the state’s electoral processes, health care policies, welfare management and publicly-funded education systems.

The Republicans, some who emerged from a protest movement of their own – the tea party dissatisfied with the cost and influence of government – contend they’re doing the business of the people who voted them into office. They say their critics are simply bitter that their party no longer is in power.

Dr. Charles van der Horst is arrested during an act of civil disobedience condemning the Republican legislature's agenda Monday, May 5, 2013, at the North Carolina State Legislative Building.Twenty-seven members of the state chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People and other activists were arrested by Raleigh and General Assembly police. Seventeen were arrested last week in a similar demonstration.

Pimping - up front.

so much to do and so little time -

bravo Republicans we are behind you. Many people don’t realize it but not only did the Republicans take over state government in NC, but also took over many county governments. It is a grass roots endeavor that needs everyone to cheer on.

He’s not a shrink. His specialty is infectious disease, esp HIV. He is a buddy of our president and proudly displays a picture of the two of them here

van der Horst: “You realize these people aren’t pro-life, pro-North Carolinians,” van der Horst said. “They’re for themselves.”

He's not even from North Carolina. How does he know? Here'a clue....If NC elected these people to represent them, then that's what they want. Go back to where you came from and quit living off our research dollars, socialist scum.

He's got that "on the lowdown look, himself." Not surprising he's "buddies" with the president.

despite the invasion of all the Yankee liberals and homosexuals it still keeps it southern conservative side going.

These twisted dirt bags should go back to where they come from, instead of trying to change another state

Welcome to the club, NC! it's been happening in Wisconsin since 2010 when Republicans swept both houses and the Governorship.

Hold fast, hold firm and all will be well. We went from a $3 bil deficit to a $500 mil surplus in a few short years with no tax increases. The left has been going ape-$h!t all this time, along with predictions of gloom and doom, none of which have come to light.
