    So the residents of that state are not all in agreement with the attempt by their representatives to legislate morality. Good for them for their peaceful and persistent marches. I hope they follow that with thoughtful voting in the coming election cycles...they must be certain not to forget or to be swayed by false but persuasive campaign ads.

    I live in NC and I can assure you....many MANY of us do not agree with the agenda being pushed upon us by a fringe. I didn't vote in any of the people currently 'serving' (as if they really serve anyone but themselves) and have no plans to vote for them in the next election. I'm not really sure how so many of these fools got elected to begin with....of course, this IS the state that reelected Jesse Helms for 30 years.

    when did that become a prerequisite for having an opinion or declaring what other states should or should not be doing here?

    Missed the point completely. My point was that if you lived here, you'd know exactly what they're doing, and 'getting rid of the freeloaders' is a simplistic and not entirely accurate description. Half a billion dollars in cuts to education (get rid of those freeloading teacher's assistants, don't you know), authorization of fracking to begin in 2014 (well done, way to **** up our water supply), and continued subsidies for their buddies in agribusiness (apparently they don't count as freeloaders). This state is going down the tubes, very quickly. I have lived here 30 years and have seen the decline.

    of course the people who authorize fracking drink different water. The big lie about fracking messing up the environment.

    Of course, the topic is the Moral Monday Protests, NOT fracking.

    These protests are an exellent example of the citizens of the state making their voices heard in the capital. It will be interesting to see if the legislators listen, they didn't in Wisconsin or Michigan.

    McCrory not familiar with all of bill he's to sign

    RALEIGH, N.C.-North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory says he will sign into law a Republican-backed bill making sweeping changes to how and when citizens can vote even though he has not seen one of its key provisions.

    McCrory praised the bill in a media conference Friday, saying it will restore faith in elections by requiring voters to present government-issued identification at the polls. ...
    ... McCrory said the system had potential for abuse.

    "There is plenty of opportunity for voter registration-online, offline, through many methods," McCrory said. "I thought that was a fair system before and I think it is a fair system now."

    North Carolina has never allowed voters to register online, though they can download a form and print it out.
    The GOP-backed elections bill tightens restrictions on registration, requiring voters to submit a paper form by mail or in person at least 25 days in advance of a primary or election.

    McCrory was then asked specifically about the provision ending pre-registration by those under 18.

    "I don't know enough, I'm sorry, I haven't seen that part of the bill," McCrory replied....
