    It's not going to be easy.  When we have a state senator calling constituents "morons" because they disagree with his bigoted ideas, it's a sign of the deep shit we're in.

    Further, the NC democratic party organization is in real disarray... as I'm sure you know.  Has been for years as they avoided truly working for better democrats.

    •  That is the part that we can change (11+ / 0-)

      making the state Democratic party stronger.  Thank you!

    •  Calling protesters "outside agitators" (9+ / 0-)

      I can't believe that Republican legislators are blaming Moral Mondays on "outsiders"--even though, as WRAL TV has pointed out, 98% of those arrested living in NC.

      Don't these guys know the resonance of that phrase?

      Don't they know that's what anti civil rights southerners claimed all civil rights workers were in the 1950s and 1960s?

        to know or care.  Our best hope is that their policies will also impact their base and get they booted in 2014.  Assholes one and all.

      •  Oh they know quite well that this is a home grown (0+ / 0-)

        movement and they are just beginning to run a little scared.  Need to keep the pressure up on "Moral Mondays", and increase the participation.  A few of us from the Asheville area KOS folks are getting plans together for a group trip to Raleigh.

        I can't wait to go, as both my wife and I are seeing our state drift and morph into an unrecognizable backward place to live that we never thought we would ever see happen in our lifetime.
