  •  Definitely a hostile takeover n/t (4+ / 0-)

    Just because the government keeps a record of real property transfers, it doesn't mean that the government wants to confiscate your home.

    •  Many NC people are in shock over the attack (6+ / 0-)

      on voting rights.  It has been more publicized than most of the other outrages (although true, it has been hard to keep up).  Comments on the MoveOn petition (still up, by the way, close to 10,000 signers) range from bewilderment--"What is happening?  People, we need to pray!" to rage--"The Repub legislature & Gov. McCrory are acting like blind dogs in a meathouse who are absolutely starved.  They are frantically pulling this state back to 1865."  Some strive to be polite and reasonable, appeal to history, democratic principles, some sound like beaten victims, "Please, stop!"   But all in all, bubbling with anger.  Now, how to channel and focus it into action.  That is the challenge.  State Democratic Party website is a joke.  It could be the Junior League--actually, theirs is probably better.
