STOP Agenda 21 in NC

North Carolina refused to ratify the Constitution until there was a Bill of Rights to protect our freedoms, it is time for us to again stand for freedom. In the short session of the Legislature beginning on the 16th two bills will be introduced one to block Agenda 21 and the other to nullify the NDAA indefinite detention provisions.

This is were your help is needed to spread the word because 2/3 of the House will be need to approve the resolutions to bring them to the floor in the “short session” otherwise they will die in committee.The House leadership wants to wrap this session up quickly so they can get back out on the campaign trail and tell you what wonderful things they have accomplished and how they are looking out for your interest.

Well, its time to let them know that our interest include Agenda 21 and NDAA and we expect them continue the tradition laid out by the founders of our state and to stand up for our rights and for freedom.

They will not move unless we push them, so call, email and write, be courteous but be insistent, we need this done before they quit work for the year.

The Time for Action is Now, Not Tomorrow Today!

— William Kennedy, as posted in our discussion group

Rep. Glen Bradley is working on this now. Since this is a short session, the rules need to be changed so the the Agenda 21 bill can be brought to the floor. It will that 2/3 of the 120 House members to approve the resolution.

We are taking the fight right to the root, resolutions and bills are now prepared and ready for introduction on the May 12th opening of the Short Session, Stopping Agenda 21 in NC, and opposing the Indefinite Detention piece of the NDAA!

Occupy Wall Street’s May Day Protest in NYC

Occupy Wall Street held a “General Strike” to commemorate May Day in New York City. Led by Rage Against the Machine guitarist Tom Morello, the “Guitarmy” of a few thousand people noisily marched 28 blocks down Fifth Avenue toward Union Square Park.

Reason.tv was on the scene to speak with Morello, USMC Sgt. Shamar Thomas (who became a viral video sensation after screaming at NYPD officers during an OWS protest last year), rival zombie marchers, and a few self-described lefties who’ve just had it with President Obama.

What you’ll notice, is this looks nothing like a tea party. The comments being made be some of the people attending the march is rather revealing, even if we can recognize that they likely do not represent 99% of those who were there.
