Moral Monday Protests Have Been Silenced, But Not Defeated

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: moral mondays )

- 761 days ago -
In N.C., the legislators are afraid of their own citizens. So they passed some new restrictions. For example, the protests couldn't be loud enough to disrupt legislators. Naturally, the protestors duct taped their mouths and protested anyway. ^_-

I agree good for them. Keep it up. The rest of the citizens should be doing the same. When it comes time vote out these jerks.

Republicans muzzling free speech? Again? It must be because they're real people, not an abstract like money.

I love their use of duct tape. The universal "fixer".

Duct tape doesn't work! We need a referendum to force term limits, so nobody can be a career politician. They take the money but do nothing. other then what the big corporations want them to do. They forget it is us, the American taxpayer that pays their salary, not the big corporations. It is time they listened to their employer, which happens to be US, the American citizen.

Noted with thanks Ashley. The duct tape was an excellent idea, keep it up, and at election time make sure they are out of there.
