About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

North Carolina I-95 NO $$$---my support of the NBA and the NCAA

There are 182 miles of I-95 in North Carolina. I drive through there many times per year and have stopped spending money there. I will not buy gas, eat there or spend the night. As a person seeking equality for all it's the least I can do to support the opponents of HB2. Here's the math and the money tax on rooms along I-95 is 9%----Fuel 20 gallons at 2 = 40 x 2 ---both ways ---$80 ---lodging $75 x 2 ---$150-----meals 30 x 2 ---60. It all adds up and if the sports world is doing their part, then I must do mine. Don't worry about bathroom breaks, there are rest areas every 50 miles.
