Revised 3/21/13- In addition to the seized four year-old's lunch, Leftists running the universities, and Agenda 21 running rampant, North Carolina now dropped its plan to give striped drivers licences to illegals.
At first, I was thinking 'About time they stopped giving drivers licenses to people who can't legally be here', then I kept on reading-
-Now they will just give them regular drivers licenses:
Hat tip to The Blaze:
I was stationed in Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in the mid - 80's. Having been born and raised in New Jersey, I quickly learned to appreciate the slower pace of life, the conservative nature of the people, and especially the beaches and coastal towns of the area.
For most people, the impression of North Carolina is one of a very conservative state. Sure, the liquor laws are strangely restricted - a holdover from the days of enforced temperance and Prohibition, but it is hard to imagine this state turning into a place in which governmental intrusions are fast becoming commonplace.
North Carolina was the scene of the infamous case of the the government official seizing 4 year-old's lunch that had been packed by her mother:
The University of North Carolina, with its now-sadly ironic name of "Tarheels", is an example of the inmates running the asylum:
Agenda 21 is close to thriving in the Tarheel State:
And now, in reference to the links at top, we have the case of a man who runs a naturalist camp/school being forced to shut down because, well, his buildings are not built to code:
"After graduating from Appalachian State University more than two decades ago, Eustace Conway decided to take a crack at Henry Thoreau’s philosophy of getting back to nature – that is, of living “deliberately.”
“I live in a much different way and I’m glad for it,” Conway told Fox 8 WGHP-TV.
He purchased some land outside Boone, N.C., built up his property, and has been using his “nature school” to teach hundreds of people how to live closer to nature ever since.......
But in 2012, citing safety regulations, county officials decided they need to shut down the noted naturalist’s school.
“Basically, I’m living like the American heritage pattern of all of our ancestors and the modern world isn’t. They don’t know how to accept me,” Conway said.
The county issued Conway a cease and desist order, saying his property wasn’t up to code.
“This is supposed to be the land of the free,” he said, “government is supposed to help people [and] protect their individual liberties and freedom. That’s not what’s happening here.”
“My gosh,” he added, “This is the country that I pledge allegiance to?”
Problem is, to meet said standards, Conway’s “nature school” would cease to be, well, natural. Also, the county’s demands are a little strange considering that after all this time (26 years) and several inspections, it has suddenly decided his property is a hazard."
