HR 3058 update/Amendment to State Constitution

Hat Tip to Cindi

On Thursday, the House of Representatives voted on amending HR 3058 to include with holding federal monies from those who abuse eminent domain. It passed. Link===> http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2005/roll350.xml
I've also put it on the sidebar where it will stay for the next few days.

Here are a list of the NC Reps who voted against: Robin Hayes, GK Butterfield, Bob Etheridge, Brad Miller, David Price, and you guessed it, Melvin Watt. Send them an e-mail letting them know your displeasure and, better yet, if you know people in their districts, send them an e-mail or call them and let then know what their representative has been up to lately.

Also, according to a conversation one of our readers, Cindi, had with Chris Mears <>, efforts could be made in persuading NC Senators to amend our State Constitution to strengthen private property rights. Contact leaders on BOTH sides of the aisle.


And now look at this further abomination on the owners of the property in New London: (sorry, haven't gotten the hang of the link thing)

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
