State Superintendent goes to court


Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson got her day in court. She is North Carolina's elected, but largely powerless education leader and she is trying to force Governor Perdue to put her back in charge of running the state's education policy. Atkinson sued Perdue and the State Board of Education in April. She contends that North Carolina voters elected her to the superintendent's post and Perdue's decision to name a chief executive officer for the public schools was illegal. She asked the courts to declare the scope of the state superintendent's constitutional powers.

put her in charge the day the Judicial System orders her Majesty to refund all the looted dollars back into the Educational Lottery Reserve fund. It will then be her challenge to find the money required to replenish the fund. And it will be her distatseful task to make the hard cuts the elected leader should have made. But then it will likely be time for another out of country working vacation.

Superintendent of Public Instruction

It appears Gov Perdue is making up her own rules, much like using the Czars at the national level.

...and people need to start standing up to them

Today's news contains a story about Obama and his henchmen trying to pressure Democratic senators who are balking at destroying our nation's healthcare system. It's pretty obvious that at all levels and in all issues, the screeching, screaming liberal agenda is being pushed through by threats and coercion. As one FORMER Obama supporter stated during the Chrysler deal, "It was like dealing with the mafia."

And conservatives don't push

And conservatives don't push things through with threats and coercion???? Close mindedness is what we've got here, and little common sense, yet again. I am forced to chuckle...

Chuckle all you want

Until your boys came to town, there was no question that senior, secured debt outweighed any unsecured claim. After the "negotiations," in which Oppenheimer was threatened with the government destroying their reputation if they fought the Chrysler settlement in court, senior debt holders have reason to feel uncomfortable. You will also note that the bond market has just about dried up over the past two months, too. Why would anyone buy paper that some bureaucrats in cheap suits can declare are worthless? And remember...the guy who described it as "dealing with the mafia" voted for YOUR comrade, too. He's just a lot smarter now. Get ready for your messiah to announce that we must raise taxes on those making UNDER $250k if we want to pay for his plan to destroy the healthcare system in this country. So go ahead and chuckle all you want too, because they've got their eyes on your wallet, too. (As long as you work, of course. If you're a totally non-productive bum, completely dependent upon the government for your existence, then they love you.)

WEll, seeing as Bev's

WEll, seeing as Bev's appointed has done such a "stellar" job, why don't we let the one we actually elected to the position give it a try.
