But at the end of the day, the Film Industry Family and its supporters, if any, failed in their media driven effort to bully the Legislature and Governor to bend and kowtow to their wishes.
They obviously don't know how the legislative body works.
They obviously had very ineffective representation in the legislative halls, if any.
In the end, the scare and earth is ending mantra tactics did not work.
Aged? Let's see, I've been in Raleigh 3 times since the Legislature convened. 3 opportunities to stop by and communicate in person with Legislators I know by expressing my personal position on film incentives; which by the way, I've not done on this venue.
My comments have focused on an ineffective film industry showing and their failure to accept the limited funds available for these incentives.
I'll be up there on Wednesday; will you?
On a positive note, at least no one is trying to blame Bush.
The legislative process works if you understand how it works and are proactive.
It fails to work for bullies, slanderers, and beached whales who do nothing but spout off.
But keep up those same tactics. McCrory can anticipate 4 more years when he runs for re-election. Rouzer can expect a succesful voter turnout; and Hagen can expect to return to the triad in January if the best you people can do is avoid the issues and truth by taking pot shots at your truly.
And over the week-end, should you encounter a veteran or a currently serving member of the military, be certain to thank them for their service. It's only in the land of the free and home of the brave that you can freely make such comments without fear of arrest.
