"Obama on Egypt: Interests over values"

He cancels a joint military exercise, but does not cut off aid. When a country is murdering  its citizens at this level, the least we should do is withhold aid. It can always be restored if conditions warrant.

NC Woes

North Carolinians Fear the End of a Middle Way

A summary of the damage:

 ".... The Republicans not only cut taxes and business regulations, as many had expected, but also allowed stricter regulations on abortion clinics, ended teacher tenure, blocked the expansion of Medicaid, cut unemployment benefits, removed obstacles to the death penalty, allowed concealed guns in bars and restaurants, and mandated the teaching of cursive writing. Just this week, Mr. McCrory signed into law strict voter identification requirements, prohibiting same-day registration and cutting early voting."  In addition, the legislature has taken action against environmental protection.

A sad State.
