Organize, agitate and spread the truth

Sen. Thom Goolsby restated his Chatham Journal op-ed headline “Moron Mondays” to a new agenda titled “Money Mondays,” [which you can read at his website, http://www.thomgoolsby.com].

Aha! The truth is out! He has to connect ‘money’ to Rev. Barber’s movement because he and his Republican cronies cannot, for the life of them, connect the movement with morality!

There is not a moral bone in their bodies. Talk about money. This legislature was, with the help of the “Citizens United” case, bought and paid for by corporate money.

There is another movement afoot to amend the Constitution to declare that corporations are not persons. Sixteen states have signed resolutions to amend. It takes 38 states to take it to Congress. It will take some time but it will be done (there is a petition online at MoveToAmend.org).

Make no mistake about it: Republicans are terrified of these grassroots movements that are growing and coming to a city near you soon. Moral Monday in Asheville on Aug. 5 at 5 p.m. Be there if you care!
