We have this genital mutilation and sterilization of children going on right here in eastern North Carolina at ECU Health. That is a disgrace. The NC legislature needs to ban this.

No surprise here at all!
George Soros funds ALOT of different things, people included.
When George Soros called Trump a "con man" at a meeting in Davos, I knew Trump was the man!
Why are they(Elites) so scared of Trump!

John: Even if polls were in favor of "Wokeness" and Superintendents did make an admiral defense of its supposed benefits, it is the elected purpose of our Representatives to act in accordance with how they campaigned that they would represent us, and, moreover, it is up to us to hold them accountable.

That is the democratic contract of this Representative Republic.

This is one of many issues that Tillis has let us down on. That is why the Beaufort County Republican Executive Committee is one of over 30 which have so far passed resolutions of censure against Tillis, and why the 3rd District Republican Executive Committee is almost certain to do so Saturday. Party activists are VERY unhappy with Tillis and his propensities to act like a Democrat on a wide range of issues.

Woke public school curriculums will be key topics in other GOP primaries in 2024. Do those three school board Republicans want to stay on the side of their own party in that primary? I would think they would, as the opposite course would likely be politically fatal.

In the Governor's primary, the two top candidates will be Lt. Governor Mark Robinson and State Treasurer Dale Folwell. Both are publicly opposed to woke curriculums in public school. For Robinson, it is his top issue, and he fought very hard and very publicly against the woke social studies curriculum at the state BOE. Folwell also is on the record opposed to that very curriculum. Facing GOP primary voters, are school board members going to want to be on the same side as their top gubenatorial candidates or on the same side as Roy Cooper and his state BOE appointees?

Then there is the presidential primary, where the two top contenders, Donald Trump and Ron deSantis are both opposed to woke public school curriculums. DeSantis is making that a major part of his campaign, and the company SAVVAS that is inbolved here is one rejected in FLorida for being woke. Do candidates running in a 2024 Republican primary want to be on the same side as their top presidential candidates or on the same side as Biden's Education Department?

These issues will clearly be in the forefront for voters in 2024 primaries in races beyond just the school board.

What we have is a school superintendant trying to cozy up to what the education establishment wants to further his own career when he is ready to move up to a bigger system and throwing the schhol board members under the bus to do it. He cares nothing that following his proposal (and everyone knows his "committee" is just a smokescreen) would be fatal to the political careers of the school board members. To him, that is just collateral damage.

Polls show that voters do not want wokeness in public schools, which is why this is a big issue in other races. It is what elected a full Republican slate in Virginia two years ago.

Hopefully school board members are smarter than the superintendant thinks they are.

The heartbeat bill is definitely a must have! Once there is a heartbeat it's a life in my opinion.
As far as the medical marijuana goes, I must agree with it as far as medical purposes.
The reason being if you have cancer or some other strong medical condition, doctors will pump you with so many pain pills and/or morphine that you feel as though you are suffering from all the pain medication they are filling you with.
I have had very close family members with cancer and watching them suffer with the cancer was hard enough, let alone all the pain medication. I think medical marijuana has it's purpose in the medical field. Do I agree with people walking around smoking it everywhere?NO! But I do think that doctors can do wonders with it to help people who are suffering greatly from different medical issues.
This pain medication to me in my opinion is very bad and has caused a lot of people great harm over the years. Will some people abuse marijuana other than for medical purposes, probably yes but no worse than the pain medication they abuse now.
I'm sure some will disagree with me and that's find. This is America and everyone so far can have their own opinion.
I have seen to many family members and friends suffer from cancer and in my opinion medical marijuana helped much better through their suffering than ALL the pain medication they were pumped with and I stick by that.
As far as gambling goes, not a fan really.
I think it's just another means to take people's money and keep them poor.

Another issue of huge concern to conservatives is the Obamacare Medicaid expansion, which RINOs are trying to sell us out to the special interests on. So far the House is standing firm against it, with Keith Kidwell one of those helping hold the line. Sellout mania is terrbie in the Senate, and one of the ringleaders of it is RINO Jim Perry wno (mis)represents Beaufort County in the Senate. Both RINO legislative "leaders" PHil Berger in the Senate and Tim Moore in the House are all-in on selling out to Roy Cooper, the Democrats, and the special interests on Obamacare Medicaid expansion. Republicans in the General Assembly need new leadership who will work for Republican principles, not for Democrats and special interests, and this district needs a new state senator who is not a whore to the special interests like Perry is.
