Who among us truly cares enough to reverse this malaise that I predict will continue to fester into our largest unwelcome worry for this new generation of children, rising up, if immediate action to remedy this impossible course of utter inaction is not reclaimed from apathy?
The talk in Raleigh is that there may be bipartisan support to override any veto by Democratic Socialist Governor Roy Cooper to continue his course of inaction toward the proper education of our nubile masses. In any event, this Resolution, should it be ratified, may help in some small measure to grease those proverbial skids to accomplish what is right and just ... which is just part of what I do as a county commissioner, understanding always well that "all politics is local"
At the Beaufort County Commissioners' March general meeting
, on March 1, 2021, the county commissioners will be given an opportunity to make their reprsentative voices for their constituents known on this issue by showing their resolve by ratifying the succeeding document.
Resolution Demanding that North Carolina Fully Open All Public Schools, Ensuring Every Child Has Access to
the United States of America and the Great State of North Carolina have now for an approximate year been in the vicious grip of Covid 19, which has strangled our Small Businesses and inhibited OUR Public Education, and;
Covid 19 can be a deadly disease, which was foisted upon our People by originating strains of the virus from Wuhan, China, a Communist regime, who then would not allow the immediate investigation of THEIR virus by other more responsible nations' scientists; however, after some months of intense scrutiny and effort by the previous Trump administration, much worthwhile data was discovered. Due to the determined resolve by the previous administration, through Operation Warp Speed, a vaccine was: Rightly discovered, approved by trials, and brought to the People in record speed; thus delivering one million vaccines a day into the arms of Americans, and;
Covid 19, by responsive scientific scrutiny during the Trump Administration, was determined to be more virally dangerous to our older citizenry, especially those suffering from comorbidities, but to a far less extent children of school age, who were also determined to be less inclined to spread the disease by asymptomatic pathogens, and;
Since the beginning of the 2020 /2021 school year, most, if not all private schools and public charter schools returned back to educating children, and now, understanding that there was always, and will always be an acceptable risk to living, are primarily providing in-person education, which has proved to be a safe and effective program in doing their jobs, and;
in North Carolina, where there exists Leftist controlled governments, there are school districts where children, under their watchful care, have not, or are not experiencing any in-person public education, and;
in the United States, where there exists Leftist controlled governments who have cozy political relationships with Leftist Teachers' Unions, who have expressed a will to not return to in-person education in the foreseeable future, regardless of "The Science"
It is becoming a distinct trend that Democratic Socialist leaders tend to follow their Leftist base, and with that base of voters becoming far more Leftist, and unable to engage in deductive reasoning, which is an obvious condition of Leftists, Democratic Socialist elected leaders tend to not "Follow The Science"
The North Carolina General Assembly has now passed Senate Bill 37
, with the NC House also approving that same NC Senate bill; however, North Carolina's Democratic Socialist Governor, Roy Cooper, has not yet signed the bill, with conservation in Raleigh 'that Governor Cooper will be inclined to wait until there is further "Scientific"
Beaufort County's school administration is more than ready and long patiently waiting to provide more in-person learning at the option of the parents and Beaufort County taxpayers that they have honorably served during this Age of Covid, but are incapable of doing so without administrative guidance as authorized from North Carolina's government, and;
Our children have long been pronounced as our "Greatest Resource"
, and should that be eternally true: Why would any caring society allow those children, whose young minds are yet to be molded into thoughtful instruments to navigate, eagerly and well, that same society, to devolve into a directionless generation, where depression, drug addiction and even suicide becomes a considered option(?), therefore,
Let it be resolved,
that Beaufort County's Commissioners do hereby demand that North Carolina fully opens all public schools, ensuring every child has access to in-person education, and, furthermore, should the governor unwisely veto Senate Bill 37
, then Beaufort County's Commissioners humbly request that a super bipartisan majority override any prospective and unwelcome veto.
Written by Beaufort County Commissioner Stan Deatherage for passage on March 1, 2021, and intended to be sent to all NC legislative representatives and executive branch leaders, who influence all Covid 19 decisions for the People of North Carolina.
