the texts of the resolutions passed at the Watauga County Republican Convention last Saturday.
A fine collection of special interest plumping, self-congratulatory back-patting, revenge fantasy paybacks, and selective memory.
The resolution on education alone is jaw-dropping in its complete failure to recognize the destruction done to public education in North Carolina under two successive Republican state budgets. It actually praises Rep. Jonathan Jordan and Senator Dan Soucek for their votes on education, but in Republican World those votes don't seem to include making North Carolina 46th out of 50 states in teacher pay and the firing of hundreds of teachers and teacher assistants across the state.
But, wait! No praise therein for book-banning? There's an oversight!
Wonder if County Commission Chair Nathan Miller wrote the resolution praising the County Commission? Wonder if Virginia Foxx wrote the resolution praising Virginia Foxx? Wonder if some member of the Templeton family wrote the resolution condemning the steep slope regs in the town of Boone? Wonder if Four Eggers wrote the resolution praising the disenfranchisement of ASU student voters?
The document properties of the originals would possibly reveal much about who really runs that party.
