Till Tellis. Oh, wait, it's "Tell Tillis" ... dot ... com

How many reports have you read ... how many tweets ... how many emails ... about the latest outrage in the General Assembly? This bill destroys environmental protections. That bill rips apart the schools. So on.

I'm guessing I've read a thousand. Really. These guys have run some seriously bad bills. So many that the S308's and the H42's all start to run together.

But ask yourself, what really sticks in my mind when I consider the Republican-led legislature in action?

If you're like me, it's Thom Tillis paying his House staff $150K a year (the Governor makes less) and handing out raises while teachers assistants and preschool leaders are tossed out on the street.

Oh, and two old fools in the Senate careening around like maniacs or — and maybe this is worse — lying about their prowess when they crank up their engines.

Which brings me to TellTillis.com.

Check it out.

They're cutting the hell out of the budget. Maybe while they're at it, they could cut the crap?

***

Or maybe they should just cut the cake and tell us to eat it.

Which we can do — eat cake, that is — tomorrow at 11 on the mall behind the Legislative Building.

It's courtesy of the Together NC coalition, which isn't feeling real good about the chances of Gov. Perdue's budget veto being sustained:


WHO: Together NC
WHAT: Farewell to Old North Carolina Party
WHEN: Wednesday, June 15, 11 a.m.
WHERE: Halifax Mall at the General Assembly Building, 16 W. Jones Street, Raleigh


RALEIGH (June 14, 2011) — Join Together NC as they bid farewell to some of North Carolina’s most beloved, valuable public structures before they are sent on their way by the passing of the state budget.

Enjoy a slice of cake and sign the farewell card to public investments such as North Carolina’s public education system, natural resources, and health systems. Don’t miss out on your pink slip party favors, too.

Cake will be served from 11:00 a.m. until noon at the Halifax Mall by the General Assembly Building in Raleigh. The program will begin at 11:15.
