The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

Groups to Protest at Democratic Convention in NC

2012 Election, America, Democrats, DNC, Liberals, Protest

My blog posts will now until the Election have these questions, statement, and quote!

 

Are you better off now than 4 years ago?  Yes or No

 

Is the country better off now than 4 years ago?  Yes or No

 

We have seen 4 years of Obama.  Do you think 4 more years of Obama will be better?

 

In a time where the Economy and Jobs should have been the most important focus, Obama instead focused on Obamacare!

Several groups, including labor organizations and those opposing President Barack Obama's positions on various issues, plan to demonstrate outside the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte in the coming days.  On Sunday, protesters will take part in the March on Wall Street South — a demonstration that will focus on economic inequality, social injustice and other issues.  It will kick off a week of protests and rallies by groups such as:

 

— Occupy Wall Street.  A protest movement that began last year and claims that corporations have undue influence over the U.S. government, its activities have fizzled somewhat in 2012.  The nationwide movement has issued a call for protesters for the Democratic convention in Charlotte, where an Occupy Charlotte tent city was disbanded last winter.

 

— AFL-CIO.  The largest federation of labor unions in the United States, it is hoping to put a spotlight on worker issues, especially those specific to North Carolina.  The state has the lowest percentage of unionized workers in the United States. The group is planning a massive canvassing effort this fall in all 50 states to turn out voters for Obama.

 

— Southern Workers Assembly.  A coalition of labor groups fighting for collective bargaining and other labor issues in the South, it plans to have a major presence in the city to highlight the impact of anti-union laws in the South.

 

— Farm Labor Organizing Committee.  The farm workers' union says it will use the national attention around the convention to highlight issues facing farm workers and other North Carolina workers.

 

— No Papers No Fear.  A coalition of immigrant rights' advocates, it has organized UndocuBus — a group of 40 undocumented people that has been traveling by bus from Arizona to Charlotte.  The bus has been making stops along the way to highlight problems facing the immigrant community.

 

— Greenpeace.  An international environmental group, it has been critical of Charlotte-based Duke Energy and its CEO Jim Rogers.  The group claims Duke's coal fired plants have contributed to global warming.

 

— North Carolina Values Coalition. An anti-abortion group that supports North Carolina's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage, it is holding a Rally for Marriage and Religious Liberty on Thursday — the same day President Barack Obama makes his acceptance speech at Bank of America Stadium.
