Opinion Letters ‘Moral Monday’ name change

In a new letter to the editor, Sen. Thom Goolsby restated his headline “Moron Mondays” to a new agenda titled “Money Mondays.” Ahah, the truth is out! He has to connect money to Rev. Barber’s movement because he and his Republican cronies cannot, for the life of them, connect the movement with morality. There is not a moral bone in their bodies. Talk about money. This legislature was, with the help of the “Citizens United” case, bought and paid for by corporate money.

There is another movement afoot to amend the Constitution to declare that corporations are not persons. Sixteen states have signed resolutions to amend. It takes 38 states to take it to Congress. It will take some time but it will be done. Petitions online at MoveToAmend.

Make no mistake about it, Republicans are terrified of these grassroots movements that are growing and coming to a city near you soon. Moral Monday in Asheville on Aug. 5, at 5 p.m. Be there if you care. Organize, agitate and spread the truth.
