What does Greensboro's electorate know about what is actually happening?

“You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.”

Exodus 20:13

Do they know which Greensboro City Council members
fraudulently sold a $20 million swimming pool to the electorate
to put some of the 99%'s heads on the 1%'s beds down the street?

Do they know which Council members put renters more at risk
by transfering rental water and sewer liabilities from the 1% to the 99%
that will now cost Greensboro's taxpayers more than $500,000 per year?

The partisan, when engaged in a dispute,
cares nothing about the rights of the question,
but is anxious only to convince his hearers of his own assertions.


Does Greensboro electorate know which people they are voting for
eliminated proactive inspections on student rental properties?

If they can get you asking the wrong questions,
they don't have to worry about answers.

Thomas Pynchon

Do they know about the $50 million obligation
for unfunded retirement liabilities was just dropped in the city's lap
that no one seems to mention
as they make promises that cost more money?

If you choose not to know something,
especially if that something is something you should know,
you are morally blameworthy.

Robert P. Lawry
Director of the Center for Professional Ethics

Do they know Greensboro is sitting on a $300 million
pile of cash
that some City Council members want to spend
to make themselves a legacy with
with other people's money?

Were white northern college students enlisted for voter registration drives,
only after murders of black civil rights volunteers
went relatively unreported by law enforcement and news organizations?

Do they know they may be reelecting leadership
with the worst track record for bringing in new jobs
of any large city in North Carolina?

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it,
people will eventually come to believe it.

The lie can be maintained only for such time
as the State can shield the people
from the political, economic and/or military consequences.

Joseph Goebbels
