Shop Dogs Against Amendment One
Basta is usually a pretty mellow dog, especially for a boxer, but when he gets riled up about something he can be incredibly stubborn.
It turns out that the proposed legal canonization of hatred and discrimination that is North Carolina Constitutional Amendment One is a real blood boiler for him. He’s so pissed, in fact, that he’s pledged to stand vigil at our virtual gateway (www.backalleybikes.net) until May 8th, when this legislative turd goes to the polls to be flushed down by the voters of North Carolina.
In order to sustain himself nutritionally and emotionally in the meantime, Basta will be making his way to tomorrow afternoon’s Lunch Break Against Amendment One at Carrboro Town Commons: free food, free music, on-site voter registration, and early voting.
It’s embarrassing that our state would even consider such an assbackwards amendment, but we can transform this shame into pride by being the first state in the country to shoot down this idiocratic abomination.
