    Nice selective quoting, there.

    I'm an accountant (at least trained accountant) and I know how easy it is to screw with the books.

    Shifting money is so damn easy it's pathetic... PP could use the damn money for medical instruments, list it as such and put the abortion costs under that - there really is nothing stopping them from doing that either.

    Hell they could report a abortion as a vagina exam...

    I love how fraud doesn't exist in the progressive mind but when it does or is proven they somehow will attempt to justify it - which you will promptly attempt to do after you read this post.

    The legislature is free to not offer any special license plates at all.
    and they are free to offer special license plates for most every political expression which the people of NC wish to have. They are not free to offer special license plates to some but not all.
    I may be wrong.

    The SCOTUS has allowed for time, place, and manner restrictions that are content neutral. To me this could be both a place or a manner restriction. Either way, North Carolina only requires back plates last I heard so get an Choose Life plate and stick it on the front. Put on all the bumper stickers you want. Have your car wrapped in images of aborted babies if you so desire. I think that personalized plates and theme plates are little more than a huge waste of money that the state will gladly take from you.

    So, we're going from they keep their books "sealed"to the new assertion that they play funny with their books?
    I may be wrong.

    Wow. That's some pretty significant cognitive drift you're engaging in. You've shifted from "PP does use public money to fund abortions" to "well... maybe they're cooking the books and that's why it doesn't look like that's happening." Hilarious.

    Also still off topic. Really really off topic.

    Do you wish to say that I left out a relevant part of your statement which changes the meaning of what I quoted?
    If so, you may.
    But I will ask you to provide that relevant part of your statement which changes the meaning of what I quoted.
    I may be wrong.

    Why the hell would a "pro-life" initiative even be on the ballot? Sure it is a state issue but it is a petition issue that was sent directly to the state government.

    If the petition meets the standard requirements it is introduced on the floor and it will be voted on, if it is passed then it is "law" however it can be challenged in court and this seems to be the case here.

    That seems unlikely. Although it's an admirable attempt to continue to completely derail this thread.

    Well, since the evidence tends to suggest that's the case, and you've offered absolutely nothing beyond speculation to counter that evidence, I will continue to do so.
