Nearly half of NC citizens say the General Assembly is a national embarrassment

From Under the Dome.

One of the more intriguing poll numbers in the latest monthly Public Policy Polling survey due out later today: 45 percent. That's the portion of voters who believe the N.C. General Assembly is causing the state "national embarrassment."

Bound to be good for business, right?

In case you missed it: Big Government Republicans distorting free-market for automobiles

There has been much national coverage of how Senator Tom Apodaca has been shilling for car dealers to stifle competition in the automobile business. In case you missed it, this story epitomizes the corrupt influence of business interests on government policy.

From the state that brought you the nation’s first ban on climate science comes another legislative gem: a bill that would prohibit automakers from selling their cars in the state.

Remember

For those attending Moral Monday today, something to keep in mind.

The Republican-controlled legislature in North Carolina
is not a legitimate government.

A comment from Tim Tyson: Our lunch counter

Lifted from comments on another thread:

We need to keep the protests and civil disobedience building week after week; the session will end, by which time this legislature needs to be famous from sea to shining sea. That will bring the Chamber of Commerce types, banking, real estate, and much of the economic interests in the state down on the Republicans like a hammer. Before the protests, they were sitting on their hands and waiting for their huge tax cuts. Now they can see that NC is in danger of being--or worse still, seeming--like Alabama and Mississippi. Large sectors of the economy depend upon NC's more progressive South image. Money is the mother's milk of politics, and we need to raise a lot of it for the coming fight.

Daily dose

Tomorrow's news will cover mass arrests in Raleigh, courtesy of our illegitimate police state. In the meantime, more misery below the fold.
