Words of wisdom:
one more thing about the Anglin case. I keep seeing comments about my political affiliation and what it says about my client's case. Constitutional rights do not depend on one's political party. That's the point of the suit. The critiques only feed the argument. #ncpol

And of course the right to choose your own legal representation is also critical in our legal system. But that won't stop the right-wing nutters from acting like little children.
The following are pictures worth a thousand words:

Defining the inscrutable
If you are wondering how the commission is going about crafting the summaries, take a look. Lots of highlighting, counting words, and discussion about whether the sentences are easily understood. #ncpol pic.twitter.com/a72dAWeiHg

Okay, that's enough minimalism from me for now. Hope you enjoyed it...
If you really want to provide 'the best education possible' to the children of North Carolina, let's see transportation and free/reduced-price lunches at all charter schools, and provide traditional public schools with the funding and flexibility we need. #nced #ncga #ncpol

Yeah, the handful of charters that do cater to mostly poor children are "heart strings" schools: The ones that show up in the news to forward the false narrative it's about helping poor people. The reality is, these schools are much more segregated than public schools in general, and without a more vigorous program of oversight, that will get worse as time goes by.
Hunting and fishing amend is the GA's idea of throwing 2nd Amend supporter's a bone. Still have to pay for hunting/fishing license, so why? Just a reminder the republican super majority GA failed to pass constitutional carry or Larry Pittman's armed teacher bill. #ncpol #ncga

There you go, folks. Even the insane gun fetishists at Grass Roots NC view that hunt & fish amendment as a useless political ploy. Stopped clocks and all that...

Make sure you have a barf bag handy:
Harris’ preaching frequently references Ephesians 5:22 in the Bible, which says, “Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord” and the 25th verse, which says, “Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave himself for it.”
In one sermon from Feb. 3, 2013, he said the majority of marital problems could be linked to couples not following that guidance.
“Many marriages could save beaucoups of marriage counseling money if they would just understand; husbands love your wives even as Christ loved the church. Wives submit yourselves unto your own husbands as unto the Lord,” he said in the sermon.
Let me fix that for you: "Many marriages would be much better served by going to a legitimate, qualified counselor than by studying the Bible more closely and listening to a windbag false prophet."
