Just a friendly reminder:
NC is having municipal elections in 2019. We NEED local level progressives running for board of elections, town council, mayor, and everything in between. Who are the progressives running in your town? #NCpol #BlueWave2019 #ResistLocal

I am running for local office (again) this year, and hoping our voter turnout is closer to 20% instead of the barely 10% we got last time. It's hard to believe people could be so disinterested in their own community, but there it is. Take the time to get to know who's running in your local election, and what their priorities are. Because by the time something stupid gets done and shows up on your radar, it's probably too late.

It's red for ed, and a fist for resistance. These efforts to cast it as a Soviet symbol would make Joe McCarthy scratch his head in confusion. And the fact y'all don't even know how stupid it makes you look, and how desperate for relevance you are, is just really special.
And your final Sleazy Sixteen matchup is between state Sen. @jdanbishop, #NC09 candidate and primary sponsor of HB2 (need we say more?) vs. Congresswoman @virginiafoxx, who wants to dismantle public education #WorstNCPols #ncpol

Oh, god. Patrick Gleason is back. Here's me begging the N&O to not publish any of his trickle-down nonsense.
House Bill 330 to cut state energy use and save North Carolina taxpayers money is moving through the General Assembly led by Rep. @JohnSzoka: "It includes a no-cost directive to building managers....turn the lights off when you leave the room." https://t.co/KCYB7RqKa4 #ncpol

Turn the lights off? Really? Trump is right on the verge of scrapping regulations that helped replace incandescent bulbs with much more efficient CFL and LED bulbs, and you're saying turn the lights off? Don't forget to say, "Shut the damn door!" Idiot.
Why aren't Beto O'Rourke, Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, & Kamala Harris not voluntarily divesting 70% of their wealth to the federal reserve as good examples of combating wealth inequality?#MAGA #MAGA2020 #tcot #ccot #ncpol

The NCPOL feed was already dumb enough, but when this dude showed up, the average IQ dropped 7 points...

Neither Trump nor Tillis actually care about our military, but getting voters to understand that is mission impossible.
HB370, a “show me your papers” bill that would require sheriffs in NC to cooperate with ICE and would sue them if they didn’t, has passed from the Rules and Operations Committee to now be debated by the House of Representatives. #ncpol #ncleg https://t.co/dQuA9ZvTpW

And now we'll see how many of those Republicans believe in Big Government overreach...

I. Don't. Care.
Good news here. Citizens of a Rural NC county push back on a proposal to become a “Gun Sanctuary” calling it a “non-issue” that sought to divide the people and would only reinforce a negative image of the people in the area. #ncpol #nolables #moderate pic.twitter.com/q472maldab

Thank goodness for a bare minimum of common sense. But just the fact they floated the idea is bad news for Pender County. Because bestowing a mechanical device with the status of a "victim that needs to be protected" is one of the most ludicrous things I've ever heard.

On that hilarious note, here's your Onion:

Honestly, with the Trump administration, a statement like this would not raise an eyebrow.
