All hands on deck tomorrow:
Moore: veto override vote set for Wed. on bill to reopen gyms, bars, etc. Cooper vetoed it Friday. House will be first to take override vote, since it's a House bill (H594).

They better not start back with their tricks during this pandemic, but I don't trust them to grasp how inappropriate that would be.

Probably shouldn't even respond to this lame-ass conjecture, but: Crimes against property have taken a back seat to crimes against persons for a long time. There is no comparison between a broken window and a fractured skull, and there never should be. That is the spirit of our system of justice, but it's not always the practice. George Floyd had his life taken away for passing a counterfeit $20 bill, and he probably wasn't even aware he did it. And if it wasn't for the outrage that ended up destroying several businesses, his murderer would likely still be free right now, and still be wearing his uniform.
Governor Cooper's statement was not radical, it was a reflection of sound jurisprudence, something we are desperately in need of these days.
This is a good step. Credit to @DanielforSenate and @KrawiecforNC for pushing the No Patient Left Alone Act and drawing attention to this issue that has hurt families in NC. #NCPOL https://t.co/WGo0ad4rZf

It may have "hurt" families, but it didn't kill them, like unrestricted access would have.

The party of Lincoln(?) should not be concerned about removing icons of traitors. They should have done it themselves, actually...

Did you ever give back that money from indicted briber Greg Lindbergh? Money that was likely defrauded from many NC citizens via insurance premiums? Are you even willing to talk about it? These are rhetorical questions, because your integrity ranks down there with your idol Donald Trump.

Not really sure if that's possible, Joyce.

Since March 15, @NCDES has paid unemployment insurance benefits to more than 719,200 people and provided $4.37 billion in #COVID19 related unemployment insurance payments, including federal benefits. More data: https://t.co/G3QP5wptuu #ncpol #ncga pic.twitter.com/8AEwqWeL1A

Yeah, that's like 3 months plus. You should probably spend less time chirping on social media and more time processing claims...
How can anyone possibly defend voting for this man? How do people like @DanForestNC think he has any business being our chief executive while still promoting this man? How is it not an immediate disqualifier? #ncpol https://t.co/YAY7zoYPUo

Fox News has been working overtime to distract, disinform, and deflect away from Trump's actual words and actions. They will literally show a video of him giving a speech, but instead of letting its viewers hear Trump's words, they "explain" what he's saying. It's that bad.
Dan Forest is the Mike Pence of North Carolina politics. #ncpol

I can't believe I never thought of that. Brilliant.

That is very tempting...
"The Trump administration has been sitting on nearly $14 billion in funding that Congress passed for coronavirus testing and contact tracing."https://t.co/VqYWwUgEWe

Of course he is. Testing makes him look bad, and makes his "things are much better" bullshit harder to float. Congress should have figured out long ago they can't trust him to "administer" their funding properly.

The irony of Grover Norquist appearing on a public television station very likely escapes both him and the show's host, but it should not escape the producers at WUNC-TV.

And this image is proof positive that Dandy is not qualified to run our state during a pandemic, or any other time. Scorning a proven safety measure just out of spite and desperation is not only imbecilic, it will literally cost lives. Shame on you.
