Not endorsing Trump's EO per se, but NC *should* be paying the unemployed an additional $100 a week, across the board. That's only half of what was slashed earlier in the decade. #ncpol

Until Congress gets its shit together, we need to do this. Most Federal grants come with a state or local government buy-in. And when this thing expires, NC needs to make that extra $100 (if not more) a permanent increase. p.s. This is not a complete reversal of my previous opinion, but I've seen several folks say that Governor Cooper should decline to participate, and that would be a mistake.

The irony of wearing masks in support of candidates who refuse to wear masks is overwhelming.
Recently, an op-ed alleged, Republican-led NCGA is waging “the stoutest war against African Americans seen since the Jim Crow era.” Read below to learn why I’m a Black Republican, running in a party embracing progress over promises. #ncpol #ncga #NCGOPhttps://t.co/yFDCepUYxR

Not trying to be reductive (okay, maybe a little), but anytime I see "published author" on somebody's bio, especially when it's accompanied by "motivational speaker," my crackpot antenna begin waving:
Peddled to a mostly Christian audience, which earns her the Crackpot Trifecta. Running against Jeff Jackson, by the way. Just, no.

"Look! Look at these black students saved by school choice! Democrats are racist!" Talk about a broken record playing the same lyrics over and over again...
Activist judges threaten what our Founding Fathers intended. The law was written by and for the people - not for the furtherment of a particular social or political agenda. #ncpol pic.twitter.com/Ms6Fz1ntD9

You've got that backwards, as usual. The judges that have ruled against the GOP were acting in the best interests of the people, against the furtherment of the GOP's social and political agenda. And behind the bench is the last place you people belong.
Next time @NCDemparty calls with a story call us next. Worst case @WCCBCharlotte has to report both sides best-case @WCCBCharlotte could save themselves from the embarrassment of publishing fake headline like this: https://t.co/rN7hiaTBXO #ncpol

What part of "sister campus" do you not understand? The story is accurate, it just covers two separate (yet connected) events. When the real news bothers and embarrasses you, you may be in the wrong party.
Then maybe the goddamn government should HELP these people since it's clearly NOT safe to send their kids back to school
The #NCGOP *refuses* to lift a finger to help people, instead they pay their staff hundreds of thousands of $$$$ a year to blame everyone else#ncpol #ncga https://t.co/uX63LzXJqX

I would say, "Don't waste your breath on Woodcox," but he is an irritating SOB.
I know y'all in Asheville know better than to vote for him, but out there in the hinterlands ... a lot of them are his people. Still, I believe @ColMorrisDavis has a fighting chance. #ncpol https://t.co/3urLUMhh5S

That's like expecting an excited puppy to not pee on the carpet because you gave him detailed instructions. It. Just. Won't. Work.

So much for the Conservative "Free Market" religion. Somebody paid good money (billboard advertising is not cheap) to balance the psychological impact of that Confederate flag, but the redneck landowner didn't approve of the message. And I guarantee you there is nothing in the contract between the billboard company and landowner that says he has a say in what is advertised.
On that frustrating note, here's your Onion:

It's kinda funny, but I just wanted to get that hair into this diary...
