The Republican bait-and-switch continues

If a city cop walking the beat came across somebody pulling this stunt on the sidewalk, he would arrest the con-man on the spot. Then again, with the NC Legislature exerting so much control over counties and cities, con-men and other fraudsters could end up being protected as entrepreneurs.

The measure of our progress is not whether we add more to the abundance of those who have much; it is whether we provide enough for those who have too little. - FDR

And another one:

When motorcycle safety becomes anti-abortion:

These jackasses are out of control. I'm beginning to think this budget impasse was merely a ruse, to keep the General Assembly in session so they could keep running their scam.

This isn't Democracy, it's a fucking circus.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

That one is what my friend Joe Sam tweeted about.

Joe Sam is the man...

Joe Sam is the man...

What are they ashamed of?

If their ideology is so pure and noble, why do they have to resort to arcane parliamentary tricks and secrecy to get their agenda passed?

I think they think

that since they are already under fire via Moral Mondays and the media exposure from such, they might as well go for broke. It's not like they have to worry about pissing people off; that's already happened.

I've been watching News14 steadily for the last three hours or so, and they have yet to mention anything about today's shenanigans. Multiple stabbings in Greensboro, a hurricane south of the Equator that is not really a hurricane yet, but nothing about the massive fraud being perpetrated in Raleigh.

Update: They just mentioned HB695, but nothing about this newly rewritten, used-to-be-a-motorcycle bill. Or the wildlife being protected from eminent domain. *sigh*

News14 is Hell...

I detest News14. My definition of hell is stuck in an oil change place and being forced to watch this "newscast" for 45-60 minutes. It's horrible. I've never seen news and weather presented so boring!

They're just now mentioning

today's substitution. Showing Rick Glazier right now. They're also doing a web poll (down on the right), and right now it's a dead heat. Normally I wouldn't care about it, but the poll was mentioned in the news report itself, which means they'll probably talk about the results later.

The news 14 poll

I've been refreshing it and it's the same numbers for both "yes" and "no".

I think the poll is just rigged or not working properly.

My Twitter feed just went ballistic

And I'm not even following that many people. Here's one from Kay:

It looks like the US Senate is about to fix the student loan problem, and Kay deserves a few pats on the back for that. But the Republican-controlled House chopped food stamps funding out of the farm bill.

Okay, that's probably all the national news you'll hear from me for a while. Way too much crap going on right here in NC to get distracted by DC politics.
