Tuesday Twitter roundup

Now I can stop holding my breath:

It was a close one, but that only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades. And nuclear weapons...

The word is "amok," you illiterate sack of genetically-modified potatoes.

"Uh, no sir, it's not 'Jim' it's Tim. Moore...no, 'Timor' is an island in Indonesia. It's Tim...Moore...*sigh*...Okay, hold on for a minute Governor, I'll go find Jim Moore for you." Click.

Of course you do, because it gives you more bullshit talking points to support your ignorant refusal to expand Medicaid. If Gruber had been an anti-Obamacare zealot who was wasting taxpayer dollars, you'd be talking about taking legal action against the Auditor's office for letting him go.

Calling you an idiot would be an insult to idiots planet-wide.

Cherie Berry is worse than useless, she's a tool for an 18th Century-style indentured servitude business movement. And if this isn't a criminally negligent waste of taxpayer's dollars, it should be:

The department inspects elevators and boiler systems. A team of 17 investigators is in charge of making sure employees in North Carolina are paid what they are due.

Of the tens of thousands of workers’ complaints Berry’s office reports that it has reviewed since her election in 2000, attorneys for the agency have filed lawsuits on behalf of workers 36 times, according to information provided by the attorney general’s office, which represents the department in litigation.

Berry’s agency routinely directs workers cheated out of wages to hire their own lawyers and go to court to get their money, according to information provided by Berry’s office and interviews with plaintiffs’ attorneys.

If Berie was a Democrat, the NC Legislature would have continuous, overlapping Committee investigations chugging along. But instead, crickets.

A few Facebook stalkers:

And just how, pray tell, did you know I was a History major in college, hmmm? I'm on to you!

And just how, pray tell, did you know I suffered from occasional lower back pain, hmmm? I'm on to you!

P.S. Sorry about Gary. That sucks.

One word: "Divest."

Right, because nothing solves an erosion problem quite like spinning tires. Idiots.

And as long as we keep allowing racist white cops to patrol all-black neighborhoods, we'll keep seeing unjustified shootings of black youth.

I'll save you the trouble. The poll they lean on this time is even worse than Civitas' own push-polls, which often start their questions with, "If you knew that blah blah blah was going to happen as a result, would you support XYZ plan?" In this case, the push-pollers hint that elderly people would get bumped from Medicaid by "able-bodied" single men, that ex-cons would receive free medical care, and that public schools would lose funding. As if these jackasses haven't already slashed funding for the public school system. SMDH.

On that ludicrous note, here's a bite of the Onion to clear your head:

Very funny, but still politics. Here's another:

"Ohh, he'll be so excited!"

I wonder

Does Senator Berger agree with NC Policy Watch that Tony Tata's comments insulting environmentalists show he's not right person to lead the NC DOT?

I wonder if Senator Berger agrees with lots of people that Thom Tillis's comments insulting poor people show he's not the right person to represent NC in the US Senate?

Heck, I wonder if Senator Berger agrees that Senator Berger's comments insulting teachers show he's not the right person to lead the NC Senate?

Fat chance

Seriously. The Bergermeister could stand to miss a few meals...

An apology to readers:

I meant to save this without publishing during the different stages of creation, but I had a brain fart. So if you read it earlier, you missed some stuff, but you got to experience some behind-the-scenes action. Of course, you missed me growling and typing and pointing my finger and laughing, but maybe one of these days I'll record a video of that. Then again, maybe not...

Thanks. :)

It wouldn't take me so long to get it posted if only I had a brain. Maybe I'll get one for Christmas this year! Yayyy!

Oh, but

Pat: "Separate checks please!"
