The dangerously idiotic gun bill that wouldn't die:

Yes, I have looked over the lists of various regional projects, and am duly impressed. But no matter how much you spend updating parks, if you don't have enough staff to maintain them or keep them open, what's the point?

I can imagine at least one Supreme saying, "They wanted to do what?"

John, that's so stupid it's merging into Onion territory. Now, if it was "fatter" legislatures...

And you are already pandering to a base that knows even less about national security and international diplomacy than you do, which is scary on so many levels I don't know where to start.

Let's just see how bad the misunderstanding is:
Sadly, less than 48 hours after Harnett’s election as Chairman, Democrat disparagement was out in full force, with Democratic consultant and blogger Thomas Mills writing “A lot of North Carolina Republicans woke up Sunday morning to find that their state party chair is an African-American man with Muslim sounding name” and wondering “how long it will be before the GOP asks to see his birth certificate.”
Here's a word your vocabulary is apparently lacking, Sardonic: "disdainfully or skeptically humorous : derisively mocking." Thomas wasn't cracking on Harnett, he was cracking on you for applying vastly different acceptance criteria for two black men, based solely on their political party of choice. Interesting note: Both "Hasan" and "Barack" translate as "handsome young man" from the original Arabic.

It looks like we have a new political version of the grammatical "word salad," called "name salad," where intellectually-challenged right-wing spokesbots add Obama, Clinton, Pelosi, Al Gore, or whatever other controversial national Democrats they can think of to state or even local issues. "Until we get those Obama-loving Clintonistas off the county school board, our children will be at risk!" It's like living in Disney World sometimes, only without the cool rides.

Really, is it? Is it time for Democrats to toss away core principles in the hopes of snatching some crumbs off the floor from their GOP overlords? You want to know where Republicans really stand on this whole Main Street Dems issue? Here you go:

No respect at all, just contempt. You can't "share" power with Republicans, you have to take it. And the only way to do that is to stick to your principles and continue standing up for the rights of the people, and not the rights of wealthy businessmen, who already have so many advantages they can't see them all.

And once again, the arrogant GOP leaders in the Senate undermine weeks of work done in the House. Send it back, and send them the message there are actually "two" houses of the General Assembly, and not just one.

Ahh, not one word about "why" rural hospitals are struggling, or what Mayor O'Neal wants Congress to do about it. There's a fine line between bringing news to a digital audience and posting click-bait, and this one crossed over.

I'm getting a bad case of deja vu...

First of all, the Supremes' decision had nothing to do with Roy Cooper's job performance, and everything to do with the blatantly unconstitutional ultrasound requirement. Secondly, aren't you supposed to be a Libertarian? You know, defending people from unwarranted government intrusion into their lives? Your first public statement after being chosen, and already you've proven you're a hypocrite.

Um, consumers are the ones who suffer the most from inflation. If any "adjustments" are to be made, bringing the fees down would be the thing to do.

Sometimes the NC GOP makes me feel like we're living in the 13th Century...

In case you haven't been keeping up, she's putting herself forward to run against Wayne Goodwin for Insurance Commissioner, and one of her platform issues is battling ISIS. Because...ISIS wants to take over NC's insurance industry? Best not to even try to figure it out...

This is a good thing, but I can't help picturing 30-40 years from now, when this bridge will end where the Outer Banks used to be.
On that depressing note, it's Onion time, baby:

They shouldn't do that. They should also probably avoid eating in the cafeteria for a while...
