The cost of GOP shenanigans:

And issuing a tax cut while the Budget is still in limbo is negligent, to say the least.
For the absentee ballots *accepted* so far for the #NC09 general election, as of today (8-26-19):

That's a lotta blue. I wish that actually meant something, but I'm not sure it does...

Of course he was absent. Climate Change is "fake news," and it's also too expensive to fix. But the real reason he's ashamed to show his face thhere is because of all the idiotic things he's done, like undermining Obama's emissions reductions and hugging his "clean coal" every night before he goes to bed.
The premiere episode of the #TyingItTogetherNC podcast is out now! @NC_Governor @RoyCooperNC invited @TimBoyumTV into the governor's mansion for a candid conversation on ghosts, the legislature, and how young people can influence change. #ncpolhttps://t.co/jO1I9rkgsL pic.twitter.com/cj1DVLocSh

You could literally fall into those microphones. Is technology regressing? That's like a reverse Victrola commercial...

Just to give you an idea of how many times the "sacred word" has been rewritten, here's the King James version:
I have preached righteousness in the great congregation: lo, I have not refrained my lips, O Lord, thou knowest.
And the New International version:
I proclaim your saving acts in the great assembly; I do not seal my lips, Lord, as you know.
The next time you hear somebody quoting scripture, ask them which of the (hundreds of different) bible versions they got it from. Humor me.

She's not wrong. Race is an issue that permeates not only politics, but society, down to its very core. *Not* talking about it sure as hell hasn't improved things, so let's do this thing.
Trump Has a Vicious New Primary Challenger—and Drooping GOP Support
Trump’s numbers among even Republicans are starting to drop, and Joe Walsh is launching feral attacks and calling out the lies. https://t.co/r0YWTBHQwJ via @thedailybeast #ncdems #ncgop #ncpol #ncga #nc pic.twitter.com/WOVIXT7wJg

FWIW, I detest Joe Walsh slightly less than I detest Trump, so bring it on. But don't ask for any money, because hell no.
Because our state decided to not expand Medicaid, Diane was unable to get the health care she needed to manage her diabetes. Now she is too sick to work and in medical debt. Why are we letting our people suffer when there is a solution. #CloseTheGapNC #HealthCareCantWait #ncpol pic.twitter.com/CpD08gTh3y

That's actually a simple question to answer: Republicans don't care about those people. You don't have to dig any deeper than that.

Yeah, and as learned as they are in various philosophies and forms of government, they know damn well those accusations of Socialism are hyperbolic and misleading. Proving that intellectual integrity is not even in their top 100 list of priorities.

Good grief. Any moderately qualified President would fire him for such a tone-deaf comment, but Trump probably thinks its funny.

Hopefully that puts to rest any questions about NC's Republicans being bigots, because 6 out of the 10 are on that list.
On that disgusting note, here's your Onion:
