Tuesday Twitter roundup

How about some good news to start your day?

The growing tendency for industry to poach on public lands needs to be curbed, and this is a great place to start.

I realize deconstructing sentences a la Derrida may be a little inappropriate for the times we're in, but: You can't destroy something twice, unless it has been completely rebuilt in the interim. And when that interim is less than 24 hours, it simply could not have been "destroyed" on the first day. Take your hyper and your bole and drop 'em in File 13, dipshit.

In case you don't know, Amy Galey is the idiot who has started more than one County Commission meeting by reading from the bible first. Rick Gunn was bad enough, but she is a whole 'nother level of crazy. Please support J.D. Wooten in his bid to take that Senate seat. He's a good man; I've spoken to him at length a couple of times, and he is exactly what we need in the NC Senate.

I'm surprised they haven't accused Cooper of being the second gunman on the grassy knoll. Of course he was only six years old at the time, but that would hardly stop them...

This isn't the first time he's struggled to stay in business:

“The option of just throwing the hands up and just walking away from it, that's not an option for any of us in this business,” Strother said. “A few have to do it, but that means a lot of people will be out of a job."

Strother said farm hands, truckers and even pharmaceutical companies are affected when hog farms shut down. He said the impact to local economies could be devastating.

I feel for you. But both Gold's Gym and 24 Hour Fitness have filed bankruptcy due to COVID 19, meaning it's a national issue and not a Roy Cooper issue.

There needs to be a zero tolerance for racism among the ranks of law enforcement. No three strikes, one strike and you're out. All new recruits need to go through an in-depth psychological screening, performed by a 3rd party credentialed medical entity, with a heavy focus on violence and racist tendencies. And seasoned officers need to go through the same thing periodically, less than five years apart. Officers who do not attempt to stop colleagues from committing crimes need to be charged as an accessory to said crimes. These steps should be considered the bare minimum, not a cure-all.

Poor little Timmy. He was looking on from the condo that is paid for by campaign contributions. Paid to him. Because he is his own landlord. Don't ask me, because I can't explain it.

There's a point where cleverness oozes into ambiguity. I probably passed that point with the above Tweet, but it felt so good...

This is how Trump reacts to people making fun of him for hiding in his basement; he sends the cops to tear gas a peaceful assembly so he can stroll across the street (to a church he never attends) holding a bible in the air. It's also how tin-pot dictators behave.

If you had any idea just how stupid that makes you look, you would turn of your Twitter and curl up in a corner and cry yourself to sleep.

On that sadly frustrating note, here's your Onion:

Tee-hee... :)



Credit where it's due:

I'm glad to see this, and would love to see more Republicans speak out. But since Chuck is not running to keep his seat in the NCGA, the personal risk is limited.
