By a unanimous and bipartisan vote, H.R. 1964 has passed the House! When enacted, the Lumbee Tribe will be a sovereign entity under federal law and have access to federal funding and services they need and deserve. I look forward to swift passage in the Senate. pic.twitter.com/9MyXRw4BRB

Maybe it will work this time, but I'm not confident Mitch McConnell will take the time away from packing the courts with Trump judges to do something Trump promised.

Right up until the point they put you on a ventilator. Also, a sheepdog in charge of protecting his sheep, breaking bread with a vicious (if incompetent) predator who wants to eat said sheep, may not be the best symbolism for "coming together in harmony" or whatever the flock you're trying to say.
"Such condescension is part of the reason Democrats failed so miserably this election cycle, but it also misses a key reality: The protesters have good reason for their distrust."

First of all, both Gerry Cohen and Greg Flynn are (highly) above reproach when it comes to integrity. If the N&O chose this picture to go with the Op-Ed, shame on them. If they allowed the authors to choose it, that shame is double. Second, part of the reason why those "late" changes were necessary is because Republicans like Louis DeJoy undermined the ability of the Postal Service to deliver Constitutional votes in a timely fashion. I don't recall Berger, Moore, or any other NC GOP leaders standing up for those voters and pressuring Trump or DeJoy to stop screwing around with the U.S. Mail, so somebody had to defend their rights.

It also means speaking to all individuals in a particular area in order to gather or disseminate information. But that's not relevant to the context of this conversation, so I will just say "thank you" for at least trying to educate people about the English language.

Dude is pretty much an idiot:
Cawthorn spoke to JI from Washington, D.C., where he is attending freshman orientation for new House members through Saturday.
“It’s actually incredible,” Cawthorn said of orientation. “I’m a lover of history, so it’s incredible to be in a place where we had the vote to decide to have the Emancipation Proclamation, where we decided to go to World War II, where the civil rights battles were fought. I mean, it’s just, I got to spend about 30 minutes all by myself on the House floor yesterday — and just to be frank with you, I was in awe.”
The Emancipation Proclamation, a precursor to the abolition of slavery, was signed by President Abraham Lincoln in 1863 and was not issued by vote.
Read the whole thing if you can stand it. He isn't qualified to buff the floors in Congress.
PLEASE wear a mask at all times when outside your immediate household, practice good hand hygiene, & it’s critical we limit social interactions to our immediate household for the next several weeks. Otherwise hospitals won’t be able to provide care for #COVID19- or anything else.

Set to be purged and replaced by Trump in 3...2...1...
A North Carolina 6-year-old was shot and wounded by a stray bullet at his elementary school. The sheriff’s office said there was no evidence of “malicious intent,” and the bullet likely came from someone shooting on private property nearby. #ncpol https://t.co/4TGrkX7w60

I don't give a damn if there was "malicious intent" or not, the shooter was criminally negligent, at best. I've taught foreign soldiers in the use of firearms, and I always gave them the following choice: find some heavy equipment (bulldozer, backhoe) to build a berm, or do it by hand. If you're not sure of your line of fire, don't fire.

About 200 supporters of President Donald Trump rally at the NC Capitol Saturday. The demonstration was one of many “Stop the Steal” protests across the country alleging voter fraud. About 150 people counter-protested within shouting distance. #ncpol pic.twitter.com/63uOddLE4U

Um, he won NC. You know what, never mind. It's like arguing with a barking dog.

Translated: "If my off-the-hip prediction doesn't come true, it must be voter fraud." Idiot.
As we approach #Thanksgiving, let's remember to be thankful for our North Carolina farmers. These hard-working folks across our state produced around 31,000,000 turkeys in 2019. In fact, North Carolina ranked second in turkey production nationally. https://t.co/lq8crwgzob #ncpol

Lol! That's definitely not a turkey farm, it's a turkey somebody took to a park.
This is a NC turkey farm. pic.twitter.com/uZb5UF5DNz

See what I did there? I incorporated my Tweet into the diary's conversation, which is...Okay, it's not really that clever. I'm easily impressed...

Dov is a good egg, a victim of the NC GOP's disregard for the needs of our schools. Give him a shot if your needs converge.
