There are methods for dry waste management that would greatly reduce this problem, but they don't want to spend the money.
3/4 There are also folks who were registered to vote during the Obama elections but have not voted since. They would have been removed during recent list maintenances. #ncpol
Registration changes from Jan 2008 to Nov 2012:

FWIW, the frequency of voting should not be a determinant on the eligibility of voting. The Constitution doesn't say a damn thing about requiring participation. It's like telling somebody, "You haven't spoken in public for eight years! Be quiet!"
Former N.C. State Receiver @BoHines has decided to change his planned run for Congress from NC's 5th district to the 13th.
The 13th district will have no GOP incumbent, as Rep. Ted Budd is running for US Senate.#NCGA #NCPOLhttps://t.co/sGmQ0MfDvL

This took nerves of steel:
More than a few people turned around in their seat and looked with puzzlement, and likely suspicion, at the Black man they had never seen before standing in the back of a Sons of Confederate Veterans crowd. A man to my right took out his phone and began recording me. The stares began to crawl over my skin. I had been taking notes; now I slowly closed my notebook and stuck it under my arm, doing my best to act unfazed. Without moving my head, I scanned the crowd again. The man in front of me had a gun in a holster.
"But it's not about race, it's about heritage!" Bullshit.

Yeah, but there ain't no beef in that bun:
And it all starts with the labor force. If the labor force that is unemployed is reluctant to get back in the employment line because of higher unemployment checks, small businesses – especially retailers – will suffer. Anecdotal evidence suggests this already is happening.
"Anecdotal evidence" is an oxymoron. Especially here in NC, where only 10% or so of supposedly eligible unemployed receive monetary assistance. They're having trouble filling the jobs because of the jobs themselves, not those missing employees.

140 police officers were injured by insurrectionists that day. The PBA and every other law enforcement group should be raising hell with people like Foxx for encouraging that, but we get crickets.
Differences in household incomes or other measures among ethnic groups have many potential explanations. Cultures, traditions & family structures vary. Educational levels & labor-force participation vary. Settlement patterns vary. Preferences vary. https://t.co/SebsSONDIH #ncpol

Dude, you really need to avoid subjects you're not prepared to dissect. Affirmative Action has been in place at one level or another for half a century. I know you hate it, but it has been applied liberally in our society and government. Critical Race Theory merely helps explain why that was needed. Which is probably why you hate that too.
As @Bentnews explains, North Carolina's 2022 U.S. Senate campaign is quickly becoming a crowded field with Republicans and Democrats expected to have a long list of candidates to choose from in next March's primary election. #WakeUpCLT #ncpolhttps://t.co/qhyv2Ful7R

Okay, I have hit my limit on McCrory photographs. Please stop, I'm developing a nervous tic in my right (face) cheek...
A windfall of cash could be headed to North Carolina if multi-state settlement agreements are reached with opioid distributors and manufacturers for their alleged roles in fueling the opioid epidemic. #NCPOL #NCGA pic.twitter.com/4o2kasigne

And you can thank Dem AG Josh Stein for that, but you won't hear that from Republican lawmakers like Lazzara.
The 6 House districts #Koch targeted will be those of Dem Reps @RepKirkpatrick, @RepDavidEPrice, @RepChrisPappas, @RepMalinowski, & @RepElaineLuria & @RepSpanberger of Virginia. A sample ad reads,“Tell Rep. Spanberger: hands off our #prescriptiondrugs!”https://t.co/taRGzSW1Mp

The very definition of astro-turfing, created and refined by the Koch Brothers. I'm pretty sure about 99.9% of Americans want lower prices for prescription drugs, so the only way to stop this is by deception.
