Queen Aldona picked to be Canadian Ambassador

We really should not insult our Northern neighbor like that:

In the 2018 election cycle, Wos gave more than $760,000 to Republican candidates and causes, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. Wos led the state Department of Health and Human Services for about 30 months.

While her boss, former Gov. Pat McCrory, gave her high marks for controlling Medicaid spending, her term was marked by threats from the federal government to sanction the state for food-stamp failures, a temporary shutdown of food benefits to low-income women and infants, and questions about no-bid contracts and the hiring of an executive from her husband’s firm to a high-paying, contract position as her assistant, The News & Observer previously reported.

In her defense, she had her caterers box up what was leftover from her bi-weekly dinner parties and gave that food to her housekeepers and landscapers. Except for the Flan. She kept the Flan.

This should be in everybody's top five issues that need to be addressed:

We don't need to "bring back" Debtor's Prisons, they already exist.

Trump brings his idiotic observations to Charlotte

At least a babbling brook is actually going somewhere:

"You saw what happened," Trump told the crowd at CPCC's Halton Theater. "It was the 'impeachment hoax,' and now that’s a thing of the past. They have the 'failed impeachment hoax.' They can put that on their resume. It’s a failed hoax. Every one of them have to put that right on their resume. It was a fix. Until it got up to Congress."

It didn't "get up" to Congress, it started in Congress. I was going to mention the "bicameral" nature of Congress, but that's too complicated to fit on one of Trump's pre-k flash cards. It doesn't take a mental health professional to detect some serious cognitive issues in his stream of unconsciousness, constantly repeating words like "hoax" until it's replaced with another that tastes right (resume). I watched a video of that speech (I won't subject you to it), and it's plainly obvious that Trump is taking some form of medication, prescribed or not. It's not helping.

Please don't forget about this, folks:

I think we can all agree that young voters are a reliably progressive voice, and we need them now.

You know you're living in a Fascist country when:

I guess it's time to re-write that Statue of Liberty phrase...

Thom Tillis is a species of carrion fowl, preying on the less fortunate:

Thanks, I've been meaning to dredge up that old video anyway. Shaming people who need food stamps and other public assistance is craven, to say the least.

This is what obstruction looks like:

It's not the crime, it's the cover-up. Because the cover-up is exceptionally strong circumstantial evidence that the crime did actually occur.

McCrory sez he's not running for Governor

But he might bring his 3 E's (whatever the hell they are now) to the U.S. Senate in 2022:

Former Gov. Pat McCrory will not seek a return to the governor's mansion this cycle but will "seriously consider" running for the U.S. Senate in two years.

That's when current Sen. Richard Burr plans to retire, leaving an open seat. On his Charlotte-area radio show Thursday morning, McCrory said he considered running for governor but didn't want to contribute to society's division.

Translated: "I'm askeered of Dan Forest's rabid fanbase." Also, I thought you liked stepping on toes? Toe-stepping your way to a more Educated, Efficient...Energetic North Carolina? Yeah, you're right. I'm having way too much fun with this. And now I feel forced to defend Myers Park Pat after reading this from Mark Walker:

No big surprise, but it still needs exposure:

And I'm also waiting for the faux-Libertarians to howl about government waste...still waiting...
