Can you say machine gun?

Thomas Mills recently cautioned Democrats to avoid campaigning against the NRA. I tend to agree with him. The NRA is a distraction. I'd also caution candidates against running on "gun control" or "gun safety." The former is too broad and squishy. And though the latter is admirable, almost any sane person is already in favor of it. I'm not sure "gun safety" buys us anything.

Will GOP leaders push for a constitutional amendment to shrink the size of the NC Supreme Court?

Faced with the likelihood that Anita Earls will crush opponents in her run for the North Carolina Supreme Court, Phil Berger and Tim Moore, leaders of the NC Senate and NC House respectively, may be hatching new plots to take over the judiciary. They can't win playing by the rules, so they'll do what they always do: Rig the system to suppress democracy.

Two faced Tillis

Listen to Senator Tillis getting all sanctimonious over the insider trading involving Equifax. Then answer me this. Where the hell is Mr. Tillis when it comes to Carl Icahn's insider trading related to Cheeto's steel tariffs? Icahn made millions dumping stocks that would be affected by the tariffs right after meeting with Trump ... and only days before Trump's tariff announcement.

What's up with that Senator Tillis? What does Trump have on you and your family? Videos of golden showers? Memos from Russian prostitutes? What are you afraid of, Senator?

Duke Energy threat: Action requested

Received via email:

Duke Energy has threatened a libel suit against NC WARN regarding our rate case evidence that the Charlotte-based giant uses more than $80 million annually to influence government officials, civic leaders, news media and the public – and that its monopoly-captive customers are forced to pay the bill. This comes after Duke’s witness – state president David Fountain – declined to provide explanation or evidence to counter our analysis.

Burr <3 torture

Just when you thought our senior senator couldn't be more of a scumbag ... Burr comes out in favor of a known advocate for torture and cover-up to join the dumpster fire in DC.


Sometime the truth squeaks out from the most unlikely source. This one is definitely a long-term lease.
