And the NC GOP answers by shortchanging teachers and refusing to expand Medicaid. Clueless.
Remember that they expect small children to be as careful and fastidious with cloth masks as professionally trained medical personnel are with surgical masks. What could happen? #ncpol https://t.co/c2uzAFw8dF

No steps were taken to determine which side of the masks were contaminated (kind of important, ya think?). Sections were cut and soaked in a compound to release proteins before any analysis began, so it's entirely possible (probable) that the masks had functioned exactly how they were supposed to, by filtering nasty stuff before it could be inhaled. Also, these were not random samples, they were provided by the very people who wanted these results. Not suggesting they were tampered with, intentionally contaminated, but that would not surprise me, at all.

I've taken my car over several times, and didn't really use it much while on the island. But I'm not sure leaving my car in Hatteras, and lugging luggage and a bike would be my choice. But your mileage may vary...

Yeah, happy birthday. You should seriously consider retiring from public service, I'm willing to set up a "go fund me" page to send you to the island in "Lost." I hear the Dharma Initiative needs a new button-pusher...

Oh, we're just getting started. It's gonna get ugly, and I'm here for it.

Why do those buildings look like an artistic rendering? Is it just me? Am I developing some sort of weird visual acuity problem? Am I asking too many questions again?

And again, this is what you can expect from allowing BergerMoore to choose all the BOG members. They only answer to their partisan overlords, and silencing dissent is the top concern. Talk about your cancel culture, they're masters at it.
Senate Republicans working with a $6.5 BILLION SURPLUS, and they want to take corporate income tax rates down to ZERO but offer no COLAS to retiree pensions? Really? #ncpol #avlnews #cltnews #ilm #ncga

And where is SEANC and/or Dale Folwell? Anyone? Bueller?
The @LPNC is calling out @NCGOP lawmakers for supporting HB 692, aka the #CarolinaSquat ban. Absent proof of traffic safety risks, seems like a needless swipe at youth car culture that's out of step with conservative & libertarian philosophy. @BrendenJonesNC @JohnBellNC #ncpol pic.twitter.com/niw07uSWg0

I'm with Scott on this one. That is some stupid shit. Now if they would just crack down on the "rolling coal" idiots, I would be happy...
I bet @UNC_System never thought this story would be discussed for this length of time. They were wrong, because they did wrong. #ncpol #ncga "Current UNC trustees must act on Hannah-Jones tenure": https://t.co/QCkTJBxw4j https://t.co/hFzlVNz41J

Honestly, I'm at the point now where I don't want them to fix this. I want Nikole to file a damn lawsuit, subpoena the phone & e-mail records of these jokers, so we can see who has been pulling their strings. The integrity of the entire UNC System is at stake, and the public deserves to know why. All of the why.

He's carrying the dog because the poor little dude would probably make a dash for freedom if he could.

Their budget already stinks to high heaven, but adding this is an intentional effort to force Roy to Veto it. And then they can blame him for teachers getting nothing (as opposed to a pittance), and numerous other disingenuous attacks. The GOP should be tarred and feathered for putting such a poison pill in their own budget, but the focus will be on Cooper rejecting it.
On that disgusting note, here's your Onion:
