Tuesday Twitter roundup

Doing their ALEC homework:

The appellations "out of control" and "power-mad" are no longer adequate to describe this General Assembly.

This is somewhere between negligence and dereliction of duty. The world doesn't stop just because Republicans would rather stick around and jaw about amending the Constitution so some Democrat twenty years down the road will be thwarted in funding something that desperately needs funding. Finish the Budget, and then you can go back to your circle-jerk or whatever the hell you want to call it.

Of course, you don't have any data to back up your bullshit, do you? You remind me of a baby who cries out of sheer boredom, and then has to put up with a shitty diaper because noone believes him anymore. This is believable:

God, I can't believe I just compared Chris with the Peck. See, this is what happens of you expose yourself to too much #ncpol. That shit is contagious.

I...Don't know who Humpy Wheeler is, but I agree with him about the toll lanes thingie. I'm also inordinately curious to find out where that nickname came from...

Okay, first of all, losing millions of dollars due to stupid decisions does not a qualified candidate (or anything else) make. And second of all, if you're trying to have your Tweet show up on a feed or somebody's page, it helps to spell their fricking name properly.

Finish. The damn. Budget.

Really? You think Trump is the most trustworthy of that bunch? He doesn't even know what he said five minutes ago, but he'll fight anybody that doesn't like what he said five minutes ago.

Too many if's and a painful lack of context:

If, at the end of five years, an individual school’s measurable academic growth exceeds that of similar public schools, it would be granted a contract extension. If a school is performing poorly, the contract can be terminated as early as three years from the start date.

It is, Byran insists, a pilot program. If it doesn’t work, it wouldn’t be expanded. The bill, however, could make that more clear and measurable for the program as a whole.

Frankly, it's this very "conditional" support that has brought about the removal of the charter cap and dozens of failed charter ventures. You can't trust the GOP public school destroying machine. You just can't. The bill doesn't make the above clear because it *isn't* a pilot program. Whether it works or not they will continue with it, because even failed attempts succeeded in their original goal, to rip away public control of the school(s) in question.

;) That's pretty funny right there.

As an auxiliary of the Grammar Police, I cannot allow the following infraction to go unreported:

Saine, who co-chairs the House Finance Committee, said he bought “eight or nine” suits, 20 shirts, two belts and two pair of shows from Tom James. He said the arrangement allows for the frequent alterations he said he needs.

Yes, I realize the "w" is right next to the "e" on the keyboard. But the law is the law.

Aside from the fact that would be an invitation to anarchy, it's also not true. You're merely shifting some of the tax burden for schools and infrastructure and health care down to the county and local level, while eliciting praise from the idiots that don't understand.

Once again, Republicans push ideas that work from the misguided assumption we're living in a post-racial society. No matter how hard they work or how much education they achieve, African-Americans still suffer incredibly from discrimination. And happy talk doesn't make a damn dent in that invisible wall.

I don't even want to know the inside scoop...

And that pretty much sums it up. Which candidate can best destroy everything we've gained in the last half-century?

On that jaw-dropping note, here's your Onion:

:o Why that's...brilliant!
