Just like Trump, make the deal and then refuse to pay your bills until some court makes you do it.
Last week, bathroom bill advocate @DanForestNC claimed he had plenty of friends in the #LGBT community. With a record of sharply opposing equal rights, it remains unclear which—if any— LGBT friends Forest was referencing... #ncgov #ncpol #ncleg https://t.co/rmOGdgaDDP

Lol! Yeah, I'm sure Photo-Op Dan has posed with at least a couple of LGBTQ folks, without knowing it. Friends? I don't think so.

Unfortunately, that other 30% could destroy our country as we know it.

Oh, you'll be seeing a lot of him in Greensboro, but it won't do any good. Walker is toast...
Later in the essay @dcraighorn is quoting, Mattis says “We seem to have forgotten that the foundational virtue of democracy is trust. Not trust in one's own rectitude or opinion, but trust in the capacity of collective deliberation to move us forward.” #ncga #ncpol https://t.co/rP42Ow7gwl

The problem is, when trust is abused time after time, it all but disappears. Human beings learn from their experience, and experience has taught us that GOP leaders in the General Assembly (and Congress) will lie, cheat, misinform, and otherwise take advantage of their opponents whenever they can.
In that environment, trust becomes virtually impossible, for either side. Before trust can be restored, the absence of deceit must persist for an extended period of time.
Per North Carolina's new Congressional map, Dan McCready no longer lives in #NC09. His precinct (32) is in #NC12. Rep. Alma Adams is seeking re-election in the 12th District #ncpol @wsoctv pic.twitter.com/FM500dDWRZ

It is not required that a Representative live in the District he or she was elected to. That being said, Dan would be well-advised to avoid a contest with Alma. The political graveyard is full of them...
As legal fight over Istation continues, some NC schools will start using it anyway. With no ruling yet on contract, year-round elementary schools will begin using @IstationNC in December. Traditional-calendar schools to start in January. #nced #ncpol https://t.co/8PlFq94VKa

And dipshit Mark Johnson is setting his sights on the Lt. Governor seat. He might actually do less damage there...
Randy Ramsey said the BOG should consider consequences for Tom Fetzer, who conducted his own investigation into former-interim Chancellor Dan Gerlach while an official UNC investigation was also going on #ncpol https://t.co/lcWpEZrRg2

They should start by booting Fetzer's ass off the BOG, and then...
So, North Carolina, I think teachers should get raises. But I also think state employees in general should get raises. State employees have gotten less than 6%(!!) in raises (total) over the past 11(!!) years. #ncpol

Methinks you should talk to SEANC about that. They chose to throw their support behind people determined to choke off government employees, hoping for a seat at the table. But they got table scraps instead.
Former @GuilfordCounty commissioner and recent @CityOfHighPoint mayoral candidate, #Greensboro community leader, both mull another run for Congress in redrawn district. #ncpol #Gerrymandering #Election2020 https://t.co/vjzclL3DHI

Kathy ran a strong race against Ted Budd, pulling 45% in a pretty red district. She should run again.
In the McDowell News: There will always be good-faith differences of opinion about the practical application of rights. Think “you got your chocolate in my peanut butter” kinds of disputes. They won’t always result in a nicely wrapped candy treat. https://t.co/tR2QcXt6g2 #ncpol

That first sentence is a lie, so I imagine the rest will be a seemingly polite effort to justify the attitude you claim not to have. Of course Conservatives hate government (administrative), because it enforces statutes and regulations designed to benefit the majority of citizens, not a wealthy minority of such. But that's something they'll never admit openly, so we get these little "explainers" from John Hood.
On that tiresome note, here's your Onion:
