Shattering the myth of the booming economy:

And of course that 1/3 of lower wage earners also cannot afford health insurance. These are the people in the gap that Medicaid Expansion was designed for, but the NC GOP simply does not care about them.

"Fracking has reduced carbon emissions" is quite possibly the stupidest thing Pope's minions have written in the last decade. Methane *is* a hydrocarbon, and about sixty times more potent a greenhouse gas than carbon dioxide.

My jury is still out on whether this is a genuine Russian operation or just some creative right-wing nutter. But either way, do not share any of its content, no matter how cute the rescued puppy is or how nice the cop who bought a carseat for a poor baby. It's all trash, just ignore it.

Just so you know, my Great-Great-Great Grandfather and his father both fought for the Confederacy. I'm neither ashamed of it nor proud of it, it's just a footnote. And that's all it will ever be.

Did she ever find the AK-47 somebody stole out of her garage?

How about we not let the UNC BOG have any say in what happens to the damn statue? They had their chance to fix the problem and they made it (much) worse. Let the University itself handle it, with no "guidance" from the BOG or the Legislature.

Affordability! I do not think that word means what you think it does...

On that head-scratching note, here's your Onion:

Tee hee... :)
