You know, if BergerMoore had shown half the energy they're showing now during their recent "session" they might have actually accomplished some things for the state. But of course you can't hold fundraisers while in session, so...

I'm sure the irony is lost on him...
There is no science or data that supports keeping children out of the classroom. In fact, there is overwhelming data that supports keeping them out is detrimental to their mental and physical well being. #nced #ncpol #ncga https://t.co/mlU5hVhY88

There are actually reams of science and data supporting that, but that won't stop you from standing on the sidelines and yelling at the coach. Of course in-person instruction is better for students, but you can't have that if all your teachers get sick (and some die) from a global pandemic. Idiot.
1/2 Over at the @NCCivitas Voter Registration page, Republicans lead in net registration gains again this week (even ahead of unaffiliated).
This has been going on for several weeks. #ncpolhttps://t.co/cUXDA4QFUY

Also known as "whistling past the graveyard." We'll take another look at those "net" numbers after November 3rd. For now, check these numbers out:

Absentee ballot requests 784,067 (+3,883 since Saturday) #ncpol

Apparently they didn't get the (insane) message yet to vote by mail and then show up on Election day for round 2.

Not sure God would appreciate you allowing a dark money group to slander your opponent. Something about bearing false witness? I don't know, you're the scripture lady. Find it yourself.

Sure, if that 3,052 dead were closer to 10,000, everything would just be hunky-dory. Just stop.
This is monstrous. Like, Nazi Germany monstrous.
When we retake our country from these demons, we must hold Nuremberg-esque trials for every single person involved in this barbarism, from the WH officials who order these acts to the people following those orders.#ncpol https://t.co/6cadBvX45B

I think it's time for the United Nations and/or the World Court in the Hague to step in:
According to Wooten, ICDC consistently used a particular gynecologist – outside the facility – who almost always opted to remove all or part of the uterus of his female detainee patients.
“Everybody he sees has a hysterectomy—just about everybody,” Wooten said, adding that, “everybody’s uterus cannot be that bad.”
“We’ve questioned among ourselves like goodness he’s taking everybody’s stuff out…That’s his specialty, he’s the uterus collector. I know that’s ugly…is he collecting these things or something…Everybody he sees, he’s taking all their uteruses out or he’s taken their tubes out. What in the world.”
According to The Intercept, ICE declined to comment on the allegations in the complaint, while a Lasalle Corrections spox said it was “firmly committed to the health and welfare of those in our care.”
“We are deeply committed to delivering high-quality, culturally responsive services in safe and humane environments,” the person said.
Don't hold your breath waiting for the "pro-life" crowd to be outraged. These are immigrant women, the fewer of those babies the better.
Evil Steve wants to break something.

That's actually FEMA money, because Tillis and his GOP Senate cohorts couldn't put together a second relief bill. Lying sack of $#!+.
We will know the results of almost every election on election night in #ncpol. Most absentee ballots will be counted on election day and the results will be known early that evening. https://t.co/stqj7hK6fJ

Thanks, Andy. We need to shut down this "we won't know" crap that is going around. p.s. I'll be criticizing you again tomorrow. ;)

If Trump tries to "fast-track" some bullshit miracle cure before the election, I'm not going to take it either. He's been cutting corners on this pandemic from day one, and I wouldn't trust him to put a band-aid on my arm.
I am proud to announce my endorsement by the NC Values Coalition, which works to protect and promote family values. As your senator, I will continue to support policies that defend core family values. https://t.co/P4SzVWNqHN #ncpol #ncga pic.twitter.com/QnJuHxSX1i

You act like that's a good thing. It's not. It means they find you sufficiently bigoted to represent their extremist views, when you're supposed to be representing everybody, including your LGBTQ constituents. If they're right, you are not fit to serve.
The Lost History of an American Coup D’État
The Wilmington Massacre was a coup and a foundational moment in creating a white-supremacist state. In 2007, Thom Tillis blocked a state resolution formally apologizing for the massacre. #NCPOL @SenThomTillis https://t.co/cwEjzaSZau pic.twitter.com/oPujNjfBhU

Probably because he just assumed it was Republicans who did it, and he was trying to cover for them (like he does for Trump). He's not the sharpest tool in the shed...
On that historical note, here's your Onion:

This is also a true story, unfortunately.
