    “The right” and their civility

    "If ever a time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in Government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin. It is a very great mistake to imagine that the object of loyalty is the authority and interest of one individual man, however dignified by the applause or enriched by the success of popular actions.” Samuel Adams

    i'm sure there is a climate change thread you could go discuss that in. this thread is to counter your non stop barrage around here of whining about only one side

    Don't worry. Trump said he would pay the lawyer bills and we know he will because he said he would.

    That said, total jackass move that really subverts the idea of representative democracy.

    There was nothing scheduled until the afternoon. Reportedly Dem representatives received three different forms of correspondence from Replublican lawmakers that there’d be no votes that morning. Then around 9 a.m. a GOP lawmaker made a motion to change the schedule and review the veto, knowing full well the Democrats wouldn't have enough representatives present to block it.

    The GOP reps voting on this are cowards who completely spit on the institution of democracy. These people should be ashamed, but of course they won't.

    If you’ve followed pretty much any news out of NC since this shower of peckerwoods took over the statehouse, this is not surprising. Because of gerrymandering, this “majority” isn’t really representative of NC voters.

    BREITBART) 2020 White House hopeful and spiritual guru Marianne Williamson revealed in a hot mic moment that conservatives treat her better than the liberal voters she is courting.

    "What does it say that Fox News is nicer to me than the leftists are? What does it say that the conservatives are nicer to me," Williamson asked said following a sit-down interview with Sinclair’s America This Week program last week.

    "I'm a serious lefty but they are so — I understand why people on the right called them godless — I mean, it’s like, I didn’t think the left was as mean as the right, they are.”

    The Dems were told there would be no votes taken at the morning session.

    I have worked around a state legislature for 44 years and it's obvious that North Carolina is a little different than Minnesota, but what usually happens is that the majority will announce what the orders of business will be and when those proceedings will begin. It is common legislative courtesy to do so. I don't give a flying f*ck about the whole 9/11 story and if the Dems are pushing that as an explanation, they've shot themselves in the foot by giving the other side an "story" to cover an egregious dismissal of what an orderly legislative process looks like.

    So one detail is possibly incorrect (you're basing this off a Twitter report), and that makes it fake news?


    It's a fact that the NC GOP used extremely unethical tactics to get a bill passed. Whether most of the Dems were at a 9/11 Memorial event is irrelevant.
