I woke up this morning

Waking up is never a sure thing for me. My family has a rich history of heart disease and every doctor I've had worries about my cholesterol.

Yesterday I had some kind of medical episode, not sure exactly what. Might have been a TIA or something similar. Might have been a panic attack, dehydration, who knows. My daughter called 911 and an ambulance came out to where we were on I40. I ended up not going to the ER, but am still a bit out of it. Life is short, that's for sure.

Another thing voters need to know about Maddy Cawthorn

As this election season moves into the final stages, it's worth recapping the pros and cons of candidates surrounded by controversy. One of least appealing among them is the guy named Madison Cawthorn. He's pictured here, wrapped in the American flag, insulting patriots and veterans who fought and died to protect the country it stands for.

Any true patriot knows that treating the flag like an overcoat expressly violates the US Flag Code:

The political death of Dan Forest

As Dan Forest's polling numbers continue to collapse, the stink of desperation is setting in. Cooper leads Forest 52% to 39%, with the gap increasing every time a new poll comes out. It ain't over till it's over and anything can still happen, but I'm cautiously optimistic that our great governor will come out on top.

Because it's good to have a record of evil

A good move from the NC Democratic Party

Today, on the first day of early voting, The North Carolina Democratic Party launched NCGOPCorruption.com, a website built to explain the decade long history of corruption in the NCGOP.

Forest, Tillis, Berger, Moore and the NCGOP have no delusions in how they are running their operation, absolutely for themselves and no one else. Our state cannot take any more of this culture of corrupt Republican control, this November North Carolinians will make their voices heard at the ballot box.

Day 203

When I went into quarantine back in March, I figured we'd be in for at least a year of misery. No one really knew how this new virus would behave and the misinformation coming from the federal government was mind-boggling. We still don't know as much as we need to know, and the misinformation has gotten exponentially worse.

Don’t get distracted

Some are saying North Carolinians are now left with an unenviable choice in the US Senate. We can vote for a guy who texted with a woman (not his wife) in California. Or we can vote for a guy who stood by silently while 200,000 people died in the pandemic for no good reason. It's a no brainer.

Cal says he's not dropping out of the race for US Senate, and he shouldn't. He made a mistake and he apologized. I'm willing to drop it. Because when it comes to decency and morality, I'll take a little texting over accessory to mass murder any day.

What's left to say?

Not long ago, I was fed up to my eyeballs with Thom Tillis and his anti-American behavior. The election wasn't in full swing, and Tillis was scrambling to position himself as some kind of bipartisan hero working for all our citizens. In the months that followed, up to this very day, Tillis has devolved into the ugliest and most vile of creatures imaginable.
