We should have known better. They pull some kind of stunt like this every session, but hopefully this will be their last.
It's easy to figure out why Cooper is polling 27 points ahead of Forest. https://t.co/PlUmtXpFw1

Yeah, it is. Dredging up an old article about dead people having had other health issues besides Coronavirus is somewhere between blaming the victims and defending the damn disease. Photo-Op Dan is getting desperate, throwing shit against the wall to see what sticks, but he doesn't realize he's providing strong, damning evidence of how he would react to a crisis as Governor. We can't let that happen.
The effects of the Great Suppression will translate into $8 trillion in federal budget deficits over the decade. The national debt would rise to $41 trillion by 2030, or 128% of the GDP projected for that year — a share higher than during WWII. https://t.co/L77qIqmAw8 #ncpol

I don't seem to recall John Hood complaining about the Trump administration's soaring deficits, which are now surpassing a Trillion per year. But now, pandemic stimulus is an even larger virus than Corona. WTAF.

Not even close to being ready.
How much of a hurry was the @ncsbe in when they submitted their request for funds CARES Act to the Election Assistance Commission? So much that they didn't have time to cut the boilerplate out. But some states have not submitted their requests yet. #ncpolhttps://t.co/wLrxtNobhM pic.twitter.com/Mz1NXZrzvr

This is what inspired me to use "Insert an angry, frustrated observation in this space" as the intro in yesterday's NC Chamber post. Hopefully several people got it before reading this, because my sense of humor is becoming increasingly ambiguous in my dotage...

Keep it up, you'll soon find yourself enjoying the declining approval of NC citizens just like Dan Forest is. That includes conservatives, by the way, who largely support the Governor's efforts.

As much as I hate to do this to you, the idiocy of ReOpenNC adherents needs to be faced head-on:
A revolutionary act happened on May 5, 2020 in Bellhaven North Carolina at the First Christian Church, when NC district 79’s representative Republican Keith Kidwell attended worship services in person, in defiance of Democrat Governor Roy Cooper’s orders that churches remain closed until at least May 23 amid Coronavirus concerns.
“Announcement to Governor Cooper, I will be sitting in a church pew. You do not have to authority to prohibit the free exercise of my religion!” Kidwell wrote on Facebook.
“This crisis right now in North Carolina, according to one of our lawyers, from the point of view of a Christian is the laregest Constitutional crisis of our time,” Kidwell told me, Sunday.
Bellhaven is in historic Beaufort County, which is also home to Washington, North Carolina. These people have faced overreach by the Government before.
On April 30, 1864, Federal troops burned the town of Washington in Beaufort County, including burning the churches, leaving many of the inhabitants destitute and homeless.
Many people see the irony that in an odd twist of logic, Democrat Cooper now uses “States Rights” claims to close the business and churches, threatening many of utter destruction.
I missed where Cooper made that claim. But I didn't miss Donald Trump telling Governors they were on their own, and to buy their own PPE and such. Kidwell is apparently planning on filing a lawsuit against Governor Cooper in the next few days. I kinda look forward to him getting his wittle feewings hurt...
This is how Americans now interpret freedom: Not as a political condition in a democratic society, but as a constant chant of "you're not the boss of me." This is not freedom, or at least not freedom in any political sense. It's a child-like understanding of autonomy. /1 https://t.co/lB7Xth6KCP

They have no idea how much they resemble a death cult.
Not my model. I said its downward revisions show original projections were panic-inducing speculation.
Actual deaths topping its latest revision early suggests IHME didn’t guess Cooper’s incompetence would result in 252 deaths in 71 nursing homes etc, 64% of total. #ncpol
— Dan Bishop (@jdanbishop) May 4, 2020
The vast majority of those nursing homes are run by private corporations. Private corporations that Dan Bishop would see totally unregulated, if he could. It's hard to imagine an empty suit that could also be a hypocrite, but here he is.
What does @SenSchumer have to do with #ncpol? He knows @CalforNC's extreme liberal agenda won't fly in NC so he and his allies have booked over $37M in negative ads against @SenThomTillis. The people will not be fooled by Schumer's attacks and his rubber stamp Cal Cunningham.
— NCGOP (@NCGOP) May 4, 2020
At least he didn't pull a McConnell and blow millions posing as a diametrically opposite interest group trying to sway a Primary election. That was pure stupidity, a core GOP trait.
— NationalVoterCorps (@NVC2020) May 4, 2020
I endorse this message. Just so you know, Ohio just concluded its all mail-in Primary election a few days ago. The fact you probably weren't aware of that is evidence of how smooth it went.
@GlenBradley is speaking tomorrow in #Raleigh! All things #NC #pandemic legislation and how what @NC_Governor signed into law today impacts your #Liberty. #ncpol #ReopenNC #freenc #COVID19NC pic.twitter.com/O6GXN04h0V

I don't have the heart (or desire) to tell these political neophytes that Glen Bradley was such a pain in the ass to his own Republican Party that they carefully drew the map to get him out of office. Whatever creds this group had with NC Legislators just got shot full of holes with Bradley's pop gun...
It’s kinda surprising to me that Alamance County isn’t blue yet. I mean this could be a huge economic hotspot, it’s only 30 min away from Greensboro and Chapel Hill, 40 from Durham, and 50 from Winston Salem. As NC continues to grow I expect Alamance to grow exponentially #ncpol

Oh, we have a fantastic location. But we vote like it's in the middle of the Mississippi swamp country. We're working on it...

Is that why he did his last little "interview" in front of the Lincoln Memorial? What a predictable pontz.
On that face-palming note, here's your Onion:
