Open threat

This evening post is usually called "Open Thread." But these days, it's really open threat. With an army of gun and god fetishists, and Bill Barr at the helm, the Trump Party has gone full Nazi. This is some scary shit.

A month to go ... updated

In 30 days North Carolina will vote for candidates to run in the general election in November. To say there's a lot at stake is an extreme understatement. Not just for our country, but also for our state.

I'm voting for Erica Smith

This is not a BlueNC endorsement. It's my personal choice.

I had been planning to keep quiet through primary season in the interest of peace and harmony. But last night, after doing hours of research and thinking hard about our system of government, I decided to support Erica Smith for US Senate. Erica checks all the boxes for me, and perhaps most important, she's an African American woman.

Tillis and Meadows: Abandon ship ... or go down with the ship?

It's not often two national politicians can be tied together with a single fancy ribbon, but Thom Tillis and Mark Meadows certainly can. They're both hyper-partisan shills for Donald F. Trump, fluffing the Orange One with no regard for truth, decency, or constitutional responsibility. Each has a daily Twitter presence that sings Trump's praises while denigrating fully half of their constituents with accusations of being part of a liberal mob.

After dark

Some people think there's an enthusiasm gap.
I don't see it.
I'm very excited that voters are going to crush
the Republican Party.
this November.
I can't wait to vote for every Democrat
on the ballot.

Lawless king

Dear Senator Tillis,

You probably agree that
our US Constitution is about as good as it gets.
America's inspired framers engaged in serious debate
and achieved a masterful balance,
a country ready for anything.
Except a lawless king.
That's where we are.

Like you, I was raised to revere the Constitution.
Also like you, I've taken an oath to defend it
against all enemies foreign and domestic.

Tillis on Twitter

Most people in North Carolina have no idea who Thom Tillis really is. But if you follow him on Twitter, the picture is crystal clear. And ugly as sin.

Nothing paints that picture more clearly than this Tweet from Tillis encouraging people to sign a birthday card for Eric Trump. As far as I'm concerned, Tillis could just as easily been asking for applause for a bowel movement ... a disgusting display from a world-class sycophant. And remember, this happened at the same time Trump authorized the assassination of an Iranian general, triggering new tensions, new threats to American citizens, and yet another illegal Republican.
