If you've seen Richard Burr outside of a major GOP "give me your bucks bazaar"--raise your hand! Oh, my!! Not many regular North Carolinians get to see or hear from Burr about jobs, affordable housing or bringing home the bacon. What's more-- the "invisible" senator was nowhere to be found Tuesday when his party's presidential nominee spoke in Wilmington. Huh? Guess Burr doesn't want North Carolinians to know he supports Trump because the party told him who to back and how to vote.
Maybe Richard Burr can explain why an American flag lapel pin makes him more patriotic than anyone else. Patriotism is about loyalty to America not allegiance to a political party over all else. Patriotism is about protecting the rights of all, including the incendiary and threatening comments of "Donny Dangerous."
BTW, gov. Pat McCrory didn't shy away from saying he supports Trump. McCrory delivered a cutesy stump speech for his flagging gubernatorial campaign.
If John Q. Citizen breaks zoning ordinances--he'd have the whole city coming down on his head. What's this kah-kah from Steve Medlin not having the authority to order the Durham Republicans to cease & desist? If Democrats did the same thing--Dallas Woodhouse would climb on the roof, scream that the whole thing was orchestrated by Hillary Clinton.
It's clear that Pat McCrory, Richard Burr, the NCGOP and Donald Trump are unfit to serve. Send them a message by sending them home in November.
Anyone who says Trump is not stoking the fire of hatred is in need of psychological help or a thesaurus. The GOPs nominee has renewed the 35 year old "Southern Strategy," promoted by Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush and others. No need to worry about ISIS. The Republican Party has adopted a racist credo. The GOP is destroying America, the greatest country, through terrorist tactics and fear-mongering.
We are better than this. We must reject the fabrications, the lies, the animus.
Pat McCrory and the Republican-heavy legislature shows they don't give a hoot about the rights and needs of regular people. They want total control of every aspect of the lives of citizens and taxpayers for the benefit of the wealthy. McCrory morphed quickly into a guardian of privilege.
Let's hope in November that the people revolt, sending the power grubbers to the political graveyard.
This ain't Kansas. But McCrory and the Republicans are looking more like Sam Brownback's administration every day. McCrory and the GOP cabal are SOS--Stuck on Stupid. Pat's bright budget ideas are hitting the middle class and less well-heeled: the labor tax added to services like clothing, shoe repair, plumbing, painters, floor installation and car wash detailing, home deliveries.
"The legislature already expanded sales taxes in 2013 to include movie and other admission tickets, manufactured home sales and other items."(N&O)
I hope North Carolinians recognize the "odor of mendacity." Skip Stam and the rest of his gang are making up stuff to hide the dirty little secrets of the Cult of Power-Trippers. ISIS isn't headed to the Tar Heel State to demand cop shop videos. Videotape a confidential informant? C'mon! The NCGA is not a private club. The public is entitled to view documentary material recorded on the $500K body and dash cams paid for by TAXPAYERS.
