I don't get it. Is he supposed to be a scary Mooslim or a hipster LIEberal.
Berger will block you on Facebook even if you're polite in your disagreements, and even if you're a constituent, so there's that. He's got a ridiculously thin skin for someone who is so brash.
Texas Guy notes that the communities most affected by this legislation are the ones driving the state's economy and that hurting urban centers will negatively affect that state's income tax and sales tax revenues.
Yes, that absolutely correct. That is a feature of this move, not a bug. When state revenues drop, that's just another excuse to slash the budget. Lather, rinse, repeat.
Phil Berger seems to have spent a great deal of time imagining why this law was necessary. That's... weird.
Bottyguy is right. Tweets and statements are cheap. We need to see these businesses funding the campaigns of the opponents of these legislators.
It's time to get behind replacing Bob Edmunds on the state Supreme Court this fall. Forget all the Sanders/Clinton stuff, *this* is the most important election in the state this fall. Replacing a conservative justice with a liberal one changes the balance of the court and gives us a shot to fight these absurdly gerrymandered districts and return real representative democracy to the state.
It is our only chance, and we can do it too. All the Sanders supporters who want to enact real change, even if Clinton wins the nomination? We can start here.
Chester Flippo, can you please explain to me how a Trump presidency accomplishes anything with regard to the issues you cite in your comment. Climate change, youth incarceration, income inequality. How would a Republican be better than Clinton on those issues?
Clinton is the pragmatic candidate because she got the most flipping votes. I like Bernie. I voted for Bernie. I want to see the things that Bernie is passionate about come to pass. But there's something to be said for the fact that minority voters went to Clinton by an enormous margin. We should pay attention to those who stand to lose the most in a GOP presidency. Their opinions are incredibly important.
I hope I hope I hope that this primary run by Sanders becomes a movement. We need it desperately as the sick news out of Raleigh today proves. This movement is about more than one man running for President. If Bernie can't be President, please work hard to give him allies in Congress, in the state legislature and far on down the line.
We've already in succeeded in pushing Clinton to the left. She's listening. Keep the pressure on her and give her a Congress that demands her to stay to her word.
