NC Legislature just seated an insurrectionist. Dems walk out.

https://www.wral.com/nc-democrats-walk-out-as-republicans-seat-lawmaker-who-attended-jan-6-capitol-riots/19956697/


What is the DoJ doing? We have insurrectionists getting seated on state legislatures. At least 6 of them are running for Congress next year.

1. We have one in Hunterdon County NJ

Susan Soloway - one of the eight running for election today - who participated in the coup attempt.

Sedition Susan may actually win - and that makes me fear my neighbors.

5. Of all the crimes Courts are charging the insurrectionists with

Are any of them felonies? I would think attempting to overthrow our Government would be a felony.

6. Damn it North Carolina!!!!

Meadows, Cawthorn, Tillis, Banks. Now insurrectionist. Always pull for my state to beat any Florida team in sports. Rarely happens. So we are trying to beat Florida in stupid politicians? Just damn it.
Who would have thought when the country began, with very smart people in charge, that STUPID would destroy democracy? See, education is a waste of time. You can be President and even destroy an entire country with an IQ below 50 and barely pass high school. If you get that far.
Founding fathers that wrote the rules for democracy, all those big words and smarts are getting stomped by stupid people with LESS words than trump. FreeDumb!!! Seems we have Freed DUMB.

Historically, that list only scratches the surface on the lowest of the low. Never forget Pat McCrory and Jesse Helms. We survived worse.

Personally, I can't wait until I get to dance on Art Pope's grave. He's never held elected office in NC but is responsible for untold heartache and despicable acts in NC politics.

Also, more Democrats than Republicans vote in NC and it is thanks to gerrymandering that the effect of those votes are watered-down.

There's also a serious and inspired third party, consisting primarily of libertarians, that seldom gets called out for their love of criminal malfeasance and their threat to democracy in North Carolina.

15. Old Art

The dollar store billionaire. McCrory’s first week in office he gave his staff a raise in the range of $10,000. And us state employees did not get a raise for 10 years prior. So badly gerrymandered we were deemed no longer a democracy. But Meadows and Cawthorn………FFS. Now Burr is being exposed for his thievery. Good thing about getting older, I can continuously pee on all their graves. And the Dollar store “General”, Pope, inherited the billions. Keeping China rich with their cheapest crap. And we have Snake Handling, tambourine beating Jesus folks lovin it all. Give em a gun store, a Dollar store and 100’s of churches, sometimes all in one building, and that is progressive. All the lead in Pop Corn Sutton’s moonshine fried their brains.
