You are not required to answer a question about voter id this year.

Hat Tip to Watauga Watch and Talking Point Memo...

Looks like Tillis has been promoting himself as a graduate of an institution he never attended.

http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/thom-tillis-college-university-of-maryland

Would anyone really confuse UNC-Greensboro or UNC-Chapel Hill or UNC-Pembroke with an online course that was completely separate from the University?

Does Tillis really expect us to believe this crap?

Common-sense North Carolinians of all parties should be paying attention to the May 2014 primary race for one of the seats on the NC Supreme Court.

NC's most astute sitting Supreme Court member, Justice Robin Hudson, is being challenged by two corporatist opponents. One of those challengers is an Art Pope minion who serves at one of the Pope entities. Corporatists are trying to squeeze Justice Hudson out in the May primary.

Justice Hudson's rejection of her regressive colleagues' was affirmed by the US Supreme Court (even by Justice Alito!!!) last year in Wos. V. E.M.A.

Since state legislators continue to pass bills in violation of their oaths to the state and federal constitutions, it is again time to rearm citizens with the basics of our shared government -- the constitution.

The NC Constitution speaks directly to voting rights and suffrage. In fact, Article VI, Section 1. of the NC Constitution is literally titled "Who may vote." It doesn't get any more plain than that.

Since idiot state legislators continue to file bills in violation of their oaths to the state and federal constitutions, it's time to rearm citizens with the basics of our shared government -- the constitution.

The US Constitution is what binds us together to form a country. The North Carolina Constitution is wholly subservient to the US Constitution. Why? Because the North Carolina Constitution says so.

Inexplicably, there are reports that the Legislative Ethics Committee is not going to investigate the Speaker's-Office-Sex-With-Lobbyists Scandal.

The Legislative Ethics Committee denied the investigation request saying it did not have the authority to investigate legislative employees or lobbyists. The committee governs the conduct of elected lawmakers in the General Assembly

On what planet do these people operate?
