Tuesday Twitter roundup

We'll begin with some election year hyperbole:

A trend that was brought about by the devastating deregulation of the financial industry by free-market nut-jobs like yourself. By the way, Kay's last name only has five letters and "e" isn't one of them. It ain't hard to keep up with.

More illiteracy evident in DAG McCrory administration

The assault on the English language continues unabated:

On Sunday, though, the official Twitter account of North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory tweeted with pride that the patches on the green jackets were made in the Tar Heel State – and made double-bogey in the process.

“Great to see the patches on the infamous green jackets at @The_Masters are made in Weaverville, NC!” McCrory’s account tweeted.

We'll start with a chain of causality:

Prejudice against unions in North Carolina is both persistent and illogical. What has being the least-unionized state in the country brought us? Better and more secure jobs? Oh, hell no:

We'll start with an unfortunate truth:

The short answer? North Carolina's outdated yet persistent patriarchal society is well-represented in our business community, and those wealthy (white) men are loath to give up their dominance by nominating or supporting women candidates for office. Aside from the sexist angle, these men fear the variables that would result, like the propensity for doing the right thing. Don't like that opinion? Prove me wrong. Please.
