Republican leaders keep saying there’s no time to help the 37,000 unemployed workers in North Carolina whose unemployment benefits ran out 11 days ago.

The Senate does have important business today. The Rules Committee will be tackling a proposal to make stock car racing the official sport of North Carolina.

At least they have their priorities straight.

    Ahhh, good old NASCAR where the rules change daily and you only have to be mediocre to make a million bucks. Personally, I like the wrecks. So much carnage and nobody really gets hurt, unlike politics in the Old North State.

    Dang it, Chris. I thought I had scooped that stock car thing. Am I going to have to get up before 6:30 a.m. to get ahead of you? *sigh*

    Chris,
    First, call Bev and ask her how was the pony race. I am not sure if the story for the public is correct as of today. Then, call and ask her to remove her veto. Most of NC blame Bev. The reason we hold her accountable is because this is about her re-election bid, not about helping the unemployed people of NC.
