Wanted: State House grammarian

… at least when it comes to naming study committees.

An official notice sent out yesterday by the N.C. House of Representatives called attention to an upcoming meeting of the “MAKE MANUFACTURE WHILE USING STOLEN IT AN UNFAIR ACT COMMITTEE.”

According to this link, that’s the actual name of the committee.

    manufacture, n. the making of goods or wares by manual labor or by machinery, especially on a large scale: the manufacture of television sets.

    …assuming they mean “stolen I.T.” it makes sense, but is a little awkward.

    Growing up I had a couple of buddies who were Mennonite, they used to say,”Throw the horse over the fence some hay.” I think it’s time for Tillis to investigate a possible Amish conspiracy at the state house.

    So they’re going to study how to pass laws to illegalize something that is already illegal?

    Looks like someone got a healthy donation recently from MSPAC.
