NC’s new Lt. Gov. and his wacky crusades

This morning’s edition of the Weekly Briefing shines a little more light on a subject that a handful of obervers have highlighted in recent months — namely, the rather bizarre passions and crusades of North Carolina’s Lt. Governor-elect, Dan Forest.

For instance, Forest serves as the co-director of a nonprofit that purports to rate giant corporate retailers on their “pornography” policies. In the group’s new “Faith-friendly Christmas Guide” it informs readers that the giant retailer Sears gets very low marks in this category because, among other things, its catalog “features women in lingerie.” Conveniently, the Guide even then provides a link to the online version of the lingerie catalog so that readers can be sure of what it is they’re crusading against!

    Another of Forest’s projects is to change the state motto to “North Carolina, the new Mississippi!”.

    David and Rob would not get Jesus Christ a chance. You are mean, narrow minded who never searches for the truth. You only advocate for the corrupt Democrat way.

    Frances, if you are looking for the truth, the bible is the last place to start. I wouldn’t say that the bible contains no truth, but how useful is a glass of milk with 2% milk and 98% piss? If you want to talk corruption, the most corrupt administrations in U.S. history are REPUBLICAN, Grant,Nixon, Bush II, and the mack daddy of them all Ronald Reagan.

    David did you tromp the mushy swamps of Vietnam because of LBJ’s Gulf of Tonkin Resolution? I bet you were part of the “Hell no we won’t go” group. Perhaps you recognize, “Hey, Hey, LBJ how many kids have you killed today!” Do you know how how many were killed from the Harvard class of 1971? ZERO!!! Do you know how many were killed from a small poor rural high school in North Carolina in 1971? FOUR. You make me sick to my stomach when you try to defend Democrats. You talk the talk but you do not walk the walk. You are blinded by your own stupidity. There has always been a class warfare and Democrat presidents share the blame.
