To the South: Nutcase NC General Assembly Would Make Cooch Proud

    The “intertubes” have been abuzz with Crazy Cooch stories. He’s so taken by the subject of sodomy laws that he wants the courts to revisit and reverse previous rulings  on the subject.  He doesn’t even respect the SCOTUS which has long been dominated by (duh!) his side.  The man is whacked. Ooops, sorry, no pun intended. Nothing I am about to say should discourage  anyone’s keeping Crazy Cooch’s idiocies front and center every day until November. No, I plan to mention him in just about every post I do from now until Nov. Everyone should. But Crazy Cuccinelli has kissin’ cousins South of the state border in NC. And they are on the fast track to out-do Cooch–by a long shot. Here is just one of their escapades.

    Not wanting to let Cooch be the only whack-job in the nation, 11 sponsors in NC’s GA put forth a bill/resolution spitting on SCOTUS themselves.  But it does more than just spit on the court as arbiter of anything affecting NC. It purports to enable the establishment of a state religion. And, voila, Virginia wasn’t the only laughing stock in the headlines yesterday. Read about it here and read the full bill here. Here are the key parts,


    Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

    SECTION 1. The North Carolina General Assembly asserts that the Constitution of the United States of America does not prohibit states or their subsidiaries from making laws respecting an establishment of religion.

    SECTION 2. The North Carolina General Assembly

    does not recognize federal court rulings which prohibit and otherwise regulate the State of North Carolina, its public schools, or any political subdivisions of the State

    from making laws respecting an establishment

    of religion.

    So bad was the fallout, and seeing future election losses piling up right before his eyes, the Speaker of the House and resident idiot, Tom Tills (the worst so-called legislative leader in the nation) called off his fellow crazies. The bill now has no chance of becoming law, we are assured. Tillis also claimed that the bill didn’t really establish a state religion.

    Hahahah.  Ah, the technicality. The resolution doesn’t establish a religion. Rather, it allows the establishment. Distinctions are important, ya know. But more to the point, the state of NC gives SCOUTS the old middle finger salute. It finds the courts irrelevant and thus doesn’t listen to them (fingers in ears).

    Follow the link to read the “great” Tenther language too.  NC is a laugh a minute. I think they took lessons from Cooch.  Any more ridiculous laws he can reinstate?  Or established precedent to single-handedly toss out? Pass the faux lawbooks.

    PS I m laughing because ya have to do it or it would just be too damn sad. With jokers like these “leading” our states, we are so hosed.

      At least, that’s what insiders tell me.

      What’s MUCH more disconcerting is the extent to which their voter disenfranchisement bills have gone.

      To recap: if your kid registers to vote at their college, instead of voting in the district they no longer live in 9 months of the year, you lose that deduction. Your taxes go up because certain people think your kid may vote for the wrong party, basically.

      I’ve been in Virginia 4 years. My family was in North Carolina for around 250 before that. This is personal to me.
