  •  If only Dems moved this fast (0+ / 0-)

    Here in my adoptive home of NC, just in the last few days, the newly elected republican governor and commanding assembly majority are getting down to business. I still look back at the days of a Dem near-supermajority in the US Senate and wonder what they could have gotten done if sitting on their hands wasn't a higher priority at the time.

    I was going to point out some of the specifics, but heck, just look at the local TV station's politics page. They're fighting Medicare, wiping out commercial oversight boards, cutting unemployment benefits, and reinstating a rule that lets some middle-of-nowhere town use a live possum in their new year's celebration.

      is somewhere to some people.  

      (I'm from not very far from that middle-of-nowhere town.  There's really not much to do there, I can vouch).
