Can someone summarize the article? I read the first few paragraphs but all the author did was say how much he loved NC and never got to the point.

Even if that is the origin of the term, it's not what it means now. It's also why I laugh at people who get all technical about the word "decimate". Words do have meanings, but they change with time.

Take H.J.R. 494, for example. This resolution would establish a state religion in North Carolina. I think we all know what religion that implies.

Well, it would if it was a bill.  Instead, it's a meaningless resolution breathlessly quoted by stupid college students who don't understand how government works.  Like this author.

You'd think if she was spending time in DC she'd understand how all of this works, but I guess high school Civics classes are failing these days.

It's a farking resolution by two state reps.  It has as much weight as a letter to the UN.

It probably has even less weight than that, because if you read it, it's just a resolution urging the state General Assembly to pass ANOTHER resolution with the same words in this resolution, which would be yet another meaningless act.

Dear Jamison Doran:

While I applaud your attempt to talk some sense into North Carolina, I must inform you that you are pissing in the wind.  The U.S. is dividing itself along ideological lines - overweening left-wing f*ckwits in the large cities, New England and the West Coast; and batshiat-crazy religious right-wing f*ckwits just about everywhere else and especially in the Southeast.  Even people who have been traditionally centrist are getting caught up in the outward motion of the two sides.

North Carolina, like the rest of the Southeast, is merrily hurtling toward the right with willful abandon.  Best that you stay in the DC projects, it will soon be much safer than being a non-Christian, non-Republican in the South.

Best,

Benevolent Misanthrope

Happy Hours: Even if that is the origin of the term, it's not what it means now. It's also why I laugh at people who get all technical about the word "decimate". Words do have meanings, but they change with time.


It is my understanding that "decimate" in English has always traditionally meant destroy, ignoring it's roots as a Roman disciplinary exercise to remove 10% of the soldiers.

Personally I hate the word being used that way, so I hope you are right and that it does change. We have a lot of synonyms for destroy, but we don't have any words (that I'm aware of) that mean to reduce by 10%. "Decimate" would be a great word to fill such a roll. :p ;)

FWIW, I never knew the origin of "nitty gritty", but now that I know it, I'm glad, because I'll be grinning like an idiot whenever anyone uses it from now on. :D

I'm enough of a Democrat that the Democrats in coastal Washington State wanted to run me for office.  So you can fark right off with that martyr bullshiat.

If you don't see that the country is polarizing and there's no place left for centrists in the U.S. political system, then you're either an idiot or you're not paying attention.

C/S/B. In the 1990s I was a regular at this bistro on way to school. Every morning a Canadian expat got his coffee and then sat there regaling the rest of us with 1) how bad the USA was, 2) how much better it is in Canada, and 3) why the USA would never measure up to Canada.

At one point I probably said "you know what, its too bad you can't run for office! You'd make a real difference."

He failed to detect my Coastal Washington State irony.

I'd still see that guy standing waiting for the #8 bus on Olive Way years later, looking just as pissed off at the world as ever.

Agreed, though I don't see how we change it.  Feminists say it's an inherent male tendency, "men's rights" guys say it's the female economy of withholding reproduction that causes it, and there's no real answer to how to change it.  It amazes me sometimes in a nation of such bounty that people are still squabbling over resources.

Wow straight to retarded, with all the grace and elegance of a master of the English language and a clearly superior education, you must be smart.
You suggested the author's education was lacking, the article mentions educators in charter schools no longer being required to have any education background, but I'm guessing you didn't get that far. With your delicate sensibilities being offended and all.

North Carolina is actually reacting poorly to becoming MORE liberal, not careening into batshiat crazy fundie farkwit territory.  We voted for the black guy as president once, and came damn near doing it again.  The urban areas are growing faster than the rural ones. The fundie groups are scared, and are lashing out with a flurry of bullshiat to to prove to itself and the country that we are still true to our roots.  They see the tide turning and are scrambling to get as much regressive legislation passed as possible before its too late.  It will turn.

It's basically a list of some of the stupid shiat the legislature here:

The "we can make a state religion" bill.
Repealing legislation that protects defendants from racial bias in jury trials
A bill to allow kids as young as 13 be put in the adult criminal justice system (and removing oversight)
A bill to remove licensing requirements for teachers at charter schools
Making it harder for college kids to vote.
Trying to ban co-ed apartments at UNC

Leave it to a conservative to interpret "wow, this is stupid shiat" as panic.  Pro Tip: Liberals don't get pants-shiattingly terrified of anything and everything that doesn't conform to their expected view of reality.  Liberals don't go on national television and talk breathlessly about death panels, Muslim infiltrators in Congress, anchor babies, Christian persecution, or the encroaching threat of Sharia law.

Though, I guess it shouldn't surprise me that you can't tell the difference between contempt and fear.  Your political masters have plenty of both for you.

Benevolent Misanthrope: If you don't see that the country is polarizing and there's no place left for centrists in the U.S. political system, then you're either an idiot or you're not paying attention.

No, it's "conservative" stupidity and liberal head-shaking, as in "WTF is wrong with you dipshiats?"

People ask for background checks and the bubbas go apeshiat.  They talk about state religions and they say - at best - "meh."

The south needs to go.  Let them secede and have a third-world theocratic plutocracy with mandatory gun ownership and a ban on science.  I'm sure it will be a fkn paradise.

Don't try to make this a case of liberals' overreaction.  This is "conservative"/Republican idiocy.  Period.

Evil Twin Skippy: I'm originally from Pennsylvania. I live in Virginia now. And There's plenty of dipshiat legislation in both places. And yet... If you go back through time, crazy laws have existed since laws were written.

There are places where you need to have 3 hands to drive a bicycle. (Signal turns, AND use hand signals at the same time.) Pennsylvania liquor control board anyone?

Batshiat crazy legislators is not new. Being able to read about their stupidity in a timely fashion, that is new.


Well yes and no. I agree crazy laws are always around but..

www.washingtonpost.com
The derpy right wing culture war has picked up steam since the 2010 election -- all those tea baggers running on "small government" platforms immediately started enacting "big government" laws when it comes to personal morality.

There's similar charts available on other subects, from gay rights to school prayer to establishing Christianity as the only true religion, etc.

Enacting derp is what tea baggers do. And will keep doing until they're kicked out.

Benevolent Misanthrope: Generation_D: Benevolent Misanthrope: Dear Jamison Doran:

While I applaud your attempt to talk some sense into North Carolina, I must inform you that you are pissing in the wind.  The U.S. is dividing itself along ideological lines - overweening left-wing f*ckwits in the large cities, New England and the West Coast; and batshiat-crazy religious right-wing f*ckwits just about everywhere else and especially in the Southeast.  Even people who have been traditionally centrist are getting caught up in the outward motion of the two sides.

North Carolina, like the rest of the Southeast, is merrily hurtling toward the right with willful abandon.  Best that you stay in the DC projects, it will soon be much safer than being a non-Christian, non-Republican in the South.

Best,

Benevolent Misanthrope

"Overweening left wing fukwits?"

you bet, we're everywhere out here. better stay in your home in the middle of someplace else.

Tell you what though, we won't be the ones shooting up the mall or trying to pass laws on birth control requirements or religion.

I'm enough of a Democrat that the Democrats in coastal Washington State wanted to run me for office.  So you can fark right off with that martyr bullshiat.

If you don't see that the country is polarizing and there's no place left for centrists in the U.S. political system, then you're either an idiot or you're not paying attention.


What?

If you think this country still has a left wing, you are either an idiot or you are not paying attention.
