You can’t make this shit up.

“Hey, Ralph. What I want yeh to do, is sneak up on dat deer, put two bullets in his brain and then leave wid’out makin’ a sound.”


The party that wanted to implement a state religion, exempt the state from enforcing federal laws and tax parents whose children vote at school now wants to legalize silencers for hunting. We’ve got the fifth highest unemployment rate in the nation and 47 of our 100 counties have lost population since Republicans took over the legislature. And they can’t get past the stupid shit.

It’s like a bunch of children playing government who desperately need adult supervision. Thom Tillis should be that grown up but it seems the kids have tied him up and stuck him in a closet. On the other side, Phil Berger just wants all the kids to like him so he’s letting them have their way.

One thing is perfectly clear: The North Carolina General Assembly has a serious leadership problem. At a time when we need somebody to step up and offer some real solutions, we’re debating political bills like Voter ID and authoritarian redistricting schemes, or stupid bills like silencers for hunting. We’re not even talking about the pressing problems facing our state. I guess that’s what you get when you elect people who believe government can’t do anything right.

If Phil Berger and Thom Tillis run political campaigns the way they run caucuses, Kay Hagan’s got nothing to worry about.

    As a Republican and a TEA Party member I have to say I have heard nothing about silencers for hunting rifles. There may be one person that made some comment, but nothing would come of it. But I have to ask, what difference would it make, noise wise, between a silenced rile and a bow and arrow? If there was such a law passed allowing this it would not make any difference. The anti-silencer law is a federal law. But overall I just don’t understand why the democrats and other liberals hate the concept of freedom. And just for general information, I don’t think the idea of a silenced rifle is a good idea. The silencer would toss off the aim.

      Thanks for stopping by, Thomas. The difference between a rifle and bow and arrow is about 1000 yards.

    Yeah, but these are Republican legislators we’re talking about. Expecting them to know anything about how government works is like asking cows to build a rocketship.
