#ncga: “court-packing”, flood-relievin’ and the return of BIG WORM

Yessirree.  The,um, honorables are back. And they WANT your wallets.

I heard all this talk during the campaign about how all of this flood relief money was already appropriated and waiting to be spent.  I also heard a bunch of federal money has already been secured for flood relief.  So, what ARE we really doing back here so soon?  (Solar, perhaps?)

The Round Rev thinks he has the answer.  Those tricky Republicans are up to some court-packin’.  (He worked hard to sneak that Floyd-the-barber-lookin’ brother onto the Supreme Court, and he is NOT about to let the honkies throw a monkey wrench into his efforts.)  Never mind that the state constitution allows the legislature to expand the Supreme Court by up to TWO seats.  Never mind that the Democrats screwed around with the makeup of state courts in 2000 — with the approval of then-rookie AG Roy Cooper and without any uproar from the faux news driveby media or assorted lesbian “preachers”, drum circle performers, and women’s lit adjuncts profs we hear caterwauling from the House balcony these days. 

Oh, I have to give a shout-out to a loyal reader for his discovery of The Round Rev’s former career in Hollywood.  Specifically, his cameo in the 1995 hit film “Friday,” starring Chris Tucker and Ice Cube.  I got talked into watching this masterpiece — which is quite funny, by the way.  Mr. Tucker and Mr. Cube express their concerns early on in the film about the impending arrival of one Mr. Big Worm.   Finally, Big Worm appears on screen, and I could swear it was The Round Rev himself rolling up to holla about Medicaid, HB2, and the damn Republicans. The resemblance is UN-CANNY.   

No wonder TRR handles himself on-camera so well.  He’s had BIG TIME practice back in the day.

  1. I’m of mind that it is a bad idea. As I watch the behavior of protestors and even the media, it makes me wonder if they are trying to goad the NCGOP into doing it. It’s like they’re asking for it.

    I can live with it either way, but this idea that “Democrats did it first” is a childish rationale to sell out principle. Next time, do a better job of informing the public just who the judges are and what kind of rulings they have made. If they had done that, we wouldn’t be having this conversation at all.

  2. The problem that needs to be corrected is that voters were duped by ballot arrangement to elect a socialist Democrat when they thought they were voting for the Republican. There are some idiots responsible for the voters getting duped. First is idiot consultant Paul Shumaker who convinced Edmunds that his party affiliation should not be on the ballot. The second is idiot David Lewis who put the bill up that way, and when a conservative legislator pointed out in committee that party affiliation should be added, Lewis just said that well that could be added next year. Shumaker and Lewis did a real number on everyone. Citizens do not need to be struck with a socialist court due to those two idiots political malpractice.

  3. Since the NC Constitution allows up to 9 justices on the NC Supreme Court, why not use the tools available and protect the citizens of North Carolina from the tender mercies of an otherwise prone to legislate from the bench Supreme Court?

    Yes, the election placement of names was screwed up. Yes, all races need to be partisan so voters are playing with a full deck.

    In the meantime, let’s use the tools we have to fix this. Why be wimps?
