My reaction to Sanford’s win:
North Carolina lawmakers bored with U.S. Constitution, want a state religion
Frankly, North Carolina is DONE with its southern neighbor getting credit for being the kookiest Carolina.
No, NC doesn’t have a former governor who “hiked the Appalachian Trail” all the way to Argentina. It doesn’t have a lieutenant governor with a penchant for dressing up like a slave-owning plantation owner. But if 11 Republican legislators get their way North Carolina may have something South Carolina doesn’t: its own state religion.
(Judaism: most likely not North Carolina’s official state religion to-be)
Two Republicans, with the support of nine other cosponsors, have filed a bill that would allow North Carolina to declare an official religion and nullify any federal court ruling that might remind North Carolina about the pesky First Amendment.
So I wrote to all Arkansas Senators, and this is one of the responses I got
I love the thinly veiled contempt he holds for my words. Can you spread this around so Arkansas residents know how unwilling to communicate about legislation that affects them he is?
Yeah, I got a similarly disappointing response (BY THE SAME SENATOR!) right after Beebe’s Veto of the 20 week bill:
Basically Senator Clark not only thinks it’s okay to make light of the fact that abortion is sometimes the only viable option for people with chronic conditions but also thinks that his constituents want him to vote this way and that “the most vocal are women”. I’d like to see these vocal constituents, as the only ones I know of are urging him not to vote this way.
Alan Clark, like all Arkansas Republicans, is a disgrace to humanity.
