My older brother lives in Oklahoma City. For many years, I have teased him about how Oklahoma always seems to have a truly weird bunch of "Wackos" in their state legislature.
Now the tables have been turned. North Carolina has surged to the front, and now there is no longer any argument. We now hold the title!
It is amazing how this turn-about has occurred in such a short time. North Carolina used to be a rather respectable state. Now we are the laughing stock of the nation.
It is difficult to enumerate all the weird things the "dingbat" controlled legislature has done. But with much effort, I have condensed what seems to be their political agenda down to two items.
First on the economic front: Cut taxes on the rich, in particular big business. Reduce all regulations, so big business can make an obscene amount of money. This eventually will "trickle down" to the lower classes, and all will be just wonderful. Part of this is true. Yes, the good times will trickle down, but to the working classes in China, India or Bangladesh. We have previously proved that this pie-in-the-sky sky doesn't work in America. But the dingbats keep trying.
Second, on the role of women: This one is easy. According to the dingbat philosophy, "Woman's place is in the kitchen, and she should go there as soon as she comes home from work." One of these days, the women of America are going to wake up and organize, and then the dingbats are going to be sleeping on the couch.
RECYCLE the LEGISLATURE.
