NC becomes 1st state to drop federal jobless funds

NC becomes 1st state to drop federal jobless funds

back on election day, someone on DU posted a happy thread about who the losers were. answers, mitt romney, whoever Elizabeth warren beat, etc. i responded with "the people of NC."
i knew then it was going to be bad, but i have to say i did not even know it would be this bad this fast. they are seriously going to destroy the beautiful state of north carolina. when my job wraps up here i'm going back home. it hurts to see what is happening in this state and feeling quite helpless. they are absolutely relentless and holding all the cards.

Go Texas!

i just watched Rachel's coverage of the proceedings and am so touched. i was out of town working this week and just catching up now. it is wonderful to see your state go BLUE and what you did for women in TX. i am so moved i am crying.
