Good news out of the North Carolina General Assembly. Democratic legislator Deborah Ross has decided to resign. She has found greener pastures with Triangle Transit. Ross is a huge advocate for illegal aliens that reside in the Old North State. Maybe she can provide them with “free” passes so they won’t feel persecuted from those mean Americans. Oh, I’m sorry Ms. Ross, ‘North Americans.’
Citizenship isn’t exactly her strong suit. We’ve come to expect this kind of self-loathing from a former lobbyist for the American Civil Liberties UnionMs. Ross is good at throwing temper tantrums, especially when she doesn’t get her way. Being a democrat, it usually comes in the form of phantom persecutions and ridiculous ravings of perceived rights.
Here is an example of Deborah Ross' view of special rights as reported by the Winston-Salem Journal:
Once a top lieutenant to then-House Speaker Joe Hackney, D-Orange, Ross is the latest member of his team to leave the General Assembly. She has spent the past 2 1/2 years in the minority party trying to block GOP legislation that she and other Democrats view as reversing gains made by her party over the past several decades. Ross spent Wednesday morning in a judiciary committee unsuccessfully trying to mitigate a bill that would prohibit sex-selective abortions, which she ultimately voted against.At a rally for women's rights in March, Ross said an abortion bill was part of a larger war on women and families in North Carolina that includes rejection of federal dollars to expand Medicaid and a proposal to require photo identification for voting. Both issues affect women disproportionately, she said, adding that the photo ID especially affects older women, who are less likely to drive.
"Why are they afraid of these older women?" she asked then. "It's because they are the women who have fought for rights. They are the women who care about family issues. ... They're doing everything they can to keep us quiet. But we're not going to be quiet."I’m sure you won’t. Not even a scold’s bridle could shame your special brand of stupidity.
