Establishment Grandstanding

Though filed on April 1, it seems this proposed law in North Carolina is no joke.

"The North Carolina General Assembly asserts that the Constitution of the United States of America does not prohibit states or their subsidiaries from making laws respecting an establishment of religion."

I'm not an expert on the Constitution, but I did get the home game as a lovely parting gift. So my understanding is that the Supreme Court has ruled that the guarantees of the First Amendment have been incorporated to apply to the individual states.

I mean, some of my best friends are white people, but...

when whites have murdered a couple federal prosecutors and scared another one off the case, it may be time for racial profiling and stricter government surveillance. I know some of you liberals will want to paint these terrorists as white "extremists", and suggest that the vast majority of white people don't share their views, or murder innocent people. But here we're talking about a direct attack on our government; we just can't go all soft on whitey in these circumstances.
