NCGOP email back on. Doubts raised on Dallas’s ‘security’ spin.

Loony Left a/k/a Chapel Hill’s “finest” showing their butts (*sigh*) AGAIN

Lefties love to bloviate about those of us on the right allegedly clamping down on free speech and showing violent tendencies.  Try bringing a conservative speaker to The People’s Republic of Orange County and see for yourself who it is doing all the hollering, disrupting, and denying of free speech….

#NCGOP — Gambling, govt child care, and solar subsidies: Welcome to Kristen’s World

#ncga: Fletch Rents

Political consultant do a lot of things for their clients.  Not many play landlord for them.   We’ve been following the unusual case of state senator Fletcher Hartsell (RINO-Cabarrus) — such a good Republican that he got committee chairmanships under Democrat majorities.   It took two and a half years,…

#ncga [Something up in the House today?]

As you know, we — like Paul Tine — are members of the House Republican Caucus (without ever having been elected to the House as Republicans, of course).  We got this interesting missive in our email this morning: Is there something interesting — like a veto override — in the…
