NCDHHS: a big government mess decades in the making

The liars in the remnants of our state’s mainstream media would have you believe state government was working like a charm prior to the January 2013 inauguration of Republican governor Pat McCrory.  *The seventh seal has been opened.  The Prince of Darkness and his four horsemen are walking the Earth, bringing about the End of Days.  Children are being starved.  Barry Saunders is being discriminated against.  Lefties are being asked to leave the legislative building at closing time.  The Horror!* It’s clear the lefties are seeking a scalp — or a severed head to mount on a pike at the…

Around the world with Bev and Keith

          Bev Perdue has three more months in office.  Yet, she is jetting off to the Far East: Gov. Bev Perdue is on her way to Japan to drum up business for the state. Perdue and state Commerce Secretary Keith Crisco are leading a delegation to the 35th annual Southeast U.S./Japan joint meeting in Tokyo, according to her office. While there, Perdue and commerce officials will meet with export clients and businesses seeking new investments. After he leaves Japan, Crisco will take a two-day business recruitment trip to China. “I look forward to reinvigorating some of…

OMG. (Is “she” STILL here???)

  Lame Duck Bev — who polls show is THE MOST unpopular governor in these here United States —  is trying HARD to prove she’s still relevant. She thought she was pretty smart in vetoing the recently passed $20.2 billion state budget.  It’s still not spending enough money, she says.  The problem is — this budget she just vetoed was basically a modification (adding mo’  money)  of the one passed LAST YEAR that she griped so much about.  So, unless Jones Street overrides her veto, we’re sticking with that budget from last year that makes the granolas gnash their teeth…

LITTLE LOVE for Bev as she heads out the door

  Democrat pollster Public Policy Polling has found that Lame Duck Bev is THE MOST UNPOPULAR governor in these here United States. The organization’s latest poll found that her disapproval was at 57% while her approval was at only 31 percent. You have to give Bev credit for one thing — she, unlike Walter Dalton, has bent over backwards to avoid a conflict of interest with her child’s employment.

Feds turn off the money spigot for long-term unemployed in NC

Remember when those highly compassionate souls — Bev Perdue, Barry Obama, et. al — told us that unemployment benefits NEEDED to be extended by 20 weeks (even though we have NO money to pay for it)?  The time limit was 79 weeks, but it got bumped to 99. Well, our “leaders” succumbed to the media browbeating and got it done.  North Carolina sunk deeper in debt  — borrowing money to pay for these extra benefits. Recently, we’ve been seeing these astounding media reports about how the economy is getting better and jobs are coming out of the woodwork.  Anyone with…

We look like Mississippi? (Well, YOU look like Joan Rivers.)

Well, our bumbling incompetent boss lady’s “tolerance” is showing in the wake of the marriage amendment vote.  She sounds like she has been hitting the Wild Turkey hard.  (Can someone please go find her husband, Walter Dalton, and have him haul her off to bed before she causes further embarrassment to him AND us?) Despite the fact that a large number of black voters cast votes FOR the amendment, our plastic-faced dingbat -of-a-boss-lady-til-December is comparing the amendment vote to life under ‘Jim Crow’ laws in Mississippi in the 1960s. I love the response from Mississippi’s lieutenant governor: […] The insulted…

Bev’s tax “deal” really 3-card monte scam taking NC taxpayers for a ride

Gov. Bev Perdue and GOP agree on gas tax —  Raleigh News & Observer headline, May 11 2012 So,  Lame Duck Bev’s steno pool in the N&O newsroom want us to believe that their girl is playing nice with GOP legislators on Jones Street on capping the gas tax.  She’s seen the light on tax cuts.  BUT — if you read deep into the story, you see that the gas tax is getting capped at 37.5 cents (down from 38.9).  WOO-HOO.  But Bev’s budget proposal calls for a sales tax increase — basically nullifying any savings for consumers with the…

Get over it. No — On second thought — GET OUT.

          Lame-duck Bev finally decided that she HAD to speak up on the man-on-man sex scandal at state Democrat Party HQ.   On Tuesday, she told the press they just need to“Get Over it.”  By Tuesday evening, someone had apparently gotten to her — put her in a headlock — and, um, “explained” to her that she IS the head of the Democrat Party and needs to step out front to try and stop the bleeding.  So,  we got a new story: The chairman of the state Democratic Party is expected to resign after an avalanche…

Corruption, Carolina-style 2012: “The facts are not true.”

      Wow.  I have to tuck that one away for the next time I get into hot water.   THAT is the defense put up by a state government official accused of corruption in an investigative piece by The John Locke Foundation’s Carolina Journal: Gov. Bev Perdue’s administration is conducting an internal review of a high-ranking state commerce official’s ties to a local nonprofit that went unreported on an ethics disclosure form, an inquiry that could reach even higher in the agency. Lame Duck Bev is “investigating’ a political crony / appointee.  This should be a <sarcasm> quite…

Raise taxes on us? How about getting Bev to DO HER JOB FIRST????

        Our Nobel Prize-winning,  Pulitzer prize-contending local paper here in Moore County is at it again — parroting the leftist views of its owners and making their Democrat masters in Raleigh proud.  Editorializing about Lame-Duck Bev’s demand for $$$ mo’ money $$$ for the public schools, the newsroom sees ONLY one solution: In calling for pay raises for teachers next year, Gov. Bev Perdue is speaking more from her heart than her head. Indeed, she may simply be grandstanding. Raises for teachers can come from one of only two sources. The first is a tax increase, and it…
