Hawaii 6-0: Hawaii is in Asia?

  The media, Hollywood, and a lot of university faculty have raved since 2008 about what a brilliant president we have.  BarryO told us that he had visited 57 states (and had one more to go), and the media gave him a pass. Meanwhile, George W. Bush ( a Harvard…

        North Carolina’s elected prosecutors are seeking the legislature’s assistance in overturning one of the worst travesties to ever pass through Jones Street: The Legislature should act quickly to repeal a new law that gives death row inmates another way to challenge their sentences on the grounds…

DIAPERS FOR EVERYONE! D.C. Dems propose Pampers stimulus

        The Einsteins in Congress are at it again.  We have a $17 trillion federal debt, two wars, record  unemployment, and a devastating recession.  These geniuses think they have the answer to fix the country’s economic woes:  federal subsidies for purchasing diapers.

Chapel Hill cops jack up local OWS loonies …

        It just brings tears of joy to my eyes when cops manhandle lefties.  I’ll have to admit that it was a shock to see this happening in our state’s Loony Left HQ: A police tactical team of at least 20 police officers arrested eight demonstrators Sunday…

Ok, N&O: Which one is it?

    N&O reporter John Frank may be in danger of losing his job.  He breaks the news about Boss Bev’s “suspend the elections” fantasy, and now he is contradicting in-house wonderboy Rob Christensen.  In the N&O newsroom, EVERYONE knows it is verboten to report something that makes The Democrat…

Welcome Back, Parson?

Now that the dust has settled in the local municipal races, the new topic of discussion in political circles is who will be appointed to replace Pinehurst’s Nancy Fiorillo and Southern Pines’s David McNeill.  Both were promoted by voters from their respective council seats to the mayoral chair. Last week’s…

Alaska, Hawaii, and — uh — what’s the third one?

  Boy.   Rick Perry is getting raked over the coals by the alleged mainstream media and the political establishment for not remembering the third federal agency he would cut.  Perry has been a good sport about the whole thing.  He joked about it in the ensuing Wofford debate.  Perry…

Oh, goody. Some hate mail from the Occupy Wall Street crowd …

              Today, I had the rare treat of hearing from one of the intellectual giants in the Occupy Wall Street movement.  He was responding to my recent post on the proposed ‘Occupy Broad Street’ gathering in Southern Pines scheduled for November 19 (but recently…
