Exposing the expensive ‘green jobs’ myth

  Environmentalist rhetoric about the wonder of ‘green’ environmentally-friendly jobs is not matching up to reality.  The Washington Post, not exactly a conservative propaganda rag, has pointed out that, just two years into its existence, BarryO’s green jobs agenda has become an expensive failure: A $38.6 billion loan guarantee program that the Obama administration promised would create or save 65,000 jobs has created just a few thousand jobs two years after it…

Campaign 2011: Inside The Pilot’s endorsement deliberations

  Yes, Moore County.  Our thrice-weekly Pulitzer Prize winning local newspaper is in the midst of preparing its endorsements for the municipal elections in November.  The paper’s editorial staff has been conducting private interviews with each candidate. (It is interesting that the endorsements are already being prepped. The paper has provided very little coverage — beyond filing stories and one forum — on the various races to help educate their…

Alleged MSM trying to take Tillis to the woodshed

  Our state’s alleged mainstream media (MSM) has successfully swept under the rug Boss Bev’s rant (and the supporting audio tape) about suspending elections.  Now, they are focused on beating up state House Speaker Thom Tillis for his remarks on dealing with welfare fraud and the general out-of-control nature of state entitlement spending: The state ACLU and state Democrats were quick to criticize House Speaker Thom Tillis’s remarks on drug testing…

Boss Bev preps for her second taxpayer-funded Asian invasion

        Boss Bev has “The First (hen-pecked) Husband” packing the bags for a big taxpayer-funded trip to Japan and China.  Our buffoonish governor defends her participation in this trip as vital to saving North Carolina’s economy in these troubling times: Governor Beverly Perdue is headed to China next month on a trade mission she says will help boost the state economy. But some aren’t so sure the…

Southern Pines 2011: NIMBY ticket seeks Town Council majority

  We’ve reported on the Village Action Team-endorsed ticket of Cashion, Fiorillo and Parson in Pinehurst.   Now, in Southern Pines, it appears the hardcore anti-development crowd in Southern Pines is rallying its forces behind the mayoral candidacy of Chris Smithson and the council candidacies of Marsh Smith and David Woodruff. Marsh Smith has marked a lot of his campaign speeches with the slogan “No More Asphalt or Shingles.” (The…

Southern Pines 2011: Former mayors endorsing David McNeill

A regular reader of this blog called me today.  This person was doing business in downtown Southern Pines when they came across four former mayors of Southern Pines — Jane Clark, Frank Quis, Mike Fields, and Alex Bowness — posing together for a photograph. With this being election season, my source was a wee bit curious about this development. After some investigation, my source confirmed that the four former mayors…

Meet the puppetmasters pulling the strings of the ‘Occupy’ movement

    The allegedly mainstream media has been trying to paint the Occupy Wall Street, Occupy DC, Occupy Raleigh, etc.  movements as spontaneous acts of taxpayer frustration.  The Fayetteville Observer may have screwed up that plan with its coverage of  THIRTY people turning out Thursday as part of ‘Occupy Fayetteville’: Al Peuster, a retired Lutheran pastor in Fayetteville, said he organized the peaceful rally in support of the movement that…

Tea Party, meet The Flea Party!

Conservative columnist Ann Coulter’s latest work takes a thought-provoking, hilarious look at the Occupy Wall Street “movement” and the efforts by the alleged mainstream media and the Democrats to compare it favorably to the rise of The Tea Party in 2009: So far, the only major accomplishment of the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters is that they have finally put an end to their previous initiative, “Occupy Our Mothers’ Basements.” Oddly…

Herman Cain vs. BarryO: consider the possibilities

The left fawned over BarryO’s victory in 2008, describing the event as the coming of a ‘post-racial’ era in American history.   In 2012, we have the distinct possibility of a true post-racial moment in American politics: two black Americans battling it out under the standards of the two major parties for the American presidency. Herman Cain is everything BarryO is not.  He can talk — and make sense —…

Compromise = Doing EXACLY what the leftists want

Raleigh political consultant John Davis is trying REALLY hard to be taken seriously.  He sends out all of these emails BEGGING you to pay hundreds of dollars for a newsletter that he ends up giving away for free a week later.  Davis is described as  a Republican because he. apparently, used to lobby for a Raleigh-based business group.  He is such a dyed-in-the-wool rock-ribbed Republican that most all of his…
