ID for voting, enforcing immigration is BAD. ID for buying guns, beer is GOOD. So sayeth The Sock Puppet.

Gov. Pat McCrory took our advice and signed that voter ID bill passed by the General Assembly.  Kudos to him.  The bill didn’t go as far as I would like to see it go, but something is better than nothing. Of course, the leftists went…

Pat McCrory endorses Common Core

  It’s getting harder and harder to defend our new Republican governor here in North Carolina. First, we were told that we need to leave ObamaCare alone, because it is “the law of the land.”  Then, we get some hand-wringing about the size of tax…

Cookies, Cake & Child Abuse (YUM)

      Well, we had about six or so feminazis standing outside the governor’s mansion on Monday waving signs and hollering.  Gov. Pat’s team thought it would be funny to take them some cookies. If they would have left it alone, that pack of…

Beaufort County, TOO ???? (The ABCs of meddling)

I am sensing a pattern here :   Beaufort, Craven, Davidson.    (You folks in Edgecombe, Forsyth, Franklin, Granville and Guilford better get ready.) Controversy between a county GOP organization and the state GOP has been becoming quite common.  It now appears to be rearing…

So THIS is what the underside of the bus looks like

An awful lot of us on the right worked hard to get Pat McCrory into the governor’s mansion in Raleigh.  There was  a lot of excitement in 2012 about the potential for fundamental change a GOP majority and GOP governor could bring to state government….

Don’t be afraid. He’s only lookin’ out fo’ yo’ chil’ren …

The legacy media is up in arms because Gov. Pat was apparently too busy to receive some petitions from a group of school children. When you find out that the children were planted there by Bobby “Boom Boom” Etheridge and Progress NC (led by former…
