#ncpol: Lefties,bathrooms, passports and the “intersex” thing

Those of us out here in the real world who believe something as radical as “Those born male ARE male, and those born female ARE female” are regularly savaged as bigoted pigs by the civility crowd over there on the left side. Democrats are making…

Civitas and The John Locke Foundation have long billed themselves as non-partisan, conservative watchdogs looking out for the interests of the taxpayer.  They went hard after former Democrat governors Mike Easley and Bev Perdue.  But when it comes to Republican Pat McCrory?  *CRICKETS.* Both organizations…

#ncga: Mommy state alive and well in GOP-run House

*Uncle Timmy wants you to eat your vegetables.* It really is a shame that, in an overwhelmingly Republican chamber, you get run over and beat down for daring to question subsidies for small businesses.  But THAT is where we are:  A group of House Republicans…

Polls show problems for Burr & McCrory (But, hey. We fired Hasan!!!)

The Civitas Institute — a subsidiary of Variety Wholesalers and The McCrory for Governor campaign — has put out a new poll that should be raising red flags for all of those smug NCGOPe types strutting around all smug about just having fired a black…
