Could an Indiana scenario happen in The Carolinas?

Sadly, I think the answer is NOT ANYTIME SOON. Hoosier voters have put up solid conservative Mike Pence as their gubernatorial nominee.  They rose up against 36-year RINO establishment US Senator Dick Lugar and tossed him out — replacing him with a solid conservative. If…

YET ANOTHER EXAMPLE of when being Republican DOES NOT MEAN being conservative

        Well, the U.S. House has voted to reauthorize the U.S Import-Export Bank for another year for $40 billion.   That’s right, billions to do business for ONE YEAR.   Here’s the low-down from Businessweek: The House is set to extend the…

L’affaire LaRoque Parte Deux: Le Recount

    Not so fast, Thom. The mission to get rid of at least one of the two monkeys on Thom Tillis’s back has hit a bump in the road. Initially, embattled Republican legislator Stephen LaRoque of Kinston  had conceded his  primary race Tuesday and…

Let the boycotts begin !!!!

            Predictably, the compassionate, tolerant granolas are going ape over The Tar Heel State’s approval of the marriage amendment yesterday.  After you weed through all the nasty “backwards,”  “hillbilly,”  “redneck,” “barefoot and toothless,” and “bible-thumper’ insults from the tolerance crowd,…

Waldo chokes Boom-Boom; takes on McCrory next

Our translucent, barely-visible lieutenant governor Walter Dalton risked life and limb seeking the gubernatorial nod against former congressman, sidewalk wrestler, and all around nice guy Bobby “boom boom” Etheridge. That hard work paid off handsomely on Tuesday — thanks to a lot of help from…

If you agree with me, Go vote today. If you don’t agree with me, find something else to do …

There has been a lot of confusion about the marriage amendment. Remember, voting FOR the amendment is a setback for those who want to legalize gay marriage.  It doesn’t ban anything.  It doesn’t stop gays from giving each other power of attorney or naming each…
