Kudos to Goolsby on Racial Justice Act

      While the state House leadership is talking about watering stuff down, slowing things down, appeasing the Democrats to “get stuff done,”  at least one state Senator is out there slugging away on behalf of principle and DOING THE RIGHT THING. Senator Thom…

Ban bare boobs. Legalize Pot. (The Carolina Comeback?)

    OK.  We’re billions in debt.  HHS is in shambles literally and fiscally.  ObamaCare is breathing down our neck from DC, as is an effort to wipe out our Second Amendment rights.  DC has raised taxes on us and put us, as a nation,…

Turf wars and other tripe

Skip Stam: Statist Troublemaker?

  Some disturbing reports are coming over the transom about the former NC state House majority leader recently banished to purgatory (a/k/a the post of speaker pro tem).  Apparently, state Rep. Paul “Skip” Stam is not too fond of grassroots efforts to fight nasty overreaches…

The latest from the ‘It Needed to Be Said’ Department …

          The “rules” of political correctness suggest that white folks are to merely sit back and TAKE whatever nonsense scam artists like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and NC’s very own William “Jabba The Hutt” Barber dish out.  State Rep. Michael Speciale…

McCrory / Wood presser: kudos for calling out Medicaid waste, but new questions raised

A little more needed in NC ObamaCare fight

        House AND Senate leaders are being cheered by grassroots activists for introducing legislation that offers AT LEAST SOME resistance to ObamaCare.  The NCGA legislation orders work on the health exchange web site STOPPED, and seeks to have the federal grant solicited…

The Tenth Amendment rides again in Raleigh

      The Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution — which basically says, if it ain’t specifically in The Constitution, it’s a state matter — has been rediscovered by leaders in North Carolina state government.  And the media and their lefty comrades are pissed….
