Allah Akbar, y’all!

Blinkin’ Chris Fitzsimon and his partner-in-crime Scowlin’ Rob Schofield recently  lead a chorus of drive-bys in needling State senate president Phil Berger about alleged public school money woes in his home county of Rockingham.

You can’t do THAT! WHY, it’s — um, er — RACIST !!!! (Yeah, that’s it. Racist.)

The UNC Board of Governors is holding hearings on whether to consolidate or cancel out all of these state-funded “institutes” and “centers” based on the UNC system campuses. Lefties don’t like to think about the possibility of cutting money for anything — except stuff like…

#ncga: So, how’d that going-to-jail-with-Rev.-Fatass thing work out for you?

The drive-bys salivated over every word that poured out of Bill Barber’s lips.  He was going to make the extreme right-wingers on Jones Street pay, and that was JUST FINE by them.  We got told that the extreme agenda of the Republican majority was going…

Chmn of state common core review commission — apppointed by Gov. Pat — is BIG FAN of Common Core

A drive-by speaks up on Voucher judge’s drive-by jurisprudence

Judge’s voucher ruling helps statists tighten their grip on our kids

I am still shaking my head in disbelief at Judge Hobgood’s ruling that school vouchers are “unconstitutional.”  It was more disheartening and appalling to see photos and footage of lefty activists jumping up and down, hugging, and crying tears of joy in reaction to the…
