One MOORE entrant for the state senate GOP primary?

      Stuff keeps coming in over the transom about the state senate seat being vacated by retiring Republican Harris Blake of Pinehurst. Recent redistricting moved Blake and Moore County from the current district to District 29, which includes Randolph County and is currently…

Pinehurst’s Cummings to pursue state Senate seat?

My spies within Raleigh political circles, and on the ground here in Moore County and throughout the Sandhills region, tell me retired physician Robin Cummings of Pinehurst is seriously eyeing the state Senate seat currently held by Senator Harris Blake (R-Pinehurst), who is retiring at…

Leftists demand a free lunch

      We’ve got  real good case study going on right now illustrating how disingenuous leftists and their comrades in the alleged Mainstream Media (MSM) can be when they are out to get someone. In today’s edition of our local paper here in Moore…

Stam goes into the belly of the beast, gets gnawed on

Seriously, Mr. Leader.  What good did you think could come from going to Chapel Hill to defend the gay marriage ban constitutional amendment? Going over there was akin to a cat accepting a party invitation from a pack of pit bulls.  It’s like trying to…

Hi Mom! Look at Me! I’m President!

    OK.  This screams “photoshop.”  MSNBC — the chief stenographers for BarryO — posted this photo without commenting on its bizarre nature.  (Some of the commenters on their web site spoke up.) Some sites expressed suspicion, believing they were being “punked” with a  bogus…

Campaign 2011: PAC to influence Pinehurst elections?

I was trolling around recently on the Moore County Board of Elections web site.  (I know — I lead a very exciting life.) One entry among the campaign report listings that caught my eye was “Village Action Team” — whose report shows it was formed in June…

If you talk the talk, you better walk the walk

    I hate to say it, but I am leaning toward the N&O on this one.  During the 2010 campaign, U.S. Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-Dunn) attacked her opponent, then-incumbent Bob Etheridge, for his use of taxpayer-funded mailings to constituents.  The N&O is reporting that…

Attacking others’ success to distract from Barry-O’s failures

  Has anyone else noticed the hard left turn of the Democrats’ rhetoric recently?  They’re panicking.  Their big government, redistributionist policies are pushing the country into a bigger, deeper economic mess. Many of the people who fell for Barry-O’s fancy footwork in 2008 are experiencing…

More taxes for thee, but not for me

  Superstar, super-rich investor Warren Buffett is all over the alleged Mainstream Media (MSM) for allowing his name to be attached to Barry-O’s latest scheme to jack up taxes in this nightmare of an economy.  Mr. Buffett believes that he, and other financially successful Americans,…

Huh? What? A listening tour?

The campaign silly season is upon us.  Politicians are running all over the countryside kissing babies and telling us how bad the other guys are. Thanks to the Tea Party — which the MSM loves to tell us is so extreme, racist, hated, etc. —…
