#ncpol: Drive-by media dumbness.

  I know they’re all bleeding money and having to cut staff.  But sometimes — sometimes — you deserve better than  what they’re doling out.     Our local paper here in Moore County is a special case.  They are owned by the people who…

Evaluating something on MERIT = Political Extremism. (So sayeth Scowlin’ Rob & Blinkin’ Chris.)

WRAL commisar Jim Goodmon has sicced his heavily-subsidized handmaidens Blinkin’ Chris and Scowlin’ Rob on our state’s lieutenant governor.  And let me tell ya — Goodmon’s gals produced a doozy.  They’ve produced sentences linking concepts like Dan Forest and The Soviet Union.

Lefties LOSE IT over Senator Tillman’s charter school proposal

  It’s absolutely refreshing to hear an elected official championing the supremacy of the free market over the iron-fist of the bureaucracy.  Legislation introduced by state Senator Jerry Tillman (R-Randolph) seeks to enhance innovation within public education and diminish the influence of the education establishment….
