No profiles in courage for NCGOP in DC

  North Carolina’s Republican Members of Congress have proved — once again — that keeping Speaker John Boehner happy is more important than looking out for the folks struggling through a wretched economy back home. On Wednesday, 48 Republican members of the US House joined…

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…

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…

9/11: Why we should never forget. Why we should keep fighting.

Job creation and the political silly season ….

He wants your money AND your TV time ….

First, President Barry wants to speak on television Wednesday — at the same time as a GOP presidential debate.  That idea gets nixed — so he tries to get some TV time on Thursday.  The problem with Thursday — that is the night that NFL…

A drive-by sliming, courtesy of the N&O and Politico ….

It is astounding how much more press coverage and scrutiny the current occupant of the 2nd congressional district seat, Renee Ellmers (R), is getting than her predecessor, Bob (Who are you?) Etheridge (D) did. ( I am SURE it could not have anything to do…

Renee Ellmers “grows in office” …

That spells BIG trouble for us, fellow taxpayers. You see, The New York Times — like The Raleigh News & Observer — does not care for ANYTHING even remotely conservative. In either of those publications, if you see a mention of a conservative’s name, you…

North Carolina’s “Monty Hall” Republicans in Washington …

The new majority in the state legislature has been a pleasant surprise for North Carolina conservatives, who have stewed for years about the spending smorgasbord on Jones Street.  We have been seeing a lot of principled conservatism and common-sense legislation coming out of the legislature…
