#ncga: Legislatin’ is HAAAAAAARD.

  I know I couldn’t stand it.  All the lying, back-stabbing and outright thievery would produce some hellacious sensory overload.   Seriously, the way the system is currently set up — you can’t afford to be a state legislator unless you are: retired, independently wealthy,…

NC-03: Hangin’ with Lindsey and Don (and a few hundred others)

  I found this gem on Twitter last night:     In case you didn’t know, Eric Rouse is one of the gaggle of candidates seeking the GOP nomination for the Third Congressional District’s seat in  Congress.   If all you knew was what you…

Fight The Power! (Just, um, make sure you have a hall pass.)

  The plight of public school teachers has had a lot of sympathy across the political spectrum.  Unfortunately, radical leftists have grabbed the steering wheel and are on the verge of destroying  a lot of that goodwill.     The North Carolina Association of Educators…

We MUST spend MORE because we, um, CAN’T spend what we already have.

  Makes no sense, right?  But that’s state government — actually, GOVERNMENT — for you.   Democrats and their queen, Roy Cooper, are demanding that we foot the bill for MORE Medicaid spending for even MORE potential recipients.  But, hold the phone.  State auditor Beth…

Fiscal conservatism, WHERE ARE YOU?

  We’ve come to grips with it being in its death throes in Raleigh.  Let’s see how it’s doing in DC in the Trump era:   The federal government spent $1,822,712,000,000 in the first five months of fiscal 2019, the most it has spent in…

N&O’s selfie-queen is ALL FOR refusing to cooperate with federal law enforcement

  In many places, THAT is called “obstruction of justice” or “obstruction of law enforcement personnel.”  To today’s liberals inside and outside the drive-by media, it’s the new Civil Rights movement. *Pedro and Juanita swam and walked a long way to get here.  The least…

More, um, “fun” with the NCGOP treasurer

    Jason Lemons is a busy guy.  He’s chairman of the Harnett County Board of Education.  He oversees the finances for the Harnett County GOP and its building fund.  AND he’s the treasurer for the North Carolina Republican Party itself. We told you earlier…

Stupid. Big Mouth. Patently dishonest. (Not much has changed.)

  It always insults my intelligence to see big-time  marketing pros peddling something to me as new and improved — when, in fact, it is pretty much the same as it always was and hasn’t exactly been improved.   Seeing THIS on Facebook the other…

#ncgop: STILL paying her to run for office. STILL paying for Robin’s airplane.

  Barbara Jackson got thrown under the bus before the first early vote got cast in her reelection bid to the state Supreme Court.  We’re now getting frantic  emails about  how the turbulent 2018 election took a toll on NCGOP  finances.  Let’s take a moment…

#ncga: House leaders put anti-Folwell bill on fast track

  As it turns out, the House Insurance committee will not get a crack at HB 184, a bill drafted by hospital lobbyists to hobble treasurer Dale Folwell’s efforts at transparency and cost-control with the state employees health plan. The bill got rammed through the…
