Of roaches and statist mooches
A friend of mine in the pest control business told me once about the importance of spraying a whole building evenly at one time. Spraying one section, leaving, and then coming back later for more, only causes the critters to scatter to the unsprayed parts of the building for relief.
Statists who spend their entire lives on the taxpayer’s dime — while criticizing the rest of us who actually work for a living — operate in much the same way. Eliminate their little niche in the bureaucracy, and they’ll simply pop up somewhere else.
Case in point — Gene Nichol at the UNC Law School. We, and others, have written extensively about this guy. He got hired — for six figures — to run the school-sanctioned scam set up for John Edwards in between presidential runs. Nichol appeared to do very little teaching but a whole lot of agitating of Republican legislators (who just happen to fund his school).
When questions started being raised about his activities, Nichol tried hard to transform himself into a free-speech martyr. (Suggesting that radical leftism is being stomped out on North Carolina campuses is a bit of a stretch.) And we all know how conservative speakers get treated when they dare to set foot on the UNC campus. (Loving, open arms. Yadda. Yadda.)
Well, a prominent jurist in our state — who happens to be a fan of our site — sent along this copy of the latest edition of the UNC law school newsletter:

The problem is that the so-called “GOP takeover” in Raleigh is the biggest political joke of modern times. Gene Nichol and UNC continue to thumb their noses at the GOP because the legislature made atrocious appointments to the Board of Governors which in turn made disastrous appointments to the UNC Board of Trustees. The liberals just installed a radical leftist attorney from the Smith Anderson law firm in Raleigh to lead the UNC Law School. Republicans have no idea what is going on. It is almost too painful to watch. The GOP has simply blown it.
what else is new when all you pay attention to is the flow of money and the monied who make you feel important?
And I am assuming Mr. Nichol’s wife Betty George is still knocking down $407,000tax payer $ per year over at UNC hospital? Also, I am quite sure his $1,000,000 beach house at Emerald Isle is in good order. The governor should suggest using Nichol’$ beach house for poor inner city blacks and Hispanics. After all the tax payers are paying the bills.
You righties ought to know by now that having progressives in your party helps the progressives in our party. It does it on environmental issues, like having those two progressive Republican consultants Dee Stewart and Paul Shumaker on the payroll of our hard core environmental movement to help push President Obama’s green energy agenda.
It also has the same impact in pushing the progressive agenda in education. Remember when progressive Republican legislator Nelson Dollar pushed one of our progressive Democrats for the UNC Board of Governors, saying he was ”black and had been there before”? That was a good example of getting a key progressive appointed and using your guys to do it. It always amazes me that we Democrats always cut out your conservatives when we have the power to do it, but your Republican progressives give away the store to our Democrat progressives. It is getting to be like one big happy progressive family.
Oh, and thanks, Nelson. Your help for the progressive cause is greatly appreciated.
Nelson Dollar is “Exhibit A” for the GOP disaster in dealing with the radical leftists in the UNC system. Republican legislators have no idea what to do in reforming the UNC system. Having recently graduated from UNC-CH, I saw the liberal brainwashing and intimidation of conservative students first hand. We thought GOP control would bring us some relief. Were we ever wrong. It’s worse now than ever. My friends on other UNC campuses tell me the same thing. Thanks for nothing, Republicans!
The left wing loons and America haters are alive and well. They have tenure on the nation’s college campuses.
KUDOS to you, Jackson, for seeing thru this tripe. I can tell you had a good upbringing.
As the old Crosby, Stills & Nash song goes: “teach your children well”. Let them know how they lucky they are to live in the greatest country on earth. Prepare them for what’s in store for them when they go to college!
Maybe we can transplant some spines into the Republicans, here and in Washington!
