Cultural Appropriation: *”Isn’t that special?”*

We’ve filled you in previously on the very “special” counsel to GOP legislative leaders.  From picking a fight with me, to bashing Donald Trump, to apparently blessing the works of our local social justice warriors, Brent Woodcox continues to amaze and dumbfound.   Some background…

Char-Meck schools go ‘gangsta’ on N. Meck taxpayers

Not so long ago, we were told how terrible it was to crack down on local governments.  (Something about bathrooms and cross-dressing.) Well, that apparently only applies if sane folks are hassling the liberal counter-culture. Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools has dropped a bomb on taxpayers in North…

Effort afoot to return controversial edu-crat to Lee County?

Dr. Jeff Moss has a way of stirring things up wherever he goes.  Until 2013, Moss had a stormy tenure as superintendent of schools in Lee County, North Carolina.  He left that position in  2013 to take the superintendent job in Beaufort County, South Carolina….

RINO rage over DPI’s Johnson

I was a little lukewarm about Mark Johnson when I first met him during the 2016 primary campaign.  But since he’s been in office, he’s done a bang-up job of getting on the last nerve of all the right people. Here’s the latest: The fight…

#ncga: It’s gettin’ all STUPID up in here.

Keith Poston, a guy who used to run communications for the state prison system when the Democrats ran Raleigh, is now the head guy for something called The Public School Forum of North Carolina — which is little more than a mouthpiece for all of…

#ncga: Charity calls out Tarte on his PORK

I thought it was unusual to see $200,000 tucked away in the recent budget agreement for “classroom supplies.”   Those are normally appropriations handled by local governing entities — city councils, county commissioners, and school boards. The budget agreement even cited a charity called DonorsChoose…

#ncga: The public schools as LANDLORD ???

Some of the same people who spent the last few days hollering about the schools being “starved”  NOW want the public schools managing and renting “affordable housing ” to teachers and other school employees. (*Holy Mr. Roper, Batman!*) Some Durham area Democrats filed HB 936…

#ncga: The price is NEVER right in the public education money chase

Nope.  Jones Street Republicans will not be joining Drew Carey on the stage.  (The union thugs won’t let them.) The drivebys have swamped us with lovey-dovey coverage of the union thug-orchestrated “Red for Ed” march on Raleigh.  Your little skulls full of mush got a…

Coffee, teeth-whitening, and now “thugs”: a liberal-triggering epidemic

Yikes!  There is no telling what will set off the granola-and-patchouli crowd these days.  Many times leftists will simply exaggerate and twist words to put conservatives on the defensive.  However, what they’re doing to state Rep. Mark Brody is out-and-out LYING. Here is what Brody…
