Uh-oh, I’ve got mail. (Hint: LESBIAN RESEARCH)

Now, if THAT doesn’t get your attention. Here’s a piece of mail from UNC-CH administration that — somehow — made it into our inbox: From: Kaplan, Roger Jay <kaplan@unc.edu> Sent: Monday, May 1, 2017 5:44 PM To: Provost’s Committee On LGBTQ Life Subject: Summer Grants for Students   Please…

SCC’s Dempsey: using college email to lobby employees on election choices?

There’s nothing like having your boss strongly recommend a course of action.  *If I like my paycheck, THAT is the way I need to proceed.* Some employees of Sandhills Community College have apparently grown concerned about an email they received from their boss this week…

Gov. Pat’s lawyer: McCrory AGAINST HB2 before he was FOR it

As one can imagine, a lot of emails get leaked to the media in the final weeks of an election. It appears The Charlotte Observer got their hands on some from the governor’s chief counsel: Three days after Gov. Pat McCrory signed House Bill 2,…

When WEENIES attack: The manufactured outrage over Dallas’s email

I must admit that it’s a bit awkward to find myself defending NCGOP executive director Dallas Woodhouse. Just about every move he makes is worthy of employment termination and heaps of editorial scorn.   But then, I observe that imbecile brother of his.  Then I…

Michele Nix locked out TOO?

Apparently, so: We told you about chairman Harnett being locked out of his party email account last night.  Now, it appears the vice-chairman has gotten the same treatment.  Looks like we have a true coup going down at HQ, boys and girls.

Moore County government email addresses found among data released in Ashley Madison hack

Yep.  Our tax dollars at work.  First of all, signing up for a web site that encourages and enables adultery is kind of dubious.  But using your WORK EMAIL ADDRESS to do it ???? That is a special kind of stupid.   NC Capital Connection has…

Ellmers, Foxx, Hudson vote with Boehner (and a bunch of Dems) to preserve NSA surveillance overreach

      I’m a big fan of empowering law enforcement and the military to hunt down and destroy foreign bad guys trying to do harm to innocent  Americans.  I’m NOT a big fan of allowing  DC to have wide open, warrantless access to everyone’s…

The latest from the ‘It Needed to Be Said’ Department …

          The “rules” of political correctness suggest that white folks are to merely sit back and TAKE whatever nonsense scam artists like Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and NC’s very own William “Jabba The Hutt” Barber dish out.  State Rep. Michael Speciale…
