In NC, the Governor giveth and the Governor taketh away
OK, so NC Governor Pat McCrory (R, allegedly) signs bills for Voter ID and restrictions on abortion clinics, but vetoes a bill requiring drug testing for welfare recipients? He claimed the bill was, among other things, “unfair” and did not help “fight drug addiction.” Ummm, Guv, the bill was not about fighting drug addiction, but about keeping our tax dollars from being used to buy | Read More »

NC State Court Judges are Critical in Redistricting Lawsuit
In 2011, North Carolina’s first GOP-led legislature since Reconstruction produced redistricting maps that significantly favor conservative candidates for the US House and both houses of the state legislature. Unbelievably, Eric Holder’s “Justice” Department actually pre-cleared the maps, which means they may survive a federal court challenge. However, liberal special interest groups like the “Southern Coalition for Social Justice,” whatever that means, have challenged the redistricting maps in | Read More »
Attention North Carolina Conservatives!
Dear NC Conservatives, There are many important races on this year’s ballot, but the most critical races may be those for North Carolina’s appellate courts.

While most candidates can raise funds all year long, | Read More »
A federal court incredulously holds that it is unconstitutional for voters of a state to amend their constitution to provide for traditional marriage only. An elementary school prohibits a student from giving out Valentines to his classmates because the Valentines contain a citation to a Bible verse. The current Administration now not only is going to order you to buy health insurance, but it is | Read More »

Rep. Etheridge (D – NC) Has Done This Before
From today’s online edition of the Southern Pines (NC) Pilot: A video of Rep. Bob Etheridge physically confronting a college student in Washington brought back unpleasant memories for one former Moore County resident.

When being “conservative” is not enough . . .
In the race for North Carolina Court of Appeals between Judge Rick Elmore and Steven Walker, being “conservative” is not enough. Both candidates are conservative. Both are registered Republicans. Both are fathers, active church members, and members of the NRA. Both candidates believe judges should interpret the law, not make law. So, what’s the key difference between Judge Elmore and Mr. Walker? Experience. First, | Read More »
New York = Clueless
I will never understand what goes through the minds of most New Yorkers at election time. Maybe it’s because I’m a Southern boy, but I just don’t get what those Yankees are thinking when they go into the voting booth. They vote for candidates who favor unions, higher taxes, more regulation, etc. Then they get mad when their state’s economy goes belly-up, and they move | Read More »
