Yes, Democrats, Please Stand By Obamacare

There are so many fundamental problems with the Affordable Care Act, that I’ve long believed it is not designed to actually improve the insurance system in America, but to irreparably break it in order to usher in more direct government control of health care.

NC NAACP: God Wants Socialism

Moral Monday organizer and frequent keynote speaker Rev. William Barber has a familiar refrain in his sermons from the stage: the Republicans in the NC legislature are trying to move the state backwards.

Tillis Is In. Can He Win?

The NC Speaker of the House Thom Tillis has announced what many Tarheel pundits already assumed – that he’s running against US Senator Kay Hagan. Can the man who led the effort to turn the General Assembly Republican for the first time in a century beat a vulnerable Democrat? Of course, that question assumes he […]

Sequester Stupidity About Smart ‘Cuts’

Before I offer any comments, just take a moment to watch this clip, and let it sink in for a minute. Pay special attention to the comments at about 58 seconds.

In case you thought “talking points” was just a catch-phrase… it’s not. But rarely does the public get a peek behind the political veil like we’re getting now. In a 38-page memo leaked to the media, North Carolina progressives lay out the poll-tested line of attack against their Republican opponents. Read the entire memo here. First, kudos […]

Rubio’s Water & Rand’s Speech

Thank goodness the Associated Press was able to cut through the wonkish bromides, promises of greater things, and platitudes of excellence imbued in the State of the Union speech and the GOP response: Social media erupted with all sorts of jokes.
