Navy to NC fisheries: Drop dead

I'm an ex Navy guy and have plenty of first hand experience with how the Navy bespoils the environment and wastes public money. I also know they honestly don't give a damn about what they screw up, as long as they can get more money to buy more technology and satisfy more defense contractors along the way. So any "reports" they have about the impacts of their activities should be taken with a sea full of salt. Today's N&O nails their latest gambit for what it probably is: pseudo-science.

The evidence is mounting that the Navy's proposed 660-square mile sonar training range off the coast of North Carolina would pose unacceptable environmental dangers. There are also disturbing indications that the Navy's own environmental impact study is woefully inadequate. A chorus of scientists says the Navy needs to set higher standards for its research if the study is to have any scientific value.

Who Should Own Elections: Voters or Businesses?


RALEIGH — North Carolina’s very own right wing think tank announced today it opposes the expansion of public financing of elections beyond judicial races. Saying that such a move would “only hurt taxpayers and the democratic process,” the John Locke Foundation policy has trumped up yet another sham policy report to push their free-market-at-any-cost agenda. And in this case, the "cost" is the freedom and fairness of our elections.


Winston-Salem Journal | Taylor: Cost for Flight 93 memorial has grown

"Taylor does pull it out every time, and everything I have seen indicates he will be able to hold on again this year," said Chris Cooper, a professor of political science at Western Carolina University. "He is viewed as doing a very good job of bringing home the pork," he said.

Except we know that's not true. Let's make some noise on this.

TPJ endorses Robin Hudson

This e-mail from The Political Junkies speaks for itself:

In the four years that The Political Junkies has published, this is the first time that we have felt is necessary to write North Carolina readers individually, But, on Tuesday night NC Democrats could be asking, “What happened?”

One critical seat on the North Carolina State Supreme Court is at stake Tuesday. Two Democrats, in a four candidate “non-partisan” field, are vying to make the November “non-partisan” general election.


The e-mail goes on to say what I've been asserting all along:

The other Democrat is Bill Gore, but Bill Gore is not a Democrat as most in our Party view a Democrat. He is openly running on a right wing agenda that competes with any radical Republican. Gore has unabashedly demonstrated that he is a strict constructionist, who does not believe in the separation of church and state, and who would vote against Roe v. Wade, which recognizes a woman’s reproductive rights.

Recently, a couple of months ago, State Senator John Snow-D, 50th Dist, bestowed upon me the great Honor, Prividilige & Responsibility of authoring a resolution and amendment to be drafted into law and go into the NC General Statutes regarding Stolen Medals, The wearing & display of Medals not earned and display of licence plates that a DD-214 Discharge summary does not say you are entitled to. It would make it a felony to do so especially in regarding to the medal of Honor. Now the Republicans don’t seem interested in backing it. Before I tell you what you can do to help let me share the following story with you.
