The Civitas Institute's 7-Point Conservative Agenda for General Assembly's Short Session

The General Assembly begins their even-year short session on May 9, and the right is helping us out a little bit with the pregame show. Here's the (John William Pope) Civitas Institute's agenda, as laid out in this piece in the North Carolina Conservative:

  • Eliminate taxes that they call "temporary;"
  • Enact the Taxpayer Protection Act (is this just TaBoR by another name?);
  • Kill the Gas Tax (I think we've been over this already);


Despite what Chairman Marfussssss has to say about my back-sliding heretical ways, I do find a certain peace in acts of contrition. They are good for the soul.

I apologize to Chairman Marfusssss for saying he's disgusting.
I apologize to the young Pope puppet for making fun of his Carolina Journal story today.
I apologize to the person at the airport for getting mad when he wouldn't let me on the plane that was still sitting at the jetway.
I apologize to my wonderful wife for spending too much time in blogland.
I apologize for wishing the US military would stage a coup.
I apologize to the earth for driving 40 miles today in a car by myself.

Why Did Charles Taylor & Others Not Speak Out? What is the real Truth?

Ninety % of the American People were NEVER told about the following Documents. I didn't even know they existed! Charles Taylor has been in Congress since 1990, Coble since 84, Haynes, Jones & Myrick since the early 90's. Burr, Dole, Haynes, Jones & McIntyre all serve on the Armed Services Committie. How come Charles Taylor has not pushed the issue for final accounting of John Hunter Crews III of Asheville & Larry Carl Jamerson of Rosman whose crash sites upon examination by US Forces produced no bodies! These are in his district!

North Carolina currently has 45 natives listed as POW-MIA. How come none of these Politicans NEVER once told us of this report? They have sat back and accepted a Presumtive finding of Death or other awnser is why. They should be Demanding for inspection teams to be allowed into these areas. As a Note, Nothing has changed, Vietnam still ranks high on the list of leading countries with the most Human Rights Violations!

Once More Democrats Let Circumstances Control Them

BlueNC has been advocating dealing with the Jim Black issue before he destroys the Democratic Party's electoral chances in this state. For months, our calls have fallen on deaf ears. Now the Winston-Salem Journal is reporting that Democrats have finally awoken to the problem:

A Democratic member of the N.C. House said yesterday that his colleagues should start planning for the possibility that House Speaker Jim Black could be indicted.

Crashing the Gate Tour

For getting Markos and Jerome to North Carolina (I will explain why this is important below), it looks like May will be the date from this on MyDD:

We are also in the works of adding a more stops in the South in early May. For the east coast leg, we have a lot more cities to add, so if you are anywhere within 8 hours of DC, go at it with helping to organize a tour stop in May.

From my earlier post describing the tour's desire to add dates and associated poll, it appears that most of our readers would like to have a book signing with the possibility of Brad Miller stopping by. I would like us to have a united plan for the tour; since I have not contacted any bookstores or Brad about appearing, please leave suggestions and contact information below. I will contact the bookstores (or coffee shops) and then set up an action plan to get all of us to suggest the same stop.

Friday Morning Action Plan

Don't pop the corks yet folks! This is not a done deal. I just got off the phone with Tinathan in the Communications office at the USDA Forest Service. This is still on the table and the comment period is still open until the 30th of March.

WE HAVE NOT WON THIS YET! She urged us to please keep the heat on and get those emails in to them as quickly as we can.

Anyone here think that Charles Taylor's office intentionally put this little bit of misinformation out there? You betcha!

More below the fold

National Forest Sale [Not] Nixed [Yet].

[UPDATEx2: it ain't over yet. See the comments.]

[UPDATE: this isn't new news. See the comments.]

Word that the proposed sale of national forest land is dead just hit my inbox. Included in the email was this tidbit, which can be summed up as "Charles Taylor was for the sale before he was against it."

“I cosponsored the Secure Rural Schools bill because so many counties in western North Carolina depend on the revenues,” said Taylor. “We can-and we will- reauthorize the program this year, but we will not sell off national forest lands to pay for it.”

I'm at work, so I'll have to leave the fact checking to the BlueNC community. Take it for what it's worth.
