  So says, until recently, Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jackson : Dallas stated that the party had spent $350K on Justice Edmunds race and his only regret was spending anything at all.  Hmmmm.  *Nice.* What's the point of even having a party if you're not going to fight the opposition or...

In an email from the NCAE Organize 2020 Caucus sent Monday evening, that probable wasn’t suppose to fall into my hands, it reads:

“We were inspired by the powerful organizing and social justice focus of the Chicago Teacher’s Union and have been working to bring similar energy to North Carolina.”


“This isn’t union-like activity. It’s union activity.”

Many teachers are fooled into believing this is a rally for them and their students but in reality we have ourselves a genuine union organizing

Also an interesting quote about teacher’s unions from a former president of two national teacher unions – Albert Shanker,

“When school children start paying union dues, that’s when I’ll start representing the interests of school children.”

Richard Maynes has it correct. I believe Dan Forest knows the difference and, as a state legislator myself, its often times good to attend events that you don’t quite agree totally with in order to find out what the other side is thinking. Energy issues are an important infrastructure issue but the “solar, wind farm” issue is nothing more than a scam on the rate payers and the tax payers. Often times to uncover a scam you need to “follow the money” but to uncover this scam but you also need to “follow the power generated” by these farms. These farms do generate plenty of power but the bare truth is that instead of being able to use it they just dump it. The reasons for this truth are more complicated than this post has room for but just imagine what does the power company do with an unpredictable power source at a time of day they least need it?

I have made it a point to fight against these solar mandates since I was elected in 2012. The solar situation in NC is driven by politics not economics and science. Troxhandler, above , has a grasp of the problem, for residential use solar can be a benefit but for others it is a waste of time and money. The key to the success and future of solar generated power is battery storage. For small residential use battery backup systems are available. For anything larger we DO NOT have the technology yet thus the big solar arrays (some call them solar farms) are producing power that the utility companies are basically buying and then dumping back into the ground. Utility companies are forced to buy the power at a cost point that insures the solar generating companies make a profit (in addition to state subsidies) and the rate payers are making up the difference so everyone makes a profit. The best way is always to let the free market solve these issues but sometimes politics gets in the way.

To answer Senator Tillis’ question I want both. Conservative principles give us that opportunity.

North Carolina's Conservative Voice

I have always viewed Civitas research and comments as a conservative standard, as one that mirrors the NC Party platform, however, I am very disappointed and more so completely baffled when Civitas Action (the arm of Civitas that grades state legislators on their “conservativeness”) refused to include in the grading this bill HB589! But what does get included in the grade, meaning that someone like myself and others, who regularly rank at the top of the list get graded down on, is the audacity of the legislature to put some kind on regulation on the body piercing/body implant/tattoo industry that is attacking our youth (making it seem ‘cool’ to do these things without sanitary conditions and without explaining to these wide eyed youth that what they are doing to their bodies can have permanent negative results). Please Civitas or Civitas Action show me on your sliding scale of conservativeness where both these issues rank. Maybe, as long as you are at it, put the HB2 vs HB142 issue on it also, you seem to have missed that one, or at least explain why you chose not to include it?
