Moore endorses Perdue

Thank you, Treasurer Moore.

Via email.

Dear Friend,

As you know, Bev Perdue and I had a tough, spirited primary campaign. And while the outcome was not what we had hoped for, one thing is clear: the differences between Bev Perdue and me pale in comparison to our differences with Pat McCrory.

Our country and our state are at a crossroads. This November's election will have a dramatic impact on how we meet the many challenges facing us. So many of the issues that Bev and I both believe in – economic opportunity for all North Carolina families ... world-class public schools…health care for every child in our state ... and securing our energy future – are at stake in this election.

Kissell Triples Cash on Hand, Hayes Doubles Expenditures

Teacher and congressional candidate, Larry Kissell, has narrowed the money gap with Multi-millionaire congressman, Robin Hayes. The gap is still huge, but the great news is Larry Kissell is not only in a better position in the polls at this point this cycle, but he has five times the staff to run his ground game, three times the cash on hand and Robin Hayes has more than doubled his expenditures in order about even with Larry.

Open Thread: if a blogger falls in the forest does she make a sound?

There was no open thread so I made my own. Because I don't have to live like a refugee (I saw Tom Petty last Saturday).

I want to meet NC bloggers I haven't met yet.

I bet there are a lot of good blogs in North Carolina that ought to be more widely read.

I wonder how bloggers can reach out to a larger audience without having to spend all their time link-strumpeting.

I made this page so that bloggers could potentially find me. I don't know how exactly how they will find me, but at least the form is now there to be found:

Doubts about Dole

The way I see Liddy Dole is simple: She's a three time loser. First she drove the American Red Cross into the ground. Then she displayed extraordinary fundraising incompetence as Queen of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. And now, working with the Decider, she has gotten the US mired in never-ending debt, never-ending war, and a full-fledged economic meltdown.

Can it get any worse?

Thank you David Price

I would like to thank Rep. Price for his support for closing down the School of the Americas and his co-sponsorship of HR 1707, legislation that would suspend operations at the School of the Americas, renamed WHINSEC, and investigate the history of human rights abuses and failed policies of the institution.

Of the 125 co-sponsors of this bill, Rep. Price is the ONLY NC member of congress to put their name on the line.

The School of the Americas (SOA), in 2001 renamed the “Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation,” is a combat training school for Latin American soldiers, located at Fort Benning, Georgia.
