A Watauga Conservative has an article about Congress Critter Virginia Foxx (NC-05) using twitter, but did not include a link to her account. I am also on twitter.
The Carolina Stompers have noted that the cost of the Coronation, I mean Inauguration of Obama will cost 110 million dollars!!! That's nearly 30 cents per person in the country.
The Inner Banks Eagle also comments on it, noting that conservative has lost it's meaning. I can only add that it lost it's meaning long ago, and certain proof was that John McCain called himself a conservative with near impunity in this last election cycle, and most "conservative" bloggers let him. I did not, and also noted that the majority of active Republicans are not conservative.
The problem is that most people think of themselves as conservative in our party because they get the warm fuzzies about President Reagan, and neglect to actually study conservatism, or it's history.
Insight on Freedom, one of my favorite North Carolina bloggers, has a piece called "The Attack of the "useful Idiots" Against Israel". To which I can only add, Amen, brother!
The Pirates Cove comments that the latest message from Osama to Obama sounds like something you'd find on a lefty blog. Those are my thoughts exactly.
Think Tank Bloggers
The Buncombe County GOP is asking for people to join their online community, which is on the same platform I have mine on, Ning. If you wish to create an online community of like-minded people for fun or debate...there is no better way than the Ning platform. I am a memeber of about a dozen or so Ning communities, and you can find more about Ning on their blog...and their latest post trumpets the creation of 40,000 new networks in 14 days!
The NCGOP blog, Seeing Red Again, has issued the latest e-Newsletter, and has started a facebook page to go with a new website they will be launching on inauguration day.
Jeff Taylor, on the John Locke Foundation blog, The Meck Deck, pays tribute to Ricardo Montalban on his passing.
The John Locke Foundation blog, The Wild West, wonders if anyone likes Asheville's Master Downtown Plan.

Legacy Media Bloggers
Capital Beat has video of the new North Carolina Governor, Bev Perdue in Washington DC, presumably to line up at the trough.
Commies, Lefties and Progressives, Oh My!
The Action Center for Justice has posted information on where terrorist-loving lefties can gather online and plan some direct action in support of "palestinians".
AshVegas has noted the Gannett "one week layoff" for Asheville Citizen-Times employees this quarter, and has linked to a piece from Asheville on the Ground about a "tree slaughter". I guess it is a good thing that these people have no idea how many trees i have "slaughtered", and worse yet, piled up and burned...with the sap still running... [Video to follow!]
I wish I could get to Asheville more often...these lefties NEED SOME SERIOUS MOCKING!!!
Cecil Bothwell is urging the lemming-lefties to get CFL light bulbs with minimal Mercury so they won't get too much Mercury poisonong when they break...
On Pam's House Blend, Pam Spaulding is now whining about the late pick of a gay bishop to speak at an Obama inaugaration event. I'm thinking that these people won't be happy unless Obama held an official gay orgy on the podium while he was being sworn in.
The Progressive Democrats of North Carolina has a copy of a letter by David Parker, who is running to be the new chair of the Democrat Party of North Carolina.
The Scrutiny Hooligans have a post on the committee assignments for Senator Kay Hagan, and Gordon Smith has a piece on BlogAsheville on chances to participate in the communist Downtown Master Plan for Asheville, NC.
Well, that's it for now. If you are one of the bloggers and don't like your category...tough, I have made my call.
