Getting Rooked--The Spag Report
January 1st, 2013 -- 9:51 PM

America just got rooked by both parties. There will be no debt reduction and the can is kicked down the road again for my kids to pay or until it all comes crashing down like Greece, whichever comes first. So much for all of that campaign talk about a "balanced approach" to debt reduction- how about "no approach?" The rich get soaked a little more, but that isn't even close to the heart of my concern. That was just "boob bait for Bubba's" and assorted other morons who fell for the idea that raising taxes on 1% of the population...

Fiscal cliff deal: A slap to the face of taxpayers--Greensboro Guardian
January 1st, 2013 -- 9:16 PM

Among those who believe, as I do, that Washington’s problem is excessive spending rather than insufficient revenue, the fiscal cliff deal is the equivalent of a smack in the face. Our position—that government undertakes too much and consequently, spends too much–is premised on the Constitution, and specifically, Article I, Section 8, which details most of [...]

Black-eyed peas 'n greens for a lucky Southern New Year's feast--Eating up Greensboro
January 1st, 2013 -- 9:12 PM

black-eyed peas served felafel style
Felafel-style black-eyed peas garnished with aioli and scallion.
Despite the fiscal cliff, we are looking forward to a prosperous 2013, thanks to a dinner of black-eyed peas, collard greens--and fried chicken and cornbread--at Giovanna DeLorenzo's (aka Neighbor Pal).

Best fried chicken, lightly coated, crisp, not greasy.
Giovanna served up the traditional Southern meal for New Year's with flair.

The collards had just the right texture, acidity and heat.

The flavorful black-eyed pea mixture was a delicious surprise. A new take on felafel, it was fried up in panko-coated patties and served with aioli and garnished with chopped scallion.

The fried chicken was in a class by itself. [A secret DeLorenzo family recipe.]

A Liberal Manifesto--Vie de Malchance
January 1st, 2013 -- 1:05 PM

The first day of 2013 is a good time to reflect on issues the left should support if the Democratic Party weren’t captured only with the Republican Party by corporatists. I agree with most of them even though a current path toward implementation does not exist. From Bob Kall at OpEdNews: -end corporate personhood. Establish [...]

It Only Took Perkins A Year--East Greensboro Performing Arts Center
January 1st, 2013 -- 12:45 PM

To figure out what the rest of Greensboro knew all along: Greensboro neither wants nor needs GPAC. We don't envy Durham's pathetic little 4000 seat PAC, we have a 25,000 seat Coliseum! And an amphitheater! Durham ain't squat! Perkins says he's not married to GPAC, wants to hear other ideas. But I know for a fact he and the rest of the Greensboro City Council already know about the Downtown

Is GPAC Already Hurting Existing Arts Venues?--East Greensboro Performing Arts Center
January 1st, 2013 -- 9:45 AM

From today's News & Record: "Triad Stage will start the new year with a clean financial slate, if it receives $13,191 more in contributions by Friday to erase its deficit. " Just think of the money Triad Stage could have raised if almost a $Million Dollars of combined public and private money had not been wasted on the GPAC folly in the last 12 months.
