His buddy is moving on to bigger things. But Rob Schofield is still here, foaming at the mouth over a web site he helped put out of its misery: […] Art Pope’s Civitas Institute is out with another “you can’t make this stuff up” doozy this morning. The fun folks…

Government bullies and the First Amendment

When you take cash from the government at any level — even though they confiscated it from you and your friends and family initially — you should expect to be giving up SOME freedom. But two different cases here in North Carolina showcase government entities possibly overstepping their bounds. First,…

How is THIS not party disloyalty?

We’ve all heard about the railroading the ‘Haywood Five’ got from NCGOPe leaders.  Sharing a humorous libertarian T-shirt design on Facebook.  Questioning the RINO tendencies of a local elected Republican.  THAT kind of thing.  Now, it appears our two Republican US senators are joining the Swamp effort to sink the…

#ncgop: Fur flies (and so do emails) in Woodhouse-Womack spat

Here’s reason #798 that I do not donate a single dime to my alma mater: George Washington University’s International Affairs school has introduced a gender quota to ensure that no guest speaker panels are exclusively male. A new policy, established by Elliot School of International Affairs Dean Reuben Brigety on July…

No longer your Dad’s (or WFB’s) National Review

National Review turned me on to conservatism in the mid-80s.  It was refreshingly anti-establishment and full of all kinds of thought-provoking stuff. A lot of the rebels of those days have left the magazine.  William F. Buckley passed on through the pearly gates.  And the magazine has been turned over…

#ncpol: ‘Law Enforcement group’, eh?

Sometimes the bovine defecation peddled by McClatchy makes me laugh out loud.  Here’s one recent example: All traces of Confederacy must go, NC law enforcement group says Wow.  That’s pretty strong.  Who is taking this stand?  The Fraternal Order of Police?  The PBA?
