Being an F.O.T (Friend Of Timmy) pay$$$$$ …

It’s good to be a Friend Of Timmy™. Clayton Somers should know.  He is the Democrat operative hired to be the Republican speaker’s chief of staff over on Jones Street.  But he’s moving on up like George and Weezie.  In January, a position was created for him in UNC administration….

Twenty-one pages of DIVERSITY courses?

Yep.  That’s what you’ll find in the course catalog for the Colleges of Arts & Sciences at UNC-Charlotte. Ah, yes. You can shovel all your hard-earned money over to the UNC campus in the Queen City so your young skulls of mush can prepare for the job market and adulthood…

Race-Baiting 101 at UNC-Charlotte

The educrats love to tell us to shut up and keep shoveling our money to them.  And they keep on bitch-slapping us with leftist nonsense funded by that money we keep forking over. We all know how kooky things are in the classrooms at Chapel Hill.  Let’s look at the…

Grade Suppression: Making Public Education, um, “Great” again

I caught this little gem buried deep in a story reporting on a recent Robeson County board of education meeting: […] In other business, the school board: […] — Approved a grade suppression policy. Under the policy certain eligible students can retake a course in which they did poorly. If…

Moore County Schools: Boy, are we getting SCREWED.

Granted, this story is about one of North Carolina’s 100 counties.  But something like this is likely going on in each of the other 99.   We’ve got a clueless, or complicit — not sure which is worse — board of education.  We’ve got a load of edu-crats who are…

As tax hike war-drums beat in Moore County, important questions go un-asked, unanswered

Two years ago, there was some serious drama and boo-hooing over the Moore County School Board’s attempt to fire superintendent Bob Grimesey. (Grimesey managed to show us a few on-camera tears, too.) Since being re-instated, Grimesey has presided over — with a supportive Greek chorus in The Pilot’s newsroom —…

Yes, Duke University, “diversity training” IS a big waste of time.

I have a rule here.  This is a conservative site.  But a little debate never hurts anything.  Lefties are always welcome here.  Though I do make them comply with some simple rules: (1) no profanity, (2) no slander, and (3) sign up with an email that IDs you if you…

Uh-oh, I’ve got mail. (Hint: LESBIAN RESEARCH)

Now, if THAT doesn’t get your attention. Here’s a piece of mail from UNC-CH administration that — somehow — made it into our inbox: From: Kaplan, Roger Jay <kaplan@unc.edu> Sent: Monday, May 1, 2017 5:44 PM To: Provost’s Committee On LGBTQ Life Subject: Summer Grants for Students   Please share widely on your listserves!…

@Appstate: More cronyism! More ethical lapses!

Okay.  So, deep within the mountain wonderland of Watauga County, we’ve got quite a bit of Raleigh-like antics in motion.   We’ve learned about the upswing in violent crime on the Appalachian State University campus.  We’ve learned about university-blessed campaigns against white males and Trump supporters.  We’ve learned about draconian on-campus speech…

Biting the hand that feeds you

Have you ever heard so much whining from people who make six figures a year and work — maybe — 12 hours per week?   THAT is the liberal majority on the University of North Carolina faculty:  A UNC system faculty group has told a major higher education accrediting body…
