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…

Thats what happened — according to one of my moles – to Moore County school board chairman Ed Dennison at Saturday’s northern Moore GOP precinct meetings. If you haven’t followed things closely here, let me recap.  Our school board is the furthest thing from watchdogs….

More on public school bureaucrat duplicity

We posted earlier on how edu-crats here in Moore County have a yearly ritual of LYING their posteriors off to the public about their financial position.  *Oh, the babies are going to starve! We’re going to have to pack 50 into each classroom! We’re going…

#ncpol: Ol’ Roy and that pesky constitution
