ONE MORE reason my alma mater will get ZIPPO from me

Okay. I grimaced and just dealt with the Jimmy Hoffa memorial professorship.  Then came the “mandatory LGBT sensitivity training” for all student organizations.  (You get shut down and kicked off campus if you refuse to participate.  How sensitive is that?) There has been a major…

#ncpol: Educating ‘Lieutenant Linda’

Wouldn’t it be nice if the drive bys fact-checked and interrogated Democrat candidates like they do Republicans?  (We can all dream, can’t we?)  The Asheville Citizen-Times’s Mark Barrett was standing by, with his pencil sharpened, ready to take dictation for Linda Coleman, the Democrat making…

#ncpol: Readin’, ‘ritin’, and RADICALIZATION
