The Daily Haymaker had reported recently about a bill that is working its way through the North Carolina General Assembly. The bill would grant state residency to non-citizens who graduate from the public schools in North Carolina. This is very significant because it would qualify the children of illegal aliens...

Fred, perhaps the only thing that saves the city of Greensboro from this type of fate is the fact that the state requires the city balance its budget every year. It also has enormous reserves. The risk, of course, is that the city drives away potential employers. This has been happening for years. The local political culture has decided it wants to use bells and whistles to attract employers instead of low taxes and low regulation. How is it working for us? Not very well.
The news is grim (HT: Greensboro 101): Property taxes are going up 5%; Water and sewer rates are hiked by 4%; and A $2.50 per month recycling fee also is being added. Remain mindful that water and sewer rates have been increased seemingly every year; and property taxes were effectively... Continue reading

The news last week that the American Hebrew Academy was closing was quite a shock. There is enormous, unspeakable wealth in the American Jewish community; and if there is a will to keep this institution alive, it will happen. It must be recognized that this institution's founding legacy was marked... Continue reading

Yes, we are, Fred. We ought to learn from Texas. And the GOP NC General Assembly ought to pass something similar. Thanks for posting about the ugly underside of these programs.
An interesting blog post at the Family Research Council website states that four pastors serving in the North Carolina General Assembly voted against the recent Infant Born Alive veto override attempt. One of these four legislator/pastors is Guilford County's Amos Quick. His web page on the General Assembly website indicates... Continue reading

Isn't technology wonderful? A couple of weeks ago we had written about the city of Greensboro's plans to re-institute its despised red light camera program. Now, we learn that the city is also considering an automated program that would use electronic monitors to ticket drivers for speeding. Imagine driving down... Continue reading

HT: Matt Several days ago, a Guilford County Superior Court Judge-- Lora Cubbage-- was handling a murder case. A 21 year old male was responsible for shooting and killing a 16 year old female who had tried to steal marijuana. Cubbage became teary eyed and referred to both the murderer... Continue reading

You are right. They defeat themselves.
Fred, the Republicans must be willing to screen them properly-- but they often refuse to do so. And they must be willing to fight to get strong judicial conservatives confirmed-- but they often refuse to do so.
Item: Judge Thomas Schroeder is enforcing a consent degree agreement after the Cultural Marxists sued over HB 142, the much-watered-down replacement for HB 2. He had previously ruled that transgender individuals can use the rest room of their choice. Schroeder was nominated by George W. Bush when Elizabeth Dole and... Continue reading

Thank the GOP and the democratic socialists-- both. Wayne Allensworth, Chronicles: Yes, there will be elections, and they may be worth voting in, but the disaster has already happened. The Orange Man’s MAGA Show looks to be winding down after a somnambulant Donald Trump signed a spending bill that apparently... Continue reading

The kingmakers are McConnell and his merry band. They are the ones who designate who is worthy of representing each state on the Republican side, and who open the spigots of fundraising.
A post by Carter Wrenn, who is working for Garland Tucker, discusses some polling results that ordinarily would indicate Thom Tillis is highly vulnerable in the GOP primary next year. (HT: JH) And Tillis ought to be vulnerable. He has done absolutely nothing of value since arriving in Washington four... Continue reading

Yes, Fred, we all ought to pray for their accepting Christ and their conversion. The alternative is not pretty for them, obviously.
Anthony Esolen, Touchstone: While the nation includes many citizens seeking justice and doing good, in its legislation and court rulings, we discern what can only be called great evil deliberately committed by the state. Our nation's evil still may be masked at times by good deeds and by the residue... Continue reading

Aaron Wolf had been a prolific columnist and editor with Chronicles Magazine. He died one month ago, leaving behind a wife and six children. One of his last pieces comments on the failure to pass an "infant born alive" Act in Washington. We are now in the midst of a... Continue reading

Great idea, Fred. I wonder if it could pass.
More than a decade ago, the city of Greensboro had a red light camera program. Many citizens doubtless felt this was a highly inappropriate effort. Of course, Greensboro is a progressive/socialist "paradise", so its leaders and bureaucrats probably thought this was a great idea. However, they ran into a problem... Continue reading
