Raleigh Downtown “Scary For Visitors And Workers”

I actually did not realize that the Raleigh downtown area, really, the center part if you look at a map, was slowly getting dangerous like so many other Democrat run cities. I rarely go down that way, and, if I do, it’s specifically to someplace during the day. I do not go there to eat […]

This has made the unhinged Democrats very upset, but, even if Governor Cooper vetoes it (he will) the veto will be over-ridden NC Senate votes to ban trans girls from playing on school sports teams aligning with gender identity Transgender rights took center stage Tuesday in North Carolina as the GOP-controlled General Assembly advanced legislation […]

North Carolina Democrats Have Hissy Fit Over Party Switching, Demand Election Changes

The bill they’re offering will go exactly nowhere, since they do not control either the House or Senate in the general assembly, and probably won’t even get a vote but, they had to figure out a way for sore losers to sore lose North Carolina Democrats seek election, campaign changes after lawmaker switches to GOP […]
