Dean Smith and Wallace Wade: Teachers of Life, Not Just ‘Coaches’

How were Dean Smith and Wallace Wade most alike? ‘They saw themselves as ‘teachers’ first and foremost’. ‘What’s that you say? 2 of the most successful collegiate coaches in the history of college sports in America thought of themselves as ‘teachers’ first and ‘coaches’ second? Are you kidding me?’ It’s true. Of course, it helped […]

Evaluating Non-Profit Motives

Non-profit is a word descriptive of a type of business entity which has a special tax status. Along with that status comes rules particular to the idea of being not in the business of making a profit. This would obviously seem to mean the business has some other function it tries to fulfill.  One of […]

Bush Campaign Underway in NC

The first shot across the bow for domination of Presidential politics in North Carolina visited my inbox yesterday.  I received an email from Theresa Kostrzewa touting former Florida Governor Jeb Bush. Kostrzewa is a 19 year veteran of NC politics currently working for Capital Results, a “full-service public affairs and business consulting firm with offices in the state […]

More Police Pretentiousness

One can only guess what the NC Highway Patrol is telling their patrolmen these days or, for that matter, what type person they’re allowing to wear the uniform. I give you this example. Recently an acquaintance of mine was driving along NC 49 in Cabarrus County. A HP trooper moved into position in front of […]

GOP Senate Votes to Raise Gas Tax

Republicans in the General Assembly are becoming ever more creative in figuring out ways to separate people from their money.  First we are told that the state is “oh so broke” and only toll lanes and HOT lanes can possibly solve our nagging infrastructure problems.  Now, the same folks are advocating for higher gas taxes, […]

The Con Con Con

I’d be willing to bet that the U.S. Constitution is not the #1 topic of your conversations today.  It’s one of those things you take for granted, like the sunrise… it’s there supporting you, but you don’t think about it too much.  What you don’t know is that the Constitution is very much the topic […]

A Brief Commentary on Partisan Elections

I was just having a conversation on Facebook with a friend of mine who posted a note thanking his state senator for opposing efforts by some in his county to move to non-partisan elections.  He happens to be a sitting County Commissioner in one of those “foreign” eastern NC counties. If you have at all […]

It just came to my attention that Timothy Johnson, former NC GOP Vice Chairman, passed away on January 30. From his Facebook page: Our father, Timothy F. Johnson, peacefully left this earth on Friday, January 30th, 2015 and embarked his new journey as our angel alongside his mother Carol Ann Wilson-Johnson (Nani) and his father […]

Distribution Politics, The Reallocation of Scarcity

Let us pretend, for the sake of argument, and differently from those who believe there should be unlimited funding to pay for their personal cause; that there is, indeed, a limited supply of wealth to be spent. Further, let us imagine it is produced by people who work and invest, and not those who only […]

Beware of False Prophets

The Reverend Al Sharpton denies liberty and freedom to those who purchase his wares. He’s a race profiteer, one who makes his living creating racial tension not healing communities. Even though he owes the IRS millions in back taxes, Sharpton visited the White House 61 times in 2014 and reportedly advised the President on Attorney […]
