A controversy is brewing within the Mecklenburg County Republican Party. On March 15, the Party’s annual Lincoln Reagan Dinner will be held at the Carmel Country Club. This event is the single largest fundraising opportunity held every year for the County Party, which is by and large responsible for it’s own funding. It has not [...]

N.C.’s Antiquated Sunday Closing Laws

Let them drink beer!!

North Carolinians should be allowed to purchase alcohol at the grocery store before noon on  Sunday. You can’t, however, because of the state’s “Sunday Closing Laws” outlined in N.C. General Statute 18B-1004(c) which states, “It shall be unlawful to sell or consume alcoholic beverages on any licensed premises from the time at which sale or consumption must [...]

Generation TEA

Parties are tools for elections, not philosophies.

The nature of politics is undergoing a radical transformation.  Our two party system is no longer meeting the needs of a growing number of activists.  Historically, the Republican Party was able to represent the interests of right of center conservatives.  With issues becoming more complex, and expectations of activists changing, this is no longer the [...]

Why My Child Will Now Be Homeschooled

Is this appropriate for school?

Greetings. Below is my wife’s (Tamrah Bordini) article on why we will homeschool our daughter and the experience with CMS: I have never wanted to homeschool, although I admire those parents who can and do. I never considered it myself until I met the mother of one of my daughters preschool friends at the pool [...]

Administration Provokes Million Veteran March on Washington

Small portion of the assembled marchers.

I fully believe that history will look at the events of October 13, 2013 as the day when people finally took constructive action against a government hell-bent on arbitrarily and selectively enforcing law and policy based on nothing but politics. President Obama’s biggest mistake?  Targeting veterans. Since the government shutdown began on October 1, President [...]

Pittenger Wrong on Obamacare

Robert Pittenger addresses constituents at recent townhall forums.

With respect to my long time friend Congressman Robert Pittenger, on whose advisory committee I served during his election to Congress, he is dead wrong in his arguments for voting to fund Obamacare. The Congressman argues that mandatory monies will go to Obamacare anyway…as if the additional money he plans to vote for in a [...]

CMS Dishing Up Big Bucks For Free Breakfasts


The old adage advises that there’s no such thing as a free lunch (or breakfast, in this case), but don’t try telling that to the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education. Not content with the district’s free- and reduced-price meal program, the school board this month approved a new Universal Breakfast initiative that next school year will [...]

The Little Streetcar That Could: Foxx Tapped For Transportation Secretary


With news that Team BO has cherry picked Mayor Anthony Foxx to be the country’s next transportation secretary, two notions chug down parallel tracks: either the workload of a top-ranking federal bureaucrat is a lot cushier and less demanding than ever imagined possible, or Foxx flat-out lied to his homegrown constituents last month. That’s when [...]

Char-Meck Library Throws Money At Conundrum Of Confusion


With a twist of ironic timing, Charlotte Mecklenburg Library officials have tagged April Fool’s Day to launch expanded hours at a dozen community branch libraries where services had shrunk and positions were cut in response to previous budgetary reductions. The move, which will cost about $1.2 million drawn from the library system’s current budget, is [...]

Is The GOP Ready For A Libertarian Presidential Candidate?


Republican US Senator Rand Paul (KY) says the path forward for the GOP in national elections is to get someone on the ballot who is a little more libertarian. Sort of like him, coincidentally. Appearing on FOX News Sunday, Sen. Paul made his case: If Rand Paul is right, he’s positioning himself pretty well. He [...]
