  • City officials scatter like roaches when the news is bad

    Durham wasted $70,000 in “incentive” dollars, earned by the hard work of Durham citizens and taken from them via the tax system, on a company that has now fled town like a thief in the night: ACW Technology – the U.K.-based contract manufacturing company that, back in 2010,…

  • D’oh!

    With this breaking, do you think maybe N.C. Democratic Sen.

  • Why would the legislature listen to N.C.’s three most fringe congressmen?

    North Carolina’s three most liberal members of Congress, whose tenure is ensured by gerrymandered districts made up of a majority consisting of limousine liberals and dependency government parasites, have presumed to tell the state’s newly elected Republican leaders what they should do about Medicaid: Three Democratic…
