“President Biden, Congress, politicians, tell us recovery is at hand but – unless you trust politicians – you can hear a distant rumble of thunder.


We have to stop this storm before it turns into a hurricane but politicians can’t do that. It takes leaders with common sense, who’ll tell politicians:
'No more. Enough. Stop.'

Politicians in Raleigh are out to pass a bill to bring casinos to North Carolina. That’s not a good idea. I’m against it. Mark Robinson, my opponent, didn’t try to stop that bill as President of the Senate – he was missing in action.

Just What We Need, More Billionaires

John Hood, an old friend, was straightforward in his column NCInnovation Is a Bridge Too Far.
