Writing in the new year ….

(Belated) Happy New Year! Haven’t written here at the site for a while but have been stationed instead at American Lens alongside my longtime partner in crime Andrea Dillon (who is one of the co-founders of AL) from the famous Lady Liberty website, and other writers with strong voices in the area. Am Lens focuses […]

 

Charlotte Observer Admits Charlotte’s Bathroom Provision Was Never Needed

Posted by: ST on September 15, 2016 at 10:01 am » 3 Comments

It’s always highly amusing when the sanctimonious editorial troupe over at the Charlotte Observer slip up and admit the truth about an issue they’ve been demagoguing for months and months. It happened again Wednesday night regarding the HB2 issue. The state’s HB2 bill is about more than just bathroom access, of course, but bathroom access […]

If you’re fed up over the demagoguery and nonsense surrounding the opposition to North Carolina’s HB2 “bathroom bill”, make sure your voice is heard. Wanted to create this list so the information would in one place for anyone interested in contacting officials with the NCAA and ACC over their hypocritical, ridiculous decisions to move championship […]

**Reposting.  God bless, and never forget.  -ST** ———————————————————- Longtime readers of this blog will recognize this post, as I have published it here every 9-11 since 2006 in honor of Mr. Mardikian, and all victims of the 9-11 terror attacks, as part of DC Roe’s 9-11 remembrance project. I thought this year about doing another post for another […]

Posted by: ST on September 3, 2016 at 12:52 pm » 1 Comment

Much has been written in the aftermath of San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s highly controversial decision to sit during the national anthem prior to the start of all 2016 pre-season games, mostly notably last week’s 49ers game against the Green Bay Packers at Levi’s Stadium. Most commentary has revolved around Kaepernick’s “right” to speak his […]

 

Renewed.

Renewed the ST domain today – for another two years. Normally I renew for one year each year, but the recent horrific and tragic events that have taken place over the last week drove me to make sure the site was around for a while to come, and that what I had written here since […]

 

Quote of the Day: Gov. Jerry Brown explains rationale for min. wage increase

Chris Christie’s No Good, Very Bad, Horrible Week

Posted by: ST on March 2, 2016 at 5:23 pm » 5 Comments

When New Jersey Governor Chris Christie attempted to knee-cap Senator Marco Rubio’s campaign at a mid-January New Hampshire presidential debate, it didn’t make much sense. Christie struggled during his entire presidential campaign to gain traction in a crowded GOP field. But instead of pulling out all the stops against frontrunner Donald Trump that night, Christie […]

 

The pros and cons of @PurePizzaCLT’s “transgender bathroom” solution

Posted by: ST on January 14, 2016 at 9:21 pm » 5 Comments

My latest at Independent Journal Review is an opinion piece that discusses Pure Pizza, a trendy pizzeria here in Charlotte that has been thrust into the national spotlight after a customer and friend of the owner recently posted a picture of the owner’s unisex bathroom policy on social media, in place for five months or […]
