Bully Pulpit

The term "bully pulpit" stems from President Theodore Roosevelt's reference to the White House as a "bully pulpit," meaning a terrific platform from which to persuasively advocate an agenda. Roosevelt often used the word "bully" as an adjective meaning superb/wonderful. The Bully Pulpit features news, reasoned discourse, opinion and some humor.

No Sale on New Local Taxes

I like this quote from John Hood: "North Carolinians are not undertaxed. They are underserved – by politicians." I couldn't have said it better myself.

From John Hood's Daily Journal:

RALEIGH – You pay too little in taxes.

That is apparently the belief of many if not most members of the North Carolina House. It may well be a popular sentiment among members of the North Carolina Senate, as well, though we may not have the opportunity to find out this year.
