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.

Online ad “red flag” to alleged puppy mill in Stokes Co.

STOKES COUNTY, N.C. (WGHP) — The woman whose phone call led to a raid on an alleged puppy mill in Stokes County last week said a red flag went up when she saw an online ad offering three Yorkies for $600.

Robin Manley said the ad was posted by Lucille Mabe, owner of Dan River Bullies in Danbury.

Manley said Yorkies can sell for much more than that, so she went to Dan River Bullies herself.

“I just really felt like something was really bad there. I could smell–I could see how the property was in disrepair. To me it looked dogbroken, like with a lot of animals coming through,” Manley said.
