The State of North Carolina… DEVASTATED ??

Holocaust
BobLee
July22/ 2016

The Greatest “Loss” to North Carolina since “The Colony” at Manteo.

…. as traumatic as Dean Smith’s death

…. as impossible to comprehend as Barney and Thelma Lou breaking up …..

Infamous North Carolina Democrat Dan Blue, rousing his easily-roused rabble, summed it up on Thursday:

“This is a DEVASTATING blow to our state. One that will take North Carolina years to recover from economically ….”

 

Whoa there Mr Blue…. you might want to switch to Decaf.

Snappy Lunch…. Has PETA outlawed hushpuppies?

…. Has Mt Airy’s Snappy Lunch served it’s last pork chop sandwich ? 

…. Is Bojangles going “sushi” ?

…. Is Cheerwine the latest cause of Global Warming ?

…. Have Yankees found a new route to Florida instead of I-95?

Nope. None of those TRULY DEVASTATING events.

Just very strange NBA Commissioner Adam Silver moving his mid-season NBA exhibition game away from Charlotte…  Oh! Is that all?

If that does not quite reach “DEVASTATED” on your scale, then congratulations.  You have a functioning brain.

A quick counter to Mr Blue’s economic illogic…. If not getting $$$ you never had is DEVASTATING to an economy, then the $$$ saved when we don’t have a Hurricane is a Windfall.   A regular hurricane might cause $200,000,000 damage Downeast,… so by NOT having one we “make that $$$” using Mr Blue’s math.  Ergo:  Not having a hurricane is twice as profitable as having an NBA All-Star Game.   VOILA!

My 1st Thought when I read Dan Blue hyperbolic lament was “Is Sheila Jackson-Lee writing Dan Blue’s material these days?” “Sheila” is a quite insane AfAm woman from Houston. Even the short list of Very Stoopid Crap Sheila Has Said would turn this column into War & Peace. If Sheila did not write that hyperbolic crap for Dan, she coulda.

My 2nd Thought was there actually are humanoids out there that WILL BELIEVE that hyperbolic crap. The same ones that actually vote for flim flammers the likes of Dan Blue and Charlotte Mayor Jennifer Roberts (and her Seven Cronies)…. and some state senator clown named Jeff Jackson

Peter AnlyanMy 3rd Thought was “Gee, I wonder if Jim Goodmon’s stooge – Peter Anlyan – was involved in making up that $100,000,000 Economic Impact Flim Flam? It was Peter, of course, who authored the unforgettable “….. at least 80,000. Maybe more” for the turnout at one of Bill Barber’s Hoot ‘n Hates a few years ago.  The actual mob turnout was “around 5,000” !!  To Peter’s defense he was simply doing what Boss Goodmon told him to do.

The $100,000,000 Impact absurdum was obviously aimed at the same dim-witted constituency that believed Peter’s “at least 80,000”.   Both of McClatchy’s failing newspapers in Charlotte and Raleigh, and Jim Goodmon’s WRAL have turned their rabid dogs loose on this DEVASTATION.   Comparisons forthcoming no doubt  to Hurricanes Hazel, Hugo, Floyd and Katrina as well as eruptions of Mount St Helen’s, Vesuvius and Krakatoa and the DEVASTATING collapse of The Golden State Warriors in The NBA Finals.  ….. That anyone dumb enough to believe the $100,000,000 impact crap has ever heard of Vesuvius or Krakatoa is irrelevant.

Howsabout a snazzy bit of photo-journalism…. comparison of Charlotte’s fabled intersection of Trade & Tryon after “the DEVASTATING News” to Walking DeadNawlins’ Bourbon Street post-Katrina.   Maybe B-roll of attorneys, bankers and transgenders stumbling along like Walking Dead extras…. too stunned to fully comprehend the DEVASTATION. ….. jeeeezzzz.

I did notice that the lying weasels in “the media” did take pity on those goobers that truly believed the $100,000,000 pile o’ crap. They did not tell them the DEVASTATING impact of some whozit school in New York canceling a Field Hockey game w/ UNCCH this Fall. That, the Demi Lovato concert, and all those Vermont state employees not coming to NC might send too many folks into a lifetime of therapy.

FOLKS: If Eeeeevil Pat McCrory and the even Eeeeviler Republicans in the NCGA all conspired to Outlaw Summer ….. the combined economic impact of THAT on Wrightsville Beach, Topsail Beach, Emerald Isle, Atlantic Beach, Morehead City, and Duck would not equal $100,000,000.Adam Silver

Speaking of “Duck”… that NBA’s Adam Silver certainly is a very odd one.  You know he went to Duke.

I’m not going to get into the FACTS about HB2. By this time you have either (1) bought into the very well-funded LGBT Gender Terrorists’ Global War on HB2 …. Or (2) you actually read the bill.

NOTE:  Yes.  I saw where Coach K, Ol’ Roy, Gott and some whozit at Elon all did the quite expected “grab their ankles & pander to recruits” in expressing their displeasure with HB2.   Luckily for Roy he was NOT asked (1) if he has a clue what HB2 is…. or (2) if he knew who the Governor is…. or (3) what the GBT stands for in LGBT.

FYI:  I am NOT a big fan of Governor Pat McCrory and I have major issues with the so-called majority leadership of The NC House.  I am NOT defending anything they have done.  I AM an aggressive opponent of “liberals” and the “liberal media” in particular.

With the help of AgentPierce I am going to debunk the DEVASTATION Hysteria being spread by a lying media, by Dan Blue, Jeff Jackson and their ilk. Bet you didn’t know that Pierce spent 20 years doing quite bogus Economic Impact Projections.  Uh Oh! Last week Pierce offered up the following commentary on The Economic Impact Myth.

If you don’t have time to read Pierce’s outstanding piece…. The only business niche that MIGHT suffer from No NBA All-Star Game in Charlotte will be the local strip clubs and escort services. If that includes you…. you have my deepest sympathy.

If you think this Much Ado About Not Much is ridiculous…. just you wait until mid-October.  The same people touting this hysteria will be REALLY in high gear then.  You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

The Great Economic Impact Myth .. LINK

AgentPierceSaid…. JULY 12 / 2016

If you are “a bettor”, push all your chips to the middle of the table that The NBA All-Star Game will NOT be held in Charlotte this coming season.

That the game WILL be held in Charlotte as scheduled is less likely than Bev “Dumplin” Purdue was once interviewed by Roger Ailes’ for Fox & Friends hostess. WHOA…. Sorry to sneak that one in on you. Take a deep cleansing breath and you’ll be fine.

That NBA All-Star Game for Charlotte was toast the moment the LGBT gender terrorists launched their Global War on HB2 and on “folks like me & maybe you” and on everyone in the NCGA with an R behind their name. That was back in early April in case you can’t remember a time without HB2 in the daily headlines.

Unless you own an interest in, or are employed by, a strip club or an escort service in Greater Charlotte, No NBA All-Star Game will NOT mean no Thanksgiving, Christmas or college for your kids….   READ MORE

if you are ” identify with male dog” and you pee on a fire hydrant in downtown NYC does this protect you from being arrested for violation of public urination laws. If you did a no. 2 would you be required to clean up after yourself. This stuff really clogs up my little itty bitty brain. If RINO McCrory had lived up to his commitment to honor the nonbinding referendum on the UPTOWN arena we would not be having this discussion as there would be no NBA in the Queen City and don’t even get me started on the NASCAR… Read more »

The NBA has an all star game??????!!!!! Whatever……..

Didn’t New York ban non-essential travel to NC? Is a Syracuse trip to Cameron, the Dean Dome or whatever the Wolfpack’s home arena is called this week essential? Would the answer change if an ACC title is on the line? Can you say situational ethics?

Syracuse is a PRIVATE institution. It is NOT controlled by Gov Cumo or Mayor de Blasio. THEREFORE, sports travel will be permitted….unless the ACC and NCAA jump in. All the ballyhoo about the SUNY games (basically oversized Wake Tech types….I have visited a few SUNY campuses in upstate NY) was really of NO consequence and the AD’s took a financial hit. If you do a little “googling”, you will find that the LGBT(Trump ADDED Q) groups have STRONG ties to a certain Upstate NY Campus.

The mortgage crisis was created by Dodd-Frank legislation. Everyone gets a house, mid 90’s Bill Clinton legislation. The whole house of cards can be toppled by voodoo economics. The new target for the Dems is free college education. They never learn. I wish everyone could get a free house or education. It would be wonderful to end hunger, sickness and all the ills for people everywhere. Unfortunately compassion requires funding. Detroit is struggling with trash collection. Even the most basic needs cannot be met when a municipality is broke. Every time I see Hillery I see Detroit. I can’t help… Read more »

Bob, Correction, Dodd – Frank was the REACTION to the Mortgage Crisis that started in late 2007 and carried over into 2008. The D-F act was signed into law on July 21, 2010. If you do some research, the culprit behind the Housing (which ultimately lead to the financial crisis) was two fold. Clinton and the Dems wanted EVERYONE to have a house….regardless of whether they could PAY (make the Mortgage) for it. Then Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae (Not too adults in a live sex show in Rio….but CLOSE) got into the act. Barney Frank’s ExBF was appointed to… Read more »

BL, this one didn’t go through the first time. Since this is becoming one of your all-time columns, thought I’d reintroduce baseball with your Cards 16-inning win over my Dodgers early this morning. And this with no Kershaw in sight :>)) However HB2 is still the soup de jour, and beyond our Governor’s blindness in signing, defending, and trying to cosmetically change HB2, the real problem is “Crock-a-Gators in the Legislature” who have an abundance of mendacity plus a bathroom fetish. This can be seen based on an early joke my Dad told me about three little boys around a… Read more »

This is probably APish. I probably share more in common with 58WK than he’d care to believe. This is not one of those times. From JFK’s Democratic Party…..putting a man of the moon within 10 years, ending poverty, Camelot etc, to the current day Party of putting men in ladies restrooms or vice versa (WOW), and other petty ideas that add nothing of substance to the advancement of society. Why this embracing of the ABC-Z lists of marginal concepts instead of important issues facing the nation by both establishment parties? Because they have both failed and can offer no solutions… Read more »

Now hold on. The NBA is taking a “stand” against the “abuse” of “rights” in Charlotte NC by removing the All Star game but they have no problem with playing games in China? http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2016/03/08/report-china-had-worst-year-ever-for-human-rights-abuses-in-2015/ and celebrate China http://pr.nba.com/chinese-new-year-surprise-door/.

JD, Don’t forget it was the Houston Mayor that pushed through the SAME (folks pass around resolutions and do a find and replace to change city names and such) Legislation or perhaps “Regulations” the Charlotte passed. BINGO, the Houston citizens, a very…VERY high percentage is Latino….VOTED IT DOWN in an OPEN election. It was even close. SO, Houston NOW repealed HB2. Let that SINK IN… Did the NCAA pull the 2016 NCAA BB Championship Game at the NRG in HOUSTON? NOPE! Has the NCAA called the Houston Rockets and told them that they MUST MOVE? NOPE! Has the NFL harassed… Read more »

Has anyone considered the economic impact of not having every Super Bowl in Charlotte? What about the economic impact of not having every Final 4 in Charlotte? Since every NASCAR race isn’t held at CMS we are probably losing millions a year. I just realized not having a Major League Baseball has cost trillions in economic impact over the last 100 years!!! Charlotte may never recover.

Since there are divided opinions on HB2, LGBT issues, the all-star game and other self inflicted social issues of the day, both real and perceived, I think there is one thing nearly everyone can agree on. Adam Silver needs some fleshing up. My late mama woulda said, “that boy needs some meat on his bones.”

Is transgender just a fancy way of saying cross dressers. I imagine that saying cross dressers just doesn’t have the same impact in the media as transgender. Later BobLee.

[…] amigo BobLee hit the nail on the head about the All-Star game in his latest column.   Not a whole lot of people in our great state (outside the Mecklenburg county line) gave a hoot […]

As a North Carolinian, I just don’t get it. Any law that allows a transgendered “woman” access to the Ladies Room also legally allows any non-transsexual pervert access to the Ladies Room.

It’s almost like the Democrats can’t deal with the state’s 5th best GDP so they have to go out and gin up some issue to fire up the masses . . .

By any rational definition, impact analysis should derive from facts and transparency. Unfortunately in today’s political climate, nobody (it seems) ventures down that lonely road, and precious few of our electorate (and NONE of the media) demand it. In the case of HB2, supporters of the measure downplay the impact (“hell, so many people agree with this law, it’ll be a net windfall”) and opponents inflate it (“horror, devastation, millions, billions, gazillions…”). The truth is hidden, buried in the soft ground, somewhere in-between. All of this is perfectly in line with today’s binary political culture. I’m part of what seems… Read more »

Now what in the world will Mr. Silva do if the Hornets get in the playoffs next season and advance to the finals. If he believes that one of the illiterate multimillionaires some of whom would have trouble spelling HB2 will boycott over the bill he is going to be sorely disappointed. I hope Mr. Jordan is smart enough to call Mr. Silva’ pair of twos.

So this is another instance where those do-gooders are hurting the people they say they support. To my recollection, the only impact so far of this entire debacle has been to Charlotte (which is fitting, cause they started this fight), Cary (they lost a concert or something) and perhaps Duke (perhaps, since 100 other schools would love a game with Duke). This is just like the Indiana “religious freedom OMG you hate gays” hysteria of a year prior. The places that were impacted with temper tantrums generally were not the places run by the opposition; rather, they were always places… Read more »

Hadn’t seen Dudley Moore’s comments nor your response when I made my comments on HB-2. Agree with both of you on its origins, but detect a mite more civil response to him as a life-long Republican than to my world-wide view. Probably ought to send you my printed letter to the editor on ‘Crocagators in the Legislature” to explain the origin of HB-2. However, I wouldn’t be touting the rise of HB-2 or Voter-ID legislation in other states to justify NC actions. Elections and court decisions still coming up?.

No beating around the bush!!! Also do not care we lost anything that has pro-sports attached. Starbucks has gone the way of Target and no longer has mens or womens restrooms. At UNC-CH there is a professor that took it upon herself to label a women’s restroom as all are welcome to use. I have way of getting their attention and the mens rooms back or at least having some fun proving a few points. Drop a load and smell up the joint. Then leave door propped open to let all customers enjoy your relief! Since we get blamed for… Read more »

BL, I guess I am one of your few regulars who disagrees with you on this. You can joke and ridicule all you want, but the fact is HB2 is costing our state and its businesses money, and goodwill. To be clear, I have read the bill and all its provisions carefully, and am not under the influence of any misinformation or propaganda from any left-wing or liberal entities. I simply think the bill is misguided, unnecessary, mean-spirited, and out of touch with the times and the mores of society. Beyond that, it is bad for business. Oh, and for… Read more »

I think it’s telling that as a “Lifelong Republican” you find HB2 as being “mean spirited.” Really? Look at what is happening in Target stores nationwide and tell me why allowing anybody into the Ladies Room is good, sound corporate policy.

Know who else is a “Lifelong Republican?” John Boehner and John McCain.

Dan Blue is as dumb as a brick. Just another brothu’ that came along on the coat tails when the Lightner-McKissicki-Gantt Gang were flimflamming the working world out of untold cash and goodies with Soul City. (But it does have a nice water and sewer system). I could care less if the NBA plays here in any format. Pro basketball has less appeal to me than soccer. I wonder if his $100 mill figure has factored in the uptick in coke and crack sales that follow that circus about? As for Silver, I still say he looks like he was… Read more »

I think the word that needs to go out as you imply is that most of NC doesn’t care. I’m a sports fan and was a huge fan of the original Hornets…until George Shinn ruined it for me, but I really couldn’t care less that the game goes to Nawlins. The economic impact of events like these are usually blown out of proportion anyway by the bureaucrats.

Greenberg and his fill-in co-host and Bomani Jones did almost an hour on the Charlotte Mess / HB2 et al… and pretty much had all their facts wrong. Specifically that they said “the citizens of Charlotte” voted for the original ordinance and therefore are very opposed to HB2. Totally incorrect of course. “The citizens” never had the chance to vote on it because Roberts and her cronies knew it would fail just like it did in Houston. ….
