The Chatham County "Property Rights Death Squad" is picking a fight

Chatham Journal Newspaper Headlines - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 21:05
I've had the unfortunate opportunity to attend meetings of the new Chatham County Planning Board AKA "The Property Rights Death Squad." The new County Planning Board with new members appointed by the recently elected Democrat County Commissioners, plan to pick a fight with towns and villages in the western part of Chatham County. They have decided as their number one priority, to zone the entire County.

Student data mining system raises privacy concerns

Chatham Journal Newspaper Headlines - Fri, 03/27/2015 - 14:07
North Carolina public schools are developing a multimillion-dollar student data mining system intended to compile and analyze reams of information to improve educational outcomes. But critics say it poses a “creepy” potential to engineer the work force and easily could fall prey to a variety of “malicious” abuses. Known as the P-20W system, the program captures student data from pre-K through graduate school and follows individuals into their work years. The Department of Public Instruction is collaborating with the UNC system, North Carolina Community Colleges System, North Carolina Independent Colleges and Universities, the state Department of Health and Human Services, and the Department of Commerce to gather, manage, and analyze the information.

Taylor inflames Chatham Liberal hate

Subject: Taylor inflames Chatham Liberal hate

It is no surprise that Chatham County’s left has little use for free speech. We have seen here on the Chatham Chatlist that Its predominant tactic is trying to bully its opponents into silence.

Chatham County liberals’ hostility toward Taylor Kish’s free speech is merely a function of the fact that their oxen are now being gored.

And don’t the rest of us all just love it!
