Another week getting started here on The Chad Adams Show. We started today with a discussion about the latest struggle for equality. Yesterday, women in California protested under the organization “Go Topless.” If men don’t have to wear shirts, women shouldn’t be forced to. Protestors equate their oppression to women’s right to vote. Well. . you have to think about it for a second, but it was nationwide and often shows up in Asheville and Wilmington.
We discussed an interesting property rights case unfolding in Emerald Isle. Where is the literal sand line between public beach access and private beach front property? The courts, last year, sided with the local government, saying the public and town can use the private property without give just compensation. The AG’s office and that of the Gov. agreed. Property rights groups, including the Civitas Institute disagree and this is worthy of LOTS of discussion.
Joining us in studio during the first hour, Tami Fitzgerald from NC Family Values Coalition. We had a robust discussion on HB2 and how it is being portrayed by the media and interpreted on an individual level. HB2 was not a fight picked by the conservative right, but was brought into our state from outside LGBT groups. We discussed the Obama Administration’s ploy to control public restrooms in opposition to NC legislation and the recent ruling in Texas, which put a stay on the administration. We briefly circled around to the Charlotte Gender Unicorn and what your children will be learning as many head back to school today. Truth is, Charlotte/Mecklenburg schools will NOT be using “he” and “she” when referring to your kids.
Joining us next on the program, Drew Elliot with the North State Journal. We discussed the governor’s race and the recent polls showing Cooper with a lead. It is a wonder why the race is so close. Gov. McCrory and the Republican lead legislature, have lowered taxes, cut regulations, created surpluses and provided teacher raises. Over the past few weeks, Cooper has been criticized for not doing his job, failing to all defend NC laws. It will be interesting to see what happens after Labor Day as political attention grows once again.
Closing out the show, we went through an editorial from WRAL, which continues to tilt vastly to the left. The editorial attacks Republican incumbent TV ads, which mention teachers’ pay. The editorial questions the legitimacy of the claims made in the ads. WRAL did very little research before jumping to conclusions, nothing new there.
