Gaming the Turnpike

It has come to my attention that when traveling on The Monument To Fiscal Mismanagement that money is being lost.  I propose that we find out exactly what the procedure is to cost the state more than they gain on the toll road and bankrupt the turnpike commission.


Drivers have two options to pay for the tolls – one with what’s called an NC QuickPass, in which money is deducted from a prepaid account, and another in which drivers are billed.

In some cases, the charge is less than the cost of the postage used to mail the bill.

“They’re few and far between. It’s the exception, not the rule,” Barry Mickle, director of operations for the Turnpike Authority, said Wednesday. “We decided we would treat everybody fairly and equitably. So, if you travel the toll road, you need to be charged.”

I would like to take this moment to point out that it was the Democrats who raided the Highway fund in order to fund their pet projects that people wouldn’t otherwise pay for.  We, the people of North Carolina, need to be keeping track of the shenanigans that go on in government.  Our obscenely high gas tax was instituted to pay for and maintain the roadways.  It is no longer going to that purpose.  We were baited and switched.  The taxes collected to build and maintain roads are now being funneled elsewhere and we are being expected to now pay for the privilege of driving on a public road for the second time.

A Letter to my Congresswoman

A letter to my Congresswoman, Renee Ellmers


Dear Congresswoman Ellmers,

I do not know if you have seen this testimony before the Senate, if not, please view this link to Senator Sessions youtube channel: .

In testimony before the United States Senate, the Secretary of Defense testified that the current administration would seek the approval of the UN, NATO, or an “international coalition” but not the approval of the United States Congress.

This position disturbs me greatly, and in my opinion, borders on treason at the very least.

I do not believe that the Congress can stand for this.  I sincerely hope that you feel the same way, and it is my hope that you will work to keep the Executive Branch of our government from a gross overreach of its constitutional authority.

Thank you,


It has come to my attention that Wikileaks has released e-mails from Stratfor discussing fraud in the 2008 elections.

** Internal Use Only – Pls Do Not Forward **

1) The black Dems were caught stuffing the ballot boxes in Philly and Ohio
as reported the night of the election and Sen. McCain chose not to
fight. The matter is not dead inside the party. It now becomes a matter
of sequence now as to how and when to “out”.

2) It appears the Dems “made a donation” to Rev. Jesse (no, they would
never do that!) to keep his yap shut after his diatribe about the Jews and
Israel. A little bird told me it was a “nice six-figure donation”. This
also becomes a matter of how and when to out.

3) The hunt is on for the sleezy Russian money into O-mans coffers. A
smoking gun has already been found. Will get more on this when the time
is right. My source was too giddy to continue. Can you say Clinton and
ChiCom funny money? This also becomes a matter of how and when to out.

Vote fraud, and illegal campaign contributions (who really cares about the Jesse Jackson thing….).  And there was nobody in power who was honest enough to pursue this.  They wanted to sit on it until it was politically advantageous.   Is there not anybody anywhere who can stand up to this?
