Leave HB2 in place and leave us alone
The NCAA may withhold all athletic events from the state. The reason, HB2. The progressives are pulling out all the stops to pressure the North Carolina legislature to repeal HB2. We read articles daily from the Associated Press in concert with progressive newspaper columnists about how much money the state is losing in revenue.
No one remembers, it seems, that the Charlotte City Council was first to pass an ordinance giving transgender people the right to use bathrooms of their choice. Radio stations have joined in the act, reporting over and over again every hour about how Charlotte and the state are losing so much money.
