Foxx Fire

As the editorial section of the post stated, “Few would have predicted in the awful days after Sept. 11, 2001, that just seven years later, members of Congress would actually be considering legislation to make the nation’s capital harder to protect.”

Votes, Voices. Investments.

According to financial disclosure records, Foxx has owned between $15,001 and $50,000 of stock in Chevron Corporation since 2004. She has also accepted campaign contributions from the Petroleum Marketers Association of America as well as Exxon Mobil.

Pins and Needles

This last week and a half has been crazy. Trying to move forward but unsure how to proceed. Less than 24 hours before the North Carolina 5th District Democratic Convention and victory is awaiting a handful of provisional ballots from Forsyth County ...

Democrats and Socialists As Defined By Virgina Foxx

“To me the bigger question is not about liberalism or conservatism; it’s about doing the right thing for the people…” Roy J. Carter, Challenger NC-05

The above quote is in direct response to Virginia Foxx’s question: “I guess that means that he’s supporting them, (Sens. Clinton and Obama), Does it mean that’s he’s supporting the most liberal person in the Senate and the sixteenth most liberal person in the Senate? Is he throwing his hat in the ring with them?”
