Old white men meet at old white men's club

So they can settle their debts without any riff-raff bothering them:

The N.C. Republican House Caucus Leadership fund will be raising money at the Carolina Country Club next month. The Aug. 27 shindig is billed as a reception honoring the GOP House caucus. Chipping in $10,000 will get you 12 tickets to the VIP and general receptions, with less expensive options available down to $150 single tickets.

In all fairness, the Club did just decide to finally allow one (Duke Energy) African-American to join its previously lily-white ranks:

The Carolina Country Club, a favored gathering spot for Raleigh’s social elite since 1910, has made what appears to be its first acceptance of African-American members in its 103-year history.

The most recent edition of Columns, the club newsletter, that arrived in members’ mailboxes Tuesday announced that Hilda Pinnix-Ragland, vice president of corporate public affairs for Duke Energy, had been accepted for membership with husband Alvin Ragland.

The accomplishment was somewhat soured when she was told the only day she was allowed to actually play the game of golf was on "Ladies Golfing Day", which is always held on February 29th.



Ha! She gets play once every four years? She'll get all excited to play in 2016, but watch her be turned away by the (white) snow.

Sorry. That last part

about Leap Day was a joke. I have no idea how often they let the ladies play, or if they're allowed to show any knee while they're doing it. ;)

Have They Admitted...

...any economically disadvantaged people?

The missing word from your phrase was "Rich", as in "Old RICH white men", as in the target population as the recipients of the massive wealth redistribution that the NCGOP has launched.

I doubt it.

I think the membership costs $40,000, and probably an annual fee, as well.

I can't imagine them offering a cut-rate deal based on income disparity. The blue-bloods would probably run away screeching.


The rich old white men need a place where they can get away from people who aren't like them.
