If you were watching the history channel last week, the events in Chapel Hill looked eerily like the events used to bring Lenin, Stalin and Hitler to power.

Reminiscent of the KKK, law enforcement and the chancellor appear intimidated by the drunken mob that tumbled the Civil War memorial erected…

This is in response to Ray Shamlin’s recent letter, titled 'Cost of socialism too high."

My question is, by whose measurement? Using Mr. Shamlin's own figures, he says that universal health care or Medicare for all would cost $3.26 trillion per year and conveniently adds that on to all the…

It has taken hundreds of years to earn the freedom to express one's self, worship whom one wants to, love without having to explain your life away, vote in elections and even compete with the glass ceiling that is very much alive.

While we do not have equality for all and our nation's children are…

It is a frequent and common mistake for people to misunderstand what socialism is. The tendency is to lump it with social welfare programs.

I would strongly suggest that if one is seriously interested, then one should do some research and reading pertaining to that subject before spouting…

On Aug. 18, 2018, Mr. Gurney Walker, a senior citizen of 75, was brutally and fatally attacked at home in Rocky Mount. The horrific and sad truth is that Mr. Walker was the conscious, living victim of approximately 269 pounds of animal jaw pressure to his elderly body, acutely aware that he would…

When Tarboro’s own Todd Gurley inked a new $60 million contract with the NFL’s Rams, he set a new standard for pro running backs.

While starring at UGA, some sports fans sported shirts that read “I am a Gurley man.”

Is Gurley the best? This contract suggests that he is.…

Stretching back to fundamental Burkean philosophy, there is one value all but shredded in the age of Donald Trump — respect for the rule of law.

His constant attempts to obstruct justice in the Mueller investigation with only the slightest pushback from most in Congress has set a…

The Boy Statue, aka “Silent Sam,” has been pulled down by a lawless mob while the UNC-Chapel Hill police force stood by and watched.

There was a time in this land when truth held prominence, common sense held sway and the law was respected and upheld. Those times seem to be fading fast…

With all the negative mainstream news about our president, I want to point out some good things:
