I personally think most of government should be shut down, permanently; but what a theatrical scene it was watching a dysfunctional Congress (Democrat and Republican) shut down the government Jan. 19.

Senators of both parties broke ranks on the bill.

Five Democrats sided with the majority of…

As a member of the federal community who served our country for years, I am concerned by an attempt to force current U.S. Postal Service retirees onto Medicare Part B after they previously declined this coverage. While hailed as a way to improve U.S. Postal Service finances, this is nothing more…

Is it just me, or does seeing litter all along our roads bother you?

There are way too many people who think it’s OK to toss trash out their windows instead of waiting until they get to a trash can. These individuals need to wise up. This intolerable action creates an extra burden on our…

Six months ago, in July 2017, we bought a house in Rocky Mount to be our retirement home. We got a good deal and like it very much, as it is in a nice neighborhood and convenient for our needs.

During the summertime, we thought our utility bill was much higher than it should be, so we upgraded all…

Is Donald Trump a racist? Let's revisit, and you be the judge. He was charged with housing discrimination toward blacks by the Justice Department ln 1973. He settled for $100 million. His father was a member of the Ku klux Klan. He started the "Birther Movement," for lack of a better word for the…

In typical lawlessness, former President Barack Obama issued the unconstitutional DACA executive order, after proclaiming he had no right to do so.

The Deferred Act for Childhood Arrivals supposedly covers around 800,000 children brought here illegally by their parents, but also those who…

Patriotism is defined as “love for or devotion to one’s country.” True patriots seek to strengthen, confirm and celebrate the “we” in “we the people.” Patriotism goes far beyond the spoken word and one shoe does not fit all. To make a…

It’s time to defrock the rhetoric. We are all racists. With some, it’s racial pride; others, it’s racial prejudice. The newest insanity is racial guilt. Unlike the new liberalism, a person’s skin color (race), like their sex, is determined by parentage, at birth. One cannot…

I read the Speak Up with great interest, and appreciate the caller who recently brought the issue of non-publication of Community Events, to the Editor’s attention. I, too, am a subscriber to the Rocky Mount Telegram and have made these same observations before. You read about something that…
