On Jan. 8, 1964, President Lyndon Johnson, in his State of the Union address, launched his War on Poverty. He pledged to eliminate poverty in America. Fast forward to August 2019, more than five decades later, several welfare programs and $25 trillion out of taxpayer’s pockets, the welfare…

It seems that now two views of the purpose of government are being revealed in the news. Some people in the USA (where people have the liberty to make their own decisions about their government) think that the purpose of government is to make sure everyone has enough food, shelter and clothing as…

Rocky Mount is in the unique position of being “bifurcated” in two different counties: Edgecombe and Nash. Together they are called the Twin Counties.
