America's ruling class can no longer depend on the poor boys to go and fight its wars like they did in Vietnam.
That's not going to happen again.
It's too bad for Donald Trump and all those like him.
Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.

I have a question that I would like to ask to the readers of this newspaper.
Is there anyone else out there who has to go to work when there is inclement weather outside?
Recently when we experienced the snow fall here, there were several corporations and retailers that were open who had the…

War is idiotic.
All of these countries where we have fought major wars ... we are now trading partners with them and in some cases allies.
I am talking about Germany, Japan, Vietnam and Korea.
It is really silly to go to these wars and then turn around and become best buddies. It is like the…

I am fed up with the liberal, socialist element in Rocky Mount continually bashing Donald Trump.
The Dow is at record highs every week. Business optimism could not be stronger. Record high employment numbers.
Someone said that Trump was just a businessman. Thank God he is just that.…

I would like to make a comment about the Speak Up in the Dec. 31st paper.
The caller thinks it would be a good idea to send convicts over to fight the wars.
That is what we need to do is to trust our national security to criminals who may shoot anyone at will including their own.

We spend all of this time, money and effort preparing the roads in anticipation of a winter storm's arrival.
We pre-treat the roads and then the storm comes and people drive along as if nothing has changed.
Well everything has changed.
If the government would take some of its vehicles and put them…

This is a comment to Mike Armstrong.
Hallelujah, you have said exactly what I thought and what many of the good citizens of Rocky Mount are also feeling.
Hiring someone for a salary of $120,000 is crazy.
That, of course, is like you said – double what most of the good citizens get paid.…

I am calling in reference to a suggestion.
There are a lot of events in the Rocky Mount, Nash and Tarboro areas that the readers and the citizens of these areas are not aware of.
I get the newspaper daily and I am constantly reading about events that have taken place.
It would be wonderful if the…

There is a fine for littering on the highways.
Why don't they do something about these big-time farmers who drive miles from the cotton fields to where they are taking it to their farms?
They litter all up and down the highway and don't pick it up.
They should be made to either pay a fine or cover…

I am calling regarding the recent comments pertaining to Donald Trump.
I did not vote for Barack Obama, but I accepted him as my president, as he was legally elected.
I think the people should do the same thing for Donald Trump.
In fact, I am proud that I supported him and will continue to support…
