Hey, there are a lot of big movies opening up this month. One is a “Star Wars” installment and another involves Matt Damon becoming 5 inches tall.

I am mentioning this just to prepare you for a short discussion of gun laws. There’s been another big vote in Congress, and attention…

Whoever suggested bringing Willie Williams back to Rocky Mount deserves a gold star.

I've known him since my childhood because he and my dad were partners in the early '70s.

He is a good man and the only one who could ever fill former Chief Manley's shoes.

I wish he would take the job full-time.…

Nearly 9 million children across the country are in danger of losing their health insurance unless Congress moves to reauthorize the Children’s Health Insurance Program.

The joint federal and state program, which provides health insurance to children and pregnant women whose families have…

When Democrats attack pro-growth tax reform as “trickle-down economics,” I can understand their rhetorical intent. But the charge is silly on multiple levels – including the fact that every Democrat who ever serves in state or local office spends great time and effort to try…

I am calling about how many things in the news that don't make sense.

I thought one of President Trump's big things was trying to cut or trim the fat. He was going to get rid of some of the things like spending money to study the mating habits of turtles or where sharks swim etc.

In a recent paper, Gail Collins wrote a very great article about the shaky start to November for the Oval Office.

One to show that he could, so that more people had to hear him talk and to bad mouth Obama and Clinton so he could undo…

Come on, Charlie. Say it isn’t so. Say you didn’t harass all those women.

Ah, but it is so. There’s the rub. Charlie Rose has admitted to these acts of harassment.

All these other prominent figures being accused of sexual harassment are mostly foreign to us. Harvey Weinstein? Al…

There is a line often attributed to an unknown Chinese source: “May you live in interesting times.”

And we do.

A very strange man lives in the White House. Another scary guy far away plays with nuclear missiles as if they were sparklers. The Arctic is melting. Oh, and Congress is in…

I just had to call to sing the praises of Donald J. Trump.

The stock market is at all time highs and economic growth is higher now than at any time during President Obama's term in office.

Hopefully that tax cut will go through and President Trump can get back on repealing the Obama health tax.…

The hypocrisy in this country gets more outrageous by the day. How people who claim to be God-fearing can lie for this president is beyond me.

Lying and putting personal beliefs above morality and the good of the country is the new age of Trump. Honor and integrity be damned. Washington has become…
