Many letters to this newspaper seem to think the founding fathers had it all right when they wrote the Constitution. Wrong!

Other writers believe the Constitution was inspired by God. Well, that’s debatable. What is clear is that it was written by a group of privileged white men, who took…

Every place you look in Robert Mueller's investigation, the same names keep popping up: FBI agent Peter Strzok and sleazy, foreign private eye — or "British intelligence agent" — Christopher Steele.

So it's rather important that they both are Trump-hating fanatics, and one was…

I am growing very weary of left-winged yuppies defending former President Barack Obama in the Telegram.

Obama was not a patriot, he was a globalist.

Plain and simple.

Obama couldn’t have cared less about the U.S. economic well-being.

He was and is a self-proclaimed socialist.

Why in the world is that dilapidated white church sitting in the brand new parking lot?

It is so close to the new building.

It would take a million dollars to restore that church.

Why wasn't that church condemned and the space…

I am calling about our educational system.

I find it hard to believe in today's society there are children in the fourth grade who are forming their letters from the bottom to the top and there is no space to determine where one word stops and the other starts.

Yet we talk about education and…

I am a retired police officer and I am appalled at the Rocky Mount police for charging a man who scared away a couple of prowlers/thieves by shooting his shotgun up in the air.

Maybe he should have shot at the thieves.

He should be given a medal instead of a citation.

Opinions abound in the news and in the media. But do you want someone else to determine what you believe? Labels are easy to produce and hard to remove. Critical thinking goes beyond parroting what we hear or read. It defines us as intelligent, caring people who earnestly want to know the truth and…
