Tax breaks not worth the price

While watching TV today they interviewed a gentleman who has ALS and is confined to a wheelchair. He is a young man and has a child 18 months old. He will probably never see his child reach the age of 6. He depends on Medicaid to help him with his medication.

The gentleman was nearby Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, who was being interviewed by one of the major TV networks. He asked to talk to Sen. Graham about those who would lose their Medicaid and Medicare due to the new tax reforms. Sen. Graham would not talk to him, and took off in the opposite direction in a hurry. The gentleman was arrested by the police and led away.

Sen. Graham, you are an Air Force veteran. I am also an Air Force veteran, and if you were to walk into a room I would not stand up and walk out as to not disrespect the rank that you held while in the Air Force, but I would not acknowledge you as a senator or a person.

All of you that think Trump is doing great for America, stop and look to what he has done. He has broken relations with other countries and he has started riots in the Middle East. We are close to a nuclear war with North Korea.

As for his big tax break, he is cutting programs such as Medicare, Medicaid and cutting Social Security. My family and I depend on Medicaid for my daughter with special needs, and my wife and I are on Medicare. If you really think that this tax cut is going to help you then please attend one of my speeches where I am trying to sell prime property in the Everglades.

Adding to this tragedy is the fact that…

As we watch the very unfortunate issue unfold in the town of Bethel involving the tenants living in Whitehurst Trailer Park, one does not have to be a rocket scientist to see that these wonderful citizens have been thrown under the bus and forgotten by the town’s government.

What do Bethel…

With scorching heat and raging wildfires in the West and torrential downpours and massive flooding in the East, global warming is not just about a gentle sea rise any more. These tragic consequences of dumping greenhouse gases into our atmosphere call for drastic remedies.

For starters, we should…

The editorial “Pence would restore democracy, irk Democrats” is just another example of the globalists trying to subvert the will of the American People. The line, “a Pence presidency sometime in the coming year is more likely than not,” is absolute establishment fantasy and…

Everyone who either attends classes or is employed at the ECU main campus is well aware of the dire parking problem. The university has reacted to this dilemma by building parking garages (at very…

I left “Dixie” at age 12 and I still remember the hard-packed red clay school playgrounds. If you’ve been receiving Social Security for a few years, you’ll probably recall some of the popular games during recess:

Kick ball, dodge ball, roll at the bat, mumbley peg (yes, some…

Our president exaggerates frequently, having made 4,229 false or misleading statements to date, reports The Washington Post. This statistic is immediately dismissed by millions of our citizens as “fake, fake, disgusting, news,” as the president recently said in Pennsylvania, where…

On July 12 the Pitt County Board of Elections met to decide on an early voting schedule. Public comments were allowed at the beginning of the meeting, with one opportunity to comment. Citizens were not allowed input after that. My concerns are about Sunday voting. Statistics prove civic-minded Pitt…
