Crying racism desctructive

I spent over four years in Baltimore, Md., six in Los Angeles and about three years in New York City in addition to practicing medicine in the rural South for 50 years.

Never in any country newspapers have I read editorial pages that were more biased against any politician as are the big city newspapers against president Trump. The fact is this president won all the people outside the big cities in America. Actually, of the roughly 600 counties in America, Trump won all but 57.

Nevertheless, just about every editorial and cartoon in the big city newspapers concerning president Trump suggest that he is either ignorant, a racist or a bigot.

These attacks have not let up in spite of his accomplishments. In fact they have only gotten worse as this president endeavors to fulfill his promises to all Americans, rich or poor, black or white.

Ladies and gentlemen for the overwhelming majority of Americans, racism has legally and socially come to a standstill, and consequently America is a much stronger nation. We can no longer judge people by their skin color. It is common sense and proven scientifically. Furthermore every nation out of necessity has strict immigration laws.

However, if Democratic politicians and the press in our big cities continue to promote racism and the violence it engenders in order to get themselves elected or sell newspapers then all our cities are destined to become overrun with crime, drugs and poverty just as are the cities of California, which is rapidly becoming a ghost state.

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.

We are seeing the results of a megalomaniac who was born with a gold spoon in his mouth, who never had to answer to anyone, not to mention a co-equal branch of government. His lies of Mexico paying for a wall he promised are being exposed, so he…

Our Constitution set up a governmental system with three branches, coequal, with different functions.

Laws and budgets are mandated to be created by the legislative branch, through the votes of the members of the House and Senate (with budgetary bills originating in the House) with compromises…

For many years the clinical staff at ECU Physicians has been under tremendous pressure to at least break even and ultimately make the operation profitable, all the while at the disadvantage of treating a significant portion of underinsured and indigent patients that are not cared for by private…

Thank you for your incredible story on the grand opening of our new LGBTQ Center at ECU (Jan. 13). Your reporter was spot on that this will be a “Safe Harbor” for the most marginalized of our students.

I grew up in Everetts and my family were long time subscribers to The Daily Reflector.…

Bless your heart Pope Francis. Tear down that Vatican wall. Bless your heart President Obama. Tear down those walls around your Washington, D.C., estate. Bless your heart Speaker Pelosi. Tear down that wall around your Napa estate.

If walls are immoral, lead by example. These walls were built to…

After reading Bill Redding’s letter to the editor and viewing Sunday’s Meet The Press, I was prompted to add my thoughts on greenhouse gases and global warming. We are on the brink of a world disaster of a magnitude never seen before, except perhaps during the Ice Age.

Today (Tuesday) I was stunned to hear that Carol Folt will be resigning from her office as Chancellor of UNC Chapel Hill; but I was not as stunned as when I read the remarks made by Harry Smith, Chair of the UNC Board of Governors (BOG). In the wake of her announcement Smith stated that he was…

It's much too early to pick or accurately predict who might be the Democratic presidential nominee for 2020. But premature as it may be, and as totally uncertain with a wide and varied cadre of candidates, isn't it refreshing to see real, honest, down to earth human beings running for the office?…

With the death and funeral of President George H.W. Bush, our nation was jolted out of its dark mood by memories of a man who: frequently served his country with distinction; found nobility in his service to others; recognized that his moments of influence were fleeting and used those moments to…

I have a good plan for Silent Sam: Bring him to Little Washington, N.C., and put him in Oakdale Cemetery. I don’t think the people here will harm him.

The people here are much nicer than the people in Raleigh that are shipped in from every country and a whole lot of thugs, after all, the city…
