Endless war must be addressed

“What would [a coherent national policy that take’s the country’s war’s seriously] look like? It would probably look like rescinding the open-ended Authorization for the Use of Military Force and making the president regularly go before Congress to explain where and why he was putting troops in harm’s way, what resources the mission required, and what the terms of success were. It would look like every member of Congress carrying out his or her constitutionally mandated duty to provide oversight of our military adventures by debating and then voting on that plan. It would look like average Americans taking part in that debate and scorning anyone who tried to tell them they couldn’t.” -— Two Decades of War Have Eroded the Morale of America’s Troops by Phil Klay, The Atlantic, May 2018

After participating in a Greenville Advocacy Team lobbying effort with Rep. Walter B. Jones, I am more alarmed that ever that we are on the verge of a Constitutional crisis. Rep. Jones is exasperated with the House leadership’s refusal to allow debate on how to end our ongoing wars. He cares deeply about the lack of congressional oversight and Congress’ failure to exercise its responsibility in the use of military force. Rep. Jones is a man of integrity who has worked tirelessly for our nation. The Advocacy Team movement seeks to build respectful and fruitful relationships with our elected federal officials. Thus far Jones is the only one of our congressional delegation that has met with us. We hope Sens. Thom Tillis and Richard Burr and Rep. G.K. Butterfield will also meet with us.

A recent column cites opposition to an anti-choice bill to claim that North Carolina Democrats are “rejecting moderates” yet ignores the party’s priorities, recent accomplishments, and the attacks on reproductive rights happening across the South.

Last year, on our Rural NC…

I would like to say thank you to the staff at Lake Forest Elementary School of Pitt County. Thank you so much for your dedication to the students there and “Creating Lifelong Learners.”

Can you even imagine a world without teachers like Ms. Williams, the kindergarten teacher and the…

Should we make it against the law for men to have vasectomies? Oh, that's right. It's men making the decisions (about women's bodies). Maybe the government needs to outlaw Viagra. That should eliminate some pregnancies. Perhaps our government should start litigating men's health care issues…

I have followed with interest your series on the opioid epidemic with which we are currently struggling. A major concern has to do with access to treatment. The standard of care for persons addicted to opioids is medication assisted treatment, a combination of medication, such as Buprenorphine or…

Behold: the father of lies is come. (John 8:44)

The Washington Post just announced that Trump has passed the 10,000 mark of provable lies. I have never seen as dishonest a bunch as every member of this administration.

Just look at Attorney General William Barr. He auditioned for his job by writing…

In response to Dr. Cook’s Public Forum submission, I agree with the need for greater price and coverage transparency from medical insurance companies. I do hope that someday soon we achieve that goal.

However, as a gastroenterologist (GI specialist), I was taken aback at your inadvertent…

As a physician, I am interested in learning about cost-effective practices. Last year, I attended a conference where the speaker, a physician and chief cancer control officer of the American Cancer Society, spoke about screening tests for colon cancer. He spoke about a non-invasive testing method…

I read with great concern, shock and some anger your May 6 article entitled "New ECU leadership faces significant challenges." As an alum and North Carolina taxpayer, I believe ECU deserves better leadership.

Your article indicated ECU has seen a $60-70 million swing in cash flow since 2016 with a…

Like most people, I read Bless Your Heart to get a mild chuckle and an occasional feel good story. However, I found the comment in the third to the last entry in Saturday's column to be offensive: "Women who have abortions (with the exception of rape and incest) are women with no morals." In my…

In his May 10 letter to the editor about the Muller report, Vic Corey opines that "(W)e are about to expose all the crooked players in our government — the majority being lying, godless Democrats."

While we acknowledge the First Amendment right to express opinions, it seems to me that Mr.…
