Trump fixing where others failed

Why is it when Dewey Funkhouser writes in the DR, he can’t get his point across without attacking Christians. Doesn’t matter what subject he comments on, it’s always the Christians’ fault.

He tries, with little success, to compare what President Trump does with illegal immigration to Nazi Germany. Any normal, school-taught person would know through history the difference between the two.

He attacks privatizing schools, which is actually school choice, as if it’s the Republicans fault for people wanting their kids to get a better education. Maybe Dewey works in the public-school system. Don’t know and don’t care. I just have a hard time with people rationalizing illegal immigrants coming to this country and taking over jobs from carpenters, hospitality positions, landscape work, farming, etc., without going through the legal process.

This is not a new subject. Illegal immigration has been getting larger and larger through several administrations over the years. Thank God we have a president that isn’t doing this job for money, which is proven by him donating his presidential salary. He does this job because he truly cares for our country and the direction it has been going. President Trump wants to stop this illegal act and bring prosperity back.

When Barack Obama was in office, the Democrats had 60 votes in the senate and controlled every branch of government for a period of time. Why didn’t this get fixed? Where were the protesters then? I would like to think the normal average citizen can see through the Democrat’s hypocritical rhetoric that has become a do-nothing branch of government.

As far as Dewey’s statement that Republicans are losing and don’t even know it, I would like for him to go back and review the survey’s taken during the 2016 election. How did that work out for you?

A big shout-out to Alison Lord Stuart for her piece on voter IDs in Tuesday’s paper.

You are right on the “mark” regarding voter IDs. My husband and I have lived in many states, all of which required a voter ID at election time — until we came to North Carolina.

At each…

Last night (Monday, Feb. 11) I attended ECU baseball banquet in the new student union. There were almost 600 people there and they were treated to a great program.

Some facts that were revealed were that this team has a 3.44 grade point average which is the highest in the American Athletic…

Donald Trump once again exhibited his extreme ignorance, irrationality and intransigence in contradicting the analysis of his three top intelligence chiefs before the Senate Intelligence Committee on Jan. 29. It's hard to imagine how pompous a person must be to think he knows more than his FBI…

Mr. Kammerer's fine article on the Jones-Lee House (in The Daily Reflector on Sunday) highlights the urgent need to save one of the few remaining architectural structures of historic and aesthetic value left in our poor city.

Years and years of willful destruction and bureaucratic neglect pushed by…

It's official. We just had the longest government shutdown in history over nothing.

Democrats have agreed to fund $1.375 billion for 55 miles of physical barrier along the border, which is only a little more than what Trump would have gotten under a continuing resolution that funded the government…

Title IX has been a positive thing except where men's programs have been canceled to create slots for women. You can call it Title IX "balance," but ECU has 11 women's sports and only nine for men. To create this disparity ECU added women's lacrosse. Last time I checked, the state of North Carolina…

From Lake Norman to the Outer Banks, boating has long been a cherished pastime for many families across North Carolina.

Yet while many are familiar with the personal benefits you experience during a day on the water, the important economic contributions of boating are lesser-known.

Recently Courtney Patterson, a state NAACP leader, told a Greenville audience that the gains made by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 are in jeopardy. He encouraged Americans to be vigilant in protecting these rights and to exercise the privilege of voting.

I am tired of Democratic presidential hopefuls and their clean energy nonsense. Windmills and solar panels are generally a waste of time and money. Windmills don’t turn when there is no wind and solar panels don’t work when there is no sun. In each case the energy generated is DC, for…

If the legislature adopts the Carolina Cares plan advocated by Rep. Greg Murphy, hundreds of thousands of people will still be showing up at our hospitals without coverage, giving the hospitals the excuse to pad what they charge the rest of us in order to pay for treatment for the uncovered.…
