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?

I was out of state when Sen. John McCain passed away and I just wanted to thank him for being the true American who served his country beyond the call of duty.

I was part of the maintenance crew from Norton Air Force Base in San Bernardino, California, that prepared the C-141 cargo airplanes that…

During the summer, while seated in a local eatery waiting to order a bagel, I encountered a stranger who placed my order (gratis).  With my permission, we chatted briefly and shared a few commonalities (one of which was arthritis). As we seperated, I expressed appreciation and left feeling…

For someone to support this president after everything he has said and done must require a boatload of cognitive dissonance and is truly a Faustian bargain.

What if it was your sister whose (expletive deleted) he grabbed and bragged about it? What if Obama said that? If you wouldn't give him the…

Inspiration comes from the oddest places sometimes.

I was reading an IGN article about how Sony refuses to open its PlayStation consoles to cross-platform gameplay for the popular video game Fortnite due to Sony’s longstanding rivalry with Xbox owner Microsoft.

It got me wondering as to why…

Why does Trump show respect to Sen. John McCain only after he dies? We all remember what Trump said about McCain: I only like people who are not captured. McCain was a Navy pilot who was shot down and was a POW for over five years.

This coming from a coward like Trump who would not join the…

As a product of public education and the daughter of a public-school teacher, I wholeheartedly support the Red4Ed movement. Attending May 2018’s march in Raleigh did nothing but reinforce my beliefs in the need for more funding for education, including raising teacher salaries. The sheer…

Hurricanes and dangerous stormwater don’t wait around for elected officials to produce expensive studies for the shelf, kick crises down the road, and ponder political calculations. Greenville has a documented $350 million stormwater infrastructure challenge to avoid dangerous flooding. Dilly…

“Location, location, location” is not only the real estate agent’s mantra. It applies even more to meteorologists. And perhaps it applies to you if you read your gauge faithfully and record the totals.

Depending on where you live, this summer’s precipitation totals have…

According to the World Economic Forum’s Global Shapers survey in 2017, the most pressing world issue for millennials is climate change. Ninety-one percent of those surveyed agreed with the statement that “science has proven that humans are responsible for climate change.”

Summer is over and conversations about using reusable straws and saving the sea turtles are dying down now that we’re all not in “beach-mode” anymore. The tag #strawlesssummer focuses on a single object and time frame, and I don’t believe that it creates a lasting impact.…
