Mob rule cannot stand

If you were watching The History Channel last week, the events in Chapel Hill looked eerily like the events used to bring Lenin, Stalin and Hitler to power.

Reminiscent of the KKK, law enforcement and the chancellor appear intimidated by the drunken mob that tumbled the Civil War memorial erected in 1913 by granddaughters of loved ones lost on both sides of that war apparently because neo-abolitionists were offended by its presence.

The blessings of liberty have come at great cost, not only at Gettysburg, but also Normandy. The carnage on the south side of Chicago serves as a reminder that those blessings of liberty have not been secured for everyone. For those offended by the destruction of this memorial, “shutting out the light to expose the shadows” only serves those who celebrate the Divided States of America.

It appears the Trump administration is trying to find a way to get us into a war with Iran without Congressional approval. Why else sacrifice our allies the Kurds?

I disagree with op-ed columnist, Marc Thiessen’s assessment that “The cry that America is fighting ‘endless…

In his most recent “tour de ignorance” in Sunday’s Reflector, Vic Corey again praises the Trumpster and condemns the Democratic Party as “Communist.”

Some time ago, after a writer applauded Mr. Corey as a product of the “school of hard knocks,” I lamented…

Two years ago, after becoming a consistently obstructionist voice on the Greenville City Council, Calvin Mercer was facing the daunting prospect of running against and probably losing his seat to the forward-thinking Brian Meyerhoeffer.

Mercer decided to try to put himself in power through the…

In his article it appears that Bill Redding in his letter (Don’t mix religion, politics, Oct 10) is deriding both Mr. Graham and President Trump for their religious beliefs. He is right that, only God can fix our problems, but he works through the efforts of his people as they do his will.…

When I go to the grocery store and buy a dozen eggs in a foam plastic carton, I always open the carton and check the eggs before I put them in my grocery cart. It is not that I think the grocery store would short change me, but I am investing some of my family money and need to check the eggs.

Our…

I can't remember a Republican politician ever admitting to being wrong about anything, or apologizing for any lousy deed he or she might have done.

Then comes former Republican Congressman Joe Walsh, who in the past lied nearly every time he opened his mouth. He made up lies about Obama/Democrats.…

I am in agreement with Nikki Haley, former ambassador to the UN, that President Trump’s victories are a big win for every America — unless you are a member of the Democratic/Communist party that is.

Our great president is working hard every day to make America more safe, more prosperous…

At the suggestion of my wife, we moved from Raleigh to Greenville two years ago this week. It was a great suggestion and we have loved being a part of this community.

After almost 40 years in Raleigh, Greenville is a nice change of pace. From what I read in the Daily Reflector, I am not sure that…

Opportunity exists for youth to develop their math skills, their problem-solving skills, and their social skills. The means for these desirable outcomes isn’t magic, it’s bridge.

Bridge is an excellent tool to develop critical thinking and inferential reasoning, plus it gives the youth…

Franklin Graham made a return visit to Greenville after 21 years and said that the "nation’s problems are spiritual" and "only God can solve it." Donald Trump said at the 2016 Republican National Convention "I alone can fix it".

If Graham thinks the nation’s problems are spiritual, why…
