Conservatives conserve nothing

Loading…

Tuesday, March 26, 2019

What exactly is it that conservatives conserve? They certainly don't conserve our clean air or water, in their fervent fixation to dismantle all regulations, including the Clean Air and Clean Water acts. So they obviously aren't concerned with conserving our very health.

We are borrowing another trillion per year from the Chinese to make up for the Trump/Republican tax scam that benefitted billionaires and corporations, so conserving our treasury isn't a priority of theirs. By the way, those who stupidly say, “Trump is a billionaire so he isn't beholden to anybody,” ignore the bald faced corruption of enacting tax policy in cahoots with his then-sycophantic House and Senate that saved himself cumulative billions.

Look at all the ways Trump enriches himself from the office of the presidency, in violation of the emoluments clause of the Constitution. He said he'd drain the swamp, but lied; what he did was install the biggest swamp monsters he could find, putting those in charge of the various agencies that were created to protect us, those who want to dismantle those agencies.

His business style has been likened to a crime syndicate, and the information that is already public knowledge is already enough to have put someone else in jail. His actions and policies are antithetic to Christ's teachings, a betrayal of our Constitution, in contravention of all established norms and he lies as a matter of pathology.

He recently said he has the military, the police and bikers on his side, and things may turn ugly soon. Do we still have incitement laws? At this point I am suspect of his enablers, and distrust the judgement of anybody who still believes in him. Christ said “If your eye offends thee, pluck it out.” Now I know what he meant.

The Trump-instigated chant (“Send Her Back”) didn't surprise me, but I am not one who believes this is Greenville's culture. Greenville citizens have always been cordial to me, even the ones who hate my guts.

Trump was proud of himself as he fired up his brain-dead fans and approved the…

In a childhood song, all that the bear that went over the mountain got to see was another mountain. It was my introduction to the sameness of life’s patterns. The steady ticking of the clock, the endless drumbeat of the mundane, and sometimes, the horror that never stops.

This is also true…

David Ransom enlisted in the Continental Army believing in the enlightened concepts of democracy espoused by brilliant men and women in Europe and the colonies. There would be justice through an independent judiciary and a representative legislature that could prevent the recurrence of tyranny.…

I have a confession to make. I was at the president's rally Wednesday night, and when the chant "send them back" broke out, I joined in, with enthusiasm. And I have another confession to make. I do not feel the slightest need to apologize to anyone for doing so. Why should I apologize for…

Here’s a message for all you Pitt Countians and others who attended Wednesday’s Trump rally on the ECU campus, only to disgrace yourselves, the university and the city by mindlessly uttering that crass, misguided and ill-informed chant, “Send her back!” How pathetic! Where…

Why is America great? Because this nation was formed by people who desired to worship their God — the creator of heavens and earth and his son Jesus, our savior, freely and not by a prescribed way mandated by a government. These early Christians made a covenant with God that if he would…

Donald Trump visited Greenville again recently. He must like it a lot ... he certainly gets a warm reception from the rally participants.

I like North Carolina a lot, too, and used to take my vacations in your beautiful coastal towns and spend a fair amount of money in condo rentals,…

I’m a proud native of Pitt County, born at the old Pitt Memorial Hospital in 1967. Tonight, however, I’m angry that a town and community I love would be host to and party to such a disgusting and vile display of bigotry, racism and hatred peddled by the Liar-in-Chief.  

He…

I am saddened to hear that my hometown has attracted national attention for hosting a rally for the re-election of the president and vice-president.

As a former student at East Carolina University, I’m shocked that the university’s chancellor and board of trustees would sanction an…

Mr. President, quit destroying the things we took for granted over the Democrat Obama-Biden years. You are making us go to work and get better paying jobs. I was used to my 401K getting a modest single digit growth prior to you coming into office. Now I have to put up with double digits.…
