What is that old saying? Turnabout is fair play? I also like that saying about karma, and what you sow that also shall you reap. Before this is over, Republicans will wish Hillary was elected so they could have done to her what they are about to go through.

They are locked into an untenable situation, one that is antithetic to the principles they have tried to sell like so much snake oil. They used to be against deficits, trade wars and Russia. And for Republicans to stand by Trump just shows they never stood for anything at all.

I'm a big fan of democratic norms, following precedent and our Constitution this Republican crowd and their dear leader have come to dismantle. They are using the tools of democracy to dismantle democracy itself.

They have played us and our system flawlessly if not heavy handedly. They consolidate their dark money to install those to pass the laws allowing money to count more than we the people. They sold their soul.

Should they impeach? What was the precedent set by Republicans under Clinton? The Republicans gained the Senate and the White House in the election after the impeachment. Will the Democrats learn from that election?

The Senate under McConnell wouldn't even take up the impeachment, so since there is no law saying how quick an impeachment has to be wrapped up, call the impeachment vote for the exact number of days McConnell held that Supreme Court seat open to steal the seat, to be voted on in 391 days. And every day, using the Benghazi precedent, investigate the Mueller report, one page per day.

Show the American people just what this modern Republican party represents.

What is that other old saying? My how the worm turns.

Tonight is a time to try my soul. I turned on my television around 9 p.m. and was ashamed of my fellow citizens of Pitt County. I heard “send her back” chanted by those citizens. I heard the sounds of hostility in those voices I never believed I could hear from people I might know. I…

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…
