I keep seeing ads on TV with Doctors Murphy and Perry each accusing the other of being liberal.

Not to worry, neither are even close to being liberal. Neither will be the least bit concerned for the poor, the elderly, the sick, the environment or the country’s democratic principles.

Both will try to prevent affordable healthcare insurance. Both have promised to support Trump as he gives tax cuts to the wealthy, sells our national parks to the highest bidder and eliminates clean air and water rules. Both will support cuts to Social Security and Medicare, help destroy public education and help destroy our government infrastructure. Both will look away as government officials take children away from their parents and lock them in cages. Both will pass legislation to further voter suppression. Both will vote to allow avowed fascists on the Supreme Court. They’ll support their leader as he insults our democratic allies and cozies up to murderous dictators. Both will smile as he lies to us on a daily basis.

No, neither are even close to being liberal. You’ll get what you vote for either way.

I believe we should only spend what we take in. We should not keep giving the rich and the corporations more and more and more and hope the windfall trickles down.

I believe in sharing, and that if everyone brings just one dish to a covered dish dinner, there would be more than everyone could eat.…

Please listen to the news, read the papers, align yourselves with people who are engaged in politics... just stay abreast of the events in our state as relates to politics. Educate your family, friends and neighbors. Our political system in North Carolina is broken, and unfair district maps are the…

What does the mayor’s basement have to do with good government?

The traditional July break from meeting is a good time for the Greenville City Council to stop a bad practice—discussing the public’s business in afternoon “workshops” in a small conference room without…

Lawrence Watts, in July 4th’s Public Forum, challenged anyone to obtain and publish the "real numbers" of energy production by the Amazon Wind Farm in NC (near Elizabeth City). In 2018, according to windexchange.energy.gov, the production was more than 500,000 megawatt hours.

Regarding his letter to the Reflector on June 30, I don’t recall ever “having made [Milton Bland’s] acquaintance.” Perhaps Mr. Bland is simply too “bland” for one to remember. His comment that “ask[ed for] ... an unqualified favor ... Tinsley exudes a…

As the ECU Board of Trustees approaches the date to elect its new leadership, I'm reminded how poor that leadership has been over the past 3-4 years. The university is now transitioning to a new interim chancellor and from losses based on poor decision-making. Before any returning board member gets…

All local people need to know how refugee children are being treated at our border.

"There is a stench," according to an eyewitness to detention centers housing children who were taken from their families at the border. (Caitlin Dickerson's article, NYTimes, 6/21/19). 

According to this and…
