I am growing very weary of left-winged yuppies defending former President Barack Obama in the Telegram.

Obama was not a patriot, he was a globalist.

Plain and simple.

Obama couldn’t have cared less about the U.S. economic well-being.

He was and is a self-proclaimed socialist.

Obama defended…

In reference to the tragic school event in Florida, I wanted to begin by saying the perpetrator, a Floridan, was required to be at least 18 years of age to purchase an AR-15.

That is entirely too young for such a powerful weapon for a child.

However the caveat is that he could not purchase a beer…

We took a Sunday afternoon drive downtown to see the new event center.

Why in the world is that dilapidated white church sitting in the brand new parking lot?

It is so close to the new building.

It would take a million dollars to restore that church.

Why wasn't that church condemned and the space…

I am calling about our educational system.

I find it hard to believe in today's society there are children in the fourth grade who are forming their letters from the bottom to the top and there is no space to determine where one word stops and the other starts.

Yet we talk about education and…

I am a retired police officer and I am appalled at the Rocky Mount police for charging a man who scared away a couple of prowlers/thieves by shooting his shotgun up in the air.

Maybe he should have shot at the thieves.

He should be given a medal instead of a citation.

If I were the president, I don't think I would have so much to say about a witch hunt on the part of the Democrats when your own administration is providing so much fuel for this investigation.

The president's own son was meeting secretively with Russian operatives during the campaign and then the…

I worth like for the city of Rocky Mount to consider a different traffic light going into Sam's Club. Since they are putting in a new bridge, what if they make it a blinking yellow light going into Rocky Mount when the lights change green instead of having to sit and wait?

There is not much traffic…

We as a society deal with death all kind of ways, however it happens.

Does the newspaper believe that Sunday, the day that most citizens take to praise God, to present facts about black males dying in homicides on the front page?

This was a sad day when deaths of black citizens were injected with…

Recently I read with dismay the comments from the caller complaining about the number of homeless people in our area standing on street corners begging to motorists passing by.

I was reminded of a passage in the Bible where Jesus was teaching his disciples on the Mount of Olive.

He said “I…

I am concerned about the efficiency of the U.S. Postal service.

They seem to be either losing, misplacing or delivering to a wrong address.

I was supposed to receive a prescription for one of my medications by mail in February 2017.

According to the postal service, they received it initially and…
