There is a Youtube video 1.5 minutes long filmed by Trump Jr. That shows Trump in the moments just before he made his speech that incited the US Capitol attack. Trump, Trump jr, Guilfold and Mark Meadows all are celebrating and dancing with excitement just before 5 Capitol police died.

It's sickening!

GC… I realize you are very upset, as anyone would be having been banned from their home county Newpaper. You must understand that the Bladen Journal is a privately owned entity and that your first amendment rights only apply to publicly owned media. The Bladen Journal cannot walk into your house and scribble on your wall without your consent, nor may you scribble on their wall without their permission. The Supreme Court has made this clear several times.

Bin Laden tried to attack the US Capitol and a handful of brave Americans overtook the terrorist and died in a plane crash in a Pennsylvania field. Bin Laden was found and killed him. Everyone even suspected of helping him were sent to Guantanamo Cuba, some are still there. Donald Trump conspired to hit our Capitol and succeeded. Donald Trump should suffer Bin Laden's fate too and all his terrorists should be sent to Guantanamo, starting with his accomplices in our House and Senate, then his propagandists like Rush Limbaugh and Shawn Hannity.

This will show the World that we will punish anyone who attacks America, including those who attacked America by committing Election fraud. Trump and his accomplices are akin to the core, pus and infection in a large Boil. This Trump Boil must be lanced and squeezed until all inside is expelled and the Boil irrigated and flushed of all the Pus.

Then our Country can heal.

On December 10, 2020 and again today January 11, 2021 another news outlet published an opinion piece on the freedom of speech. Credit, whoever is writing the opinion pieces for that news site; at least in opinion this news site is in favor of freedom of speech. UNFORTUNATELY, in reality the news site DOES NOT believe in freedom of speech for he, they, or whoever regulates comments on that site do not allow them by specific individuals who live in Bladen County.

As to the Trump flag flying in my front yard; it shall be retired with the same respect that an American flag is retired after President Donald J Trump's "tour of duty" ends. Believe that will take place on the 20th of this month.

What business did a Bladen County Commissioner have meeting with Trump's closest advisers in the same week that Thrump attempted to have our Congressional Representatives taken out? Did we the Citizens of Bladen County pay ANY of his expenses?

I think everyone in Bladen should follow the example set by Sally Salter .

Don't know who Sally Salter is? She saved Bladen County, and possibly the US by observing the movement of the Tories.

Billy: No foul in being passionate about the issues you feel strongly about. Hate to see anyone get so worked up over these sort of things. We are getting too old to let this rob our happiness and joy. I’ll say a prayer for you and you for me. Just to clean up a couple of points. For the record, I identify and am registered to vote as unaffiliated politically, but find myself leaning more in the past few years towards many of the Libertarian ideas. I think the line between Republican and Democrats gets moved back and forth as the wind blows it.
I do also identify as a MAN. Yes, just looked, I am. Since you seem to be one who identifies as a Liberal Democrat, I feel as your friend for many years, I would remind you that the party line is now the elimination of any reference to gender specificity in both referring to another living person or as it pertains to privacy matters, such as shared locker rooms, etc.
I know you know this and I do understand your reference of Tories meaning to segregate all Americans who identify as Republican or Conservative, but what the Tories and the Whig were in opposition to is minor league compared to the politically charged climate we have going on in the U.S. today. I imagine they would sit in the bleachers--The Tories on one side and The Whigs on the other--and watch in amazement and disbelief at the dysfunctional activities and wasteful taxpayer funded programs and levels of incompetence hard to find words for in our Federal, State and Local Governments. Yet, both sides claim they are doing this in the interest of all.
There is plenty of blame to go around. The Riots in 2020--some peaceful---some not so much, but I feel each had some outside funding and start-up and then they took on a life of their own. No excuse for the actions this past week at the Capital. Both parties for the past 12 years have had very electrifying leadership that seemed to have brought out the worst in our citizens. People are angry in America today. The 24-7 media and their nonstop Op..Eds. who claim to be “Fair and Balanced”, all benefit commercially from these events. There is no reason our people can’t work together for all its citizens. There is no reason any American is living homeless and does not have food to eat. There are plenty of employment opportunities in the U.S. for all citizens to work, support themselves and their families and for those who can’t or need other services, we are a generous nation both here and abroad. We pass out Trillions of dollars to people each year who can work but choose not to. That’s just not right.
I feel our adversaries are involved and promoting disruption and I feel we are being tested and God will judge us for how we handle these issues here and throughout the World in the months and years to come.
Stay well my friend.

Hi Mr. Butler!

We have not talked in quite a while, but I see you are still alive and kicking!

I believe it was Mark Twain that said (and I am paraphrasing) that it is far easier to make a man a fool than it is to convince him he has been made a fool.

But I encourage you to keep trying to convince them anyway😉

I would encourage every citizen to watch the video posted today by former California Governor Republican Arnold Schwarzenegger in which he discusses the violent insurrection that occurred in Washington on Wednesday, our responsibilities as US citizens, and the importance of standing up for the truth.

It is a deeply moving perspective that shows what America might come to if we do not stop the madness that is infecting millions of Americans.

Donnie, I will always love you. Pardon me for being upset!

The United States Capital was attacked by Donald J Trump yesterday and he is still alive. The thing that pisses me off is that a man who wanted to become a Dictator, directed an overthrow of The United States of America while he was sitting behind the resolute desk with a Portrait of Andrew "Trail of tears Jackson".on my oval office wall. Now is the time to look at the Old Testament.

Oh, by the way Donnie maybe you should look at the little thing called Bladen online opinion page to educate your thick skull and see that I have for many months been warning people like you about the man who recited the Snake poem 7 times at his rallies who yesterday attacked my Country.

He is trespassing and so is that scumbag Mark Meadows. They need to vacate the premises NOW!

These Traitors should never see sunlight again.

I will personally speak face to face with the next US Attorney General so that they know that we want hard Justice for Traitors who attacked our Nation. Treason should be stamped out, starting with "The Mother County ".

This one is gonna be fun watching a Lying POS who claims to be a Preacher. I have several issues with that Liar. Paint your water tanks instead of destroying our Town. Mark Harris will be shamed as he should be. I can't wait to show the Attorney General the video from Bladen online of the man that bailed out a Traitor.

To Billy Butler RE: Changing Party by Brisson/Peterson. Billy, as you know, for years in Bladen the Democratic party ruled the agenda in Raleigh and to an extent, in the County. Things changed, as did our Legislative representative. Glad William moved to the Majority Party where he can get things accomplished important to our County, plus, he already had a pretty well established position with the Republicans. You know how things work in politics. I personally supported this move and think it was the wise and proper move for him to make at the time. As for the County Commissioners, can't really speak to that. This group of 9 should be nonpartisan and attempt to represent all 38,000 citizens of the county and not be a party-line representation. Everyone has their thoughts on if this is actually the case and each to his/her own. We do have some new Commissioners and I know at least one, Rodney Hester, will vote what he feels is most practical for his district and the County, plus the right thing to do, regardless of his party affiliations. I'm sure the other two will also, just not as familiar with them yet. Time will tell. Keep entertaining us. Always interesting. Bladen County needs you to bring some of that energy back to where it started.

No shortage of a "Single" Opinionated Banter on this site. Kind of a good thing that it is way to the Right side of the Toolbar, yet it’s mostly filled with Left Wing venom. However, I must say, now and again, I do read it and it does provide a chuckle and a "WOW, I Can’t Believe He Really Thinks This Way?” As one who rarely comments here, allow me to opine for a second.
Speaking for myself, as one who voted for the only Presidential candidate on our ballot with a chance to win, who had demonstrated he was opposed to a socialist agenda, initially, I suspect like me, most of us will simply take a break from what seems to be a lifetime presidential term. We will be joyful and seek things that make us happy with life and accept the fact that this election cycle is, thank God, finally over, yet we know behind curtain number two, those political ads are being prepared now and will start appearing in about 10 months for the mid-terms. I can only hope as a major point of Legislative business, our State Legislators from both parties throughout the U.S. will do everything in their power to make sure there are not processes and procedures that give any voter doubt that the election is rigged and firmly understand where the authority lies in state election procedures.
Secondly, I suspect most of us will be looking to do the things each of us feel important to our families, take steps to protect assets we may have accumulated after many years of hard work and sacrifice and will probably continue to scratch our heads in wonderment as the dollars keep being sent out of Washington, DC like business cards being passed out at an Extended Car Warranty Convention.
Third, as we have often stated to our Left Wing supporters, Elections DO have consequences, so the shoe is now on the other side now. I suspect many of us will be watching as the Harris/Biden ticket supported by Pelosi/Schumer will now attempt to put into place as many of the agenda items as they can during the first six months of 2021. Let's just hope there will be some centrist remaining in both chambers who can’t be bought or given favor by Pelosi/Schumer and the damage can be reasonably contained until many of these career politicians can be replaced. Remember, House members must run to be reelected every two years, so many of them will be running understand we are watching, so don’t come around next time with your hands out expecting support. We will primary you out if at all possible. Let's also hope and pray at the first resistance, the “Anti-American protestors who feel everyone should get a trophy just for showing up, do not burn the “one-time occupied but now vacant” businesses to the ground.
I look forward and have high hopes that our people and our nation will continue to respect each other and be respected in the world and that we don’t completely sink under the weight of our new proposed “Blended America” proposed values, where everything and everyone can come and go, abortions become as routine as a dental checkup, 16 year old boys (sorry that is gender specific) are allowed to freely use and dress in the girls (sorry, gender specific also) locker rooms and that prayer can be concluded with an AMEN and not A-Woman.
We somehow made it the last four years and the to our surprise, the previous eight, and I’m sure we will make it through this third times a charm, old white guy.

I hope everyone reading this will be reminded daily of the fact that William Brisson and Charles Ray Peterson were elected as Democrats but decided that the Big Business or whatever else was more important than us. Brisson sees his 92% voting record as a jewel. He has no reason being where he is. Charles Ray Peterson is being groomed by these Tories to take Brisson's place. I trust neither one of the two in a shithouse with a muzzle on.

Pardon me Charlotte, Momma and Mr. Robert for cussin , Jesus and I are Mates. He gave me a pass on this one !

Trump and his Loyal Tories are attempting a Coup against the United States on the 6th of January.
They are a threat, they are guilty of Treason. If these fools don't sit down and shut up they will be greeted by Millions of Swords beaten from Plowshares. They can choose Bullets or plowshares but the end war will leave many injured. The People of the United States of America will rise up and crush those who are defying our Constitution. My Vote will stand just like yours and be counted. Mitch McConnel is a man who has slithered under our doorways but he seems unaware as to how much he is despised for his appetite for sheer power

These Tory Loyalists who have been brainwashed by the Right Wing Propagandists like Limbaugh and Hannity are too stupid to win a bitter fight for our Democracy.

On January 6th we will witness the last attempt of a Coup by Trump and his elected Cronies against America's sweetest foundational benefit, a right to vote. Putin, Trump and his devotees must be imprisoned for attacking Our Nation from within.
If these Idiots want to see a fight, they'll see one close enough to spit on it. These Idiots will be shamed and convicted of Treason against the United States of America. Donald Trump and the Elected officials who are trying to steal our way of voting must be prepared for the steps up to a strong and sturdy Gallows. They won't need steps coming back down.

Many things are trivial now a days but attacking our Democracy will bring out 100,000 times more Patriots than the Tories, Proud Boys and the Klan can muster combined.

America is under attack from within by Big Money lobby and weak ass Politicians. There lies the valid argument for Tarring and feathering. Putin should ride that first Rail, Trump and McConnel can wear a double yoke...

In the next few days we'll see if all out War is to begin.

Don't usually make two post in a row on the Opinionated Banter; however, there is an article in the other news source for Bladen County that definitely needs CORRECTING. It is in relationship to the Board Of Elections meeting Tuesday at 5 P.M. Went as a citizen/voter of Bladen County and to observe the ballot counting process as an observer for the Republican Party of Bladen County. Was not going to comment about the meeting BUT the article by the ONS in Bladen County struck a nerve in me.

First, several months ago the citizens of Bladen County fought "tooth and nail" to get the Pledge of Allegiance put on the agenda of the meetings. Thought that fact was settled and of course as most of you know the board or board chairperson did away with the meeting agenda. What transpired was that certain members of the board said the Pledge was written by a racist and by putting the Pledge in before the meeting began, the members of the board that did not want to participate in saying the Pledge did not have to be in the meeting room. Things happen very quickly in board meetings. When I arrived at the meeting and the chair person called it to order; NO PLEDGE, NO PRAYER. Well, that shot down what the people of Bladen County fought for several months earlier.

Next, to the coverage of the meeting itself. The statement "the panel of Democrats" followed by all members of the Boards names is a gross negligence and outright lie. The other news source should print a CORRECTION of the article and offer an apology to the two REPULICAN members of the board. Haven't hear anything of them resigning as two members of the state board did several weeks ago. Let is be known, the REPUBLICAN PARTY of Bladen County is proud of its two members on the board. Since today is VETERANS DAY, and both of them are Veterans it would be "good" journalism to offer Emery White and Michael Aycock an apology as well as an apology to the REPUBLICAN PARTY of Bladen County headed up by Mr. Wayne Schaeffer. By the way, the REPUBLICAN majority on the Board of Commissioners would be kept regardless of how the #3 position in the County Commissioner race turns out; that is unless I am posting "poor" journalist information. And of course, the Republican Party certainly hopes Commissioner David Gooden pulls out his race for the third spot on the commissioner board against current Democrat Commissioner Micheal Cogdell.

Think the voters spoke loud and clear in the election last Tuesday. By the way, I was at the Board of Election meeting yesterday and the time I was there until I had to leave about 6:35 PM; I did not see Mr. Alan Wooten, the editor of the other news source in Bladen County. He might want to talk to the person who either gave the information on the meeting to him or either wrote it and he just rubber stamped it. If Mr. Wooten was there, my apologies.

One last thing, there is so much going on in the elections process now that it is hard to keep up with it, EARLY VOTING in my opinion is the culprit in a lot of what is going on. Looks like there has got to be an education of the voters or do away with early voting and mail in ballots except for ARMED SERVICE folks serving out of their precinct. And to quote Forest Gump, "that's all I got to say about that".

Wayne, thank you for the article about the recent election. Would like to add, even the Presidential race has not been decided yet. Thank God, the election is decided when the last "legal" vote is counted. Then and only then does the candidate who got the most "legal" Votes WIN. Thanks for your leadership of the Bladen County Republican Party.

William, leave it up to former president barack hussein obama to get involved in people dying. Believe made a start of that. By the way, William, how often do you come back home for the funeral of people you knew in Bladenboro. Do you go every funeral of kin people of all your drivers?

Out of your own mouth William you have admitted America in in the beginning stages of "Fascism" and joe biden is the tool you democrats thought would carry it out. You really are carried away with Fascism, Hitler, Mussilini, Putin, etc.

I served under that great commander-in-chief named LBJ. He lied about the Veitnam War, but his biggest lie was when he said his anti Bible "great society" was going to do away with poverty. I had already read and believed the Bible so I knew he was a liar. You are someone to talk to anyone about being enlightened. A socialist democrat listening to Rush Limbaugh or Sean Hanniity would be similar to the devil going to church every time the doors are open to worship God.

By the way, a man does not make the Presidency what it is; the Presidency makes the man. Yes sir, I would gladly serve under Commander-in-chief Donald J Trump just as I served under liar Commander-in-chief LBJ. That is the oath I took as I entered the military; to do my part in defending this nation and to follow the chain of command. The way I see it, I have served under many CIC 's and the one i'm serving under today is one of the better ones I have served under if not the best. But then you would not understand that.

You Trump cultists are too stupid to realize that you are being used like toilet paper. 700 Trump cultists are 6 feet in a hole, hammer dead because of the Orange man holding rallies and not following any CDC rules. Herman Sanders is 1. He died a week after the rally he attended maskless in Oklahoma. Have you heard Trump mention him at all? You are being used to get a lying, cheating and stealing man elected. Benedict Arnold is the only American traitor I've ever heard of. No other US President has publicly asked Russia or anyone else to help him attack America through our Electoral system. Did you not see what numerous Patriotic military and intelligence Officers said during the impeachment? Qanon, Fox, Limbaugh and the Radio stations misinforms a lot of weak minds. The first stage of Fascism is getting people to dismiss the truth and only believe their Propaganda. All news is news, one must consider the source. You sure do quote these Fascist talking points often. The same ones that I hear on those 622 radio stations. I got the 622 radio outlet figure from listening to Shawn Hannity blabbering about challenging a Democratic Congressman to come on his show on 622 stations. I watch and listen to everything and so should you, you might see the light, not darkness
You say you are a Veteran. Yet You still support a liar who didn't do anything when our Intelligence people found that Putin was paying money to the Taliban for the ears of our Military Sons. I pity your misguided soul.

William, There was a song not too many years ago that said, "One is the loneliest number"; thank you for finally admitting to the readers of this forum what is wrong with you. You are the ONE and ONLY person I have ever seen on this or any forum to make a statement about any American saying they loved Putin or mentioned Hitler and Mussolini. With your stance on this forum, it would surprise me if you have ever heard a Rush Limbaugh Broadcast or listen to a FOX news broadcast. What you are hoping to prove by your extreme "socialist" viewpoint is way beyond my comprehension. See what I'm trying to tell; you even know how many radio stations Limbaugh and Hannity are on. It is really beyond me why a person would be knowing how many radio stations two conservative talk show host were on unless it was those two talk show host. These are the same kind of people who make it their business to keep up with how many lies any given individual would be telling. That has got to be a lonely life which takes us right back to "one is the loneliest number". Are you one of those Ones. William.

If you are talking about treason, you better stay tuned for what happens with a certain past VP and how he said he knew nothing about his son's businesses when all the time money was coming to him from the wife of the Mayor of MOSCOW through his sons "businesses". By the way, William, would you hire a man who had NO trucking experience as an expert and possibly to take over your trucking outfit when you retire? And on top of that, with an exhorbitantly HIGH salary?

Have you ever heard tell of an ex President of the United States executed for treason. Remember, William, he is still President of the United States of America. To come from a little rural town in southeastern North Carolina, William, you have "gone" a far ways away. At this rate, the people of Bladen County may not even want you back in the county after you retire; of course, you might get back on the good side of Mother Bladen residents by bringing two or three 100 employee companies with you when and if you decide to come back home.

Trump and the Republicans seem naive about Putin. The Republicans have not realized what Hitler and Mussolini did with constant propaganda. Thank God Trump is finally going to get a fair trial. I hope they don't execute him for Treason. He should be placed in Rikers Island General population for life. We won't be paying millions for his body guards and Resort lodging. He'll be just fine.

William, no wonder you are not getting a good nights sleep; you are evidently up all night watching you tube videos. Why not try, in the third or fourth watch of the night, to read the word of God. Or you could see if Your Tube has videos of biblical things. If your candidate is put in the White House you better keep that Bible closer than ever.

Another tip; try to listen to believable current news. Seems it told us matter of factly that there was no collusion, for sure they told us that the President had not committed any impeachable offenses.

One question William, if your candidate is put in the White House; will Dr. Jill be by his side every waking moment to make sure he is doing okay medically. His vehicle horn blowing little episode on election caused her to have to help him remember names as he got deeper into his speech.

William, evidently you did not get a good night rest. I realize full well that people read what is written on this site. You might want to consider that as many people who read this site remember you; they remember your family here in Bladenboro and the ones who speak to me about the comments you make on this site cannot believe the things you post. A good example is in your recent post about Americans defending Putin; have not seen that on this site. But I have seen at least one American bash our President when the Bible tells us to pray for him.

One thing is for sure, the GOP does not defend any Communist. For you to even hint at it is disgrace on you. Explaining history and the way Communist have acted down through the years, is a far way from defending them. But one thing is for sure, if this election "finally" does put your candidate in the White House, then Bernie, Nancy, Charles, AOC, and the list goes on will give you and this country a good dose of socialistic communism AND I don't think you or any American is going to like what they see. And to cap it all off your candidate has lots of experience "buddying" up to communist leaders in the world; all it has taken is a few million dollars "through his son" into your candidates bank account and anything has went. The sad part is if he lands up in the White House ANYTHING WILL GO AGAIN. Why, he might even appoint Hunter as ambassador to UKRAINE, RUSSIA, CHINA, NORTH KOREA, and all Communist countries; and all he will do is fly from on Communist Country to another collecting the money, it will be all cash transactions. BUT HOLD ON, he is not in the White House yet!!!!!!!!!

And William, for the love of young people; please don't us the kind of language you used in your last post. Sounds to me like you are also encouraging "Islamic Jihadist"; you do know what they do to the heads of Americans they capture? It is so gruesome that the major news networks will not even show it. Maybe they should start, to show our citizens what we are up against.

First, let me give a shout out to voters in Bladen County of all persuasions that delivered just about a clean sweep for Republican candidates in races on the ballot in Mother Bladen. Don't think anyone can say it has not been an interesting election cycle.

William, you certainly bring some interesting ideas to light concerning Mother Bladen and its towns. Considering the fact that there is not one single "Great Redwood" tree in Mother Bladen, don't think a discussion on "Turger pressure" is going to erupt out at the "old country store" as Mr. Robert Hester remembers them. It may be important, but for sure, there are other topics that need to not only be "talked about' but also "acted on".
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 11/03/2020 at 10:14 pm:
GC, may I clarify. I think of it more like Turger pressure. Turger pressure is how plants like the Great Redwoods stay upright. Where tiny cells work collectively to pass nutrients 300 feet up, strong enough to withstand the strong winds. The US treasury has the tax money from all taxpayers. I have no problem with sharing my money through taxes paid with people and places in need. That's how we roll . Heck We have the printing machines for creating money.
America is in a major bind due to Covid . In addition our small towns have been crumbling due to Republicans voting 91% for Corporations. In the future our Representatives need to be monitored to see if we can get to 50% Citizens and 50% Corporations.
G C Bryan G C Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 11/03/2020 at 9:39 pm:
William, no doubt you are a dyed in the wool blue dog democrat. Why, because the word free has begun to pop up in your post. And of course if you know anything you know there is nothing "FREE". Have no idea where you got the 5 trillion dollars but I know where it will be gotten if God forbid your candidate wins the election. Are you ready for the tax increases this would bring about, are your drivers ready for the tax increases this would bring, are the people you haul for ready for the tax increases, are you prepared to pay $5 a gallon for fuel for your rigs, are you ready for your Mother to pay a price she can't afford for heating fuel, are you prepared to see the town you seem to be so concerned about disappear. It is already hurting, the kind of tax increases that will pay for the 5 trillion dollars CERTAINLY WILL NOT BE FREE. Just where do you expect tax payers to get money when all they have is used to pay taxes? When you have the solution to all this, let our town know.

Are you trying to tell us that you got all your rigs and terminal, if you have one, at the government till. The government has stuck its money grabbing and paying out until it reached tobacco, "dairy cows", and anything else you can name. It won't float but so long, William. Have you heard of Venezuela? Once one of the most prosperous little nations on the face of the earth, now bankrupt because of the "socialist idea" of everything free. Never has worked, never will work.

Tell you what might work, men like yourself the Lord has blessed bring this businesses back to Bladenboro. We still have some great business people in Bladenboro but we certainly need more. I believe Hester had a vision of business "booming and blooming" in Bladenboro, I believe the folks involved with Boost the Boro see the same thing; I believe Bladen Blooming has the same vision, I believe the committee of 100 has the same vision. The economy is tough right now; so the growth will have to come one business at a time. Back in the day when the Bridger family had a vision of the cottons mills and car dealerships; it did not just happen over night. I believe the same vision this family had is churning in the minds of many people today. It is coming, when who knows. Just maybe with the relocation of Butler Trucking from Charlotte to Bladenboro might be the beginning spark the Boro needs. One thing is for sure IT WILL NOT BE FREE when it comes.

If Pops is elected he plans on spending 5 Trillion dollars to restore the old buildings and make them Environmentallly efficient. Those old buildings once gone will be gone forever. The drainage problems will be taken care of and if we want, every town can bring their High Schools back to Towns all over Bladen County. Towns started dying when their heart (High Schools ) were removed. There is no reason why Bladen's Towns can't look like Vail, Co. Or Dodge City Kansas. Ya gotta have a draw to get Companies to come to Bladen. Elon Musk might even consider Mother Bladen if we had the best Education system in America. Bladen County is a beautiful place that will grow anything known to man. All these Towns can put back together with the Tidal wave of money that may come soon. Why not get our Town restored for free!🙂

William, Somebody has fed you a line of bull. I am not the leader of the Bladen County Republican Party. That high distinction belongs to Mr. Wayne Schaeffer, he is the Chairman of the local party. We have one chairman and many faithful workers. As far as what is going on with the town we grew up in, The Mayor, Mr. Rufus Duckworth, Mr White one of the leaders of the Boost the Boro, County Commissioner Charles Ray Peterson, Mr. Ray Britt Chairman of the County Commissioner Board. The motto of what is going with the town Might be "we intend to have 100% occupancy rate of all buildings in town". with all the tearing down of buildings going on. Seriously, one of the toughest jobs in Bladenboro, Dublin, White Oak, and Tar Heel has been and still is to get new businesses to locate in these communities. How would you like that job? Don't know much about Bladen Blooming other than its aim is its name; this organization has been and still is working to see business BLOOM in BLADEN County. They have been involved in getting some of the businesses out to the industrial park. I'm sure the COVID-19 situation has pulled back the attempt to bring new businesses into the communities mentioned above. People who grew up in the Bladenboro area loved and still do love the town in which they grew up. But on the bright side, at least the old buildings will not be falling down on top of people.

Hiram Hester moved back to his home town and began to work to help but, his life was cut short. In fact, if I make no mistake; he and his wife moved their business to the Bladenboro area. You might consider moving your trucking business back to your home town.

Not being involved in the business side of Bladenboro; I would say that #1 closing the High School and# 2 the floodings we have experienced have had the biggest effects on the towns decline. Their certainly are folks on the Boost the Boro committee that are doing all they can to help the town. People have to cherish the past and present and keeping looking and working toward a brighter future.

Personally, I'd like to see the town hold the Christmas Parade to help us get back to the normal we knew before last March. That call is in somebody's hands besides mine. When I think of Bladenboro, I'm reminded of some words "paraphrased" from our High School song, "Our dear old town "school" our hearts are turned to thee, true hearts felt love...." To be sure, our hearts are in for what is best for our town, may God help us all to continue to do all we can to rebuild it to its former days of glory.

There is county budget put out every year; think Mother Bladen is doing just fine. If you don't like the improvements to downtown Bladenboro, please retire and come back and tell others what needs to be done.

What the Sheriff refused to do was not his responsibility to do. If you don't believe that, ask the other several Sheriffs statewide that also refused to do things that were not theirs to do. Do your drivers stop for every disabled trucker they see along the roadways? THINK, William, THINK. Do all your drivers wear mask every waking moment?. They have things on the axles of the trucks to tell how man miles they drive. Have you put something inside the cabs to make sure they are masked up at all times; are you, in fact, masked up at all times? Common sense, William, common sense; is that something you have quit using since you left Bladenboro?

County Commissioners serve on various boards in the county. A man of your stature should know that. Just what are you trying to prove with all this drivel?
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 11/02/2020 at 5:29 am:

We now have people from ETown and Dublin pushing to demolish Main Street in Bladenboro. The County Commission Chairman is on their Board and has offered a blank check for the Demolition. The Taxpayers in Bladen seem to be in the dark about the monies being spent to keep a Good 'old boy in a position to get paid $60,000.00 a year for 20 hour working hours. Doesn't make sense.🧐

His judgement was not in the interest of the people of Bladen County. The figures that he paid for these 2 military vehicles do seem pretty high. Again we should be able to see what he bought and we paid for. What did he buy, a Tank? Plus he refused to enforce the NC Governor's mask mandate in a show of solidarity with Trump. Heck, he might be part of Trump's gunman volunteers, who show up when Trump calls. Also Americans can't trust the Tory party. The Tories have attacked America's Electoral system from every front.

You are looking for change(pennies, nickles, dimes, quaters) whereas Republicans, Unaffiliated, and many democrat voters have been looking for change; except we are receiving dollars(100's, 50's, 20's. 10, and 5's); BIG difference as you can very well see and the folks who have 401k's are really seeing the difference. Not to mention the businesses in Republican run cities and states; they are prospering. Bring on all the "change" that President Trump/VP Pence and his administration have been bringing to America. Least I forget William, IS YOUR TRUCKING BUSINESS BETTER OFF TODAY VERSES THE YEARS OF the last administration. If you are truthful, your answer is YES; SO, you see, William, Republicans believe in sharing the prosperity that comes during Republican leadership in our country. Of course, democrats have been known to share also; the only problem, what they like to share is HIGHER TAXES and shutting down our economy. How about the economic numbers for the third quarter, William.

In your post, you carry President Trump from bankrupt to making millions. Of course, he knows how to handle both circumstances. Unusual you bring up another mans business and you never speak of your own!!!!! It is none of your or my business where secret service agents live, whether protecting the current President for FOUR MORE YEARS. Noticed that you posted again shortly before I finished this post, again on a subject that is none of your business even if you are a tax payer currently absent from Mother Bladen. Rest assured that the County Commissioners and Sheriff know what they need to take care of the Sheriff's Department equipment. And how hypocritical William to ask BOL to do anything. Is the same BOL that back a year or so ago you and some of your friends called for it to be shut down by asking advertisers to cease to supporting BOL. If ypou want a bird's eye view William, why don't you come down to view your Bladen property on a weekday and go over and see Sheriff Mcvicker and ask for a tour of the the new jail and the equipment they use. And of course William you can go over to the county manager's office and request a tour of ALL property owned by Bladen County!!!! Does this by any chance have anything to do with the fact that the Sheriff is a REPUBLICAN and you are a democrat. Seems the last CC meeting I attended the democrat members brought up this same subject. And gave the impression they did not think too much about protecting equipment owned by the county; just let it set out in the weather and RUST and ROT. Certainlyyou don't want that to happen. Better to build that building and protect that equipment. Good practical use of your and my tax money. Would you agree William. Hope you and your family had a great Lord's day.

When the businesses asked for their pay Trump said sue me, I have many Lawyers. Several of the small businesses went Bankrupt because of not getting their payment.

Never did check exactly how Las Vegas thought about Hilary's chances. No doubt a lot of people lost a lot of money. We will see what happens.

I would certainly tell you to be very careful about addressing Unaffiliated voters as "ignorant"; put that tag on democrats all you want, but even at that remember most Unaffiliated voters use to be democrats. Believe those folks slogan when asked why they left the democrat party was, "I didn't leave the party, the democrat party left me".
William, are you as you post states "ignorant" enough to believe that any sane person would actually view something you recommend they view. And if you believe that You Tube can't be faked, then you are farther down the road to destruction than even I thought you could go. You Tube, indeed.

I'd rather concentrate on PROMISES MADE-PROMISES KEPT. Think he is going to be in North Carolina Monday. Maybe you and Herb Poe can get together between now and then and contact the President's campaign and go to the rally and when he calls you up on the stage, there and then you can announce you will be voting for President Trump the next day and then on November 4, 2020 both of you will be changing your party affiliation to REPUBLICAN. Why? Because the democrats have left both of you men in their dust with their green house gases, abortion of babies, and same sex marriages. The number one reason why the BIG RED WAVE is on its way is people of our nation want to see HOW DEEP the swamp is in this hunter/joe biden millions of dollars money scheme that is comes to find out that joe really did know about his son's business dealings and was neck deep in them himself. Have a good Lord's day tomorrow and be sure and attend church somewhere with your mask on. Doubt either one of you will do that because you don't like sitting SIX feet away from your female spouse.

Trump deserves no bail jail. He is the President of the United States and 545 immigrant, refugee children aren't able to hug their Momma and Daddy . They have been separated from them by Trump and they are living with strangers. Human trafficking of children is Illegal. Donald Trump is an Evil person. A President should have Empathy for every living person in Our Nation. I hope he's jailed ,then imprisoned for forcefully separating these families. Second the IRS can get him for Tax Fraud. Third the Insurance companies can get him for Insurance fraud
Fourth the Banks can get him for Bank fraud. Fifth the Citizens can have their way with him for Conspircy to commit Election Fraud , Election Fraud. Sixth committing Treason for engaging Foriegn Leaders in Election Fraud.

Empathy is Jesus's message to Humanity .

GC, I think you may be in for a real surprise when you get up on Wed. morning. The chances of a Trump landslide look very small. He probably will win Bladen County but even NC looks like a flip of the coin. If Trump loses, I suspect the time between Nov 4th and Jan 20th will be total chaos. Our Democracy will get a real test. Polls are not always right, nor are they always wrong. Biden’s lead looks far better than Hillary Clinton’s did at this same point in time. If Trump pulls this one of it will take a miracle.

GC...Trump believes a lie is as good as the truth as long as they believe it. Trump can't be trusted in an outhouse with a muzzle on. The Democrats and Independents aren't ignorant enough to believe him or Vladimir Putin. There is a YouTube that uses Trump's own words about "The Trump Putin love story", check it out. It'll open your eyes .

Herb Poe, the challenge to you and all democrats is to prove you know how much anyone lies. There is no way you or any leftist leaning person can prove how much anyone lie. You have swallowed the leftist fake news view of what is happening in our nation. Remember Herb Poe that beautiful shinning city on a hill called America; well I got news for you, Herb Poe, it is still shinning and will continue to shine. How about the last quarter economic figures; the greatest quarrter that has ever been recorded. The next time you meet a black, Mexican, or Asian American; be sure and ask them how they like the way they have been treated in the economy of the last almost 4 years. There is only one solution for it to continue; that is FOUR MORE YEARS of a Trump/Pence administration. Trump/ Pence in a landslide victory; it has started with early voting, it will continue tomorrow with the last day of early voting, and it will end with a ;landslide victory on Election Day, November 3, 2020. Wish everybody could have enjoyed being a poll worker or observer everyday since early voting began, will continue tomorrow, and will end Tuesday. See you at the East Bladen gym in Elizabethtown after the polls close Tuesday at 7:30 pm.

William, Go back and look at your last post. And I quote William , "and was transmitted by peoples breathe". No doubt you are a mask man, unfortunately you are not the Lone Ranger. Also, it is a known fact that many people are infected with Covid-19 and therefore are making themselves even sicker by breathing in their own Covid-19 germs. In fact, I did not know I had bad breathe until I started wearing a mask, and as I just explained what I was breathing out was coming right back at me the through(you guessed it) the mask. We have been told so many things about mask wearing that we do not know what to believe. For instance, Dr. Fauci originally said not to wear mask; then he said wear mask. then and I guess it is in effect now, wear the mask. Now this is supposedly the greatest virus doctor on the face of the earth. One day he is one thing; the next day he is another thing. His latest reason that mask are not working is because most people are messing around with them and that means "touching their eyes THAT"S A NO NO; touching their face THAT'S A NO NO; touching the mask after having coughed or sneezed into it THAT's DEFINITELY A NO NO. When I am in a mask wearing situation, the first thing I do when I get clear of that situation is, YOU GUESSED IT, take that mask off.

Last thing about lying, how dare you say anything about President Trump telling non truths with WHAT IS GOING ON WITH your candidate for President. He has been lying for the last 47 years as a politician. God only knows how much money has been paid into his coffers over those 47 years. And it appears his son has learn from his Dad very well. Not quiet what you learned from your Dad. He probably would drop out of the race if this situation had been uncovered several month ago.

God forbid he should ever be elected to the Presidency of OUR country.

GC...Trump is a habitual liar. He even convinced you and 7 County Sherriffs here in North Carolina that
wearing a mask to slow the Covid 19 Pandemic spread was not neccessary. 230,000 Americans died and Trump was actually recorded telling a Reporter how severe Covid 19 is, 5 times worse than the flu and was transmitted through people's breath. He knew and lied to us. How can anyone vote for Trump?
G C Bryan G C Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 10/29/2020 at 12:30 pm:
William, you are wasting your time if you are trying to convince people they can keep their health insurance if your presidential candidate wins. You have a very shot memory. It was his boss that said the famous words, "if you like your current plan you can keep it, AND "if ypu lie your doctor you can keep your doctor". BOTH turned out to be LIES_LIES. And now you are trying to convince Americans of the same old lie by the old people.

Second thing, if it is OUR White House then the man living in it is OUR PRESIDENT. And since he has done such a great job, he deserves FOUR MORE YEARS. Vote for him to take part in the landslide win for Trump/Pence.

Mr. Ray Britt, Thank you for your great letter about the Board of Elections and County Commissioners Board over the last few years. It might be said in as good a terms as you have expressed it; but not better. I commend you for your involvement in the political process in Bladen County. You have done an exceptional job and the thing that always has stood out to me about your public service, is the way you have edified others through the years. There is so much demeaning language and tearing down of other people; it is truly refreshing to know that you and many others on the boards on which you have served are cut out of the same mold as you. The list of names you mentioned in your letter contain some great people along with yourself. May God bless you, the Board of County Commissioners, the Board of Education, the Board of Elections and all the folks who work for the betterment of Mother Bladen. Things do have a way of working out as long as good people stay involved.

Next Tuesday the election results will be known(hopefully for all races); may God bless the new names that will appear on Elected boards of our county; may they be cut out of the same mold as you and others who have served Mother Bladen so well over the years. May the hand of God lead all elected and appointed officials of our nation. My prayer is very simple for elected and appointed leader. Heavenly Father, encourage the ones that are saved; saved the ones that are yet lost; then may they all work together for the betterment of all Bladen Countians, North Carolinians, and Americans, Amen.

The Republicans are crying Socialism today just as they did when the Democrats were establishing safety nets to keep people in their homes and have income to feed their families. Things like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, food stamps. Now the Democrats are offering an alternative to not for profit Healthcare, and you can keep your for profit Insurance is you Love your Insurance company. Back in the 30s after the Great Depression the Democrats were called Socialists because they wanted safety nets to help those in dire need. Now in 2020 the Republicans are in love with a Fascist in Trump who is against Safety nets and if elected will tear down what we have and need he's already shredded Environmental safety nets.

If Trump wins, Americans lose ! He should be in jail, not Our Whitehouse. He and his Tories have attacked our Electoral system from EVERY direction I think he should be charged for using Our US Postal Service to hinder our voting process when we need help from them to keep us safe

William, you are so deep in democrat party trash that you would dare say what you did in your second last post. What a lot of folks may not know about you and I is that we share the same great grand father. You and I grew up basically in the same area; everybody has heard talk give us some names. Talk is cheap William, be careful William talking about your kin people; in reality, when you do you are talking about yourself. The Bible has several incidences of what you refer to and it was dealt with by the family and by God. You'll have to read for yourself as to what happened to get some righteous and spiritual training in such matters.

You must have been posting on some other medium because what came through on BOL has nothing whatsoever to do with anything you, Herb Poe, and myself have been posting.

Herb Poe, as Ronald Reagan would say, "there you go again". You DO NOT know if i am on any medications or else you are God, or else you just figure everybody is taking medication.
NEWS FLASH Herb Poe, everybody is not doing it. What you have been saying certainly does refer to child prostitution. If the gay life style is not born into into a baby then it must be an acquired life style. Just what do you think those abominable people were doing to those 45 children they just rescued up in one of our Northern states. Several adults have been arrested. Of course, according to the DEMOCRAT Gov. of Virginia it would have been better to have performed a botched abortion on those 45 children and then have killed them after the abortion was bitched.

Life is in the hands of Almighty God and it is his right to take it or to spare it. If after reading the Bible from beginning to end, you come up with the idea life is not God's property; then you need to do as the gospel song said recently by the Gold City Quartet, "think I'll read it again and let it bless my soul". Whether it is the homosexual life style or the taking of the life of little babies; find out what. the Bible says about it and line yourself up with the Word of
God. May God bless you as you do so .

You guys are on the losing side on the sodomy issue or any other sin issue. You, nor I, nor anyone will ever change God's mind about sodomy and killing of babies. Read your Bibles from cover to cover and you'll find the answers to your questions on these issues. You can choose which side you want to come down on, as for me I'll always come down on God's side regardless of the issue. So both of you believe these young girls being forced into prostitution have chosen that lifestyle? Ask yourself, if you have daughters; would you fight to keep your daughter out of prostitution? You don't have to answer that question. However, the democrat candidate was caught saying he would prostitute himself to get something done. What you are both advocating is what democrats advocate but DO NOT BELIEVE OR PRACTICE. If you are going to talk the talk be ready to walk the walk. Evidently, you two men believe in a man prostituting himself; but look back on your life, have you done.

Other than that, if you are dancers, have you tried the TRUMP? He is on TV as I type this in Bullhead, Arizona doing it. And as Rev. Billy Graham would day, be sure and go to prayer meeting somewhere tonight. May no do you any good but it will not hurt you.

GC, do you abide by all of the abominations of the Pentateuch? Does your church advocate for execution of gay people? My Church constantly argues about whether or not to ordain them.

Some of those abominations get to be almost humorous. Things like “A woman shall not wear a man's garment, nor shall a man put on a woman's cloak, for whoever does these things is an abomination to the Lord your God.”. I mean, my wife left the house this morning in a pair of blue jeans, is it time to stone her?

As you said God knows you before you were in the womb. You haven't shown me where Jesus mentioned abortion or homosexuality. Moses is thought to have authored Leviticus. I don't see either of these in the in the 10 Commandments. I think if you would read the New Testament you'll be a better person. Judging people is way above your pay grade.🤔
