Billy, what you are espousing regarding the virus is a literal impossibility for our sheriff and any sheriff in North Carolina. Of course, you may be able to have the sheriff of Mecklenburg County to put a deputy on every tax paying citizen there and force the mask down their throats "so to speak" but it is foolishness; and for sure if he tries that he will not be reelected in the next election. Roy Cooper knew it was a stupid thing to even think the sheriffs of NC could enforce such a mandate. AND, remember Billy, you are putting down the very man whose responsibility it is to make sure your Mother and your family that still reside are taken care of in as far as the law is concerned. Besides, it is not Sheriff McVicker's job to take care of health related concerns in Mother Bladen that responsibility belongs to the health department, and I must say they have done as good a job as could be expected under the circumstances. How many guns do you have in your home Billy? Sure hope you are smarter than to admit to all the criminal element in Charlotte that you don't have any?

It is amazing how you keep up with what goes on concerning people of the Republican Party. The democrats may excommunicate you from the party, because you obviously spend so much time "hating" Republicans that you can't possibly spend any time supporting the democrats. You have committed pretty close to the impardonable sin; you have started relying on tea leaves for the truth. We Republicans had much rather rely on the instructions from the "leaves" of the Bible. Try it and get back in contact with the way you were raises. Here in Mother Bladen, we respect all Americans including the Asian Americans; sounds like you might be like the politician on the movie, "Oh Brother Where Art Thou", holding a grudge. You know you do not believe in reading tea leaves; drinking the tea, maybe but not reading the tea leaves. By the way, is what is written on them, written in Japnanese or English? It is certainly, evident that you are not keeping up with current news; if you think the Trump ship is sinking. You need to keep up with what is going on in "pops" administration if you want to see a sinking ship, the whole ship of state. Finally, Billy, there are no Whigs and Tories anymore; you are caught in a "time warp". Give yourself a quick clean jerk and snap out of it. Nice try Billy.

Bladen Countians have an opportune chance to elect a Sherriff who will enforce Statewide measures to keep his constituents safe from harm of the Corona Virus and the proliferation of guns. His Party is known for raffeling off an AR-15 semi automatic weapon. Will he endorse his Political Party's continued effort to put a gun in every hand? He has publicly refused to enforce even a mask mandate.

Now is the time to find someone who is in tune with reality and the majority of Americans. The Good Ole Boy esc. past doesn't cut it anymore.

Another of Trump's henchmen has been indicated for illegally lobbying for Foreign Countries. This one bonded out of Jail for $250,000,000.00 (million). The highest Bond ever in American history. Anyone still allegiant to Trump should really think about how hugely they have been duped. When Trump is indicted I predict that he will be denied Bond and imprisoned until he gets his speedy trial.
The Republican Party should read the tea leaves. Will they continue to hold onto the sinking ship. The Tories have no place at the American Table. Kinda reminds me of Jesus' actions on the Temple steps.

Billy, since 7-20-2021; 17769 Americans have died from Covid 19. And that is with "pops" as you call him, heading up the world's greatest free nation in history. The latest count is 626769 or since January 20, 2021; that amounts to 226769 have died under the "pops" administration having full access to the vaccine. Billy, it is time to call Washington and Raleigh again; in fact you might need to start calling "pops" every day. At the rate we are currently going, in about 2 months; we will exceed the death count under President Trump in just the first 8 months of "pops" administration. How about those democrats Billy?
G.C. Bryan G.C. Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 07/26/2021 at 9:57 am
Thank you Billy for your summation of the democrat party. The vaccine was a gift from the Republican Party administration of President Donald J Trump. You are right, it is shame what "pops" and the democrats have done with it. You are correct about the base of the democrat party being destroyed by the likes of "pops", Pelosi, Schummer, Nadler, Waters, Roy Cooper. How sad, but it could not happen to a better party for the way it has treated its voter base.

Good to see you do believe God is the only one who can straighten out this mess that "pops" has gotten us into in just six months of the current Presidency.
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 07/24/2021 at 11:32 pm
It is so sad that millions of Americans view not accepting a free vaccine during a severe Pandemic as a show of their allegiance to a political party. Sadder than that is that the party are literally killing their own base and their families .

Please Pray for God's intervention.

Billy, careful there; I can't imagine an ole farm boy from Bladen County "guaranteeing" anything about President Donald Trump. Remember, he was the one who made promises to the American people and KEPT his promises. Now, you have :pops" and he is doing such a fine job considering he did not make any promises to the American people. Excuse me Billy, I forgot, he is a"politician; for what now, over 50 years, therefore he would not know how to keep a promise which is apt for most democrat politicians. Nice try.

Billy, you are an amazing man. Out of 1,000,000 men surveyed; not one of them had ever given any thought to shoes in prison except Billy Butler of Charlotte.
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 07/21/2021 at 7:08 am

G.C. Bryan G.C. Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 07/20/2021 at 11:16 am
Hey Billy, how about contacting your democrat administrations in Washington and Raleigh and let them know that in less than 6 months 209,000 Americans have lost their lives to covid 19. And that is with the vaccine being available. At this rate, "pops" will easily surpass President Trumps numbers in less than a year in office. Their response maybe, shut downs, mask, and 6 feet apart again. With the vaccine available, this is not acceptable. It is all about leadership. Are we missing him yet; I think most Americans would say a resounding YES. Way to go "pops".
G.C. Bryan G.C. Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 07/19/2021 at 12:48 pm
Should not be in office Billy? Let's start with "pops". Your supposition about elections 2012, 2014, 2016 would be a difficult task since some of those people are dead and others are no longer in office. It would be a very interesting thing to pursue democrats now in office that should not be. Still wondering exactly how they would handle it, if indeed, "pops' stole a fraudulent election; was impeached for it and had to resign. All kind of suppositions that could be thought of including yours. By the way Billy, what is your supposition about the cost of a President or preachers shoes?
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 07/18/2021 at 7:04 am
GC, your reference to Donald Trump and Mark Harris's shoes being beyond my capacity to purchase paints the perfect picture of current Republican ideology. I see that the Tories under our roof in Raleigh want to question our voting machines. Shouldn't they be spending our money to get to the bottom of the District 9 Embarrassment in 2012, 14 and 2016 elections. Who knows who is now in office that should not be?
G.C. Bryan G.C. Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 07/15/2021 at 9:16 pm
Billy, you seem to know all the democrats in Washington and Raleigh by their "last" names! Too bad they don't know you by first or last name. Must say, you certainly seem to know every move they make. Don't worry about President Trumps or Rev, Harris shoes. They are probably so expensive that you and I would never be able to own a pair. Speaking of shoes, there is a song by the Inspirations Gospel Quartet called "Two Shoes". Get you a copy of it and listen to it real close. It tells a wonderful story.

Where have you been for the last umpteen years, the federal government has been toyed with by the democrats for the last several democrat administration. Most recently by the rookie impeachers like Gerald Nadler, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Charles Schumer, and that all time great democrat Maxine Waters. With all the damage President Biden is doing to the nation, he may turn out to be the biggest toyer since President Bill Clinton.
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 07/15/2021 at 6:00 pm
GC, Attorney General Garland has greatly increased his employees dedicated to mopping up Election Fraud. I am very empathetic but I do not want to be in Trump, Mark Harris and their accomplice's shoes. Uncle Sam will not be toyed with...

My day is not complete unless I stop be this forum. I enjoy reading the Bryan and Butler political columns. Both of these gentleman are great guys. Both friends of mine. However, they will never convince the other to their way of thinking. Thank God that I am an Independent.

The first column that I look for is Robert's Thoughts while Shaving. Then I flip over to the forum that I have named the "B & B Site" since Billy Butler and Grover Bryan are the dominant users. They have a futile battle trying to convince the other that their politics are wrong.

This column would be obsolete with out their political arguments. I will not say anything derogative about these gentlemen as I know them both to be good, salt of the Earth men. They are really dedicated to their political party, as their posts show.

Keep the faith B&B. I am a dedicated follower of your posts. My day would not be complete without checking here for some good reading. I really believe that these gents have Godly love for each other but just can't get their politics aligned.

Doubting Billy, If hatred by democrats would put a person in prison he would already be there. Fortunately for our country, hatred by democrats of anyone does not translate out to a prison sentence. Be very careful Billy, what one wishes for another; often turns back on the person who wished it. Check your history Billy, do you know of another former President of the United States who went to prison. Our nation is in a mess because of "pops" but it isn't in that big of a mess. Now, is you want to look at Hunter or "pops" in that situation you could be "right on" especially when the Congress gets flipped over to the REPUBLICANS. Nice try Billy.
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 07/14/2021 at 2:47 pm
GC, I doubt Trump will ever run for office again. He'll be in Prison well before 2024.
G.C. Bryan G.C. Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 07/13/2021 at 9:46 pm
Billy, see you are still relying on Dick Butkus style tactics and trying to relate it to political leadership; won't work Billy, he never led his team "tha bears" to even one playoff win his career. Whereas President Trump led his team, the REPUBLICANS to victory in his first season of politics and in fact won the super bowl of politics, THE PRESIDENCY of the UNITED STATES. Had a bad referring crew in his second super bowl of politics, but will come back strong in his third super bowl of politics in 2024 and win the Presidency again.

"pops' has given REPUBLICANS so much help in just six months that it may be a landslide. How are you liking the price of fuel oil, inflation, and border security in just the last six months or the first six months of "pops" presidency? Not good; at the current rate he may have to send out another check just to help people keep up with inflation. In his current condition, I doubt he could even lift a Dick Butkus helmet to put it on is head. So, he is the one responsible for causing the NC STATE Wolfpack to be taken out of the NCAA baseball World Series? Not good either. You know they wear "red hats" don't you? Not too many people in North Carolina would say the Wolfpack are attacking American Democracy and certainly would not say Wolfpackers are not "Real Americans" and would not ever run with "pops" onto any field. Nice try Billy.

Today The President of the United States donned his Dick Butkus #51 jersey, pulled on his helmet and buckled his chin strap for meeting the Tories who wear red hats and are attacking American Democracy . We as REAL Americans will run on the field with him ! 😎

Billy, the problem with your analysis of the Merle Haggard song is that one never heard Harris nor Prisent Trump talking "down" on our country. They both were always encouraging our country to be its best. Merle Haggard would have loved Trump and Harris. If he can get the rights to use, "The Fighting Side of me, President Trump might just use it as his them song during his rallies. By the way Billy, he suppose to be speaking this weekend; I'm sure you will be tuned in. Do ever have time to share a little love with folks, you are always "hating" President Trump and he has been out of office for six months now. By the way, google what the current death count is from covid 19, subtract 400,000 and you'll see how many people have died from it since January 2021. Not a pretty sight especially considering "pops" has had the vaccine, that President Trump gave him and he still can't seem to get the people to get vaccinated.
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 07/09/2021 at 4:33 pm

Billy, Billy, Billy,

Same ole, same ole from you and most democrats. Let's pick someone today to HATE and as per usual it is Donald J Trump. Looks like you'll would get tired of it after a while, but it will continue to be the norm as long as Pelosi and Shumer lead the democrat party in Washington with Waters and Nadler by their side. The United States needed a Knight in shinning armor to ride into Washington and rescue our nation from the jaws of the dreaded democrats. That knight was President Trump and he did just that in chivalrous manner. Unless that Knight reappears in 2024, our Republic may be in jeopardy of being destroyed from within as one famous Russian stated years ago. "pops" and his henchmen in just six months have done more to destroy the USA from within than all the poor leaders and enemies we have had in all of our history.

As usual, you are not keeping up; check the last election results and you will find that Donald J Trump and the Republican Party had one of the most impressive victories statewide in its history. The current administration is a debacle worldwide, but not to fear that chivalrous knight shall ride back on the stage of American politics in 2024; in fact he is already coming back. Four more years, USA, finish building that wall, and as a nation quit killing those babies. Can you hear them crying Billy? Save me, save me, save me, I want to live, I want to live, I want to live. In reality, these are things Americans of all political persausions WANT; Unaffiliated, Republicans, democrarts. Even Billy Butler if he was honest with himself. Have a great day Billy and hope you enjoyed the birthday of our nation.

By the way Billy, I noticed the "Roy Boy Cooper" has signed an order that allows college ball players to get compensated. Please tell him that all future scholarships for sports will be cancelled. after all, they will be paid more than enough to pay for their education.
G.C. Bryan G.C. Bryan from Bladenboro wrote on 07/07/2021 at 11:17 am
Billy, thank you for bring up the situation that currently saturates Mother Bladen; HOWEVER, remember there are more democrats in Mother Bladen than than Republicans or Unaffiliated voters. It would be very interesting to see what percentage of each class that have had their Covid 19 shots that President Trump got the ball rolling on very quickly. If we had to wait on "pops" the vaccine would probably still not be available. Reminds me of an old commercial, "have you, have you had your shot today, covid of course, covid off course.

Are you referring to the governor who shut down the state ROY COOPER? Thank God he can't run again. One has to wonder if the state will survive the next three and one half years.

Our current elected Republicans are doing a great job here in the Mother County. You got it wrong Billy, what we need is for 5 more great Republicans to throw their hat in the ring to serve beside those that are already doing a fantastic job.

GC, the very last thing the lowest vaccinated rated County in America needs is another Republican in ANY elected position. I recall clearly that the Sheriff from Bladen County boldly refused to enforce the simple mask requirement set by the North Carolina Governor to protect his Citizens. What Bladen County needs greatly are 5 new clear headed people to run for office .

Billy, Billy, Billy,
How soon some folks seem to forget; seems the democrats don't ever learn the facts to forget them. Just accuse, hate, hate and accuse. What you forget Billy, is #1. We still would not have a Covid 19 vaccine had it not been for President Donald John Trump. # 2. Anything President Trump did not get done would fall squarely in the laps of democrats in Congress. 1-6-21 to 1-20-21 is a span of 14 days. All "pops' was able to do his first 14 days in office was to create approximately 100,000 jobs loses with the closing down of the pipeline and begin to get a few Americans vaccinated with Covid 19 vaccine AND he still hasn't figured out how to get the people of America to take the vaccine. Next thing you know he may try to make it manditory to get vaccinated.

In case you missed it Billy, another very well known county commissioner has switched party affiliation from democrat to REPUBLICAN. Over in Robeson County, Mr. Tom Taylor has done so; his Dad, Tom Sr. also served the county as a democrat. Sound familiar Billy? Tom Jr., Republican, Tom Sr., democrat----William Sr., democrat; William Jr., if smart, a Republican. Why? His reply was the democrat party has left him. Being a conservative, he could take no more of the democrat party.

Keep up Billy, President Trump DIS NOT attack the Capitol. Ask yourself this question Billy. When a man owns a trucking company and a driver wants to pay the owner back on a particular cause; so the driver goes out and deliberately drives one of the owners rigs into a defenseless family and kills them. By what you are saying, it would be just like the owner drove that rig into the family. NOT SO, Billy; and you know it. The BLM instigators who infiltrated the peaceful marchers and caused the attack on the Capitol, werer the ones at fault and should be prosceuted to the fullest extent of the law. Just remember. the Capitol police officer died of natural causes and you democrats wanted to and still want to destroy innocent people before you find out the TRUE facts on anything that is going on in today's political client. All the while "pops" doesn't even know the the difference in Iran and Israel when he is speaking to the world as the leader of the Free World. Wake up Billy and get out of the mess you are in politically.

Other that hope you and your family have had a wonderful Fourth of July. You better enjoy it, "pops" may decide to do away with it. And how about your Governor vetoing the bill to put North Carolinians back to work?

I am not the smartest person in the world, NC, or Baden County; however I am smart enough to know that 52% does not equal 1/3 or 33%. If it does, the teachers in the Bladenboro Schools in the 1950's and 1960's made a terrible mistake in teaching the basic tenets of mathematics. Don't have any idea where Dr. Cohen who heads up the Governor's medical team on things Covid 19 related. She did in the current article about the status of covid 19 on June 25th, state that 52% of the states population has been fully vaccinated and then she turns around in the same article and states that one third of the states population has been fully vaccinated. This is exactly what has been wrong from the get go about covid `19; medical people talking out of both sides of their mouths. If the Governor wants more of the NC population to be fully vaccinated; he needs to fire Dr. Cohen and get someone in that position that the other 48% who are not fully vaccinated will believe. It is getting to the point of being ridiculous. God help the powers that be to get knowledgeable people in positions of leadership on the Covid 19 situation. HELP! Or have I misread this article?

Billy, Americans are Americans. You democrats are the ones who have tried and in some cases succeeded in dividing Americans into different classes. There are certainly inalienable rights bestowed upon all Americans; some Americans forfeit those those rights by actions they take. Don't tell me Billy, you actually believe the rule of law and jails are all wrong. And of course, we are all guilty before God with our Adamic nature. When one gets to the point they argue with God and His word, that person has reached a dangerous point in their life. Since the episode Eve had with Satan, mankind has been trying to make God out to be a liar. It will never happen. God is the truth; Satan is a liar and the father of lies. We as Americans have been given a great deal of latitude in our freedoms and dealings with people; but that hasn't changed God, is still the truth and expects His people to be people of truth. It is true that we have the right to chose, but the wrong choices carry tremendous consequences. The question we have to continuosly ask ourselves is are we ready to face the consequences and the answer is always NO.

And now, "pops" cabinet member doesn't have to "come out", he is already a queer. That all too famous saying when he was being questioned about becoming a cabinet member, "I'm sure you will be happy at the end of the day to go home to your "husband". It has always been an abomination in the sight of God and since He never changes, it will always be an abomination. But in the sight of "pops" and the democrat party, it is just fine. Read the platform of the party and find out. They even think that the rainbow is something besides a promise from God.

They have and will continue to fail because it is more than a document, it is the very air we as patriotic Americans breathe, it is the red, white and blue of our flag. I think Merle Haggard said it best back in the 1960's or so in the song "Fighting Side Of Me"; "When you're running down our country man, you're walking on the fighting side of me". No one has ever experienced a "real" until they get Americans riled up and we have to go to fighting for the liberties we hold near and dear to our hearts, and we are will not only to fight but to die if necessary to keep.

You talk about repeating history, the current democrat administration with your "pops" at the head of it is doing its dead level best to destroy everything our country was founded on. When President Trump goes back into the White House on Jan. 20, 2024; he will have to spend quite awhile doing away with the mess "pops" has already done in just six months. Just one thing is enough to make American's "puke". How dare "pops" to allow a table full of gay pride materials to be placed in a VA Medical Center.

Billy, still living in the past are you? There is no such thing as a Whig or Tory anymore. Are you a member of the Tory party? The local democrat party chairman where you live might want to speak to you about that.

As far as election day. The only thing that ever made any since about it was that the ABC stores were closed on that day. You must have slept right past the time that early voting came about. There is too much "PAYING" people to vote going on already. You might contact "pops" about having Juneteenth moved to election day; I'm sure it will be tweeked quiet a bit to at least get it on a Friday or Monday so it will be a three day weekend holiday. Suggest to "pops" it be celebrated on Monday before election day and carry on over into Tuesday "election" day; THEN, it will become the first FOUR day Federal Holiday. After all, a Federal Holiday only cost the American tax payer $600,000,000.

See you have flip-flopped on our democracy lasting again. I thought sure you had erroneously stated in the past that certain people who love our Democracy would see its demise. We are living in a time of weird things happening, but the end of our democracy is not and will not ever happen until the Lord calls time on time as we know it.

Let's see, you democrats already have dead people voting, under aged people voting, illegal aliens voting, people with no ID voting, people that are not Americans voting, etc. You complicate it so much. Republicans just sum it up and say, WE WANT ALL AMERICANS WHO ARE LEGALLY REGISTERED TO VOTE TO SHOW THEIR ID AND VOTE ONCE. As far as who is the legal spokesperson for any political party; you seem to have taken it upon yourself to take that position upon yourself for the democrats. As far as I know, there is no such position with the Republican Party; for sure, I know that I am not the spokesperson for the Republicans locally or any other place. Keep speaking for the Tories Billy, but be informed that dead people need no one to speak for them. Will give you kudos for trying.

To Billy from Charlotte,
I don't get on here much but I came across your post talking about Bladenboro. You called the upgrades that several groups are working together on to improve our little town as "bull crap". Our town has gone through 2 - 500 years storms in the last few years and as always, we are Bladenboro Strong, and keep on working to keep our town alive. Over the past eight years, we have gotten a new community building, a new fire department, had several new businesses open, we are finishing up on a new 2 field ball park and play ground to make Bladenboro even a better place to live. I can't wrap my head around why you would say that it is bull crap to try to improve our town or why you say it is in ruins, especially seeing that you are from Charlotte. Talk about a town being in ruins, Charlotte is the 59th worse city in the US to live in as far as crime. 91% of the communities in NC are safer than your town. In just the first quarter of this year, your town has had 22 homicides and almost 6000 violent crimes or 6.76 per thousand citizens.
Yes, Bladenboro is a small town but size to size, it is a lot better place to live and raise a family than Charlotte ever will be. Here, we can go out and walk around the block without worrying about getting shot or robbed.
I am proud of my town and the people in it. Proud of the way that we have recovered from the storms over the past few years and the improvements that we have done and are doing to make this a great place to live.
We are not perfect and never will be, but we are one of the best places to raise a family, wasn't you in fact raised here, and in closing, I can't understand how you have hate for the place that you came from, but then again, I can't understand your love for where you are now.

GC, I asked the previous question incorrectly. My proper question is to you, the Tory's (conservative Republican ) spokesman . Why are the Tories not in favor of election day being a Federal Holiday so more people can vote. Are you guys so desperate to survive that you are above nothing?

You people should be well warned: Democracy will win in the end. The last Tories who challenged American Democracy ended up in a gully beside the Cape Fear in Elizabethtown, North Carolina.

How about it Billy, the leader of the free world the President of the United States can not even make a speech without getting Iran mixed up with Israel. Of course, Mr. Arnold is from the past which you seem to live in. Tell us once again how proud you are of Gerald Nadler, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, Charles Schumer. I think "pops" should name another holiday after you and name it Billyteeneth. If this keeps up, Americans will not have to wrok anymore because every day of the year will be a federal holiday. Who is going to keep those trucks on the roads Billy if all the CDL drivers are off on a holiday every day of the year? But, that is just where the democrats want this nation, groveling at the feet of the Federal Government.

Billy, What you are really saying is that you are a judgmental dye in the wool democrat. One has to wonder when was the last time you read through the word of God, the Holy Bible, and saw what the total word of God has to say on a particular subject. First of all, God created everything (including maggots) but human beings ARE NOT maggots. Evidently you ran into some real maggots recently around you house; but you are so off base by calling a human being a maggot that it does not even warrant a reply. The same Bible you so flippantly refer to also says, "judge not, that ye be not judged . For with what judgement ye judge, ye shall be judged; and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. And why beholdest thou the mote that is in you brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in your own eye. Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine own eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye. Thou hypocrit, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; AND THEN shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye." Matthew 7:1-5.

You are so off base in your judgement of anyone else and it is apparent it is based on socialist communists" doctrine as you have stated in previous post. Just your comment about the "church house" shows you do not understand what or who Christ died for; it certainly was not for any temple or church, it was and still for those who will repent of their sins and accept Him as their personal Saviour.

Mark Harris has nothing to do with the decline of church attendance. Search a little deeper and you will find that it is more of a case of people sitting out at these stores and other places that have no connection with the Church, "God's Saved People" spouting off about what is wrong with the Church when they do not know what they are talking about. They are part of the crowd that thinks when the Bible speaks of "if my people" it means everybody even the sinners. NOT SO, it means exactly what it says "If my people".

I have heard Franklin Graham speak many times and his Dad also; never, have I heard either one of them make himself an appointer of Godly men. There is NO power in the House of God, the power is in the God of the House and the blood of His Precious Son, Jesus Christ. You owned the expression "maggot" in referring to a man of God; wonder if you would appreciate someone referring to the elder William Butler as a "maggot"? Judge not.

Not so ironic Billy, when one considers the fact that Billy Butler, Bill Clinton, Hussein Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Charles Shumer, Maxine Waters, and Roy Cooper are DEMOCRATS. JUDGE NOT.
William Butler William Butler from Charlotte wrote on 06/17/2021 at 7:18 am
GC, what man of God are you speaking of ? One of Franklin Graham's GODLY men ? The one who preaches the words off Jesus of Nazareth or someone who knew the words in red and tossed them aside so he could be elected and gain POWER, even more than the power that the House of God held for him. I'm no Biblical Scholar but I'm thinking that the only recorded incidence of Christ's total rebuke on the Temple steps pretty much included false profets and their greed.

I can't believe that this sorry excuse of humankind has a job of standing in a pulpit. Hope they have strong lightning rods. People like this Maggot sold their Souls and need to spend much time to think about their reality.

People like Mark Harris are responsible for the downward spiral of Church attendance. If you think I'm being too critical of a liar just wait 'till his his heart stops beating and he pays for his Sins.

Ironic that He and Trump are Republicans...

And that you want a man of God to be shamed and maybe sent to prison. Come out of the past Billy and start living in the present and hoping to start living in a better future. You probably think "pops' should be
impeached for his sons deeds. The House and Senate elections of this coming fall one year will determine all these situation. Wonder how the democrats will handle being impeached from all sides?

until the general election in 2024. If Joe Biden and Kamala Harris were asked what bird is the national bird of our country they would probably reply the TURKEY BUZZARD. You would probably do a better job of negotiating with a foreign power than "pops"; at least you do realize there is a difference between a fly speck and black pepper.

There are some maggots in NC and they just happen to be up in your city. Your police department has "expressed concern over what it said is a 210% increase in sexual assault cases involving children this year". That is a statement attributed to The Associated Press from Charlotte NC in today's The Fayetteville Observer. Congratulations Billy. See if you can throw your political persausion from the democrat party to clear this mess up. For God's sake, don't call "pops" to help you because he has been known to do some weird stuff around children.

Billy, you need to go see a sleep therapist. Still up at 12:03 am watching flicks of Hitler and Mousolini is definitely not good for anyone who is patriotic to American ideals. Strange you should mention racism and Mousolini and Hitler in consecutive post. Just can stand it that President Trump did more for America in four years than "pops" has done in over forty years. He still has about three and one half years to do something. He has come up with a unique idea; DEBTS DO NOT HAVE TO BE REPAID. That plus the southern border fiasco should place him pretty close to the bottom in rankings of Presidents. His excuse will probably be that HE DID NOT KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING. At last he will have hit the nail on the head. Believe it was one of the Roosevelts who is created with "all we have to fear is fear itself"; will left you take care of the ignorance part. Probably will be something relating to Mousilini and Hitler. Have you figured out yet why the illustrious VP we currently have wiped her hands on her pantsuit after she shook the hand of the President of South Korea? Isn't that GREAT DIPLOMACY? BTW, If President Trump were speaking to Tories as you say, there would be no sound to turn down. Don't think they had volume knobs back in the days of the Tories.

They will be the ones worshiping with their families on this coming Lord's Day and thanking Him that we still have the right to worship God. They will be the ones that will be doing some of the things that are mentioned in this forum about Memorial Day remembering those who gave their all that we could celebrate this day, Memorial Day, and Veterans Day later on in the year. Thank God we still live in a country that remembers armed force members of our great nation and the sacrifice they made. They will be remembering our friend Israel that is still reeling from the bombs from Hamas. May we never forget our friend. They will be the families that will be enjoying picnics and family get togethers while celebrating the lives of those family members that served and are serving in branches of the United States of America's Armed forces.

Oh yeah, Billy, even some democrats will be doing some of the same things because when a comrade is in a rice patty field in Vietnam, the freezing mountains of Korea, the towns of Europe fighting the Nazi's, or the other battle fields that our Armed Forces personnel have served on to keep our nation free. One does have to wonder why there seems to be more patriotism during years when a Republican is serving in the White House versus this year. May we as American's continue to sing "America, America, God shed His grace on thee, and crown thy good with brotherhood from sea to shining sea". God bless America this Memorial Day weekend as we remember those who gave their all to keep us free; and also every day of the year from "sea to shining sea".
God bless every family that has lost a loved one in any war and every family that has a living veteran or current member of our Armed Forces. God bless those veterans who have seen the passing of a spouse since the last Memorial Day.

Signed one of the largest tax cuts in American history. #3. No new wars started during his administration. #4. Recognized Jerusalem as the capital of Israel #5.

To be sure, Dick Butkus was a good player; BUT he never even led the Chicago Bears to a playoff game in his career. For that matter, neither did Gayle Sayers. Not a good choice to put forth as some who is going to get things done. And of course he has absolutely to do with the security of our capital grounds

Billy, have you forgotten son, Hunters, little escapades overseas; so much for "pops" declaration that he knew nothing about it.

To top it all off, today a wall of remembrance for the Korean War killed; "pops"'nowhere to be found but there was the President of Korea there. What a slap in the face for all American's who fought in that war and died. Seriously doubt those who are still alive will ever forget "pops" absence from those festivities. "Where oh where was "pops" at, why did leave the Korean Vets all alone; we search the dedication ceremony all around, but "pops" Biden could not be found. Would make a nice song if "HEE HAW" ever made a comeback.

As for "pops" and his letters, I doubt he knows the last time he wrote a letter so he would not know who he wrote it to. He is failing a the leader of our country and still denies that we have a catastrophic problem on the southern border. He denies it to the point that he will not even allow his "imigration Czar" even go down there to observe the mess.

So you are saying the leader of the free world should not deal with the Russians? What a short memory you have Billy. Surely you have forgotten those famous words by a great Republican President, "Mr. Gorbeshav, tear that wall down; it would still be there if the leader of the free world had not dealt with the leader of Russia. Come to your senses Billy. Wish "pops" would, but unforunately I think he is beyond medical help. God have mercy on our beloved country. Trump loved it and still loves it.

going on with our President; maybe someone with a little common sense will finally figure it out. It certainly will not be anyone from the President's party.

Billy, "pops" as you like to call our President; doesn't even know we have had a Constitution and Bill of Rights since the inception of this Republic that guarantees what you say "pops" has signed an Executive Order to guarantee what is already guaranteed. Seems he would be better serving this Republic by going down to the southern border to see what his VP cannot or will not see.

No one that I saw was trying to deny Mr. Proctor his Constitutional Rights. It was more of a Journalistic criticism…. Ie… mixing straight news with his own political opinions.

Freedom of Speech is in Jeopardy

BladenOnline has received some complaints about one of our writers referring to the Covid 19 Pandemic as the "Xi Jinpingfluenza". One reader emailed in about the writer and stated, "The author of the article refers to the COVID-19 pandemic multiple times as the 'xi jinping fluenza.' I find that reference very offensive, racist, inappropriate, and completely irresponsible. Especially given the rise in anti-Asian hate crimes in this country over the past year."

I understand our reader's concerns. However, BladenOnline believes firmly in upholding our North Carolina and the United States Constitutional rights. At the same time, our team does not agree with everything published on BladenOnline; we reserve the rights of our citizens by publishing information.

According to USCourt.gov, American citizens have the right to use certain offensive words and phrases to convey political messages, such as shown in the court case Cohen v. California, 403 U.S. 15 (1971).

Also, citizens have the right to engage in symbolic speech, (e.g., burning the flag in protest). This type of issue was ruled on in the case Texas v. Johnson, 491 U.S. 397 (1989); United States v. Eichman, 496 U.S. 310 (1990).

Our writer, H. Blake Proctor is a decorated United States War Veteran and a Doctor of Philosophy in Public Policy. His dissertation was "Identifying and Overcoming Barriers to the Implementation of Total Quality Management in Local Governments."

At times, Proctor uses words in his writings to have his readers think about things differently. He does not tell anyone how to think.

This week Proctor sent me an email explaining why he refers to the Covid-19 Pandemic as the Xi Jinpingfluenza. He said, "Xi Jinping is the Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party - the CCP." He noted his belief in the CCP pushing the "natural-spread-from-a-host-animal" theory.

Researchers working on finding the origination of the Covid-19 Pandemic have stated, "We must take hypotheses about both natural and laboratory spillovers seriously until we have sufficient data. A proper investigation should be transparent, objective, data-driven, inclusive of broad expertise, subject to independent oversight, and responsibly managed to minimize the impact of conflicts of interest. Public health agencies and research laboratories alike need to open their records to the public."

BladenOnline staff members witnessed firsthand how the First Amendment right is being trampled on, and how some government officials use terms like racism to divide the citizens and close doors to the media. Therefore, while we may not agree with calling the Covid-19 Pandemic the Xi Jinpingfluenza, we support Proctors' First Amendment right that he and so many others fought for by publishing his writings on BladenOnline.

In today's culture, we often misunderstand each other and are not allowed to have opposing ideas explained so all parties may understand each side. We do not have to agree, but every citizen deserves the right to voice their concerns.

We welcome anyone to write open letters, email us or call us about any concerns they may have about the works published on BladenOnline.com. Last but most importantly, we appreciate and support our freedoms, our team members, our readers, and the country we live in, which promotes unity in the face of dissimilarities.

Herb, don't you think it a little unusual that the only two people that have jump on the anti-Asian phobia going around spurred on by the democrat party. If it is not the American Indian, the black people, or the Japenese Americans, and now Asian Americans; one would think we have got to the point in this nation that we would be talking about American Americans. What segment of our population will you, Billy, and others who are looking for someone to blame for something be looking at next. Probably Bladen Americans.

If one is going into a news item looking to "notice Anti-Asian aspersion", guess what they will get? The slant that people are picking on Asian Americans. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Look to the perpetrators of violence against anyone, not to an "indie" or a specific reporter. Notice you and Billy and those of your ilk never look at who is actually doing violence any American. If we are living here, working here, worshiping here, raising our families here, and doing anything that is American by nature; then "walla", we must be Americans. Drop anything that goes before American when describing anyone who is an American. Personally, I dropped any of those tags decades ago as it applies to me; the only time it ever comes up is when I am looking up my ancestory. Reference former Congresswoman Barbara Jordan's speech many years ago about people of any nationality coming to America. Believe she was democrat; it was the truth. but it made democrats look so bad that they took it off the air waves. WE ARE AMERICANS.

As for BOL, the owner of this news source is more than fair. Why, she even allows people to comment who are as liberal as the day is long and at least two of them have called for people of this county to boycott and put it out of business. God bless you Mrs. Smith and Mr. Proctor, and Mr. Robert Hester, and those who read BLADENONLINE and comment on it. At least she hasn't went the route of the "other news source" in Bladen and BANNED people from commnenting on news items. Maybe you and Billy can contact that news outlet and find out why he does that. Now that would be and "aspersion".

I too noticed the Blake Proctor Anti-Asian aspersion and was more than dissapointed. I realize rhat the BladenOnline is attempting to be primarily a Trumpian Blog, but I see no point in encouraging the type of violence that I have seen enacted on Asian Americans in the last few months, certainly not in what purports to be a straight news article. Shame on you Mr. Proctor, do straight news or write an Opinion piece.

I hope GC will find that I am qualified to comment on his “Bladen County Newsmen”, given that I am a resident and certainly my wife’s family has lived here well over 100 years…. 🙂

Herb, nice try. Go back and look at the four items. They all involve things that democrats would not touch with the proverbial, "ten foot pole". A full investigation would call for Pelosi being removed from office and President Biden and VP Harris being impeached.
Herb P McIntyre Herb P McIntyre from Garland wrote on 05/19/2021 at 6:05 pm
GC… The 4 points you make sound like very good reasons to have a Bipartisan Investigation.

#1. Pelosi turned turned down assistance? Gee, what could possibly of been her motivation? If anyting I believe they would have killed her if possible.

#2. Were previous health problems what really caused the death of the police officers?

#3. Was it really BLM that led the insurrecttion? Wow, there must be a lot of white people in the BLM.

#4. Was it really just a tourist event?

A thorough Bipartisan Investigation could answer some of these questions.
