Veterans Day 2023 | Eastern North Carolina Now

On this day we honor those who have served in our armed forces and their families who stood behind them at home


Without doubt, our veterans are due the honor and appreciation they deserve on Veterans Day and any other time it happens.   Without any diminishing of that honor we want to also pay a special word of "thanks" to the families and loved ones who remain at home while their hero is deployed.  They suffer long, sleepless nights, holidays and special days like anniversaries, birthdays etc. miles apart from their loved one.  Many dread watching TV and seeing the danger their loved one faces.   Those with children, especially those older enough to know their parent is gone but not mature enough to understand why, need our prayers of support.  Sometimes waiting is worse than actually being gone.  These heroes deserve our special thanks on this special day.  May God give you peace and strength to....wait.

Trump is talking about setting up camps for illegal aliens who are in this country illegally in preparation for their deportation. Those are people who should be deported because they broke our immigration laws Eisenhower did the same thing in Operation Wetback.

The Deep State needs a deep cleaning. Careerists who have helped sabotage our immigration laws at DHS need their walking papers. Ditto careerists at the DOJ and FBI who have played partisan politics in those agencies.

If you mean voted out of office, I'm with you. If you mean firing people because of their politics, you lost me. Trump is already talking about setting up camps for people he doesn't like. That sick-o will bring about civil war just to save face.

John Steed, the police state is right here in Little Washington, acting under the direction of those appointed by the City Manager.
Not joking... as Biden would say.

The reason the left simply has to be rooted out is that they are turning America into a police state. Polls show that the American people comprehend this is happening.

The storm troopers of the police state, the corrupted DOJ and FBI need to be shut down and rebulit from the ground up so that they will not be politicized in the future.

As such, I am. Just donít forget that protecting what the flag represents is really what itís all about. Anyone think a reporter in Russia is able to see Putins tax returns?

Bob, you are right that people fight and die for what the flag represents and that is why it should be protected as a symbol of democracy and freedom. It is by the sacrifice of those who have served that you are able to express your position on where you stand. We should all be thankful for that.

Because they knew the reporter, the poet, the lawyer, and the university were worth risking their lives. Nobody fights and dies for a flag. People fight and die for what the flag represents. They served to protect my right to say: DJT, kiss my a$$. With all his millions and all his power he cant stop me from saying it. That in a nutshell is why people serve in the greatest country on earth. Truth to power.

(On Veteran's Day and always)
It was the Veteran, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.

It was the Veteran, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It was the Veteran, not the lawyer, who has given us the right to fair trial.

It was the Veteran, not the campus organizer, who has given us freedom to demonstrate.

It is the Veteran, who salutes the flag, who served under the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
