  • Do Republicans know how to govern?

    As the battle for control of the U.S. Senate comes down to the wire in the coming weeks, Americans should ask all Republicans if they remember how to govern.
        Because, if they do win Senate control (God forbid; but it could happen), they will suddenly be faced with ownership of the problems in Washington, and they will have to lay off the insipid Obama-bashing and actually govern this nation.

    By J. Calvin Parrish

        As the State Executive Director of Virginia, I have traveled around this great state and have personally seen the resilience of our farmers and ranchers.

    Supporting law enforcement

        2015?
        We are one race, the human race. The way we think separates and divides us. The demonization of law enforcement that is seemingly becoming more pervasive in our nation should not be happening. This is 2015, we are one half century beyond 1965, or are we?

    Following the founding Fathers

        I wish to respond to the article written by Mr. Rick Howell, Obama Acts Correctly on Immigration (The Bedford Bulletin, 26 November 2014).
