Today's Opinions

  • NFL players stand up to Trump

        You’d think the President of the United States would have far greater concerns – North Korea, health care, our crumbling infrastructure – than what’s happening on the playing fields of professional football.
        But as we know, this idiot in the White House is unlike anyone before him, and we never know what will occupy his deranged mind. So, recently, he made one of his signature crazy speeches and went after NFL players who, to him, hadn’t sufficiently worshipped the American flag.

  • Trump was right

        Let me preface this column by reminding folks that I am not a Donald Trump fan. He wasn’t my first choice for the Republican Party nominee last year. He wasn’t my second or third choice either. I was appalled by the choice the two parties handed me and, during the debates between him and Satan’s Sister, I often wished the earth would split open and swallow them both like Dathan and Abiram in the Old Testament (Numbers 16:31-33) so we could start over with better candidates.

    Fred IS For Bedford

        Fred Sylvester is running for Bedford County Supervisor in District 2.  I suspect that all Bedford County residents agree that we need to increase and improve the levels of service in certain areas such as schools, police, fire and rescue, broadband access and more.  But, we are all concerned about increasing taxes.

  • Drop of Ink

        I do everything. Not only have I added SCA President to my pile of responsibilities, but I am now the Bedford Bulletin’s intern until April. For those of you who haven’t heard of me, however, allow me to introduce myself:

        I am Foster Garrett.
        Seventeen years ago, a party raged. People poured in from the streets and filled the house, dancing and chattering. However, the party is not what people remember when they think of that night.
        They remember me.

  • Fanciful ‘facts’ that don’t ring true

        Usually, when John Barnhart and I have a back-and-forth here in our respective columns, I’m happy to let him have the last word. It seems important to him.
        This time, however, I must break precedent, because there were a few claims in his column about Charlottesville that simply must be disputed.

  • Preying on the ill informed

        As I’ve mentioned before in this space, all the flap about Confederate monuments is strictly political. It’s an effort by the left to try to make up for their bankrupt ideology. They have no good ideas, so they attack symbols in an effort to give the impression that they are doing something. They are aided by the fact that so many people are ignorant or ill informed about American history.

  • Time to become presidential

        It’s time for President Donald Trump to start acting presidential.
        This past weekend, President Trump decided to take on NFL players who have kneeled in protest during the playing of the National Anthem. In a speech in Alabama on Friday, he demanded that NFL owners get rid of any players who follow through with that protest.

    Do something
    positive

        It is always amusing when someone who has no children attempts to advise parents on how to raise their offspring. It is equally ludicrous when someone outside the faith assumes the position of advisor to Christians by telling them what they and their churches should do in response to racism.
        On the Opinion page of the Bedford Bulletin, last week, a regular columnist appeared to think that his perception of Christians was more important than reality.
