July 4th is all about symbols and celebration

As we head into what should be one of the nation's most joyous holidays, July 4th, we do so on the heels of a whirlwind of events and attitudes that make some think our amazing republic is coming apart at the seams.
It seems no one person or party has someone willing to stand up and tell us how to keep our great nation great. But it is just as well, for our electorate is highly unlikely to vote for someone willing to tell us what we need to hear as opposed to what we want to hear.

ANIMALS vs HUMANS?
As I was catching up on my postings to our Facebook page, I came across the letter to the Editor about Animal Rights over Human Rights, where a dog bit a child in Rocky Mount. Others were criticizing an Animal Control officer because it looked like he was dragging the dog to his truck. The dog is fighting against the restraint, as many will do because it scares them. It is a slip lead, one that just happens to have a pole between the dog and the handler. A catch pole.
