"...people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil" - John 3:19 ....... A forum by, for and about Beaufort County, NC.---Speaking Truth To Power---We seek to be Right, not balanced--- "Liberty cannot be preserved without a general knowledge among the people, who have a right...to knowledge, as their great Creator...has given them understandings, and a desire to know, but besides this, they have a right, an indisputable, unalienable, indefeasible, divine right to that most dreaded and envied kind of knowledge; I mean, of the characters and conduct of their rulers"--John Adams, Dissertation on Canon and Fedual Law, 1765.Spacer
