Rants & Raves

IF GOV. NIKKI HALEY pays for her own food, she can eat what she bloody well pleases in the governor’s mansion. Does state Sen. Darrell Jackson think South Carolina is already a socialist nation where such as he can dictate everything?

 

ANDY REESE WROTE an articulate and well-written letter April 22, “Liberal built freer world.” While it was well-written, the underlying principles were somewhat skewed. Mr. Reese starts from a faulty definition of conservative and liberal/progressive. Conservatives want to build higher while maintaining foundational truths. Liberal/progressives want to build higher while destroying foundational truths.

 

DEMOCRATS CONTROL 55 seats in the Senate, and Republicans would need to hang on to the ones they control and pick up six more next year to take control for the first time since 2006. When was the last time the United States of America had a vibrant, growing, healthy economy? The answer: 2006.

 

THE PROBLEM WITH “lines in the sand” is that someone without the courage to lead can erase them and reset them. What we need is a line in stone. Well, that and a courageous leader.

 

DOES A CHRISTIAN WHO loves God and serves God believe in abortion, same-sex marriage, taking from those who work and giving to lazy people who don’t work and won’t work, and blame his own country because other countries hate us?

 

WHAT EXACTLY DOES
Georgia Regents University President Ricardo Azziz hold over the heads of the Board of Regents?

 

IN THE LATE 1880s, there were more than 1,000 people attending a major boxing match. The Fort Worth, Texas, mayor saw trouble brewing and telegraphed the Texas Rangers in Dallas for help. On the next train, one ranger got off. The mayor asked why they sent only one, and he replied. “You’ve only got one riot.”

The mere presence of such a ranger stopped all the potential trouble. We need one such cop to patrol places like the riverwalk.

 

IF YOU BELIEVE IN the Better Business Bureau, I bet you believe in leprechauns and fairies and Santa Claus and the Tooth Fairy.
