Dangerous politics

With the country on the brink of a debt default, and with elected officials in Washington locked in combat, it has never been more apparent how fragile the art of compromise is in the nation's capital. Most believe the reason is that for years, members of the Republican and Democratic parties have become more and more polarized, Republicans hewing to the hard right and Democrats to the hard left. There's lots of space to meet in the middle, but Washington pols don't appear interested. This is frustrating to many centrists who believe government shouldn't exist on ...

Some suggestions for federal debt reduction

Start at the top instead of the bottom. President Obama used Air Force One a total of 172 times at an estimated cost of $200 million per flight in 2010. The total will probably be exceeded in 2011. The ex-speaker of the House used a large corporate jet from the same Special Air Mission Flight for weekly jaunts to California. The suggestion would be to cut the federal travel budget in half by only allowing essential travel and no paid travel for campaign contributions.

Keeping free speech alive

I recently posted an article on the Kershaw County Patriots page on Facebook that seems to have stirred up a bit of a controversy. The article was entitled "When is It OK to Shoot a Cop." I asked that anyone who wished to comment on the article read it first. With the exception of myself, no one commented on the article. The page is an open page and all comments are welcome as a way to open a healthy debate. It seems, however, rather than commenting on the article, someone from law enforcement contacted this paper and complained. Why did ...

Noted and passed -- July 25, 2011

• Actress Jane Fonda says she's "deeply disappointed that (shopping channel) QVC caved in to insane pressure" and cancelled her recent television appearance. Fonda, as you might recall, straddled a Viet Cong anti-aircraft gun during the Vietnam war; she later charged she'd been tricked into the stunt. But people have long memories. Fonda's conduct went far beyond activism and protest, amounting instead to consorting with the enemy, and she must live with the consequences. If QVC made the decision to cancel her appearance because the company thought she would ultimately hurt business, the network had every right to ...

Letters: Reader says Democrats ‘confessing’ torture is distraction

I'm sure everyone is abreast of all the hullaballoo over interrogation techniques used by the CIA to get information from the Guantanamo detainees to assist in avoiding another World Trade Center disaster. Dianne Feinstein, along with Obama and most of the congressional Democrats, insisted on "confessing," as they put it, despite the secretary of state urging against it, terming it detrimental to our interests and safety abroad. So, immediately, China and Korea termed us "bad boys," and why not -- didn't the current administration essentially say that?

Editorial: Police officers

With police behavior having been in the news recently because of incidents in which white officers killed unarmed black citizens, there has been much discussion -- rightfully so -- about whether some officers are acting recklessly. Racial profiling, of course, has been a part of this discussion, as it should be. It's interesting, then, that the U.S. Supreme Court handed down an opinion earlier this week giving some leeway to police who make "reasonable mistakes" in enforcing the law. Of course, reasonable mistakes don't include the right by officers to act without provocation or to use undue force. And ...
