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 ...

Editorial: Friendship Nine

About an hour north of Camden, nine civil rights protestors from the 1960s are scheduled today to receive a measure of justice after being jailed for staging a lunch counter protest in Rock Hill more than a half-century ago. Known as the Friendship Nine because they attended the now-defunct Friendship Junior College, the men protested a segregated lunch counter at a McCrory's store in 1961; they had decided prior to their actions that after being arrested, they would refuse bail and instead serve jail sentences as a way to spotlight their actions and the injustice leading to the sit-in.
