War resolution 'hostilities'

WASHINGTON -- If George W. Bush had ignored the views of his Justice Department's Office of Legal Counsel to avoid complying with the War Powers Resolution, Democrats would be going berserk. Barack Obama, I suspect, would be going berserk.

Governing by the rules

Recently in response to Governor Haley's attempt to force the South Carolina State Senate to do her bidding to reform state government, Senator Glenn McConnell in an editorial commentary made a convincing and timely statement with respect to deliberative legislative process and to the respect for constitutional law and the processes of orderly government.

In the late 1980s, the fight against global communism entered a crucial phrase. President Ronald Reagan publicly pressed Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. Pope John Paul II and Lech Walesa gave Polish workers the courage to rise up against their communist masters. The Velvet Revolution sprang up in Czechoslovakia.

Mystery medical shoppers

Officials at the Obama White House have been making calls to primary care doctors in this country, trying to make appointments in an effort to find out how difficult it is to do so if they're new patients. There's just one problem: those making the calls aren't identifying themselves and are basically "mystery shoppers" who are trying to ferret information from the doctors and trying to find out whether different answers are being given if they are paying privately or have public insurance such as Medicaid.

What is the well-dressed Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) deputy wearing these days? A new custom-measured bullet-proof vest.

Kids and guns

Whenever the subject of guns is brought up, it engenders strong opinion on both sides -- from those who believe in absolute Second Amendment rights, and from those who believe that nobody should be allowed to own a gun in any circumstances. Like most people, we fall somewhere in the middle, solidly on the side of Americans to own firearms but a bit dubious about why it makes sense for people to own Uzis and other automatic weapons that are made with the express purpose of killing people.
