Federal and state taxes and budgeting

Our tax code should be simplified. "Experts" have been saying taxes must be reduced to equal revenue, and then some, to deal with our trillion dollar debt. They are also saying we must reduce all expenditure by $40 billion, $6 billion, etc., and the way to accomplish this is to cut all expenditures as compared to previous expenses (both state and federal) by eliminating redundancies, duplications, and overlap. This is "water over the dam" and only prolongs the problem and increases time and effort expended, both direct and indirect.

Let me call him sweetheart

Righting the wrongs

In a perfect world -- in a political system that functioned more as our forefathers intended rather than how it actually does -- elected officials in Washington would take on issues based on the importance of those matters rather than how the politicians would be affected at the ballot box in their next re-election campaign. But, of course, it's not a perfect world, and sometimes lawmakers can be most productive when they can plow ahead without having to worry about repercussions at the voting booth.

Column: Big green city

One of the things I enjoy most about what I do is being invited to cities around the country. Whether I'm speaking at conferences, banding birds or taking part in archaeological digs, I look forward to being able to spend time in places that are different from small town South Carolina. One of the draws for me is getting to see the way other places address conservation issues. I absolutely love seeing the various approaches to environmental issues by municipalities and hearing ideas from diverse groups of conservationists. My most recent trip was no different, giving me hope that ...

Obama and race

Attorney General Eric Holder's recent statement that race plays a part in some Americans' opposition to President Obama's policies has stirred strong reaction from both liberals and conservatives, and reaction has highlighted the fact -- no surprise here -- that blacks and whites often look at issues of race differently. We suspect that Kershaw County would mirror the national opinions of a recent Gallup poll in which people were asked whether this country's criminal justice system is biased against blacks. More than two-thirds of whites said no, while about the same percentage of blacks said yes.
