Another 'good ole boy' lawsuit

Well let's get these ridiculous and embarrassing law suits going again. Get them back on course! They are such a good use for our country's image and above all, a great way to spend our tax dollars. Our county needed a sheriff change and now that Jim Matthews has become our sheriff and seems to be doing all the right things for all of us, he seems to have upset our country's "good ole boys."

Political courage

President Obama has shown a willing to stand up, speak out and to take definitive act even in the face of political and social risk for the health needs of the poor and other who has been locked out and price out of access to health care before fulfilling his own political ambition.

Alzheimer's

More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, the tragic malady that robs people of their ability to function mentally. Countless others -- family members and friends -- are affected by the dread disease, and researchers have been unable to make significant progress in fighting Alzheimer's. It has long been suspected that a build-up in the brain of a sticky substance called beta amyloid plays a part in the disease, but such hypotheses haven't been proved and treatment and prevention options haven't improved much.

A sad day

It is a sad day in America, which is supposed to be land of the free and home of the brave when so many people have voted for no prayer in schools and no National Anthem and if they do they wind up getting sued by someone has never had a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Ironically, voters here in South Carolina are being largely spared the endless spate of advertising drivel because the Palmetto State is considered firmly in Romney's camp, with Obama given little or no chance of winning here. Similarly, voters in states like Vermont and Oregon, where the ...
