GOP not quite dead

If you depended on the national media for all your information, you'd get the idea that it's going to be clear sailing for Democrats in years to come; most metro papers and network news operations purport to be unbiased but in reality are shills for the national Democratic Party.

Hurricane Hugo

Everyone knows the weather is an acceptable source of discussion. Politics, religion and family, however, are fraught with danger when a person talks or writes. As I was listening to the news and awaiting information about a recent impending storm, my mind wandered back to a number of years ago when Hurricane Hugo was a problem.

Efforts to improve navigation of the Wateree River along the Kershaw County area of the river dates from just after the Revolutionary War.

What are the General Assembly’s priorities on taxes?

South Carolina is known as a "red state" and a "conservative" state, and so one might be led to believe it's a place where non-"progressive," free-market policies reign. Certainly, South Carolina has a reputation for being a "low tax state." But the reputation is unearned. A brief look at the legislature's record on tax policy -- perhaps the most fundamental free market issue -- reveals a profound disconnect between reputation and reality.
