CNBC's Maria Bartiromo: "Do you think it's right that Boeing has to close down that plant in South Carolina because it's non-union?"
Is the United States in decline? With protesters in the streets, Washington in gridlock and our economy on life support, it's easy to understand why the question is being asked a lot these days. But, as an old saying goes, where you stand depends on where you sit.
WASHINGTON -- If you were Herman Cain, what would you do?
It's a simple-yet-intriguing idea: a web site that allows presidential candidates from across the country -- and politicians vying for a host of other races, too -- to simply and unequivocally state their positions on important issues so that voters can know exactly where they stand.
It's been nearly two weeks since Halloween.
To this point in the 2012 election cycle, the Republican contenders have been all bark and no bite when it comes to the nation's energy future. President Obama's approach, however, hasn't been much better.
WASHINGTON -- Herman Cain searched his memory for details about what might have caused a woman in the 1990s to accuse him of sexual harassment.
You might wonder how KershawHealth meets the health and wellness needs of our community. After all, creating a healthier community is an integral part of our mission. How do we provide the education, support and activities that will accomplish this worthy goal?
President candidate Herman Cain came to Washington to talk about his tax plans but ended up talking about sex. Welcome to the life of the top-tier candidate, Mr. Cain.
Beginning in the 1830s and continuing to about 1980, the railroad was a very important component in the "warp and weave" of the nation's fabric. During this period the railroad was one of the chief transporters of passengers, mail, and goods used in America.
I admit it.
Random thoughts on a brilliant fall afternoon:
WASHINGTON -- Herman Cain's craggy-faced Chief of Staff Mark Block took a drag off a cigarette, blew smoke at the camera and sent the political class into coughing fits.
An outraged liberal group has called for MSNBC to fire Pat Buchanan for what it calls "white supremacist" views. I'd rather leave Pat and his views free to discredit themselves.
"I'd prop him up and put a pair of dark glasses on him and keep him as long as I could."
After years of declaring a group or person of the year, I used this space a year ago to name KershawHealth the 2013 story of the year.
It was late in the summer of my parents' lives that I was born into a family with three children well on their way to being grown and done with home.
I threw away my Bill Cosby book a few days ago. It was funny, and it made me laugh but now because of who wrote it, it disgusts me. Perhaps that is petty, but I cannot read it or watch shows associated with Bill Cosby any longer.
When I was a school boy, there was a kid down the street named Rodney who had an "attitude problem," or at least that's what the adults called it. To me and my friends, Rodney was just a jerk.
We're now entering the most sacred season of the year, that time when men in Kershaw County bow their heads, reflect on their good fortune and ponder COLLEGE FOOTBALL BOWL SEASON.
WASHINGTON -- Get ready for your tax rates to go up.
I am a big believer in everyone's right to think and feel however they choose to. It's really what makes us all American and, to make it even broader, it's what makes us all human. If I don't happen to agree with your point of view, I still respect your right to have that point of view.
One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.
To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don't know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn't the greatest.
Recently, I had lunch with three old friends. All of us are proud South Carolina natives, amateur history buffs and great fans of barbecue (BBQ). We decided to meet at a new BBQ joint that we were all anxious to try.
WASHINGTON -- First there's the spark, then the conflagration, followed by the litigation and then, surely, the movie.
