Building a better health care system

Eight years ago, then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stated that we would have to pass the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, in order to figure out what was in it. Thanks to that irresponsible logic, the American people were forced into a healthcare system that is unable to keep the promises on which it was sold.

Once a sinner...

Hosea, can you see?

WASHINGTON -- Republicans can argue until their last breath that Trump objectors are sore losers, but isn't more at stake than "mere politics"? This phrase has been rendered quaint by such serious issues as: Russian hackers apparently trying to tilt the election toward Donald Trump; the FBI's possibly politically motivated practices; Trump's initial resistance to the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence community; Trump's refusal to release tax records, which might mollify concerns about his relationship with Russia.

Celebrate MLK for the right reasons

When I was in elementary school, I used to love MLK Day. Not for the shallow reason that we had the day off, but for another shallow reason. It was my day to watch my favorite animated movie, "Our Friend Martin." It was an amazing movie where a preteen black American male had friends who were white and Hispanic. He never showed reverence for Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy. Because of a field trip to a museum -- and a mishap -- he somehow was transported to the time when Dr. King was a kid. He then happens to follow Dr ...

Dylann Roof's last act

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- If Death lingers in courtroom corridors awaiting sentences, this historic city's federal courthouse was surely a top destination. On Tuesday, the Reaper's patience was rewarded with the jury's return of the death penalty for Dylann Roof.

President-elect Trumpschenko

WASHINGTON -- First, a history refresher: For the past nine years, a smattering of Americans, most recently led by our now president-elect, have insisted that Barack Obama is a Muslim born in Kenya.

Fear thee well to 2016

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- As usual, the year's end brings reflections and ruminations on what was and what is to be. This time around, however, it feels as though an era is coming to an end.

Reflections

While everybody is at watch night service on Saturday night, I will probably be eating sushi with my boyfriend as I prepare for the ball to drop. Does this make me a heathen? I will go to watch night someday (I have not been in years), but not this weekend.

Do not paint a picture of perfection

One of my best friends graduated from Francis Marion University on Saturday. She is the last one in our small group to graduate. We are all FMU alumni. When we first entered Francis Marion we swore we were all going to be class of 2016. As I have a cocky moment and brush this dirt off my shoulder, we did it!!

My Saturday rarely goes as planned

My weekends have been free as of late, and I have enjoyed them. For some odd reason though, my body wakes up at the same time every day. If I go to bed at 2 a.m. on a Saturday morning, I will wake up the next morning at 7 a.m. like I would during the work week.
