Columns

  • Column: FBI’s Comey: Move along folks, nothing to see here

    What were my feelings about the FBI findings on Hillary Clinton? First, I must say that I didn’t expect an indictment because she is a Clinton.

    If she had been before a grand jury and lied to them the way she did to the American people, she would have been in the same trouble Bill was in, but Bill was only impeached, disbarred and forced to pay an $850,000 settlement to Paula Jones. That would be a lot to some, but there was no jail time.

  • Column: Why is black man/white child a matter for police intervention?

    You hear of things happening all the time and you are concerned, but when it happens to your family member it really takes a different tone.

    After so much publicity about the veteran woman in North Carolina who received the note on her vehicle telling her she should be ashamed to park in a designated parking area for vets, we would think people would learn to be a little slower to assume.

  • Column: Did Confederate flag’s removal solve problems?

    One of Phil Noble’s recent columns begins by praising, once again, the removal of the Confederate flag from the S.C. State House grounds.

  • Column: Bringing Mexican political ethics to S.C.

    Now the most reasonable response to this headline is “Are you nuts? Isn’t Mexican politics riddled with corruption? What could we possibly learn from them?”

    The answers to these three questions are – no, yes and a lot.

    I suppose there are some who would argue that the answer to the first question is yes, but I haven’t been locked up yet, so give me the benefit of the doubt on this one and let’s skip to the more important questions.

  • Column: What Brexit upheaval means to us in S.C.

    Brexit was the vote last week by the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. While this one sentence is true, it’s a little like saying “the South lost the Civil War” – true, but there is a whole lot more to the story.

  • Column: Justice system out of whack in our country

    Our so-called justice system is upside down, which I believe is caused by progressives from both political parties.
    Progressives are not in politics to do what is right but to provide themselves power over people’s lives.
    I have some examples to share.
    We have a candidate for president who is under investigation for possible criminal actions while serving as a cabinet member. But do not worry about her. A pardon is coming soon from the current president.

  • Column: Mr. Noble should stick to topics he understands

    Another article from Phil Noble has graced our local paper, but I begin to grow weary of Mr. Noble’s columns.
    It’s not his ability that bothers me – he is a good writer –but rather his content and conclusions. And yes, I am aware that there are probably many who would share similar feelings toward my contributions here.

  • Column: S.C. moving in right direction on race

    In the early days of World War II, the British, standing nearly alone, suffered a number of huge defeats. And then in November 1942, they won a major victory defeating Gen. Rommel’s forces in North Africa.
    In reporting this victory to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, “Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

  • Column: We don’t need the disaffected

    Is there a point in everyone’s life where you just sit back and say, “Enough is enough?”
    It seems that with every news cycle, there is another story about an American finding fault with this country. Does anyone but me see this?
    We achieved our reputation and world standing through the generations that America has existed due to our Constitution and Bill of Rights.

  • Column: Tanner responds to Evans’ column

    I just want to let Dianne Evans, who serves on the Lancaster County Library Board, know that I believe rules need to be applied and followed. (Evans wrote the column, “Some think rules don’t apply to them,” in last week’s Gateway.)
    What many residents don’t realize is that all the county boards and commissions are different and, therefore, their rules need to be written accordingly.
