  • President continues to slander Americans

    At the National Prayer Breakfast, President Barack Obama, in again defending Islam, compared actions of Islam to things done “in the name of Christ.” He babbled about the Crusades, in Inquisition, slavery and Jim Crow laws. The president needs a history lesson, other than from his past communist mentor,

    The Crusades were a defensive Christian reaction against the Muslim attack on Jerusalem, and the wholesale killing of Christians in Europe and Africa. Sound familiar?

  • Kershaw fortunate to have a farmers market

    The Kershaw Chamber of Commerce would like to thank all the vendors at the farmers market, who participate weekly and more at the area below the Kershaw Fire Department. We started out allowing only produce and plants to be displayed and sold there. But the vendors got skimpier and skimpier, so we decided to allow yard sale vendors, also.

    It has been amazing at how this has become a place of fellowship, friendliness and a coming together of our town and community. It is really the place to be on Saturday mornings.

  • The ‘I am’ statements of Christ

    As recorded in John’s Gospel, Jesus made seven amazing statements about himself that no one else has ever made.

    Shortly after he fed the multitudes by multiplying five loaves and two small fishes, a crowd seeking another miracle brought up the manna that God provided for the children of Israel during their long march through the wilderness.

    To them, Jesus’ spectacular one-day miracle faded in comparison to God’s 40-year-long provision of bread from heaven.

  • It’s time to stop the slaughter of innocents

    Rarely in life do we get to meet a demon face to face. More often than not, it just stalks our path.

    But in this case, I would come to know a demon, who was not only traveling my route, but was a neighbor.

    In the late 1970s on the northwest side of Chicago, a demon was obviously hard at work. More than 30 youngsters from the area disappeared and no one had a clue.

    It was 1978 and I was then living at the northwesterly tip of the city, just off the O’Hare Airport cloverleaf, and traveling to Wisconsin on business most every weekend.

  • Automatic retirement savings: A good idea for South Carolina

    Back in 1932, during the depths of the Great Depression, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis wrote that “a single courageous state may, if its citizens choose, serve as a laboratory; and try novel social and economic experiments without risk to the rest of the country.”

  • Go gridlock!

    Now that the State of the Union has been delivered, it’s time for all the usual suspects to start chiming in with all their predictable comments.

    The Republicans undoubtedly will call the president obtuse for refusing to heed the recent election as a call to rethink his policies, and his Democratic Party allies will line up behind him, cheering his tenacity in the face of an increasingly unforgiving opposition.

    But because that opposition now has a majority in Congress, virtually nothing that the president has proposed will ever see the light of day.

  • Lawmakers spend campaign funds on their own businesses

    In the 2008 and 2012 elections, S.C. Sen. Thomas Alexander faced little or no formal opposition.
