Today's Opinions

  • 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.

  • Letter: 2 good Samaritans helped couple out

    My husband and I would like to thank two kind people who helped us two Saturdays ago.

    We were going down the bypass and had a flat tire. We pulled in the Walmart parking lot. My husband got the spare out, and it was flat. A lady stopped and she had an air compressor. She pumped up the tire. A young man came by and took the tire off, put the spare on, and we were on our way.

    Many thanks to these “good Samaritans,” and God bless you both.

  • Letter: Indifference will destroy America

    Every day I see and hear the same thing. Oh, we need Hillary because she’s a woman, or Trump will make America great again.

    If you’re buying into either one of these mindless slogans, then that’s what you are… mindless. Neither one of these candidates will change the path this country is on. Neither party cares about anything except power.

  • 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.

  • Letter: No viable candidate in presidential race

    The presidential election is almost upon us. I want to share my views with anyone considering voting.
    Time journalist Joe Klein says Republican candidate Donald Trump is using “his lizard brain… rather than his frontal lobe, which is where thought and reason take place.”
    Klein said after Marco Rubio finished second in the S.C. primary, Trump sent out a tweet questioning Rubio’s citizenship. The fact is Rubio was born in the United States, the son of Cuban immigrants.

  • 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.”
