Our power bills—and other musings

I don’t know anyone too happy knowing that a chunk of our monthly power bill is going literally into a hole that seems bottomless.  We have our General Assembly, Westinghouse, SCANA, Santee Cooper and I’m sure plenty of others for this.  It really frustrates me.  I know it doesn’t make you very happy either.  So,… Read more »

New Year—some things change and some do not

2018…..a year into the Donald Trump Presidency.  The economy is humming.  Unemployment numbers…the stock market…new home sales….GDP….all the numbers are going in the right direction.  The media doesn’t care.  They won’t give this POTUS any love or credit.  They’ll worry more about his offensive remarks about Haiti than they will about people seeing rising wages… Read more »

Time is almost up on North Korea

Total fail.  All spewed rhetoric about sanctions and talking tough.  All knew that with time and technology… Read more »

Governor does the right thing

When our South Carolina General Assembly convened in early January, they were given one responsibility; fix the roads.  So…..they’ve done that!  Yeah!  Rah Rah!  Good job!  Well, not-so-much.  The bill is not good—the tax….or, should we say, the fees involved are not good.  Add to that the absolute fact that the reform this bill claims… Read more »

Two Presidents?

 This will come as no surprise to you— some people LOVE President Donald J. Trump.  Some people HATE President Donald J. Trump.  Some people still cannot believe that he’s the POTUS.  Many are having a hard time adjusting to this Presidency.         I’ve come to an interesting conclusion about President Trump.  Instead of… Read more »

President Donald J. Trump!

So here’s how I see it—our new President is getting after it as he promised he’d do!  That’s awesome.  I have only one criticism to this point—I just want him to get out of his own way.  Do you really think Americans care about how many people watched the inauguration?  Do you really want to… Read more »
