Your criticism of the Border Patrol would be easier to agree with and support, if you would have said something eight years ago when Obama was doing it.

The rhetoric we are hearing about the roads is a lot of bull, dragging on the no fix. Bridges for people to cross, bridges to nowhere, far less money to fix any major repairs. Where’s the money, spent on the big fat tax giveaway to the rich. Repairs not coming.

The Democrat Party has become a socialist/communist party, hell-bent on destroying this once great country. Anyone in their right mind, would not vote for a Liberal, unless they don’t like the booming economy.

Joe isn’t quitting his job as senator because he doesn’t like it. He’s quitting because voters don’t like him as senator and are trying hard to vote him out. Still enough uninformed voters though to put him back in Governor’s Office.

Are the women at the shelter invited to Girls Night Out?

If full employment only means there are fewer unemployed, then congratulations. If it means people are working two or more jobs, when one used to be enough, just to squeak by, then it means something entirely different. To raise a family and sustain a middle-class life used to require one job. Today, both spouses need one or more jobs just to keep afloat. A high stock market and full employment does not at all help the average American who’s working longer for lower wages.

We are now under the control of a dictatorship thanks to the Republicans in congress.

The Democrats in Congress, media and entertainment have cried wolf so much that normal Americans don’t pay much attention to their cries of Constitutional crisis. They do pay attention that Congress doesn’t get much done.

Have to agree that parking in downtown Charleston is horrific at best. It’s hard to try and draw people and business to downtown when parking is so expensive and inconvenient. I’m not sure what the answer is, but I do know that what they are doing right now is not the best solution.

I can’t believe a city the size of Charleston has no good golf courses for visiting convention center businessmen and women. How are we supposed to attract conventions?
