Executive Director of TATT Dean Hybl welcomed the attendees to the forum and explained the meeting objectives were to, “Develop a shared knowledge of the work-to-date that has focused on aspects of teacher shortage, and Unveil a regional teaching brand as well as evaluate opportunities for k12, higher ed, and business to utilize it.”
The following are my opinions on this meeting.

Trump, 2020 – And A Very Cautious Electorate
- By Joseph M. Bianchi
With recent polling showing some significant vulnerabilities in President Trump’s popularity, the prospects of an easy road back to the White House just became much more complicated.
While Trump’s deep base of loyalists will remain at full volume right up until election night, there is a rattling even among ardent supporters that should make most conservative pundits nervous.
There are certainly concrete achievements that can be pointed to in order to bolster the image of the President as a “doer and accomplisher”; these are the things that most Trump supporters point to quickly as a shield against frontal attacks.

Are You Aware of What Your Child is Learning About Sex in SC Public Schools?
- By Johnnelle Raines
As the new 2019-2020 school year swings into action, many parents are thrilled to have their children back in their seats at government operated schools. This of course frees parents up during the day to pursue their own personal interests, or in some cases, economically helps them not to have to pay for summer child care.

Article by Dr. Kirk Neely
- By Jim S. Brooks - Roebuck, SC
Dr. Kirk Neely, Religion Department at the University of South Carolina Upstate, recently wrote an article in an upstate newspaper correctly pinpointing hatred and prejudice as a basic problem of mankind which often results in physical violence and death to others. (Remembering 9/11, 09-13-19: also worth reading for memorializing tragic, useless human suffering and brave actions of first responders.) Mankind clearly needs help! Dr. Neely advocated studying other world faith systems as a solution to counter hatred. Perhaps we would do better, instead, to advocate adherents of other world faith systems in the United States and around the world to study Christianity for individual self reflection? It was not individual adherents of Christianity that brought down the Twin Towers! Dr. Neely concludes man should be more loving toward others. True!! But where do we get that individual power? History of mankind graphically demonstrates we humans do not have the inherent power to end hatred, violence and war among men. Man’s hatred can not be overcome by “human” wisdom or “human” religion! But there is a wisdom and truth that transcends collective human wisdom for individuals!

I do not understand why the bill H.3456 is not on the floor of SC Congress for discussion and passing of this bill. What are you doing to protect my 2nd Amendment rights?
American history and history of other nations tells us not to give up our guns:
- A Japanese General was asked, “Why did you bomb Pearl Harbor instead of coming on land to attack America”? He stated because all the Americans had guns and would shoot us. We would be fighting the military and the people. We could not win that way.
- Look at what’s going on in Venezuela since given up their guns. They kept warning us to not give up our guns for years. Telling us to look at them. They refused for a long time not to give up their guns, but over the years they gave in. They stated that within months after giving up their guns, they were under dictatorship.

‘Our Country Should Be More Fearful of White Man’: Ilhan Omar’s Past Comments Ammunition in ‘Political Food Fight’ with Trump
- By David Brody
President Donald Trump and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) exchanged more harsh rhetoric Tuesday in a fight that just will not die down.
President Trump is not backing down and clearly, neither are the so-called "squad." No, this is a battle to the political death.
Racism and politics – not a day goes by without the toxic subject making an appearance.
