While President Joe Biden's administration doesn't seem to need an excuse to spend money, two recurring arguments for his gigantic $2.3 trillion infrastructure proposal are that our roads and bridges are "crumbling" and that modernization would generate economic growth and jobs -- hence its name, the American Jobs Plan. But none of this clever marketing makes any of these claims true.

Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson of Arkansas raised ire from conservatives for vetoing legislation passed by the Arkansas state legislature that would have banned "gender-affirming" medical treatment for transgender minors.

This includes treatment such as hormone therapy, puberty blockers and surgery associated with gender identity.

The legislature then overrode Hutchinson's veto, making Arkansas the nation's first state to ban these procedures.

What do DrewMcKissick’s NEWSMAX article and outgoing GCGOP Chairman Nate Leupp’s  “MESSAGE FROM CHAIRMAN LEUPP” have in common? Thereis not one mention of the Creator, Sustainer, and Governor of the nations. Botharticles are filled with self-adulation and self-promotion. There is not even aceremonial “Deus ex machina.” Jesus Christ our Lord and God Almighty are not evenmentioned. In my opinion, that is NOT the type of leadership that we need in Greenville(District 4) or in South Carolina.

In the 20th century and during the days of slavery in the 19th century and the 18th century, slaves and indentured Blacks were robbed of precious identities.

Today, when you say to me as a citizen of the United States of America, "You don't need to have an ID to vote," you are saying to me, your identity does not matter. You don't need to know who you are, just show up, vote my agenda, and I will stir your emotions, your fear, keep you in the dark, and continue to suppress your civil rights. I will call the privilege of your having ID and knowing who you are 'voter suppression.'"

The controversy surrounding the new voting law in the state of Georgia raises important issues regarding the governance of our country and the role of corporations.

Corporations are big and have a lot of economic clout, so there is justified concern about them abusing this economic power.

It's why there are such strict lobbying laws in Washington. We want to make sure that corporations don't step over the line of representing their legitimate interests in legitimate ways.

If a plane goes down, there has to be an investigation. Otherwise, no one would feel safe flying again. But a virus from China has killed 540,000 people in our country so far -- equal to two thousand jumbo jet crashes -- and the Biden administration is doing nothing to get to the bottom of it.

Scientists worldwide are divided over whether the virus jumped naturally from the animal world to humans, or whether the virus accidentally leaked from a lab such as the Wuhan Institute of Virology, where biowarfare research is conducted.
