We sometimes focus so much on the South Carolina Upstate that we can forget that North Carolina is closer than some of the South Carolina counties we reference when discussing politics.

A new bill is being considered in South Carolina that would require high school students to take a one-half credit course in the subject of personal finance and pass a test at the end of the year to graduate. Financial experts agree that this is a great move, because a survey by the Council for Economic Education found 66% of states don’t require personal finance education.

Again -This makes COMMON sense. Ted Cruz has urged this logical funding idea for some time !! Why can’t Ted’s colleagues comprehend & ACT in support, thus ending this “funding diversion.” Yes, “The Mexicans (CAN &) WILL Pay for the Wall”!!!

I have stated regularly my support for calling, under Title V, a Convention of States, so that their needed agenda can be enacted. Frankly, I’m surprised that our S.C. Legislature has not been among the first to have already enacted this ‘call,’  as a dozen other State Legislatures have – speaking for “We The People!" Among key issues for the Convention action are Congressional Term Limits, Voter photo ID, a balanced Federal budget and get the Federal Government out of our health care and educational systems. (all consistent with our GOP positions).

YOUNG PEOPLE CANNOT LEARN FROM HISTORY ANY MORE BECAUSE HISTORY IS NO LONGER TAUGHT AS A REQUIRED SUBJECT IN PUBLIC HIGH SCHOOLS.

Theodore " Dutch " J. Van Kirk was the navigator on the  "Enola Gay when it dropped the bomb at Hiroshima , Japan, and is the last surviving member of the crew. This really happened.
