Yes, can you imagine such a ratio? That is the ratio of 99 seasonal flu deaths here in So. Carolina so far this season, vs just one (newly reported) death from the coronavirus here in S.C.  Yet we hear nothing of the continuing flu deaths; we even have a questionably successful flu vaccine available for years.  Statistically, the (seasonal) death total for the U.S. from flu is anywhere between 12,000 and multi 10Ms  each year.  Yet we hear virtually nothing currently, just be sure 'and get your flu shot!'

Let's go back to April, 1964, Cleveland, Ohio. Our Young Republican Club (John Birch 'chapter'!) was sponsoring a speech by John Martino, speaker for the John Birch Society, author of "I Was Castro's Prisoner."  Martino was a small business owner in Cuba, in opposition to new dictator Fidel Castro sufficiently enough to be thrown in prison ( and apparently not so sufficient as to be remove by a firing squad).

We hear incessantly of the so-called "two wings" of the Democratic Party; ie, the 'left wing' and the 'moderates.' Sorry, but they really are one and the same.

Here's whats going on: The 'Sanders' et al wing (medicare for all; the Green New Deal; global warming; pay-off student debt; free college for all; unlimited abortions; most all of the above, or some variation of same;) this being the 'socialist', statist, marxist, whatever, wing of the party. Highly supported by ignorant, brain-washed college/youth plus liberal democrats of old who have just been seduced to the general leftward movement of politics/society/culture.

Governor’s Office Interview

Last year, I received an email responding to my South Carolina Governor’s internship application. I was asked to contact the deputy chief of staff to schedule an interview. When there was no response after five months to my email and two voicemails, I realized I was promised an interview that was never intended for me.

Is there any hope ... for civility, integrity, truth, common sense ... yeah, for the Constitution, even the Republic??

Let me give you some examples why I ask, what you may consider, a ridiculous question. Recently I was watching an ESPN promotion piece re: Michael Vick; you know, the NFL star quarterback who spent a couple of years in prison for dog-fighting and other cruelties. A female sports reporter was questioning whether Vick, who had apologized for his actions and had served the jail time, how could we know that he was truly repentant of these terrible crimes? I'm sorry, but ever day in the U.S. we are aborting something like 3,000 at least innocent unborns. And she, and essentially the rest of America is more concerned about some dogs!!
