Clemson / An Open Letter & Open Reply / Poppycock
- By H.K. Edgerton
Approximately 16 years ago, on the Historic March Across Dixie, alongside many of our Southern family, my brothers and I don in the uniform of the Southern soldier with the Southern Cross in hand, we would make our way thru the Clemson University community; only to be stopped by a member of the Clemson City police and told that we needed a $300,000 insurance policy before we could continue the March to Austin, Texas.
Several hours later after the finagling of the Honorable Attorney Kirk D. Lyons, alongside a very nice policeman, two of us were allowed to cross the bridge into Seneca, South Carolina to begin the journey anew with the others who waited. I would return 5 years later and make the journey again with no problem.

The Beloved Senator John McCain – NOT!
- By John Utz - Greenville, SC
"The beloved Senator John McCain" ...So stated Neil Cavuto of the Deep State FoxNews on an early broadcast shortly after McCain's death. Cavuto also referred to (2nd) wife Cindy as a 'school teacher,' corrected soon thereafter to 'heiress' (of a Budweiser Arizona franchise!). Listeners, aware of the scandalous and unprincipled activities of McCain, persumably forced the correction.

Friends and Enemies of the People
- By Winston McCuen - Landrum, S.C.
CNN reporter Jim Acosta bitterly complains when Trump calls the mainstream media an “enemy of the people.” Acosta says Trump is an Orwellian tyrant, while Trump accuses Acosta and other liberals of deceiving the public with fake news.
Two of the most profound works on freedom of speech and press are John Milton’s Areopagitica (1644) and John C. Calhoun’s Disquisition on Government (1851). Milton the Englishman penned that mighty Christian poem, Paradise Lost. Calhoun was America’s greatest statesman and philosopher. Both men were pioneers in theorizing about the free press. Both were mental giants who spied a new and important element in politics; and a great and influential force in the modern age.

The top U.S. Senate democrat is afraid that President Trump’s nominee to the Supreme Court might be inclined to favor reversal of Roe v. Wade. He and some of his fellow colleagues, want to continue the killing of innocent unborn babies.
Which is a terribly inhumane act that goes against God’s Laws.
