The ordinance that is being proposed for a vote today by City Council is a governmental overreach.

I value my Constitutional rights and the liberties that I have enjoyed up until this point, liberties for which our forebears fought over 200 years ago.

Dear Mayor White,

Please reconsider the idea of instituting a shelter in place for Greenville. The city is already fairly deserted as it is. Businesses are struggling. There is no need to further alarm people and hurt businesses by this ordinance.

Did the Greenville County Council Read the Sunset Resolution?

The recent passing of the “Sunset Resolution” by the Greenville County Council should cause all of us to question if any of those in favor of the resolution really read it. If they had read it, they would have realized that they did not rescind the 1996 LGBTQ resolution which is an opinion resolution, not a policy resolution. Instead, they rescinded non-binding policy resolutions such as the Veterans’ and MLK holidays.

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).
