Swap some Dems
to get soldier home
As long as we're talking about prisoner swaps regarding five of the Taliban's hierarchy for one AWOL-POW, Bowe Bergdahl, I have an idea for getting Marine Sgt. Tahmooressi out of the Mexican prison in which he's being held captive.
How about we swap five of our brightest and best; Pres. Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton. Is this a fair nation or what?
Love Myrtle Beach,
but hate the rally
I have lived here almost 50 years. I wasn't born here, but I got here as soon as I could. I love Myrtle Beach, and am glad I live here. It’s a shame when my family and friends from all over the United States call and tell me what they heard about our tragic Memorial Day weekend.
I want to say if I drove down U.S. 17 Business at 70 miles an hour and weaving back and forth from lane-to-lane, you can bet I would be stopped and probably go to jail.
Also I agree with Gov. Nikki Haley that we should stop the whole thing.
What’s Gov. Haley doing
about S.C. cyber scandal?
The U.S. Justice Department has indicted Chinese military officials of international cyberspying/hacking into several U.S. nuclear and solar power plants, steel companies, technology companies, and even a labor union.
Governor Haley, what's the status of investigations into the computer hacking/identity theft of S.C. state income tax returns of a couple years ago? Some taxpayers got letters about free credit report monitoring for a year. But what's the status of any arrests, indictments, or punishments of the guilty parties?
You, as the top S.C. state official, owe all S.C. income tax filers a speedy conclusion, with the guilty parties found and dealt with in a strict, lawful manner.

Young vets anonymously
treat older comrades in arms
With all the bad that happens all around us, there is still good to report. On the Sunday before Memorial Day, an African-American couple, young veterans, paid for lunch for 13 people including two 93-year-old veterans and an 81-year-old Vietnam veteran.
They left anonymously and I want to thank them for their generosity and love shown to an older crowd that was shocked to hear from the waitress at North Myrtle Beach Applebee's, the entire bill had been paid. May God continue to shine his blessings upon such a precious couple.
