Time for Columbia, school districts to sue the out-of-control, tyrannical South Carolina state government

School for much of South Carolina, including for almost all of the remainder of the Aiken Area, starts on Monday.

And the tyrannical state government has given Columbia until 5:00 pm EDT today to remove its mandate and all options for masks in school, the only source of protection from COVID Delta for those 0-11 years old.

South Carolina state Senate rejects permitless carry

Columbia — It was unexpected, but South Carolina can breathe a sigh of relief.

The South Carolina state Senate rejected permitless open carry by three votes. The final vote was 25-21. Twenty-eight votes were needed to pass this vulgar, indecent bill that came out of nowhere late last month.

Openly carrying guns is the epitome of the destruction of morality and society in America

Once again, South Carolina continues the path of destruction of all morals in promoting the immoral gun culture.

Senator Mia McLeod wants the state to (rightfully) reimburse pregnant people for being forced (or coerced) to give birth

Columbia — A bill that’s been prefiled for the 2020 state legislative session aims to force anti-choice politicians walk the walk instead of just talking the talk.

Spartanburg quack wants to punish pregnant people with jail time for having abortions

Spartanburg — The genie is out of the bottle.

Robert Jackson, a quack who runs his own business in Spartanburg, wrote an op-ed for the Spartanburg Herald-Journal on Sunday calling for a total ban on all abortions and contraceptives and for prosecuting people who possess birth control and people who seek abortions.

Baby Boomers complain about missing their events as destructive weather tears through South

Edgefield — Baby Boomers are behaving like children again.

On Sunday, several sporting events – the NBA, NASCAR and NCAA women’s basketball among them – saw multiple interruptions due to radio and TV stations “breaking in” to cover tornados. The path of destruction stretched from near Auburn, Ala. to Bishopville. Locally, Edgefield County – which was not under the Tornado Watch – was hit so hard, the schools were on a two hour delay to start the day.

The result?

At least twenty-four people dead in the Auburn Micropolitan Area alone, nearly thirty dead overall.

However, a man named Andrew from the Savannah-Hilton Head Island market was outraged over WSAV interrupting the PGA Tour to cover severe weather that hit the Georgia Lowcountry. He lashed out at the station’s chief meteorologist, Kris Allred, who was merely doing her job of making sure the folks in her television market – which includes the Aiken Area counties of Bulloch, Hampton, Jenkins and Screven – took proper shelter and stayed safe from the storm.

Ms. Allred was kind enough to not respond to him. I am not sure I would be as kind to someone like that. In fact, I know I would have tore Andrew a new one if I was in the position Ms. Allred was in.

Props to Ms. Allred and the meterologists throughout the Aiken Area for keeping us safe.

Meet Josiah Magnuson, the man who wants government to control all South Carolinians with personhood bill

Columbia — The 2019 legislative session is upon us and it is not good news at all for anyone who cares about liberty.

Already, a Campobello Republican, Josiah Magnuson, prefiled a bill that would basically turn pregnant people into the property of the state of South Carolina.

Speaking to the Spartanburg GOP earlier this month, he said, “The Personhood Act will define life at conception so that all humans are protected under state law, regardless of age.”

The bill would, much like Ohio’s recently vetoed bill, prosecute women for having abortions and miscarriages.

As Vicki Ringer tweeted, there are a quartet of Dems cosponsoring this unconstitutional bill.

What part of get the government out of women’s lives do these arrogant politicians like Magnuson not understand?

What part of “Stop the Bans” do South Carolina politicians not get?

When will people who can not get pregnant stop trying to dictate pregnant people’s lives?

Pregnant people’s lives matter far more than that of a fetus. And furthermore, South Carolina was recently named the Worst State to Be a Woman.

Yes. The Worst State to Be a Woman due to anti-choice laws like this one.

These busybodies need to mind their own business. Kill this bill in the upcoming session on January 8, 2019!
