John Edwards

John Edwards
I was watching CNN yesterday as they were covering the story of John Edwards' affair.

I was appalled - literally - at the number of callers, mostly female, who thought the media coverage wasn't fair and that this matter should be kept "private" for his family's sake.

Sorry ladies, but protecting his family was Dear John's job, and he not only failed, he is the only reason they are being humiliated. I feel sorry for them, but the truth has to be told.

These ladies apparently have the attitude that "boys will be boys," but that old adage should never apply to the MEN, not boys, who lend themselves to public service.

Since when do we consider leaders of the nation as little boys who can't help but misbehave and cheat on their wives?

This is not about religion - it is about accountability, integrity, morality, trust and decency.

This was the ultimate act of betrayal, made even more disgusting because of the poor health of his wife who needed his support more than ever.

If men can't stand loyal and true by their wives, the Mother of their children, when the wife needs them the most, then how can they be expected to be loyal and true to the core values of America?

His character is sorely lacking as is his self-control and moral compass.

It is time for us to demand a standard of morals and decency from those who would represent us in Congress, in the Senate, and certainly in the White House.

Once Dear John became a "public servant" and then proceeded to break his marriage vows and bring shame to his family, his behavior became fair game for the media.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

You can also learn more about the Zika virus from the Centers for Disease Control atCDC.gov/zika/.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is SCDHEC.gov/, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
