John McCain an Honest Man

Watching the Republican convention was almost unbearable until the arrival of John McCain, an honest man.

Listening to his speech reminded me of what the Republican party once stood for - integrity, honesty, and compassion for all.

I couldn't help but notice that every time McCain spoke of things the Republicans had done, he spoke in past tense. That's how I know he is still a man of integrity. He did not lie about things he may WISH the republicans were doing. He spoke of what they did in the past.

He did not lie about President Obama.

I don't agree with John McCain's military vision for America.

I, for one, am tired of sacrificing the lives of our military troops. Let's face it, the best scenario they can hope for is to come home with emotional scars that will change their lives as well as the lives of their families. The worst case is that they don't come home at all. In between those two extremes we have those who come home without all the body parts they left with. This is a bleak picture no matter how you look at it.

Why? So we can play "King of the Hill" with the world?

Please. Be rational. Are our freedoms truly in jeopardy?

I have no doubt that if some other country takes that position with evil intentions (which is what every Republican assumes), that we would be able to take them down quite easily in a very short time.

Meanwhile, let them be King of the Hill. I find it too costly an endeavor.

However, I digress. It was a nice change of pace to hear a public servant speak truth while all the politicians around him are perpetuating blatant lies about President Obama. It's a very sad thing to watch.

Thank you John McCain, for being an honest man.

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.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

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.
