Re: “With my kind of conservatism on the rise, it's time to move on

All the best. We can make a rational, non-churchy conservatism in the USA. Though I'm not sure we can do it before the US defaults on our national debt. But that's for another day.

You will be missed. As I read this article, I could hear your voice speaking the words. For a minute there, I caught myself making sure that I was not going to hit any car, just like in the mornings when you were on the radio. Keep up the fight and call a spade a spade. Thank you!

When the day comes that the GOP is no longer seen as the party of war; when its default positions are no longer based on church doctrines; and when Lindsey Graham and John McCain are viewed as outsiders....Jack will be among those to thank.

Re: “With my kind of conservatism on the rise, it's time to move on

Good luck, Jack! Will miss you, but best wishes to your new responsibilities.

96 WAVE was a truly great station. For many years it was ranked as one of the top 5 rock stations in the country. First in America to play Pearl Jam. It was the voice & sound of Charleston for years. Like the original Music Farm and the Windjammer before Hugo, it too has become part of the nostalgia of our youth. Our high school & college years when music helped shape our lives, and when music, especially rock, was still great.

Every time you walk in a grocery store and buy beer on Sunday, either before getting on the boat, hitting the golf course, or a halftime beer run, you should thank 96 WAVE! They made it happen!

No surprise Ron & FCB are being assholes as usual. Gotta love that liberal tolerance and staunch support for the 1st Amendment. Not! Fail! Take your pick!

@John Cecil - Racist? Clearly sarcasm, parody, metaphors, & satire go right over your head. And as usual, your kind denying the truth with revisionist history. As far as why 96 WAVE went under, it was foolish management after being bought by corporate radio, APEX, and them alienating those that made 96 WAVE what it was and by changing the format. Outsiders trying to fix what ain't broken usually has such catastrophic results.

Such was the seed of demise for another Charleston radio station, the late great 3WZ. Another station that now resides in the fond memories of our youth.

Charleston has had 3 great radio stations. The 70s were dominated by WTMA and 3WZ. I remember laying in bed on Sunday nights listening to the King Biscuit Flower Hour on WTMA. I remember one summer wanting to win the GTO they were giving away even though I was still years away from having a drivers license. As the 70s, like AM radio, began to fade, 3WZ & FM became the sound of Charleston. Then 96 WAVE took the torch and pored gas on it!! That flame burned brighter than WTMA & 3WZ combined.

Music shapes and molds the minds of the young, which is why Rock 'n Roll helped bring down the Soviet Union and why Communists outlaw it and take over the media as part of their revolutions.

It's no coincidence that the quality of music and our youth both started going to hell around the same time!!!

In my short time here in Charleston, you never made me think -- except about your passion for Fieros.

Good luck, Jack. In these many years -- especially the Southern Avenger days -- I rarely agreed with you, but you always made me think.

God-Speed Jack-- We will miss the shenanigans and the voice of a true conservative Charlestonian. See you on the Facebook.

Re: “With my kind of conservatism on the rise, it's time to move on

Well, Jack, I couldn't help liking some of your columns the years, especially on international issues. You lost me with your support of Rand Paul and general Republicanism. Anyway, good luck. I will miss you to some extent.
Coincidentally, up here in Raleigh, the region's best newspaper, the News & Observer, just lost its regular rightwing columnist, Rick Martinez. Ricky, a more mainstream Republican, has gone off to work with our new Neanderthal governor.
I won't miss him to any extent.

Re: “With my kind of conservatism on the rise, it's time to move on

I'm pretty surprised you were the Southern Avenger. That was so racist there was a national boycott and all the subscribers dropped their advertising for 96 Wave, that went out of business, and reinforced the negative stereotype of South Carolina being a racist place. Glad you moved on to a more credible platform and dropped the racist clown act, however all the racist theatrics, including the flag issue over the statehouse, was a distraction and didn't represent the views of most people.

I love how when Republicans are beaten down they declare victory and "move on".

Good luck. It was always nice to read columns from someone on the right that wasn't riding the Glenn Beck bandwagon.

Re: “Bilderberg conspiracies have become a handicap for the Liberty Movement

Ron Paul killed his own chances. Ron Paul's more like great chum when you fish. Ron Paul never intended to win the Presidency. He did a great job nurturing and farming future blind Republicans at colleges across the country that would be dumb enough to settle for the likes of Rand Paul or Gary Johnson. Jack's just another paid wheel, he'd support anyone he could get a paycheck from.
