Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

"A bill currently being considered by the S.C. House of Representatives would require providers to arrange for the burial or cremation of fetal tissue following an abortion, adding another series of regulations and forcing providers to locate a funeral home that will associate with a clinic."

So, would this apply to women that simply have a miscarriage as well? What about very early term abortions, where it might well be difficult to even pick out what to cremate?

Why not spend some time helping those that have already been born? You know, be pro-life instead of just pro-birth?

Re: “A lawsuit against Carnival Cruise Lines continues

"Until Cunard makes Charleston a port of call, I couldn't give a shit."

Of course, Cunard is owned by Carnival Corp., so any finding in this case would apply to them as well, though I doubt any Cunard ship will be calling in Charleston anytime soon.

Re: “Charleston County considering a switch to paper ballots

There is no reason that the electronic voting machines could not be programmed to create a printed copy of the ballot submitted, which then could be verified by the voter and dropped into a sealed box. If there were any questions about the electronic results, the printed ballots, all of which should be readable since they were printed by the machine, could be counted by hand. I think all election jurisdictions need to make this a requirement for the vendors of the electronic machines.

Re: “The Supreme Court's latest ruling renders the Constitution null and void

The whole concept of what the Federal Government can and can't do vs. what is left to the States needs to be revisited anyway. When our founding fathers wrote the Constitution, it was a days journey to go from one State to the next (for the most part), and news took a long time to travel. There was a need for strong State Governments. Now, you can travel coast to coast in 5 hours, and news is instantaneous. Do we really want to have 50 little "countries" that have nothing more in common than a common military and currency? Should we start putting up border crossings at all the State lines? The whole concept of a weak Federal Government was tried in the Articles of Confederation, and even our founding fathers realized that didn't work. Obviously, there needs to be limits on what the Government can and cannot do, but I'm tired of hearing all the tired arguments of what our founding fathers intended or didn't intend. There is no way they could have anticipated the technological advancements of the last 225 years, and I certainly don't want to go back to living in the 1780's.

Re: “Where are you moving because of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act?

Folks, The AHCA is not government run health care. It is an insurance company regulation. There are no government bureaucrats involved in your health care decisions. However, your insurance company does have "death panels." They refer to them as "case management."

I love all the people claiming they will now move out of the country. I sure hope they find someplace better to live, but I doubt they will. I'm still waiting for Rush Limbaugh to move to Costa Rica as he promised he would if the AHCA passed. Well, now that the SCOTUS has upheld it, when does he leave?
