    Please add my brother, Rev Mikel Frey, to your prayer list. He has a virile infection in his only kidney. Hopefully, with your prayers, the good LORD will see that it is cleared up and/or that he is able to get a new Kidney. Oh, Lord please help my brother and keep him safe. Amen

    Just wondering why there hasn't been a bigger outcry against the Health Care Bill(s). We will all be on Medicaid/Medicare. Two programs that have been ripped off consistently over the years. Two programs that are administered by Blue Cross Blue Shield, a company that also insures a great many people in this country. They are paid by the government to administer the program and receive payments from the government. I wonder how much of our taxes have been tucked into their pockets. Is this fraud?

    Charleston held a Tea Party today. I was unable to attend but would love to hear if any of the local FReepers were there and what they heard from the speakers, etc. From what I heard on the news, it was considered a bipartisan event. Someone said that Jim DeMint was there, but have not been able to confirm. This is the second Tea Party held in Charleston.

    Years of Renewal | 1999 | Henry Kissinger
    Henry Kissinger's views of Gerald Ford from his book "Years of Renewal". "With Ford, what one saw was what one got. Providence smiled on Americans when - seemingly by happenstance - it brought forward a president who embodied our nation's deepest and simplest values." Kissinger's comparison betweem todays politicians and Ford leads one to believe that he believed that Ford was a leader in heroic mold. "The modern politician is less interested in being a hero than a superstar," he wrote. "Heroes walk alone; stars derive their status from approbation. Heroes are defined by inner values, stars by consensus. When...

    The break is at Turkey Creek. The 48 inch pipe is over the marsh and no ones knows how it happened. This comes at the time when we have The Cooper River Bridge Run, the Azalea Festival, the Cajun Festival, and a few other high profile events happening.

    For all of you guys and gals who like to read books about WWII or submarines, let me tell you about my cousin Steven M. Wilson. He has written two books, the first is the "Voyage of the Gray Wolves", the second book is "Between the Hunter and the Hunted". No, I haven't read them yet but am waiting for them to arrive. From what everyone has told me that has read them, they are really good.

    Well, it looks as though Dick Elliott and his cohorts are breaking the law and destroying other peoples property. Not nice Dick! When you are operating a political campaign on a shoe-string budget, those signs represent a large part of your budget and also the volunteers and your families time. Like Katherines son and daughter. Since the Democrats are trying to keep Katherines name and face out of the public eye by doing away with the signs, why don't we put it back in the public eye vocally and written? Even though she is endorsed by the Knight-Ritter newspaper in...

    Candidate for Senate seat has fresh outlook Sen. Dick Elliott, D-North Myrtle Beach, has represented northern Horry County and several Pee Dee counties in the Senate since the early 1990s and served in the S.C. House for several terms before that. This time around, he has a smart young opponent in Republican Katherine Jenerette, who shows the potential to become a good senator while bringing a fresh outlook to representing the district. She deserves the chance to develop that potential - not least because she shows greater interest than Elliott in working with the Horry County delegation on the issues,...

    An international march to recognize America's role in slavery -- where white people wear yokes and chains while black people escort them -- will arrive in Charleston on Tuesday, a day after the Columbus Day federal holiday. If the group's Annapolis, Md., march last week is the measuring stick, the event should be free of violence but mouths will drop open along the parade route. The Lifeline Expedition is meant to prod observers into talking, praying and thinking about slavery. Charleston, because of its gateway role in the slave trade, is among 10 cities the group is targeting for "slavery...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Call it the law of unintended consequences. A new national backup system meant to ensure that millions of eligible voters are not mistakenly turned away from the polls this year, as happened in 2000, could wind up causing Election Day problems as infamous as Florida's hanging chads. Congress required conditional, or provisional, voting as part of election fixes passed in 2002. For the first time, all states must offer a backup ballot to any voter whose name does not appear on the rolls when the voter comes to the polling place on Nov. 2. If the voter...

    In addition to the presidential election, North Myrtle Beach voters will decide at the polls Nov. 2 whether to keep incumbent state Sen. Dick Elliott in office or welcome newcomer Katherine Jenerette. Elliott, 67, has a long history in politics and government. Elliott, a Democrat, has been state senator since 1992 and served 10 years prior in the House. He also is the owner of Elliott Realty and a partner in ventures that developed Beachwood Golf Club and Eagle Nest Estates and Golf Club. For Jenerette, a Republican, campaigning is a new experience. This is the 36-year-old's first time running...

    Focus: Iraq Iraq's Oil Sector One Year After Liberation Terror's Big Prize The coordinated suicide attack on oil terminals off the coast of the southern Iraqi city of Basra is another sign that terrorists have singled out oil as their biggest prize. A crude threat An average of one to two sabotage attacks a week against Iraq's oil pipelines has crippled the country's oil industry, hindering its ability to export crude.

    Last week NewsMax linked for several days to journalist Annie Jacobsen's widely reported eyewitness account of suspicious behavior by Arab men on a flight from the Muslim haven of Detroit to L.A. But her report is just the beginning. "Flight crews and air marshals say Middle Eastern men are staking out airports, probing security measures and conducting test runs aboard airplanes for a terrorist attack," the Washington Times revealed today. Story Continues Below The article singles out the flight Jacobsen took on June 29, Northwest Airlines Flight 327, as well as American Airlines Flight 1732 from San Juan, Puerto Rico,...

    George Washington's vision is recorded at the Library of Congress Valley Forge, the winter of 1777, American forces were fighting against the British, the most powerful nation in the world. Many believe that only 3% of the American people took part in the struggle for independence, while "Tories" gave aid and comfort to the British cause. "This afternoon, as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female. So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed,...
