Crosswalk rule lowered Rock Hill's standards

Why in the world does Rock Hill just keep going deeper and deeper in degradation? The most recent happening is the establishment of the crosswalks to make it possible for a downtown business to obtain a liquor license. The 300-foot law was put on the books for a reason, and finding a way to get around this law is not in the community's best interest. The buildings are still the same distance apart, and creating new crosswalks does not change the purpose behind this laws.

Rock Hill was once a city to be proud of, but doing things such as this will surely lower her standard greatly. This was just about the most idiotic thing I have ever heard of. I guess that you can get around anything, including the law.

Something wrong in America

I love America, but I do not love what she has become. This country was founded upon the King James version of the Bible. Now we have forsaken everything about the holy Bible. Something is wrong with America when our leaders in Congress put down our own brave men and women that serve in the military. Something is wrong with America when our government can pass out contraceptives to children in school without parental consent, but the Gideons can no longer pass out Bibles on campus.

Something is wrong with America when the wild, gun-carrying teenager is allowed to stay in school, but God is expelled from the classroom. Something is wrong when our leaders say premarital sex is all right just as long as it is safe. Something is wrong with America when we get ready to put a man or woman in office who will destroy America by supporting abortion, gay marriage and any other immoral act.

It's time to wake up, America, before its way to late. The only way America will get back to its Godly ways is for Christian men and women to come out from hiding and start telling the government enough is enough, and tell the world that the only way to heaven is by the blood of Jesus Christ.
