Obama's promises not convincing
For a month, I've read the opinion page and seen that people called me ignorant because I don't like President-elect Obama. I've also been called racist for my dislike. Unlike some people in Rock Hill, I'm not going to join in a 2-year old's game of name calling. Let's set the record straight. If you went to whitehouse.gov, you could see everything a senator has voted for and against when it came to the floor. Barack Obama says that he's going to lower taxes when he has a record of voting for higher taxes. He says that he's going to pull the troops out of Iraq and Afghanistan, then insinuates in a press conference that he's going to attack Iran. He wants to end one war then start another. Yeah, he is a man of character and class.
He's a Democrat who supports abortion. He wants to use Medicare to fund abortions. Obama has a very convincing campaign, but it doesn't change the fact that he's friends with a terrorist and wants to end one war to start another. A war, by the way, that he voted to fund. Don't forget that part.
President Roosevelt said that Dec. 7, 1941, was a day that will live in infamy. He sent men to fight in World War II. Sept. 11, 2001, was our day of infamy, and dubbed worse than Pearl Harbor. President Bush sent the men to fight terrorists. Men and women we need to support as they fight for our freedom. As for Obama's ability to lead us out of trouble, we will know in four years if we made the right choice.

Dig deeper into misuse of funds
Regarding the Indian Land investigation that ended with no charges filed against the former employees who misused government funds, I suggest that Solicitor Douglas Barfield visit the cafeteria at Indian Land Elementary during his lunch break and observe the chaos the teachers and students endure due to overcrowded conditions. For such an affluent area, I am shocked that the education of children means so little to the officials and that no funds are made available for this purpose. Of course, children can't vote.
I commend Ms. McClennen for her courage, concern and persistence in reporting this incident. Since these employees received compensation not due them and funds were misused and no one has been held accountable, parents and children of the Indian Land school system deserve to know what other funds have been mishandled.
Seniors grateful for party at Armory
The seniors who attended the Santa For Seniors party recently held at the Armory would like to thank local motorcyclists who work so hard to make this event a joy. The Star Sisters did a wonderful job putting the finishing touches on making sure everyone felt special and had a good time. Even though the weather did not cooperate.
Thank you, guys and girls, for remembering the seniors. We appreciate all the efforts.
