FEEDBACK:  Carr’s commentary describes Comey’s actions well

David Sweatt, Greenville: “[Former FBI Director James] Comey’s disclosure was premeditated and executed in spite of his very specific and detailed knowledge of the U.S. Constitution and executive privilege. Judge [Robert] Carr describes the events directly and clearly.”

McMaster

FEEDBACK:  McMaster’s leadership encouraging; Solar legislation might hurt

Dale M. Rhodes: “I believe many readers of Statehouse Report will be aware of the importance of the State Fiscal Accountability Authority in reviewing and approving the authorization and expenditure of certain state funds. Those who have had the opportunity to view the authority’s webcasts may also appreciate the technically complex nature of the transactions under review in that forum, and the concomitant need for detailed preparation and strictly attentive participation by the members.”

Will Williams: “I enjoy your writings and musings. I don’t always agree with them, but what a boring world we would have if everyone agreed on everything. Your column about the environment from the Friday edition is good, but I do disagree with you on solar panel legislation that was proposed.”

“Simply substitute the word “Columbia” for “D.C.” and “state officials” for “federal officials” and see what the legislature’s track record is. It is obvious that while not true for all members, there is a majority legislative opinion that Home Rule is nothing but two four-letter dirty words.”

FEEDBACK:  My three cents on guns

FEEDBACK: My three cents on guns

George Graf: I am not a pro- or anti-gun guy. My issue is the continual felons who are arrested and one of their charges always seems to be the possession of a firearm.

I would like to see a mammoth penalty for those who have made the firearm available to the felon. Seems many girlfriends and family members are the providers. If they get harsh penalties, maybe they will cease the practice coupled with anonymous protection.

FEEDBACK: Consultant class needs to do more consulting, not conning

William Heitsman, Darlington: “From your recent article it would appear that our consultant class needs to do more consulting and less conning. But that has been going on since the media in all its forms have taken over the political system.”
