I've been a part of this morning show in one way or another since 1997.     My role has changed from time to time, but one thing that's remained consistant is my views on issues.     Of course, views change and evolve as more information comes in...and you CAN change your mind on something without being a flip-flopper.     Strom Thurmond used to be a rapid segragationalist before he changed his mind.   Of course, he had a child with a black woman at the time...talk about separate but equal.    President Obama told everyone for years that he was for 'traditional' marriage and against same-sex marriage.     A few years later, when the polls said it was okay, he's now firmly behind it.     

I've always been very socially liberal and not ashamed of it.     Through the years, listeners would call in and chide me by saying, '...just wait, as you grow older, you'll come around."       Well, I've lived way more than half of my life and I haven't come around yet.    I'm still waiting.    I still believe in the same things I did as a 20 or 30 year old.   As a matter of fact, I think I'm even more staunch in my beliefs.     When you work at a station all day that leans so heavily in the opposite direction that I lean, you can't help but push back...it's human nature.       I don't mind listening to logical arguements about anything, but I don't hear logic.   All I normally hear is fear-mongering.     Fear is a great motivator.     It keeps people in line.    It gets people to think like you.   It gets people to hate the other side becaue they're trying to destroy your way of life.     Or so you're told.      Fear also keeps you from hearing the arguement from the other side.      I'm afraid.    I'm afraid that the divide between the right and left is continuing to get larger and larger and more divisive every day...with every issue.      I'm afraid that politicians will continue to fight for whatever will keep them in office, rather than what's good for the country as a whole.      I'm afraid that the US won't be a better place for our grand-children, but not because of political actions, but rather because of polticial IN-action.     Nothing gets done.   Neither side budges.

Polls say less than 10 percent of us think that Congress if doing a good job.   Yet a large portion of the country says they want the government to stay out of their lives and not govern so much.     If you're one of those, you must be thrilled with the job they've been doing lately.

    This Memorial Day has been quite memorable for Americans... And not for the right reasons. Locally, The Atlantic Beach Bike Week has been overshadowed with shooting deaths and injured victims for two nights in a row. Three people dead. Many fighting for their lives. 

    I considered going out late Friday night to see what this bike week was all about so I can talk about it on Tuesday morning's show but someone talked me out of it. The next morning, I was so glad I didn't go.... Only to wake up this morning to hear about more violence. It seemed like Myrtle Beach was under siege. I feel terrible for the unsuspecting families that came to the family beach only to be hunkered down in their hotel rooms. One family tried to get a refund when they decided to move hotels but they were denied. 

    Why did this happen? 

    Too afraid to enforce laws out of fear of backlash from the NAACP?

    Too afraid to lose tourism funds?

    Too chicken to impose a curfew?

    Too cheap to hire seasonal police force to bolster security during the swell of tourism traffic?

    Too afraid to be labeled a racist to comment on any aspect of this bike rally?

    These were all the reasons I read from citizens all around social media. 

    But are those the right questions?

    What politicians do you want to hear from? What questions do you want answered? What do you think should be done? Can this topic be discussed without racial overtones? Is this more about some young people with no morals.... Just like spring break violence, rape and drunkeness... Which involved many young, white people. 

    I heard that spring break revelers were run out of town... So were the Harley bikers. I thought Myrtle Beach was not in the bike rally business anymore? What happened?

    Is this the worst bike rally ever? Was it unusual or was it expected? 

    Some people posted pictures this weekend of half-naked black women twerking around the streets but there are half-naked white women and profession strippers doing similar things during the Harley bike rally. I know. I saw it. They do it to win contests or for tips. So that's not a race thing. 

    We have experienced plenty of violence in this area... Sometimes resulting in death by gun, knife, hammer, etc. I know. I write up the news every morning. Some of the perps are black, some are white. Some of the victims are white, some are black... Some men, some women. So, that doesn't seem like a race thing either. 

    There are women and some men victims of domestic violence during these events.... But that happens all year long, all over the state, black, white... Whatever. South Carolina didn't end up with the #1 ranking in the nation for deaths of women by men due to one race. 

    This is a systemic problem not because of race but because of the lack of moral LEARNING! I would say teaching but there's no lack of teaching. There are plenty of religious establishments on every corner. 

    Where does moral learning begin? In the home. It is a family's responsibility to raise productive, moral people.... Not the school's .... not the government's .... Not the police's ... Not the court's responsibility. 

    Every person on this planet has parents however, there's certainly a lack of parenting on this earth. 

    There are too many parents and kids that don't have God in their lives. It's the lack of God in their lives that allows people to wander down a road of sin, depression, negative attitude ...despair and finally violence. 

    I know God is the answer but people would rather condemn a race, a mayor and a police chief, instead. If you do, you are sooooo misguided. There should be a peace movement in Myrtle Beach today. 

    Instead of hunkering down, we should come out of hiding and take over myrtle beach in our Sunday Best to claim back Memorial Day for the reason it was created... To honor those who laid down their lives and limbs for the rest of us during times of war!!!!! But, no, we are having our own street wars... Gang violence... Drug wars.... Pimp wars....

    This is my first Memorial Day here. I spent 2 hours on Friday with the parade's grand marshal, Montel Williams. I was horrified and embarrassed for our community to see him come down ocean blvd to a single sporadic row of citizens!!! I thought y'all loved your veterans and your community? What a joke. It was shameful. And the parade itself? Pitiful at best. What a poor turnout in floats and spectators. Why even bother?

    Oh yeah. I'm outraged that many ignorant people have taken to social media to divide this community with racial slurs and finger pointing. Where is God at work in your life????

    Remember, for every finger you point, there are three pointed back at you! 

    Look in the mirror. Change starts with you.

    It has come to my attention that my post may have offended some event and city planners. However my intentions were quite the opposite… I championed the efforts by city and local event planners to create such a wonderful event for our veterans and citizens. I was saddened to see the low turnout. It showed a lack of community support. Was it because the bike rally was in town? If so, why would citizens handover their city to the rally revelers? Peaceful citizens should come in droves to reclaim their city for this special weekend. The parade should be the center stage and our veterans the stars!
