Just another one of our little secrets

A colleague passes on this reader complaint, with the comment, "What planet does this person live on?":

I would like to know why we don't hear more from SC or Columbia's media about the Governor's inclination to refuse the stimulus monies when SC is in such desparate need. This state ranks about last economically,educationally, yet ranks high on crimes.  Shouldn't this money be extremely vital to SC… is the media bias… playing politics or what? 

Dang, and after all our efforts to keep the governor's position on this secret…

    This is not related but yesterday I saw the author Scott Turrow speak. He said: “I’m from Illinois, where the Governors make the license plates”

    Oh — but it IS related, Greg!
    We’ve got a pair of elected officials that NEED TO BE making the license plates they have previously only scripted. With cute little word poems…
    [Neither one is Governor Sanford — much as they’d like to be.]

    Tax and tax, spend and spend, elect and elect. Soon we can become another China.
    It’s good that almost nobody reads THESTATE or any McClatchy.

    Governments in SC are not in “deperate need” of money.
    The economy is much better now than it was under Jimmy Carter, or the first two years of Reagan, until Reagan passed income tax reform.
    Without any of this federal debt money, the state and local governments would have to spend at 2004 levels, which were full of lard then.
    The state could cut plenty of money from other useless programs to fund the unemployment system.

    There’s the answer for your colleague Brad – that reader lives on the same planet as Lee.

    Maybe it’s the opposite side of the same planet Sanford lives on. Your reader should find him there, and ask him about the stimulus himself.

    As usual, I post facts, and you sputter insults.
    I live on the world known as Reality, far, far away from your little Takes a Village.

    How Pressure in the Spine Affects Height
    Scientist all over the world have been pouring over some great material to discover the most effective ways to increase a person’s height, even if that person is already in his twenties, thirties or forties. Their years of investigation showed that too much pressure on the spinal discs can inhibit a person’s growth. The spinal discs are the bones that make up the backbone of a human body. Stress and pressure have a huge factor as to why a person stops growing. Hence, removing this pressure relieves the spinal discs and allows room for growth. Go to http://www.growth-flex.com/
    The pressure in the spinal column can be removed by attaining the right posture. People who stoop or stand irregularly builds a lot of pressure on their backs, their lower back specifically. Posture can be improved by several exercises. Yoga exercises are designed to focus energy and improve pressure; hence it is an effective method. Another proven way is by having a regular full body massage. Although a full back massage can help, it is still necessary that strained muscles and joints in the legs and arms be relieved.
    One good sport that can help improve posture is swimming. It involves several arm and leg strokes that stretch the whole body. Furthermore, when the whole body is submerged in water, the pressure on the spine is removed because the whole body is being carried by the water, so no direct force is needed from the back.
    Along with the removal of pressure in the spine, height can be enhanced by utilizing growth boosters that are available in the market. One example is Growth Flex V Pro System. Take a look at http://www.growth-flex.com/ .
