The comments, at least, concern human rights; a fitting subject for freethinkers.  --Dan

     When you get a chance you should check out the link.  It's a short article.  They're actually thinking of passing a criminal law that would put federal officials in jail for up to five years if they try to enforce Obamacare.  The penalty for state officials would be two years.  I think Uncle Sam would have something to say about that.
     South Carolina is a state I "love to hate," to put it a bit strongly.  Probably about fifteen years ago a Cove resident by the name of "Judy" paid "Sheryl" and me a visit.  Although we didn't really know her she seemed like a good woman.  She wanted us to testify to her good character and to the moral atmosphere at the Cove, especially since "Sheryl" was, and is, clergy.  The police came into the Cove one day when "Judy" was not around (other adults were) and took her daughter away.  I believe she was eight to ten years old at the time.  Their purpose was to deliver the child to "Judy's" former husband, a resident of South Carolina, who testified that his former wife was bringing up their child in an immoral atmosphere (because of public nudity at Cypress Cove, an international nudist resort which also has permanent residents).
       "Judy" went to a hearing armed with our statement about the Cove and her character. I believe there were statements from other Cove residents.  She lost and the former husband got custody.  South Carolina regarded (and probably still does) nudity in a public place as always immoral.  Although there's no such law in Florida the states usually reciprocally enforce each other's laws in interstate jurisprudence. The poor girl absolutely loved life at the Cove with her mother.
     Here's the stunning conclusion to this story: Several years later "Judy's" former husband was found cheating on his new wife.  "Judy" once more sought custody of her child.  I'm almost positive it was in a South Carolina court.  The judge said he would give her custody, but only if she acknowledged that she was wrong.  "Judy" said something like: "I most certainly will not admit that I was wrong!  I was right!"  The judge gave her custody of her daughter anyway, but only on the condition that she would not allow her to go to the Cove until she was legally an adult.  This "Judy" accepted.  How very sad.  --Dan

They ARE a Republican state---they're shooting themselves in the foot to save their "hand."  They're one of the poorest states--they NEED Obamacare! --MS & Arkansas, I think, are only ones worse off.  S. C. VERY fundamentally religious.  Hence Republican liars.  --Norma  (didn't have time to click on link. . . I can imagine. . . that will have to do for now.  Too busy otherwise.
