November 16, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

After more than a decade doggy paddling through the world of freelance photojournalism and a news filled year in South Carolina I've come to find myself working with some respected players in the national media.Following my dismissal at my bartending gig a year and a half ago for insubordination, I now find myself with freelance agreements with Getty Images, The New York Times, Times, The Associated Press and our local daily, The State Newspaper. As a result, the internet has become much more fun for me as I try to track down where my photos find homes.

I'll be meeting a freelance writer at Cool Beans in just a moment and we'll try to figure out this upcoming walkout from University of South Carolina students. Tune in next week to see where those photos find homes.

from The Independent Journal

“You have a lot of people who were told that if we got a majority in the House and a majority in the Senate, then life was gonna be great… What you’re seeing is that people are angry. Where’s the change? Why aren’t there bills on the president’s desk every day for him to veto? They’re saying, ‘Look, what you said would happen didn’t happen, so we’re going to go with anyone who hasn’t been elected.’ ”

from Breitbart

In an interview with Sean Hannity last night, Rubio explained that he was “trying to make a difference” by participating in the 2013 process with liberal Democratic Senators like Chuck Schumer to create the “most conservative bill possible” in a Democratic led Senate.

“What we underestimated is how much people distrust the federal government,” he said, pointing out that Americans demanded border security first before addressing the problem of illegal immigrants living in the country.
