While it is premature to point fingers at who is responsible for an alleged chemical attack in Syria, NATO allies, including France, Britain and Turkey and pushing for more US involvement in the two year old civil war. However, President Obama stated that he does not expect to have boots on the ground in the war torn country. The President said, "Sometimes what we've seen is that folks will call for immediate action, jumping into stuff that does not turn out well, gets us mired in very difficult situations, can result in us being drawn into very expensive, difficult, costly interventions that actually breed more resentment in the region. The United States continues to be the one country that people expect can do more than just simply protect their borders. But that does not mean that we have to get involved with everything immediately,".

City Council members in Columbia, South Carolina recently voted to criminalize the homeless. According to the city’s “Emergency Homeless Response” report, Columbia has become a “magnet for homeless people,” and that businesses and the area’s safety are suffering as a result, council members agreed on Aug. 14 to give people on the streets the option to either relocate, or get arrested.

The State is reporting that South Carolina’s electric cooperatives have stopped a solar energy forum that was supposed to let people explain how the state can improve rules governing sun power which are described as being the most unfriendly in the nation to customers.
