CHRIS CORLEY, DOUG BRANNON DO BATTLE OVER REBEL-THEMED HOLIDAY MISSIVE …

S.C. Rep. Chris Corley continues to soak up the earned media in the aftermath of his controversial 2015 Christmas card – which accused “Republicans” who voted in favor of taking down the Confederate flag of betraying their constituents.

Having already enraged fiscally liberal S.C. Speaker of the House Jay Lucas, Corley’s next indignant reaction came courtesy of Upstate, S.C. “Republican” Doug Brannon – a Michigan native who has emerged as a central figure in some recent articles we’ve written related to judicial corruption.

Brannon apparently took none too kindly to Corley’s missive, and responded with a feisty letter telling him where he could put his Christmas card.  Take a look …

Corley’s response?

Well, first he edited his colleague’s letter …

Nice …

Finally, Corley sent Brannon another copy of the controversial card … this one autographed.

Yeah …

We don’t know how much Corley spent on these cards, but he’s getting some ridiculous mileage out of that investment.

The exchange comes as badly divided House “Republicans” are preparing to hold a caucus meeting this week to plot their strategy in advance of the next legislative session – which is scheduled to convene on January 12, 2016.  It also comes as Corley presses for passage of a non-binding referendum allowing voters to have a say on the flag.

Sadly, half a century later, Dr. King’s dream remains an aspiration to be fulfilled. Too many black Americans and their allies(YOU) on the Left are still relying on the “color of their skin,” scapegoating anyone who judges “the content of their character” with the noxious label of “racist.”

As far as I know, Brannon’s family has been living in the Landrum area for years. His family used to run one fine restaurant just inside the SC state line on SC 14 outside of Landrum. For some unknown reason it was called “Brannon’s”….
Lots of golfer’s used to frequent the place (killer breakfasts!!!!). It was hard to get a table on the weekends for breakfast. I used to take my family there when the kids were young.

Hare & Hound’s a good place – especially if the weather is nice and you can sit out on the patio. Try the home made chicken salad croissant some time…
Burgers ain’t bad either but the Southside BBQ & Grill’s burger w/fresh cut fries is better and the “Que” is pretty damn good.
Southside is down the road a mile or two on US 176 towards “Campbeller”. It’s on the right, you can’t miss it.
Obviously, they’ve got beer & spirits…………

Brannon is my local representative and I’ve met him. He’s a hard working guy and represents the attitudes of the people of NW Spartanburg county who voted him into office.
Brannon’s head and shoulders over the guy he replaced (Joey Millwood – a dead ringer for the old Shoney’s “Big Boy”)
Millwood is worthless slug whose only callouses is from sitting on his chubby ass and diddling with his smart phone – I saw the worthless POS doing just that during his last session of the Spartanburg County Legislative delegation before Brannon was sworn in. Millwood had absolutely no interest in the people of NW Spartanburg County and only cared about “Queen Namrata” throwing perks towards his lazy ass.

In furtherance:

It is spelled “State Capital Capitol grounds”, not “Sate Capital grounds.” Spelling is, after all, very important.

Corley is not as smart as he thinks he is. [missed vicupstate’s post earlier]

The feud between the two politicians had been going on for years, but finally one day his opponent’s bullying, thieving tactics caused the politician to blow his stack. He vented his spleen in a venomous letter, but when his seasoned secretary brought it in for his signature, she ventured the opinion that it was a bit strong. So he cut a few of the most offensive bits, but the secretary still felt it should be toned down.

“All right,” he grumbled as he struck out a few more choice phrases, “But at this rate that schmuck’s likely to miss the point entirely.”

Finally, the secretary brought in the third version for his approval. “I suppose this’ll have to do,” said the politician grudgingly, “but you’ve made a couple of typing errors. There’s no ‘C’ in extortion, subpoena has an ‘O’ in it, and his wife’s name is Beth – not Bitch.”

Wouldn’t count on that 70% of America is still white.Democrats are the minority in the senate,house,state legislatures,governorships etc…

Democrats try and use the courts to rule against the will of the people and occasionally are able to find a ‘closet’ liberal like Nikki Haley to move forward their radical agenda.

In this case Farakkkahn told us what those on the left want-take the American Flag down.
