A sorry history indeed. But voters here continue to be suckers for it. As mountains of money pile up in Superpacs and third party groups, we're going to see more and better funded smear campaigns that candidates will claim thery're not connected with. I just hold whatever candidates that benefit responsible and assume their friends are doing their dirty work for them.
"Moredock: hater of all things white, male, and Southern."
God forbid someone take an honest look at the South and bring to light hard truths that have to be faced if this region ever has a shot at not being the laughing stock of the rest of the country and world. The persecution complex white males from the South employ, and their petulant regressive behavior - lashing out like wounded animals when things don't go their way - is something that needs to be consistently examined and exposed.
I don't think Will Moredock hates white male Southerners, even though there are centuries of actions that could justify such hate. And when he criticizes establishment behaviors, it is not out of some psychological self-loathing. It is because white male Southerners constantly give example after unabashed example of behaviors worthy of scorn. Don't blame Moredock. Blame the source material.
What are you so upset about Jaxx?
This shit's been going on since this country was founded, and it certainly isn't confined to SC.
Moredock: hater of all things white, male, and Southern. Poor guy. I don't know how he lives with himself.
Ms. Deerin has made her place in the community among the LGBT's, She resigns herself to that group that God has condemned , so why do you scream so ?
"I like Ginny Deerin and many of her ideas, but I prefer that our next mayor is one that did not move into the Charleston city limits within the last year, just to be eligible for the office."
But we're all OK with hiring city staff after national searches, right?
I like Ginny Deerin and many of her ideas, but I prefer that our next mayor is one that did not move into the Charleston city limits within the last year, just to be eligible for the office.
She has also done her homework on most of the critical issues facing the city. In an interview last week, she was measured and vague...
She wants to put "everything on the table" with the cruise industry, including discussions...
"I can tell you, as mayor I'm not going to allow..."
Will, are you sure this is an endorsement?
'and the biggest "social justice" proponent in the race.'
Yeah! Social Justice! What a horrifying concept!
She should stick to helping kids.
I do not know Ginny Deerin, but the fact that Will Moredock endorses her tells me she is anti-white, anti-male-, anti-profit, anti-American and the biggest "social justice" proponent in the race. Thank you, Mr. Moredock, for telling me who not to vote for.
Find out what Clarendon County did to get rid of the Beach Company.
They came in with great fanfare within the last 10 years or so with plans to develop a community on the shores of Lake Marion in the Summerton/Santee area.
Nothing happened and nothing happened and finally it appeared in the weekly paper that they had expected Clarendon County to provide way more infrastructure freebies than the county could afford.
So, maybe Charleston, city or county, just needs to turn off the 'incentives' tap.
Glad to see someone realizes the link between overpopulation and overdevelopment. I find it annoying when people tell me they are against abortion, birth control AND development.
How to stop overpopulation in the USA?
1. No more immigration, none.
2. No more tax breaks for children, at least after the second.
Speaking of Green Diamond -- check out Congaree Riverkeeper website for amazing aerial shots of this week's flooding and those same 4500 acres of Green Diamond underwater. The floodplain remains farmland, not a retirement village etc. as was proposed by the developers.
A pretty good counterpoint, Slayer. But only a stopgap until the monster of overpopulation is held at bay.
Eliminate the height limits altogether, pack them in as tight as they will go, and quit destroying the outlying islands.
Which mayoral candidate stands against the Beach Company most strongly?
An interesting tidbit about B&C, from our very own City Paper in 2008:
"Burrough & Chapin raided objections to the 1998 Gay and Lesbian Pride Festival planned in Myrtle Beach. The company refused to allow the Village People to play at its Broadway at the Beach development. It also tried to keep other venues like the All Star Café from hosting Pride events, Snell says.
"Burroughs & Chapin raised holy hell," he says.
The company ran advertisements in Myrtle Beach's Sun News to defend its decision: "Our company abides by the laws governing fair and equal treatment of all individuals. However, as a private company, we have not been, nor do we intend to be, forced or intimidated into supporting organized activities that we believe endanger the historic values of our nation and the cornerstone truths on which they are based."
In the wake of this, the company also felt it appropriate to change its slogan, which had remained unchanged for over 100 years, from "Boldly Shaping the Future with Pride" to "Burroughs & Chapin — Family Values Since 1895." The company's former president and Chief Executive Officer Doug Wendel said in a 1998 Sun News article that the company needed a new slogan because "some people started using the word 'pride' a whole lot in our community."
Burroughs & Chapin tried to argue that homosexuality conflicts with its family values stance. "The lifestyle they [homosexuals] choose is not in keeping with what Burroughs & Chapin stands for," said company spokeswoman Nancy Reynolds in the same article."
Here is the link to the article: http://www.charlestoncitypaper.com/charles…
Burroughs & Chapin mention several times in the article that they are a private company. The implication being they can do whatever they want. If that is the case, then why do they rely on millions of dollars in taxpayer-subsidized welfare?
This is the hypocrisy of the "free" market at its finest folks. And corporations like the Beach Company and their slug-brained sycophants like Dwayne Green want free reign to do to Charleston what B & C did to Myrtle Beach. And if there was ever a reason to advocate against unfettered development and good ole boy cronyism, it's Myrtle Beach.
Scrap the plans, redo the inside and make it all section 8 housing.
Charleston is a low city. there should not be any tall buildings below the crosstown and then only on the Morrison drive corridor. the Beach Co. does not have a clue on how to act properly. Oddly though, I liked their first proposal more than the current one. Take the first proposal, scale it down and add more parking. That side of town actually needs a grocery store. People freaked out when they heard 24hr grocery store. it would probably be a good thing.
