Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

Gotta love the "both sides are bad" trope. Sure. Totally. One side has for its leader a person who laughs about sexual assaults, incites violence, makes fun of mentally handicapped people and has worked to alienate pretty much every demographic except white men. The other side has rational, experienced, calm person who did some shady things with e-mails - an act that has existed in politics since e-mail has existed. It's a real tough choice.

If you vote for the former, you must really be a self-loather, and you have no desire to see the women in your life, or your children, or anyone else around you who is different from you prosper even though you claim to love the freedom of opportunity that America allegedly has.

Real tough choice.

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

Our Youth are deceived : by the tenured perpetual students (their Utopian professors) who are responsible for this nations penal sentence to FAIL AS EVERY OTHER SOCIALIST COUNTRY HAS THROUGHOUT HISTORY.

If y'all Utopian professors could get a real job you would have. However, same Federal Sharia Law proponents (ie CLINTON, HUMA WEINER, and the host of random and sundry political CRIMINALS HOLDING WE THE PEOPLE HOSTAGE via OFFERING FREE GIFTS TO NON WORKING SLACKERS AND CLUELESS kids at the expense OF TRULY CONCERNED AND STUDIED PATRIOTS), perpetuate SLAVERY IN THESE CRIMINAL STATES OF AMERIKA AND excel at DECEIVING OUR YOUTH!

Your day is coming you political criminals. Karma rox!

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

GOP spin created "crooked" Hillary. Email speculation is exactly the underhanded tactic Comey is undertaking, knowing that HRC's name can't be cleared by election day, fostering doubt, of which I have none. Trump's BAD for America and already has incited anger and violence, just like what happened in a bygone despot era:

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

Artrogue is right. I despise both candidates - a silly oompa loompa (Trump) and a closet Republican (Clinton). I can not believe that these two are the cream of the political crop in the USA. I voted for Bernie. Cid95 is also right, the election hoopla reached a daily torturous loop on CNN months ago.

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

We should do our entire presidential election process - primaries to general election - in three months. The current never-ending circus (when did it all start? 2014?) is a national disgrace and international embarrassment.

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

"You must choose, not on the basis of promises, but on the basis of performance." That is a laugh.
What has Mrs Clinton really done except show her true colors as a crook??

IF your a milennial.. STILL cast your vote for Bernie !!
That way You can still hold your head up high that you pulled for a true american.. whatever his political leanings at least he is a stand up guy and not a crook.

The seriousness of the latest email investigations into both the Clinton emails
and even worse now ...the Whole Clinton Foundation pay for play. The FBI is truly on the trail of some serious financial shenanigans which is not going away even after election day.

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

Since 1993 Rep. Jim Clyburn has represented South Carolina's sixth congressional district and not a single damn improvement in the situations he was first elected to take care of. Shameful.

More than a time for a change.
Dont fall for the hype, if he gets reelected, just more of the same as always.

Re: “Dope Sick in the Holy City

I had no idea that we had such a problem here. I have taken pain meds for years due to back and neck issues. My husband would take my pills. I think he had even started taking them and putting something else in the bottle for me to take. Then I found the cut up straws, little baggies. I could no longer have him in my home with my child. I had slipped in to clinical depression do to the deaths of my parents and husband that I could not trust. I was taking 3 of the 7.5 mil of Hydrocodone for about 10 years. Thank God my eldest daughter moved me to TN. There they got me on other meds that work for the pain and brought me out of the Hydrocodone fog. I thank God again do not have the addictive trait.
Thank you all for all the information and work you are doing. I wish my husband would have worked with me to get him help.

Re: “Dope Sick in the Holy City

This is one of the best articles that I've read in awhile! It's diffently a cry for help in this city. Charleston is to blind these days of the ugly truth that lives here.

Re: “Matthew makes local landfall, but Charleston weathers the storm

How is the 2 day evacuation figure for Matthew calculated? It arrived in the Charleston area on Saturday morning but the I26 lane reversal was 3pm on Wed.
Some people left even earlier, it was a 6+ hour drive to Columbia on Tuesday night (I'm reliably informed).

Hugo is definitely the standard to measure against for the past half-century. David in 1979 was a Cat 5 in the Caribbean but nothing by the time it reached Charleston.

Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

Two more years have passed since this article was written, and global sea levels have changed less than half the thickness of your fingernail. So much for scientific predicton. It was a hoax.

Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

Hi everybody
My suggestion is that you all move to the safe state of Ohio. Although give them time and they will be saying Ohio will soon have monsoons.

Oh' I fogot we do have killer tornados. I am 65 and I did see one once but it really didn't come close enough to scare. We did recieve a few high winds here in Columbus and lost a few hundred trees but that just help our jobless rate for a day. Untill all the local government's promised to remove all trees for free.

Flee to the heart of it all state. Where nothing is imposdible with God our state motto which I do believe although I have found thst he decides when and where miricles happen. We can only ask and hope but God is still the boss. Wether you like it or not.

Re: “What's next at North Charleston's Garco site

A couple items. I grew up on Walker St. In the late 50s and early 60s. I believe an entrance to the apartments is crazy. I would think the city planners would not approve it. What did y'all do with all the Asbestos that's buried in the ground behind the plant back toward Dewy Hill. How are you going to get ride of the asbestos in the building. Please don't try telling me there was no asbestos buried on that property because I know better.

Re: “How well do South Carolina city councils reflect their local populations?

I have said that if Trump is elected I would leave the country - not because I fear his Presidency, he would be ineffective, but because I don't want to live in a country where more than half the voters would want him.

Thanks for the support, bigdeal, but I wouldn't want to represent anyone that would want to elect me.
