Re: “Transgender students face challenges from Columbia and in the classroom

Luke, and family, read Bright's stupid law carefully. There are exemption clauses to protect a mother so she can take her son into the women's rooms and fathers can take their daughters into the men's room. (It's written as for legal guardians.) The kicker is the exemption is good for them UNDER 17 YEARS OLD! What's needed is to flood every public bathroom with opposite sex teens under 17 to make it look really stupid, which it already is. So, in your case, you can follow your male guardian into the men's room until you're 17 when noone will care any more....(c;]

Best of luck to you and Mom. Sorry the school outed you in such a careless manner. They're not the brightest bulbs in the box.

Re: “The fight over medical marijuana hits home

It should be noted that the medicine that Mary Louise needs (CBD) is 100% non-psychoactive.

---

Even if the state were to severely relax the laws, the psychoactive element in cannabis (THC) is 100% less dangerous than ethanol.

Decades from now, people will look back on these laws and see how ridiculous they are.

Re: “The fight over medical marijuana hits home

Its a crying shame that the political powers that be here in our fine state cannot get their shit together and do something for the thousands who would benefit from medical marijuana use. Instead, politicians like Dimwit Bright are on penis patrol. What the hell is wrong with Mike Fair and Harvey Peeler? What haters. There is no rational argument against allowing the use of medical marijuana products to this child and others like her. All of the sum bitches who voted against it should be forced to go to this poor childs house and tell her why to her face. They say sorry and I say they suck.

Doesn't this qualify as "possession and sale of drug paraphernalia"?

Re: “Transgender students face challenges from Columbia and in the classroom

Luke is an amazing young man and Amy is to be commended for her supporting him. Read what I just wrote again. Here is a mother who is doing what any parent should do, supporting their child, and it merits comment. All to often the transgender child is punished for expressing who they are and thrown out of the house. Without parental support between 41 and 65% of trans youth attempt suicide. With support that figure drops to just under 5%. In the places where transgender youth are allowed to use the restroom of their gender there have been zero incidents. ZERO.

Re: “As marijuana becomes legalized, ganja-preneurs are growing their products

Doreen - Brilliant!! Not only for the Moms, this Dad loves the decanter one. A perfect Fathers Day gift. My goal in life as I've told you before, a shop along King Street called Kannabis on King or the Little Old Texas Tea Shop. I hold stock in several cannabis related firms including CBIS and PHOT. So far they have continued to rise and they have outperformed my expectations. Doreen is a very smart cookie.

Re: “The return of Charleston's radio DJs

I remember cruisin' in the 1950s to the Patio and the DJ up above in the booth. Back then you could get a driver's license at 14 ...
and beer was served at drive-ins. Yikes!

Re: “CofC students launch #BeingBlackAtCofC campaign to discuss diversity on campus

We need more race-based preferential policies so that America can become a nation where we will not be judged by the color of our skin but by the content of our character.

Re: “The return of Charleston's radio DJs

Boobie Nash, now there was a real "D.J." that was on WTMA. He also did remotes from atop the then Patio Drive-In Restaurant located on & between Calhoun & Spring Streets.Those were the real days of cruising around & around the restaurant & showing off your car & girlfriend. He also married me & my beautiful bride 20 yrs. ago this month(April 12th) out on our deck overlooking Folly Creek.

With all due respect, Goles needs a refresher course in grammar or basic English or maybe "BOTH".

Re: “The return of Charleston's radio DJs

I have thousands of music tracks on my computer, and on USB flash drives.
All music, all of the time, no commercials or babbling DJs.

Re: “Atlantic Beach once thrived as S.C.'s only black-friendly beach, now home to dreaded Black Bike Week

We have been thinking of buying a lot in Atlantic beach. We are white but respect all races. On bike week we can visit relatives up north. I hated to read all this about the area. We live near the Michael brown shooting. And we know that Witness was lying. Someone took video of the whole event. The video showed Michael brown lunging into the police cruiser, after the officer, it also showed Michael grabbing the officer. Outside the cruiser. A black witness who testified for the officer to the grand jury, was later found shot and burned in his car. The news blew this all out of proportion. The news never told the facts, that most of the black people rioting were not even from the neighborhood, but we're brought in to incite the rioters. I felt sorry for Michael and is family. But Michael was a bully and had just robbed a local store, Michael had done this before at the same store, but the store owner let it go. This time Michael ruffled up the store owner a little, and the owner called the police. Officer Wilson heard this on his radio as he was telling Michael to get out of the street. Michael then lunged into the officers car. When an officer of the law tells you to do something, you do it. He is the law. Some whites and blacks don't seem to understand this. Yes I feel it was overkill, but the officer was just manhandled, by a young man. The officer was afraid and protected himself. Michael at no time had his hands up, the buddy of Michael's lied. Michael laid on the road for 4 hours because the crowds wouldn't allow the ambulance through to get michael. I hope this will clear up some of the things people believed and the media got all wrong on that sad day.

Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

I have the vinegar-dish soap in a dish in every room in my house. It hasn't caught a single no-see-um, and I continue to be bitten. There has to be a better solution.
