Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

This is hard. I'm into recycling. I planted trees on my little property I have. I wish more people would do it. I recycle in my neighborhood. I try and use a bag when I shop. But I use the plastic bags for my dogs poop. Also for my small garbage bin in the bathroom. It would be great to make the plastic bags out of recycled material. They do make recycled poop bags. But they are expensive:(

"How can you have a paper vs plastic comparison without considering the relative impact of paper and plastic mills?"
because our job here is to demonize plastic, not paper

No, that was the"save a tree" movement, probably a bit before your time Mat, one of the first environmental activist groups back in the 70s

"Who instituted the paper to plastic conversion in the first place?"

That'd be the plastic industry, not the environmentalist movement.

Re: “Mother Emanuel: One Year Later

For a really good discussion about the meaning of last year's attacks, check out Yale historian David Blight's panel discussion from last September: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1JgFbRFoF…. The panel includes sometime Charlestonian Ed Ball. For a video of Pinckney delivering his homily at the April 19th event that Waters and Blight both refer to, go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r1JgFbRFoF…. Simon Lewis

The Brooks Motel on Morris Street was another place where blacks could feel safe. Martin Luther King stayed there and it was an important meeting place for the Charleston civil rights movement.

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

The ACA is done in the private insurance market. Sex changes are not paid for by the government. Government funding for abortions is explicitly, statutorily illegal and has been for decades. So, yeah.

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

"A bill currently being considered by the S.C. House of Representatives would require providers to arrange for the burial or cremation of fetal tissue following an abortion, adding another series of regulations and forcing providers to locate a funeral home that will associate with a clinic."

So, would this apply to women that simply have a miscarriage as well? What about very early term abortions, where it might well be difficult to even pick out what to cremate?

Why not spend some time helping those that have already been born? You know, be pro-life instead of just pro-birth?

Re: “After passing 20-week abortion ban, S.C. lawmakers consider requiring fetal burial and cremation

All WJH is saying is that the bozos in Columbia who voted this in actually really dislike small and medium sized children tremendously. The could care less about their little lives once born and find then pretty annoying and bothersome. These are the same clowns who allow a nationally disgraced and shameful foster care program to operate here in the fine state of SC. The foster care for the small ones of SC is so piss poor that child welfare advocates filed a class action lawsuit in early 2016 against South Carolina in Federal Court. The Federal court agrees it sucks to be a kid here in SC's foster care program. Trikki Haley acknowledged how bad it was in 2015 and said shes working on it. 2016 and Guess what? Still working on it. You know, shes got Volvo and others to suck up to and no time for those pesky snot nosed toddlers. So once this bill is passed and more unwanted little ones come into the world we ask that they be dropped off on the doorsteps of every nitwit that supported this bill and they can then say they support the bill and the kids. Wonder how many foster children Trikki and her Columbia crew have in their homes? Soon they should all have 9 to 10 kids per year easily. I expect to see everyone including the Trikster herself, supporting extended foster families of 20 or more kids by the end of 2017. Y'all lawmakers taking the talk now its time to walk the walk. Personally, I think abortion should be allowed up to 21 years instead of 20 weeks and in the case of SC politicians 70 years.

wjhamilton: Have you ever heard of the term "flight of ideas"? I would imagine some time you thought your ideas would "matter". But trying to figure out what the hell you are saying is most difficult.

People are animals. Maybe one day, rocks will be as important as stones.
