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.
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.
"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.
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.
Finally an article in this paper that isn't just basically the worst journalism ever produced!
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.
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.
Wow... Beautifully done! Glad we have resources in this town.
Outstanding Journalism. This is some of the best writing I have encountered in this paper.
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.
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.
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.
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.
wow we will miss you Ima
So, where are you heading, Ima?
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.
Actually, there are many cities in the south where the number of black and Hispanic city council members exceeds the number of white city council members. The same is true of local school boards and county boards of supervisors. Excessive minority representation on city councils does not necessarily mean there is good governance; the same is true of local school boards. Examples: Washington DC . . Baltimore . . Atlanta . . New Orleans . . Detroit . .
This is very interesting information. Is there any way you could publish the information for each of the largest cities? Thank you.
IMA OLDMAN FOR PRESIDENT
