Re: “Days before runoff, Sally Atwater accused of assaulting student

Atwater campaign spokesman Luke Byars called the lawsuit "baseless and frivolous" and "one of the lowest political hit jobs I have witnessed in 25 years of South Carolina politics."

I'd say that's fair given that Atwater's husband, the unchallenged master of slimy political hit jobs, passed about 25 years ago.

Re: “Days before runoff, Sally Atwater accused of assaulting student

Is BO a member/leader of the young democrats club of SC or is he a special needs student? I think he is a special needs student with no political preference. His preference would be to be treated with a certain amount of dignity. If this dipshit teacher really brought a pinata for kids to school and then told them they could not eat the candy, she sucks. I really cannot imagine the dumbass pinata logic as a fun time for kids with special needs (many of these students will also have dietary restrictions). Lets hear from the other students and hear their side of Pinatagate.

Re: “Ben Tillman was a racist, terrorist, and murderer: It's time to take down his statue

Yes, Tillman was a despicable racist but he did not spring from thin air. The Yankee Army murdered and pillaged during the war and after. The Klan and Redshirts were reactions to those atrocities. Just out of curiosity, Mr. Moreduck, if the Klan and Redshirts were terrorists, how do you peg the Mau-Mau and the PLO?

Re: “Days before runoff, Sally Atwater accused of assaulting student

Lowest political attack ever? Honey, this is South Carolina! Let's just say it is par for the course and let that reality soak in for a few minutes.

But remember to vote today, folks! One of the few times that a few ballots this way or the other can make a significant difference.

"Whether or not those students will be allowed to make statements is the real question."

Yes, I'd like to hear the students' frank assessments of BO.

Re: “Days before runoff, Sally Atwater accused of assaulting student

"This IS a very low trick by the democrats."

Assumptions. I guess you were there to know exactly what happened. This story should be easy to back up, if it actually did happen as claimed. After all, this was in front of multiple students. Whether or not those students will be allowed to make statements is the real question.

SC Republicans don't care. They will elect her anyway especially if they will elect a man that ran off with his mistress on the tax payers money while everyone is looking for him.

Re: “Days before runoff, Sally Atwater accused of assaulting student

Questions that arise:

1. Why does BO have both Ms. Atwater and the teacher's aide after him?

2. Is BO a discipline problem?

3. Do BO's parents exert any discipline at home?

4. Is this a case of parents sending their misfit off to school and expecting the school to let the misfit run amok?

You mean like the damage republicans continually try to do to our science standards?

Re: “Cops wearing cameras: Here’s what you need to know

Is it legal in SC for a citizen to video cops in action? If so, I'm OK with cops having video as long as the camera is always on.

Re: “Cops wearing cameras: Here’s what you need to know

NEED TO ALWAYS BE ON. This gives the officers the option of beating your ass and saying oops, cam wasn't on, no video of me tasing you and taking a baton and pepper spray to you while cuffed. Oh damn, you moved the wrong way, had to shoot him, he was going for a weapon...

Re: “Cops wearing cameras: Here’s what you need to know

As someone who has first-hand knowledge where a MPPD "remembered seeing" things in court that both didn't happen and he wasn't there to witness in the first place, I'll take the video record option for my protection.

Yes this will make evidence even more reliable against suspects, but, hey... you do have the right to not break the law or fight a LEO, too.

Re: “How a 19th-century Persian faith became the second-most common religion in our state

Whatever gives you a sense of purpose. Actually, I think the whiskeypalians are a far larger group, perhaps even number one in SC.

Heaven knows this is a breath of fresh air through the tidewater plains. "For all the great religious traditions were fundamentally initiated by God to reunite the mind with the Spirit and to bring the mind under the direction of the Spirit." (http://www.newmessage.org/wiki/Religion)

Re: “How a 19th-century Persian faith became the second-most common religion in our state

No surprise to anyone who's lived in coastal SC for the past 30 years - quite a few of the members of the Long Bay Symphony in Myrtle Beach in the 80s were Bahai, and there used to (maybe still is) a Bahai radio program/station that ran as late as the early 90s when I used to tune in when I had trouble sleeping- very soothing; better sleep-aid than a textbook...

My wife and I met in Dillon, SC in 1970. We were part of the first teaching push at that time. What an amazing time.

Really interesting! I had no idea it was so prevalent here; never would have guessed.
