Re: “Letter: Carriage horses can take the heat

Humans have a choice in the kind of work they choose and a horse doesn't. How about those carriage owners invest in more human powered transpiration methods to haul the fat ass tourist around. I bring my family to Charleston every year for vacation, and am disgusted when I see those poor horses pulling people around in the heat. They look miserable and I don't think they look healthy. I have always refused to partake in a carriage ride and have taught my son that it is cruelty.

You folks that don't have empathy for animals will pay the ultimate price some day. Karma is real.
I love Charleston and think it is an awesome place to visit. But every year I dread having to see those poor horses. It makes me sick. I avoid the downtown area on our trips and would spend more time walking around down there if the horses went away.

I am a tourist. I don't like the carragies. I don't think I'm in the minority. We have evolved too much to let this cruelty play out on our American streets.

Re: “Rocky D going back on the air for Primary Eve

Why does the jew love blacks and queers so much? I think part of the reason is because so many jews are themselves queer, hence they feel a natural solidarity with their fellow sodomites and pedophiles.

And did you ever notice how much the jew whines about Hitler's alleged excesses? Give it a rest you scared, timid money worshipers!

Although Charleston has come a long way in the last 5-8 years, where is Asheville and Richmond ? Those towns have been crazy as hell before Facebook was invented...

Re: “Should restaurant managers be required to take alcohol server training?

ServeSafe and TIPS are both great programs, and I honestly believe that people who go through that training are better prepared for bar tending/serving. Doesn't mean they will give a crap, or pay attention, but at least they have the chance to really understand the issues, liabilities, and responsibilities they have. If your restaurant doesn't send you to one of these classes, it is doing you a disservice. I am on the fence about it being mandatory, though. Having been through the classes, I think everyone should attend. But if you make it mandatory, who pays? The government since they mandate it? The employer who may, as the article said, only have the employee for a short time?
I feel that restaurants who do take the extra time and money to properly train their employees develop a culture of retention, and it pays off in the long run. Then again I am rambling on so I don't have to ACTUALLY do work, so I may be wrong.

Re: “Should restaurant managers be required to take alcohol server training?

Okay, IP Yuengling... you're right. It is completely unreasonable that any professional have any level of standardized training. Hell, if they weren't our country's last defense against hordes of dead Democrats voting en masse in our fraudulent elections, I'd say drivers' licenses were also just fluff as well.

Re: “Should restaurant managers be required to take alcohol server training?

How about mandatory parenting classes for expectant mothers?

Considering the number of dead children this state has fished out of sunken cars in the past few decades, it couldn't hurt.

Re: “Should restaurant managers be required to take alcohol server training?

Not a bad idea, but then I've always been one for formal qualification and training programs. Certainly such training should be transferable with the employee, not something they need to take at every new restaurant. One doesn't need a new MCSE cert at every job, for instance... I hope!

Re: “Should restaurant managers be required to take alcohol server training?

Why should ANY F&B worker or ANY F&B provider be held responsible for the behavior of a free citizen of the United States of America? Does anyone understand the concept of INDIVIDUAL RESPONSIBILITY? Why is it always someone else's fault?

What about including a personal meeting/photo shoot with the man himself -Zeddie Watkins Little - barechested and showing off some muscle in addition to the SMILE?

It isn't often you get something that is both insanely brilliant marketing and completely insipid hanging-on at the same time.

Re: “Federal and state agencies don't want skatepark under highway ramps


Who pays when an empty beer bottle tossed from a pickup truck on the overpass hits a skater in the head?

Will taxpayers be on the hook when the city gets sued?
