Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

"Now, now...I am all for protesting. But,"

You're not for protesting if you have to add a qualifier regarding your terms for protests.

"And spare me this popular vote garbage. Hillary won the popular vote by CA only. Take CA out "

If we ignore the will of the state with the most people, the numbers would be different. I am so looking forward to the next four to eight years of this type of derangement and pretzel-twisted logic.

"I can't wait for this new administration to start and clean house."

Cleaning house of course means picking the same retreads for cabinet positions and administrative/advisory roles that have been involved in politics and lobbying for decades.

Re: “How Charleston Music Hall combats online ticket scalping

One way to combat this is to open your local ticket office 90 minutes before online sales are available. Still limit to 4 or 6 tickets but if you do this you allow locals who really want to attend and who are willing to go onsite to get tickets.

Then whatever else is available is a free for all after the first 90 minutes. This will stop a lot of the problems.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

My goodness....this is an Inauguration, for goodness sake. We would not be having this conversation, if we had not had the the threats by the likes of Michael Moore and his left wing lunatics who actually have said ( maybe not Michael) but other left wing loons, that there hv been death threats. Bottom line, these protesters have called for violence. Now, now...I am all for protesting. But, how about doing it the next day, like , from what I hear, a bunch of dames are doing...however, I did hear at first, some Pro-Life women were going to attend also, but then they were told, they could not. That is inclusion for ya by the Left wing. And shame on John Lewis. First he lied, because he did this when George W was elected. He did not attend the Inauguration. He said this was the first time he did was doing this. It really is a disgrace what the democrats are doing. Babies. And the rest of performers bowing out because they ar getting death threats...what nerve from people. Even Steve Harvey, he got death threats, just by talking to Trump....what is going on with YOU People????

And spare me this popular vote garbage. Hillary won the popular vote by CA only. Take CA out and Trump won the popular vote by 52%/48% over Hillary. Google it. Thus proves we need the electoral college vote. And all I heard by CNN and MSNBC , and trust me I watched them both was "the road to the WH by the electoral college, and Hillary was walking in with 242 electoral college votes.." That was all I heard. and how hard, or nearly impossible it was for Trump to get to 270. Never, ever, did the popular vote enter into the equation, and all you liberals out there know it. As a woman, did I cringe, with some of what Trump said? Yes. But living in NYC my whole life, never ever was there any scandal of Trump molesting women...and trust me, the NY Daily News and the NY Post would hv gotten wind of it immediately. And that stupid tape that we heard with Billy Bush? Give me a break...how many of you guys have spoken about women like that? And I can tell you the conversations my girlfriends and I hv said about men. And I voted for that pig Elliot Spitzer as Governor of NYS and look what he turned out to be! Caught with hookers!!!! And then gets a show on CNN? Are you kidding me? Goes on Bill Maher and I hv to listen to him putting Trump down. He get a pass because he is a liberal? It always seems that the democrats gets a pass when it comes to any scandal. The double standard boggles my mind. I was a democrat most of my life, but I left the party and became an Independent because I read comments like this that are so biased. So one sided. I can't wait for this new administration to start and clean house. And just as all these protesters have a right to go to DC and try and make trouble for Trump? because they have already said they are out to make trouble, Chris Cox has every right to do what he is going to do.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

Disrespect and the lack of consideration is what is wrong with this world - everyone's an asshole (admittedly, myself included)! All of us were taught that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar and to play nice, even if you have a differing opinion, no matter the reason for that differing opinion. No one wants to get along anymore. I recant my clever "Wall of meat 4" high" comment since it was disrespectful. If going to Washington and providing citizen protection is what they want to do, then by all means, travel. Be careful and please keep (the) calm. And don't forget to help control the pet population and have your pet spayed or neutered.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

Gosh, Ron is so smart. If we would all just listen to him, he has all the answers. Kind of makes you think his actually life is in disarray because all he does is nah say everything and has stupid "solutions" to everyone's problems. He must have plenty of free time to comment on everybody's articles.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

"Wall of meat" really had me thinking of a nice BBQ spread for some reason, but he's going for a human shield concept to backup the police doing crowd control. I'm sure the coordinated Metro PD are really looking forward to it. Fortunately Trump canned the General in charge of the event security effective during the ceremony, so they'll have other distractions to handle.

This is a really strange time we've come to. Good luck, neighbor, enjoy being weird in a group.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

"In the event that we are needed, we certainly will form a wall of meat"

The only way you and the other meatheads are needed is to be used as pawns, ignorantly and willfully being turned against those who should be your brothers and sisters in humanity, instead opting for a false solidarity with people who will never help you, who will never give a shit about you, and who will destroy the very fabric of the country you claim to love so much.

Re: “Proposed changes could increase workforce housing requirements in Charleston

Property owners and developers seem to be pretty upset about this. You know, the people that don't have to commute over an hour each way downtown and spend 10-20% of their wages on parking alone? "Kick the can down the road a while and see what happens then," they seem to be saying. What open disdain for the working-class (read: not bums, miscreants, or any other humans-as-blight boogeymen that strike such fear into the wealthy) that power this service-industry city!

Re: “Proposed changes could increase workforce housing requirements in Charleston

Why not use tax incentives to incentivize developers to build many thousands of tiny inexpensive apartments, so that poor people can afford to live here?
