Re: “Online survey seeks public input on plastic bags in Charleston

I'll ask again, does anyone have a citation or link that shows a connection between the environmental movement and introducing plastic bags in stores? I haven't found one. What I see is a lot of data showing that the petroleum/plastic industry was hell-bent on getting a chunk of a huge industry.

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

I believe Muhiyidin d’Baha is a bit of an American Transcendentalist.

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

Vietger - Your assessment is true. There are all kinds of problems in the inner cities, and disadvantaged rural areas. We all know the story of how it got that way. Why tell it again?

People like Muhiyidin d’Baha are not shying away from that. There really needs to be an effort by the entire community to help make things right - it all fits under the auspices of public safety, so our champion has picked a good place to start. We need to do all we can to improve relations with police and citizens. As solutions are implemented, the "black on black" crime will diminish - part of the solution involves creating opportunity, improving self image with loving acceptance, giving the "downtrodden captives" a leg up, preserving the rich Gullah culture, and preventing gentrification.

Getting tired of being 'half-cented' to death. We seem to keep building projects we cannot afford to maintain.

Re: “Online survey seeks public input on plastic bags in Charleston

Did we not get rid of paper bags and start using plastic because we wanted to save the trees? Now we want to get rid of the plastic to save the turtles, and, what, go back to killing the trees? Make up your minds.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

The summary of what happened at the P&C website is accurate. I expect more or less the same here.

The comments section at CCP is my favorite part also, and the main reason for that is the anonymity. People say what they really think. There are some mean-spirited and lower-intelligence people who can't discuss things without resulting to personal insults, it's true - but for the most part it's lively and informative and civil.

When someone can do an internet search in a second and find out where I live (Chas County Property Records), where I work (LinkedIn, a must in my job role), etc - no thanks. Too many nutjobs out there and I value privacy as much as possible.

Also, y'all might find out that I actually dropped out The Citadel 1 hour and 14 minutes into my knob year in Aug 1991, thus failing to actually become a member of the The Citadel c/o 1995, and then, even worse, went to the College of Charleston. Such shame would be unbearable, as I am sure you can understand!

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

Comment board is the only i reason I read the CCP. Not anymore, I'm bowing out. Im not even going to check back and see if it has actual changed to FB. I hate Facebook. Kinda sucks CCP wont be around much longer, I like to get local music news. See ya Ron Liberte, you wacky butthole.

Re: “Why we're switching to Facebook-verified member accounts

I'll say this one more thing before I am cut off. I am gay and my boss is a hard-lined christian who has been quite vocal about his feelings. If I expose myself by commenting with my real name, I likely will lose my career and life-line. I know this seems unfair, but that is the reality in today's world. I can be fired, denied a job, denied housing, kicked out of my housing, denied loans, etc. because of whom I love, so I will NOT risk my life over CCPs censure-ship. There are more reasons to remain anonymous than to just be a troll!

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

Ben...pretty simple solution. But somehow no one in the N Chs community nor minority communities across our country are using this common sense attitude. Just listen to any large city police scanners and you will hear for yourself. The folks calling police for help are black reporting crimes committed by other black folks.

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

Duncan, thats some ignorant and racist stuff man. You are a hypocrite and racist. All right entitled to everyone under the same law. This problem has many interwoven traits of culteral stigma, discrimination and civil rights. But at the same time, there needs to be a better way for the BLM members to get their point accross rather than conduct themselves in the same loud and brash manner that some even in their own community would call "nig***ish." Simple minded people like Dunk'in Duncan should re-educate themselves of how we have arrived at this point. All Lives Matter.

Re: “Local Black Lives Matter organizer arrested at North Charleston City Hall

Personally, I am proud of Muhiyidin d’Baha (sounds Gullah to me) for having the courage of his convictions, and the creative wisdom to form a symbolic "citizen's review board". Working through channels can be excruciating, sometimes even for simple matters. Hopefully, his reasonable actions will inspire the community safety measures that we all seek.

One benefit of the upcoming FB requirement: hopefully Dunkin Dickhead will wither up and disappear back into the hole from which he emerged. Fucking knuckle dragging cretin. Posts like this make me understand the move, Sam.

Now, about that Jaguar XJ...

I believe plastic bags are great. Example: The City Paper just put their ass in a plastic bag.
