Re: “It’s official: New law allows S.C. distilleries to serve up mixed drinks

And of course we know that Joe Riley park is "just"across the street from the City of Charleston Police Dept. That should be a lot more revenue.

Re: “Person dressed as dinosaur startles Charleston carriage horses, injuring driver

Hoping that they secure the radical activist and fine/jail him/her. Although I heard it was a woman.

Re: “Newly released jailhouse videos show the strained relationship between Dylann Roof and his family

I would personally like to insert the needle. For free. I'm a nurse and can find a vein on a turnip. This polyp would be an interesting venture for hard-to-find veins. Might take a lot of tries....too bad, huh?

Re: “Woolfe Street developers reach agreement with city on workforce housing fee

So if you build housing you must let some of it go at a loss? That's much better than allowing the creation of population density which lowers the price of housing for everyone with the side benefit of making mass transit efficient and affordable. We don't need no stinking housing, we just need the limited housing we have to cost renters less than it costs the owners because despite the well known fact that not allowing housing increases the cost of housing we can do it better than 100% of the world can, kind of like communism has failed everywhere because they didn't do it wrong, but we can do it right.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham reserved in reaction to WaPo scoop; Gowdy out of FBI running; SC-5 runoff today

As a fellow naif when it comes to NC Constitutional Law and Federal Constitutional Law, I also think my opinion based on 90 seconds of reading makes more sense than the actual justices that studied and heard the case for many hours as part of their careers of many decades. I will now pretend that there is no historical nor political context to the decision nor the barely-veiled motives behind the NCGOP actions, because that (a) requires less reading and (b) supports my all-important opinion.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham reserved in reaction to WaPo scoop; Gowdy out of FBI running; SC-5 runoff today

I read through the NC voter ID laws and I don't understand what the big deal was. They offered free ID's to anyone who didn't have a driver's license, passport, etc. People over 70 weren't required. Absentee ballots were still a thing. Showing an ID to go vote doesn't seem like a crazy concept to me.

rukiddingme

For what it is worth, I'm pretty sure the title of this article was changed from the original. Nonetheless, I agree with your point.

Re: “How Dylann Roof’s commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution

i took your clickbait at "How Dylann Roofs commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution." Nowhere in your story did i see how killing a bunch of people in a church is cool if it's not racist.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham and Scott differ on Trump; Teachers training to help Gullah speakers; McMaster playing politics with veto?

He's now compromised intelligence personnel and intelligence gathering as related to ISIS, (unknowingly?) while apparently boasting about the intelligence to which he has access. This compromise may lead to domestic attacks given we've lost an avenue of critical intel of ISIS plans.

Can Trump really be this naive? Are his advisers feeding him fake news? Do his advisers even know how to vet fake from real news before feeding? I believe his entire advisory committee may be inept.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham and Scott differ on Trump; Teachers training to help Gullah speakers; McMaster playing politics with veto?

I dunno, Tupper: while Senator Scott is absolutely a "party before all" type of cog, his statement to me shows significant displeasure with our President. My interpretation: "there have been a lot of lies and contradictions all along, unfortunately that means this latest round is nothing new." The "unfortunately" grabbed me in his statement.

If Trump is losing support from opportunist yes-men like Senator Scott, then I think that's pretty significant.

Scott towing the party line. Did he sign the "loyalty oath" to Trump? That's loyalty to Trump, not loyalty to the United States and our Constitution, to be clear. Demanding loyalty to oneself over the US Constitution is tyranny, in and of itself.

Re: “Former Mt. Pleasant councilman charged with criminal sexual conduct following ‘prom party’ investigation

Say, do you geniuses know that someone in this country is innocent until proven guilty? Did you further know that Mr. Glasson has political enemies who may be behind all this? Maybe you should wait for the facts before popping off,,,

Re: “The Agenda: Graham skeptical of Obamacare repeal; Pols settle on 12-cent gas tax bump; Tebow boosting Fireflies

I dont remember who spoke at my graduation either. That was 1994. With that said, i still agree with the graduates. Why should they have to pretend to want him speaking if they disagree with his stance on things. ie..Betsy devos @ Bethune-cookman. Maybe the graduates should get more input into who speaks.

I wonder if when he was in politics, he portrayed himself as a conservative family-values man. After all, he was elected in a predominantly Republican city.

Yes, I guess McMaster wants to look like a martyr that he will be booed at the university, so conservatives will admire him more. Maybe that is why De Vos did a similar thing.

Re: “How Dylann Roof’s commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution

He's "preserving his reputation' as a soulless p.o.s.

In the future CCP, I prefer to only hear about him when he is finally, sooner rather than later, at room temperature.

Re: “How Dylann Roof’s commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution

Ok. We get it. The dude is literally a moron who thinks black people are out to take over the world and that white supremacy is the only way to happiness. He was so engulfed in this that he was willing to kill 9 innocent people with no remorse. He does not have the same ideologies as 99.99% of Americans because the overwhelming majority of us know that this was wrong and shouldn't ever happen.
