Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

I am disappointed to hear that your city is even considering a ban on any weapon when it is a violation of the 2nd amendment right. When did a city have the right to change the constitution to be a PC City? I spend about 5 weeks a year in your city each year and if the passes you have lost all the money I send there. I am ashamed of the city of Charleston and the State of South Carolina. Your pay cut is in your hands enjoy and I will be passing this information on to all of my friends and everyone I meet while traveling around as to how un-American your city has become.

Re: “New study finds racial and gender disparity among S.C. judges

Really? How absolutely shocking!! I am horrified and taken aback by this info. I would never suspect SC as being waaaayyyy behind the times or having a lack of diversity in Judicial appointments. Number 47 out of 50 you say? As Prong would say, Thank God for Mississippi. They always prevent us from finishing last. Take it further Dustin. How diverse is the Judicial Merit Selection Commission?

"I want to know how tall that blue fence was that surrounded the stage and protected the Democrats from the Democrats?"

Have you ever been to a political event at the Presidential level? They don't fuck around with security measures.

Re: “Delegate blog: A behind the scenes look at the Democratic National Convention

John- Brady is a delegate w/ the S.C. delegation who is writing as a guest blogger from Philadelphia. So, he's not a " REPORTER" or even a regular ol' reporter. This post was written before things got started on Monday.

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!

Edit - and yet here we are, still commenting as before with our nefarious usernames...?

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!
