Re: “The Agenda: McMaster rejects idea of gas tax bump; Graham asking for Trump wiretap proof; A fix for FollyGras?

Folly Gras was a drunken disaster, but primarily due to poor planning. No proper age-to-drink wristband rules, over serving of alcohol by bartenders, huge lack of porta potties, not enough police and, as usual, lack of adequate parking or means to direct the traffic flow due to the massive number of cars.

Interesting how North Charleston just had a similar event Saturday afternoon for St. Patrick's Day, one exclusively dedicated to drinking, and had a fraction of the problems. Perhaps Mayor Goodwin should call Mayor Summey to get an understanding of how these things should be done.

Re: “THURSDAY: Rodney Scott's BBQ opens at 11:30 a.m. for real

Ok I was excited to try Scotts, I waited 2 weeks for the lines to calm down and then finally made it in. Well gotta say it was disappointing, first of all the bbq ribs I ordered were ok but I expected better, glad I didn't wait in the 45 minute lines. The corn bread was the driest and worse I ever had. The Mac and Cheese was ok. On a 1 to 10 I give it a 5. Will I go again? Probably, but only in a pinch.

Even if a little of the gas tax goes to mass transit, I would say it is a good deal. It is not paid only by SC taxpayers, like income tax, but it is paid also by tourists and other visitors to SC, whoever drives to SC.

Re: “The Agenda: McMaster rejects idea of gas tax bump; Graham asking for Trump wiretap proof; A fix for FollyGras?

I'm not 100% opposed to increase of gas tax (2% would cost the average driver less than 80 cent per tank or about 40 bucks a year) but if McMaster is correct, not all of the current tax goes to bridges and highways and I would revisit that to make sure that that money is being put to proper and beneficial use before the minuscule increase proposed is approved.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I am so glad that lawmakers are taking my porn-induced blindness, and hairy palm syndrome seriously. Mom always said it could happen, but I never believed her.

Re: “Thief allegedly robs Girl Scouts of their cookie money

Glad it got caught. And, I will stop using the term deplorable since it is a sensitive term now. I wasn't insinuating that Trump supporters are thieves, so I apologize to everyone - not just the "offended".

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I call BS.South Carolina has no way of executing its more than 30 death row inmates?The perfect solution is in their own thinking.South Carolina lawmakers have now filed a resolution to declare pornography as a public health hazard and weed is so dangerous that SC would become a death trap,there you have it.Lock them up and take them out with weed and porn!!.By South Carolina lawmakers ideas, they would not last but a few days on death row!!!

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

Does this mean our legislators feel that porn has damaged them?

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I don't cotton to the notion that only one problem can be tackled at once. There are a lot of people in the Assembly and Senate, after all. However, I'd like to see the proportionately-larger effort by our state's reps to combat the legitimate public health hazards in our state. Consider: drug addiction, mercury contamination of drinking water, long-delayed lead and asbestos abatement in low-income housing, the lack of guardrails on rural highways, and of course our crowning achievement: women being killed by their intimate partners.

Work on regulating porn, fine, but if you care about public health then put that much effort or more into things that harm and kill us every day, every year.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

The damn SC sex patrol group again. Why worry about roads and education when Courtney Cummz and Eva Angelina have captured the attention of our political Columbia Crew. I, for one, am mildly disappointed at us only being 25th in the nation. I guess I need to spend some extra time on pornhub to try to bring up our ranking. I know we could be #1 if we all work at it a little harder. Who's the #1 now?

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

What is the public health hazard? Carpal tunnel syndrome? My take away is this "Pornhub users in the Palmetto State spend an average of 10 minutes 44 seconds on the site per visit, 29 seconds longer than the national average." I heard "South Carolina people can last 29 seconds longer than the national average." Finally we aren't number 50 in something.

Re: “Attorneys for Michael Slager cite Trump’s declarations of ‘fake news’ in allegations of media witch-hunt

Fake news: completely fabricated stories peddled by click-baiters to rubes eager for confirmation of their preconceived notions.

Slanted coverage: news that covers a story with a narrative in mind. Not the same thing whatsoever.

Unfriendly coverage: news that YOU don't agree with.

Officer Slager shot a fleeing man in the back multiple times, leading to that man's death. That's not fake news... we've all seen it ourselves. Sorry your client isn't getting painted as a hero for shooting a man at a distance in the back, but it is real news even if it is unfriendly to the accused.

Re: “Protesters clash outside of Bree Newsome lecture

So this civil rights "activist" decided it was okay to violate someone else's civil rights that he disagreed with? Do any of you know the meaning of ironic? Breaking the law for public attention and notoriety is still breaking the law.

Ever-who thinks that this is not a deplorable person stealing from the Girl Scouts, IS deplorable themselves if they condone this.
