Re: “Indivisible Charleston plans protest during President Trump's visit to the area

Excellent, the secret service and fbi will be able to photograph the subversives for their files for use at a later date and time.

Re: “Indivisible Charleston plans protest during President Trump's visit to the area

Lol. A bunch of whiney protesters. Do something productive instead of wasting everyone's time. All your protests do is make you look stupid.. Why do you want to see Trumps tax returns? What would it change? Nothing. We are all watching you.

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford and Paul taking lead on Obamacare replacement; Proposal for free tech school in S.C.

Interesting. NYT and AP both put a negative in their headlines (reject/ anti-unionization) NPR has an UNBIASED approach to headlines. Maybe we should reject all mainstream entertainment media and get our news from NPR. Maybe the loss of viewership will reduce the "click-bait" headlines and ensure accurate and unbiased reporting. But "click-bait" headlines get the clicks, so to speak, thus the dollars. Money first. Facts, meh. Money FIRST, SECOND and LAST! NPR doesn't have to bow to advertisers so that eliminates the need to play favorites with politics for the viewership ratings.

Re: “Boeing South Carolina workers vote against unionizing

I just wanted them to vote yes so the uninvolved public wouldn't be harassed with the irritating onslaught of smarmy pro/ con ads for yet another year. Rinse, spit, repeat.

Re: “Boeing South Carolina workers vote against unionizing

I'm so glad the vote went the way it did. Unions have devolved into thuggery and South Carolina is a shining example of how well things can work without them.

Re: “Sen. Lindsey Graham vows Boeing support, Russian sanctions

At least the Republican has Graham as the Only one left with integrity and trust worthy and I do respect his opinion and his view, unlike Paul Bryan and Mitchell O'Connell these two are most spineless and they are nothing more than "YES MEN" to protect their job plus others in the Republican they all should be ashamed of themselves and should be all voted out of the congress on the next election 2018.
Let's impeach Trump and replace with Graham as the president of USA.

Re: “Sen. Lindsey Graham vows Boeing support, Russian sanctions

Boeing is one of Graham's top campaign contributors. I wonder how the Senator feels about their continued investments and expansions in Russia?

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

Sigh, we already went through this last round with Boeing. WTF is up Boeing with all the propaganda constantly once again to the general public? That TV ad is moronic. That P & C "opinion" piece yesterday by your P & C boot licking lackey was the biggest pile of horse shit yet. Just like last time, who are those BS ads aimed at? Are your employees sheeple that must be led? Have they no cognitive ability to make choices? Can you not bribe them with small raises? Perhaps you may want to consider paying them a little closer to what their Seattle counterparts make? Our cost of living is just as high as Seattle in Charleston (or it feels that way). The more Boeing squawks, squeaks and flops around the more we smell something bad. No ads on TV or in print and none of us would even notice y'all, except for when we pass you on our way to the airport. Most of us could give a good rats ass about your Union battle, keep it internal. Talk among yourselves and quit bothering the rest of us. We got our own problems.

Re: “Attorneys for Michael Slager ask that his statements to investigators be excluded from federal trial

As we've said before, why are police investigative tactics suddenly bad when they are used against police?

Slager would make a fine addition to the Trump administration, not wanting people to use his own words against him. And mark my words, one of two things is going to happen. Either our lovely new AG is going to press on federal prosecutors to drop the case, or if he is eventually convicted, he will be pardoned.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

I think it's good for the workers' fight to be made public. If they are successful, maybe it will inspire and help other groups become engaged in collective bargaining. I understand unions are not popular here, but collective bargaining is more than just lazy people wanting more money for less work. It's about ensuring safe and ethical working conditions and protections against corporate intimidation and malfeasance in addition to compensating people in a more reasonable manner. If corporations like Boeing want to continue to be subsidized by the government and taxpayer for their operations and losses, they can afford to utilize more their profits on their worker's qualities of life, while still making millions and billions of dollars for themselves.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

While I appreciate Boeing's local presence (except for the free infrastructure and tax-exempt status), I have grown tired and weary of the constant barrage of tit-for-tat on the public airwaves. I, as a non-Boeing affiliated member of the public, would like to suggest we have one more vote; put to the public instead of the private yea/nay voters within the ranks of Boeing. I say we vote to ban public ads related to union voting. I, in no way, am affected by the vote except to have to deal with the unending onslaught of hateful ads. Boeing and the IAM need to keep their pleas WITHIN the walls of Boeing. VOTE ALREADY, STFU AND LEAVE THE PUBLIC OUT OF IT!

Re: “Wednesday marks 49 years since the Orangeburg Massacre

Thank You, I was unaware of this incident. While many will say not much has changed, I see articles like this and realize we have come a long way, though steps can still be taken to bring even greater equality. Racism exists on both sides, however, and we need to stop judging on the color of a persons skin, and instead judge each other based on the actions of the individual.
