The, um, relevant bit starts about 7:30 in. I'd explain further, but they'd hear me.

Re: “Jeff Cook wants to sell your house if you're moving to Canada because of Trump or Clinton

I hv a friend who lived in Canda. Forget it. They voted in an idiot. Trudeau is a horses you know what. He knows nothing. Bought the election. A pretty boy. Rode on his father coat tails. The country was in the black and in a year he put them in a huge deficit. She said their healthcare system sucks. She lives in Vancouver. And it's pretty there. That's it. Then a friend here had her first cousin die of lung cancer because of their healthcare system. He was in the music biz. He lived in Tronto. An American, but got transferred to Canada. He waited forever to see a doctor and then treated him for the wrong thing! His mother in NYC insisted to come home for doctors to see him. But it was too late. He died at 38! You can hv Canada.

All the Hollywood jerks can move there. They can afford their own private doctors!!! It's us peons that get screwed.

Jeff Cook has been running full-sized, I-26 billboards for quite a while. Remember the one of him as a LEGO mini-fig? Anyhow, based on what I've seen the guy gets to drink all the coffee at the brokerage that he wants.

Too cold. Maybe we can get Trump to move to Canada instead?

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Here are trying to solve the money problem with the James Island connector & you pass a bike (path) lane for the "FEW". How embarrassed you people in that office make Charleston look. Shame on you.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

I'm sure the new bike racks will require a small "FEE" to use them. I hope the city doesn't depend on these as a significant amount of revenue. If they do, they will starve.It just dawned on me that the bike lanes would also be a great place for the "DAME" MOPEDS,since they all travel about the same speed,"SLOW".
If you want to ride a bike, go to Hampton Park & bring a box lunch & then ride over to EX-RILEY park & watch a ballgame until the traffic dies down.

If you're serious about moving north, here's how to do it http://15miles.info/move-to-canada/ You're going to want to do some immigration paperwork before you put your house on the market

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Can't wait to see how much this reduces auto traffic now that everyone can ride their bikes to work. Hopefully City Council is adding additional bike racks to handle what's sure to be a massive influx.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

The study actually did monitor traffic volume on the James Island connector. It found the following: "The traffic volumes and magnitude of morning peak hour traffic on the James Island Connector were more consistent across the three periods evaluated, which indicates that there was not a shift of traffic from the Legare Bridge to the James Island Connector Bridge in order to avoid the lane closure."

The complete study is available here:

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Hey kids, just read on governing.com that of all 50 states SC is 4th in per-capita bicyclist deaths over the last three years. So here's our chance for Charleston to make us #1 in another category!

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

Unfortunately, in this case, I believe that somebody will die. That bridge isn't very safe in morning rush-hour traffic in a car, much less a bike.

Re: “West Ashley bike lane narrowly survives City Council vote

They didn't due a study on the traffic onto the Connector during this trial period. It was backed up all the way to Harbor View Rd every weekday, because drivers on Folly Road avoided the traffic going towards the Ashley Bridge. There are 300 new apartments right where they want to make it one lane. REALLY?

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

I love how you did your usual bullshit where you put everyone that you disagree with into a convenient classification which you define (in this case under the classy term "2A dickheads") and then complained when the exact same thing was done to you. Nice! It's not easy to get that all done so succinctly.

So, search my history then and find where I've advocated modification or abolition of any civil rights.

I am not, however, going to search your history. I recognize that people have different opinions and can't be put into neat boxes to make my internet debating career easier.

If you have always advocated for the repeal of the 2nd Amendment then I commend you, you are ahead of the leftist curve. You will, eventually, be on here advocating for the severe restriction or repeal of other civil liberties, I predict.
