Re: “CofC hosts civil rights activist Bree Newsome for a talk Feb. 22 at Sottile Theatre

She is nothing but a criminal and race baiter seeking attention off the blood of sc military soldiers who were asked by their country to defend their homeland! Rather they were white black or cherokee.... They deserve to be honored.... The democratic party is nothing but a bunch of race baiting political correctness freaks party of victims!

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.

So sad this was not a civil act it was a crime. Sad to celebrate a criminal...what have we came to when we celebrate criminals.

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.

Re: “Strom Thurmond and Ben Tillman's legacies surfaced as Elizabeth Warren read Coretta Scott King's words in the Senate

The allegations against Sessions were debunked long ago except for those who use the word racism ad nauseam.

Your hit and run trolling has gotten old and repetitive. Session is now you're attorney general, deal with it.

Sessions was considered too racist to be a judge in the freaking 80s. Think about that for a minute. And he had the support of Strom Thurmond. Think about that as well. Then again, if his supporters had the ability to think, he probably wouldn't be our new Attorney General.

Re: “The Agenda: Plans for Bi-Lo site; McMaster asks Trump for $5 billion; Pope will run for Mulvaney seat

"400 apartments at the old BiLo site and none of them affordable housing because affordable housing is a major priority, just not in my neighborhood, dammit"

These apartments are still affordable. It's just that the people who can afford them are more in tune with The Brand.

For 15 or 20 years our state has not funded its roads like N.C. and Ga. have. As a result our roads are the worst in the U.S. Now our governor wants federal funds to bail out the legislature. Unbelievable!

Re: “Here are the designs for the project that could replace Sgt. Jasper

Fits right in with the other architecture in the neighborhood. It would probably fit better on Broad St. by the Peoples Building, a very similar eyesore.
Vito, stick to the industrial real estate you're familiar with, you're clueless when it comes to historical values.

Re: “After Columbia, is it time for Charleston to consider a new city flag?

Yep, the article was changed after a couple of comments, so I guess that says. "low-budget smartass"
I wonder how long it would have taken without the "G" hint...
And as far as a Supercompressor survey, that makes it almost as scientifically accurate as Yelp or Mashable

Everyone in the country overwhelmingly loves our state flag, because it looks like a Jimmy Buffett song.

Re: “Here are the designs for the project that could replace Sgt. Jasper

Too big a development with no infrastructure in place. Typical of the Beach Company pushing their desires, with their threatening tones, on to the citizens of the City. I don't support it!
