Re: “The Agenda: Hootie on Letterman; Senate puts off roads bill; GOP '16 candidates coming to S.C.

I'm one. Market forces are at work. Tenants have choices, plus they have leases in effect in many cases so the rent is fixed. Myself and other landlords will end up eating this tax increase.

In a few years these bitches will look back at this behavior and be totally embarrassed and regret they ever even thought of it. But for now they need an ass whooping.

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

Utter uselessness from people who have precisely zero chance of being productive citizens at present. Later, when they grow up at age 40 or so, they might be. So that's encouraging.

They want what, exactly? A citizen oversight committee? So that, if something like this happens, the policeman involved will be arrested? That already happened.

Do they want to prevent violence against black people (since only #blacklivesmatter, apparently)? Then they need to protest on Line or America street, get to the root cause! It's amazing to me how blacks killed by other blacks (which is the vast majority) are totally irrelevant to these sort of people.

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

Btw, Ron, you still have a problem with reading comprehension so let me make it simple for you, I am NOT talking about white oppression, I am talking about police brutality across the board with ALL races. Try to understand. As for my ancestry, once again you are just guessing.

Double major in creative writing and African American Studies. So writing those signs will be the closest thing she'll ever have to a job in her field.

Kids really need to think about what they major in.

Ron liberty can you show me one scintilla of evidence where you give a shit about the plight of anybody? I'm sorry I don't agree with you and appear to have hurt your little feelings but as I posted before every time you get personal it just shows that you losing the debate

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

Sounds like many people here would agree that Black Lives Don't Matter? or perhaps that Black Lives Matter (but with an asterisk?).
Ok this is ridiculous, ALL LIVES MATTER, people die, people get murdered, protesting is ok but not making it about the lost but making it about some B.S "oppression" thing?
Please just stop. Every life on this planet matters, maybe if people weren't so worried about gangbangers getting killed by the police that JUST SO HAPPEN TO BE BLACK, we could move on to the real issues of the country. Now yes what happened to the guy here was messed up but stuff happens, they are called dirty cops and they are everywhere. The guy did nothing wrong and neither did the guy in Maryland, BUT THAT DOESNT MEAN YOU GO BURN DOWN HALF A GODFORSAKEN CITY FOR SOME ONE MORE THAN HALF OF THE PEOPLE DIDNT KNOW. Seriously, I'm tired of hearing stuff like this

"SOLDIERS WHO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM"

It's really cute you believe that's what the military fights for. Cute and dangerous. It's something a lot of people tell themselves so they don't have to waste brain power thinking about the real reasons for war. Please tell me what freedoms have been protected from any of America's recent wars. And you say all lives matter. What about the lives of the innocent peopled killed by the American military? Do they matter too? Or does your patriotic delusion of freedom trump their lives?

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

Wow! Black lives matter? What about Native American lives? Hispanic lives? White lives? Asian lives? Not to mention the the lives of the LGBT community? What about the lives of those who are neither Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender? What about Straight lives? What about the lives of Police Officers, United States Soldiers, and the Nation Guard? What about Christian lives? It seems to me that what our country should be protesting is the fact that our President wants to sign a deal with our enemy. The same enemy that has been killing our fellow citizens our SOLDIERS WHO FIGHT FOR OUR FREEDOM AND RIGHT TO LIVE for years! That same enemy who has been killing women, men and children for months now based on the fact of their religious preference and belief in the one true almighty God! If you want to protest something why don't you protest that our country's leader opens his eyes and that our country fully starts back supporting our long sense made allies Israel in fighting the true enemy of our country! ALL LIVES MATTER! White people shouldn't kill black people, black people shouldn't kill white people, whites and blacks shouldn't kill hispanics, asians or native americans, blacks shouldn't kill blacks and whites shouldn't kill whites. I think we need to go back over the life of Dr. Martin Luther King and reach for the equality that he dreamed of. SMH!

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

Once again maria delgado won't allow the inconvenient truth to get in the way of his racism!Read Holly Acanforas post. Asian and Hispanic shop owners/workers are tired of being targeted by AA criminals but they are not going around screwing with the citizens of the lowcountry. What would happen should they call in their equivalent to the bloods, crips and black panthers to be their spokesperson and go in to the communities of the offender and cause havoc?

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

One thing is for sure. The protesters managed to annoy a lot of Mt. Pleasant drivers, and make them thankful there was a police force to clear up the roadway...

This was a very interesting aspect of the storyline that I had NOT considered.

Re: “Protesters threaten to shut down Ravenel Bridge toward Mt. Pleasant at 4 p.m.

So, by reading these comments it's evident the good people of the low country have precious little understanding of civil unrest and protest. Shame. Disruption IS a tactic, and one that works very, very well. We'll keep working for us all but it would be much, much better if you joined us.

Re: “Here’s why protesters shut down the Ravenel Bridge Wednesday

Please, for the love of gawd, get a PR person to speak on your behalf. How can I, as a resident and voter in Mt Pleasant influence elections in North Charleston?

Be honest. You chose the bridge to get your message on the nightly news. Nothing wrong with a little honesty. But please, stop with the brunch attacks. Its just dumb.
