Well, I might have to throw my support behind trump. He just made it ok to go grab some pnssy, even married pnssy. Oh, wait a minute, that would make me a deplorable to support a cad! HRC made the statement that half of trumps supporters were deplorable, but after #pnssygate, ONLY deplorables that think like trump will support him.
We've been very impressed with Gov. Haley's preparations for this storm. It's hard losing these days out of school and out of work, but I think she's handled it appropriately, with dignity, and with diplomacy.
Everwho the reversal engineers are, may the fleas of a thousand camels infest their sphincters. To go from West Ashley to North Charleston requires a trip to RIDGEVILLE exit 187 then back track on 78. 2.5 hours and a half tank later....Viola! Home! SCDOT at it's finest. Not such a great day with buffoons running the show. And they pay these "engineer" high 5 figures for p! Ss sake!
75% of all statistics and polls are made up on the spot. See I just did it?
A recent poll of local food servers say 75% of blacks are bad tippers. See did it again.
A recent poll of African Americans say 75% don't care if you call them the N word and think white people wearing black face is funny and a sign of respect. See did it again .
A recent poll says white cops will shoot black people just for being black. Wait that might be true.
How about I don't want to come to SC because its a backward racist culture and proud of it.
Its not the Flag and here's one more statistic...
75% of people said they just don't care, there's plenty of freaking tourists to go around.
just imagine the economic boost to the state if we could just get rid of all of the white people. progressive nirvana! until it becomes Detroit...
Breaking news! The GOP just published their analysis of the VP debate. And Pence won......before the debate even starts.....in about an hour. They're clairvoyant, no wonder they are so smart!
In May 2000, the SC legislature voted 66 to 43, to remove the Confederate flag from the statehouse dome and put a similar one at the Confederate memorial.
The NAACP was unhappy with the new location and decided to continue their tourism boycott. The flag was removed from the Confederate memorial in February 2006, and the NAACP lifted their boycott.
During the third quarter of 2006, state officials noticed an alarming drop in tourism revenues. After many surveys, studies and models, it was determined that a large segment of South Carolina's normal tourism market had ceased to visit the state. This segment comprised tourists from other Southern states.
"There was no organized boycott...." explains Tim Wheeler, VP of the SC Tourism Consortium. "It was mostly just word of mouth that spread like wildfire across the South."
"We just don't want to spend our money in a state that dishonors our ancestors and history," says JoAnn Reeves, President of Women for Southern Heritage. "Removing a Confederate flag from a Confederate memorial -- that was the last straw for us."
By the time the legislature convened in January 2009, annual tourism revenues were down ten percen from their 2004 levels, and both the government and private concerns that depend on tourism dollars were finding it difficult to make ends meet....
Rebel flag quietly goes back up

I hv lived in Charleston for 9 years and I never saw a Confederate Flag nor a bumper sticker. In fact I still see Obama bumper stickers. Now what other city would Blacks visit? Greenville? I am sure there were no Confederate Flags flying around there. And tourists certainly do not visit Columbia. What for? To see the State House? Don't think so. You come to South Carolina to visit Charleston. So taking down the Confederate Flag, although a sincere gesture, should not have stopped blacks from coming here.
I'm from NYC and grew up with blacks. They went to my Junior High school and High school and college. Worked together. Never saw they were treated any differently then I was by my teachers, or employers. And since I was down here? At the job I worked at, same thing. I never saw any prejudice.
So to me, Flag or no flag. My dad was a Holocaust survivor. I still see the swastika flag, but I deal with it. And just for some reference, I had researched, and still to this day, more HATE crimes are committed on Jews in this country, than on blacks and Muslims. And Jews make up the least amount of the American population. Perhaps America needs to work on the growing problem of Anti-semitism that is brewing in our country.
These days, we prefer our racism to be passive-aggressive, not overt. So sure, the removal of such a visceral symbol is going to help things, but the problem is not going away.
"Researchers recently found that almost half of all out-of-state African-American travelers surveyed said that the flag’s removal increased their desire to visit the Palmetto State." But this does not say that it influenced their decision to visit, merely increased the desire. Perhaps the better question would have been "Would you have made this visit if the flag had not been removed?" But, then again, they probably wouldn't have had nearly as "dramatic" results. A poll can tell you whatever you want if you can frame the questions around the answers you're looking for and then present in the most favorable light ie. almost half sounds a whole lot more prominent than,say, 40%. And a further thought - was the same question asked to White visitors and how would their answers have skewed?
I saw Mr. Coates speak in North Carolina several months ago. His speech last 18 minutes, which was about the same length of time it took for the university president to introduce him. Coates seems to be a nice enough fellow, but he adds little or nothing to the national discourse on race.
Your comment is right there. Nobody's censuring, censoring, or banning you from commenting. You do you, Cosmo.
I posted a comment with my own words and no link here this morning but it is gone. Have I been censured or banned from further comment? Are you a trump supporter and that is why my first amendment rights are being shut down? That would make sense because trump is a dictator in disguise? Inquiring minds want to know.
another government bail out of a failure, just because! When does it stop?
How fun, the Beach Company gets to rape the Lowcountry with the approval of the politicians in search of a dolla.
That Firefighter Jamie Brock is a true hero and all of us could take a lesson from his bravery. Somebody starts shooting somebody tackle them ,hit them, run them over,shoot ,stab,seriously injure with a stick!!!
Anything, just stop running away from them. That feeds the psychos power . His actions saved a lot of young lives, the more this happens the more we need heroes to stop it. Brave men and women who act fast and at great risk. The more of these out there the less psychos will think they can get away with it.
This is not the land of the flee its the home of the brave.
I'm not saying don't be smart and situationally aware just dont be a chicken shit either.
He should get a freaking statue in his honor.
God Bless America and God bless this guy and everyone who acted so bravely to protect these children.
Please pray for the injured.
Sexism at it's finest:
Tupper, no more copying and pasting article excerpts, please.
He manufactures nothing in the US but screams we should bring manufacturing back to the US. Both sides of his mouth run-on independently while he violates embargos to make himself more of a one-percenter:
REPORT: Trump Violated US Trade Embargo On Cuba
September 29, 2016 2016 Election, Business, Scandal
Newsweek reports: http://www.newsweek.com/2016/10/14/donald-…
A company controlled by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, secretly conducted business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency despite strict American trade bans that made such undertakings illegal, according to interviews with former Trump executives, internal company records and court filings.
Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.
The payment by Trump Hotels came just before the New York business mogul launched his first bid for the White House, seeking the nomination of the Reform Party. On his first day of the campaign, he traveled to Miami, where he spoke to a group of Cuban-Americans, a critical voting bloc in the swing state. Trump vowed to maintain the embargo and never spend his or his companies’ money in Cuba until Fidel Castro was removed from power. He did not disclose that, seven months earlier, Trump Hotels already had reimbursed its consultants for the money they spent on their secret business trip to Havana.
Trump is purely for the Christians. All others need not apply:
