Re: “More than 2,000 join women’s march in Charleston

Nothing a woman appreciates more than a manspaning male telling her what a "woman's march" is about and what reference sources she can use, ROMALOL. Hope you got a pussy hat out of it.

The Daily Fail? Now we're importing talking points from English tabloids?

I'm certain that the countless men at these numerous demonstrations felt hated, Ms. Vergara.

Re: “More than 2,000 join women’s march in Charleston

I work for SC government and make less than my female counterpart who came after me. Its not black and white, Men make more than women, there are a lot of factors involved. A lot of times its seniority is why people make more.

Pro-Life women were denied access at these events. Just a Pro-Abortion, man hating fest

Re: “More than 2,000 join women’s march in Charleston

Send Governor Jim Justice an email, asking him to give female state employees equal pay as male state employees for equal/comparable work. According to articles in the Mountain Messenger newspaper, the state of West Virginia is paying some male state employees more money than female state employees doing the same job. http://www.governor.wv.gov/Pages/SubmitaCommenttotheGovernor.aspx

Re: “More than 2,000 join women’s march in Charleston

Despite the rain it was a beautiful day. Many thanks to the organizers, marchers and volunteers. They all combined to make this event special. Now we must use the momentum from yesterday to build and expand our struggle to keep this country a great beacon of freedom in the world. Lady Liberty has a smile on her face today.

Re: “How Charleston Music Hall combats online ticket scalping

Carmody should start scalping his own tickets. If someone's willing to pay $500 for one of these tickets why is the Music Hall selling for $50? Sell them (or a portion of them) for what they are worth!

Re: “How Charleston Music Hall combats online ticket scalping

Why don't venues allow the customers to return tickets once a certain % of seats are sold? I would think it would eliminate the need for stubhub and craigslist.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

Death threats started on the campaign trail by trump supporters are only being returned because it has been normalized, and the response for many has been "you must fight fire with fire" to survive in this new "world order". Unverified news was started by the GOP and if unverified news is what is now normal, then this news can be used against the right, just as it was used against the left. The honesty, integrity, consideration and general moral standards of a previously mature nation have digressed into petulant madness and no one can say anything anymore without being snide and introducing bullying to denigrate other's opinions.

What I will say is, the bikers think that they are going to DC to protect their new leader and that is fine. I would just add, that everyone needs to behave. But the worst behavior has been brought out of the people by trump's utter lack of respect for seemingly, everyone as he has encouraged bullying (on twitter, multiple times daily and nightly) as normal. My life (and millions of others) has been tormented by bullies and there is no way I can respect anyone that supports that as a means of getting what they want while debasing or harming others. It would be against my tenets of honor and dignity to embrace anyone like that. The only thing I can do is encourage respect among differing opinions and hope that real facts and knowledge will help everyone to come together.

Petulance will destroy this nation, without a doubt, and we're just steps away from utter divisiveness and I implore the new President to show maturity and respect and the nation WILL follow and we will be "one people" again.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

"Now, now...I am all for protesting. But,"

You're not for protesting if you have to add a qualifier regarding your terms for protests.

"And spare me this popular vote garbage. Hillary won the popular vote by CA only. Take CA out "

If we ignore the will of the state with the most people, the numbers would be different. I am so looking forward to the next four to eight years of this type of derangement and pretzel-twisted logic.

"I can't wait for this new administration to start and clean house."

Cleaning house of course means picking the same retreads for cabinet positions and administrative/advisory roles that have been involved in politics and lobbying for decades.

Re: “How Charleston Music Hall combats online ticket scalping

One way to combat this is to open your local ticket office 90 minutes before online sales are available. Still limit to 4 or 6 tickets but if you do this you allow locals who really want to attend and who are willing to go onsite to get tickets.

Then whatever else is available is a free for all after the first 90 minutes. This will stop a lot of the problems.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

My goodness....this is an Inauguration, for goodness sake. We would not be having this conversation, if we had not had the the threats by the likes of Michael Moore and his left wing lunatics who actually have said ( maybe not Michael) but other left wing loons, that there hv been death threats. Bottom line, these protesters have called for violence. Now, now...I am all for protesting. But, how about doing it the next day, like , from what I hear, a bunch of dames are doing...however, I did hear at first, some Pro-Life women were going to attend also, but then they were told, they could not. That is inclusion for ya by the Left wing. And shame on John Lewis. First he lied, because he did this when George W was elected. He did not attend the Inauguration. He said this was the first time he did was doing this. It really is a disgrace what the democrats are doing. Babies. And the rest of performers bowing out because they ar getting death threats...what nerve from people. Even Steve Harvey, he got death threats, just by talking to Trump....what is going on with YOU People????

And spare me this popular vote garbage. Hillary won the popular vote by CA only. Take CA out and Trump won the popular vote by 52%/48% over Hillary. Google it. Thus proves we need the electoral college vote. And all I heard by CNN and MSNBC , and trust me I watched them both was "the road to the WH by the electoral college, and Hillary was walking in with 242 electoral college votes.." That was all I heard. and how hard, or nearly impossible it was for Trump to get to 270. Never, ever, did the popular vote enter into the equation, and all you liberals out there know it. As a woman, did I cringe, with some of what Trump said? Yes. But living in NYC my whole life, never ever was there any scandal of Trump molesting women...and trust me, the NY Daily News and the NY Post would hv gotten wind of it immediately. And that stupid tape that we heard with Billy Bush? Give me a break...how many of you guys have spoken about women like that? And I can tell you the conversations my girlfriends and I hv said about men. And I voted for that pig Elliot Spitzer as Governor of NYS and look what he turned out to be! Caught with hookers!!!! And then gets a show on CNN? Are you kidding me? Goes on Bill Maher and I hv to listen to him putting Trump down. He get a pass because he is a liberal? It always seems that the democrats gets a pass when it comes to any scandal. The double standard boggles my mind. I was a democrat most of my life, but I left the party and became an Independent because I read comments like this that are so biased. So one sided. I can't wait for this new administration to start and clean house. And just as all these protesters have a right to go to DC and try and make trouble for Trump? because they have already said they are out to make trouble, Chris Cox has every right to do what he is going to do.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

Disrespect and the lack of consideration is what is wrong with this world - everyone's an asshole (admittedly, myself included)! All of us were taught that you catch more flies with honey than vinegar and to play nice, even if you have a differing opinion, no matter the reason for that differing opinion. No one wants to get along anymore. I recant my clever "Wall of meat 4" high" comment since it was disrespectful. If going to Washington and providing citizen protection is what they want to do, then by all means, travel. Be careful and please keep (the) calm. And don't forget to help control the pet population and have your pet spayed or neutered.

Gosh, Ron is so smart. If we would all just listen to him, he has all the answers. Kind of makes you think his actually life is in disarray because all he does is nah say everything and has stupid "solutions" to everyone's problems. He must have plenty of free time to comment on everybody's articles.

Re: “Local chainsaw artist and Bikers for Trump founder promises ‘wall of meat’ at Trump inauguration

"Wall of meat" really had me thinking of a nice BBQ spread for some reason, but he's going for a human shield concept to backup the police doing crowd control. I'm sure the coordinated Metro PD are really looking forward to it. Fortunately Trump canned the General in charge of the event security effective during the ceremony, so they'll have other distractions to handle.

This is a really strange time we've come to. Good luck, neighbor, enjoy being weird in a group.
