Some metropolitan areas are actually making their public buses free all the time. The problem with CARTA is that is painfully slow in getting from point a to point bee. By example, a student living on James Island could never get to class at Trident Technical College on time. Some kind of student express buses need to be added to the fleet.
Why so much angst over gays. Its all about marketing. Those that worship the almighty dollar have been telling us for decades in movies, TV and print media ads that 50 % of the population is white, 50% black and 33% gay, despite what the census bureau might say to the contrary. We are also being led to believe that almost 50% heterosexual relationships involve a black male and a white woman (it is apparently only about 7%, but may be rising in the face of relentless propaganda). Now is doesn't matter if marketing in the name of political correctness actually hurt sales in many sectors, except perhaps when businesses begin to understand that it really, really does affect their bottom line, at least in the US. Sociologist and psychologist are well aware of the dynamics of cultural and ethic bias even those the government and business world chose to ignore them. The problem is the media and liberals are actually preaching a religion of sorts which says in effect that if you don't accept everyone as an equal, you are a sinner in the first degree. And of course this fits right in with the agenda of covering all market segments while complying with a government mandate regarding the equal portrayal of minorities and gays in advertising. Sad truth is large numbers of people immediately disassociate when advertising, and even movies and television productions that carry advertisements, unrealistically promote minority dominance or deviant sexual behavior as mainstream. If nothing else, it is an affront to their intelligence. Of course another driving issue regarding gays is their desire to be considered normal in every way, when despite all their rhetoric (and sometimes arrogance), they are not.
You can plan trips on CARTA using Google Maps now, just click the bus Icon when getting directions and your entire trip will be figured out with various options.
perhaps there are many (including legislators) who refuse to be drug down to the level of deviant homosexuals. it might surprise some, but the world has had many cycles of support for it, along with cycles of corporate disgust. i'm waiting for the cycle to return to the latter.
@TrueKafir - because outside of the more progressive Charleston area, this state is full of voting homophobes and unfortunately the voting homophobes (bible-belt citizens outside our tri-county area) outnumber the inclusive, loving and caring voters.
if S/C/ is so much more than homophobic legislators , why do they keep getting elected all the time ?
I know it has been well over a year but the movie is done and has picked up distribution.
1) In the Trayvon/Zimmerman case, the story the cops were given the moment they came upon the situation was that it was a neighborhood watch situation (in essence good guy casing the neighborhood shoots potential criminal that may have been robbing the area). Therefore, there was more issues with trying to decide on prosecution or not. How do you prosecute someone for trying to protect? That's why there was much more investigation needed and things needed to be done right in order to prevent the very backlash that started from the beginning. They were trying to be thorough. It wasn't race based. The screaming of race injustice began on day one, it wasn't something that only built up over time. It just got worse over time.
2) In the Lion case, the cops had the luxury of being able to talk to the victim and hear what happened from him, as well as they had video footage and the murders had priors. There isn't much of a conspiracy here.
It was the NAACP and their followers that helped to rally up the crowds to the levels they became in regards to the Trayvon case.
It's the same issue that plagues every area of the US: Just because someone is black, the thing that happened to them MUST be raced related (even if that thing that happened was due to their own bad choices). I am not saying this in relation to Trayvon per se, but more along the lines of other criminals that have done wrong and NAACP and the race haters (on BOTH sides of the fence), whether they be blacks, Hispanics, whites, etc., stir the crowds into a frenzy and try to make the issue of race the focus and not the crime, even if race wasn't a factor to begin with.
Right up my alley....Zing!!
Blacks can work in the White House but apparently can't write for the Lily white CCP..
Yep, you're right. Just can't keep track of all the Cougars playing in the bigs. Thanks, RED.
Brett Gardner has been a Yankee starter since at least 2010.
In Williamsburg County, lights came on Thursday 2-20; internet, today.
Thanks for the info. I wondered if this was a documented design flaw.
So the College knuckles under to a Bible-thumping Bubba representing the Upstate to save budget dollars? Now I'm disappointed, no I'm pissed.
@mat ... Thanks for the link to the original NFHA press release, but it still says nothing about the two ladies credit history / scores. If there is actual discrimination, I'll support going after the culprits 100% (likely a single employee), but as a person who doesn't discriminate based on race and realizes today's definition of discrimination is worlds different than what occurred in the 1960's, I still don't see any proof here.
Perhaps the solution to this is to "privatize the risk" by sending the Gov. a bill for the legal costs and settlement. That way the next time she decides to ignore being told 3 times that what she intends is against the law her wallet kicking her in the butt will force her to pay attention.
"What was the two ladies credit and credit history?"
What was the two ladies credit and credit history? That KEY factor in issuing a loan is glaringly missing in this article. I've know millionaires turned away for a relatively minor loan (or denied a credit card) because their credit was screwed up for some reason. More income, more down payment, and stronger job history means little, no matter what race if credit is bad. Just asking the obvious.
