Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

Trump is going to keep us safe by keeping the evil Muslims out of the country, except for the ones where trump has business ties, of course. Trump is using personal interests to guide his diplomatic policy. So it is OK for a Muslim from Egypt, Saudi Arabia (9/11 terrorist source), Turkey, Jordan or Oman because that travel WILL affect Trump's business. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/29/politics/how…

Great, hopefully she will do exactly for the UN what she did for the fabulous roads here in SC. Especially the upstate and 26. Take those names Tricky.

Re: “Kevin Bryant is South Carolina's fifth lieutenant governor in five years

I'm kind of a political news junkie but I have to admit: I had no idea that Yancey McGill was ever our LtGov. I guess I got caught up in all the flap over Glenn McConnell coming to CofC. So I learned something already today and it isn't even 10am.

Re: “Charlestonians participate in D.C. Women's March

Agree Kevin, most could not articulate why they were there, fighting for rights women already have...fueling the very divisiveness and lack of tolerance that they claim to be protesting against. The March had nothing to do with Woman's rights, black rights, gay rights, immigration, or any rights. Call it like it is...it was an anti-Trump rally...and certainly did not represent 'All Women.' There have been well-researched reports (NY Times) that it was funded and orchestrated by Soros and more than 50 partner organizations (like Planned Parenthood) so nothing 'grass roots' about it. I'm an educated woman, who voted for Trump and lived through and personally experienced times when things weren't as great for women as they are now (and no, I'm not a racist, bigot, or xenophobe). I don't dislike Obama--not a fan of some of his policies-- but really did not like Hillary as my view (based on facts and research) is that she is extremely corrupt, dishonest, and self-serving. I have been called all sorts of things and even classified as a sexist simply because I didn't vote for the candidate democrats wanted. Given the choices (which were not optimal for democrats or republicans), I voted for the candidate that aligns with my stance on policies and direction the govt needs to take. Although not the most polished person by far, I feel Trump honestly wants to improve our economy, national security, repeal healthcare policies which were doomed to fail by design, clean up govt overspending, and wasteful policies that have been layered on for years, and return the focus of the govt back to the people it serves instead of being self-serving and bloated. These changes are needed and long overdo. When did our country start resorting to name calling and mudslinging when they didn't win an election or agree on policies...Really?!? Time to raise our thinking up a few notches. Regina Hopkins (and as a faithful reader of this publication I am disappointed by City Paper's single lens view that I have seen so far in this paper).

Re: “Charlestonians participate in D.C. Women's March

Peaceful? For the most part. A place to bring your 13yo daughter? Not the DC march unless you want her to hear all the cursing and angry rhetoric spewed by the invited speakers. Oh, and let's not forget the women walking around in giant vagina costumes. Not exactly a "family" event. My eyes are still burning from the image.

Let's face it folks, this was your "sore loser march". I'm a conservative and we had our sore loser march too after Barack Hussein Obama was elected. Our big event was the Restoring Honor rally on Aug 28, 2010, and those of us who attended felt like we had a crowd of 400-500 thousand. Did our march amount to anything? Probably not. Will your march amount to anything? Doubtful. But yes, I bet it made you feel good to be surrounded by like minded individuals, so at least you have that memory. Congratulations and glad you enjoyed it.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham calls out Onion 'scoop'; Clyburn says Trump voter fraud talk is about voter restrictions

I can't shake my suspicion that our President Trump isn't setting up Ambassador Haley for failure. She was a standard-bearer for #nevertrump and landed one of the most devastating "bless your heart" drops in history upon him. Her resume would be suitable for a cabinet or under-secretary position like the IRS or Commerce, but this is her first-ever job outside the 803 (there wasn't even an 864 area code back when she was at Clemson). It hardly makes sense for one of the most powerful Ambassador seats on the planet, the UN Security Council, to go to someone with neither education nor experience relevant to international politics. She has great political ambitions, and this might actually backfire for her... then the President announces plans, that she must parrot, that the US wants to withdraw significantly from influence at the UN. Yikes.

Meanwhile, Governor McMaster jumped on the DJT Express long ago and now he's out of the pit of despair that is the LTGov office and into the big chair. Well la-dee-da for him!

"Nearly 900 people have signed an online petition to demand that Gov. Henry McMaster resign his membership at Forest Lake Club in Columbia, which apparently has no black members. Source: P&C, Change.org"

Forest Lake should make Tim Scott an honorary member. His experience in tokenism may be just the thing McMaster and the country club need to quell this PR disaster.

Re: “Credit card skimmer found at James Island gas station

Not the first time this has happen at this station. Back when Hurricane Matthew swept through, these guys were one of the few on the island with gas. While I always use my gas credit card, this particular time I used a bank credit card. A week later charges started showing up in Florida. Always check, typically by pulling on the credit card reader to detect if it is a skimmer.

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

I think it was more a "keep your hands off my twat, trump!" march. Both figuratively and physically. You have a right to be pro-life and I think everyone is pro-life but you don't have a right to impose your rights on everyone. Just be yourself to the best of your ability and keep you nose out of other's twats!

Re: “College of Charleston professors discuss preserving academic freedom following Trump’s election

"So we are looking at changing the synthesis seminar that goes along with that to add a module about how to become more accustomed to an intellectual conversation that takes place in classrooms where lots of ideas are explored."

Such a statement or such an outcome is a direct result of standardization that exists. Students complaining about professors going off on tangents, will this be on the test, will this affect my grade? Students want to know the bare minimum and want to live an alternative reality where they have created their own avatar based on social media and smart phone applications such as SnapChat. The minute you question their world they fight back with vengeance seeking any weapon they can, such as an evaluation or writing a scathing email, to save their image or rather the avatar that they have created of themselves. Comfort has replaced growth it seems.

If it were a women's march, then it would be inclusive to all women. It wasn't!

"Meeting with the State Ports Authority, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham said yesterday that protectionist trade policies under a Trump administration "will be a disaster for South Carolina."

Graham added, "But I will still support these policies, and Trump, because I have no qualm putting party before country and the people who continue to elect me into office lack the properly developed frontal lobes capable of calling me on my hypocrisy."

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.
