as does Scott
Well, if Nikki wants the job, she had better wear the low-cut short dress and stilettos
Also, a few interesting things here:
On the islands, it looks like Folly was divided, SI was for Clinton and IOP was for Trump.
Downtown was for Clinton except, it seems (I am not familiar with districts downtown), the Battery was for Trump.
Mount Pleasure was mostly for Trump except a couple pockets and North Charleston was the opposite.
What percentage of people are "eligible" in urban vs rural areas, though? That word makes all the difference and the fact that it's used instead of a straight rural vs urban per capita comparison is telling. If only 10% of the rural population is eligible vs 60% of the (much larger overall) urban population then that's a huge figure.
Graham has to go. We need new blood. he stands for nothing.
This better jschicke:
Facebook was not the source. The link to facebook was in the news item I read. Thank you.
I would love to know how many of these young people protesting took the time to actually cast any vote at all.
"PORTLAND, Ore. More than 70 percent of the 112 anti-Trump protesters arrested in Portland didnt vote in Oregon, according to state election records. The other approximately 30 percent did cast a ballot in Oregon or in another state."
Update: Tupper, I found your story in other mainstream news services. I can agree that the incident was deplorable. I read that the manager of the Chilli's has been removed, as he should have been. Even if the man were not a veteran, I do not believe a Chilli's manager is informed enough to make that opinion. The chain has contacted Mr. Walker to extend an apology and are working on a solution that 'promotes trust and healing'. Anyone with a small sampling of military history knows that African-Americans have served in Germany.
Tupper, you need to stop using Facebook as a source for information.
There are definitely 4 deplorables here. You 4 people who think it is ok for a veteran with a service dog to be kicked out of an establishment (on Veteran's Day, no less) after showing management documentation, based on a man in a "TRUMP" hat doubting his service (because he is African-American), you are DEPLORABLE and do not deserve the freedoms you enjoy. This is truly a testament to the divisiveness, hate, racism and disrespect the president-elect has cultivated in this once great country.
"But a report out last month from the Center for Rural Affairs (CFRA) illustrates quite a different reality: The percentage of eligible people relying on SNAP is higher in rural areas than it is in urban areas. CRA found that nearly 86 percent of eligible rural residents receive SNAP benefits, compared with nearly 73 percent of eligible urban residents."
We always said "It can't happen here." Looks like we were wrong.
Just in. Trump imperils trade with China with possible direct impact on iPhone sales, US automobile sales, and BOEING sales as orders would be replaced by Airbus orders. Further, US soybean and corn imports would be halted. And exchange students could be impacted as well. OOPS!
Trump's plans should rightly worry if not outright imperil a lot of Americans. However, nothing will come directly from these protests unless the energy is ported into political action. Not mere activism, but action to organize the Democratic party in a lot of states and start building a candidate base for the future. SC Dems are a joke in general, poorly run and usually only making headlines for bad reasons. If there is this level of passion to change that course, long-term benefit may be produced.
Even if you are a Republican, you can't look at the roads, schools, and almost every objective ranking of this state and say "yeah, one-party rule is keeping this state government running tight, clean, and honestly." When they know that we will hand the keys to whatever person with an (R) next to their name that they trot out, they have zero accountability.
We, as a nation, are in trouble:
A Chili's in Cedar Hills, TX kicked a black veteran with a documented service dog out of the restaurant after taking his "free" Veteran's Day meal away after an elderly trump supporter questioned his creds because of his race. Welcome to "trumps" "Great America"!
Steve Bannon, a Breitbart News Network executive chairman, who has been known for having white nationalist views and has been accused of anti-Semitism, was named chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday. And he is likely to consider Ted Cruz as a Supreme Court Justice.
Honesty and integrity not at the top of your qualities? I want what I want and screw the rest of you! I am right you are wrong. Do as I say not as I do! It is all about me, me me.
I.am.afraid.....very afraid.....terrified, even! Our futures and our safety are in peril. Trump's campaign promises threaten the civil rights of countless citizens and freedom of the press. His attacks on the media and promises to censure only the media that disagrees with him is an all too familiar tactic. Only news that is pro-trump will be allowed. He's attacked women, en-masse, and in vulgar ways. He's vowed to seat a Supreme Court justice that will reverse gay marriage with the full support of various religious based "traditional" marriage proponents. (FYI, my marriage doesn't have shit to do with "god", nor his "blessing"). He is anti-pluralistic and has the full support and "christian blessings" of the many supremacists groups, which are also seeing an upsurge in membership since the election. There was talk about the election being rigged. And indeed it was......by the GOP and their minions working behind the scenes to expose the "evils" of HRC's non-existent "email" scandal and the 7 years of "Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi" reprisals, costing taxpayers tens of millions in wasted tax-dollars and wasted legislative time and effort. Mark my words, this is not going to end well for the United States of America, which has been successfully transformed into the "Divided States of America". The "straight, white, christian men" on one side.....and the rest of the nation on the other. The "straight, white christian women" don't understand that for some reason.
