Re: “Houston's Tom Herman is the wrong head-coach choice for the Gamecocks

What an idiot.

40-3 as OC at Ohio State
Undefeated as HC at Houston (First Time in School History)
It's not micro-managing.... It is keeping your facilities looking nice since ticket holders and boosters invest their money into helping build this stuff and for recruits coming in.
He had his O-Line moved to first-class on a flight after a win (moved coaches down to coach) because of how well they had played.
He is known as a good recruiter. Been called a good living room guy, requires coaches to meet social media quotas, he is young and energetic.
Leave after one year.... SC can throw about any amount they want at him, and it will be much more than the 1.25 million he is making at Houston. He has an opportunity to get into an SEC program that has shown that they have potential to compete at a high level with the right talent. He would be in a better spot for recruiting (NC, SC, GA, FL, VA, etc) than say Missouri. If he is successful, you give him and the staff raises, increase his buyout. Why would he want to go somewhere with high expectations when Carolina would keep him as long as they want with some 8 or 9 wins seasons, and the occasional 10,11, or more, and a win against Clemson (let's say every other year).
Hey bud, Houston isn't a top tier job. Going undefeated won't get them in the playoff. Why not take a chance somewhere else. Could he ditch town... yes, but A big buyout can go buy your university another top tier coach if the right school wants to pay you. Look how McIlwain did an Colorado State with that buyout. Florida really had to talk to CSU to get them to a reasonable agreement.

You should go back to school and learn how to write. This is quite possibly the worst article I've read about anything in a long time. The points to back up your opinion are absurd.

Re: “Park Circle gets a Cajun restaurant

This thread took an interesting turn... like actually interesting. I'm just excited that I'll have someplace to forward this guy's mail that still comes to my house.

As for the smoking issue: it may be government busy-body work, but it is an overreach that has brought me great joy over the years since the bans have been rolling out locally. A vast improvement in the dining experience, in the bar-hopping experience, and my experience as a singer performing in these now-smoke-free venues. My equipment doesn't smell for weeks afterward, either! And as many libertarians like to argue: your rights end where my nose begins, or something like that.

Re: “Park Circle gets a Cajun restaurant

Sometimes a politician needs to vote for what is right and not what is popular. Forcing a business to not allow their patrons to do something that is completely legal is not right. Whether or not it helps or hurts the business is irrelevant, and in the vast majority of cases I have seen it has helped, it is not the government's business to decide what legal activities a business allows in it's establishment. If someone doesn't like that aspect of the business then go somewhere else and that business will either survive on fewer customers to the owners satisfaction or fail because not enough people go iin.

As I pointed out above, all but one place in the Park Circle business district allows smoking inside and overwhelmingly it was a decision they made when they opened. Only two of the current ones ever allowed indoor smoking and Madra Rua stopped it several years ago which now leaves only the Mill. They, like many restaurants, felt that the loss of some business would be overcome by the gains in additional business from patrons that did not like a smokey environment. No law needed, the market took care of the problem. And, for the dwindling number of folks who do like to go into a smoke filled choke fest there are still a tiny number of places that allow it.

Re: “The Agenda: Beach towns ask for federal aid; Summey criticized for "retribution" remark; Leon announces endorsements

I simply supported my viewpoint with a fact. of which i did give a credit.
btw Ron please look into the loss of folly island since the building of the jetties and before there even was an IRS. In this case, the loss is not entirely the fault of mother nature but misguided goverment engineers and since the goverment is at fault i assume they should continue to try to rectify.
I think you have a point in many other beach situations, but actually Folly island is a special case. The loss of beachfront started long before the property was only available to the very rich.
If we had our way and we could just make the beach front of sea islands a natural resource available to everyone we would still want to renourish the island.

Thanks Jaxx for simply figuring out the real point i was making. Apparently some poster's blind faith to there agenda makes them oblivious to any opposing opinions.

But of course, there is no difference between that and any of the world's major fanatical religious sects. doh.

Even the despised Westboro Baptist Church has not killed anyone.

"Need i remind you of the countless innocent deaths worldwide from Islamic terrorism?"

Obvious hyperbole is obvious.

"Just yesterday over 150 more innocent lives were taken, some our fellow americans."

Yes, and as tragic as it is, your continued misconstruing of it doesn't help at all.

"Your comment seems to undermine the seriousness of Islamic terrorism. There is no competition."

Well, actually:…

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. freezes on "Gathering Place" zoning; Berkeley's hard line on refugees; Slager sues police group

By Susie Bright.

Voila, the “manifesto” of the Paris suicide bombers, in their own words (see below).

Their obsession with sexual revenge, the revenge of the sexually rejected, is intense : They referred to the Bataclan nightclub as a place where where hundreds of “apostates” had gathered in a “profligate prostitution party” — that means a rock concert.

Bohemian Paris is on top of ISIS’ target list because it is the country of “obscenity and perversity.” Again, it’s Paris’ mythic reputation for the libertine, for free sexual exchange, for romance and unashamed ecstasy.

This “faith army,” this death cult built on sexual repression masked as religious purity– has a detailed manual about how to run a sex-slave market of their war captives, including rules of inheritance. Essentially, you can’t be a soldier in their army unless you buy into the faith that beautiful women everywhere are taunting and rejecting you, but you will teach them all a lesson by enslaving and raping them all day long — same with young boys. Everything “depraved” is holy when you’re inflicting it upon a slave — makes perfect sense, right?

At some point your Grand Wizard arranges a marriage with an appointed virgin your parents picked out for her dowry. She is of no erotic interest; she is a nonperson except as your baby-receptacle and income source. Siring sons is her husbandry.

Meanwhile, you monitor all the women’s menstrual cycles and the puberty of the young boys and girls in your slave pen so you can be sure to rape the right person on the most advantageous day, repeatedly shouting God’s name when you come.

VOMIT. Vomit. Vomit.

Every fundamentalist religion today is running on the fumes of sexual psychosis. They are huffing and huffing and huffing until they annihilate everything including themselves.…

Re: “The Agenda: Beach towns ask for federal aid; Summey criticized for "retribution" remark; Leon announces endorsements

"beachfront homeowners of the 1900s have attempted to slow the beach's retreat to protect their property along an eroding coast."

And in an effort to do so, they rely on the tax dollars of people who will never be able to afford beachfront property. Your own copy pasta contradicts whatever ridiculous point you were trying to make.

As an aside, do you ever have an original thought? Constantly using the work of others while contributing nothing yourself ironically sounds a lot like behavior you are opposed to, if you could communicate it without pasting paragraphs from someone else, that is.

it's beyond me to take the three hours to educate you about how stupid, no MORONIC, this article is. you have to be one of the dumbest people to ever write an article about anything. your loser mentality is so far out there, that it isn't even worth taking the time to bring you back to reality. whoever hired you, is the worst judge of talent in the history of hiring people. you are dead wrong about everything.

Re: “To fight growth or to harness it?

"His post-election pledge for a one-year moratorium on new hotel construction on the peninsula reveals as much and should send a chill through the spine of Charleston Metro Chamber representatives."

Who gives a shit? Chambers of Commerce rarely reflect the public interests of the areas they serve. They exist as a PR wing for corporatists who want to put a positive spin on receiving welfare from communities they never actually help.

Having said that, Tecklenburg's downtown hotel moratorium is a blatant populist appeal. I would feel much more comfortable voting for him if he wanted a moratorium on the ridiculous and unnecessary growth of apartment/condo/housing developments and their subsequent environmental destruction.

Re: “The Agenda: Chs. freezes on "Gathering Place" zoning; Berkeley's hard line on refugees; Slager sues police group

I mean its not all that bad with ALL corporations. I'm just trying to make a point. He who is without sin should cast the first stone, and alot of you act like you have been stoned alot.

Anyone who GENERALIZES groups of people over a complex issue such as a terrorist attack, deserve to get pushback. Don't blame a religion, ethnicity, "race", or cultures of other people or you deserve to have your own cultures dirty laundry aired out.
Did the United States get formed for the equality of man? YES.
We all have to work together to make a better tomorrow for the planet starting with our selves even if we have differences of opinion- OUR NATION WAS FOUNDED ON THIS PRINCIPLE. NOT HATRED and blaming others for our own problems. Americans have always had a resilience and a pioneering living off of the land spirit of self determination.

People all don't get a long everywhere without the golden rule principle in their hearts (another reason CHARLESTON is so successful compared to the rest of the country).

People are people. The people don't want war in the middle east they want peace, but these same dictators that they are rebelling against are just our puppet governments put in place by our corporately hijacked government during the 80's (Gaddafi, Saddam, Mubarak). In the past this acting like PONTIUS PILATE was done over oil to protect our mass production based economy. Now it is done to protect the status quo and kill individuality off of the planet as KINGS STILL EXIST.

They factory raise our animals for slaughter, and you are what you eat even if its MASS PRODUCED. The Native Americans said, "what happens to the animals first then happens to the humans". Look around you. Your lucky your in Charleston where we still have it so nice, where it is still UNDERDEVELOPED. Other places in OUR OWN COUNTRY are RATS nests of urban sprawl and concrete slums. Thus we have refugees coming from bigger cities to escape the WAR ON HUMANITY mass production brings when tied to technology that is used to monitor your every action. "Think of the children!! How can we maximize production off of them?" their corporate overlords think...

Other places in the world do not even have electricity on all day in their houses (most of the world). These people are not watched and monitored like wildlife in their own homes with cancer causing geo-tracking chips unless they use our Smartphone technology. We coordinate this crap being built in tandem with countries that suppress human rights violently like china. THANKS APPLE and MOTOROLA!

Is bigger always better? No. Sometimes it is better to have a little less and be happy rather than have everything and lose passion for life. Life is Beautiful, and it has a sacred right to itself. MASS PRODUCTION does not put the intrinsic value of things in the excel spreadsheets. Trees are more than a plot of land, and our natural world is not just a big resource to mine for garbage like a coal mine.

Native Americans knew the nature was the BEST technology even though they didn't even have wheels for carts to pull. It was called "gardening by management". They didn't section off farms to drain the soil. They made yearly migrations spreading seeds along the trails leaving them to grow naturally. Benjamin Franklin and our forefathers knew this and formed our government with heavy inspiration from Native Americans which most of us are partial descendants of as well. There should be fruit trees everywhere not GAS STATIONS.

Why don't we launch a war on pollution with our armed forces instead of a war on terror? THEN MAYBE THE PEOPLE OF THE WORLD WILL LOVE THE UNITED STATES AGAIN and we will be restored to leading the planet. It's not always just having the technology that makes you the best, but its also knowing how to use it.
