Re: “The Agenda: Haley proposes gas tax bump, income tax cut, hosts Riley; N. Chs. weighs Stingrays' losses

I don't know all the details of this gas tax thing.

I do know our roads are notably worse than some other states. How does our fuel tax compare to other states?

Huh? Why was my suggestion of the GoPro HD Helmet Hero model disregarded by the powers that be?? This absolutely ruins my pitch to Fox network for the GoPro PoPo Show....

Haley's gas tax plan should make all conservatives think twice about her views.

Obviously she is just another tax and spend politician despite her conservative rhetoric.

Yeah that's the progressive left for ya snarkie..unfortunately we have progressives that hide as conservatives too..ugh. Tax and spend and crony capitalism.

Taxpayers should NOT subsidize Intertech to support the team. As the most profitable privately owned business in SC, Intertech and the Zuckers should either support their own business ventures or sell it off.
As an employee of a company that Intertech once owned..who was laid off, I don't remember them being very forgiving of my job or wanting to support me.
Its a pure business decision. We should run our city like a business too and don't waste taxpayers money on corporate support.

If they are losing money, tough shit.

Re: “The Agenda: Summey upbeat in State of the City; SLED looking at DeWitt's arrest; Thurmond challenging Sanford?

Tupper, the good ole boy system is alive and well in the whole state, but the law is what it is, and Dewitt is making use of it. Perhaps, this will prompt the legislature to fix this law, but I doubt it. I am glad to see Thurmond thinking of running against Sanfraud. I may not have always agreed with his father's political positions, but he was an excellent example of constituent service, and may have instilled that concept in his son. It is a concept of which Sanfraud has no understanding.

Re: “The life and death of Michael D. Oswald, cop killer

Joe was my friend and high school prom date. This horrible person had far too many chances. Joe had none. Psych. issues are expected with this kind of violence but give me no empathy for this criminal. Imagine if your job was this dangerous everyday... Police officers deserve respect, our faith, our thanks, and high salaries.

Re: “The life and death of Michael D. Oswald, cop killer

He sounds like a nutjob. There are lots like him around, though most won't flip and commit murder. If we could predict who will snap this sort of thing would be preventable. Sad situation, but true.

And one pistol is "a pile of guns"?

Re: “State legislature to look at guns, weed, ethics, sexting, taxes, and mopeds

Since its against the law for liquorcycles (mopeds) to travel in excess of 35mph, their use should be restricted to streets/roads w/speed limit @ 35mph or less.

Re: “My beef with P&C columnist R.L. Schreadley

I enjoy reading Shreadley. You, on the other hand, are passing on something more akin to "Talking Points". Benghazi taught me that Democrats in leadership can say anything as long as they stick together...loyal to the Talking Points. And you, most certainly, are no different. Thank you, Mr. Schreadley. Will Moredock is more suitable to AP or MSNBC.

Re: “Charleston is still a long ways off from embracing true hip-hop culture

"Instead we get met with dress codes meant to keep the "riff-raff" out — because obviously no one in a Southern Tide polo has ever started a bar fight — and a bastardized playlist [...]"

Heh, I certainly remember the early "Purple Tree" days when they would single us out in line and tell us, "No sneakers", but there were white kids in front and behind us with sneakers. Then it became "collared shirts" only, then "no collared shirts with stripes or labels". And when they finally started letting black men in without scrutiny, there used to be a printout next to the DJ booth of artists the DJ was "prohibited from playing"... Beyonce was number 1.

No doubt Dewitt's ability to avoid the possible charges of speeding and eluding, failure to stop for a blue light, reckless driving and running stop signs proof that the Good 'Ole Boy system is alive and well In Hanahan.

Re: “The life and death of Michael D. Oswald, cop killer

There is a GoFundMe http://www.gofundme.com/injuredleo

There is a hockey game tomorrow at 3:00 p.m. between the Charleston Enforcers and a travel team. According to the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Deputy-Joe-Matuskovic-Memorial-Hockey-Game/541073349361982) a portion of the proceeds from T-shirt sales and silent auction will go to Deputy Ackerman.

Re: “The life and death of Michael D. Oswald, cop killer

Brewengineer- I can agree with that. Very well said and respectful. Thought I do not believe his illness excuses killing people, no matter what the profession.
What about a story on how to help the family of Officer Ackerman?!! The wounded officer.

Re: “The Agenda: Haley proposes gas tax bump, income tax cut, hosts Riley; N. Chs. weighs Stingrays' losses

I don't understand why tax payers of Charleston have to subsidize the rent of the North Charleston Coliseum. Shouldn't the ticket prices and merchandising be priced such that the business is profitable, and if it is not profitable, then it is a failed business?
So.. let me get this straight, the arena doesn't sell out because there's no interest in the product, and because there's no interest in the product, taxpayers are forced to subsidize the product??
I guess tea baggers and capitalists like minor league hockey, so Ayn Rand doesn't apply here.

Re: “Police stop Uber driver citing statewide ban

Cid - per the National Archive, Obama has issued fewer Executive orders per year than any President since Truman. And from an AP article dated Nov. 17, 2014: "Reagan enacted a sweeping overhaul that gave legal status to up to 3 million immigrants without authorization to be in the country, if they had come to the U.S. before 1982." and " Bush Sr. went big at the time. He protected about 40 percent of the unauthorized population." Hmmmm, looks like the same thing we have now. Or does Associated Press not count cause they're not Fox News?

Re: “The life and death of Michael D. Oswald, cop killer

The heartbreak of this story is not the failure of Oswald to receive treatment (which he didn't want and I believe could not have been forced to undergo in the absence of a psychotic episode) but the cold blooded murder of a human being/family man/mentor/friend/protector to many and the serious injury to Deputy Ackerman. Like Alice Boland, the signs were there in Oswald, but there wasn't enough for that individual to be treated involuntarily, given the legal requirements. My heart sank when I saw the depiction of the murderer of Joe Matuskovic on the cover, but I agree with the previous comments that the article is a well written account. Had Oswald not been stopped almost immediately, who knows how many others he might have injured or murdered that night.

Rest in peace, Joe, and prayers to Deputy Ackerman for a full recovery. What a nightmare.
