Re: “Why don't we call white extremists terrorists?

" "good things" came from the the terrorist attack on Emanuel AME ". Small price to pay to remove flag? That's as insulting as it gets and Duffy should not be using terrorist attacks in that manner! Duffy is a bigot. Any mass killing IS a terrorist attack, period. Alternative facts is the new catch phrase for the GOP led White House.

Re: “CofC hosts civil rights activist Bree Newsome for a talk Feb. 22 at Sottile Theatre

She is nothing but a criminal and race baiter seeking attention off the blood of sc military soldiers who were asked by their country to defend their homeland! Rather they were white black or cherokee.... They deserve to be honored.... The democratic party is nothing but a bunch of race baiting political correctness freaks party of victims!

Re: “Sen. Lindsey Graham vows Boeing support, Russian sanctions

At least the Republican has Graham as the Only one left with integrity and trust worthy and I do respect his opinion and his view, unlike Paul Bryan and Mitchell O'Connell these two are most spineless and they are nothing more than "YES MEN" to protect their job plus others in the Republican they all should be ashamed of themselves and should be all voted out of the congress on the next election 2018.
Let's impeach Trump and replace with Graham as the president of USA.

So sad this was not a civil act it was a crime. Sad to celebrate a criminal...what have we came to when we celebrate criminals.

Re: “Sen. Lindsey Graham vows Boeing support, Russian sanctions

Boeing is one of Graham's top campaign contributors. I wonder how the Senator feels about their continued investments and expansions in Russia?

Re: “Combating drug-facilitated rape in Charleston

Thank you so much for publishing this story. I was drugged as a CofC freshman at a King Street bar. I was picked up by an ambulance and taken to the hospital (Charleston Memorial? I don't remember). The hospital wrote "extreme intoxication" on my file. They didn't check anything else, most notably my raised heart rate. I was sent home with a mark from the IV and nothing else.

Not only was the situation distressing and expensive but it stayed on my record for years. It made it difficult to get insurance because of my "substance abuse." I'm so glad that someone is paying attention to what's happening at downtown bars.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

Sigh, we already went through this last round with Boeing. WTF is up Boeing with all the propaganda constantly once again to the general public? That TV ad is moronic. That P & C "opinion" piece yesterday by your P & C boot licking lackey was the biggest pile of horse shit yet. Just like last time, who are those BS ads aimed at? Are your employees sheeple that must be led? Have they no cognitive ability to make choices? Can you not bribe them with small raises? Perhaps you may want to consider paying them a little closer to what their Seattle counterparts make? Our cost of living is just as high as Seattle in Charleston (or it feels that way). The more Boeing squawks, squeaks and flops around the more we smell something bad. No ads on TV or in print and none of us would even notice y'all, except for when we pass you on our way to the airport. Most of us could give a good rats ass about your Union battle, keep it internal. Talk among yourselves and quit bothering the rest of us. We got our own problems.

Re: “Attorneys for Michael Slager ask that his statements to investigators be excluded from federal trial

As we've said before, why are police investigative tactics suddenly bad when they are used against police?

Slager would make a fine addition to the Trump administration, not wanting people to use his own words against him. And mark my words, one of two things is going to happen. Either our lovely new AG is going to press on federal prosecutors to drop the case, or if he is eventually convicted, he will be pardoned.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

I think it's good for the workers' fight to be made public. If they are successful, maybe it will inspire and help other groups become engaged in collective bargaining. I understand unions are not popular here, but collective bargaining is more than just lazy people wanting more money for less work. It's about ensuring safe and ethical working conditions and protections against corporate intimidation and malfeasance in addition to compensating people in a more reasonable manner. If corporations like Boeing want to continue to be subsidized by the government and taxpayer for their operations and losses, they can afford to utilize more their profits on their worker's qualities of life, while still making millions and billions of dollars for themselves.

Re: “A letter from an Iranian American to Charleston

@Delana - why does he describe himself as half-Iranian, half-Latino instead of 100% pure-beef American? Because 100% pure-beef Americans in general don't let him forget it. "Immigrants are ruining this country. Muslims are ruining this country. Latinos are ruining this country. Sharia law! Jobs! Illegals!"
"Hey, I'm an immigrant, and a Muslim, and a Latino..."
"WHY WON'T YOU JUST ACCEPT BEING AN AMERICAN."

Put yourself in someone else's shoes. It isn't that hard.

Re: “A letter from an Iranian American to Charleston

"Since when did loving your country & being patriotic become so taboo"

There is nothing wrong with loving your country. There is a huge problem with being blind to its faults. The people who created this country were pretty clear on their thoughts regarding fear being used to strip away freedoms. And they established a very intricate system of checks and balances to make sure rights were preserved.

Our current administration seems to have no interest in, or doesn't understand that. Trump wants to rule by decree and try to silence and intimidate anyone who tells him no. We aren't even 100 days into the administration and how many things have already been proven that Trump and his advisers have lied about? They are constantly using fear and misinformation so people will easily surrender the rights you claim to love. That is not freedom. That is nothing to love or be patriotic about.

Re: “Boeing workers may soon vote on decision to unionize

While I appreciate Boeing's local presence (except for the free infrastructure and tax-exempt status), I have grown tired and weary of the constant barrage of tit-for-tat on the public airwaves. I, as a non-Boeing affiliated member of the public, would like to suggest we have one more vote; put to the public instead of the private yea/nay voters within the ranks of Boeing. I say we vote to ban public ads related to union voting. I, in no way, am affected by the vote except to have to deal with the unending onslaught of hateful ads. Boeing and the IAM need to keep their pleas WITHIN the walls of Boeing. VOTE ALREADY, STFU AND LEAVE THE PUBLIC OUT OF IT!
