I believe LGBT people should be able to work wherever and enjoy their lives however they want.
You began your article with a bit of a strawman. I don't think hardly anyone is going to let go of an otherwise good employee simply because they are gay. Do you realize how hard it is to find people that will even show up?
A more realistic scenario is the firing of a below average employee that happens to be gay. Then, former employee assumes discrimination and sues. In the end, the lawyers are the winners.
Leave the Cruising for the strip in Myrtle beach.
Leave the strippers & shore power alone!
"We put in on Facebook.... We don't know what else we could've done."
Seriously?! I wasn't aware that Facebook was an official mode of government communication. Total bull...
Excellent, Chris! You are spot on.
Ned, I'm not sure what publications you were reading, but I felt that both Thurmond and Byrd were treated with equal reverence upon their passing. Still, it should be pointed out that their treatment of their respective pasts wasn't exactly the same. Byrd said he was ashamed of his time in the KKK, and said "I apologized a thousand times ... and I don't mind apologizing over and over again."
Thurmond definitely distanced himself from the racist rhetoric of his run for President, and his attempt to filibuster the Civil Rights Act of 1957. He quieted down on the issue of race, but he never renounced his old views.
Spot on Chris. The right thrives on fear and hatred.
It appears the thieves get to keep your bike, unless you know THEY are the ones that took it, and you find the money to ransom it back. If you did that to the council's children, they'd scream. An honest person's bike is worth more than a thieves child.
Chris, as always, you are right on target.
I actually think this law could evolve into something positive for downtown Charleston. If there were easily-accessible bike corrals all over the city, then it would be win-win for every party. People would be able to park their bikes, get to where they need to go, and be able to do what they need to do, without having to worry about fines.
And the sidewalks look more organized, with no more unsightly bikes.
Good for everybody.
Right now the law is just a hassle.
I guess because a show about five heterosexuals eating a quiche just wouldn't have worked or been nearly as funny. The real question is why you feel threatened by it. It's a play. Come see it. You might enjoy it.
Saildude - Clearly you and others are clueless abut the current out of control violence in South Africa. Google is your fried, use it!!
Mandela was a violent man that embraced violence. Even the liberal LA Times wrote about it. http://www.latimes.com/world/worldnow/la-f…
Chris - People aren't calling Obama a communist, but he is without a doubt a socialist and openly advocates for wealth redistribution. Most progressives, however, are closeted communists or at the very least hardcore socialists that are willing to collude & sympathize with communists.
This reminds me of the deaths of Senators Byrd & Thurmond. The media bias was very real & clear. Thurmond was labelled a racist Dixiecrat while Byrd was lauded as a great humanitarian. Too bad for the left wing media that the truth was very different. Only one of those men was a vocal & active member of the KKK, and it wasn't old Strom.
Sounds like someone could make some good money opening up a bike valet service on that street
You're all over it with this one, Chris. Good stuff.
CIA - your reply doesn't fit the narrative. Please do over. Thx. :)
ENDA doesn't go far enough. My solution is the only way for the government to make sure people are safe and treated fairly!
Stop writing sad songs.
No need for anything to "play out." Just let some folks talk and it comes right back in to play. Nelson Mandela "cut up babies?" Where the heck did they get THAT from?
Equality of opportunity (which clearly have in the US) may not deliver equality of results.
Trying to legislate equal outcomes is ridiculous. Note - to succeed economically you might have to leave your comfort zone. It might be difficult.
Joseph Gadberry, did you vote for Obama? Something tells me you didn't like him long before he ever set foot in the White House. Why is that?
LMFAO Alan is right. More of the same. Race card is so 2000. People dislike Obama because he sucks as a president and is ruining our country. Not to mention a perpetual liar. But that does not make us racists, because we hate his white half too.
