God is at it again.
This article is total propaganda to put more $$$$ in the pockets of the "MAN". If you are not an owner then you are a slave. It's really all about exploiting a new crop of laborers, always has been. First it was indentured white servants, then blacks, then women and now Mexicans and others of South America descent. Once the exploited group gets some political power, then it will be on to a different group for the "MAN" to exploit. Race does NOT matter to the "MAN", it's all about which group is the easiest to exploit. For the "MAN" who, criminally prostitutes Russian girls up in Myrtle to Coal Mining in the Appalachian Mountains, it's all about economics to the "MAN" and I say fuck the "MAN"!
"Talk about government interference with free enterprise."
I don't understand the marketing push that "good" food is food that is locally grown. Fresh local broccoli still smells like farts and tastes like ass. Why do I want to eat trash fish and small, fragile strawberries? No, I think I'd rather have the choice chops that actually taste good from whatever geographic area has a comparative advantage in producing those products rather than the parts of locally raised animals that require lots of dressing up in the kitchen to make palatable. You can keep your tripe.
Ever notice that the food at Husk never quite tastes as good as you expected?

Foreign workers' are here to work and send money home so they can have a better life when they return. Their wage scale is different, and that's one of the benefits to hiring them.
Perhaps they can't afford basic hipster staples like gourmet coffee and iPhones and that's fine.
Christ.....enough proselytizing and less Chris Haire. This is yet another offensive assault on the English Language.
I cannot conceive of God giving a rat's ass who wins the game and have always found people who pray in silence authentic in their faith, not exploitive of it. Football is a game folks...one's faith might be best fathomed with silent, yet engaged prayer...life and faith is no game. Let's stop mixing the two.....it is blasphemous at best.
Can't help it, I have to make a comment on the above article that Chris Haire posted in the Charleston City Paper concerning the way the Clemson football team shares their faith in Jesus Christ. Chris maybe you need to learn what it means to be a Christian. Its more than just winning games. There are Christians on every team and they pray to God. God is not a respector of persons, he loves everyone and he makes winners out of everyone by believing in Jesus Christ as their savior. He does care about what his children want but he cares more about where they will spend eternity. I admire the coaches, staff and football players that they are standing up for their faith in Jesus even in the loss of a game. They are still WINNERS!! I am a Gamecock fan and even though I wanted the Gamecocks to win I hold in very high admiration what the Clemson Tigers stand for in their faith. It is every sports teams goal to win games but you can't win every game. But what every team can do is play the best they can with a high standard of integrity and a high standard of good sportmans conduct which I have seen on the Clemson team. The bottom line is, it is every Christians job to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. We don't save people but we can introduce them to Jesus and show them how much life means when Jesus comes into your life. It doesn't mean all is going to be peaches and cream and it doesn't mean we will win every time but it does mean we have someone we can go to in prayer and he will help us through the hard times. I could write a lot more but I will stop here. Jesus loves you to Chris.
The person making $11K a year needs to show earnings of less than $500 more to qualify for the ACA and most likely be 100% subsidized. Be creative people! Heck I would report earnings from mowing lawns or picking up cans to make up the difference to be elllllllligible.
Eligible not elligible - Come on, run it through a spelling checker. Good news story, though. I hope everyone who needs to buy their own health insurance and is not comfortable with the website will find their way there.
I am truly at a loss for words with that last comment. Mr. Crabtree, if the thought of this guy being on your side of an issue doesn't give you pause, I don't know what could.
Essentially, educators in public school, and the media and entertainment businesses, are, by and large, atheistic. Unless you can call a bastardized form of socialism a religion. If it is promoting a "do under others as you would have them do unto you" philosophy, that would be commendable. But it does seem that in the eyes of many, some people are more equal than others because they break the mold. They preach "God is dead." But you will never hear them seriously suggest that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are dead. Too many teachers are females who have yet to have children or never will. If they are not atheist, they are certainly agnostic, and you can bet many are members of the ADC (Alcohol and drug cult) and you can find them at area bars most any night trying to get lucky.
Pretty good post, Mat, but you debunk a meme that really doesn't seem to have very deep roots in recent decades. I remember from my own fifth grade (c. 1950) experience, while preparing for our Thanksgiving plays, some smartass kid saying, sotto voce so as not to upset the teacher, "Great, if you wasn't an Indian", which was not an unusual feeling for most of us to have. The myth of "good" Pilgrim was already eroding. The First Thanksgiving story has been well debunked by writers such as James Loewen many years ago.
On the other hand, there seems social value in those old stories that tell not how it WAS, but how it OUGHT to have been. Or maybe not. A well balanced essay on the question appears in the latest issue of In These Times by John Eicher (of whom I had never heard).
AIDS is no longer a death sentence in developed countries. It is now a treatable disease.
Both of my children were born with the excellent care of the Charleston Birth Place midwives. I appreciate The Charleston City Paper taking interest in this issue and helping our collective voice concerning birth choices to be heard.
AIDS seems to be prolonging Earvin "Magic" Johnson's life.
"A country that cannot feed itself cannot defend itself," Chalmers says.
Of course they have no intention of paying these workers who will be helping to feed us a livable wage. If they were going to do that they would hire citizens.
It's been in my cd player since the day it was released...I don't plan on taking it out either!! These guys ROCK!!!

Wait, Clarkie, so is society's crumbling the fault of gay couples getting married or straight couples not getting married?
