That Firefighter Jamie Brock is a true hero and all of us could take a lesson from his bravery. Somebody starts shooting somebody tackle them ,hit them, run them over,shoot ,stab,seriously injure with a stick!!!
Anything, just stop running away from them. That feeds the psychos power . His actions saved a lot of young lives, the more this happens the more we need heroes to stop it. Brave men and women who act fast and at great risk. The more of these out there the less psychos will think they can get away with it.
This is not the land of the flee its the home of the brave.
I'm not saying don't be smart and situationally aware just dont be a chicken shit either.
He should get a freaking statue in his honor.
God Bless America and God bless this guy and everyone who acted so bravely to protect these children.
Please pray for the injured.
I'm all for ensuring that the carriage tour companies are held to high standards of humane and proper care of their animals. It isn't 1890 any more; horses don't need to be worked into the ground, after all. But it is a practice that can be done properly and likely is for the most part in our city On the other hand, given that Mr. Cohen makes his actual (and prodigious by his own account) living selling the delectably seared flesh of former livestock, I wonder how committed he is to animal welfare if it came down to eliminating his own industry's lifeblood.
If traffic downtown is the primary concern, then there are major systematic changes that could be implemented to reduce the number of cars entering the peninsula daily.
Sexism at it's finest:
I agree with you in some respects, however the person who pointed out that the horses would be killed if the carriage tours ended is correct. Rather than ending the practice all together, I wish the carriage tour owners would take the horses off the streets from 12-5 in the summer months or whenever it's 90 degrees or more. At that temperature, the pavement is probably at least 110, too hot for the horses.
Additionally, I would love to see fewer cars, perhaps making King Street pedestrian-only? Susan Sellers
Lets make a deal. The horses can stay IF y'all can get rid of the damn buckeyes, especially the jumbo sized new balance wearing ones. I'll even quit yelling at all y'all when the damn things let loose with a 20 gallon wizz in front of my house if you do that.
DUDE! If the sea rises 4.5 feet, I'll be creek front with a deep water dock!! I'm selling my Toyota and buying an SUV. This weekend, I'm going to bust open cans of freon!! This can't happen fast enough. Unfortunately, the creek hasn't risen a bit in the ten years that I've lived in my house, so I doesn't look like it's going to happen :(
Tupper, no more copying and pasting article excerpts, please.
He manufactures nothing in the US but screams we should bring manufacturing back to the US. Both sides of his mouth run-on independently while he violates embargos to make himself more of a one-percenter:
REPORT: Trump Violated US Trade Embargo On Cuba
September 29, 2016 2016 Election, Business, Scandal
Newsweek reports: http://www.newsweek.com/2016/10/14/donald-…
A company controlled by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, secretly conducted business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency despite strict American trade bans that made such undertakings illegal, according to interviews with former Trump executives, internal company records and court filings.
Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.
The payment by Trump Hotels came just before the New York business mogul launched his first bid for the White House, seeking the nomination of the Reform Party. On his first day of the campaign, he traveled to Miami, where he spoke to a group of Cuban-Americans, a critical voting bloc in the swing state. Trump vowed to maintain the embargo and never spend his or his companies’ money in Cuba until Fidel Castro was removed from power. He did not disclose that, seven months earlier, Trump Hotels already had reimbursed its consultants for the money they spent on their secret business trip to Havana.
Randall Floyd, if Ron Liberte really loved Obama and Hillary, he wouldn't be fat shaming women like Trump does. What is it with anti carriage people and fat shaming? Are skinny people not allowed to be tourists?
Ron Liberte — BLESS YOUR HEART. My family hails from Ohio. When I next visit Charleston, be careful that I don't put my three inch high heel in your backside. (After I take a carriage ride and eat a pound of shrimp grits washed down with RC Cola, of course.)
shut up Ron liberte, have you ever had one nice thing to say besides you love Obama and Hillary
Trump is purely for the Christians. All others need not apply:
yes, obama started as a community organizer and now spends his days hobbnobbing in country clubs fueling his life with corporate and special interest money." a man whose life experience much more closely reflects the lives of many south carolinians", yep those pesky southern addicts and criminals. Well said
Mr. Liberte's HATRED is not reasonable grounds for a ban. It seems he would also like to ban all tourists, in spite of the revenue they bring to Charleston, especially larger citizens wearing Summer attire who come from Ohio. I would suggest banning the HATE not the horses.
What hubris? It's time we rid our society of pompous elitists whose anthropomorphic ideology is doing more damage to animals and those who actually care for them then we can possibly imagine.
Thomas Dixon is a once in a lifetime candidate who would be real medicine for the ills which plague society and our legislative branch.
Forget the e-mails, the FBI needs to investigate Hillary for committing a murder on live TV.
Lots of pro carriage tour people in this thread, which is kind of funny. The people who keep utilizing this industry are the obnoxious fat-ass tourists wearing chunky white New Balances and cargo shorts who hail from Ohio and that in literally every other circumstance, everyone claims to loathe.
Well said. I am very impressed with Pastor Dixon. He really listens, speaks very well on the issues I hold dear, is fearless. It takes so much courage for a good man or woman to run for office. He has studied all the issues well. He is a must for our state and nation. He has worked hard for this opportunity to serve! Lets give him that opportunity.
