Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

I've posted this before and I'll probably post it again later, but the test made was the worst case, installing the bike lane that nobody uses. It still only had a 1 minute adverse effect on the transit time over the bridge, imagine if everyone within biking distance of the bridge took a bike instead of driving.

Re: “Vote? No.

Granted the choice isn't great this year. Hillary is not exactly transparent. But Trump is dangerous. He is clueless about the constitution; he is an ego maniac who bashes John McCain, other veteran heroes. He has an economic plan which is a disaster from the 10 trillion dollar deficit caused by his tax cuts for the wealthy, to deporting 12 million illegals, to favoring protective tariffs. He is a compulsive liar; i.e. no relationship with Putin when for 3 years he bragged about the relationship; his backers didn't remove the Ukraine plank from the republican platform; it is a real Purple Heart medal not a copy; he is worth 8 billion; the list goes on and on. He wants to monitor mosques and ban muslims. He is a national security nightmare as judged by every national security expert whom I have heard speak.
Clinton's Supreme Court appointments will overturn Citizens United, one of the most destructive decisions in Supreme Court history. She is stable which Trump is not; she's steady which Trump is not; she is knowledgeable which Trump is not; she is not thin skinned and she is not a bully; she is experienced which Trump is not.

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

Complete the Mark Clark as an expressway, not as a parkway.

NO on the Sales tax referendum and all future ones until 526 is approved, funded, and moving forward!

Put it on the ballot as a separate question, no advisory, its toothless.

Sue the SIB and get the money, pursue alternate funding, such as a toll.

You have until Nov.7th.

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

The 3 mile long James Island Connector was built for $206 million (2016 dollars) and a road the same length could connect 526 to Johns Island. So why is the County wanting to spend $195 million on Main Road when we could just build the Johns Island Connector? Fixing Main road does nothing to get Johns Island traffic out of West Ashley or James Island, forces people to still drive miles in the wrong direction, and does nothing for overcrowding on Savannah Highway.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

I've read the blotter section of the 'Charleston City Paper' for years and finally decided to start reading the rest of the articles contained therein. Frankly, after reading nothing but crap for months supporting LGBT, Brady campaign, BLM, and Socialist political rhetoric, I give up, and will go back to reading the one section that I find I can enjoy in this paper, The Blotter.

$150 in gold coins stolen? Must not have been very big coins considering gold is $1350 an ounce at the moment.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

My Name is Lee Anne Leland. I am co-facilitator of the adult transgender support group and am on the board of the youth LGBTQI group, We Are Family. I have first hand knowledge of the struggles these young people go through and I also see the strength they have as they face a room full of adults and address a school board about their concerns. I would have never had the courage to do what they do when I was their age. Take a moment and go to www.waf.org and see all we do on a shoestring budget. And we would not mind if you happened to hit the donation link.

Re: “The Agenda: Haley and Sanford reject Trump comments; Slager and Roof attorneys prep; Sales Tax Holiday coming up

I'm not a Republican, I'm a registered independent. However, I think this is valid input. The Republicans will do well to pave the way for Niki Haley next time around if they want a viable candidate.

And to the point of not giving the men and women in uniform the respect they deserve, he used their "honor" and lied again to prop himself up as some kind of super-natural patriot. He exclaims to have been a participant in the "phenomenal" draft lottery where he could have been called up, but he did not due to the "luck of the draw". No, that is a lie because it is documented (by Selective Service) that he already had "earned" a medical exemption more than a year before the draft lottery began in December of '69. He knew (knows) that he could never have been called because of it. No mas pantalones! Lie to me once, shame on you, lie to me twice and we're done.

Only Graham has said he won't support trump....thank you Lindsey for having at least an ounce of respect for diversity. And as outspoken against trump's overt bigotry as Haley, Sanford and Tim Scott are, their hypocrisy shows when they continue to state they will vote for trump and his overt bigotry. Why? Because apparently it's better to have a nazi (Hitler had his supporting citizenry, too) running the country than a woman (er, sorry Nikki), right?

Re: “Delegate blog: "I’ll be proud to tell my children how I helped elect the first female president"

A complete cad/ BULLY:
"Now because of your fire marshal, who I am not a fan of, he's probably a Democrat, probably a guy than doesn't get it, I'm going to go into the other room and say hello to people that didn't get your location," (Furor) Donald Trump said at the end of Friday's speech.

Fire Department's response:
“The Colorado Springs Professional Firefighters would like to publicly support the decisions by the Colorado Springs Fire Department on July 29 in not allowing over occupancy of the auditorium during Candidate Donald Trump’s speech. Colorado Springs firefighters know exactly what we are doing – we are professionals and we take our jobs very seriously. Occupancy levels are set to protect the public’s safety and we find it unfortunate that Trump’s campaign would question our judgment, expect us to break the law or waiver from our mission to protect our community.”

Is there anyone safe from his h@te?

Re: “The Agenda: Spring-Cannon conversion delayed; Chs. schools cut arts funding; Secessionists' 'Retaliation'

"to ensure their efforts are not "relegated to a small corner of history labeled ‘treason and slavery.'"

Yeah, it's really not fair that people who waged war against the United States of America in order to keep their slaves get stuck with that reputation.

Re: “Delegate blog: "I’ll be proud to tell my children how I helped elect the first female president"

Both dem and rep candidates are big bullshitters. Trump is actually a bullshitter and a oompa lumpa megalomaniac. Clinton is just a simple bullshitter. I am voting for the bullshitter least likely to have us in World War III. So its Clinton for me. On the bright side, at least I can make fun of Bill for 4 years. I got a million Bill BJ jokes. Hey did you hear about the Bill Clinton Memorial Day Sale? All pants half off. Har Har Har. Hello, hello, is this thing on.
