Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

Ill shut up when ISIS is no longer a threat to my people. This isn't just a war against the jews or muslims anymore. Its a war against all human kind. If you accept a little racism you accept it all. Compliance is guilt.

Will one of you puppets cut at least some of your strings and actually act like true PATRIOTS>>>REAL AMERICANS THAT put their lives on the line to END TYRANNY. Also work smart not hard. Don't waste your time trying to be "good" in the eyes of others. DO WHATS RIGHT.

BE REAL AMERICANS not zombies

Re: “SCE&G seeks yet another rate hike to fund a struggling nuclear project

We the People are waiting too long for a strong and effective way to end this SCE&G/SCANA scandal. Maybe there is a way to organize solidarity action with individuals (up to 700,000) to dispute these illegal overcharges?

Re: “SCE&G seeks yet another rate hike to fund a struggling nuclear project

After removing Confederate Flag SC Assembly shall remove SCE&G /A SCANA Company white-collar fraud with overcharging 700,000 customers using false claimed SC Base Load Review Act. There are over three million victims of this international multi-billion dollars scandal. Ones call this a “monopolistic slavery of 21st Century”

Re: “SCE&G seeks yet another rate hike to fund a struggling nuclear project

The SC Base Load Review Act CANNOT be a legal ground to collect the money from
SCE&G ratepayers because Jenkinsville VC Summer Units 2 and 3 nuclear plant CANNOT be a ”base load”. PERIOD. The simple “justice for all” shall return all billions of dollars to ratepayers. This is a white-collar crime similar to Enron scandal ended in 2001-2006.

Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

oh thats right...The city paper building is on the east side! LOL ha ha. Jimmy johns doesn't deliver to charleston city paper either, because the CITY PAPER OFFICE RESIDES IN THE SAME EAST SIDE THAT JIMMY JOHNS DOESN'T DELIVER TO BECAUSE it's next to a "POOR BLACK" neighborhood!

Im sure one of your "journalists" or staff tried to get lunch before from the office and found this out?
SO that means that CITY PAPER had to KNOW and not one of these crap journalists said a thing about it!

So dont blame racism when a college educated black man like yourself DIDN'T DO A THING TO PROTECT YOUR PEOPLE FROM ACTUAL RACISM. In your article you pat yourself on the back for hanging out around the actual organizeres that obviously didn't rub off on you.

Maybe you should straighten out your hat so the oxygen in your blood can get back to your brain.

Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

i wouldn't have to go on like this if CITY PAPER DID ITS JOB AS JOURNALISTS with their fancy educations and diplomas. PARROTS! NEOCOLONIALIST MAFIA RAG

Im the one who worked at jimmy johns and couldn't afford to get fired to expose this crap. You people are the ones supposed to be doing the job. Not promoting strip clubs and feel good stories about how Jimmy johns owners picked charleston because they love the people. I'll keep my eyes on the lookout for Jimmy johns Coupons in your worthless paper.

Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

For example. JIMMY JOHNS Downtown refuses to deliver to "BLACK NEIGHBORHOODS" on the east side of the penninsula. Even though it is more than willing to go even further than that for its deliveries to the "west side" of the penninsula near comfort inn right next to the VA HOSPITAL. Yet BLACKS CONTINUE TO POUR THEIR MONEY INTO JIMMY JOHNS ON GEORGE STREET>. Ok so we are allowing Jimmy johns to tell all the people on the east side they are too poor and black to get a delivery? I KNOW ITS RACISM. Does Jimmy johns advertise in city paper?

They must give city paper alot of money to keep quite on this. Maybe they bring you guys your lunch for free. Why do you not tell people about this>? Ohh thats right your too busy congratulating yourselves with pats on the back for marching. lol

Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

20,000 copies at a printing press is pretty easy and cheap to get done. I know i can take your paper. What would people who gave their blood sweat and tears to your company think (like Jim the beloved CP employee who just recently passed away) to see that it just became another FOX NEWS? You should be ashamed of yourselves for ruining something you did nothing to help build. Maybe instead of censoring me you should let people argue with me in these rooms if they are offended. Maybe then people would interact with your city paper more. Ohh thats right you are turning it into one big advertisement for the strip clubs, and got too busy to do your jobs as journalists and promotors of free speech. What is this facebook? I quit FACEBOOK 9 years ago for the same reason! Now im all about GOOGLE+! Google planet will bury your business and teach people to hate your worthless advertisement you call "feel good news"

Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

What i mean is i have decided to start my own newspaper with my small fortune. I think i am going to call it charleston shitty paper because it wont be a politically correct advertisement for restaurants. It will allow us to be "shitty" in speech like our forefathers promised us. It will allow us our true freedom of speech. LOOK FOR ADVERTS FOR MY STAFF SOON on craigslist.

You guys have some awesome writers like chris haire and mat catastrophe, but i realize they are probably even more censored than me when im simply in the comments section.

Even with these AWESOME writers I still think I can take your shitty company as a whole. Maybe one day i will even hire them away from you with a payraise!

The blotter during lunch is the only reason people even open your crap paper to begin with
We need a real paper that isn't afraid to tell the truth! CP IS more concerned with AD REVENUE

Im sorry if i am a little ANGRY about this. While i am not going to make this horrible tragedy about myself, i was a block away when it happened before the cops arrived and heard the gunshots.

It makes me angry too.

I dont care if cocaine or drugs/violence has been a part of our culture in the past. The point is they are educating us with big media so it remains in our future.

Re: “With the concerts and unity walks behind us, it's time to address our racial woes

WELL NOT IN CHARLESTON> YOU DONT HAVE TO HAVE A MARCH TO PROVE THAT we are not collectively RACIST HERE,

EVERYWHERE HAS PROBLEMS WITH racism or ETHNIC DIFFERENCES, but i have usually met only the best people of all colors while living here working together as friends.

THAT's the traditional idea of what it means to be a free american. That's why everyone wants to move here! I love the people of my city. EVEN those billion dollar corporations and their clowns couldn't lie and throw us back 80 years.


i am proud that charleston isnt in reality what john stewart and viacom tried to make us out to be. hateful racists. CHARLESTON SHOULD NOW SEE THE BIG FOUR MEDIA monopolies AS THE REAL ENEMY NOW.

Re: “SCE&G seeks yet another rate hike to fund a struggling nuclear project

In response to comment #1:

Describing nuclear as "dirty" is demonstrably false. US nuclear power has not caused a single public death and has never had any impact on public health. It also has negligible CO2 emissions.

Scientific studies which estimate the overall health and environmental impacts of various energy sources (e.g., www.externe.info/) actually show that nuclear's impacts are even less than solar's, although both are negligible compared to fossil fuels.

All energy sources have some net CO2 emissions (after accounting for all parts of the generation process), but nuclear's net CO2 emissions are negligible compared to fossil fuels, and similar to renewables. Lower than solar, in fact, and similar to wind. From the IPCC itself:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Life-cycle_greenhouse-gas_emissions_of_energy_sources

Solar is more expensive than nuclear, and doesn't generate power ~75% of the time. (With the necessary energy storage, it would be FAR more expensive.) In reality, we should do both (nuclear and solar). They compliment each other well. Any renewable generation should be used to replace fossil fuels, not nuclear.

Re: “Question #7: Making the cost of living align with wages in Charleston

Santa Fe raised the minimum wage to 10.51 and that only applies to county workers. If restaurants do that, expect a burger and fries to cost you $30. But thats only if there are any restaurants still in business

Re: “Question #7: Making the cost of living align with wages in Charleston

All avoided the pressing question. Consider that we are a foodie town, much of our tourism is food driven, ergo, many of our jobs are in the food industry. Yet even in the better restaurants, 12 an hour is top pay. Many start COOKS at $7.15 an hour. And cooks generally do not get 40 hrs a week. Even if "affordable" housing were 600 a month, it is still out of reach for 9.00 an hr. And good luck finding that.
These people want you to believe that there will be a build out of thousands of homes, with reasonable rents....RIGHT !! We are similar to Santa Fe, they raised the min. wage to 15.00, and the restaurants still prosper. Time for the 99% to get pissed off, and change things !

Re: “SCE&G seeks yet another rate hike to fund a struggling nuclear project

Let's see, SCE&G has a government sponsored monopoly, not always the best customer service, is not necessarily on the cutting edge of energy technology, isn't overly worried about efficiency, does whatever it can to self perpetuate and has the ability to change (that means raise) whenever it feels like it. Yeah, let's do the same thing with healthcare.
