Re: “Trigger warnings are an insult to students' intelligence

Trigger warnings are definitely one of the more annoying parts of the ever-evolving liberal philosophy. However I will take them any day over the conservative counterpart, pulling literal triggers on people who frighten or disagree with us, or happen to have a different skin color.

Re: “Trigger warnings are an insult to students' intelligence

Decades of trigger warnings preceding news stories, violent movies, and TV programming and all of a sudden, people need to lose their sh*t because professors give students a heads-up before class material. The end is nigh, oh my god! Censorship because someone previewed a lecture! Society is collapsing!

Re: “What can be done to fill the Eastside's grocery gap?

There is also a grocery delivery service that delivers to the downtown area and their prices are comparing with BiLo.
www.BerryD.Com is how they can access groceries and meal kits.

Re: “What can be done to fill the Eastside's grocery gap?

Good luck with that. BiLo's closest competitor was a higher priced Harris Teeter and they still couldn't generate enough sales in their neighborhood to make it worth staying open, so how can you expect another retailer to want to take over the space? these are businesses not charities. The neighborhood has spoken, BiLo listened, simple as that. The column speaks directly of a few local customers and I realize this will create hardship for some, but it takes a whole lot more than a few to keep the doors open. The last few times I was in the store it seemed like there were more employees than customers. You don't survive as a retailer like that.

Re: “How Charleston’s accommodations taxes are spent

so half goes to cops and meter maids, both of which MAKE money through tickets? so the fees pay the people we pay to charge us all more. and the money they all skim off us all goes to shore up a breakwall for the South of Broad millionaires. Great scam on the common non-government types who work and visit here. what a country.

Only ten years. Seems rather quick. I'm sure the free parking will disappear when it's "fixed"

Re: “Faith groups lead Moral Day of Action at Statehouse

"In addition to the national day of action, which includes marches on 30 state capitol buildings across the U.S., organizers are also asking faith leaders across the country to “preach and teach” in their places of worship at least two weekends leading up to Election Day in November, laying out what they believe citizens should demand from candidates and elected officials from the presidential race on down to local school board members."

Don't believe this is allowed:
"Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes."

Re: “The Agenda: S.C. schools underfunded by $4 billion since 2010; Chs. metro sees record exports; Dam laws debated

You can throw all the money you want a education but if the parents are as sorry as they are now, nothing will help. Its all about the parents. Kids in China do so well because their parents push them and are together, not because they have great classrooms. Our parents are split up and spoil the kids.

Shouldn't we be imprisoning the state legislators for illegally underfunding education? Otherwise nothing will get done, they will continue to break the law.

How about a follow-up. Out of the $6.5 billion in exports, what was the Boeing share, and if Boeing is left out how does this year compare to last?

Re: “CofC student faces charges of sexual exploitation of a minor

Cid95, you are so right! This sort of stuff has been going on at CofC for years, & it's been swept under the rug. I am so sick & tired of it!

Sadly, this sort of thing is so common that it's only local news. But if some knobs at The Citadel dress in halfass ghost costumes to perform a skit...
