Re: “Alison Piepmeier, CofC professor and writer, dies after long battle with brain cancer

A huge loss for us all and a real lesson to me of how to live a life worth living. We are promised only the breath we are breathing now... Not five minutes or five days on. I think Alison understood that and lived that way: doing the things she needed to do and saying the things she needed to say. A tearful farewell and a prayer of thanksgiving for the life she lived and the love she gave!

Re: “Alison Piepmeier, CofC professor and writer, dies after long battle with brain cancer

While I didn't agree with many of Alison's beliefs, I have always respected her willingness to stand up and fight for causes she believed in. My full sympathy to her family and friends, and also to the rest of us because too often these days people are only willing to whine and complain about things. We need more Alisons with the balls to fight for everyone else

Re: “Where are the guards for the rest of the city's public restrooms?

I see both sides of the argument for public restrooms. Yes, since we're luring thousands of tourists here we should accommodate them, but, on the other hand, since the vast majority of the Tourist District is private residential is it fair to ask residents to welcome a view of public restrooms from their front porch?
As for the column, to suggest that the guard is placed there to placate SOB residents is asinine. Any serious person knows the potential horror-stories every school faces these days. Any credibility I was willing to give the columnist was wiped away by this Chris Haire attempt at smart-assery.

"...I'm impartial, unbiased, and that's the way it's supposed to be. If people were doing what I am doing, maybe people would trust the media more."

100% Agreement.

Re: “Where are the guards for the rest of the city's public restrooms?

It is hard to believe that after decades of Charleston doing a figurative full-court press on tourism promotion that we're still scratching our heads on the issue of restrooms. It isn't a problem that demands bleeding-edge innovation and mountains of design and testing, after all. I'm glad that people have taken up this issue seriously.

Re: “Stegelin: Bias all the way down

Trump "cusses" Gold Star families, American prisoners of war, American Generals, foreign heads of state a President has to work with, reminds 2A wackos they have violent remedies to stop Clinton (like is still alleged for Obama even after 7+ years in office) from 'taking away' their guns, legal and illegal Mexicans, Muslims, Black's who want to stop being hunted down and shot or jailed like animals, the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, encourages followers to violence and claims he'd like to "punch' dissenters at his rallies and speakers at the Democratic Nat'l Convention 'in the face", lies about Ted Cruz and his dad (the Kennedy Killer!), the Supreme Court, a respected American judge who happens to be of Hispanic descent, 50 former National Intelligence leaders, calls the Electoral System rigged, screws thousands of small and medium sized businesses out of $millions declaring bankruptcy 4 times while making $millions in profits, hires illegals to work his casinos, lies constantly, lies constantly, lies constantly, still accuses Obama of not being a US citizen (Birther, ha ha ha!) and a Muslim, dismisses the Speaker of his own Party and any GOP Senator and Congressperson who can't support his racism and misogyny, praises 2 tyrannical foreign Dictators who jail and execute dissenters, thinks women serve the nation best while on their knees making men happy, invites a foreign government to hack the computers of the leading Presidential candidates opposition Party, doesn't know Russia INVADED Crimea ... and the list goes on, BUT ...

The Clinton's stole furniture so Hillary is unfit for office!

HRC has been accused and investigated how many times (20, 30, 40?) and never been charged with any crimes. But yea, accusations prove beyond a doubt Hillary is a liar. I bet your wife cheats on you, so she must be a tramp, right? Or is that a Trump?

P.S. The House committee on government reform, led by Republican congressman Dan Burton, issued a report in 2002 that elucidated the many faults with the record-keeping processes for gifts and recommended reforms – and two items the Clintons turned in were actually returned to them in the end.

P.P.S. How many multi-million dollar GOP witch hunts, conspiracy theories, and false accusations will it take before Cheeto releases his tax returns? Yea, the rules don't apply to Cheeto. Cheeto Jesus come to save yo ass, Bro, so he gets a pass!

Re: “Stegelin: Bias all the way down

Trump cusses when he stubs his toe, and its all over the media. Meanwhile:

Wikileaks states that the DNC staffer mysteriously killed was the leak who released the emails saying they sabotaged Sanders. Very little coverage.

More emails that Hillary says never existed, released. Very little coverage.

Father of the Orlando killer seen at Hillary conference. Very little coverage.

Have we all forgotten 'Travelgate', 'Sniper fire in Bosnia', 'White house theft of $190,000', 'Whitewater scandal', 'Clinton Foundation Scandal', and the 'Tyson foods scandal'? Yeah, very little coverage.

But , no bias, I'm sure of it.

Re: “Aquarium worker allegedly tries to sabotage life-support systems

We set up a camera to catch a thief stealing the coffee money people donate to buy coffee at work, and WE almost got arrested for putting a camera up in an area not labeled as being under Surveillance.

Re: “Aquarium worker allegedly tries to sabotage life-support systems

There is a reason we had pirates hung on the Battery. For this person, I would suggest a public whipping for all to see. To hurt those animals in the tank is a horror.

Re: “The South's intentional ignorance encourages groups like the Secessionist Party

The most interesting part of the flag displays at The Battery are the not one but two incidents this year resulting in arrests of tolerant leftists who stole from and assaulted people they disagreed with.

Because theft and violence are wrong, except if someone says something you don't want to hear.

MatC - looked like you picked up two more devoted fans and followers for your fan club with this commentary. G & G is a idiot magazine for idiots from off. I do like my Southern Living though, its got recipes that I always say Imma gonna make that but don't and I like Rick Bragg. Forget the flag, do not screw with Southern Living, my Grandma will come back and kick your ass.

Re: “It's time to bring back slavery

You know what? Slavery will never happen again. Let's just get that out of the way. No president or presidential wanna be will even touch that subject. Why? Because said candidate will be considered a complete and udder joke. Not just here in the United States, but in the eyes of the World. Next, those words that are on the statue of liberty hahaha. France might as well come back and take it back. Do you think the American people would actually let that B.S happen, no way. For every 1 racist , there are hundreds who oppose it. You think there's protest now. Nah pal, those are just parades compared to what will happen then. There's going to basically be bloodbaths in the streets. Next, who do you think would actually enforce that? The military or the Police, that's a non issue. The military already said that they would go against Trump ,and besides you really think that the U.S. armed forces will let anyone fuck with their soldiers and sailors and pilots, ha military coup. The United States will become a joke in the eyes of the World. The human rights commission will beall over this one. So for those who are too lazy or fat to do their own shit and want a slave to do it, get a fucking life. Oh and as far as the whole welfare thing, you are really dumb. First of all the foodstamp program is the single biggest consumer of the American farmer, do you think the food stamp program would even still be here if it was mainly blacks using it? According to the United States Department of Agriculture (the agency who runs the program) 2014 stats are as follows, 40.2 percent are white , 25.7 percent black , 10.3 percent hispanic ,2.1 percent asian , 1.2 percent native american. Those are the facts jack. Get over that.

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

Tupper, thanks for the apology. I do disagree with LGBT, however, I try not to make personal attacks. Too many side with you on the issue for me to believe I am the only person who is correct. I have an opinion on the topic, nothing more.
