Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

No counseling needed for Prong, because he's right. Also Imma roll on Ignatz. Ignatz threw the brick, everybody knows that. Even when you O-bey the police many times bad things happen to young brown & black men all over the USA every single day. "They" are not all the same. "They" are angry and rightfully so. "They" do not all throw bricks just as not all police are bullies & bigots. Until Black Lives Matter as much as White Lives, "they" gonna keep on going. Let's be really honest, all lives should matter equally - but in reality they just don't right now. I hope this changes in my lifetime.

"The BLM protesters appear to be just any of many groups who do not obey police commands, take matters outside of their permitted actions, and then have someone throw a brick at the cops."

You ever read much about the colonial revolution against Great Britain?

Re: “Charleston can't handle an influx of new residents

check the local highways. at times of the day the traffic is >20-30% container trucks. SC's plan? dredge the rivers so larger ships can load an unload. All while they enjoy the nation's lowest gas prices. it's not LACK of focus, it's no focus whatsoever. And as long as the Beach Company has a stranglehold on local development that's not going to change either.

Re: “Charleston can't handle an influx of new residents

Influx of new residence? Heck, Mayor Woolsey and his Town of James Island can't even come close to dealing with its obligations to its existing residence. Meanwhile he isn't he violating the promise he used to get elected by raising taxes. Why is lying to get elected not an ethics violation? Any fool can stay within budget if they can raise revenue by fiat. But while Woolsey is an economics professor, he doesn't seem to have a clue regarding the cost benefits of municiple services. That's if you could even call the Town a municipality. Essentially it is an oligarchy, run by upper class bureauracratic elitest that is not going bankrupt anytime soon. Except perhaps morally. Clearly its residents deserve better. That might happen if the Town would merge with the City of Charleston. But don't hold your breath on that one. It just makes too much sense.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

What a bunch of idiots, vying for the microphone to make themselves popular. Well, dumb asses, if you pass anything close to attempting to ban any "weapons with detachable clips" you'll all be looking for another job next election. That would definitely rank in the "death by stupidity" category.
Maybe we need some cleansing in the County Government, anyway.

The BLM protesters appear to be just any of many groups who do not obey police commands, take matters outside of their permitted actions, and then have someone throw a brick at the cops. Well, you stupid bastards, Charleston is not like Baltimore. Any more of this and you'll see the City Jail fill up quickly with your worthless asses, and your cases won't be heard until the next day. And anyone with a grain of intelligence (I doubt that exists) from the BLM (otherwise known as a Bowel Movement) would give up the guy who threw the brick if you ever want another permit to show your "cause" in Charleston. By the way, have you heard anything from that dumb "elder" from NAN on TV ? They said they wanted to "distance" themselves, but you don't hear anything on local news to prove it. They are all the same.

Re: “Giant oak falls inside College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Can't really blame the tree for wanting to get away from the whining snowflake generation in college now. This was once a place of critical thinking and challenging your opinions and ideas. Sadly, it's now a place of safe spaces and trigger warnings so these little kiddos don't get their feelings hurt or learn to think for themselves.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

Have any of these gun-grabbers ever seen the way a shotgun maims the target? Imagine that for a minute...imagine how much worse the carnage would have been at the Pulse nightclub and how much more those poor people would have suffered. No amount of "control" will ever stop an evil, determined heart.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

Let's ban "sports cars" while we're at it and arbitrarily define them as the ability to produce more than 200BHP and 15db of sound from the exhaust. I'm sure they kill lots of people each year.

Re: “Giant oak falls inside College of Charleston Cistern Yard

i wish, the first extrapolated principle of any new technology is first and foremost WAR. What do you think all of that consciousness research is these corporate entities do?

They develop the hell out of everything for war first, and then when its been used in every way possible to kill people it is released to the public as some kind of consumer good like "the internet". Or that aspartame rat poison in your diet coke

It is the same with FACEBOOK. First and foremost it is intelligence gathering for secret transnational entities called weapons dealers.

Re: “Giant oak falls inside College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Again this is not a TYPO. I know what an Arborist is, and I meant what I said.

The way this tree was killed the killer knew what he was doing. Only an Arborist could have known the best way to poison the tree slowly so that it looked like it died of natural causes. Do you think an arborist is going to turn down dirty money? They don't even take hippocratic oaths!

This tree was surrounded by controversy as big protests were started on the college campus USING FACEBOOK in order to protect it from being safely removed (before it fell over on its own).

COFC USES ITS STUDENTS LIKE GUINEA PIGS IN FACEBOOK COORDINATED SOCIAL EXPERIMENTS

I mean these kids were chaining themselves to these trees ect.. all because a facebook group told them to!

As a public institution the college of charleston has access to its students private FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS if the accounts are linked to their campus EMAILS.
COFC DOES GOVERNMENT RESEARCH ON HOW TO CONTROL THE MASSES using FACEBOOK.

They then sell the research to weapons factories like motorola aka GOOGLE.

ONCE AGAIN These stupid campus protests were organized and directed from facebook in order to stop these trees from being SAFELY REMOVED from the Cistern. (i believe they were created secretly by faculty, and im sure research was published)

Im sure the college of charleston sold it's research on starting campus protests through facebook to the war machine, and that research my friend was used to better create a "revolution/genocide" in Syria in order to compete with RUSSIA.

As long as you tell them your pro-Israel COFC will help you design any weapon you need.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

Well wouldn't that be unconstitutional? And would that mean I could drive to Berkeley county and get one? And what if I already own one they gonna come get it?
What a dose of pandering to public sentiment this is.
Heres another likely proposal for Charleston county lets pass an ordinance we all have to walk around naked at concerts and sporting events that way we don't have to worry about concealed weapons.
Or if your fifty pounds overweight you can only eat salad.
Or lets ban cigarette sales they kill a lot more people than these weapons.
Geez how stupid are they to think we are this stupid.

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

"Charleston County Council voted Thursday to consider a resolution calling for a ban on semi-automatic, high-capacity magazine weapons." - In other words, they voted to consider banning ALL semi-auto firearms, which have the ability to accept a detachable magazine.

This would outlaw ALL semi-auto handguns, as well as ALL semi-auto rifles/shotguns, which have the ability to accept detachable magazines.
