Re: “Thanks to Sarah Palin, we now know that Hunter Thompson faked his own death

Tina Fey should go down in history as one of the most successful political satirists of all time. Her work as Sarah was not only funny it doomed Sarah Palin's political career. Ensuring that no one will ever take Palin serious again.
Despite the fact that Sarah is an intelligent woman... its ridiculous to even mention as liberals have a field day any time her name is mentioned.

Re: “Stegelin: Gov. Haley's poetry slam

A political cartoonist, whose work would only exist because he or she took money from the state, is not free.

All arts and artists will work on their passion regardless of money from the state. So it will never cease to exist or influence society. If your driven to create.. purely on the need for money, than you might want change your focus.
There is an open and free market for all creators to operate and find a market for their passions.

The state could always just make sure you have a job and money but of course freedom goes out the window..
after all what state wants to pay those that rebel against it?

Painting murals honoring the high overlord and writing anthems to his glory may keep you creating for a living... but at what cost?

Luv this promo! It's brilliant how she gently tweaks liberals. While hipsters stand on the side of the road, a patriotic woman is going places :)

Re: “Michelin head puts Haley in an uncomfortable spot

I think that the real irony here is that a higher gas tax will likely actually hurt Michelin more in the long run than if they had simply fronted the money to personally revamp the roads. Those living with poverty are already far less likely to purchase new tires or replace aging tires in a timely manner. A gas tax hike will make them push their rubber even further, and virtually eliminate their consumption of Michelin tires. Shockingly, I don't think Selleck has thought his cunning plan all the way through.

Re: “The Agenda: Uber drivers still working after order to stop; Haley committee's big haul; Gregorie is in

And of course, if any Uber driver gets tagged for picking up riders illegally it's the Mayor's fault because he's a Reactionary asshole, right?

Re: “Charleston is still a long ways off from embracing true hip-hop culture

I think the main point is, there is alot of good hip hop music out there meaning, insightful lyrics, good production and integrity. But unfortunately we dont here this on the radio and since that's where the majority of individuals get their music, their reference point for hip hop is awful...Im a hip hop head, rather I'm a music head, I listen to everything from Dead Kennedy's to Dela Soul, this being said I appreciate good music, live music or sampled based music(when it's done creatively)..Good hip hop as opposed to RAP in my opinion would be artist like, MF DOOM, The Roots, J Cole, Lupe Fiasco, Common Sense, Shabazz Palaces and I could go on and on...Like all music there is a commercial side (RADIO) and there is a underground true head scene. Granted I am a little older so Im sure that im not as up on it as I use to be, but I try to keep up with whats fresh and up and coming...

Re: “Charleston is still a long ways off from embracing true hip-hop culture

A few of us have done our part! We held shows of local talent and pushed new music in their face. Some of us are even giving the music side of it a good name! There isn't a market here in Charleston. But hip hop is underground! I'm ok with that. We will keep on weather or not it's played in a nightclub.

Re: “The Agenda: Haley sworn in; Clyburn reads poem into congressional record; Ford: "I ain't no damn crook"

"The owners of Nason Medical Center will pay $1 million to settle allegations by federal prosecutors that the urgent care center chain submitted false claims to Medicare, Medicaid, and TRICARE..."

Fraud, wastefulness and inefficiency in private healthcare? Unpossible! But yet single payer would be an abomination because of fraud, wastefulness and inefficiency. If you think it's expensive now, wait til its free LOLZ am I right libs?!

Hip-hop culture? What a joke.

There is no culture in the US other than commercial culture. Period.

Re: “Charleston is still a long ways off from embracing true hip-hop culture

If you're waiting for the "powers that be" to embrace hip-hop, you've got a long wait. The establishments that "siphon off our cool for their own financial benefit" are no more committed to Katy Perry than they are Mystical. They're committed to their bottom line. It's up to the hip-hop community to establish itself in Charleston. Step up.

Re: “Charleston is still a long ways off from embracing true hip-hop culture

This was a great read KJ! Looking forward to more from you. The culture of hip hop is like a big tree with branches extended and created subcultures. It's kind of complex to determine what of these branches should be immersed with the base or intertwined with the root. It's a complex formula that hasn't been perfected (not in Charleston anyway).
