Ima, typical! Do and think as I do or shut up and go away. So open minded and tolerant of other opinions. So inclusive.

Re: “Did your neighborhood vote for Trump or Clinton? A look at Charleston County precinct results

One reason Hillary won the urban votes is because so many people who live in urban areas are on "public assistance" . . . otherwise known as welfare. The urban Hillary supporters need to be careful about who they attack. Hillary supporters may have all the welfare checks . . . but the Trump supporters out in the country have most of the food and ammunition.

Interesting how areas surrounding some of the whites schools in CCSD voted Trump. Seems like the areas known to have more wealth were voting to get that Trump tax break.

Vito and Foghorn, I notice you're only other comments are about bars, so I suggest you find a good one, crawl in and leave the heavy thinking to those capable.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

people are predicting how a Trump Presidency will act - at this point that is ridiculous. The most important predictor we have is this: He completely changed his rhetoric in the last 10 years. His campaign contradicted every policy he espoused in the past. Over the course of the campaign he told every single crowd what he thought they wanted to hear, often contradicting a previous campaign stop. His campaign's only, ONLY purpose was to con enough people to get himself elected. Most of his hot-button promises are things that a President is not able to do and I'm sure he knows that. The man is a pathological liar so at this point who knows what he's going to do?

In nearly every state, Hillary won the urban vote, while Trump won everywhere else.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

The weather predictors for Hurricane Matthew couldn't even get it right a day before it came to Charleston but we're suppose to destroy our economy and throw people out of carbon creating jobs while ruining their lives because corrupt, politically motivated "scientists" and their flawed models says so?

Sorry, I don't believe it, neither do I believe in Santa and the Easter bunny.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

Thank you so much for writing this. I'm terribly worried about what will happen now with the selfish will of Donald Trump at the helm. I pray the rest of the world can continue to fight climate change without us as i'm quite certain we won't be participating. It's a very sad day for those who love and want to preserve the earth for generations to come. To Trump supporters, If we don't save this beautiful world, your coal mining job won't really matter.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

The founders got it right. ALL states deserve consideration when electing the president. Were we to move to using the popular vote only, a candidate could campaign in the ten largest metro areas of the country ONLY with no regard whatsoever for the entirety of the rest of America and win.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

Which Trump supporter was not born to a woman, married a woman, has a daughter or a sense of justice regarding sexual assault. By no means a HRC supporter but as a man cannot understand looking the other way regarding a crime against a woman.

Thankfully ~ Junk science agenda items we won't have to listen to or deal with any longer:


1. Global Warming
2. Carbon Tax
3. Wind Farms
4. Reasons not to drill for oil
5. Reasons not to support fracking
6. Reasons not to support coal mining

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

No matter who the president was to be; Hillary or Trump, the issue with East Bay and other Charleston streets, is a municipal issue, not a national one. Whenever you live in a city that is essentially below sea level, flooding will be a problem. The street level is actually much higher now than it was when the city was founded. Take a tour of the Exchange bldg (Where George Washington once spent the night) and get to the warehouse level that used to be open for deliveries, and note that it is now below street level.

So you live "on a street carved out of a coastal forest in the early 1970s" and you still get the print edition of the daily paper. Please do not lecture me.

Re: “What does the conversation on climate change look like under President Trump?

Off topic but......At least we know that a hair more than 50% of the American voting population is not deplorable - HRC carried the popular vote with the electoral college thingy snatching the Presidency away. This is a sad commentary when bigotry and divisiveness wins out over love, inclusiveness, dignity and sanity. Get ready all non-bigots for they are coming after us. Welcome to the Divided States of America!

Re: “Competency evaluation delays trial of Dylann Roof

I have trouble calling Dylan Roof a Christian. Someone willing to walk into a house of God and kill 9 people is obviously not Christian. I would bet that most White Christians would be right up there with you in saying he deserved the death penalty for his crime, should the court give him that sentence.

No legit benefit to killing this person? I have yet to see a convicted murderer who has been executed go out and kill another person afterward. It may not be a deterrent, but it stops the behavior.

It is too costly? The cost is due to the legal wrangling that goes on the entire time the criminal is on death row. The actual cost of the execution is not much at all. However, consider that many who have had their death sentence drop, still serve their lives behind bars. A persons best chance of exoneration is while they are on death row, not while sitting in jail for life. Once off death row, their case is generally forgotten (hence the lower cost).

We get it wrong too often? The rate of wrongful conviction is something like .027% While 1 wrongful execution is terrible, it does not nullify the punishment being appropriate for those who deserve it. Estimates of wrongful execution range from .027% to 4.1% Looking at the highest value, this amounts to about 75 wrongful executions since 1973 or 1.6 per year. The assumption that the executed was ENTIRELY innocent, is untrue, as many supposedly 'innocent' people have been in and out of prison their entire lives. Further, many 'experts' have reviewed execution cases and deemed them innocent without benefit of an actual official review of the case in the hopes of supporting their view of executions being wrong (essentially a jury of 1), and usually despite the convicted having several times being convicted of the same crime prior to the actual execution being carrier out by a jury of 12.

Re: “Go to events where everyone won't look like you

Is the author saying white folks need to hang out with black folks more often? How about a River Dogs game, or a high school sports event? The 4th of July Celebration at Riverfront Park in North Charleston is an event that has all ethnicities cheek to jowl having a grand time together. How about the Coastal Carolina Fair? (Probably too low brow for the author) or the Holiday Parade down King Street? Everyone comes out and everyone comes together for these events. I don't get the author's point. A bit preachy and a bit elitist IMHO.

Re: “Calling Myself Out

Thank you for this! As one of those women wearing a sexy/slutty costume, the highlight of my night was when a guy on the dance floor treated me with respect (when my skirt started to ride up at one point he even tugged it down for me). I dress that way because on the rare occasions that I go out I love my body and the way it feels when other people appreciate my looks, plus I get overheated really quickly when I dance if I cover up more.

I know that some people are going to judge me for my outfit, but the worst is the guys who think it is OK to touch me wherever they want. If someone grabs my chest or puts their hand up my skirt, I walk away (and every time I go out, at least one guy will try this). The man who treated me with respect? He got my number.
