"But a report out last month from the Center for Rural Affairs (CFRA) illustrates quite a different reality: The percentage of eligible people relying on SNAP is higher in rural areas than it is in urban areas. CRA found that nearly 86 percent of eligible rural residents receive SNAP benefits, compared with nearly 73 percent of eligible urban residents."

We always said "It can't happen here." Looks like we were wrong.

Re: “GALLERY: Anti-Trump protest converges on Marion Square

Just in. Trump imperils trade with China with possible direct impact on iPhone sales, US automobile sales, and BOEING sales as orders would be replaced by Airbus orders. Further, US soybean and corn imports would be halted. And exchange students could be impacted as well. OOPS!

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

I completely disagree with you. While CORE definitely was a blend of the sounds of other bands, they really grew leaps and bounds peaking with tiny music...... Scott was great at reinventing himself and growing as a musician as successful rock icons tend to do. And what is truly great to me is how honest his voice is, he sings of many painful events in his life so openly and candidly and it speaks to me as it has to many others I am sure. I suggest you listen to his solo material like 12 bar blues and happy in glosses..... barbarella and missing Cleveland are 2 incredible songs!!

Re: “GALLERY: Anti-Trump protest converges on Marion Square

Trump's plans should rightly worry if not outright imperil a lot of Americans. However, nothing will come directly from these protests unless the energy is ported into political action. Not mere activism, but action to organize the Democratic party in a lot of states and start building a candidate base for the future. SC Dems are a joke in general, poorly run and usually only making headlines for bad reasons. If there is this level of passion to change that course, long-term benefit may be produced.

Even if you are a Republican, you can't look at the roads, schools, and almost every objective ranking of this state and say "yeah, one-party rule is keeping this state government running tight, clean, and honestly." When they know that we will hand the keys to whatever person with an (R) next to their name that they trot out, they have zero accountability.

Re: “GALLERY: Anti-Trump protest converges on Marion Square

A Chili's in Cedar Hills, TX kicked a black veteran with a documented service dog out of the restaurant after taking his "free" Veteran's Day meal away after an elderly trump supporter questioned his creds because of his race. Welcome to "trumps" "Great America"!

Re: “GALLERY: Anti-Trump protest converges on Marion Square

Steve Bannon, a Breitbart News Network executive chairman, who has been known for having white nationalist views and has been accused of anti-Semitism, was named chief strategist and senior counselor to President-elect Donald Trump on Sunday. And he is likely to consider Ted Cruz as a Supreme Court Justice.

Re: “GALLERY: Anti-Trump protest converges on Marion Square

I.am.afraid.....very afraid.....terrified, even! Our futures and our safety are in peril. Trump's campaign promises threaten the civil rights of countless citizens and freedom of the press. His attacks on the media and promises to censure only the media that disagrees with him is an all too familiar tactic. Only news that is pro-trump will be allowed. He's attacked women, en-masse, and in vulgar ways. He's vowed to seat a Supreme Court justice that will reverse gay marriage with the full support of various religious based "traditional" marriage proponents. (FYI, my marriage doesn't have shit to do with "god", nor his "blessing"). He is anti-pluralistic and has the full support and "christian blessings" of the many supremacists groups, which are also seeing an upsurge in membership since the election. There was talk about the election being rigged. And indeed it was......by the GOP and their minions working behind the scenes to expose the "evils" of HRC's non-existent "email" scandal and the 7 years of "Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi" reprisals, costing taxpayers tens of millions in wasted tax-dollars and wasted legislative time and effort. Mark my words, this is not going to end well for the United States of America, which has been successfully transformed into the "Divided States of America". The "straight, white, christian men" on one side.....and the rest of the nation on the other. The "straight, white christian women" don't understand that for some reason.

This is awesome. Donald and his team give every appearance that they will hit the ground running fast on January 20th.

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.
