Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

The ruling will be stayed in deference to a final Supreme Court decision. Even if it was not,SC gvt would refuse until final word is heard.
But, adding this
win to all the other circuit rulings certainly helps our cause in wrapping this thing up by next year.

Re: “Meet Latta Police Chief Crystal Moore next Wednesday

Wait, I thought SC was full of virulently anti-gay people? Especially small town, rural SC?

The reality, of course, is that SC is full of good people that will do what's right, as they did in this case.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

Who permitted you to define marriage? You are calling others ignorant, yet you don’t even understand that marriage existed before Christianity. Anyways, it’s a moot point from the religious side of things, and for good reason. We don’t need women getting stoned to death every time one wants a divorce.

Re: “Boeing CEO says employees are ‘cowering;’ machinists’ union is not amused

"Sorry brewengineer, my perception of the CEO and Boeing hasn't changed one bit by his statement. I don't think he meant it literally and therein lies the problem, everyone is so damn serious anymore and simply look for something, anything to jump on. Sad world we live in!"

I am guessing you have never been in a customer facing position for large corporations. Honestly, his comments don't bother me either, but I don't work for Boeing. A statement like that makes the guy sound like an asshole. Of course people are going to take everything literally. He is a CEO, not a comedian. What is sad, in my opinion, is that people in this guy's position still haven't learned how to talk to the press.


"The little guys loves anytime he can bring the powers that be to their knees."

Yeah, ok. Now you are off in your own world. You have a company that is actively working against unions, and has already been under fire for moving work to SC. Then the CEO makes a crack about "the little guys" cowering. Bad joke and bad timing. Some times the big guys need to remember that they wouldn't be VPs and CEOs without the little guys doing all the work to keep the company profitable. There is a big difference between being a manager and being a leader.

Re: “The Agenda: No Stone in S.C.; No 'Southern Charm' before election; No rest on Gaillard construction

Now there's another reason the local media could conduct and publish polls to let the public know where the candidates appear to be running going into an election. As it stands, neither the candidates nor the voters have a clue.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

If marrige were purely a religious institution, I would have no issue with not being allowed to join in a "blessed" union. However, the states engaged in creating (laws) legal protections and rights that extend to the federal level. Given that spouses were granted these governmental rights, it is simply not constitutional (nor fair) to deny these same civilian rights to all couples. If you do not approve of legal same-sex unions, don't engage in a gay marriage as no one is forcing anyone to get gay-married. We just want a little respect without the nasty attitude and name calling from you know who.

Re: “Appeals court ruling could bring gay marriage to S.C.

Judge Floyd,

Who has permitted you to redefine marriage? Your flotsam argument that one should be allowed to marry anyone they wish only works when you define deviancy down. The only thing one should not need to countenance is your unbridled ignorance.

People won't be happy unless he grovels and begs forgiveness. The little guys loves anytime he can bring the powers that be to their knees. Makes them feel good.

dp4, it isn't about political correctness. It is about not saying things that make you, and thus your company, look bad in the public's eyes. It's called PR, and a CEO of any corporation should know about it. Basic business communication 101. I wish more people used it.

As usual someone makes a comment and everyone is offended. What a bunch of insecure whiners! I wish wherever "political correctness" and all the ilk that goes with it would go back to whatever hole it came from. Of course that's what you get with a society that thinks it's all about "me" and how someone makes "me" feel!!!!!!

"You ask why WJH? The answer is simple, Jim McNerney must be a tactless asshole."

Welcome to corporate America. It is sad, since one of the first basic management courses I had was communicating professionally with tact. Anyways, a CEO should know better than to say something like that to the press. Even if he is an asshole, he should know how to put on a good show.

Re: “Boeing CEO says employees are ‘cowering;’ machinists’ union is not amused

I am in the union and build airplanes in a right to work state. Most people always use that line. It's also a right to will state for corporations. Read up on right to will ! If you don't trust Obama than why do you trust the labor laws. Most states in the USA labor laws are written to benefit corporations not the workers. Union helps protect workers right with a lawful contract.

Re: “Police: Denzel Curnell was armed, officer did not fire shot

some of you are so ignorant, young black men do not commit suicide. Young black men are not spoiled, suburb, lost, angry at parents, white boys. So people like gabriel mcrasta open your eyes, that so called of duty cop shot that boy and cleaned it up to make it seem like the boy shot himself because young black men do not kill themselves so STOP THAT BULLSHIT AND STOP LYING.

Re: “Heads up CPD: There is a man in a lime green hoodie on the Ravenel Bridge walking briskly towards Charleston

Is the Ravenel Bridge a high crime area? Have the residents there complained and demanded the police do something about it? Have they actually hired off-duty police as part of that effort?

Oh, no to all of the above? What, there are no residents there? Then what a failed analogy.
