Re: “Resurrecting the case of George Stinney

This saddens me in such a way that my heart literally hurts. Please do not give up on this case. This little boy deserves Justice.. it's an embarrassment to our justice system! Love from me to you for your sincere concern for this little boy who suffered a horrific death due to ignorance and racism.

Re: “CofC suspends alcohol-related activities for fraternities, sororities

I guess nobody here was 18 and away from home for the first time. "Not a kneejerk." K...well, what effect do we believe this will actually have on drinking? Theyll move the parties to non-campus housing. Great job everyone, problem solved, now lets work on that ozone layer.

Re: “CofC suspends alcohol-related activities for fraternities, sororities

CoFC has a rep as a party school for a good reason....it is. Each freshman class progressively worse in the no common sense department. No worries everyone, it only lasts until mid to end of October. With total panic setting in November 1st when the usual suspects realize that they may have to go on the typical CoFC 5 year plan and their parents have to fork out for the same classes again after they beat their kids ass. Party on Bruh!!

Re: “Dimitri Cherny takes on Mark Sanford—again

I was lucky enough to meet Dimitri Cherny at a Sun City rally, then a week later host him in July for a weekend. Learning about how he plans to work FOR the citizens of SC , but also the citizens of the United States is what he's about. Dimitri "GETS IT" and how the middle class has been hit and hit hard.. The poor among us have also been hit hard with services and programs they depend on just to sustain themselves being cut or eliminated. He's clear, knows what needs to be done and is ready to roll up his sleeves and GET it DONE for all of us. Sanford as Governor was an embarrassment, as a US Congressman he's doing NOTHING to make life better for the people of SC...

Re: “Margo Venomous, tattoo artist

Margo Venomous is a true artist. I have 3 tattoos from her, all in the last year. One in January, one in May, and one in July. My next one is scheduled for October. She always listens to your ideas and counters with ideas of her own if she thinks it'll look better a certain way or work better on certain parts of your body. She really cares about what she does and what she puts on your body and where it goes. I have been completely and utterly blown away by what she has come up with all three times and I can't wait to see what she does with the new one. Margo Venomous is forever my tattoo artist.

Re: “CofC suspends alcohol-related activities for fraternities, sororities

Admissions are too high when they can't even guarantee enough housing for 1/3 of the student body.

Elliotborough's been worse than usual, too. The past few weeks I've seen superbowl-weekend levels of day drinking.

Re: “CofC suspends alcohol-related activities for fraternities, sororities

Cannonborough has become almost unlivable during the past few weeks and CofC is responding to the complaints in the appropriate way. Students have been passed out on the sidewalks and carted off in ambulances. Parties of THREE HUNDRED have been reported to the cops on Monday nights. Day drinking has been shut down over and over and the police can barely keep up. I commend the administration for doing the right thing.

Re: “DHEC releases map of Zika cases in South Carolina

We need for Congress to ante up the money to nip this in the bud. We have been financially ignoring public health in this country and the good people in health departments and the CDC are hanging on by their fingernails to protect us. We have Zika, Dengue and Chikungunya virus in the wings to cause a disaster. (Apparently we don't worry about the epidemic in Puerto Rico). The US needs to get serious about this and appropriate the money CDC and the NIAID need to manage these with 21st century tactics before its too late. But I guess we can always finger point when catastrophe hits.

Re: “New art installation aims to raise awareness of homelessness

Everyone was run out of tent city. Some given bus tickets. The rest of us...still in the same situation. They just pushed everyone into North Charleston. No longer the city's problem. I don't know one person that was actually housed.

Re: “The Agenda: ACT shows 14% college readiness; Graham warming to Trump; Haley campaigning for NC's McCrory

No surprise here on Graham and his "warming" to a tyrant, who is becoming more of a "sheep in wolf's clothing" second-by-second. You know the mantra....support the GOP candidate "tooth and nail" even though he is really standing for the LACK of freedoms, not unlike TSARs of bygone eras.

The GOP states they support freedoms, but their definition doesn't include freedoms for everyone, but only freedoms that support control over certain people's lives:
"Freedom FROM women's rights", "Freedom FROM immigrants", "Freedom FROM the LGBT community", "Freedom FROM pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FROM the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FOR personal and corporate greed". The GOP embraces the straight, rich, caucasian (Hello out there...the GOP is using minorities along with poor and less informed supporters to collect their bounty), christian male that helps to feather their political and financial nests.

Opposite of the spectrum is the "Love thy neighbor" (Jesus' words, not mine) type of freedom supporter.
"Freedom FOR women's rights", "Freedom FOR immigrants", "Freedom FOR the LGBT community", "Freedom FOR pluralism" (reason USA was founded in the first place), "Freedom FOR the poor and needy" and finally, "Freedom FROM personal and corporate greed".

Re: “What it means to choose a person over a lifestyle

I've had the pleasure of traveling across the US, Latin America, and Europe for business for the past 15 years. My girlfriend yearns for the day that we live in another country for a few years, but in my own way, I feel that I've seen enough of it to satisfy me. Everyone is different. Be yourself, challenge yourself, and question why you are envious of others, but don't ignore what makes you happy because you wonder why you are unlike others around you.
