All the hand-waving over the age of the earth (which is 4-5 billion years, of course) is like a tweet from Donald Trump: a giant f'n distraction. The grandstanding over the Columbian Mammoth fossil earned our state nationwide jabs for our provincial rube behavior, but did nothing to erode the influence of the party on this state. What's really at stake is the typical litany of basic state functions being left to dry to prove that they don't work: public education, environmental protection, roads/bridges/dams. Just look at how many road and highway signs simply collapse in the breeze around here? That's a symptom.
Now he's got a shot at being on deck for the governor's desk, solidifying the succession order as solid Good Ol' Boy. But there's plenty more where he came from, and yuks and hashtags about an icky graphic novel or no, they're getting their way.
And it teaches them that they must make everyone believe exactly as they do, so when they grow up into physical adults, they do everything they can to control the masses and have them conform to their definition of m0rality. It's called "Br@inwashing".
That t3rrifies (abnses) them (and me until I saw the light of their judgment) which starts their cycle of a lifetime of religi0us oppr3ssion that controls them forever.
Abnse from the chnrch and g0d! "Who ever does not believe in me, worship me and only me, or fails to follow my "loving" commands shall perish in a fiery h3ll for eternity".
'Did something happen to them as children?' Yes.
It seems to me the central question is what about Scott caused Slager's "fear" from a man who was obviously trying to get away from him. Scott didn't attack Slager; he ran away. Whatever caused the altercation and whatever happened during it, was due to Scott's not wanting to deal with Slager. When the shots were fired, he was 18 feet away. I am not one to yell "racist" at every opportunity, but whether or not Slager was even aware of it, if you are honest you have to ask how much Scott' being Black contributed to Slager's "fear" for his life. t is almost impossible to deny the racial elements in the case.
seems like a never-ending supply of these people. Did something happen to them as children?
As a proud member of the aforementioned groups, I am aware now, more than ever, of the importance of getting more women in these local seats of various governments. I am seriously considering making a run next year, because Charleston needs to be represented by the people who want to make a positive change, not a name for themselves.
Wow, that will be amazing to see the tens of women marching in protest. Hope it doesn't affect mall parking.
You should expect a string of childish public messages from Tweeto as soon as wakes from his security, diplomacy, and economics 101 briefing induced naps. Though its possible he'll wait to attack you personally until after he signs Executive Orders eliminating the 1st Amendment and authorizing the imprisonment of cartoonists who make fun of him once he takes office (with a nod to Kim Jong-Un and his buddy Vlad, for establishing those brilliant precedents). Please be patient.
Do you ever have an original thought? All these editorial toons based on other people's work is getting tired.
Not too mention, based on nonsense.
"Hes got no ideas on jobs"
President Obama on Mr Trump 2016
Unfortunately, in this country you get a trial whether you deserve one or not. Its called Democracy. We even use a new rope to hang you with.
Excellent work in helping to bring everyone back together after a tumultuous election.
Where do we find these fossils? It is so embarrassing how we give a platform to idiots.
Roof is not worth any of the tax payers money to have a trial nor to keep incarcerated. He should executed by a firering squad. Then maybe put in a pine box, and buried in a landfill. By the way I'd attend both his execution and funeral to make sure that it actually happened.
Liberte, I wonder if more people would believe the moon landings were real if it had been streamed live on Facebook.
Why skip around what you are trying to say. just say it; "If Scott had been the cop he would be found guilty of murder". See? Not that hard to sound racist, even when you reverse the situation. Personally, I think the outcome would be the same.
As an example to the non-calm nature of trumpsters, hate crimes in NYC are up 36% YTD 2016, but has sckyrocketed to 115% post-election and mostly anti-semitic hate crimes. Trump is really bringing out the worst in people because HE is the worst example of a role model to grace this earth because of the power of the President.
No, more like back to the 1650s.
McMaster as Governor and Bryant as Lt. Gov. Looks like we are in for a ride . Back to the 1950's.
"You make a good point that being non-racist isn't good enough. But don't tell us clearly what we need to do beyond that."
One thing the whole community, black and white, can do is demand quality education and to hold parents and children accountable. The lack of investment in public education is the dirty ugly secret in our serene City By The Sea.
I work for a living and sweat paying my bills like so many. Please don't ask me to fix the black community.As a white person, I am not responsible for the "Corridor of Shame". Black people should create their own opportunity if they see it denied in corporate culture.Black men are over represented in the prison system because of a pervasive plantation mentality that has resulted in generations no longer dependent on ole maussa for food and housing. Instead, there are families living in public housing collecting food stamps as a way of life. Personally, I can't do a thing about 1 out of 2 black children born out of wedlock. I can't do a thing about the dominance of females in that sector of society, marginalizing the men. Children without father figures lack direction and land in jail. It would seem to be the place of the churches and social service organizations to lift up that culture of dependency.
