Re: “DHEC to amend proposed abortion clinic regulations included in error

So women's rights say that sexual intercourse must be consensual.... but murdering the child that it may create doesn't require consent from the father. That logic seems flawed.

I can definitely relate. There is a difference between being friendly and being friends.

Re: “Dope Sick in the Holy City

Finally an article in this paper that isn't just basically the worst journalism ever produced!

Re: “Dope Sick in the Holy City

I had no idea that we had such a problem here. I have taken pain meds for years due to back and neck issues. My husband would take my pills. I think he had even started taking them and putting something else in the bottle for me to take. Then I found the cut up straws, little baggies. I could no longer have him in my home with my child. I had slipped in to clinical depression do to the deaths of my parents and husband that I could not trust. I was taking 3 of the 7.5 mil of Hydrocodone for about 10 years. Thank God my eldest daughter moved me to TN. There they got me on other meds that work for the pain and brought me out of the Hydrocodone fog. I thank God again do not have the addictive trait.
Thank you all for all the information and work you are doing. I wish my husband would have worked with me to get him help.

Re: “Dope Sick in the Holy City

This is one of the best articles that I've read in awhile! It's diffently a cry for help in this city. Charleston is to blind these days of the ugly truth that lives here.

Re: “The Agenda: "The election's not rigged"; Another CofC fraternity suspended; Duncan says "Thank God for Wikileaks"

Can we trust an accused pedophile with an agenda to derail democratic lead prosecution because the GOP won't go after him - presumably because they love him so?:…

Re: “Rev. William Barber brings ‘moral revival’ to Charleston

Oh boy more angry rhetoric from a disgruntled MLK wanna be. How about some constructive conversation designed to evoke a real change. Nah lets just shake our fists and be angry right?
Their are none so blind as those who will not see.

Re: “The Agenda: Scott sticks by Trump; Haley reflects on Matthew; Lots o' apartments

No More hotels or apartments. Driving people who cannot afford housing in Charleston is not fair so they can work in the hospitality industry.

Re: “West Ashley neighborhoods demand major changes following continued flooding

West Ashley, specifically HWY 61 near Bee's Ferry, has grown exponentially INSANE since 1998 - too much over-development & too much traffic to handle that historic highway - EVERYDAY it's like an EXODUS morning through evening when having to travel in either direction. And when it rains it pours & floods the neighborhood in front of my neighborhood and the one in front of that too. I've concluded that the City of Charleston and the Mayor just don't give a SHIT about this PART of the City since we don't attract TOURISTS like the PENINSULA.

Re: “Former SCGOP head accused of threatening his wife

James and I were together for 3 years and lived together for two until he was moved to another state for job in March of last year.Sept was the last time we spent time together.We went for a vacation and had a fabulous time,not knowing it would be the last time I would see him.He stopped calling Nov,and just sent me a text saying he did not want to talk.I did not pursue it because I thought he just needed some space.March came rolling in,and I found out he got married.How could it be?I found out,shortly before we started dating,he was communicating with a girl from another country and made a trip there once and proposed to her.He made another trip in 2015.She finally came to the country Jan of this year and I figured the reason he dumped me was when he found out she was approved to come to the US.I made the huge mistake of going to the social media and found the womans posts of their wedding and trips,etc.That hurt me more than I could imagine.It has been 8 months since Ive seen him but just cant get him out of my head.Honestly,I feel very jealous of his now.I wake up in the morning feeling nonexistent,empty and wishing I dont wake up so I dont have to feel the same pain I could never get accustomed to.The deceit and the fact that I was used and hurt so bad that I dont think I could move past it.I decide to seek the help of a psychologist because I knew I was losing it. As I searched the internet, I found cases similar to mine and some,even worse.But all of them sang praises of a man whom helped them restoring their broken relationships,marriages and familyDr Kene Dilli. I was supprised and decided to give it a try as I contacted his email I found in those testimonies; kenedillitemples AT yahoo DOT com. Behold,after doing all he instructed,he sent me a parcel plus the steps needed as reguarding the parcel.Now,I have got back my loverJames,and he has filed for a divorce with the other lady he married. #HappyToBeBackWithJames.

Alison in communion with Angelina and Sarah, Septima and Carrie, is a most lovely thought, inspiring a smile, and tears.

Re: “Matthew makes local landfall, but Charleston weathers the storm

How is the 2 day evacuation figure for Matthew calculated? It arrived in the Charleston area on Saturday morning but the I26 lane reversal was 3pm on Wed.
Some people left even earlier, it was a 6+ hour drive to Columbia on Tuesday night (I'm reliably informed).

Hugo is definitely the standard to measure against for the past half-century. David in 1979 was a Cat 5 in the Caribbean but nothing by the time it reached Charleston.

Re: “Convicted felon Thomas Ravenel endorses Donald Trump

I mean really, does this really warrant news???? I guess for you liberals. Who cares what he thinks. And someone mentions "liars". Wow wee...look who is calling the kettle black...and am I allowed to say that? Some of you may think I am racist saying that. HRC not a liar? Ha!!!!! And I suggest informing yourselves on policy, rather than sex scandals...and what the Wikileaks emails are showing......what John Podesta ( you do know who he is) and HRC wrote to one another. You would think these idiots in the public eye, would hv been smart enough to hv written each other decent emails? But nope, just like Nixon, they think they are above it all...look at the people at Sony!!!! Well, if you take the time and see what Hillary and John wrote about the Catholics Evangelicals, the blacks, the latinos, and yes, us Jews and Asians...they did not discriminate. She actually has contempt for all us peon Americans...And let's face it, most men screw around. Half the men in DC cheat on their wives, with their secy's, or with young men....and now, we are getting so puritanical? Liberals? Who hv no problem aborting a baby when a woman is 8 months pregnant. Has no problem having transgenders using the same bathroom. But has a problem when a man talks about a woman"s boobs and behind? Really? should all listen to yourselves...your high and mighty attitude. Shame on even printing the article....stupid.
