Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

No one needs a gun to protect themselves until they really need one.
Guns are a great deterrent to home invasion. Burris Liquor store employees on Meeting St have been carrying firearms for decades. Guess how many robberies they have had. Zero!

Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

Apologies if it was matastrophe, Chris Haire.

Is East Bay Deli putting a fright into y'all over ad revenue because I won't stop talking about how their management pockets the employees' electronic gratuity?

My East Bay Deli gratuity comment has been removed/censored.

I'm just now beginning to lose respect for you, Chris Haire.

Cid--

As has become depressingly familiar, you miss the point by a staggering margin.

I was merely pointing out the irony of your blind secessionist reverence considering your statements about the heroes/traitors being defined by the victors. If that were the case, your obsession with the noble lost cause of the so-called War of Northern Aggression would be moot.

Furthermore, it is clear to me that your sympathies lie with one and not the other, excluding the dementia of your belief in the innocence of the South, because of the nature of the Black Lives Matter movement itself.

As evidenced by this falsehood I will now address.

'Meanwhile BLM is a violent and racist movement openly motivating some black Americans to murder police, preferably white police.'

False false false false.

BLM is a decentralized movement to be sure, but it has roundly and openly denounced the actions of the Dallas and Baton Rouge shooters.

If any demographic would be able to recite the 'lone wolf' narrative by heart, I would imagine it would be a white southern conservative. Go ahead, you know the words.....

Re: “Dylann Roof federal trial to draw from local jury pool

Might as well strap him into the gurney at Terra Haute right now.

Fuck the Death Penalty. It makes me ashamed to be an American.

To be fair to matastrophe, what he said in an earlier article's comment section about this fiasco sums it up:

Lowest. Bidder.

Re: “The Agenda: McMaster to speak at RNC; Group pushes back against SCE&G hikes; Trump speech fallout

I know, man. That's part of the problem.

Yet when one asks any employee there if they receive electronic gratuities, they ALL say that they don't; that it goes to management. Anyone: try it if you don't believe me. It seems like you have now, Ima.

It's not as good as Kate Moss looking at me from the current David Yurman billboard on the westbound side.

Re: “Pokémon Go: The good, the bad, and the Blastoise

ummm, I'm at the computer maybe 2 hours a day, how much time do you spend chasing Pokemon and other video games? And isn't it more, more sad that people are sitting in front of their computers complaining about people complaining about people...

Re: “The Agenda: Could bike lane help West Ashley?; Adoption scammers; Millions in S.C. affected by hacks

Kimpson, by-and-large, is entirely acceptable; that's the difference between him and Dwayne, ESQ.

Dwayne Green always has a transparent and self-serving agenda.

Plus, he has vanity plates that read "ESQ". What does that tell you about the man?

We don't care about your real estate, Jeff Cook.

You've hit the big time, though: a real estate agent on a billboard? Next thing we know, you'll be spending your hard-earned on a fucking Tag Heuer watch.

OK, so I read the Kimpson op-ed piece and here's my question:
Does Dwayne Green write Kimpson's stuff or does Kimpson write Greens?

Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

Lee, sometimes you seem to know some things. Not many things, but at least a few things. Then you write stuff like that and I have to facepalm.

SC, via the duly elected representatives in our state legislature, voted to secede from the USA, thus becoming a sovereign nation, separate from the USA. At that time we were the Republic of South Carolina (our present state flag was originally created as the flag of the new nation) and then later became a part of the CSA when other states followed our lead. The USA invaded and the CSA was conquered.

Meanwhile BLM is a violent and racist movement openly motivating some black Americans to murder police, preferably white police. They're closest proxy is the KKK, though I am not aware of any KKK affiliated murders in recent decades. Nor am I aware of any BLM members who are or were US Senators, like Hillary's KKK buddy Senator Byrd (D).

But yeah, to repeat, if BLM or the KKK takes over control of the USA I am sure they will be heroes. Do you disagree?

Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

'Mat - "You ever read much about the colonial revolution against Great Britain?"

Yes! I have. The lesson, from then to Turkey this week and every revolution in between, is that if you win you're a hero and if you lose you are traitor and might get hung.

If BLM can win, then they will be heroes'

Pretty cavalier opinion from someone that values the memory of the confederacy so dearly.

What, I wonder, could be the defining difference between BLM and Secesh?
