Re: “How Charleston’s accommodations taxes are spent

so half goes to cops and meter maids, both of which MAKE money through tickets? so the fees pay the people we pay to charge us all more. and the money they all skim off us all goes to shore up a breakwall for the South of Broad millionaires. Great scam on the common non-government types who work and visit here. what a country.

Only ten years. Seems rather quick. I'm sure the free parking will disappear when it's "fixed"

Re: “Faith groups lead Moral Day of Action at Statehouse

"In addition to the national day of action, which includes marches on 30 state capitol buildings across the U.S., organizers are also asking faith leaders across the country to “preach and teach” in their places of worship at least two weekends leading up to Election Day in November, laying out what they believe citizens should demand from candidates and elected officials from the presidential race on down to local school board members."

Don't believe this is allowed:
"Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds or public statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes."

Re: “The Agenda: S.C. schools underfunded by $4 billion since 2010; Chs. metro sees record exports; Dam laws debated

You can throw all the money you want a education but if the parents are as sorry as they are now, nothing will help. Its all about the parents. Kids in China do so well because their parents push them and are together, not because they have great classrooms. Our parents are split up and spoil the kids.

Shouldn't we be imprisoning the state legislators for illegally underfunding education? Otherwise nothing will get done, they will continue to break the law.

How about a follow-up. Out of the $6.5 billion in exports, what was the Boeing share, and if Boeing is left out how does this year compare to last?

Re: “CofC student faces charges of sexual exploitation of a minor

Cid95, you are so right! This sort of stuff has been going on at CofC for years, & it's been swept under the rug. I am so sick & tired of it!

Sadly, this sort of thing is so common that it's only local news. But if some knobs at The Citadel dress in halfass ghost costumes to perform a skit...

Re: “How unsecured vehicles contribute to Charleston's gun thefts

I'm confused. What does negligent behavior on the part of gun owners have to do with dictatorships and civil liberties? Are you saying gun owners should be allowed to be careless with their weapons? Please elaborate.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg lays out plan in response to Bi-Lo closing

I guarantee you theft was rampant and with groceries stores having a razor thin profit margin, it hurts bad. My uncle owns a bunch of grocery stores and he said when people don't put their buggies in the right place they get damaged and the store loses money and tries to pass it onto the customers. So next time you see a POS leave there buggy in a parking space, don't confront them because they are POS, just move the buggy into a cart slot.

Re: “Mayor Tecklenburg lays out plan in response to Bi-Lo closing

Having shopped at this location for several decades, the Piggly Wiggly was far superior to BiLo. It was clear BiLo had no intention of putting any love (or money) into this store. Sad, becasue as Piggly Wiggly, it had a lot of personality and character.

Ron would love to live under a dictatorship with no rights. Except he couldn't post stupid rebuttals online because there would be no free speech. Although I'm sure he would tow the party line if it meant to control of its citizens. He is pathetic

Re: “If you're against Trigger Warnings, just call them a heads-up

"When people say they "don't like trigger warnings" I have to ask what they don't like."

As far as I can tell, and I've asked the similar question to many different people, the fear is of something that doesn't exist. The impression that some give is that anything with a "trigger warning" means that the topic is therefore banned, that the professor would give a head's up "this contains violent descriptions of rape, and thus we'll just skip it," as opposed to "we're going to cover the Jerry Sandusky case next class, and that has a lot of detail about child sexual abuse and exploitation, just so there are no surprises." My Biology of Sex professor used to give the "head's up" before the class in which he showed the clinical videos of how people orgasm. But that was back in the 90s long before any of this "trigger warning" stuff, right?
