Re: “The Agenda: Upstate pols prepping for societal collapse; Columbia firm appears in ethics inquiry; Graham and committee questioning Gorsuch

Harry Truman once said "you can't make money in politics unless you're a crook" or, maybe it was "an honest public servant can't become rich in politics"

Did you all see the trash left when they left? Sensitive to our earth? I think not.

Re: “S.C. lawmaker takes a stand against online ticket scalpers

Great step in the right direction, but a $100 fine for tickets people are making literally thousands on scalping for single events isn't enough. Should be mandatory 30 days in jail. Once again, glad someone is taking a step in the right direction in helping preserve an amazing music scene. Thank you Senator Matthews.

Survivalist communities? Ok, whatever your god told you must do, jump on it, as long as you don't involve tax-payer funds.

Jim Deminted, more like. Fomenting anger and mistrust in our NON-partisan Justice and Intelligence communities is anti-American and unpatriotic. Perhaps he, too, is complicit in collusion or at least complicit in supporting collusion.

Fascinating! It's almost like a wizard from the1800's reached through, in infinite jest, to articulate whimsically through Dustin. Huzzah!

Fascinating! It's almost like someone was reaching through from the 1800's in infinite jest and manipulating articulate whimsy.

Re: “When Charleston County Council codes of conduct act as chains

I was at that meeting. Elliott Summey ate crow and Henry Darby had a meltdown.

The people who got up to speak were genuinely pissed off. Darby and Summey were required to be at that meeting. Those speakers weren't. They were citizens who felt strongly enough about the issues (especially Summey's comments about Anna Johnson) to get up off the couch after a long day of work and come out to tell the council how they felt. They (the speakers) were not professional politicians. They were mostly ordinary people who spoke from the heart.

Vic Rawls should understand by now that : 1. Sometimes your boss yells at you. That's a good time to listen. and 2. Real democracy is noisy. And messy. If he doesn't get this maybe he belongs in another place ... perhaps in the 19th century.

Re: “When Charleston County Council codes of conduct act as chains

Jessie, don't always agree with your political point of view but I would have to agree with your premise here, there is a time for everything. I've sat on many meetings where most of the people present knew exactly what was afoot and completely disapproved, but did nothing because they were afraid to take the heat from certain 'nice' power players. Civility and common courtesy in public discourse are important, there is something to be said for the southerner's way of calling someone a jackass without using that word, or being a jackass in the process, Mr. Summy however has certainly failed in that regard. We've all known since our days in junior high that civility and common courtesy can be handy tools for intimidation and manipulation. Interesting article, thanks.
