Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

again, don't let your anger make a bad decision. My point is simple: we need Sheheen instead of Haley. Sheheen campaigns as he is doing now and there's a chance, he publicly embraces everything you and many more demand and there is no doubt that we'll get 4 more years of Haley. Sometimes being pragmatic makes more sense in the short term. But if you insist on "me, me, me" I would prefer you go to an opera.

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

So, in order for him to be elected, you are saying he should lie and tell you what you want to hear instead of what he believes? Ok. That makes sense. Regardless of your stance on this issue at hand, it sounds to me like you'd rather him be fake than real.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

It is hard to back track on the few that have been serving for many, many years. I am a Democrat but what does that have to do Mr. Haire with staying open late or not? Are you saying Democrats want to party all night and Republicans don't? I think that depends on if you have property in the area and if you live in the area and you want to stay up with the noise and clean up after everyone.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

actually they are trying to look out for the entire city, not your little ego-centric priorities.

FC, nice idea, but remember ,in general, NC is a whole lot more liberal and lenient than SC

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

I just don't get their plan, the former midnight shutdown or this 3 yr ban. They are only looking out for the interests of the 'charmed ones' & not the entire area & city. It just seems to me that there are so many more things to be focused on.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

I think the whole concept is asinine. I think these men are getting too old for their jobs it's time to replace them with some fresh blood.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

mikeg - Good idea! MAKE the businesses stay open that have decided that there's not enough profit to be made late in the evening....Moron.... ten years ago I had a shop on the Juanita Greenberg block that catered to college-age girls so we tried staying open Friday and Saturday nights till 10 for 2 months. Know what I got? A bunch of drunks trashing my store and 4 shoplifting arrests.
Son, leave the heavy lifting and heavy thinking to those that are trained and capable.
nofaith, whe it comes to giving retail advice, same goes for you.

Re: “The Agenda: State will defend gay marriage ban; 'Nuisance flooding' way up; 21% of state on Social Security

And, of course, the financially Conservative administration in Columbia will throw more money at a legal battle that has been already defeated. Thank God they don't waste money on useless causes like those damned Liberals!

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

No, he doesn't need their votes. Statistically, they are an anomaly. But he does need the votes of their bleeding heart liberal supporters and the bully press, many of whom are gay in one form or another. LGBT's represent a market segment the press and many businesses cannot afford to ignore. It's all about the almighty $$. Only time will time if Sheheen can win without them. After all, Haley did.

Re: “Meet Latta Police Chief Crystal Moore next Wednesday

Streetlaw,

There was a referendum. The people voted to change the form of government from strong mayor to weak mayor.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

How are they going to define "bar?" Any establishment that wants to apply for a liquor license?

Just out of curiosity... How many people who took the time to leave a comment actually listened to the audio clip or heard the exchange live during the call?

Re: “Meet Latta Police Chief Crystal Moore next Wednesday

The 'good' people of Latta were probably intimidated by the bully press to take the action they did. How could they change the form of government without a referendum? How about a little background on the council members.

"Unfortunately the little guys don't understand that were it not for the big guys making the decision to take the risk to grow, expand and innovate that they wouldn't have the opportunity to work to keep the company profitable"

This isn't a chicken or the egg situation. Both are needed to make a successful company and both require mutual respect.

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

Even if he wanted to hedge on it "personally," he could have taken a cue from the State AG of North Carolina that has seen the writing on the federal circuit wall that the legal fight to preserve the state bans on gay marriage is pretty much a lost cause.

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

speaking of morons..... Sheheen has a slim chance of winning since Democrats are in the minority in SC. If he were to make a commitment to the GLBT sector, that would eliminate any chance of attracting a huge portion of the Republican vote he needs to swing. He's being pragmatic, he's being smart. Stop being so self-centered and short-sighted. By far the most important issue for his supporters right now is to simply get him elected.
I've always thought the reason Republicans have such a choke-hold on SC is because their leadership believes most of their constituency is either too stupid or too intellectually lazy to believe anything other than the party line, and mostly I've thought those constituents proven me right. Unfortunately if Sheheen loses the support of pro-GLBT voters because of this issue, it's not just the Republican base that is stupid.
