Pugnax, I agree, Trump refuses to specify when America was still great. Was it in the fifties, under Eisenhower, when the south, including South Carolina, suffered under apartheid, and even the north still had very widespread racism? Or even earlier, like under president Washington, when we still had racist slavery? I sure wonder when was America greater than under Obama.
Great article! Definitely want to read the book! -Anne Hamrick
Your decency, morality, and humanity plus rational coherence and such are, to be sure, nice concepts, but their loss would be a small price to pay to make America great again, like it was at some unspecified time in the past.
Tim Scott condones sexual assault. Henry McMaster condones sexual assault. Joe Wilson condones sexual assault. And if you support them or Trump, you condone sexual assault too. This has transcended partisan politics. A vote for Trump is a vote against decency, morality and humanity.
Jack's Cosmic Dogs in Mt P has a mean corn dog too :)
I live in West Ashley, where this article says there is again major flooding. Though like many others, I have fled from the hurricane Matthew. Does someone know, can someone tell me, who can I call, to find out if my street and streets around it are still flooded?
Vanity - one of the seven deadly sins:
It sure is frustrating with this hurricane Matthew. I have evacuated from Charleston, like many others. Now I am many miles away, in a hotel. I have called SCEG, they don't know if the power is on in my apartment. I have no idea who I can call to find out if my street, Ashley Crossing Dr., or other streets around there, are still too flooded to drive there, or if they are blocked by fallen trees or tree branches. I tried to call my apartment complex rental office, busy signal. I called my own home phone, busy signal.
So I called Comcast, they told me Comcast has an outage there until tomorrow (Tuesday) around 9 PM, and that the rental office phone is also on Comcast and so has the same problem, that is why the busy signal. So I don't even know if the rental office was open. Certainly I can't reach them, so they can't tell me if the power is on, if the streets are no more flooded, if they are blocked by fallen trees or fallen branches. The city does not seem to have any road office. I don't know who else I can call. It is so frustrating. Does anyone here know who I can call?
Is there still a curfew in Charleston? My Husband is trying to deliver on his big rig and needs to know?
Trump states that his locker-room banter is a past embarrassment and he said he no longer thinks that way, but he has denigrated women and others through-out his CURRENT presidential campaign. So it isn't who he WAS, it is who he IS and he doesn't have the power from within to control himself. His behavior is ingrained.
Why do counties have seperate curfews? Just leads to confusion for people. Only curfew we heard announced was midnight but later found out Dorchester county decided theirs would be 6 PM, how about some consistency???
Well, I might have to throw my support behind trump. He just made it ok to go grab some pnssy, even married pnssy. Oh, wait a minute, that would make me a deplorable to support a cad! HRC made the statement that half of trumps supporters were deplorable, but after #pnssygate, ONLY deplorables that think like trump will support him.
Callie's Biscuits on King Street is trying to open at 9 today!
Mellow Mushroom, Mt. Pleasant opening 1pm on Sunday!
Eggs Up Grill in Mt Pleasant will Open Sunday morning at 8 AM for limited service breakfast. We feel it is important to open up to our community.
And, since many of our staff are traveling home as well – Instead of our regular menu we will offer a buffet.
Hibachi Grill on Savannah Hwy in West Ashley is open. Already packed though. But you can take your chances;
Waffle house on Dorchester road in North Charleston was closed as of 15 minutes ago but our power just came back on so I don't know if it will remain closed.
I think that this is the most important set of words in the whole article, when it comes to moving forward: "...having panel discussions about diversity rather than simply having diverse panels." More of us need to remember this when organizing and initiating cool things. It's easy to reach out to your inner circle to get things done. It's much more important to do the work to expand that circle to include a greater range of viewpoints and experiences. If we do so, we will get bigger things done. There's no question about it.
I am very upset about a Kroger grocery store here in Murrells Inlet or Garden City is a 24 hour store and is staying open through the 24 hours. This store is in the evacuation
zone on Atlantic avenue and highway 17. How could this business be so selfish, these people have families also that they want to be with. We will start getting thrashes of the storm late tonight early tomorrow morning. The Police here are saying do not stay here if you can leave. Bi-Lo closed at 6pm and not opening again until Sunday Oct. 9th. We shop this store all the time and the associates are so kind many of them who have families. The mandatory evacuation was zone A anything east of highway 17. Well they are in zone A and definitely wear it will flood. I just wanted to let you know about this and I would really appreciate if you followed up on this, being that you were the one who named the zones that needed to evacuate. I would like a copy of your response so I can take it to the manager of the store who made this decision. Utterly selfish nothing is more important than family and being with them especially during a storm like Matthew Hurricane level 2 at this point in Gorgia and to continue at this level or get even higher possibly. I thank you for your consideration with this. Donna McCuiston Garden City BeachSC I stayed behind as I am on call for the hospital here which is an essential service.
