Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

Wait a minute. Wasn't this article about the trans gender issue??? The above comments have absolutely nothing to do with the article. I feel for transgender people. I just watched an episode on VICE on HBO last week devoted to this issue. And if it is healthy to start young kids from going thru puberty. I really do feel there is a cross chromosome that happens. But the issue is what to do with the majority of the population who are not transgender. We hv to look at both sides. When I saw this young boy on Vice, who was 5, he was already a " she". Totally. No way did she look like a he. But what happens when she goes to middle school and HS? And has to change in the locker room. She can get hormones to be more feminine. She can go in a stall. The girls will never know, until they start gym. I know when I was a young teenager, the thought of seeing a man's genitals was scary. Granted teenage girls r having sex at a younger age. But not all. And it is not fair to them and their parents to be subjected to a very small % of the population.

I do not think the Supreme Court sent it back to the lower courts because of Trump. This will be left up to the states. Just as pot is being left up to the states.
But to judge people as racists or homophobic and just horrible people is nonsense because they don't agree with transgender bathrooms.

People who voted for Trump are not racist. Don't hate gays. Don't hate transgenders. And blacks who are republicans are not uncle Tom's. It is utter nonsense. And it's getting boring.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

The global killings of American's likely refers to people like Anwar al-Awlaki, A great guy and Muslim preacher, who incited attacks against the West. Also, Samir Khan, another great guy, who was an Al Qaeda militant who created and served as an editor for the Al Qaeda magazine, 'Inspire'. Awlaki's son , was also killed by U.S. Drones. Or Perhaps he refers to another great guy, Jude Kenan Mohammad, who was an Al Qaeda recruiter. All great guys I am sure, all U.S. Citizens, and all thankfully dead for fighting against the country they betrayed.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

As far as wiretapping of private citizens, maybe some thought should be put into wiretapping the right citizens (which they did - can't vouch for the current administration) because since 9/11/01, all terrorist attacks that have been carried out on American soil, have been American citizens.

"Global killings of American citizens" ordered by Obama? Please provide a source because I would like to research that some more since it is extremely troubling.

Re: “The betrayal of Trans America

"In this regime, there are no real principles, only power and the repression of anyone vulnerable enough to repress."

This Baltimore carpetbagger must have been smoking a lot of the cannabis he speaks of for the last 8 years to miss all the wiretapping of private citizens, forced health insurance mandates and unauthorized global killings of American citizens that the Obama administration was engaged in.

CCP how long until you give a South Carolinian an editorial job that you farm out to Northeast hacks?

Re: “Is Hyman's a tourist trap, a beloved classic, or, perhaps, an institution?

I love Hyman's and so does my family! We have celebrated births, birthdays, anniversaries, and engagements there for the last almost 20 years, and will continue to go for as long as we can. The food is truly indicative to what we Charlestonians are, down home cooking done in an southern fashion and flair, clean and modest, and the epitome of seafood in the south. Mind you, the sandwiches are too huge to mention and taste absolutely wonderful! The best sweet tea around, absolutely amazing Bloody Mary's for brunch and hush puppies that will shut your mouth. They now offer our own FireFly Distillery concoctions and the Blackberry Moonshine Margherita is my absolute favorite!! Let the hater's hate, they're always going to have to about something, but for those of us that LOVE our southern ways and seafood, Hyman's is the place to go to get the best Seafood any way you want it, Cold sweet tea for a hot day, and a lovely view of our favorite market streets!! To me Hyman's is already " Institutional Status"!!

We lost a great person. My mind can't even comprehend this. Life to short. Drew was such am awesome human being. I worked side by side with this man at Carolinas and he always had a big smile on his face.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I am so glad that lawmakers are taking my porn-induced blindness, and hairy palm syndrome seriously. Mom always said it could happen, but I never believed her.

Re: “Thief allegedly robs Girl Scouts of their cookie money

Glad it got caught. And, I will stop using the term deplorable since it is a sensitive term now. I wasn't insinuating that Trump supporters are thieves, so I apologize to everyone - not just the "offended".

Re: “Is Hyman's a tourist trap, a beloved classic, or, perhaps, an institution?

I stopped ordering sandwiches at Hyman's because they would always wrap the pickle with the fries, making the pickle hot and the fries pickley... No matter how many times I complained, it kept happening.

As a tour guide, I tell people that Charleston has so many great restaurants, that if they ask you to wait in line, they're too busy for your business. If you catch Hyman's with a short wait, fine - it's decent enough, but nothing special. If they want you to wait half an hour (not uncommon), there are many much better places to eat within a short walk.

I'm willing to grant Hyman's "Institutional Status" as a Charleston landmark, but nothing there ever made me feel like I had to go back.

Re: “Is Hyman's a tourist trap, a beloved classic, or, perhaps, an institution?

I have visited Charleston including Hyman's. I did so on recommendation of a relative. I however will say that people need to make their own judgements on anything. I was not disappointed. I do not think I have heard people say they got sick or it was terrible. People are going and returning. I had seafood else where in Charleston too. I think Charleston as a whole is a tourist trap if you want to start judging. I had a great time in the area. I say go for it and experience the food and atmosphere and just enjoy life. You will pay money and get food in your belly.

Re: “Is Hyman's a tourist trap, a beloved classic, or, perhaps, an institution?

Sometimes I just want to eat fried shrimp and scallops with collards. I want to eat it in a place that is clean, has good service and seems to appreciate my presence. Hyman's is that (and more on the menu). My husband refuses to eat at the "tourist trap", so when I go, I must go with others. I am never disappointed. Unfortunately, when my husband picks where we go, that he deems is "Not a tourist trap" and has "good seafood", I always seem to leave annoyed by bad service, disappointed by poor quality food or both. I am always annoyed by the bill. Hyman's is great. I think Charlestonians biggest problem with Hyman's is it's unabashed marketing. The stickers, the stuff on the walls, the exit through the gift shop. They prefer a snobbish demeanor.

Re: “Is Lindsey Graham gay?

Heterosexual males , from early, want to have children and get married. It is innate. It is obeying the first great commandment to "Increase and Multiply." That some do not get married , some get children but do not get married, some marry and do not get children and some get do not get married and do not get children does not mean that they are gay.

Re: “South Carolina lawmakers aim to label porn as a public health hazard

I call BS.South Carolina has no way of executing its more than 30 death row inmates?The perfect solution is in their own thinking.South Carolina lawmakers have now filed a resolution to declare pornography as a public health hazard and weed is so dangerous that SC would become a death trap,there you have it.Lock them up and take them out with weed and porn!!.By South Carolina lawmakers ideas, they would not last but a few days on death row!!!

Does this mean our legislators feel that porn has damaged them?
