It's all BS. This town is so overbuilt with hotels it like a Monopoly game board; there's no way they can be anywhere near the occupancy rates they claim to justify the prices they ask. Some local thread keeps pushing the new construction in order to have continued construction so the replacement cost is high and the hotels preserve the higher cost occupancy rate. Take a look around; is this place hotel overbuilt or what?
Is Mr Bubbles Chris Collins? He seems to have the same level of competency with the English language.
It costs the school district about $50k a year to keep that building in good enough shape for it to be occupied. They charge the church about $7k a year that they are constantly late on paying and are constantly in violation of their lease agreement. Several months ago the church gave notice that they would not be staying there and the school district accepted the notice, including Chris Collins by his vote. Any legal costs for this borne by the district should be charged back to Mr. Collins.
Racism means that discrimination happens because of ethnicity. As in: I see you, and you're an Eskimo, and I hate Eskimos because I'm racially prejudiced against them so I'm not going to hire/date/help/etc you.
The de facto meaning in 21st century America, though, is that certain cultural and behavioural choices are associated with certain races. So, if you disagree with those cultural or behavioural choices you are therefore a racist (AS LONG AS they are not the "white" set of cultural and behavioural choices, then it's ok and not racism).
If your cultural and behavioural choices do not align with those conventionally assigned to your race (ala Tim Scott) but they do align with the "white" ones, then it's not racism to disagree with them and use words like "race traitor" or "Uncle Tom" - it's just snarky and clever and we're, like, totally cool with it you know dude?
Driftaway, I know you want to be offended and roll out the righteous "us evil gays" lines and all that...but can you at least wait until there is actually cause to? Localhutch's post was in no way, shape or form such a reason. Just because someone disagrees with you, and you're gay, it doesn't mean they are anti-gay.
ps - If you disagree with me, then why do you are you bigoted against Citadel graduates? Stop the hate! :)
Let me get this right. A community is paying all they can afford to in truth be Taxed twice on a public property that no one really care about. Am I some what close here? Now the community has to hire an attorney to take back the use of the building that is publicly owned. I say open the doors. Let grandma have her 85 birthday. So what. May you should start eating the birthday cake and back off the Kool-Aid everyone seems to be drinking these days. I have a History question has everyone forgotten what buildings where first used to start schools? The Community, The People, The Government.
My issue isn't understanding how Crisis Ministries didn't notice the money missing (but $4.5 million a year, wow)....
My issue is how the bank didn't notice this a lot sooner....
"between Dec. 13, 2011, and June 3, 2013, Libby 'took checks belonging to Crisis Ministries, and made them payable to [different] vendors, totaling $96,199.01, and then deposited said checks into a personal bank account, belonging to her, and once in her possession used said money for her own personal use.'"
Now, if I read that write, she was writing checks from the CM checkbook payable to someone who was not herself and then still somehow getting them deposited into her account?
Yea, that would require either extreme incompetence on the part of the bank, or complicity somewhere inside the bank.
Are you for real?
Is Carl Weathers involved?
"...more salad than boozy."
But entirely bourgie.
"I'd like to see the breakdown of those contributions."
Me too. It's a shame we don't know any journalists.
This article makes stay at home moms and retirees sound like a bunch of bored, petulant children with too much time on their hands. You live at the goddamn beach people - just go enjoy it and calm down!
Well, Thanks for the clarification Tarafan.
I may have mentioned the wrong poster. The person I mean is that idiot wearing those glasses that always comes in with the LGBT view of everything and how Folly is still Folly.
Yeah pal. You are still and asshole and an idiot too!
You put it very well dear. This is all about criminal politicians, the criminals of the 1% and idiots like some other posters on this board. Ive been going to Folly since 1969 and I wont be back. Who wants to go there and pay out the wazzo for a second rate beach and a nazi police force? Hey mayor of Folly Beach! You are so stupid and such a crook you cant even read and digest the tourist and revenue numbers you do have.
Folks its over. Let Folly drift out to sea and we can go beachfront in Johns Island.
Screw Folly Beach! You guys are a sinking ship of a second rate beach!
Folly Beach has gotten too big for its britches. Its a hippie redneck hell hole that attracts the likes of the sexually challenged Andersonggcl.
You guys are a loser second rate beach that has now pissed in your corn flakes.
You guys are going bankrupt if the erosion doesnt get your first.
More government interference for one percent idiots has ruined yet another free town.
Screw FOlly Beach!
I've just been informed that it was a ceremonial first pitch by the 77 year old, which changes my opinion and clearly makes more sense.
Ridiculous!!! "Hammerin' Hank Aaron threw out the first pitch (The State) at Capital City Stadium in Columbia Wednesday,"
The Great Hank Aaron is noooo longer the homerun king, is RETIRED!, and wasn't even a pitcher !!! WTF (!?) are the Columbia Blowfish thinking ?!!! No way to win a ballgame boys! This is, the problem in Columbia, and no way for those capitol city goofballs to represent my great state!
Careful Mat, the kettle is calling
"Webster's defines 'bigot' as 'a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices.'"
...and then you go on for another fourteen paragraphs and link to your blog a couple of times.
It wasn't a rebuttal, it was a joke. I should think u would be glad someone is still reading this.
Personally I have a tough time wrapping my mind around the concept of civil rights or entitlements, so I have no opinion on this legal wrangling. I do think the CCP (that's Charleston City Paper in case You didn't know) has once again perverted the intended focus of an article by choosing the most sensationalistic title it can come up with.
I have enjoyed your writing (and Catastrophe's) and have no knee jerk reactions to anyone attacking what most "charities" have devolved into in this country.
