Clarkie, you obviously are not a True Christian, as my husband and I are. We worship The Lord and live by The Bible. There are many stories of man eating lesser men and beasts, that is why they are here! They fall from Gods grace and that is their lot.
"Alas the cries of the drunkard were stilled by God as the followers placed him verily into the large heated cauldron and upon he they heaped many vegetables including carrot and corn. Let not him that eateth no man despise him that eateth of man; and let not him which eateth not man judge him that eateth man: for God hath received him." Romans 14:2
You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.
Read your Bible Clarkie!
Ima, you got me. I was afraid of that - it's not that we don't have them it's just that I haven't seen them. I hope it stays that way.
You really are out of it SouthernBells , Mocking God is not good be careful ,
"I am glad we don't have, or at least I haven't seen, the type of buskers which are very common in Europe: people pretending to be statues."
I prefer the statues. You don't have to pretend to not hear them when you're walking by.
you haven't been to the Market on a summer evening in the last 10 years have you Cid? That's about how long the "silver people" have been coming here.
Good article, well-written.
Busking by playing music well or not so well is one thing. That's entertainment.
I am glad we don't have, or at least I haven't seen, the type of buskers which are very common in Europe: people pretending to be statues. Their whole gig is painting themselves and their clothes and stuff to look silver or stone or bronze and then standing still. And expecting money for it.
"Verily and we shall feast upon them as delights of Heaven above!" clearly stated in Testiclees 4:20 is it obvious to any good Christian that the homeless are provided to us for eating and nourishing our bodily temples. The Lord God makes this possible by making the homeless readily available in many areas, like schools of fish, which Jesus fed to the multitudes. The homeless are the Fish that The Bible refers to and we are the multitudes.
It's OK, Paul.
No one is *good* at busking.
Fine work. I would have paid to see you out there busking next to the b-boy kids. I've done a bit of this, believe it or not, and the problem I always ran into was deciding when it had been long enough to play the same song over again. I wonder if the busking pros have a rule related to that dilemma.
I've been away from the Holy City for a few months but am curious - with a Harris Teeter a mile away and a new grocery store proposed in this complex - is this a small push to eventually redevelop that current Harris Teeter/ East Bay site with hotels and housing in advance of the cruise ship terminal? I remember hearing that HT was looking at their Charleston options back in 2013 before Kroger bought them.
Some call it Karma others a coincidence but I think it's politics as usual that the city is redoing Colonial lake and the adjacent streets just in time for City Hall's biggest donor, the Beach Company, to develop a major adjacent parcel. Sure not going to get big money from buyers next to the lake the way it is now. I can see the 4-color brochures now featuring splendid views of the lake and other improvements. Maybe the lake wasn't for sale. Sadly, the project will move forward and those who opposed it most will be the first ones to snatch up a new pad there or frequent it's grocery store: "It's so convenient!" We dealt with that in West Ashley when Extra Space went in. The same people who were against it now keep their junk there.
nofaith, busking is a whole 'nother type of performance than a club gig, and a good busker in the Market will make more than a solo in most bars in this area.
I would think that if you were really good at busking you wouldn't have to do it for very long...
Age has nothing to do with it. I'm older. Sometimes you just bitch for the sake of bitching. The rules seem common-sense. If you want to interrupt school, a church service or a funeral you need to have your ass kicked a couple of times. If you want to interfere with someone's meal, banking or night out you're not going to do anything but piss them off.
Wow look at all those stand-offs mandated; I can only imagine the google maps overlay for busking in Charleston looks like the end of a game of "Missile Defense."
Sorry, I'm old.
A) A(nother) good article, Paul.
B) Dwayne Green hates it.
But Dana Beach is such a great enviro-progressive Democrat. A wonderful man really.
Gang Stalking involves organized stalking and harassment perpetrated by informants, neighborhood watch, corrupt law enforcement, and other vigilantes. Gang Stalking is a modern and illegal version of “Cointelpro” because many are targeted for revenge and for whistleblowing.

yep, I agree that the church should pay their property Tax, but you and I know that is not going to happen. The Catholic church couldn't afford that . I also agree that Churches should become an LLC under the law. that way the Feds could not order them to support or condone that which in their Faith is not Scriptural .
TROLLSLAYER, that wouldn't make your property tax go down , it may allow you to not pay more in the future. :) Churches do not at present pay property Tax, not because they are Charities, but under our Constitution are exempt from that because they are a church . And the church doesn't really need to get permission from the State to Become a Church.
The city doesn't want more owners, it wants more renters. Renters pay, through their landlords, much higher property taxes and typically don't do annoying things like vote and go to council meetings to complain when something is wrong. The Beach Company is in the business of developing and selling property. They really don't care if the surrounding area likes it or not and really don't need to past the extent to where they need them to allow them to get the approvals they need with the local government to build what they want to build.
