Re: “The Agenda: Gowdy poised to take chairmanship?; Times Square suspect jailed at Hanahan brig in 2013; Opioid aid

Most of trump's administration started out with unsecured and personal servers and only changed after being exposed, so hypocrisy anyone?

Re: “Mayor of New Orleans makes the case for removing Confederate monuments

A great American once said"Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death".
Another note is: The Confederate Flag had "nothing" to do with "slavery" & therefore was "not" "racist".

Re: “Mayor of New Orleans makes the case for removing Confederate monuments

As a father of three wonderful children who are all successful citizens,I have a philosophy of life & one of many.
When educating our children,we don't "remove" an object that they are fond of or "not"fond of,for they will always wonder "why" Mom & Dad did this.What we do is "EDUCATE" them on why this is what it is & what it means to "history"or to "anything".
This is what we call education not brainwashing.

Trey Gowdy is a skirt lifting coward
He places the GOP before country
Our President has an open love affair with Russia
and it appears he is going to play party
An unsecured email is starting to sound a little insignificant

Re: “Woman who dressed as dinosaur, startled carriage horses surrenders to police

Why else would she be in the costume if it were not to scare the horses to cause an accident? She was asked three times to stop and continued the act. She should be brought up on charges of terrorism. She caused injury, and put the passengers lives in jeopardy. She disrupted a legitimate touring business, that is licensed through the city and state. And left the scene of an accident that she caused.

Re: “Newly released jailhouse videos show the strained relationship between Dylann Roof and his family

While I understand the parents must be hurting to an incredible degree, I'm disappointed that the father notes "You know everything you've done reflects on us as a family", as if that is what matters.

With regard to Gowdy's heading the oversight committee, it's like asking the "fox to guard the henhouse."

Re: “It’s official: New law allows S.C. distilleries to serve up mixed drinks

And of course we know that Joe Riley park is "just"across the street from the City of Charleston Police Dept. That should be a lot more revenue.

Re: “Person dressed as dinosaur startles Charleston carriage horses, injuring driver

Hoping that they secure the radical activist and fine/jail him/her. Although I heard it was a woman.

I would personally like to insert the needle. For free. I'm a nurse and can find a vein on a turnip. This polyp would be an interesting venture for hard-to-find veins. Might take a lot of tries....too bad, huh?

Re: “Woolfe Street developers reach agreement with city on workforce housing fee

So if you build housing you must let some of it go at a loss? That's much better than allowing the creation of population density which lowers the price of housing for everyone with the side benefit of making mass transit efficient and affordable. We don't need no stinking housing, we just need the limited housing we have to cost renters less than it costs the owners because despite the well known fact that not allowing housing increases the cost of housing we can do it better than 100% of the world can, kind of like communism has failed everywhere because they didn't do it wrong, but we can do it right.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham reserved in reaction to WaPo scoop; Gowdy out of FBI running; SC-5 runoff today

As a fellow naif when it comes to NC Constitutional Law and Federal Constitutional Law, I also think my opinion based on 90 seconds of reading makes more sense than the actual justices that studied and heard the case for many hours as part of their careers of many decades. I will now pretend that there is no historical nor political context to the decision nor the barely-veiled motives behind the NCGOP actions, because that (a) requires less reading and (b) supports my all-important opinion.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham reserved in reaction to WaPo scoop; Gowdy out of FBI running; SC-5 runoff today

I read through the NC voter ID laws and I don't understand what the big deal was. They offered free ID's to anyone who didn't have a driver's license, passport, etc. People over 70 weren't required. Absentee ballots were still a thing. Showing an ID to go vote doesn't seem like a crazy concept to me.

Re: “How Dylann Roof’s commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution

For what it is worth, I'm pretty sure the title of this article was changed from the original. Nonetheless, I agree with your point.

Re: “How Dylann Roof’s commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution

i took your clickbait at "How Dylann Roofs commitment to racist ideals doomed him to execution." Nowhere in your story did i see how killing a bunch of people in a church is cool if it's not racist.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham and Scott differ on Trump; Teachers training to help Gullah speakers; McMaster playing politics with veto?

He's now compromised intelligence personnel and intelligence gathering as related to ISIS, (unknowingly?) while apparently boasting about the intelligence to which he has access. This compromise may lead to domestic attacks given we've lost an avenue of critical intel of ISIS plans.

Can Trump really be this naive? Are his advisers feeding him fake news? Do his advisers even know how to vet fake from real news before feeding? I believe his entire advisory committee may be inept.
