Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

Your self-awareness and calm introspection at this point in life, one we will all reach sooner or later in one form or another, is admirable. I hope for the best outcome for you and your family.

Re: “Thank you for my beautiful life

You have been the epitome of grace and dignity and an example to us all that"for those who have fought for it, life has a flavor the protected will never know". With love, light, and prayer from a big fan.

Re: “Stegelin: Donald Trump's first choice for VP

If you are, have or know of anyone in your family that is a member of the LGBT community, a Muslim, an hispanic, etc, a vote for this pair would indicate you care more for bombastic behavior than than you care for you or your own family. This pair will destroy pluralistic (multiple faith/ no faith) freedoms and will actively work to "christianize" this country into a virtual theocracy. We were almost there with the old "Blue Laws" where your only choices for something to do on Sunday morning was go to church or sit home because those religious "blue laws" had the state on lockdown all day. These oppressive laws are still in place in rural communities but pluralistic cities have dropped them in favor of REAL freedoms. Everyone gets to now enjoy freedom. Those who prefer to go to church and take their "day of rest" are free to do that. Those who prefer to shop or dine out are free to do that. And "Blue Laws" not withstanding, those who prefer to engage only in opposite-sex relationships and marriages are free to do that. Those who prefer to engage in same-sex relationships and marriage are free to do that. Those who prefer to worship on Saturday are free to do that. Those who prefer to pray privately are free to do that. Those who prefer not to pray are free to do that. Women who prefer to control their health are free to do that - almost. Women who want government to control their health are free to do that. But these freedoms are out the door if this pair become leaders of the free world with a finger on the "Button".

Re: “Charleston can't handle an influx of new residents

Sonia Faye, not sure if you know it, but Charleston has been under Democrat government for the last 40 years, so you can stop blaming everything on the other party. They are the ones allowing the growth in Charleston, your party.

Re: “Jeff Cook wants to sell your house if you're moving to Canada because of Trump or Clinton

Jeff is driving down the cost of a agent representing you for a sale. He has under cut the market with his %. Long overdue in my opinion

Re: “This is Charleston's opportunity to lead by example — once again

I may not be aware of all of the "positive steps forward" that were taken after Emanuel. Please enlighten. A few institutions with deep historical ties to the white supremacy (Coastal Community Foundation, Boeing, MUSC) imported some high profile black people. But beyond that?

A) How much did it cost to build the place?

B) In general, what were the rents?

Re: “Charleston County Council will consider resolution opposing assault weapons

No one needs a gun to protect themselves until they really need one.
Guns are a great deterrent to home invasion. Burris Liquor store employees on Meeting St have been carrying firearms for decades. Guess how many robberies they have had. Zero!

Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

Apologies if it was matastrophe, Chris Haire.

Is East Bay Deli putting a fright into y'all over ad revenue because I won't stop talking about how their management pockets the employees' electronic gratuity?

Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

My East Bay Deli gratuity comment has been removed/censored.

I'm just now beginning to lose respect for you, Chris Haire.

Re: “The Agenda: Larger ships in Charleston Harbor; Police looking for potential rally instigator

Cid--

As has become depressingly familiar, you miss the point by a staggering margin.

I was merely pointing out the irony of your blind secessionist reverence considering your statements about the heroes/traitors being defined by the victors. If that were the case, your obsession with the noble lost cause of the so-called War of Northern Aggression would be moot.

Furthermore, it is clear to me that your sympathies lie with one and not the other, excluding the dementia of your belief in the innocence of the South, because of the nature of the Black Lives Matter movement itself.

As evidenced by this falsehood I will now address.

'Meanwhile BLM is a violent and racist movement openly motivating some black Americans to murder police, preferably white police.'

False false false false.

BLM is a decentralized movement to be sure, but it has roundly and openly denounced the actions of the Dallas and Baton Rouge shooters.

If any demographic would be able to recite the 'lone wolf' narrative by heart, I would imagine it would be a white southern conservative. Go ahead, you know the words.....

Might as well strap him into the gurney at Terra Haute right now.

Fuck the Death Penalty. It makes me ashamed to be an American.

To be fair to matastrophe, what he said in an earlier article's comment section about this fiasco sums it up:

Lowest. Bidder.

Re: “The Agenda: McMaster to speak at RNC; Group pushes back against SCE&G hikes; Trump speech fallout

I know, man. That's part of the problem.

Yet when one asks any employee there if they receive electronic gratuities, they ALL say that they don't; that it goes to management. Anyone: try it if you don't believe me. It seems like you have now, Ima.
