Re: “Naked and Unafraid

I had experienced nudism many years ago with my exhusband. Like the sisters I too was hesitant but I found I really enjoyed not being "trapped" in clothes! Then in 2010 in had a friend who invited me to Haulover beach in south Miami so that was my second experince and we had so much fun playing in the ocean.
Well, a couple of months ago my new husband of five years asked me if I would mind going to Cedar Creek. He had never been to a nudist community and was interested in trying it. I jumped at the chance knowing he would love it. So we took a tour and fell in love with the people there!! We are now members of AANR and Cedar Creek is close enough to us that we can make day trips. My biggest problem now.....is keeping my hubby in clothes at home...lol

Re: “Vote? No.

After 240 years of existence, Americas best choices for the leader of our country is between a modern day Hitler or his opponent, a political liar and the establishment that elected her, who actively and purposely shut out one of the most altruistic, honest politicians to ever run for office. While I am choosing the liar to prevent the Hitler, it does not mean I will follow along like a good sheeple. We will be watching Billiary and her wall street cronies, slithery snake oil saleswoman that she is.

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

Of all the inane and histrionic comments about the bike lane it has to be Dwayne Green asking if traffic off the Peninsula will be impacted by a bike lane. On the other bridge.

I defy anyone to complain about traffic on the Legare Bridge outside of morning drive time. In fact it's probably the least amount of traffic anywhere.

Let's get safe crossing built.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

I wouldn't call CCP's reporting diverse, I'd call it morbidly lopsided. God (or whatever entity you revere) help you if you disagree. But hey, freedom of speech and all that.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

Oh yes, the three steps of arguing with a non-LGBT supporter as written by the rainbow coalition.

Step 1 - Say they are really Gay and do not want to admit it. If that fails...

Step - 2 - Say they have a small penis. if that fails....

Step 3 - Call them 'A Stupid Poopy Head.'

Diverse reporting is one thing, but treating the straight as if THEY are the minority, is not realistic, nor is expecting everyone to support your 'diverse' lifestyles.

However, you are correct in that this is not the forum where I should have outed my feelings toward CCP. I do apologize for that.

Re: “Vote? No.

I respect your arguments, Mat, but I see a "yuge" difference between the candidates.Trump is a fool & a buffoon,probably mentally ill, and Hillary a more or less center-right, AIPAC-subservient, probably sane person who seems to have been pulled a little toward the left by the influence of Sanders. Trump could get even much worse, but she may improve a bit. Anyway, half a loaf--or even a crumb--is worth choosing over nothing.

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

When I first transferred back to Charleston in 2004, I was immediately reminded why so few people do bike around here: my predecessor LTJG Garrett Wonders was killed by a legally-blind oaf driving a delivery truck, an oaf that as far as I know never faced any charges for killing a fellow citizen, Navy officer, and potential Olympian. I've never been particularly comfortable riding outside my neighborhoods since. If we want to see less traffic, we need fewer cars on the road. We cannot reduce the number of people needing to get to work, so we can only hope for:
1. Greater carpooling
2. Greater use of public transport
3. Lesser use of cars in general

Each of these represent major behavioral changes, and people are disinclined to change their behaviors. Incentives are required, because the positive punishment (of greater time spent in soul-sucking traffic jams) is not strong enough to change behavior when people view the alternatives as unpleasant or even dangerous. I'd like to be a regular bike commuter, and the semi-protected bike lanes along the Johnnie Dodds access road are a great feature. However those are a rarity in this area, as is bicycle parking and a bike commute without someone in a lifted pickup buzzing you while shouting obscenities. Relief from traffic will take effort in terms of time, public awareness, infrastructure, and of course money.

Also I can now say with authority that the condition of our roads in general is absolutely deplorable. It is hard to bike on the line or shoulder when the road is crumbled past both.

Re: “Vote? No.

Since our state is going to go to Trump, we have the luxury of voting our consciences, even if that means not voting for national candidates. I'm going to vote again for the deeply experienced, knowledgeable, committed Hillary Clinton despite her flaws because I've not revised my voting standards for this one particular candidate to demand perfection. If addressing anthropogenic climate change, universal health care and women's rights is conservative, then so be it, although I feel that there are a lot of conservatives on this site that would bristle at such a characterization. You know, since they absolutely, positively reject all of those things with every fiber of their beings.

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

Well done Stephanie. Thank you for the level-headed, logical and clear argument for more bike and pedestrian access in Charleston. More clearly marked bicycle lanes = less cars on the roads.

Re: “Local LGBT students are forced to look outside of the classroom for guidance

Education of the plight of the LGBT community can inform the ignorant (able to learn but less informed) but can never reach the stupid (lack of the ability to learn), unfortunately. But we can always try.

If anyone doesn't like the diverse reporting of CCP, then a suggestion would be to forever tune into Faux News, read Brietbart online and/or engage any other extreme-right media outlet to get your hard-on. In many cases, anger at our community is just an indicator of a closet case trying to remain hidden, but stupid may apply here.

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

Bicycles are the future of Charleston? Come on, get real. Has the bike/ped lane on the Ravenel bridge reduced traffic to and from downtown? No, it has not, nor will this over the Ashley. It will become evident when the DOT reclaims this lane for vehicular traffic

Re: “It's time to merge beyond bitching about bike lane traffic

I've posted this before and I'll probably post it again later, but the test made was the worst case, installing the bike lane that nobody uses. It still only had a 1 minute adverse effect on the transit time over the bridge, imagine if everyone within biking distance of the bridge took a bike instead of driving.
