Re: “Inception

Good cast, good production values, good action and special effects. I want to say it was well written, I think it was, but to be honest, it's one of those convoluted story-within-a-story (maybe even a third story) things where if you tell friends afterwards and you admit to being confused, they make you feel stupid for not getting it as well as they did; when in fact they probably didn't get it any better. It was not Robert Altman tight, with his layers on layers. But, it doesn't completely leave you hanging either. I think i need to see it again, maybe three or four times, before I decide if the illusion holds up. But I have to say - with so much mind-warp going on, it's really not necessary to see it in a theater....

Re: “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

I felt like the director was too excited to have all the cool special effects at hand, and focused too much on that as opposed to the plot and the characters.

Re: “Of course Donald Trump made a joke about women on stage today at Boeing

And Saturday at his "Happy Place" (campaign rally with all of his friends - is he still running?), he misunderstood (must have, at least) a Fox News article about immigrants in Sweden and proclaimed to the crowd that a serious incident occurred there and they were having all kinds of problems with the immigrants. I say misunderstood, because otherwise, he outright lied in order bolster his immigration order, which is not even needed given we've suffered no terrorist attacks from immigrants of any of the 7 countries ever.

In 2014, Trump tweeted that we cannot continue to let Obama use Airforce One, at a cost of a million a day, for "politics and play". However, with three trips to Mar-O-Lago and one to a campaign rally in four weeks, Trump may also qualify for "Politics and Play" at a cool mill' a day. I know there are those that don't like facts but their President is either a pathological liar, or this President stuff is way beyond his and his cabinet's abilities.

Am I the only one who is appalled at the blatant hypocrisy in play here?

If nothing else, this "flagging" convinces me of the potency of the Confederate flag, and the need to remove it from all public places bar museums.

Re: “Protesters gather in North Charleston ahead of Trump's arrival

So how many showed up. According to reports, the Union lost by 75%. I think they spent millions trying to get in. Boo hoo. And if memory serves me correctly, right before the second election of Obama, we saw him with Putin's right hand man, whispering into his ear, with the live mike on, saying to him, when he is re-elected, he will be able to get things done a lot easier for the both of him. Gee, how easy you liberals forget...or Hillary's reset Red Button. Never in my life have I ever seen this Chicken Little hysteria. And to blame Russia for Trump winning the election? and Trump had something to do with it? That this is high treason...that you are talking about impeachment. None of you just cannot deal that you lost. U give him way too much credit. You all think he is a imbecile. So what is it? Is he stupid, or is he that smart that he could be in cahoots with Russian intelligence to win the election of Hillary, who had billions behind her and has been in gov't all her life and had entry with all the higher ups in gov't. Give me a break already.

Re: “A look at Boeing's new North Charleston-made 787-10

Shouldn't the title read North Charleston assembled ? The parts are produced around the world and put together by the workers here in Charleston. Not knocking the fine work they do just trying clarify. Wouldn't want the City Paper to be accused of "fake news".

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford and Paul taking lead on Obamacare replacement; Proposal for free tech school in S.C.

How quickly we forget the basis of the ACA was originally a conservative idea. But it's good the Freedom Caucus is endorsing Sanford and Paul's new plan. The Caucus values personal liberty and fiscal restraint, so it makes sense they would support a man who wasted taxpayer dollars having an affair and a "libertarian" who doesn't believe in people having control over their own bodies.
