Re: “New Theatre Charleston head to offer a fresh point of view

I'd like to quickly clarify that I was not the founder of Theatre Charleston. While I was the organization's first employee, it was founded by 5 Charleston area theatre organizations. -Emily Wilhoit

Re: “Social to become Poogan's Smokehouse

If they are going to sell out, they should SELL OUT and go full-on tourist. Pirate themed frozen drinks, slave themed Sysco chicken, plantation themed retail grits, etc... but BBQ? No fat insipid mom from suburban Atlanta (his target market) is going to want to eat BBQ on lower King. She's never seen it on Food TV and it doesn't jive with what she knows from Southern Living.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

I thought to respond to the "people don't need…" arguments against firearms.

People don't need iPhones.
People don't need Porsches.
Men don't need maternity care.
People don't need Common Core.
Girls don't need HPV vaccines.

People may want these things, they may even be considered helpful by some. But they are not needed.

If you don't want an iPhone - don't purchase one.
If you don't want a Porsche - don't purchase one.
If you don't want men to be covered by maternity care - don't purchase the ACA plans.
If you don't want Common Core - go to private school, home school or move.
If you don't want the HPV vaccine for your daughter - don't get it.

If you'd like a well manufactured, American-Made firearm, PSA may have something for you.

It's a choice.

Re: “The Southernization of the American Economy

"I am doing well, so there is no problem" - a thing people say when they struggle with logical fallacies.

Who decides what proportion of gross revenue is allocated to profits? What is considered an acceptable profit margin? Why are corporation in developed nations able to pay more and afford more benefits to their workers? Why do they pay their dead-weight executives less?

The problem is that, in order to meet the unrealistic expectations foisted upon them by shareholders, corporations seek to cut labor costs (compensation, benefit, hours, etc.)--thereby fucking the very people that generate their revenues to begin with.

Re: “The Southernization of the American Economy

"Someone fell for the 'Unions are MAKING me jack my consumer prices through the roof because treating my employees like human beings is TOO expensive' line."
No, I fell for a simple combination of 4th grade math and business 101-If a company's expenses increase significantly, and a huge increase in pay for unskilled and probably uneducated labor certainly qualifies; then to not lose profit they must raise prices.

And, BTW, I have worked for a large corporation and been paid well.
Because I was worth it.

Re: “The Southernization of the American Economy

The plant I happen to work at offers decent pay,good health care,sick pay, vacations, holidays and good retirement for the tasks I'm asked to do with safety being the most important part of the job.I have yet to see any volunteers with the exception of blood drives and toys for tots at christmas.And thanks for asking but my familys just fine. I dont see doing my job as a sacrifice, and yes, I would like to see the company make money,that keeps my paychecks coming.Thats how I share in their success.What exactly is your point?

Jeff,

The Sesame characters are Muppets. Kermit is actually on both shows.

Re: “Question #3: What U.S. city is 'doing it right?'

"Mat, I'd like to know if any of these candidates would be willing to invite Google to Charleston...."

Asking a major corporation here would not be municipal broadband. It would be corporate welfare.

That said, it's hard at this point to see how any municipal broadband operations work without at least some public money getting funneled to private ISPs. I'm sure it's possible, but I will admit I haven't studied that one out yet.

Also, I'm fairly certain that the City Paper (and possibly others) in town went back in time and altered the course of history so that Ginny Deerin would be first in these articles. It's the only theory that fits all the facts I have conveniently arranged in a particular order.

Re: “The Southernization of the American Economy

"(The answer to all of these problems is progressive taxation, socialism and regulation. But you assholes would rather die in a gunfight after a healthcare bankruptcy and an extended unemployment with no safety net than see taxes raised a single fucking penny.)"

The Charleston City Paper comments section closed today, following what was described as "possibly the best thing ever said there, or anywhere else on the internet."
