Re: “Robert Moss on King Cake and creeping pan-Southernism

Turns out Catholics exist in Charleston. Just because you've never heard about king cakes doesn't make them a recent novelty. New Orleans also isn't the center of Catholic or Cajun culture (it's more like Lafayette) in Louisiana, but it gets that label from outsiders like yourself who only know Mardi Gras as a debaucherous, drunken celebration. It's a religious one. Hint: Ash Wednesday is tomorrow.

Re: “My Three Dogs

Disappointed is an understatement. I have been a loyal customer bringing my pup here for daycare and intermittent boarding, but I will NEVER return and would strongly discourage others from trusting them to care for their pets. I reluctantly left my fur-baby for a 10 day work trip, only to get a call on the last day that she was so matted and tangled that they couldn't bathe her and would need to completely shave her. I was obviously shocked to hear that they hadn't brushed her in my absence. Even more shocking is they was the staff handled the issue. They took no responsibility at all, blaming me for not "adding on the brushing service" to her stay, despite never having offered that to me. I assumed basic upkeep and wellbeing was included in her extended stay, shame on me. My poor puppy is so matted and tangled that she is crying when I so much as pet her. If the staff had been petting or attending to her, they too would have noticed that something was wrong. I stopped by another groomer on my way home, hoping to salvage her beautiful coat, and she confirmed that to detangle her at this point would be cruel. An egregious example of neglect topped with the staffs complete disregard for customers feelings... all I can say is WOW.

Re: “Muhiyidin d'Baha sits down with Quintin Washington two days after arrest during Confederate flag protest

So, Chesterboy, what you're saying is that him fighting against it validates it? If he did nothing, would that not also validate it? I'm sure it wouldn't matter to you how he opposed it, it would all give validity to the cause, right?

No one is supreme over anyone else. We're all people. We have the same thoughts, feelings and abilities. We all get traffic tickets, jail sentences, college degrees and Nobel prizes for the same things. What separates us is language, distance and culture. These are the very things that we should peacefully engage one another on, to grow closer as human beings - because we're much more alike than we are different - instead of using those things to divide and conquer based on nationalistic differences or melanin count. The separatist/racist mindset is the problem, and it's the very reason why his reaction was one of the noblest of responses. Fighting against the problem of evil is the only way to reach a solution of peace. To not fight against evil is to fight for it. If the things white supremacists do are done to them, they'll be in an uproar, because they know it's unfair. It's not only unfair if it's done to them. It's unfair against all of us. Anyone operating under the double standard which says otherwise sits at the height of hypocrisy and is the cancer of humanity. Unity doesn't cause problems, division does. Be part of the solution.

Re: “Protesters clash outside of Bree Newsome lecture

I have nothing but admiration for the man who was brave enough to take down that damn flag that represents nothing but racism and oppression. It's A disgrace that he was arrested. Shame on the Charleston police department.

Re: “Muhiyidin d'Baha sits down with Quintin Washington two days after arrest during Confederate flag protest

Technically not only did he commit a crime, but he also promotes a view of an honored Southern symbol that gives power to white supremacists - the very people he claims to be fighting against.

The guy carrying that flag should have been charged with a hate crime. Anyone not ashamed of carrying that flag in this day and age is a racist dick!

Re: “Stephen King adaptation Mr. Mercedes filming downtown in Wagener Terrace

When I read that Anton Yelchin had signed on for the title role, I bought the book with the intent of finishing it before the show aired. On June 19th, 2016, I threw the book in the trash.

While I wish the cast and crew well in this project, I won't be watching it.

Re: “U.S. Sen. Tim Scott and Rep. Mark Sanford will hold their own local town hall meetings this weekend

Senator Tim Scott and Representative Mark Sanford,
I have called and left messages and I wanted to follow up with this communication.

I have been watching and absorbing the events as they have unfolded over the course of the last month or so and have been very concerned about the direction our nation has been taking and the international community's view as a "not-so-great nation". It's was bad enough for him to question judges decisions, even based on their ethnicity, but he clearly has something to hide because, then the unthinkable happens! President Trump unilaterally declares the media the "enemy" of the people and takes the final step of shutting out the media that refuses to allow Trump to dictate his communication without any vetting of what he says. We are in a dangerous time now and I fear, not only for the nation, but for personal safety. We can no longer be informed about what is really taking place in Washington except through our representation. We are beginning to get into a desperate situation and the subversion of the US Constitution cannot be allowed to continue.

Please take action at once to reel in this Oligarch! Now, before it is too late!

Re: “The conversation we should all be having about gun violence and firearm safety

Fair and balanced article for the most part. Respect for the second amendment has to be the foundation for any discussion regarding keeping guns out of the wrong hands. There can be uncompromising support for a constitutional right with room for situational adjustments. Justice Scalia expressed that below in his Supreme Court decision that supported the 2nd amendment but allowed room for such adjustments.


Scalia quote from DC vs Heller, majority opinion

III

Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose. See, e.g., Sheldon, in 5 Blume 346; Rawle 123; Pomeroy 152153; Abbott333. For example, the majority of the 19th-century courts to consider the question held that prohibitions on carrying concealed weapons were lawful under the Second Amendment or state analogues. See, e.g., State v. Chandler, 5 La. Ann., at 489490; Nunn v. State, 1 Ga., at 251; see generally 2 Kent *340, n. 2; The American Students Blackstone 84, n. 11 (G. Chase ed. 1884). Although we do not undertake an exhaustive historical analysis today of the full scope of theSecond Amendment , nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.26

Re: “The conversation we should all be having about gun violence and firearm safety

I agree with Jshicke, this was unusually well balanced, something you don't seem to get from news media today. My opinion is that rights are not privileges, the only qualification needed for a federally enumerated right is citizenship in these United States of America just as the only qualification for a state enumerated right is citizenship in that state. Once you've said you must be this age or this sex or have this license or training it's no longer a right, it's a privilege. If the people of this nation want to remove the federally granted right to bear arms there is a process laid out in the constitution allowing them to do so, repeal the second amendment, which will allow the states to decide individually if they want to create a right or privilege to bear arms or outlaw them entirely. If we allow the second amendment to be turned into a privilege outside of that process then every other right we have is subject to the same denigration and we'll soon have no rights at all.
