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

It would help if some of you actually read the article before posting stupid comments. They aren't banning anything, simply asking the state to consider it. NiteGoat, don't know what Constitution you're thinking about but the one I consult pretty regularly guarantees "the right of the people...to petition the Government for a redress of grievances". Nowhere does it say local government is not "the people". I can assure you I am greatly agggrieved by people walking around in public, including bars where they might be expected to drink alcohol, with any kind of weapon they want any time and appreciate my elected representative petitioning the state government on my behalf.

Re: “How John Lewis gets his Texas Hot Guts sausages to snap

just to hope I was not talking out my ass I visited Lewis BBQ today. as i would not stand in line for anyone's cooking i drove on a rainy Sunday to do it. even then I waited 15 minutes behind 8 people to order. the line isn't about the quality of the food it is about the lack of ability by the front of house.

as i sat in line i looked around and thought of the irony that this smokehouse is near Romney street and all i saw was a bunch of white people who looked like they came from the beach and golf course. not those who will help you make it through the winter months.

as a cook for over 20 years, 10 of them here in Charleston, let me say this. it's fucking meat. the brisket? not mouth watering. and i even asked for an end cut to get the "smoke". beyond that the "hot guts"? yeah, kielbasa with more heat than is comfortable.

this will be a nice space for a rave club when it sucks "Home Teams" exhaust and closes. i don't know about Home Team, but a homegrown franchise gets my vote over some dude with a bunch of press we have seen since they started welding their cookers so many months ago.

Austin? hope it's music is better than the food hype. BTW. Ask Chicks Fry House and it's Beard award winning founder about gentrification on the neck..

Re: “Hotly anticipated restaurant Le Farfalle opens Friday

Prong - please note the crispy potato vinaigrette, I believe this will be perfect for you as a substitute for the usual delicious fries. Also if you decide to fall off the vegetarian wagon, note the Ham of the Gods, Pata Negra - the Beluga caviar of hams, the Jamon de Iberico. This will be my comfort food place as Mike does not do meh only excellent. Plus if I lose the food and beverage police that accompany me everywhere, I can double down on the Jamon and Octopus.

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

No counseling needed for Prong, because he's right. Also Imma roll on Ignatz. Ignatz threw the brick, everybody knows that. Even when you O-bey the police many times bad things happen to young brown & black men all over the USA every single day. "They" are not all the same. "They" are angry and rightfully so. "They" do not all throw bricks just as not all police are bullies & bigots. Until Black Lives Matter as much as White Lives, "they" gonna keep on going. Let's be really honest, all lives should matter equally - but in reality they just don't right now. I hope this changes in my lifetime.

"The BLM protesters appear to be just any of many groups who do not obey police commands, take matters outside of their permitted actions, and then have someone throw a brick at the cops."

You ever read much about the colonial revolution against Great Britain?

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

check the local highways. at times of the day the traffic is >20-30% container trucks. SC's plan? dredge the rivers so larger ships can load an unload. All while they enjoy the nation's lowest gas prices. it's not LACK of focus, it's no focus whatsoever. And as long as the Beach Company has a stranglehold on local development that's not going to change either.

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

Influx of new residence? Heck, Mayor Woolsey and his Town of James Island can't even come close to dealing with its obligations to its existing residence. Meanwhile he isn't he violating the promise he used to get elected by raising taxes. Why is lying to get elected not an ethics violation? Any fool can stay within budget if they can raise revenue by fiat. But while Woolsey is an economics professor, he doesn't seem to have a clue regarding the cost benefits of municiple services. That's if you could even call the Town a municipality. Essentially it is an oligarchy, run by upper class bureauracratic elitest that is not going bankrupt anytime soon. Except perhaps morally. Clearly its residents deserve better. That might happen if the Town would merge with the City of Charleston. But don't hold your breath on that one. It just makes too much sense.

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

What a bunch of idiots, vying for the microphone to make themselves popular. Well, dumb asses, if you pass anything close to attempting to ban any "weapons with detachable clips" you'll all be looking for another job next election. That would definitely rank in the "death by stupidity" category.
Maybe we need some cleansing in the County Government, anyway.

The BLM protesters appear to be just any of many groups who do not obey police commands, take matters outside of their permitted actions, and then have someone throw a brick at the cops. Well, you stupid bastards, Charleston is not like Baltimore. Any more of this and you'll see the City Jail fill up quickly with your worthless asses, and your cases won't be heard until the next day. And anyone with a grain of intelligence (I doubt that exists) from the BLM (otherwise known as a Bowel Movement) would give up the guy who threw the brick if you ever want another permit to show your "cause" in Charleston. By the way, have you heard anything from that dumb "elder" from NAN on TV ? They said they wanted to "distance" themselves, but you don't hear anything on local news to prove it. They are all the same.

Re: “Giant oak falls inside College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Can't really blame the tree for wanting to get away from the whining snowflake generation in college now. This was once a place of critical thinking and challenging your opinions and ideas. Sadly, it's now a place of safe spaces and trigger warnings so these little kiddos don't get their feelings hurt or learn to think for themselves.

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

Have any of these gun-grabbers ever seen the way a shotgun maims the target? Imagine that for a minute...imagine how much worse the carnage would have been at the Pulse nightclub and how much more those poor people would have suffered. No amount of "control" will ever stop an evil, determined heart.

@Pronghorn
Capunti is also vegetarian and we would happily create a pasta and sauce combo you would enjoy.

Best,
