Re: “Why did House Republicans refuse to vote on the Violence Against Women Act?

Fantastic comments - I am thankful for the insight - Does someone know where I can get ahold of a blank IRS 3520-A document to fill in ?

Re: “Racism still lives here

The NRA represents 5mil law-abiding US firearms owners. Committing murder is not a law-abiding act. Mass murders with firearms represent <1% of murders in the US. Logically, when one acts to solve a problem, one doesn't start with 1% of it.

We don't blame all Muslims for the acts of a few. Why would we blame all lawful firearms owners for the acts of a few?

You do have one valid point which is - what about the cop on duty there? I have not seen a timeline which accurately explains what happened. Did the guy get inside with the rifle and the cop was on duty at the door (and then not follow him in)? Was the cop inside and then he fled outside?

The lessons of Columbine seem to have been ignored here: engage the attacker aggressively, don't get into a hostage / negotiation situation. How many of those 49 dead bled to death on the floor in the 3 hours of negotiations?

Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

Of course things changed. Whites now have to second guess themselves and be quiet for fear of being called a racist.

Re: “Results of West Ashley bike lane study released

Now will this bike lane hAve painted stripes down the center!!?? Nothing I hate more than riding my bike on one side, and a team of 2 or more, who just have to ride together, refuse to split up!! I mean this would be a commuter lane right? Not a Tour de France practice strip that some may have to worry about getting run over on, kinda Iike the Ravenel Bridge has become?

Re: “Charleston's affordable housing shortage could be solved

AlexM please let us all know where the tons of affordable housing is in Mt Pleasant.

This obviously must be a problem created by the new mayor problem. Charleston has had a visionary leader for the last 40 years and is a model for other cities across the country.

Re: “Results of West Ashley bike lane study released

The test was a worst-case scenario in that there were no bikes replacing car trips in the closed lane, which would have reduced car traffic some. Previous traffic studies in other cities have shown that the difference between gridlock and free-flowing traffic is as little as a 3% increase, or a 2.9% decrease. So if only 1 out of 30 drivers lives close enough to ride a bike that would have a major effect on congestion. Of course a similar effect would be that one in thirty carpooling, but this is 'Murica and cars 'r' Freedumb!! and car-pooling is socialist or something.

Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

I wonder who Mr. Moredock blames gentrification of Charleston on?
Republicans?

In 1980 the population of Charleston was majority black with 2/3 of the residents African American. By 2010 only half of the the total number of blacks present in 1980 were in the city was now 2/3 white.

Certainly the visionary leader of the city, elected in 1975, supported and encouraged policies encouraging this rampant gentrification, while receiving a huge amount of black votes and support. yet I have never heard Mr Moredock mention it. If the Demographic trend continues there will be very blacks at all on the peninsula by in another ten years or so.

Re: “Did the Mother Emanuel tragedy change anything?

LiberalNeodipshit missed the part 80 years ago where the Democratic and Republican parties switched platforms entirely. Strom Fucking Thurmond was once a Democrat until he switched parties out of opposition to the Civil Rights Act.

Re: “Racism still lives here

It wasn't that the gun was useless it was that the security guard was useless with it. If you are paid to protect you don't run away. That's a semi automatic AR15 one shot with a trigger squeeze not spraying bullets. in that moment that handgun was as effective as any weapon to stop that shooter he just didn't do it, 300 people? cant anyone tackle this asshole ? Hes on his phone with the news and police? he can only shoot in straight lines. Somebody have some self preservation instinct and take him down that gun does not make him superman. This is going to happen more and more we need some heroes out there. I rather go out fighting than hiding or running away.

"Good guys were not allowed to possess guns"

So then you missed the fact that the Orlando club security guy had a gun and it proved useless.

Welcome to CCP though. You're going to be a real treat. Conservative concern troll is a very unique concept on the internet.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: Ep 11

Tipsy Yoda!!!!! Love it! One for the books. Hey, I admit I watch the show. And I will confess, I am one of those you allude to as being intellectual and smart, blah blah...however, I never made an excuse for watching the show. I think my point, was there is nothing wrong watching it, even if you have some brains..it's not beneath me. I guess I have no morals:) I'm a Yankee. A transplant from NYC, so I get a kick out of this show. I got so much flack when I told people in my neighborhood I watched the show. They said.... how could I watch such trash...easy..I watch some of the Housewives shows:) I even got one of my NYC girlfriends hooked on Southern Charm..she LOVES it. And a friend out in Palm Springs. We find it addicting.

No mention of Thomas' house. My NYC friend is an interior designer and we both have to say, Thomas maybe a total screw up, but boy does he have good taste in homes. That house was absolutely gorgeous. Really beautiful. Tastefully done. I wouldn't have changed a thing. Move in condition as far as I am concerned...and that is good coming from someone like myself:) But my friend and I, who discuss the show like we are a couple of shrinks, think that dinner party was staged. You need drama for these shows. Otherwise no renewal. I had thought that was the finale. Guess not. We also read that Thomas and Katherine are estranged again....she has not seen him in months and he has not given her any money..oh boy!!!!! i guess to be continued!!!!
