Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

If you're not Native American, you need to go back where your ancestors came from because immigrants tyrannically invaded and took over their lands.

Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

I suppose it's also anecdotal that no one from any of the countries under the ban has killed American citizens, but the vast majority of terrorist attacks in this country since 9/11 have been by American citizens. It's also anecdotal you are more likely to be killed by a car than killed by a terrorist.

You are defending authoritarianism, plain and simple, because you're irrationally frightened. This is not going to make any of us safer, and it's tragic you think it will.

Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

Throwing around anecdotal evidence of those who are legitimate refugees (children) to support your straw man argument glaringly overlooks that terrorists have already infiltrated the west blending in with refugees. The attacks in Paris proved that. A 90 day temporarily ban to reassess the current vetting system seem reasonable.

Name calling those who are legitimately concerned about the safety of all Americans cowards, is not only pathetic but indicates you'd happily sacrifice American lives on the altar of political correctness.

Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

Not that facts matter to Trump or his supporters: http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/st…

Obama went through the proper legal channels as well and consulted with the State Department and DHS on carrying out the order, which, if you take five minutes to research it, is not the same as Trump's decree at all.

To Trump supporters, I ask this: Even if you agree with the ban, how can you support the way it is being carried out? We just heard for eight years how executive orders are the sign of a dictator. Or does that only apply when black presidents who are Democrats sign them?

This ban is the brainchild of a self-proclaimed white nationalist (Bannon) who went on record saying the wanted to destroy the state by sewing chaos. It was not vetted by Trump's legal team, DHS, or the State Department. No one on the administration is on the same page, and now Trump and Bannon are working to silence the dissenters. That is not democracy. That is fascism. You cannot possibly claim to love this country and what it stands for and support these dangerous men.

Dan, everybody is welcome to their opinion of food quality, but for you to state that a first-generation Mexican immigrant "hasn't a clue what real Mex is..." is just too ignorant to put aside. Have you even met him?

Re: “Dozens rally in Marion Square to oppose immigration ban

They protested at the Charleston Holocaust Memorial, dedicated to Jews who died in the Holocaust, in support of a temporary ban, to protect all Americans, on the influx of "immigrants / refugees" from seven failed state / terrorist supporting nations who regularly exterminate Jews, plan and execute the destruction of Israel and will not ever acknowledge the exist of the Jewish state.

The hypocrisy is thick but I doubt if any of them could even understand that.

Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

There was no travel ban in place before Saturday. Those seven countries were not on the visa waiver list (the setup that allows me to travel to, say, France with only a passport but no visa, and vice-versa) but there was no ban. The level of vetting is high, raised by President Obama in response to a specific incident in which militant bomb makers had evaded the screen. If you're talking refugees, the process is incredibly long and the refugees themselves cannot determine the country they go to.

Perhaps if our President Trump would be specific about what portion of the vetting is insufficient, and what reason already-legal-resident Green-Card holders should be banned from the country, and why the entire refugee program for anyplace in the world is suspended, people might not have an issue with it. But our President isn't, so we do.

Re: “How Charleston Music Hall combats online ticket scalping

If venues would enforce for buyers to actually use their tickets...like by photo ID, the second hand market could never exist to begin with. The idea that consumers create this market because they buy tickets from them is ridiculous. The second hand market only exists because venues allow it to.

Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

The countries listed in the ban were already under restrictive measures and subject to a travel ban by the Obama administration. The biggest gripe about Bush was he didn't keep us safe on 9/11. This country is now at war with Islamic terrorists with a post 9/11 mentality. Finally we have a president taking action to protect all Americans from potential terrorism from failed states and/or those that promote terrorism, and you're have an issue with this?

Re: “Nikki Haley's first press conference as Trump administration U.N. ambassador: "We're taking names"

Trump is going to keep us safe by keeping the evil Muslims out of the country, except for the ones where trump has business ties, of course. Trump is using personal interests to guide his diplomatic policy. So it is OK for a Muslim from Egypt, Saudi Arabia (9/11 terrorist source), Turkey, Jordan or Oman because that travel WILL affect Trump's business. http://www.cnn.com/2017/01/29/politics/how…

Weren't the 9/11 terrorists from Saudi Arabia - a country not included in Trump's ban?
I highly disagree that terrorists of any religious denomination are "adherents" to the religion. Rather I'd say they are the exceptions.

Re: “Here's how to get the most out of your Pounce Cat Café experience

What a bummer way to review an awesome place, welcoming staff and happy kitties! Also, providing a social service!! They even have a Speed Dating night which you didn't include. The included drink is coffee, tea, beer or wine - and being honest, eating is not the point of going to a cat cafe. I'm not sure you were the best "animal lover" to choose to review the place - the point is it's a novelty, its FUN and the girls are doing a great job managing demand with their online reservation system.
