Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

Our Youth are deceived : by the tenured perpetual students (their Utopian professors) who are responsible for this nations penal sentence to FAIL AS EVERY OTHER SOCIALIST COUNTRY HAS THROUGHOUT HISTORY.

If y'all Utopian professors could get a real job you would have. However, same Federal Sharia Law proponents (ie CLINTON, HUMA WEINER, and the host of random and sundry political CRIMINALS HOLDING WE THE PEOPLE HOSTAGE via OFFERING FREE GIFTS TO NON WORKING SLACKERS AND CLUELESS kids at the expense OF TRULY CONCERNED AND STUDIED PATRIOTS), perpetuate SLAVERY IN THESE CRIMINAL STATES OF AMERIKA AND excel at DECEIVING OUR YOUTH!

Your day is coming you political criminals. Karma rox!

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

GOP spin created "crooked" Hillary. Email speculation is exactly the underhanded tactic Comey is undertaking, knowing that HRC's name can't be cleared by election day, fostering doubt, of which I have none. Trump's BAD for America and already has incited anger and violence, just like what happened in a bygone despot era:

Re: “Now is when voters decide what 'Making America great' really means

Artrogue is right. I despise both candidates - a silly oompa loompa (Trump) and a closet Republican (Clinton). I can not believe that these two are the cream of the political crop in the USA. I voted for Bernie. Cid95 is also right, the election hoopla reached a daily torturous loop on CNN months ago.

Re: “Halls Chophouse now selling its signature steak sauce

Hahahaha Muskie and Sterling are from my team. Muskie, we can probably use the Harris Teeter store brand and get 4 bottles. Not a fan of Hall's at all. They have mail order meat from Allen Brothers so why not completely smother it with a sauce.

Re: “Gentrification hits home (and businesses) in Charleston

Once True Value goes I will have no choice but to drive all the way to Royall Ace in Mt P. as I straight up refuse to go into a frigging Lowes with its employees who hide in the back and who don't know jack shit about anything they sell and could care less. With traffic and flooding it may take me an hour or two. Once they put that circle in front of Royall, I am convinced some confused asshole (probably from Ohio - my Karma and all) will wack me a good one. I'll be sure to drive the "Classic" Rover albatross so I can finally be rid of it, I'll just carry Akim's phone number on the ride out there and back. As for King Street lately, I often get confused as to where I am at and have to be reminded I am not at Tanger or "The Mall" anywhere USA. We have been a vocal supporters for incentives to keep small family owned businesses in Charleston for years but nobody in a position to do something about it seems to give a rats ass. Bidnezz as usual in the Chuck. Rents going up and the chains moving in. All the squawking in the world after the fact will not make a difference. The Chuck, West Ash and Mt P. we all grew up in is long gone, the fat lady already sang and that boat done sailed, Dwayne. Welcome to Stepford.

It's in there (in a parenthetical). It moved to a nice, shiny spot in Mt. Pleasant in 2006 and closed pretty soon after. Just wasn't the same.

Re: “Man dressed as bottle of 'Roofies' is the worst Charleston Halloween costume of 2016

1. Go to bar
2. Insult lots of other customers, make them want to leave, costing owner money
3. Be surprised when owner has you leave instead

Brilliant! I mean, I can't imagine why women just won't let rape jokes slide like they used to... they only get funnier with time and rape is SO rare after all.

I can't tell you how many times a month I went to Your Place when I was at CofC. I love how they always had sweet tea in big colored tupperware pitchers. The bathroom doors had signs that said "inboards" and "outboards." I still miss it all the time. Simple, to-the-point, and perfect.

Re: “It's time to bring back slavery

Yeah I don't agree with the way you push to treat the slave, I wouldn't enforce slavery on anyone I would give them a choice to live with you and give your life for the land but as a world instead of separately pushing for rights that other lands have we all have the same rights and as a people look after the land and it's people, being hired out to the middle to higher class people making the world like downtown abbey without all the douches which is kinda what the world is coming to be like, no-one really acts like a douche in the movies anymore and if they do they should be wisely made fun of, in a gentle way so as not to break him and leave him without his spirit, fair but firm should be the way you take care of a slave and don't get him mixed up with a sexual being his rights are to be protected or you can't have one until you've spent time yourself as a slave about a year should be enough might learn a few things as a people with a law like that, I can see us evolving into a well established global society with slavery at the forefront...government owned slaves as well as #automateduber; the middle to higher class are gonna help the government get back on its feet

Re: “Gentrification hits home (and businesses) in Charleston

Oh, yes!The whole area is a victim of gentrification! I remember when Wild Dunes was just that - wild dunes roamed by wild goats, and Mount pleasant was a sleepy village populated by some of the nicest people you could hope to meet. West Ashley was full of neighborhoods like the one I grew up in - quiet & peaceful. Now these places are full of "people from off" who don't give a hoot about us! They want gated communities where they and their friends can have their HOA's tell everyone how to look and live just like them!

These people also don't give a hoot about the peninsular neighborhoods. They are buying up houses that have been in families for generations & driving up prices in those neighborhoods (Wagner Terrace comes to mind) so that the remaining families face sharp property tax increases.

And the mom-and-pop stores that are closing all over the area just breaks my heart! I don't want to lose the Doscher's on Savannah Highway to a Whole Foods! We have a perfectly good Earth Fare over on Folly Road for those who want to shop for organic & GMO foods. Doscher's has been on Savannah Highway since, what, 1968? They carry local produce & sausage from Burbage's Meats, just down the road in Ravenel. They are a local icon.

What are we to do? How do we stop these people from off? How do we stop the developers from further trashing our city and her environs?

Re: “Black Power chic

Your friend didn't invent the upraised black fist symbolism. It clearly means "black power" and has for decades, that's well understood.

Would you wave and smile to someone in a "white power" t-shirt? I didn't think so.

Re: “Man dressed as bottle of 'Roofies' is the worst Charleston Halloween costume of 2016

"...the bottle ofRohypnol was eventually escorted off the premises..."

So, he got kicked out? His costume seems stupid and designed to rile people up and I can see how it would piss people off, including me. But did he physically assault anyone? Did he order drinks and not pay? Did he puke on the floor? Those are all grounds for getting kicked out of the bar.

Wearing a costume that people don't like, though?

ALL so-called "reality shows" are like that. The dialogue might not be pre-scripted but the scenes and set-ups are all pre-planned.

We should do our entire presidential election process - primaries to general election - in three months. The current never-ending circus (when did it all start? 2014?) is a national disgrace and international embarrassment.

Re: “Gentrification hits home (and businesses) in Charleston

Kudos to this writer for having the guts to tell it like it was and is! As Dan Blake posted, Charleston is driven by developers. The local govt. (Riley et al. until now) has been indifferent to the needs of its non-wealthy (specifically non-white) citizens, while the developers rake in the money. I am curious to see what Tecklenburg's responses will be to this situation.
This trend has overtaken the islands, as well. On J.I., the developers of megalithic complexes not only are driven by money, but they don't live in our community and deal with the traffic snarls and rising prices that ensue. Maybank Hwy. ring a bell??? But the overriding point is that Charleston and its outer suburbs are becoming the bastions of mostly the people who have the money to afford what is built. The people are lured by advertising that promises that they will be "minutes by Downtown" and the beaches. The voices of current residents, many of whom have lived here all of their lives, are ignored. So-called Planning committees pretend to hold meetings for people to be heard, but it is all a ploy. We are not communities whose needs and quality of living matters. Just the green stuff, and I don't mean green spaces!
