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.

Re: “Kevin Bryant is South Carolina's fifth lieutenant governor in five years

I'm kind of a political news junkie but I have to admit: I had no idea that Yancey McGill was ever our LtGov. I guess I got caught up in all the flap over Glenn McConnell coming to CofC. So I learned something already today and it isn't even 10am.

Re: “Charlestonians participate in D.C. Women's March

Agree Kevin, most could not articulate why they were there, fighting for rights women already have...fueling the very divisiveness and lack of tolerance that they claim to be protesting against. The March had nothing to do with Woman's rights, black rights, gay rights, immigration, or any rights. Call it like it is...it was an anti-Trump rally...and certainly did not represent 'All Women.' There have been well-researched reports (NY Times) that it was funded and orchestrated by Soros and more than 50 partner organizations (like Planned Parenthood) so nothing 'grass roots' about it. I'm an educated woman, who voted for Trump and lived through and personally experienced times when things weren't as great for women as they are now (and no, I'm not a racist, bigot, or xenophobe). I don't dislike Obama--not a fan of some of his policies-- but really did not like Hillary as my view (based on facts and research) is that she is extremely corrupt, dishonest, and self-serving. I have been called all sorts of things and even classified as a sexist simply because I didn't vote for the candidate democrats wanted. Given the choices (which were not optimal for democrats or republicans), I voted for the candidate that aligns with my stance on policies and direction the govt needs to take. Although not the most polished person by far, I feel Trump honestly wants to improve our economy, national security, repeal healthcare policies which were doomed to fail by design, clean up govt overspending, and wasteful policies that have been layered on for years, and return the focus of the govt back to the people it serves instead of being self-serving and bloated. These changes are needed and long overdo. When did our country start resorting to name calling and mudslinging when they didn't win an election or agree on policies...Really?!? Time to raise our thinking up a few notches. Regina Hopkins (and as a faithful reader of this publication I am disappointed by City Paper's single lens view that I have seen so far in this paper).

Re: “Charlestonians participate in D.C. Women's March

Peaceful? For the most part. A place to bring your 13yo daughter? Not the DC march unless you want her to hear all the cursing and angry rhetoric spewed by the invited speakers. Oh, and let's not forget the women walking around in giant vagina costumes. Not exactly a "family" event. My eyes are still burning from the image.

Let's face it folks, this was your "sore loser march". I'm a conservative and we had our sore loser march too after Barack Hussein Obama was elected. Our big event was the Restoring Honor rally on Aug 28, 2010, and those of us who attended felt like we had a crowd of 400-500 thousand. Did our march amount to anything? Probably not. Will your march amount to anything? Doubtful. But yes, I bet it made you feel good to be surrounded by like minded individuals, so at least you have that memory. Congratulations and glad you enjoyed it.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham calls out Onion 'scoop'; Clyburn says Trump voter fraud talk is about voter restrictions

I can't shake my suspicion that our President Trump isn't setting up Ambassador Haley for failure. She was a standard-bearer for #nevertrump and landed one of the most devastating "bless your heart" drops in history upon him. Her resume would be suitable for a cabinet or under-secretary position like the IRS or Commerce, but this is her first-ever job outside the 803 (there wasn't even an 864 area code back when she was at Clemson). It hardly makes sense for one of the most powerful Ambassador seats on the planet, the UN Security Council, to go to someone with neither education nor experience relevant to international politics. She has great political ambitions, and this might actually backfire for her... then the President announces plans, that she must parrot, that the US wants to withdraw significantly from influence at the UN. Yikes.

Meanwhile, Governor McMaster jumped on the DJT Express long ago and now he's out of the pit of despair that is the LTGov office and into the big chair. Well la-dee-da for him!

"Nearly 900 people have signed an online petition to demand that Gov. Henry McMaster resign his membership at Forest Lake Club in Columbia, which apparently has no black members. Source: P&C, Change.org"

Forest Lake should make Tim Scott an honorary member. His experience in tokenism may be just the thing McMaster and the country club need to quell this PR disaster.

Re: “PULP Gallery says goodbye to Charleston this Saturday

Too bad, it was a nice addition to art and cinema in downtown Charleston, unfortunately most of the locals in the area only support the growing alcohol economy. This is why we can't have nice things.

Re: “Credit card skimmer found at James Island gas station

Not the first time this has happen at this station. Back when Hurricane Matthew swept through, these guys were one of the few on the island with gas. While I always use my gas credit card, this particular time I used a bank credit card. A week later charges started showing up in Florida. Always check, typically by pulling on the credit card reader to detect if it is a skimmer.

Preach it, lynnar! Fuck those elitist celebrities with their arrogance and hatefulness who are so detached from the every day struggles of the common person. That's why I voted for a multi-millionaire reality TV star.

Re: “More than 2,000 join women’s march in Charleston

I think it was more a "keep your hands off my twat, trump!" march. Both figuratively and physically. You have a right to be pro-life and I think everyone is pro-life but you don't have a right to impose your rights on everyone. Just be yourself to the best of your ability and keep you nose out of other's twats!

Re: “Stephen Colbert to host this year's Emmy Awards

All the more reason not to watch. You want to talk protesting? I am protesting every award show on TV, including the Tony's from NYC. I don't need to be lectured from these elitists, who make millions and live in their own bubbles and don't have a worry in the world on paying their bills, or paying for their healthcare. They live in mansions and are totally alienated from areas, they would never, ever walk through themselves. I do not need to hear their holier than thou attitudes on how they are better than us peons out there, and making fun of us, just because we happen to have a difference of opinion. They are sooo inclusive, arent' they? Ha. And as far as I can recall, the expression "It's going to be HUGE", was originally made by Bernie Sanders. Who, btw, sold out and bought a lake house on Lake Champlain ( on the Vt. side) for approx. $650,000. Now where on earth did he get that money??? The man was worth only $250,000 when he turned in his tax records. The man never had a real job in his life. He was practically homeless when he first moved to VT. He never made money Even as a senator, he was supposed to one of the honest ones. Interesting when he sold out to Hillary,he all of a suddenly bought himself a lake house. So Steverino can make fun of Trump and Melaina and his kids all he wants. I have a feeling his audience won't be that "huge". Or the most watched.
