Banjo players aren't allowed to use Botox™.
@IPY - You know mat and the other libtards are always in favor of any and all subsidies that redistribute wealth by taking it from the haves who through hard work earned it, then giving it to the lazy folks they want to enslave and whose votes they wish to buy. All in the name of pandering and labeling them "victims".
Yet god forbid some greedy corporation or family business get a subsidy that is repaid to the community several times over as an economic stimulus.
They fail to recognize that the subsidies given to Boeing & BMW are repaid many fold via income, property, and sales taxes. Not to mention creating jobs and boosting the image of state & community. Additionally, those subsidies get repaid by all the ancillary and support jobs created by all the contract workers and supply companies moving to be near BMW & Boeing and the jobs they create, which are not based on subsidies and often out number the jobs created by Boeing or BMW.
It's called Botox

Adrian H. McDonald,
I have a "big picture" question for you:
How much would it cost the state of South Carolina to film (in HD) some of Charleston's most picturesque locations and then have those "video postcards" aired during prime time viewing hours on network television? How much would it cost the state to show a nationwide television audience of potentially ten million viewers 8 to 10 minutes worth of Charleston scenery on a weekly basis?
I'm guessing more than whatever the state will pay out in subsidies.
Yes, the state is paying taxpayers money (via subsidy) directly to the production, but we taxpayers are getting something very valuable in return - the sort of long term exposure that we could never achieve via traditional tourism marketing strategies.
Location themed television shows generally have a positive impact with regard to tourism revenues for the locations depicted. Hawaii and Miami both saw significant boosts in tourism revenues due to the increased exposure provided by the episodic television shows Hawaii Five-O and Miami Vice.
Reckless has the potential to provide a big boost to tourism in Charleston, if you look at the big picture. I'm glad someone in Columbia figured that out.

Tony, there are many white supremacists who consider the Brahmin, or highest, caste members in India to be white. However else could the Indian people have had such a flourishing culture after all. They believe the same for the Egyptians, Persians and Chinese. Also, many "pure" Spaniards living in or formerly from Central and South America and the Carribbean do not identify themselves the same way as most of their neighbors. Look at the "haves" in those countries and they are overwhelmingly European and they look upon the indigenous and mestizo people as lesser and have spent centuries oppressing them. It is the same attitude and they would fit right in to most white supremacist organizations, at least the ones who recognize Mediterranean Europeans as white, which some do not. I know a few Cuban people of purely Spanish descent who have nothing but disdain for "Latino" people and culture and do not consider themselves to be in same category.
Is he related to famous Jazz great Kenny G?
I'm confused, Ned Hill. Could you please elucidate your positions for me?
Honestly, I think that Haley had no idea about Roan Garcia-Quintana's background. He was a regular guest on The Morning Buzz and I'm sure that Richard Todd had no idea Roan was a member of the CofCC. I didn't, and I try to keep up with these things.
Chris, if Nikki will publicly "get in bed" with a guy like this, doesn't it make Will Folks more credible?
When it comes down to it, aren't all South Carolina Republicans essentially members of a "White Power" organization?
Ok, Chris. So a hispanic male, who is working for an Indian female, is a white supremacist. Also, the Southern Poverty Law Center, who puts Shawn Hannity and Laura Ingraham on an enemies list is being held up as a trustworthy source? LOL. This is pathetic.
PS. SC voted in Mark Sanford. Perhaps thats because you ran a congenital idiot comedienne wanna be poseur.
Guys, Im no fan of Mark Sanford either. Hes a sleaze bag. However when you run two complete idiots, you have to settle for one of them and shut up.
To the gentleman who wants to claim Tara was run out of town for a racist comment, I say this.
As a regular listener and follower of Tara, she did no such thing. A little fellow (who runs a fairly inconsequential news publication) by the name of John Hood got his boxers in a bunch when she poked fun at our communist president and the proclivities of his supporters. John is a bit of a weakling weasel and threw Tara under the bus. His "high brown back water" publication couldnt take the heat. You know, like most spineless fake republican conservatives. (psssst thats not me in case you are wondering, hehehe).
WBT, a substandard, now liberal leaning hack radio station also threw her under the bus along with some other long time hosts. They did this to suck up to Obama, Mayor Foxx and the rest of the Demo-kommie liberals that run that town. Thats one reason the station is no longer relevant. However, Tara is still just the same Godsend she always has been.
So sir, in your case, its better to be someone and get some flak along the way as opposed to being a bitter hack putting folks down in the comment section of a news publication.
You should put down that copy of BLue Boy and read something educational.
Aren't you cute, "And if elected..."?
The "N word" is just six alphabetic letters that combine to form a sound when audibly articulated. How is sound racist? How are letters racist? Are you saying that the alphabet is racist?
Did you pull a Ted Nugent?
I've managed to construct the first 3-D "dirty" bomb today. You'll hear about it on Fox™ News tonight.
Be afraid, everyone. Live in fear of my creation.
Great overview and wonderful writing. Makes me excited for this year's festival!
