I have nothing but admiration for the man who was brave enough to take down that damn flag that represents nothing but racism and oppression. It's A disgrace that he was arrested. Shame on the Charleston police department.
Technically not only did he commit a crime, but he also promotes a view of an honored Southern symbol that gives power to white supremacists - the very people he claims to be fighting against.
The guy carrying that flag should have been charged with a hate crime. Anyone not ashamed of carrying that flag in this day and age is a racist dick!
Best bar in town! Also, an award winning, incredible restaurant downstairs! Great service, great active owner, great staff & management, and an extremely talented Chef who pours his heart into his food! If you haven't been, I suggest you go! Now! :)
When I read that Anton Yelchin had signed on for the title role, I bought the book with the intent of finishing it before the show aired. On June 19th, 2016, I threw the book in the trash.
While I wish the cast and crew well in this project, I won't be watching it.
Take a picture of the money...Won't see it again..
Not the cleanest joint in town!..wow...
Why would they want to go through all the trouble just to lose their investment?
Senator Tim Scott and Representative Mark Sanford,
I have called and left messages and I wanted to follow up with this communication.
I have been watching and absorbing the events as they have unfolded over the course of the last month or so and have been very concerned about the direction our nation has been taking and the international community's view as a "not-so-great nation". It's was bad enough for him to question judges decisions, even based on their ethnicity, but he clearly has something to hide because, then the unthinkable happens! President Trump unilaterally declares the media the "enemy" of the people and takes the final step of shutting out the media that refuses to allow Trump to dictate his communication without any vetting of what he says. We are in a dangerous time now and I fear, not only for the nation, but for personal safety. We can no longer be informed about what is really taking place in Washington except through our representation. We are beginning to get into a desperate situation and the subversion of the US Constitution cannot be allowed to continue.
Please take action at once to reel in this Oligarch! Now, before it is too late!
Thank you Mr. Akhyari for your wonderful article. I will pray for hearts to be warmed and minds enlightened with the truth and the courage it takes to stand up for one another.
Fair and balanced article for the most part. Respect for the second amendment has to be the foundation for any discussion regarding keeping guns out of the wrong hands. There can be uncompromising support for a constitutional right with room for situational adjustments. Justice Scalia expressed that below in his Supreme Court decision that supported the 2nd amendment but allowed room for such adjustments.
Scalia quote from DC vs Heller, majority opinion
Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited. From Blackstone through the 19th-century cases, commentators and courts routinely explained that the right was not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever in any manner whatsoever and for whatever purpose. See, e.g., Sheldon, in 5 Blume 346; Rawle 123; Pomeroy 152153; Abbott333. For example, the majority of the 19th-century courts to consider the question held that prohibitions on carrying concealed weapons were lawful under the Second Amendment or state analogues. See, e.g., State v. Chandler, 5 La. Ann., at 489490; Nunn v. State, 1 Ga., at 251; see generally 2 Kent *340, n. 2; The American Students Blackstone 84, n. 11 (G. Chase ed. 1884). Although we do not undertake an exhaustive historical analysis today of the full scope of theSecond Amendment , nothing in our opinion should be taken to cast doubt on longstanding prohibitions on the possession of firearms by felons and the mentally ill, or laws forbidding the carrying of firearms in sensitive places such as schools and government buildings, or laws imposing conditions and qualifications on the commercial sale of arms.26
I agree with Jshicke, this was unusually well balanced, something you don't seem to get from news media today. My opinion is that rights are not privileges, the only qualification needed for a federally enumerated right is citizenship in these United States of America just as the only qualification for a state enumerated right is citizenship in that state. Once you've said you must be this age or this sex or have this license or training it's no longer a right, it's a privilege. If the people of this nation want to remove the federally granted right to bear arms there is a process laid out in the constitution allowing them to do so, repeal the second amendment, which will allow the states to decide individually if they want to create a right or privilege to bear arms or outlaw them entirely. If we allow the second amendment to be turned into a privilege outside of that process then every other right we have is subject to the same denigration and we'll soon have no rights at all.
Best wings, best brisket, friendly staff, beware the "Liquid Marijuana!" Everything was going pretty good until I greedily drank 3 after being told only 2...
Alexander Hamilton was, ahem, "intimate friends" with Charlestonian John Laurens.
I saw the headline and thought, 'This outta be hilarious. A liberal rag talking about gun control. Always good for a laugh.' However, I at least feel they gave equal time to BOTH sides of the issue. I was pleasantly surprised. Gun owners were not slanted to be red neck idiots with a fourth grade education. Because of this fairness, I actually read the entire article. I disagreed with many aspects, but read them with a seriousness due to this issue.
Thank You for a nice surprise and, frankly, a fair article that allows ME to make the opinion instead of trying to force feed it to me.
Chef Kevin is going to kill it folks go see him and the crew often for your oyster and other seafood fix. He's the real deal and knows his stuff. Looking forward to the opening Chef!!
Can't wait to read your write ups!
Good lawyer. Took care of me.
Nice review, but author should be advised both males and females have X chromosomes.
Foghorn, this comes from sound bites they get from the biased media because they are too lazy to do research. Plus, if MSNBC says it, it has to be true
