When hippies get old, they become Republicans. This is true.

Re: “A really, really angry letter from a uterus to the U.S. Supreme Court

Again, SCOTUS is charged with interpreting the Constitutionality of any law in question. While it is pure Polyanna (look it up) to think the Justices are totally unbiased in their interpretations, the system is stacked to get the most objective rulings possible. While the uneducated may believe a ruling is targeted specifically at them or a subset they belong to, the opinions are made as to how the law adheres to the tenets of the Constitution itself. Unfortunately, America has become a population of whining ego-centrics and professional martyrs who refuse to recognize this.

Re: “George Orwell, Nikki Haley, and the penny sales tax scam

A completely wrong interpretation. One of local government's primary obligation is maintenance of infra-structure. Obviously the money must come from taxes, but Knee-Jerk Conservatives scream all taxes are bad, regardless of their purpose. "Penny tax" sounds much less intrusive than just "tax increase" and is one of the few ways to get approval to fund projects that must be done.
The irony of "No Tax" Conservatives is they refuse to fund anything yet at election time they hammer incumbents for doing nothing.

Re: “The Agenda: CofC coach on thin ice; T-Rav announces campaign; NYT writer floats Riley as 'most loved'

I like old Joe most of the time, hes kinda funny and a real polished pro politician hand shaking baby kisser, but this midnight closing for some, but not all, or maybe all down the road, or maybe just selective bars but not hotels, or maybe just certain areas, or no newbies, is one of the most idiotic plans in Charleston's History of idiotic planning.

Pretty obvious the 'Pelagornis sandersi' did not become extinct due to over-hunting. So why did they disappear? Climate change?

Re: “There is still hope for new CofC leader Glenn McConnell

When the College of Charleston new President burns his Confederate uniform and begins to tell the truth about sandlappers who raped black women to sell their babies and begins to show leadership for civil rights instead of his racist Strom Thurmond traditions, then I'd let my daughter transfer from a real university to the CofC @AtheistVet Larry Carter Center exiled in Auburn, NY @Greens926_1750

Re: “Filmmakers indicted in Sarah Jones train fatality

Most parents are going to file a lawsuit if negligence led to their daughters death. Everyone knows train tracks are dangerous, and every film crew knows they need permission for every location. They don't sneak around like that and never should have had an assistant out on the bridge like that.

So Laurin, if a CEO spoke in favor of gay marriage, and the employees/shareholders/BoD of his employer didn't agree and fired him as a result - that would be fine and just the free market at work, right? No harm, no foul?

Re: “Co-founder of Kinetic HiFi and TheFix.fm Brad Cooper dies in car wreck

. . . and who trolls someone's obituary? Have you no sense of decency? How dare you? Did you stop to think once, you soulless inconsiderate mouthpiece, that this young man's parents, or the hundreds of people who mourned Brad at his memorial today might be forced to read your cynical shitstain of a comment every time they look at what is otherwise a nice obituary for their loved one? If you cannot substantiate your statement, it should be removed, along with this response.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

I have read thru many of the comments and find them rather suspicious. The mean spirited comments smack of being posted by disgruntled former employees or jealous competitors since the focus of the complaints are directed at the owners/hosts, not the food.I am a local and have eaten at Halls many times, for both business and family events. I do agree that the prices are high, but I have never walked away disappointed. The food and service have always been excellent. Depending on where you are seated, it can be a little noisy. I prefer the upstairs dining areas since they are more amenable to conversation.

I strongly disagree with the comments that state that locals stay away from Hall's. I live here and have never heard a single negative comment about the owners or the food. Since when is it "creepy" for a business owner to remember your name or to inquire if you were satisfied with your purchase? Charleston is a small town and part of its charm is that local businesses DO remember who you are. I have out-of-town friends who look forward to eating at Hall's and the hosts even remember their names. The food is amazing--try any of the steaks, but the tuna and salmon are wonderful, as well as the corn and brussels sprouts.
