du straight cornball for reals
"Until Cunard makes Charleston a port of call, I couldn't give a shit."
Of course, Cunard is owned by Carnival Corp., so any finding in this case would apply to them as well, though I doubt any Cunard ship will be calling in Charleston anytime soon.
I am local and brought a bunch of friends from Asheville. And yes, the Dorado app was to die for. And I thought the McClellenville Little neck clams Linguini was pretty darn good although a bit salty. 3 of the guests got the fish and chips and were in heaven! Could not have been much happier with the food but the server was my guess a regular there for years and she was just not very customer service oriented. Most of us won't go back due to how she really almost worked hard to not help us out on anything. No bread to dip in the linguini, no toast points, or anything. Not much in the way of vegetarian(not that I cared, but one of my guests...). And it finally got just downright funny how she would deny us simple requests. She got the wine deal wrong and disappointed several at the table and would not make it right. I will go to the bar to eat when I go next time but doubt my out of towners will ask to go back and doubt I will bring a large group again.
My son who is a member of a DC think tank sent me this link to an article which also makes similar points... http://davidsimon.com/we-are-shocked-shock…
Is the whole flounder gone?!
Its pretty easy. Cops waste too much time on DUIS, minor possession, BS charges. The real criminals are too tough to deal with. They have to be "looked after". Lazy government workers who just want to get a paycheck for being a worthless under achiever could care less.
Its about our criminal government and their focus on letting 30 million illegals roam free and be rewarded for being criminals or putting white and black youths is jail for pot.
Surely its go to be the pot right? Right?
Semantics, my friend. Again I agree with you there is more awareness now, but that awareness is also creating a heightened sense of urgency and tension which causes people to think it is a new and/or growing problem. So I think for all intents and purposes it might as well be considered as such.
Kids I have got to be honest. FXXX all you media agents for taking the piss out of vicemag. They are free to explore themes as they wish as you are too and that is the beauty of free press. So if they want to explore death and you over at Vogue want to explore the dialectics of seemingly unhealthy anorexic women in high heels so be it, each to his own. Let the reader, the consumer make up their mind as to what works for them, after all a media outlet at the end of the day should only be accountable to its readers and not to the vexed insecurities of media agents shrilling existential angst and what they deem fashionably appropriate, the double standard is beyond laughable…

The freshly baked pretzel bread sounds nice to me.
Until Cunard makes Charleston a port of call, I couldn't give a shit.
"I would personally love to organize a public forum to flush these folks out in an effort to get YOU to actually defend your opinions IN PERSON."
That always sounds like a threat, doesn't it?
Still, go ahead. I'm game.
So the government can do a job better than a private sector contractor?
I was raised by Depression-era parents who wanted me to have what was impossible for them to have growing up as did most of my generation. What they did was from a sense that "I want my kids to have what I couldn't" Unfortunately, we misunderstood and corrupted that into "my kids should have everything they want." With the same lack of understanding, most today believe "we deserve everything."
The irony actually is that by acting in a noble way, my parents inadvertently set in motion a process that was destined to bring society back to the conditions that caused their actions to begin with.
Perhaps my sarcasm meter is not as dysfunctional as your attempts to convey sarcasm.
And finally, as I said, first time I've agreed with Tara. I have previously commented that I consider her to be second-rate hack trying to jump on the Limbaugh-Beck bandwagon.
I don't think the problem is growing, just it's awareness. You could find similarities with programs from the Civil War, WWI, WWII, and Cold War eras without any problem.
I have reported a potentially massive pollution problem to Water Keeper in two individual forums: E-mail and in-person. I received no response to the email and expressed concern to these guys in person to which I was told to e-mail them. I did so again and was instructed to video area when flooded. Very lame. The area in question is alleged pollutants from a salvage yard and massive street runoff in an industrial area running directly into Shipyard Creek. The salvor's former location is now a Superfund site. You can just about see the poison rolling into the Cooper. But no one have ever contacted me to volunteer and come take a look at the situation for themselves. I will say they had no problem asking for money though...
I absolutely agree. The question is, what can be done about it? I don't think anything, and I'm really not interested in trying anymore. Not to go all tea party here, but unless there is some sort of revolutionary change in our system of governing, this will not go away. And I wouldn't even call it status quo, because the problem is growing.
Or is it perhaps that the national security "industry" has such a choke-hold on government that government is nearly helpless to control it? I find it hard to believe that many of the idealists elected to office are comfortable living with the status quo without being pressured into playing along. I think it's kind of like opening a business in a Mafia-controlled neighborhood in South Philly: "you do your business any way you want and you're fine as long as you don't notice ours"
Clearly in your old age your sarcasm meter is a bit rusty. I personally would not be opposed to funding this. In fact, my tax burden should probably be a lot higher than it is - and I say this as a middle-class person who has never made more than $45K a year at a job. But a lot of people, such as Tara, want to have their cake and eat it too. They want all of the problems of American society solved, but do not want a proper tax investment from the population to do so. In fact I would not be surprised if she pooped out a column next week talking about how her taxes are too high.
"As Boomers, we tried to give our kids everything they wanted and now we have an entire generation of spoiled selfish brats like you."
A Boomer calling someone selfish. Apparently you need your irony meter recalibrated as well.
