Re: “Stegelin: Boeing S.C. vs. The Machinists union, round 1

If the IAM and NLRB had their way you wouldn't have Boeing cartoons to draw, they wouldn't be in SC in the first place! Unions are prehistoric at least draw a brontosaurus or something to represent them.

Re: “The media, elected officials unite with big business to oppose unions

Great op-ed. The only way to balance economic and political power is for workers to have the full, democratic right to representation and collective bargaining. The employer and political leaders should not be able to threaten or intimidate workers denying this right of freedom of association.

Re: “The media, elected officials unite with big business to oppose unions

I feel like I heard Governor Haley speak in explicitly anti-union ads for Boeing. Like you said, that's been confirmed as well within her rights, I've just never heard an elected official be so extremely clear in such an anti-union advertisement.

Nothing should surprise me, though, because everything is at least a little bit different here.

Re: “The media, elected officials unite with big business to oppose unions

The other group that united was the people who would have formed the prospective union. If someone wants to unionize, good for them, have at it. But, it is bad to force someone to join a union if they do not want to.

Re: “Mt. Pleasant's Babs Tarr joins the Bat Family and helps give Batgirl a much-needed Veronica Mars makeover

I was fortunate to see a screening of "She Makes Comics" by Park Circle Film Society and she exemplifies what they were talking about in the documentary. More and more women are coming back into comics and that is a great thing. The differing perspectives are pushing comics away from the fanboy anatomically impossible characters to real characters and much richer story lines. It is great to see this happening in the medium and when I put on my comic book shows I have noticed a big and refreshing change in the attendees from a dozen years ago when it was just a boys club.

Re: “The Walter Scott murder only increases the mistrust between the black community and police

"Will the story ever be silenced?"

...said the guy posting on an 11 day old column.

"Every incident of the so-called black bias with cops resulted from a black man disobeying the orders of the cop"

Tell that to the guy in Columbia that was shot 4 times for trying to retrieve the drivers license the cop asked to see.

Re: “Nerd Culture is Rape Culture: Elliot Rodger and the misogynistic world of the geek

and well, considering star wars cannon, hutts reproduce asexually and it is unknown if they even have genitalia that could even be used to rape humans with. The idea that they were raped is ludicrous. Since he was a gangster and obviously, concerned with wealth, slave girls were more prized for their monetary worth.....beauty being a prime quality and therefore the more beautiful the higher their value.

Re: “How did S.C.'s 'guns in bars' bill pass so fast?

Over a year later and...

Number of issues I'm aware of in SC related to lawful concealed carry in a business that serves alcohol: zero

It's the same as concealed carry licensing all over the nation which started in the late 90's (there are now over 11,000,000 Americans with concealed firearms permits) - "there will be gunfights over parking spaces, blood in the streets!" turned into a whole lot of nothing. Violent crime is now at 30 year lows.

The usual hysterics from the usual crowd, nothing more.

Re: “The Agenda: Volvo narrows its search; Cycles of missed child support; Furyk clinches Heritage

Hey Ron great comparison..... although I guess I missed your point, since a company like Volvo takes those tax breaks(welfare in your opinion) and in return generates jobs and improves the economy of the area. Boeing is a great example. Would you mind updating your post and explaining what return taxpayers are getting from those that abuse the welfare programs that you seem to be in favor of?

Re: “Mi Xao

My girlfriend and I recently returned to the USA after living in Hanoi. I formed an addiction to Vietnamese food while living overseas and have been consistently disappointed by the lack of authenticity of Vietnamese restaurants in the southeast. That is, until my first visit to Mi Xao. The pho bo is absolutely perfect, it truly makes me feel like I'm back in Vietnam. The owner, Toan, is a gentleman and is always incredibly friendly to us every time we come by. Mi Xao has become my favorite restaurant over the last few months and has been a huge help for me personally transitioning back to life in the USA! If you are thinking about stopping by, I can not recommend Mi Xao more!

Re: “Should officers be able to listen to music while on duty?

So if a black cop is listening to some rap music, which, in many cases calls for violence and hate, then if he kills someone the cop can blame it on the music? What a completely ridiculous article, and one that probably will create a whole lot of useless opinions and statements. Like this one.

Re: “The Walter Scott murder only increases the mistrust between the black community and police

Will the story ever be silenced? Why do we have to keep going back, and back, and back and regurgitating the same old lines? This "teacher" will certainly continue the rumor that black kids don't have a chance with the cops. How about teaching them to obey the orders of a cop? Every incident of the so-called black bias with cops resulted from a black man disobeying the orders of the cop. Do what they say, when they say it, and let the system decide whether or not the stop was necessary. Funny you don't hear about the black on white incidents. I guess white lives don't matter.

Re: “Walter Scott attended program for dads who are behind on child support payment

How is it that everyone can judge the situation so quickly or honestly, so black or white?
The man did not deserve to die, no U.S. court would hand down that sentence.
The real concern is the children - all of the time, effort and money behind this could be spend on helping the mother get her children what they need. I haven't seen one story, much less a sentence in a story about it....

Re: “Nerd Culture is Rape Culture: Elliot Rodger and the misogynistic world of the geek

It's bad enough that nerds are characterized as losers due to their nonconformity and demonized by society. I can't imagine any socioeconomic standard that lists them as anything but a marginalized group in society. They're the frequent victim of badmouthing, outright violence and other forms of bullying. In some areas of the country, the bullying of nerds almost competes with racial persecution. Seen it myself as an African American kid who struggled against racism. White kids had their gangs, black kids had their gangs to fight back. The nerds had nothing, not even the teachers had their back. Only gays and transgendered people face more hate than nerds did/do.

It's bad enough that rapists and killers like Charles Manson and Richie Ramirez gets more positive attention from women in a year than all the nerds around the world ever will, combined, in their lifetimes. And that's pretty much an indisputable statistical fact, whether you feel me saying it is offensive or not. And now you want to push their unpopularity up a notch and associate Elliot Rodgers with nerd culture? Elliot Rodgers, the same guy who worked out and posted on bodybuilding forums (definitely NOT your typical nerd activity), the same guy whose first murder victims were nerds? You've basically demeaned nerd culture from the already unpopular world that it is, to the level of domestic terrorism. For no good reason, based on a whole lot of erroneous reasoning and unjustified, raw prejudice.

Great move, Chris Haire. Thanks to you this is going to filter down to the immature juvenile world where nerds are born and made - in school. Given human nature and its predisposition toward hate and prejudice, it's an absolute certainty that many parents have read your article - and Arthur Chu's, which you seemed to have gotten this idea from. Your article, and Chu's, will reinforce their already existing prejudices, then they will communicate it to their immature kids, and voila! Now in their minds they will for once formulate an actual RIGHTEOUS purpose for their physical assaults and verbal abuse of nerds.

But what am I saying, you and Arthur Chu probably intended to cause this escalation of abuse. After all it increases your standing with women as 'superior' nerds.
