How fun, the Beach Company gets to rape the Lowcountry with the approval of the politicians in search of a dolla.

Re: “The Agenda: Townville, SC school shooting linked to local killing; Congress approves harbor deepening

That Firefighter Jamie Brock is a true hero and all of us could take a lesson from his bravery. Somebody starts shooting somebody tackle them ,hit them, run them over,shoot ,stab,seriously injure with a stick!!!
Anything, just stop running away from them. That feeds the psychos power . His actions saved a lot of young lives, the more this happens the more we need heroes to stop it. Brave men and women who act fast and at great risk. The more of these out there the less psychos will think they can get away with it.
This is not the land of the flee its the home of the brave.
I'm not saying don't be smart and situationally aware just dont be a chicken shit either.
He should get a freaking statue in his honor.
God Bless America and God bless this guy and everyone who acted so bravely to protect these children.
Please pray for the injured.

Re: “Blood on the River returns for the third Lowcountry Boucherie

Yeah im thinking im not going, unless later when the moon arises they are gonna pour the blood over themselves and dance naked in the moonlight.
I mean this is some kind of diluted ritual sacrifice right? So when the civilized camera toters go is there a blood orgy and some incantations.Maybe some pagan ritual sacrifices.?
I mean short of that its just a bunch of odd carnivores having a bar b cue the hard way. The former sounds like a life experience.

Re: “Chef Michael Toscano serves near-perfect food at Le Farfalle

The food was exquisite and exquisitely enjoyed until the dining room filled up. Then the noise level significantly diminished our pleasure and shouting over the entrees left little patience for savoring the flavors. I will return when I am certain the weather is right for dining outdoors and I have a guaranteed table there.

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

I'm all for ensuring that the carriage tour companies are held to high standards of humane and proper care of their animals. It isn't 1890 any more; horses don't need to be worked into the ground, after all. But it is a practice that can be done properly and likely is for the most part in our city On the other hand, given that Mr. Cohen makes his actual (and prodigious by his own account) living selling the delectably seared flesh of former livestock, I wonder how committed he is to animal welfare if it came down to eliminating his own industry's lifeblood.

If traffic downtown is the primary concern, then there are major systematic changes that could be implemented to reduce the number of cars entering the peninsula daily.

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

I agree with you in some respects, however the person who pointed out that the horses would be killed if the carriage tours ended is correct. Rather than ending the practice all together, I wish the carriage tour owners would take the horses off the streets from 12-5 in the summer months or whenever it's 90 degrees or more. At that temperature, the pavement is probably at least 110, too hot for the horses.
Additionally, I would love to see fewer cars, perhaps making King Street pedestrian-only? Susan Sellers

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

Lets make a deal. The horses can stay IF y'all can get rid of the damn buckeyes, especially the jumbo sized new balance wearing ones. I'll even quit yelling at all y'all when the damn things let loose with a 20 gallon wizz in front of my house if you do that.

Re: “New interactive map shows effects of sea level rise on Charleston

DUDE! If the sea rises 4.5 feet, I'll be creek front with a deep water dock!! I'm selling my Toyota and buying an SUV. This weekend, I'm going to bust open cans of freon!! This can't happen fast enough. Unfortunately, the creek hasn't risen a bit in the ten years that I've lived in my house, so I doesn't look like it's going to happen :(

Re: “Watch Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton square off in the first 2016 presidential debate

He manufactures nothing in the US but screams we should bring manufacturing back to the US. Both sides of his mouth run-on independently while he violates embargos to make himself more of a one-percenter:


REPORT: Trump Violated US Trade Embargo On Cuba
September 29, 2016 2016 Election, Business, Scandal

Newsweek reports: http://www.newsweek.com/2016/10/14/donald-…

A company controlled by Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, secretly conducted business in Communist Cuba during Fidel Castro’s presidency despite strict American trade bans that made such undertakings illegal, according to interviews with former Trump executives, internal company records and court filings.

Documents show that the Trump company spent a minimum of $68,000 for its 1998 foray into Cuba at a time when the corporate expenditure of even a penny in the Caribbean country was prohibited without U.S. government approval. But the company did not spend the money directly. Instead, with Trump’s knowledge, executives funneled the cash for the Cuba trip through an American consulting firm called Seven Arrows Investment and Development Corp. Once the business consultants traveled to the island and incurred the expenses for the venture, Seven Arrows instructed senior officers with Trump’s company—then called Trump Hotels & Casino Resorts—how to make it appear legal by linking it after the fact to a charitable effort.

The payment by Trump Hotels came just before the New York business mogul launched his first bid for the White House, seeking the nomination of the Reform Party. On his first day of the campaign, he traveled to Miami, where he spoke to a group of Cuban-Americans, a critical voting bloc in the swing state. Trump vowed to maintain the embargo and never spend his or his companies’ money in Cuba until Fidel Castro was removed from power. He did not disclose that, seven months earlier, Trump Hotels already had reimbursed its consultants for the money they spent on their secret business trip to Havana.

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

Randall Floyd, if Ron Liberte really loved Obama and Hillary, he wouldn't be fat shaming women like Trump does. What is it with anti carriage people and fat shaming? Are skinny people not allowed to be tourists?

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

Ron Liberte — BLESS YOUR HEART. My family hails from Ohio. When I next visit Charleston, be careful that I don't put my three inch high heel in your backside. (After I take a carriage ride and eat a pound of shrimp grits washed down with RC Cola, of course.)

Re: “It's time to give up the carriage tour gimmick

Mr. Liberte's HATRED is not reasonable grounds for a ban. It seems he would also like to ban all tourists, in spite of the revenue they bring to Charleston, especially larger citizens wearing Summer attire who come from Ohio. I would suggest banning the HATE not the horses.
