Re: “South Carolina and the compulsion to celebrate Confederate Memorial Day

So should we stop recognizing Memorial Day as well since America introduced nuclear warfare in WWII and because we got involved in a highly political war with Vietnam and because civilians have died in the middle east? Bad things have happened in every war America has been a part of and we haven't always fought in wars for the right reasons.

Re: “South Carolina and the compulsion to celebrate Confederate Memorial Day

You just don't get it.

The Civil War was not about slavery, it was about states' rights. Specifically, allowing states the right to continue slavery.

And the confederate flag is about heritage, not hate. Specifically, the heritage that teaches people to hate anyone who didn't support slavery and a treasonous war against the United Sates.

Re: “South Carolina and the compulsion to celebrate Confederate Memorial Day

While I definitely agree this should not be a state observed paid holiday, I do think the writer has one thing twisted. Confederate Memorial Day is a day of memorial not celebration.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham skeptical of Obamacare repeal; Pols settle on 12-cent gas tax bump; Tebow boosting Fireflies

Since when did students get to choose who speaks at their graduation? I wish I knew who was going to speak at my college graduation before the fact, because I wouldn't have nominated them! Of course, now that I think back to my graduation, I couldn't tell you who spoke at it besides the President of the university. Does anyone remember who spoke at their college/high school graduations? Better yet, does anyone remember what they spoke about? I sure don't, mainly because it wasn't going to change the outcome of my life one bit.

Re: “The Agenda: McMaster again vows to veto gas tax; Graham's subcommittee hears from Obama admin. officials

Why Gov. McMaster thinks it is a good idea to veto a gas tax bill is beyond me. I guess he hasn't been out on these roads lately.

Re: “Cactus Car Wash

This was the second time in 2 months I had my car washed there. I will never go again. They never washed the outside windows and missed surface dirt around the license plate area both times. There is no excuse for this when you pay $25.00 for a supreme wash and you get your car returned to you as I have stated.

SC State is not predominantly "black" because they choose to mingle with others like them. Orangeburg and it's surrounding areas are predominantly "black" (77.1% of population so it correlates) and SC State also provides a lower cost education which appeals to the necessarily thrifty of the area, which is the same reason SC State is not all "black". And anyone who belongs to any club or institution whose charter limits membership based on skin color is complicit in racism and "unworthy" of respect by anyone with an ounce of character.

I believe if the majority of the graduates dont want him speaking...they just dont want him speaking..its their graduation.

Habitual humorless snarkiness doesn't qualify as comments.

Re: “REVIEW: Music Farm Charleston hosted Spoon's first sold-out show on 'Hot Thoughts' tour

Well! Thought that was a pretty innocuous request, but apparently someone disapproves. Let me try again: great review Mr. Crolley, was at the show myself and had a blast. Typically I write down setlists to share with a friend of mine, but in this case I was too caught up in the show to take note, and while I remember most of it more or less, my memory isn't what it used to be. As I'm unable to find it online, I thought I'd ask if you could post it. Thanks either way!
