Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

Seriously, what's the difference between the re-zoning thing and this moratorium??? Why was the F&B crowd against the initial attempt but is ok with this? It's just re-wording the initial plan-except now F&B is ok with it??? WTF

This is not public planning. This is disaster relief.

Re: “Tom Ervin does what Sheheen, Haley won't — welcomes gay marriage ruling

I am liking Tom for his common sense approach. He is a born again Christian who does not let his personal religious beliefs overshadow the constitutional rights of others. At last, a SC politician living in the 20th century. I will also be voting for him because he will finally rid us of the moronic common core standards.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

First for the writer to start with being a DEM. The city of Charleston Government like the Mayor and Council are DEM'S! REPUBLICANS would not vote to have a limit on hours to do business and your comment about your politics in the beginning of this article was not needed except to say conservatives are doing this when that is not the case.

What an odd writing style, Kind'a like a bunch of one liners No story line, segway, or cohesion. "And now....the REST of the story" ,Paul Harvey is saying in his grave !

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

Chris,

I'm not defending the Sheheen campaign's (non)statement, but it's worth noting that the swing voters who will decide the outcome of the 2014 gubernatorial race in South Carolina are not young voters. The swing voters are the only ones the campaign is concerned with.

The Sheheen campaign's strategy -- whether it's a good one or a bad one -- is to go after the handful of reliable voters in this election who are persuadable. Those voters are moderate, educated, mostly white, middle-aged voters who sometimes (or even oftentimes) vote Republican.

Yes, the Sheheen campaign risks demoralizing its liberal base by refusing to engage on issues that are important to the base, but their calculus is consistent with their strategy. Don't engage for fear of alienating moderates + assume that the base will hold their nose and vote for you anyway. (Because they most likely will. They are, after all, the most engaged and active voters.)

Profiles in courage? Nah. But is it idiotic? I don't think so.

There's been very little polling specific to South Carolina on marriage equality, but the last poll I saw was a PPP poll from December 2012. At that time, only 25% of South Carolina voters thought marriage equality should be legal. I'm sure there's been an upward tick since then, but I doubt the needle has moved too much.

A campaign with fairly limited resources has to map its path to victory with the people that voting records show are already going to vote in the election. A responsible campaign would never pin its path to victory on voters it isn't sure is going to show up, and that includes young voters. Getting would-be-first-time voters to the polls to vote is extremely costly, and aside from a once in a generation campaign like Obama's with limitless resources, it's very hard to do.

Re: “Vincent Sheheen campaign manager: Candidate non-committal about gay marriage ruling

A politician in SC being non-committal? Really? Back pedaling on issues? No comment? Monitoring the situation? How very unusual. Wishy washy balancing on the fence acts are the norm these days. We either have Warning Warning Gay Agenda approaching politicians or no commitment. For Christ sake, why can't we have one semi normal politician with a half a brain in the entire State of SC. At least the Warning Warning ones have let us know where they actually stand and we can make jokes about them (like the rest of the Country does except for Mississippi) when we travel out of the fine state of SC. I can not even enjoy a good laugh at the expense of a fence sitter.

why are my posts being deleted? Is this paper profiling me because I don't agree with them on some issues? Are you being hypocrites once again?

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

So, this means the tech firms are going to move onto Upper King now?

Would love to find out how real all that was.


More "third place" options on upper King would be nice. Places aside
from restaurants or bars. Jenis and Callies are new and welcome
alternatives.

Having more late night non alcoholic options like a coffeehouse/coworking
space would be ideal.


The rental rates seem to be only manageable to bars and party places though.

Re: “City to propose 3-year ban on bars

Jo, I'm pretty sure Chris made that point completely clear.

Ima, at least people are considering options vs being a dick.

Putting a stop to development is insane. There has been no increase in crime in the overpay, errrr overlay district, so I still don't see WHY.

This is the perfect conservative (not Republican) response and reaction to this ruling. A leader like this would get the young voters that you alluded to in the Sheheen article.
