Re: “Strom Thurmond and Ben Tillman's legacies surfaced as Elizabeth Warren read Coretta Scott King's words in the Senate

Foghorn, this comes from sound bites they get from the biased media because they are too lazy to do research. Plus, if MSNBC says it, it has to be true

Re: “Fighting for acceptance as an Iranian/Latino American

Thank you for the post. I too am a product of love between and Iranian and Latina. My folks met in the early 70's. she thought he was Mexican (boy was she wrong). They've been married for over 45 years. My first name is Steve and last name is rooted in Arabic. Growing up in TX, everyone assumed I was Mexican. Which was partially true. As a kid, I got called "Wet Back", "Beaner" and even got called "Camel Jockey". Ignorance abound. I had a very strong Latin influence as a kid (living in TX). Less so from the Persian side, other than the food. :) It wasn't until I went to a Catholic College and had an opportunity to go to attend Friday Prayers (which was enlightening to learn about) and I also took a class on the History of Modern Iran which was eye-opening. So, education is so important. But, perhaps more important I feel... Is the question you ask. "Where are you really from"? I recently had my DNA done and found that I was quite the mix. 30% European (Spanish/Italian/Greek/ Portuguese, but snippets of European Jew, and other Eastern European countries). I'm over 33% Caucus, 14% native american, less than 5% African. Those were the main genetic roots. I think the more that we truly learn about our roots, the easier it will be to share our similarities...

Yes Craig Deihl is a great chef, local star and all-around "nice guy", it's great that he is "chef at Cypress and Artisan Meat Share and a founding member of the Butcher's Guild," but if he's a superstar and can't pass regulations that other locals have been able to accomplish in the course of almost a year it seems that he has some deficiencies the others don't or he's a whining prima-dona, or the victim of well-meaning but clueless sycophants writing a supportive column.

Re: “Of course Donald Trump made a joke about women on stage today at Boeing

Much as I dislike Trumps personality - he seems to be the target of continual ad-hominem attacks that are blowing smoke over his political performance:

(1) Improving background checks for travelers from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia, Libya - has got to be a useful thing right? Apart from inconveniencing the good guys who might be travelling from those countries it will give the US time to put a decent system in place to seriously inconvenience the bad guys. The naivety of people who think that everyone from these countries must be *friendly* is amazing.

(2) ILLEGAL immigrants are people that are breaking the law. They are criminals by definition. IMHO *legal* immigrants are a good thing and boost the American economy. Trump completely supports legal migrants but is trying to prevent ILLEGALS -- the same focus as previous President. Personally, I think building a physical wall is a daft idea but putting the interests of Americans and American immigrants above those of the illegals is something else I'm amazed people are offended by.

(3) Air Force One - A million day? Wow. Various news sources are reporting that the Trump Administration has already negotiated a reduced price of over a $1Billion (which represent nearly 3 years of free flights on this plane) and there is talk of completely cancelling the second plane. Something that no other president as even considered to reduce costs. I also think that of Trump flew on his own plane -- that would be complained about as a conflict of interest. So taking every previous Presidents travel plan and reducing costs is a good thing.

Am I "appalled at the blatant hypocrisy"? No.

Do I wish then new American President was a "better orator, less orange with a better haircut and exercised less foot-in-mouth moments"? Yes. Dont we all? ;)

America has a new CEO in charge of this huge lumbering and openly corrupt political machine, so lets hope he delivers on a his election trail promises. This immigrant hopes Democracy prevails.

Re: “Newest DHEC regulations could mean the butcher block for some of the region's most acclaimed charcuterie

Too bad CP didn't come talk to us. We jumped through the hoops and got our HACCP plans together. It took us 8 months of hurry-up-and-wait back and forth with Columbia, laboratory product assessments to verify our methodology was sound, and HACCP training seminars for the management and staff. The end result is fantastic artisnal products that we guarantee won't kill you.
It's not just about filling in the paperwork, it's about advanced understanding of the microbiology and physical and chemical controls involved.
We're now working towards wholesale and hope to be able to produce custom products for chefs who can't put the time and treasure into developing their own plans.

Re: “Of course Donald Trump made a joke about women on stage today at Boeing

And Saturday at his "Happy Place" (campaign rally with all of his friends - is he still running?), he misunderstood (must have, at least) a Fox News article about immigrants in Sweden and proclaimed to the crowd that a serious incident occurred there and they were having all kinds of problems with the immigrants. I say misunderstood, because otherwise, he outright lied in order bolster his immigration order, which is not even needed given we've suffered no terrorist attacks from immigrants of any of the 7 countries ever.

In 2014, Trump tweeted that we cannot continue to let Obama use Airforce One, at a cost of a million a day, for "politics and play". However, with three trips to Mar-O-Lago and one to a campaign rally in four weeks, Trump may also qualify for "Politics and Play" at a cool mill' a day. I know there are those that don't like facts but their President is either a pathological liar, or this President stuff is way beyond his and his cabinet's abilities.

Am I the only one who is appalled at the blatant hypocrisy in play here?

If nothing else, this "flagging" convinces me of the potency of the Confederate flag, and the need to remove it from all public places bar museums.
