The Jewish and Catholic races must be very offended.
Ethics reform will truly be here when bribing a politician results in the death penalty for BOTH parties to the transaction.
I'm not sure which law in South Carolina prohibits the children of illegal immigrants from receiving in-state tuition.
SC code of laws Title 59 - Education
"The residence and domicile of a dependent minor shall be presumed to be that of the parent of such dependent minor."
Residency is generally proven with tax returns. I'm assuming that the US born children of illegal immigrants have trouble demonstrating their residency, despite where they may have graduated from high school, because their parents don't file tax returns. The mere presence of a student at a school cannot be used to demonstrate residency or every out-of-state college student would qualify for in-state tuition after their freshman year. Any US citizen should be able to claim independent status and demonstrate in-state residency if they have worked in a state for more than 12 months and filed taxes that prove they were not claimed as a dependent child on any other returns.
Seriously, Stars isn't included in the charleston top 50?
Residents at the Sgt Jasper are just sooo lucky they are going to make a bike path over the Ashley River. You will able to find cheap housing West of the Ashley and ride your bike to work!
Serving up da Haterade! Could the show be any worse than paying $85 bucks for a tent village pass at the F+W Fest? Yikes....
Crazy idea. Just crazy. Be sure and make bikes have licenses to help pay for this folly. And I guarantee it will get people killed. Time to build an elevated highway over the downtown connector so pass through traffic from James/Johns/Folly and other Island to I-26 and Mt. Pleasant will not have to go into the City. No wait, do a study on that first. It makes entirely too much sense to be practical.
Stegelin for Pulitzer..
Yes and CCP should feature black and Hispanic writers. As far as I can see, CCP discriminates against these groups. I have no idea why this is true. Of course in both cases these people generally did not really want to be Americans. Just to live here, taking what they could and giving back only what they have to. But don't hold your breath. CCP will probably remain Lilly white for some time to come.
Ima-- The kids are here legally. If they were born in the U.S., then they're citizens. That's in the Constitution.
It seems that our local government is as self serving and underhanded as our federal government. Wonder just who all are having their palms greased?
Phuck charleston, I'm moving to Austin, Texas!
"The CCP has some of the most idiotic fucking people reading and posting that I encounter in my daily life. I thought liberals were suppose to be intelligent."
Ned Hill, ladies and gentlemen. Ned Hill, TRUE AMERICAN, hating most other Americans. Proving once and for all that aggressive, angry Tea Baggery is the funniest political party ever to win the Presidency. Oh, wait...
I'm confused. So if there is someone here illegally who is not a citizen we must treat them exactly the same as if they were a citizen/
This hurts my brain. In a good way.
"Harpootlian declined to go into much detail and said he was hoping the plan would be kept under wraps."
Bang up job on that front.
I'll respond in depth when I have more time, but seriously, who the fuck are you people? The CCP has some of the most idiotic fucking people reading and posting that I encounter in my daily life. I thought liberals were suppose to be intelligent.
The city and developers do not give a shizz about affordable housing or quality of life for downtown residents. It's all about the tax base. Most of downtown is quickly approaching an upper middle class to upper class enclave. It's only going to keep getting worse. The working and middle class are getting pushed out.
Ned, you must have little understanding of engineering costs if you think 100k or even 600k would be close to enough money to build a stand alone pedestrian / bike bridge. The 1200 foot Millennium Bridge in London cost over 20 million pound sterling.
As for your description of the job locations, remember the whole silicon harbor thing? I know many people who work in internet related business downtown. The city should move to keep more of those employees living and spending their money in the city and WA.
Look at cities like Pittsburgh if you want a model of how to re-invent a city. Improving the pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure was an important part to the city's rebirth as a tech hub. Take for example the Hot Metal Bridge, repurposed train bridge split into 2 sections, a roadway and a pedestrian bridge. Look at the results, they went from a dying former industrial center to the #1 most livable city.
IP your analogy falls short in that in both cases the "story" from the invading country is that troops were sent in to protect ethnic russians and ethnic germans living in those countries. I don't see the mexican army coming across the Texas border.
