New York deli my @$$. I haven't found any New York style claim to be even close, anywhere in Charleston. My advice...just be a Charleston restaurant, and let New York be New York. We don't need more New York in Charleston.
It's not that people buy into the idiocy, it's that people are too busy in their own "over stimulated" lives to be intimately involved in the situation. As with many other circumstances, we default to truing our government to take care of things.
The problem is not that government can't do it; it's that they're not incentivized to do it. Without sounding like a whacko, the military industrial complex is just too powerful for our elected officials to resist without outside incentive.
These people understand the root causes of problems, but just like physicians and the pharmaceutical industry, "solving" a problem closes the spigot on profits made from "treating" the problem.
Change is on its way. Just look at the primary in the Democratic Party. American citizens are responding differently than they have before. The more people who practice citizenry, the closer we get to where we want to be.
I couldn't agree more. As a yankee in Charleston, I'm saddened to see the status quo's arrival in this beautiful oasis of freedom and individuality.
It's up to all of us to stand up for what we want this place to be. Local politicians will always vote their financial interests, unless the constituency holds their feet to the fire.
Let's step up in the next election cycle Charleston. Let's put some good candidates up!
