In true South Carolina slave-state owning style, Ms. Haley is continuing the tradition of exploitation of the working class, except that now we have our freedom and aren't bought and sold. We ought to continue to unionize, however, to protect ourselves from the corporate greedy barons Ms. Haley has befriended. How many jobs paying livable wages with benefits will be created in this state as a result of her programs? And what kind of tax benefits is Ms. Haley giving to these corporate monsters, tax benefits that you and I, the average SC tax-paying citizen, will have to pay for in the form of higher taxes, lower services and continuation of our being at the bottom of the food chain.
Ever read SC Articles of Secesion? No? It's very interesting with so many references to how those in the "non-slave" states are enforcing their will upon the "slave" states. Amazing that anyone with any respect would find honor in commemorating a past that was solely about buying and selling humans to be exploited for commercial uses and increase wealth of the owners of this property. That's just beyond reason, and you think the men who fought for this right to exploit and engage in human trafficking are to be venerated? I don't think so. Humans are not chattel, and no state right can infringe on that undeniable fact. Denial is no place to reside.
Without some verifiable means of checking the voting machines, the "events" and their effects on the final tabulations will never be known, so what's the point of having these machines? We need independent, verifiable voting records. Anything less than that is not democracy in action but rather special interests at play.
Would love to have seen this review in your printed version. Please continue to keep your reviews in your printed paper...I've always looked to the "City Paper" as my gateway to the arts community in Charleston. If I must rely on what appears in the composte and courier, I'll be greatly distressed. And having to go online everytime to read your reviews takes away the joy I have, after a long week at work ON MY COMPUTER, of relaxing in a comfortable chair, drink in hand, reading the "City Paper" from cover to cover.
Would also have liked to have seen something specific about some of the other actor's performances rather than just lumping them all together as one entity. They work hard to make their characters real and unique and deserve credit when they've accomplished that.
