"Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide." – John…
This might be one of the bigger jokes in the Charleston area. Granted, the place has been updated nicely - and the dj is great - BUT, we arent in Vegas fellas. The rude doorman/bouncers with their ear pieces and tough guy attitudes is laughable. Pricey drinks and bartenders who make you feel lucky to get served doesn't last long here. Best was a fight in the parking lot at 2 AM. Mount Pleasant people! Take it to N Chuck!
"In other words, Craig ain’t pass the Bar, but he knows a little bit, enough so you won’t accompany him on this trip."
I have to admit I inherently matched the cadence starting at "Bar" - nicely done.
I wish the media would reiterate that The Citadel (The Board of Visitors, The Alumni Association, cadets - everyone) wants that flag GONE. The only people that can take it down is the state Legislature. Anyone else removing it would be violating the law. Complain to your state rep!!!!
That location just doesn't work. I think it used to be an Arizona's in the mid-90's. Great bar for the college crowd.
factoryconnection continues to try to impress people today with a smorgasbord of condescension and professorialism. He leads his comment with a compliment to the author; nicely done. Then he proceeds to validate the factual basis for one of the author's positions. This regurgitation tells us that most of the readers of this paper are not quite as smart as he.
Of course, he marries a high-minded logic term with conversational English and incorrect grammar. "Jack trots out a couple rhetorical fallacies today," trotted away from a necessary preposition that leaves us wondering if he would say or write, "there are a few of ridiculous sentences in his comment?"
To be fair to Mr. Connection, this is merely a fulfilled promise to use his Word of the Day Calendar once a day. Sneaky "Tautological."
On ANYONE thinking the "war was all about slavery:"
"It was not, nor did anyone think so until a recent generation of Marxist-influenced historians, ardent champions of the centralized industrial state, began to argue that it was."
Uhhh - this is just factually incorrect. So blatantly incorrect, I cannot even take it seriously as an argument. You can probably come up with some better arguments that economic viability of the Southern states was threatened to a point of war - by virtue of being a slave-based economy -but that still brings you back to... slavery. How you get around the moral arguments made, printed, studied, re-printed prior to the "recent generation" that so many have cited already is just intellectually dishonest.
Since when has a war been all (or not at all) about any one thing?
