"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!
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?
Dark and Stormy or Mojitos are perfect for Charleston weather.
$451M is not going to help us get out of this hole. If republicans want to talk budget cuts and one or more of the following isn't in the sentence: Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, or Defense - I don't want them wasting my time.
The more he talks about PBS the more he doesn't have to talk about what really matters. These issues are great for stirring the pot and winning some conservative "cred" - but give us a break. PBS isn't what is bankrupting this nation. DeMint thinks we are stupid and that this helps our country. He doesn't hate Elmo - he hates the News Hour (the only news show left that actually provides news beyond platitudes and oversimplifications).
