Re: “Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ

Dear FCB!

OK! OK! OK! I did not clearly state myself!!!!! Ron's does not charge $5 ON WEDNESDAY NIGHTS for the Lowcountry Blues Club jams. They do charge $5 or a bit more at the door when they have performers on weekends and for special occasions.

If you are looking for $1 drafts like back when you were a cheap kid in college or high school, the drinks cost more than that. Most bar stools or chairs are not as comfy as the couch at home. Maybe you should stay home in moms basement and drink up dads beer!

The ADULTS are at Ron's WA on Wednesday nights and they are having a lot of ADULT fun, drinking a lot of intelligently priced ADULT beverages and listening and dancing to some great blues music.

So don't be a pill! Get out spend a few bucks and support local live music.

Re: “Fast food workers strike hits Charleston

I started as a $2.50 minimum wage worker at Taco Bell back when Glenn Bell was the sole owner. I was told that if I did well after 3 weeks I would get a raise. I did well, I got a raise. I was told if I offered to work the odd hours, I would get paid more hours and be considered for a higher rate. I did and they paid me more. I became a shift manager and they paid me more. I became an assistant manager and they paid me more and benefits. I became a manager and they paid me more. I became a traveling trainer opening new Taco Bells and training staff and managers. I made sure every new employee knew where I started. I then quit and went back to school to get a degree in something that I was told was marketable. I did not get a degree in Black Studies or Gay History in America or any number of absolutely useless degrees many have received from these so called schools (yes I include South Carolina and C of C!). Now I make a nice little living and I get to wake up everyday working in a field I love doing a job I enjoy.

Where did I go wrong?

Re: “We must stand up to the Right's voter suppression efforts

Isn't it interesting to see how the Dems have this great machine in place to get people to register, but are incapable of getting those same people to get an ID! Every American has the right to vote unless they did something (felony) stupid. Don't EVER tie voting to paying taxes or not being on welfare or having served in the military. That is not what we believe in as Americans.

Re: “Delusion and denial do not make sound opinion

I don't need a conservative or a liberal writer to see the world or Charleston. I grew up poor, my mom a single woman with three sons all by different fathers, she was a factory worker; does the color matter?. I went to high school and graduated, I went to college and did not graduate; does the color matter?. I found my passion in life and found a way to make a living at it; does the color matter?

Along the way I have hired a lot of people. I have not hired a lot more. The ones I have not hired were not strong enough to finish high school or earn a G.E.D. Why would they be strong enough to work for me? Many could not speak English, how can they represent my company? Many were teenage girls with 4-5-6 yr old kids. How can I trust them to make good decisions? Where is the color in all this? What has color got to do with being educated or well spoken? What does it have to do with making good life choices? What does any of this have to do with color?

I just read an article in the NY Times that pointed out that the unemployment rate among married minorities was just over 6%, for whites just over 7%. The unemployment rate among college educated, married minorities was just over 3%, for whites just under 6%. You need to take off those racial blinders and start looking at the world.

Kids who stay in school do better than those who do not, regardless of color. Women who marry and start families, in the traditional way, do better than those hooking up with their baby-daddy of the season.

Color? You opinions diminish the evil of racism every time you make these arguments. Delusion and denial do not make sound opinion, indeed.

Re: “Fiery Ron's Home Team BBQ

First, they do not charge admission any more.
Second, BBQ is good or not good depending on what you like. I am from KC, what I like ain't to be found in Chucktown
Third, The blues are only alive here. I cannot find a place that hosts blues on a regular basis in town. An acoustic duo is just the bar being cheap!
Fourth, I get the Roncho's. Great late night munchies.
