Re: “Charleston's infrastructure is in need of repair

Unfortunately it does seem like the only thing that will move companies and/or the local government to invest in infrastructure is a disaster or the threat of one. I'd prefer using the threat to get the job done before the real disaster happens. For example, remember the bridge in Minn that fell mid-rush hour? (I-35W Mississippi River bridge) After that, all states were required to do assessments of their bridges and many were deemed unsafe. Without that imperative, how many of those states would have done the assessment proactively? Not many, if any. It all comes down to prioritization, and the threat of disaster makes the priority go up.

Oh, and Yuengling, climate change means colder winters too. You might want to try looking up some of those facts you talk about so loosely.

Re: “Jim DeMint believes in "legitimate rape"

This guy is such an idiot, and I hope that his next campaign goes just as successfully at Akin's has.

Re: “Are abstinence-only programs the solution?

What a waste of money. As soon as you tell a teenager that he or she shouldn't do something, it makes them want to do it more. You tell them the truth about sexual health, STDs, and pregnancy - that is the best way to keep our kids safe and healthy. It would likely promote abstinence too.

Re: “Pollo Loko Peruvian

@Francis - this is not the same Pollo Tropical chain as Miami.
