Re: “Shedding light on Charleston's homeless problem

Clarkie, you obviously are not a True Christian, as my husband and I are. We worship The Lord and live by The Bible. There are many stories of man eating lesser men and beasts, that is why they are here! They fall from Gods grace and that is their lot.

"Alas the cries of the drunkard were stilled by God as the followers placed him verily into the large heated cauldron and upon he they heaped many vegetables including carrot and corn. Let not him that eateth no man despise him that eateth of man; and let not him which eateth not man judge him that eateth man: for God hath received him." Romans 14:2

Leviticus 26:2
You shall eat the flesh of your sons, and you shall eat the flesh of your daughters.

Read your Bible Clarkie!

Re: “FCC Commissioner Mignon Clyburn is one of five people who will vote on Net Neutrality today

This is a DIRECT stab to the American Constitution and The People. These five leaders and Obama think they are ABOVE the Law?

Re: “I suck at busking

Ima, you got me. I was afraid of that - it's not that we don't have them it's just that I haven't seen them. I hope it stays that way.

Re: “The Agenda: Senator calls women "lesser cut of meat"; Biden coming to SC; CofC-USC season opener

Ahhh... Just want to point out that "Democratic Washington Governor John Kitzhaber" is actually "Democratic OREGON Governor John Kitzhaber"... Washington's governor is Jay Inslee. Pretty easy to look up.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

Suddenly, bicycle riding is NOT a viable means of transportation? Huh. Cause I thought all the support for bicycle lanes and "sharing the road" and closing down the bridge was about making it easier for poor people to get to work. I guess the support must be coming from douchebags in spandex who want the rest of society to fund their hobby. Who knew?

Isn't that right Mr. Seekings? Your choice appears to be hypocrite or pariah.

Re: “Today's 'freezing rain' closings explained

Impoverished families living in cold climates are much more likely to spend money on cold weather gear than those living where the average temperature in the dead of winter is 60 degrees . It's sad that you need that explained to you.

"Allowing the FCC to regulate the web as a public utility...". Leave it to the so called progressives to ruin a good thing. Everyone should be against this.

Guess whats next after this.. ?

I agree John. We should totally allow Comcast, Time-Warner and others to monopolize and throttle the internet bandwidth on which we have all come to depend and have all paid for with incalculable public funds.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

the flaw to Mr. Parker's argument is that the housing costs will likely be too high for the average employee at MUSC or CofC. If anything, the low rents they just eliminated in the old Sgt. Jasper now forced people who perhaps lived there and worked downtown to move off the peninsula and drive to work.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

Great column today by Mr. Wooten. Although he did seem to drink the Beach Co. Kool-Aid; he did make a great point by mocking what could be built there with the current Limited Business Zoning. The neighborhood has a problem with 450 ppl living there, but what if, as Mr. Wooten states, a mini golf or strip mall were built there. You know, things legally allowed in the LB Zoning.

Re: “Today's 'freezing rain' closings explained

"Jaxx just gave all y'all the COLD hard facts on school closings here and why."

Haha ya those were some great facts.

Let's start with "children from less fortunate families without proper foul weather gear aren't left standing outside all morning waiting on a bus"

I guess there are no northern less fortunate families, all the poor have only huddled together here in the lowcountry! All those damn yankees have thick luxurious fur coats made from them animals they trapped!

We wouldnt want to fix the piss-poor road system and infrastructure, let's just close shit up when it is freezing rain outside!

"packing up all of your belongings, leaving behind all of your family and friends, and moving 800 miles south to escape the cold?"
WHat is the issue with that? Ever heard of moving for job re-location? Military retirement? Retirement? Nothing AlexM or I stated said anything about loving our previous locations any more than we love here. We just find it ridiculous that people cant drive when it rains outside or is slippery, majority of the rest of the country can why can't we here?

"You tough yankees sure know how to handle cold weather"
Grew up in it, worked in Alaska, and Norway while in the military, and hate everything about the cold. Hence why I am here. I am acclimated to the warmth and probably hate this weather as much as a born and bred local!

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

There's more to the mix of residents in the "affected" areas than just the well-to-do, but certainly more well-to-do than not. Many have lived in the area for decades before million dollar homes were the norm. These are their life-long communities. That being said, your take on parking is correct. Those supposed new bikers won't find any bike lines to ride on. No access is going to be created for all of these biking folks. Where would you put bike lines when the streets are strewn with cars already and two cars cannot pass between them? Put in the same amount of apartment as existed before. Toss in a couple dozen expensive townhomes for profit and be done with it.

Re: “A few thoughts on the Sgt. Jasper PUD parking spin

All of the people currently being priced out of the Sgt. Jasper and other similar locations on the peninsula are going to be moving in droves to places like Park Circle, pricing out the people currently living there without a hint of irony. The priced-out Park Circle people will move to Awendaw, pricing out those hillbillies (who will move into the dark recesses of Francis Marion Forest, living off bobcats and bootstraps). And then all of the people who moved to Awendaw will complain there is not enough infrastructure to support the influx of people, thus clamoring for more development, all the while complaining about all of these new people moving into Awendaw (people who are trying to escape the Beach Company's urban sprawl themselves) and the cycle will begin anew.

Awesome! I wonder if that means the Low Country will get an inside look at the secret rules the government is planning for the internet.

I prefer the statues. You don't have to pretend to not hear them when you're walking by.

Re: “Sometimes I feel as if I'm failing as a mother

Sometimes I feel as if I'm failing as a non-breeder. Just kidding, it's great not being exhausted all the time and second-guessing every decision I make. Ah, and the excessive disposable income! Extremely little responsibility! The endless opportunities for peace and quiet! The ability to go wherever I want whenever I want!

My breeder friends always say to me "Ron, it's worth it!" but who are they trying to convince? Me or themselves?

Re: “Deadspin wasted a post complaining about ABC News 4 wasting time reporting on 'cosplaying' Elsa arrest

I have to imagine that this will bode well for Glass Slipper, the business that the Elsa actress represented. I thoroughly enjoyed it, as a matter of fact.

I'm sure we'll get a formal apology that there was a break in the rape, murder, and traffic-accident coverage that we all really want to see from our couches in the evening.

you haven't been to the Market on a summer evening in the last 10 years have you Cid? That's about how long the "silver people" have been coming here.

Re: “I suck at busking

Good article, well-written.

Busking by playing music well or not so well is one thing. That's entertainment.

I am glad we don't have, or at least I haven't seen, the type of buskers which are very common in Europe: people pretending to be statues. Their whole gig is painting themselves and their clothes and stuff to look silver or stone or bronze and then standing still. And expecting money for it.
