Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

Uhhhh, we are all immigrants or descendants of immigrants here with the exception of the Native Americans. We have plenty of home grown white wackos as well. Do we need serious immigration reform? Absolutely. Do we need to double or even quadruple the size of the Immigration service so we can quit rubber stamping every application and perhaps actually enforce the laws? Absolutely. We also need to do the same for Border Patrol - the most overworked and understaffed Federal Department in existence. Should we ban AK's from being sold? Yep. Duh, if you are hunting with a AK you are a major pussy, stay the f away from us. Target practice with a AK, get a real gun and learn to shoot with accuracy, you are not GI Joe. Will any of this stop crazy or hate filled lunatics of any kind. Nope, but it might slow them down a little. Tim and Linds need to get on the boat. Of course there are no Bubbas on the list Lindsay, BUT you can bet your sweet chubby ass there are some real big time lunatics on the list. No fly should actually = no guns and maybe after some legal due process a free trip back to whatever motherland y'all came from. Buh-bye.

Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

I'll just leave this here, enjoy Lee! You may want to double-check your math.

-An Oregon community college was shot up in October – by a mixed-race, half-black immigrant, Chris Harper-Mercer. Nine people were killed.

-Another mixed-race immigrant, Elliot Rodger, committed mass murder at a sunny college campus in Santa Barbara, killing twice as many people as Robert Dear did – in half the time!

-In 2013, two Chechen immigrants – also allegedly fleeing persecution – blew up the Boston Marathon.

-In 2012, Haitian immigrant Kesler Dufrene murdered as many people in Miami as Robert Dear did in Colorado Springs. One of Dufrene’s victims was a 15-year-old girl. Dufrene had already been convicted of a felony in the United States, so he should have been deported, but Obama had blocked his return to Haiti. As the murdered girl’s mother said, “Because of immigration, my daughter is not alive.”

-In 2011, nine months after Jared Loughner’s shooting spree in Tucson, Arizona, Eduardo Sencion, a Mexican immigrant, shot up a Carson City, Nevada, IHOP, killing four Americans, including three National Guardsmen and a 67-year old woman.

Eduardo was a Mexican immigrant. The Times ran two stories on his mass murder – on Pages 17 and 18. By contrast, Loughner’s shooting got dozens of write-ups in the Times, including at least three front-page articles, three editorials and 10 op-eds.

-In 2009 – the same year that model second-generation immigrant Nidal Malik Hasan murdered 13 soldiers at Fort Hood

–Model first-generation Vietnamese immigrant Jiverly Wong shot and killed 13 people in Binghamton, New York, because he was upset that people disrespected his English skills.

Who holds the record for the deadliest shooting by a single gunman in U.S. history, you ask? That would be Korean immigrant, Seung-Hui Cho, with 32 murders in a matter of hours at Virginia Tech in 2007.

The Times cheered anti-gun advocate Carolyn McCarthy’s election to Congress, but today, the paper seems to have forgotten the event that propelled her there: the 1993 Long Island Railroad massacre that left six passengers dead, including McCarthy’s husband. That mass shooting was committed by a Jamaican immigrant, Colin Ferguson.

It hasn’t even been a week, and the Times has already run more than a dozen articles on the shooting at a Colorado Springs shopping mall. Hey – everybody remember the wall-to-wall coverage of the mass shooting at a Salt Lake City shopping mall in 2007? Five people were killed.

Here’s a clue: Two days after the attack, the Times ran an article titled, “Anti-Bosnian Backlash Is Feared in Utah.” (The killer: Bosnian immigrant Sulejman Talovic.)

-Mexican immigrant Salvador Tapia slaughtered six employees at the Windy City Core Supply warehouse in Chicago in 2003.

Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

I'm not sure who you are referring to when you say "you guys". My opinions are my own. You want to discuss what i mentioned? As for other peoples' opinions you better ask them.

I consider radical islamists as my enemy and a separate issue from any other.

Re: “The Agenda: Senate votes down gun proposals; CofC athletic director out; Confederate flag snatchers

So when are you guys going to accept the threat of the white male previously-law-abiding gun-owner that happens to perform the other 99% of mass shootings?

Oh, that's right--they're all 'lone wolves' that need 'mental health treatment.'

Muslim does one? BAN MUSLIMS.

Re: “North Charleston police ask for input on Citizens Advisory Commission

I have a suggestion. How about asking the 'hood, and the angry citizens, and the rest of the criminals to stop using guns as a response to being "disrespected"? This town is having a real identity problem with the non-stop murder of their citizens by worthless pieces of shit who can't resolve anything without a gun. Then, maybe, the cops can start doing their jobs.

Re: “Oak Steakhouse rolls out new happy hour menu

Are you kidding? Those prices are ridiculous for "bar food". I guess they think their patrons will just ante up lots of money to experience happy hour at their restaurant. Not interested in their over priced food at all.

Re: “Recalling South Carolina's 1988 school shooting

I was there. A previous commenter (Lashonda) and I ran into the woods together. I remember her blood on my bright yellow shirt as we tried to stay close to each other. I remember that it happened so quickly she didn't even know she had been shot... I remember the fear in her voice when she realized she had. I remember seeing another student fall to his knees as a bullet hit him in the neck. I remember the wizzing sound the bullets made as they flew through the air. I remember my mom, puffy faced from crying, and sore from having just given birth to my younger brother taking me in her arms and squeezing so tight I thought she'd never let go bc all anyone would tell her was "2 little black girls are dead". I was 2 mnths away from my 7th birthday then. I'm 34 now, and I remember it all. How dare anyone try to flip this horrific day to feed into a political agenda. Shame on you! I pray you, and your children NEVER have to deal with the fear, and evil we endured that day!

How many of the people on bikes ride when it is raining or freezing cold? But, the lane is still closed off to 10's of thousands of cars and not used. Dumb idea!!

Dustin,
I hope your editors appreciate what a gem you are, or should I say a jewel? 😀 I hope you will be assigned to write recaps for the "Southern Charm" reunions. Your writing is just genius! Thanks for the serious moments, as well as the witty ones.

Its amazing how YOU still don't understand about Islamic terrorists... of which there is no doubt the Orlando killer was.

Only an idiot would assume that any LAW will stop Radical Islamists in their goals.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm newbie: The Finale

Many thanks from someone sworn to never become a slave to a cable provider for the superbly stylistic writing in "Confessions" that made it possible to "shep" (pardon the metaphor) my way through this entire salacious, semi-sweet, sordid, spiritually stirring, sublime season of Southern Charm without ever having to actually watch a single show.

Please make us all staggeringly happy by sadly announcing there will be a Season 4 and queuing up Firefall's "Cinderella" for poor Thomas.
