The Peddlers license requirement was enacted IN RESPONSE to unruly juveniles stealing palmettos (and damaging people's trees), their threatening behavior to get people to buy their palmetto roses, and other problems.
It may be too bad that some "bad eggs" made things harder on their well-behaved fellow peddlers, but the response was warranted.
I suggest all the complainers that have recently arrived "from off" do some research in the City Paper and Post and Courier archives if they deny that many peddlers were a public problem!
"mat, let me type slower so you can keep up"
I'm monitoring your keystrokes, and you're not typing slower.
Check the Police reports from this Summer and you find arrest reports from the Aquarium where they arrested one of the Palmetto Rose thugs who had a hand gun on him and the other kid had a knife with a 8 inch blade...even worse several of them use the Rose Project to sell drugs around town. Wake up Charleston Police and do your job!
So why they dont approach the panhandlers who i see everyday comimg off 526 with a sign not a dam license collecting and solicitating money from others guess thats legal in the city of charleston cause they dont get dispatch to that location and others in chas where i see majority whites holding these sign asking for money not a dam job but they ride by like they dont c them dam kind. Guess thats what the juvenilles bettsr start doing since its legal in their eyesights. Cant even make a honest dollar these days and for a kid trying to actually trying to do the right thing in life thats real pittyful froñ depriving him in that nature we got bigger problems to deal with then arresting someone for making a honest living at a early age. So
The ones talking im going to see how many they arrest at the end of 526 who dont even have permits but out there everyday collecting and the officers ride by then that will tell the story of whats really going
The Carnival Corporation benefits from the absence of regulation and goes as far as ignoring passenger safety in the interest of pursuing profits. There is no doubt that the cruise industry needs to abide by limits and standards. One such limit is that a cruise line not be allowed to board passengers and sail into a hurricane. On October 27, 2012, the Caribbean Princess, owned by Carnival, boarded passengers in Red Hook, Brooklyn and sailed into Hurricane Sandy. Voyage B 237 could not sail north, south or east and avoid the super storm. Passengers were given the cruel choice: Lose your money or risk your lives. Why was this allowed? For the same reason that Carnival's mega ships release toxic discharges into Charleston's air and waters -- because of lack of regulation. People who are thinking of booking a cruise should boycott ships owned by Carnival. Citizens should vote for candidates who are willing to enact laws to prevent abuses by cruise lines and cruise ships.
mat, let me type slower so you can keep up, it is a very consistent narrative. America is a great country founded by individuals that espoused freedom, democracy, and capitalism. America is the greatest country ever, period, bar none. Democracy & capitalism have done more good than all other systems combined. America became great long before big gubment and taxes. But things have changed and America is on the decline and the speed of this decline is directly correlated to the growth of the federal government and the acceptance and use of leftist social policy and central planning. Communism has killed hundreds of millions and is devoid of morality and human rights. Socialism is a failure as well and has only work for relatively short periods in tiny countries with incredibly homogenous cultures. These are undeniable truths that idiots on the let refuse to accept. Or you privately accept it but deny publicly because you are a radical leftist and closeted communist.
mat, I might respect you some if you stopped being so intellectually dishonest and admit that you are a radical socialist and have deep rooted communist sympathies.
