Re: “Beloved mobile bakery BKeD Shop opens its first storefront at WestEdge on Fri. June 22

Youre reading an article about a wonderful upcoming bakery who is super excited about opening up and supporting the local community in the process. If you read this article and the chipped nail polish and tattoo are the only thing you got out of it then OBVIOUSLY you did not read the article. LYNNAR or whatever your real name is take your negativity elsewhere. Your remark had absolutely nothing to do with the owners, the amazing product they have to offer or the shop. Youre a negative hateful shrew. Take your opinions elsewhere.

Re: “Revisiting the artist-audience contract after Spoleto 2018

Walk out on an official event where President Trump is speaking = Bravo! The Resistance! Fuck Trump!

Walk out of a commercial performance that you bought a ticket for but don't like = How dare you! You owe the performers your loyalty!

Re: “Beloved mobile bakery BKeD Shop opens its first storefront at WestEdge on Fri. June 22

My favorite people have chipped black nail polish (that they do themselves as opposed to having their nails done) and cool tats. They also dont worry about what those tats are gonna look like at whatever age because its a part of who they are and a part of their personal style. I dont know whose hand and arm that is but you can bet Im going to promote them doubly because of your snarky comments. If you want to see the ever so posh and elegant work of NYC photographers, go to New York...and feel free to stay there.

Re: “Ruling for anti-gay baker and 1968 Piggie Park case both weighed religious freedom to discriminate with different results

Dude I haven't been to church since I was a kid. So don't lump me in as some religious fundamentalist. My point is the proprietor of a business should be able to serve who he/she wants. If the owners are bigots, racists, homophobes, etc. then 99.9% of the time the business will fail and Capitilism plays out as intended. But big brother shouldn't hold a gun to their head and say bake the damn cake! When Charleston did away with smoking in bars and restaurants, I was firmly against it. Not because I was a chimney, but I believe the owner should make that choice. If patrons decided not to enter, then the business may close. OR, some people may actually want to visit that environment and the business may thrive. But at the end of the day it was the owners choice, not the local and federal municipalities. It seems as far as Progressives go, which you are I'm sure, freedom of choice is great, as long as the choice falls completely in line with your line of thinking.

Re: “Pence's Liquor and Wine

I've been going to this store since it opened. Good selection of wine and liquor.
The owner has a hard job - tourists get upset he cannot sell mixers, has to close at 7 & isn't open on Sundays. The parking lot situation was difficult with everyone from near by businesses and events spots using the lot;however, it has improved.
I am often stopped by tourists trying to find a liquor store after they see Charleston restaurant cocktail prices. I send them to Pence's.

Re: “Uptown Social encourages conversation with solid bar food, boozy slushies, and rooftop views

When we went on a Sunday night it was FULL of young students all in a huge long line waiting to get upstairs. The downstairs looked like it had been cleared of all furniture, it was pretty empty, with 2 people deep of the same young students. I felt like I had been transported back to a dirty student bar, and it seemed they were ready for a similar environment with the heavy amount of door attendee's checking the ID of everyone. No thanks. My age group has taken me past the student bars, and I will stick to the real dive bars when looking for one.

Totally agree with Rachel B. Your recaps are the best part of the entire show. I don't know how many times this made me laugh out loud right now. Your descriptions of Craig are amazing....I love him, but he does need protection from himself at this point. Thanks for another great post!

Dustin thank God. I have been very impatiently waiting for your recap and then when it wasn't up I thought something terrible had happened. Like your bosses said you couldn't keep doing these recaps. Yours are the best in the whole country and I live in Oregon.

Looks good, but maybe have your nails done next time. Really, a chipped nail while having a photo op? And the tattoo? Just wait when you hit 50 how attractive it will look. But , also, could have done without in a photo op. Not sure a NYC photographer would have allowed it.

Re: “Turns out that Archie Parnell's history as a Goldman Sachs banker wasn't the only thing we knew little about

Archie has atoned for his sin (45 years ago). He knows the tax laws and how the lobbyists work with our senators to fix laws that will benefit the large corporations, who in turn give huge amounts of money to the super pacs which keeps them in government. He can see to it that these loop holes are closed. Go Archie!

Re: “A South Carolina Democrat's notes after watching the Republican primary

Lynnar, I am certainly no fan of Herbert Marcuse, he was a Marxist. And Angela Davis is a member of the Communist Party USA, she is dangerous. That is not normal Progressivism, that is Marxism. Normal progressivism is like universal health insurance, like they have in most European countries. Yet we can't have this here, because many claim it is socialism. Yet in countries like Germany and France, it is not a state-run insurance, it is run by non-profit private insurance companies,but it has to be for all citizens. That is not socialism. That is what we need here. Even Nixon advocated universal health insurance. He was quite progressive. Even though he was a Republican. But in today's Republican party, such opinions are rejected, it has become dominated by ultraconservatives. Like, most Republican politicians would even want to ban all abortions. That is not what most Republicans advocated when Roe v. Wade was decided.
While it is true that public universities are generally dominated by liberals, and so are most private non-religious universities, religious universities are generally dominated by conservatives. Some are even dominated by creationists. Look at Bob Jones university here in SC. Or certainly here the Charleston Southern University in North Charleston, affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention, is not dominated by liberals. Maybe the College of Charleston, though its president is Glenn McConnell, a former Republican politician, who loves the Confederate flags. And radio media is dominated by conservatives. Look at the radio news talk shows here on WTMA or WSC, all hosted by ultraconservatives. And their callers are generally ultraconservatives too. People conservative on all issues, not independent thinkers.
Of course Trump is no Hitler. But he is generally pushing an ultraconservative agenda, except for protectionism, which used to be advocated mainly by some progressives. I am mostly progressive, but I reject protectionism. I want all tariffs gone.

Re: “With assault case pending against her own colleague, Rep. Gilda Cobb-Hunter says Archie Parnell "deserves a second chance"

The Democrats of S.C. District 5 have voiced their opinion by selecting Archie Parnell in the Primary to be the Congressional candidate in November. It was a stout win of 60%. Now is the time for local, state, and national Democratic parties to realize a upcoming opportunity available to them to assist the 5 th district increase the number of S.C. Democratic Congressmen by one.
