If only there was some sort of service where buses can pick people up at a designated stop and take them to some type of shelter that could withstand a storm.

Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

Hey Christina Woodard, has anyone ever taught you how to write a sentence by using proper punctuation, such as a period? Do you know what a run-on sentence is? Theres no way to follow your writing because I cant t figure out where one thought ends and another begins.

Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

Every couple of years I start getting bit by these little demons. I was told by a friend that those pesky buggers hate Vicks Vapor Rub. Since I had tried just about everything else. I went to my local Walmart and bought the Vicks liquid you pour into a humidifier. Since I had read they also do not like heat, I came up with a plan. Take my floor steamer, add water and pour the liquid Vicks in the well, as well. Thank you Jesus. Cleared everything out and steamed each room everyday for 2-3 days. My livingroom was the worst. I also steamed my bare mattress, couch and just got rid of our rug. Like I said this is about an every other year issue. This has worked for me and my family. Since the first horrible time of their invasion, I have since purchased a leather couch and turned my house into more of a minimalist style. The leather can be wiped. Good luck. This is the worst ever! I hope maybe, my experience may help others.

Was Governor McMasters guilty of premature evacuation? I'm certainly not the one to make that call...

I think. it is funny that a community so against water bottles like mt p, would have their moral standing on the subject mocked by corporates that pull the fake emergency projection on TV just to make them buy the shit on the shelves AFTER ALL. Those stock brokers sure showed you

Re: “For some in Charleston, evacuating for Florence is a privilege they just can't afford

Ya I dont see anyone on TV saying it, but we know it is just a tropical storm.

Dont get mad at me because they cry the sky is falling, and then make everyone here on TV get up and do the safety procedure. I'm not talking about those just doing their job either. I dont call bullshit on the local community who are just being prepared, but this is getting out of control and ridiculous every year like Christmas music in stores before Thanksgiving. I wonder how walmart/coca cola's stock price looks after all those water bottles sold... a little price bump before the holidays anyone? Put 10000 on home depot stock now, and you'll thank me after the light showers tomorrow.

Re: “For some in Charleston, evacuating for Florence is a privilege they just can't afford

At least Mcmaster did a better job than Haley for our "fire drill" this time. He immediately used BOTH east and west lanes to go west from the beginning which makes traffic to Columbia much faster than when Nicki Haley did the i26 closure when she used only i26 west and it took 10 hours to drive to Columbia traffic was so bad.
Mcmaster is already showing himself as somewhat more capable than haley. EVEN IF all he was in charge of was a yearly statewide fire drill the media makes us dance to.

You do understand that this hurricane is sensationalization right? Biggest storm since hugo every year MY ASS. More like same script they read every year. This kind of shit makes me think they faked the moon landing more and more.

Isn't it funny they lost the original copy of the moon landing footage? One of these days alice! Does anyone these days still get the moneymooners reference!?!

Young people have no idea about the open air prison they are graduating into. They were not alive during 9/11.

Isis was created by United states mercenary schools in Libya, and is just as fake. I'm American and know this. How is nikki haley saying otherwise with a straight face at the U.N.

The whole world is like, "is this b**** out of her mind?"

Sce&g still wants their money from us! Do they get federal relief money too? Why aren't they taking it off of our bill? Oh I get it, because it only goes to the owners of sce&g + my personal friends. Thank you for your business
I'm just talking shit while telling the truth joking about it like trump.

Re: “Trespassing laws are regularly used to criminalize sleeping in public, undermining Charleston's 'Housing First' approach to homelessness

Perhaps we need an "orphan" government spending for people without any support network? Kind of like social security you can use when your young if in dire straits without friends or family?

Re: “Trespassing laws are regularly used to criminalize sleeping in public, undermining Charleston's 'Housing First' approach to homelessness

Wait till they start hunting these human beings down in the forest in fifty years planet of the apes style. Like jesus said, " if they are doing this to each other when the mountains are green can u imagine what they will do when the mountains are dried up?".

What else we can do? Some of these individuals seem to be hell bent on self destruction despite help. With some drug/alcohol addicts, being locked up for a couple days might save their life. At least they get sober for the only time that year. People cannot make their own decisions at all to begin with unless they are sober, so What else can and should we do? Maybe offer rehabilitation programs for the homeless after a release from a night in jail? That way drifters are at least confirmed to not be roaming killers that way. Then we can tell them while they are sober minded what we can do to help them.

I have seen 180 place help a crack addicted family, and I have never seen something actually help people so much in reality. They were living in abandoned houses downtown with some real crazies. They have been drug free for almost a year and are currently walking down the long road of seeing their kids through the court system again. They have good full time jobs, and them starting down the long road to recovery wouldn't have been possible at all without 180 place. I didn't even believe people that far gone could come back to life until personally witnessing it.
More low income housing? That is like mental jail too where it keeps people afraid of making too much and elevating themselves to independancy( because they lose support completely once they hit a higher income bracket).

Re: “Trespassing laws are regularly used to criminalize sleeping in public, undermining Charleston's 'Housing First' approach to homelessness

Why dont they pay south carolinians to recycle? In California we get 5 cents a can or bottle that is turned in. Poor people could use this money and it would encourage more people to recycle. Why do they not pay us here for this?

They are not paying us for our recycled cans and bottles here our 5 cents and I want to know why. Are the recycling centers just pocketing the money?

I easily have like five dollars worth of bottles and cans in my trash right now, and I'm going to throw it away on purpose now because F*** them for stealing our money while all that jesus talk of "going green". Their "profit" is from the good book of accounting, not the bible. The bottom dollar takes precedent over what works and encourages people for the greater good.

Meanwhile we pump MILLIONS of pieces of plastic marble sized junk into our ocean EVERY DAY through our outdated water treatment facilities. This is Charleston county alone I believe.

Just being is a crime now unless you are paying taxes somewhere. The bottom line. If you are not an income producing unit, you must be fined or incarcerated.

Re: “Author Issac J. Bailey on the prison system, raising children, and the deadly S.C. prison riot that his brother managed to avoid

The facts are a little hard to follow. I believe he has two brothers, Herbert and James. Both are in jail, the former for murdering an anonymous "white ship owner" the latter for an unmentioned crime. That was my read on it, anyway.

One of those brothers is referred to by the interviewer as "heroic"! The gems one finds in CCP is really laughable sometimes!

Re: “Author Issac J. Bailey on the prison system, raising children, and the deadly S.C. prison riot that his brother managed to avoid

"At the end of 2016, federal and state prisons held 47,100 more African-American inmates than white inmates, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics. That's a drop from 94,800 in 2016 [sic]. Still, for a group that made up about 12 percent of the U.S. population in 2016, the odds are stacked against you..."

I guess that second 2016 is wrong?

Also in 2016, according to FBI UCR reports, there were 11,390 murders where the race of the offender was known. Of those, 6095 or 54%, were black offenders despite blacks only comprising about 12% of the US population.

Criminal activity is the primary factor here.

Re: “Students are also feeling the pinch in Charleston's affordable housing crisis

I grew up 3 blocks from Georgetown University in DC - another city campus that is short on student beds. Off-campus housing costs there are comparable and group houses abound. A lot of town v gown animosity, though.

Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

I just put bowls out with Dawn Dish soap & Apple Cider Vinegar. Within seconds, there was were hundreds in the bowls, gives me the willies seeing them. Don't know why they appeared? Sure do pray this works to get rid of them!
I live in Washington State, never had this problem before.
