Re: “I hereby admit: I am a Southerner, I am part of the problem

Actually no this is nonsense with all due respect. It's mostly Northerners who pride on being racists.
"Bro"-saying Rivera Nuyorican, who's gotten more hate and racism from whites up North than down here in Orlando where I live now.

Re: “Homophobic, anti-abortion secessionist and defeated S.C. senator senses that the time is right to return to politics

Those who label people as being homophobic or guilty of showing prejudice against people whose religions requires that they orient away from homosexuality. Use of the term shows anti-Christian and possibly anti-Muslim bias, and many in our society are using their same-sex leanings to get ahead, and particularly in governmental agencies. Labeling people as homophobic is a good way to deflect away from the real question. Are these people really the best qualified to get the promotion or not?

Gays can always claim discrimination if they don't get a job or are passed over for promotion, in much the same way that members of many special interest groups have done for eons. The rhetoric goes something like "You need to hire more of this or that group because we have been discriminated against in the past." It is never, "You need to hire me because I am inherently better qualified to do this task and I can prove it." This ploy has been used by various ethnic groups, women, veterans, and even the handicapped and always will be. And it works so well because more often or not, it's true!

And far too many gays use their homosexuality as a shield to excuse their lack of ability. Meanwhile in schools, they gravitate toward physical education positions like Eddie Fischer. You certainly have to wonder if this is not to give them access to students who would never dream they would be abused sexually by someone of their same gender. I have know at least half a dozen gays who were or are PE "teachers." I am sure there are hundreds if not thousands more, and that includes coaches. Maybe because they are stimulated by the sight of their own gender in motion and in the showers? Maybe because their enjoy the hands-on aspect of the profession? Maybe they suffer from low T and it gives their libido a boost?

Phobic infers someone has an irrational fear of something, where many people just don't like homosexual tendencies because it flies in the face of their religious requirement to be plentiful and multiply. Actually, it goes beyond that. Gays are also inherently not family oriented in the sense of having children and families of their own. So that topic of discussion is off the table. Most gays are prone to consume alcohol, so they have little in common with non-drinkers. And many of them are delusional in this regard. Gays tend to be anti-social under-achievers who are usually far too self-absorbed to be much fun to socialize with. Some think that if they adopt children it somehow makes them parents. But most don't and so there is little of mutual interest to talk about where family life is concerned.

By now it should be obvious to everyone that I just don't understand the situation and are chomping at the bits to suggest that if there were a gay history month I might better appreciate the significant contributions gays have made to society. Well of course there is a LBGT month and it even has its own flag. Like it is some kind of separate nation. Let not talk about their fight for equality. Obviously they will never be on equal footing with a heterosexual in a reproductive sense. Lets talk about their value to society as a group. And as to whether or not they are derelict in not passing their obviously superior DNA on to future generations.

And while on that subject, if you can lump transvestites who at birth were denied a biological predisposition in with others who oriented by choice or force into their sexual identity, then why not include every and any one who is in some way different and has suffered discrimination because of it. Including people born with no limbs are who were extremely gifted and held back in school because of it? Why not include everyone who has been or felt left out or oppressed for any reason whatsoever.

How about a truly inclusive Diversity History Month that focuses more on how we are alike than how we are different! Power to the disenfranchised! Hail to SPPLU! (The Society for the Preservation of People Like Us!

Re: “The tragic but undeniable truth about Scott Weiland and Stone Temple Pilots

I wonder if you've researched STP's sales Certifications already, Chris Haire. Have you?
Do you even know anything about vocal pitch and/or vocal range? ...Weiland had superiority in both compared to this counterparts.
About Nirvana, the only thing they have anything remotely close to Grunge was their debut album. Everything after that sounded LIKE alternative rock. The difference here is that I'm not shunning Nirvana, I like them.

Also, lots of the material STP wrote, were made as early as 1989. Some were songs FOR Soundgarden, lol. You can find many of these tunes live in Mighty Joe Young live shows before PJ had a jab at anything, lol.

Your article is absolutely nothing but opinions, not "facts", lol. Clueless options at best...

Haire ye haire ye......the difference between you and Weiland is that Weiland could actually write, had talent and was successful with his career. It is a shame he lost control and the poison won though. RIP Scott

Re: “Charleston County enjoys the lowest unemployment rate in the Palmetto State

Neo, you seem to think that taxes only affect poor people who receive welfare. We all benefit from taxes, whether it's roads, infrastructure police force, education, etc. Is there waste and abuse? Absolutely. Anyone who has worked with government or defense contracts surely knows that. That doesn't mean taxes are inherently bad. You have benefited from other's hard work and contributions, so others shall benefit from yours.

Not to mention that South Carolina receives about $7 federal dollars for every dollar that it contributes. That largesse cannot be ignored.

Re: “Panhandling Whack-A-Mole

Neo Marcist, are you the only arbiter of who receives government assistance? Your CHOICE is immaterial because we, as a society, have decided that there should be a social safety net. Just because someone receives assistance today doesn't mean they will next month. Many people who benefit from the system end up being productive and pay down to the road, just like you and I.

I would love to know your opinion of recipients of corporate welfare. Undoubtedly you don't have a choice of which businesses receive tax credits and other benefits, so why stop your criticism at citizens?

Lynnar- I know it's hard to believe that Bright said all these extreme things in less than a decade as a public official, but it's true.

You don't even have to "Google it," like you say. Just click the links.

Re: “Homophobic, anti-abortion secessionist and defeated S.C. senator senses that the time is right to return to politics

One more thing. Homophobic? Give that a rest too. That excuse is getting boring. Who gives a hooey. There are so many gays in SC. The restroom issue is another story. That was ridiculous. If a transvestite or transexual wants to use the womans bathroom, thats fine with me. What I dont know, doesnt bother me. But you keep men and womens bathrooms separate.

Science, I hate to tell you has proven we have two sexs. Period! All you liberals fight with conservatives about global warming and climate change and say scientifically it has to do with SCIENCE! Well, goes both ways. Bio science proves that we have male and females. Deal with it. This transgender word is ridiculous. If you think you are a man or woman! Hey, I get it. However, I am not paying for the sex change with my tax dollars. Or for a convict in prison . The individual can transition when they are 18. All power to them. And I dont get when they dont. Either you are a man or a woman.

But get it out of your warped minds that just because someone votes republican, that they are anti gay, and are racist. Hogwash. And they are anti women.

I have news for you. Blacks are extremely anti Semitic. Google it. And more hate crimes are committed on Jews than blacks.

Why dont I see articles written about that!?

Re: “Homophobic, anti-abortion secessionist and defeated S.C. senator senses that the time is right to return to politics

Oh brother. What is it with you Southerners? Why is everything so black and white with you? No pun intended. Cant there be shades of grey? Cant there be common sense. Just because someone doesnt agree with democrats and visa versa, I dont see why people cant compromise. Personally, the democrats have gone coo coo. But I also dont believe in going far right. But, the far left like to embellish anyone with more conservative views that they want to go back to the good ol days of slavery? Are you really serious? Shameful protests against gun violence? Are you kidding me? When more footage has just come out and the deputy was right out side hearing the bullets and screams AND DID NOTHING AND LEFT IN A GOLF CART. Its written in their laws that he was supposed to go in and save those children?

Im for protests alright. Protests for law enforcement to protect my children! I would be suing the hell out of the police department for not doing their job. For not taking action 38 times when this kid told them he was going to shoot the school. I would be protesting the FBI for their incompetence!

But protesting for less guns? Ha. And thinking a republican wants slavery. How stupid.

Its not guns that are the problem. Its the people who get hold of them. And the people who dont do their jobs correctly. You would hv thought after Sandy Hook that every school ( I dont care how big) should be locked from the inside! Insane people know schools are easy prey because there is no security. Put an ex Marine in every school and I bet you will never have a school shooting again. Israel had school shootings all the time, until they had teachers carry guns. They have not had one school shooting in years. Taking away guns is not the answer. Anyone with half a brain knows that. And these kids have not formed theirs yet, otherwise you would give them the right to vote at 13.

Both parties I feel are corrupt. Even down to our local level. What happened to the expansion of 526? What happened to that penny tax and no one knows where that money went? Hmmm. I want to know why here in Charleston and Johns Island everywhere you look they are building apartments or subdivisions after another, yet no new roads.

I want to know why SC ranks 49 in education in the country. Instead of complaining about someone who u think is pro slavery, which, honestly is delusional, and was against the protesting of these kids leaving the classrooms because they want guns taken away from people. How about being more concerned about the real issues SC faces.

When I read articles like this, I tell my friends up in NYC, this is why you lost the War. They thought process down here continues to boggle my mind. My Yellow Lab, Atticus, could run things better down here.
