Re: “Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg joins city leaders in vow to uphold Paris climate agreement

So with Mayor Tecklenburg's vowing to adopt, honor, and uphold the commitments to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement" mean that our city taxes will be going up to satisfy the provision of the Agreement that "developed countries" (the USA) should pay $100 billion annually to countries affected by climate change"?

Re: “The Agenda: Columbia mayor pushes local support for Paris accord; ACLU sues another S.C. county over jails

What do you think Mayor Benjamin will do reduce the world's CO2? Bike to work, sell his car, not use airplanes?

The Paris agreement is about money, unless he has billions of dollars to give to Africa for clean energy production, he can't do anything but talk. Sorry to seem cynical but that's reality.

Excellent, Mayor Benjamin, and thank you for caring about our planet. I wish Mayor Techlenburg would do the same.

I think leaving a firearm in an unlocked vehicle should be illegal and the owner(s) should be charged for doing so. A child could get it!

While we should lock our doors, Blame the perpetrator not the innocent. In my opinion, this guy should never see the light of day again. I'll blame our system, once he's released to commit more crimes.

Re: “The Agenda: Chamber leader miffed by Trump-Germany comments; Cops now taught not to shoot into cars

Trump, BMW is a German company that manufacturers domestic product that also exports back to Germany. Unlike you and ALL of your manufacturing which occurs overseas and ALL of your domestically sold products are IMPORTED. What part of dumbass don't you understand? I just answered my own question - none, since he's a dumbass.

Re: “The Agenda: Chamber leader miffed by Trump-Germany comments; Cops now taught not to shoot into cars

childish name calling by the schoolyard bully. Europe should withdraw from Nato and setup something that excludes the Americans. Yankee go home is a good thing, the US can stop using Nato to fuel their war machine and weapons sales. Tax payers can get some relief. The US should look after the US and stop sticking their nose is everyone's business and making citizens pay for wars that only the Oligarch's benefit from. Us stupid citizens get stuck with the bill. Where is the moral hazard, when the rich guys stuff their pockets and then hand the bill to the poor guys to pay! Republican and such a menace to the world and the US. G.Bush just about finished the US, trump will complete the job.

Re: “The Agenda: CNN fires back at Duncan over retraction claim; McMaster praises Germans, Trump calls them "very bad"

Duncan, You should only lie when YOU are the only one who can ferret out the truth, which is NEVER. At this point, I believe if a rethug said the earth was spherical and rotates on an axis, while circling the sun; the earth would go flat, stop spinning and tumble into the sun while we all burned into a vapor.

Re: “The Agenda: S.C.'s radioactive landfill; New ethics probe bigger than 'Lost Trust'?; Moped rules sharpened

The Savannah River Site in Aiken, SC? You mean the one Barack Hussein Obama "scrapped"? Obama's best buddy, Vladimir Putin, backed out of a treaty with the U.S. to safely dispose of 34 metric tons of weapons grade plutonium (SOURCE http://www.mcclatchydc.com/news/nation-world/national/article105759761.html). This is after Obama did Putin a favor by backing out of the missile defense system in Eastern Europe which Putin opposed (OBAMA-RUSSIA COLLUSION!). Obama did Putin many favors, only the FAKE NEWS media never wanted to report it. The plant is Aiken, SC was abandoned by Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood counseled administration.

World Food Program? Listen, most of us are having a hard enough time putting food on the table for our own families. I mean, those of us who aren't stealing from taxpayers and having taxpayers pay for our own meals via the food stamp program which should be renamed the "rob peter to pay for paul's food program." If you are such a bleeding heart humanitarian, try reaching into your own pocket to provide food for the whole world. There's so many redundant food welfare programs (both private and public) it is hard to believe anyone is actually starving in America. In matter of fact, we have an obesity problem. Most of the people on food stamps are obese. What part of 'America First' do you not understand? Because Venezuelans voted in a Communist (Hugo Chavez) and there wasn't any incentive for anyone to go into business and open a bakery because, you know, "capitalism is evil," now it is my responsibility to feed all the commies in Venezuela because their government rationed bread lines stretch miles? Where's all the liberal democrat progressive neo-marxists who supported Hugo Chavez? Sean Penn, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Campbell, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, Courtney Love, Jesse Jackson, and the rest of the liberal losers?

And where in the Constitution does it say that it is the Federal Government's job to feed the rest of the world? Do you even know what the enumerated powers are? These are charity functions that government not only should NOT be doing, but isn't even GOOD at doing! Every welfare program government operates has a ridiculously high overhead. Only a small fraction of the money government spends on these welfare programs actually makes it to the people who need it! I urge you to start your own not-for-profit and engage in these philanthropies yourself if you believe so strongly in them! If only Democrats donated as much in charity as Republicans did...Or, here's an idea; donate to the Clinton Foundation since they're supposedly saving the world. You can contribute alongside the $143.5 million the Foundation received from investors in the Russian company Uranium One. Russia-Clinton Conspiracy!

Could you imagine if Trump had received $140+ million from Russian donors? All you have are allegations that someone in Russia might have paid a few thousand dollars for Flynn's travel costs. You alt-left snowflakes are hilariously hypocritical and conspiratorial.

And regarding mopeds, how long until you liberal democrat progressive neo-marxist fascists require us to register bicycles and scooters? Maybe I should register my push lawn mower too? More laws, more fees, more permits. "Gub'mint keeps me safe!" It's what you guys love. How many extra bureaucrats should we hire to administrate the new moped rules? Add 40% extra for the cost of their benefits. You guys claim to be against the "one percent" but continue to empower them and increase the debt you owe to them.

Re: “School superintendent faces backlash over teacher evaluations, blames staff miscommunication

Teachers should be evaluated. Test scores should not be the only evaluation but they should be a 50/50 part of it. Teachers are there to educate, so I think it's fair to have test scores as part of their evaluation.
