Re: “Polls are open until 7 p.m. for Council District 6 and District 10 runoff elections

I thought Gregorie's campaign ad was weak. Something about since he is already in office, why start over. That's all it said

Re: “Is S.C. next? Steve Bannon is trying to sway GOP primaries across the country

Cannot wait to vote for Catherine Templeton!

There are worse criminals operating under the state capitol dome in Columbia, SC than some of those currently enjoying lifetime careers of graft and corruption under the capitol dome in the District of Columbia - Washington, DC. Some would even make the narco regimes in Colombia, South America look legitimate by comparison.

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

In quoting Fred without following up with us about how we do actually feel it implies his statement is true and we are worried about our future.

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

That's the 2nd time in 2 years City Paper has implied EBTV is closing or in trouble. As a regular customer myself, I was just told last week that 2017 has seen their best profits ever.

C'mon, CP- I love this publication, but how about a more balanced article, or maybe showing one of the last remaining services/core businesses on the peninsula some love?

Re: “Is S.C. next? Steve Bannon is trying to sway GOP primaries across the country

We need to reform the Republican party. It's outrageous how some senators/politicians in the party are attacking Roy Moore.
They might as well register as Democrats.

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

East Bay True Value, Adam reported the facts of what was said at the meeting. He did not imply that the feelings of Fred Turco were your own, he merely quoted what Turco said.

Re: “Charleston City Council again considers reining in Planning Commission’s power

Okay , so these people are in appointed positions , they are picked by who? Council members and the Mayor. Even Stevie Wonder can see this is not right! So these public elected city officials are saying its the commission fault. So why is this commission still operating. All the city incumbents made this poor decision and thats why we are putting them in the street!!!

A customer is not a reliable credible source as to our intentions or survival. Maybe ask the business owner?

Re: “Sullivan's Island woman who interrupted Bannon speech cited for disorderly conduct

It was a private event, that when you paid for the ticket you agreed to the terms and services and rules for attending the event, you break the rules you get kicked out. If you wanted to demonstrate you right to free speech there was an area outside you could have done that in. You don't go to a concert walk up on stage and start yelling at the performers do you? because if you did that you would be taken away by security same with what happened here. She also was illegally parked but none of the other new organizations bothered to report that fact. Shes luck disorderly conduct was the only thing they are slapping her with.

Re: “King Street lunch counter sit-in plaque replaced after two years

I think they should have put the plaque back in its original spot. Not noticeable now and attached flush to a clothing store

Re: “King Street lunch counter sit-in plaque replaced after two years

There is something terribly wrong or perhaps just ironically tragic that this brave event is memorialized by a plaque attached to the wall of a company that for years has been vilified for its' human rights violations, including using child labor, thousands of workers killed in their shoddy factories...and chiefly their inclusion (along w/Walmart, Nike, Starbucks & Nestle) of the top companies in the world who use slave labor.
Do you shop at H&M?

Re: “The Agenda: Templeton not disavowing Roy Moore; GOP primary to replace Merrill

Another reason to vote for McMaster in the primary. Templeton is just too far out. If she wins the primary, we will have an extremist for a governor. I see no way that a Democrat can win the race for governor in this state. Most whites in this state are ultraconservative.

Re: “The Agenda: Templeton not disavowing Roy Moore; GOP primary to replace Merrill

Yeah, we have enough to deal with than to get involved with pederastic Senatorial prospects. As long as we can get the republican agenda of "make the white and wealthy, wealthier" thru, then little girls are just "collateral" damage? With no due respect, Ms. Templeton, you are part of the problem, not the solution. Do we need a woman who knows her place in a man's world to be governor? No we need a governor that is going to stand up for the poor and middle-class, not the rich and elite. As long as you hold on to the Greedy Old Party (greedy on money, greedy on power, greedy on rights) you are just another self-entitled prig.

Re: “Park and ride is headed our way, expansions already being planned

Park and ride is such a great idea to pursue for our tight peninsula...bicycle ferries and harbor taxis are pretty neat, too.

Re: “Citadel to host panel discussion on the causes of "intolerance and hateful speech"

Beautiful irony! Citadel to host panel discussion on the causes of "intolerance and hateful speech"
The original purpose at the time of the founding of the Citadel was to train a militia to put down future slave insurrections.

Re: “Gov. candidate Catherine Templeton calls Steve Bannon "the voice of the rest of us" ahead of his Citadel speaking gig

In light of Roy Moore's alleged pederasty, "MAGA" also serves as an acronym for "Molesting Adolescent Girls Again", apparently. And so far, 53 Christian pastors(?) are behind him for standing up for biblical principles (of perversion, it appears). Yikes!

Re: “VIDEO: Watch Steve Bannon's full Nov. 10 speech at the Citadel

Not many of us "white" guys support this blatant racist. Those "white" guys are a vocal minority of bullies, bigots and racists, even if they don't admit it - deep down, "they" are.
