Re: “Secessionists paint Confederate flags over 'Hope Equality Love' message on Folly Boat, but not for long

Hope, love, and equality are not secessionist values.

Re: “Tim Scott outlines his four-step process for connecting with others

Seriously?!?!?! Did you attend his town halls?!?!?! Not only did he pick and choose from a bowl of written questions, he laughed, yes he LAUGHED, at the concerns voiced by constituents. He is a rude, arrogant ass.

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

Really? This burned your breakfast, Tiger fans? Most people in the country probably couldn't tell you where Clemson is and their only familiarity with the school is because of sports. Our snake-oil salesman president may make everything seem ridiculous with his delivery, but... take a deep breath... he praised Clemson as a great school.

The president praised Clemson grads' alma mater as a great school. HORRORS.

Re: “Tim Scott outlines his four-step process for connecting with others

That's totally bogus. He does nothing of the sort. He even bagged out if his own town hall and refuses to engage in any meaningful dialogue that opposes Trump and the Republican agreement to obstruct, destroy and deny. He has sold out all of his constituents. He will NOT be reelected! I thought the City Paper was better than this. When is your next PR piece for Scott to appear?

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

You know what? F*** Donald Trump for saying whatever it was he said about Clemson! For that matter, F*** Donald Trump for saying anything, ever!

If Donald Trump said that grass is green or skies are blue I would say F*** Donald Trump for saying the sky is blue or the grass is green!

On the other hand, who knew Clemson was a great academic school? Not me!

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

That was the "burn" of every Clemson grad? The president saying many don't know Clemson is a great academic school? That was the subject of an entire article? Seriously?

The fact is most do not know it's a great academic school. Most recognize the university because if its iconic athletic logo, the tiger paw. But yes it is also a great academic institution. It's the highest rated public academic university in our state.

But I don't understand why pointing out that fact is supposed to be an insult to those of us who graduated from Clemson. I guess the author was just looking for a reason, any reason to bash Clemson and/or the president. I'll take the "burn" of the president calling my alma mater a great academic school over the author's pride of claiming this silly little journalistic jewel as one of his own.

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

Trump can be mindless at times with a serious case of speak (or tweet) before you think syndrome, which is not helpful. I guess this mindlessness leads some of his supporters to become persecuted snowflakes here of late. After 8 years of bashing, racial epithets and cartoons against President Obama's ethnicity, I would think they'd have tougher skins, but alas, no. Trumple-thin-skins, to be sure, need to get their "tiny" hands dirty and calloused. And Clemson, while a team to be proud of, kowtows to the most disrespectful entity to walk the earth - I'm surprised that trump's knuckles don't drag the ground.

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

Just curious, if he didn't say that then what else would you have written against him? You obviously have to try to tear down the POTUS like a true Lefty, so if it wasn't this statement, what was the next thing? Something else he said? The way he tied his tie? Buttoned his jacket? Walked to the podium? Smiled or didn't smile? Shook hands? What? Couldn't just leave it as the honor to the team that it was? Unbelievable.

Re: “The Agenda: Police seizure laws scrutinized; Mixson apartments to reopen; S.C. falls off Fortune 500 list

If the VC Sumner plant is not completed, that's over $8 billion gone with nothing to show for it. Also, increasing population means increased electrical base load, which will mean more natural gas plants will have to be built at additional cost.
No matter how much solar or wind power is added to our system, we will still need base load plants for when the sun isn't shining, which happens every night; and when the wind isn't blowing.
Personally, I would prefer that these nukes be finished rather than adding more fossil fuel plants, even though they would be natural gas rather than coal. (sorry Donald)

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford doesn't buy 'He's new' defense of Trump; Revisiting Townville; SCE&G solar program

Dorrie, Under trump, your tax rate (somehow I doubt 40% after filing) will stay the same or increase, while the corporate elitists that trump looks out for, himself included, will become exponentially richer. Watching FNC all the time, makes one ignorant to reality.

Re: “Restoration effort reveals new look inside the Hunley, but mysteries still remain

Joseph, I agree with you that drowning is unlikely. But I also agree that it is unlikely that asphyxiation caused the sinking. I suggest another possibility. I believe the crewmembers, and especially Dixon, were incapacitated by the effects of the explosion. This resulted in an out of control backward descent and impact with the bottom in about 10 minutes. The extreme noise produced by the explosion might alone have been enough to disorient or debilitate the crew until hypercapnia or hypoxia took hold. Eventually, the crew did die from lack of breathable air, but that is not what led to the sinking of the Hunley. And I am aware that the U S Navy's Carderock Division does not totally support my position, but they fail to provide a convincing alternative.

Dorrie, Trump is the ultimate elitist. He is rich and he cares only about the rich.

Re: “S.C. congressman driven out by tea party says he voted to impeach Clinton for less serious issues than those facing Trump

Inglis was quite conservative in the House, though not on all issues. It is sad that conservatives are so intolerant of those who listen to science on global warming, that they gave so much money to Gowdy as to make sure Inglis is defeated in the primary. In many Republican districts you have to agree with the conservative consensus on all issues, to be elected, rather than think for yourself. So the ultraconservatives now dominate the Republican party, both in Congress as well as in local offices, there is little room for moderates any more.

Re: “The Agenda: 7 years since Alvin Greene; Duncan deletes Facebook post; More flooding days in Chs.

Yes, global warming has advanced, so there is more tidal flooding in Charleston. And yet Trump does not want to fight the global warming.

Bob Inglis has been a Never Trumper since early 2016. Desperate attention seeker. Pathetic.

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

Good for you John Tecklenberg ! Your voice is badly needed . Thank you for pointing out the physical reality of changes in our environment and specifically, the City of Charleston.

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

He is acknowledging the physical changes that are happening on a global level and to deny this fact is absurd . Of course there is a connection to the agreement . The dollar amounts of money that are being spent by our government is tremendous and that money needs to have a roadmap attached to it . Trump missed the point entirely and needs to qualify his position as the American people do not support this action . We all need to speak up now !!!!

Re: “Restoration effort reveals new look inside the Hunley, but mysteries still remain

The crew obviously died from lack of breathable air....drowning men would not have been found at their stations, they would have been crowded around the hatch trying to get out!....I don't think that people who are drowning calmly sit and wait for the water to cover them...these are the only 2 options, eliminate one and that leaves the other...."Considering that the crewmembers were found seated at their original stations within the submarine, these experts suggest that it is unlikely that asphyxiation was what led to the sinking of the Hunley."...I'd say that drowning is unlikely.
