Re: “The Agenda: SCANA could get $2 billion tax break for walking away; Many favor assault-style gun ban

" Gun control only works on people who FOLLOW THE LAWS!"

So you're saying that the only people who commit crimes are criminals? Bold concept.

And laws only work if they are properly enforced. The Air Force really dropped the ball here.

A good thing for the survivors of the Sutherland Springs shooting that a similar ban was not in place in that community. Gun control only works on people who FOLLOW THE LAWS!

Re: “Activists plan protest outside upcoming Citadel-hosted Bannon speech

Nice job on the divisive, inflammatory wording of the flier. Way to spread the "love".

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

Steve Bannon is dismissing Roy Moore's alleged pederasty as a non-issue created by the "democratic apparatus", whatever that is. No, Roy Moore created the issue when he fondled and p***y-grabbed a 14 year old (also a 17 and 18 y.o.), who by definition, lacks the legal maturity to consent to such grabbing. Gee, Ms. Templeton, would you like him to turn his amore' toward you or, do you object to his misogyny and alleged criminal pederasty and Bannon's dismissal of it? Or, maybe you just know the woman's place in a man's society and you are just folding to their "power".

Re: “State Rep. Gilliard set to meet with Citadel president over Bannon appearance

Anyone who wants someone d3ad just because they are African-American, Jewish or LGBTQ fails to have a valid moral opinion. I have zero tolerance only to those who have zero tolerance of African-Americans, Jews or LGBTQs. They don't deserve to breathe the same air. You simply cannot defend the indefensible unless you're one of them. Re: https://youtu.be/P54sP0Nlngg

Re: “Disagreements continue over how to best regulate and police short-term rentals

HA - a bunch of white people worried that Charleston neighborhoods will be "hollowed out". We just can't seem to stop telling everyone else where they can't be.

Re: “Disagreements continue over how to best regulate and police short-term rentals

I is my understanding that up until 2012 Short Term Rentals were permitted. I don't see were during the years previous to that there were issues that seem to be of concern today. I think that short term rentals should be registered, taxed, and follow a common rule set like any other business. I also don't understand why the focus on B&B's they are few compared to the other rentals out there. The last item is enforcement, it will be easy if it is legal, don't know how it will get done if it is not.

Tupper29406,
she is exactly correct in the quote you attribute to her. Do you think the majority of heterosexuals don't find homosexuality despicable and disgusting, yet we tolerate them because it's the polite thing. Your sexual preference, though legal, is still found to be disgusting by many who tolerate it.

Re: “Charities chosen for anti-Bannon "Charleston Parks the Hate" protest

Charities? From NYC. Something does not smell kosher. Is this the Old ACORN? Funded by George Soros. And now Obama. I have done a lot of reading and there are now 30,000 volunteers. And lots of money. Those ANTFIA riots were well planned and those people were well paid. I hope there will be a lot of security at The Citadel.

Re: “Truck traffic will be re-directed for "at least 90 days" on Wando River Bridge

Unless they monitor and patrol this area, the truckers will wait until just before they touch the bridge in order to move to the right. Traffic will back up all the way to Montague, and further, or all the way to Daniel Island. It is already a nightmare, and this will only increase your wait time. Have fun getting home to Mt. P. for the next few months.

@Scott. Unfortunately, whitey senators don't have to. They have the "Good Ole Boy" (white privelege) system protecting them.

Re: “Activists plan protest outside upcoming Citadel-hosted Bannon speech

What a great community. Bannon gets to use his 1st amendment to spew hatred and continue to divide our nation while many, many others gather to use their 1st amendment right to speak of love and inclusiveness. Looks like a win-win to me.

Re: “Activists plan protest outside upcoming Citadel-hosted Bannon speech

"People United To Take Back Our Community" Really? I fully expect this to be a native tribe then. Somehow, I doubt that. Keep letting the people know what kind of scum and true hatred are out there while you are shutting down free speech.
