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

Us deplorables had enough with the Washington elitists running our country. The Clintons, the Bushs, the Obamas, the Kennedys. We watched as they took away our freedoms, raised our taxes, and turned our nation into a 3rd world cesspool. With Trump, we took back control.

The Liberal elite do nothing but bleed the middle class dry. My tax rate is 40% and my healthcare is now $700 per month thanks to Obamacare. My car insurance is still just $25/month (thanks to Insurance Panda), but if you look at Democrat strongholds like Detroit and New Orleans, where car insurance will run you $300+ per month, its easy to be pessimistic about the future of the United Socialist States of America.

It's been a long time since we had a President who cared about us. Save our country, President Trump! God bless America!

Re: “Mark Sanford rode a tiny motorcycle while forcing BuzzFeed reporters on a tour of his plantation

Not sure why his sharing so much bothered her. Or why his talking to everyone was a bad thing. And her tattoo under a Hanes men's tee was lame. Her tone, her attitude, her attire, her opinion...just fell flat. And I am a fan of Buzzfeed and a hard core liberal.

The wrong people were sent for this report. They failed.

Re: “Mark Sanford rode a tiny motorcycle while forcing BuzzFeed reporters on a tour of his plantation

Whine much Ms. Reporter? My goodness. And could she attempt to hide her contempt for the former Governor? Apparently not. Real professional.

And who can't ride a 4-wheeler!? Surely he knows what breaks are, right? And this guy was driving the car? Good grief!

This entire "interview" is amateur hour. Is BuzzFeed even a real news source?

Re: “Mark Sanford rode a tiny motorcycle while forcing BuzzFeed reporters on a tour of his plantation

I can't believe I'm saying his, but for the first time ever I'm behind Mark Sanford on an issue. If the idiots at Buzzfeed thought they were going to get another kind of experience in spending the day with him, they apparently didn't do their homework. I've never seen an incident like this before where Sanford actually seemed of superior intellect and character than his interviewers. I guess that's a result of an age where rank amateurs only need a camera and a microphone and can claim credibility on the internet. If you can come off looking like you were sucker-punched by Sanford you need to find a job you're capable of. Good on ya, Mark.

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

The Mayor's proposals indicate the sincerity of his belief in climate change and the potential harm to the port city if no precaution is taken to avoid it.
I commend him in his foresight, but it is an unreasonable stretch to connect these actions to the Paris Agreement. True, both rest on the belief that global warming is real and that man can alter or mitigate it, but beyond this, there is no action that any mayor can take that specifically parallels the requirements of the Agreement. It is inconceivable that any American city can or will take on the substantial financial burden that the Agreement demands on its members.
The only connection of the two is spiritual.

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.
