Re: “Charleston-area YouTube star Angry Grandpa has died

I am one of Grandpa's young'uns and he was an amazing man. I will miss him dearly and as for one of his requests in Michael Green's vlog, i will keep on with the casual duties in life, it is going to be hard, but I will miss him and think about him every single day for as long as I live. A part of him will always be with me in my heart. i love you Grandpa and I will never forget you. :( -THE_ATLUS

Oh my god Southerners. What the fuck. Say what you will about Ohio (and I do too), but at least they don't freak out and shut down everything infrastructure related and panic in traffic when the temperature drops below 50 degrees. Get a goddamn grip.

Re: “The Agenda: Growth with some pain points; Confidential nuclear report; Metal detectors in public schools?

If you cannot find housing near your job, then how about find a job near your housing? Or ride one of those empty CARTA buses that local taxpayers pay tens of millions of dollars to fund despite no one riding them.

I approve of Trump's disallowance for deductibles for local and state taxes. Just because citizens vote to raise their own local and state taxes doesn't mean that they should be allowed to pay a lesser amount to the Federal government. The moral of the story is to stop voting for local and state tax increases and not to feel entitled to paying less than your "fair share" to the Federal government just because you voted to increase the share you pay to your local and state governments.

Rep. Wendell Gilliard should consider that "gun free zones" are the most dangerous places in the United States. Most of the mass shootings in the last 20 years in the United States have occurred in pseudo-safe "gun free zones." I'd feel much safer in a school where the teachers all had pistols on their hips. It amazes me that the "sitting duck" method is still promoted. But to be fair and perhaps lend credence to his cause, there does seem to be some statistical evidence that metal detectors have worked in some high-risk school districts. NYPD crime statistics make a good case for this.

At least Slager will be doing 20 years prison time. That's more than we can say for the illegal alien murderer of Kathryn Steinle who Democrats let go, or the celebrated murderer of Nicole Brown who Democrats let go, or for officer Philip Mitchell Brailsford who gunned down Daniel Shaver who was inexcusably acquitted.

Re: “Former North Charleston officer Michael Slager sentenced to 20 years in Walter Scott shooting death

If one plays attetion to the video u will see they were fighting over the t gun. Its sad Mr. Scott passed away, however, he was breaking the law in several areas. Drugs, Behind in child support, warrant for that, plus you don't fight an officer, you don't run from an officer and you stop when ordered too. You must obey the law. He knew he was doing wrong hence why he fought and ran to start with. He knew he was breaking the law. The officer could have shot him in the legs to stop him yes but they are trained shoot to kill aren't they? Prayers for both families. Who is to say Mr. Scott would. have lived 20 more years with the path he was going? You don't obey a direct order there are consequences. Prayers for both prayers

Re: “History Commission approves toned-down version of Calhoun plaque

I blame CITY PAPER FOR MAKING THIS HAPPEN WHEN BEFORE NOBODY CARED.

I deem CITY PAPER a threat to our community as it gives an illusion of a "free press" while being the exact opposite by following national news trends it tries to make local. Charleston City Paper is also a proliferator of pornographic filth and smut in order to make a dollar off of the full page strip club ads everyweek.

Maybe we should make a law that breaks up the monopoly your stupid paper has on our downtown area.. We should NATIONALIZE it back into a form of PBS since now it is controlled by corporate thieving banker mafia media moguls it is a danger to the human race. The owner of this paper would slice us all in half if it made them an extra nickle.

Why do we not have local public papers from government funding and donations similar to PBS? Because the pigs at SHITTY PAPER don't try to stir any media attention that way. They do it to make money off of you and to protect themselves from actually having to do good work as defenders of FREE SPEECH.

Maybe it is better to just outright admit that this paper is commercialized PROPOGANDA from our corporate masters only fit for STRIP CLUBS and SMUT SHOPS.

I guess that is what both the corporate owner of this paper and I share, that we both know that it is just a RACKET to make money.
Don't be a sucker. http://Rt.com

Re: “History Commission approves toned-down version of Calhoun plaque

I don't share his view. Do I get a cookie now? Lets talk about removing the pornographic strip club ads from the printed charleston city paper next.

I find it as offensive as mr weinstein, and your paper makes money from businesses SUBJUGATING WOMEN.
As well as restaurants that pay their employees 8 dollars an hour to wash dishes 40 hours a week.

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

Palestinians will have to wait even longer than the blacks so be sure to save them seats when you go see Iron man 5 with some popcorn.

There is one thing both Black and white people in this country share... bullshit problems fed to them from national controlled media monopolies.

Didn't trump just declare Jerusalem Israels capital?
I guess you guys at city paper missed that one.

Try to talk or stand against the killing and war for PROFITS (not Prophets) and they will crucify you. TRUE STORY

Doesn't matter your race.

Then CNN will say they had to crucify you out of patriotism, and the people will cheer

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

If a man voices his opinion it doesn't matter what race he is, because he is still just an asshole to everyone else.

Unless he has money to shove it down everyones throat like the corporate owners of SHITTY PAPER (city paper).

Black or white people don't have to wait! We can all stop reading shitty paper right now!

Hey how is this for RACIST STEREOTYPES?
City paper loves stereotypes writing their articles!

Do they assign you assholes these topics at corporate or what? AS in you get the black vengeance articles because your black, and the girls with daddy issues get the articles on Weinstein sex harrassment because they "have been hurt as well"

You people perpetuate racism and hatred simply because you have to follow the trends which are inherently DIVISIVE AND RACIST/SEXIST.

I guess it is fun to say Im a white man, and im not racist because that is all these comment sections ever reflect and Im growing amused with it.
Racism is just an excuse and EVERYONE KNOWS IT.
What you want our country to go kill millions of IRAQIS and then come back and give the black people 40 acres and a mule? Get serious

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

"Its fascinating to think of all the ways that God testifies about His Son. Nearly 400 years before the birth of Jesus, as you know, a man named Plato wrote a treatise on government called The Republic. In it, Plato wrote the following: If the perfectly just (i.e., righteous) man were to come into the worldHe will be scourged, racked, bound. He will have his eyes burned out. And at last, after suffering every kind of evil, he will be impaled. (Since crucifixion was already a standard form of execution in Platos time, some translators actually use the word crucified.)."

This story kind of reminds me of anyone who stands up for these universal truths we find self evident..

Re: “Former North Charleston officer Michael Slager sentenced to 20 years in Walter Scott shooting death

I wonder if he can get out of prison early, like some prisoners can, based on good behavior in prison. He sure deserves to spend the 20 years in prison for what he did, shooting at a man running away and killing him.

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

Randall Floyd once again unaware he is proving a point another person is trying to make.

We see these parallels in the business/media/political world all the time, and it definitely resonates closer to home as well.

A white man voices an opinion, he is a bold leader. A black man voices the same opinion, he is uppity. A white woman voices the same opinion, she is a bitch. A black woman voices - aw who am I kidding, our small minds can't handle that. A trans person voices - ah shit, nevermind, refer to black woman.

Re: “Why black people continue to have to wait their turn

This guy loves to divide people. What else would he write about if he didn't have examples from lawyers about racist actions taken by a car repair shop that he is purely speculating was making a black guy wait. He said that, even though he did not hold a conversation with the gentleman, he'd be willing to bet money that this Black, well dressed man had been waiting much longer than five minutes.

"The heavy gentrification talk of last decade's panel was mostly replaced with possible solutions on how to keep local business thriving."

Well no shit, look of whom the panel consisted. The gentrifiers have created their own problems and wonder why they can't achieve any real solutions.
