Sanford was cool. Everyone needs someone to blame for their own failures it seems

I dont think Trump has anything to do with Arlington. Arrington has home grown Columbia SC written all over her. I'm not a fan of the pro war hawk politicians from Columbia either. They are worse than the politicians in DC

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

Tom Martin:IMO Trump trumped you and other 'christians' into voting for him. I hope you and the others can sleep at night with this immoral person in the White House.

Re: “How do Christians justify Trumpian politics?

Actually, many Christians have become convinced that abortion is a sin, and many consider this doctrine to be so important, that they want to impose it on the rest of us. Regardless of the fact that the Bible never calls it a sin, except for one passage in the Law of Moses, where abortion against the wish of the woman is called a sin. Of course that is a different issue. That is illegal here in the US too.
So anyway, Trump promised to nominate lots of very conservative judges, who would be for banning abortion based on the wishes of the woman, and even Supreme Court justices who would feel the same. That is why many Christians voted for him. Some feel Trump was sent by God to make sure that Roe v. Wade is repealed.

I will never ever understand how people who claim to be 'christians' could have voted for this evil current 'president."

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

I have been a member of Cedar Creek Resort for 14+ years....through at least 3 changes in ownership. We thoroughly enjoyed having you visit with us and are so glad you had a good experience. The current owners are more than welcoming as have been previous owners. Throughout my time here as a member, the most consistent thing has been the members. Everyone is always welcoming, friendly and willing to help new comers adjust to the lifestyle. At Cedar Creek, there is always something to do...from reading or relaxing by the pools, playing water or sand volleyball, walking the trails, playing darts or billiards, playing petanque, floating the Creek, to dancing the night away! We invite anyone to come and try out the nudist experience. Even if it isn't for you, you will meet some of the friendliest and nicest people in the world!

Re: “S.C. House races need to be more competitive

You are absolutely correct that politics should be taken out of legislative reapportionment decisions. This state needs new state-wide government leadership to improve its abysmal record in education, health care and other quality of life indicators. With non-competitive races, there is no urgency or motivation to change course.

Re: “Words matter more, party matters less, and other observations from the 2018 Charleston midterm elections

Sense A, Asians such as Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, and Vietnamese, and whites who originated in Europe, have considerably higher average IQ scores than blacks, Hispanics, American Indians, Asians from minority tribes, or whites who are Arabs or Afghanis. This is not due to genetic reasons. Note that some East Asians have high average IQ scores, and some, from East Asian tribes, like in China, Vietnam, Thailand, have low average IQ scores, even though they are basically racially identical to the Chinese, Japanese, Koreans, Vietnamese and Thais. Note that some whites have high average IQ scores, compared to Arab or Afghani whites. They are all racially white. So it is not a matter of genetics, but things like poverty, culture (like do the parents of the kids have plenty of books in their home, or maybe none or one book), quality of education, amount of crime in their neighborhood (which can cause some kids post-traumatic stress disorder), whether the parents put a lot of value on education, push their kids to study hard, help the kids with the homework, do the kids see their parents read a lot. All these things affect kids' IQ level and educational success.

Re: “Naked and Unafraid

The info from cheridonna@prodigy.net Cheri is NOT! The new owners are a wonderful couple and they have WORKED very hard to make Cedar Creek a better resort. They have an event every weekend (with Karaoke Friday and DJ music to dance Saturday) in the Clubhouse. There is a grill for short order lunches and Breakfast during the weekends. And not only is there outdoor pool and hot tub, but an INDOOR POOL and HOT TUB (both are in ground pools and hot tubs). And if you want to spend the nights, there the cabin, 3 RV's and 5 Huts! Also, there are showers and men and women bathrooms in the Clubhouse, and 2 other Bathhouses. We have been members at Cedar Creek for almost 9 years and had previous 2 owners. BUT M&M are the best. Even after my heart surgery, they both have contact me at least once or twice a week to see how I am doing. So if you any question about Cedar Creek, email me (gbobbymac@aol.com), Cedar Creek Facebook, or better yet, SOME SEE US and I will be glad to help you around the grounds, introduce the new owners and other of our FAMILY AND FRIEND at THE CREEK!

"Make America Civil Again!" - Tom Walker

Tell that to your DemoKrat leaders and your DemoKrat DNC PR operatives (corporate conglomerate fake news media cartel).

"You cannot be civil...Thats why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, thats when civility can start again." - Hillary Clinton

In other words, DemoKKKrats only want to be civil if they have POWER. If they don't have POWER, then they don't believe in civility. They want POWER more than they want civility.

Re: “Words matter more, party matters less, and other observations from the 2018 Charleston midterm elections

1. You do not support our military when you refuse to stand for the National Anthem or respect the flag. The National Anthem is a time to reflect on and appreciate their sacrifices. Using the National Anthem as a selfish time for you to protest some grievance based on false information is not patriotic or respectful of our military.

2. Conservatives do support Immigration. We do not support criminal violation of our immigration laws by illegal alien invaders who do not respect our laws or sovereignty. Your inability to distinguish the two disqualifies you from the discussion. Learn the terminology and, if you do not believe in the rule of law, then just admit you are a lawless anarchist with no regard for immigration law.

3. There's no such thing as "common sense gun laws." Infringing on citizens' second amendment rights endangers them. That is clearly evidenced by the fact that every single mass shooting occurs in your make believe "gun free zone" where you disarmed free citizens with what you thought were "common sense" rules justifying their disarmament. I can put "common sense" in front of anything I believe in and market it that way if you think people are gullible enough to be tricked by such a cheap gimmick. How about President Trump's "common sense wall" enforcing "common sense immigration laws" or us making "common sense welfare cuts" or imposing "common sense gender identity laws" based on human anatomical science instead of your volatile emotional feelings and mental illnesses?

4. Healthcare insurance is available on the private market for anyone who wants to purchase a policy. The Federal Government's enumerated powers does not grant it the power to shop around for private insurance policies for us or provide insurance policies to American citizens. Federal Government is terrible at managing insurance. There's an astounding amount of evidence of that. Why do you want Government to do something the Constitution does not give it the power to do and which it is bad at doing? And since when has government ever done anything in a "fiscally responsible manner" ? Come on Jason. Even you don't believe yourself.

5. Publicly funded programs have a place in our NOT FOR PROFIT sector. Not in government. You want to publicly fund something? Do it by people freely donating to the cause. Using coercive, authoritarian power to confiscate private earnings and private wealth to put towards a program half the country doesn't want is not moral. If you believe in some kind of social cause or philanthropic cause, then convince people to freely donate and contribute. If not, then you're the "fascist," not me.

6. "Many candidates not only had to articulate a vision" Really? What vision is that? The only vision I heard from DemoKrats is anti-Trump. Offshore drilling is not an issue. There is no discovered oil reservoirs off the coast of South Carolina. Don Quixote fighting make believe windmills is not a real political platform. For now on, call Cunningham Don Quixote, or Nancy Pelosi's puppetboy since a large swatch of his campaign money came from her. I'll call it now. He'll vote in accordance with Nancy Pelosi over 90% of the time. She owns him.

7. IQ is mostly genetic. Many studies conclude IQ to be roughly 80% genetic and 20% environmental. You'll never get equal outcomes in education. Asians and Jews have far higher average IQ's than Hispanics or blacks. You'll always have outliers and exceptions. Of course it is racist to use an average statistic to make an assumption about any unique individual. But trying to get averages to balance out is a fool's errand. Multiple studies show that rich black kids still scored lower on standardized tests than poor white kids. That's just scientific results and facts. So wealth doesn't sway the results either. Good luck getting a black child growing up in a single parent household raised by dumb four bar looped rap music to compete with a genetically higher IQ Asian child with two married parents who play sophisticated classical music in the car. Likewise, good luck with getting a genetically smaller framed and shorter Asian to compete with genetically taller and stronger black kids in a basketball game. Of course there are exceptions, but scientists look at bell curves in their studies. As long as social injustice DemoKrats continue to deny science, they'll keep chasing their tails while the best students in our schools get ignored because you're too busy trying to chase the impossible and fallacious goal of equal outcome, instead diverting resources and focus on the least performing students. Who gets more attention in one of our garbage government schools? The misbehaving deliquent or the very smart intellectual and well behaved straight A student? DemoKrats ignore the great kid and establish multiple redundant programs and commit resources to the kid (and parents) with no genuine interest in learning.

8. Likewise, DemoKrats consistently believe that they should confiscate resources from the most productive citizens in society and redistribute those resources to the least productive citizens in society. They also believe in rewarding bad behavior. Have a child out of wedlock? Here's free housing and free food stamps and free utilities and free transportation and free college. Waiting until you were married to have children? Here's nothing. Here's a higher tax rate. You like to gamble and use drugs? Here's welfare. We'll enable your bad behavior. You're a good person who saves money and doesn't gamble and doesn't use drugs? Here's nothing.

9. There's more poor white people in American than poor people of any other color. But DemoKrats consistently diminish white people's accomplishments by peddling racist phrases like "white privilege." So much of the rhetoric out of the DemoKrat party is anti-white racist hatred and jealousy. Just come clean and admit you hate white people. Because words and tone matter and honesty matters too. Stop dog whistling to each other. Yet DemoKrats don't dog whistle. DemoKrats such as Sarah Jeong and Don Lemon and Oprah are overtly racist against white people. "Old white men just need to die" - Oprah, followed by DemoKrats wanting her to run for president. The DemoKrat Party has went from being the party of the KKK to the hate whitey party. However, if you consider that they build most of their abortion clinics in black communities and destroyed the black family and entrapped blacks in multi-generational poverty since their phony "war on poverty" programs were implemented to target blacks, then they don't have much love for the black Americans either. The DemoKrat party's clandestine attack on the black community has successfully turned them into a monolithic voting block that votes DemoKrat over 90% of the time despite the objective, empirical data derived negative results for the black community.

10. Look at who votes DemoKrat according to the exit polls: The very poor and the very rich. The DemoKrat assaults the middle class and therefore the middle class votes Republican. The exit polls suggest that the DemoKrats cater to the idea of a two class system of very poor and very rich - just like Communist nations in which you have a very poor proletariat working or unemployed class (Low income Democrat voters who want welfare) and the very rich elitist white DemoKrat politician and robber baron class bourgeoisie (Your Nancy Pelosis and Chuck Schumers and Jeff Bezos and Tim Cooks). If you are over 30 years old, married, or your household makes between $50,000 to $250,000, then you are more and more likely to vote Republican. If you make less than $50,000, are a young idealist, or you are ultra rich and can buy off DemoKrat politicians, then you are more likely to vote DemoKrat. For the rich this is often to put up barriers to entry and maintain what, for you, has been a successful status quo. This is why Hillary Clinton was supported by Big Oil, Big Pharm, Big Banks. Not Trump. DemoKrats are the party of the very rich and very poor, despite false narratives otherwise. Under DemoKrat politics, the middle class is raped. If you need empirical evidence of this, I can post more comments and link sources.

Re: “Manager who called the cops on anti-violence demonstrators "will not be returning" to North Charleston store

Send a group of 30-40 individuals to Barack Obama's property and see what happens. Push buttons such as his doorbell and loiter and ask to use the bathroom facilities on his property. See how you are treated by the Great Messiah and his secret service.

Even better, send your mob to the Charleston City Paper. Let them hang out there, push buttons, and use the bathroom facilities. Pull fire alarms to signal emergency alarms. They'll be tolerant. Won't you guys? I mean...You wouldn't be hypocrites? Nahhhhhh
