Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

But here I am with earnest discussion! I answered your personal attacks with a defense of why I wrote what I wrote only to be met with more ad hominem.

I guess you got me if you were just poking me from the get-go, but it doesn't make sense to do that and then feign good intentions if I don't respond how you want.

I used to criticize Chris Haire and we would have earnest discussion.
You,on the other hand, are as thin-skinned and reactive as the president, and from time-to-time it's just fun to poke you to see the reaction.

So then sometimes (by your standard) there are definitely times when they aren't coincidences.

And it's in the second sentence. Sorry to bust your bubble.

"Prof. Christine Blasey Ford said in the testimony she has not yet been allowed to offer."

Nice try --- the committee has bent over backwards to accommodate this lying woman !!

Re: “Will Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott come to conscience on Kavanaugh?

Pharisees were religious people too -- they also had a thing for crucifying people without proof of guilt.

Nice role models you got there, Jeremy!!!

At least y'all Democrats are trying to lynch a white guy for a change!

First, sometimes coincidences are just that - coincidences.
Second, you may bury the reference to Haley 2/3 of the way through the column and in the middle of a paragraph, but it still changes the tone of the column into an accusation.
This type of reporting would get you an "F" in a first-year journalism class and is more suited to the Enquirer or the Star.
Or is that the direction City Paper is turning to?

Re: “The curtains in Nikki Haley’s taxpayer-funded NYC penthouse cost more than most S.C. families make in a year

Crossposting from another story where this came up- The majority of this story is critical of the system that allowed all of this to happen. It's a system that predates Haley, Obama, Trump, all of them. Heck, the NYT story has a quote from a Kennedy lamenting that she only had ONE part-time maid! It's really something. And just so we're clear: The NYT did not retract the story. It's relevant to South Carolina because she's the former governor and is now the occupant of that office, so that's why this particular post focuses on her.

And I've never been called childish by an adult who uses the word butthurt, but thanks, Edward.

Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

Ima, Cid- First, I'm not trying to equate the two. Norman cracked a(nother) stupid joke about a woman and Parnell confessed to domestic abuse.

I just think it's a terrible coincidence that the two rich and powerful guys Democrats and Republicans have chosen to nominate find themselves on the same ballot and in this situation, creating a crappy choice for S.C. voters. (Or maybe it's not all that surprising...)

And on the Haley story, Ima- Since you read my post (thanks!), you'll remember that the majority of it was critical of the system that allowed all that to happen. It's a system that predates Haley, Obama, Trump, all of them. Heck, the NYT story had a quote from a Kennedy lamenting that she only had ONE part-time maid! It was really something. (I'll x-post this on that story too.)

Lump me in with the Democrats all you want, but both of these stories are critical of politicians from both parties and the system.

Re: “Trump will stop in South Carolina on Wednesday to assess Florence damage

Can you radicals at least be honest, you don't hate our President, you hate the country. Actually you just hate, you're angry and godless souls. Liberalism/Marxism is your religion and consumes every fiber of your being. You are the great destroyers in our peaceful world. Spreading your misery is the only thing that keep you centered on a daily basis.

Our President is the first President in nearly 100 years that didn't need to suck off the tit of taxpayers to make their wealth. His sole mission is to drain the swamp of DC where leaches of our society siphon the wealth from the rest of the country for their own personal gain. And instead of joining him in this noble fight, you join with the swamp and their stooges in the media and entertainment.

Sad, very sad. What's even worse is that you feel you are on THEIR TEAM. LOL, you are not. If not for us, you would have already been squashed under the soles of their totalitarianism.

You are no different than the liberals from up east who move here every day to escape worsening conditions in their "blue" states only to vote blue here to destroy once again. Parasites all

Re: “S.C. 5th District: A race between a man who jokes about sexual assault and a man who has admitted to domestic abuse

No,Cid, this is why no one should take Sam Spence seriously. First I would say neither is fit for the office, and I would also point out I was a vocal opponent to Nikki Haley from day one. After reading this, read his half-assed attempt to plant blame on Nikki Haley for a purchase by a previous administration.

Re: “Stegelin: Confirm, Serve and Protect

What kind of world do we live in when they give THE NOBEL PEACE prize to someone who put world children under bombs, and loved to use them! We aren't killing terrorists. We are killing them. Dont matter if they are wearing military fatigues, dresses, or flip flops. We drop bombs and then scream, "FREEDOM!!!", but all they hear is death.

How accurate is a smart bomb dropped from 3 miles up? About as accurate as gravity. Then they ask them," terrorism school anyone? We pay ten dollars a month, but you get to pick and choose your own victim to rape from our selection of the decent women of the region USA support helps us kidnap."

Re: “Stegelin: Confirm, Serve and Protect

I still want an APOLOGY from OBAMA for creating terrorism schools in Libya, opening the floodgates of destitute migrants to europe(even though Europe deserves it for causing world wars), and creating ISIS in Syria.

I would like to see Obama prosecuted and given the electric chair. That would be a good apology so he can get an early start in hell. He can also be the first president to get the chair!

His shadow government administration deserves to be prosecuted for wasting our nation's defence resources for personal gain (and our loss)

"Ruth Bader Ginsburg came out saying she was groped by Abraham Lincoln," OH LAWDY NO HE DIDN'T ! Just a lame joke. Irrelevant.

We have one normal candidate running against a man who admitted to physical domestic violence against his ex-wife. But, the CCP equates the two. Seriously, this is why no one takes democrats seriously anymore.

If only there was some sort of service where buses can pick people up at a designated stop and take them to some type of shelter that could withstand a storm.

Re: “Stegelin: Florence Fever

Research how they came up with 3000 dead in Puerto Rico. You may be surprised. It's from an average of prs that died over the last several years.
