Re: “Summer etiquette from an enlightened caveman

I have a question for your legal eagle buddy. While at a Golden Corral, I witnessed a 'young person' stick a chicken leg under the wonderful flow of chocolate at the chocolate fountain, place it in his mouth to lick the chocolate off the salty friend chicken leg, and then reinsert the chick piece under the flow of chocolate for a flavor refill, doing this several times before the leg gave up the meat leaving him only a bone which he promptly let fall to the floor. Does this constitute a 'double dip'? I think not since the dip technically flowed over the chicken rather than the chicken being dipped into a stagnant pond of chocolate. I realize that the chocolate is then pumped back up to the top to continue its flow to the bottom once again, but the legal point is that the chicken was not dipped? But I defer to his legal knowledge.

Most of trump's administration started out with unsecured and personal servers and only changed after being exposed, so hypocrisy anyone?

Re: “What we can learn from Turkey's regime

First correction: these are no Americans, but Turkish and Syrian citizens holding a US residents permit. Don't make it sound like they are US citizens. Secondly, these people are terrorists or supporters of terrorists who found a safe ground in the US, and this should be your first question: how is it possible that the US allows these people to enter the US.

Furthermore, if the US has all the rights to attack any terrorist or perceived terrorists in the world, Al Qaida, Taliban, Saddam, Khaddafi, Asad, or threaten countries and leaders of countries, then Turkey has every right to hit back on their terrorists. Anywhere in the world. I can't put it more simpler and clearer.

Re: “Mayor of New Orleans makes the case for removing Confederate monuments

A great American once said"Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death".
Another note is: The Confederate Flag had "nothing" to do with "slavery" & therefore was "not" "racist".

Re: “Mayor of New Orleans makes the case for removing Confederate monuments

As a father of three wonderful children who are all successful citizens,I have a philosophy of life & one of many.
When educating our children,we don't "remove" an object that they are fond of or "not"fond of,for they will always wonder "why" Mom & Dad did this.What we do is "EDUCATE" them on why this is what it is & what it means to "history"or to "anything".
This is what we call education not brainwashing.

Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

My neighbor was so ferociously bitten by no-see-ums, that he confessed to me the ill effect it had on him. He claims that the following day while riding public transportation to work -- he had a sudden, uncontrollable urge to sit on other men's laps while singing Julie Andrew's songs. Is it possible that the bites affected his brain's chemistry? I just find it so bizarre.

Re: “Woman who dressed as dinosaur, startled carriage horses surrenders to police

Why else would she be in the costume if it were not to scare the horses to cause an accident? She was asked three times to stop and continued the act. She should be brought up on charges of terrorism. She caused injury, and put the passengers lives in jeopardy. She disrupted a legitimate touring business, that is licensed through the city and state. And left the scene of an accident that she caused.

Re: “Newly released jailhouse videos show the strained relationship between Dylann Roof and his family

While I understand the parents must be hurting to an incredible degree, I'm disappointed that the father notes "You know everything you've done reflects on us as a family", as if that is what matters.

Re: “CARTA isn't an attractive option for most car owners — but it could be

The idea that buses in Charleston reduce traffic is a myth perpetuated by the people who stand to profit. At any time, only a few people are riding a bus. The buses are mostly empty. Next time you pull up next to one, peer inside and see how many people are actually in it. How many people do you see at an average bus stop? less than 5. Also, I'd like someone to do a real cost benefit analysis. Take the total cost to operate CARTA (overhead, personnel, capital equipment, fuel, operations) and divide it by the number of passenger trips. I bet it isn't any lower than a uber ride. It'd probably be cheaper to subsidize people's uber/taxi rides than operate this large, inefficient, behemoth bus company with its unionized employees and overhead and wasteful spending. It makes sense to operate the bus lines downtown, but the area is spread out with islands everywhere, connected with bridges, all making it highly inefficient to operate bus lines. Last time I rode on CARTA, people would try to get on and pay with pennies and nickels, wasting our time. Other times, people would try to beg their way on for free and hold up the rest of us. No wonder the buses can't get anywhere on time. Bums and people trying to count out pennies to the bus driver at every stop! And the buses hold up traffic, driving slow and making frequent stops.

Re: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

oh, non existent jail employees? That doesn't align well with the other many non existent and fictitious people that fill this entire story. Not to mention all of the single character photographs that are all done super professionally, or the fact that the CCTV image showing Roof entering the church that day is timestamped earlier than the incident by some 20+ hours earlier. Of course try and find those original images and you can't - they've since been erased - and some agencies have been able to debunk it. Then, you have about two dozen news stories specifically time stamped June 16th, that launched a day earlier. And thats without even dealing with the early leaks that happened on June 17th.;_ylt=A0LEVu6T_YdVIV0AvIcPxQt.;_ylu=X3oDMTEzajVvczlrBGNvbG8DYmYxBHBvcwMxBHZ0aWQDBHNlYwNwYWdpbmF0aW9u?p=shooting+inside+church+in+Charleston+SC&pz=8&ei=UTF-8&type=agc511&fr=yhs-avast-001&hsimp=yhs-001&hspart=avast&b=1&pz=8&xargs=0

And of course we know that Joe Riley park is "just"across the street from the City of Charleston Police Dept. That should be a lot more revenue.

Re: “Wanna email Gov. Haley directly? Well, now you can:


The "DEEP STATE SLIMY CREATURES" have successfully taken the narrative of all of the lies and corruption that happened during the Obama/Hillary administration, AWAY!!

Just at the time when the murder of Seth is as the Wikileaks leaker is being exposed, as the Obama deep state presidency is being exposed, just as Hillary HOPEFULLY will be sent to jail by a new attorney general, just as the news media is being exposed, JUST AS HE IS HAVING AN INVESTIGATION INTO VOTER FRAUD, JUST AS just as the country is being turned around IN FAVOR OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, by a president that is CARRYING THROUGH ON EVERY CAMPAIGN PROMISE that he can, without being raked over the coals, WE HAVE A NEW "TRUMP SCANDAL"!!!! Now, isn't that interesting...NO PROOF, NO TRAIL, NO FACTS, JUST ARTICLES IN FAILING NEWSPAPERS LEAKED BY ANONYMOUS SOURCES TO COWARDLY TO GIVE THEIR NAMES!!! WHY didn't those people go to the justice department if it was that bad??? WHY DID THEY GO TO NEWSPAPERS???

News that the stock market has hit record highs
News that unemployment is at it's lowest in years
News that businesses are investing back in America
News that he is going to lower taxes for ALL OF US
News that he is going to be able to give the best health care at a lower price
News that he has signed, like 35 executive orders that are freeing up the stifling overreaching ones that Obama signed
News that illegals coming over the Mexican borders are at an historic low
News that ILLEGAL CRIMINALS are NOW being deported
News that Americans have a new respect for their police force
News that EDUCATION will be changed, especially in the inner cities, to make America #1 again instead of 24th in education
News that he has met with hundreds of CEO's to see what he can do to make America have a better business climate
News that he hasn't made one new law, he's just enforcing the existing ones
NEWS THAT HE'S GOING ON HIS FIRST OVERSEAS TRIP that is unprecedented! Going to countries that have the 3 major religions to show our solidarity with them. It's never been done before!


If we all have time, i suggest we go to the facebook pages of those that WE VOTED IN TO HELP OUR PRESIDENT and tell them to stand behind him or they will be voted out by ANY OTHER republican that runs against them in 2018!!! HEY REPUBLICANS,,,HAS ANYBODY TOLD YOU THAT YOU WON, YET???? It doesn't appear that way!!

They have turned out to be the biggest cowards right next to the SLIMY, SLITHERING DEMOCRATS! They need to hear from us and NOW!!
You are welcome to copy and paste all or any of my post right on to their facebook pages or emails.

Re: “Why the Charleston County Sheriff's Department needs a new pursuit policy

What a one sided article, did you ask the sheriffs office if they use any other techniques to end the pursuit of fleeing vehicles? Because I promise you they have other tools available to end pursuits and they are regularly used. They are also 100 times safer than a PIT maneuver wich is essentially speeding cars colliding with each other at high speed. The exact thing you are whining about to get your 15 minutes of irrelevant fame. You should stick to ambulance chasing.

Re: “Why the Charleston County Sheriff's Department needs a new pursuit policy

What do you think are the percs of being a cop? High speed chases and beating people up. It's fucking true and it's about time we address the mental traits of police.
