Re: “Resistance movement must fight hypocrisy to survive

Thank you, Mr. Akhyari,for putting into eloquent language my feelings exactly. As a person who is pretty opinionated and passionate about loving "the other" even while retaining the prerogative to despise individuals in any group, I found amazing disparity among the fellow protestors at the Citadel rally. The church people in the group were disparaging the more militant faction and the anarchists were much more tolerant of the church people. Since I am a member of neither, I went around hugging without reserve but wondering if any progress against Trump's evil agenda could be realized when we, as protestors, can't love one another. We are playing right into the alt-rights' hands, and they are correct in pointing out our biases. Only love for one another can save the day!!!

Dissent is good when it is the Left against the Right and bad when it is the Right against the Left.

Re: “Everyone you ever loved or cared about is now in real estate

Who is Joe Coker? Great history lesson on Charleston, but he has no idea of what a true professional Realtor goes through to make an honest living in the real estate world. Two years and a day; that's what separates the wannabe agents and the true professionals. Most agents drop out after the first year, and the second year is even worse. For a Realtor with over 30 years in the business, I take offense to Joey mocking an industry ("seedy underground"....really?) in which over 95% of all residential real estate transactions in this country are handled by the pros. With commercial real estate, it's even higher.

I've paid many mortgages, real estate taxes, the cost of raising a family (including college tuition) and have been afforded a comfortable lifestyle both on Long Island NY and now here in Charleston. Realtors are an easy target, but for those who have used the services of a true professional, they understand and know first hand how "their agent" had their back, protected them and most importantly, helped them make one of biggest purchases they'll ever make in their lifetime.

So Joey....I challenge you to sit through 90 hours of classroom education, pass the test AND then take the State test. Once this is done, get all dressed up and sit your sorry a__ in an office and try making a living in real estate. I've been told that Realtors ......"make something out of nothing." No guarantees, just hard work and endless hours "working" the business.

Anyone can research the "Factual History" of Charleston and pen some cheesy editorial......let's see Joey get his license and etch out a comfortable living selling real estate.

I thought Gregorie's campaign ad was weak. Something about since he is already in office, why start over. That's all it said

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

I live in North Carolina and this is the first year we have had the noseeums here.
I am the only one besides my grandson they bite. I have been trying to get them out of my house and it does not seem to be working. I purchased some spray over the internet and we spray every time we leave the house. My husband never gets bitten, this I do not understand. I know I have as much as 100 bites and I am sure when we had the last bad storm that came up from Florida that is where they came from. NC does not spray even for mosquitoes and they use too.
Would love to see that change, I contacted my county commissioner to no avail, he will not get my vote next time.

Re: “Everyone you ever loved or cared about is now in real estate

I'm a real Realtor and this is hysterical. The "selling & closing" part of the business is the bonus, the rest is lead generating. Not so glamorous and yet so rewarding.

And if they're not in real estate, they're opening a restaurant...

Re: “Is S.C. next? Steve Bannon is trying to sway GOP primaries across the country

Cannot wait to vote for Catherine Templeton!

There are worse criminals operating under the state capitol dome in Columbia, SC than some of those currently enjoying lifetime careers of graft and corruption under the capitol dome in the District of Columbia - Washington, DC. Some would even make the narco regimes in Colombia, South America look legitimate by comparison.

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

In quoting Fred without following up with us about how we do actually feel it implies his statement is true and we are worried about our future.

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

That's the 2nd time in 2 years City Paper has implied EBTV is closing or in trouble. As a regular customer myself, I was just told last week that 2017 has seen their best profits ever.

C'mon, CP- I love this publication, but how about a more balanced article, or maybe showing one of the last remaining services/core businesses on the peninsula some love?

We need to reform the Republican party. It's outrageous how some senators/politicians in the party are attacking Roy Moore.
They might as well register as Democrats.

Nice work. I am not even familiar with the Charleston real estate market and could still pick up on the pointed sarcasm.

East Bay True Value, Adam reported the facts of what was said at the meeting. He did not imply that the feelings of Fred Turco were your own, he merely quoted what Turco said.

Re: “Charleston City Council again considers reining in Planning Commission’s power

Okay , so these people are in appointed positions , they are picked by who? Council members and the Mayor. Even Stevie Wonder can see this is not right! So these public elected city officials are saying its the commission fault. So why is this commission still operating. All the city incumbents made this poor decision and thats why we are putting them in the street!!!

Re: “Everyone you ever loved or cared about is now in real estate

The thing is, every realtor down here (and I know a bunch of them) is the same. They talk of mimosas in the mornings, of some "big development project" they're working on, how they're thinking of opening a restaurant/brewery/yoga store. They live in a pretty nice place, have a suspiciously nice car and go out every single night. You'll ask them how they're able to afford it and it's always the same answer: "oh, investments. And I saved a lot in college.. oh, and my dad - he's a cardiologist in Tennessee and is sort of helping me while I find myself..."

Re: “Former Veggie Bin location rezoned to make way for housing

A customer is not a reliable credible source as to our intentions or survival. Maybe ask the business owner?
