Re: “The Agenda: S.C.'s radioactive landfill; New ethics probe bigger than 'Lost Trust'?; Moped rules sharpened

The Savannah River Site in Aiken, SC? You mean the one Barack Hussein Obama "scrapped"? Obama's best buddy, Vladimir Putin, backed out of a treaty with the U.S. to safely dispose of 34 metric tons of weapons grade plutonium (SOURCE This is after Obama did Putin a favor by backing out of the missile defense system in Eastern Europe which Putin opposed (OBAMA-RUSSIA COLLUSION!). Obama did Putin many favors, only the FAKE NEWS media never wanted to report it. The plant is Aiken, SC was abandoned by Obama and his Muslim Brotherhood counseled administration.

World Food Program? Listen, most of us are having a hard enough time putting food on the table for our own families. I mean, those of us who aren't stealing from taxpayers and having taxpayers pay for our own meals via the food stamp program which should be renamed the "rob peter to pay for paul's food program." If you are such a bleeding heart humanitarian, try reaching into your own pocket to provide food for the whole world. There's so many redundant food welfare programs (both private and public) it is hard to believe anyone is actually starving in America. In matter of fact, we have an obesity problem. Most of the people on food stamps are obese. What part of 'America First' do you not understand? Because Venezuelans voted in a Communist (Hugo Chavez) and there wasn't any incentive for anyone to go into business and open a bakery because, you know, "capitalism is evil," now it is my responsibility to feed all the commies in Venezuela because their government rationed bread lines stretch miles? Where's all the liberal democrat progressive neo-marxists who supported Hugo Chavez? Sean Penn, Noam Chomsky, Naomi Campbell, Oliver Stone, Danny Glover, Courtney Love, Jesse Jackson, and the rest of the liberal losers?

And where in the Constitution does it say that it is the Federal Government's job to feed the rest of the world? Do you even know what the enumerated powers are? These are charity functions that government not only should NOT be doing, but isn't even GOOD at doing! Every welfare program government operates has a ridiculously high overhead. Only a small fraction of the money government spends on these welfare programs actually makes it to the people who need it! I urge you to start your own not-for-profit and engage in these philanthropies yourself if you believe so strongly in them! If only Democrats donated as much in charity as Republicans did...Or, here's an idea; donate to the Clinton Foundation since they're supposedly saving the world. You can contribute alongside the $143.5 million the Foundation received from investors in the Russian company Uranium One. Russia-Clinton Conspiracy!

Could you imagine if Trump had received $140+ million from Russian donors? All you have are allegations that someone in Russia might have paid a few thousand dollars for Flynn's travel costs. You alt-left snowflakes are hilariously hypocritical and conspiratorial.

And regarding mopeds, how long until you liberal democrat progressive neo-marxist fascists require us to register bicycles and scooters? Maybe I should register my push lawn mower too? More laws, more fees, more permits. "Gub'mint keeps me safe!" It's what you guys love. How many extra bureaucrats should we hire to administrate the new moped rules? Add 40% extra for the cost of their benefits. You guys claim to be against the "one percent" but continue to empower them and increase the debt you owe to them.

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

We have a statue to Benedict Arnold also in the United States. I guess you want it taken down because he was a traitor also, or does this particular traitor not offend you?

Re: “School superintendent faces backlash over teacher evaluations, blames staff miscommunication

Teachers should be evaluated. Test scores should not be the only evaluation but they should be a 50/50 part of it. Teachers are there to educate, so I think it's fair to have test scores as part of their evaluation.

Re: “Summer etiquette from an enlightened caveman

It's also worth comparing an adult enjoying a beverage to a baby/toddler having to enjoy theirs under a blanket. It's freaking hot under there.
Mothers can't overheat their babies just so absolutely no one sees some boob skin. We'll try to be discreet sometimes, but come on. It's too hot for a blanket in the summer.

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.

Trey Gowdy is a skirt lifting coward
He places the GOP before country
Our President has an open love affair with Russia
and it appears he is going to play party
An unsecured email is starting to sound a little insignificant

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: “Fake news and the miseducation of Dylann Roof

Tupper, I suppose having a mistress on the payroll is not being corrupt? Perjury is not corrupt? Talk about fake news! Mismanaging classified emails is not corrupt? You just believe everything the Democrats tell you to believe, don't you? Bless your heart...

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.

With regard to Gowdy's heading the oversight committee, it's like asking the "fox to guard the henhouse."

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

Re: “It’s official: New law allows S.C. distilleries to serve up mixed drinks

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.
