Re: “Want to live like T-Rav? Buy his $2.8 million Beaufain Street house.

Big deal he bought the place a couple years ago for a little over $1 million, why dont you mention its directly next door to the low income city of Charleston housing project on Beaufain St. You think any smart person will pay that kind of money to live next to that?

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

Ima, Mike, dont bother William Herron is not a real person, most likely an employee of Halls. Notice its his first comment when you click his profile and he just signed up for an account. Every time a real local person says something about Halls on City Paper that doesnt fit in with how great Halls is you get one of these people with one or 2 comments who recently signed up to post something glowing about Halls. If you go to the main reviews about Halls, its discussed there and you see the same pattern.

Re: “Halls Chophouse, Taco Boy opening in Summerville's Nexton neighborhood

Oh geez, please not Halls, I thought that super eccentric family was confined to downtown. William Herron its been my experience that locals who can afford it stay away from Halls because of the fake... family and awful rude bar crowd that precludes you from even having a conversation in there after being charged hand and fist. Out of towners and posers like you who think its the cool place to be are who you will find there. The smart money in Charleston blacklisted themselves from that place along time ago.

Re: “S.C. gas still some of the cheapest in the nation after tax increase on July 1

Dont mind the gas tax hike if it was actually going to fix the roads, which I seriously doubt. The legislators will find other pet projects for much of the money, and direct it to contracts to line their and their buddy's pockets. Our corrupt state government at work.

Re: “S.C. gas still some of the cheapest in the nation after tax increase on July 1

I paid $1.79 per gallon yesterday. Took a trip to Indiana last weekend and South Carolina still had the cheapest gas of all the states we passed thru.

My only complaint with the gas tax hike is that it did nothing to address the issue whereas a good 30% of the tax money is not used for roads. Now that we are increasing our tax income from gas, that means a larger amount of money will be spent on things other than roads and road maintenance.

Hello, just to say your link in "Ness will be joined by Rene Ahdieh who will be on hand to discuss her historical fantasy A Flame in the Mist." doesn't work. A bit of googling indicates the book is called Flame in the Mist, no A, so maybe that's the problem.

Re: “Lindsey Graham calls Trump tweet 'beneath the office,' Tim Scott tells president not to be distracted

@Tom Martin

Obama was the most divisive president in my lifetime.

Class warfare is divisive. Undermining Christian values when 70% of the population is Christian is divisive. Pitting black against white and inciting race riots and giving criminals the benefit of the doubt is divisive. Inviting a police officer who doesn't even drink beer to a beer fest with a racist professor who was uncooperative with the police is divisive. Telling the one percent who pay nearly half of all federal income tax that they aren't paying their fair share is divisive when 40% of people who file for income taxes are profiting from the Federal income tax and receiving refunds in excess of their withholdings during the year. Telling hard working entrepreneurs who risked everything going into business to become successful that "you didn't build that" is divisive. Obama meddling in Israel's election was divisive. Obama having a Tawana Brawley hoaxer and racist fraud like Al Sharpton as an adviser is divisive. Obama siding with ISIS against Assad in Syria is divisive. Obama meddling in the Ukraine and overthrowing an elected president there was divisive. Obama and Eric Holder running guns to drug cartels was divisive. Obama not understanding the difference between legal and illegal immigration is divisive. Obama releasing five Islamic terrorist generals in exchange for a traitor who abandoned his post and converted to Islam is divisive. Obama increasing the national debt by over $9 trillion in only 8 years and saddling the new generation of American children with that debt burden is divisive. Obama annually paying over $400B interest on that outstanding debt to the one percent foreign international banking cartel all the while falsely claiming he is against the one percent is divisive. Obama claiming he is against the one percent when about 70 of the top 100 richest people on the Forbes 100 list support the Democrat party is phony and divisive. Obama forcing Obamacare down our throats when not ONE single Republican voted for it was divisive. The gallup poll showed that at the end of Obama's second year in office, there was a 68 percent gap in his approval rating between Republicans and Democrats. That's the widest and most divisive margin since the poll has been conducted. Obama using gay rights to attack opponents of same sex marriage was divisive. Obama's false accusations of a GOP war on women when it was the Democrats who opposed the women's suffrage movement was divisive. Obama publicly demonizing and ridiculing the Supreme Court was divisive. Obama using our tax dollars to bail out Detroit was divisive. Obama undermining our elections by refusing to support voter ID laws was divisive and treasonous. Obama's efforts to prevent military ballots from being counted was divisive. Obama dropping off $1.7 billion cash on a pallet to a terrorist nation that his own State Department headed by sHillary listed as a "State Sponsor of Terror" was not only divisive but treasonous. Obama screwing the bondholders when he lawlessly rewrote loans in the GM and Chrysler restructurings was divisive. I could go on. MOST DIVISIVE PRESIDENT EVER = CROWN GOES TO HUSSEIN OBAMA. It's the media that is DIVISIVE against Donald Trump. It's the liberal democrat progressive neo-marxist sycophantic sheep who refuse to accept that he is President of the United States. They are the obstructionists.

Re: “Lindsey Graham calls Trump tweet 'beneath the office,' Tim Scott tells president not to be distracted

So what have Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott been getting done lately? Shouldn't you be condemning the filth and violence that comes out of the liberal democrat progressive neo-marxist alt left?

The progressive neo-marxist corporate conglomerate fake news media cartel are all frauds. The people elected Donald Trump. No one except unemployed liberal white women who carry around dogs in their purses care about what Mika Brzezinski or Joe Scarborough have to say about anything.

With that said, Donald Trump shouldn't be wasting his time with these nobodies. You can't address every tick and flea liberal progressive neo-marxist nobody who bloviates on some corporate conglomerate fake news tell-lies-vision show they've been assigned a propagandist role for. Let the Democrats continue to get their politics from late night talk shows and Saturday Night Live and Comedy Central. The potheads need their comedy between midnight bong hits while real Conservative men who have testosterone are resting from a hard day's work and resting in preparation for another hard day's work that begins at dawn.

Re: “City of Charleston transfers land to 60-unit affordable housing project

So they are using $16 million of our tax dollars to build slums for people who should earn their own income and pay their own rent. More handouts to the people who think they are entitled to free stuff paid for by hard working tax payers. No one owes you an apartment in downtown Charleston. Move to the suburbs and suffer the commute like so many hard working Americans do every day. Tecklenburg calls the projects "grace." There isn't much "grace" going on in the current housing projects, just a lot of crime and drug dealing.

Re: “Lindsey Graham calls Trump tweet 'beneath the office,' Tim Scott tells president not to be distracted

Lynnar, Trump brought the attacks on him by himself. He is by far the most divisive president we have had in decades. Presidents before him were trying to unite the country, they clearly wanted more love in this country, so they did not attack or insult any American. But Trump is just the opposite, he keeps attacking and insulting various people, both Americans and politicians among our allies. Trump is not spreading love among Americans, he is spreading hate. Quite the opposite from previous presidents I have experienced, like Obama, G W Bush, Clinton, G H W Bush, Reagan, Carter, Ford. They all had their faults, but at least they were decent in public, trying to have our country more united, and to be close with our allies.

Re: “A musician's case against the $5 cover charge

The bar owners dropped the ball over the last 40 years. If they increased the cover by one dollar every eight years then we would be at $10 by now. My wife theorizes that $5 was easier to deal with for making change. If that was a big reason, that's bullshit on the part of the owners. Sad thing is she could be correct. About a year ago I conducted a survey on my band's Facebook page about paying $10 at the door and 100% of the people who participated said they had no problem with that yet a couple of days ago I posted a message on a local (Minneapolis) musicians network FB page and I ran into the opposite reaction among most of the musicians. I got the tired old "people don't even want to pay $5" to which I responded that the person walking away because of a $5 cover charge is the same person who feels that music and art for that matter should be free for them and are probably downloading most of their music for free. So what if you loose 2, 3 or 4 at the door that night. Good riddance. Drink and food prices in bars have doubled or more in the last 3 to 4 decades and there is no reason musicians shouldn't paid be more as well. Just another age old battle in the "screw the musician" war. The bars may argue they are doing us a favor by providing a place to show off our talent but quite honestly we are the ones doing them a favor. Most of my band's fan base wouldn't normally go to the venues we play (and we play nice clubs not dives) unless we were there in fact there are a couple of bars they didn't even know existed until we brought them in. I can confidently say there are a few bars in Minneapolis that would have gone under years ago if they didn't have live music. Having said that I don't understand why the local musicians didn't demand an increase in the cover charge 20 years ago or more.
