Re: “Charleston gets its first all-female co-working space this month

Hey Charleston City Paper, there is a typo in the last paragraph. "Lady bosses" isn't actually the correct spelling for "female founders." Just a heads up.

Re: “Thomas Dixon gives us a choice

Good overview of a life of sin and redemption! We need to redeem this state and its difficult past. Dixon will have my vote.

Re: “KKK homework highlights hurdle to racial equality

Third-Grade Football Players Take A Knee During National Anthem Look this up if you care about indoctrination. You need to look at both sides although I realize that is difficult for a lot of people. These kids didn't have a choice to decide, at least the fifth graders you write about do.

Re: “How South Carolina's guns end up in the hands of out-of-state criminals

Jshicke,

Bloomberg illegally accessed the trace data using his authority as the Mayor of New York. Charleston is a tourist town which sees hundreds of thousands traveling through and to here. At one time most people left their doors unlocked their, It is a hunting state, and a firearms friendly state. So yes there are going to be more than your average trace data coming from here because per square foot there are more guns(also its safer per square foot!) Every hunter has a pistol, and most home owners do too. It was a witch hunt, Mickalis was not the only Charleston gun store to be accused by Bloomberg, but he was the only one that fought the entire fight.In my eyes he won by attrition, just because there was a trace data completed on a gun, does not mean an actual crime is committed with said gun. ie. felon pulled over with a firearm in his possession, a legal gun owner traveling to liberal country or moving that isn't familiar with the gun laws, college students that have changed to an SC residency so that college is cheaper gets caught taking a firearm back home. In Mickalis's case, I do not believe that they released each trace data case and scrutinized it. had they done so, Mikey wouldn't have had a case at all. This was definitely a case of government overreach and an abuse of power case due to the fact that he illegally used FBI trace data(not available to the public) to sue in a civil case not only once but twice(one case In Charleston SC and one in New York City). He also continued to run stings after the ATF told him to cease and desist. I think that had the Firearm community been as large as it is now, then we would be dealing with a much different case. Also to mention this was about the time firearms were starting to take off so there were more manufacturers, and a lot more models than even as close to as two years prior. basically this set a precedent that no one has seen: that a politician can attack a free market business using data that was collected using government credentials to intentionally be misused and twisted to fit a narrative. He was never even approached about the overreach, nor his complete disregard for the rules. He was basically a pre-Hillary

Re: “A desperate message from Puerto Rico and how you can help those affected by Hurricane Maria

Go to ViequesLove on facebook. They can use all the help they can get. Vieques is a small Puerto Rican island 6 miles off main island PR. They have no running water, no power, no internet, no phone service. No fema, red cross or any group there to help. So ViequesLove was created to fill that void and they have been amazing for grassroots organizing turned into a lifeline.

Re: “The Agenda: Volvo announces XC90 in Berkeley; Trump blames McCain for health reform failures

I wish some car companies would build new plants in Detroit. That city needs new plants very much. Lowcountry is already too crowded, so many people have moved here, rents are rising way faster than inflation.

Re: “KKK homework highlights hurdle to racial equality

If I were a member of ISIS, I would think that all non-Muslims and all non-Sunni Muslims, whom I would consider to be non-Muslims too, are evil, deserve to suffer forever in hell, and so deserve to be killed.
If I were a member of the KKK, I would think similarly that all members of minorities are evil, deserve to suffer forever in hell, and so deserve to be killed or at least enslaved.

Re: “The #TakeAKnee 'protest' is trash

Good piece KJ. These arm-in-arm owners (JJ, Snyder, Kahn, etc) are the same people that support a man that demean most of their players. However, they participate in a display of unity for a cause they never expressed. It's completely fake and means nothing towards the real issue.

Re: “The #TakeAKnee 'protest' is trash

I think the taking of the knee during the anthem is a protest that the American flag now represents an openly racist society, including law enforcement and law makers. Systemic racism blaming all of societies problems on minorities is celebrated under the American flag - Systemic racism that is legislated by state and federal congresses to make sure the minorities remain so. Or, put another way, it's veiled white supremacy being legislated and celebrated under the American flag. The American flag, somehow doesn't represent everyone anymore - just the white establishment.

Re: “A desperate message from Puerto Rico and how you can help those affected by Hurricane Maria

My name is Carol and I live in Spartanburg South Carolina. If anybody is interested in sending non-perishable items and toiletries they may do so to the following family and address. My aunt and uncle are in their seventies and caring for my dying grandmother in her nineties. No electric and they are running out of supplies very soon. You may send these items to mirta huertas. P.o. box 68. Caguas . P. Rico. 00726. Very good Christian family and I assure you whatever they don't need or use they will give it to their neighbors or church members.

Re: “Cutouts in tow, Democratic Congressional challenger Joe Cunningham promises not to be another Mark Sanford

Did someone say "Mark Sanford"? Y'all know how much I idolize him. He got public funding for his "hiking". I want to be publically funded for my "hiking". I could "hike" a lot more if other people were willing to foot the bill. For money I could be the hikingist fool to ever come out of SC. I would vote for Cunningham just because the cutout is brilliant. I like cutout Mark Sanford much better than real Mark Sanford. With cutout MS we don't have to listen to his usual blah, blah, blah, same old, same old. City Paper I think you should use cutout Mark Sanford's Pic in all future stories on him, looking quite dapper, great haircut (nudge nudge, wink wink).

Re: “A desperate message from Puerto Rico and how you can help those affected by Hurricane Maria

to HOPE....please see page 1 of the Charleston City Paper Online. In case you missed it:
Beginning Tues. Sept. 26 through Oct. 7, donations can be dropped off at the Goose Creek Rural Fire Department, Simply Fit in Summerville from 5-7 p.m., Deep River Church of God and Iglesia de Dios Nuevo Comienzo in North Charleston on Saturday 8 a.m.-3 p.m., Select Fitness at 7671 Northwoods Blvd. in North Charleston, Pollo Loko Peruvian Cuisine in North Charleston, and Power Zone at 497 La Mesa Road in Mt. Pleasant.
And, these are just a few. Every grocery store I've been too is asking for donations for all hurricane victims. There are places all over SC collecting items and donations. Keep in mind that tremendous help is needed in many places due to these consecutive storms. We, that have family and friends in Puerto Rico, are desperate here for news, but know a lot of people are doing the best they can to help in any/every way they can to help and Volunteers (God Bless them) are spread thin given all the need. Let's keep HOPE alive and positive.

Re: “Cutouts in tow, Democratic Congressional challenger Joe Cunningham promises not to be another Mark Sanford

Don't think this Cunningham guy is the answer, but getting fed up with Mark Sanford, he came and spoke to the employees at Boeing last year, and someone asked him about him breaking his term limits pledge. He gave some long rambling answer and seemed to dodge the question altogether. I think Katie Arrington from Summerville, running against him in the Republican primary will have my vote.

Always give your women some small reasons to be pissed at you.
That way, at least you know why they are pissed.

He should make one with Sanford in his hiking boots, on the Appalachian Trail, which as we all know runs from Maine to Tierra Del Fuego.
