Re: “The Agenda: Tebow promoted from Fireflies; Haley booed at NYC Pride; Nuclear plant without timeline

Pretty low of the gays to boo Nikki Haley! Give me a break. Shows how stupid they are. And narrow minded. She is the first UN Ambassador that stuck up for Israel and gave it to the UN for being anti Semitic for all these years. And this administration will not stand for it. Not like the last administration.

Shows absolutely no class on the gays to boo her. She had done nothing wrong to them, other than to be appointed by him. Did they forget she took down the confederate flag at the Capital. What narrow minded nudnicks.

Re: “Charleston County School Board gives initial approval to $14,000 pay increase for board members

Always thought these positions were part of volunteer/community service. Even though I do not reside in Charleston County, I found the comments of the school board member who is a barber re his income/ etc. to justify the increase in CCSB members' "salary increases," a sad excuse. My father always said, "If you can't afford to do it, don't and don't make excuses for any of it."

St. Lucie (FL) Mets and fans got the "promotion". With all due respect to TT, you don't promote a lackluster player so the only reason I can fathom is other teams in more respectable states want to "cash in" on his celebrity. Unless TT requested the change himself, of course, but we don't know because few details have been reported. Anyway, Good Luck, TT, and hope your game improves.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

lynnar, thank you for proving YET again what either Lunatics or True Enemy within you are. So you say you are a Jew and "Europe has The worst health care."

1st, Europe has a much better Healthcare results in EVERY measure compared to USA as you can see here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_syste…

Do you see that bizarre Upside DOWN bar in that chart vs other OECD Countries? That is Healthcare results of USA and how much it is costing vs other OECD Countries. As you can see USA has the worse Healthcare results by far compared to other OECD Countries, but as bad as that is, it gets WORSE, since USA is also spending twice more than OECD Countries to have this WORSE among all OECD Countries Healthcare results!

2nd, it is not just Europe that has Government run Universal Socialized Single payer Healthcare (NHS), so does 100% of other Developed Nations, including Israel the beloved Nation of Republicans, Obama/Clinton Democrats & the right-wing Media and you being a Jew, here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_i…

But as a proof of what True Enemy within you and your lot and Republicans are, you oppose NHS for American people, resulting in 50,000+ Americans being KILLED each year due to denial of Healthcare due to pre-existing Condition alone, etc. while your beloved Israel has NHS.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

Palestinians are Semitic people too, so if Ellison/Democrats are pro Palestine, how can they be anti-Semitic? Stop throwing words around just because you hear them used on TV. Think about what they mean.

And, by the way, criticism of Israel is not defacto anti-Semitism like many want to believe. There are legitimate human rights issues that need to be addressed.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

As much as I dislike Sanford, I'll hv to vote for him. I did not vote for him in the primary. I wanted him out. The way the Democratic Party has shifted to the Far Left shows they are no longer the Party they were 30 years ago. Even 20 years. The fact that they wanted Keith Ellison as their Committee Chair? And now is their Deputy Committee Chairman? Sorry. This man is an anti Semite. Has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Being a Jew, I have found the Democrats are much more pro Palestinian. The Left on college campus's support BDS boycotts. My parents were victims of Nazi Germany. I know what a true fascist is. Trust me, Trump is no fascist . I love how uninformed people use the term so loosely and refer to Trump as Hitler. Ivanka married an Orthodox Jew and converted. Eric and Don Jr. Both married Jewish women. Hitler took guns away from the German people immediately, once he became Chancellor. Goebbels was head of propaganda. Ya think Trump is in control of the press? Ah, don't think so. Jeff Bezos, a huge Lefty, owns THE WASHINGTON POST!! He seems to be taking over the world, and all of you think Trump is the fascist? Ha! Worry about George Soros. He owns most of the media. NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN ,MSNBC , NYT, Washington Post, LA. Times. Every major newspaper is liberal, and all the liberals accuse Trump of being like Hitler. People should brush up on their history.

I used to be a democrat. But in good conscience, I can no longer vote in that party. Republicans are not much better either. It's all out of control. All of D.C. Need a good kick in the ass. And guess what? They got it. Trump was voted it. And the more the democrats continue this witch hunt, they will keep losing elections. Instead of taking accountability of running a horrible candidate, they blame Trump and the people who voted for him. All I heard for a year from CNN and MSNBC was there was no way for Trump to get 270 Electoral College votes. Like parrots, repeating the same thing. Until the day after the election. Then all of a sudden because CA had more popular votes, Trump really didn't win. Give me a break. But, that's the dem's for you.

Europe is a mess. Thank God we don't live there. I lived in London. Forget it. The worst health care. U get what u pay for. Hopefully they will work out this healthcare mess. There is tremendous fraud too. So much bureaucracy. There were 2700 pages to thing. Really? Tons of added taxes. That were not needed. Obamacare is imploding. So something needed to be done. I did read you will be able to buy insurance over state lines. That is a good thing.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

To a Evangelical Christian mocking their faith , or what you call "good natured ribbing " is the same thing as someone making comments about your wife or daughter in a salacious manner . You just don't do it if you have any decency or class. And then apologizing afterwards when the person knows that none of you mean it. That's slap in the face #2.

Kudos to Councilman Keith Waring for standing up! In this day and time, not having effective representation on important committees to reflect constituents/voters in Charleston County is disappointing, Mr. Mayor. Operative words:. Efective, representation, voters.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

This article NOT once lists what are some of the Policy positions of this Mr. Cunningham!
And there is the problem in USA, Republicans and Democrats run on Shtick that:
"They are against career politicians..." and not much else.

When the FACTS are that: Republicans: Trump, Ted Crazy, etc. are either complete lunatics or WORSE! And Obama/Clinton Democrats are a FRAUD.

About TEAPublicans being lunatics: ABSOLUTE proof of this comes from conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc., because ALL these Conservative parties are 100% for their Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare (NHS), what Republicans call "Socialism" or "Communism" and oppose. So either ALL Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. are "Socialists or Communists" or Republicans in US are complete lunatics. AND why ALL Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. are all 100% for their NHS? Because it SAVES 50% on cost of health care while giving health care to all their People (FREE) for Taxes they pay.

About Obama FRAUD: ABSOLUTE proof of this comes from them passing a Healthcare plan proposed by Ultra right-wing of the Republican party (aka Heritage Foundation), which plan lead to RomneyCare, but it is NOT even as Socialized as RomneyCare! As a result of which Healthcare plan Obama passed has made little improvement in the catastrophe that Healthcare was and is for 100-Million+ Americans.

Yet Republicans & Wall Street Media are playing such Con Job on US, to call this plan they proposed, a watered down version of which Obama Fraud passed, this exact opposite of NHS, to be "Socialism"!

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

I'm not an avid baseball fan...but I was totally impressed with the "apologies" of all of the Riverdog Fans who expressed their sincere apologies on behalf of the city AND the team. Those of you who did....are the real class acts here....Right along with Tim Teebow. His faith is ALWAYS an inspiration....and so are the Riverdog fans that care enough to offer their class act apologies.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

"Snowflakes" = a term used by the intellectually challenged due to a lack of a cogent argument.
"Libertards" (sic) = a derogatory term used by someone disrespectful of the mentally challenged using their disability as an example of unfitness.

Liberals strive to help, share and care for the disadvantaged while conservatives strive to hinder help to the disadvantaged, because it nullifies their power over them. Given this, why are so many xtians on the conservative bandwagon? Because they are CINOs (xtians in name only), for they really are only interested in helping their own kind and themselves - or forcing the "lost" non-xtian into conforming to their tenets.

When I was growing up, xtians helped and loved almost everyone in the community. Today they hate everything non-xtian and that's deplorable.
