Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

The statistics argument is a good one. Cars kill more people than guns! Well, lightning strikes kill more people than terrorists do, so why is everyone so up in arms about ISIS and al Qaeda?

"Cars kill more people every day then guns do in months. Hammers and baseball bats kill more then guns."

Cars, hammers and baseball bats are not designed with the sole purpose of killing something else. People aren't crashing cars into school buildings or army bases or malls to commit mass murder.

Re: “The One-Pot wonder that is Raccoon Stew

The old timers used to eat anything that moved! My grandfather trapped squirrels and would make a nasty big old pot of squirrel stew with 7 or 8 of his cronies all cackling round the kitchen table over it. A few of the real old guys still do it and not as far away from Charleston as one would like to think - say hey Mt. P. They just love them some squirrel in SC. My grandfather would throw all the nasty little fellows in a freezer in the carriage house and split them up with our housekeeper who made a spicier version of same squirrel stew. Two SC old time squirrel killers. We would bring friends over in the summer and show them all the little bodies lined up in the freezer thinking they would sketch right out but many would just say oh yum squirrel. Hahahaha. It is what is is, Possum Pie and Squirrel Stew were Southern staples for a long time.

Re: “The One-Pot wonder that is Raccoon Stew

awwwww At 5 pounds...these are just baby raccoons. ( kits ) I guess you would have to have raised one to understand how wonderful these animals can be. They get such a bad rap. I find this photo totally disgusting! If we all ended the animal abuse issues, the Planet Earth might just be a kinder-healthier place to live.

"The company started with him, his wife, his brother, and a high schooler packaging everything," Ruonala says. "Now we have over 300 employees with over 100 veterans or active-duty."

"McCallum started his company the same year Obama was elected president"

Sounds like he's done pretty well during Obama's reign of terror.

This is very sad, would you have a dead lamb hanging out of a stew pot for lamb stew?

"he discovered he had TBI, traumatic brain injury"

Definitely sounds like someone who should be armed to the teeth.

Re: “Palmetto State Armory is arming South Carolina with its own take on the AR-15

Sadly you should read the statistics. Cars kill more people every day then guns do in months. Hammers and baseball bats kill more then guns. What you are going by is the sensationalist biased media reporting.

Porsche has killed more people then you would believe, DR Porsche got his start in the Aero industry designing planes for the Germans.

Only thing is, Porsches don't kill people. I appreciate his American dream and the hard work he did to accomplish it. Other than that, he is just mass producing unnecessary & powerful artillery. Too many "accidents" too many lives lost in the name of self protection. America.

Re: “A is for Ally: Susan Cohen

Sorry but no matter what i will never consider A for ally, only for asexual. There is no need for the A for ally to be there, the whole human population needs to accept the LGBTQQIA+ community. If we had a community for women we wouldn't have something in the title to say "and men who also agree with a lady's rights" because it's common sense, no need to include anyone outside the community.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

So trollslayer - every restaurant serves alcohol, so you are saying that people with children cannot go out to dinner with their children anywhere ever? That is ludicrous. So do you just lock your children in their bedrooms until they turn 18? Have you ever been to a restaurant in Charleston? There are kids in most restaurants that are not high-end at some point during the day/night. I go out to eat with my well-behaved 16-month-old all of the time (before her bedtime, of course).

"So if the beer lovers don't like a place there is no way it can be good for anyone else because, ya know, they told you so and they know more than you do."

I specifically said that I like Morgan Creek. However, it doesn't fit into the article, and the article doesn't fit into the beer issue. Simple and polite criticism.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

My suggestion? PBR at the Recovery Room - keeping it eternally classy in Chucktown. #2 in the nation for PBR sales and trying to hit #1. Best time ever for the entire Brewski family. Bring the wee ones, we can start a kiddie mosh pit and wear the little bastards out. Throw them in the pit upon arrival and fish them out when leaving, all tuckered out and ready for slumber - just make sure to take the right one. Agreeing with factory connection on the tiny angry drunks - true that. I'm great with kids (can't you tell.) Just a suggestion.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

chrishaire you have to remember that people who like craft beer are much more intelligent than the average person and if you are not an expert on craft beer you are really not able to understand what they are talking about. That is why their beer costs $9 for one and yours cost the same for a twelve pack. So if the beer lovers don't like a place there is no way it can be good for anyone else because, ya know, they told you so and they know more than you do.

Re: “How and where to imbibe with your kids in tow

brewengineer- I fully agree with your posts. Completely hits the nail on the head with how out of place this is. Also nice observation on the fact that only one beer writer was involved. No matter how great Timmons is, he is still exactly one person as pointed out. It looks like an effort to try and borrow off Timmons/CHSBeer's cred to put up something out of place like this.

Re: “Thanks to Revelry and Tradesman, the Lowcountry's brewery boom continues to, well, boom

The more, the merrier I say. I'm looking forward to Ghost Monkey's opening. I happened to be at a party where one of their brewers did a sampling for the guests and they had some very, very good recipes.
