Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

That was the "burn" of every Clemson grad? The president saying many don't know Clemson is a great academic school? That was the subject of an entire article? Seriously?

The fact is most do not know it's a great academic school. Most recognize the university because if its iconic athletic logo, the tiger paw. But yes it is also a great academic institution. It's the highest rated public academic university in our state.

But I don't understand why pointing out that fact is supposed to be an insult to those of us who graduated from Clemson. I guess the author was just looking for a reason, any reason to bash Clemson and/or the president. I'll take the "burn" of the president calling my alma mater a great academic school over the author's pride of claiming this silly little journalistic jewel as one of his own.

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

Trump can be mindless at times with a serious case of speak (or tweet) before you think syndrome, which is not helpful. I guess this mindlessness leads some of his supporters to become persecuted snowflakes here of late. After 8 years of bashing, racial epithets and cartoons against President Obama's ethnicity, I would think they'd have tougher skins, but alas, no. Trumple-thin-skins, to be sure, need to get their "tiny" hands dirty and calloused. And Clemson, while a team to be proud of, kowtows to the most disrespectful entity to walk the earth - I'm surprised that trump's knuckles don't drag the ground.

Re: “Donald Trump definitely just accidentally burned every single Clemson grad

Just curious, if he didn't say that then what else would you have written against him? You obviously have to try to tear down the POTUS like a true Lefty, so if it wasn't this statement, what was the next thing? Something else he said? The way he tied his tie? Buttoned his jacket? Walked to the podium? Smiled or didn't smile? Shook hands? What? Couldn't just leave it as the honor to the team that it was? Unbelievable.

Re: “Fate of Mt. Pleasant Moe's mural to be decided Tuesday, June 13

As a Mt. Pleasant resident who mostly stays away for all the reasons people like to complain about Mt. Pleasant, I found the mural on the wall of Moe's an excellent variation from a hood dotted with corporate logos. Of course I thought it was a mural and not a sign. Why can't the town leave something good be?

Re: “The Agenda: Police seizure laws scrutinized; Mixson apartments to reopen; S.C. falls off Fortune 500 list

If the VC Sumner plant is not completed, that's over $8 billion gone with nothing to show for it. Also, increasing population means increased electrical base load, which will mean more natural gas plants will have to be built at additional cost.
No matter how much solar or wind power is added to our system, we will still need base load plants for when the sun isn't shining, which happens every night; and when the wind isn't blowing.
Personally, I would prefer that these nukes be finished rather than adding more fossil fuel plants, even though they would be natural gas rather than coal. (sorry Donald)

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford doesn't buy 'He's new' defense of Trump; Revisiting Townville; SCE&G solar program

Dorrie, Under trump, your tax rate (somehow I doubt 40% after filing) will stay the same or increase, while the corporate elitists that trump looks out for, himself included, will become exponentially richer. Watching FNC all the time, makes one ignorant to reality.

Re: “Restoration effort reveals new look inside the Hunley, but mysteries still remain

Joseph, I agree with you that drowning is unlikely. But I also agree that it is unlikely that asphyxiation caused the sinking. I suggest another possibility. I believe the crewmembers, and especially Dixon, were incapacitated by the effects of the explosion. This resulted in an out of control backward descent and impact with the bottom in about 10 minutes. The extreme noise produced by the explosion might alone have been enough to disorient or debilitate the crew until hypercapnia or hypoxia took hold. Eventually, the crew did die from lack of breathable air, but that is not what led to the sinking of the Hunley. And I am aware that the U S Navy's Carderock Division does not totally support my position, but they fail to provide a convincing alternative.

Re: “The Charleston Lie

I own and operate a liscenced pedicab business in California. I am also a person of color. And a woman. I would never speak about a neighborhood in the way that these disrespectful pedicabbers did. In fact, if I ever heard another pedicabber make disparaging comments about someone's race, gender, class, etc. I would immediately take action. As for the comments about pedicabbers not being well educated, many of us have college degrees and are well travelled, bilingual & seek to learn from the world rather than judge it. I don't know what these particular pedicabbers were thinking. In every field and profession you will find a few bigoted jerks. I'm sorry this happened and I would like to assure you that many of us pedicabbers are really respectful and gracious people who would never make such rude comments about your neighborhood in Charleston.

Dorrie, Trump is the ultimate elitist. He is rich and he cares only about the rich.

Re: “S.C. congressman driven out by tea party says he voted to impeach Clinton for less serious issues than those facing Trump

Inglis was quite conservative in the House, though not on all issues. It is sad that conservatives are so intolerant of those who listen to science on global warming, that they gave so much money to Gowdy as to make sure Inglis is defeated in the primary. In many Republican districts you have to agree with the conservative consensus on all issues, to be elected, rather than think for yourself. So the ultraconservatives now dominate the Republican party, both in Congress as well as in local offices, there is little room for moderates any more.

Re: “The Agenda: 7 years since Alvin Greene; Duncan deletes Facebook post; More flooding days in Chs.

Yes, global warming has advanced, so there is more tidal flooding in Charleston. And yet Trump does not want to fight the global warming.

Re: “The Charleston Lie

One pedicab driver tells 2 people a lie, then tells two more, then 2 more. Thus six people tell 6 more people that tell 6 more people, etc....get my point. When do we stop calling repeated stupidity "isolated"? The company needs to be reported.

Bob Inglis has been a Never Trumper since early 2016. Desperate attention seeker. Pathetic.

Re: “Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg joins city leaders in vow to uphold Paris climate agreement

Good for you John Tecklenberg ! Your voice is badly needed . Thank you for pointing out the physical reality of changes in our environment and specifically, the City of Charleston.

Re: “Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg joins city leaders in vow to uphold Paris climate agreement

He is acknowledging the physical changes that are happening on a global level and to deny this fact is absurd . Of course there is a connection to the agreement . The dollar amounts of money that are being spent by our government is tremendous and that money needs to have a roadmap attached to it . Trump missed the point entirely and needs to qualify his position as the American people do not support this action . We all need to speak up now !!!!

Re: “The Charleston Lie

I was asked to name black owned restaurants, those were some that I have visited in the past. Perhaps some have closed recently, there are plenty more opened, I don't have a list in front of me.

But it doesn't really matter if I provide names or not, you just want to argue a question of what the word "large" means. I seriously doubt any of you guys would give a black owned restaurant the time of day and could even name one, let alone eat there. So spare me your faux outrage.

Re: “The Charleston Lie

Foghorn, some of those restaurants you listed like Backman Seafood are permanently closed, some are not black owned, and the rest of them are in North Charleston.
