Re: “Two-way conversion of Spring and Cannon streets begins Oct. 2

"Discouraging speeders and bringing attention to local businesses" is an overtly fake reason for this change. As mentioned in a previous comment, you'll bounce your head off the roof of your car if you speed down Spring St. This change makes everything about driving downtown MORE DIFFICULT. Sad attempt to fool the public as to what the real motive is. Another area to avoid downtown. We've only got a few areas left where traffic flows semi-efficiently. Terrible idea for all parties. No one is "thrilled".

Re: “Charleston Rep. Savrinakis calls for ban on bump stocks in wake of Las Vegas shooting

The gun debate is already settled. Elementary school children getting murdered didn't change anything, so nothing is going to. We just have to accept the fact that many many many people are going to have to pointlessly die so angry, insecure men can feel like their rights aren't being trampled on.

Funny how with all of the Second Amendment fellating around here, no one ever mentions the "well-regulated" part.

Too bad Calhoun died over 10 years before the Civil War started. He is not a Confederate.

Re: “Charleston History Commission grapples with reconciling Calhoun’s legacy and bigoted beliefs

John C Calhoun is the source of economist James McGill Buchanan's state protected property rights and used by Chas. Koch as basis for take over of the Republican Party. Please read new book by Nancy MacLean, "Democracy in Chains The Deep History of the Radical Right's Stealth Plan for America". These people would like to bring back the pre civil war interpretation of the Constitution that was enforced by the Southern Justices always appointed to the Supreme Court. YIKES, I had my eyes opened and I am a gun owning Democrat.

Re: “King Street Cabaret

My first time there at the cabaret and by the way i am a 45 years old Caucasian man who loves my beautiful black sisters but when i went into the club i didnt see any i met some of the dancers there and sat and talk with a few of them and asked if they were any black girls there i was told that they dont hire black girls, bad enough no one greeted me coming into the club it was poor judgement, weird looks and horrible hospitality. I took my money and went to The Silver Slipper where i got treated with respect!!!! It was the worst experience ever. I wouldn't recommend this club to anyone

Re: “As Trump dumps DACA, three Charleston-area Dreamers face an uncertain future

"These people want nothing more than to improve the lives of others" They are? How? Maybe Alyssa should take in a family and pay for there schooling and housing and tuition. She wants me too.

Lee Anne- BS they do receive public assistance: Schooling, medicaid, children receive food stamps, child tax credits, US government willing lets them use stolen SS ID #'s ect.....

Re: “Charleston Rep. Savrinakis calls for ban on bump stocks in wake of Las Vegas shooting

If bump stocks are made illegal, I'm going to buy 10,000 knives and try flinging them 1200 feet, at rapid-sling, to hit my paper targets. Or maybe, I'll try 10,000 hatchets because they "fling" better. Hey, I know - a rapid fire bow and arrow or cross-bow. Simple solutions for simple minds.

When the founding fathers founded this country, there were no such thing as automatic or semi-automatic weapons - all were muzzle loaders (revolvers weren't introduced until 1836 by Samuel Colt) that took a minimum of 10 seconds (for the accomplished) to load and pack their rifles for another single shot. Somehow I don't think the founding fathers had envisioned rapid fire weapons when penning the Constitution. Rapid fire only came about in 1862 around the time of the Civil War in the form of the "Gatling Gun".

But hey, I could care less about disarming of automatic weapons because I don't go to public gatherings and am not in danger of being mowed down and I don't care about anybody but myself anyway, so there. /snark. I mean, once you pay for the tickets at your favorite public gathering, you can't afford health care and if you can afford health care, you can't afford the tickets.

And about outlawing the truck - which is USEFUL. Fully automatic weapons are only useful for killing on a mass scale - MILITARY style. And, no, we don't outlaw the truck but we make the truck safer by doing all kinds of modifications - pedestrian friendly shapes and materials for the front end, autonomous braking, etc.

I demand UN weapons inspections, Sanctions, and labeling all of these American nuts off as terrorists. They are all terrorists.

But don't forget to use Colgate! Remember how Snuggle bears living room was so wonderful to be in with him? Thats why I buy snuggle bear brand. I felt safe as a kid during the commercials

Re: “Summerville man arrested for allegedly sabotaging local TV news station

Well was it a malicious act? Did he have political motives? Or was he just worn down and resentful of everything no matter what building he was camping around?
Kinda sounds from the description like he was just a homeless guy.

You guys should go to the jail and ask him and do a story on it. Are you guys allowed to drive all the way out to summerville and ask questions from the scene?... Charleston City paper covers arrests in Berkely county now?
