Re: “Maybank Public House

Some of the best burgers on maybank highway. The truffle fries are to die for. There is something for everyone and everything I have had here is fantastic... All of the bartenders Whit, Anna, Drew, Josh and the staff John, Kelly, The Emilys, Brandon, and Brian make you feel like family. The best part about Maybank Public house is that the kitchen is open till 12:30 and if you get off of work late you can still eat. Love the public house and crew.

Re: “Current and former administrators sue Charleston County School District, alleging widespread racial discrimination

There are so many horrible things going on at CCSD. My child is white and he was made to sit in the white principal's office several times all DAY. While I thought he was in class. Took my 10 year old son time to tell me what was going on and why he didn't want to go to school. I had got the principal in trouble with the district the year before and he got revenge by being awful to my child the next year. The super's and board know this happened. The creepy principal still has a job. Not cool. I think CCSD is going down and getting in tons of trouble for being lame and breaking the law.

Re: “At last, a hopeful acknowledgment of the Confederate flag's bigotry?

OK. then no racism on the Dukes of Hazard, they had the Confederate flag there ignorantly, unaware of its history and everything. Ignorance can happen. Somebody can use the Soviet flag ignorantly, for example he likes the Russian language, so for that he could use the Soviet flag, unaware how offensive it is to people like me.

Re: “Attractive but unaffordable, Mt. Pleasant is pushing out its working class

I believe this will be a disaster soon. I moved here in 1991. I bought a townhome in 1993. Rent and buying a home was affordable. Now, it is not. Ive seen my, no HOA, neighborhood become a mixture of homeowners and renters. I am thankful that I dont have to pay HOA dues, but they have a place in communities, and there are a lot of pros and cons on HOAs. My home no longer has the value it once had because of the mixture. You have homeowners that take care and improve. Then you have the renter that could care less what the home they rent looks like and live accordingly. Of course, there are some exceptions. A lot of this has happened because of the situation of affordability of buying. So, older neighborhoods, like mine, become the affordable rental.
Now comes in the county taxes and home insurance policies. Ill add auto too. My auto insurance keeps going up every year to the point I cant afford it. I thought, as a car got older, the less its value and the insurance decreases. Not true! Back to the county property tax. Thank God for the Homestead Exemption! Yet, it will not be enough in the near future to be affordable to keep my home. I havent received my Home Owners Insurace yet! However, the same company that insures my car insures my home. Guess what? You bet it will be much highter this year. So, yes! The middle residents of Mount Pleasant will eventually go away. It is sad. I hate seeing what is happening.

Re: “A note from City Paper publisher Noel Mermer

My Mother was diagnosed with ALS in 2018 following a year of doctor visits and tests aimed at finding a cure for her slurred speech, difficulty swallowing, and weakening limbs. By the time she was diagnosed, she had developed pneumonia and was put on a respirator.

Tom Martin - you, unfortunately, are a great example of a low-information decision maker. Good luck with that in life.

Re: “At last, a hopeful acknowledgment of the Confederate flag's bigotry?

Tom, you should watch the Dukes of Hazard and report back if you think its racist. You just typed out your own ignorance and willingness to give an opinion based on something you know nothing about. That show was on in the early 1980s when people didnt get offended at every little thing. I grew up in a county that was 65% black and I remember going to school after The Dukes had come on and all the kids, black and white, talking about the show. No one ever talked about the flag, just how cool the General Lee was, that was the car in the show, and the episode itself. They probably wont even play it on syndicated TV these days in fear of people like you who dictate policy based on feelings.

Re: “Let's confront the ghosts of our past and calm things down

I would gladly welcome any community dialogue where we are trying to UNDERSTAND and not fight. We live in the same country and breathe the same air. I see when you question American race relations they feel like you're questioning their faith and identity. Neither side can control the fate in which they are born as black, white, or whatever but we can control and choose how we live within that skin. How are you going about this? How are you trying to understand someone who doesn't have the same skin complexion as you? Have you considered sitting down within someone who doesn't share your background? How American are you exactly? Are you trying to leave this world in a better state or not? Are you black first, human second? White first, human second? American when?

We always think in groups or of ourselves and never consider that we all want the same basic things as people. A GOOD life. Period. Life is just too short. Just because everyone who is a legal American citizen wants to be treated ENTIRELY like an American citizen equal/same benefits and rights to follow it; isn't going to take away for your Americaness. Doing this makes you more AMERICAN because you are living up to, and upholding every word in the American Constitution, and all other laws and sacred documents which have been written since the beginning. You are helping to support and strengthen your foundation; when you want better for everyone even those who don't look like you. The world looks up to America to live up to their Americaness. They've always tried to mimic and practice our beliefs as much as possible, but America needs to pick that torch back up. Yes, the same flame that the Statue of Liberty holds high.

I feel like the attitudes and mental conditioning of American identity; has to change. Your thoughts and views about others desperately need to change. I and the world are under the impression that America equals all people, just like God. Once you are here, you see Americans don't feel this way at all. They want America to equal whiteness with the sprinkling of others; so it's not enough of a threat which will question their national identity. If you look out into other European countries right now, the same pattern is happening. I know America is the forerunner and has always been the World Leader. All nations follow you, so you have to be careful because we are the TORCH whether you want to acknowledge that or not. You're showing everyone how to handle race relations. Are Americans embracing it? Are Americans fighting it?

Whatever happened to the idea of "countrymen?" Another word for "brotherhood." We quickly forget we are all connected. Talking it out should be the equivalent of therapy sessions, but we never talk we always shout in defense. Calm down. "We are never going to fix this marriage this way." What are you defending exactly? Your identity, right? You will be no less American if you followed your beliefs and ensured all who step on American soil are treated fairly and if not justice will ensue without question. The hearts and minds of the American people must, must, must go back to the foundation of their beliefs. We haven't had a TRUE history lesson in so long. Don't you know the uppers love you to stay in darkness so you can continue to fight amongst yourselves while they carry on with their Agendas? Have you ever thought about this? What will happen to the world if we continue to crumble and lose our beliefs and the order which held it all together?

Even with ALL this being said, sadly I look and read and see you are content in darkness. Not only content; you are warring with each other to stay there. Shake yourself awake and dare to talk with all people who enter the country and those who were lumbered here.

Have a hopefully reflective weekend!

Re: “The Sophia Institute wrote Charleston's slavery apology. Now, it's losing black members.

Its because our focus is constantly shifted away from real important s*** to make everyone victims of ancient atrocities from other centuries. The ONLY THING holding someone back in THIS COUNTRY is that victim mentality the media TAUGHT THEM.
No apology needed. Were all strangers in a strange land here.
This countries revolutionary spirit is stifled by this crap, and hidden with destruction of world culture and resources wasted squanderously.
War driven economies based off of scorched earth approach toward the human collective spirit will always lead a society to self destruction.
Our citizens are so quick to point the finger and blame others for their own laziness and repetitive habits of lifestyle these criminals decided that starting a war was a good sales approach.
Stop allowing these highly addictive prescription drugs to be mass produced and flown legally into this country a wall wont stop. Thanks BAYER! NOW WEST VIRGINIA IS FILLED WITH YOUR CRACKHEAD PERSCRIPTION DRUGS. COMING SOON TO A TOWN NEAR YOU! THEY ARE SPREADING!

Re: “The Sophia Institute wrote Charleston's slavery apology. Now, it's losing black members.

What's that spell? Mono-rail! (Simpsons reference) That's the 9/11 sales tactic they use to ruin our nation's spirit.

Might as well start getting boeing to build that prt since that sales guy from the Simpsons cartoon had a better plan for our government than the Bushes and clintoms

It's called they have a Personal Rapid Transit the college at WVU built that serves the whole town that really makes us look backward technologically compared to Morgantown West Virginia.

Re: “The Sophia Institute wrote Charleston's slavery apology. Now, it's losing black members.

Ya It was called the triangle shirt coat factory fire. It happened on the same block 9/11 happened in the 1920's and featured footage of people jumping out of skyscrapers to their deaths as well. This was used to pass legislation to create osha. AKA 9/11 WAS CAUSED BY A BUSH AND THE DEMOCRATS WANTING ENDLESS WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST. AKA THE OLDEST TRICK IN THE BOOK.

They have to do something to stay obscenely rich! They decided that the USA building tanks and bombs was better than free education, health care, and updating our infrastructure like China has done. They sold our government those bombs, took our money, and gave our nation the finger.

One of our colonies founders colonel Rhett as soon as he was able opened charlestons first free school and gave the royalty rich europeans the finger. Wow alot has changed in America spirit because of these dark satanist philosophers.

It's called crimes of philosophy. Lies!
