Re: “King Street lunch counter sit-in plaque replaced after two years

I think they should have put the plaque back in its original spot. Not noticeable now and attached flush to a clothing store

Re: “King Street lunch counter sit-in plaque replaced after two years

There is something terribly wrong or perhaps just ironically tragic that this brave event is memorialized by a plaque attached to the wall of a company that for years has been vilified for its' human rights violations, including using child labor, thousands of workers killed in their shoddy factories...and chiefly their inclusion (along w/Walmart, Nike, Starbucks & Nestle) of the top companies in the world who use slave labor.
Do you shop at H&M?

Re: “The Agenda: Templeton not disavowing Roy Moore; GOP primary to replace Merrill

Another reason to vote for McMaster in the primary. Templeton is just too far out. If she wins the primary, we will have an extremist for a governor. I see no way that a Democrat can win the race for governor in this state. Most whites in this state are ultraconservative.

Re: “Everyone you ever loved or cared about is now in real estate

I always tease that when you move to Charleston and change your drivers license instead of asking if you want to be an organ donor they ask if you want to include a real estate license. My friend Karen used to act like she was a Realtor when we went out just to fit in at parties (don't tell anyone but she actually sells ads in industrial publications).

Re: “The Agenda: Templeton not disavowing Roy Moore; GOP primary to replace Merrill

Yeah, we have enough to deal with than to get involved with pederastic Senatorial prospects. As long as we can get the republican agenda of "make the white and wealthy, wealthier" thru, then little girls are just "collateral" damage? With no due respect, Ms. Templeton, you are part of the problem, not the solution. Do we need a woman who knows her place in a man's world to be governor? No we need a governor that is going to stand up for the poor and middle-class, not the rich and elite. As long as you hold on to the Greedy Old Party (greedy on money, greedy on power, greedy on rights) you are just another self-entitled prig.

Re: “Park and ride is headed our way, expansions already being planned

Park and ride is such a great idea to pursue for our tight peninsula...bicycle ferries and harbor taxis are pretty neat, too.

Re: “Citadel to host panel discussion on the causes of "intolerance and hateful speech"

Beautiful irony! Citadel to host panel discussion on the causes of "intolerance and hateful speech"
The original purpose at the time of the founding of the Citadel was to train a militia to put down future slave insurrections.

Re: “Gov. candidate Catherine Templeton calls Steve Bannon "the voice of the rest of us" ahead of his Citadel speaking gig

In light of Roy Moore's alleged pederasty, "MAGA" also serves as an acronym for "Molesting Adolescent Girls Again", apparently. And so far, 53 Christian pastors(?) are behind him for standing up for biblical principles (of perversion, it appears). Yikes!

Re: “VIDEO: Watch Steve Bannon's full Nov. 10 speech at the Citadel

Not many of us "white" guys support this blatant racist. Those "white" guys are a vocal minority of bullies, bigots and racists, even if they don't admit it - deep down, "they" are.

Re: “Sullivan's Island woman who interrupted Bannon speech cited for disorderly conduct

Dale, your snark is rooted in fake news, aka FNC, etal. "That ugly, overweight, and incredibly rude excuse for a woman?" You are the definition of a rude and disrespectful "Trumpledite". Maybe you should spend some quality time with your Savior and understand his message.

Re: “Sullivan's Island woman who interrupted Bannon speech cited for disorderly conduct

Looking back on this time, I sincerely doubt the people who stood up against this dreck are going to have to apologize for anything. Authoritarian regimes rely on people clinging to civility and decorum despite the disgusting nature of the professionally-delivered address that advertises their intentions.

But hey, I'm sure all the students of history at the Citadel and elsewhere already know how this system works. They're so learned and aware, so against relying on feelings and intuition... they could never welcome authoritarians with open arms for the mere promise of a tax cut and a bit fewer immigrant-looking people around town, right? Right, guys?

Re: “Steve Bannon, leader of populist "revolt," is likely flying to Charleston on a private jet

He is a stain on our society and I'm embarrassed that we're both veterans of the same Navy, but come on. Can you imagine having to sit next to him for hours on a commercial flight? He's doing the traveling world a favor.

And yes when you run a garbage news site that pollutes the world with conspiracy theories, you need private security. Zero surprises, nothing revelatory here.

Re: “The Agenda: SCANA could get $2 billion tax break for walking away; Many favor assault-style gun ban

Ron says, "So you're saying that the only people who commit crimes are criminals"?
Ah yeah Ron that is correct.
Gun control is like a front door it only effects honest people. Dont forget 80,000,000 guns in USA, sorry cant go back in time and not make these guns. We can't pretend like they don't already exist.
