Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

SC
Last undeveloped wilderness coastline in the north east! Get your property while its red hot! Perfect place to retire/work/ or marry! Help us rape nature with an insatiable appetite to turn charleston into another Jersey Shore, LA, or Chicago. THE GDP IS all that matters. Another couple of opportunities produced in SC this year included Harris Teeter's greedy expansion from FOODSTAMP MONEY. Also a big boom in convenience stores were reported as Liquor/tobacco/porn/caffeinated sales spiked as employees work 60 hour weeks to pay the ever rising costs of living.

Let's let the Bankers name another over priced newly constructed development using the words "plantation" like brickyard plantations in MT pleasant. Anyone who spends 400,000 dollars on a house that would be 85,000 anywhere else in a hurricane zone is an IDIOT from out of town.

Your GLOBAL corporate masters will eat your children for a 1.3 percent increase in their stock options, and fire you while laughing at your broke ass like DONALD TRUMP. Who cares anyways? They have ROBOTS to do all of your jobs quicker and cheaper anyways, and for everything else they can hire mexicans. Your all lucky our bank masters still let us labor for them in the sun, because if they run out of uses for you another pre planned WORLD WAR 2 will erase the excess humans like you neatly off the planet! Enjoy the civil war of humanity! At least for now they send all the killing overseas like our jobs.

The reason Charleston is so big is the same reason the IRAQ WAR STARTED

In reality it is just the CIA trying to get less people to go back and forth from other places like mexico because its a security risk.
Eat those CARROTS! The commercials say they are good for eyesight, but in reality the USA just produced too many damn carrots that year and needed to sell them.

Of course City paper isn't in on it or anything, by constantly regurgitating the pleasantville bullcrap. This RAG is just an advert for strip clubs anyways.

Re: “S.C. Airbnb reservations spike 380% for upcoming solar eclipse, Charleston tops list

nobody cares. Does anyone else know any cool websites/aps that can help us not get screwed by our corporate overlords who work for/advertise in city paper? Why does EVERYTHING need regulation? The HOA downtown doesn't allow air b2b so why are you advertising this to people?

Re: “Higher police wages could reduce unjust interactions with minorities

This bail system is ridiculous. For one thing, a large percentage of murder suspects are guilty, so for our safety, they should not be released on bail, no matter if they can pay millions in bail. Similarly with rape suspects and child molestation suspects. On the other hand, those suspected of minor crimes, misdemeanors, should just be trusted that hopefully they will show up for the trial and not disappear. After all, if they are convicted, they might spend only a few months or a few weeks in prison. Or if we want to keep the bail system, then make it proportionate to the suspect's amount of wealth and amount of income, so even the very poor can afford to pay the bail.

Re: “Let’s unpack this new preview for Southern Charm spinoff Relationshep

Shep is nothing more than a low rate actor from Hilton Head who pretends he is from Charleston for the purposes of filming Southern Charm. When did he "move" to Charleston, when he was cast for Southern Charm, familiar situation for all but 2 of the cast members.

Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

Seems like a good train/trolley system fixes all of this. Trains from airport to city center, from outer areas to city center, from the city to the beaches. Almost every thing listed in the second paragraph is fixed with this solution.

Use paper straws! There really is such a thing!!! I used them when I was a kid. They made them until the 1960's when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “Strawless Summer challenges Charleston bars and restaurants to give up plastic straws

What's wrong with paper straws?? I used those all the time when I was a kid! They are biodegradable.
They made paper straws up until the Sixties when they were replaced by plastic straws.

Re: “Why are white men turning on women?

you worry about being able to raise them to be good men- because you cannot know how. your worries are justified. only a good man can raise a good man. or the cruelties of a world filled with evil can provoke a man to change it. but a woman can never raise a boy to be a good man. she can only raise a boy to be a good boy.

Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

Charleston's printed accolades are not doing more harm than good. Yes, our infrastructure is suffering and it has been for a long time. Luckily the gas tax passed and road projects will start churning in the next few years. Like the writer states, the Rust Belt cities have lost key industries and now those cities are noticeably shrinking. Therefore, I would think it would be wise to not shew away tourists as tourism is a key industry of Charleston. Charleston is a wonderful place that is full of activities and entertainment. We should be happy that we live in a place that is on the rise, unlike the rust belt.

@NewslessCourier

That's because 526 is a solution for the terrible traffic through the Savannah/Folly/Maybank corridor. The land it is cutting through is already developed or already planned to be developed.

Re: “The Agenda: Cruise ships hit downtown cap; State to discuss I-526; Graham reacts to McCain cancer diagnosis

Uhh...Mr. Santos....
The underlying reason for the limit on docking is not due to a lack of dock availability. It is to keep the city from being more overrun with tourists than it currently is.
Somehow this plan is either completely tone-deaf to the will of the city or is yet another end run to circumvent regulations which have previously been negotiated and accepted as a reasonable compromise for all residents of Charleston.
Regardless of the unknown motivations and interests of Mr. Santos, it seeks to circumvent the efforts of residents to maintain the quality of life in our city.

Re: “Jury sides with family of CofC grad Sarah Jones in wrongful death lawsuit

Let me get this straight. A film crew, knowingly, trespassed onto railroad property to shoot a movie. They filmed on a live railroad and believe it's the railroad company's fault for the killing? It would take a train at least a mile to stop at that speed and they should stop because some people want to shoot a movie? Screw that. Get the heck out of the way.

Reaching the (voluntary) cap (of 104 per year) means that there are no more open slots available for the remainder of the year because they are all booked - apparently thru 2018. Booked ships will continue to dock.

Re: “Charleston's printed accolades may be doing more harm than good

Charleston and the area in general are suffering from a lack of infrastructure and planning, that was ignored for the last 40 years or so in favor of more glamorous projects like the Guillard, Aquarium, and others.
