Re: “The laws of the land and the sea could care less about property rights

Well, I do care about global warming, after all, I live in a coastal city. Though it is likely that by the time the sea floods West Ashley, I will be long time dead already, I am in my sixties already. But by the time of severe flooding, people here will find their houses impossible to sell, will have to just abandon the houses and move inland, like to Columbia etc. I feel sorry for them, but global warming is not likely to affect me much. After all, my mom died of cancer at the age of only 65, and my dad died of cancer at the age of 74. So I don't think I will live into my nineties. Sure, one of my grandmas managed to live until the age of 88, but she was unusual. She had beat the breast cancer she had inherited, and she did not develop any other cancer. But it was not a happy time in her eighties, she was almost blind, almost deaf, and had severe arthritis. But no mortal disease, she had fallen on the stairs, got hospitalized, developed pneumonia in the hospital and died of that, rather than any old age disease.

Why would anyone in that crowd want to change? Just because you don't agree with them? Did you get paid? What a loser.

Actually, I don't care....or as was noted in Gone With the Wind, I don't give a damn. Much easier to say....and understand.

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

Hey, they can stay. But they have to pay out of state tuition in the state they live in. Their parents have to go back as they are the ones that brought them over. They cant vote for 25 years. And if they want the parents to stay??
Then none of these families for 3 generations are allowed to collect any govt funds. Welfare, Medicaid, home asssistance. Nada. They cant have it both ways.

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

ICE has Charleston on its list. Not only will illegals working on construction projects eventually be rounded up, but their employers will take a ride in paddy wagons with them. It is possible the land developers could go down.

Re: “The laws of the land and the sea could care less about property rights

Yes, please fix the headline. I can't stand it when people say somebody could care less, when they actually mean he or she could not care less. If somebody could care less, that means he or she actually cares at least a little, since then they could care less, but they don't care less.

President Trump did not do this to these illegal aliens, Obama did. He used these people. They think he and the Democrats are their friends. He and they are NOT!

Re: “The #TakeAKnee 'protest' is trash

Factory connection, sorry for the late reply.

Please note, I said in police shootings (Brutality), not in the legal system. The media stories I have been following did not say they were protesting the entire legal system, but officers on the street shooting blacks.

Washington post police shooting database. This database is based on news reports, public records, social media and other sources:

738 people killed by police officers this year to date.
White:331
Black: 168
Hispanic:112
Other: 24
Unknown: 105

Shot while in possession of a firearm: 418
With a known mental illness: 170



963 people were shot and killed by police in 2016
White:466
Black: 233
Hispanic:172
Other: 38
Unknown: 29

With a known mental illness: 241
While in possession of a firearm: 518


995 people were shot and killed by police in 2015
White:497
Black: 259
Hispanic:160
Other: 42
Unknown: 62

With a known mental illness: 256

Re: “With half of all gun thefts coming from unlocked cars, Charleston police zero in on break-ins

One reason why guns are left in cars is the requirement for a concealed weapon permit to carry a firearm anywhere else BUT in your car. Further, many businesses prohibit carrying a concealed firearm into the premises, requiring the permitted carrier to leave the firearm behind while they conduct business.

Leaving the car unlocked is definitely unsound advice, especially if you know you just left a firearm in there.

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

What the taxpayers have paid because of illegal immigration is the real crime.What I find most interesting is the all out BLITZ by the Democrats, MSM, every faculty member at any university in the country fighting to the death for illegal aliens? yes they put a warm and fuzzy name on it "Dreamers." and no one seem to wonder why? future voters? can you imagine the Democrats ever being this interested or motivated in issues involving citizens! There is an estimated 800,000 DACA recipients in the US. That is 800,000 jobs American Citizens don't have or will be in competition for.

The MSM and Democrats would have us believe that all 800 thousand are not taking jobs Americans want (we've heard that lie for many years now.) This is another falsehood told to the American people. Democrats have actually changed the language. It's not illegal alien its "Immigrant." (like the lie
there just 'Kids") there not all picking strawberries they take great Jobs. Good enough jobs to buy homes put their kids through college.

Why must the citizens of our country have competition for jobs, education in their own country from foreign nationals? Now Democrats and illegal alien activists admit DACA recipients have great jobs,are buying homes, paying taxes.

"Some" of the costs of illegal immigration.

*The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien.

*Now city, and state officials are appropriating millions of taxpayer dollars for legal fees to to file law suits and in defense of illegal aliens being deported.

*2012 illegal aliens sent home $62 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. This is why Mexico is getting involved in our politics.

*30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At 21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison---U do the math.

*$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens, I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY to process Illegals in the Criminal justice system.

*$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps),WIC, & free school lunches.

Re: “The laws of the land and the sea could care less about property rights

Please, please, please fix the headline; it poisons the water from the get-go.

That being said, I appreciate the sentiment of this piece and am baffled by peoples' desire to continue building things into the water and seal up the absorbent wetlands in our neighborhoods and towns. Does not believing in anthropogenic climate change actually make the streets on the West side dry? Is that my problem, that I accept sea level rise and therefore I see it turning that neighborhood into a lake during regular rainstorms?

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

Trump didn't dump DACA, he simply did what Obama and his crew wouldn't, sent it to Congress. Obama should be ashamed for giving these kids hope and then not following through. But that's what he was so about, hope without conviction.

Re: “KKK homework highlights hurdle to racial equality

Tom Martin, as a white I have been stopped for no reason. Police brutality has been on the decline since the seventies but nobody wants to hear that. Exposure is one thing, indoctrination is totally different. Many blacks don't want equality or harmony. Example, Google Tina Parkz Washington and let me know how you would change their minds. White privilege is buzz phrase put out by liberals to assuage their guilt. You never hear about Asian privilege do you? Then why are they doing so well in America?

Re: “The race to find equity and accountability for short-term rentals

Resident homeowners have every right to expect that their residential neighborhoods will be protected from disruptive commercial encroachment unless it is a function permitted as a result of jumping through the ususual hoops. People who buy or own houses in restricted zones who wish to turn them into STRs should do the research before they invest their cash or their dreams into such an undertaking. I think a lot of the complaints are from people who went in with unreasonable or unfounded expectations of hoping to change the law after the fact or who just did the STR thing anyway and got caught or thwarted.
