Re: “Southern Charm Newbie, RelationShep edition: A Sickly End

I don't know who this new writer is, and there is some talent buried there, but can someone tell him the column is about the show he's reviewing and not about him and how many metaphors he knows or how many movies he's seen or about his millennial values?

These are exhausting to read.

Re: “Southern Charm Newbie, RelationShep edition: A Sickly End

It does seem to be time for the world to recognize a man on the autism spectrum. Shep is a perfect example of high functioning autism. Unable to stay focused, confused by his feelings that change from minute to minute,tall, gangly, and awkward. But brilliant in his interests and well read.
Let's hope Cameron can keep him under her wing til he can fly on his own.

Re: “Thunderguards Motorcycle Club to be replaced with globally-inspired tapas lounge

The Thunderguards will always have roots on the peninsula. They planted trees on America Street with the meighborhood, the City Parks and Urban Forestry Department, Lowcountry ReLeaf, Texaco, and American Forests. We all had a great day. Councilman Washington, a Thunderguard, lead the effort. Part of the Hugo recovery effort, 1990-91. THANK YOU, THUNDERGUARDS.

Re: “After 14 years in business, Bluerose Cafe changes ownership

They will increase prices. This was the last bargain place you could get a good breakfast. Waffle House makes me want to throw up. Bear E Patch is overrated. $2.75 for a small cup of coffee is too much and I don't care how many refills I get. Early Bird Diner always has a minimum 1 hour wait just to get in the place. By the time I get a table I want lunch.

With the ridiculously high sales taxes and rising menu prices, I'll just stay home and cook the family breakfast instead.

Re: “Dominion Energy is going after South Carolina with an aggressive media campaign

Thanks for the information Adam Manno. I still feel that there are others complicit in this, including government officials. I haven't been following the story as closely as others.

I wonder if the "average" SCE&G customer includes businesses and commercial properties which probably inflates the average refund quite a bit.

Re: “Goose Creek High's basketball team honors Emanuel 9 with new uniforms

When a black man named Anthony Bell from Baton Rouge, Louisiana shot up a mostly white church, murdered four people, then shot his own wife, the corporate conglomerate fake news media cartel didn't care. Al Sharptongue didn't care. Jesse Jackson didn't care. Democrats didn't care. The race baiters didn't care.

When a black immigrant from Sudan (one of the nations from which Trump wants to better vet immigrants) shot up a mostly white church in Antioch, Tennessee, the corporate conglomerate fake news media cartel didn't care. One person died and the other seven were left severely injured. A private gun owner stopped him from killing more people by going to his own vehicle and retrieving a firearm that the 2nd Amendment allows him to have to protect himself and his church congregation. Al Sharptongue didn't care. Obama didn't care. Jesse Jackson didn't care. Democrats didn't care. The race baiters didn't care. Democrats still want to bring in anyone from Sudan even if we have no records on them and no way of vetting them.

When a black man named Wendell Buchanan shot at three Christian churches, it didn't even make national news.

Then we can talk about the many fake hate crimes at black churches, in which racially derogatory graffiti and vandalism was ACTUALLY committed by black men! Take the racial epithets allegedly spray painted on the Cynthia Graham Hurd Library by Cainin Milton for example (source https://www.ctvnews.ca/world/black-man-arr…). Eddie Curlin did something similar in Michigan. Vincent Broughton did it in Colorado Springs. Derogatory racist vandalism perpetrated by blacks. We have black men spray painting racial epithets against other blacks and Hispanics and then trying to frame and blame white men. Pathetic! There isn't enough REAL white against black/Hispanic racism, so you now have to fabricate it??! These sort of petty, disgusting tactics are not uncommon among Democrat operatives who try to falsely frame Trump supporters as racists. Only low IQ voters fall for these tricks. Considering the statistics and prevalence of these incidents, any racial epithets against blacks spray painted on property should be assumed to be carried out by blacks in an attempt to frame whites and perpetrate Democrat false narratives.

Remember Charlottesville? Turns out an Antifa member named Dwayne Dixon admitted to chasing James Alex Fields Jr. with a rifle. The fake news media got another one wrong. Trump was right to say there was misconduct on BOTH SIDES. The fake corporate conglomerate news media cartel owes Trump another apology. Besides, only a fool would want to rip down Thomas Jefferson's statue. He fell in love with a black woman named Sally Hemings after his wife died and fathered six children with her. The REAL racists chastised Thomas Jefferson during his time, condemning him for taking a black woman as a lover. Thomas Jefferson was the opposite of a racist and one of the most progressive American men of his time. Democrats are ignorant of history.

I am proud that Charleston didn't give into the race baiters. There were even some good black Christians in Charleston who told Al Sharpton to go away. But of course Obama and his parade of goons and Al Sharpton showed up and lectured us as if it wasn't Democrats who passed Jim Crow laws. There was revisionist history and fake morality from a presidency founded upon racism and classism.

I ask that the race baiters show equal contempt and outrage when a black shoots up a white church as they do when a white person shoots up a black church. And don't BS me all of a sudden how it isn't about race. The liberal democrat progressive neo-marxists make everything about race because they lack the IQ and articulation to discuss real issues.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham reportedly pushed back on Trump's 'shithole countries' comment; Burgess sworn in; SCE&G bankruptcy without Dominion?

Wow. The first sign that someone is ignorant of politics is when they think everything is about race. Nothing Trump said was racist. Democrats are ignorant and don't want to address the real reasons for Haiti's failure as a nation. And it has nothing to do with race.

1. Forget about race. Let's look at IQ which can be objectively and scientifically measured. The average IQ in Haiti is 67. The average IQ is sub-Saharan Africa is 70. The threshold at which scientists begin classifying people as suffering from mental retardation is 70. So the question should be, why do Democrats want to import people who are scientifically classified as being mentally retarded into America where we already suffer from high welfare enrollment, poverty, and declining scores in our education system? The average IQ in Norway is 100, which is 7th among all nations in the world. Why do Democrats NOT want high IQ immigrants, and prefer the low IQ immigrants? Do you need a low IQ to vote Democrat? That would explain Democrats' dedication to socially engineering the population via open borders and sanctuaries that target low IQ populations. (Source https://iq-research.info/en/page/average-i…)

2. Also referencing the link above, Koreans have some of the highest IQ's in the world. But look at the difference in economics and quality of living between North Korea and South Korea. North Korea has a communist regime in power that restricts free enterprise and private property rights, whereas South Korea has a democratic, free-enterprise economy that protects private property rights. South Korea's corporate tax rate is 22 percent in contrast to the oppressive tax rates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders want which is 35% upwards, which suppresses entrepreneurship and prevents resources from allocating to those who are the most successful in growing the economy. And South Korea isn't exactly a model for free enterprise or the principles that made America great. Compared to North Korea though, it is night and day.

3. According to a statement from former Hillary Clinton's State Department, Americans should NOT travel to Haiti. Why? Because it isn't a sh**hole? Read:

"The Department of State urges U.S. citizens to exercise caution when visiting Haiti given Haitis weak emergency response infrastructure. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. citizens safely visit Haiti each year, but the poor state of Haitis emergency response network should be carefully considered when planning travel. Travelers to Haiti are encouraged to use organizations that have solid infrastructure, evacuation, and medical support options in place.....U.S. citizens have been victims of violent crime, including homicide and kidnapping, predominantly in the Port-au-Prince area. No one is safe from kidnapping, regardless of occupation, nationality, race, gender, or age." (Source http://www.missionaryhealth.net/2013/01/us…) citing a statement from State Department posted in 2013 when Hillary was in charge and Obama was president.

Why would Hillary Clinton say this about a nation of mostly black people? Is Hillary Clinton......RACIST? Why didn't the media and Democrats condemn Hillary Clinton for posting such a negative statement referencing Haiti to Americans who might be considering traveling there? Are you hypocrites? Or is it okay for a Democrat to condemn the conditions in Haiti but racist for a Republican to do the exact same?

4. Would Democrats prefer to live in Haiti or Norway? How come Democrats threatened to move to Canada if Trump was elected? Why didn't Democrats threaten to move to Haiti if Trump was elected? Corruption? Poverty? Crime? Poor education? All three?

5. Nearly 40% of Haitians are illiterate. Why do Democrats want to import illiterate people into our nation? We are already struggling to fight illiteracy here in the low country!!! Taxpayers are already supporting a ridiculous number of people enrolled in welfare programs. Over 90% of refugees use welfare in the United States. Those are statistical FACTS. I have my own children to support! I work two jobs to support my own children!!! I am a single father raising my children and I work two jobs and I don't receive any welfare assistance at all. I pay over $1,000 a month for childcare while I am work at one of my two jobs, seven days a week. I am already struggling to support my family without low IQ, illiterate refugees to babysit with my tax dollars!

6. If Democrats care about Haitians so much, then personally sponsor their immigration. If any of the Haitian immigrants commit a crime, then the Democrat who sponsored them accepts the same punishment as the criminal immigrant and sits in the jail cell with them. Also, Democrats who sponsor immigrants should personally setup a financial fund to pay for all their groceries, housing, utilities, transportation, education, and healthcare. If you really cared about Haitians, you'd support them with your own money instead of stealing more money out of my earned income that I would have otherwise used to support my own children.

7. The Dominican Republic is on the same island as Haiti. Fairly the same people. But teh Dominican Republican has a higher standard of living and is a nice place to visit for vacation. Why? Nothing to do with race. It's because the government is less corrupt and the people are better educated and have marketable skills!

8. Haiti - 219 murders per 100,000 residents per year
Norway - 0.56 murders per 100,000 residents per year

9. Haiti - $739.60 GDP per capita
Norway - $70,812.48 GDP per capita

That is proof that the average Norwegian is not only more intelligent, but is far more productive in contributing to gross domestic product than the average Haitian. Do we want to import productive people into the United States, or some of the least productive people in the entire world?

10. Democrats can't seem to make up their minds. Either El Salvador is indeed a sh**hole and migrants from there need "17 years of Temporary Protection Status" as Democrats claim, or El Salvador is NOT a sh**hole, also claimed by Democrats, therefore migrants from there should be sent home immediately. Which is it? Why are Democrats so wishy washy and try to play things from both sides depending on what garbage policy they are trying to force down our throats?

11. James O'Keefe recorded Twitter engineers and executives, undercover, saying that Trump supporters are "sh*tty people" and "redn*cks" and were shadow-banning them. So here we have Democrats in charge of a large corporation like Twitter who are referring to Trump supporters with racial epithets, and they are recorded on video doing it, and there is no outcry from the corporate conglomerate fake news media cartel ABC/CBS/PBS/CNN/MSNBC/DEFGHIJKLMNOP, but you try to spin this Haiti comment into being something racist despite all economic and crime and educational data indicating that there is indeed many, many things wrong with Haiti.

12. When Democrats cannot discuss policy issues, but only cry Racism repeatedly despite being the political party that, historically, was on the wrong side of racism, then that is indication to me that you are almost as low IQ as the Haitians you want to import. Do you lack the ability to be articulate or discuss political issues without bringing race up as a topic? You do realize that practically all the civil rights legislation in America was passed by Republicans, right? All those statues you want to tear down are of old, racist white Democrats. The 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments were passed by Republicans. The 19th amendment was passed by Republicans. Blacks and women have civil rights because of Republicans. Leave it up to race baiting Democrats with a terrible history of civil rights violations and voting against civil rights legislation that Republicans passed to pretend to be the experts on who is or who is not racist in 2018. I say you are all a bunch of FRAUDS pretending to be morally superior. It's similar to all the Hollywood Frauds who hate Trump being exposed as being prostitutes and sexual harassers. Turns out they are far worse than what they falsely accused Trump of being.

So you want to be subsidized in order to alter your behavior, but you are fundamentally against subsidization unless it benefits you. And that is the perfect fucking summation of why we can't have nice things. If you're going to ramble, please at least be intellectually consistent.
