Re: “The Agenda: Sanford says Trump "partially to blame" for rhetoric; S.C. getting $31M from VW

I guess Sanford thinks he has always set a fine example.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I have a few things to add to this. First, Thomas needs to find a woman that is a bit older more mature and not kathryn or landon. Second, i believe kathryn has some type of mental disorder because she is too volatile and her moods fluctuates too easily. She should be monitored constantly. Third, craig is getting on my last nerve with his inability to see what he's causing in his own relationship and he needs to mind his own business. Lastly, i hope shep gets his life together because he seems to be a nice guy but has no responsibility and nothing to do or look forward to

It got mean like this too with the W.Bush/Cheney Karl Rove campaign and no one was exempt not even other republicans running.The only difference was that W.Bush wasn't doing the hate rhetoric like Trump does.

In my experience and opinion, I lived long enough to know while it appears the devil is winning then something happens that ends it, even in politics and especially politics and who is always wrong ....the republicans and why? That almighty dollar and power.

With coverage like this no one needs to watch the show. Although I did love the look on Thomas's face when Landon put him in his place so glad I did not miss that. Was glad Landon had a more normal time for herself. Thomas is too mean to have a women. What he said to Kathryn was so uncalled for. You cannot want a women to put you on a pedestal when you cannot treat her right. You love your booze and partying more than you are capable of loving anyone. Booze is the oldest story of self destruction there is.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

This is so incredibly amazing to read. After the classless mocking of Tim Tebow who has done more good in the world than anyone associated with the Riverdogs and who has also done nothing but good for your team by bringing in record crowds, the Charleston Riverdogs (and you as the writer of this article) have proven out what has come to be accepted in our country; If you are Christian you are fair game for unbridled ridicule and mockery. I can tell you one thing for a fact, if Tim Tebow was a Muslim or a Hindu nobody in the RiverDogs organization would dream of pulling these types of antics. All the criticism the RiverDogs are receiving they deserve. What a pitiful testament and a black mark on a beautiful city. Someone needs to apologize and trying to back-pedal and try to say they were not doing what they so obviously where doing. What a shame.

And people in hell want ice water. Don't think they will get it any time soon and I hope the same for your 'critiquer' who was having such a hard day and thought she would go forth and be bold in the world by criticizing someone who makes us laugh. If she's not laughing, nobody is!
Landan .you crazy girl! Just take one thought in your head and try to keep it there for more then 5 seconds. This changing your story and your mind everytime a seagull cries will have no one betting on you. Not even the gamblers who bet on how long a chicken can go without a head. ( by the way, I haven't heard from your dad about that land job. Again, I can send my resume through email ON MY COMPUTER so there's that.)
Thomas is bereft He knows that is the last time two women will ever fight over him even if he does continue to ignite the flames with stories of his being taken advantage of by a 21 year old...
Whitney's mother needed two more martinis after watching Whitney put the fan in the Maharajahs hand. As if the Maharajah would actually fan himself. Has he learned nothing!

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

You done goofed, Riverdogs and CCP: you see because Mr. Tebow has branded his faith, that means any slight against him or his brand is a slight against Christianity. Never mind that he isn't the most religious player from his days at Florida, nor the Denver Broncos, nor even the Fireflies... nobody cares about those dudes because they haven't built the brand or... ick they pray in oof... Spanish.

So you made fun of Jesus and all those who follow him. Shame on you!

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford says Trump "partially to blame" for rhetoric; S.C. getting $31M from VW

I was in a local pharmacy getting a few things yesterday. I was in line and there was an elderly lady in front of me working on her transaction. Two young men came up behind me in the line and one uttered an expletive. The clerk asked if they could not do that in the business and that's when the men really started. "We can say what the fnck we want to. This is America", said one. Then the other chimed in with, "Yeah, you can say anything you want. There's nothing they can do, this is America."

I was appalled but not surprised and the elderly lady in front was speechless and trying to get her things together and get out of there quickly. You just don't know when something is going to erupt and I also left quickly avoiding any contact, which surely would have incited an incident.

Indeed, this is America, however, that behavior is Trump's America. I, too, am glad that we can say anything we want to in America without prosecution but I am also glad that I was taught to have respect for others, especially the elderly. In today's society, interactions like this are cause to be afraid for one's self being. I was and I know the lady was too.

We are now living in an uncivilized society and our Presidential role model is fanning the flames with his dangerous and lying rhetoric.

Re: “Lessons from the history of America's secret police

Glad to know that you and only you know what Comey was referring to, as no other publication has put forth this theory. As for admitting to a mistake, I don't recall Obama ever admitting to one either, but credit taking he was excellent at.

Re: “Confessions of a Southern Charm Newbie: Boxcutter on a Silver Platter

I love your columns! I do watch the show, but I look forward to your recaps just as much, if not more, than the actual episodes. I think your column is perfection--everything from your homages to film/music/literature to your effort to pinpoint a theme for each episode, even though it's clear that the Bravo producers themselves do not put that much thought into the show. Even your photo captions are hilarious. Don't let the opinion of one person muffle your zaniness. I literally laugh out loud when I read your writing, and I think a lot of other people do too.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

We were at the Sunday game and almost everyone in the stands took pictures and cheered everytime he was at bat. Sounds like whoever wrote the article is trying to stir up trouble. They even did a video tribute to him on Sunday and thanked him for coming out. From what I saw even riverdogs fans enjoyed having him here. We surely wouldn't have gone this weekend if he hadn't been in town. If he was harrassed I'd like to be the first to apologize. That's not the way we do things in Charleston.

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

What blows my mind is how few bars/restaurants actually throw all those bottles and cans in a recycling can instead of the trash when it seems like just about the easiest damn thing to do.

"Expertly"? Does charlestoncitypaper.com have middle school boys running their editorial process, because that's the only group I could imagine who would label such low-class antics as "expert." I guess we can look forward to seeing words like "doody" and "fart" acclaimed as profound word choices from you guys.

Really? Light hearted fun is what you're going to bitch about. Making fun and joking around is different. Paul please take the stick out of your ass and see they were having fun. I figured adults didn't get a booboo lip because of little jokes.

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

Here is my issue. Too often servers, bartenders and others are holding the glass / cup etc by the top / rim. I DON'T want to drink from a place where someone just had their hand. Just this weekend I watched our server grab two glass and hold them at the top as they filled them with our drinks. When the server got to the table I refused both glasses and asked for clean. I watched this happen again and again I refused and when asked what was wrong I explained. The server had an attitude for the next 15 minutes and being concerned about what may have been happening to our food we got up and left...

The fans "troll" Tim Tebow just by showing up for games they would not otherwise attend so "troll" away. I'm sure TT doesn't mind the attention.
