Re: “Rep. Jeff Duncan's "Hearing Protection Act" is tone-deaf

Ron, You realize that a suppressed pistol is not going to fit in your pants, Right? Most subcompact pistols used for concealed carry will not accept a threaded barrel and the standard length for a functional suppressor is 7 inches, add that to a 4 inch barrel on a 9mm pistol and you have an overall length of 14 inches. As far as sound suppression, gunshot = 145db = Motorhead concert, suppressed gunshot = 115db = Bruno Mars fans. Outside of a concert the suppressed gunshot is still detectable by ShotSpotter and will damage your hearing if unprotected.

Ali, Let's really call a spade a spade, It's not about Guns, It's about Control.

Re: “Homeless and hungry at America's most beautiful College

When you are "coming out" to your family and friends, don't be surprised if they say "they knew" already. And if you don't have the money or resources to attend a very expensive, beautiful, college, how about TEC? No poly sci degrees there. Only ones that will get you a job and require a lot of effort on your part to get the degree. Please don't put the burden of trying to adjust to a new life and receive some worthless degree on others. Time to put on your big boy and big girl pants and get on with whatever life you have decided to live. And can someone tell me the last letter in that ever-increasing abbreviation of "other" life styles? It is starting to look like the end of the "Old Macdonald" farm song chorus.

Re: “International African American Museum now accepting contributions from small donors

I'll have to see exactly what road the museum is going to take with regard to the politics of the messages they are going to send. The existing museum, and most of the sites where the "history" of the blacks are discussed are so twisted and biased that they are not any fun to visit. And to say that all blacks are of African decent is just not true. And the fact that many, many slave traders were actually black themselves is not ever addressed. I suppose the museum will be another way to get tourists into Charleston, but spending the millions of tax payer money through the county, city and state without any voter input seems a bit unfair to all the other projects that would also bring tourists to the state. I wonder what the percentage of minorities that are real money-spenders for days at a time is? And where are they going to stay? The hotel rates for a room within 20 miles of downtown are astronomically high.

Re: “Eating local isn't always better

The breadsticks are the only good thing they make. My 6 yr old can make a better marinara. The food is bland for Italian food and that's kind of hard to do. Granted it taste as good as most, not all "insert local town name" house of pizza. There's gotta be a better example for the stories front-runner like the cracker barrel bit is spot on

Re: “Book of Mormon announces lottery tickets for next week's run at NCHS PAC

This is all complete lies! Mormons are sweet and loving people! You are making me want to cry. In fact I am crying! I'm a Mormon! You don't make fun of Catholics! Not that you should. This is so mean and uncool! Read the real book of Mormon. See real missionaries. Feel the spirit and be happy! This is what I call lies because people won't expect a religion. I live in America. I have my freedom of religion. This is just making me sad. Why? Just to make money. This s wrong! So wrong. Mormons thousands of us came strait into the storms and helped thousands of people. One church leader who is in his late 80's was out there helping. Think about this, and ask yourself is it really wort it to buy some tickets to a play filled with lies and nonsense?

Re: “Looking back at the origins of Charleston’s most controversial monument

Being that the statue really dates back to 1850, it's an artifact. What the mayor is doing with interpretive signs saying that we do not support Calhoun anymore is probably the best solution. Plus, what else will CofC stoner kids climb on when the statue is taken down?

Re: “Former Dixie Furniture building approved for demolition

I've never looked at that building other than the street level... it is appallingly ugly. The false openings are a bit of polish, sure, but yikes.

I share the sentiment about parking impingement although hopefully they'll put in loop driveway that keeps check-ins off the street. Actually what I hope is that they provide parking spaces for their own staff.

Re: “Charleston History Commission grapples with reconciling Calhoun’s legacy and bigoted beliefs

Tom Martin, Of course there will be CofC students in the demonstration, I'm old enough to remember all too well the chaos of Kent State, and the uneasiness of the times. College students and protest go together like white on rice. Would you consider Charlottesville a riot or a march?

Not to be daft, but where do you subscribe to get these emails? My inbox is flooded with press releases "wine and cheese tasting, new keg tapped, Mediterranean pop-up." I love food too and would be interested in last minute pop-ups.

Don't try and rationalize your point with Ron Liberte, he doesn't care about any ones point of view if its not marxist or a Democrat talking point.. I will say this is the only time he would probably agree with me.

Re: “Former Dixie Furniture building approved for demolition

It always has been a rather unattractive building. Now we are going to transform the site into another hotel? Yeah, you thought parking was impossible on that part of King St? Wait until they get the mandatory number of spaces "excused" and we have another damn hotel on the street.

I like to think that Jeremy has the dismissal by Gellar printed out and framed because being the antithesis of what that woman believes is a great ideal to reach for any person with a functioning heart and brain.

I'm sorry he had creative differences with TEDx. He would have been a great addition to their lineup. Hearing things that make you uncomfortable isn't always bad.
