Re: “The NYT's on Lincoln Giving License to Rape

Lincoln Executive Orde 100~
Art. 44.

All wanton violence committed against persons in the invaded country, all destruction of property not commanded by the authorized officer, all robbery, all pillage or sacking, even after taking a place by main force, all rape, wounding, maiming, or killing of such inhabitants, are prohibited under the penalty of death, or such other severe punishment as may seem adequate for the gravity of the offense.

A soldier, officer or private, in the act of committing such violence, and disobeying a superior ordering him to abstain from it, may be lawfully killed on the spot by such superior.

Art. 45.

All captures and booty belong, according to the modern law of war, primarily to the government of the captor.

Prize money, whether on sea or land, can now only be claimed under local law.

Art. 46.

Neither officers nor soldiers are allowed to make use of their position or power in the hostile country for private gain, not even for commercial transactions otherwise legitimate. Offenses to the contrary committed by commissioned officers will be punished with cashiering or such other punishment as the nature of the offense may require; if by soldiers, they shall be punished according to the nature of the offense.

Art. 47.

Crimes punishable by all penal codes, such as arson, murder, maiming, assaults, highway robbery, theft, burglary, fraud, forgery, and rape, if committed by an American soldier in a hostile country against its inhabitants, are not only punishable as at home, but in all cases in which death is not inflicted, the severer punishment shall be preferred.

Re: “A DeMinted Constitutional Convention?

"The state-level dominance Republicans presently enjoy is due in part to successful attempts to limit the votes of minorities" as has been ruled by the CURRENT SCOTUS, so only laughable in the eyes of ostriches.

Laughably absurd statement. Democrats can't win at the polls, so claim the elections are rigged. This guy is back to smoking too much weed again.

DeMint has been on the outs for the last year, washed up advisor with no influence. Woods might as well have written about James Buchanan. YAWN.

In my opinion...
Nick Robinson should be Maven.
Adelaide Kane should be Mare.

Everyone else, I'm fine with it...

Re: “End of an Era: Musician Michael Flynn is leaving Charleston

Let me know when you find that Mayberry, I've been looking for it for decades.
All the little / cheap towns I've found are waaaay, out in the boonies, with no way to make what little money you need to live there.

I went today and really need to check this out! The vendors were as interesting as the goods/foods/items they sell. A terrific feeling of Lowcountry goods and sense of community

Re: “Everything you need to know for tonight's Charleston Margarita Festival

The idea of the Margarita Festival being moved to Brittlebank Park sounded like a great idea at first. The feedback from the first event was good. After standing in a long line to get into the event, you then had to stand in long lines in a hot tent, herded like cattle to receive the small samples of the drinks offered. The samples were good, but going from one long line to another to receive it became old and hot quickly. The generic DJ music offered was less than entertaining. If it had not been oversold and a little more attention given to the festival goers overall comfort and experience, it could have been a more enjoyable experience. I would have been glad to pay more for the ticket, just to have had less people and more space to breath. Scratch this one off my list. Live and learn... Cheers!

What offers? If any, it'd be nice to pass that info to the crew you laid off...day of without any notice, rather than the city paper

Re: “David Lee Nelson makes stage four colon cancer look like a joke

Thanks, David! I also have Stage 4 colon cancer and was feeling a little down today. I'm coming up on my FOUR YEAR chemotherapy anniversary! WTH??? But you made me smile, so, for today, that's exactly what I needed.

Re: “How is Charleston Strong?

I don't know why we're "Charleston Strong". Mainly, somebody came up with it and it seemed to strike a chord with everybody else, probably led by the preternaturally gracious response of the grieving families. K.J. Kearney might not be old enough to remember when something that happened to black people did not trouble the minds of white people in Charleston, but I am. In the past, it would have been a "well, that's their problem" attitude and "they" better not make too much of a fuss about it, if they knew what was good for them. I think the fact that whites and blacks felt like this was outrageous to murder innocent people in their church, of all places, rather than it just being the "problem" of the bereaved families and the black community did show us to be a little "stronger" as a community than we were in other times. I've often felt that, if we could get beyond seeing each other as "black" or "white" most of the time, we could see each other as fellow Americans and citizens of this country. In this case, that happened. People who never met the victims of this crime were horrified. People who did know them were devastated. Without regard for race. I like his substitutions for #charlestonstrong; I don't have a particular love for it and those are just as good as any. I just don't see what his problem is.

Re: “Publisher of James Dobson, the anti-gay founder of Focus on the Family, releasing Tim Scott and Trey Gowdy's book

At least the SPLC actually works for a living. Their record of taking down hate groups and standing up for the underrepresented speaks for itself. The FRC is just another parasitic, gleefully divisive, purely partisan Washington lobbying group. Their only excuse to exist is to hustle whitebread sharia law to the tabloid addled culture war dupes.
