Re: “Trying to make unlikable people laugh

Bushwick, they didn't teach you reading comprehension back in Brooklyn? In what way did I imply anyone should wave a flag of any type? I was merely commenting on his profiling by stereotypes, not just on the bikers, he even threw in a razz at TV preachers. Whether I agree with him or disagree is beside the point, I was criticizing his better-than-you attitude.
Joe - judging by your invitation to buy a ticket I'm sure the motivation for doing that gig was simply the paycheck. If you want to challenge someone, you don't charge them admission. As for my girlfriend - shhh! - don't let my wife of 30 years know! And sorry, I'm not interested in your "show." Any time I feel the urge to see a douche I can go to Piggly Wiggly and spend 59 cents on a bottle of vinegar.

Re: “A female reporter responds to Cam Newton's sexist comment

Whether you are female, African-American, LGBTQ, an immigrant or any other not-white dude, you should NEVER have to "get used to it". This cycle of disrespect will only wane when we have an administration that shows dignity and respect for others. Until then, we may have to suck it up. But get used to it? Hell no! I know I'M better than that.

Re: “Trying to make unlikable people laugh

If I was truly judgmental I wouldn't even do a show like this. A couple people tried to talk me out of it.
The fascinating part was the common ground I found with them. Maybe we'll never be friends but it's still interesting to see where we can meet in the middle I guess.
I think the rebel flag is bullshit. But I was amazed at their willingness to let me fuck with them about it. Myself and the other two comics were the only people in the bar/compound not wearing a rebel flag.
Also, Dale and Old Man, I think you should totally buy a ticket to my show tonight and really let me have it.
Just purchase a ticket for $10 bucks and really exercise your free speech. Or, plan it out more and come to next week's show. Come display how much smarter than me you are (after reserving your seat for you and your never gonna happen girlfriend) at a show. You'll show me I'm sure.

Re: “Trying to make unlikable people laugh

Ima, so you think that Joe should start brandishing confederate flags? Seems a little outdated considering that the Confederacy was defeated in the Civil War. Maybe Joseph should also wear Al-Queda tees and Nazi pins, if we are to celebrate losers.

Re: “Trying to make unlikable people laugh

Bushwick, I think Dale's point was that Joe, here, is a judgmental douche. I would guess that he needs to change just as much as he thinks his audience did.

Re: “Charleston Rep. Savrinakis calls for ban on bump stocks in wake of Las Vegas shooting

If you really want to reduce the number of gun deaths in America, we need to concentrate on these areas, not the random violence of mass shootings, because you will never stop them. You can't. Take away guns and they will find something else, like a truck. A man rammed a truck into a crowd in the U.K. killing 84 people just a few months ago. Their Parliament is not calling for truck control.

The largest categories of gun deaths are suicide, endangered women, and gang violence.

Older men, who make up the largest share of gun suicides, need better access to people who could care for them and get them help. Women endangered by specific men need to be prioritized by police, who can enforce restraining orders prohibiting these men from buying and owning guns. Younger men at risk of violence need to be identified before they take a life or lose theirs and to be connected to mentors who can help them de-escalate conflicts.

I cannot take credit for this though. I actually read this from a person who supported stronger anti-gun legislation, but then educated himself about the problem, and realized it will not work the way people think it will.

I include the link to the article here for those who might be interested.

Re: “How to Take Your Landlord to Court

My landlord just gave me a 30 day notice to vacant due to repairs that she will need to make on the house. She used safe and health hazard. However, she really sold the house and due to close on 11/14 and she has to make some foundation repairs to pass inspection do to their finance company. We have a year lease with her up next April. I live in S.C. Can she legally just hang a notice on the door for me to vacant due to her having to repair issues? Thanks,Jessica

Dale sounds like a real cool dude! Joseph didn't even get to answer his questions before Dale called him a loser. Self-loathe much, Dale?

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.

Re: “Trying to make unlikable people laugh

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!
