Re: “Health care repeal spurs queer dance party at Mitch McConnell's house

This patchouli infused hipster hack jumped the shark months ago but somehow the CCP wants to subject their readers to as much bad stream of conscience writing as possible. Last week he was defending an indicted urban terrorist masquerading as a journalist, this week it's the promotion of political groups stalking elected politicians. I get it, you want to highlight a local writer (Beaufort is local?), but for the love of God can't you find someone who is not limited to illuminating national issues with leftist-centric niche rants? Isn't Darius Rucker, Thomas Ellis Gibson or Catherine Coleman available? After all Mr. Woods has proved, repeatedly, that you don't have to be a writer to do these pieces.

Re: “Philando, Folly, and Flags

Mr. Akhyari commits the Fallacy of Association in equating Our Beloved Flag of Dixie with white supremacy and anti-black terrorism. The truth is that only a very small minority of neo-Confederates actually fit this category. He also ignores or is unaware of the fact that there were black soldiers who volunteered to fight in the Confederate military in the War of Northern Aggression, and that there are African-American neo-Confederates today. Consider the cases of H. K. Edgerton and the Black Rebel, as well as others whom I can't name right off hand.

Re: “Philando, Folly, and Flags

Who exactly is the intended audience for your wandering diatribes? I seriously doubt members of this secessionist group read the CCP since their membership would barely fill inside the Folly Boat. And how exactly is this group linked to the actions of a poorly trained Minnesota cop who over-reacted in a traffic stop. Oh, that's right, its the whole America is racist and Charleston is particularly racist mantra you repeat ad nauseum in most of your pieces. So, is everyone who disagrees with your opinion on the Confederate flag a racist hater? I do find this oddly hypocritical, since you ignore that the continual hate filled rhetoric of the BLM movement, you are so eager to defend, is the primary reason police officers of all colors are being ambushed and murdered at an increasing rate, most recently in NYC the other night.

Might I suggest in a future opinion piece you write about something in your own personal wheelhouse. Since you continually bring up and are proud of your Iranian heritage, perhaps you could enlighten us to the historical and continual subjugation of women in that country, how through Sharia law the unfaithful are routinely executed, how gays and transgenders are systematic murdered in your family's native country, and a better understanding of that whole Iranian plan to destroy the Jewish state and exterminate Semites from the face of the earth. Of course, we shouldn't paint with a broad brush about a whole group of people, right Ali, after all not all Iranians are Jihadist terrorist killers, just a small percentage, small, but probably larger that those who might paint Confederate flags on boats.

I agree that we need more Dunkins but not for the donuts - for their coffee. Best ever!

Re: “Philando, Folly, and Flags

If you think white people like the Secessionists are insufferable now, just wait until white people are an actual minority. I have a bad feeling there will be a huge uptick in the amount of domestic terrorism, er, excuse me, "isolated incidents of mentally ill people."

Re: “Warning signs to be added to horse carriages in downtown Charleston

There is plenty of room for carriages in Charleston. It is not cruel, as the horses were bred for work. The signs will only work if folks would just slow down a bit.....and stay off their phones.

Re: “A look at how a growing method of online extortion reached into a West Ashley home

how about the local police going to senior centers and spread the word? And leave a card with a number on it that a senior could call if they had questions. Could save a bunch of elderly a lot of time and money.

Re: “Warning signs to be added to horse carriages in downtown Charleston

Why not have caution signs when boarding the horse carriage? "CAUTION: You're being cruel and lazy. Walk or bike your fat ass around town."

Re: “A look at how a growing method of online extortion reached into a West Ashley home

Three key things that will help you avoid being ripped off in these schemes 99% of the time.

1.) Never take a call from anyone who wants to talk about your computer.
2.) Never have your computer serviced by anyone over the Net, some are legit, most are not, think that's an actual Microsoft site, think again, take it to a local computer store, better service and usually less expensive.
3.) Don't do your banking transactions on a computer over the Internet.
4.) Credit card skimmers are rampant in Charleston, they are everywhere. Always shake a credit card input slot to check for a skimmer, never withdraw money from any site other than your own bank and always cover the key pad when punching in your code.

Re: “Why South Carolina needs more of the North's best doughy export, Dunkin' Donuts

I have been told by a reliable baker that Dunkin Donuts are shipped to their location frozen and then they are heated in an oven. If they were fried at each location they would be more like a good yeast raised donut from the North, which is a very good donut.

Krispy Kreme donuts are made fresh at each location; unfortunately, they are as you said, a sugar overload.

Basically, growing up, it was whatever donut you had available in your area that helps to form your like/dislike for a particular donut.

Re: “A musician's case against the $5 cover charge

I raised the cover to 7 dollars at my club back in January. Bottom line, if you can't afford to pay a few bucks to see a live band, then perhaps you really can't afford to go out. If the cover charge takes in more than the band asks for, I give it to them. I am there for the bar and the food, not the door. The hardworking musicians deserve it. I just don't want to have to pay for a live band out of my pocket. I support local musicians, love to have them but they should also have some sort of following. You can put the cover on your card if you don't carry cash. Also, Club owners expect you to purchase beer from them, not drink your own 30 pack in the back of your truck between songs. You should try to do that outside the supermarket where you purchased it and try to meet beautiful gals and hear live music.
