Re: “Word nerd is irritated and irate

I really hate and despise when people have nothing better to do than berate others for using multiple or various adjectives and words for the same or similar words. Such as: I'm so mad and angry when people use double negatives!

You are so jealous and envious that others have a life that it's (proper use of a contraction here) rediculous!

You are stupid and idiotic if all you have to do during your day is to correct those that leave their participles dangling.

P.S. - Your missing the meat of the story and are worrying about the gristle. WHY?

Re: “Nude night dippers will meet angry junk munchers

Alas, it seems that multi-tasking with 5 individuals and posting my viewpoint just isn't my strong suit. Thank you CHADAMAN for pointing out my faults. Yes, the word should have been "there" vice "their". At least Sark was able to pick up on the gist of my meaning.

Thank you CHADAMAN for self-appointing yourself as the wordsmith police for the Charleston City Paper. What would we ever do without you?


P.S. Was my post dripping with enough sarcasm or should I add more?

Re: “Nude night dippers will meet angry junk munchers

I don't really get it...many say this post is lame or threatening. Should the idiots that invaded private property be allowed to stay? Hey, I've an idea! Why don't the dippers bring their family and kids along too! After all, it's about coexisting, right?!

WRONG!! That attitude is as much Socialism as I've ever heard. The property belongs to the poster and not the dippers. The owners alone, and not anyone else, have the right to say who can and cannot use their property and when.

By the way, if I find you on my property at night without my permission the coroner will find you their in the morning. NUFF SAID!

Re: “Bling happy momma hoards beer and pretzels

This seems like the perfect opportunity to air my beliefs on just how the system should work.

1. Investigate claims for assistance. This includes a full inventory of assets owned by the claimant. Don't ask how many people live in the residence. Check with the Post Office to see haow many people receive mail there. Stake out the house for awhile to see how many people "stay the night". How many cars are "always" in the driveway. This can provide a good idea on whether or not a family really needs assistance or is trying to outright lie to get money.

2. All persons applying for assistance should be made to work for it. All the jobs that are currently being done by convicts and others at no cost to the local government can be made to do by the recipient. If a medical condition exists that precludes work, the recipient will have to see a doctor of the Governments choosing. This will separate the people that are willing to work and not want the free handouts from the lazy, irresponsible, I want everything handed to me for free, members of society.

3. This will keep the convicts in jail where they belong. Don't do the crime if you can't do the time (qoute the Sparrow)!

This is just a small start to overcoming the fraud, waste, and abuse created by people believing they are "entitled". Race has nothing to do with it. You will find people trying to "scam" the system from every single walk of life.

Re: “MMA battles for a place in the Palmetto State

It's about time the MMA arrived in the Lowcountry. Contrary to popular belief, the MMA is not about the Gladiator days of the Roman Coliseum. It is full contact karate meets boxing meets wrestling meets chess. Make one wrong move and it's checkmate brother. It's the love child of Muhammad Ali and Steven Seagal. The action moves from slow and tedious in the early seconds to explosive speed in the blink of an eye.

These men and women are not backyard bullies that fight to get their jollies. They are highly trained atheletes that compete for the passion. They do it to let themselves know that they can indeed do more with their lives than just sit on the front porch sucking down mint julips and chatting up the passersby.

One of the biggest problems in North Charleston has been the issue of people on the streets with nothing better to do than cause problems. This sport builds discipline, comraderie, and trust. It builds good people with good value systems. Wouldn't that alone be a starting point for some of the youth of today with aggresive tendencies?

Just food for thought Lowcountry!
