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: “Chef Emily Hahn announces her next Charleston restaurant project, The Getaway

Congrats to Emily!! I watched her on Top Chef. And I happened to have run into her when we were having pedicures!!! Of course no one in the place recognized her except me:). I told her I loved the show and we chatted. She was so nice. I told her I would come to her restaurant, which I did with a friend. I told the server to tell her we were there. We got the best service. And the food was delicious. So I can't wait for Emily to open up her new digs!!!

Re: “The Westside gains new breakfast spot with announcement of Daps

My suggestion if they want to do research on great breakfast and lunches??? Go to Los Angeles. That is the MECCA of breakfast/ bakery restaurants and cafes. I go there every year just to eat!!! I just got an email from Zagat to go to the 10 best places in LA to go to for breakfasts! One, which I have been going to for years is Aroma Cafe near Studio City. Omg!!! Lines to get in. Great celeb citing's too. Another one in Sherman Oaks is Jinky's! On Ventura. Has been there forever. Oh, one more that is a bit newer. Sweet Butter Cafe!!! If the owners of this new restaurant go to these places and some others in LA? They can become millionaires! I wish I had the capital to open a place myself, as I would do it in a nano second.

Re: “Dear Moderate, It's your fault

It really amazes me how you turn everything around to make it the white man's fault. First of all, you start with DACA, and then turn the article around to "black" people?? Are you serious? You have the audacity to say that white people tell you to go back to Africa. But, you could all of you go back, when you would have no idea where in Africa you come from since you have been here for generations and none of you speak any of the African languages, and only speak English, and there are so many countries, that you would have no idea what African country to go to. Well, then why do you insist being called AFRICAN AMERICANS???? You are AMERICANS! I am first generation German American. I am more pure German, than you and the rest of the blacks in this country. You do not see people like myself insisting to be called German American. Do you??? So, you just admitted that none of you should be referred to as African Americans. It's hogwash.

As far as DACA. You are so off base comparing yourself to them. These are mostly Mexican kids, who all speak Spanish and come from predominately one country. How you can compare blacks to these DACA kids is totally ridiculous. And to start bringing in the Civil War is nonsense. And the guy right above my comments trying to belittle the guy from the North is so off base thinking you can compare DACA to blacks. And, for him to stoop to describing Trump as having an orange Cheeto face, speaks volumes about him. It is obvious the lack originality, because he got that description from watching American Horror Story, which btw, will probably drop in ratings? Why?? Well as the great Michael Jordan has said " republicans buy sneakers" !!!!

Trump never said ALL Mexicans were criminals and rapists. Let us get that straight. He is doing the right thing, by throwing it back to Congress. And enough of this white privilege garbage. You keep writing this all the time. People are sick of it and the more you write about it, the more you will keep losing elections. Why don't you go around America and go to the slums and find out why nothing has changed in the last 50 years and they are all run by your party???? Detroit, Cleveland, St. Louis, Baltimore, New Orleans, South L.A. Philadelphia. Every inner city is run by Democrats. and by Black mayors. And you have the nerve to blame all of this on "white privilege"? You better wake up and smell the coffee.

I was born and raised in NYC and lived there my whole life. I never heard anyone say to a black person, "move back to Africa". But, i did hear Jesse Jackson call NYC "HYMIE TOWN". I saw how Al Sharpton instigated riots in Crown Heights and had a Jewish boy killed. How he lied about the Twana Brawley case and got two black lawyers disbarred because of it. Should I go on?

Let us get to the issue at hand...DACA. I say, let these kids stay. And I voted for Trump. It is not their fault. It was their parents. BUT, there has to be compromise. If these Dreamers want to stay, there is no such thing as a free lunch. The parents have to leave and go back to their country. Most don't speak English anyway. Or, if you think that sounds soooo cruel., then you cut off any federal and state assistance, and that holds true for the next 3 generations. By doing that? You don't need a WALL! As far as college? They will have to pay what an out of state students pays if they go to a college in their own state. And they have to wait 20 to 25 years to vote. But, it's worth it, because they get to stay, and they get their green cards and eventually become citizens. If, we allow the parents to stay? They will be forced to learn English. We definitely cut off federal assistance. and none for the next 3 generations. We have E-Verify. Then you don't need a wall. They will stop coming. No more freebee's.

It seems by this article, most people do not agree with you at all. Perhaps you should do some self reflection, instead of blaming us white folk. You sound like Hillary Clinton. Coming up with one excuse after another, and never taking any accountability for your own actions. Just remember, America voted in a Black President. And for your information, he will be building a zillion dollar house on Martha's Vineyard. Ya want to talk about "white privilege"??? Ha! He ain't hanging out with any "African Americans" Hmmmm.

Re: “A 'bleeding' veggie burger lands in Mt. Pleasant next week

Now I wonder if it is the same as the Impossible Burger that I saw on the Walhberg's reality show. They were in SF and tasted a veg burger that tasted exactly like meat. The company is located in Redwood City. They took Paul Walhberg to the facility. They showed him how it is made. They told him currently they sold only to a small amount of accounts, but were gearing up to expand. They sent a sample to Mark as he was golfing at Pebble Beach. Yes, Markie Mark has come a long way. He took one bite and could not believe it. It tastes exactly like beef!! Not like a veggie burger. That's the point of the whole thing. Not to taste like a veggie burger. He asked the head of sales if they needed an investor!

I'm still waiting for a Wahlburgers to open in Charleston. They said after tasting this Impossible Burger, they want to put in all their chains. So I am very very curious if this is the same product.
