Caveat Emptor, Caveat to legislate everything...or so it seems. *sigh

Re: “S.C. Supreme Court paves the way for pavement on Captain Sam's Spit

Don't build on the beaches, the marshes, such sweetness, you'll regret all your losses as the storm surge tosses...all your possessions won't mean a thing with a wall of storm water, fifteen feet or taller crashing on your roofs, swelling up your homes, Posiedon don't you hope you still got your bones! This is a travesty.

Re: “'Keep Folly Folly' Means Nothing Anymore

Jenny::: Vigilantism, where was that mentioned? I said peacefully. I said, "chill out or I'll get a mediator/popo..." I have a right to defend an offense against my children's and my personhood. Sorry, I am not Ghandi or Mother Teresa, though I do strive. "so many contradictions in all these messages we send...someday we'll all learn to be still."

Re: “'Keep Folly Folly' Means Nothing Anymore

Raised three kids every weekend (yes, divorced dad), during the 80's and 90's on 10th and E. Cooper. Dug the big trench, set up the umbrella and cooler, played the guitar, drank a few beers, taught surfing and swimming to my kids. Some times, a few younger kids/college/hs/young adults even, would get out of hand, ie. play lousy frisbee knock over my beer, play lousy soccer, knock over my child's drink, pick up a towel, mindless of the wind and get sand in my and my children's eyes, curse out loud, ignorance must be bliss. I would inevitably get up and calmly at first, say..."Hey, you guys want to cool it a are disturbing this beautiful place a bit." They, for the most part chilled. If I had to do it again, I was a bit more vehement, say "Sicilaino Passionne". "Guyz, chill out or leave or I have to get a mediator, (think police/or me). Citizens need to standup first for themselves peacefully, courteously, then if that fails, get the law involved. Now, many people don't want even to "get involved" for fear of whatever. It helped I was the first IRONMAN of Charleston and could take ANYONE in the water, yet I lived there, it was my beach, and I enforced my rights peacefully. When good people stand by and do nothing when bad people act, you contribute to your own demise. I got more skeletons in my closet than a Grateful Dead album jacket, but I will stand up for truth, justice and the American way, which is obey all good laws and work to change the one's needing change. Well written article...well written viewpoints, but I'll pay for wristbands, I'll fight to play my guitar (unplugged) on the beach, I'll pay a weekend fee for extra popo, though it's a shame I even have to. Put up the boy scout oath on a sign over the Folly Bridge. "A boy scout is trustworthy, loyal, helpful, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty and brave, clean and reverent, (Please do this on Folly)." And remember our wisest Founding Father Mr. Frankiln's words..."God, must love mankind, or he'd never have invented beer." CapnBarnaclePhil
