Re: “With landlords using the courts as de facto bill collectors, North Charleston's eviction rate is the highest in the country

Why can't builders of apartment buildings build buildings with lots of tiny apartments that can be really affordable for the poor, who might be working in minimum wage jobs and can't afford the rising rents in the existing apartments? The article says that now in North Charleston the average monthly rent is $900. How can the poor afford it? So they get evicted and then they have to live with relatives or friends, because they can't afford the rising rent any more. Rents are rising faster than inflation, maybe because builders think they can make more money building apartment houses for the middle class and upper middle class than tiny apartments for the poor. I don't understand it. Too many big apartments are being built.

Re: “Here's what happened during Wednesday's Broad Street carriage crash

Maybe mule Trump does not spook easily, unlike our president Trump, who gets spooked easily by reports in some media etc. So our president keeps attacking media and others.

Re: “The Agenda: Graham pushes deregulating predatory lenders; Gowdy as 'reluctant congressman'; USC women's run comes to end

Neo, this is not about banks lending money. This is about the pay-day lenders, who charge extremely high interest rates. That is why it is called predatory lending. Banks charge reasonable interest rates. So their lending is not called predatory lending.

Re: “S.C. lawmakers tap conservative voters with anti-abortion bill

Women who have an abortion are choosing the ethical choice of making sure that no unwanted child is born. It is not ethical to the embryo or fetus to make it be born an unwanted child.
