Re: “Gov. McMaster declares a public health state of emergency to fight opioid crisis

Zee, you don't even address people who are actually in pain and can't get pain medication legally because of this asinine law. I had teeth pulled by an oral surgeon 3 days after being sent by the ER, but after the procedure he informs me he can't write a script because the database won't let him. 15 5mg oxycodones are a weeks supply, while my uncle gets 90 10mg loratabs sent to his house every month from the VA and doesn't even take them. Or my old colleague who hurt his back 2 yrs ago, still on disability selling the 120 pks and valium he gets a month. 600 people died from prescription ODs last yr, obesity killed over a million. You're wearing that asshat like a dress

Re: “Images of breast cancer survivors grace Charleston galleries in 'The Grace Project'

The portraits, from photographer Charise Isis, highlight survivors of breast cancer who are often overlooked, underrepresented, and underserved.

Thank you for the beautiful visibility. Being seen is so important.

Re: “Arrington and Cunningham avoid straying far from the center at Tuesday night debate

I find Arrington to always come from the back. She wanted to drill and now she does not after a lot of mayors from the coast stand behind Joe Cunningham. Arrington seemed like she had ideas or talking points that were all from Trump. She seems to being led by Trump, no ideas or strength on her part. I don't want my congressman to be a yes man to Trump. I prefer Cunningham seems more prepare for the job. Arrington seems to make a lot of excuses, to close to Trump and would not do anything she planned in her campaign. She won't stand up to Trump and I don't like that.

Re: “Bigger wall might mean bigger ladders

Don't confuse Illegal immigration with either Immigrants or amnesty. This country was built on legal immigrants. Not every one who came to Ellis Island was accepted and every one who came came to be proud members of our Constitutional country. NOT to bring the laws they were fleeing with them.

Re: “Black students and faculty at CofC have different thoughts on the presidential search

Sense A, there is no longer a DemoKKKrat party, it has been replaced by a Democratic party which condemns KKK. Now KKK members generally vote Republican.

Re: “How S.C.'s different responses to Florence and Michael reflect lessons learned

Dwayne, I appreciate your article regarding Hurricane Florence and Michael. I have some concerns about your conclusion.

I don't work for state government, but I am a Meteorologist. Hindsight is always easy to grade any decision, including that of making a decision to evacuate, but in the case of Florence and any other hurricane evacuation, decisions are based on potential impacts anywhere from 4 to 6 days prior to landfall. With Florence, for quite awhile there was a threat for a land falling category 3 or 4 hurricane in South Carolina, including the Charleston area. I am thankful that the threat did not materialize, but if you don't evacuate for the potential, then by the time you can confidently say it is coming to the Charleston area, tens of thousands of people will be left in harms way. Certainly not anything that any of us want.

With regard to Michael, landfall was expected along the Gulf Coast and rapid weakening was expected prior to it moving into South Carolina. Hurricane evacuations are generally for salt water inundation and since there was no threat for landfall along or near the South Carolina coast there would be basically no salt water inundation and no need for evacuations. I cannot imagine a scenario where a land falling hurricane along the Gulf Coast that stays well inland would result in widespread evacuations in South Carolina. So no evacuations for Michael verses evacuations for Florence were likely more about the potential inundation of salt water and not necessarily any particular lesson that was learned post Florence.

Re: “Black students and faculty at CofC have different thoughts on the presidential search

I bet that 99% of these students don't care about the DemoKKKrat Party's association with the Confederacy, and punch the button for the DemoKKKrat Party candidate regardless.

Hypocrisy and Inconsistency in their standards.

Re: “Harvard introduces Gullah language class taught by a Charleston-born artist

My grandfather is from James Island. I can remember him code-switching when talking to relatives in Charleston. After literally not hearing a peep of Gullah for many years, I took a trip to St. Helena. Upon visiting the Penn Center in St. Helena back in 09, it all came back to me like a flash! I am very proud of my Gullah heritage. Though I do not speak it, I surprisingly understood most of what I heard. On the trip, I often found myself interpreting/translating what was being said. Well, the lady at Penn Center was intrigued. Mind you, I hadn't heard Gullah spoken since I was about 12 years old. Do some research on Lorenzo Dow Turner. He is the father of Gullah Studies. Unfortunately, Not very many of his books are available. Maybe Harvard can assist in making them available again, especially because they represent virtually the only scientific study of the Gullah-Geechie language. I am aware of a translation of the New Testament, but not the Old Testament. I have a strong command of Biblical Hebrew and Greek and am hoping to become fluent in Gullah. Perhaps someone may propose a mutually beneficial arrangement to facilitate a remedy...

As a white person who has witnessed a lot of of these black gatherings, I am sick and tired of apologizing for shit-for-brains white racists who want to go back to Main Streets that have signs keeping non-whites away unless they are shining the shoes of shit-for-brains white racists.

@Roger Roberts: The caller also claimed that it was a "riot" and that the POC - mostly kids - were "tearing up" the outside of the store. Both LIES.

Re: “Murphy USA is "reviewing" 911 call incident at North Charleston gas station

So they were "calm and peaceful" as they shut down a business while on the property of that business. I'd call the police on them too (though the use of the word "riot" was not necessary).

Vapid, superficial criteria are priorities to leftists. This article is comedy gold.
