Re: “How to defeat the Post and Courier's paywall

Hey!!! I went fishing the other & caught a couple of little minnows...without bait & but with some common sense. The libs bit & reputed with their practiced script. It's so apparent that their thought pattern is like a mental disorder. Common sense dialogue is not recognized.

Re: “How to defeat the Post and Courier's paywall

I've been a circulation director for a national newspaper for 23 years. Newspaper revenue has been on the decline since 2008. The Post & Courier pays their employees to write articles.They need to charge their readers in order to meet their expenses.I would guess this author likes Bernie Sanders...you know free stuff! To take this authors intended logic a step forward, I imagine he wouldn't mind if his readers visited his publication's office & helped themselves to office supplies.
Sort of like redistribution.

Re: “Duke prof posts racially inflammatory comment on NY Times story

Im not buying into the argument that because black people were so horribly treated, they are now unable to step up & make progress. I'm 63 years old, living most of my life in a nothern city. I've had loads of years interacting with black people. My family are mostly educators. The consensus is, that many blacks don't have a family unit, many have no interest in learnng & many are not interested in intergrating. Another point, why were so many holocaust survivors & their offspring able to do so well? As for Hough's comments about asian americans; I worked with a Cambodian man for 23 years. He, his wife & 3 month son hid in the jungle for 3 months after seeing their family & village slaughtered by the Khmer Rouge! That family all have good jobs, own homes, nice vehicles as well naming their bi-racial grandkids american names. Stop with this idealogical bs & talk from experince!
By the way, i volunteered for 2 years tutoring innercity youth.My hope was to help them at an early age see that they can better themselves throigh learning. Un fortunately the mother or grandmother saw my efforts as a babysitter!

Re: “Charleston intersections are overrun with panhandlers

I agree. I visited San Francisco last year & stayed in the financial district. There were panhandlers & homeless everywhere. Plus the public nudity in Castro section. It all was very much a turnoff & I now have 2nd thoughts about ever returning. I do have sympathy for folks, but know there are public services & resources available to help. It's disturbing to see able-bodied young men & women panhandling in our area. It makes me wonder why & how they came to that circumstance.

Re: “Far too many are having the wrong reaction to Rolling Stone's Dzhokhar Tsarnaev cover

Geez, everyone has it wrong, but you've got it figured out! How is it that you're writing for a free weekly & not onto running some big company, solving all their problems! Small minded nit-wit!
