Re: “Pain was the catalyst for institutional change at Porter-Gaud

Stephen Colbert is a "luminary"? I thought he was a comedian.

Re: “Mark Sanford rode a tiny motorcycle while forcing BuzzFeed reporters on a tour of his plantation

Whine much Ms. Reporter? My goodness. And could she attempt to hide her contempt for the former Governor? Apparently not. Real professional.

And who can't ride a 4-wheeler!? Surely he knows what breaks are, right? And this guy was driving the car? Good grief!

This entire "interview" is amateur hour. Is BuzzFeed even a real news source?

Re: “Has Trump kickstarted a new wave of feminist activism?

To even vaguely equate the aftermath of the AME Church shootings to the post-election blues is disgusting beyond belief. Does the liberal echo chamber, that is apparently the readership of the Charleston City Paper, have no shame? News flash: more than half of the voters in South Carolina (and the US for that matter) woke up Nov. 9 not with your shared sense of unfounded dread and despair, but with a renewed hope for America and the return of common sense over Political Correctness and an end to the Progressive agenda running amok. It might help if you actually talk with people who do not share your collective worldview before alienating half of the Charleston population.

Also, the Tea Party movement started while George W. Bush was in office. It had nothing to do with President Obama, except for the fact that he continued to spend our country into bankruptcy (doubling the National Debt). That, after all, is what the TEA Party movement was protesting. Taxed Enough Already.

Third, I think it's important for women to be involved in politics. It's not a "man-only" arena, but this "march" on Washington is really protesting the wrong problem. If women are upset about the election results, it's not Donald Trump's fault. They should look in the collective mirror. Fifty-three percent of women didn't vote for Trump. If they had, Hillary would be President-elect. Are 53% of all women "anti-women"? I don't think so. Perhaps Hillary was simply a flawed candidate. I'd bet Bernie Sanders supporters have a few things to say about that.

Re: “The truth about the founding father of big government in America

Brad, quite simply, yes. The North had no right to force the South to stay in the "Union". I frustrates me to hear, still today, that so many people believe the Civil War was fought over slavery. It wasn't. States Rights were the main reason and we are paying the price for the loss of those rights today. The federal government believes it owns the States. In fact, in freeing the slaves, what Lincoln realy did was enslave us all to the Federal g'ment.
