Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

lynnar, thank you for proving YET again what either Lunatics or True Enemy within you are. So you say you are a Jew and "Europe has The worst health care."

1st, Europe has a much better Healthcare results in EVERY measure compared to USA as you can see here:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Health_syste…

Do you see that bizarre Upside DOWN bar in that chart vs other OECD Countries? That is Healthcare results of USA and how much it is costing vs other OECD Countries. As you can see USA has the worse Healthcare results by far compared to other OECD Countries, but as bad as that is, it gets WORSE, since USA is also spending twice more than OECD Countries to have this WORSE among all OECD Countries Healthcare results!

2nd, it is not just Europe that has Government run Universal Socialized Single payer Healthcare (NHS), so does 100% of other Developed Nations, including Israel the beloved Nation of Republicans, Obama/Clinton Democrats & the right-wing Media and you being a Jew, here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Healthcare_i…

But as a proof of what True Enemy within you and your lot and Republicans are, you oppose NHS for American people, resulting in 50,000+ Americans being KILLED each year due to denial of Healthcare due to pre-existing Condition alone, etc. while your beloved Israel has NHS.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

Palestinians are Semitic people too, so if Ellison/Democrats are pro Palestine, how can they be anti-Semitic? Stop throwing words around just because you hear them used on TV. Think about what they mean.

And, by the way, criticism of Israel is not defacto anti-Semitism like many want to believe. There are legitimate human rights issues that need to be addressed.

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

As much as I dislike Sanford, I'll hv to vote for him. I did not vote for him in the primary. I wanted him out. The way the Democratic Party has shifted to the Far Left shows they are no longer the Party they were 30 years ago. Even 20 years. The fact that they wanted Keith Ellison as their Committee Chair? And now is their Deputy Committee Chairman? Sorry. This man is an anti Semite. Has ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Being a Jew, I have found the Democrats are much more pro Palestinian. The Left on college campus's support BDS boycotts. My parents were victims of Nazi Germany. I know what a true fascist is. Trust me, Trump is no fascist . I love how uninformed people use the term so loosely and refer to Trump as Hitler. Ivanka married an Orthodox Jew and converted. Eric and Don Jr. Both married Jewish women. Hitler took guns away from the German people immediately, once he became Chancellor. Goebbels was head of propaganda. Ya think Trump is in control of the press? Ah, don't think so. Jeff Bezos, a huge Lefty, owns THE WASHINGTON POST!! He seems to be taking over the world, and all of you think Trump is the fascist? Ha! Worry about George Soros. He owns most of the media. NBC, ABC, CBS, CNN ,MSNBC , NYT, Washington Post, LA. Times. Every major newspaper is liberal, and all the liberals accuse Trump of being like Hitler. People should brush up on their history.

I used to be a democrat. But in good conscience, I can no longer vote in that party. Republicans are not much better either. It's all out of control. All of D.C. Need a good kick in the ass. And guess what? They got it. Trump was voted it. And the more the democrats continue this witch hunt, they will keep losing elections. Instead of taking accountability of running a horrible candidate, they blame Trump and the people who voted for him. All I heard for a year from CNN and MSNBC was there was no way for Trump to get 270 Electoral College votes. Like parrots, repeating the same thing. Until the day after the election. Then all of a sudden because CA had more popular votes, Trump really didn't win. Give me a break. But, that's the dem's for you.

Europe is a mess. Thank God we don't live there. I lived in London. Forget it. The worst health care. U get what u pay for. Hopefully they will work out this healthcare mess. There is tremendous fraud too. So much bureaucracy. There were 2700 pages to thing. Really? Tons of added taxes. That were not needed. Obamacare is imploding. So something needed to be done. I did read you will be able to buy insurance over state lines. That is a good thing.

Re: “Support your neighborhood cafe, or you may lose it

Coming from NYC and being in the food business, 88% of restaurants go out of business in the first year. It's a very difficult business as we all know. I do agree we should support our neighborhood food joints. I hate Starbucks. We can't compare downtown restaurants to the out lying neighborhood restaurants. I never ate at Park Cafe because I didn't live in the area. But, from reading the posts, it seems they lost sight of who they were. They forgot the locals. You can't do that. I had been to Rutledge Cab Company and, I agree, not the same. Don't fix something that isn't broke. In fact I had a bad experience there. There were 5 of us and one ordered the dessert fondue. They had cut up fruit, pretzel and macaroons. I took one taste of the macaroon and told everyone not to eat it! It tasted off! I asked the waitress to come over and told her it had a weird taste. Like a pickle. ( I hv my degree in Pastry). So she goes to the kitchen and finds out that the staff stored the macaroons in the savory bins, and it was where the pickles were. She apologized. But I thought, how many people had eaten that the way it was!!!!
Point being? No one cares. And as someone pointed out, hard to find good people. I worked in NYC restaurants, and I know.

But, you have restaurants like 5 Loaves that is always busy. Why? Neighborhood place. Great, straight forward food. They cater to the neighborhood. Lost Dog out on Folly Beach. Yes, busy during the season. But, they are pretty busy off season. Great, straight forward food.

I say to myself, why don't we have more places like that? Why not a Greek Diner? I lived on James Island and there was not a decent place to go to. Actually Crust is pretty good. And they have managed to stay in business. I'm now living temporarily in West Ashley and there is nothing! At least to my liking. Ok, I went to 5 Guys for a burger. Big deal. Panera's? These are chains. Starbucks? Yeah, there is one off Sam Rittenberg. But are there any really good neighborhood restaurants? No. And, I'll be moving to John's Island. Forget that. Wild Olive and Fat Hen( which I don't like at all). Wild Olive is ok. But that is it! It's a gold mine out there and rents are still decent.

So the person who posted: good food, good prices and good service is doable. But, I would add consistency. If I love a certain dish, I want to know that every time I go, it's going to be the same.

In Manhattan, there are restaurants that have been in business for 30-35 years. There is a reason for that.

Re: “Support your neighborhood cafe, or you may lose it

Ultimately, when talking about successful restaurants, there are at least three key markers: good food, good service and fair prices. Rodney Scott BBQ is successful because it meets (at least) two of the three (and, arguably the two most important: fair prices and good food quality). I think that if a restaurant wants to be successful, they can make up the difference in income from charging less for better quality food by the higher volume of customers this inevitably produces. It's risk/reward math, and I think it's the sure bet that can survive the ebbs and flows of our community's economic vitality.

Re: “The Charleston RiverDogs expertly trolled Tim Tebow all weekend

To a Evangelical Christian mocking their faith , or what you call "good natured ribbing " is the same thing as someone making comments about your wife or daughter in a salacious manner . You just don't do it if you have any decency or class. And then apologizing afterwards when the person knows that none of you mean it. That's slap in the face #2.

Agree - we actually really enjoyed our food but felt like we were eating a nice dinner in a sports bar? I had somewhat low expectations for the food though and was pleasantly surprised. The salmon and the Sides of carrots and macaroni were all excellent.

Re: “Support your neighborhood cafe, or you may lose it

The neighborhood cafes have to be comepetitive with all the big name restaurants I order to get any kind of labor help. That is the biggest problem in this industry now. There are too many restaurants opening and not enough back bone to support. ALL the restaurants are crying for help. Both front and back of the house. It's a big bidding war to get kitchen help. That's what's upping the prices on your menu. The labor!!!

Re: “First-time candidate announces Democratic challenge to Mark Sanford by standing against Nancy Pelosi

This article NOT once lists what are some of the Policy positions of this Mr. Cunningham!
And there is the problem in USA, Republicans and Democrats run on Shtick that:
"They are against career politicians..." and not much else.

When the FACTS are that: Republicans: Trump, Ted Crazy, etc. are either complete lunatics or WORSE! And Obama/Clinton Democrats are a FRAUD.

About TEAPublicans being lunatics: ABSOLUTE proof of this comes from conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc., because ALL these Conservative parties are 100% for their Government run Universal Socialized Healthcare (NHS), what Republicans call "Socialism" or "Communism" and oppose. So either ALL Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. are "Socialists or Communists" or Republicans in US are complete lunatics. AND why ALL Conservative parties in Europe, Canada, Australia, Israel, etc. are all 100% for their NHS? Because it SAVES 50% on cost of health care while giving health care to all their People (FREE) for Taxes they pay.

About Obama FRAUD: ABSOLUTE proof of this comes from them passing a Healthcare plan proposed by Ultra right-wing of the Republican party (aka Heritage Foundation), which plan lead to RomneyCare, but it is NOT even as Socialized as RomneyCare! As a result of which Healthcare plan Obama passed has made little improvement in the catastrophe that Healthcare was and is for 100-Million+ Americans.

Yet Republicans & Wall Street Media are playing such Con Job on US, to call this plan they proposed, a watered down version of which Obama Fraud passed, this exact opposite of NHS, to be "Socialism"!

Re: “Support your neighborhood cafe, or you may lose it

I definitely agree about how important it is to support your neighborhood businesses. But I also agree with those who say businesses need to identify with the community they are serving. The last time I had dinner at Park Cafe was well over a year ago. We were the only ones there, the dinner was fine, but not stellar, and we paid as much as dinner at FIG or HUSK would have been. That just doesn't compute. The setting and ambiance are low-end casual dining and that's what the menu should reflect. I think they turned away a lot of us early on, with the high dinner prices, a la carte menu items at lunch (making it hard to spend less than $20 per person unless you just eat avocado toast) and not very good coffee that was a buck more than any other coffee shop around.
I applaud their local focus on parking lot attractions, etc., but the menu seriously needs to reflect the neighborhood. And by the way, not all of us who live nearby are renters paying insane rent and mortgages. Some of us have been here a long time and would love to support an affordable neighborhood cafe.
