Re: “Inspired by Burning Man, Charleston's Emergence aims for "radical inclusivity" and a little "sex magick," if you're OK with that

Something I found interesting in reading about Burning Man's history was how it started as "anything goes" but evolved to have quite a few rules. For example, after someone got driven over and killed, they had to regulate motorized vehicles. They have a volunteer police force sort of organization to enforce these rules. It's a good analogy for human society in general.

Re: “How to Rid Your House of No-See-Ums

We have been dealing with this for 5 months, I must be the one who produces the most co2 because I get bitten non stop. We have tried everything but were having pretty good progress with dollar store ammonia and water. I put it in a pump sprayer and spray everything from ceiling to floor. Instant kill. Our biggest problem is they live through the dryer and if I get my ammonia mix with a little scrub brush they instantly let go of fabric. I have tried soaking the clothes in the mixture but that doesnt work as well. We have thrown all rugs shoes and clothes away, but the few we kept Im having real success so if I knew what the nest looks like I could get a handle on this. Does anyone know what the nesting area looks like? Oh by the way you will be amazed on a clean shirt or sheet etc how you see and feel nothing but just a dip into the ammonia solution how many hundreds of bugs pop out. Unreal how we live with these parasites! Good luck

Re: “Ghost hunting at Charleston's Old Jail

I grew up in downtown Charleston. So did my parents and grandparents. Like any old city, its full of ghost. You just learn to live with the unexplained cold spots and noises. They never hurt anyone.

Re: “Could 2019 be the year South Carolina lawmakers approve medical marijuana?

I would like to see cbd products covered under health insurance. I would also like to see them mainstreamed and available and accessible to all. Utilized by traditional medical care and practices. The current pain meds are inadequate and dangerous. Especially for long term and chronic pain sufferers. We need a radical overhaul and transformation of how we approach pain management. No one should be denied relief because of economic barriers. We are fighting for medical marijuana when many can't even access and products because of the expense.

Re: “Charleston will hire a "racial reconciliation" manager, but some worry "nothing is gonna happen"

Compared to China our infrastructure looks like it was all built in the 1970's. They are taking bullet trains to their solar powered smart houses! New highways built 5 years ago...then when you come back to South Carolina you dont even need a delorean to go back 30 years in time! Wow it's the 1970's again outside of poogans porch!
Until you try parking the f****** delorean. Then there it is! The shiny golden achievement of our socially engineered modern charleston society! The parking meter takes credit cards! WOW! Magic! MAYBE the wizards in charge of our government will alsonstop letting companies charge 3.50 to take a CREDIT CARD PAYMENT over the phone like it is still 1989.

Con artists! Give the people their money back.

Re: “Charleston will hire a "racial reconciliation" manager, but some worry "nothing is gonna happen"

Penny pinching parker ticket prices to pay for this kind of thing makes charleston look backwards and trashy. We NEED those parking nickels. because it appears to be the basis of what we would show the world is a high economy. We dont produce anything but beurocratic pull your donkey out of a ditch on Sunday kind of fines and penalties (for just being here). We produce No oil. No natural gas. No energy. Nothing but garbage like parking tickets and scotchman styrophome cups into our oceans. Do you think were going to be able to continue to sell the story of slavery with no infrastructure aside from war machine factories? Good luck. Your a bunch of morons.
No wonder places like Dubai have taken off while we remain horse and buggy drawn. Your arrogance to creativity has thwarted our middle class pioneers in technology and sold them over seas to apple!
We dont modernize anything here but the parking meters! NO SOLAR. NO UNIVERSAL FREE HEALTHCARE. NO FREE EDUCATION. OUR SYSTEM SUCKS WHEN I PAY 300 DOLLARS TO THE CITY FOR THS RACIST SHIT I HAVE NO PART OF, AND FAILD TO MODENIZE INTO THE FUTURE ASIDE FROM SECURITY CAMERAS AND PARKING METERS.

Re: “Charleston will hire a "racial reconciliation" manager, but some worry "nothing is gonna happen"

They pinched me cause the national news shut down Charleston for a month when it didnt even rain. What a bunch of children believe what they see on TV when it is not even rain imng outside and the weather channel is desperately looking for somewhere that always floods to portray as a national disaster so sceng would get federal relief money while we get the finger. This means they are robbing the city as it is going bankrupt! Even if it's not in the news all the money in this town is all smoke and mirrors aside from like 2 billionaires. Watch charleston go under in ten years now cause these assholes rushed in and greedily bought up the real estate. And seized respect in our communities with money.

Just keep working harder Charlie horse and there is a glue factory in it for you waiting at the end.
As long as you serve your greedy soul less corporate tax dollar masters

Re: “Charleston will hire a "racial reconciliation" manager, but some worry "nothing is gonna happen"

The people are superior to this inferior outdated flooded infrastructure of this city. The working class are better than you beurocratic order taking parrots. You call it a career when they dont even let you think for your selves? Your not men or women. You are grown ass children who are racists that cant realize what's right from wrong. I'm tired of babysitting this city

Life isnt fair so neither should employment be. It should be based on your intelligence.

Re: “Charleston will hire a "racial reconciliation" manager, but some worry "nothing is gonna happen"

Who gave you asshole the right to rearrange Charleston land like an amusement park and boot people with residential parking passes on SATURDAY when I dont even owe that much money?
Criminal bastards know I cannot dispute their tickets (which are incorrect) on the wekends.
Loser lowlife criminals. The parking authority needs an overhaul, and I didnt consent to parking tickets being raised in price so substantially over the course of one year.

Maybe you wouldnt need to be such criminal assholes if you had rent control on the retail locations so you wouldnt put your businesses out of business. Your scarring away their customers with high tickets AND killing the cities sales tax. What a bunch of greedy morons.

They are ruining Charleston and people should be treated better than this when they visit. Not taxed to death. This place doesnt offer what NY offers to be charging mafia toll or parking prices.

Ya I'm going to pay 12 dollars in parking to eat at IHOP? You all can blow me, but your just a bunch of back woods morons

Re: “Trump rushed Clemson to the White House months earlier than usual for his fast food shutdown stunt

The other poster is on point and would be my response. The article is clearly a mixture of fact with lots of conjecture. And if you as journalists can't tell the distinction, you need to find another line of work.

Re: “Trump rushed Clemson to the White House months earlier than usual for his fast food shutdown stunt

The players look happy in the pics. No one got hurt because of this. Hunter Renfrow said he'd remember this forever because of the food (said he didn't remember what he had to eat last time there). The players toured the Oval Office.

Those are facts.

Here's conjecture: It was probably the best time to have the team come visit due to the shutdown. If Trump wants to politicize this in a town where everything is politicized by everyone, who's surprised and who cares?

I didn't vote for Trump (I'm a fan of Kasich), and I think that he's an abomination. But the left, and in this case of the CP, far left, the conversation better start to evolve into finding solutions that most Americans can agree on, instead of the usual complaining and finger pointing about Trump. The coastal late night shows and news outlets are so overcome by their hatred that they dedicate their existence to bashing him. The people in the middle of the country that elected this guy are going to elect him again if the elitist mouthpieces don't veer to the middle and find a very dynamic (think JFK) candidate.

Come to think of it, this would probably be about the time that JFK Jr would be making his run. Wouldn't that have been nice?

Re: “Clemson's title makes things even harder for South Carolina's smaller football schools

Wow, talk about a victim mentality. You have to search hard to find how Clemson's dominance could in some way be detrimental to anything in this state (with the exception of Will Muschamp).

KJ, you are wired to complain. Happy you.

Everyone gets the attention and adoration that they deserve. When SCSU, USC, Furman, Wofford, or any other SC school dominates their competition as has Clemson, then they too will get the love.

KJ's take on this is interesting because it speaks to a larger issue. He's lamenting the fact that Clemson through their brilliance and achievement will somehow get an unfair share of the attention, love, and all that implies (money, TV revenue, booster money, etc). SCSU and the other SC schools will somehow suffer because in the zero sum world of love and adoration, they won't get their fair share, and that's not right. As he says - "the rich get richer".

Here's an idea, KJ. How about SCSU develop a program that dominates their division and goes on to play for championships year after year? I'll bet you that if and when that happens, SCSU will get all the glory (and all that implies) that's due to them because that is what they have earned.

Why is this so hard for people to understand?
