Re: “Charleston senators buoy offshore drilling ban in state budget

. YOU should NATIONALIZE THE NATURAL GAS SUPPLY THEN! THAT WILL KEEP PRIVATE CORPORATIONS OFF OF OUR SHORES! PLUS IT WOULD ENSURE THE MONEY WOULD GO TO THE PEOPLE IF WE HAD TO USE IT (FOR OTHER THAN WAR). As long as NOT A PENNY GOES TO THAT FAKE FEDERAL RESERVE DEBT THE NATION HAS. NOW THAT WOULD BE A WASTE OF THE PLANET EARTH!

That natural gas is under our dominion. We should reap the benefits NOT DOMINION

Re: “Charleston senators buoy offshore drilling ban in state budget

Look at kuwait! Rich rich rich rich. The POOREST Kuwaiti gets free education, health care , and social security off of the nations oil supply. The POOREST Kuwaiti would put the richest BMW driving asshole in charleston to shame. The government of Kuwait is able to do all of this for their people and more because of oil. We are turning up our nose at billions and billions of dollars that doesnt have to go to war. It can go directly to us, and our NEW SOLAR INFRASTRUCTURE! We aren't building energy effective trains, solar infrastructure, OR COMPUTER PROCESSORS!!
THE TOP SHELF PROCESSOR HAS BEEN THE I7 PROCESSOR FOR LIKE 5 YEARS NOW!
OUR COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY ISNT ADVANCING AS RAPIDLY ANYMORE. YOU should NATIONALIZE THE NATURAL GAS SUPPLY THEN! THAT WILL KEEP PRIVATE CORPORATIONS OFF OF OUR SHORES! PLUS IT WOULD ENSURE THE MONEY WOULD GO TO THE PEOPLE IF WE HAD TO USE IT (FOR OTHER THAN WAR).

Re: “Charleston senators buoy offshore drilling ban in state budget

Look at Chelsea Manning! They tortured a US soldier, and turned him into a woman because he exposed COLLATERAL MURDER when the US ARMY WAS MIRDERING JOURNALISTS IT DIDNT LIKE, JUST LIKE KASHOGI IN SAUDI ARABIA. OUR GOVERNMENT IS JUST LIKE THE SAUDI ARABIANS IN MURDERING AND INPRISONING JOURNALISTS AND TRUTH TELLERS!

They are taking our freedom of speech through Facebook censoring and OPERATING WITH NO BiLL OF RIGHTS or protection of our FREEDOM OF SPEECH. THEY CONTROL AND CENSOR US WITH ALGORITHMS TO PROFIT OFF OF WAR AND SLAVERY! WE WANT FREE SOLAR panels YOU INEFFECTIVE LIARS. YOU CANNOT STOP THESE CORPORATIONS FROM WINNING EVENTUALLY BECAUSE YOU CREAT A HIGH DEMAND FOR THEIR PRODUCTS BY NOT GIVING US A FREE SOLAR INFRASTRUCTURE. THEY HAVE MORE MONEY THAN YOU AND OUR GOVERNMENT, AND THIS LAW IS JUST A SPEED BUMP TO THEM. CREATE SUCCESSFUL SOLAR ALTERNATIVES NOT STOP INDUSTRY FROM COMING HERE. YOU MORONS DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY HIGH PAYING JOBS, AND INDUSTRY YOU ARE LOSING WHILE THE CURRENT ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE IS NOT WORSE MOUNTAIN TOP REMOVING FOR COAL?

Re: “Charleston senators buoy offshore drilling ban in state budget

No talk of free solar panels for homeowners? This is just a band aid fix. We need energy bad enough to kill iraqis with nuclear weapons and depleted uranium, but we dont want to modernize our state for our own basic energy needs? Blood for oil, and poverty for SC families so you all keep joining the military at 15 getting shipped off. Once you sign that paper they can tell you to murder people or go to MILITARY PRISON with the real sick fucks. They put our soldiers in harm's way to steal natural gas and oil, and you think this will stop them from getting this law changed in 20 years?

We want FREE SOLAR.

Re: “Elizabeth Warren vows to stop offshore drilling "on day one" at Charleston stop

The kingdom of heaven probably already reincarnated G W Bush and McCain into these human children so they will feel the pain from this forever. I had my lights knocked out and have been out of body. This life is just a blink of an eye! I know this! They are waiting on you the minute you die, and they WILL outnumber overpower and torture you until the planet heals from this radiation. How can Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats talk about a balanced budget when they are nuclear bombing the planet! The radiation is spreading! We are all being irradiated by our government!
They USED NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN IRAQ= CALLED DEPLETED URANIUM. THEY EXPOSED PUR SOLDIERS TO IT LIKE AGENT ORANGE AS WELL. THEY WANTED TO KILL OUR SOLDIERS FOR BEING WITNESS TO THEIR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY!!! ALL THESE OLD SENATORS AND AMMUNITION MAKERS WILL BE PUNISHED... THE IRONY IS THEY WILL BE RELIEVED WHEN THEY ARE TAKEN TO HELL WHERE THEY ARE NOT AS HORRIBLE TO THEMSELVES. THEY WILL BE TORTURED IN THE HEAVENS ON EARTH FOR THEIR OWN GOOD! THEY ARE BAD PEOPLE! THEY ARE RACISTS WHO WILL FIND THEIR NEXT LIFE A DESSERT FOR THEIR ACTIONS!

Re: “Elizabeth Warren vows to stop offshore drilling "on day one" at Charleston stop

It's better than using depleted uranium to bomb the world! We are causing children in Iraq to be born without heads! The radiation is spreading they are finding out! The world is going to end our GENOCIDE MURDERING IRAQIS. YOU PEOPLE DID NOTHING GOOD IN IRAQ. HORRIBLE PUNISHMENT, DEATH, AND PAIN IS WAITING ON PEOPLE WHO USE NUCLEAR WEAPONS IN THE AFTER LIFE!! DONT BE FOOLED BY PATRIOTISM WHEN THEY SACRIFICE OUR SOLDIERS TO HELL FOR WAR CRIMES.

We can turn the chitin that makes the palmetto bug skeleton that can be turned into chitosan through a production plant and that way our plastic is biodegradable. Plus we can turn in roaches like old coke cans for a nickel! Lol

Re: “Elizabeth Warren vows to stop offshore drilling "on day one" at Charleston stop

Charleston should start exporting our roaches to the world! Isnt there delicious shellac to obtain for apple coating in their wings? Beatle wings are how they make jelly beans and coat apples already so there has to be a market for palmetto bug wings! That wax on their wings (shellac) is worth a fortune. They dip coat apples in shellac so they dont go bad.

Palmetto bugs could be a big boost to our economy.. am I wrong? What's the science on this?

Re: “A note from City Paper publisher Noel Mermer

Noel, I am so sorry to hear about your diagnosis. I think of you so often during a work day especially when I am negotiating a sales contract! I learned so much from you during my time at CP. Lessons I will never forget. Those were some of the best times in my life. One of your many strengths is your ability to focus on the goal, never letting anything take you off course. I know you will tackle this disease the same way. I am 100% certain that if anyone can beat this you can. Sending you both love, light and prayers. Stay strong my dear friend.

Re: “Elizabeth Warren vows to stop offshore drilling "on day one" at Charleston stop

Solyndra anyone? Green energy efforts have been for the most part a failure, and without government support collapse under their own weight. They're the Emperor's new clothes for the Democrat candidates. Lots of talk, but nothing there and we're all supposed to pretend that they are. Most people who live along the East coast don't want wind farms to ruin their view of the ocean any more than they want oil rigs. Solar farms eat up acres and acres of land and cause environmental problems just like wind farms do, and are neither reliable or sufficient. For the foreseeable future oil and natural gas will be our primary sources of energy, and its far better to be independent in those areas than to shut down all exploration and therefore production to make us depend on other countries for our energy resources. That puts us in the middle of the troubles in the Middle East and elsewhere and forces us to have to intervene. Back a few years ago people like Elizabeth Warren were shouting 'no blood for oil' but still she would support policies that put us back into the situations that the left loves to protest.

Elizabeth Warren was on point from issues on global warming to off shore drilling and had a great answer to how she is and will support the LBGT community. Thank you again Elizabeth you're wonderful!!!!

Re: “Yes, senator, the ox is still in the ditch

The partisan tribalism ship sailed at least a decade ago. The zeitgeist of the Democrat party has significantly changed since Mr. Hollings left office; someone trying to run with Fritz Hollings' platform today wouldn't get past the Democrat primaries because he would not be progressive enough.

Re: “100 days of serving the Lowcountry

Zee; PAYGO won't cause a shutdown because sequestration is either ignored or they waive PAYGO for a particular spending bill, and as I mentioned, unless the increase in spending exceeds a certain percentage PAYGO is dormant. It is a political stunt and little more. We'll be able to stop spending on missiles and bombs when everyone else in the world trying to do us harm stops. The deficit is a big deal because it must be paid. If it isn't, then it creates debt. Each year's deficit adds to the debt. As the debt grows, it increases the deficit in two ways: 1) the interest on the debt must be paid each year. This increases spending while NOT providing any benefits. 2) higher debt levels can make it more difficult to raise funds. Creditors become concerned about the borrower's ability repay the debt. When this happens, they demand higher interest rates to provide a greater return on this higher risk. In the fourth quarter of 2018, the U.S. debt-to-GDP ratio was 105 percent. If the debt-to-GDP ratio exceeds 77 percent for an extended period of time, it slows economic growth. Every percentage point of debt above this level costs the country 1.7 percent in economic growth.

Re: “100 days of serving the Lowcountry

I really like that you wrote this article and informed us of things I personally was not aware of. This was the first time I had ever heard of the PayGo thing (that paygo name seems very catchy). However, I am a little concerned that eventually it would cause a government shutdown.

When the first continental congress used to meet during revolutionary days back under the rule of England they used the articles of confederation to organize until they actually found the laws they made for the meeting halls PUT THEM IN A BOX, and prevented their organization from reaching its goals of ACTUAL REVOLUTIONARY CHANGE AGAINST ENGLAND! That was why they had to do the declaration of independence and scrap the old meeting hall government of the first continental congress and started the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!

I dont think we should continue spending billions on missiles and bombs dont get me wrong, but what if this paygo system ends up putting politics ahead of action rendering the government EVEN LESS EFFECTIVE?

CANT WE JUST GIVE OUT FREE SOLAR PANELS TO HOMEOWNERS INSTEAD? I DONT CARE PERSONALLY IF WE HAVE A HUGE NATIONAL DEFICIT AS LONG AS ITS ACTUALLY GOING TO US FOR A CHANGE AND NOT WEAPOND MAKERS AND ISIS, BOMBS, WAR, AND GENOCIDE.

Maybe subsidize food cost instead of dole it out with food stamps? The harris teeter coconut milk costs the same at the scotchman unrefridgerated! Price gauging for seasonal profits anyone?
