Re: “S.C. congressman driven out by tea party says he voted to impeach Clinton for less serious issues than those facing Trump

Bob Inglis has been a Never Trumper since early 2016. Desperate attention seeker. Pathetic.

Re: “Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg joins city leaders in vow to uphold Paris climate agreement

Good for you John Tecklenberg ! Your voice is badly needed . Thank you for pointing out the physical reality of changes in our environment and specifically, the City of Charleston.

Re: “Charleston Mayor Tecklenburg joins city leaders in vow to uphold Paris climate agreement

He is acknowledging the physical changes that are happening on a global level and to deny this fact is absurd . Of course there is a connection to the agreement . The dollar amounts of money that are being spent by our government is tremendous and that money needs to have a roadmap attached to it . Trump missed the point entirely and needs to qualify his position as the American people do not support this action . We all need to speak up now !!!!

Re: “The Charleston Lie

I was asked to name black owned restaurants, those were some that I have visited in the past. Perhaps some have closed recently, there are plenty more opened, I don't have a list in front of me.

But it doesn't really matter if I provide names or not, you just want to argue a question of what the word "large" means. I seriously doubt any of you guys would give a black owned restaurant the time of day and could even name one, let alone eat there. So spare me your faux outrage.

Re: “The Charleston Lie

Foghorn, some of those restaurants you listed like Backman Seafood are permanently closed, some are not black owned, and the rest of them are in North Charleston.

Re: “Restoration effort reveals new look inside the Hunley, but mysteries still remain

The crew obviously died from lack of breathable air....drowning men would not have been found at their stations, they would have been crowded around the hatch trying to get out!....I don't think that people who are drowning calmly sit and wait for the water to cover them...these are the only 2 options, eliminate one and that leaves the other...."Considering that the crewmembers were found seated at their original stations within the submarine, these experts suggest that it is unlikely that asphyxiation was what led to the sinking of the Hunley."...I'd say that drowning is unlikely.

Re: “How a Charleston bar led to one of the Cold War's most damaging spy rings

Is this that house near 'Blue House Road' that fronts the interstate. It sits right alongside 78 near the 'Bizzy Bee' and some Mulch place?

Re: “The Agenda: Sanford doesn't buy 'He's new' defense of Trump; Revisiting Townville; SCE&G solar program

Us deplorables had enough with the Washington elitists running our country. The Clintons, the Bushs, the Obamas, the Kennedys. We watched as they took away our freedoms, raised our taxes, and turned our nation into a 3rd world cesspool. With Trump, we took back control.

The Liberal elite do nothing but bleed the middle class dry. My tax rate is 40% and my healthcare is now $700 per month thanks to Obamacare. My car insurance is still just $25/month (thanks to Insurance Panda), but if you look at Democrat strongholds like Detroit and New Orleans, where car insurance will run you $300+ per month, its easy to be pessimistic about the future of the United Socialist States of America.

It's been a long time since we had a President who cared about us. Save our country, President Trump! God bless America!

Re: “The Charleston Lie

S.R. Singletary - So you want me to list for you all the black own restaurants, clubs, and businesses in Charleston? Why don't you do your own homework. Start by stopping by Rodney Scott's on King and he'll fill you in. Grab some BBQ while you're there, best in town

Re: “Sorghum & Salt is building a dedicated fanbase one scoop of "olive dirt" at a time

I am new to Charleston and Sorghum & Salt has become my favorite restaurant here so far! I just moved from Tuscaloosa so I was familiar with Tres Jackson's work before. Although Sorghum & Salt is very different from his Tuscaloosa restaurant Epiphany, I am still impressed and satisfied all the same.

Re: “The Charleston Lie

The pedicab peddlers should acquaint themselves with Jane Jacobs' Death and Life of Great American Cities, written on the 1960s, and reissued on its 50th anniversary. Mrs. Jacobs, who was horrified by the destruction of neighborhoods for urban "renewal" in the mid-twentieth century, advocates for the importance of diverse neighborhoods as the lifeblood of cities, no matter economic status. it is the inner connectedness of the neighborhood which cannot be ignored. As an added bonus, she is a wonderful writer and observer of what a neighborhood comprises.

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

Not sure why his sharing so much bothered her. Or why his talking to everyone was a bad thing. And her tattoo under a Hanes men's tee was lame. Her tone, her attitude, her attire, her opinion...just fell flat. And I am a fan of Buzzfeed and a hard core liberal.

The wrong people were sent for this report. They failed.

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?
