He did, he mentioned Clyburn’s totalitarian nepotism-beneficiary daughter who suggested we put government monitors in newsrooms to see how they make ‘editorial’ decisions, she is a fascist. Squishy also mentioned the missing millions at the Clyburn Transpo Center, which has gone a long way towards damaging that school, a school that has already lost its federal transportation center designation, & is on the verge of closure and loss of accreditation. As usual, you cannot engage in any discussion of any policy, event, political appointment, the state of higher education, and the ripping off of people who needed that money the most, the people you and the left claim to represent.

Yeah, She does that. But in this instance, it’s all correct. I don’t give a shit about where he stands on the political spectrum. He’s a nepotistic, crooked, pontificating asshole. See the excellent series of reports by David Wren (largely viewed as liberal by his critics) a few years back detailing all the double-dealing and deception of this sleazy political hack, in the Three Rivers Scandal. btw, he managed to take care of some kinfolk pretty well in the Pigford Settlement, too, as I recall. Jim’s in it for Jim, his family, and his cronies in both parties. He uses the rhetoric of civil rights to mask his true, innately dishonest self.

SCBlues April 10, 2015 at 8:15 am

“Yeah, She does that. But in this instance, it’s all correct”
Well, that is your OPINION Buz and we all have one right? Nobody’s OPINION is any more “correct” than the next person’s opinion. I’ll be honest with you – I have not followed Clyburn’s career closely as I did not live in the South for much of my life and just did not follow it – I will search for the reports from David Wren and do some more reading. This forum loves to trot out certain politicians – I’ll let you figure out the ones I am talking about – as red meat for the folks like Brigid and Tango and their ilk to come on here and spout off a bunch of crapola over and over and over and over – it is just about a weekly occurrence with Clyburn. Fits knows how to play folks – and some folks lap it up greedily – over and over and over. Thanks for your OPINION Buz.

You forgot the James E. Clyburn Pedestrian Bridge over S.C. 277 in Columbia for people that are too dumb to not try and cross and interstate highway on foot. No one actually uses it though and the residents of the four projects (two on each side of SC 277) regularly remove themselves from the gene pool on that stretch of road.

If anyone has ever benefited from gerrymandering, it’s you. You are, and always have been, a massive joke.

I ain’t runnin’ from shit, GT. I don’t hate Clyburn (just as I don’t hate you), but I don’t love him, either (ditto). I was against Jim Clyburn before I had ever read this blog or heard of Will Folks. Dr. Tinubu is a whole other order of human being than Clyburn — who was, in fact, the main reason she was defeated twice. Clyburn did not want her to win, and in fact, supported Tom Rice behind the scenes.

Mizrahim vs the Ashkenazim

BrigidBernadette April 9, 2015 at 10:54 pm

What about Sephardim?

euwe max April 9, 2015 at 11:07 pm

While “Sephardim” literally means Jews from the Iberian Peninsula, it has expanded to describe Jews from Africa or Asia, or to describe those who follow Sephardic, as opposed to Ashkenazic, religious practice. Following the expulsion from Spain, many Sephardic Jews immigrated to Arab countries, where they blended with the local population, making it difficult to distinguish between Sephardim and native Mizrahim

BrigidBernadette April 9, 2015 at 11:21 pm

Correct. Ashkenazi are on one side of my family, who were in a camp and only came here after liberation. Nice to have the brains, not nice to have the genetic predisposition to certain diseases.

easterndumbfuckistan April 9, 2015 at 11:07 pm

Mizrahi are Jews from the Middle East. Ashkenazi Jews are from Europe, mostly central and eastern and originally formed groups in the Roman Empire. Sephardi Jews are from the Iberian Pennsula and orginally formed groups around 1000 A.D. All three groups interpret and practice Judaism somewhat differently and have differing views on the Law of Moses and the Law of the Torah.

Pineapple Twist April 9, 2015 at 11:13 pm

Thanks! I don’t know much about Jews, with the exception they only believe in Old Testament if anything.

easterndumbfuckistan April 9, 2015 at 11:17 pm

I am friends with several ethnic Jews and even a few practicing Jews. I’ve been to Synagogue before. It’s an interesting faith and all of my Jewish friends are extremely intelligent. I even know a retired Jewish firefighter who became a chief. It’s an odd combination but he made it work. He was a good guy too.

Pineapple Twist April 9, 2015 at 11:35 pm

Let me start by saying, I don’t judge a person based on their religious beliefs, but rather how they treat me. I think everyone is entitled to believe whatever they want, but their rights end where another’s begins. I find religion very interesting. I sometimes wish I had more faith in a God who cared about my daily affairs, and while I still struggle with some aspects of it. I think I have determined that I believe in me. The power to change or act rests within me. I don’t believe in an afterlife.

If there is a Creator, he designed me, so he gave me enough sense to determine right from wrong without becoming part of a social club. If there is fault in me, He created me. He knows those faults. I still pray, but it is more of a meditation, more of asking for understanding, trying to understand things I cannot prove.

Please don’t misunderstand me, I know some people require that, it does much good for some, just not me. I still support “some” religious organizations. I am just not part of the social club.

BrigidBernadette April 9, 2015 at 11:44 pm

They follow two books: the Torah and the Talmud. The Torah, also known as the Jewish Bible, contains the primary five ‘law’ Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, then the books dealing with Prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel), and then the books dealing with Writings (Ecclesiastes, Songs). The names are not an exact translation to English in some cases. But most of it is what Christians know as the Old Testament. The Talmud is the oral tradition, explaining the laws, as passed down by Moses. It is difficult and requires a lot of study. And you need to know Hebrew in order to understand it as well. That is whay after regular school, kids go to Schul (Synagogue), to learn their religion.

BrigidBernadette April 10, 2015 at 12:01 am

Also, Yiddish language, which is based on German, is easy to learn and is often hilarious. I lived with my Jewish relatives in New York periodically over my life, so you pick it up. In fact, I just visited with them. Jewish politics is also fascinating, to me, because it is so complex, has so many different branches and parties and schools of thought. The orthodox Chabad Lubavitch, for just one example, have an incredible history. Some of it scandalous. There is a Chabad community in Columbia, very small. That is one thing I don’t like about living here, there is little to no Jewish influence, and it is a big part of my life. Jewish-American history in the 20th century ranges from gangsters to the mafia to the building of Hollywood, Miami, New York, Las Vegas, to the creation of the atomic bomb, intellectual leadership on both the left and right, to radical groups in the 70s, to advances in medicine, just everything has involved a Jew at some point, lol. There are radical groups like the Jewish Defense League, which was headed by Meir Kahane, who was assassinated by a terrorist who was linked to the Mosque that was operational in the lead up to 9/11. Kahane fought the KKK from marching in Skokie, Illinois, sometimes physically, and the next time you watch Blues Brothers, you will see reference to that. Awesome history.

Fits, if we wire all cops with pictures and sound and continue to make it more and more difficult for cops to do their job, then good, quality, highly trained officers are going to shy away from that kind of employment. Then, who’s going to protect the hardworking, taxpaying citizens. What’s needed is effect laws that deter criminals from abusing the laws. Why not enact a laws like if you attack and officer of the law, it’s an automatic sentence of 3/5/7 years in prison (just like robbing a bank); if you fail to obey an officer or threaten him, automatic I year; death if you kill one, etc. We are too easy on criminals, always trying an seek outlet for them for whatever crime. Judges put harden criminals back on the street to continue their sordid, criminal lifestyle. The Charleston unfortunate problem has gotten more attention statewide and nationally than the killing of the young lady in the Columbia bakery who had 4 very young children. Course she was white and Scott was black and that makes a lot of difference today. If more people were worked/gainfully employed and challenge a little each day, it might help things a little. Bet that last sentence with the word “worked” in it scared the hell out of many on this board. By the way, most cops are good and do an honorable job in protecting its citizens but there will always be a few bad apples who abuse the authority given them.

So you say that “Also last time we checked ALEC – like FITS – supports legislation which would wire all cops”.

By “support” do you mean ‘quiet support’? Do you have any evidence to share of ALEC attempting to sway legislation on surveillance of police officers?

“The problem we’ve got is that a climate has been created in the country that’s causing these things to occur all over,” Clyburn said on MSNBC’s ‘Hardball.’

The Koch brothers may be upstanding people in New York but they are funding…

The Koch brothers.
Is there any type of “climate change” that they can’t do?

I wish Big Jim would publicly comment on a lot more controversial matters. The froth spewing from the maws of the mouthbreathers is a wonder to behold.

We have to listen to Joe-Means-No-Jobs Wilson; they should have to listen to Big Jimbo.

“They are the ones that have been drawing up these unfair redistricting plans.”

That’s some world class chutzpa right there, Chief.

LOL – can you imagine I was so passionate about school choice at one time, I called his office. Pretty sure I spoke with him, while it was obvious he didn’t agree with me, listened to my opinions. Maybe I need to make another call…

You’re right –– It is 100% irrational to think that government action that is at least partially designed to oppress minorities (e.g., gerrymandering and voter ID laws) has anything to do with the fact the police (i.e., the government) keep discriminating against (and killing) minorities.

Mmmmmm … Don’t we already have several “fed laws” on this issue?

Beginning with the Bill Of Rights and on through various Supreme Court decisions regarding police standards of conduct (Miranda?) … plus all of the local/state unified rules of conduct …

I don’t know how decent, honorable and brave men and women in law enforcement do their job now. And this screw-loose grand stander want more laws? Between him and Sharpy Sharpton we might rather consider generic, national restraining orders against thes showboats.

They call them ASBO’s in England–Anti-Social Behaviour Orders. The person receiving and ASBO has to stay away from public places. It’s usually a yobbo who gets an ASBO. It is high time we have something similar here.

Those kinds of absolutes re social interactions are heard by a jury … as it should be.

I asked a shrink friend what the definition of “crazy” was. He said anyone who was anti-social was crazy, but please don’t quote him … :-)

Ya’ll realize that SC cops shoot someone, on average, every 8 days.

Mr. Clyburn should take the opportunity to say the following:

“My black brothers and sisters,

While it is true that there has been a rash of shootings by white policemen of black young men, we have a part to play in this also. While the establishment tries and convicts the murderer in North Charleston, we should teach our children to properly engage and be engaged by the police. After all, there are two things common in all these shootings: White cop, black man, and the black man improperly resisted arrest.”

But he won’t. He is a running dog lackey of the Democrat party!

Jimbo has been relegated to a butt boy since zombie face fell out of power. He is left with nothing to say or do so he watches the rat face Al and has figured he can become relevant by speaking shit.

Jim Clyburn is a race baiting idiot that feeds off of racial tensions. Unfortunately, Todd Rutherfors is set to follow in his pathetic footsteps. Listen to Rutherford race bait and you will see that he is a disciple of Clyburn.

While I agree Clyburn’s contention is tenuous, it is not as tenuous as FITSNews knee-jerk reaction would you have you believe. The only difference between a trigger-happy vigilante using a “Stand Your Ground” false claim of self-defense to excuse murder and a trigger-happy cop using a false claim of self-defense to excuse murder is that one has a badge.

Lots of cheap shots here blaming Clyburn for his gerrymandered district. FACT CHECK: the Republican dominated SC Statehouse draws and gerrymanders South Carolina’s Congressional Districts. How those districts are drawn, particularly Clyburn’s, is almost indistinguishable from the white supremacist Dibble Plan during Reconstruction meant to isolate and marginalize the African-American vote by packing as many African-American voters into one supermajority district. While our Republicans of today might not be card-carrying members of the KKK, they are still very much implementing and benefiting from white supremacist gerrymandering.
