    Man, don't get me started. It's tough to find decent Mexican food in St. Augustine.

    We used to go into Mexico, past Tijuana, and down into Puerto Nuevo, which is about 40 minutes south of the border. You could get a lobster lunch for 12 people, complete with margaritas, for under $150. Sadly, though, it got to the point where we stopped going across the border. It just became too dangerous.

    Good Mexican take out all over San Diego...

    Stayed in Greenville, SC for one year to take care of my adopted mother. She moved there after living in Chicago and Joliet most of her life and it was nice there.

    As for Islands my favorite is the Big Island and enjoyed the weather, hiking and surfing without the Big tourist crowds and it was cheaper...

    If that was the case, I’d hate to see what they called the worst city. Between the crooked cops, racial strife and extreme lack of culture, I wonder when they have time to vote.

    I don't know what city you're talking about, but it isn't Charleston...

    There is no objective way to legitimately determine such a ranking of cities.

    The police were kind enough to bring him Burger King….

    North Charleston police officer demoted after sharing racially-charged video with Charleston Thug Life blog

    Then of course there is this famous image of justice being served…

    This is the city people are applauding?

    Well let's see...

    Dylan Roof wasn't from Charleston, he was from what we here call The Midlands... Up around Columbia... The Shelby police provided the little bastard with food, yes Burger King... a Whopper I believe... so they would not be accused of depriving the turd of his rights... You see, there are things called laws... The police have seen and dealt with the fallout of what's known as "post-arrest rights violation checklist" which details circumstances under which an individual could later claim their rights were violated, one of which is a withholding of food:

    Again, did I mention it was the Shelby, North Carolina police department?

    Furthermore, when the little shit committed his heinous crime, the city did not lose its shit like so many other communities... Ferguson...


    North Charleston and Charleston is definitely not Charleston, not even close. Two different mayors, two different police forces. And again, the city of North Charleston, predominately Black, did not lose it's shit after the Walter Scott shooting.


    So, in conclusion, I suggest you learn a little bit about what it is you're going to be talking about rather than simply regurgitate the pablum you are fed by your news sources...
