Charleston SC seems to be keeping up with the other Charleston. (Or Charlestown)

If you've got public schools paid for by taxpayers, you're in a socialist nation. If you have public roads paid for by taxpayers, socialist nation. If you've got public defense (police, fire, military, coast guard) paid for by tax dollars, socialist nation. If you're in a nation that has nationalized or localized delivery of services that are not paid for by users alone, you're in a socialist nation- the only question is how socialist. As I see it, we have the military pay to protecting the shipping lanes for our fuel needs which makes up very socialist. In a capitalist nation, the people supplying the oil would pay for their own defense force.

Not according to that map -- Although one can make the case about both Charleston, SC and Charleston, WV, there's no corresponding dark spot in the Eastern Panhandle of WV, where Charles Town (two words) is located (not far from Harper's Ferry and Shepherdstown, btw).
Politics these days is show business. Elections are Dancing with the Stars with consequences. ~Rue Bella

(About fame) Living for likes, shares and follows is a form of validation. The question is whether it is also the source of our self esteem. If it is, we’re screwed. And, culturally, it seems as if it’s become more and more our shared value. ... Meringue is no longer a sweet and pretty topping but the body itself. ~Charles Perez

Charleston SC might be the result of opioid tourism...people go there to buy and take to home states...and to see the sights. It's a nice city.

I think you answered your own question there at the end... SC.

It's an insane asylum.
Well, fuck.

How can I be expected to distinguish BS from reality when so much of my reality is utter BS?!
