But most conservative socialist views are based on Christianity.

Yet I'm not religious. Not even a little. I do believe in being conservative with money somewhat though. Don't believe in handouts. I have plenty of cousins who do believe in handouts and little work. I also disagree with your constant upstate bashing. It's not true. Maybe for you. This thread has gotten out of control.

Yeah, that's not a "pedestrian bridge".

You are bringing up dead bodies, compared to Greenville County...the murder capital of SC?
Any stats for this?

You get a good view of the ghetto up on Ravanel and the smell of the paper plant. Dont' forget about that. lol Plus N. Charleston in the distance.
You said Greenville has the best pedestrian bridge in the world?? Hmm, I think London's Millennium Bridge is quite nice. Much nicer than Greenville's bridge. Perhaps you would like to retract your rather outrageous claim?


Millennium Bridge, London - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Arguing with somebody brings out the best in people. Greenville and Spartanburg are nice places. Would I live there? No. Anybody will defend where they live. I don't like SC much which includes Columbia. When I move I'll probably as you call it "bash" it also. We all have views and opinions based on history or current issues. I'm sure if you weren't a conservative and didn't live in the upstate you'd do the same thing. Do you not remember the DOT issue thread with them fixing 385/85 interchange instead of the two busier more congested interchanges or the Gville vs Cola vs Charleston thread? All those had gotten "out of control" as you call it. And me I have no limits. Freedom of speech to the max.

Urban pedestrian bridge or any pedestrian bridge?

Seriously, there's plenty of very, very nice pedestrian only bridges and no, I do not need to post '500 other pedestrian bridges' to make my point (which is, in itself, a ridiculous assertion). To make your claim was foolish at best and smacked of provincialism.

You have't prove your assertion though. Haven't even posted 1. No pressure.

lol

It is far better than that London bridge. Only other bridge that stepped up to the challenge so far so I will give it credit for courage.
Yes, all those pedestrian bridges in Paris and Venice - terrible. I'm sure people would agree that Greenville's paltry bridge is far superior. And you're genuinely saying it's better than the Millennium Bridge? Wow.

I said it was one of the best if not the best. I believe the bridge has won civil engineering awards and is recognized as being one of the best.
The Lookout Mountain bridge is better.
