General Bob Livingston, The Adjutant General of South Carolina is the only military man in the World that has to play politics. Isn’t it time we changed that?
Ed Murray, The American Party candidate for Superintendent of Education tells us that many kids in rural and impoverished school districts don’t think they have a chance. Teachers have a role in showing them they “can.”
Patrick Bryant, Chairman of Yes4Schools challenges Bryan’s call to vote No for the one-cent sales tax extension. Bryan has stated that he doesn’t think our school board is in check and until it get’s its act together, we should vote NO.
From ethics violations, to failed departments, drunk SCDOT chief, a “Rock-Star” DSS Chief that resigns weeks later in shame to shady business deals….How can we re-elect Governor Haley when she hides behind Facebook and runs from the media like a coward?
#chs county Democrat Party Chairman Brady Quirk-Garvan says the Republicans had a chance to act to replace Bobby Harrell and it’s too late to do it a week before the election. Is the Democrat candidate (to replace Bobby Harrell) a shoe-in.
Bryan asks Bakari Sellers (running for Lt. Governor of South Carolina as a Democrat) if his campaign has been a struggle due to Obama’s destruction of the Democrat brand. Bakari responds by asserting differences he has with the President on some major issues.
Sources tell us she is hammering out the terms of her resignation. This is unconfirmed. Here are the details (audio).
Many are saying Vincent Sheheen intended to call SC Governor Haley the “W” word; Bryan asks Senator Vincent Sheheen (Dem for Gov) to set the record straight…
Listen to the difference between Ebola coverage in the UK and Ebola media coverage in the U.S. This is almost funny.
In a new Change.org petition, some of the members of The Saving Shem Creek page are trying to assert that locals who have owned their homes for many years should have much lower tax bills than newbies (“come latelys” as they sometimes call it).
This is taken directly off their petition:
“The longtime resident’s taxes will decrease and the more recent resident’s taxes will generally increase to compensate. THIS WILL KEEP OVER-DEVELOPMENT IN CHECK.”
This means that the average homeowner in Mt. Pleasant would see their tax bill potentially double while the “local-yocal” gets themselves a big tax break that could be thousands of dollars per year.
Granted: This has almost no chance of happening. But, it does show you how they think.
The Saving Shem Creek People are now trying to start a petition that would allow LONG-TERM RESIDENTS of Mt. Pleasant to pay property taxes at the rate of what they paid for the property (re: $50k 30 years ago) verses what a neighbor would pay for that same property if purchased today ($550k). To counteract the loss of revenue, they would suggest raising the millage rate, thus creating a newbie tax. The local-yocals would pay 1/2 or 1/3 of their current tax bill rate and new people would pay double. I’ve told you that these people (the core group) have a hidden agenda and now it’s coming out. An elite (but vocal) few of them think they have a higher rank in society than the rest of us and believe their tenure allows them both control and financial benefit. Yuk!
