The Republican Party’s main concern is that some will sue Business. Republicans did vote against a bill protecting Whisleblowers, so I am not surprise they would vote against Paycheck Fairness Act as well. Continue reading
I guess many would forget that Nikki Haley can’t pay her own personal taxes; family business corporate taxes; employee taxes, and her legislature bills pass amount to only one saying Shampooers don’t have to pay for a license; her questionable job with Lexington Hospital raising money and getting a generous cut from each donation, and the involvement with Pay Day Lending, etc, etc,etc. Continue reading
John Crangle is wrong here because if she is making profits off of every donations and for every donation the PayDay lenders make to Lexington Medical Center then she is making money from the Payday lenders.
Then, the foundation arm of Lexington Medical Center, which State Rep. Haley had supported in its fight to open a heart surgery center, came to Haley’s financial rescue.
By 2009, Haley was pulling down more than $100,000 at a fundraising job for the Lexington Medical Center Foundation.
That job was created expressly for Haley, the hospital says, despite a resume that included only accounting positions with a Charlotte firm and with her parents’ clothing company.
STATE PAPER: THE CHOICE between Sen. Vincent Sheheen and Rep. Nikki Haley would be obvious under any circumstances. In the dysfunctional governmental system of South Carolina, it is even clearer that Mr. Sheheen should be our next governor. Continue reading

Well the answer is revealed about Nikki Haley’s sudden departure at Lexington Medical Center, because I know I asked and many also wonder why would Nikki Haley suddenly leave a well-paying job at Lexington Medical Center during the Primaries? As it is later revealed she was asked to leave, in-spite it would seem to many Nikki Haley was not interested in giving up a job with a year income of over $110,000. She worked their for 1 1/2 years, while she was a member of the House of Representative. Continue reading
Nikki Haley’s speeches resemble that of a Republican Rasmussen Poll Push-Poll, instead of a candidate running for Governor of the State of South Carolina. Instead of discussing the issues she is taking the most devisive and negative issues to drive fears to help win the governship. She is counting on this being a strong Republican State to carry her to victory. For all her accusations you think Nikki Haley be ready for a debate. Well apparently Nikki Haley is not ready for a debate because Vincent Sheheen has asked her for 4 debates, and she has turned him down. Nikki Haley instead of discussing the issues she is playing a game of Hide and Seek. Instead of games, how about some Debates.
Created by the Affordable Care Act, the Pregnancy Assistance Fund is a competitive grant program which helps states and tribes support pregnant and parenting teens and women. The grants help fund a seamless network of supportive services to help pregnant and parenting teens and women complete high school or postsecondary degrees and gain access to health care, child care, family housing, and other critical support. In addition, states are encouraged to use the funds to address violence against pregnant and parenting women. Continue reading
Conversely, conservative media frequently refers to Rasmussen, praising them for being the first to ask about a relevant issue or to ask questions that other pollsters do not. The Rasmussen Reports polls slanting to Republicans can be described as being similar to or just being called flat out a push-poll. A push poll is a political campaign technique in which an individual or organization attempts to influence or alter the view of respondents under the guise of conducting a poll. Continue reading

In 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones was gang-raped by her co-workers while she was working for Halliburton/KBR in Baghdad. She was detained in a shipping container for at least 24 hours without food, water, or a bed, and “warned her that if she left Iraq for medical treatment, she’d be out of a job.” (Jones was not an isolated case.) Jones was prevented from bringing charges in court against KBR because her employment contract stipulated that sexual assault allegations would only be heard in private arbitration.
“I dabbled into witchcraft – I never joined a coven. But I did, I did. … I dabbled into witchcraft,” O’Donnell said during a 1999 appearance on the show, which ran from 1994-2002 on ABC. “I hung around people who were doing these things. I’m not making this stuff up. I know what they told me they do.”
Sen. Jim DeMint has released the following statement following the victory of Christine O’Donnell in Delaware:
“I want to congratulate Christine on her remarkable victory tonight,” said Senator DeMint. “She came from behind and won this race because of her unwavering support for the principles of freedom. She wasn’t afraid to stand up to the establishment and she overcame some pretty nasty attacks.”
I also want to thank the thousands of grassroots conservatives in Delaware and around the country who worked so hard to make this possible. Without their support, Christine would not have been able to do it.
“Now it’s time for all Republicans to unite behind Christine so she can go on to win in November. If she is elected, she will join a growing group of new leaders in the Senate who will stand up to the big spenders in both parties and help us take our country back.”
“These debates will give South Carolinians with a comprehensive and thorough evaluation of both of us so that they won’t have to make such an important decision based on a thirty-second sound bite,” Sheheen said in a campaign statement. “I believe voters need a series of robust examinations of our positions to not only understand our governing philosophies but also begin to rebuild the trust that elected officials will act in ways consistent with their stated beliefs.” Continue reading

Any reasonable person would nod in agreement when she criticizes the Department of Education for requiring gym teachers to videotape students doing workouts. Then you check behind her and find out this was an evaluation of the state’s expanded P.E. program involving a random sample of 14,400 students — or less than 3 percent of those enrolled. That strikes me as overkill, but not the outrage conveyed by one of her favorite anecdotes.
Nikki Haley resembles more like Mark Sanford.
Recovery Act funding provided Project Gunrunner with $10 million to hire special agents, industry operations investigators and others to staff new offices in McAllen, Texas; El Centro, Calif.; and Las Cruces, N.M.
