Data over a decade ago show that some of the same counties with high domestic abuse are some of the same counties in recent data reports with a high number of domestic abuse cases, so Governor Nikki Haley can’t claim there was a sudden DECREASE in domestic cases in these surrounding counties. In fact there has been an increase for some of these areas; and yet Governor Nikki Haley has given 50% less in fewer funds; while giving more to other organizatins for other areas of counties who show significantly less, by thousands in fewer cases for domestic abuse. Apparently Governor Nikki Haley and her office didn’t read any reports, because if they did or if they truly cared I think the last areas you would decrease funding would be in areas with a high number of domestic abuse cases.
Governor Nikki Haley spent $127,000 going to Europe on South Carolina citizens money and she gives millions in incentive package to companies such as the $120 millions to one particular company who said they had NO guarnatee of that they would be expanding in South Carolina; she proposed an unlimited budget to a task force made up by donors and lobbyist; she has no problem giving yearly $50,000 to another lobbyist organization that is known to be under investigation by the FBI and IRS for Recreation and tourism; and some how for a few days a year she doesn’t think it worth it to make sure the funds are there for young people with physical disabilities and chronic illness to have a camp just for them to go to.

Just like other programs for African-Americans, the poor; Nikki Haley has eliminated programs, juggle around funding or has either put a very, very smaller cap on funds. And if you see one of the governor’s latest proposal then you don’t have to wonder why a stated funded university such as Clemson has on their website asking for donations to fund their student’s tuition.
In 2013 the New York Times reported a 72% increase from 2011-12 from 2007 with students being diagnosed with autism, Asperger syndrome, or a related developmental disorder development disorders. In 2012 the Atlantic wrote an article titled “Why So Many Babies Are Still Being Born With Down Syndrome.” I think clearly the title recognizes a need for more help, but that need for help doesn’t appear to be something Governor Nikki Haley has recognized.
If special needs students were a charter, private school, or home bound schooling Governor Nikki Haley would have come up with a voucher or tax-exemption so these parents could send their children to school, but since they are not a charter, private, or home bound schools these students have been left out in the cold by Governor Nikki Haley.

As mentioned in previous blog Governor Nikki Haley is getting rid of a gifted program that is a part of public schools that has proved to be a success for all ethnic groups. Let me stress real because a ‘real’ public school is not a charter school. Charter schools supporters just call themselves public schools … Continue reading
This program has been so much a success that there has been an increase in the number of students entering into the gifted program in South Carolina. That increase of students entering into such advanced programs also means the need for more money; however the funding for this program has not increased with the number of students entering into the program and now Governor Nikki Haley plans are to eliminate that program so that she can fund private and home bound schooling.
If public schools were a business, Governor Nikki Haley would have been offering them bond incentives to expand rather than eliminating such program.
A program that has been recognized nationally, for its aggressiveness to help African-American students and the poor Continue reading

Since Mark Sanford left the Governor’s Office, Governor Nikki Haley has gutted the Medicaid services for the poor and the youngest of society year after year non-stop. In the mean time she has benefited herself and her campaign donors.

Year after year Nikki Haley has expanded her resolve to cut even deeper into Medicaid and the Health and Human Services. I have included a comparison to see how Governor Nikki Haley proposal are cuts that wipe out whole sections concerning Medicaid and the Health and Human Service. You will find that once Nikki Haley has marked out whole sections she moves on to a different section to cut everything out of it. Year after Year…
There are several ways something can become Pay to Play and in the case of Nikki Haley, the following definition and subject matter applies: taken from Wikipedia it states Typically, the payer (an individual, business, or organization) makes campaign contributions to public officials, party officials, or parties themselves, and receives political or pecuniary benefit such as no-bid government contracts, influence over legislation, political appointments or nominations, special access or other favors. The contributions, less frequently, may be to nonprofit or institutional entities, or may take the form of some benefit to a third party, such as a family member of a governmental official.

The NLRB was really on to something more than they even know when they believed Boeing shut down it’s Washington plant because it’s employees were in favor of Unions. Just like the Koch brothers own several companies, in different names Boeing is no different. Boeing being Vought isn’t hidden information, it’s just they didn’t bother to tell any one that information. So when this announcement came Boeing created jobs in Charleston Boeing just bother to reveal that is actually more than one company and one of the other company it is Vought. However being that prior year Vought laid off employees, I call in to Question, did Boeing really create jobs are just replace 400 laid off workers.

If You ever wondered how does Nikki Haley get accused of so many ethics violation but always gets away with it. To be specific there are nine seats to the South Carolina Commissioner Ethics board and they are all appointed by the governor; then again I could tell you all the seats were never filled; then again I could tell you we have members who seats are expired; or then again I could tell you South Carolina has no outside oversight into South Carolina ethics.
And on a side note if it’s been this long that some of the seats haven’t been filled or they have either expired who is to say that Governor Nikki Haley will be appointing anyone to the South Carolina Ethics Commission. Now that would be certainly one way of avoiding being charged with ethic violations.
Will Nikki Haley fill the South Carolina Ethics Commission seats; leave all seats empty; fill with supporters; or NO watchful eye *Period* ? Continue reading
