SC Among “Worst Run” States

MORE DYSFUNCTIONAL PALMETTO FUN! It’s been another bad week for the the Palmetto State in the national rankings.  Days after Forbes declared South Carolina one of eleven “death spiral” states (given its high ratio of dependents-to-income earners), another national publication is weighing in on our ineffective government.

It’s been another bad week for the the Palmetto State in the national rankings.  Days after Forbes declared South Carolina one of eleven “death spiral” states (given its high ratio of dependents-to-income earners), another national publication is weighing in on our ineffective government.

According to 24/7 Wall Street (no relation to 21 Jump Street), South Carolina is the eighth-worst run state in America.

We know what you’re thinking … there are seven states that are run worse than this one?

Not possible … especially in light of the ongoing disaster over at the S.C. Department of Revenue (SCDOR) – which coughed up 3.8 Social Security numbers, 3.3 million bank account numbers, tax info for more than 650,000 businesses and nearly 400,000 credit and debit card numbers to hackers earlier this year.

Oh well … it’s another “great day in South Carolina,” people.

Any Fuckwad can bitch. How about some positive suggestions on fixing our states problems for a change.

Clearly those don’t work johnb. FITS is stating the obvious all day long and gets nothing but bitched at by the libtards.

Have a Great Day!! :) There won’t be many left with the Demlicans and Republicrats in charge.

Positive suggestions are ignored at all levels. End of story.

Get Bill Nettles to do his job and quit running for the judgeship he will never get.

Here’s a suggestion to help South Carolina– Dump that shifferbrains Joe Wilson. He’s an embarrassment to the State. If I hear “Joe Means Jobs” one more time I’m going to puke. The only job he is interested in is his own and the rest of his clan. Lying backstabbing idiot.

Wow: FITS (whose Carpetbagging Master just got done w/ EIGHT years of running SC) thinks SC is backwards, bad and cannot hold a candle to those Liberal-Infested states like the Bankrupt Caifornia or the Union-Corrupted Rust Belt….

These Self-Loathing Liberals (like FITS) feel so Smart and Sophisticated by bowing to the Leftwing Arbiters of their minds….

You forgot to mention Oboma, asshole!

There is not a day that goes by that you don’t have at least one story about how bad and or backwards SC is. Your only solution is to turn this state into a libertarian paradise run by you and the other Ron Paul fanatics. Since 90% of us have, and will continue to reject that concept, maybe it’s time for you to take your negative rants and go elsewhere. I’m sure there has to be somewhere that your genius will be appreciated.

Hey jimbob. I may have missed the satire but I do believe he owns this motherfucker.

Don’t be too hard on jimbob, he’s just a masochist and can’t help it.

True so True November 29, 2012 at 1:36 pm

Yep. He owns it and your ass can’t stay away from it. If you hate Will so much or didn’t value his opinions , note: these are just his opinions, then why come here?

Lance Riprock November 29, 2012 at 2:36 pm

Same reason we all come here- nothing better to do. Obviously we’re a bunch of retired or unemployed bored losers or else we’d have something better to do. Nobody here is going to win the Nobel Peace Prize or even Little Miss Bamberg. Too sad for words. Pass me the crack pipe, please.

Thomas November 29, 2012 at 4:29 pm

It is not Folks or the masturbating of his sycophantic following or his somatypical ID that is stuck somewhere between his endomorphic interphase and his navel, rather what brings me here are the “sneak-up’s” that source his novelettes. I was drawn in with the Major Kenny Lancaster adultery revelation and have had nothing but good laughs ever since.

Truly cheap entertainment!

BigT November 29, 2012 at 7:39 pm

Maybe he like Slapping the $#!* out of liberal idiots…and this site has more liberal idiots than any other….

Since it appears to be confessional time I’ll bite

Father forgive me for I have and continue to sin 24/7. I also blog.

I really don’t know why I blog, I just do.

Its kinda like when you are in Wal Mart and you have to fart.

Sure you could suck it up, leave the store and fart in the privacy of your car but no, you walk around looking over your shoulder trying to find a clear aisle. When you think the time is right, you cock your butt cheek to starboard and fart.

Just as a smile of satisfaction begins to curl on your face a cute 7 year old pops up and yells out, mommy I haven’t found the bathroom but I smell it.

As I understand it, our Republican leaders are simply not quite Republican enough.

Nothing that a tax cut for all the rich folks won’t solve!

Where is Howie Rich when we need him?

The Romney loss pitted the Karl Rove (FITS, Sanford and the moderates) vs Jim DeMint…

Moderates, from Ford, Dole, McCain and Romney…just LOSE…it happens everytime…

FITS still ain’t over Bush kickin’ McCain’s @$$ in SC in 2000…..The Sanford Governorship was about REVENGE for that to a large degree…

Time to Give the Conservatives a shot…and the people who are SICK of the Same ol, Same ol may get excited enough to out-vote the Race Whores, Lazy Government workers, the bitter and Illegals…

There is only one serious person in state government and that is Curtis Loftis the state treasurer. My boss, a big wheel in state government, says he is one of a kind and has already had more effect on state government than anyone he knows.

Some people live for the press and some people live for the work and Loftis is one of those guys.

I heard that Loftis was on the verge of a accomplishing a significant thing. 60 Minutes is coming down next week or maybe the week after. I know SC needs help and I hope he can make it happen.

Thomas November 29, 2012 at 10:13 pm

Curtis speaks plain english. He is famous amongst precious metal aficionado’s with his report on price manipulations. As Auda abu Tayi, Auda of the Howitat said in “Lawrence of Arabia”, he is not perfect. I recall he immediatley tried to get work for a law firm to manage the SCRS accounts. Now, if he pulled money out of the SCRS and bought silver bullion, he would be King Faisal, Ambassador Dryden, and General Allenby all rolled into one! He would be…..Loftis of South Carolina!!!

? November 30, 2012 at 8:23 am

lol, I rather enjoyed your comment. Good job.

Btw, if he pulled a “University of Texas” he would truly be Loftis of SC!

If he did it with silver as you say(which I’m frankly shocked to hear), he might even be greater.

As I mentioned before though in the midst of the retirement system crisis(still is, right?), I think the forces aligned against him if he did such a move(that would be sane none the less) would be such that they’d find a way to snuff him out permanently.

Think about it, if he did it the following groups would be pissed:

1. The entire financial industry(for calling them on their bullshit), that includes lots of NYers and Charlotteans.
2. The Federal Reserve(for undermining the currency), and by extension all the pols in DC
3. All the connected power pols to SC’s retirement system
4. Half of the idiot retirement system members that don’t realize their retirement is already in a precarious spot and don’t like the idea of “teabagger” idealogy steering the proverbial retirement titanic in an attempt to avoid the iceberg.

All those groups are enough to squash Loftis quite flat.
