Smatterings: Nikki Haley Rips SC House

GOVERNOR: LEGISLATIVE CHAMBER “NO LONGER A CONSERVATIVE BODY” || By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley ripped into the “Republican-controlled” S.C. House of Representatives this week, accusing its members of fiscal recklessness related to a borrowing bill. Ummm … really?  This is the same governor who vetoed less than one-tenth of one…


|| By FITSNEWS || S.C. governor Nikki Haley ripped into the “Republican-controlled” S.C. House of Representatives this week, accusing its members of fiscal recklessness related to a borrowing bill.

Ummm … really?  This is the same governor who vetoed less than one-tenth of one percent of last year’s state budget, people.  And approved a massive borrowing bill in 2013 that included all sorts of crony capitalist handouts.

Anyway, none of that stopped Haley from delivering a lecture to House members regarding their fiscal liberalism.

“This is South Carolina, not D.C.,” Haley said.  “The House … used to be a conservative body.”

Really?  When was that, we wonder … 

Also, what’s that Biblical admonition about first removing the log in one’s own eye before addressing the speck in someone else’s?  Cause Haley might want to look that passage up …

GOP budget writers in the House are looking to borrow up to half a billion dollars to fund a variety of “needs” (including “infrastructure”).  You know, in addition to their tax hike plan for, um, “infrastructure.”

What about infrastructure reform?  Or putting the kibosh on multi-billion dollar boondoggles?  Or prioritizing core functions of government?  Eh … not so much.

Look we agree with Haley that borrowing is bad … but as with so many of her criticisms, she doesn’t have a leg to stand on here.





Dear Editor: Thanks for keeping the perspective on Global Warming. My personal response to the warming Nazi crowd usually gets shouted down but here goes: A few billion years from now, the sun will swell to a Red Giant, consuming the inner planets.  That is global warming.  Our time and money is better spent developing a way to get Humanity off this rock and into the rest of the Universe.  And leave religion behind.




Anon: Dig it. Thanks for the kind words and the funny – and true – story.





Dear Editor: The article you wrote about the Citadel is probably accurate in the opinion of the cadets publicly … but talk to them privately when they know you wont publish their secrets and maybe they will tell you the truth.  You cant ask current cadets a question about hazing at The Citadel where everything is a sworn secret and expect the truth.  The article is comical because it’s what the cadets want to be published … it’s not the truth.

You will never know what goes on by interviewing cadets who will be ridiculed and ostracized in an environment where hazing and being tough is their every day routine.  Physical training behind closed doors is more like handing from a full press where your hands can be cut because the edge is sharp with peanut butter and cinnamon in your mouth … right after scarfing down your food at mess hall, and in time to make it to your next class 10 minutes later.

And I highly doubt Hell week will change.  They say that every year … even the year i was a knob.




Anon: Dude … now I want peanut butter.  Anyway stay tuned for much more from us on “El Cid.”

When the Global Warming letter writer (and I’m guessing FITS concurs) says “Leave Religion Behind”…does he mean the religion of Liberalism???

Because only BLIND (and in this case irrational) Faith can account for the belief in Climate Change and Global Warming???..when ALL evidence refutes it…

If not, how stupid must Letter-Writer and FITS be???…because it’s Christians who think sanely enough to reject Global Warming as the Hoax it is…If he is being saved from his otherwise stupidity by Christians, why does he persecute them???

True, faith trumps science. And the phone is just a fad, horses are better than cars, whale fat lights my home just fine, and there were never any dinasours. And the world is flat.

“True, faith trumps science”…

At least you admit it’s your blind faith in liberalism that makes you so D*#n ignorant to reality…

The Judeo-Christian/western world view made modern science possible.

Liberals hate God and they hate the truth. But you are 100% correct.

Rocky February 25, 2015 at 11:11 pm

LIberals don’t hate. If we did we’d have made sure that Tea Party patriots like yourself couldn’t get Obamacare and Medicare.

I notice you never said a word about ISIS setting Christians on fire and what effect it might have on the FALSE narrative of global warming.

Oh wait, I forgot you support ISIS and the terrorists,just like Obama.

Rocky February 25, 2015 at 11:10 pm

That’s why Obama has killed about 10,000 of ISIS to date. You’re a real treat you know that?

Almost all the scientists that made all the inventions and discoveries so appreciated by Rocky were by Christian and Jews.

And those who believed in the Greek or Roman Gods – don’t forget them or Zues might smite you.

Bible Thumper February 25, 2015 at 11:35 pm

The followers of Pythagoras worshiped him generations after his death in cult like fashion. He even believed that the rules of mathematics had spiritual meaning. Whether they worshiped Zues or whoever, In their is ignorance, they were closer to the truth than atheist.

The modern western civilization is indebted to the “pagan” Greeks and Romans, but even in their golden age they never lifted the masses above gut wrenching poverty. All their wealth depended on ruling over conquered peoples. Today’s poor live like nobles of the Roman era. The concept of progress in reference to civilization didn’t even exist in Roman times.

The progress made by civilization since the middle ages has been primarily due to the Christian and Jewish world view.

Don’t forget capitalism and the industrial revolution. Which are an extension of the Christian and Jewish world view. Like we Republicans like to say : A rising tide lifts all boats. The fallacy of government “management” holds back progress. Also like we Republicans like to say : Government can’t fix your problem, government is the problem.

Nikki better be careful before El Porko calls her a lesser cut of meat. “Bless her heart”

I would like to start a pool: guess the year in which Will finally realizes that anthropogenic global warming is a fact. Maybe about the time his Irmo single-wide becomes a beach house?

Non Common Core math …

South Carolina population:
In 1994 = 4.1 Million
In 2014 = 4.8 Million … a 24% increase over 20 years.

South Carolina government size (county and state):
In 1994 = 135,000 combined
In 2014 = 340,000 combined … a 150% increase over 20 years.
