By |November 11th, 2016|Editorial, XPC|Comments Off on Why Investment in Our Cities Matters So Much

There are many areas of society that need investment and focus. And it’s really important to make sure we invest in our cities as much as possible. These are some of the reasons why it’s so essential to invest in our cities so much.

Medicine

There are plenty of reasons why it’s important to invest in our cities. And one of the main ones is by way of healthcare. There are many issues with inadequate healthcare in a lot of big cities. Many people aren’t getting the medical support that they need. This is creating more illness, resentment, and divisions in society. It’s time to start building more hospitals and doctors surgeries and to invest more in affordable healthcare plans. So many people are priced out of many of the medical treatments and plans in place. But, if we invest properly in our cities medicine will become a key focal point again.

Jobs

Think about the key components that make up a country. Why is it so important that we invest in our cities? Well, we need to create jobs. Working people are happy people, and harmony is all important. By reducing levels of unemployment we reduce poverty and crime, and cities become much nicer and more pleasant places to live. Creating job opportunities is really important and can be done in a number of different ways. Building new infrastructure, creating factories, and bringing businesses to the area is really important. It’s vital to take a look at how much we can improve an area by investing in it.

Education

One of the biggest problems inherent in a lot of modern societies is the failure to educate. Children and adults alike deserve, and require, a solid platform of education. […]

Is Your Business Carbon Dated? Use These Ways To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

By |November 9th, 2016|Editorial, XPC|Comments Off on Is Your Business Carbon Dated? Use These Ways To Reduce Your Carbon Footprint

Has your business taken steps to reduce its carbon footprint regarding your tech usage? It is not just making sure that paper and plastic go into their individual containers now. There are many ways to be more conscious of what you are doing for your start-up or small business. Reducing your carbon footprint needs to be a priority in the 21st century to ensure that future generations enjoy the benefits of a cleaner planet. It is difficult to completely ensure a green operation in your workplace. After all, the amount of energy that is being used to power computers and other supplies in the workplace is, to an extent, a necessity. There are methods to help your business cut back on your power usage. Here are some methods that you can integrate into your business.

Go Up To The Cloud

Upgrading your operating system to the Cloud is a great way to cut business costs while also benefitting the environment. As the Cloud a is document recovery tool that is instant, there is no need for any physical system for the information to be stored. Also, Cloud service suppliers do offer recovery and backup options for service users.

It is very cost effective for many reasons. As the Cloud takes up fewer resources regarding processing and computing information, it helps the environment too. When the servers are not being used with a standard Cloud operating system, it powers down and scales down its resources. Integrating the Cloud software/hardware into your business is relatively easy. Doing this will reduce the waiting times for the organization and, again, is another measure to make your business save money. You can use a Cloud Integration Platform to make this an easier transition. […]

The Path to Citizenship: Where Trump and Clinton Stand

By |November 9th, 2016|Editorial, XPC|Comments Off on The Path to Citizenship: Where Trump and Clinton Stand

At the time of writing this, Trump and Clinton are still horn-locked in the battle for the Presidency of the United States. And probably by the time you read this, one of them will be President. It’s strange to think that it will soon be over – although, of course, whatever “it” is, it will really only just be beginning!

Many will think that it’s too late to go over what these two think about certain issues. These people seem to forget that the President is probably going to be in office for four years! Whichever way America votes, it’s important to understand what the implications are going forward. The result could have very disruptive consequences for certain people and families living in the USA. I am, of course, talking about immigrants.

So let’s take a quick look at what both of these candidates think about the path to citizenship. This is one of the key issues when it comes to their immigration policies. If you’re an immigrant, it’s important for you to understand that things are likely to change soon. You may have to start looking at your position from a legal perspective. Firms like the Law Office of Van T. Doan specialize in family and immigration law. Look into options like this if you’re unsure about your position.

Birthright citizenship

If someone is born in the United States, they are a citizen of the United States. This is the result of an 1868 amendment to the Constitution. The change has its roots in the contemporary controversy of the citizenship of black Americans. The language used in the amendment actually does leave some “wiggle room” when it comes to interpretation. But the essence of the amendment is that […]

Have You Taken The Canada Pledge Yet?

By |October 19th, 2016|Editorial, XPC|Comments Off on Have You Taken The Canada Pledge Yet?

It seems that every time a presidential election comes around, the liberal half of the USA threatens to move up north to Canada if they lose. Some do, of course, but the vast majority stay and will grit their teeth through a Republican presidency. But this time, things feel a little different. With Donald Trump seemingly staying in the race by the skin of his teeth – somehow – will you be pledging to make a move to Canada if he actually wins?

But let’s face it, the Clinton alternative is hardly an attractive prospect either. This presidential election has been the dirtiest one most of us can remember. And whether you are a Republican or Democrat, you cannot be impressed with any of the behavior on view over the last year. Corruption, boasts of sexual assault, leaked emails, no taxes – it’s not a good overview of American politics.

So, regardless of the result, many people are starting to feel like they might be better off elsewhere. And with the likes of Lena Dunham taking the Canada pledge, who else is thinking the same? However, it’s important to understand that moving to Canada isn’t easy. Here’re some of the issues that might get in your way.

Who will Canada accept?

Relocating to Canada is actually pretty easy if you are a doctor, lawyer or an architect. Temporary moves are simple for those that will walk into a job. But for the vast majority of Americans, there are a lot of controls. And these checks are very similar to those we impose on other nationalities with our immigration policies. Most will need a sponsorship to enter the country and work, usually from a direct family member. So, if […]

Donald Trump: Profiled

By |April 1st, 2016|Editorial|Comments Off on Donald Trump: Profiled

The most talked about man in global media right now is certainly this guy. However, what do you really know about the most likely male candidate to become America’s next President? Trump is definitely here to stay. So, we profile the American from top to bottom – letting you know every little secret! Check it out.

‘Flickr Link’

Firstly, Trump is a Republican, which is one of the U.S political parties. If you don’t know much about U.S politics, then it might be worth brushing up a bit before reading on. A great place to start is www.3branchesofgovernment.com. You can thanks us later! Trump was born into a family of Scottish immigrants, hence the first name. He is now chairman and president of the Trump Organization and is the founder of Trump Entertainment Resorts. Basically, he is very, very wealthy! He is worth approximately $9 billion!!! While this may be an advantage in terms of campaigning for the election, he may lose a few less fortunate people’s votes. As a result, it is very uncertain whether or not Trump’s chances at a shot at the Presidency can be taken seriously. A surprising number of Republicans are actually backing him despite some further afield policies.

Did you know? In 2011, he tried calling out incumbent President Barack Obama on the validity of his birth certificate! This stoked up some serious controversy. Trump even offered Obama a $5m donation to a charity of his choosing for the release of this information. For this reason alone, many people have opposed him since his breakout into politics back in 2000. Obama has historically always been opposed by Trump. However, America’s first black President has helped Trump change some of his views on […]

S429 PTSD Bill

By |March 27th, 2016|Editorial, Politics, South Carolina, State|Comments Off on S429 PTSD Bill

Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
Two State Senators Stand in the Way of Treatment
On February 2, 2015 State Senator Paul Thurmond introduced a bill (S429) to fix a loophole in our state’s Worker’s Comp law. There is also a complimentary SC House bill (H3699). Senator Thurmond was working with Charleston County Deputy Michael Ackerman, who lost his partner and friend on a call when he was murdered in front of him. This bill would provide for PTSD treatment for our First Responders across South Carolina. This includes every Law Enforcement Officer, Paramedic, Firefighter, and EMT. These folks report to duty everyday to keep us and our businesses safe.
 

From Web MD:
Post-traumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, is among only a few mental illnesses that are triggered by a disturbing outside event, unlike other psychiatric disorders such as clinical depression.

Many Americans experience individual traumatic events ranging from car and airplane accidents to sexual assault and domestic violence. Other experiences, including those associated with natural disasters, such as hurricanes, earthquakes, and tornadoes, affect multiple people simultaneously. Simply put, PTSD is a state in which you “can’t stop remembering.”

Recently we learned that two State Senators have blocked this bill and are keeping it in the Judiciary Committee. Typical South Carolina politics, right? Senator Ross Turner of Greenville and Senator Shane Massey of Edgefield. Senator Turner has placed a Minority Report on it and Senator Massey is refusing to allow a vote to remove it from the bill so it can move out of committee and to the Senate floor. This bill has bipartisan support. Senator Nikki Setzler (Senate Minority Leader) and Senator Tom Davis (The Senate’s most fiscally conservative member) are among it’ sponsors. There are fifteen sponsors, total. We […]

PTSD Bill Holdup

By |March 20th, 2016|Editorial|1 Comment

State Senators Shane Massey and Ross Turner are holding up a bill to support our Public Safety employees across South Carolina.

This is typical politics, where we have two Senators extolling their undying support of Public Safety, but when given the opportunity to do so, they fight it.

Call these Senators and tell them to support our LE, Fire, and EMS folks that serve our state everyday.

Senator Shane Massey:
Senate Office 803-212-6148, Home 803-480-0419, Business 803-649-6200

Senator Ross Turner:
Senate Office 803-212-6148, Home 864-987-0596, Business 864-288-9513, 864-400-3517

How one First Responder feels – Michael Ackerman’s Facebook post:
So tonight WCIV Channel 4 did another piece on my work with Senator Paul Thurmond regarding SC Senate Bill S429, (which would make PTSD for all first responders a compensible injury under worker’s comp). In the piece Sen. Ross Turner (Greenville) and Sen. Shane Massey (Edgefield), both told WCIV that they opposed the bill because it would open the door to “FRAUD”.

Ladies and Gentlemen, these two senators are calling the thousands (YES THOUSANDS) of first responders in the state of SC suffering with PTSD….LIARS!!! They are saying we are just making up PTSD!!! Are you kidding me??!!! I am beyond pissed at this point. AZ just UNANIMOUSLY passed legislation making PTSD a compensible injury for first responders under worker’s comp. Other states are following suit. BUT, SC says covering PTSD for first responders would open the door to fraud.

So I openly challenge my state level FOP to aggressively counter this ignorance through the media, social media, and public meetings, Terry Gainey it is time for the gloves to come off with this, traditional methods ARE NOT working!!! Gerald G. Mishoe can you get the SC fire fighter association on this? Shonnah McCauley can you get […]

The Bullies: Why Evangelicals Like Trump

By |February 10th, 2016|Editorial, Politics, Presidential|Comments Off on The Bullies: Why Evangelicals Like Trump

“Donald Trump is such a bully that I
can’t understand why evangelicals like him!”
I’ve heard that and have read it (or similar statements) in many social media postings from people who are genuinely dumbfounded as to why. There has been no shortage of people declaring that Christians either “won’t” or “shouldn’t” vote for Trump. There have even been those calling a person’s faith into question if they do support Trump.

The quickest and simplest way to explain the “why” is to point to the saying; “The enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

Bully #1: The Left (Democrats) long ago declared Christians their enemy. They have fought for abortions, to remove God from our public schools, forced sexually deviant lifestyles on us and our children, all with no tolerance of Christian faith while preaching to Christians that it is they who should be tolerant.

Bully #2: The Press (Mainstream Media) are practically joined at the hip with the Democrats. Since The Left cannot truly align their agendas with a Christian faith, they have the Press out there constantly justifying everything The Left does. They have loaded us up with talking heads and faux polling data in an effort to guide the sheep in their direction.

Bully #3: Hollywood uses star power to constantly reinforce the agendas of the left (global warming, sexually deviant lifestyles, etc). And, where most people say they aren’t interested in politics, just try to find any mainstream show where politics isn’t injected – it is virtually impossible.

Bully #4: The GOP (Establishment). This category is more of a mixture of bullies and enablers. We have those “Lindsey Graham types” which call their own constituents “bigots” because they want our borders closed, but for the most part, it […]

Why We Love America

By |January 26th, 2016|Dimsdale Debate, Editorial|Comments Off on Why We Love America

IF SOMEONE WERE TO ASK YOU WHY YOU LOVE AMERICA WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?

I can probably guess that everyone listening to this show is either in love with America or has been at one time. But if I someone were to ask you on the street why you loved America, what would you say? Would you give them an emotional story of your infatuation with our country? Would you prove statistically how America is superior among the nations? Or would you just say, this is my home and I love America just because it’s my patriotic duty? Now all are decent answers but isn’t it so much more enthralling to have exact reasons as to why we all love America?

Now I could go on and on for hours about America’s religious foundings, her Constitution, her beautiful mountains and shores and her capitalistic economy, but I do want to touch on a few points briefly.

It is an absolute miracle that our founding even came to be. Never in the history of the world has the universe seen a collaboration of virtuous, Godly men decide to take such action, as to free themselves from the bondage of an oppressive government and when the smoke cleared and the dust settled, agree that their new form of government be banned from having tyrannical rule over the people. So much trust was put upon our first president, George Washington, the people could have crowned him king. But our country was blessed to have a leader righteous enough to realize that a monarchy would not suite the people, even if given all the power. Our country saw time and time again where God’s hand played a role where a ragtag nation […]

The Revolution Has Begun

By |September 30th, 2015|Editorial|Comments Off on The Revolution Has Begun

Primary season begins soon, and there is
will be plenty of candidates who need help.
From the Spartanburg Tea Party website:

This article by J. Christian Adams (the DOJ whistleblower, google him) set off a bit of a typing spree for me…
It’s hard to pinpoint exactly when it started, but with Speaker John Boehner’s resignation announcement, there’s no doubt the revolution has begun. Perhaps it was the first time you bookmarked the Drudge Report. Or maybe, when at the Drudge Report, you said: “Who is this Breitbart?” Eric Cantor’s primary loss to Dave Brat was certainly a moment when the revolution was stirring and produced tangible results rather than just internet narrative.

Regardless of when the revolution started, it’s clearly underway.

First, what do I mean by revolution? Like with all revolutions, the old ways are being replaced. But this revolution has a twist: the revolution is trying to replace the old ways of doing business with even older, and more timeless ways. Namely, this revolution is a revolution against centralized power.

It could be that this revolution really started two centuries ago. Perhaps it never stopped. We were warned about the price of eternal vigilance, weren’t we?
Now before you read on, go and read that entire article.

Okay then.

It’s been a tremendously long and difficult 6 and a half years. I could talk for hours and hours about Spartanburg County and Columbia and all the stops and starts and victories … and far more defeats and setbacks. Not to mention Washington. The saga of Obamacare, Pelosi needing the votes, does she or does she not have them. The midnight votes. The changes to the filibuster. Bart Stupak, The Louisiana Purchase.

John Roberts’ traitorous act. The bridges to nowhere and studying shrimp on […]
