According to our friends at North Carolina’s Americans for Prosperity, average health insurance premium increases in NC are expected to be among the highest in U.S. A Price Waterhouse Cooper Health Research Institute study said the average increase of 7.7% in North Carolina could be higher than the majority of states reporting premium increases, and is […]

Howdy Folks…Been Awhile

Sep 8, 2014   //   by Christian Hine   //   CAUTION, Christian Hine  //  No Comments

I’d like to take just a moment to apologize for what has seemingly been the complete neglect of this website for the past couple of weeks.  Yes, we paid the bills and the lights are still on!  Truth is, the regular jobs that actually keep those lights on have been busier than normal.  Couple that […]

Sales Tax Referendum Back On?

Jul 21, 2014   //   by Christian Hine   //   Carolinas, Char-Meck Beat, Christian Hine  //  11 Comments

Last week, it was reported HERE that we may have been saved from a referendum fight over increasing the local sales tax.  The NC Senate was looking to pass a bill that would cap local option sales tax at 2.5%.  Since Mecklenburg already charges that, the referendum would essentially be voided. However, due once again […]

A Couple Action Items…

Jul 17, 2014   //   by Christian Hine   //   Carolinas, Christian Hine  //  8 Comments

Hello friends! I’m obviously more of an activist than a journalist, so I figured I’d share a couple items that my fellow activists might be interested in. First, an invitation to a townhall meeting sponsored by WidenI77.org. Think the signing of the first contract with Cintra made HOT lanes on I-77 a done deal? Think […]

Good Golly! Liberals Love Molly Spearman in SC!

Jun 23, 2014   //   by Christian Hine   //   Carolinas, Christian Hine  //  No Comments

Despite the many benefits of living in South Carolina (ahem, cheaper gas, ahem), there remains a number of practices that I find just silly when it comes to local politics.  South Carolina gets it half right in not having it’s citizens register by Party affiliation, but it then continues to run elections in a partisan […]
