What an idiot.
South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley decided to share her feelings today on buying school supplies for her children - a task many, many parents are taking part in this weekend.
However, Haley acts as if her spending $150 is a pain.
Not so fast. Haley can sneeze $150. How about the rest of you in our state? Our country? Can you all just ho-hum that amount these days? Oh, and to think our governor is trying to "relate" to us as if it hurts.
Give me a damn break. Haley and her Republican friends enjoyed cutting millions and millions from public education. Matter of fact, she snubbed millions more from the federal government - our share of funds of which we deserve - in June. And, just like the uncaring Republicans they are, Haley and Education Superintendent Mick Zais did it again.
The USDE recently sent a reminder letter to Gov. Nikki Haley and Zais, notifying them of Mondayâs deadline to apply for the funds, according to a report from the Associated Press. âThese resources have assisted local schools and communities across the country in hiring and retaining vital teachers and educators in the classroom to support ongoing teaching and learning,â agency director Ann Whalen wrote in her Aug. 5 letter.Haley shows her true ignorance today. By sending out her comment, she expects the people of this state to sympathize with her for spending $150 on school supplies as if it took food away from them.
