Federal report says South Carolina spends more on electricity than any other state

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 16:46:00 -0500

A federal agency says that while residential electric rates are highest in Hawaii, it's South Carolina that leads the nation in how much it pays to keep the lights on.

The U.S. Energy Information Administration, part of the U.S. Department of Energy, released a report on Feb. 13 revealing that the average Palmetto State resident spent $1,753 ($146 a month) on electricity in 2016, about $402 more than the average U.S. ratepayer.

That's despite the fact that Hawaii boasts the priciest rate at 27.5 cents per kilowatt-hour. The average U.S. rate is 12.5 cents per killowat-hour.

Alabama, Connecticut, Maryland, and Hawaii round out the top five list of states with the most burdensome bills.
Louisiana has the cheapest electricity at 9.3 cents per kilowatt-hour. more…

Alliance for Full Acceptance dismisses parody marriage bill as "obvious political posturing"

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 13:23:00 -0500

The Charleston-based LGBT advocacy group Alliance for Full Acceptance said on Tuesday that the "parody marriage" bill introduced by six S.C. lawmakers last week is a waste of time meant to rile up conservative bases ahead of this year's elections.

"This bill is discriminatory and is obvious political posturing by Republican legislators who are up for re-election," said AFFA executive director Chase Glenn in a statement released Tuesday morning. "The fact that our legislators are wasting their time and resources on issues that have already been resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court is a disgrace to the state of South Carolina and shows their misguided priorities." more…

CP columnist KJ Kearney will discuss the Confederate flag on tonight's episode of Viceland's Hate Thy Neighbor

Tue, 20 Feb 2018 09:59:00 -0500

CP columnist KJ Kearney will appear on Tuesday night's episode of 'Hate Thy Neighbor' to talk about the Confederate flag and the Mother Emanuel shooting.

'Hate Thy Neighbor,' hosted by English comedian Jamali Maddix, follows hate groups and extremist organizations in an attempt to both expose them and understand what inspires them.

Tuesday's episode seems to focus on those who proudly wave and support the Confederate battle flag. It features Andrew Duncomb, a black Oklahoman who is part of the right-wing Black Rebels.

In the episode, Duncomb picks Maddix up in Oklahoma City in a white pick-up truck waving an oversized battle flag.

"The majority of the people that you do see bashing the Confederate flag, they try to use the Confederate flag as a scapegoat for all those years of slavery and the racism and all of that," Duncomb said.

Kearney explains why the Confederate flag, an already divisive symbol, became an even bigger topic of conversation after the Mother Emanuel shooting.

"It's because [Dylann Roof] made it important," Kearney said. more…

This Old House episodes filmed in Charleston debut March 31

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 14:38:00 -0500

Upstate S.C. reps file "parody marriage" bill co-written by man who wanted to marry his computer

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 12:59:00 -0500

Six state representatives from the Upstate introduced a bill on Thursday, Feb. 15 that seeks to delegitimize gay marriages on the basis that being gay does not "check out with the human design."

The bill, titled the "Marriage and Constitution Restoration Act" defines marriage as the union between "a man and a woman," and calls other forms of marriages "parody marriages." The text claims that gay marriages violate the Establishment Clause of the Constitution because they are inherently "non-secular" and part of "the religion of Secular Humanism."

As opposed to straight marriages, which, you know, have absolutely nothing to do with years of patriarchy merged with biblical concepts.

It was sponsored by Reps. Seven Long (R-Spartanburg), Bill Chumley (R-Spartanburg), Mike Burns (R-Greenville), Rick Martin (R-Newberry), John McCravy (R-Greenwood), and Josiah Magnuson (R-Spartanburg).

The bill was co-written by Chris Sevier, who also helped with a similar bill filed in the Wyoming House of Representatives on Wednesday, Feb. 14. more…
