Next Tuesday, Charlotteans will be take to the polls to vote in the mayoral race (where RINO Pat McRory will likely win another term). Also on the ballot is a vote on school bonds, as well as a major issue that has developed in Charlotte over the last several years: the half cent transit tax Charlotte citizens voted in favor of in 1998 in order to pay for a “transportation solutions” for Charlotte, including a “light rail” system we don’t need. The vote is whether or not to repeal that half cent tax, due to the fact that not only do we not really need light rail, but the cost of the light rail system is way, way, way, wayyyyyyyy over budget. Once that was discovered, just about every top city official feigned ignorance, and promised to “get to the bottom of it” – which of course, they didn’t do.

Poor ol’ “Man-made” Global Warming. It, along with the President, gets unfairly blamed for all kinds of disasters, including hurricanes, droughts, snowstorms – and most recently, the wildfires in California.
