In just one year, the surplus from state gas-tax-hike revenues grew by more than a quarter of a billion dollars, or 50%, to $752 million as of Jan. 31, records show.

The Nerve repeatedly has pointed out the growing reserve that the S.C. Department of Transportation has been sitting on since the gas-tax-hike law took effect on July 1, 2017. Now, the agency contends that the surplus is committed to “pending vendor payments.”

Here's the thing with demanding civility -- you actually have to practice it. The Biden administration just learned that lesson the hard way. After two years of insisting on a kinder, gentler Washington, the president has raised plenty of eyebrows with his abrasive nominees. Neera Tanden was the surliest of the bunch, firing off years of social media insults as head of the radical Center for American Progress. She was everything Democrats said they hated in Trump: a brash, blunt, Twitter attack dog. Because she was one of them, the White House thought she'd be safe. They were wrong.

"The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next." - Abraham Lincoln 

This extreme leftist ideology is taking over public schools

Critical Race Theory MathA school district in Oregon decides that requiring students to show their work in a math problem reeks of white supremacy.1 Third graders in California must “deconstruct their racial identities” and “rank their power and privilege,” while Illinois’ new Culturally Responsive Teaching and Leading Standards will require all licensed teachers in the state to adopt a progressive political orthodoxy and “embrace and encourage progressive viewpoints and perspectives” to pass along to their students2. No more reading, writing, and arithmetic. Schools are to become radical leftist incubators that focus on social justice and politics.

It's a battle, Pastor Mike McClure said, that he "never wanted to be in." But it's a battle that God called him to fight -- and he knows it. Keeping his church open hasn't been easy, but then being obedient in the face of controversy usually isn't. Still, Pastor Mike pointed out, it's amazing when you do what's right how "the Lord just shows up." And late Friday, He wasn't the only one. The Supreme Court decided to weigh in too -- and the Christians of Santa Clara County couldn't be happier.
