Politics / Re: Greg Orman Political Ads. He sucks!
October 31, 2014, 05:39:08 AM
Yes, kshillbillys, he's a democrat in independent's clothing! Have you seen the commercials from the rancher named John from Eureka? Now those are good commercials! I could listen to John tell it like it is all day.

A vote for Pat Roberts is a vote against Harry Reid and Obama. We have to win the senate! Just my thoughts.

If Teresa and Kjell wanted to improve the Forum and participation by many on many good subjects all they would have to do is Shut Ross, Redcliff and 3 or 4 of Rosses cronies off. Everyone I have talked to is afraid to post because Rosses gets so rude if he doesn't agree with them.  I hope all of the voters will vote their heart and vote against Ross and his lies. Ross has Elk Konnected on the  Brain. Most of the people he has claimed were "El Konnected" had nothing to do with it. Ross is the worst thing to come to Elk County in along time. I know lots of you have told my family and friends that you ignore Ross.
Ross and his lies? People disagree with Ross and automatically call him a liar. Ross and his cronies? Someone comments on a thread that Ross begins or a post that Ross posts and they are automatically his cronies. Ross has the well being of this county on his brain. Most of the people he has claimed ARE Elk Konnected won't/can't admit to it because for some reason no one is allowed to talk publicly about it or they don't really know what they like about Elk Konnected themselves. I mean, Nancy, what exactly is it that you like about it? What do they do? You keep chiming in with people and telling them

good post
but what what exactly does Elk Konnected stand for? It seems to me that you could clear up a few things if you would let us all in on the secrecy.
As for the voting, Joesue, a vote for Doug Ritz is not going to be a vote against Ross and all of his lies, as you put it. His Elk Konnected thread started years ago and has continued even while Mr. Ritz has been in office. So if you think voting against Doug Ritz will shut Ross up, you are mistaken.

just because some one goes off into the big wide world and makes it on her own,and by choice comes home that does not  mean she abandoned it.
And Upoladeb, not always, but isn't that always the big point here in this county? We have to keep people HERE. Not let them move away and then maybe come back to retire. We have to get people to stay here. This is a dying county. I believe that is the point being made.

Ross makes valid points. Sometimes he doesn't go about it the right way, but all of us are human and all of us make mistakes. But I will bet my last dollar that the owners of this site don't want Ross to go anywhere. He brings a lot of traffic onto this website, good or bad. His Elk Konnected thread still gets a lot of views daily. Just because people aren't posting don't mean they aren't reading. And just because they say they're ignoring, doesn't make that necessarily so as well. Just watch what they post after they are supposedly "not reading" Ross.

Curiosity killed the cat.

You say tomahto. I say tomato.

No matter what it's called, they're all the same with the same socialistic agendas. All of the prominent business owners, who can influence school, city and county governments, all have a say. Once you have enough counties on board then you're able to attack the state. Maybe Sam Brownback should take note of who is kissing his ass. Maybe they should look closer at where their grants are going. When it's all boiled down, with multiple different named organizations, there's still ONE leader. And for that leader to claim stupidity would be futile.

By the way, speaking of politics

Now a little polite politics for your Friends Diane and may you have a great day

Neither Nancy or ddurbin mentioned politics. But on the other hand, you said, "speaking of politics" and the only person that spoke of politics was ROSS. Are you quite positive you don't read what ROSS writes? Are you sure you don't just click on it long enough to read it? Just wondered. Whether he's blocked by you or not, everyone else can read what ROSS has to say anyway. And I might add, he's the only reason I even read what's happening on the east coast. Otherwise I would get my news from the internet or any cable news organization.

Even though I cannot vote in District 1, I want everyone to keep this in mind: two and four years ago our county commission used to be spelled with a K. We've corrected that and got it back to a C. Let's keep spelling it the correct way!

Joesue, I have no doubt that Liz Hendricks worked hard to get the wind farm finalized and voting on where the wind farm would go, seeings that the majority of it sets on daddy's land that she receives money from. Oh yes, I would work my ass off to get it in too.

Sounds similar to the old movie Mr. Smith Goes To Washington except for the fact that Jimmy Stewart wasn't guilty of misconduct, unlike our previous county government. It's a fine movie. Everyone should take this opportunity to watch it and see the similarities to our past county government. In case you haven't seen it, here's a little about it (from IMDB, plot synopsis):

Smith comes up with legislation that would authorize a federal government loan to buy some land in his home state for a national boys' camp, to be paid back by youngsters across America. Donations pour in immediately. However, the proposed campsite is already part of a dam-building graft scheme included in a Public Works bill framed by the Taylor political machine and supported by Senator Paine. Through Paine, the machine accuses Smith of trying to profit from his bill by producing fraudulent evidence that Smith owns the land in question. However, Smith's chief of staff, Clarissa Saunders (Jean Arthur), has come to believe in him, and talks him into launching a filibuster to postpone the Works bill and prove his innocence on the Senate floor just before the vote to expel him. While Smith talks non-stop, his constituents try to rally around him, but the entrenched opposition is too powerful, and all attempts are crushed. Due to influence of the Taylor "machine", on his orders, newspapers and radio stations in Smith's home state refuse to report what Smith has to say and even twist the facts against the Senator. An effort by the Boy Rangers to spread the news results in vicious attacks on the children by Taylor's minions.

All of the irony in this synopsis is outstanding, agreed?

Since I have never seen your name before, Joesue23, I looked at your previous posts. I found this one very interesting:
Politics / Re: Elk Konnected Hand out at County Commissioners meeting on 4/25
« on: August 24, 2014, 01:14:38 pm »
If you listen to Ross blow, everyone that doesn't agree with him is part of Elk Konnected. I happen to know that Shari Kaminski has never had anything to do with Elk Konnected. All my family and friends in Elk County intend to vote for Shari. She is super sharp and her family are Ranchers and landowners in Elk County. Doug is not a landowner and what he farms is land owned by Shari's Aunt. Think about it what has Ross done for Elk County, NOTHING.
For an old man, I know how to use facebook and so I went on there. I did a search for Elk Konnected and lo and behold found that Shari Kaminska is friends with Elk Konnected. So, therefore your comment that "I happen to know that Shari Kaminski has never had anything to do with Elk Konnected" is a lie. Please make sure you can truthfully back everything that you say before you try to make everyone think we are stupid. Also, just in case anyone tries to remove that from facebook, I took pictures of it. Can't be too careful these days.
Let me add to this: I forgot to say that I went through all of Elk Konnected's facebook friends and found quite a few of their forum cheerleaders on there as well, even ones from faraway states.

What evil?

I heard down at the coffee shop that a member of the public (who became commissioner elect recently) had gone into a commission meeting and tried to call an executive session with the board. She knows absolutely nothing about the goings on of a commission meeting! Doesn't understand the rules apparently! A member of the public can't just waltz in there and want to discuss personal information about elected or non elected personnel. But it is also my belief that she will be a pupil and puppet for a former county commissionerette from a different district. District 1, are you sure she has your best interests in mind? People of Elk County, if we can't all come together to help with this election, hang onto your wallets! If we are supposed to be looking forward to the future, why do some people want to take us back into the past?

Thank you Warph. I've been seeing a lot of clips of this young man on the internet, but for some reason I seem to keep missing him on CSPAN. He's doing a very good job of trying to get facts! I predict good things for him!

Well said, Gadsden 1775.  As a district 2 resident, I am extremely proud to say that I played a role in overthrowing a phony, tyrannical, corrupt commissioner! It saddens me to think that we might return to the money grabbing ways of a certain organization in this county with its' own scheming political agenda. I pray that you folks in district 1 will be able to pull this off. Please write-in Mr. Ritz! God bless you all!

Thank you Larry J and kshillbillys for the birthday wishes. I spent a nice quiet day in the house reflecting on all my years!
