But if the socialists have 2 out of 3 on the County Commission, they're in control to enact their agenda.

And their agenda will include taking more of your money and the resources of the county to further their causes
by and thru government.

Thank you Warph for posting the story that contained this information.

Best Story Of The Day

For the last 6 years, we have listened to the race-baiting, income redistribution language of Barack Obama. We have heard the typical racial grievance artists Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, and activist Attorney General Eric Holder place the finger of blame on the ills plaguing people, especially the black community, on others. Personal responsibility, under the Obama regime, has become something that is neither expected nor praised.

The welfare state has increased. Big government has gotten even bigger. There is a push, led by Obama, for an increased minimum wage to as much as $15 an hour, during a time, might I add, when he is cutting benefits, pay, and meals for our military.

In fact, in listening to Obama, he has led far too many Americans to believe that the system is rigged against them and they have ‘never had a fair shot because others haven’t given their fair share’. The overt Marxism in his language is astounding and has no place in America, let alone being uttered by an American president.

In his attempt to fundamentally transform America, Obama is leading the people down a path of complacency, bitterness, and envy. His hope and change mantra quickly morphed into gimme the change, as in cash, that I’m hoping for. It’s a sad state in America right now with the defeatist attitude fed by Barack Obama and his minions.

Doesn't this hopey/changy thingy
 sound a bit familiar
 on the local level?

 My personal thoughts and opinion of Arrogant Ignorance of College Educated people has not been wrong, again in my personal opinion. Read these excerpt from an article on “STUPID”.  Highlights in bold blue are mine.

 A Link for the complete article is at the bottom of the page.

Ignorant America: Just How Stupid Are We?
Millions of Americans are embarrassingly ill-informed and they do not care that they are.
July 1, 2008  |   
 
"If a nation expects to be ignorant and free, in a state of civilization, it expects what never was and never will be." -- Thomas Jefferson

Just how stupid are we? Pretty stupid, it would seem, when we come across headlines like this: "Homer Simpson, Yes -- 1st Amendment 'Doh,' Survey Finds" (Associated Press 3/1/06).

"About 1 in 4 Americans can name more than one of the five freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment (freedom of speech, religion, press, assembly and petition for redress of grievances.) But more than half of Americans can name at least two members of the fictional cartoon family, according to a survey.

"The study by the new McCormick Tribune Freedom Museum found that 22 percent of Americans could name all five Simpson family members, compared with just 1 in 1,000 people who could name all five First Amendment freedoms."

Five defining characteristics of stupidity, it seems to me, are readily apparent. First, is sheer ignorance: Ignorance of critical facts about important events in the news, and ignorance of how our government functions and who's in charge. Second, is negligence: The disinclination to seek reliable sources of information about important news events. Third, is wooden-headedness, as the historian Barbara Tuchman defined it: The inclination to believe what we want to believe regardless of the facts. Fourth, is shortsightedness: The support of public policies that are mutually contradictory, or contrary to the country's long-term interests. Fifth, and finally, is a broad category I call bone-headedness, for want of a better name: The susceptibility to meaningless phrases, stereotypes, irrational biases, and simplistic diagnoses and solutions that play on our hopes and fears.

(The support of public policies that are mutually contradictory, or contrary to the county's long-term interests.)

(meaningless phrases= Quality of Life – un-defined)

(solutions that play on our hopes and fears. = the sky is falling = Are we to believe we can reverse the population decline with just words that have no substance.)


Like Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart, who confessed not knowing how to define pornography, we are apt simply to throw up our hands in frustration and say: We know it when we see it. But unless we attempt a definition of some sort, we risk incoherence, dooming our investigation of stupidity from the outset. Stupidity cannot mean, as Humpty Dumpty would have it, whatever we say it means.
 
What Voters Don't Know

Who these poor souls were who didn't know who Martin Luther King was we cannot be sure. Research suggests that they were probably impoverished (the poor tend to know less on the whole about politics and history than others) or simply unschooled, categories which usually overlap. But even Americans in the middle class who attend college exhibit profound ignorance. A report in 2007 published by the Intercollegiate Studies Institute found that on average 14,000 randomly selected college students at 50 schools around the country scored under 55 (out of 100) on a test that measured their knowledge of basic American civics. Less than half knew that Yorktown was the last battle of the American Revolution. Surprisingly, seniors often tested lower than freshmen.


(The explanation was apparently that many (college) students by their senior year had forgotten what they learned in high school.) (Which translates to the fact that a High School drop out could possess greater knowledge of current events and proper definition of words and phrases than a College Educated person.) 

(Should we permit a worn out College Degree carry the weight to make fools of us?)
(Should we permit the worn out old phrase "I was Born and Raised here" be the main reason for voting someone in office)

If the problem were simply that Americans are bad at names, one would not have to worry too much. But they do not understand the mechanics of government either. Only 34% know that it is the Congress that declares war (which may explain why they are not alarmed when presidents take us into wars without explicit declarations of war from the legislature). Only 35% know that Congress can override a presidential veto. Some 49% think the president can suspend the Constitution. Some 60% believe that he can appoint judges to the federal courts without the approval of the Senate. Some 45% believe that revolutionary speech is punishable under the Constitution.

On the basis of their comprehensive approach, Delli Carpini and Keeter concluded that only 5% of Americans could correctly answer three-fourths of the questions asked about economics, only 11% of the questions about domestic issues, 14% of the questions about foreign affairs, and 10% of the questions about geography. The highest score? More Americans knew the correct answers to history questions than any other (which will come as a surprise to many history teachers). Still, only 25% knew the correct answers to three-quarters of the history questions, which were rudimentary.

(I asked a County Commissioner during A Board Meeting to define Economic Development, his simple answer was, "No, it is too complicated." So I ask why does the count need an Economic Development Employee if a County Commissioner doesn't understand it's function? Why is the recently vote in Couty Commissioner that ha not been seated, reportedly sayig she wants to hire yet another Economic Development Employee, when the County has no benefited from the two previous Economic Development Employees?)

In 2003, the Strategic Task Force on Education Abroad investigated Americans' knowledge of world affairs. The task force concluded: "America's ignorance of the outside world" is so great as to constitute a threat to national security.

(In closing this is for you to decide for yourself, the opinions are mine alone. The article is only excerpts. You can read the whole article by clicking on the link directly below this statement. Thank you for indulging me.)

New Written Correspondence Revealed Between Hillary Clinton and America-Hating Marxist Saul Alinsky

“When is that new book coming out–or has it come and I somehow missed the fulfillment of Revelation? I have just had my one-thousandth conversation about Reveille and need some new material to throw at people,” wrote Hillary Clinton to the author Alinsky, who taught about overthrowing capitalism and replacing it with communism, teaching the amoral “ends justify the means” philosophy and destroying America’s middle class.

Saul Alinsky, considered the “father of community organizing,” i.e., rabble-rousing, or agitating, is literally worshiped by progressive leftist communists and socialists, devoted his life to organizing a revolution against the American system he believed to be unfair and oppressive.

“I miss our biennial conversations,” Clinton wrote Alinsky, indicating a much closer relationship with the fellow progressive Marxist than had been previously admitted. “Do you ever make it out to California? I am living in Berkeley and working in Oakland for the summer and would love to see you,” she wrote Alinsky.

Today, a great number of communities are actually run by NGO members as city and county governments are staffed by NGO members. They serve on local unelected boards and regional councils that the NGOs helped to create. Local representative government is slowly relinquishing its power to the NGOs.

Americans must begin to understand that the debate over environmental issues have very little to do with clean water and air and much more to do with the establishment of power. NGOs are gaining it, locally elected officials are losing it as the structure of American government changes to accommodate the private agendas of NGOs.
-Tom DeWeese

This in my opinion is a must read, I believe it will help you undertand what is happening in Elk County.
Even though our school board spent a lot of money for advice and for surveys they just ignored all of it!
Try asking yourself, "Why ignore an expensive survey about building a larger school building at the cost of millions, when the survey clearly shows the voters don't want it? Why, spend thousands on an unnecessary vote when you already proved the outcome with a survey? The answer is easy ---- control.

Why continue to push when you have been told "NO"?
It is the want and desire to manipulate and control (in my opinion) --- that's why!

Couldn't that be the actions of some NGO that is perhaps involved in City Governments and County Government and School District Government? Isn't that a possiblity?

Shouldn't we want individuals in these elected positions that don't belong to NGO's, that don't do the bidding of the NGO’s? Don't we need people that respect the voter’s whishes?

Doesn't Elk County deserve better service from its elected officials?

Please read the small article at: http://www.newswithviews.com/DeWeese/tom252.htm and see and understand the big picture! It's all about a covert action to control, to dominate.

Just like Global Warming which was renamed Climate Change which came about because of a consensus (a vote) not because of scientific proof.

What is a consensus?

Con•sen•sus
Noun, often attributive \kən-ˈsen(t)-səs\
: a general agreement about something : an idea or
Opinion that is shared by all the people in a group

It may be a very small group of people (3 to 10 people).
It may be 50 or 75 people where the population may be 2000 people or more, otherwise a very small fraction of those that it concerns.

Can you determine how easily a consensus
can be deceiving?

Doesn't a consensus just plain suck?

Amen!

Don't know what anyone would support an NGO like Elk Konnected or its principles.  Shouldn't Americans oppose them and socialism?

Well doggie in todays newspaper front page, bad news for Howard and a call for help for money in the way of donations.


The headline:

Howard looks for ways
to keep its pool

Ring -Ring
---

Hello Elk Konnected can you sit up some chairs in circles and get some Kindergarten Stars and hold a Konnected Kommunity Konversation for Howard?  Perhaps 10  or 20 people might show up and you can get a concensus to help poor, poor Howard.

Wouldn't that be the decent thing for you to do? Unless you just don't like a real community in distress.

I have a suggestion for you, ask them folks that are making millions off the wind farm to attend the Konnected Kommunity Konvrsation. You know the ones that own the land. Perhaps they can spare some ot that easy money and build you an inside swimming pool. Kool huh! A little alinsky and "BAM" a brand new inside swimming pool.

Just a couple of thoughts and ideas for you Elk Konnected.

The call for help is on the frot page of this weeks paper, will it be Elk Konnected to the rescue?

We will have to wait and see. Perhaps they are to busy to help out the little guy?
Perhaps they are working on their fiirst few County Commissioners when they possibly regain control of the Elk County Government by having two out of three county commissioners that will perhaps do their bidding? That would be the controlling votes 2 out of 3.

We have to wait until next year to see what happens I guess. I've already heard there are plans to spend taxpayer money to hire another Economic Development Employee, full time no less. And I don't think there is any desire to explain why or how it would benefit all the taxpayers i Elk County. What and how are they gonna develop anything? These are the two questions that should be required to be answered before any hiring happens and answered in great detail. Don't you folks out there think you should have some answers?
