Some like the socialism of Obama and some have other preferences like Elk Konnected.

An excerpt from:
Bill Cosby, Camille Cosby
and the
Oppressive Power of Silence

Erica Williams Simon Nov. 20, 2014

And even in the most recent AP video, as Mrs. Cosby sits idly by, the central tension between Mr. Cosby and the reporter revolves around him pressuring the journalist into, what? Silence. He calmly yet persistently requests the editing out of his own "no comment" response to the reporter's request for a statement. Be clear: In the actual interview, Mr. Cosby refused to discuss it, saying "I don't talk about that." It is that exchange that he wants scrubbed from the record. He even wants his silence silenced.

History teaches us that silence is often the most effective tool of power. It forces others into submission. It attempts to control a narrative. It hides things. And it is often a strategic attempt on the part of the powerful to shame other voices – the victims, the oppressed, the challengers, the inquisitors – into a similar silence.

But right now as Missouri police use military tactics and tear gas to force silence upon outraged but peaceful Ferguson protestors and rich executives threaten female reporters who won't stop talking with personal attacks pulled from private investigators (see the latest Uber controversy), silence is not ok.


Is it possible,
that this explains the deafening silence in
Elk County of who is associated or affiliated with
Elk Konnected ?

Inquiring Minds would like to know !


I'm thinking that you're on to something. 

Socialists will not stand for liberty.  Even though the socialist movement in Elk County continues to be quieter on this Forum, they're always lurking about the universe seeking to control you and your money by and thru government.

Stay alert! 


Here is hoping everyone had a great Thanksgiving  weekend.
I had a house full of guest and really enjoyed the time,
even though we received some sad news.

I did lose a nephew to cancer on Thanksgiving shortly after noon to cancer.
He fought the good fight, but it was too difficult to continue, so now he can rest in peace.
We were prepared for our loss and we are satisfied with the Lords decision to take him.
And we are Thankful he no longer suffers the pain and agony of cancer.
He will be missed for a long time to come.


I guess it is official Jennifer Montgomery or Jennifer Brummel.
The City of Howard calls her Jennifer Brummel
and Elk Konnected calls her Jennifer Montgomery
so I am really unsure as what to call her.

But as I was saying, I guess the rumor is official, because I read in the
newspaper today that the City of Howard accepted her resignation.

I wonder now will she return to her home town?

After-all isn't that what Elk Konnected thinks young college graduates should do?
Return to their home towns!

If she does depart from Elk County I wonder how long Elk Konnected will carry her on their Steering Committee on their web site: http://www.publicsquarecommunities.com/communities/elk-konnected/elk-steering-committee/

The silence is deafening from Elk Konnected these days, isn't it?

I bet that changes after the first of the year, don't you?


Yet Another Elk County Rumor !

It seems to me that most of the rumors around Elk County come true.
What do you think?

I understand from one rumor that a couple of the Elk County Road Crew may be either fired or forced to retire. What an attitude on someone's part, huh? How many other Elk County employees should be worried about losing their jobs in 2015?

And another rumor is that County Commissioner Elect that will be seated at the first of the year is planning to have yet another Elk County Economic Development Employee as previously mentioned. But this time the rumor includes additional information.

We were informed that Kaminska was going to bring 4 industries to Longton, weren't we?
But were we told what those industries might be? NO!

Rumor has it that one industry might be a welding shop that one of her relatives wants to open, could that be true?

Is it possible that Kaminska has more relatives that want to start a business in Longton or elsewhere in Elk County?

Is that the possible reason for hiring yet another Elk County Economic Development Employee, to help finance businesses for her relatives?

It has been proven by other educated Elk County Economic Development Employees that they could not achieve anything, hasn't it? Just look around, have you seen any growth? So what is hiring yet another person at $40,000.00 a year plus and the expense of benefits for that employee and the cost of running the office space for them going to do for the taxpayers. If it is about improving local retailers' profits – they have their Chamber of Commerce for that purpose – which does not fall under Economic Development, in my opinion.

If the County Commissioners do not have a solid and sensible plan for an Elk County Economic Development Employee to follow and accomplish during their first year of employment, then it should not happen in my opinion! If the board wants progress they have to plan for it. With no goals to be accomplished it's a waste of time. An employee requirement for the position should be explicit/detailed monthly reports to the board explaining progress in detail. Or no go! No wasting taxpayer dollars. If working with someone, report whom, to the board in an open meeting. And provide documentation.  No secrets!

Will we be starting 2015 with another Elk Konnected Kounty Kommissioners Board?

2015 may prove to be an interesting year
for Elk County
especially in its Government.


Check out this list of wasted taxpayer dollars that need to be cut.

Please notice a few typed in bold red print.

They are Economic Development related and considered a waste of money by Paul Ryan. Really all of them are a form of Economic Development aren't they?
They all use taxpayer dollars to provide for someone else, don't they?

Will Elk County waste tax payer dollars on so called Economic Development in 2015?
Just give that some thought please.

If it is a waste of tax payer money on the Federal Level isn't it a waste of taxpayer money here in Elk County?

It is my personal opinion that any Economic Development ploy in Elk County would simply be a con, a scam against the taxpayers.

I received the following in an e-mail:

Good evening folks.
I have a story to share with you.

I attended the Saturday morning breakfast in Howard at the senior citizens center.
It was to raise money for their transportation section. For every dollar collected the state would match it.
The breakfast was homemade sausage gravy and biscuits and it was real good.

And visiting with the people there was fun too.

The subject of Elk Konnected, LLC was raised, most likely by me. LOL

A lady said Elk Konnected was gone now and I asked what made her think that.
She said, "Because Jennifer was gone now!"

I asked why she thought because Jennifer was gone that Elk Konnected was gone?

She said, "Because Jennifer started Elk Konnected, LLC!"

I had to break the news to her that Liz Hendricks was the self-proclaimed founder of Elk Konnected, LLC.

And she said, "Oh I didn't know that."

Well we discussed the subject awhile longer and discussed the "Old Guard" and a few other things and had a good time laughing and such.

End of story.

I find it amazing just how things get all twisted up, don't you?

We haven't heard anything out of Elk Konnected, LLC in such a long time, some people don't believe they exist any longer. What do you think? I think they still exist, because they are still running their web site.

But now that Jennifer has moved (or so says the rumors) does that leave the Elk Konnected, LLC group with only three members on their steering committee?

Copied and pasted from their web site:
"Vision Statement
Strong families. Solid education. Superior Lifestyle. "Stay with us as we grow!""

I must ask where is the growth Elk Konnected, LLC?
I feel compelled to ask what has Elk Konnected, LLC successfully accomplished?
How does Elk Konnected maintain their accreditation with Public Squares Communities, INC?
Elk Konnected, LLC
Are Public Squares Communities, INC and Elk Konnected, LLC both own by Liz Hendricks?

Will be hearing more of Elk Konnected, LLC after the first of the year when they possibly have two Konnected Elk Kounty Kommissioners on the county board?

It may prove to be an interesting year next year, don't you think?

Kaminska had stated at the Political Forum held at the Longton Free Fair that she wanted to hire another Elk County Economic Development Employee, I ask for what reason?

Would it be for the benefit of Elk Konnected, LLC?
Would it be for the benefit of her relative, that rumor says wants to start a welding shop in Longton?
What are the four industries she said she would bring to Longton?
Would they all be her relatives businesses?

I'm anxious to know some answers, aren't you?

I guess we will just have to sit back and watch and pay attention as to how the next County Commissioners spend our hard earned money, the money, we pay our taxes with, just wait, right?

After all Jonathan Holmes Gruber an American professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology claiming ObamaCare's authors took advantage of the "stupidity of the American voter." It wasn't to smart of an MIT professor to make such a remark was it. But wait a minute Mr. Gruber has the following Awards and Honors according to Wikipedia:

In 2006, Gruber received the American Society of Health Economists Inaugural Medal for the best health economist in the nation aged 40 and under.[15] He was elected a member of the Institute of Medicine in 2005.[16] In 2009 he was elected to the Executive Committee of the American Economic Association.
In 2011 he was named "One of the Top 25 Most Innovative and Practical Thinkers of Our Time" by Slate Magazine. In both 2006 and 2012 he was rated as one of the top 100 most powerful people in health care in the United States by Modern Healthcare Magazine.

So really does all that education really make a person smart?

He called us stupid, didn't he? Was that a smart move on his part? Such a conundrum, huh?

Even Democratic Congressman Elijah Cummings Savages Gruber: 'Absolutely Stupid,' 'Incredibly Disrespectful'. But congressman Gruber has an education with degrees and everything, how can he be stupid?

Are we stupid?
Or will we be smart enough to be vigil in our own back yard?

Who will bother attending Elk County Commissioners Meetings next year?

Just some food for thought. Good night folks.


Are the educated really so weak minded and mentally deficient?
They must be very fragile just read on!
It's all over the internet.
Law Students and Gruber --- Wow just WOW !

Columbia Law School Delays Finals for Students Upset by Garner, Ferguson
by Josh Feldman | 6:25 pm, December 9th, 2014

"The law school has a policy and set of procedures for students who experience trauma during exam period."


And the Pussification of America Continues: Columbia Law School Allows Students To Postpone Finals Because of Emotional Trauma From Ferguson and Eric Garner Cases

"This has to be fake life right?  Like this has to be an Onion article or something?  Columbia Law School is really letting their students postpone finals because of Trauma suffered from the Ferguson and Eric Garner cases??


Definition of Trauma - Definition from the Free Merriam ...
trau·ma noun \ˈtrau̇-mə, ˈtrȯ-\
: a very difficult or unpleasant experience that causes someone to have mental or emotional problems usually for a long time

medical : a serious injury to a person's body

Social Injustice Ate My Homework

Harvard law students have been taught to think like spoiled children.


Harvard Prof. Sends Angry Emails to Restaurant Owner over 4 Dollars



I (Ross) must ask as a Professor demanding that his perceived overcharge of $4 be paid back triple, based on law and credited back to his credit card, doesn't he understand, he can not quote law and demand 3X reimbursement? That can only happen in a court of law and a judgement handed down by the court. He must be suffering from trauma just like the students at Harvard that wanted postponement of exams?
