MEDIOCRITY WINS AGAIN— PROGRESS & PROSPERITY LOSES!
Against all the odds, the voters in the ‘Medieval Fiefdom’ of Pocahontas County again chose ‘mediocrity’ over the more progressive choices for Social Justice placed before them! Yesterday’s Primary Election results saw county commission candidate DAVID McLAUGHLIN win the Democrat ballot for the Northern District, and incumbent BILL BEARD, Jr. win in the Southern District – now they will have to compete against Republican candidates CHARLES WILFONG – ND & NORMAN LEE ALDERMAN – SD, respectively! And in relation to the ‘platform’ or ‘program’ towards making Pocahontas County a better and more prosperous community – both David & Bill TOOK NO PARTICULAR POSITION ON ANYTHING – they just copied a couple of ideas from the other candidates and repeated them as an echo!
The real losers in the county are the majority of Citizens who did not vote, and those that did vote by voting for ‘mediocrity’ instead of progress! Another six-years of having ‘hand-puppets’ for commissioners, as we’ve had for the last six years – and you voters will have no one to blame but YOURSELVES! The really good aspect of the primary election was to make current county commissioner David Fleming into a ‘lame-duck’ commissioner (however much David prefers ‘chickens’) for the next seven months since he caused a lot of havoc in the last six-years he has been on the commission. At least now David will not have to continually hide his ‘true-residency’ – at least after the next seven months that is – for if he really doesn’t live in the northern district, then he will be automatically disqualified – no need for a resignation!
Now here’s a glimpse of what the new commission will have to face – no matter who wins in November and takes office in January 2015:
♦ The Feds set to carve-out-of-circulation their
123,000+ acres FROM Pocahontas County for
their own private ‘Sherwood Forest’ & new federal
police force; then…
♦ Donald Trump (who now owns 60% of Snowshoe
Mountain, Inc.) is set to carve-out-of-circulation
another 12 - 15,000+ acres for his private-corporate-
municipal-political-subdivision FROM Pocahontas
County as the Snowshoe Resort Area District
(SRAD); and prepares to build another ‘Trump-
Casino’ & sell it to the owner of ‘The Greenbrier Inn’
to operate & manage! Oh, don’t worry there will be a
few more ‘minimum-wage’ jobs to go around – no
one is willing to disturb the ‘poverty & pauperism’ of
this county; and then…
♦ The State DOH is poised to carve-out-of-circulation
FROM Pocahontas County thousands-of-acres for a
‘four-lane’ right down the valley besides Rt. 92 to
connect I-64 with Corridor-H to accommodate both
Snowshoe-RAD/Casino and the ‘new federal park’;
♦ The best of the county-owned land being taken
FROM Pocahontas County and GIVEN FOR FREE to
the self-serving private-corporation, Greenbrier
Valley Economic Development Corporation
(GVEDC) – so as to enrich these thieves & deceivers
even more…think of the ‘development’ they can
create and then collect more rent from...SO…
♦ WHAT will be left for the residents of this county –
Continued ‘minimum-wages’ but with higher-taxes,
higher-utility-sewage bills, higher-cost
communication services, higher-cost insurance
rates, higher cost-of-living, higher-property-taxes for
the Board of Education salaries & such; and higher
expenses on all sides living in a ‘tourist-trap’? –
♦ WHO do we thank for all this Poverty & Pauperism?
The ‘titular-heads’ of the ‘Poverty Preservation
Society’ (PPS), like GVEDC members, Phillip Cain,
Joel Callison, David Fleming, Bill Beard, Jr. & now
David McLaughlin, plus groups like the county
Chamber of Commerce & Tourist Commission? Who
should get more credit than any other in their
collective BETRAYAL of The Common Good for
Pocahontas County in place of Self & Special
Are we ‘sore-losers’ since the Progressives on the ballot lost the election? NO! We set the ISSUES, we put the ITEMS on the table, we told YOU FIRST what to expect – and you didn’t believe us – but you will when you see what is coming soon enough – only too late! No the real ‘sore-loser’ is Kenneth ‘Buster’ Varner since HE WAS BETRAYED BY THE ‘MASONIC-BLOG-VOTE’! Both the ‘Masonic-fertility-cult-priests’ and the ‘Daughters-of-Isis’ received their ‘marching-orders’ to vote for David McLaughlin (since he takes orders & is easy to control), and for Bill Beard, Jr. (since he’s already ‘one-of-their-own’ & a ‘lap-dog’ for Phil Cain & the GVEDC)! Nope, it was good-buddy-Buster that got the royal-shaft, or should we say, ‘Potentate-Staff’, since he’s a little too much independent to take orders all the time! As for Fleming, well he was useful for the ‘Poverty Preservation Society’ (PPS), but he became too much of a liability with so many ‘skeletons’ in his closet – so the puppet-strings were put on McLaughlin, as they are on Beard!
And also as we predicted, southern district candidate Sarah Burt-Kinderman-Riley fulfilled her ‘drama-role’ in the county-play by being the ‘drama-queen-ringer’ we said she would become as her total vote, plus that of progressive Shay Huffman, would have been sufficient to have defeated Bill Beard, Jr. As we said, YOU THE VOTERS & Citizens of this county are THE REAL LOSERS – once again – as you voted for ‘mediocrity’ instead of progress! So now you can watch the county be sliced-up, cut-up, chewed-up, and spit-out by the likes of Donald Trump and his associates as the county commissioners become ‘bootlickers’, 'footmen' & ‘doormen’ for the rich & infamous!
BUT THERE IS SOME HOPE – and that’s if CHARLES WILFONG & NORMAN LEE ALDERMAN win in November – if so – they will become the new WATCHDOGS for the county and try to keep it FREE, WILD & WONDERFUL! But that’s up to You Voters in November! Try not to make the same mistake twice in one year!
