Do we have anarchy or a vaudeville show?

Do we have anarchy or a vaudeville show?

Dearborn county meetings show signs of both anarchy and vaudeville. As Captain Queeg of the Caine Mutiny said “I kid you not.”

The latter, vaudeville, was demonstrated the night that the Cincinnati TV station WCPO captured on film for all eternity the famous order shouted to the uniformed and armed police officer by a respected town father of St Leon, “ Throw him out before I knock him out.” For amusement and edification that film clip has made the rounds in places far distant from Dearborn County. Perhaps the shouter, Mr. Farrow, has become a media star.

As for the former we have the anomalous meeting during which Thom Hammond, who was on the agenda to plead his case was hectored by our County attorney. Even a piece of the Miranda Rights was quoted to Hammond. Was a commissioner or the county attorney about to order the uniformed police officer to arrest Hammond? Why else was a quote from the Miranda Rights made? Hammond was occasionally interrupted by Mr. Ewbank and finally shut down by our Honorable Commissioner Mr. Jeff Hughes. This is all disgusting. With Mr. Ewbank’ s legal schooling one would assume that he believes in a well ordered meeting without interrupting a citizen pleading his cause.

Clearly Roberts’ Rules of Order are not followed here in Dearborn County. A nice used copy of Robert’s Rules of Order can purchased from Amazom.com for all of 3.53 dollars each and a new copy might be 6.95 dollars. Perhaps the county council should authorize the purchase of two or three copies of this universally respected manual. It is a thin little book, almost as thin as a book that could be complied about the ways in which the DCEDI respects the ordinary taxpayers of Dearborn County. Once the authorized used copies arrive we can get one of our retired school teachers to slooowly, very slooowly read it to our officials. The retired teacher would be paid the conventional Vieste fee of 300 dollars an hour plus expenses.

Hectored, by a common shyster.

A common piece of filth.

A common piece of filth who thinks because he stinks the most, somehow he has the loudest voice?

This common bastard needs to be taken to the curb.

I suggest the Bright Beacon do a story on this common bastard and piece of filth.

Stand up.

Thom Hammond: An artist with water colors...

Bob Ewbank: An artist...of nothing...nothing...nothing...

...which is why he is forever left to filtering and straining festering leech lines...for any value that may percolate his way...

…and John Maxwell would not have it any other way.

"anarchy or vaudeville Show?"

How about monarchy? It is not a case of no one controlling the county, as much as, a case of a single interest ruling the county.

With a monarchy, Roberts Rules of Order are unnecessary.

How about a "Bobarchy?"

However, historically speaking, a "Bobarchy" is usually short-lived, being only a retard away from being voted out of office, don't ya know!

Who will the retard be?



Just one retard will do!

...as promised by their Bob.

Jeff, how are the phone calls going? Your nonsense is so pathetic. So many people in this county are fed up and ready to stand up because you act so dumb.

It has been "Bobbited" for some time!

I wonder where John Maxwell keeps it?

For Bob's sake, lets hope it is on ice!

Public officials take note!

Don't mess with old people!! They have had years to plan their sneakiness.

George Phillips (a sprightly 83 year old) of Meridian, Mississippi was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. (Boy does this sound familiar!)

George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked 'Is someone in your house?' and he said 'no, as I said just a second ago they are in my garden shed'.
Then the police operator said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.
George said, 'Okay,' hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.

'Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed.' The operator said they remembered the call and that the patrol cars were still not available to go to his house.
George said, “well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot them.' Then he hung up.

Within three minutes three police cars, an Armed Response Unit, and an ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George: 'I thought you said that you'd shot them!'

George said, 'I thought your operator said there was nobody available!'

The morale of this is …… Don't mess with old people!! They have had years to plan their sneakiness.

A disgruntled old voter!

Tax his land,
Tax his wage,
Tax his bed in which he lays.
Tax his tractor,
Tax his mule,
Teach him taxes is the rule.
Tax his cow,
Tax his goat,
Tax his pants,
Tax his coat.

Tax his ties,
Tax his shirts,
Tax his work,
Tax his dirt.

Tax his tobacco,
Tax his drink,
Tax him if he tries to think.

Tax his booze,
Tax his beers,
If he cries,
Tax his tears.

Tax his bills,
Tax his gas,
Tax his notes,
Tax his cash.

Tax him good and let him know
That after taxes, he has no dough.

If he hollers,
Tax him more,
Tax hi m until he's good and sore.

Tax his coffin,
Tax his grave,
Tax the sod in which he lays.
Put these words upon his tomb,
'Taxes drove me to my doom!'

And when he's gone, We won't relax,
We'll still be after the inheritance TAX!!
Accounts Receivable Tax
Building Permit Tax
CDL License Tax
Cigarette Tax
Corporate Income Tax
Dog License Tax
Federal Income Tax
Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)
Fishing License Tax
Food License Tax
Fuel Perm it Tax
Gasoline Tax
Hunting License Tax
Inheritance Tax
Inventory Tax
IRS Interest Charges (tax on top of tax),
IRS Penalties (tax on top of tax),
Liquor Tax,

Real Estate Tax,
Service charge taxes,
Social Security Tax,
Road Usage Tax (Truckers),

Telephone Recurring and Non-recurring Charges Tax,
Telephone State and Local Tax,
Telephone Usage Charge Tax,
Utility Tax,
Vehicle License Registration Tax,
Vehicle Sales Tax,
Watercraft Registration Tax,
Well Permit Tax,
Workers Compensation Tax.

Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago,
and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
We had absolutely no national deb t, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.

What happened? Can you spell 'politicians!'

And I still have to 'press
1' for English.

Has Chuck Andres read John Maxwell the riot act for not hooking up to his sewers?

Of course not!

Chuck would not want to upset such a symbiotic scamming association he has with John!
