New Bill to prevent Boone from Tapping New River

Are our candidates trying to hand control bak to the Democrats? Again, another "small government" conservative overstepping to hurt local government. This is frustrating!

I cannot believe this bill. What are our guys smoking?

Boone is not the only local government. The people in Watauga county outside the Boone corporate limits and the people of Ashe county also deserve representation.

Wolf's Head said...

BRAVO!!!!!!

Ashe county resident HAVE RIGHTS ALSO.

Placing them under Boone's onerous Town Council zoning for watershed rules would deny them their rights.

NewGuy said...

Exactly Guy....and the people in Todd and in Ashe County have been pretty vocal about not wanting Boone to pull New River water and to discharge their treated waste water back into the river.

Liberal socialist sheep pov,

What is relevant about your comment? It makes zero sense. You quoted a liberal socialist who can't keep a blog running. So what?

Are you agreeing or disagreeing with Boone taking water from the New River? What difference does it make where Boone or Blowing Rock discharges sewer?

Please explain or else you might be ready for removal. LOL!! What a dolting idiot!!!!!

Johnathan Jordan just pounded Boone. This is good news. Why should Boone get the water and Todd not? I believe Boone and Blowing Rock did an interconnection agreement two years ago which was supposed to solve water problems for both entities, right?

With help from RINO Congresswomen Virginia Foxx via the infamous Blowing Rock Land Trade, Blowing Rock has the potential to expand the resevoir which will feed more water to Boone, right? POV, do you and JW and the rest of the lemmings remember refusing to comment on Virginia Foxx's and Sentor Burr's actions on the Blowing Rock land trade? You know, when they lied to local residents to protect the viewsheds of corrupt Blowing Rock Town Council members? Why did you liberals refuse to comment on someone you claim to hate so much? Strange.

Anyway, there are no water problems with Blowing Rock or Boone now folks. Those problems were solved with Congressional Action in 2005 by Virginia Foxx and Richard Burr. Of course, local citizens were barred from taking part in this Congressional Action while the Town of Blowing Rock was invited to participate months before.

Virginia Foxx, many of us won't forget the Blowing Rock land trade and will try and vote you out next time. You lied to residents and deserve to be put out of a job. Same for Richard Burr. Both are lying, corrupt, vile RINOs who traded rights of local citizens for a couple votes.

Johnathan Jordan on the other hand, is standing tall in the face of liberal socialists. Good job Jordan. You deserve another term to serve me, the taxpayer.

USS Rodger Young said...

Go Johnny Jordan!!! Take it to Boone and the socialists who claim to be conservationists, yet only seem to care about raping the mountains and building more homes. Funny how liberals like POV or JW will yap and blabber about mountaintop coal removal, yet they do the same thing to NC mountains with their homes and developments. Hypocrisy!!! Glad to see a politician taking it to liberals.

USS Rodger Young said...

The idiots in Boone, including Watauga County Commissioners, except Vince Gable, are too stupid to think of solutions to the water problem. How about dredging Boone Town Resevoir? Or creating other resevoirs? Too busy trying to take rights away from local citizens to do that.

The deputies that have been taken away from patrol duties to patrol the Watauga County Courthouse are an example. Citizens are now treated like criminals when they walk into the courthouse. And to think a water problem is going to be solved by the Watauga County elected thugs is just too much for me.

This is why we need folks like Johnathan Jordan who DO SOMETHING.

Anonymous said...

Go ahead and throw Vince in there, too. What has he done besides propose a sales tax increase and expand the county government? He is just like the rest of the RINOs.

USS Rodger Young said...

Timid Nonymouse,

Vince Gable is a hero. He stood up to the Town of Blowing Rock during a hearing designed to take away 2nd Amendment Rights away from ALL United States Citizens. He was eloquent in his persuasive speech - a speech that liberals from Blowing Rock and elsewhere were unable to refute. In the end the liberals beat out lazy conservatives, but Vince Gable made quite an impression.

He is the only County Commissioner that I hope is re-elected.

The rest of the RINOs have DONE NOTHING. They've had years to give rights back to Watauga County citizens and have failed to do so in even one instance. Heck, Dan Souchek is giving us more rights in Watauga County through good legislation than the peep mouse County Commissioners. Vote them all out during the next election and let's try another crop of thugs.

Anyone want to comment on Richard Burr and his lying attitudes towards Watauga County voters? During the infamous Blowing Rock Land Trade, Richard Burr invited the National Park Service to speak before Congress to help convince committee members to vote for the land trade. What Burr and his cronies (Virginia Foxx) won't tell you is that Watauga County residents were begging Burr and Foxx for a voice in the land trade. After it was found out that the National Park Service was invited to speak (on a deal that benefited them of course), Burr's constituient representative told Watauga County residents to put their concerns in writing and that those comments would become part of Congressional Record AFTER a vote had taken place. Amazing. Richard Burr and Virginia Foxx aided a corrupt Town in defrauding citizens of 110 acres of land and liberals supported them. Not a word from JW, povs, shylock, tricycle lard or any of the other idiots.

If we can't hold Burr and Foxx accountable for defrauding citizens, then how do you expect we will hold hussein obama accountable for socialism?

If we can't hold cullie tarleton and sheriff lyn hagaman accountable for refusing to demand deportation of illegal alien gang members from Watauga High School, then how do you expect to hold a President accountable for choosing illegal aliens over United States citizens via yesterday's amnesty?

Boone's drawdown from the New River should be cut, right now, by 25%. How come you never hear liberals trying to control growth by limiting the natural resources they claim to hold so dear? Dolts.

Any "progressives" care to comment or are you busy running away from yet another tough question? LOL!!!

Johnny Whacko, How much longer till you bloviate to hear yourself ramble on about how well you are doing at the gym. You know how you are looisng inches from everywhere but your bust. The one that all the men and women stare at?

Also if you have to go to the gym to loose those inches doesn't that mean you let yourself get fat in the 1st place ? Not that some men or women are not attracted to fat women.

USS Rodger Young said...

Gather around class for a look into how a liberal socialist reacts when beaten soundly in an arguement.

The poster above ignores a host of tough questions in an emotional laced tirade designed to off-line the topic of conversation. What does a gym workout by Johnny Rico have to do with what I said in the above posts? I know it must be frustating to see your belief system shattered in mere seconds by a wee freedom fighter, but can't you do a bit better than this?

Class, after attacking with emotion, most liberals will simply quit. They have no other choice really. That is what will occur here as well.

With intonations concerning another person's weight, the poster has relegated him/herself (which is why they post anonmously)to a lower class. Typical liberalism.

So nonymouse, you believe that gym rats go there because they are fat? Quite a supposition. I've been a member of one gym or another all my life - does your hypothethis say I've been fat all my life? And if I am fat, then what does that mean?

If you must know, I've been fit most of my life. As a collegiate athlete, I was empowered as a young women to rejoice in a fit and decent looking body. This may be a bit vain, but I'm glad my conservative parents empowered me to health, God, and prosperity. I may dwell a bit on my bust (my breasts seem to gain fat and not lose it like the rest of my body, but that's ok), but is that a crime or do you have a problem with it?

Yes, most men, and some women, do look, stare, google, and eye my bust. It is large, so large it hurts my back, but that's why they have lat. pulldown machines, right? The Wellness Center is an excellant place, and working out there is as much a social event as anything. Because liberals like you have regulated community gatherings out of existance, I find the gym to help bridge the gap somewhat. So yes, I try to look my best in front of the community. As for being fat, I have found the older I get the harder I work for less results. Fat is formulating in places it never did before. Life I guess.

At any rate, do you plan to take issue with any of my posts or does your silence mean you agree with everything I said? LOL!!!! This is so fun.

Johhny Whacko , you really need some help with your multiple personality issues. In your long worded rambling post you not only refer to your self as Johnny Whacko, but as Rodger Young. In your post you speak in the fist and second person while speaking about yourself. Which of the voices in your head was posting that time?

By the ugly and nasty tone your posts normally reflect when even close to rational, they tell me that your probably as unattractive on the outside as inside.

That being true i would not venture a second if even a first glance at you .

USS Rodger Young said...

tsk tsk tsk nonymouse. Are we a wee bit mad today? Beaten again and lashing out hoping someone will come to your rescue? Hope is not a strategy my friend. LOL!

Class, we reconvene yet again to see a continuation of the liberal socialist mantra. Emotion is again the order of the day. Unable to provide even a semblence of a response to my well reasoned posts, the nonymouse socialist lemming continues to deride me as a person. Class, this is always a mistake. Liberals never gain anything from attacking with emotion. Look at the attempted attack on Romney for example when fringe left socialists tried to dredge up something that happened when he was in high school. It was swept aside as easily as I sweep nonymouse aside.

Class, the best thing to do in a situation like this one is to refer back to the thing that pissed said liberal off in the first place. He/she is obviouly frustrated over any number of comments I made concerning a wide range of topics. So we will bring the arguement back to those issues. Said liberal, not wanting to show how morally bankrupt he/she is, will either quit or continue to dodge the question.

Well, nonymouse, please enlighten the class. Will you engage my posts, continue with your one line, emotional laced quips, or just quit? LOL!!! I have a lot of postings for you to answer my lemming-like friend. LOL!!!

Oh and class, it's ok to end a liberal blasting-session by referring back to some inane commemnt they made. It makes them look unusually stupid.

Nonymouse, you say you wouldn't give me a second glance. I take that to mean you never go to the Wellness Center. Does this mean you're a fat person because you don't go to the gym? Low self-esteem maybe? Because if you did go to the Wellness Center, you would certainly give me a look or two if for nothing more than to gawk at my bust. It's ok, everyone else does.

Also, some here believe I'm Deborah Greene. I'm not Debbie. She's too good for that folks. And she is better looking than even me (and most men, and a few women at Westglow say I'm nothing to scoff at). Keep guessing you liberal troglydytes. All you have to do is go to the Wellness Center and narrow down the field. Easy really. LOL!!!!!!!!

Nonymouse, the bust, I mean ball's, in your court. LOL!!!!!

Rodger Young

USS Rodger Young said...

Nonymouse,

Looks like you've quit. Class, nonymouse may have already conceeded. One lesson here class is to never let them off the hook. Make them KNOW that you know that you beat them.

Like this:

nonymouse, was it hard to quit or is quitting part of your personality? No matter which, you were beaten and were unable to answer even one of my freedom posts.

Then, class, end it with one last jab:


LOL!!!

Class,

Hence the troglydyte has been banished.

An interesting article about "Johhny Whacko"

http://io9.com/5919313/reality-check-most-internet-trolls-are-trolls-in-real-life-too

guy faulkes said...

Rico, by her own admission, uses the blog as a means to vent her frustrations with the idiocy of the left. She also backs up what she says with a very good chain of logic and sources for her statements.

While I wish she would go into her learned debate mode more often, she has more fun ramming facts down the throats of the left than she does using the persuasive track.

In any event, not agreeing with her does not give you the moral right to call her a troll.

Anonymous said...

How about when Johhny Whacko rants endlessly to the point no one replies to those rants, then uses that to declare herself a winner on a a web blog ?
Does that give me the right to call her a troll?
Compared to the names and insults she has repeatedly used here to demean anyone not agreeing with her i think troll is a compliment to what she really is.
