I just heard from one of my PFF’s (Patriot Friend Forever) and Bart told me that he had written a ‘Letter to the Editor’ concerning the November 8th Election.  He had submitted it to both of the local newspapers…The Durham Herald Sun and the Raleigh News & Observer.

Notice the DARK TINTED windows on the Hybrid Bus. This is done so that you can NOT see that there are only 4 riders per bus.

Below is the text of Bart’s submission:

NO to Transit, NO to Education

Durham County Commissioner Chairman, Michael Page, admitted that the two increases (The Transit & Education referenda) are on the ballot this year (Nov. 8, 2011 election) to clear the way for a property tax increase next year. 

So our City and County governments plans not two, but FOUR tax hikes for us in the next year or so.

Let’s just look at the TRANSIT issue for a moment; While you’re out and about in Durham, and one of those DATA buses passes you by, try to look inside. The windows are either painted or have a very dark tint so that it’s hard to see, but if you catch the sunlight just right, you’ll notice that there are only 4-6 people on each bus. Now, keep in mind that these are NEW HYBRID Buses! Hybrid buses cost Durham $535,000.00 a piece and we just bought in them in 2009!

“The total cost for the 20 hybrid buses is $10.7 million.”

Yes Ma’am….that’s a good deal. 10.7 MILLION DOLLARS for transportation, for our Illegal Immigrant Friends (remember we’re a Sanctuary City but that’s a whole other issue)

Now, the Education Referenda;  Isn’t that what the NC Education Lottery is for? To fund our Public Schools?
And the Durham City Council is proposing a special increase on the property tax on all downtown business under the so-called green BID program (Business Improvement District) for May 2012. 

BID = This increase is a 12.6% TAX INCREASE on all real and personal property within the BID boundary. That $10.00 lunch plate downtown will NOW cost you $11.26. Those $42.00 tickets to see a show at the DPAC are now $47.30 each.

And lastly, how about that fancy, shmancy, HIGH DEF COLOR info sheet that the Durham voters received this past week. The one mailed out, From Willoughby, Ohio and sent by the “Durham County Public Information Office”. The one that explains how we NEED to vote YES on both of these Tax Increases…..Hummm????? I wonder how much THAT little gem cost the taxpayers?

How much MORE can the citizens of Durham County Stand? I say, NOT ANOTHER PENNY! Or Half Penny or Quarter Penny. NOTHING.

Bart also told me that he got a call on Tuesday Morning from one of his buddies who told him that his letter was in the “Print Edition of the Herald Sun”. So, I wanted to see it. I’ve gone to the ONLINE edition of the Herald Sun several times since yesterday and it’s not there. Then it dawned on me.  The Durham Herald Sun has lost majority of it’s subscribers (due to it’s liberal agenda) and folks that still want keep up with Durham ‘Happenings’ they now use the Online edition…It’s free!

Notice NO LTE's ----Screengrab taken 10/26/11 at ~ 10am. Click for larger image

Well, being  a fellow ‘Durhamite” I too have noticed on many days that there is NO Letters to the Editor and now I understand WHY—– They don’t publish, ONLINE, anything that goes against the Liberal Mentality!

Notice the nice EMPTY Flag Pole outside of the Herald Sun Building in Durham. You know Liberals HATE the American Flag and anything Patriotic!

August 18, 2011 – Obama: The Affirmative Action President – By Matt Patterson

Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack Obama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages.  How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

 

Imagine a future historian examining Obama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer”; a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, so often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.  He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as legislator.

Jeremiah Wright - Obama's Spritual Mentor for over 20 years

And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as Obama’s “spiritual mentor”; a real-life, actual terrorist who served as Obama’s colleague and political sponsor.  It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking:      How on Earth was such a man elected president?

 

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal:

“To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. Obama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberaldom to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were a bit extreme, he was given a pass.”

Bill Ayers of the Weather Underground.

Let that sink in: Obama was given a pass — held to a lower standard — because of the color of his skin.  Podhoretz continues:

“And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?”

 

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the Obama phenomenon — affirmative action.  Not in the legal sense, of course.  But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves. 

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back.  Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow.  Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action.  Yes, racist.  Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin — that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.  And that is what America did to Obama.

True, Obama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be?  As many have noted, Obama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record inIllinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate.  All his life, every step of the way, Obama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.  What could this breed if not the sort of empty  narcissism on display every time Obama speaks?

In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about Obama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character.  Those people — conservatives included — ought now to be deeply embarrassed.  The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his teleprompter in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all.  Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth — it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years.

 

And what about his character?  Obama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles.  Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess.  It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerlessness, so comfortable with his own incompetence.  But really, what were we to expect?  The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small and small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job.  When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense.  It could not have gone otherwise with such a man in the Oval Office.

 

But hey, at least we got to feel good about ourselves for a little while.  And really, isn’t that all that matters these days?

Update: 

Author’s Note.  A lot of readers have written in asking me how I came to the conclusion that Obama was an unremarkable student and that he benefited from affirmative action.  Three reasons:

 

1)  As reported by The New York Sun: “A spokesman for the university, Brian Connolly, confirmed that Mr. Obama spent two years at Columbia College and graduated in 1983 with a major in political science. He did not receive honors…”  In spite of not receiving honors as an undergrad, Obama was nevertheless admitted to Harvard Law.  Why? 

2)  Obama himself has written he was a poor student as a young man.  As theBaltimoreSun reported, in: 

 

“‘Obama’s book ‘Dreams from My Father,’….the president recalled a time in his life…when he started to drift away from the path of success. ‘I had learned not to care,’ Obama wrote. ‘… Pot had helped, and booze; maybe a little blow when you could afford it.’ But his mother confronted him about his behavior. ‘Don’t you think you’re being a little casual about your future?” she asked him, according to the book. ‘… One of your friends was just arrested for drug possession. Your grades are slipping. You haven’t even started on your college applications.'”  

3)  Most damning to me is the president’s unwillingness to make his transcripts public.  If Obama had really been a stellar student with impeccable grades as an undergrad, is there any doubt they would have been made public by now and trumpeted on the front page of the New York Times as proof of his brilliance?  To me it all adds up to affirmative action.

Update: July 13, 2013

                        

“Now a Federal judge in D. C. has added insult to injury. He has awarded lawyers who soaked the taxpayers over $90 million dollars. The Blog of Legal Times reports:”

http://www.beaufortobserver.net/Articles-NEWS-and-COMMENTARY-c-2013-07-13-267837.112112-Lawyers-get-over-90-million-in-Kay-Hagan-supported-IPigfordI-settlement.html

********* End of Updates *********

 

Kay Hagan and her involvement with The Pigford Settlement (aka Taxpayer Fraud).

Follow the links for the info. 1st off, here’s Traitor Hagan’s Press Release

http://hagan.senate.gov/?id=1379&p=press_release

Then we have a NC paper pointing out the issue of 94K vs. 18K

http://www.beaufortobserver.net/Articles-c-2010-11-23-248996.112112-Hagan-pushes-Pigford-II.html

But here’s the problem. The $1.15 billion Sen. Hagan is talking about is said to be destined for 94,000 farmers. The problem is that, according to testimony before the House Judiciary Committee by John Boyd, the president of the National Black Farmers Association, there have never been more than 18,000 black farmers inAmerica.
