  • Completely O.T. Don't Piss Off A Weldor!

    Interesting pdf, nice guy po'd at local government and uses his talent as a weldor to make his last stand.
    The guy showed considerable talent in design and fabrication to make his point. Sometimes diplomacy just doesn't get the point across. I feel sad it had to end like it did. Just found out about this today...

        Only OSHA has ever worried regarding welding fumes which a weldEr breathes, sometimes starting at birth. But I wish he had protected his Cat's radiator a little better-------

        Colorado, seems to do something to peoples' minds, air too thin?

        How about the dozer operator who pushed a multi-ton boulder over the side of a berm onto oncoming auto traffic? Mom and kids killed. Colorado says, 'An act of nature'. Insurance companies for the state and the construction company: Correct, act of nature---- we can't hear you.

            This is where us old geezers can be more dangerous than one might think. For some, after a lifetime of being made to jump through hoops and pay for others wellfare checks and free health insurance it's not hard to see how some folks can get pushed off the deep end.

            We have a case in these parts where a guy got a permit to put in a dump. So now he thinks that permit allows him to gobble up all the countryside adjacent to his permitted property and include it. It may get ugly before its over. The neighbors are all seeing red.

            Thank you to our families of soldiers, many of whom have given so much more then the rest of us for the Freedom we enjoy.

            It is true, there is nothing free about freedom, don't be so quick to give it away.

              similar thing to the dump happened up here a while ago, the using the business they pretty much eminent domained some of the more desireable properties in the area, and shut down the company then sold off property at a major profit.

              Had a guy in a small town I lived in for a while, had a small pig farm and didn't realy care for it. Wanted to retire and put in a mud run. Neighbors and township didn't want it so kept harrassing him over it. Kept piling on permits,fees, assesment meetings and legal requirements, Finally got fed up and decided that he would increase production and start raising MORE pigs. Didn't take long for the neighbors to start thinking a mud run was a good idea.
              I didn't mind I was upwind of the place, so thought it was kind of funny.
              that pig farm stink permeates everything and doesn't wash off.

              As for the person in the original post, it's just sad that he died.

                Destroying the public library was downright unethical!

                  I wonder if the town’s officials were able to learn anything from this? Such as how to deal with the people that they are suppose to be representing. Somehow I doubt it.
                  They probably thought if they just pushed him hard enough he would back down and sell, but to their amazement instead he got mad and pushed back. I believe that if more people had his attitude we would have a better country.

                    I'm almost afraid to say it, but my feelings are with the guy. This eminent domain thing can get real unfair. I personally think that if you own a piece of property you should be able to decide not to sell it. PERIOD. OK, I can see that the state, county, or city may have to have such a thing to build roads and such, but for a factory??? Get real.

                    But, he did go too far. Didn't he? So why am I smiling?

                      I agree, too many people are too well trained and roll over when told.
                      I'm not trained that way.

                        thoughts from the 3%

                        Terrorists are mostly just people that have been pushed too far and have no ethical way of fighting back. Governments need to learn respect for property rights and figure out that a free society is way more productive than a tyranical one.

                          Here is a video link of "The Killdozer". It's got some sweet music from the old animated "Transformers" movie.

                            Another crooked cop. government franchise.

                            Local news: another sherriff arrested locally here.
                            PDF: Federal complaint against Hamilton County Sheriff Billy Long

                            Hamilton County Sheriff Billy Long made his initial appearance in U.S. Magistrate Court today in handcuffs, listening with his head bowed as a judge read extortion, money laundering and gun charges against him.

                            Sheriff Long was arrested this morning by the FBI on charges he had shaken down local Indian store owners for money and received payoffs for allowing a drug trafficking and money laundering operation between April 2007 and Jan. 24, said Assistant U.S. Attorney Gary Humble.

                            He is accused of accepting 12 payments totaling $17,400, representing what he was told were payments from the store owners to protect their video poker business and other illegal activity.

                            He also allegedly received five cash payments totaling $6,550 for allowing the laundering of $625,000 in drug trafficking proceeds, Mr. Humble said during Mr. Long’s brief hearing.

                            A hearing to determine whether Mr. Long — who is being held in federal custody in an undisclosed location — will be granted bond is set for 2 p.m. Monday.

                            Sheriff Long was elected in August 2006. He worked in the sheriff’s office for 31 years before retiring to make his bid for sheriff.

                            The Lafayette Ga. policeman was finally charged with the murder of his wife, this was after he was fired for having explosives in his locker at work. It has been a public fact he bragged about hiding the body, bragged he could and did do it and never would be caught.

                            Three more Chattanooga Policemen were arrested for extortion.

                            There is a state patrol living about a half mile from here, in a million dollar home, paid for. Kinda makes you wonder don't it?

                            My thoughts: Yeah, the government is pretty corrupt. Look at the election.. Gallup poll called me.. I wish I had taped my response to the questions about the candidates.

                            The recent law changes that a individual's property can be siezed for the "good of the community" was interesting also.

                            Kinda makes you want to take a bulldozer and ride down to talk to them.

                              6 dead after shooting spree at Missouri town council meeting

                              Gunman had history with local leaders

                              KIRKWOOD, Mo. — A gunman carrying a grudge against City Hall left a suicide note on his bed warning "The truth will come out in the end," before he went on a deadly shooting spree at a council meeting, his brother told The Associated Press on Friday.

                              Arthur Thornton, 42, said in an interview at the family's home he knew when he read the one-line note that Charles Lee "Cookie" Thornton was the man who stormed the meeting Thursday night and killed five people before police shot him dead.

                              "It looks like my brother is going crazy, but he's just trying to get people's attention," Thornton said. The note, which police now have, reflected his brother's growing frustration with local leaders, he said.

                              Friends and relatives said the dead gunman had a long-standing feud with the city, and he had lost a federal free-speech lawsuit against the St. Louis suburb just 10 days earlier. At earlier meetings, he said he had received 150 tickets against his business.

                              The victims were identified Friday as Public Works Director Kenneth Yost, Officer Tom Ballman, Officer William Biggs and council members Michael H.T. Lynch and Connie Karr. Flowers and balloons were placed outside City Hall Friday in their honor.
