Will A Reassessment Rebellion Be Repeated In Beaver County? Revisiting The 1982 Revolt

Beaver County’s last property reassessment in 1982 had all the ugly: angry mobs, a KKK Klansman, about 12,000 appeals and, ultimately, a veritable election bloodbath the following year. Thirty-one people sought party nominations for county commissioner in 1983, and voters overturned the entire board for the only time in at least the last 60 years….

Look at the teacher pension fund. FUBAR!
Look at Social Security Fund. Demon-Rats “borrowed” money from that in 1966 to start a really fucked up program called “welfare”. FUBAR!
Then in 2012 Odumbo “borrowed” money from Medicare to fund another fucked up program called “Odumbo Care” FUBAR!
You always hear how S.S. and Medicare is going broke, BUT, you never hear that “welfare” is going broke! FUBAR!
Reassessment means you are FUCKED! FUBAR!

Every time we raise the debt ceiling, we borrow more from Social Security. Fun facts: The debt ceiling was raised 74 times from March 1962 to May 2011, including 18 times under Ronald Reagan, eight times under Bill Clinton, seven times under George W. Bush, and five times under Barack Obama. And what, once or twice under Trump so far? Our debt is expanding astronomically under Trump.

Odumbo raised the national debt from 9 trillion to 20 trillion in 8 short years. More than ALL the POTUS before him combined. You have a severe case of TDS. FUBAR.

BUT- at least Beaver County has world-class shopping and restaurants! Add that to the incredible entertainment venues that drive tourism, and it’s GREAT!

It’s amazing how many of the names from the 1980’s are still involved with County Government.

The same thing is happening everywhere – even on a national level.

The welfare class want money, so businesses and working people are taxed more heavily. Stop handing out money to those who refuse to work. Stop creating fake jobs for family. Decommission the row offices!

But Democrats will do their usual ,”increase taxes” routine, instead of cutting spending.

When BC matches the taxes of other counties, there will be a mass exodus. WHY stay in BC??

There are 2 Republican Commissioners, and I’ve seen no cuts. How do you blame Democrats for that?

Dan Camp is no Republican. He’s about as Republican as AOC, his dimwit twin sister.

What have they CUT? Nothing. Dan Camp is a Democrat, through and through. Sandie has been neutralized.
