Crap, The Downfall of Western Civilization is All My Fault

By Lloyd the Idiot

Apparently, I need to check my spam folder more often.

Sandwiched between a notice of my winning £7.500.000 and a promotion for free organic Viagra was an equally important message from Supervisor Eugene Delgaudio advertising a fundraiser last Friday.  In it, he sternly warned, “Tyranny and Socialism will win if you don’t come Friday night.”  The message went on with dire predictions of rationed electricity and even rationed butter.   And you know if Eugene said it, it must be true.

I am so sorry, everyone, but I didn’t get the message until today so I wasn’t able to attend.    Oh, the guilt of now having the sole blame for destroying America. It’s almost too much to live with!  In fact, I’m so sorry you can have my butter ration to make up for it.

The full buffoonery is below the fold

Dear Sterling American,

Tyranny and Socialism will win if you do not come Friday night. Thank you to those of you who have responded, Friday’s event will be a fantastic success only if you come.

Thank you to those of you who have donated before or as part of this event.

(The event is Friday, October 7, 6 p.m., Santini’s Restaurant, Under the Clocktower, opposite Burlington Coat Factory in Sterling, right off Route 7)

It is not enough. I am worried.

I hope Congressman Frank Wolf, Former Governor George Allen and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli will not be embarrassed by low turnout and better financial support

I am sorry but due to Congressman Wolf there is a limit of $2500 and no corporate donations. I believe that is not a hardship for most of you. For those of you who can, please tell me you are coming.

Or send the $25 ASAP. Or accept the top limit and send $2500. It all adds up.

Mail it to Friends of Delgaudio, P. O. Box 1222 Sterling Va. 20167. Thank you.

Let’s not disappoint Frank Wolf, George Allen and Ken Cuccinelli. Are they backing a winner? Only you can make that happen.

Again, thank you to those who have responded. We have a good gathering as it is. Let’s make it a larger group by the rest of you deciding to come.

I know you are busy. I know it has turned cold and rainy. But think about how bad things will get if Tyranny and Socialism, respectively, take over this Board of Supervisors.

Think about rationed fuel or electricity. Think about rationed butter due to the “fat content”. Think about limiting the area you can plant trees or bushes–planned to be prohibited by the current board. Think about the bankrupt philosophy that drives the tax rate, that you don’t need all that money.

I will not list the incidents around the country where violent protests led by unions in state after state have shocked Wisconsin, Minnesota, and now Washington State.

Instead allow me to note: since I last wrote you– over the weekend– Seven hundred protesters on Wall STreet have been arrested trying to close down America’s free market, “stop the rich bankers”, as they demand Barrack Obama’s re-election.

Thousands of Socialist-wanta-bees demand an end to free enterprise on the streets of Manhattan.

And an aging American comedian, Roseann Barr, running for U.S. President demands on TV “Behead Bankers, Rich who won’t give up wealth.”

(Wolf has confirmed, Allen visited previously, Cuccinelli sends regrets).

  • Linda B says:

    Oh, I don’t know. Chicago, and particularly Chicago politics, just has a certain je nais se quoi.

  • “All Republicans or conservatives are such a shapeless amoral hydra” blah blah blah.

    Barbara, remember that other commenters here are not always addressing you. There are a variety of others participating whose words may end up being quoted.

    I realize that you may have thought you recognized your own practice of putting your preferred words in quotes and attributing them to someone else, but that was not the case. I was quoting the language used by another commenter.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    David, may I humbly submit that “blah blah blah” is not peaceful dialogue seeking learning and growth among differing equals?

    I realize that you and Liz are both multidimensional people, and consequently did not reply “blah blah blah” to the pro-union talking points.

    It would appear that getting union pols in is quite important. It would also appear that even though elections may go as you wish in your own district, your wishes may not garner a voting majority on the BoS.

    Oh well.

  • liz says:

    Linda B., ah, I get it now. You think of Chicago the way I used to think of Virginia before I moved here from New York.

  • liz says:

    Barbara, while I am pro-Union and from a long line of Weavers fans, I’m not using Union talking points on the PLAs.

    I’m using Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce talking points.

    Whose talking points are YOU using?

  • Barbara, you must have misunderstood. I wasn’t characterizing as “blah blah blah” your anti-union talking points, but rather your attempt to put your own words in my mouth. Hope this clears it up.

  • Linda B says:

    … and then you moved to Virginia and realized it was much, much worse than you’d imagined.

  • Linda B says:

    Just checked out that post. I hate to take this thread even further off topic, but Stevens’ insistence that because something (allegedly) saves taxpayer money, conservatives should automatically want it to be mandatory is ridiculous. To take an extreme example, putting accused criminals to death by firesquad without a trial rather than imprisoning them following a fair trial would save tons of taxpayer money; that doesn’t mean it should be practiced, much less mandatory.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    I enjoy the Weavers music too.

    I don’t think I’d ever vote for any of them for office though.

    Your husband’s interpretation of the chamber of commerce position makes the same elide you do: that the saving of money came from the establishment of union rules, and not from the voluntary nature of their inclusion. Making it mandatory (as in your cited blogpost–“why would they want it to be VOLUNTARY if it saved money?”–because the voluntary nature did the saving by allowing all contractors to compete, and not locking it in to union shop rules) eliminates a certain amount of competition. And yes, to ignore that is significant.
    David, I’m so used to “blah blah blah” from some quarters, it was quite surprising to see such a formula dismissal from you.

    I doubt everything will ever be all cleared up–issues couldn’t keep going around in circles if so!

  • Wolverine says:

    The campaign manager for Al Nevarez is Michael McCall. He currently hails from Pompano Beach , Florida. 2004 grad of Ohio State Univ. with a degree in economics. Calls himself an economist/leviathan hunter/political operative. Started by serving as a canvass director for a Congressional candidate. Says he was a “lead organizer” for the John Edwards campaign. Also did some political work in Iowa. Later helped manage campaigns for state senate and state assembly in Florida.

    Found no direct connections for Al in Chicago. Took a brief look because there is a guy in Chicago who happens to have the same name, but nothing in the profile fit our Al. Conceivable that Al could have some Chicago connection (as Linda B pointed out in a NVTH post) but it is probably only through contacts via the New Organizing Institute or the AFL-CIO. Can’t see where Al is “Chicago.” That feller is California all the way, with a brief stop in Baltimore.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Wolverine, did you mention Roswell in the other thread?

  • Linda B says:

    Thanks for the info, Wolverine. So the fellow I met is not his campaign manager. I guess he is just a very enthusiastic supporter who’s come here all the way from Chi-town to help out with the campaign. I have seen him around a couple of times in the past few weeks. Quite a force of personality that Al must be to engender such fandom.

  • “ was quite surprising to see such a formula dismissal from you.”

    It should be self-evident, but let the record show that I will dismiss the deliberate attribution to me of someone else’s preferred ideas and words, and not expend a great deal of creative energy doing it.

  • Wolverine, are you also going to investigate the third party candidate’s connections? That would make quite a story, I bet.

  • Barbara Munsey says:

    David, you actually did use “goon”, and applied it by proxy to a much wider segment that G Stone’s specific about the people pretty mcuh following Wolf into the men’s room to yell at him, and BlackOut’s was a simple repetition.

    I appreciate that what you are doing here and elsewhere requires a great deal of “creative” energy, and I thank you for admitting it, if inadvertently.

  • John says:

    “(Wolf has confirmed, Allen visited previously, Cuccinelli sends regrets).”

    I thought this was the best part… Apparently Wolf is the only guest who is actually showing up.

    It’s not that I dislike Eugene, but I wish we had a conservative candidate who didn’t insist on always coming across like an overly melodramitic nutjob. It’s an embarassment for Sterling.

  • edmundburkenator says:

    Jesus Barbara… G used goon. You said no one had.

    Read more carefully.

    You are free to use Jesus now, too.
