Silberline County

Of course her main feller is her husband, Lehigh County GOP boss Wayne Woodman. If I were her, I'd be trying to trade up, but love is blind. "I love the way you say 'free market politics,'" she whispers in his ear.

But Lisa has some other fellers, too. One of them is Exec candidate Scott Ott. In addition to being the Chairman at aluminum industry pioneer Silberline, Lisa has been an outspoken voice on Lehigh County's Board of Commissioners. She's part of what she and Ott would call a "reform" movement. I think a more appropriate word is "deform." One brick at a time, this group is intent on ripping government apart, because it's evil.

Let me give you an example of this "deform" movement from Monday night's economic development forum for Executive candidates. Scott Ott, a fellow "deform" movement member, was a participant. At the end of a question about what he'd do to promote the economy and jobs, he said he's all for outsourcing government jobs, even to the point of opening up individual jobs to "managed competition."

Of course, something like that is simply unworkable, not only in government, but in business, too. But he said it with a smile, but nobody minded.

You can't open jobs like corrections officers or nursing home nurses to competitive bidding. You don't run a business that way, either.

But Lisa has giver her feller, Scott Ott, $20,000 for his Exec race, nearly 1/3 of the total amount he's raised.

She has other fellers, too.

Mike Schware is another deform movement member, an appointed Commissioner. Lisa has given him $5,000 of the $8,950 he raised, over half of his support. She's also given another feller, Commissioner candidate Scott Aquila, $2,500 of the $5,985 he's raised, nearly half of his warchest.

Scheller has so far spent $27,500 to deform Lehigh County.

Once they're done, they're secret plan is to build everything out of aluminum. Silberline County.

Like the Democrats are NOT all whores, too ...

Are your loyal readers REALLY this stupid or what?

I'm not aware of any Democrats in either county who have spent the amount that Lisa has on her deform team.

These are not Republicans. They want to destroy government, brick by brick. Ott has said as much.

But with a smile.

Too bad you don't have the guts to comment at length on the IRS or Benghazi ...

We are in the midst of an important municipal election. In one county, we have a woman who makes death wishes seeking a seat on County Council. In another, we have a group - the deform team - that wants to destroy local government. This is pretty serious stuff, and this is has much more impact on us than your blatherings about the IRS. Start your own blog and blather away. I'll do it when I feel like it, and right now, I feel that local races are a lot more important.

I propose a contest between Lisa S and Mike Fleck. Maybe mud wrestling?

Too many people wanting to impose something on the public rather than serving them.

With the unsavory Wash DC stuff going on and the petty local politics, no wonder the voters are apethetic.

Speaking of Green to go around.... Silberline accepted $340k stimulus grant in lieu of tax credits for 871 solar panels installed on two buildings near Tamaqua. Wonder how this would have played out if Lehigh County was the grant administrator?

Libertarian nutjobs. I am convinced that Ayn Rand was a soviet spy sent to America to but forward dangerous ideas that would bring down capitalism. The best way to destroy capitalism isn't through socialist revolution, it is for the elites to really believe they are self supporting John Galts that don't rely on the rest of society.

Also the Ott model has been tried. It is why you get India when you call Dell and your clothes were made by slaves in Bangladesh and the unemployment rate and economy sucks. It is great for a very small group of people at the top and crap for the rest of society.
