A Tannerite Ban in Upper Mount Bethel?

Mr. Counterman with another friend, Mr. Bob Cartwright
I've told you recently about the uproar in Upper Mount Bethel Township over exploding targets. A Pa. State trooper decided to blow up, not one, not two, but 30 pounds of tannerite at his Upper Mount Bethel Tp property. If you or I did something like that, we'd be sentenced to the electric chair for 20 years. But the grey gods are above the law. Some people were furious about a series of three explosions on March 18, and packed into a Supervisors' meeting. Though town fathers knew exactly what had happened, they claimed the matter was "under investigation." They also discussed the possibility of banning the use of binary explosives (the kind you have to mix together) in the Township. But resident Rufus T. Counterman, a slate belt resident whose family has lived there for generations, is adamantly exposed to any restriction on his personal freedom.

"It's Mister Rufus T. Counterman to you," he told me when he and his buddy, Leroy Sigafoos, recently met me at Mount Bethel Diner. "We are learned gentlemen, you know. Double wides."

Counterman was referring to the double wide trucks he drives for a living.

He told me he is unalterably opposed to any kind of regulation of tannerite. "It gives us something to do, and keeps us away from our cousins and farm animals."

I wouldn't accept an invitation for a sit down interview if I were you because somehow, I can see them doing things to you and you sounding like one of their pigs squealing away the night and into the early morning. You wouldn't be able to sit again for a month.

Ole Bernie, in the mob they say when they come for you it won't be someone you don't know looking bad. It will be someone you know. A friendly familiar face, smiling and then it happens.

I can see it now you drive up to the hill country. There by a diner is good ole Ron Angle. He is smiling with a big ole stinky cigar in his trap. You smile and move closer. The next thing you know you are in a grey god dungeon with a pound of thermite up your bunghole.

Yahzaaaa!!!

So your answer to not being taken seriously is to label the people of Upper Mt Bethel as having sex with farm animals and cousins. Usual far left response when ignored.

4:33, That has already happened several times.

9:42, This story was obtained based on jokes from people who live there and who, unlike you, have a sense of humor.

You know you really do think of those people in that way.

Bernie O'Hare said...

I know what I think better than you do, and actually have a higher opinion of people who live in the slate belt than anywhere else in the LV.

Omg locally a Tatwr Slater is a result of sex with your sister in Bangor. In North Bangor you will find usually the home is mobile but the five cars in the frowes up yard are not.The school board is known for electing the fire house drunk and it's making kids support an over priced and under weughes box of candy scam that benefits a board member. Between the incesterous we mingling if the locals it's a wonder the GED is not considered a doctorate.

The cop that blasted that crap should be prosecuted but he won't . Different laws for different people. Stop defending stupid.

Omg 'Tater Slater' had a meaning and here I thought they were just tater tots. Stupid me being a transplant.

"The Firehouse Drunk" and " The Candy Man" candy scam on the kids. This is sick that this trash gets elected.

Bernardo, 30 LBS of tannerite would be loud but certainly not enough to create such a kerfuffle among the Libtards and gun grabbers hiding in our midst. For context here is a video where 30 lBS of tannerite is placed in a 78' Ford Bronco and detonated with a 300 yard rifle round. A well armed militia needs to train in diverse fashion explosives will always be vital to defend outposts of liberty from the tyrannical left.

TNT=1
tannerite=.55

so 16.5 lbs of TNT is quiet?

the problem with idiots and large amount of tannerite isn't that they earn a Darwin award,it is that other people can be hurt.

"The fridge blows on the first shot. Its lower door comes straight at him over the grass at great speed. It looks like some terrible ghost being summoned."

and that was three pounds of tannerite.

Hey O'Hare. The county is taking some of Angle's land according to their agenda.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Considering that the Council agenda is not even out, and that nothing of that sort appears on the finance committee agenda, how would you know this? Trying to cause trouble with no facts again?
