Liberal NutJob Ron Pagano To Run For Wicomico County Council

There is a rumor on some blogs and liberal whacko Ron Pagano has filed to run against Joe Holloway for Wicomico County Council.

God help us all!!If this is true, what say you?

Updated:

Dear Friends and Family:
After much deliberation, discussing it with my wife, Nancy, and meeting with many folks in the area, I have decided to join the race for the Wicomico County Council’s 5th District. It is a large district, mostly rural, but also covering towns and villages, from Delmar to Willards, and out to the Eastern edge of the County.
What I hope to bring to the race is my passion to fight for the issues I take on, whether for the unemployed, veterans, former inmates who want to turn their lives around, the disabled, or the host of other issues I have worked on in my life.
As many of you know, I have faced many obstacles in my 60 years, but I have always been an optimist, knowing that I have the ability to overcome anything I put my heart and mind to. My handicap has not kept me from pursuing my dreams, including my education, my family, my businesses or my beliefs. In fact, it is my handicap, along with all of the accompanying problems associated with it, that has pushed me to become the person and advocate I’ve become. I see problems and I want to help solve them, just as I’ve solved my own! If there is one thing I can impart from my own experiences, it is, “Never give up!”
My district is mostly rural, including many farms and rural communities. I may only have ‘farmed’ my backyard vegetable garden, but I have lived in rural, farmland communities for most of my adult life and when I met my wife, (who was born and raised in Parsonsburg), instead of discussing whether she might move to Anne Arundel County (where I was living at the time), I chose to move here, to Wicomico County, because I had come to love rural life, the slower pace and the people who live in places like this.
I promise the voters of the 5th District that I will fight for their concerns, just as I’ve always fought in the past. I look forward to opening a dialogue and finding new solutions to old problems. The way to the future is not through arguing, obstructing or refusing to see both sides; it is through finding ways to meet, talk, understand and compromise. All I ask from the voters is to hear what I have to say, and then watch, as I follow through. THAT’S the real test of any elected official!
The slogan for my campaign is, “Honor the past, plan for the future!” I hope that everyone will join me in this new challenge I’ve taken on. I’m eager to get started and find out how I can make life better for our community! I will be posting additional details about the campaign over the next few weeks.
With Warmest Regards,
Ron

Again, God help us all from this idiots.

Rapper Jay Z and his wife, R&B singer Beyonce Along With Salisbury’s Own Ron Pagano Join The “Lynch Zimmerman” Rallies. Will They Push For Race Riots Next?

Rapper Jay Z and his wife, R&B singer Beyonce, joined the Rev. Al Sharpton and Trayvon Martin’s mother at a Saturday rally for Martin in Harlem, N.Y.—one of at least 100 protest gatherings scheduled to take place across America.

Sharpton’s National Action Network organized the “Justice for Trayvon” rallies and vigils outside federal buildings from New York and Los Angeles to Wichita, Kan., and Atlanta, where people stood in the rain at the base of the federal courthouse, with traffic blocked on surrounding downtown streets. Most rallies were scheduled for noon local times.

Jay Z with Justin Timberlake dedicated the song “Forever Young” to Martin during their closing number at Yankee Stadium Friday night: “Everybody put a cell phone and light it up,” Jay Z said according to TMZ, “let’s light the sky for Trayvon Martin tonight in here.”

Beyonce dedicated her rendition of “I Will Always Love You” to Martin during a concert a week ago today, just after George Zimmerman was acquitted of murdering the unarmed teenager in Sanford, Fla., last year.

In addition to pushing the Justice Department to investigate civil rights charges against Zimmerman, Sharpton told supporters outside his headquarters on W. 145th Street that he wants to see a rollback of stand-your-ground self-defense laws.

I am privileged and honored to be speaking at the Vigil for Trayvon Martin, part of the 100 City Vigil, organized by the Nat’l Action Network (NAN) and headed by the Rev. Al Sharpton. The Vigil will take place on Saturday, July 20, 12 NOON. The location is at the Billy Gene Jackson Sr. Park, 420 N. Lake Park Drive, Salisbury.

As most of us, I was shocked and bewildered by the prosecution’s failure to obtain a guilty verdict against Zimmerman. It seemed clearcut to me, as a former practicing attorney who had handled many criminal trials, that the issue upon which the entire case turned, was Zimmerman’s failure to follow the directions of a police officer. When he called 911 to report “suspicious activity” by a African-American youth, he was directed to stay in his car and not approach the individual. The resulting injuries he suffered and the death of Trayvon Martin, can be directly linked to his refusal to follow those directions. He put his life, and the life of Trayvon Martin, in jeopardy, by failing to stay in his car and instead, following, approaching and confronting a young man who had committed no crime, and for which he had no authority to act. The only reason Zimmerman felt safe enough to challenge the young man is because he knew that if things got out of hand, he had a “great equalizer” that he could use to end any violence. Such is not the actions of a brave and moral man, but, instead, they are the actions of a bully vigilante, intent on creating a situation where he could retaliate, free from repercussions, against those “punks.”

Ron Pagano: Salisbury’s Loony Occupy Leader Who Spouts Lies

A Letter to the editor:

Everyone leaves a legacy. When you die, you’re remembered, perhaps, for how you tried to make a better world for your children and grandchildren. Rep. Andy Harris’ legacy will be one of “lies, misleading distortions and half-truths” resulting in a less-safe, less-healthy world for women, children and the chronically ill.

The Republican playbook in 2012 includes taking credit for other people’s work. Romney tried to take “a lot of credit” for the auto industry recovery. Bogus is the nicest word I can muster on that claim.

Not to be outdone, Harris issued a news release last week claiming credit for keeping the U.S. Postal Service from closing facilities or offices. Can anyone tell me what Harris did? Anyone familiar with this issue — including hundreds of postal workers on the Eastern Shore — know it was Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin who led that fight. Mikulski even sent letters to Harris seeking his support to save these jobs — without even a response. Chalk one up for lies.

Polls show how most women feel about the lack of Republican support on issues ranging from health insurance to equal pay for equal work. Harris and his extremist cohorts have failed to support women’s issues. Of course, it should be different when it comes to violence against women, right?

Wrong. Last month, Harris and other right-wing radicals refused to extend the Violence Against Women Act, which has reduced domestic violence by 58 percent since 1994. Last week, in an attempt to fool women everywhere, Harris voted for a gutted version. The purpose was to muddy the waters and by confusing people, to appear to care about women.

What is it about the treatment of women in the 1800s that is so appealing to Harris? Here’s one for the misleading distortions column.

Now, for half-truths.

Truth: Harris talks big on making America energy independent. So why do we sell America’s oil and natural gas abroad? Why hasn’t Harris supported research into alternative energy sources that could reduce traditional energy costs? Why is he so intent on supporting fracking? The answers: Harris’ contributors want bigger profits. Fracking is being suspended by other countries and across the United States, because of health and pollution dangers.

Will it create jobs here on the Eastern Shore? No. But Harris gets lots of money from the Koch brothers and other out-of-state supporters in the oil industry. Harris has even voted to take away all powers of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to control greenhouse gas emissions, which affect our health and the environment.

These are just a few issues that affect Harris’ legacy. Ask yourself: Is this a legacy I would be proud to leave my children and grandchildren? I sure wouldn’t.

The lies just keep coming from the left. Are they capable of telling the truth or being moral at all? I do not think so.

Occupy Wall Street: We Will Become More Violent

A letter to the editor of USA Today is drawing considerable attention after it calls on protesters to consider using their “Second Amendment-sanctioned guns“ to ”storm Wall Street and our nation’s capitals.”

The author, Rich Latta from Austin, TX, is upset over a USA Today editorial that characterizes the Occupy movement as “fading into a whimper.”

“But with the recent clearing of encampments in Washington, D.C.— one of the last cities in which they still existed — a movement that came in with a bang appears to be going out with a whimper,” that original editorial reads. “Future political operatives might view it as a case study in how not to organize a lasting movement.”

It continues: “They did nothing day after day, week after week, under the mistaken belief that camping in public plazas would prompt some kind of action from others. … The Occupiers lacked identifiable leaders and clear goals. And they presented bewildering messages to the public, epitomized in the irony of people sitting idle to protest those who had made fortunes.”

For Latta, though, that just wouldn’t do.

“Anyone who claims the ‘Occupy’ movement has no clear message is either trying to discredit it or simply isn’t paying attention,” he writes in his response, the passion nearly visible in his keystrokes. “This protest always has been about economic injustice and the fact that a small handful of people have corrupted our system in their favor.”

He then boils over:

USA TODAY’s editorial is right to say that Occupy might lack clear goals on how to move forward, but the movement has accomplished its main original goal: to protest these injustices, not by simply holding a rally and going home, but by keeping the rally going to underscore the seriousness of this problem. Your piece accuses the protesters of sitting around and doing nothing. So maybe they should take up their Second Amendment-sanctioned guns and storm Wall Street and our nation’s capitals. If our country doesn’t change, it could very well come to that one day.

Occupiers Are Now Stealing People’s Homes

Single dad trying to take back home from Occupy Wall Street protesters

They’re occupying his home.

Occupy Wall Street protesters announced with great fanfare last month that they moved a homeless family into a “foreclosed” Brooklyn, N.Y., home — even though they knew the house belonged to a struggling single father desperately trying to renegotiate his mortgage, The Post has learned.

“They’re trying to take a house and say the bank is robbing the people because the mortgage is too high — so contact the owner!” fumed Wise Ahadzi, 28, who owns the home at 702 Vermont St. in East New York.

Occupiers “reclaimed” the row house on Dec. 6 and ceremoniously put out the welcome mat for a homeless family.

But Bank of America, which has been in and out of foreclosure proceedings against Ahadzi since 2009, confirmed to The Post that he is still the rightful owner.

Meanwhile, the family that OWS claimed to be putting into the vacant house has not yet permanently moved in. And it turns out the family is not a random victim of the foreclosure crisis, but cast for the part, thanks to their connection to the OWS movement.

OWS last week said it has spent $9,500 breaking into the house and setting it up for the homeless Carrasquillo family. A photo of the smiling family covers a window, under the slogan, “A place to call home.”

The head of the family, Alfredo Carrasquillo, 28, is an organizer for VOCAL- NY, a group that works with OWS. His Facebook page shows him in a “99 Percent” T-shirt at an OWS protest in November.

The Post visited the Vermont Street home last week — six weeks after OWS announced that the Carrasquillos were moving in — and the family was nowhere to be found.

In fact, the only people occupying the house were occupiers themselves.

“They only stay here sometimes,” a protester named Charlie said of the Carrasquillos. “There’s not enough room for the kids.”

The occupier refused to say how many others were inside, but at least two more protesters could be seen at the house, along with mattresses on the floor, during The Post visit.

Occupiers Discriminated Against Because They Are Idiots

A group of Occupy protesters on its way from San Diego to Washington, D.C. is furious after it claims it was kicked off a Greyhound bus in Amarillo, TX.

“I was discriminated against because I was with Occupy San Diego,” protester Vivian McCardle told KFDA-TV. “It’s appalling that people would treat others like that. When I walked up to that door he said you’re one of them. You people. You’re one of them going to Washington. Umm… One of them?”

The group detailed the incident on the site Obrag.com. According to that account, the bus driver became agitated with the group during a rest stop and repeatedly told members to “Shut up and sit down.” When they continued to respond to the driver, he eventually exited the bus and made a phone call. That’s when several police officers showed up and the driver pointed out the occupiers and had them removed:

After a brief conversation with the driver the officers walked onto the bus and asked him to point out who he wanted removed. The driver began to walk around and ask different passengers whether they were with Occupy. The police stopped the driver and told him that instead of asking people if they are with Occupy, he should instead point out who specifically he wanted off the bus. The driver replied, “all fourteen of them, I want them all of the bus.”

The driver failed to realize that there were only thirteen people with the Occupy group on the bus and that he was mixing in to the group another passenger that voiced her concerns about the unfair treatment she witnessed.

Progressive Blogger and Occupy Salisbury Leader Ron Pagano Spews Propaganda

Letter to the editor in the Daily Times:

I’m tired of those who belittle the unemployed and those who need help from entitlement programs. These stalwarts of American individualism claim there are enough jobs for everyone who really wants to work — which means not blacks, immigrants, Hispanics or too lazy to get up off of their butts.

What is it about compassion, understanding and reality these “stalwarts” fail to grasp?

In the same breath, they praise those “rugged individuals” who “pull themselves up by their bootstraps” — those who start with nothing and scratch out a niche in their marketplace, working 18-hour days, six- or seven-day weeks, entrepreneurs of the late ’80s and ’90s, who started the “tech bubble.” Remember that one? These job creators are the backbone of America, and without them we’d have fallen into the great abyss.

Blah, blah, blah.

Call me crazy, but aren’t we deep in the abyss? Millions have lost their jobs, homes, cars, savings and investments. Those “job creators,” dot-com bubble-makers, Wall Street high-yield investment gurus, Bernie Madoff knock-offs,bankers who created the mortgage bubble and made billions when it burst and corporate executivess who sent millions of jobs overseas have sucked the life out of every working family. They point fingers at the unemployed, elderly, disabled, hungry children or mentally ill and say,”It’s their fault. Big government.Entitlement fever caused this.”

Fact: Big government didn’t cause the meltdown. It was greedy, sleight-of-hand financial games; devious, unconscionable rape of workers’ savings and investments — including homes that were manipulated into low or no-interest mortgages; creation of collatoralized debt obligations questionably rated by credit agencies; and Wall Street banks that put billions into mortgage debentures, but then ‘shorted’ them, betting that they would continue to collapse, and in the process, make them billions more without regard for the victim — the middle class.

I’m tired of hacks like Rep. Andy Harris blaming high taxes imposed on the wealthy and corporations — his supporters, the so-called “job creators” — for this economic mess.” Based on mean personal tax rates, there are only seven countries with lower rates than the United States (28 percent): Mexico (18 percent), Korea (16 percent), Australia (27 percent), Iceland (27 percent), Ireland (25 percent), New Zealand (21 percent) and Japan (27 percent). (Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development, 2007) The rest run up to 55 percent.

In 2008, the GAO reported that 55 percent of US businesses paid no federal income taxes during at least one year in the last seven it studied.

Based on these findings — and the widening gap between wealthy and middle-class incomes — is there anyone who really thinks the rich or businesses are worse off now than they were 30 years ago?

I am tired of leftists spewing forth lies. I am tired of being blamed for their failures and the misery they create. The type of thinking above is one big reason America is in the trouble it is now.
