Village Idiot of the Day, April 29, 2011: Just S tom, ocean, dsteelman1

Who could complain about Arbor Day? Or connect trees to abortion? That's a rhetorical question. Our Reppies can!

Friday the Rep published a Letter to the Editor from Dick Drake, Certified Arborist, reminding us about the history of Arbor Day and the importance of trees to us and our environment. Now we're not acquainted with Mr. Dale, but anybody who plants trees is OK with us. On an Arbor day long past, we planted a tree in a Sealtest milk carton in our backyard. It now stands over 60 feet high. One of these days it will upturn the garage.

Be we digress...

No sooner did the letter appear when Beavis and, we mean Just S tom and ocean appeared on the scene, apparently toked up on skunkweed, to assure us that no good deed will go unpunished.

Let's Stop taking Arbor Day for Granted
Just S tom



Lawyers for trees anybody?????

Just S tom

dems are silly.....

JOBS.....TERRORISTS.....and LOWER GAS PRICES....then we will start to talk about TREES and GRASS and CLOUDS and GOLD FISH...

Then, a follow-up from Tom cracking on the unlucky soul the Rep reported on earlier this week whose house had burned down and the van he was living in while he was rebuilding was taken out by a tree.

Just S tom

tell that guy with a tree in his van to REPLANT A TREE...

dems are silly folk..

In honor of this article, I will say a prayer of thanks for the trees Im going to burn tomorrow at my bonfire :)

Then, ocean cleverly tying the dialogue together with subtext of the entire discussion: abortion.

Just S tom

OMG!!!!! I bout laughed my hind end off....the guy with the tree in his van!!!!!! I agree dems ARE silly!!!!! They're all for the dang trees but support abortions......screwy! Don't saw that tree down,but suck that unborn outta that woman....heck,they even want to PAY for it!

We feel a little silly about reporting this dialogue, but not as silly as Tom, ocean and dsteelman look to the rest of the world.

Like yesterday, there are more important things to report on, but is there anything more idiotic than Just S tom, ocean, and dsteelman1, Village Idiots of the Day, April 29, 2011?

(see sidebar to the right for past VID honors for all of today's recipients.

4/330/2011m 1:06 PM: We don't know who Mailman is in real live, but IHC thanks him for the plug today in the Rep under this thread. We appreciate the heads up!

Village idiot of the Day, April 28, 2011: Just S tom; ocean

In our darker moments we wonder if Reppies should be required to pass a literacy test before being allowed to post. Over the last few days, as the primary election grows near, I Hate Canton has seen what may be the dumbest posts ever to hit the commentsphere.

Here's a couple regulars railing idiotic against SARTA:

SARTA is Essential in Lives of Many Stark Countians
They're spinning this just like the schools do when they want the homeowners to pass a levy,the kids will suffer,now if this levy fails it throws more onto the gravy train,from what I've seen it wouldn't hurt a few people to toenail it a couple miles a day

Only to be topped by Just S tom's vision of the future: Obama tax eaters getting a free ride to Walmart...or, we suppose, to pick up rock on The Strip. Tom, btw, appears to be the Tom formerly known as tom n lou. (see right sidebar for links to earlier Tom posts, which also illustrate his inability to use the shift key).

Just S tom
WE ARE EQUAL.....NOBODY SHOULD DRIVE A CAR....we must obey Obama...

GET IN LINE...GET WHATS FAIR AND take from those who have more...BE FAIR.

dress cloths and ballcaps

Just S tom


And we found this 2-day old related diamond in the rough from Tom in another thread:

Just S tom
Have You Had Your Fill of $4.00 Gas?

While there may be more serious discussions to critique from Thursday (die, Obama birth certificate, die!), I Hate Canton, as a friend of Voltaire, feels it incumbent to record occasionally the ill-educated, ill-bred juvenile rants that appear on the pages of the Rep in the name of free speech and newspaper marketability. We feel sorry for the gang down on 500 S. Market. This is not what they went to J School for.

For April 28, 2011, we give 2nd place to ocean. May her car break down and she (ocean is a self-identified she) be forced to "toenail" it between Canton South and Perry Heights in 8 inches of snow next winter. High heels required.

Just S tom speaks for himself.

On a personal note, IHC believes that SARTA and its supporters are making a big mistake focusing on the "disadvantaged" element of its ridership--the poor, the old, and the student. In a normal town that would be quite acceptable, but Canton/Stark County isn't normal. Reppies have already made it clear that people without cars or car access are socialist tax eating lazy trash. We wonder if a big PR campaign focusing on the normalcy of public transportation (like the normalcy of tax supported police, fire, water, and street repair) might make SARTA more tolerable to the intolerable. Probably not, but it would be worth a try.

Villiage Idiot of the Day, April 27, 2011: sallysurvivor

The poor and what were once referred to quaintly as "the underprivileged," continued to take hits yesterday. You'd think these totally self-sufficient Reppies would be too busy building their own roads, driving distant relatives to the doctor and grocery, and stocking up on garden hoses to put out their house fires to bother throwing their 2 cents--or should we say $20,000-- worth in on SARTA, the unemployed, and the frail and elderly.

While our Reppies shake their little fists over lazy unemployed bus riders, Planned Parenthood and weep copious over abortion and innocent babies (who are quickly de-innocented, if they need a hand-up) their real desire is to get rid of The Unworthies: the sick, the mentally or physically disabled, the working poor and poor, food stampers, the unemployed, single mothers and their children with "funny" names, "criminals," liberals, blacks, Hispanics, and the otherwise socially unfit. That is, those who do not meet their rigid perceptions of middle class decorum, economics, and race or have proven too lazy to hold to what they had once they got it. Not surprisingly, our Reppies all hide behind nom de plumes. If their friends, neighbors, and co-workers knew what they thought about them, they'd be stoned at high noon on the downtown plaza.

Take sallysurvivor, for instance. Although as mean-spirited as Tuesday's VID recipient Sourdough Sal, (see below) I've seen nothing to suggest that they are the same person. Our two Sals should take action to distance themselves from each other.

Yesterday sallysurvivor wrote:

Disability Payments are Hardly Luxuries and Recipients Would Much Rather Work

People on disability, should they continue to reproduce? Then the children receive social security also.

Car accidents, say you went out, got loaded, got into an auto accident and are now disabled. Should you be able to receive back more than you paid in?

If that isn't eugenics, then what is?

We'll get serious here for a moment.

The War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race by Edwin Black is the most complete and detailed account of American eugenics published. Junk science eugenics, endorsed by early 20th century US politicians, policy makers, churches, and philanthropists, became the model for Nazi experimentation and extermination. In Chapter 4, Hunting the Unfit. (p. 58 hardback), Black writes of the work in 1915 of the American Breeders Association, an early and leading US eugenics organization:

Ten groups were eventually identified as "socially unfit" and targeted for "elimination." First, the feebleminded; second, the pauper class; third the inebriate class or alcoholics; fourth, criminals of all descriptions including petty criminals and those jailed for nonpayment of fines; fifth, epileptics; sixth, the insane; seventh, the constitutionally weak class; eight, those pre-disposed to specific diseases; ninth, the deformed; tenth, those with defective sense organs, that is the deaf, blind, and mute. In this last category there was no indication of how severe the defect need be to qualify; no distinction was made between blurry vision or bad hearing and outright blindness or deafness.

Not content to eliminate those deemed unfit by virtue of some malady, transgression, disadvantage, or adverse circumstance, the ABA committee targeted their extended families as well . Even if those relatives seemed perfectly normal and were not institutionalized, the breeders considered them equally unfit because they supposedly carried the defective germ-plasm that might crop up in a future generatio . The committee carefully weighted the relative value of "sterilizing all persons with defective germ-plasm," or just "sterilizing only degenerates." The group agreed that "defective and potential parents of defectives not in institutions" were also unacceptable.

Later down the page, Black quotes Harry Laughlin, director of the Eugenics Record Office:

There are many parents who, in many cases, may themselves be normal, but who produce defective offspring. This great mass of humanity is not only a social menace to the present generation, but it harbors the potential parenthood of the social misfits of our future generations.

We see a lot of that attitude amongst Reppies, implicit or explicit, though, not in such radical terms--yet. All in all, one gets the impression that Reppies would be only too happy to disappear the "socially unworthy" and "socially unfit" as long as they didn't have to watch them being disappeared. Sort of like executions or sanitized versions of war. We don't see too far of a jump from Slim Jim's comment on nursing home cuts, "The sole purpose of the left is to take as much money as it can from the evil and greedy to give to the victim" (apparently the old in this case) to thinking of the majority of the population as a "social menace."

In recognition of this proud spirit of eugenicide, we are happy to present sallysurvivor with the Village Idiot of the Day Award, April 27, 2012. Accompanying her award is a copy of The War on the Weak. Upon presentation to I Hate Canton of three medical reports from certified eugenic specialists we will also issue sallysurvivor a Eugenics Certificate which will enable her to marry the eugenic match of her choice as long as he or she carries a matching certificate.

Things We'd Like to Know More About

Disabiity Payments are hardly Luxuries, and Recipients Would Much Rather Work

Hey Frank, maybe all of the people on disability should just operate illegal gambling houses to support their children the way your father did!

Frank Manello''s father was a gambler?

Village Idiot of the Day: April 26, 2011: John Bixby, Frank Manello, agentorange, HowDoYouKnow

The War on the Poor continued yesterday. We were hoping to move on to say...bloodlust or Jesus... but Reppies just won't leave the poor (or anyone who uses public services) alone. Food stamps, welfare moms, unemployment, Social Security, SARTA were all stomped on.

Here's the pick of the litter:

Commenting on a Letter to the Editor, we have John Bixby, recommending soft eugenic measures to control the poor. (Paragraphed for easy reading, but spelling remains untouched).

I honestly believe that I have a system that would work alot better than what we have now. First of all regarding unemployment limit it to 3 months period that is more than long enough to find another job and get back on your feet. Now on to our corrupt welfare system first off make everyone currently on welfare refile.

Second make it so everyone filing for benefits must submit to a drug test. If the drug test comes up positive you have a choice to either go to rehab or find a way to support yourself cause we wont. If you go to rehab you will then be subject to random drug testing and if you come up positive again your off welfare period.

Second if you get pregnant with another child while on welfare again your off. You could not support the kids you already have why would you have another that you cant support.

Third everyone applying for benefits would also be subject to a criminal background check if you have commited a crime withen three months of filing or commit a crime at any time while on welfare your off. We will not support criminals period.

Forth people on welfare will have their cases reviewed every three months to make sure they are not abusing the system. And finally fifth any adult on welfare must volunteer at least 30 hours a week to help and give back to the community that supports them. Its only fair we help you you help us.

This will also help to generate jobs because we will need more caseworkers to handle the welfare cases and also save money because I am sure their will not be as many people on welfare.

And who can forget Frank "Scrooge" Manello's odd belief that the government bribes voters with food stamps and confession that he stalks food shoppers.

Frank Manello
Jerry, perhaps the 'anger and contempt' as you put it could be due to frustration at some people selling their votes in exchange for promises of more government handouts.

OBTW I have seen people buying steaks and lobsters using foodstamps. I have also seen foodstampers driving off in nice new expensive cars. Clean up the system and there will be more to go around for people who are truly in need of a hand.

How about agentorange's idea to send the unemployed to migrant camps in Hartville?

.... If the cabins in Hartville are good enough for the migrants, they are good enough for welfare recipients. Some folks can watch the children of the others as they work to support themselves. If the Girl Scouts can have a special mission for the migrants, they can certainly entertain the children of welfare recipients. Enough with the free ride. Either work or starve. Unless one is sick or disabled, there is simply NO EXCUSE. Anyone can pluck a chicken and anyone can pick a strawberry. I've done both.

Finally, we have the latest complaint about freeloading SARTA-riding poverty whores

No need to tax everyone for a service that only some people use. Raise the rates for those who use the service and let those who want to help to pay for those who use SARTA make generous 'tax free' donations to SARTA to subsidize the rates if they so choose. I'm sure that some wealthy liberals in the public sector would look at this as a win / win ....... a tax writeoff and warm and fuzzy.

Our awards from bottom to top:

Honorable Mention and a rubber chicken goes to agentorange. We wonder just how many welfare rollers Hartville's black muck can suck down.

Third Place is awarded to Frank Manello, an inspiration to Nosy Parkers everywhere. Thanks to Frank's heads-up we'll be watching our fellow shoppers and reporting lobster-eating welfare cheats to somebody. Cadillac confiscation optional. (see right sidebar for other Manello citations.)

It's hard to see How Do You Know collect our second place VID since all-in-all HDYK is OK by our book. We are concerned however, by his/her dangerous undemocratic tendencies. The SARTA tax renewal is not a property tax levy (if it were, we'd be more sympathetic), but a tax on consumable items that everybody pays when they buy something the government has declared taxable. So when Tim Timken and HDYK both run in to Speedee Foods for a can of Pringle's and a 6-pack of Bud Light, they're paying the same 0.25 percent sales tax. Two cents won't break either Tim or HDYK, but the loss may seriously harm Mr. Manello's solvency.

Finally, our First Place winner: John Bixby. We were going to explain here how Bixby's recommendations would boost the taxpayer dun (that is, budget) by billions, but theame19 took the time to show us. The only thing he forgot was that most of these state bureaucrats Bixby believes will swell the ranks of the newly employed would also be unionized sucking down his paycheck. oh oh.


We give our special I Hate Canton Cash Cow Savings Award to theame19 for illustrating how Mr. Bixby would bust the taxpayer.

It is obvious to me that from reading over some of these postings that some of you just hate the State of Ohio.

John Bixby comes to mind: Mr. Bixby wants to drug test everyone before they file for welfare benefits. He believes this will cut costs and help fix a broken system.

He is so wrong it is laughable!

Roughly five years ago, the last time I looked to be exact, there were approx. 35 million people across the country using some form of Public Assistance. Some received cash assistance, some food stamps and some medical benefits or a combo of the three. It would be impossible to determine the actual cost of these benefits because people's status change monthly but the number of those receiving benefits remains a constant. Needless to say, however, the amount of the costs of monthly benefits is substantial. All of which is funded by taxpayer dollars so keep this in mind.

Now you want to add drug testing into the mix. It is estimated by the Dept. of Health and Human Services that the approx. cost to drug test one person is roughly $400 dollars. This is a low end estimate meaning it would cost approx. $14 billions dollars a month to drug test each person each month at an annual cost of $168 billion dollars a year.

This is just to administer the tests, process the results and then deal with the following consequences. So now those of you that want to cleanse the system have to shell out an additional $168 billion dollars a year to drug test.

This is such a great idea I feel the urge to go to the bank, withdrawl all my cash, burn it, then dance while the ashes float into the sky.

Village Idiot of the Day, April 25, 2012: Sourdough Sal

I Hate Canton has returned, and we don't want to hem and haw around with our Village Idiot Award. While many are called, only one will be honored as we open this new day of Canton Critique: Sourdough Sal.

Sal has been one of our faves for a long time. A mixture of right wingnuttery, fundamentalist Christianity, cheapskatedness, and dumped wife martyrdom, no one can beat Sal for sheer class hatred. She never misses an opportunity to tell us how hard she works to support "her child" while accusing the rests of us of chronic laziness and....socialism. She may consider herself the local incarnation of Ayn Rand, but we can assure her that Rand would have dismissed her quickly with a well-placed "what are your premises?"

Sal has been previously been awarded VID honors :

June 22, 2009: Conservatives and republicans are overall Christian and closely aligned with the Jewish people and Israel. We do not hate them, we align with them. Liberal or Progressives align with the terrorists trying to end Israel and the Jewish people.

August 10, 2009: Nazi's or national socialist party wanted a national government run health care. Which side is that? Brown shirts were Hitler's minions who roughed up the citizens who tried to speak out against what the government was doing. ACORN, SEIU, AFLCIO anyone?

August 23, 2009: Most of the people that I see on government assistance has the most high tech cell phones and they are either talking constantly or texting.

Sal was also quoted in a July 10, 2009 comment questioning the sexuality of a regular liberal contributor and then suggesting that liberals go to Cuba or Venezuela. Personally we think Sal would be quite at home in Pyongyang.

Sourdough Sal is being honored today for her comments under two Letters to the Editor. Note that the second letter was written by regular commenter Tina Pyle (tpyle1) who for her effort was ruthless dumped on by Sal and other commenters for...going to college.

Sourdough Sal
Typical liberal drivel-if you object to being robbed to pay for the lazy or cadillac benefits for the demonrat union thugs-you are labeled as racist, or snobbish or whatever. Well, thank God we still somewhat have freedom of speech-so I am going to speak...... This comment does not pertain to the RIGHTFULLY disabled or elderly. If I cannot claim you on my taxes-I don't owe you sh*t! Get a job and support yourself and your family!

tpyle1-I will echo others-what exactly do you expect to do with a Criminal justice/comm degree? I agree if you REALLY want to work - RN, accounting, dental assistant is the way to go. At least with RN or accounting you are assured a decent paying job pretty much on the day you graduate. Sure the job may be distasteful to some, but what is more important? Doing what you want or a good paying job?

Even I Hate Canton was rather aghast that Mrs. Sourdough beefed about Pyle's choice of major: criminal justice. As someone noted, it's not Art History! Moreover, Sal's comment suggests that she finds her own work as a nurse "distasteful" We are sure her patients feel the same.

I Hate Canton believes that if we had not been off doing serial mai-tais for the last 15 months Sourdough Sal would have received many more citations. We are sure, however, that she can make up her loss in no time.

But for now, April 25, 2011, however, Happy Village Idiocy, Sal!

I Hate Canton is Back!

We didn't mean to be gone so long.

What started out as a brief winter hiatus turned into a 15 month fling when I Hate Canton was spirited away by a person of the French Persuasion, into a life of dissipation and unrivaled pleasure. During our travels to the Costa Almeria, Split, and Kuala Lumpur, however, IHC read the Repository online regularly--and shared the wit and wisdom of the local non de plumers with Frenchy. Intitally entertained by their provincial writings, Frenchy eventually became depressed by their dimwittery. When Frenchy wrote an essay entitled "The Moral Bankrupcy of the American Bourgeoisie: Being and Nothingness in Canton, Ohio as Exhibited by Anonymous Commenters to the Canton Repository" and sent it off to Etudes Phenomenologiuques we knew it was time to return to Canton and confront the nothingness and being (if there is any).

I Hate Canton, of course, was pleased to see the disappearance of Octapuppet's legendary entities. We are convinced, though, that he/she/it is still writing under a couple assumed names, but we won't name them here, since we don't want to encourage he/she/it to jump out of the closet. Not surprisingly, a slew of posters, some the usual gang, others new (or at least with new names) have filled Octa's vacuum to do battle against welfare queens (such as the one to the right found on Canton City Square recently, lying food stamp collectors, lazy SARTA riders, old and cranky Medicaid patients, and thugish teachers unions. They love John Kasich to a fault and believe that we all--even those who work--should get a job.

Although only back in town a couple days, our first IHC Village Idiot of the Day for the new season will appear here tomorrow around noon. Idiots are not hard to find. Comments welcomed

IHC is back and we're watching you.
