Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)


Over my last 28 years, excluding my day job, I have participated in politics /governing; serving almost 20 years as a Beaufort County Commissioner.

Joe Biden, in his diminished state of acuity, is at least becoming more honest about an issue that I have well known for almost all of my last 28 yeas: Democrats, now Democratic Socialists, understand that they own the vote of Black folks.

We have just assumed that everyone knew that they (Black voters) were being kept on the Democrat (Democratic Socialist) plantation. We, I thought this was common knowledge at this point.

Thanks Ted. I always enjoyed your minimalist critiques are worthy firearms.

Good post as usual.

I am writing a resolution for the Beaufort County Commissioners to consider, part of which will be to ask request that no more "stimulus" be passed until they correct the first stimulus bill.

Maybe this is a small beginning of order beginning to be restored in North Carolina.

True words Alex.

There is not much forethought originating from the policies of politicians, especially from the Democratic Socialists.

It almost is a Constitutional provision, but then gives state's the right how conduct the election, providing all citizens have equal access to vote.

The Democratic Socialists are trying to use the Coronavirus Pandemonium as an excuse to do some extra-curricular voter discovery and proper placement of that vote.

Simply make it so that if you can't get to the polls, you can't vote. It should be law, to vote in person.

Lies, hypocrisy, non patriotism, reliance on the Fake News and stupidity is the mark of every Democratic Socialist.

Thank-you times two.

Please feel free to comment and contribute a post when interested. We are seeking to boost the Members area, and turn that into a local Social Network. The proprietary CMS that powers this site, which is the only one created of this magnitude in eastern NC, was been by folks from Beaufort County.

In other words, if we can grow BCN, that is one small piece of the puzzle to grow my company Symbiotic Networks, and grow jobs here in Beaufort County on an organic level.

I get a little wordy sometimes, but thanks, and we at BCN really appreciate folks like you.

I really appreciate the work you and Hood Richardson are doing for Beaufort County. Keep up the good work. Also, I really like your site, Beaufort County Now.

Even though Tropical Storm Arthur is about petered-out, BCN provides the last update with PDF.

To be fair this western Beaufort County non event was nothing like what hit the Outer Banks.

This is what happens when an Authoritarian politician, like Governor Roy Cooper, starts to lose his political grip.

This is a very "real and present danger"; not that Joe China would understand such, with his son Hapless Hunter Biden claiming a huge paycheck annually from China's Communist Party.

This is what happens when our Republic has a real president and vice president in office as opposed to the Hussein /Joe China administration.

So, the Broward Coward is back on the job; a job that he did in a state of cowardice; and with back pay.

That is messed up.

Is it not ironic how Democratic Socialist Non Patriots in congress and their propagandist media are lecturing real patriots, concerned about the Rule of Law, that they should only focus and care about an issue that they certainly were not concerned about just 2 1/2 months ago - the Coronavirus Pandemic?

I could argue that this is yet just another crisis where these Democratic Socialists can push their Socialist /Communist agenda, which is the extent that they care, yet, I will not wax that cynical in argument

I now will simply argue that the Republicans in congress are the only members of that body who actually care about fixing the Coronavirus conundrum, while these same Republicans remain concerned about the Rule of Law, as well as putting into place provisions to make our elections as fraud free as is possible, which, of course, are two issues that Democratic Socialists would never truly be concerned with.

I would like to close with: Every time I hear one of these hypocritical Stupids utter one of their well worn cliches, like "we can walk and chew gum at the same time" or "Science!", I almost always chuckle, usually with a incredulous "dumbass" descriptor thrown in.

This is where the NCACC goes off the rails from a complete lack of actually considering all factors of a complicated matter.

Therefore, this county commissioner, Stan Deatherage, humbly begs that the NC congressional delegation representing our citizens in Washington, DC. DO NOT vote on any Socialist bill in the House of Representatives that uses the Coronavirus Crisis as an excuse to transform America into a Socialist /Communist /Authoritarian state, which is, in absolute terms, the prime objective of the Democratic Socialist Party.

Furthermore, state governments and local governments have the Police Power to readily tax their citizens to whatever limit they do desire, and may do so at will, which is their constitutional prerogative.

Hood and I may bring that resolution back to the commissioners at the next general meeting if the NC Democratic Socialist governor goes full Authoritarian.

When the Democratic Socialist Governor unilaterally shuts down the small businesses in North Carolina there will be political push back since the political forum is their only possibility of remedy.
Commented: Thursday, May 14th, 2020 @ 10:28 am By: Stan Deatherage
They did that first in November, 2019 -

After that vote, many county employees came to both me and Hood to question the wisdom of limiting our citizens' Second Amendment rights, therefore, we tried to see if we could get it passed with just the county employees and that failed too.

Beaufort County Commissioners Ignore the Second Amendment Rights of Beaufort County citizens.

If one has question as to the true reason New York was hit far harder by the Coronavirus than any other state: Read this post.

It is not so much the state /city's aversion to Faith Based Charity, but a constant and continual embrace of abject stupidity that keeps New York as one of America's top messed up places.

Colleges and Universities were great advocates of shutting down America's economy, and still, only a very few of them qualify for SBA grants and loans, yet they were quickly given that money depriving far more qualified candidates for which the money was intended.

An investigation is immediately warranted.

I have known for almost a decade that Governor Roy Cooper is no Constitutional scholar, and yet, on many occasions, he pretends to be.

I would be shocked if he and his administration is not sued over some terrible injustice done in defense of Authoritarianism over Constitutional propriety.

Please be aware that your right to vote in a free election is being challenged by Democratic Socialists and their Democratic Socialists lawyers, who openly wish to promote the greater opportunity for Voter Fraud in North Carolina.

Never has this nation destroyed its perfectly functioning economy over a disease; not even the Spanish Flu in 1918 that was far more devastating than the Coronavirus. It must never happen again.

Just a few years ago, many "brilliant bureaucrats" administering college websites were led to believe that it was best to switch from their current Content Management (CMS) Systems to ubiquitous and open-sourced Word Press CMS, where if one gets hacked, well, GOOD LUCK!

Why anyone, who cares about the safety of their critical site, acting as a data platform for their center of higher learning, would devolve to the Word Press CMS is mind boggling stupid to me and others like me that know better.

Wil was in his youth also an opera singer and a Spiritualist. Several uncanny things happened while I was in his presence. At one time in 2008, we were walking together in London around Charing Cross Road, animatedly discussing the opera singer Janet Baker, when we both simultaneously and abruptly halted in front of a staircase that led up to a nondescript second-story. We somehow were strangely and in fact absolutely COMPELLED to ascend the staircase, and at the top, uninvited, we opened an unmarked door, and suddenly and unexpectedly found ourselves in an old-fashioned London gentleman's club, with damask red carpeting, flocked wallpaper and low ceilings. There were older gentlemen seated about, reading newspapers and taking tea. But, to our utter amazement and delight, on all the walls were maybe a hundred photographs of... Janet Baker!

Considering the abject lack of patriotism in the Democratic Socialist party - just an abysmal lack of any love for country, integrity or decency toward their fellowman - I am very happy and proud of the younger Republicans who have learned to fight for what is right.

Our Colleges and Universities, for the greater part, need a massive overhaul because they are the ones educating and indoctrinating these Democratic Socialist non patriots fools.

Few called me. I wonder why?

When a so-called Republican (some actually have referred to themselves as Conservatives) can be swayed by a few phone calls, you ain't got much for a politician.
