Welcome to Adairville Kentucky, Camp Dirtville, Camp Trashville. I don’t know, it might be Camp Racist??? Who knows. I have been doing some math, and running the numbers, and to my knowledge, there is a total of SIX, count them 6 full time city employees / workers, and ALL of them are WHITE, not a single African American, not 1, not a single one. No Asian, no Hispanic, no Middle Eastern, no African American, ALL of the city employees are white Caucasian people. At least 1 of them should be African American, but I think two or three would be better, I know the African American people in town treat me MUCH, MUCH better than the white people.
On the city council, to my knowledge, there are only TWO African Americans, out of SIX people. http://adairvilleky.us/wordpress1/city-government/city-council/ . So, lets do some math shall we, and see how diverse Camp Dirtville is??? The population here is about 77.4% white, 15.95% black, and that equals 93.35%, the rest are Asian and Hispanic and mixed races and other races. I like numbers, so lets see what they say.
Six people working for the city, and six people on the city council, that is TWELVE people, drawing paychecks, in a town the size of 893 people. That means for every 74.41 people, mostly elderly, the disabled, and many in poverty, there is a person drawing a check from the city. I do not see this as right or ethical or necessary in any way shape or form, and I have been to many city council meetings, in my opinion they really don’t do much, at all.
As we see, even though African Americans make up almost SIXTEEN percent of our population, there is not ONE, not 1 employed by the city full time that I know of. You tell me???? What is racism???? What is inequality??? Does it look like this??? Is something wrong with Camp Dirtville??? Is this happening on purpose???? I know how I have been treated, like when I went to a meeting, and offered our business services, there was ZERO enthusiasm, ZERO gratitude, ZERO genuine happiness for me, a disabled veteran, who went back to work, and started a business.
It should be illegal to have a town this size, getting grants from the state and maybe federal government, and to not employ at least SOME African Americans and other races and mixed races as full time employees!!!!!!!! If you think this is wrong, I invite you to write a letter, or letters, to the Mayor and or City Hall, and send one to the Governor and the Senator.
https://www.wired.com/2010/08/the-psychology-of-power/ this article is VERY telling and interesting, and I quote, ” Now for the bad news, which concerns what happens when all those nice guys actually get in power. While a little compassion might help us climb the social ladder, once we’re at the top we end up morphing into a very different kind of beast.”
“It’s an incredibly consistent effect,” Mr. Keltner says. “When you give people power, they basically start acting like fools. They flirt inappropriately, tease in a hostile fashion, and become totally impulsive.” Mr. Keltner compares the feeling of power to brain damage, noting that people with lots of authority tend to behave like neurological patients with a damaged orbito-frontal lobe, a brain area that’s crucial for empathy and decision-making. Even the most virtuous people can be undone by the corner office.”
“Why does power lead people to flirt with interns and solicit bribes and fudge financial documents? According to psychologists, one of the main problems with authority is that it makes us less sympathetic to the concerns and emotions of others. For instance, several studies have found that people in positions of authority are more likely to rely on stereotypes and generalizations when judging other people. They also spend much less time making eye contact, at least when a person without power is talking.”
“Although people almost always know the right thing to do—cheating is wrong—their sense of power makes it easier to rationalize away the ethical lapse. For instance, when the psychologists asked the subjects (in both low- and high-power conditions) how they would judge an individual who drove too fast when late for an appointment, people in the high-power group consistently said it was worse when others committed those crimes than when they did themselves. In other words, the feeling of eminence led people to conclude that they had a good reason for speeding—they’re*important *people, with important things to do—but that everyone else should follow the posted signs.”
As for city officials here in Camp Dirtville speeding, I have seen it over and over again on High Street and other streets, and I know they are not going 25 mph, I see the same offenders over and over again. I am going to sleep now, but when I get up tomorrow, I am going to write more. I think what is going on in Adairville Kentucky is wrong, and people need to know about it. I think our state needs to know about it, state officials, and the federal government. I have heard it said, “Authority attracts the worst kind of people”, and I think I may agree with that statement.
I voted again today, it needs to be done, and of course it was for DONALD TRUMP and MITCH MCCONNELL, I do NOT recommend ANYONE vote for Amy McGrath, she is not qualified to be in politics in my opinion!!! We do NOT need a female senator in Kentucky or as the president, no way, no how!!!! There are plenty, plenty of websites online, where you can go and see videos of what a lawless society is like, where people who commit crimes are punished by mobs, don’t allow our nation to become like that, keep it civil and safe, vote for MEN in politics, always!!! In my opinion, the most dangerous vicious people in America, are over weight feminists who love to beat men down. Thanks!!!
