I'm having some time off just now so I will simply deal with a
couple of mails I have received. First comes from Chris Peeples
Though I agree that conspiring to deceive the taxpayer is
wrong, I do sympathize with Mr. Flick. I don't know the man
but have always resented having to pay property taxes on a
property where I had no right to make a living. I had the
County tell me that I couldn't build gazebos on my farm and
had to move my business in 1985 (Amish build stuff on their
farms). Where do we draw the lines of private property and a
right to earn a living. Obviously Mr. Flick is just limping by
and the township wants to help "their own". I have somewhat
mixed feeling about destroying someone's livelihood for the
sake of some confiscatory tendencies' of government.
Chris is a braver man than I to allow release of his name. Now
if you later discover later that he is not allowed to live in
his house because the township has lost the papers to prove it,
or if you hear his wife is accused of running a brothel from
their home, remember you heard it here first!
I don't disagree with you. What the issue is, in it's
entirety, is that this was ruled on by the Chester County
courts and this was an issue with the neighbors. This is why
zoning was made. I don't agree with certain aspects of zoning,
but that is why it takes good people in office to fix the
laws. The laws need to be enforced. There are many instances
where the township turns it back on violators if they are
"friends" and attacks those they perceive as "enemies". Either
you enforce all, or none.
I have no doubt that the Flecks are nice people. I am not
picking on them. What I am demonstrating is that the township
is not doing things in accordance with the law except for when
it suits them. The question then becomes, where else are the
practices of ignoring the law going on. Is it in the taxpayers
pocket once again? The rule of thumb is that there are twelve
rats for every one you see. How many more things are going on
that are hidden?
May I quote your e-mail in my newsletter? I will do it with or
without your name, at your discretion. We can change it a
touch if you think it points too directly at you. I won't
quote it at all unless you agree.
Yes, you can post with name if you like. I'm not bashful about
my position on things. There's not much I get from the
Township for my excessive taxes so I suppose there's little
they could take away if they didn't like my positions.
Then I received an email from firstname.lastname@example.org
It is an abusive mail therefore I feel free to quote his email
Hiding behind an alias gives you no credibility. Man up
and use your name.
The main thing to be held in contempt is your lack of a
This was my reply to jamie
difference who I am or whether you believe me. Just read the
proof I send and make your own mind up.
Seems the opposition can be abusive. Rember Larry Westfall
wrote "We will pound your weasel face in the ground!!!!!!"
But I looked into
this a little and what do you think? Jamie is not on my mailing
list. He is not even a friend of someone on my mailing list.
He is a friend of a friend of someone on my mailing list. And
whatsmore, he is closely involved with Andy Fleck who is reputed
to have been at involved in Jamie's business. Andy is Ken
Fleck's brother. Andy and Ken ride dirt bikes, Jamie fixes
them. They are all closely involved and grew up together. I
just recently sent out an email saying that maybe Ken Fleck was
maybe not that bad but if his friends write abusive emails like
that maybe that is is how Ken thinks. Maybe I was wrong to
suggest that Ken Fleck might be a nice guy?
But perhaps Jamie is misled? In my investigation, I found that
with 4-5 other guys he founded PATH (Pennsylvania Trailing
Hands) which is a non profit that does trail maintenance at
State Parks voluntarily and without pay. This keeps the trails
clear for all of us to use. Jamie is a longtime friend of the
Flecks and is apparently defending his friend, unfortunately not
hearing all the facts. It might be a blind side or perhaps he
just doesn't want to see the facts for what they are.
Nowhere will you find me calling names. I report facts, and
give proof. No one would be happier than I if I had no
corruption to report in West Vincent.
As usual, if you want to be on or off my list, or have some
comments or suggestions, or know someone who would like to be on
the list, please let me know. Feel free to forward this email
on to anyone you think might be interested. Especially though,
if you don't want to continue to receive my mails, please tell
me. I'll take you off the list and confirm that I have done
so. Just hit reply to this email or write to email@example.com
