Part 2 Curt Kirk and his Marxist name calling

I thought I'd seen enough of Kirk's name calling just writing this blog yesterday ...
THEN ...After reading in the Sanford Herald the last 'Thumbs Down' about Kirk's name calling, seeming to be all part of the political play-game . Really just another slap on the wrist ? okay it pissed me off .

HMM ,  I wondered just how long Kirk has been on this Marxist kick ? 
Wow , This man loves to rant and call names . 
Turns out he has even called our President a Marxist ! 
I did a search using these words only ... 
"Kirk D. Smith" marxist 
 Found much more than I could stomach to read .
The places he reads are definitely Not places I am Normally reading from ! So I took snips to share with you so you don't have to go there ...
Here is proof the man is really  ________ , you fill in the blank ?
Obsessed comes to my mind .
 A comment at the last blog said "Kirk needed to get back on his meds" 
Click any of the pics to make bigger . 

Well that was about as much as I could stand . Are you ready to vote BLUE ? 
Please go Vote ...

BOC Curt Kirk discourteous attacks advance

Curt: definition, rudely brief in speech or abrupt in manner.
 Well Kirk used to be brief ...
Kirk D Smith is ranting and raving like a mad man . I thought Jim Womack was something, the way he'd argue with us & belittle us in the papers about topics even using alias names to do so. I have done many blogs on him as well...
But Kirk takes the prize for GOING TOO FAR , He has gone way too far and has lots of us wondering 'How far will he be Allowed to go ? '

    I posted about the attacks of our commissioners Kirk and Jim went on toward a '30 year county employee' that dared say "she felt there had not been or is now a need for concealed guns in the Social Service Dept." at the Sept 8th , BOC meeting .
The initials BOC is starting to look like it stands for "Bullies Ordering Commands" 

Jim proved he did not even understand the law/resolution  they were trying to enforce while aggressively cross examining her . He asked her "why do you only mention guns ? Why not knives?" When the actual Resolution was about concealed guns only ! When Jim is corrected... he only flinches and starts a new attack !
Then Kirk even tried to use scripture to back this gun law ??  there-is-no-scripture-about-guns.html

I had gone to that BOC meeting to address Kirk's recent of many ranting LTE (letters to the editor)   /LETTER-How-is-it-that-Water-Equals-Life?  September 5th ,where he ended his rant with ...'I guess the earth-worshiping, tree-hugging, Eco-Marxists by their actions denying our energy independence would rather have “blood for water.” So how is that “Water equals Life?” '
Kirk D. Smith
After watching the drama of the Gun issue , I decided Not to confront Kirk at this meeting with the copy of his LTE from the paper along with a printout of another Rude insult on his facebook profile and also a 3 page copy of the 'BOC ethics rules' ! 

Many people , as I replied with comments online to his LTE . Some wrote a LTE too responding to him which he does not even acknowledge he reads ... other than Writing another Ranting LTE ?

Last night I decided to look around again to see what new Rants he has posted ??? I am posting just some here and
So I ask you , "HOW FAR should he be ALLOWED to go ? "

  Sept 27th ... He was on a roll..of insults ....

 Kirk does Not just have hateful remarks about people that are fighting for the environment
here are some other topics he has dwelled on lately ...  
from the Rant 

Again I ask you , "HOW FAR should he be ALLOWED to go ? "

Well casings fail in Fracking process

I was sent this article by a Profracker at our facebook page . 
We have them coming more often now . I have been told that is a good sign that the word is getting out there how really terrible fracking can be and the GOP G&O fans are working hard to debunk us . Of course most will go away after elections . Most don't even live in a shale area either ! 

Duke scientists: Faulty wells, not fracking, contaminated drinking water in Texas, Pennsylvania

Read more here:

From the article ....The study blames the water contamination on leaky well shafts near the earth’s surface, not on the process of hydraulic fracturing itself, which takes place thousands of feet underground.

Vikram Rao, chairman of the state’s Mining and Energy 

Commission, said this latest research is a reminder of 


it’s crucial that North Carolina have the tools in place to 

properly regulate shale gas exploration.
“This is exactly why we need good rules, and good 

adherence to the rules,” he said. 

Speaking as an individual and not as chairman of the 

Mining and Energy Commission, Rao, a former 

Halliburton chief technology officer, said much of the 

industry has long known that if water contamination was 

found it was the result of poor cement jobs.

Read more here:
Cementing is an essential aspect of drilling. Energy companies thread steel pipes into bored holes and squeeze cement around the pipes. The cement prevents gas or fluids from moving between the pipe and the exposed rock. A poorly cemented well can create a path for contaminants to migrate upward and leech into shallow porous rocks that hold drinking water. - 

Regulators have NOT addressed the problem with any realism. The argument that regulation can lead to "safe fracking" is senseless. To frack a well, you have to cement it, and cement inevitably fails. "Safe fracking" is a contradiction in terms.
Leaking oil and gas wells are more than statistics. Failure rates mean thousands across the nation have enough contaminants in their water and land to render them unfit for residential or agricultural use. They're left with homes they are forced to abandon, and compromised health.

Therese Vick said it best ...Whether its drilling, 

spilling, well casings, pits leaking- if gas 

development wasn't happening, the groundwater 

would not be impacted. 

Industry repeatedly obfuscates by talking about

 one stage of the whole process, when they well 

know that the public interprets "fracking" as all

 the activities on a well pad.

Here is more Facts... 
the NC Government promised the best rules on fracking ! They just did not say they were for us ! 
MEC rules are Not GOOD for North Carolinians but for the drilling companies ! 

Stats show that cement casing do fail often . Check out this chart and remember this is per 100 wells fracked. 

It is a bad well casing technique, not a "Bad fracking technique". 
They CAN NOT do fracking without the casings right ??

Pro Frack Womack gets holes in his Myths

See how Jim Womack still is out there every chance he gets to promote fracking in NC , but he did not expect this showdown with a PA fractivist !
Ron Gulla visited North Carolina for this showdown at WCU with frack friendly Jim Womack, Chairman of the NC Mining & Energy Commission. According to Womack, who is also a Lee County Commissioner, fracking is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Ron Gulla shot a bunch of holes in Jim's Myths by sharing many of the realities of fracking in Pennsylvania.

Tea-party tried & failed to out rally Fracktivist at MEC Hearing

When are they going to learn ? You can't fight the passion of the people who are Really going to have to live with the shale drilling . 
In Sanford : Which almost did not happen after Womack's fear mongering ,see more about that here and read-the-dead-of-night-jim-womack-e-mail-everybodys-talking-about/ 

They came Bussed in , promised to be fed and free propaganda for all . NO experience necessary.
 Rumor was many came from a retirement home ... ? 

I wish I would have asked them questions but they did not seem to want to be approached by anyone but Jim Womack . 
LOL , Ed Harris in the big white hat , is from here in Lee Co. He did not give them a break ! He got in the front of the line to sign up to speak before they rushed in and he made Sure they got an ear full or 2 on why He is fighting Forced pooling Fracking ! 
I guess they had a curfew because they all left about 7ish  ...

Tea Party Organizer Lanelle Alsip of Surry County was at the Hearing at Sanford and was quoted by the Sanford Herald ... Fracking-hearing-draws-a-crowd  

Lanelle is the one with the Coke in her hand . I love the way our FRACKFREENC signs stood out on this picture ! 
She said the people who were against fracking were only against it because they were afraid of something new.She said fracking is necessary because everyone needs energy in their daily lives.
You can go here and see how they prepared for their MEC hearings , this time . The young girl in this pic wrote about it in a blog .  

Well it seems Lanelle seems to be into these events ...She was bussed into Raliegh on Weds and now here tonight. Plus she came in 2012 ! she organized the last bus of SHALE YES folks to Sanford in 2012 ...
 and I bet she helped with this Friday's event too .

Now let's jump ahead to Sept 12 , 
What won't the API do to promote their shale drilling ?
Obviously they don't screen their promoters .

There is NO Scripture about guns.

A bunch of us local grassroots Fracktivist planned to go to the BOC meeting Sept 8th . We planned on sitting in just to see what happened on what is Normally pretty boring as I am told . Not this time , Concealed Guns were the topic so it was a packed house . 
Topic : 
Resolution (first reading) to Amend Section 2-31 of the Lee County Code of Ordinances Concerning Concealed Handguns on County Property, and a revised Concealed Carry –Employee Personnel Policy. 

​This is a link to the whole meeting if you care to download it . It took me about 15 minutes to download . It is really weird how it seems Jim and Kirk have a volume control button on some of this audio ? I was clear across the room and picked up Commissioners Amy Dalrymple and Ricky Frazier  , yet my audio is better ?
Full agenda here 
​ ​

The first few minutes made me want to gag ... They had a little "that a boy certificate" for Kirk praising him for BLAH BLAH BLAH.. . Then Jim gets one for Fracking , Yep you read it right ! Then it was on pros and cons for guns ....
37 minutes in Kirk attacks a  30 year social worker for her comments about guns in the workplace not being wanted  , a couple minutes later Jim comes in ranting at her about 'Only bringing up guns as a concealed weapon' . "What about Knives?" he says only to be cut off and corrected by the Co attorney that is Is only about guns !
Proving He did not even know the True wording of the resolution he and Kirk are pushing was for guns only  . 

Then 1hr and 20 minutes in ,Kirk comes back to attack the same County employee as before but with more disgust this time  to the point Commissioner Robert Frazier said he was out of order  . 
He went on ranting about it even after told not to. 
Then moments later Kirk used scripture to back his reason to carry a gun at work ! Luke 22:36 .

Anyone who quotes scripture to further his position about guns (or any other political topic) is not "using" Scripture as it was intended. 
The Bible can be used to reshape one's life. It should not be used to try to win hot-issue arguments. That shows little respect for the Scripture you say you believe , IMHO.

I have to admit my video is shaky But it shows their faces and reactions better and it also can be heard better in most of mine . 
Here are some pieces of mine . I could not sit there and hold it still for all of it. 

 Not sure why it shows so shaky but you can hear it ! 
This one really cracked me up !  Not the part of Jim picking on this County Employee of 30 years  , but the fact that 'Mr Know IT ALL' , did not know what He was talking about .
Yet he still continues to drill this lady . about 4 mins in on this one Kirk dangles a sign around ... this dude is weird , watch his face and eyes . 

Other topic : Environmental 
Last minute Resolution request brought in by Kirk ...  Approved request for the Chairman to send a letter to the Association in reference to a Resolution supporting "the repeal of NC Senate Bill 3." You can see my video here at Facebook without a facebook account.
