White people in Belington, West Virginia got a taste of what happens when democracy goes bad and a stupid person is elected into political power and can't be speedily removed except with a bullet.
A town councilman of Belington, with a population of less than 2,000, pushed a lot of anger buttons when he wrote a draft ordinance that would require anyone moving to Belington to apply for a permit to live there and pay a $25.00 fee. The reason, "Councilman Max Grove doesn't want people to move to Belington to just sit on a couch and collect a check"! Grove believes that anyone that moves to Belington need to pay rent or property taxes, pay for utilities, food, gas, medical care, and whatever else needed.
The draft ordinance says that folks living there already before it gets passed would be grandfathered in for one year which means a permit will be required on an annual basis for everyone living there.
Also, in the ordinance that having a generator on a persons property would not be allowed and residents have to provide proof they are paying utilities. 60 people crowded into a hearing of the ordinance opposed to the ordinance.
