A globally acknowledged, often respected, closed and powerful society of noble purpose has, over the years, been subject to controversy. But seldom has it been so dishonored and disgraced through actions of some local West Virginia members.

Think for yourself and connect the dots, the full list shows they still have dead people on their membership list just like the 2010 voters list. Odd that they can send the message through membership they want someone to just play ball in order to get elected, include a long time House of Delegates member, bring in their candidate for County Commissioner twice by their current record, put people on the Executive Committees, get the Sheriffs tax deputy/Magistrate Judge clerk positions, put a members son as Governors Lobbyist who hires ex GCEDA Director and handles Little Kanawha Parkway when their choice goes out of office, become perpetual alternating members of the GSC BOG plus get one of their owns property picked for a new school site, offend every decent member for 600 miles and no one knows. Rogue and in control without consideration for the community describes this faction of the order very well. The very purpose of their existence is to help their fellow man and one another. Their actions reveal that they take very good care of themselves and do it at the expense of the community. We should comment that they will put the schools on Butchers property anyway although voters said no, they got their way by takeover and nobody should have put up with that.
Now, at least the people can see what it is that their so called leadership is really so very upset about. All of the bad conduct being exposed that disgraces the national organization. The bad press has revealed conduct that can not bear the light of day with their constituents, hence these comments from orders seeking to ban WV Chapters:
Do not decide the TRUTH beforehand thereby perhaps allying yourself with what may become the less honorable or less noble position. Remain neutral, investigate, educate yourself and then try to make the best possible decision you can on your own coming from your heart and your conscience not from the lynch crowd who have already made a pre judgment.
Those that pre-judge are then muzzled and when they find one of their group that is out of line, unxxxxxxx, untruthful they cannot speak out or right a wrong because they have agreed in advance to support other groups no matter what.
The Good Old Boys Gentleman’s Agreement – you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours. You promise never to criticize me and I promise I will never criticize you no matter what the circumstances. It smacks of our Congressmen who tell their peers, you vote for my earmark and I’ll vote for yours.
“As I am sure most of you are aware, it is a terrible, repugnant state of affairs within the borders of West Virginia for the average xxxxx.
Seems like a lot of people no longer require their guidance.
