1 Samuel 17:8 "Goliath stood and shouted to the ranks of Israel, Why do you come out and line up for battle? Am I not a Philistine, and are you not the servants of Saul? Choose a man and have him come down to me."
WV House of Delegates candidate David Bender was on the show last Thursday. We learned that David, a Marshall University student from Nitro High School, has bought a home in Huntington. I was very impressed that a sophomore college student from Cross Lanes, WV bought a fixer-upper and was making repairs so he could move in soon. In that interview, David was talking about the working on his house.
Listen to my first interview with David...
I had David back on the show this morning so he could tell his personal story of local government tyranny. It seems that only hours after his first appearance, David's house was visited by Code Enforcement. David said that a City of Huntington Compliance Officer went to his house and left a warning about a building permit. David was threatened with a $500 fine or 30 days in jail!
David says that the mind-set for this kind of thuggery was put into law with what he calls the unconstitutional Home Rule Law.
He says, "I do want to point out that one of my Democratic opponents, Jim Morgan, voted to allow this (Home Rule) to happen."
David says he wasn't sure he needed the permit so he called the compliance officer. He has since gotten the permit. But it was what the officer told him that is unbelievable!
It seems that David was bullied by the officer! David says the officer brought up something about his roof. David replied that he'd have a contractor take care of it. Then the officer said something about "ripping the house down"!
Listen to David's story here...from today's interview.
Like the David who would later become King, I think David Bender will stand against this Goliath-like bully! Tyranny MUST be defeated at all levels...so get your sling and your stone and get to the battle!
STAND & FIGHT!
1 Samuel 17:48,49 "As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him. Reaching into his bag and taking out a stone, he slung it and struck the Philistine on the forehead. The stone sank into his forehead, and he fell facedown on the ground."
David Bender is a Republican candidate for the WV House of Delegates in District 16 - Cabell County.
