More, More, More: Diantha McKeel’s insatiable appetite for higher taxes (video)

| April 13, 2015 | 2 Comments

Albemarle County’s Jack Jouett District Supervisor, Diantha McKeel, has a thing for taxes. From candidate McKeel’s “all choked up” performance in response to a question on property taxes from Charlottesville Tomorrow, to her present day role as a Statist, tax increase crusader, Diantha McKeel loves her some taxpayer money.

Based on a concept by “Singing Susan” Reed, and featuring the vocal and lyrical stylings of Carole Thorpe, here is a video homage to Albemarle County’s own Tax Monster, Supervisor Diantha McKeel:

More, More, More! (Taxes)
New lyrics by Carole Thorpe

Ooh, how do you like her now?
Ooh, how do you like her now?

So, have you heard the cry from
Diantha McKeel?
Drain taxpayer bounty
In Albemarle County!
Lady, you know
Our fear of you is real.
If she goes unchallenged,
Diantha’s gonna steal.

More, more, more!
How will she tax you? How will she tax you?
She wants more!
Where will she tax you? When will she tax you?
More, more, more!
How will she tax you? How will she tax you?

Ooh, how do you like her now?
Ooh, how do you like her now?

Diantha’s not alone
To pick your pocket clean.
All Democrats conspire
To raise your taxes higher.
Get on the phone and write and scream and holler!
If you give a dime,
They’re gonna take a dollar.

More, more, more!
How will they tax you? How will they tax you?
They want more!
Where will they tax you? When will they tax you?
More, more, more!
How will they fleece you? How will they rob your dough??

Remember at the polls,
A word of dire warning:
Government gets bloated
Because of how you voted!

More, more, more!
How will they tax you? How will they tax you?
They want more!
Where will they tax you? When will they tax you?
More, more, more!
How will they tax you? How will they tax you?
They want more!
How will they fleece you? How will they rob you?

  1. Love it! Carole is a rock star. Diantha, consider yourself mocked!

  2. Carole Thorpe says:

    Just as Rob and I predicted, Diantha McKeel (along with Ann Mallek, Liz Palmer, and Brad Sheffield) ALL voted to raise our property taxes again this year…and more than LAST year. Today, they double County Manager Tom Foley’s original request of .01 per $100 assessed value to .02 per $100 assessed value.

    More, more, more.

    To be fair in a “post-production” note, Democrat BOS chairwoman Jane Dittmar joined lone Republican Ken Boyd in voting against the .02 tax increase. I am pleased that Jane decided to buck the traditional Democrat practice of hiking taxes this time. Rob and I cannot remake the song and video at this point to reflect this surprising turn of events, but please keep this in mind as you watch it and/or share it with others.

    Thanks to Ken and Jane for standing up for County property owners. As for the other four…well…I hope you’ll demonstrate your displeasure by contacting them and via the polls the next time they’re up for re-election.
