I have no doubt that several lawyers, public relations people, school officials, law enforcement personalities and general busy bodies are at this very moment wondering what on earth they are to do about Rich Hoffman. I received more than a handful of phone calls yesterday from friends, family and enemies wanting to know why I cared so much about the situation at Lakota Public Schools where it is now clear that the administration desired very much to rid themselves of their PR director and they spent a lot of money to do it. For a review of this situation click on the link:
Much of these conversations centered around a presumption that I gave a rat’s ass what people thought of me and that somehow public relations spin would work with me, which I found insulting. So I patiently listened to the nearly dozen pleas for reprieve, some of them were actually well-intentioned and useful, but most were obvious attempts to steer me in a direction, away from the path that I know is correct.
But how do I know what’s correct where others do not? That is always the question, isn’t it? How could I know something that “they” don’t? After all, weren’t they educated to know things, and trained to sell that knowledge back to society as a kind of exchange for their time and trouble? And if I did not follow along the path of their orthodox, then how was I qualified to cast an opinion?
Well, this particular quandary requires some basic education. I sympathize that much of what I say and do will require a fresh perspective from the typical reader and listener of my points of view. And to qualify the thoughts of these people, I would refer them to the classic Clint Eastwood film, The Gauntlet.
In that movie Clint Eastwood plays a cop who has to transport a Las Vegas prostitute to a murder trial of which she was a witness. Unfortunately for Eastwood, the police force has set him up because they deemed him too stupid and naive to see that organized crime wanted to kill the prostitute and the police chief knew that to provide cover for the murder, a cop would have to die also. So the police chief picked Eastwood to escort the girl in for the trail so both could be killed without any real trouble.
During the journey Eastwood learns that many of the people in the system he knew and trusted over the years are actually far more dirty and corrupt than the Vegas prostitute, and compared to her, most of the people in his life were actually much bigger whores. This postulates my position over politics in general and what I’ve learned about the role of public education in our communities and can be seen vividly in that document request exhibited in that essay mentioned. Most people conduct their lives like whores; they sell their time away often too cheaply and are surprised that people don’t respect them when they flaunt how much money they have. In fact I watch with some levels of fascination at the topics of conversation among families over holiday breaks and company fiestas just how important respect is to so many people, and they are surprised when people don’t respect them when it’s obvious that money is all they care about. Just like the whore who takes off her clothes, lets some man or woman ravage her body for personal pleasure, the whore gets paid, takes a shower then does the whole thing again for the next paying job; how is this any different from what a lot of people do every day?
Is a paying job not whoring because it involves a school with children in it, because both occupations take personal liberties with their conscience to make money? I do not believe that the PR director who charges the tax payers such large sums of money as shown in those billing statements for listening to the radio, or answering emails, or advising the superintendent on what to say to the press has any more social value than a Nevada prostitute.
It’s not just the education profession, but rather I’d say it’s virtually any hourly job where nothing tangible is produced which equates to prostitution in my mind. For example, if you are a lawyer and charge by the hour to listen to a client, you are no different from a whore. The only real difference is you leave your cloths on to perform your job. In fact, you get paid to dress up, not dress down, and to not maintain a fantasy of sexual release but the fantasy of power given to you by politicians, your peers who wrote laws at the state and local level to give you business. All your meetings with a judge, all your depositions, all your court appearances are simply role-playing to maintain the fantasy of law and order. If you are a doctor, in most cases you are charging by the visit to write notes so clients can get off work and perhaps fill a drug prescription you know your patients don’t need. You know most of your patients don’t need the drugs you prescribe but you do it anyway so that the pharmacy down the road can have the business. You don’t want to believe you do this; instead you persuade yourself your patient’s need you, and you must convince them of the same to keep them coming back for more.
Pharmacists even with all their education and knowledge are merely being paid to keep people addicted to pharmaceutical products. Once the body’s natural systems become addicted to the products of pharmacy, physical dependency is created and pharmacists know it, yet they continue day in and day out to keep their mouths shut because they don’t get paid to think, they get paid to administer drugs. Think of the teacher who sells their 7.5 hours a day away and their dreams of helping young children to learn halfway through their 20’s that they are but pawns to the labor union and the political power those unions play in politics. The teachers keep their mouth shut because where else can they make so much money and only work 227 days a year, 7.5 hours a day……A Nevada whorehouse?
Even reporters who thought they’d change the world with their reporting and find once they get their big break for a respected organization like Time Magazine, CNN, or even a local newspaper find out that their editors put caps on their reporting and learn too late that they are simply PR tools who are paid to provide the slant of the company and to like it or quit, just like a prostitute. Or the PTA moms who are on their second marriage and currently having an affair with their coworker while their husbands are out-of-town. These busybodies have a voracious appetite for some bottomless pit of fulfillment who move to a great school district hoping that the school will cover all their personal faults and give their child a shot at being better than they are. So they beg for more tax money when the school administrators demand it and those PTA moms end up sounding just like whores competing for work. (How is this any different from a typical levy campaign?)
I could go on and on, but for simplicity the rule of thumb is, does the job you do make something that can be sold to someone else? Or is what you are making just air spoken from one mouth to the ear of another. If it is the later, you are no better than a prostitute to my way of thinking. That doesn’t mean you don’t have value, after all I would not say that prostitutes are bad people. They are somebody’s children and inside every one of their minds are the hopes and dreams of every human being. But what they do for money not only says a lot about their personal philosophy, but their own sense of worth. The people I admire are those who make things. It might just be a factory worker who makes pencils for $9 per hour, or it might be a developer who creates shopping centers and restaurants. It might be the inventor who creates DNA technology that eliminates the entire pharmaceutical industry. I put the value of that one person over the collective value of every single employee because the inventor made something real. The employees simply showed up to collect money, and wherever there is money, there are always whores on money just like there are always flies on shit. The more money, the more whores looking to take some of it. The pharmacy companies are making pills which are equivalent to the condom manufacturer who supplies a whore house. The values are equitable.
So I am not impressed with any of the characters in the documents seen in the referenced article. None of the PR work impresses me, none of the legal work, none of the administrative work, none of the financial strategy; it all reeks of a whore house to me. I know that this information is a shattering revelation for many who have invested their entire lives into these professions, and that is what drove all the messages I received about my article. But a whore is a whore, and if you are selling yourself for only money, you are doing the same thing that the sex whores are doing, only you don’t take your clothes off to do it. The social value of your endeavor is no different, and getting mad at me won’t change that. Only you can.
If you want to know who are the whores and who are those of value in society it is very easy, the whore performs a task then asks for money. The people of value make money then purchase what they want! The money can be spent and the people of value can always make more whereas the whore cannot. The whore must clean themselves up and sell their time again, and again. They are dependent on the desire of a creator to provide their livilihoods, and will always be at the mercy of lust, hunger, or pity from those who actually make money. And by that measure the grill cook at your local fast food restaurant has more value than the President of the United States because at least the grill cook made a hamburger where all the president did was whore themselves to the highest paid clients. It doesn’t matter if it’s the cat house or The White House, it’s all the same in value.

Want a sneak peek into the future of socialism in America? England is about 20 years ahead of the United States politically and just a few short days ago police raided a bloggers home in the United Kingdom and confiscated his computers because he wrote about an issue called Climategate. You can read about that story here:
After the police took Roger Tallbloke’s computers from his home after knocking on his door with a search warrant and arriving with 6 officers, they gathered up his computers and later informed him that he was not a suspect of anything. They would clone his computer hard drives and return them to him. Isn’t that nice?
Tallblocke is a blogger who covers a lot of science information and apparently the greenie weenies of Europe do not like the facts he’s putting out, so they came up with a search warrant, took his computers and harassed him to the furthest extent of their laws. This story is proof that if there are laws on the books that allow for law enforcement to impose itself upon a population, then they certainly will. England has never enjoyed the kind of freedoms that we have in America, so this kind of behavior may not seem too appalling to most Europeans but they certainly are to those of us who live in America. And we must be cautious of any politician who professes that they wish to make America more like Europe, because what happened to Roger Tallblocke is not acceptable under any circumstances, and is the destination if America follows.
Yet that is what is going on in America. Politicians seem to desire with great lust to send us all into European care once again after leaving that socially stagnate, pretentious cesspool over 200 years ago to fight for freedom, become the most dominant economic powerhouse on the planet with a relatively small country, only to give all that back again and join the European Union under the political affiliation of socialism, because in England the Labour Party is in essence the representative of Socialist International. The recent NDAA Act that passed the American Senate overwhelmingly to allow the military and police to apprehend Americans indefinitely comes from the same mentality of European law.
It is the political platform of the Labour Party to endorse all the “green initiatives” and hijacked sciences as a way to spread socialism to every country on earth. That is their goal. And there are many politicians addicted to power who seek to make a living as part of the political ruling class who openly embrace socialism as the wave of the future. It doesn’t matter to those power-hungry looters that socialism stagnates economic growth and limits the spirit of its people into something that is best resembled in history by The Dark Ages. The ruling class will always have money, so the condition of the rest of society is a trivial matter that they don’t consider.
In America our academic types are notorious for their desire to return to the motherland of Europe, to the age of Victorians. Barack Obama is one of those academic types. It is easy to see how his mind works as he travels extensively and quite elegantly on the tax payer dime to do very little as a manager of the country’s affairs simply to campaign for his next election. His wife has shown a tendency to embrace the role of a queen. Her vacations are extravagant and her personal staff is exquisite.
By the way, Socialist International is currently the dominate government in Spain. Check out the map of countries that are under the influence of that particular group.
America was never supposed to be a land where politicians sought to make a living in politics. America was never supposed to be a land where lawyers who spent a lot of money on becoming a lawyer and failed in private practice used public office to enrich themselves by writing laws that nobody understood so they would be required to translate those obscure laws. America was meant to have politicians who served a term or two and would then retire back to the world from which they came turning over the reins of government to someone else who would sacrifice their time and wisdom to a term of public service.
I was recently at an event with John Kasich and I spoke with people there who have put their names on some bold legislation that many Rhino Republicans have deemed will put an end to John Kasich’s political career. To those who say such things I say, “What makes you think John Kasich as governor of Ohio wishes to run for governor again? Why would he? I wouldn’t.” The very presumption that a politician should have a “career” in politics is the first and most devastating black flag that an electorate should consider when evaluating a potential candidate. NO POLITICIAN should seek an office to become wealthy, secure, or even use it as a networking tool as a lobbyist once their term is done. Such people are just low quality citizens who function in only one service, and that is machine politics. And machine politics does not want a representative republic that votes members out every election cycle. Machine politics desires candidates that can hold their seats so one party can dominate another party in what becomes something more reminiscent of a football game, not a meeting of logic and philosophy.
Machine politics on both sides is attracted to socialism because in socialism there is a place for a ruling elite. Obama clearly sees himself this way, and most members of the House and Senate do as well. Most academics feel that they are the illuminated populace that Plato spoke about in The Republic and it is they who must use their minds to rule the masses. So socialism is for these types, which are as numerous as the stars in a desert sky.
That is the reason the politicians are attempting to push American in the direction of Europe. They desire to keep their power indefinitely so that they are sheltered from the real world with an insulation of invented nobility. That future is not shrouded in secrecy, with unknown elements. We know how socialism has affected other countries, and they are not nearly as prosperous as the United States has been. There is no mystery as to that destination and we are headed there.
Recently the school in my community hired a new superintendent who specializes in Global Education. She promoted this benefit to the residents of our community as though it were a positive thing. But what it really means is that she plans to continue a stronger agenda of teaching socialism in our public schools so that the children we send to her will learn and be ready for the world of tomorrow that politicians like Obama are giving us, by handing America back to Europe like a child who ran away from home and was caught again by the authorities to be dropped back off to their mother to be punished for their youthful rebellion.
With the passage of NDAA, Net Neutrality, Health Care, more commitments to Medicare and the money eating public education system, America will very soon become the place where a simple blogger will receive a visit from the police to have their possessions confiscated, analyzed, and returned only by the discretion of the police state. And we will have this lack of freedom for the simple reason that the politicians we elected into service did not understand the Constitution of the United States and instead sought European refuge for a fruitful career as a ruling elite.

As I attended the Lakota School Board meeting on Monday December 12, 2011 and listened to the pain that the superintendent and board members uttered in their displeasure over H.B. 136 which looks to go to a vote in Columbus early in 2012, the more I realized that every American citizen in the United States should be required to read the book Atlas Shrugged before graduating high school, so they can have a basic understanding of how things work in the world, and how monopolies not only in business, but in government are detrimental to growth both economic and personal. I genuinely felt sorry for these board members and administrators who must watch as their failed perceptions of reality are coming unraveled right in front of their faces. H.B. 136 is the ambitious new bill proposed in March 1st of 2011 by Majority Floor Leader Matt Huffman which extends the school voucher program to parents whose household income is less than $95,000 a year, and will allow them to receive the money from the state to take to the school of their choice. The reason why this is a big deal is because for the first time, the money intended to educate a child will go straight to the child instead of to the school in their district. This is intended to bring about an environment of competition so that all schools can increase their performance and allow parents to choose where they want to send their children to school without having to move from their homes to a new residence in a different district, which is an extreme hardship and prohibitive expense to parents all over Ohio.
The reason I thought of Atlas Shrugged is because the world has unlimited potential not only in education, but energy, finance, health care development, food supply, virtually every conceivable topic, there is a virtual unlimited ceiling to what can be accomplished, and that’s the basic premise behind the classic novel Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand. It is in the empires that humans build that hold back and create the limits that imprison emotionally our entire population, and the reason the Lakota School Board was upset over H.B. 136 is because the part of the education empire that they control is being taken out of their hands. I wish I could explain to them that they need to change their focus onto a much broader intellectual perspective and see that it isn’t the limits of finance, or any other research that is holding back our society. Its people like them, which is exhibited wonderfully in the film THRIVE. You can see a preview of that fantastic film here:
Listening to the details of H.B. 136 in Ohio there isn’t much to be upset about if you are a parent. In short if a family of 4 making up to $100,000 a year they will qualify for $2,313 in voucher funds for their child to send them to the school of their choice. A family of 4 who is making up to $61,000 a year would be eligible for a voucher worth $4,626. Families’ in-between would be awarded amounts equitable on a sliding scale somewhere in between those values. That’s a great option for families across the board in Ohio.
However, the Lakota School Board estimated that if everyone in the district who qualified for a scholarship left Lakota for a different school such as Mason, or Fairfield then Lakota stood to lose up to $12 million dollars per year in potential funding which would wreck their funding projections. The superintendent for Lakota suggested that she was against H.B. 136 for the simple reason that she didn’t want to see the taxpayers of Lakota cover the loss in income that would be caused by the passage of that bill.
Who says that the taxpayers are going to cover the loss in any income? Because we’re not going to. Lakota isn’t the only school expected to see operating deficits with the implementation of HB 136. Mentor Schools report they could lose $5.1 million, and Cardon Schools report they could lose $475,000 annually. The trouble with this thinking is that public schools in their education empire have become dependent on state money and have negotiated very large and lucrative contracts with the teachers unions that benefited the employees, not the kids who attend the school. As it is currently designed school funding in Ohio is to the benefit of the labor unions, and not the parents who pay the taxes. The sheer ignorance in suggesting that the tax payers would be required to cover the loss in revenue with a tax increase is absolutely preposterous.
At Lakota after the third levy defeat in just 18 months the tax payers approved a budget during the last election. They told the district in voting no for the proposed tax increase of a 4.75 mill levy that the budget as it stands is all the money the school is going to get, which is $1,140 per $100,000 of property value assessment. That means that the superintendent of Lakota is required to go to the employees of the district and give them their budget limit and it’s up to those employees to figure out how to live within those parameters. The tail does not wag the dog, the dog wags the tail, but in government-run monopolies, it is the tail that controls the dog apparently, which is why they fail in everything they do.
H.B. 136 seeks to take control back from these monopolies for the benefit of kids and parents all over Ohio. It is the burden of the schools and education profession in general to figure out how they can adjust to these changes. It is not for the duty of the government monopolies such as education to use a socialist philosophy to benefit the employees. It is the employees job to fulfill the requirements of those who employee them. Not the job of the employer to make sure the employees are comfortable and happy and eternally contented so they can retire in luxury.
Not so long ago I had a real ball busting president of a company that I worked directly for who was very upset with my management style. He was one of those guys who believed that rule through fear was the way to go. If you ever saw the film Bad Bosses, he was every single character in that movie. Needless to say I did my own thing anyway, in spite of his attempt to mold my management style into his way of thinking. My style is to utilize the talents of people and their natural inclinations to always find new innovations so that more production can be produced constantly getting faster and faster until a dimensioning marginal return is reached in increases in quality rejections. This particular president enjoyed my innovations because they made the company a lot of money, but at a certain point when that marginal return was reached, he being a typical politician and a looter at heart sought to take credit for my innovations as though he had thought of them and he needed my endorsement to allow him to do so. Typically, such an endorsement is the quiet compliance of admission that he was my superior, which he wasn’t. He might have out ranked me in the orientation of the company, but he did not equal me in intellectual capacity and strategy, so there was no reason I would yield my ground to a human inferior. But to his way of thinking the issue was a pecking order type of thing that would move me up the ladder if I just played the game, which I had no interest in.
When fear, intimidation, and manipulation had no effect on me with the intention to force me to yield to his position which was purely ornamental and I failed to get into line where he sought to place me, in sheer frustration he demanded of me in his office, “Mr. Hoffman, you think you are so smart, you think you are such a know-it all, you are so smug. But you don’t know a damn thing about management. How do you know you are a good manager?”
I replied to him, “When I’ve eliminated my job. When efficiencies and production requirements no longer require my day-to-day attention, and it’s time to lose my job, that’s when I know I’ve done a good job.”
He gapped at me for a long minute in fury then became genuinely inquisitive. “Then what will you do for a living?”
I replied, “I’ll write another book. I’ll start another business. Maybe I’ll do some work in films. I’ll think of something.”
The meeting ended quickly after that because the president of the company realized that fear would not work with me and that left him with an empty gun. And many politicians use the same tactics, fear in order to create a power structure and pecking order of socialism where if an employee pays their dues, they will find a healthy wage in the second half of their lives and a great retirement. The superintendent of Lakota was essentially doing the same thing that the president of the company I was referring to had done, and that’s use the fear of tax increases to attempt to maneuver parental support of H.B. 136 to the negative. She was planting a seed that she hoped the newspapers would pick up and carry on to the greater community in an attempt to protect the education empire that she is one of the great benefactors and leaders. So she is one of those who would have fallen in line to the kind of man I was talking about as a president so that at some future time she might be in the power position. And the current superintendent is protecting that empire for those under her that are hoping they too will someday have the chance to sit in her seat.
If the goal is not to protect your job however, and to always improve year after year in a never-ending change of careers openly accepting the adventure of living then you will obtain the ability to see clearly that the world is full of possibilities if people would only have the courage to look beyond their personal comforts to how the world could be.
The empire building that goes on in the oil industry, or the education industry, or the health care industry wish with every essence of their beings to maintain the status quo so that they can aim for a retirement at some point in their futures. Their short-sighted vision is damaging to the future of the human race, and those participants are like bottle caps that hold society into a bottle so not to let out the contents to the larger world outside the bottle. If more people had read Atlas Shrugged earlier in their lives, they might have different static patterns not rooted in socialism and institutions built to protect employees, but instead be committed to the type of innovations shown in the film THRIVE, which is in essence what the novel Atlas Shrugged is all about.
H.B. 136 is one of those bills that will bring to the field of education over time new innovations, cheaper per pupil costs, and much higher education results for our children by putting the money in the hands of the parents and not the empires of education. Yes, H.B. 136 will break up the monopolies of education, but that will only be bad for the employees who will have to make the adjustments to the new way of doing things. It doesn’t mean those employees will be cast into the streets jobless. But it means that they will have to make new adjustments to their lives to stay competitive. They will only suffer if they refuse to accept the changes because if the world was allowed to progress in the manner of the film THRIVE or Atlas Shrugged, then jobs would be created for everyone, the value of money would increase and purchasing power would also go up, and the amount of money that citizens would be required to make to have a good standard of living would decrease, which is to everyone’s benefit. It is the government monopolies and financial empires who stand in the way of human existence; it’s not a lack of resources. But before society can have these wonders the general education of our people must increase 100 fold from what it currently is, which is simply a system rooted in an idea of socialism that is over 150 years old. And that is not acceptable.
We can do much, much better than that.

If you want to see who voted for the very controversial NDAA Bill I have them all listed below. Darryl Parks of 700 WLW covered a number of terrible tragedies that are happening in America right out in the open. In the following broadcast Darryl covers the sudden fix for the Cincinnati budget deficit and explains how the smoke and mirror game works. Then he talks about the epic tragedy of S.1867 NDAA. Click the video below to listen to that broadcast.
Before I get into who voted for the S. 1867: National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2012 let me just say that I have always suspected that government was crooked. Heck, I’ve even seen it up close, been a victim of a sort. I was only a victim because I trusted government once, I thought the rules actually worked, and as long as I played by them, then I’d be on the right side of things. No, that’s not the case.
Over the last year I have seen even silly laws over common sense all enticing programs like education, which affects every American, riddled with corruption. State controlled education is more concerned with spreading progressive socialism than actually producing good people. And the proof is in the way it’s funded. Three times I’ve had to help defend my community from progressive tax increases in just an 18 month period, and still the school district insists on increasing taxes on the community because the real aim is not school funding, or the maintenance of a community school, but to TAX THE RICH, the wealthy business owners of the community on a socialist quest established by the United States Department of Education. Just one year ago at this site I put out the alarm over Net Neutrality which was passed just before Christmas of 2010. We’ve also discussed in great length the TSA which was a direct panic reaction to the WAR ON TERROR and has made business travel on the airlines a miserable infringement on life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, for nobody likes to see their wife groped by a TSA agent or know that those same cheesy faced “mall cops” are looking at naked pictures of the woman who just passed through their scanners. I have seen more encroachment of government in this last year than in any year of my life……………ever! And this has been happening as the Tea Party movement has gained strength and there are more eyes than ever looking into these dirty, tyrannical deeds. The government simply does not care who sees, or what people know. They are marching openly to work against all of us with the late night passage of Senate Bill 1867: NDAA sponsored by Senator John McCain, a progressive Republican and former Presidential candidate.
Think about it. In the last election we had Progressive socialist Barack Obama who simply wants to turn America into a socialist Kenyan village. Or Progressive Republican John McCain who wants to continue some stupid all enticing plan established by a bunch of Skull and Bones rejects who obviously have worked through him over the years toward the goals established by Socialist International, only by a less direct route than Obama. The system is rigged and NONE of these politicians have any respect for the American people—do you know why dear reader? Because they EDUCATED you! They know you are stupid, that you can’t think for yourself, that you secretly want a government handout. They know you are a sucker who will stand in line where the government tells you to, and you won’t question why, because they taught you to do so from a small child. And they are so confident that you don’t have the intellectual capacity to understand what they are doing to you that they just keep marching against the American people taking away one liberty at a time over a period of decades until there is nothing left of the Constitution.
One of my frequent readers here sent me a note over the weekend that I had never seen. It was from over a year ago after one of the first failed school levies at my local school district of Lakota. The note was a comment from one of those websites that nutty, bell-bottomed, neurotic mothers frequent who want everyone in the world to pay for their kid to get a socialist education, and was accusing me of leaving some sort of sarcastic posting just a few days after the election. The anger toward me was because I played a large part in defeating that tax increase. Well, I didn’t leave any posting there, because I didn’t even know this website existed. But never-the-less, my name was mentioned below. The first comment is the posting that I am accused of leaving; the second is the response from the typical school levy advocate, and progressive voter. It is people like LAKOTAMOM5 who put in office the kind of politicians that are stealing our country from us. (By the way, I corrected her spelling and grammar errors so not to make my readers eyes bleed. Well sort of, just the serious spelling errors.

Oh and Maxwell – let me convey a lesson I, myself learned over the years.
When many run against a wall, they may see it as an ‘obstacle’ – but you are in a position to make this an opportunity. An opportunity to be a leader at your school. Take the reins and try to organize some student groups to fill in the blanks that school administration obviously can’t with the current budget limitations. Keep the innovative spirit of America alive, make a name for yourself – don’t see this as a crisis ignore the ‘doom and gloom’ others might say/post to further political agendas, look at it as opportunity for you!

I am sure this post is Rich Hoffman, and you seem proud of stealing an education from children.
Your behavior and lack of regard for children or their future is a disgrace to you and this community.
If you think that kids can get to college by placing that they went to the library with their friends on their transcript, you are demonstrating your lack of intelligence and education.
Almost every single ad, blog post and your website are riddled with grammar problems and incorrect spelling. It’s obvious you didn’t receive a good education.
Your behavior and that of the other rich, greedy men who helped you is a disgrace to this community. Stealing signs, yelling at people, confronting students in person and online and taking unapproved photos is something I have never seen.
Pat yourself on the back for a job well done. But, we will continue to expose your true agenda over the next few months to make sure you are not successful in destroying this district and this community.
There are millions of LAKOTAMOM5’s out there and they are clearly socialists. Notice how the woman calls my lack of support GREEDY, because the rich of my community don’t want to just chuck endless amounts of money at a school. That is because she is a trained socialist, and she is the first who will say that S.1867 NDAA is a good bill because it will keep our nation safe. It is because of people like LAKOTAMOM5 that politicians no longer care what the 30 to 40 percent of us in America who actually read and know what’s going on think. Because the sheer numbers of stupid people like LAKOTAMOM5 that are out there are easy to snowball, so politicians are becoming bolder and bolder in their tyranny, because they know half the nation is as stupid as LAKOTAMOM5.
Well, not everyone is willing to be stupid and play by the rules of senators like McCain and President Obama, and everyone else on Capitol Hill. In fact, with the exception of the 7 people who voted against S.1867 NDAA, every Senator on the list below should be thrown out of office immediately, for acts of tyranny against the United States Constitution. EVERY SINGLE ONE!
Totals Democrats Republicans Independents
Needed To Win
Yea: 93 (93%)
48 44 1
Nay: 7 (7%) 3 3 1
Present: 0 (0%) 0 0 0
Not Voting: 0 (0%) 0 0 0
[Sort by Name] [Sort by Party]
If you don’t want your life to be ruined by stupid people like LAKOTAMOM5 then you have to call them out in your home communities. Because it is fools like LAKOTAMOM5 who put politicians like the YEA votes above into office. And if you keep your mouth shut and let these bubble butt bitches ruin our country with their squawking shrills for “safety” then we will lose our country completely in just a few short years.
To understand the magnitude of the situation I would like to refer your attention to the link shown here:
These are not times where you can sit back and let panicky ignorance like LAKOTAMOM5 determine the fate of our country. These are times where the wise and strong among us have to act, and do so quickly, and with firm resolution that is unbendable!

One of the most disgusting sentiments of the weak parasitic big government types is how they have not only made legalized robbery fashionable in their never ending quest for more and more taxes to feed their incessant bellies, but they have taken segments of great classic literature and distorted them to suit their purposes, much like they have done with everything else. This is one of the most obvious evils that they have done with my favorite transcendentalist Henry David Thoreau and his very short work Civil Disobedience.
Civil Disobedience is only about 30 to 40 pages long. It’s really not much more than an essay and in its opening line comes the famous phase, “That government is best which governs least.” Just a few sentences later Thoreau states, “That government is best which governs not at all.” Yet, civil rights leaders and union socialists have used Thoreau as a kind of hand book to protests and how to engage in them. It was the 60’s hippies who have used the words of Thoreau to lie down in the street and fill the jails of their location with their body’s protest, in order to overwhelm the police and their human cages. The big government progressives seem to only have read the words in Civil Disobedience that pertain to slavery, and war with Mexico, which were the hot button issues in 1849, and they missed the true point of the book!
After the rash of school levy defeats in Southern Ohio after this past election I went back and read Civil Disobedience on the morning after to reign in my thoughts on the matter. The work that Thoreau intended was an anti-tax protest. Thoreau says in his short work, that to pay taxes to an unjust system is a weak acceptance of that system. And that if a citizen does not like what his government is doing, then do not pay the tax. Civil Rights activists point to Civil Disobedience and say this is where they got the idea to allow activists to be placed in jail as a kind of badge of honor. But the fools that many of them are missed the point entirely. Thoreau was put in jail himself for not paying his taxes, and he belittled the entire concept of jail as something that was beneath him in his book. It wasn’t the act of going to jail that was the aim of Civil Disobedience, but in cutting money off from an unjust, oppressive state. He wasn’t even protesting the United States; he was protesting control of the state over his individual sovereignty, and then proclaiming that a state of cowards who refused to acknowledge the individual rights of all men, including slaves, deserved not to have their coffers refilled by the tax collectors. Civil Disobedience is actually a much shorter version of the same thing explored in Atlas Shrugged, that the way to defeat a tyrannical government is to simply not endorse its existence with more resources. By giving it money, you endorse the behavior, even if it’s through your taxes.
That seems fair enough to me and makes sense. Generally, if I don’t like a restaurant, I don’t spend my money on it. If I don’t like a movie, I don’t go to the theater to pay money to see it. If I don’t like a particular brand of car I don’t buy it. And in government, if I don’t like the service or what they spend my money on, it only makes sense that I not be forced to spend money on it. Well, there is a lot in government that I’m not happy with. I do like the roads and highways, but I pay for those with my gasoline tax. I like the post office so long as a stamp can cover the costs. I like the military. I like NASA. There are probably a few other things I like………………but the rest, I don’t support. I don’t support a dictator type president. I do not support a looting congress and senate. I don’t even support a bunch of Supreme Court Justices who look at the Constitution and proclaim that within it there’s a Supremacy Clause. For my money they are a bunch of moochers and looters who do almost nothing productive. And the biggest looters of all are the education system.
I’ve made it no secret that I think our education system is pathetically under equipped to handle the problems of the modern day. The entire structure of the education beast seems motivated to social cause’s not actual individual education. I have noticed that public education from the top to the bottom is a complete failure. The kids in high school are missing all the important lessons, case in point I first heard about Thoreau in high school English and it took me nearly a decade to get the bad taste out of my mouth so I could revisit the material properly. I had the same experience with Shakespeare; teachers absolutely butchered the material so it was unattractive to an inquisitive mind. And kids seem even more out-of-touch now than they were back when I was in school. There are so many tools available to students, yet Departments of Education, school boards, labor unions and finally the teachers themselves are hanging on to an old expensive model that simply doesn’t work. Yet we are forced to continue to pay for this failure with tax levies imposed on the property owners every 6 months.
Lebanon was a local Southern Ohio district that had defeated their levy in May of 2011, but yet was passed 6 months later with less than 200 votes in the November election. The Little Miami School District finally passed their tax levy after the 9th attempt by only 70 votes out of thousands. Lakota, my district failed for the third time in 18 months, and Mt. Healthy failed for the second time in 6 months. In fact at Mt. Healthy the school put the issue on back on the ballot the very next day after the previous vote! In the election of November 2011 there were 611 public school districts in Ohio and out of those 180 had a levy on the ballot this past November. Of those 180 levies, only 87 were successful. Of the 87 that were successful, only 27 were for new funding, the rest were for renewals of existing funding. So what do these numbers tell us?
Those numbers indicate that tax payers are tired of the game, that they’ve spent all the money they care to on education, and that the government needs to loosen its control over education, and privatize it. When 10K per kid is not enough money to provide an education something is wrong and that something is that government education is more about being a big business than teaching children. Those numbers tell us that people are tired of the game, and they want something else.
Those numbers do not indicate however that the voters who said no mean to be disrespected, blown off as though there were children. Yet that is what each of those schools who failed their levies intends to do, all 103 of them. When the voters said NO at the polls they did so for the same reason that Thoreau said no to his taxes, because he didn’t like the product and he wanted a change. No means NO! But an intrusive government run institution such as public education does not take no for an answer. Instead they put the issue back on the ballot again, and again, and again until voters say yes and they do so because they, the government, believe that your money is theirs to loot and plunder for all it’s worth, and they will do so until you either run out, or die trying to keep up with the increases in taxes. Those who ask for more and more taxes to run government care not a bit about individual lives, about whether or not the tax payers suffer. They only care about the survival of the institutions they serve. They are mindless soldiers taking orders from an omnipresent greed driven government of socialist tyranny!
When I said no to further taxation I did not mean to come back to my door for more! I pay enough tax and the services I get for those taxes are not of quality, and I don’t wish to pay more to an entity that does not value individual rights, and for the same reasons as my good friend Henry David Thoreau, I view paying more taxes to be the same as committing an evil act because it feeds institutionalism that is breaking the soul of America.
The evidence comes from the academics themselves, that their system is an utter failure. They read the same book as I, yet they took from it collectively, thousands upon thousands of those academic idiots one meaning, and that is that Thoreau told them to go to jail to protest an injustice. But the jail was the byproduct of not paying taxes, which was the original message those pretentious cowards ignored. And if they missed that one very important point in one book that is only 30 pages long, who on earth are they to be expected to get anything more complicated correct! This is why I do not trust the Department of Education to instruct our children to brush their teeth, let alone guide them on a life quest that will take them through the adventure of existence. No more taxes means just that, and for every one of those 103 schools that come back again to the public for yet more taxes, they are nothing but robbers with the weapon of force, with the political machine at their backs to empower them to take and take and take until the money is taken out of your pocket and placed into theirs with a smile on your face. And you will smile and like it because they will tell you to. Oh, if you are good and kiss their ostentatious asses enough they may smile and shake your hand at a football game on Friday night! Of course you are too stupid if you believe such things to see that they are using your children as a gladiator to the same effect as Rome did, to help sell the evils of their politics with patriotic uniforms and cheering masses. And the games also sell a few soft drinks and pop corn as well as a bit of admission to help the slush funds.
It is for this reason and a host of many others that I believe that education funding is among the most evil endeavors currently entertained by government, and it needs to be eradicated in its current state and reborn as something else that actually works. And it needs to happen while there are still people capable of individual thought who can make it so. Because without action, eternal, blind compliance is the next step into an abyss America will never recover.

I made a major announcement on the Doc Thompson show just before Thanksgiving where the No Lakota Levy group is making plans to work with a local foundation to help kids in the Lakota School District with their pay-for-play fees, brought on by the school because they cannot balance their budget and is using the same old extortion methods to wring money from the residence and business owners of Liberty and West Chester Twp. The reason we are getting involved in this business of helping the students is we want to help take the edge off the kids who are being used as a tool of combat by the school system to drive up the enormous labor costs brought on by a radical union element while the school levy battles look to continue well into 2012. Listen to that announcement here:
The final straw with many of the business owners who have associated with No Lakota Levy were the threatening letters and nasty emails we received after the third levy defeat. After the election, as they did last time, radical employees of the school system who we employ to perform a community task show what they are really about. Below is one such letter from what appears to be the husband of Lindsey Schmidt the Lakota West English teacher. The man wrote the letter by signing it, and he addressed all the teachers of Lakota, so he is obviously invested and is seeking to provoke the teachers into a radical froth of anger. I show his letter the way he sent it so that you can see for yourself dear reader, what these employees are really all about and how they think.
To the teachers of Lakota,
It is obvious that, with the continued rejection of school levies in
Lakota, schools will need to make further cuts to streamline
operations. I believe it is incumbent on the teachers of this district
to be sure that the next round of cuts be initiated by the labor force.
It is time for teachers to stop giving their labor away for free.
Make gone the days of 50-70 hour work weeks. Work only to the hours
stipulated by your contract. Take the hours you used to devote to
grading papers, offering extra help, and improving your presentations
and put them toward the attention of your families. To make up for the
loss of step increases, use the extra time you have previously given to
your district for free to seek out a second job. Contract out any
remedial help to struggling students. To take pride in your work, you
must realize that your labor is valuable. Stop giving it away for free
when clearly the times of public support have changed. When the public
can no longer afford the system of the past, it is the public, not the
labor force, that will have to decide how to counterbalance the
It is because of people like this, that more and more people are deciding that they don’t want to give money to prop up the wages and benefits of this very protected class of pretentious education employees. Members of the community want to help the kids, because that’s why we send them to school in the first place, but more and more people are sick and tired of throwing money at people like the man who wrote the above letter. People like that are standing in the way real education improvement.
The No Lakota Levy group is going to help provide that bridge for those who want to help the kids without giving the money to the school itself in what is becoming known as a black hole of investment. No Lakota Levy as a group has also tried to help the administration balance their budget by telling them how to do it. The situation is simple. The superintendent should instruct the teachers union, (the LEA) that it needs to lower their labor costs by 5%. What that means is that the average salary which is currently $63K per year would need to be $59,800 per year. For teachers who make $85,000 per year would have to take a wage cut of $4,250 making their yearly wage $80,750 per year, hardly a severe hardship. If the LEA would agree to this, Lakota would balance its budget for the next 5 years. It’s pretty simple. If some of the teachers don’t want to agree to the reduction, they are free to shop themselves around the open market, but any school district they might go to will be going through the same cost adjustments that Lakota is going through so it’s a move at their own risk. They might be out of a job in those districts in a few years anyway if they refuse to bend on their pricing.
That would take care of the financial problems at Lakota and if the LEA cared one bit about the community they work in, they’d come up with the idea on their own. After all, even at $80K as opposed to $85K, they are still WAY over the average income of the tax payers who pay for the teacher salaries. But the LEA won’t make such a move, and the superintendent won’t even ask. The school board won’t even put the idea on the table, because they are all part of the same money-making system and are made up of the kind of people like William Schmidt. Mr. Schmidt is actually encouraging the teachers to do less, because the community is not willing to throw more money at them. In my opinion the cuts should be 30%. No teacher should make $80K per year and only work 9 months a year. They aren’t doing any service that is all that incredibly valuable. They are simply doing the work that lazy parents don’t want to, and they are charging a killing to do it.
Those problems are not the greater problem of the community. The public schools are part of the community, but they are not the hub of the wheel that everything else revolves. They are according to them however. The pretentious school employees behave like some only child from a wealthy family, who has no perspective on life but to scream like a baby and have the parents shut them up by giving them things to appease them temporarily. Well, finally the community is learning to stick up for itself and not allow themselves to be pushed around by these spoiled brats. And the No Lakota Levy announcement of working with the foundation is in the spirit of the community taking back control of the education system little by little from these radical union types.
Taking control of our schools again from these pretentious academics is probably the most important thing we can do during the year of 2012. Little by little, if the community begins to inject itself upon the empire of public education, the dictators who rule those scholastic hallways will retreat back into the abysses from which their minds belong. But it starts with honestly answering the questions, “Is this the best we can do in public education?” “Are we happy with an ‘excellence with distinction’ rating that means virtually nothing to the outside world except those who sell real-estate, because the kids are coming out of the meat grinder of public education far from being self-reliant, but instead seem destined to be forever dependent on government in some fashion or another, deeming the education received to be a perilous failure?” Well my answer is that I’m not happy with it. It’s too expensive, too liberal, and too pretentious. Take those elements away and the education system could operate with half the cost, and produce much higher results. Don’t believe me……..give it a try. You’ll never know unless you try.

Do you know where the word “THUG” comes from? It’s the slang term given to the Thuggee criminal fraternity of Hindu thieves dating from the 17th century and going into the early 20th century. The Thuggee were a cult of maniacs engaged in mass murder. The modus operandi was to join a caravan and become accepted as bona-fide travelers themselves. The thugs would need to delay any attack until their fellow travelers had dropped the initial wariness of the newcomers and had been lulled into a false sense of security gaining their trust. Once the travelers had allowed the Thugs to join them and disperse amongst them—a task which might sometimes, depending on the size of the target group, require accompaniment for hundreds of miles—the Thugs would wait for a suitable place and time before killing and robbing them. (Source http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thuggee )
The film Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom had some fun with the terrible culture of the Thuggee in the popular 1984 film as Matt Clark and I did also in the Sunday November 20, 2011 broadcast on his ClarkCast radio network heard on WAAM Ann Arbor. The subject was comparing the labor unions of Ohio who led a $30 million plus campaign to repeal Issue 2 in Ohio to the human sacrifice aspect of the Thuggee culture which is why I think all labor unions are no different from the Thugs of that old Hindu culture.
I know many of those union “brothers” and “sisters” in the public unions don’t appreciate being called “THUGS” but what else are you? During the whole Issue 2 campaign your side did nothing to argue in favor of the union position. Your union’s arguments relied almost exclusively on “fear” to win people over to your side, which is what thugs do, they “scare” people into action they might not otherwise take. Sure, it’s not murder what the unions participated in, but the idea that everyone else in the world should sacrifice themselves to your honor is what you portrayed, so I’ll repeat what I said to Matt in our interview. In the end after all the votes were cast it was the reign of the mindless Thuggee union lobby that turned out the most votes, not because they were more deserved, but because the votes were cast or not cast based on fear. There were a lot of people who stayed home that night and didn’t vote. Those voters of indecision were simply instigated into terror, which was the design of the Thugs.
The labor unions in the course of the Issue 2 campaign told Ohioans that the earth would open up and swallow whole women and children, that fires would erupt all over Ohio, that thieves would be breaking into our homes and there would be no police to come. We were told that schools would fail, that nurses would not be on staff to care for the sick. We were told that the public employee is similar to a divine entity and that the tax payers owed their lives to their existence and that required a tax sacrifice of not just dollars, but of blood. We were shown that any reform of any initiative connected to the public labor unions would be met with a mob of protestors chanting for more sacrifice, more money spent on their behalf. The unions convinced much of Ohio that the sky would open and the wrath of God would cast itself upon the earth and that in this battle Satan would emerge with pitchforks in hand and armies of demons would bring havoc upon the entire state in a never-ending apocalypse that would go on till the end of time.
We were told that if Issue 2 was not repealed that ambulances would sit idle as our senior citizens grabbed at their hearts in their last dying moments. Fire trucks would sit idle as forests grew across the parking lots and wrapped their roots about the tires. Police cars would sit rusting away in the sunlight of an apocalypse as the sky burned with fire and meteors from thousands of light years away pummeled Ohio into ruin.
We were told that to prevent these things from happening that the gods of public service required more blood sacrifices, more taxes, more support to be successful and that if they did not get these sacrifices then the world as we know it would come to an end with a fury unmatched since the dawn of the human race. The sacrifices required the lives not only of ourselves, but of our children and our children’s children in a never-ending ceaseless debt which would extend into the foreseeable future or as long as the sun continued to burn and that if there was anyone who questioned the validity of this sacrifice, then they would be the worst, most despicable species of human to ever walk the earth………………..they would be big, mean, greedy people who only care for themselves……………selfish beyond refute or excuse, and a menace to all humanity.
And after all that was said and done and the unions had Issue 2 repealed, the problems that brought it into existence still persist, and the fears that the unions uttered will still come to pass. Firefighters, police and teachers will still lose their jobs, because tax increases are not the solution. There cannot be anymore blood sacrifices of our hard-earned money to the cult of the Thuggee band of union workers. Sorry, we are fresh out of blood, human hearts and dollars to give you in your blood thirsty quest to dominate the world with a progressive utopia held in reverence to the great Kali!
“Kali Ma will rule the world!” But not with our money!

Doc Thompson on 700 WLW covered a topic which demonstrates the epic clash of ideas in our modern-day. There is a man who is circulating a petition to prevent Target, the department store, from opening on Thanksgiving Day; because he’s concerned that it will interfere with his Thanksgiving dinner, since he will have to head in to work early to prepare for the late night opening. My first thought about the man is that he can choose to work for Target or not to. Those are choices within his control. But he does not have a right to alter the business strategy of Target to suit his Thanksgiving dinner. It is his job to alter his schedule around his employment. For Target to open on Thanksgiving is a market driven need. Target’s existence is not employee driven its market driven. That is the key discrepancy of our modern problems. Listen to that broadcast at the video below:
This discussion about Target’s Thanksgiving plans comes as the smoke cleared from the Middletown City Council 4-3 decision to lay-off nine of their firefighters. The money just isn’t there. So the decision was to cut those jobs. What makes the decision worse and more impactful to the community of Middletown is because of Issue 2 being repealed, city council must lay-off the last hired, who also happens to be the cheapest. If Issue 2 would have held, the fire department could have let go of an employee who is just milking their way to retirement, who has obviously declined in performance over the years who might make 80K per year and must instead let go of two firefighters who only make 40K to attack the budget deficit goal. It’s nothing against the older employee, but they are simply too expensive, and if they are not performing at a 80K a year level, they should be let go so the fire department can keep the two firefighters who only make 40K. So Middletown had to cut 9 firefighters to meet their budget demands.
Of course there are more costs associated with these public employees besides just raw wages. At the Lakota School District the No Lakota Levy group figured out that the average employee at Lakota makes over $67 per hour of employment or $130,000 per year by the time all their benefits are factored in, and that is how a savings is made when lay-offs are implemented. The front end salary makes up a huge difference and when that is applied across a workforce of 20 to 200 it adds up to a very large number. Have a look at the math in calculating the public employee costs at Lakota here:
Yes the firefighters showed up like all those other crazy public employees usually do and protested the lay-offs, but they forget that they are not management. They do not have a right to manipulate the management structure. They do have a right to find another job if they don’t like the conditions of employment, but they don’t have a right to scream like a bunch of little children to keep their job, just like the protestor at Target does not have a right to dictate when Target opens for business. Of course members of management hate to do it, nobody likes to lay off a worker, and nobody likes to fire employees, but it’s a reality of any management when the budget dictates. I’ve had to do it more times than I can remember and they all hurt. But when the money isn’t there, that is the grim reality. Check out video and the story from Channel 19 here:
But Middletown isn’t the only city going through this kind of thing. Monroe City Schools is having public meetings to try to figure out what they can do to close a $2.7 million dollar deficit. Monroe is looking to their southern neighbors in Lakota and Mason and seeing the tremendous tax increase resistance going on in those districts and is trying to avoid that same controversy.
Of course the clueless public worker who believes that all the jobs in society were created for their convenience will simply propose that taxes be increased to meet the budget deficits. This is the response at Lakota where the superintendent who is supposed to manage the finances of the district simply stated after the third levy defeat, “But the teachers have already taken a pay freeze.” Well………so much for management letting the employees know how hard-nosed the superintendent will be in reducing costs. Instead of exploring possibilities of approaching the teachers union to reduce their employee costs on the district, which are currently ridiculously high the superintendent says the teachers have accepted a “wage freeze,” as if that were enough! I’ve shown you at the link above how much those Lakota employees cost the taxpayers, and the obvious next step would be to reduce those costs to balance the budget approved by the community. That would be the next step if public workers thought the way the rest of the world does. No, instead, they only know how to lay-off workers or ask for more taxes to pay for their distorted view of reality. Management is virtually non-existent in public service and that’s how everything got out-of-control in the first place to deliver us upon this current crises.
But that’s not all; Cincinnati City Council which is now largely liberal because of the protest vote against supporters of Issue 2 will have to solve a much larger budget gap than they did a year ago. Here’s how it went exactly one year ago when the previous city council attempted to solve their budget problems. Council never solved their problems from then till now. Check out this link!
Postal workers are now protesting the closing down of a sorting station in Cincinnati, because the Postal Service is also broke! They think somehow by their chanting money will magically appear in their budget. They like the Target worker in Doc Thompson’s radio broadcast think that their jobs exist for their livelihoods, not the public they are supposed to serve. It seems beyond their reasoning to conclude that higher taxes to pay for their extraordinary benefits are not an option. Somewhere at some time someone told them that government creates jobs and since they now worked for the government, then they’d be cared for all their lives. Nobody told them that the utopia would collapse on itself when the money ran out and the pension payments were due. The politicians who made those promises are most likely in the Bahamas drinking pina coladas through a straw, living out their lives of looting off the public sector in relative security and comfort. Now all the promises that were made by those thieves are expected to be kept, and that means that some people will have to lose their jobs to fulfill those promises.
I think back to all the commercials that aired during the Issue 2 campaign when it was said that if we wanted to keep our firefighters, our police and our teachers then we needed to repeal Issue 2. People like me declared such statements as an outright lie.
Now, unfortunately people are learning who was telling the truth and who wasn’t, and they’ll come to regret what they’ve done to themselves. Chants, protests, and magic wands will not place money in your pockets and solve the problems. Only good management and strategic thinking will, and those who cling to the old ways will undoubtedly perish in the aftermath.
Things are about to get very, very ugly.

Governor John Kasich came to my backyard on Monday November 7, 2011 and along with a host of many people I’d call my personal friends spoke about Issue 2 on the night before the historic election. And as I watched him, I could see in his demeanor that he “get’s it.” Have a look at that video of his speech at “The Barn of Liberty Twp.”
Regardless of how the vote for Issue 2 goes, it’s what Kasich “gets” that impressed me. I did not see a governor who really cares about his popularity. He’s already successful and it appears that he views being a governor as a step down from heights he might otherwise achieve, which is how anyone who holds public office should view their positions. When Kasich gave bonuses to his staff, and paid them well, I think he did so thinking he was still in the private sector, where he has had much success, unlike most politicians. I too have been prone to paying people well who I see pull more than their fair share of weight, so I can forgive that. Successful people who are independently minded do not think in a collective, so they don’t typically consider or care what that collective might perceive of their actions. And that is what I think leads to the perceived faults of John Kasich.
Kasich has approached the governorship of Ohio at the “SPEED OF BUSINESS” and this is a big “NO, NO” among the labor unions who have built their entire existence on dragging their feet to drive up their wages and benefits. When Kasich said, “You either get on the bus with us, or you’ll be run over,” he meant it. He wasn’t going to waste time sitting down with a bunch of selfish socialist to empower them. And regarding Issue 2, if he had sat down with the unions, the results he has today would have been far less. So I am proud of the way he and the rest of the Republicans who voted with him on Issue 2 approached the situation.
From a strategy standpoint, Issue 2 has hit hard and showed the opposition of reform that their reign of control is coming to an end. For years public unions have ruled without compassion for the taxpayer who pays them with a level of extortion born in the concept of socialism. Yes, that friendly neighborhood firefighter who has participated in collective-bargaining has participated in socialism, the same brand that bankrupted the Soviet Union, and is currently bankrupting Greece. When the commercials came out and announced that police, firefighters and teachers did not get into those professions to get “rich” they haven’t been hanging around any of those employees in private, like I have. “I’m quitting this job to go become a police officer,” I have heard from more than one employee.
“Why,” I’d ask. “You’re a good worker, and I don’t want to lose you.”
“Can you afford to pay me 50 to 60K?” the employee would ask.
“NO WAY!” I’d say.
I’ve heard teachers say the same. And I’ve heard firefighters bragging about their pay in some of the workout facilities around town. The only people who believe many of the commercials that the public unions put out are people who are out of touch and simply chose to be stupid, and unfortunately, that’s about half the population.
Kasich knew what the story was all about when he took the governorship of Ohio. He knew these sectors of the public workforce wouldn’t talk, so he just moved at the speed of business which scared the crap out of the entire union structure. Issue 2 was the broadside that many of us had wanted to inflict on union control for many years. If that union machine does not sink this time, it certainly now has holes in it as a result of the Issue 2 battle, that it wouldn’t have had if Senate Bill 5 had not been passed.
Regardless of what happens in the election, Issue 2 has forced the union machine to spend massive amounts of their personal resources, tens of millions of dollars to essentially keep what they already have, and that’s a good thing. Because as that union machine takes on water from the Issue 2 broadside, the public has seen how that union machine functions. They have now seen the lies, the manipulation, the rhetoric, the whole socialist tendency of that machine.
The trouble is that too many American’s, of which Ohio represents, have been breed in public education to think as socialists, so the public union machine is able to play on the collective tendency of this learned behavior. So this one broadside may not be enough to sink the ship of union control. That’s alright, because we have more cannon balls ready to fire again. As I watched John Kasich speak from “The Barn” while the cool autumn air drifted in over the large crowd charged with excitement in the deep woods of Liberty Twp, far away from the corrosion of progressivism, I saw a man on stage who isn’t afraid to pull the trigger again, and for that I’m grateful.
John Kasich the man I believe could care less who loves him, or hates him. He simply wants to do what’s right. He may be a little out-of-touch flying around in a private jet, where his success in the private sector carries over into his public sector behavior, but as a man, John Kasich understands what the fight is all about, and he is committed to continuing on and that is a wonderful relief.
The reforms will not stop with Issue 2. So sorry unions…………you spent all your cannon balls fighting a battle that is just round one. Because we didn’t fire all of our cannons in that broadsides. No, we have more cannon balls to fire and you will see them soon. So you better get to your battle stations, because if you are a socialist living in America, and want to bring down capitalism, which is the fuel of our economy, you designate yourself as the enemy, and deserve everything you have coming to you. And I am relieved to see on the stage of Liberty Twp a governor in John Kasich who is committed to bringing capitalism back to Ohio so business, and families can prosper the way it was always intended.
Get ready for round two!

When I was a kid, which wasn’t that long ago, but by measure of social value seems like an eternity, cartoons like the one below from Walt Disney created for me positive static patterns that even to this day fill my mind with value. The cartoon is part two of Paul Bunyan and the song was so catchy that I still find myself humming it while I work.
The metaphor of Paul Bunyan facing off against progress is a common theme of tradition versus progress. And the mood of the people who idolized Paul at the end of that competition which begins about 3 minutes into the video is also the standard reaction. You would think that the crowd would be happy to see a chain saw beat the efforts of man, but that is not the case. At heart, people appreciate the effort of muscle over the might of the machine any day.
For more about Paul Bunyan here he is on Wikipedia:
Well, times have changed since then. I can remember cartoons like that came on every Sunday evening at 7 pm. My family would order Chester’s Pizza and I’d watch the Wonderful World of Disney with my family while eating that great tasting pizza. And like Paul Bunyan I see that we are facing a new machine that may seem more useful, but lacks heart. That new machine is the education institution.
Today a company like Disney could never make a feature like Paul Bunyan. After all, it would upset the “greenie winnies,” the hippies, the soft minded progressives to see such massive deforestation. In fact, there would probably be a law suit against the producers of the cartoon itself for promoting such irresponsible global behavior in a cartoon intended for children.
The values shown in Paul Bunyan are the same basic values that America had experienced for most of its young life and are most likely the thoughts of mankind for as long as they drew breath in their lungs. But this new idea of progressivism, of mechanical progress that has infected our society has come to us through our schools, because that is after all, where we all learn some of our most basic static patterns.
For those who wonder why I spend so much time writing and why I’m not attempting to become a politician of some kind it is from this basic idea of Paul Bunyan. I do not like the invention of the chain saw if it destroys the heart of the human race. Even if it’s faster, the cost of that speed is a loss of heart that is critical to the American social fabric. Since that cartoon was made writers like Saul Alinsky have created a culture of lost, mechanical educators. Using The Delphi Technique and other consensus building strategies Alinsky has helped create a civilization of educators, and education supporters who have become extravagance blind. I have decided to spend my effort at undoing that blindness created by the work of Alinsky and many others so that people can once again see light. For me, the way to do that is through art, the door used to give mechanical progressivism to us in the first place from enemies of intuition. If you don’t believe me, look at the publication dates from the NEA’s recommended reading list for educators. You will find that they are a shallow bunch historically speaking, and have long forgotten the merits of Paul Bunyan and his great Blue Ox Babe.
And for a review of The Delphi Technique you can see what it is and how it works here:
This new age of educators who are creating the static patterns of our youth seem to have no grip on reality since they have become radicalized by that NEA reading list. Their motto for living is “have money, will spend,” which should have been the logo of the levy attempt at Lakota in the year of 2011. Of the Move Forward levy campaign’s total contributions, it has spent $26,180.50 to help them win a vote toward passage. It currently has a balance on hand of $15,862.40. Included in the expenditures were: Roger Effron and Associates ($2,500; consultant fee); U.S. Postmaster ($2,000; bulk mailing); Patriot Signage ($3,905; yard signs); and Triad Research Group Inc. ($9,750; community attitude survey).
Here are the two Consulting houses the Pro-Levy group spent $12,250.
When I first saw this I was shocked that Lakota had spent so much money on consultants. I actually find that insulting, because if you have a look at what those consultants do, they exist to pass levy attempts in various degrees. Their primary function is to advise school districts how to take more tax money from the public. To me, they are no different than the chain saw in the Paul Bunyan story. They may be efficient, but they attempt to break down society into groups of “sheeple” (sheep people) so they can be accurately controlled, and that makes them social villains.
On the No Lakota Levy we of course wanted to spend the least amount of money possible, because our goal is to not pay more money than we need to, not in taxes, and not in fighting them. So we kept our campaign spending tight. I couldn’t imagine hiring a consultant to advise us on how to properly manipulate the public. $12,250 on just consultants! That must be where the whole “Move Forward” campaign slogan came from. Most of the people I spoke with thought it was the name of a candidate and wasn’t even attached to Lakota in any way. But then again, maybe we are all like the loggers in Paul Bunyan who are thinking with common sense and this new political machine of the education institution understands how to manipulate the “sheeple” properly, enough to get their votes and extort more taxes from us, and the “Move Forward” slogan is some kind of secret language designed within the static patterns of collectivism to induce a YES vote. They should understand how to manipulate those sectors of the population; after all, they helped create them. These education fanatics don’t sit down with their families and watch The Wonderful World of Disney with their children over pizza. The kids eat in one room and watch Nickelodeon while the parents check their Facebook pages from their computers in another, and the static patterns are largely created by the schools because everyone else is too busy. It’s a different world and the consultants are targeting enough of those people to win.
I have a good idea how Lakota was able to raise so much money. At the link below is the kind of donations Lakota had last year, much of it coming from the teachers union and the PTA groups.
Without question the consultants instructed Lakota that by lowering the tax amount, cutting busing and changing the message to force the electorate to look into the future, not on any problems of the past, that their key demographic numbers were intact to win the levy. On the backs of such advice Lakota placed this levy on the ballot, and insiders have informed us that if it doesn’t pass then Lakota is talking about a February emergency levy to try again just three months from now. The demographic information provided by these consultants has given Lakota the ammunition it needs to take the money they believe they deserve by simply wearing down their opposition.
Well, unlike Paul Bunyan, I won’t be walking off into the north to hide from the effects of the machine. Eventually the machine will run out of gas, and unlike the human spirit, the machine requires a human being to fill it again. The human being can fill themselves and that is why the human being will always beat a machine in the end. Lakota has placed its trust not in human ingenuity, but in the mechanics of institutional efficiency, and ultimately that is why their eyes are so full of dollar signs, because money fuels their machine. And the goal of that machine is not to create static patterns in our youth to think like Paul Bunyan, but like a herd of sheep to be harvested for the use of that mechanical beast lost to its own humanity. The battle over the Lakota Levy is not just about raising money for a school that has spent its way into a crises due to their lack of management, but a fight between mankind and the machine of institutionalism, between Paul Bunyan and the chain saw. The consultants believe that the No Votes won’t show up and vote, so they have created a mechanical message to charge their base which is lost to the rest of us, because it’s not a message for the entire district. Just for those “sheeple” who are a part of that institutional instruction of which Saul Alinsky is the prophet.
If you want to stop the machine, you better not stay home on election night, because the machine is betting that you will out of frustration due to a perpetual tenacity that is programmed to never quit……………..until it runs out of gas (MONEY).
