What I enjoy most about playing the Star Wars: The Old Republic MMO game online is that the environment is so vibrant. There are interesting robots co-existing with many life forms freely, flying drone droids, and interstellar flight between planets that a player can embark on. The worlds and their options are full of cool new technology, and wonderful concepts that point to the kind of world we could have in America under open capitalism. As I watched the Sunday news over this past weekend displaying the pro Street Car people in Cincinnati struggling to keep that old technology of public transport viable, I couldn’t help but think how ignorant, and backward it was. Street cars were the premier form of transportation when few people had personal cars, and electricity had just been invented—at the start of the progressive era. For progressives, the Street Car is the symbol of their movement’s beginnings, and the love of that era resides exclusively in such sentimentally. Nearly at the same time that the nightly news was running the Cincinnati Street Car story CEO Jeff Bezos from Amazon.com was dropping a bomb on 60 Minutes showing the future of package delivery, a personal drone that can deliver packages directly to the doorstep of a residence with the simple click of a button.
Bezos is correct when he stated to 60 Minutes that the biggest hindrance to the new delivery service is not technology, but the government through the FFA. It will be the government which will hold back Amazon’s newest innovation, not the process of innovation itself. But this is an old story. The government wants street cars which take them back to the start of their political power—the progressive era of Teddy Roosevelt and Woodrow Wilson. Government could have never created the kind of delivery system that Jeff Bezos did. If not for Bezos the United Postal Service would still be hand sorting most of their mail the old fashion way paid for by a stamp. Because of Bezos I can order just about any book I desire ever printed in the world and have it delivered to my doorstep within two days—and that is a tremendous gift.
Most of the purchases I make regarding entertainment come from Amazon.com. I prefer to see the packages arrive on my door step as opposed to the pain in the ass of driving to get things at an actual store. I love brick and mortar stores, but when it comes to making a purchase, I rarely ever buy something from an actual store. It is purchased on Amazon.com because of the options they offer, reliability of service, and the convenience of the whole process. With this new proposal of Amazon Prime Air if I need something that Amazon.com has in their inventory, especially business related items like toner cartridges, circuit boards, or even ram memory, I could click on the Prime Air delivery method and have that item delivered to my place of business within 30 minutes and that is a huge. That is less time than it takes to drive to Staples and back if an IT type of situation arises during the business day.
Of course those in government don’t understand why anybody would want to be in such a hurry. They think people should wait a few more hours to ride a street car as opposed to driving a car, that flying by air should take two hours of prep time before the flight because of the TSA for “safety,” and that the old postage service ran by the government should continue to be subsidized when UPS and FedEx are so much better—and more reliable. Government doesn’t care about speed because their paychecks don’t depend on it. Government wages are stolen from tax payers often against their will—so there won’t be much sympathy from the FFA over Amazon’s new proposal. Look for the warning videos coming out by the government admonitions about the Amazon bots running into little children and cutting them into thousands of pieces, or drones falling out of the sky and damaging property–the federal government does not want Amazon shipping packages in such an innovative fashion. Individual employees working for government of course will, but the general philosophy of government does not.
For twenty years I have been swearing by Paul Moller’s M400 Skycar which does exactly the same thing as the Amazon Drones, except they haul people instead of packages. Moller is about 70 years ahead of himself as society has not been ready for his invention. It will take years of science fiction–video games, novels, television entertainment and an older generation of old foggies who want stupid street cars and concrete highways to die off so that inventions like personal flying transportation can mature into the main stream. CLICK TO REVIEW. That’s why I play video games instead of spending my spare time in the real world—because the real world is too slow for me. I don’t want the restrictions of what the FFA offers, or anything else coming out of government. The propellers on the Amazon drones are only as dangerous as the little toy helicopters that kids can fly inside a house and could hit a human being at full speed and have no impact on their skin. But the FFA will surely use the exposed propellers as an area of concern hindering Amazon’s implementation of their plan.
The one variable in this whole endeavor is Jeff Bezos himself. I’m a fan to say the least. He is the kind of person who carries the world on his back in the classic Atlas way. He is an innovator and a wonderful example of a generally good person. He’s charitable on his own accord, and he’s a capitalist—he’s a class act and the kind of person every American should strive to be. He is smart to not attack the government directly. He handled the 60 Minute interview wonderfully placing his ideals out to the public in the way that Walt Disney used to—with epic fashion. I enjoy 60 Minutes as a group of good reporters who do generally honest work, but I don’t normally watch them as I’m usually too busy. But after the epic Bronco game versus Kansas City, I gave it a chance because of the Bezos story, and I’m glad I did. It might have been one of the most important news broadcasts I will see in my life time because of what such a revelation means.
Folks, I have told you here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom about cures for cancer, I have told you about regenerative growth for tissue, I have told you about all 11 dimensions known to physics, and the potential of personal air transportation on a larger scale, and now here are these Amazon Drones, a reality today only hindered by government regulation. I have told you as recently as two days ago about the potential of Zero-point energy—which means free electricity for everyone—everywhere. I have told you about the benefits of Thorium power and a host of many other topics. I have also railed against public education, colleges, and politics with a fury because it is those things which stand in the way of mankind having the kind of inventions that Bezos is proposing. Government is not trying to help society, it is killing it. Bezos can’t say such things because he’s a billionaire and the IRS and many other regulatory agencies would crack down on Amazon.com faster than lightning during a summer storm if he did. The way people like Bezos keep the looters at bay is to put money in their pockets and shut them up—which is a dirty little secret nobody wants to discuss in the light of day.
Meanwhile, as I wait for all the progressive looters of government to die off, and or run out of money—I’ll just continue playing The Old Republic where I can have all those things right now in a fantasy environment online. When I play those games I don’t have to wait for the FFA to decide after 10 years of deliberation that the Bezos concept for Amazon is “safe” enough, because by then the propeller technology they are using today will be outdated in favor of something else—something even more reliable—like anti-gravity demonstrated through The Hutchinson Effect. My anger at government is that they are just too damn stupid, and too limited in their thinking. They are slow, lazy, and have the intellect of infants without the initiative to learn. They are slugs to innovation and keep the world from being what it could be as decided by the free market.
Amazon.com led by Jeff Bezos is one of the most successful companies in the world and is a creation of American ingenuity. It wasn’t invented in Russia, China, Japan, or any country in Europe. It is the by-product of innovation, capital, and will-power that rose to influence quicker than government knew how to stop it—or rob it blind. Because of who they are, and what they represent to every human being on planet earth, and their political neutrality, they have the best chance of getting their drone program through the FFA. The Amazon Drones are the gateway to the future, and it was delivered to America’s doorstep on 60 Minutes to the eyes of the entire world. Soon, with a lot of effort behind Bezos and many millions of dollars of money thrown at stuffy politicians and government looters, Bezos has the best shot at making something actually happen which is very, very exciting. But what he is doing for Amazon.com now is something that a country functioning from pure capitalism would have already had twenty years ago, and something that the FFA will surely hold up for another ten—for no other reason but their own stupidity.
Joe Rehm Pleads Guilty To Stealing No Lakota Signs: Why the 2013 election results should be “recalled”
Just a bit of a recap on the election results at Lakota. Although it is set for a recount, Butler County officials should scrutinize those ballots heavily, because it is now obvious that there were coordinated efforts to cheat on the election. That is not the utterances of a sore loser, it is a statement of observed fact. Just prior to the election I posted the pictures of a person who was caught stealing No Lakota Levy signs. YOU CAN SEE HIM HERE. Even though many people especially on the pro tax side believe this is a small issue, Michael Clark in The Cincinnati Enquirer made mention of it saying in his reporting that No Lakota Levy had noticeably less signs out than the pro side. Subconsciously, this lets readers know that No Lakota Levy is not making a strong political showing, which wasn’t the case. The direct result, the reason No Lakota Levy spent so much on signs, ads in the newspaper and etc., was to show voters that it was worth their time to vote against the levy. However, pro tax supporters because they didn’t have an answer to the No Lakota Levy message had to let voters know that it was pointless to resist, so they sought to sabotage the message. In a close election, such as the situation at Lakota where the public school won a tax increase by less than 1% it was voter turnout that made all the difference, and stealing the Lakota signs was a way of telling No Voters, to stay home.
Well, the guy in that picture was named Joe Rehm and on Wednesday November 13th, 2013 he was in Butler County court as part of the 10 AM cases. At 12:20 PM Judge McDonough finally called Joe up to find out how he’d plead to the sign theft of No Lakota Levy signs, since he was captured on film and published red-handed here on Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom. Joe didn’t look as smug as he did in the pictures showing him clearly stealing a No Lakota Levy sign while bragging about it on the phone. My friend Graeme George spoke to the court against Joe saying to the Judge, “Because of the actions of Joe and others, so many signs of ours (No Lakota Levy) were stolen that we lost the defeat of the levy.
We lost by less than 1% of the votes cast. Sign thefts made a lot more of a difference than that.
Therefore, people like Joe cost taxpayers 14 million dollars in a tax increases every year.”
Is it an inflated claim to suggest that the sign thefts cost the election of 2013? Well, we’ll never know because the thefts were just as bad this year as they have been in the past. No Lakota Levy spent thousands of dollars on signs knowing the importance of having a political presence. No Lakota Levy didn’t have the benefit of sending home pro levy material directly to parents from the school, or using teachers to twist the mind of the children into stealing signs after football games on cold Friday nights, so No Lakota Levy had to play things straight, and expensive. In court, Joe Rehm plead guilty but declared that the sign he stole wasn’t worth more than $2, but as we know he’s not the only one. This upcoming Wednesday, one week later, three juveniles caught stealing signs in a similar way will go through the same process. They’ll have to explain why they did it, and who put them up to it. Of course they too will say that the signs were only a couple of dollars each, and they didn’t think it was a big deal.
Judge McDonough because Graeme pointed out the cost to taxpayers of the levy passage, really lambasted Joe for his wrongful actions. It was a good show, but Joe was only fined $200 plus $40, and $125 court costs, for a total of $365. The judge did not impose the 60 day jail sentence. Even less will be done to the three kids when they go through the same process. They’ll be fined, the court will make its money, the election will still be won, the signs will still have been stolen, and the tax payers will still have to pay every year $14 million in new taxes to take care of a teacher’s union contract that wants even more money than they already make. No Lakota Levy will not be reimbursed for their loses which was thousands of dollars, and they are still on the hook for paying the increases in taxes.
In previous attempts the media covered these sign thefts, which at least put the actions on the news letting people know what was happening. This time, everyone stayed off the story, the credit to that goes to Randy at Lakota. The signs simply disappeared keeping the anger from the imposition in the shadows away from unmotivated voters, which helped keep the No Vote turnout, low. The tax payers were cheated in just about every aspect with the Lakota levy, Lakota used their internal resources of the school to promote the levy sending literature directly home to parents, they funneled money through their PTA groups to outspend No Lakota Levy by nearly 5 times, and they utilized a public relations employee paid for by the tax payers to keep the media focused away from sign theft, sex scandals, school shooting threats, but on the fact that Lakota hadn’t seen a tax increase since 2005………and as Sheriff Jones stated……….”it was time,” time for a tax increase as if there was an invisible watch that says such things without any rationale behind it.
For every Joe Rehm during the election there were likely dozens if not hundreds just like him who stole one sign at a time and called a teacher on the phone hoping to get a piece of ass off them for stealing a No Lakota Levy sign as a badge of honor. Joe wasn’t even from Lakota but was “otherwise” engaged in the district. One can only imagine the phone records pulled if Judge McDonough had chosen to pursue that evidence…………what Joe was saying……….”Hey baby, I stole a No Lakota Levy sign………….are you proud of me? Will you suck my c**k now…………………..please……………..I’m a nice progressive beta man who thinks you work hard 7.5 hours a day. Hey, I cleaned the passenger seat out of my stupid little hippie car and am ready to take you to Penera Bread for some overpriced soup. With your low wages of $65K per year you teachers work so hard, and it’s just unfair. Will you suck my c**k. Hey, it’s for the kids, those poor little darlings. This No Lakota Levy sign is stupid; I’m bringing it to your house to prove I did it. You’ll be so proud of me.” Looking at Joe talking on the phone and knowing he stole our signs and plead guilty to it, that’s what I think of—and his motives behind it. It pisses me off because in the end, Lakota got their tax increase, Joe got off with a slap on the hand, just like the kids on Wednesday will, the media didn’t give a damn, and the bad guys won by exploiting children, manipulating the public, and cheating.
With all that said, I would care to guess that the teacher’s union stuffed at least 500 votes that would probably be cast away as illegal ballots if anyone cared to pursue justice in a close election. But they won’t, because ultimately most people are on the phone with some special someone who works for the Lakota school system and they are asking that someone for the same kind of favor I imagine Joe was asking for when he stole the No Lakota Levy sign. Everyone wants a favor, but nobody stands for what’s right at any level—which is why children are exploited, and tax payers are on the hook for $14 MILLION dollars a year every year likely forever.
Hope the sucking and whatever was worth it.
Another lap dog of the Lakota school system during the election of 2013 was Michael Clark of the Cincinnati Enquirer whose interview with Joan Powell prior to the levy vote was so close to pornographic that it should have been rated XXX. CLICK HERE TO SEE IT. Those two should have at least gotten a room and not done their dirty deeds under the roof of a tax payer building. By definition, pornography in this case is: the depiction of acts in a sensational manner so as to arouse a quick intense emotional reaction. We already knew what kind of guy Clark was. His wife is employed by public schools, so all his articles have a pro-government school slant. He did give No Lakota Levy a little coverage, just to keep the story line compelling, but nothing that would cause any danger. No Lakota Levy spent thousands of dollars on Enquirer ads, and Clark did seek out opposing opinions like the one below where he did confirm what I had said on election night, that many NO Voters did not show up at the election—because they took it for granted. Here is a quote from Clark’s recent article on the matter:
Bob Hutsenpiller, a local business exec and a leader of the No Lakota tax campaign, also cited the sparse ballot:
“That was part of Lakota’s strategy, with not a lot of things for (voters) to vote on. Sorry to say, but I have heard it from many seniors already who say ‘I should have gotten more involved.’”
Ron Lumpkins, a longtime resident of Liberty Township whose children graduated from Lakota decades ago, said the few local issues and races weren’t compelling enough to get him to vote. “When you get older and your kids have graduated years ago, you aren’t that involved with the schools,” he said.
Anti-tax sentiments were also active among some school parents.
“We’re already taxed to death so I wasn’t for it,” said Robby Smith of West Chester Township, who said he did not cast a ballot Tuesday.
Those guys were not alone, it appears that there were many anti-tax people who simply thought that the No Lakota Guys had this election in the bag, and they did not show up to vote. They took the effort against the levy for granted, and as Hutsenpiller said, it was part of the Lakota strategy……….or as Joan Powell uttered………“It is a sum of all the efforts from this campaign and all the work done on previous attempts that set the stage. The community campaign volunteers did a great job of contacting individual voters through phone calls and person-to-person canvassing. That personal contact was essential.” Part of that “setting the stage” was to force No Lakota Levy to prove they weren’t a bunch of “meanies” putting them on the defensive with insane accusations and boycott threats. This kept No Lakota Levy from tapping into the “anger vote” which played into the Pro Levy Lakota strategy, and kept turnout low from the anti-tax faction. Lakota also sought to win over all members of the media………..particularly 700 WLW which No Lakota Levy had a forum in the previous three elections. Through Willies in West Chester and Sheriff Jones, Lakota attacked that format not so they could communicate why Lakota schools needed a tax increase, but to keep No Lakota Levy from having a platform to tell the truth. Lakota sought to keep the truth away from people. They certainly sought to control the information which reporters like Clark willingly obliged.
After the election the pro tax people were beating on their chests proclaiming that the “majority had spoken.” I covered this in another article. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. If Lakota really wanted to know what the majority thought, they’d support another vote giving people like Robby Smith, and Ron Lumpkins another shot to defend themselves from Lakota. Statistically, the election was that close and if anybody really cared, all the votes would be heavily scrutinized which would close the gap even further. The election is a statistical tie as it stands today, and another election would be justified if the “will of the majority” were really desired……….but its not. Lakota doesn’t care what the majority wants, they simply want a higher tax, and they will do anything and destroy anybody to get it. That’s all they stand for and ultimately what they are teaching children at Lakota.
It is hilarious that so many of these reporters believe they are fighting a moral crusade to pass a higher tax just because people like Joan Powell—who is a realtor, wants to use Lakota schools to sell easy homes to a bunch of panicky 30 something parents with school age children. The levy for people like her is to make money for her profession, and most of the staunchest levy supporters have their hands in real estate from the residential side—because it helps fill their pockets with money. The crimes against children are obvious yet people like Clark continue to support public education because ultimately he benefits from it. That’s OK; time will confirm all these accusations. The writing is on the wall, and history will prove what I’m saying to be right. Many people like Robby Smith and Ron Lumkin are not quite yet ready to admit to themselves what a corrosive force public education is in our communities so they don’t feel passionate enough about it to vote during off-season elections. They regret it now, but in the future they will act on their impulse much sooner, because it didn’t take long for the Lakota thugs to show their true colors. No Lakota Levy warned everyone, the media sought to suppress the message, but the information was on websites free to everyone. And that information will be true tomorrow as it was yesterday, and we will be there for the next time………….because you better believe it…………..there will be a next time.
Meanwhile, now that the levy is over, maybe Lakota will consider raising more money for the future by selling the pornography between Joan Powell and Michael Clark. Then again, after looking at the pictures of Joan during the levy party at BW3’s……….maybe not.
It was good to hear Darryl Parks maintain his position on school levies, and specifically, the Lakota school levy. I have purposely avoided doing talk radio during this latest campaign primarily because the levy fighting going into the future needs to grow and more people must to be involved—and for some talk radio can be an intimidating forum to utilize. Aside from that, there is already a large collection of talk radio interviews that have been done in the past, which are still relevant online. More broadcasts talking about the same topics tend to become counterproductive, so they were avoided strategically. Also involved was the issue that No Lakota Levy wished to maintain their message of fiscal responsibility within the Lakota district where I have evolved into questioning the basic premise of public education and believe that it should be abandoned all together in its current form. Darryl’s position is closer to the No Lakota Levy view, where mine isn’t something that many people are ready to hear, because the answer requires difficult choices—and admissions. Yet Darryl is well aware what is driving the Lakota levy and he talked about it on his Saturday, November 2nd show which can be heard below. The Lakota levy is about wealth redistribution, it is a socialist concept created by progressives, and it’s unconstitutional. It is all about taking from the rich and giving to the poor which is the ugly underbelly of all school levies—but one that gets avoided because of the implications pointing to communist roots. Nobody wants to admit that their school where their children are attending is a socialist concept. Nobody wants to face that the educations they received when they were young was a communist creation, but if they think hard enough, the admission becomes easier once they understand the meanings. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. Darryl smartly stays off that topic, but discusses the result—the cost of the Lakota levy for people with $300K to $400K homes will be an additional $600.00 to $800.00 a year and that will likely mean no summer vacations, no big purchases of new furniture, televisions, or even air travel to an overseas destination. If the Lakota levy were to pass, the people with the most money would have to make sacrifices that those without so much money would otherwise have to make.
Most of the supporters of the Lakota levy are either people who have ridden the coat-tails of those who do have money yet don’t understand the real value—so they are quick to give it away, or they are simply new parents who want what’s best for their children and they believe that public education complete with busing services is the best way to give it to them. These types make up the vast majority of the levy supporters, and they believe that a “rich man” or a well to do household can afford an extra $800 dollars in taxes a year because they have a $400,000 house. They believe that if a business can afford to carry payroll, or the owners have a net worth of over a million dollars that they are required to pay more in taxes so that the child of a family not so fortunate can have an education. Well—anybody who thinks that way is wrong. That belief is a communist sentiment brought to America through the labor union movement, and it is at the heart of every single school levy.
Just before the Lakota levy vote, superintendent Mantia sent out the following letter to business owners all across West Chester and Liberty Twp. She likely broke the law sending it because it is campaign literature for levy passage created during her contract hours of work which is technically against Ohio Revised Code 3315.07, which states in part “no board of education shall use public funds to support or oppose the passage of a school levy or bond issue or to compensate any school district employee for time spent on any activity intended to influence the outcome of a school levy or bond issue.” But whose going to prosecute her………..Sheriff Jones? He has a deal with Mantia if the levy passes, so he’ll gladly look the other way and so will all the state prosecutors. The letter from Mantia is a thinly disguised reminder that the business community must pay their “fair share” as determined by the needs of the many. Mantia means to strong-arm the business community into supporting higher taxes so to avoid the public disgrace of refusing. I know quite a few business owners in and around Lakota and not a single one of them believe the arguments Mantia presented on the document. They know that less than 5% of the proposed levy revenue is going to the kind of things she addressed. The rest of the money is going to Lakota employee raises. Yet they have felt compelled in the past to just go along to get along. If the school raised taxes, they’d just raise their prices of service. This worked for decades until the present time when consumers have proven that they have had enough, and won’t purchase items at a higher price. So businesses are no longer willing to pass off those higher costs as they are between a rock and a hard place. If they chose not to support a levy they get called names like selfish, mean-spirited, and have the PTA organizations threaten boycotts against their businesses, such as what happened after the last election. CLICK HERE FOR REVIEW. If they pass the tax increase off onto their customers, they will lose business.
The levy advocates have a bottomless pit of need and they believe that because a homeowner owns a Mercedes, spends $800 on a meal for business clients, and has a home valued over $500K that they have an obligation toward higher taxes—and they are dead wrong. Because the taxes never stop, one of those wealthy tax payers today might pay taxes at $600 to $800 more a year every four years for the life of their businesses and will find that they will either have to move to a district with less taxes, or let the value of their assets decrease so that there will be nothing left once their children inherit their lifetime of hard work. Lakota business owners and residents have been relatively smart in voting down continued school levies—not passing one since 2005. West Chester and Liberty Township are thriving economic communities where other places like Fairfield, Finneytown, and Evendale are struggling because they are yesterday’s has-beens. They said yes to similar letters from school superintendents in the past and it cost them their livelihoods.
Butler County in general was built on a foundation of lower taxes. Why does anybody believe that Bass Pro Shops is leaving Forest Park and moving to West Chester—or here is a better question—why is the economy at Forest Park so bad that the mall there is a virtual ghost town? One, it is taxes, two it is too much government housing and a demographic population that lives off government money. The people of Forest Park have less value for money because the government sends them a check in the mail. Therefore, they do not enjoy the kind of things that Forest Fair Mall tried to offer them over the years as far as retail shopping. So companies moved out or went out of business. They went to West Chester where the taxes are less, and people appreciate nice things. West Chester is still driven by capitalism where Forest Park is drowning in socialism—a string of unfortunate and unintended consequences. I know this first hand, about twenty years ago I was a personal driver for a Bengal player. It was my job to drive him around and make sure he got home safely while he jumped from bar to bar. If people got too close, it was my job to make sure he was covered. I’d drive this guy all over the city to every hot night spot in town. Since I didn’t drink or do drugs, I was a good candidate for this kind of thing and wasn’t tempted to play along. At the end of the day, around 4 AM I’d take him home to his wife. They lived in a nice part of town full of promise. They lived in Forest Park, and thought of it as a land of luxury. Today, that same home is surrounded by Section 8 housing and a welfare demographic that has very few people officially employed. That is why Forest Fair Mall has failed, and the former Bengal player is no longer married to that woman. Bad investments lead to bad lifestyles. Bad lifestyles lead to failed businesses. Failed businesses lead to empty malls like the one at Forest Fair Mall.
Every resident in the Lakota school district has an obligation to defend their homes and property from the clutches of big government spenders like superintendent Mantia. Failure to say no to them will result in the same kind of declining community as seen in present day Forest Park, Fairfield and many other places where high taxes and demographic changes have destroyed their communities. In Lakota, it is the targets of Mantia’s letter that make the community such a nice place, the restaurant owners, the developers, and the financiers. If they get frustrated with the tax rates and pick up to move, they will leave behind in Lakota a community with crushing tax rates yet no businesses to pay them, because nobody takes the risk of owning something without expected to earn money from it. The value of any money earned goes down with every tax increase. Communists, or those trained in the ways of communism have no value for money—they find themselves seeking government employment because that is the only place they can earn a decent living thinking the way they do. Superintendent Mantia does not understand business. She thinks because she gets a hand shake and a bit of idle chatter at a charity event from many of the people she sent that letter to, she is on good terms with them. But she’s not. What she gets is appeasement the way a person who gets pulled over by a cop tries to appease the cop so that they don’t end up in jail. Business owners want to keep the peace and the looters out of their pockets. Taxes like the one proposed for this November levy permanently change wealth, and gives business owners less money to invest in the community, and that is not a good thing.
The communists who devised this ridiculous plan knew what they were doing. They hated the rich, and sought to level the playing field in every endeavor. Most levy supporters when asked enough question will reflect the communist roots of their belief when they state that everyone could afford to pay just a bit more for the good of the children. Many of them will only pay $30 dollars more a month, and since they have kids in the school, it’s no big deal to them. It’s cheaper than driving their children to school if they are lucky enough to get busing back. They may cut one trip out to eat with their family a month, and pay their higher tax without further complaint. But for business owners with millions of dollars in assessed property value, they will be taxed much higher, and the levy supporters with much less personal value will directly benefit. It’s called confiscation of wealth by the needy majority, and it is a communist concept—and a sickening enterprise.
The school levy at Lakota and every other school district is simply a redistribution of wealth scam that uses children to fulfill a political agenda that as Darryl Parks stated, is unconstitutional. For the same reasons that superintendents like Lakota’s Mantia ignore Ohio Revised Code 3315.07, authorities under state control ignore the unconstitutional nature of the school levy system because they have allowed the monopoly of public education to dominate the political arena with a communist sentiment that belongs in Kazakhstan, not West Chester, Ohio. There is nothing good that comes out of tax increases, but everything bad—an element missing from Mantia’s letter. She likely has no idea what the people who she sent that letter to really think of her, and probably thinks they believe what she is saying as much as she does. But the difference between her and them is that they actually produce things, while she is just another government parasite, a worker living off the tax payers and again advocating more taxes so her ilk can sustain their unsustainable wages for a few more years. If there is no other reason to vote against a school levy anywhere in Ohio, it is because the concept is a flawed one that goes against everything America is supposed to stand for—capitalism. School levies are wealth redistribution attempts by progressive minds for aims that are not beneficial to thriving economies. And every one of them should be voted down because they won’t end in 2013. They will continue well into the future until there is no money left to loot and people finally say no because they have nothing left to give. For the sake of Lakota, and the community that feeds it, the NO VOTES need to come now, while there is still money being produced in an economy that is the envy of Ohio. Voting NO on the Lakota levy goes a long way to keeping that status.
Since 2010 I have given many reasons why a voter should turn away the Lakota levy of 2013 with a NO VOTE. It should be as obvious as rain during a hurricane, higher taxes do not make a better school district, help with property values, or even make children smarter. All those claims are manipulative statements designed to trick voters into imposing higher taxes on themselves with the same audacity that it is generally reported taxes will only be $16 dollars a month. Most people who don’t pay close attention will believe that the cost is small, because they will miss that the media generally only reports the lazy $100,000 of property assessment, but the reality is in the Lakota district almost nobody has a home valued that low. Generally, the cost of the Lakota tax increase will be about $30 dollars a month adding up to around $360.00 per year, which is a sizable amount of money considering the taxes are already high.
Most people who read here every day are already Voting NO. But to make it easier to spread the message, here is the NO LAKOTA LEVY ad which appeared in the Cincinnati Enquirer with a full-page placement, which was obviously extremely expensive. It contains most of the information of why voters should VOTE NO on the Lakota levy. So send it around to your friends, family and social networks to ensure that they show up and vote against the levy to protect their homes from the villainy of Lakota’s terrible management.
I can think of a lot of things my $30 dollars a month will go to besides another tax. Likely for me, it will be consumed in the increases I will see resulting in Obamacare. But my cable bill, various subscriptions, and even fuel costs could all use that $30. I don’t want to throw away nearly $400 more a year on a stupid teacher’s union. For $400 dollars a year I could buy my children Season Passes to Kings Island for Christmas, or a flat screen television to watch football games in my garage. I could book air travel to Florida, or pay for my family to attend Disney World each year. There are a lot of things that my money could be spent on other than a tax increase for the Lakota levy.
Even for people who also read here who aren’t in Lakota, pass this flyer around anyway. There are a lot of school levies on the ballot and pretty much all of them are driven by the same insanity. The cause of the tax increase is the collective bargaining agreements imposed upon tax payers by the teachers unions, and what they expect in wages and benefits is simply disgusting. Even worse, they hide their mechanisms behind the next generation of youth, and they have to be stopped. It’s currently ridiculous and getting worse.
As for the work done by No Lakota Levy, I am very proud of what they have accomplished this time around. The organization has grown into a legitimate political force of some wonderful minds who are defending the way of life we love in West Chester and Liberty Township from truly corrosive parasites, and every homeowner and business investor should thank God that they see those familiar signs on the side of the road standing against the Lakota Levy. Back in the winter of 2012 there were discussions about how much I hated the people who ran the Lakota administration and I wanted to do my own thing letting new faces step in and freshen up No Lakota Levy. I am very happy to see the results. More people have participated this time around, and there has been some fantastic work done. The website is very good, the ads, the media comments, the amount of signs on the streets has been top-notch, and this campaign was the best one yet as far as logistics. The tireless efforts of the usual cast of characters are evident, and it has been good to see. Their work has been noticed, and the message has gotten out.
But reading a message and acting on it are different things. Voters still must show up in spite of what they might hear about a blow-out at the polls against Lakota. As an organization, Lakota is a progressive institution that will do anything to win, so those considerations must be taken into account. They have spent over $100,000 dollars promoting this levy and two years of preparation to reload after the last three defeats and they are desperate. Padded ballot boxes are not out of the question just as the planted letter from last week was designed to bring fear to voters hoping to disguise the facts shown in the No Lakota Levy ad above. They will stop at nothing to win, and if they lose this time, they will try again, and again, and again until they get their money, because like the mob, they are about coercion, not rationality, and the only thing there is to really stop them is No Lakota Levy.
So send this article to a family member or friend so that they will have the facts on Election Day, and be sure to encourage them to vote, because in an election, every vote matters, and nothing should be taken for granted.
Over the weekend Lakota staff, school board members, and the coerced use of many dozens of children confiscated one of the buildings that tax payers own to hold a rally for the upcoming levy vote. Of course the event received excellent media coverage as local press depends heavily on sports programs and charity stories coming out of public education for content. However, they always ignore the faults of such institutions, which was clear in the Channel 9 coverage shown below. For the online edition, the coverage was pretty even, but for the video footage the slant was definitely in favor of the pro levy factions, ignoring many of the fallacies which have caused the desire for levy approval.
One such story that has been ignored during the entire levy campaign by virtually everyone is the notion that Lakota gave $20,000 to McKibben Demographics http://www.mckibbendemographics.com/aboutus.html to provide a detailed enrollment report as recently as February of 2013. It is a very detailed report full of the kind of information that led to the video I produced called A Whip Trick To Save Lakota. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW. The McKibben Report showed that Lakota was about to experience severe declines in enrollment leading to massive layoffs at the public school, which was information they did not want to hear—so they ignored it.
Last fall (Oct, 2012) Lakota spent $19,800 to Sun Associates http://www.sun-associates.com/staff.html to provide them the plan they are using as a basis for Lakota’s technology expansion behind the levy campaign. The Sun Associates plan has a lot of commentary based on surveys taken from parents, teachers, and students. A lot of the report is academic nonsense that is meant to be viewed with progressive/Democratic eyes. Sun Associates are a Massachusetts group in the heart of progressive territory—New England. Other than Lakota (which they cite on their web page) all the rest of their studies have been in Massachusetts and New York—hardly bastions of conservativism—not in the way that Butler County is. Essentially, Lakota spent almost $40K to get outside advice, and one of those sources is a progressive “Think Tank” not reflective of the values in Butler County or the residents of Lakota. The school chose to believe what they wanted to justify the levy attempt, and the media has given them a free pass choosing to do soft stories about the impact of the lack of money, and not asking the crucial question as to why. The school recklessly spent money yet again to get two reports done, but only picked one that they could use to justify a tax increase.
This isn’t new information, and only gets reported on blog sites like this one. It is one more example of all the reasons more funding should be denied to Lakota. Tax increases produce money that does not go children, it gets wasted on reports like the one from Sun Associates to use as clubs against a community that doesn’t have the same values, or standards as the region the report was conducted. The cost of those two reports is roughly the entry salary of a typical teacher at Lakota (under 5 years) and if Lakota was so worried about their employees……….or the children, they would have saved the money for the report to contribute to their payroll needs. But they didn’t. Instead, they held a rally at tax payer expense—because it was our building, and sent out press releases of a feel good story to the local press, which returned the favor and covered it as all parties ignored the root of the problem, reckless spending on stupid things like the Sun Associations report.
The crowd in the Channel 9 report was less than in years past, but it still indicates that there will be a number of really stupid people who will vote for the Lakota levy. They are stupid because the school is wasting money on progressive causes that work against conservative educations and those voters are willing to trade away the values, beliefs, and futures of their children just so the parents aren’t inconvenienced with having to drive their children to school. By voting YES they are giving Lakota a free pass to continued wasteful spending, to openly deceive the public, and perpetuate a broken management system driven by unionized collective bargaining agreements—and that is just stupid.
This story is too complicated for most 3 minute news stories or 250 word newspaper articles—so they don’t cover all those hard aspects which are at the heart of the levy vote in November. Instead it is easier to just do a story on how parents want their busing back, and that by voting in favor of more wasteful spending, somehow the children will benefit. The hard story is that the children will benefit because they will no longer be used as extortion mechanisms of coercion against a cash-strapped public. For those stories, I will continue to cover them here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom, because apparently nobody else will.
The responsible thing to do at Lakota is to vote NO on the Lakota levy, because anything else is simply stupid, irresponsible, and equivalent to throwing good money into a black hole from which it will never return. CLICK HERE FOR MORE.
On more than a few occasions during the last week, prior to the November elections, readers, friends and otherwise have expressed to me their concern that things would ever get better—that our current American society seems destined to slide into a communist rot driven by the old hippies of the “Flower Child” generation. I can understand the concern as even forty and fifty-year-olds that didn’t come of age during the 60s but was still infected by communism, such as the current Obama administration, think like they do. But not everyone does. The trouble makers are easy to spot, they are usually academics raised on Marxism, socialism and progressive causes for the benefits of global communism. The closer to modern education they are, the worse they are, and more statist their beliefs. But along those same demographic age groups a ray of hope is emerging that will not tolerate the communist utopia that the modern political left dreams of—and the resistance won’t be pretty.
Many believe that the modern Tea Party was inspired by the Republican Party through the likes of Karl Rove to unify the senior citizens in their party. Because of that and other reasons many Tea Party types are questioning whether the Tea Party should even keep such a name, because a whole new generation of rebel rousers, and freedom lovers is emerging that doesn’t feel driven by reverence for the American Revolution. Instead, they were raised on Rambo movies, Asteroids video games, rock and roll, and large doses of capitalism provided by the Ronald Reagan presidency. I have said often that many of the problems of the early 2000s are due to the failed statist policies of the “Flower Children.” They are currently in charge right now in politics, business, entertainment, and education. But behind them on the age bracket are the kind of people who listened with great reverence to the music of Metallica, Kiss, Judas Priest and many other heavy metal bands. The “Flower Children” had Bob Dylan, the Beatles and other pacifists. The 80s rebel rousers had songs like this one shown below by Metallica called “Don’t Tread On Me.” Listen to the words carefully and watch the video. It contains within it the future of America.
I’ve been a body-guard, a repo man, and a bouncer at times and before or after conflicts I would turn on this song by Metallica to charge myself up. Even now, twenty years later, the song still has reverence for me, it was written well before there was a Tea Party or even a Barack Obama. Back then, freedom was still an illusion and the national debt was manageable—yet Metallica saw the writing on the wall like the rest of the people from my generation do—and they are quite pissed off about it. Metallica songs like this one are representative to how we feel, so any kind of communist utopia that Obama and the wealthy power-hungry billionaires like George Soros intend, will not make any real traction. Instead, it will push my generation into open revolution as they will not yield to statism—once they finally admit to themselves that government is a problem.
I have a long time running joke in my family that my favorite people are those under the age of 12 and over the age of 65, everyone else in between is broken and not worth my time. The reason is that the ages stated that I enjoy are human beings not functioning from a sexual nature. Once the pituitary kicks in and young people become sexually interested, they go into a cloud of misdirected deceit for the next 50 years of their life, until their sexual nature kicks off again and they can resume logical thinking as senior citizens. Most of the people who listen to Metallica along with me are from this broken age where their primary purpose is still power for the sake of sexual gratification—the ability to plant a seed or receive a seed which is the mating custom of human beings. Most of our economy and our entire political structure is built around this ridiculous notion. But once these people move into their senior citizen status, they will still have the music and philosophy of their youth, but not the sexual misconduct to motive their thoughts, much the way today’s communists and Marxists have risen to dominance no longer distracted by drugs and sexual orgies. When the Metallica generation hits this period, there will not be unlimited compliance to statist policies. There will be open rebellion, and the old hippies will have died off leaving this new rebellion to run everything—and their mode of philosophy will be capitalism—the kind they grew up with during the years of Ronald Reagan.
So fret not all who read this. The statism of today will not last. There isn’t money to support communism in America and there is not a will by the public to embrace it. They’ve tasted freedom even if for a brief moment during a Metallica concert, or in a car driving down the highway at over 100 miles per hour with open containers of beer flowing freely between the occupants. Freedom is something people are waiting for—because it is reflected in their art—the songs that are listed on their iPods—songs like Metallica’s “Don’t Tread On Me.”
I can speak for myself, that song reflects my thoughts. I will not yield to communism, statism, socialism, or anything the Obama administration creates. They do not represent me and I refuse their system of beliefs. I want nothing to do with Obama’s view of America, a socialist paradise born in the laboratory of college campuses in love with European hierarchy. And the Tea Party is not so much about today’s senior citizens getting politically active. It’s about them waking up and smelling the coffee and wanting to fix things because sexuality no longer clouds their minds as the logic of youth has returned to their creative minds. At the roots of the Tea Party movement is a much harder core belief system that is angry and ready to direct their thoughts, and those intentions will not move toward communism, but away from it. An entire generation grew up on that song, and deep in their hearts they believe it.
There were not politicians like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz even a decade ago. They are a new emergence and are of the same age as I am–products of the 1980s. It would not surprise me if Senator Ted Cruz does not listen to Metallica on his iPod as he travels through the airport. I would not be surprised if Rand Paul doesn’t still have the Metallica CD in his personal music library. I would not be surprised to learn that they personally liked the song, “Don’t Tread On Me.” The good news is that there are more of these types of people moving into political positions. I can name three who are potentially going to be West Chester Trustees. They could down 10 beers at Jags, put their fist through a window, and then balance a check book all within an hour of each other, and they are not that far off the kind of thinking that I have. They are not statists, but good people who work hard, play hard, and don’t bow to anybody—and they are coming of age.
What’s at stake for the statists is the fantasy of compliance. They will have their victories in this time and place because what we are seeing are the fantasies of the “Flower Children”—a world of forced peace holding hands under the power of government imposition by the leadership of the political left. But tomorrow, they will see their influence erode away into silliness. If and when the bullets start flying, people like me won’t be calling 911. I’ll shoot back—with a much bigger gun, and I’ll crank up “Don’t Tread On Me” while doing it. But compliance to statism is not an option. It’s not going to happen under any conditions.
So the answer to the question of whether or not things get better—it eventually will. It will get worse because the left is in charge, and they will fall flat on their face with intrusive social policies, bankruptcy, and a weakened society that is tired of a leftist flat line human existence. Once the left fails completely—and they are currently–my generation will be there with Metallica blowing wind into our sails, and we are the calm generation. The generation that comes after us is even less interested in communism, socialism, social sharing, and all the “Flower Child” passivity of the 60s. They are playing Grand Theft Auto and first person shooters till the small hours of the morning and listening to music that is even angrier than Metallica. So as you listen to the song “Don’t Tread On Me” by Metallica think of the world that is coming, not the one that’s currently here. As a friend of mine asked me late last week, “is there hope.” And, “what should be the new name of the Tea Party?” The answer to both is, yes there is hope, defiance is alive in the hearts of millions and they are very close to going over the edge presently. For me, I would call this new rebellion not after the patriots of yesteryear, but after the mythology of the present—I would say that what is happening is part of the Red Pill Rebellion. Over two years ago I spoke about the red pill versus the blue pill as articulated by the film, The Matrix. Our modern age is all about waking up to the truth that has always been there, yet was covered up by an entire society addicted to their blue pills of illusion. More and more people are starting to take the red pill of truth, and they aren’t happy to see what has happened to the world while they slept. CLICK HERE TO REVIEW.
I will enjoy tearing apart the world that the “Flower Children” made for us, the idiots who supported school levies, the advocates of The Great Society, and the nut jobs who brought America socialism through Social Security. The world of Barack Obama deserves to perish in its thinly disguised exploitation of the human race in the name of fairness for the ultimate aim of government expansion and control over every human being. I will laugh as each of their statist policies perishes, and I will laugh with each tear they shed in the coming years. I despise them, and will enjoy watching the framework of their social destruction dismantle under their own power, and when they turn to others to rob them of resources to maintain their illusion, I will proclaim with any force necessary, “DON’T TREAD ON ME.” And I will enjoy it thoroughly.
Yes, there is hope, and I would call it The Red Pill Rebellion, and it is growing in force, and effectiveness, partly by default, and partly by momentum. 20 years ago I predicted this age that we are currently in, and it occurred right on time, just as I always said it would. With the same boldness, I predict the age of The Red Pill Rebellion, and the result of that time is a nightmare to the statists. Trust me…………….
Obamacare is the most obvious encroachment of socialism into the lives of every American ever attempted. It is an unequivocal intrusion of socialism against freedom. It is an attack against the American Constitution by lawyer types looking to build their own legacy defiling the first attempt in human history at self-rule and individual freedom. Most of the time I cover topics based on my own viewpoints. However, occasionally I read something that drills home a subject in a way that I admire, and one such articulation of obscure analysis on the subject of Obamacare can be seen below—as interpreted by a constitutional lawyer. He has read the entire bill, and provides a review based on those facts. I have not read the entire bill, and I never will. Before I follow that law….Obamacare…….I will break the law before I waste my life reading that crap. But this guy has, and everyone should read his opinion. So I present it to you as it was sent to me. And I suggest that you send it dear reader to a friend or family member who needs to hear it.
A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed health
care bill. Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish.
The Truth About the Health Care Bills
Michael Connelly, Ret.
Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House
Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied
it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional
law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were
being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse
than what I had heard or expected.
To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its
implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media
are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care,
particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are
involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion
services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of
the medical profession.
The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of
business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions
about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal
bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals.
Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of
necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the
However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In
fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of
providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient
cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of
government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this
law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of
the United States will effectively have been destroyed.
The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power
between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S.
Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama
Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives
of the American people, and the businesses they own.
The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate
in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text
of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members
of Congress to regulate health care.
This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the
Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct
violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the
Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the
information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is
a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also
forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into
oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.
If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private
insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices
Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you.
It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid
application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment . However ,
that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows
you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely
depriving someone of property without the due process of law.
So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so
much, out of the original ten in the Bill of Rights ,that are effectively
nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.
The 9th Amendment that provides : The enumeration in the Constitution,
of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others
retained by the people;
The 10th Amendment states : The powers not delegated to the United
States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are
preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the
provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people
nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many
areas that once were theirs to control.
I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you
get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power
and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the
members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation
to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not
be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without
feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted
for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me
For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they
consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights . There you
can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

I previously wrote about Sheriff Jones and his support of the Lakota school levy of 2013. But it is important to understand the context of the Letter to the Editor he submitted to Today’s Pulse on Sunday, October 20, 2013. In it Jones addressed his concern for increased school security that many government workers such as cops and teachers have sought to exploit in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting. Some of those exploitations are genuine concern, but most are parasitic attempts to pad the yearly budget approvals of their positions. In Jones’ case if the Lakota levy is passed, the school has designated that $350,000 per year will go to security which helps employ more police officers, so as Sheriff of Butler County, and opponent of Senate Bill 5 and a major union supporter, Jones is looking out for his union brothers in law enforcement by aligning them with his friends in education. Have a look at the Jones letter in favor of the Lakota levy.
Lakota is Taking security Seriously
School levies are never an easy topic to talk about and, as sheriff, it is not really part o my duties to actually deal with them. But there is on levy coming up on the November ballot that I am willing to talk about – the Lakota School District levy. Most of the funds from the proposed levy will go for things that it seems all schools have to contend with — like academic programs, technology hardware and software etc. That’s all fine and good, but this levy also goes further, and actually sets aside funds for a topic that is of much greater concern to me – security!
Our nation has seen several tragic in-school shootings over the last few years. I have been very vocal in expressing my personal thoughts on how to make our schools safer by either putting more deputies/officers into the schools, or arming specially trained school personnel. There are those who say that costs too much money, or is going too far in wanting to arm civilians. I have proposed several other options, but a lot of school districts seem to have failed to even attempt to beef up security.
The Lakota School District has been one of a few that have sought input from my office concerning school security. Several recommendations were made. I am proud to say that Lakota actually listened, and put together a plan that incorporates what I believe are several key components.
While not publically discussing the intimate details (for security reasons) of that plan, it does call for one-time funding of physical changes within the schools themselves – upgrading alarms, cameras, retooling doors and entry areas, and the like.
Most important, in my opinion, the plan also calls for tripling the number of on-duty uniformed sheriff’s deputies and West Chester Twp. Police officers assigned to work specifically in the Lakota schools. Unfortunately, no plan in the world can ever guarantee absolute safety. Yet you can’t just say, “I hoe something terrible never happens here.”
When it comes to school security, there comes a time to take action, not just talk about it. I like that Lakota is taking security seriously and wants to take action to make our school, students and teachers safer. I use the word “our” because both of my children graduated from Lakota, and I am still a taxpayer within the Lakota district. This levy is important to me personally.
The economy in general has suffered greatly the last several years. Everyone has had to learn to “do more with less.” It seems everyone has had budget cuts. But you just can’t cut forever. Sooner or later, you have to realize that some things are important enough to pay for. Only the voters will actually decide the outcome of the Lakota school levy and everything that it will fund.
I support the Lakota school levy and urge everyone to do the same. Pass this levy, it’s time.
Richard K. Jones
Spoken like a real government worker. In the world of Jones, as an authority figure, and popular local politician who has is fingers deep in the Republican party and attempts to curry favor with Tea Party types while also saddling up to unionized interests he represents everything that is wrong with government. His support of the Lakota levy, especially this time is to get the proportionally small amount of money that has been promised to him if the levy passes for his police officers. Lakota has a deal with Jones – they are essentially buying his support to employ more police officers and using a school tragedy to advance both positions. Parents are concerned about safety after a highly covered mass school shooting, and these government workers are looking to exploit it.
But the real problem here is a little less obvious, and might seem minor if not looked at on its own. When I submit a Letter to the Editor the word count limit is 300 words. Those are the rules. When anybody else submits a Letter to the Editor, the word count is 300 words. I often compose my letters right at 300 squeezing everything I can out of the space—the way the rules dictate. The Jones letter shown above is 489 words, 189 words over the limit. This small little detail says everything.
Jones is a public official of noted popularity so obviously the newspaper applied different rules for him. They allowed him to exceed the limit of their word count. Police in general have this luxury in society, they often can speed without being pulled over—when they do, their brothers let them off the hook, and they can break the law anytime they want—all they have to do is flip on their lights and proceed through an intersection ignoring the laws. They do the same thing with budgets. When they need more money, they simply write more speeding tickets to fill up their treasury. They are trolls collecting tolls most of the time, aside from the occasional domestic violence issue that arises every now and then. When the police need their budget approved, or need a public relations victory, they make an occasional drug bust so they can get into the newspapers and make everyone think they are doing a good job.
I’m sure Jones knows everyone in Butler County who buys, sells, or is involved in any notable way to the drug trade. Yet only occasionally are drug busts conducted and even then, it’s always some stupid kids who play into the immigration reform debate. I know that there is a lot more drug activity going on that does not get coverage and if I were the police, they would be busted, but they aren’t – so why is it?
The fact of the matter is that there are different rules in society for different people. People on the political inside, who are part of the accepted system, have one set of rules, and people on the outside have another set of rules. Cops function from different rules than the civilian population. They will argue that they are protecting society, and there is no evidence that they are doing anything other than such an activity, because there is not yet technology that can read minds. But in knowing some of these law enforcement types, they are like the college kids who run around dorm rooms with fake FBI badges telling girls they must inspect their bras and panties for their own good and safety. After they feel-out the girls, they reveal that they are not part of the Federal Bureau of Investigations looking for terrorists, but Female Body Inspectors looking to feel-out hot chicks who are half drunk on a Friday night. For the kids and the actual FBI agent it’s all harmless fun. But for the victim, it’s not so wonderful. They live under different rules than the cops, so even if the authority figure is legitimate or not, they must comply or face arrest. If the cop makes such a mistake, they get off with a warning over beer and nachos.
Putting more cops in schools sounds like a recipe for disaster. It’s like putting a wolf in the hen house. I know of several incidents where cops in Hamilton were relieved of their duty forcing young girls pulled over to perform sexual acts to keep from getting a ticket. How do I know, because one of those two knuckle draggers called me for a referral. I knew their wife who was also a cop, and a network of police that extended from Springboro to Clermont County and the amount of sexual play that goes on between police officers is pathetic. That officer called me after he lost his job in Hamilton from another state needing a good word badly. Of course he didn’t get it.
It might seem like a little thing to Jones and the editors at Today’s Pulse to give the Sheriff an extra 189 words, but what they are declaring is that the Sheriff lives by different rules than the rest of us, and the police generally know it. It is not safe to put a bunch of cops in a school with a bunch of teenage girls, unless they are all retired and have had their prostrates removed. Just having an officer of the law in a school with a gun does not make children safe. It might keep children from getting killed by a deranged gunman, but it might introduce dangers that are nearly as corrosive to the lives of children who really don’t need the hassle.
The TSA was created because of panic by society and a government quick to exploit it. Now it is impossible to fly anywhere commercially without some pencil-neck looking at our private parts on a monitor or feeling out some attractive woman who happens to come through security. And these days, just because a man is checking a man, and a woman is checking a woman, it doesn’t mean the officer isn’t getting a rise out of the experience. As social resistance toward homosexuality lowers, the chances of some guy enjoying feeling out the bulge of a weary traveler increases dramatically, or some lesbian caressing a female passenger’s breasts—all in the name of safety.
Sheriff Jones can go on WLW and declare to his buddy Bill that I’m overacting, and that it’s unpatriotic to question the merit of police officers, but the evidence that cops live under different rules than the rest of us is shown above. Today’s Pulse gave Sheriff Jones 489 words to support a Lakota levy, which is an obvious payoff for his support. And nobody is supposed to question the support because we are supposed to trust law enforcement. Meanwhile, there are drug deals being conducted in the open and in large quantities, the immigration issue is out of control as far as what gets smuggled in and out of Butler County – because of the affluence–and the only way the Sheriff can find to keep $350,000 worth of payroll busy is put them in Lakota schools. Something is very fishy.
What would happen if I tried to write more than 300 words in Today’s Pulse, or anybody else? The editor would call us and ask how we could trim down our submissions to fit the guidelines. If it’s a government worker like Superintendent Mantia who gets her own column, or Sheriff Jones, the rules go out the window.
So what would happen if police were put in charge of watching over thousands of teenagers armed with guns and authority? Most of the police would be sincere—but a few—a few would take advantage of the situation. You can bet on that.
Keep the cops out of the schools……………………for the safety of the kids. This isn’t an isolated problem. Its epidemic. Who in their right mind thinks Lakota can keep abuse from happening when they can’t even keep teachers from sexting students? Knowing Jones a bit, I can say that Jones is not a bad man, and publicly he will defend his officers because law enforcement is all he knows, he’s done it his entire life. To admit anything of the facts presented in the above videos to himself would be a failure in belief of all his intellectual foundations. Jones upon reading this I’m sure will say………….”hey, I didn’t make up the system, I’m just making do with what I’ve got. I’m just the sheriff.” But the trouble is, until somebody questions that system and stands up against it with a mirror, it only gets worse and worse and worse. For that reason, Jones is wrong in supporting the Lakota levy for all the reasons mentioned and more that could fill volumes of books. But the biggest is that Jones is only the sheriff, and he wishes to keep his fellow law enforcement officers relevant in a society that is becoming increasingly weary of the laws politicians created in the first place–so the trend is to grip tighter, which is the wrong thing. It would be wrong to put police in Lakota because cops are human beings, and they are fallible. And that fallibility is more dangerous than the remote chance that Sandy Hook could happen at Lakota, as the random odds of destruction intellectually is much, much greater with more authority figures in place to abuse power unregulated.
Say NO To Perverts At Lakota: Sex, Sex, and More Sex–three times in four months during a levy campaign
Sex, and sex and more sex at Lakota schools with underage girls. The reckless antics by Lakota employees continue even under the microscope of tax increase attempts going on the ballot. For the third time in four months a full or part-time Lakota employee has been accused of having improper communications or contact with female students, as reported by the Cincinnati Enquirer. The situation is so out of control that it is absolutely terrifying to consider how many of these employees have not yet been caught.
“In July, an Enquirer search of public records revealed that a full-time Lakota West math teacher – George Merk – had his teaching license suspended for 45 days during the summer break under an agreement with state education officials.
Merk admitted to state official’s improper behavior in communicating with some students but did not cross into physical contact.
And later in July, Robert E. Supinger, a long-term substitute teacher at Lakota West, was accused of kissing a student whom he also took to meet his parents.
Supinger was investigated by Lakota officials while he was teaching during the 2011-12 school year. Last July, state education officials revoked the 25-year-old Supinger’s teaching license; he is no longer allowed to teach in Ohio.”
If you are stupid………….and I mean really, really stupid, join the levy cheerleaders on the For Lakota website in supporting the child molesters who are employed by Lakota. If you are smart, articulate and speak in complete sentences join the rest of the Lakota school district at the No Lakota Levy website where truth, justice and the American way are all that keep these parasites from having unfettered access to the wealth of Liberty Twp and West Chester property values.
And if you have a daughter and think they are safe at Lakota schools…………..you are stupid!
