Right-to-Work Announcement in Ohio: This is Rich Hoffman Speaking

“On Tuesday, Senate Bill 5 was rejected throughout Ohio as draconian overreach. Now they are trying to reach into the private sector,” said Chris Redfern, chairman of Ohio Democratic Party. “They’re inviting a challenge.”

Source article: http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20111110/NEWS0108/111110327/Ohio-group-pushes-right-work-amendment

This comment came on the announcement that a group not associated with Governor Kasich, not associated with the Koch Brothers, not even associated with the Republican Party is seeking to place on the ballot the ability for Ohio to become a right-to-work state. See the press conference for yourself here.

Now, I know those guys pretty well, and they are a group of fair and balanced guys. They truly desire to give to the state of Ohio a level of freedom that has been uttered from the silent parties within these unions for quite a long time. These union members who are tired of having their union dues translated into funding for the Democratic Party want out of their imprisonment, which is but one of the issues addressed in Issue 2. When opponents of Issue 2 said that the law was too “far reaching” people like Chris and Mike listened. So they are seeking just one small little measure that was in Issue 2, originally designated for the public union employee. The proposed constitutional amendment does not go after employee wages, does not ask them to pay more for their health care, and does not affect seniority or any of the union concerns debated in Issue 2. All the right-to-work amendment proposes to do in the above press conference is give people the option to be in a union or not to. It’s that simple.

But wait……………………..the unions are already upset? I thought they said they could “compromise” and be reasonable. Listen to Melissa Fazekas, spokeswoman for We Are Ohio.

“Just two days ago, Ohioans spoke with one clear and emphatic voice, and voted by an overwhelming margin to support our everyday heroes and their right to collectively bargain. Yet, today their voices are already being ignored, even after Gov. (John R.) Kasich and legislative leaders have promised to listen and reflect on Tuesday’s vote.”

Well, this statement requires comment since it is obvious that the opponents of Issue 2 seem confused as to what is happening in the world around them. And that comment will not come from the good people who are proposing this constitutional amendment, or any other group. They are a fair-minded assemblage who truly wants what is fair and good for the majority in Ohio. Instead the comments made below are exclusively mine and they are addressed specifically to the public and private sector unions. This is Rich Hoffman Speaking.

People who are not in a union do not take their marching orders from politicians like you in the unions do. John Kasich is not our commander as Richard Trumka and Barack Obama are yours. We do not bow down to an authority figure that takes money from us and gives it to progressive politics. We are a people who desire freedom, even if we are in the minority.

My take on the Issue 2 debate is that only 39% were able to comprehend the contents of that very good bill, the rest were simply too stupid to wrap their little minds around the idea. I would say the same if it was only 1% who voted, because I read the bill and thought it was fair, and believe it or not, I did so completely on my own. No union steward told me to read it. I did it on my own. That’s called self-responsibility. I witnessed the union machine, which I am forced to help fund, scare Ohioans into voting the union way. I watched money pour in from out-of-state and saw the influence all the way up to the White House taking part in being a gear for that machine. And even with all your efforts 39% still voted against you.

I said all along that the Yes vote would need 2 million voters to win at the polls and only 1,321,494 showed up. During a presidential election 5 million voters usually turn out, so a lot of people stayed home and watched TV, so by no means the 2 million who voted to repeal Issue 2 represent Ohio’s wishes. It represented the 350,000 public workers their moms and dads and wives, girlfriends and children, grandmas and grandpa’s, and the rest are people scared of their own shadows. This landslide is not what you think it is. All it means is that Issue 2 was too hard to understand, so those who might have voted against you stayed home and ordered pizza.

I have watched school levy after school levy get voted down on Tuesday, and go right back on the ballot on Wednesday. That is the union way, if you don’t get what you want the first time through, then push it through again and again until it passes, till the opposition is so worn out they no longer have the will to fight. Why then should not the same tactic be applied to the unions? Did you think that those of us who want to be free of you would just go away? Why would people like me not wish to drive the measure back down your throats, once, twice, or twenty-five more times? It would be my hope that instead of Issue 2 being passed in one large bill as it was that it will be passed as 15 separate bills and that the unions will spend themselves into oblivion defending each and every one of them. Did you think that this would all just go away on the day after the election? No, welcome to our world where taxes are constantly proposed to fuel your tyranny! Those of us who have defeated our tax levies know the fight will never end till the unions are out of the business of government. You did it to yourselves. I do not hate you because of your two legs, two arms and one head; I hate you because you are an instrument of tyranny and your higher taxes are an imposition to my freedom. You ask more of me so that you my live and I demand of you to do for yourself and to leave me alone.

Your nature is revealed in your opposition to becoming a right-to-work state. You wish simply to hold the paychecks of your member’s hostage so they will turn out and vote your way. You want the membership numbers for reasons of extortion, and force. You care not that some of your members seek freedom from your clutches. You only care that they send you a check! THAT IS YOUR NATURE! You are parasites who consume the world around you. You will do anything to win no different from a sleazy thief picking pockets in a Las Vegas casino. I watched you hide behind the firefighters to gain support among the mushy minded masses. Do you think you will be so successful if the firefighters and police were not involved? You should be thankful that the Republicans at least attempted to be honest and fair from their stand point. Me………I would have attacked each union separately, starting with the teachers and severed the flow of money from the NEA into our state politics. Then I would have reformed the FOP and their connection to the AFL-CIO, then maybe the firefighters and their connection to the Trumka gang. I would have also have done so with 20 different bills and forced those groups to fight on every front! Spend 30 million dollars fighting the ability to strike. Spend 30 million dollars fighting the right to collectively bargain. Spend 30 million fighting the insurance premiums. Spend 30 million fighting the right-to-work. Spend 30 million fighting the issue of step increases. Yes unions, you were right, Issue 2 was too sweeping for one swallow. Only 39% of the voters were able to swallow, and the rest sat on their hands in indecision. My plan would have emptied the 1 billion dollars that Obama is sitting on in his election bid and forced him to save his union brothers and sisters in an attempt to win Ohio leaving him with no money to win any other state. You should be thankful that John Kasich and his Republican friends did not attempt to be so malicious. I would have.

Fair? I heard that term over and over during the campaign. Is it fair that one dollar of my money goes to support an organization that I consider detrimental to America? I don’t want my money sent to my local school to pay a teacher to then be converted by union dues and used by the teachers union to fund candidates who are progressive and out to rob my country of its freedom loving nature. Look at the child with a helmet on his bicycle riding 5 MPH as his frightened mother looks on afraid that her little one will splat his brains all over the sidewalk. This is the result of your unions and their attempts to justify their existence by overreaching their authority in the class-room and among the police authority. Look at the fat-fingered politician who creates legislation due to the union lobby in trade for campaign contributions that find themselves in the G-strings of a local stripper, the politician and his comb-over slicked over with French fry oil is using campaign money so his wife doesn’t find out about it. Look at the cops on a Saturday night setting up DUI checkpoints to “rid” society of drunk drivers. What they are really doing is showing that they are overstaffed and need something for those officers to do. The MAD mothers who created much of that “drinking” legislation played right into the hands of the union lobby, and gave them an excuse to mandate insurance, which gave cops something to do, mandate drunk driving laws, which gave cops something to do, and revenue to generate, and gave police the right to pull people over even if they were only on their way to the video store, to take away freedoms of the citizens using safety as the guise. Is it fair that your existence is eroding away my freedoms?

Is it fair that my quality of life is diminished because your mind is like a rock; it absorbs nothing, gradually becomes smaller over time with erosion, and sinks to the bottom of anything it’s tossed in to. Is my life to be attached to yours out of some altruistic fantasy? Am I chained to your lack of ambition for life? Is that what you think?

If I were to bring a company to Ohio, I would not want some parasite union attempting to corrupt my workforce with socialism. I would locate in Texas, Tennessee, South Carolina and other right-to-work states. In those places, if someone wants to organize a union, they can. But the members aren’t forced to join. Unions are a form of cronyism that involves fathers employing their sons, and uncles employing their nephews. It does not guarantee the best employee for the job and performance on that occupation. I have traveled extensively, and I have toured many manufacturing plants, and common to the union facilities are employees who watch TV during their shift. Cross-training is nearly extinct, and there is always a fear that the whole workforce will walk off the job if they become unhappy. Why would Boeing want to locate to South Carolina? TO AVOID LABOR STOPPAGES THAT AFFECTS THEIR ORDERS!

I have never met an enemy of the American system that is as clueless as the typical union worker. And I want no part of them. I will gladly support workers who are not part of a union. If there is a right-to-work option I could see who I can trust and who I can’t. I should have that option! And so should the employee! The only reason a union would be against an employee right-to-work option is to force them into a marriage they can control. What happens to the man who attempts to control his wife by forcing her into a marriage with intimidation and control? The woman may play along for the benefit of her family, but secretly she is scheming against the husband. Secretly she is looking for lovers. Secretly she plays the husband’s friends against him. Secretly she spits in his food when she prepares it, and she denies him sex except when he forces himself on her in a drunken splendor. That is what your employees who want out of the union are doing to you behind your back. Believe me, I know, I hear from them! They are praying that someone come and help them, to break the chains which shackle them to tyranny so that they may spring free!

Unions, you are not as strong as you think you are. Yes, you have many members who are selfish activists to suit your cause. You have built a system constructed on extortion and your members are addicted to the income you’ve stolen on their behalf. But people are waking up. You spent over $30 million dollars and could only get 2 million voters to the ballot box. That is not a task I’d be slapping any back about. It is hardly a mandate to your existence. You could have obtained 2 million votes with only one dollar spent, because it was your internal network that showed up. Not one person more!

So I think it is more than fair to put an amendment to the Ohio Constitution that allows every employee the option to decide if they want to join a union or not. The option should be there for them to make, which is a form of transparency that is much-needed. For all the reason above and many, many more Ohio is a state in need of options. And I personally want to be free of the radicalism of the unions, and I want to support employees who elect to also be free of those tyrannical organizations.

Making Ohio a right-to-work state is a long, long way from what I want, but it is a reasonable concession for the other 99.9% of the state who might not feel as strongly as I do. I would think that all parties involved, unions and non-union would at least honor the right to American freedom, unless I am right about the union intentions, which is to be a dictatorship of socialism that is anti-capitalist in their nature. Because that would be the only reason they’d stand against Ohio becoming a right-to-work state.

Letter from a Lakota Father: If you can’t beat the message, steal it!!!!!!!

I have watched in some surprise how the Pro Lakota Levy people either indirectly or directly attempt to shut down the message of the NO LAKOTA LEVY. Police reports have been filed, but nobody really cares that thousands of dollars in investment have been stolen from people’s property. Over the last 48 hours it’s been our big 4’X 5’ signs as seen in the pictures here that have turned up missing. Those signs are too big to put in the back of a car, it would take a truck to steal them. And they were stolen using razor blades to cut loose the ties. And it would also require the police departments who are on duty to look the other way while cars and trucks drive around in the middle of the night stealing property. After all, aren’t all these public employees united in their anger toward Issue 2, and therefore protecting each other?

It is the only logical conclusion, because it would take a lot of time and a lot of car trunks to steal that many signs, especially the big ones.

But is it a surprise………..no. While I was taking calls from all over the community by angry people who have lost their NO LAKOT LEVY signs I received this note from the father I mentioned in a previous, heartbreaking article. You can review that situation at this link.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/sex-at-lakota-schools-i-just-want-to-see-justice-said-the-husband/

The reason they have to steal the signs is because they cannot argue the message on the signs. It was reported in the Cincinnati Enquirer just today that even after 12 million dollars cut, Lakota topped every district in Cincinnati in academic achievement, and they did it without a superintendent. They know this levy is about one thing………..CONTRACT COSTS! They are protecting their incomes at our expense, so they seek to shut down the message. That’s what they did to the man who wrote the letter below, which I include here without any editorial measure on my part. I wonder how many just like him are out there in Lakota who are in a similar situation. We’ll never know, because just like the sign theft that is going on, the school pushed this story under the rug as well.

The author of this letter, we’ll call him “FINAO” wanted me to post this to share with others. It is his recommendation of how you should vote for the Lakota Levy and the school board members. When reading the letter and thinking about what kind of pain this guy is talking about consider that bad things go on in big programs, Ohio State comes to mind, and Penn State most recently. When a person comes forward and asks for help, they should get it, and not be shoved under the rug. Bad things happen when the rug gets too full, and I would argue that the rug at Lakota is getting pretty full. Under that rug you’ll find lots of stuff, including our signs.  (THE PICTUES INCLUDED WITH THE LETTER ARE WHAT’S LEFT OF OUR SIGNS SHOWN ABOVE)

____________________________________________________________________

The end of one journey and beginning of another

I have always made it a point after a long journey whether it was business or personal to reflect back on my actions and decisions to simply learn and become a better person.

I soon realized that in order for our story to be felt as real and for all to understand I would have to put a face on it filled with an objective but emotional approach. But it would have to be done in a way to protect the confidentiality and emotions of my family. So here I am today.

The story about individual behaviors and personal agendas shared with you over the past few days in this blog are real and our story will be told again, by someone else, if changes are not made. The emotions of pain, frustration and disappointment were real and were caused while attempting to seek the truth. But there was a satisfaction knowing that my story was kept by me within the confines of the Lakota schools not only to protect its integrity but allowing those responsible to hear my story, justify their decisions and make the changes necessary to do what was right. Do what was right for the Lakota schools, its students, families and ultimately its taxpayers. In most cases I was met with silence, an action I can reassure you was not comforting.

When I reached the end of my resources at Lakota I came to a crossroads. I could move on knowing that I defended my family and feel blessed that I met one good person along the way, Ron Spurlock, who was the only one who ever said” I understand because I am a parent”. Or I could search for that one last person that would allow me to accomplish the only goal I had: Tell my story and help me understand and come to terms with whether decisions made were made in the best interest of my family and the Lakota schools.

To do that I would need to find someone who is committed to their cause. Whether I agreed with their cause was not important as long as they were objective, fair and understanding while I told my story written with facts. I found that person in Rich Hoffman.

Until I met Rich Hoffman I had never spoke with him or even read his blog but if I listened to what people around me were saying we would have never met and that would have been a loss for more than just my family.

But we did and I watched as his skepticism turned into concern and I knew then I found the right person. It is important to note that upon leaving I gave him no expectations and/or demands just simply thanked him for giving me closure on this journey. I said if he believed in my story simply do what was right for all of Lakota as long as he protected my family; because I have been there once before and will never go there again.

For me to name names at this time would be counterproductive because the individuals responsible for our years of pain and frustration know who they are. And if they are able to lay their head on their pillow at night believing they did the right thing for my family and Lakota then so be it. I am proud of my family for facing our issues and making the necessary changes to be stronger then we have ever been. Our daughter is growing emotionally and showing us what we knew she was always capable of doing.

I close with this simple advice:

Before you vote for your board candidates make sure you know who they are, what they represent and more importantly memorize or write down their promises and/or commitments. There may be a time, in your right as a taxpayer, to question them if their decisions fall outside that. Be comfortable that they will make positive changes and uphold the accountability of others along the way.

And finally the levy is not as simple as yes or no. Understand the facts on both sides making sure they were presented in an objective way; the only emotion shown was in their belief of such facts. Be comfortable that those making financial and educational decisions do so with your family in mind along with the students and taxpayers of the Lakota schools.

I learned from one of my life’s mentors that a mistake is not bad unless you refuse to acknowledge it and learn from it for the betterment of those around you. I know from experience our satisfaction and growth will someday be well worth the journey. Thanks for listening and be strong.

FINAO

The “Wind” is Taking the NO LAKOTA Levy Signs: A sin known but left alone is still a sin!

Since Sandy Wheatley of the Move Forward Lakota push used references to the bible in the debate we had toward the end of September, I’m sure she could appreciate an event of BIBLICAL proportions since she also said recently that the reason the No Lakota Levy signs were missing was because the “wind” was blowing them away. You can see that reference and debate here:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/09/03/the-circus-of-lakota-my-debate-with-the-pro-levy-people-its-the-wookie-defense/

Well……as you can see, one of our very large signs located on Hamilton-Mason went missing over the weekend and it appears that the loss was biblical in nature. You see, when the owner of the sign went out to discover where his sign had gone, he saw that the “wind” had torn away all the straps that held the sign in place, cutting them completely in half. The sign mysteriously disappeared into the heavens leaving only the frame of the sign behind.

Also, as you can see, these “good” Christian soldiers of the Move Forward campaign are running such a clean campaign that they are putting their signs in front of our signs in a childish attempt to cover our message. Isn’t that very………………Christian of them.

Oh, I’m sure God is on their side.

Well, I wouldn’t bring God into this if I didn’t know that being good and kind was an important attribute to some of the people working on the Move Forward campaign. If they knew there was vandalism going on surely they wouldn’t endorse it with ignorance. Or surely they wouldn’t participate by offering encouragement.

No, I wouldn’t think so. Surely not. Nobody is that much of a lowlife, are they?

Well, I heard from a Levy supporter, one of those kind people who were at the school picking up signs and other material to support the levy. For those people I have a message here:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/11/06/dont-be-stupid-vote-all-school-levies-down-and-vote-yes-on-issue-2/

The email from the levy supporter is wonderful in showing the quality of the mind of their supporters. Read the email for yourself:

This is from a guy named Carter,

> I hope all of you are will to take the same pay cuts you want the teachers to take,
> remember that schools are a service industry and payroll will be the largest part of the budget. I am sure none of you have every been to a band competition or a football game or an art show. The impact has also already started. I am sure you could not tell me who the band director is at East and how the band did this year and the last 10 years. You would like our students to just be average and not prepared for college. If you put signs near the school where kids walk by and expect nothing to happen, this is why you think only of yourself.

___________________________________________________________________

What do you say to a person like that? They live in an education bubble and clearly need a basic education to even have a foundation discussion. Yes, I know who the band director was, Mr. William Thomas. I wrote about him at the link below. I actually like that guy.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/11/01/macrocosm-and-the-microcosm-its-a-math-problem-displayed-in-art/

Hey Carter, or the Levy Supporters working the campaign. Where were you when one of your treasured teachers seduced the mother of one of our community families using the child to do it? Oh….yes……where were you when that crime was being committed against the child’s family? You can read about that situation here.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/sex-at-lakota-schools-i-just-want-to-see-justice-said-the-husband/

Oh, maybe adultery isn’t a crime anymore. After all, it’s only sex………….right. The problem with this story is I know that everybody on the inside of the Lakota Levy knows about the case I’m talking about, yet they chose to turn their eyes away from it. I think they actually believe that God is on their side, because I also know some of them are very active in their churches. So when I hear comments like, “The wind is blowing down the signs of the No Lakota Levy People,” coming from the Move Forward Campaign I have to assume that the same blind eye is being turned toward the knowledge of vandalism of the No Lakota Levy signs, and the knowledge that some of the employees that are employed at Lakota are actually quite bad, such as the teacher who attempted to break up this family. Don’t tell me you don’t know……………….it’s all the rage?

But maybe it wasn’t God or the Wind at all who took our signs at the home on Hamilton-Mason Rd. Maybe it was something else; some sinister force conjured up by the true nature of a black heart hiding behind a veil of goodness………………………..perhaps. But as we inspected the fasteners of the lost sign I can tell you one thing……………………….IT WASN’T THE DAMN WIND!!!!!!!!!!!

Just remember Move Forward Lakota people, a sin known but left alone is still a sin, even if you turn your eyes away and pretend you know nothing.

Don’t Be STUPID: Vote all school levies down, and VOTE YES on ISSUE 2

Darryl Parks of 700 WLW had a marvelous show on Saturday, November 5, 2011 just before the election where he covered all the different aspects involved in passing school levies and whether or not the funding is actually needed at the levels public education is demanding. When talking about school funding it becomes quickly evident that school districts all over America, particularly in Ohio have no idea what they are doing and are not functioning from any laws of business sense that the rest of society lives under. In public education the tail wags the dog and the dog reacts to that movement. And that behavior reminds me of the kind of man Al Gore is, an out-of-touch, big government liberal. So Darryl ahead of the election was discussing all the reasons people are stupid if they vote for a school levy. I came on with Darryl at 21:30. In fact this segment is so good you should listen to the entire broadcast which is 1 hour 19 minutes, so grab a snack and prepare to listen to the whole thing.

In the very contentious year of 2000 when George W. Bush ran against Al Gore for the presidency and liberals for the next 8 years could not forget about how close the election actually was and accused Bush of “STEALING” the election, a more startling statistic jumps out at us. Al Gore had 84% of the nation’s college professors cast a vote for him as president. Only 9% voted for Bush. So if the nation was evenly split between Bush and Gore pretty much 50/50, then what segment of society are producing members of the “education class?”

This isn’t a question of Republican against Democrats, because to me there wasn’t much difference between Bush and Gore regarding political philosophy. Both were big government advocates, which drew the split of the country’s opinion. But it is the perception of what Gore stands for that put him over the top among the very liberal-minded members of the “Education Class.” And in the year 2000 those college professors were providing bachelor and master’s degrees to the teachers who are in our schools today. Some of those teachers have become administrators and even superintendents, and show the footprint of that learned liberalism in virtually everything they do.

When I first started looking in to the whole school funding problem a year ago and applied the same rules I have used on myself when dealing with budget issues the very first thing that jumped out at me were the wages. They were just too high for the amount and skill level of those employees. Lakota, my school system was trying to maintain a wage structure that had no regulation. The school board meets twice a month to manage a $250 million dollar budget and they are the only guard against excessive spending. When the superintendent of the school makes more than the governor of Ohio, you have a major problem in importance perception, and that distortion permeates all the ranks of the administration. To see how much superintendents make, read and watch the videos at these two articles.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/05/10/superintendents-make-more-than-the-governor-changes-and-corruption-in-public-school/

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/05/11/the-most-important-broadcast-youll-ever-hear-the-crises-in-west-clermont-school-distict-and-every-public-school-in-ohio/

If after listening to Darryl’s broadcast and watching the I-Team investigations on those two links, and reading all the information I’ve put down here for your convenience, and you still vote for a school levy, then you can’t be helped. I would simply write you off as a contributing member of society by classifying you as a derelict of thought. You were obviously instructed by the same kind of people who voted for Al Gore and you left your brain in college where it was offered to the Al Gore quest to rid the world of Man-Bear-Pig and his “super cereal” efforts to save us all portrayed wonderfully by the cartoon South Park.

Because only people who have fried all their brain cells in some hippie diatribe of drug induced infestation would vote for a school levy. Only a brain-dead, tie die, pot smoking, pony tail wearing, over-weight, thin-skinned, overly sensitive, pimple popping, Marxist, tweed jacketed, Greenpeace loving, fool would vote for a school levy. Only an Al Gore voting, Clinton apologist who looks at Barack Obama as the second coming, and could name all the contestants of Dancing with the Stars but would fall short of naming a single one of their state reps would vote for a school levy. Only a person who completely sucks as a parent, and tries to cover up that suckiness with money would vote for a school levy. Only a person who believes in Man-Bear-Pig would vote for a school levy. In short, if you vote for a school levy………….AT ALL………………………you are STUPID!!!!! STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Why? Because as Darryl and I discussed, in the real world costs are regulated daily. I could never sit down in front of the owners who hire me and tell them that their payroll would just increase in an uncontrolled fashion infinitely, without any control. If I told an owner of a business, “You must increase your sales, (REVENUE) to meet your payroll, my life as a manager would be over in about 1/10th of a second. What the owner hires a manager for is to maintain the profit margin while driving down the costs. I would personally use the 10-80-10 rule.

I talk about that rule in this article in case you don’t know what it is:
https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/02/27/s-b-5-would-have-saved-1-3-billion-in-2010-yet-the-oea-says-its-teachers-will-suffer-when-the-average-teacher-makes-55k/

Public schools do nothing close to this. What happens is the union lobby pushes to get school board members elected who work against a sleepy public not paying attention. Those school board members provide almost no management of community resources. The union negotiates great benefits for their members which lowers the resistance to paying union dues so that money can be used to purchase political lobby power. And when the district needs more money, they simple pass another levy. And there are a whole set of manipulations that the union lobby has embedded in the community from their radical teachings provided by groups like the NEA which instructs them.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/30/come-on-a-ride-herman-cain-stacy-schuler-and-the-nea-fear-terror-and-halloween/

Some of those radical tactics are to cut busing, even though it’s a small cost of the whole budget. Cut electives because parents want those for their children. Cut sports, because many parents hope to obtain a scholarship to help pay for college. The union knows that by taking away what parents want, they can control the behavior of the parent. It’s done for the same reason that a parent might take away the favorite toy of their own child to control the behavior of the child. And for the residents of a community who don’t have kids in the district, the union lobby attacks them with guilt. “Can’t you pay the tax? Someone paid for your education, now you need to pay that back,” or sometimes outright vandalism. SEE SOME EXAMPLES HERE:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/radicals-in-lakota-vandals-steal-and-destroy-vote-no-signs/

In fact with all the evidence provided here for your benefit, if you have not made use of it, and learned the game and how it’s played and you still vote for a levy, to feed this insane system that is out-of-control, then I would go so far to say that you are not only STUPID, but are in fact a DUMB ASS!

Sorry, I don’t mean to hurt your feelings. But you are. Anyone who votes to get rid of Issue 2, is also a DUMB ASS. It makes me weary to know that some of the air I have breathed into my lungs may have been exhaled from yours. It makes me weary because the same disease that has eaten your brain may enter my blood stream and infect me with the same slow-growing illness. I feel sorry for the children of these stupid people because they will also grow up and become stupid, and that is unfortunate. And when these stupid people are senior citizens, God forbid the imposition they will become on society. Can you imagine a stupid person who doesn’t even have the intelligence to care for themselves when they’ve lost their physical characteristics and muscle mass is a thing of the past? Will they just sit on a couch and hope Man-Bear-Pig will drop food in their mouths? Will they hope their children will care for them, because they won’t have the ability, because they too will be too stupid to move?

This election is about a lot more than just votes cast. It’s a measure against how stupid we have really become as a society, and the results will show us if we’ve already went beyond the point of no-return.

I know I’ve put the information out there, so I feel OK about it. But I worry as I look at some of my friends and neighbors who appear to be no different from a Zombie from some horror film, as the drool falls out of the corner of their mouth, as they say they will support a school levy. Such people are a menace to society and are ills to the future of the human race, and that in its essence is what this election in Ohio represents.

So, one last time, DON’T BE STUPID!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Vote every single school levy down. Every ONE!!!! And vote to keep Issue 2. And teachers, firefighters and police who have less than 5 years on the job, you better Vote YES on ISSUE 2. Don’t listen to your union buddies on the force. Because when the layoffs come, you’ll be the first to go. If Issue 2 holds and we can engage in merit based pay, management will be able to keep you, the young employee, and let go of that fat-ass superior of yours who is just milking the system. YEAH, you know who they are, and so do I. So for your own protection, make sure you VOTE YES on ISSUE 2. Once you get in the voting booth, those slugs will never know, so you’ll be safe. If you don’t do that and you find yourself on the unemployment line in February it can be for only one reason YOU ARE…………………………….Well, you know the rest!

The Black Holes of Public Education: Lakota, Cincinnati Public and Lebanon all have them!

Yes…………………a BLACK HOLE! That is what is threatening to suck the life out of every community in Ohio who has a public school in it. Forces of massive gravity that not even light can escape! They suck up the money of communities with a ferocity unmatched in the UNIVERSE!!!!! The Black Hole swirls around in the blackness of space and consumes everything that it comes across in a never-ending thirst to annihilate. Lakota has one, Lebanon has one, Fairfield has one, Cincinnati Public has a BIG ONE, Mt Healthy, West Clermont and many others have Black Holes in their districts which are consuming the wealth of those districts in a never-ending quest for funding that will never end.

Harsh? Not enough I’m afraid, for the fiscal discipline of public schools in Ohio is currently a joke that nobody is laughing at. In Cincinnati 11 districts are looking for money to sustain a system that is 50 years out of date, not even close to being the best in the world, and seems to only serve the “Education Class,” a breed of pretentious human beings who look to Europe for guidance in a quest for safety and compliance. The “Education Class” like the “Political Class” is a group of fellow human beings dedicated to THE BLACK HOLE. They worship it like a God and will sacrifice all who come before them to the hunger of that perpetual starvation. Doc Thompson of 700 WLW and I discuss public schools, especially the sinister situation at Lakota along with Issue 2, a proposed fix to the Black Holes of our public education system.

One of the most daunting revelations that were unveiled when the finance reports came out prior to the 2011 elections was that the Lakota School System had spent over $12K on consulting firms. I learned that Lebanon and several other districts also spent similar money on some of these same consultants which prompted my mind into an investigation, which can be seen at this link. Now, as Doc and I discussed, the schools themselves do not take money out of their treasury to pay for this behavior. But the network that the taxpayers do provide serves to furnish the funding ran by the “education class” to raise the money for these consultants.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/11/04/lakota-spent-26180-50-to-purchase-votes-paul-bunyan-is-still-swingging-the-axe/

A friend of mine who used to be a school board member…….at Lakota…..explained to me how the game works, which you dear reader might find interesting. One of the groups the Pro Levy Lakota people hired to provide consultation was Effron and Associates. It should be noted that the new superintendent of Lakota, Karen Mantia retired from the Sycamore School District.

“Effron and Associates is owned by a former teacher from the Sycamore School District. When Bill Sears left Lebanon he was quoted in the paper saying that he would be joining Effron and Associates as a consultant. Bill Sears used to work with Roger Effron at Sycamore. Bill’s wife is/was a teacher at Lakota, his son was bumped up to principal in the Mason School District. A principal from Mason was sent to Lebanon, Ian Frank. See how they all take care of each other.

Bill Sears was also given a nice fat position at Little Miami. He was also named as a consultant to Voorhis and Assoc. in Mason. Coincidentally they did the architectural arrangements for the new Lebanon schools. Voorhis did contribute to levy campaigns in Lebanon. I found it interesting that Mr. Sears was such an expert and yet left Lebanon with the district’s books in a mess. $5 million misappropriated etc etc. That is another story.

This is how the school business operates. You really don’t have to be accountable. You don’t really have to be good at your job. You just have to know the right people and move on when things get a little too ‘hot.’”


To confirm what we already know if you read this site often, this “moving on” when things get too “HOT” is exactly what Lakota did to a teacher recently when he was caught using one of his students to have sex with the parent of that child. He was simply moved from one high school to the other at Lakota. You can see more of that story here, in case you missed it:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/sex-at-lakota-schools-i-just-want-to-see-justice-said-the-husband/

This activity certainly isn’t limited to this cast of characters. It’s actually widespread, and anyone who gives this “Education Class” more money to perpetuate this type of behavior is endorsing it openly. And the value of the money you spend on them is the same as tossing it into a Black Hole in the vast reaches of space only to be crushed beyond recognition within the intense gravity of a singularity.

Left unchecked the black hole of public schools will devour everything given to them. EVERYTHING! They do manage to appear colorful and inviting from a distance, but once you get too close, time, perspective, logic and all value are warped into an abyss from which there is no escape.

Well, escape may actually be a relative term when it comes to school funding. Because after all, we know that if matter exists that it can’t just disappear into nothing. So what happens when we toss matter into a black hole, where does it go? Well, the rationalization can really only be explained in quantum mechanics and the theory of the multi-verse. Based on what I have seen of the education funding consumed by the “education class” I believe they don’t actually live in the same world as the rest of us, but instead reside in the 11th dimension.

In the 11th dimension they in the “education class” are living by completely different rules, so logic cannot even be remotely applied to their actions. They exist for themselves and they require the massive destruction of all our terrestrial resources to fuel their existence in a dimension that is so compressed into an infinite smallness that we cannot even detect their presence, except for the black holes which sustain them.

Relative to us however, the black holes of public education are parasites of destruction that will consume the entire universe if allowed without any guilt of its expenditure. So we would be wise to avoid those black holes and starve them out of existence for our own protection. Because in sustaining them all we really do is endorse their own personal version of hell of which our loved ones are captive, and the futures of our children are shackled like slaves to the demons of tyranny while the madness that governs the “education class” attempts to consume us all!

Like Doc Thompson pointed out, the multiple levy attempts, the public education black holes do have a purpose. They do fuel the economy. The consulting firms they hire in their network of thieves spend money on movies, restaurants, alcohol, and other consumables, and that does have value. The difficulty is that while doing so they stop at nothing on an endless desire to consume, and consume, and consume until there is nothing else left for us to give, until we are pulled into the hole ourselves only to be crushed and consumed as their fodder.

Vote NO on all school levies in Ohio. Starve the “education class” out of the 11th dimension and force them into our world so we can deal with them squarely, with equitable benefit. For our own survival we must make them come to us, because if we go to them as we have in the past, we only have a crushing destruction awaiting us at the singularity of the black hole. That crushing singularity is called DEBT!


Before we part ways here on these pages of justice the question must be answered, who are these perpetrators of the “education class,” the vile beings themselves who are simply legalized looters who are embedded into these black holes and reside at the singularities with their mouths open. Meet them here:

Join in the fight against these sinister BLACK HOLES which threaten to consume our schools and communities with them!  Check out these websites and friends of this site to find out how:

Macrocosm and the Microcosm: It’s a math problem displayed in art

I had a beer with my son-in-law at The Polo Grill in Mason and we discussed our thoughts of the upcoming election and people in general. The video below articulates perfectly my current mood. As I speak to my constitutional purist friends in the Tea Party, my Wild West traditional arts friends, and my conservative political friends, and even my artistic friends who almost agree with nothing politically with me, I continue to be amazed at how willingly we place upon ourselves chains of social bondage. The first comment I received last night from a person I respect a great deal about the sexual situation I described in the article at the link below was “What’s the big deal? It’s sex between consenting adults.” Clearly the message was lost in the importance of the story:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/31/sex-at-lakota-schools-i-just-want-to-see-justice-said-the-husband/

The artist who assembled this painting accurately portrays my current feeling about virtually everything. Have a look.

I spend a lot of my time thinking about life in the macrocosm and that video shows the condition of the American macrocosm.I am infinitely fascinated with the conditions that add up to that macrocosm so events in the microcosm are things I pay a lot of attention to. And one of the conditions which add up to those people in chains shown in that artistic rendering begin in public education.

Many people inaccurately assume that I have a hatred of public education because I don’t want to increase taxes on the community to pay for it. At one level, public education is simply too expensive. The cost of it needs to come down. But personally, I am not happy with the product that public education produces, mainly because they are largely responsible for the willingness of the people in that video for putting on those chains.

I have listened to many stories come at me from acts that go on within a school system. Since I live in the Lakota district, which is considered one of the best in the country, there are still plenty of stories of bullying between class types among students. It seems to happen more to the children of parents who cause trouble. It’s almost as if unconsciously the participants in these schools have a collective defense mechanism against threats to the system itself. Parents who have problems with the school, whether it be a case where a teacher comes on to the mother of a student to engage in sex, or if a parent is one of those people who come to school board meetings and try to make sense of the numbers, those people are labeled as trouble makers, and they are targeted as well as their children. Bullying isn’t just happening on the playground or on the school board as Linda O’Conner stated recently, where she felt she was being bullied off the school board for being a dissenting vote too often.

Last year prior to the levy attempt I was shocked to learn that the very treasured band teacher William Thomas was told his job was on the chopping block if the levy didn’t pass. This caused the parents and students who adore him to become very upset and rally to pass the levy. The whole scene was a scare tactic started by the administrators to manipulate the public into passing the levy, just like cutting busing is to create fear and anger in the parents so they will pass a higher tax on themselves.

A parent who had a controversial issue that involved many people within the school found that his child was singled out by other students and picked on aggressively. What made those students pick on his child? A teacher whispered in their ear to initiate the behavior indirectly. Of course all this behavior is hearsay; it’s just words in a hallway, or in a classroom, or a subtle message on Facebook. It’s the same subtle message that came from the labor unions, and ultimately George Soros to start the Wall Street Riots. It’s whispers in the microcosm to affect the macrocosm because small events add up to big events and manipulators know it.

I saw on my way to work today that virtually all of our No Lakota Levy signs had been stolen. We’ve lost over 700 signs over the last week and a half. Why? The reason was to shut down the message, to protect the collective whole of the school system, and it took a pretty large effort to collect that many signs, so it’s not just one or two people.

So at one level my anger is at the audacious costs these public schools expect from the community to operate. But secondly, it’s what they expect people to take as they maintain an “education class” which instructs their “product,” the students themselves, to enter life already in chains, and as a lover of individual freedom, I find it appalling I am required through my taxes to contribute to such a poor “product.” What they are making is something I don’t want to deal with in the future because it is all the little events in the microcosm, the bullying, the subtle manipulations to secure funding, the political imbalance in philosophic collectivism, the radicalism of the public unions, the product public schools create that is terrible! They prepare the mind of mankind to fall for the utterances of half-baked presidents and live life in chains just as that artist portrayed.

So it is not my fault if you dear reader cannot connect the dots. If you read what I put here and wonder, “what is he after?” “He just hate’s public school.” “He wants attention.” You are making those assertions from your perspective in the microcosm of your existence and the static patterns of your life will not allow you to see beyond. That fault is your own. The way I see such people are simply as links in the chains that bind us all to a mental slavery started in the games played in public education.

I am thankful that there are artists out there who can so accurately capture the macrocosm of the problem even if our society is powerless to stop it because of the foundations that are established in the microcosm and propelled by those who are simply blind.  I am also thankful for cold beer in The Polo Grill and the company of people who” get it.”  Because as long as the beer is cold and the hamburgers are that good, the rest of the world can drown on its dept and ignorance as far as I care.

Come On a Ride: Herman Cain, Stacy Schuler, and the NEA–fear, terror and Halloween

I love Herman Cain. Now here is a guy who gets it, and his new smoking ad punches through invisible barriers to a double-standard radicalism that is breed into our culture. In fact, it is so deeply ingrained that few people even realize that they have been radicalized or that their daily behavior reflects it.

I’m going to ask you for a moment to sit down as though you were about to get on a ride, because I had the rare privilege of riding the Diamondback in the front seat during the Haunt event at Kings Island. As I stood in line and watched all the zombies, alien creatures and crazed side-walk skidders I pieced together various, seemingly unconnected events that had been nagging me. So make sure you are strapped in securely and come along for the ride. The source of all these seemingly unconnected events is something you won’t like, and will challenge your belief system, and it will all come back around to the station in the end, to the ad above about Herman Cain, Barack Obama, our cultural failures reflected in the Stacy Schuler case and the epic battle between traditional values and progressives. Hold up your hands and enjoy the ride.

I received a call earlier in the day from one of my No Lakota Buddies early while I was in a meeting. Seeing who it was, I took the call. Apparently the Butler County Sheriff caught some kid from Batavia stealing one of our big No Lakota Levy signs from the corner of Liberty Way and Cox. Since we put our signs out last week there has been a barrage of students stealing campaign signs against the levy. This has not just been happening at Lakota, but at Lebanon, and Fairfield in large amounts. Have a look at this link which shows pictures:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/24/radicals-in-lakota-vandals-steal-and-destroy-vote-no-signs/

While we were dealing with massive sign theft over in Lakota I received several reports, one from a very credible source that the journalism teacher at Lakota East, Dean Hume had been bad-mouthing me, and one of the school board candidates openly to his class. Some of the kids came home and reported this and the principal at Lakota East had to be spoken to about the incident. I know some of the kids who take Hume’s class and I angrily inquired about what was going on. I received a series of emails from a parade of students and former students explaining what a great teacher Hume was and how my opinion of Hume being a Walter Lippmann activist type was incorrect. These students went on to explain the merits of how Hume had impacted their lives in so many positive ways. Two of the kids who wrote me I like quite a bit, so I let the issue go and took their word for it. Still, something didn’t seem right about their lack of critical assessment of Hume. Hume certainly crossed the line, but I was happy to leave the issue to the principal at Lakota East to deal with. After all, if I tracked down every comment made against me, I would be perpetually tracking down people and I wouldn’t get a whole lot done. So I simply filed the event away to contemplate later while I rode roller coasters.

I ride roller coasters so much in fact that when my publisher accepted the manuscript to my latest novel, they commented on how intense the action was, and wondered how I could write such a thing. I explained that much of the original manuscript had been sketched out on my hand while riding The Stunt Track at Kings Island, which I road again will thinking about the Hume story at Lakota East. There is something soothing in that catapult launch, and the run through the police cars that gets my blood boiling in a positive direction and organizes my thoughts. The faster the roller coasters, the more clear things become for me. And as for settings, strange creatures, gothic music, and smoke machines actually provide context for the metaphors they represent in the real world. My wife and I grabbed some steak fries from Rivertown and I pondered more of the perplexing quagmires percolating in my mind from the week. I think I like this time of year at Kings Island best simply because they don’t play all the pop music throughout the park. I prefer symphonic pieces most of the time as a musical choice, especially playful pieces themed around horror films.

As I stared through smoke at the dim lights and navigated through hoards of teenagers giggling and screaming within moments of each other, I thought of the most truly terrifying apparition that was behind the entire structure of everything I was concerned with. For there is a unifying factor, an aspect that tied all these individually small situations into a collective problem, and the hint to just how much influence that unifying factor is to my concerns came to me just hours before I held in my hands the steak fries that my wife and I were sharing.

A reporter called me, “Rich, not too many people like you do they?”

“No, and I like it that way,” I replied.

“You like it that way?”

“Yes, because if you are good and fair to people, yet they still don’t like you just because you are asking legitimate questions, it’s because they have something to hide. So the more people who hate me means we’re uncovering things they want to hide and their anger is the mask for which they use to hide it,” I said. “Did you call to tell me that?”

“I received a strange message from someone who didn’t leave their name or number. They were furious that I spoke to you about the school board story.”

I thought about the story that had broken earlier in the week, along with everything else mentioned. You can see the article that started the rift on the Lakota School Board at this ink:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/17/the-joan-powell-school-board-scandal-a-lesson-of-what-not-to-do-at-lakota/

“What else did they say,” I asked.

“They said you weren’t qualified to speak about school board matters and that we shouldn’t talk to you.”

“Well, there’s your answer, it’s one of the school board members themselves. What do you think?”

“You’re the one who gave us the flyer,” the reporter said. “If you hadn’t done that there wouldn’t be a story.”

“So because I’m not a school board member I’m not qualified to look at a flyer from a school board president and see what she’s up to, trying to stack the board in her favor, and therefore the position of the union? So because you interviewed me, they are trying to put pressure on you to not speak to me in the future. Is that how you take it?”

“Sounds that way to me,” the reporter said.

“Well, do you regret talking to me?”

“Hell, no!” the reporter said. “You are a fun guy to talk to. I just thought it was funny is all.”

I laughed. “Well, if they are pissed off, it means I’m doing something right. And before I’m done, there will be a lot more pissed off people, you can count on that. Sounds like mafia tactics to me. What do you think?”

“That’s the first thing I thought of,” the reporter added before we went into another interview for a story being prepared for another article.

What do all these stories have in common? Unions! Radical, manipulative, destructive, socialist unions paid for with our tax money to work against all us at every turn. It is because of the unions that I fully support ISSUE 2. I want to support teachers who elect to remove themselves from union membership. Because what I know about their activity is far scarier than any of the haunted houses at Kings Island or the thrill rides catapulting you into the darkness as you ride them. The teachers unions at their heart are a socialist organization created by enemies of America.

Their work is subtle and has been for years. Even many of the teachers who belong to their organization aren’t aware of the slow cooking employed upon their minds to create a radicalized soldier for progressive causes, and those teachers, because the pay is good, and the benefits are unlike anything in the private sector will swallow whole the message of their parent unions and teach those same radical methods to our children. This doesn’t happen in one school year. It happens over decades and the true intentions are disguised with careful language so not to tip-off the public as to the real aim. But it’s been going on a long, long time. For evidence, feel free to view these links in great detail.

In Ohio the NEA (NATIONAL EDUCATION ASSOCIATION) contributed $1 million to defeating Issue 2 and they are a radical organization. Look at their reading list, shown on their website. These are the books that the NEA wants the teachers you pay for to read. The NEA is the parent union to the OEA (Ohio Education Association) and specific to Lakota the OEA is the parent organization to the LEA (Lakota Education Association.) These books are listed as they appear on the NEA website.

And this week, the NEA announced that it was awarding a $5,000 grant to two Wisconsin teachers for helping create union activists in 1st and 2nd grade students. Have a look for yourself. Here’s a screenshot from the NEA website, before they remove it.

Source article:

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/teachers-union-offered-grant-to-create-activists-out-of-1st-2nd-graders/

What’s happening is through radical union activity and small little rewards like higher wage compensation and benefits, grants and other perks, the radical unions are nudging their teachers to embrace radical ideas camouflaged behind carefully planted smiles and a public image. School boards are constructed to maintain that façade to the public, as the direction of the school boards is then controlled by the OSBA, the Ohio School Board Association who also reads the same types of books. School board members who don’t play nicely are pushed off the board, because the aim of a school board is to achieve public consensus. The game is a very subtle one, and for people who are more interested in watching Dancing with the Stars or picking up a magazine which features Jennifer Aniston’s newest love interest, they probably will think what I’m saying is a bunch of crazy talk. In fact, many school board members and even some superintendents might think so because their thinking is so specialized and focused on a specific task that they fail to see static patterns outside of their own experience.

The reason they can’t see what is right in front of their face is described in that article. That is why they get angry with me, because they are either aware of what I’m saying or they are afraid of what I’m saying and they don’t want to believe it. But what I’m saying is not wrong. The only question is how long does it take for everyone else to learn and accept it so they can change their behavior.

As I looked at all the costumes around Kings Island on the Haunt night I saw that it is the masks that the unions show us. The education institutions themselves are all wearing them and they want you to buy into the product they are selling, care and education for your children with service and smile. But what the larger organizations of union control want are teachers to pay them dues so they can use that money to inflict social change. READ THIS ARTICLE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY ARE AFTER.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/04/24/if-you-vote-for-a-levy-of-any-kind-youre-stupid-the-ten-planks-of-communism/

So it is the masks that we see when dealing with public education, and it is the masks the kids are learning to shape their minds around. The process is so subtle that it happens like a slow cooker, but the results of that stewing process are absolutely evident in the Stacy Schuler trial. I think I am more alarmed at the casual behavior and lack of morality in the kids than I am in a teacher who had sex orgies with 5 of her students while helping the Mason School System pass their tax levy in the fall of 2010.

Behind the masks of these monsters running around Kings Island are simple teenage kids just like many of the customers in the park. The only difference between the customers and the dressed up monsters is the roles they play in the experience. If everyone stripped down to just a swimming suit and put the masks away, we are all the same. It’s the roles we play which differentiate the participants.

I don’t jump or get startled when I go through a haunted house. I enjoy going through them to see what level of imagination the people who build them can come up with, but I don’t allow my mind to suspend my belief system to accept what I’m seeing. However, many students, and parents do, and they are willing participants in the masks of public education which is constructed by the radical elements of the union movement. Those organizations are intent not just to scare our society, like the monsters in a haunted house. They actually want to change society and they are using our tax money to do it.

Oh……the ride is almost over and we’re pulling back into the station. Wasn’t that fun? Do you want t ride again? Well, ride this ride as many times as you’d like. Go back to the beginning and read it again, and again and again, because as we pull into the station to end this ride for the moment we have to study what we learned. Herman Cain understands what is at work behind the scenes and he sought to exploit that hypocrisy with his new ad and I love it! Because the message does not speak to the masks we wear in society, but to the soul behind the mask who knows that everything is an illusion. When the funding structure of an education institution is in jeopardy, seemingly sane people, young and old, who have been carefully trained over many years to believe radical concepts of change implemented by an aggressive teachers union, will flock like insects to protect that funding structure. Kids will steal and vandalize signs. They’ll apologize for their teaches radical behavior, they’ll call up reporters and attempt to gain control of the media, they dress up in the scariest mask they have to frighten you along in a haunted house on a path they have established. They’ll take away busing to “nudge” parents into passing another levy, because the cost of fuel alone exceeds the cost of the tax. They’ll threaten the safety of the community; they’ll attempt to create anxiety over property values, over emergency services, over lack of college opportunities. They’ll do all this to frighten you along in a haunted house of their design.

I can see in Cain’s eye that he’s seen it all and done it all and he is not willing to suspend his beliefs to become frightened. In fact, he’s inviting the thugs, the creeps, the zombies and every political terror imaginable to attempt to scare him with that ad and I absolutely love it! Because what it does is force people to analyze their own behavior and ask the question, why do I believe what I believe. Do I really think that and if so…………..why?

As we pull into the station and you get off this ride, ask yourself, what do you believe, and why do you believe it. Do you choose to allow masked zombies to frighten you because you are bored and want the entertainment? Or do you really believe that they are the monsters they appear to be? Because when you’re ready for the truth, you can join me in line to enjoy the spectacle for the show it is, enjoy having some steak fries in the cool evening air as people relish in the festivities. But you don’t take it too serious because it’s really only a show, and when you understand that, you can then begin to consider the true value of what it costs to put on such a show. Once that happens, a level of truth can finally be explored.

So…………….what’s it gonna’ be. Want to ride again? Go ahead……………………………………………

Before we step out of this car let me share with you a video from 24 years ago just to let you know I am acquainted with what I’m talking about. My wife and I first bought a mobile home instead of doing the usual thing of renting an apartment as our first residence. The idea is we wanted to own our home, not rent it. Every year the trailer park had a huge trick or treat night on Halloween and I loved it. Several hundred kids would come to our residence so I’d set up a haunted house and make kids “earn” their candy. I’d sit in a chair in my living room and make them come and get the candy out of my lap. Under the bowl of candy I had an air hose that I shot at the kids when they took the candy. It was all in fun, except for the smart mouthed girls that I threw out of my house. Some things never change not only on my end, but on the other side as well.

I still do things like this, but it was never as fun as in that mobile home park because our homes after this period of time have always been outside of neighborhoods so I never had that many trick or treaters again. But it’s also fun to see that some things never change and that people behave the same no matter how young or old they are. If I had my wish, I’d ask that everyone in society be like the last kids in that video, where they willingly suspended their beliefs to have a little fun, but they never lose themselves in the act. And when it’s over we all go our separate ways with an appreciation of the show and don’t try and impose change on one another for the act of control. That’s where the line gets crossed and the threat of violence isn’t just in some Halloween fun, but to alter the freedoms and income we are all entitled to enjoy without tyranny.
