Allen High School Spends $60 Million on a New Stadium: The truth about school sports

Keep in mind before I say what will surely infuriate many that I spent much of my previous Friday evening listening to the pre-season football game between my favorite NFL team The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and The Miami Dolphins. I enjoy the combat of a football game. I understand the drama of sporting events. I have known, and currently know many people who memorize sports stats and pour a lot of personal time and energy into sports as their premier entertainment. I know many people who spend their Friday nights going to football games for their local high school in the fall; have block parties in their cul-de-sacs on Saturdays when Ohio State plays Michigan, then tail gate on Sunday down at Paul Brown Stadium for The Cincinnati Bengals. These same people will rattle off statistics of sport players with great conviction, but couldn’t begin to tell you who Rob Portman is–the State of Ohio Senator who has been a potential candidate for Vice-President of The United States. They drink a lot, and take great pride in losing their senses to drunkenness, and in spite of those human faults, I still enjoy the fanfare of sports.

In Texas, as displayed to the outside world quite wonderfully in the film Friday Night Lights, high school football is the centerpiece of small town entertainment, and it does bond the community together in ways that defy logic. I could write books on why this is destructive in that it shows a tendency toward collectivism that is ultimately disparaging, but for the sake of simplicity, let’s just say that small town politics in the state of Texas loves their Friday night football. It’s an obsession really, so much so that tax payers in Allen, Texas passed a bond package with 63.66 percent of the vote from the booming suburb of north Dallas worth $119.4 million dollars, $60 million of which was designated to building a state-of-the-art stadium for their high school football team.

For the kids who play football in Allen they will play under the Friday Night Lights for their community in a stadium that rivals what many of the stadiums for professional teams play in. 8,252 people signed up for season tickets ranging in price from $40 dollars a game to $8 and they plan to sell out several of their games in the 18,000 seat arena in a town that has a population of 84,236, which is smaller than the Lakota School District in Cincinnati. The demand for football in Allen is so intense that 1 out of every 4 people plan to attend football games at the new stadium.

The residents of Allen have a median household income of $100,843, which is about $10,000 more than the wealthy area of Lakota due in large part to all the businesses that are locating to the area because of Texas pro-business attitudes. Many of the jobs that aren’t in your town because of intense regulation and high taxes are probably in Texas or thinking about it currently. And when people have plenty of money in their pocket they tend to be generous by passing tax increases on themselves without a thought of future sustainability. The people of Allen have the money and they wish to spend it on a football stadium for their local high school, and that’s that. This has led to severe criticism from people outside of Allen who don’t understand why the people of that Texas town will spend so much money on a football stadium when the state of education is so poor in America. Well, the answer is rather harsh, but must be understood in order to be truthful about the real nature of support a community has for their local schools when discussions of tax increases arise. People like to watch violence and mayhem. They love to see gladiators on the battlefield punishing other players in a quest to score a point. Those same audiences do not show up to watch some kid take a math test.

All public schools and all large college campuses use their sports programs to drive their funding models for their education institutions. “Jocks” are treated as special in schools because the school acknowledges the gladiators as the life blood of their existence. Without the Friday Night Lights, without football, schools are boring places of history, art, math and science. Only a few kids in each grade class excel in those categories and go on to become esteemed world-wide scientists or mathematicians. Most parents would rather give birth to the next Payton Manning rather than Albert Einstein and it shows in schools by what parents support. In Allen, Taxes they are just being honest about their priorities. They are not functioning from illusion. When it comes down to it, people do not care about educating a bunch of inner city kids on how to bake a cake in home economics. They don’t care if a 1000 nerds score a perfect 2400 on their SAT scores. But they do care if a kid is 6-4 and weighs 280 pounds in his junior year and can play as a guard on the offensive line protecting the team quarterback. In essence, they care about their own entertainment on a Friday Night, because once the game is over, they are back to their own lives looking forward to the next game.

On a typical Saturday during football season most men will sift through the political section of a newspaper and read intently the sports stats from the game on Friday. On Monday morning he will be able to go into his workplace and impress his co-workers with his vast knowledge about the tackles that 6’, 4” 280 pound kid had in Friday’s football game. He might even claim to know the boy’s father hoping that such a revelation will impress his co-workers with is access to celebrity. But nobody sits around the water cooler talking about how a kid from their public school won a spelling competition, or won an academic scholarship to Yale due to academic excellence in high school physics.

Schools are very aware of this leverage they have over the community. Locally, around the Cincinnati area the closest thing we have to the Texas Friday Night Lights experience is Colerain Football. Already, the band leaders in that town are letting it be known that if residents don’t pass a school levy this November that there will be cuts to the football program, and the band that plays for them. They know as school officials that the community cares about sports, but not about the positions of assistant art teachers, so the threat is directed and quite intentional. At Lakota in my home district, after three failed levies, the district cut off its nose to spite its face threatening to hurt the parents of the district by charging players $550 per sport for each player in order to force levy passage which has ended up backfiring. Lakota isn’t Allen, Texas; people are more indifferent to their Friday Night Football. If it’s there, fine, if not, they’ll go to a movie and out to dinner instead. The only parents who really feel passionate about football like they do in Texas are the parents who are hoping their kid wins a scholarship to college which will save them tens of thousands of dollars in college tuition. Lakota took bad advice from the classes the school board attended at Levy University in Columbus, Ohio that the OSBA puts on every year. In that class they learned that to pass tax increases that public transportation and sports are what motivate voters to throw more money at a public school. If those things don’t work, then nothing will. At Lakota, to make up for picking the wrong strategy in winning the hearts of the community, they have had to spend $160,000 on public relations to attempt to win back community support, which they won’t get as long as 1500 kids are being charged $550 to play sports.

Penn State covered up the sex crimes they all knew about because they understood that it was Penn State Football that drove new enrollment, and therefore revenue to their university. It is sports that drive education, not academics. In Allen, Texas at least they aren’t trying to deceive themselves in being so high-brow to not wish for the blood lust of violent impacts under the Friday Night Lights of their new $60 million dollar stadium. Nobody really cares about “education.” This is well-known, it’s just not publicly acknowledged. The people of Allen are not going to pour $60 million dollars into a program to help the poor and needy. They are not going to give it to a bunch of fools who want to build solar panels and wind mills. They are not going to give it to a bunch of socialist teachers who want to save the world with world peace. In polite conversation the tax payers will utter support for such things, but when it comes time to put their money where their mouth is, they spend it on blood, broken bones, and drama on a fourth and goal. Everything else is a waste of time and that is the key to the education funding structure. Without the Friday Night Lights, public education is just another stale experience that could easily be replaced with online classes.

Why Obama Destroyed 40% of American Wealth: Undoing the nation to make daddy proud

It’s not that people like me are picking on President Obama in the same malicious ways that Democrats picked on George Bush Jr. George Bush Sr., or Reagan, Nixon, Ford on down the line. All those Republican presidents had to endure very radical criticism just because they were conservatives from extreme elements of the left. For those old enough to remember, Bill Clinton really took the top off presidential morality in the 90’s, and the radicals who came to his defense became very obvious as to their intentions to undermine traditional America in favor of a progressive America. But under President Obama political economic terrorism has went several steps further than just bickering between Republicans and Democrats. President Obama has been deliberately stealing the wealth of America using the disguise of a recession started during the Bush years, to knock America out of the world superpower bracket.

Under Obama the typical American family has lost 40% of their total wealth. That means the total net worth of the typical American fell from $126,400 to $77,300 from 2007 to 2010. Obama took office in 2009, and once the numbers from 2010 to 2012 come in, it is HIGHLY likely that the loss will be much greater. This should be the top story in every news publication across the country. Much of that 40% loss is in the real estate bubble collapse, the expendable income of Americans paying more for gasoline, therefore charging up their credit card debt, and wage decreases as America has noticeably shifted over a long period of time from a manufacturer nation to a service oriented nation. For those who can see how the dots connect, Obama is the icing on the cake enemies of American imperialism utilized in order to destroy the power of The United States the world over.

That is not a conspiracy, it’s a fact. Obama was a created candidate who was able to hide behind his race to openly dismantle the American economy in a plan hatched many years ago culminating during the current presidential term. If you have ever had the misfortune of having to put a dog to “sleep” you’ll understand what I’m about to say next. Obama is that gentle hand that pets America while it dies trying to reassure the dying nation that it will all be OK.

But it won’t be OK. America is being killed by radical fundamentalists. When a president promotes oil drilling in Brazil and other places while denying the same permits in The United States advocating that the oil companies are greedy and evil the intent is clear. The stonewalling of the Keystone Pipeline inciting environmental concerns while committing $35 billion tax payer dollars in loans to clean energy companies that have all lost money–about 35 percent to solar companies like Solyndra which alone lost over $500 million dollars. Not only has America lost the money, but it doesn’t have the technology it was supposed to generate do to the commitment to failure. The opportunity cost to the nation has been much greater than $35 billion dollars. The president’s commitment to “clean energy” is a big loser financially, but is part of the plan to distract Americans too busy to pay attention to world geography. Once Americans realize what has happened to them, it will be too late, just like the poor dog that has had the poison injected into its body. As of now the body is still alive, it can blink, lick its lips and look up at the kind hand that pats its head and tells it everything will be OK. But death will come once the needle is injected, and that is what has happened during Barack Obama’s term.

Obama will justify his actions as being good for the “global” community. He justifies in his mind that Americans have too much and they deserve to feel a little pain. Since Obama does not understand money, he believes that money is finite. He believes that in order to defeat American colonialism and fulfill the “Dreams of his Father,” that he must take the money America stole from the rest of the world and give it back to the world. His ignorance is that money is not finite, but is created. He can take all the wealth of America and give it to Kenya, and without the proper political philosophy he will create the situation that his mentor Karl Marx fought against—a class system where very few control all the money giving out only what they please. Within a couple of generations Kenya would waste all the money, because they do not understand how to make it. Taking money from one place and giving it to another is theft done through financial management under coercion. Money cannot give a nation value. Only a valuable philosophy can do that.

Anti colonialism is a very prevalent trait in the world outside of American borders. It is easy for such people who do not understand the basics of economics to be angry at America for all the wealth they have, because they don’t understand that it was capitalism that made the wealth. Wealth alone does not come from gold dug out of the ground or silver traded in coins, but from innovation and manufacture.

Anti colonialists like Obama adopted socialism and communism because that was the political philosophy of America’s enemies. They did not adopt it out of practicality. Their dedication to political philosophy has as much logic as one typically picks their favorite NFL football team. Most NFL fans pick the team that is from their hometown regardless of performance. They do not pick the best team in the NFL to root for, but the team that is close to their homes. For those who are jealous of America’s success they adopted communism, the opposite of capitalism. This is why Obama is a communist, publically showing elements of hard Marxism and socialism because his heroes–like his father, Frank Marshall Davis, and Bill Ayers are all anti colonialists adhering to similar beliefs.

Americans do not see Obama’s intentions because they fail to understand that Obama is so sinister to actually plot the end of their existence in the same fashion as we might put a dog to sleep. The dog does not know what we plan for it while we put it in the car to take it to the vet clinic for one last ride. The dog assumes we are going to fix it, and that life will go on. But we know the dog is beyond help, and that the only real option is to put the dog to sleep.

Obama may actually like America to some extent. I think he likes Chicago, and American sports. I think he enjoys the plush life the American presidency has given him. But he knows that the world has plotted the end of America for a long time, and the most “humane” thing he can do to end it, is to usher America to sleep with his soothing voice and a destroyed economy which stops the blood from flowing quietly without violence.

Under Obama’s economic terrorism, America as a superpower may be in jeopardy as early as 2014. America as the country we are now will not survive until 2016. The economic destruction is intentional and designed to end the reach of American imperialism the world over. Obama, the global citizen, will be known as the president who ended America, but he does not care. He was born in Hawaii and mentored by radical socialists, mentored by a card-carrying communist, raised in Malaysia where he attended public school encountering the ideas of anti-American colonialism. And his real father the Kenyan who fought against English colonialism who Obama has only met a few times in his life, is a primary influence in the President’s world view. The sum of all these elements mean President Obama is an extreme radical who currently occupies The White House and he wants the death of imperial America, which for the rest of us means an end to our way of life.

The reason the media does not focus on the 40% decline in American wealth is because many in of those media personalities received their education in colleges taught by communist professors who sympathize with anti-colonialism beliefs, so they are behind Obama for the most part—he is their guy. They do not know as of now what America will look like dismantled, because they take many of the elements of American civilization for granted. They do not know what it means to destroy America, they just believe that there should be changes, because they have heard the battle cry all their lives. But the cry comes from people who want America gone, and they will do anything to make it happen. This is what Barack Obama’s mission as President of the United States is, to end America as a world power. It is not a secret and in just four short years he has managed to rob from every tax paying American much of their net worth through economic terrorism. 4 more years of the same behavior will destroy what 200 years built. Obama will be remembered as a terrorist, but that won’t matter to him, because he’ll be a hero in Malaysia, China, Russia, Brazil, Argentina, and Kenya, where the dreams of his father started, and he carried out. As a world citizen he’ll be a hero for destroying American imperialism which is much more valuable to him, than the seat of the Oval Office.

These are the differences between this president and presidents of the past. Most of the failures of past presidents are due to failed political philosophy. Those presidents wanted what’s best for America in their view of obtaining it. But Obama is different. He doesn’t want America to succeed at all, he wants failure, and he is doing everything he can to make it happen. That is why Obama is a special case, and why the fight with him over the economy is not one of personal politics. It’s a fight for survival, because he has the needle for our end in his hand and he intends to use it.

Ronde Barber Will Be Back: Why schools should take pay cuts to avoid tax levies

Ok, I’m happy………………..my favorite football team on the face of the planet has managed to secure a 16th season from their future Hall of Famer, Ronde Barber. I was concerned after the Buc’s picked up Eric Wright, that Barber might retire, or that he might not want to play for Greg Schiano who will be Barber’s fourth head coach for the same team over his career. But Ronde has agreed to terms that will allow him to return for a one year deal to help the Buccaneers bring back to life a defense that was epic under the schemes of the great Monte Kiffin.

The offseason moves made by the Glazer family, who own the Bucs have been impressive so far on paper. I think they did the right thing to hire the right kind of guy in Greg Schiano from Rutgers. It is very difficult to walk in the footsteps of coaches like Tony Dungy and Jon Gruden, but the Glazers interviewed a lot of coaches before settling on Schiano. After making that hire they proceeded to hire a completely new coaching staff and picked up some key free agents.

It might seem strange to some who read here every day to understand why I enjoy the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so much. Well, aside from my love of pirates, the Buccaneers have a long history of innovation and thinking outside the box for a sports franchise, and even when they lose, most of the time they are exciting to watch.

The Glazer family operates their franchise from the front of the train. If you read here often you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, then CLICK HERE to learn what I mean. It is a scary place to be at the front of the train, and sometimes you pick the wrong track, which is what happened when the Buc’s committed so much in Raheem Morris, who was a good coach, but had lost the team halfway through last season. But that doesn’t mean everything Raheem did was bad. He went out and found a lot of good talent, by thinking outside the box, and those players are now gathered in one place. What they lacked was leadership, which Raheem could not bring to the table unfortunately, I think because of his youth.

So the Glazers rather than overreacting from the back of the train and spending a lot of money on a quarterback to save the day, like a Payton Manning, or a Bret Farve type, stuck with their players and decided to invest in leadership instead of players. The Glazers chose to go against the knee jerk reaction of the status quo by throwing players at the wall and hoping they stick and instead found leaders who think at the front of the train.

That kind of ownership is what makes the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a quality organization that I have enjoyed for over two decades now. CLICK HERE TO SEE MY PREVIOUS ARTICLES. That’s the kind of mentality that brought about one of the greatest defenses to ever play football lead by Warren Sapp in the late 90’s, and what I have seen the Glazers trying to duplicate since, without falling into the grove of complacency.

It has been difficult for Tampa Bay to retain their identity after Monte Kiffin left to help coach with his son Lane. But Tampa had to deal with that problem sooner or later, and they have tried to find the right personnel who will help them regain that level of play.

The Bucs have a lot of great young players and statistically, they should be one of the best teams on any football field. But it takes more than just players to achieve greatness. Greatness is more than just throwing and catching footballs. Or running a football. Or stopping someone from doing those things against you. Greatness is in the heart, it’s at the front of the train of thought. It’s in the drive to always become better. And for young players to see greatness, they need to be around it, so they can see what it’s supposed to look like.

In Tampa Bay the Buccaneers organization under the Glazer family has seen many players retire as Buc players, notably, Derrick Brooks, Mike Alstott, and now Ronde Barber, and each of those players late in their careers took pay concessions in order to stay with the Bucs, so the organization could afford to keep them around. Ronde if he really wanted to could most likely double his price on the open free agency market, but Ronde like Brooks and Alstott, even John Lynch before he suffered a serious neck injury and Warren Sapp just before going to the Raiders as a free agent were willing to take significant cuts in pay to stay with the Bucs. This is how so much veteran leadership has been able to stay with Tampa over the years, and why it is such a relief to see that Ronde is going to stay one more year, so that the young Buc players can learn from him.

The people I might sit at the bar in Chili’s with on a Sunday afternoon watching football understand the economics of Ronde’s decision. They also understand that Payton Manning couldn’t stay with the Colts because the price tag to keep Payton was simply too great. Around the bar over beer, nacho’s and cheese dip, people understand that sports teams can’t afford to pay $20 million dollars for a player that might not play a lot and is likely to end up hurt before the end of the season, so they often cut their losses unless the player is willing to take major cuts in pay.

But in the next conversation with the same group of people, they will say that teachers and school administrators should be paid an infinite sum of money never to be capped off. Never to end. They will say that it’s OK for a school system to operate with a top-heavy payroll and that if more money is needed to balance the budget, then taxes should be increased.

Why are people smart about sports, but not about education—or government? I have a lot of theories, but for now it’s just an observation to consider. When I say that a school system, or a public service that charges taxpayers for their service requires more money, I wonder how many of those employees at the top of their pay scale would be willing to do as Ronde Barber has done so he could stay with his team, and take a cut in pay. To help his team out with leadership so he can play another year with the group he has known and loved for years. Or should he betray his fans, and his employers the way Labron James did in Cleveland, and just go for the big money and tell everyone else to go to hell.

One of the reasons I like the Buccaneers as an organization is because of players like Ronde Barber. There is no question as to where his loyalty is, or what his intentions are. And because he is a straight shooter he has a lot of leadership to provide the young talent who need someone to look up to for guidance. It’s too bad that people like Ronde Barber are so few and far between. I can only wish for a world that had more people like him, who put loyalty before a payday, and honor before ease of gain, because if more were like him, it’s likely that the world would be a much better place. School levies wouldn’t be required, politics wouldn’t be so dirty, and people would mean what they say.

But since there aren’t many people like Ronde Barber in the world, I will enjoy the only one I know of on Sunday afternoons as he plays at Raymond James Stadium for one more year, and thank God he is still there. Because someone must pass on the torch, and it’s a veteran like Barber who has the potential to lead a rag-tag team of youngsters into the next decade of domination because it’s leadership that does such things and leadership exists at the front of the train, not in the size of the paycheck.

Clint Eastwood: It’s Halftime in America

Ok, it’s official, this is my favorite Superbowl commercial of 2012. Clint Eastwood on behalf of Chrysler, proclaimed that America isn’t done, that it’s only halftime and there is time to come back and win. I loved the metaphor, and thought it was well said–and stylish.

As for the hate and blame that is going on, I agree. When all the stupid people get out-of-the-way, America can start winning again.

I’m ready, how about you?

Who is Roger Tallblocke: UK Police seize computers from a blogger–America’s future in action

Want a sneak peek into the future of socialism in America? England is about 20 years ahead of the United States politically and just a few short days ago police raided a bloggers home in the United Kingdom and confiscated his computers because he wrote about an issue called Climategate. You can read about that story here:

http://wattsupwiththat.com/2011/12/14/uk-police-seize-computers-of-skeptic-in-england/

After the police took Roger Tallbloke’s computers from his home after knocking on his door with a search warrant and arriving with 6 officers, they gathered up his computers and later informed him that he was not a suspect of anything. They would clone his computer hard drives and return them to him. Isn’t that nice?

http://tallbloke.wordpress.com/2011/12/14/tallbloke-towers-raided-many-computers-taken/#comment-10917

Tallblocke is a blogger who covers a lot of science information and apparently the greenie weenies of Europe do not like the facts he’s putting out, so they came up with a search warrant, took his computers and harassed him to the furthest extent of their laws. This story is proof that if there are laws on the books that allow for law enforcement to impose itself upon a population, then they certainly will. England has never enjoyed the kind of freedoms that we have in America, so this kind of behavior may not seem too appalling to most Europeans but they certainly are to those of us who live in America. And we must be cautious of any politician who professes that they wish to make America more like Europe, because what happened to Roger Tallblocke is not acceptable under any circumstances, and is the destination if America follows.

Yet that is what is going on in America. Politicians seem to desire with great lust to send us all into European care once again after leaving that socially stagnate, pretentious cesspool over 200 years ago to fight for freedom, become the most dominant economic powerhouse on the planet with a relatively small country, only to give all that back again and join the European Union under the political affiliation of socialism, because in England the Labour Party is in essence the representative of Socialist International. The recent NDAA Act that passed the American Senate overwhelmingly to allow the military and police to apprehend Americans indefinitely comes from the same mentality of European law.

It is the political platform of the Labour Party to endorse all the “green initiatives” and hijacked sciences as a way to spread socialism to every country on earth. That is their goal. And there are many politicians addicted to power who seek to make a living as part of the political ruling class who openly embrace socialism as the wave of the future. It doesn’t matter to those power-hungry looters that socialism stagnates economic growth and limits the spirit of its people into something that is best resembled in history by The Dark Ages. The ruling class will always have money, so the condition of the rest of society is a trivial matter that they don’t consider.

In America our academic types are notorious for their desire to return to the motherland of Europe, to the age of Victorians. Barack Obama is one of those academic types. It is easy to see how his mind works as he travels extensively and quite elegantly on the tax payer dime to do very little as a manager of the country’s affairs simply to campaign for his next election. His wife has shown a tendency to embrace the role of a queen. Her vacations are extravagant and her personal staff is exquisite.

By the way, Socialist International is currently the dominate government in Spain. Check out the map of countries that are under the influence of that particular group.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/12/02/socialist-international-bringing-an-end-to-america-as-we-know-it-by-design/

America was never supposed to be a land where politicians sought to make a living in politics. America was never supposed to be a land where lawyers who spent a lot of money on becoming a lawyer and failed in private practice used public office to enrich themselves by writing laws that nobody understood so they would be required to translate those obscure laws. America was meant to have politicians who served a term or two and would then retire back to the world from which they came turning over the reins of government to someone else who would sacrifice their time and wisdom to a term of public service.

I was recently at an event with John Kasich and I spoke with people there who have put their names on some bold legislation that many Rhino Republicans have deemed will put an end to John Kasich’s political career. To those who say such things I say, “What makes you think John Kasich as governor of Ohio wishes to run for governor again? Why would he? I wouldn’t.” The very presumption that a politician should have a “career” in politics is the first and most devastating black flag that an electorate should consider when evaluating a potential candidate. NO POLITICIAN should seek an office to become wealthy, secure, or even use it as a networking tool as a lobbyist once their term is done. Such people are just low quality citizens who function in only one service, and that is machine politics. And machine politics does not want a representative republic that votes members out every election cycle. Machine politics desires candidates that can hold their seats so one party can dominate another party in what becomes something more reminiscent of a football game, not a meeting of logic and philosophy.
Machine politics on both sides is attracted to socialism because in socialism there is a place for a ruling elite. Obama clearly sees himself this way, and most members of the House and Senate do as well. Most academics feel that they are the illuminated populace that Plato spoke about in The Republic and it is they who must use their minds to rule the masses. So socialism is for these types, which are as numerous as the stars in a desert sky.

That is the reason the politicians are attempting to push American in the direction of Europe. They desire to keep their power indefinitely so that they are sheltered from the real world with an insulation of invented nobility. That future is not shrouded in secrecy, with unknown elements. We know how socialism has affected other countries, and they are not nearly as prosperous as the United States has been. There is no mystery as to that destination and we are headed there.

Recently the school in my community hired a new superintendent who specializes in Global Education. She promoted this benefit to the residents of our community as though it were a positive thing. But what it really means is that she plans to continue a stronger agenda of teaching socialism in our public schools so that the children we send to her will learn and be ready for the world of tomorrow that politicians like Obama are giving us, by handing America back to Europe like a child who ran away from home and was caught again by the authorities to be dropped back off to their mother to be punished for their youthful rebellion.

With the passage of NDAA, Net Neutrality, Health Care, more commitments to Medicare and the money eating public education system, America will very soon become the place where a simple blogger will receive a visit from the police to have their possessions confiscated, analyzed, and returned only by the discretion of the police state. And we will have this lack of freedom for the simple reason that the politicians we elected into service did not understand the Constitution of the United States and instead sought European refuge for a fruitful career as a ruling elite.

The Empire of Ultraterrestrials: Enemies from a Parallel Universe

When the observation is made and the question is asked, “Why are people so stupid,” I can look at the history of the human being and speculate as to why they behave the way they do, and I can present evidence as to what is happening. The question of “why” does not get answered completely when only the factors of the known world are considered. So trying to explain the conditions of our observable world and all the foolishness witnessed with factors that can be seen and so far catalogued has fallen short of a proper explanation. This is how I became interested in studies of Fortean observations, cryptozoology, and paranormal science and to me; John Keel has done some of the best work in these fields as a journalist that I have run in to. Keel just recently passed away and left behind a body of work that is quite interesting in regard to those studies. Like a lot of people who spend a considerable, and imbalanced amount of time on the strange and paranormal, Keel’s later work reflects a bit of eccentricity that was not present in what I think is the best book ever written on these topics called The Mothman Prophecies, which was made into the popular Richard Gere film. You can see John Keel here in an early interview with David Letterman discussing his field of study.

A college professor who was trying to bring a film version of my novel The Symposium of Justice to reality put me on to Keel about 6 years ago. “You’d love Keel. Your book reminds me of his work.” So I started reading Keel and my family began some paranormal investigations of our own, going into the deep dark places of known haunted locations to examine for ourselves the mysteries behind paranormal activity. You can see some of those adventures in this short collection my oldest daughter put together back then.

In all our adventures I have never seen anything obvious to say that it was a ghost that we saw while we were looking for them. We did see a UFO which we chased down with our car only to have it disappear within seconds. It wasn’t just an illusion, since 5 of us were in the car with me driving like a madman to catch up to it. We did see and experience a “shadow man,” we experienced the battery loss associated with paranormal presence in our flashlights and cameras, but never saw anything conclusive that we could get on film. We captured a few obscure things, but nothing that was definitive, which seems to be the case with most paranormal studies. Seldom is any evidence conclusive. Most of our adventures were to specifically hunt down some of the “bigfoot” phenomena that are common to eastern Ohio, or even a Mothman. We never saw directly the thing we were seeking in all our investigations.

Keel had an interesting explanation for this case.He said in his writing that what was happening was a species of undocumented humanoid called ultraterrestrials, a competing race within the human race who acted as tricksters and could present images to the human mind that the mind was prepared to see, were hard at work on a mysterious task. If a person went hunting for a big foot, they’d see a big foot. If a person wanted to see an angel, they might see a mothman, or the Virgin Mary. If a person wants to see green men from another planet, then they may be visited by those green men. And the reason I never saw anything directly, except for small little ripples of disturbances over time and space is because I’m too analytical to buy what those ultraterrestrials are trying to sell me.

Keel’s explanation of ultraterrestials in The Mothman Prophecies offered a whole host of explanations that are scientific in nature toward the true nature of “demons” voodoo magic and even good luck angels. During Keel’s investigations chronicled with great diligence in The Mothman Prophecies it appears the government is very much aware of these ultraterrestrials and actually has a relationship with them. This relationship has been articulated in fun films like The Men in Black and in Point Pleasant, West Virginia every September during the Mothman Festival, where the whole town gets together to celebrate the mysterious occurrences that terrorized that town in the late 1960’s. But the actual relationship is quite serious if examined at face value. After all, we think we are dealing with a reality that contains all the elements of our known visual spectrum, but in our studies of quantum mechanics, we are learning that there is a great deal that we can’t see, and it appears that we share our space with many influences in our present reality.

The best scientific explanation I have heard to explain the existence of Keel’s ultraterrestrials is in the theory of parallel universes, as shown in this History Channel Universe documentary. It would appear that these ultraterrestrials are inhabitants of a Type 3 Parallel Universe and they have figured out how to tap into our reality to use our resources for the benefit of their cultures in their universe’s reality.

If those ultraterrestrials are exact copies of us in another reality, it is entirely conceivable that those copies of ourselves living in that reality are purposely taking advantage of our blindness to an aim we can only hypothesize about. My daughter and I speculated about this from a hilltop campsite close to a haunted hot spot in eastern Ohio under a full moon a few years back. I suggested that maybe the logic of ultraterrestrials interference with our world has an equal and opposite type of outcome, where a negative in our universe equals a positive in their universe, and if these ultraterrestrials are copies of ourselves then don’t we in some way benefit from our own misery if considered from a multi-verse perspective where all copies of our personalities are united in a collective body serving the mysteries of that unification? We may suffer in the here-and-now, but our ultraterrestrial copies are having wondrous success.

This might also account for “LUCK” in our present world, when mysteriously good things happen to us when by all calculations peril should occur. This might be because without understanding how, we bring bad fortune to our ultraterrestrial counterparts in the Type Three Parallel Universe, so their misery equates to our benefit.

As crazy as much of this may sound, the reason for my quest into these strange worlds was for an answer to why the nature of our current existence is so insanely foolish. For instance, why is it considered fashionable to be a fool, or to become drunk, or less than average in some way? Why do we celebrate the weak and chastise the strong if not to appease some ultraterrestrial gods in another dimension? When I speak to young people none of them take pride in how much they know, but it’s in what they don’t know, or how drunk they became on a Friday night. Women are put on a pedestal for making themselves slaves to sexual fulfillment and bringing children into the world without fathers to help create strong family foundations. It almost feels as though the foolish addiction to altruism and socialism is so that the beings in another parallel universe can live with capitalism and strong individual value.

I told my daughters on some of those haunted adventures that I am not willing to sacrifice my life one bit even to a copy of myself in a parallel universe. I encouraged them to do the same, to live for themselves and if there are ultraterestrials creating around us these strange events where Bigfoots, and Lockness monsters jump in and out of our reality from these other universe’s that intersect with our own reality and that strange whisper in our ears that come when sleep is about to come on is not some demon from hell, but a tempter of ourselves from an ultraterrestrial being that seeks to profit from our misery, and they should not listen. Because no other conclusion can be made when drunkenness is praised, and stupidity is rewarded, but to accept that enemies of our existence reside outside of our present reality to build an empire within their universe by consuming the resources of our own to do it.

Does our government have a deal with these beings to occasionally throw us a bone of good luck with a sacrifice on their end? Perhaps.This may be the origin of the sacrifice rituals that have permeated our planting cultures all during recorded history and has been replaced in the modern age with religious communion rituals and altruism surrounding the “green movement.” There is no way to know for sure with the lack of evidence we currently have, but speculation as to why people like Jerry Sandusky from Penn State have been allowed to exist and the massive amounts of sex trading that goes on in the world must have some logical conclusion, because no God that I learned about in Sunday School would allow evil to thrive so openly unless somewhere with someone, there was a benefit. And that someone seems to be in this species of ultraterrestrials who live outside our reality. That leads to my next question which I will get to the bottom of eventually, who are these Men in Black, and how are they connected to our current government? Time will tell, and along the way we will have marvelous adventures in discovering these facts, but I am not willing to sacrifice any of myself so that someone else can benefit in another city, another state, another country or another universe. I expect competition to prove the victor and it starts by recognizing the fact that there is more to this puppet show of living than we are seeing even in the most extreme versions of our conspiracy theories. Because the truth does not exist in our visual spectrum, but outside of it, at a quantum level hidden in the mysteries of the 11 dimensions, and we have enemies who reside there to bring us misery with whispers in the wind and at the nightmares that come with sleep. And sometimes we go to them willingly by pursuing those demons at the bottom of a wine glass, or that overdose of a drug to gain that so-called moment of elation that comes from intoxication, but leaves our minds open and vulnerable to the empires of invisibility.

Institutional Failure: Sex, Cover-ups and Penn State

To begin to wrap your mind around the Penn State scandal involving Jerry Sandusky the defensive coordinator of Penn State and the cover-up participated in by the university, I’d refer you to the article link below for a foundation understanding to the sex trade industry that is a global problem and is participated in by a majority of our population. It is so wide-spread that you dear readers are also probably guilty to some extent.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/03/20/sex-trade-in-rio-the-world-and-motivations-behind-eyes-wide-shut/

It should come as no shock that Jerry Sandusky was engaging in such behavior out in the open and using some of the children of the Second Mile Foundation for his own sexual pleasure and prostituting them out to rich donors of the university. If you understand that such things are happening right out in the open, yet do nothing to change it, you are one of the millions who “chose” not to see and are guilty of serious crimes that cannot be forgiven in church on Sunday’s. The pain of this action is that when we are finally forced to look at something that is very painful, the result can be tragically life shattering. In the Penn State case, the university relies so intensely on the football program to recruit new students to their university that they put a blind eye to the conduct of its officials. This happened at Ohio State as well. See my article on that unfortunate situation here, where I use clips from a movie to explain the problem of university politics and public perception.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/03/10/jim-tressel-john-kasich-speak-from-the-fires-of-columbus/

Specific to the Penn State Program, and just how sinister the situation truly is, listen to Scott Sloan and Tracy Jones of 700 WLW talk about the “time line” of the scandal, and who knew what and when they knew it. Also listen to one of the students who participated in the riots at Penn State when it was announced that the iconic Joe Paterno was fired from his long coveted position.

You can see here the kind of rioting that was going on at Penn State, which that student from the broadcast played a part. Scientifically speaking, it is interesting to examine the tribal nature of these students in their acts of violence, triggered by the announcement that Paterno had in fact been terminated.

It is amazing that these students had such a reaction, and seem to care nothing for the children who were raped and abused by the long arm of cover-up perpetrated by the very popular football program’s pedophile assistant coach and his co-workers.

But this is not specific to Penn State, although it’s one of the worst we’ve come along in quite some time. This is a case of institutional failure precipitated by a focus on sacrificing the individual identity of the participants for the sum of the collective life of the institution.

As mentioned, Ohio State just went though this, although at a lower level of offense. Public schools too are prone to such scandals. Within 15 miles of my home over three very large public school districts had similar scandals that were successfully covered-up to protect the integrity of the institution. The Mason School System had a cover-up in regard to the Stacy Schuler case.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/02/06/who-is-stacy-schuler-reading-between-the-lines/

Lakota just had a similar string of scandals that were completely suppressed by the institution.

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

And Fairfield City Schools had to be investigated by the FBI involving their school board and a private businessman, which is summed up in this article wrapping all three scandals into one abridgment.

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/2011/10/29/the-tragedy-of-stacy-schuler-the-real-crime-is-still-under-the-rug/

So why do these crimes go unchecked? Why are these things allowed to happen? Well, it’s because our society has been taught, and encouraged to embrace collectivism as an ultimate salvation when in our hearts we desire freedom. This creates a duality in our natures that is always seeking to balance itself. We may use charity to satisfy our collective desire for acceptance, then to pay homage to our individuality we may cater to the dirty sex of our inner desires to bring balance to our lives. The trouble is that our individual natures are applied toward the wrong outlets, and this creates these scandals.

The individual will always seek to obtain what it desires. But due to our collective attempts in social respects we push our deepest darkest desires into the murky corners of our reality. We cheat on our spouses, we embark on pornographic journeys, and even the worst of us do what Sandusky and Schuler engaged in. The more embedded the individual is into a system where the individual is suppressed, the worse these crimes are.

So it is the fault of the institutions themselves. It is the false perception that the individual exists for the institution when in fact the institution exists for the individual. If the institution does not serve the needs of individuality and freedom, then it can be said to be corrupt.

Institutions like Penn State, or Ohio State or even Lakota and Mason use football and other sports to unite the collective minds of their benefactors, and once intimate with the institutional system, individuals have shown that they are prone to ignore overwhelming evidence of impropriety so that their collective identities associated with the institution can be preserved. It is not uncommon for a normal American male to know the sports statistics of their favorite sports player, even if the player is only a high school or college football player, than to know the specific qualities of their own children, because the clueless father is in service to the institution instead of himself. And in order to rectify his loss in individual needs, he seeks it in sexual depravity. This is an endemic problem and is most of the reason why cover-ups continue in large programs like Penn State, because many people know they too are guilty of similar acts not just in action, but in thought, and they are therefore not in a position to cast judgment. They are slaves to the institutions which control them, even if passively with their alma mater sweatshirt. (By the way, do you know what alma mater means? (Latin: “nourishing mother”),

I view such people simply as slaves. I would not trade one second of my independence with them for financial security which is the reason many of them trade their freedom away in the first place. I would actively seek to bring down and destroy any institution that assists in covering up such impropriety as seen at Penn State, and I’d do it without sorrow. If the institution does not serve the individual needs of the participants, then it is bad and should be dismantled. Because always, if you lift up the rug, you will find the kind of activity engaged in at Penn State. Such crimes are endemic to all institutions, every single one. It doesn’t matter if it’s a college, a labor union, a government, or even military activity, if the individual is crushed to serve the institution, then the institution is evil. There is no mediation in such a statement. See this article for more evidence:

https://overmanwarrior.wordpress.com/tag/right-to-work/

The results of a crushed spirit is sexual deprivation and broken individuals who aren’t fit to lead their own families, which then breed a society of lost children who will sign up to attend the college of their fathers and mothers to pay homage to the Gods of college football like Joe Paterno, and when that God falls, those individuals will be lost and will seek to destroy the threats to their collective society, because they have lost their ability to think within their assimilation into institutional control, and riots will follow as the only measure to redeem themselves from the lost identity they discover upon learning that the institution has failed them.

Finally, for more evidence of this tragedy in various degrees view these articles for yourself, and examine the contents carefully, than consider where in the scheme of things your mind falls. Because in the end, only you can save yourself from the forces that seek to corrupt your minds.

If you know something is wrong and you fail to act, you are at fault also, and the people at Penn State are all just a little bit guilty of putting on the blinders for the thrill of a victory in the games of Saturday and an alliance to the institutions of collectivism.
