Who Could Blame Matt Bevin: Notes from Lebanon and Talawanda after the election

I don’t blame Matt Bevin at all for not conceding the governor election in Kentucky to the teacher’s union boot licker Andy Breshear. Knowing what I do about the political left and their mechanisms of power and manipulation, it would not surprise me that more than 10,000 dead people and illegal aliens voted in Lexington and Louisville putting the Democrat over the top in that election. I always assume that there will be a little voter fraud, and that Republicans must have an even greater margin of victory to guard against it. But in Bevin’s case, why not challenge the election? The history is certainly there to question those results, so why not? Its not about being a sore loser, its about playing to win, which is a big difference. Republicans need to be doing more than that not just to win political races, but to preserve the American Constitution which is very much under attack. To understand why, just look toward the impeachment case against President Trump and how many media partners have linked up with the radicals to advance a story of nothing because they can’t win an election honestly. That behavior is no different than the teacher’s unions which went up against Bevin, and certainly against many of us in local elections as pointed out by friends of mine shown below.

The following two reports come from longtime friends of mine who were fighting education issues in their communities and were overcome for various reasons. The notes they sent me communicate their paint accurately. The first one is from Lebanon where the teacher’s union-built school board threatened to take away several tax payer funded programs essentially to create the pay scale shown below. All the levy in Lebanon was about was giving the teacher’s union a pay increase. The author of this note used to be a school board member herself, and she knows very well what is really going on in public education.  (Who is saying teachers aren’t well paid?)

We lost because the union campaigned in the classrooms. They threatened all kinds of cuts and fees for extra curriculars e.g. sports, band, plays etc. two high school boys told me they threatened $1,000.00 for football and band or maybe cutting them entirely. When I read the teacher’s union contract, I realized they wouldn’t cut anything because too many were making too much money participating in these after school fun and games projects. The NEA is a racquet organization no different than the Mafia. They threaten retaliation if the levies fail. The sad part is they claim high taxes are “for the children.” Nothing could be further from the truth. We have teachers making over $94,000.00 with better benefits than most corporate executives. Their contract is for 184 days, but they get ten sick days and three personal days off. They have many days off for various holidays and “ breaks.” They have planning periods, work one half day on Wednesday’s for their union meetings, paid extra for many normal duties. Former classroom teachers become superintendents. That means the union is negotiating with a union sympathizer. Homeowners don’t have a prayer. The board is selected by the union. Read the questionnaire that they send to candidates. The teacher’s campaign in the classroom the union agenda. Everyone needs to read the communist agenda that is passed at the annual NEA convention.

This second note comes out of the Talawanda school district and communicates the results of the school board members who eventually won. Like Lakota, they were trying to get conservatives elected to the board but fell short. It’s a tough gig in an off-year election. If Trump had been on the ballot, it would have been a larger turnout, but it is what it is. Voters need to understand the game so that they can define what victories need to look like. The teacher’s unions know their business, its to get bigger pay increases and to teach the next generation about communism and an overthrow of the American Constitution. For conservatives the parameters of victory is to stop that.

Rich,

Well, the liberal machine in Oxford beat us. We now have an all liberal board that will consist of:
2 present/retired Miami University Professors (don’t know for sure but appears they still have some association with the university)

1 current Sr. Director of Miami University Advancement Finance & Business Services
1 retired Talawanda Elementary Principal (prior teacher) that currently does educational curriculum consulting

1 retired educator/teacher …unsure of all locations but retired from Butler Tech [This current board member, Patrick Meade also doesn’t say the Pledge of Allegiance at board meetings, he simply stands and often glances around the audience during the pledge]

Thinking “the machine” over, its tough to figure out how to “break it”. Since Miami Univ. is a strong presence, they all have each others emails, the Teachers Union backed ’em so again they have their emails and most of the liberals run things in Oxford like the Sr. Center, League of Women Voters, Oxford Community Art Center, the Empty Bowls program, etc. In addition there is a HUGE base of the retired liberals from the University & School district. SO…I figure the liberals have the strong networking and many opportunities over & over to spread their word. VERSUS….the conservatives that are spread around Oxford but mainly based out in the surrounding townships with miles between their farms and small communities.

Sad but a fact of life.

Our conservative friends are holding our heads high, staying out of the fray and moving forward. Ha – using the post puller to take out large sign posts has been good for the soul.

We’ll be regrouping soon.

I was reminded how out of touch most people are from these issues when I was at a birthday party over the weekend before the election. Out of the many adults there, most from Lakota, they just didn’t have the bandwidth to even contemplate the important issues at hand. They were worried about things like the cake melting and who was going to win Fantasy Football that day. They didn’t have time to think about teacher’s unions wanting to ruin the minds of our children and destroying the American Constitution while robbing taxpayers blind to do so. They just want busing for their kids so they don’t have to drive them to school. That is certainly the understanding of the radicals from the left which have infiltrated every public school with an ideology of socialism and anti-American propaganda paid for by all of us. Most voters just aren’t willing to understand the game, because they don’t have time to play it. That’s how the teacher’s unions and their minions on the school boards win. Because nobody has the time or money to stand up to them. Or the willingness to endure public scandal which they always threaten using our own children as shields for their own protection.

Bevin should fight back on the election just as Trump should fight back against the impeachment inquiries, and the rest of us should fight back in our own ways with the same vigor. Its not worth getting along and playing nice if Republicans are going to lose. Winning should be the top priority and I would say to that, win any way possible. Forget about playing fair, the opposition certainly doesn’t. When the enemy accuses us of unethical behavior, which gets thrown at Trump all the time, what they are mad at really is that they have set up the rules of the game to favor themselves. However, they need all of us “nice” Republicans to play nice and follow those rules, just as they break them at every turn. Their anger these days at Trump, Bevin and the rest of us in the trenches fighting these little local battles is that they see that trend breaking and it scares them. Which is a very good thing for them to feel.

When you get a Head Shot, Take It: An analysis of the 2019 election

Hindsight is always 20/20 and I think a lot of people did some really good work in the various school board races and school levies that were on the ballot. Everything from the scandal at Lebanon schools where the levy was rejected in May then it was right back on the ballot here in November to the governor election in Kentucky where Matt Bevin lost largely due to the mad mom teacher’s union types. Or the local school board issue in my district where the incumbents won and the needed Republican vote from James Hahn fell short. He did well, but not well enough to knock off Julie Shaffer, the longtime union endorsed candidate, and stooge for contract negotiations. But the summary and what we can learn from this election is something I’ve been saying for a long time. If you get a chance to take a head shot, take the shot, metaphorically speaking of course. When you have the kind of dirt that there was on Julie Shaffer, use it. And we should have.

I’m a little rough in these kinds of things, I think of politics as war and the opponents as our mortal enemies. I don’t see the exchange as a pinky out exercise of politeness where the enemy kills you with kindness every time. That’s not a game I’m interested in playing. And many times, during this campaign that was my advice, but I understand why people didn’t take it. They still want to believe in a system that they’ve grown up with. They aren’t ready to see the education system for what it really is. They have hope that I’m wrong about it all, and for that I understand. As my wife said many times over the last few months, she likes a lot of the opponents and thinks they are nice people. I would say to her, and anybody else who said similar things, “what makes them dangerous is what they think when nobody is looking, when the lights are out. How they think and the content of those thoughts are what make them so dangerous. It’s not the smile on their faces when you shake their hands or listen to them in a polite debate.”

I said more than once during this election season that Julie Shaffer could walk naked down the middle of the street and still get 5000 union votes no matter what. So to beat her it was going to take getting a little dirty, because the union plays dirty. Look at the Bevin case in Kentucky. You must match their zeal, or they will win every time. It probably would have been better to stick Jim next to Lynda closer instead of worrying about whether or not we’d lose both of them. Jim needed more name recognition and some bigger splash stories. Votes after all went for the candidates voters read about here and there over time. They didn’t have enough information to change behavior at Lakota schools, so they voted for what was safe.

A lot of people hoped that the proof that the Lakota school board had been involved in an extortion case with a local developer, and the proof of that evidence being released with a letter would help pro-business candidates like Jim get enough votes to win. He had a respectable showing, but the issue was too complicated for most voters to understand. Most voters don’t own businesses even if they do appreciate them. Voters need more meat and potatoes, not gold bricks. The gold brick may be far more valuable, but if nobody knows what to do with it, it’s just a hunk of metal. The other side has the “children” narrative, so any opposition to them must be just as powerful and something people can relate to. Once you start talking over their heads you may not lose voters, but new ones won’t be inspired to get off their couch to vote. The labor union and their families were, because they want a nice big paycheck off that $100 million surplus.

I don’t normally do Facebook because I think its an evil data collection service that is geared to low intelligence induced people, but it is the center of most social commentary. And several people sent me Facebook postings of election activity and in reading them and the comments of many people it was amazing how deceitful people truly are. And that’s where I draw the line between good and evil. Most of the people I know in politics are good people, and in the business community. They want to do the right things in spite of the climate they are trying to do them in. I do want to help people like that because I like to see good win out. However, there are people who are truly evil, and they work in the school system and they have no idea why I would think of them that way. But they are and they should feel some pain for their villainy. Now I have defined that evil in many places, including some of my own published work in addition to these millions and millions of words. It’s not a definition a lot of people feel comfortable with, but its there, nonetheless. Its not hard for me to come to the conclusion that in politics sometimes when you get the head shot, you should take it. The one who flinches is usually the one who loses. The other side has no problem with taking a head shot, and that is why they win. Voters vote for winners good or evil. They vote for who they think will be victorious and as a candidate, if you are on your heels, they’ll pick up on it and it will show in the voter results—most of the time.

The only thing holding Republicans back is niceness. They are nice people who truly want to do the right things. From my experience, they don’t deserve many of the attacks thrown at them, and too often, they are the ones who end up on the defense for something they never did. The public education system is not only built by the worst of the villains, but its whole purpose is to make more of them which is something everyone should come to terms with if they ever want to fix it. At Lakota, things will stay the same for now, but to improve it, we needed that third vote. For the other regional fights that went in the wrong direction, well, that is always part of the plan when there are union backed candidates on the board spending the money like there is no tomorrow. And what they are teaching kids isn’t what we might call education, its something far worse and much more radical.

The next time we do these things, just some advice, play to win, hit harder and if you have dirt, use it and crush your opponent. Forget about all this playing nice stuff. Forget the handshakes, the polite debates and the trivial nonsense. Where we did play hard, and the candidates couldn’t come up for air, victory was certainly there. But why not do that in every circumstance, especially when the issue is placed right before your feet. My wife doesn’t agree, but as I was telling her last night, morality is defined by those who are victorious. Right and wrong are largely a condition of political theater, what is truly moral or not is much more obscure, and philosophical. Its not a good person who pretends to be nice but supports an organization of anti-capitalist tyranny. The smiles and bridge building are worthless in that context. So, in the future keep that in mind, and don’t hold back so much. Play to win, and to crush your opponents so much, that they will never dare to get up again.

The Mad Moms of Biological Socialism: A changing world that is taking root in logic instead of chaos

One thing is for sure, this latest round of local elections around the I-275 loop in Cincinnati has reunited me with many old friends from the No Lakota days. I used to cover education topics all over the city, not just at Lakota. But for the last several years have been more concerned about Second Amendment issues and the presidency of Donald Trump. Honestly, the debates about public education are boring and I have grown to hate many of the people advocating for government schools because I determined long ago that they were up to no good not only in what they were teaching our children, but in what they expected from the community. The fight against them is a needed one and I am glad to see how many people are still out there fighting the good fight, because it is having an impact. The needle has moved, and that has been beneficial.

I was with family members over the weekend who like all the wrong people for all the wrong reasons at Lakota, essentially so that they can have busing and some thought of day care for their children. The whole issue sickens me every time I go through it with people, because they just don’t get it. Just as in Lakota when pro-business forces produced a letter showing proof of anti-business bias from Ohio schools, most people just didn’t make a connection to the story. People sending their kids to these monstrosities of government programming are young socialists themselves. When I listen to a young mother talk, they seem all too often to be little biological socialists by default, and they vote that way. Everything in the world is supposed to yield to the needs of their child and that includes the mother herself who will literally sacrifice every last essence of their lives to give their little child what they need. I call these types of people biological socialists because they behave the same way as political ones. Their child becomes the institution instead of some government entity. But the behavior is the same, which is why government schools constantly tap into that sentiment with rigor, because it matches their overall objective.

Young moms most of the time are enduring a ten year period of insanity because its written into their biological code to do so, and it is those types of people who vote like ravenous wolves every little safety endeavor, and school levy need in government schools, because they are functioning from that train of thought, of a young socialist not much different than the most radical communist supporter of yesteryear. As well meaning as those people are, they are not functioning from logic meaning that they must be met on the battlefield of ideas with resistance, and to that effect I am glad to see so many still out there fighting the good fight even after many years of tough trench warfare that has yielded very little benefit. The important thing to note is that there have been incremental benefits that are changing the dialogue in a positive direction.

What becomes clear is that many of these modern rebellions against the school systems are by the very same women who used to be mothers but are several decades removed from the practice and have regained their minds from the turmoil of the constant needs of a young one. Once their children have grown up and away from those demanding years of childhood, they see the story for what it was all along, and they are standing up to the vast evils that emerge from public education as renewed spirits. No longer are they worried about their child getting to school on a bus, or what the cafeteria is feeding their kid for lunch, but they start to see the big picture of how things work and they aren’t happy about it politically, and want to do something about it. I especially heard from old friends in the Lebanon school district who are fighting a good fight there, as well as Talawanda. Over this last election we have had something of a class reunion, and it has been encouraging.

There is a reason that modern politics put their focus on these young socialist moms who have the depth of knowledge of a fruitcake and the memory of a fly. Because they are up to know good and looking to exploit their depleted natures for the benefit of their party politics, which in the case of public schools is nearly always some form of socialism. You don’t see many of these mad, crazy moms out there advocating for Constitutional concepts, rather, they just want their kid safe from a dangerous world and they turn to these crazy leftist teachers to give them instruction as to what they should be thinking about, whether the issue is transgender bathrooms or the fictions of global warming. When you dig just a little bit into the motives of public education and its supporters it becomes clear quickly how vastly evil it is, and how it exploits the natural biological inclinations of motherhood, especially among young ones who are still babies themselves. I would say anybody under 40 is still a baby who has a lot to learn. Yet those babies are making decisions the rest of us who know better constantly must live with and we get tired of it.

Rather than just taking it, many have been fighting back and that is new. The fights have sustained themselves over the many years that we have all been doing this, and they have formed their own cells of leadership that have not required a lot of maintenance. For me, four or five years ago it was a drain to cover everything for everyone, but now that has not been required. A change agency in the culture of public education has taken its own flight and does not need so much input to sustain a drive. And that has been good for challenging the basic premise of public education in a way it has always deserved. To give it a false value just because it was the only thing, has been a disaster for several generations of young people and we should be angry about it. And for me, its good to see that many are and are doing something about it.

Of course, the elections of November 5th will have winners and losers, there always are. What matters is that the desire to fight back is very much alive and has put directly many issues on the ballots across the nation that are healthy, and different from the narratives from a decade ago. People who have been in the trenches fighting are still doing so and are far from conquered, and the cracks in the other side are showing. While the pro government school types every year replenish their troops with a new generation of mad mothers looking toward socialism to protect their little child from the world, the foundations they use to beat us all over the head with are crumbling, and its about time. We will never have real solutions as long as their screaming voices drown out logic, when they would sacrifice everything to have busing when the more philosophical elements of public education need to be re-invented from the foundation up. It was good to hear from real friends whom I’ve come to know over the years and to learn that their spirits are far from broken. Rather, they are poised to take the fight to the next level where it belongs and to finally wear out the system that has been so destructive to the minds of kids everywhere.

Jorge Masvidal is much more American than Julie Shaffer and Ray Murray: Fighters and good punches in the the face are more honest than politics

It was a little remarkable that President Trump showed up to a UFC fight over the weekend and there was some good things to say by the participants. But then again, maybe not. There is an honesty in fighting that I think is missing a great deal from our modern culture, and the pacifists who have had bad intentions for our country have been critical of. Locally in my school district of Lakota there is a contentious race for school board for instance where the opposition in favor of the teacher’s union is not happy that two of the candidates, Lynda O’Connor and James Hahn are endorsed by the Republican Party. The union activists of course want the board to appear non-partisan—which would of course be a complete lie. The teacher’s union is a very partisan organization. But their intention is to win these fights without having to get bloody. To pretend that there isn’t a fight, when in reality, they are the ones fighting the hardest. It was good to see that President Trump gets it, and he understands it so well that he actually attended a big fight at Madison Square Gardens to support some of his friends from the years before he became president.

As Republicans we have been encouraged to fight with our pinkies out while sipping on tea cups, and to not get bloody, but to participate in “honest” debate, all the while, our opposition has been plotting openly our complete destruction. Fighters like Jorge Masvidal understand much more about politics than what he thinks is a station above his reasoning. As he said, his fists speak better than his mouth, I would say that those fists are more honest than the mouths of thousands and thousands of politicians. That is because there is honesty in the power of being the best and to overtake an opponent. The passive aggressive backstabbing of politics is a much more dishonest business, and its not a surprise that Masvidal is mystified by it. But that he knows enough to be honored by a President who respects his profession enough to attend the event.

As I have been covering all week, for a simple little debate like a school board election there is an amazing amount of deceit that goes on to protect the union candidates for future contract negotiations. Deceitful terminology fills the vocabulary of politics where if we were all honest, warfare would be a better description. That is certainly where I am at on the matter. I have no desire to play the game of politics, even if I may be really good at it. I would rather have the honest fight to find out who has the better idea. May the best person win, not the most dishonest and back stabbing one. In the theater of politics, Trump understood the real nature of winning there than all the passive aggressive losers who have built the entire system around false definitions for things at the expense of truth. And President Trump respects good, honest fights enough to attend a fight to watch young people like Masvidal give it everything in a bloody fight that was literal brutality, but much more truthful than the best of politicians.

I pointed out the value of Trump’s presidency well before he won office by pointing out his experience with WWE wrestling, even getting into the Hall of Fame. Masvidal was right about Trump, he is a “bad mother f**ker” because he did make a lot of money beating many rivals to the prize. He won in entertainment with is top television show, The Apprentice which earned him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And he won with his casinos in promoting fights both with Tyson, but with WWE events. Trump has won with championship golf courses. He has won with best selling books. He has done nothing but win most of his life and has beaten everybody who has challenged him. He even won one of the toughest fights that there is, the Presidency of the United States and against all odds. Trump has much more in common with fighters like Jorge Masvidal than he does with some pencil necked lawyer from Washington D.C. And that’s why they hate him in the Beltway, but real fighters love him.

I have watched politics for a long time, and even how business evolution has moved away from capitalist ideas into more of corporate socialism where everybody is equal and fighting is frowned upon, and I have been preaching that conflict is often better than just playing passive aggressive games of getting along for the benefit of appearances, but while true respect is elusive and not part of the conditional decision making process. Its better to fight than to get along when it is good ideas that we need to move forward for a better society. Having a good fight is an honest way of getting everything on the table so we can deal with things rather than playing nice to each other’s faces then turning around and backstabbing each other when really we should be working toward ideas that we all agree on.

Most businesspeople would rather just give a check to a politician to go fight their battles for them so they can focus on conducting business. Trump played that game well when he needed to, but as he learned, it’s not enough, especially if the politicians don’t like to fight, but would rather placate everyone so they can just get elected the next time around. In my district both businesspeople and some of the politicians are learning the value of a good fight. They may not want to do it themselves, but they are starting to understand why I carry a bullwhip around with me everywhere and am never too far from a gun. I personally love to fight and I find that the most honest people there are out there are those who also like to fight. They may not agree with me on everything, but eventually after a good fight, I find more in common with them than anybody else. Trump understands that there is more honesty at that UFC fight than in some Beltway dinner party. And Trump’s supporters are starting to see that comparison for themselves.

Locally, which is no different than any regional political conflict, we have all been tricked into thinking that our fights with extremists like Julie Shaffer, Ray Murray and their mentor Sandy Wheatley were to be debated like respectable contributors to some tea and latte game that was stacked in their favor by misdirection hidden behind politeness. They hide their aggressive political desires behind children and outright lies then wonder why we are so mad at them. But the trend is certainly changing, we now have presidents attending UFC events rather than hob knobbing with members of congress just to suck ass their way into some bill passage that only benefits the lobbyists of K Street instead of the people in rural Idaho. Jorge Masvidal understands America much more than Julie Shaffer and Ray Murray in the Lakota school district. The key is not in getting along while the teacher’s union robs our budget surplus with their easy votes, but in fighting back and telling those with ill intentions what we really think of them. Because they need to know, and so does the rest of the world. We are judged by others based on what we do and think, and I’d rather other countries looking at Jorge Masvidal as an example than the union passivist Julie Shaffer and her pot smoking buddy, Ray Murray.

All Teacher’s Unions are Communist Organizations: Even at Lakota where political endorsments are poised to lift the veil

As it has been covered extensively the teacher strike in Chicago by their labor union has been very disruptive making even the very liberal mayor there appear to have a brain by comparison. What everyone has to come to terms with, is that these teacher unions are outright communist groups advocating the same communism America has been fighting for over a century. Of course they don’t name it with a “C.” Instead when they hold up their signs proclaiming that “This is what Democracy Looks Like” that is essentially their message. They don’t love children, they want to destroy our capitalist society and for anybody who has watched the Chicago teacher’s during their strike, the evidence is more than abundant. And the teachers in these unions are able to hide their true intentions largely due to a community of parents who are too busy to pay attention to their real definitions, which is on full display below for the upcoming election at Lakota, where we are advocating to elect two new “Republican” endorsed school board candidates, Lynda O’Connor and James Hahn. The Facebook page is from a long time tax increase supporter, Sandy Wheatley who used to be the president of the Lakota School Board many years ago and was part of creating the culture of deficit spending that caused a lot of trouble that persists to this day. She is discussing with another person the difference between a union endorsement and an official political party.

The ignorance presented is staggering. Sandy isn’t as stupid as she sounds here, but she has to play dumb to sell the sausage to Lakota parents, something she has a lot of experience doing. And I promise, Sandy is not the reason that her good friend Julie Shaffer is in support of transgender bathrooms. Sandy is actually a girl. I promise contrary to what you might think by some of her pictures. There is a reason her Facebook picture is Julie Shaffer’s campaign sign. However, Sandy is attempting to sell to all who will listen that the Lakota school board is a “non-partisan” position and that all members should not be political. The reason she wants that is so that the labor union, which is just as communist as the Chicago teacher’s union needs to change the name of their intentions so that they can pull off a scam against the voters so they can remain in power.

All the evidence you need can be found in the labor walkouts all across the country, whether we are talking about Arizona, Los Angeles, Chicago or even the one just to the west of Lakota schools at Ross Township, the mantra from the teachers is “red for ed,” or otherwise, the red of communism to control public education. Sandy and the gang within the Lakota school system has had to dress up their public perception largely because in our community there has been considerable pushback against them for which they have had to put on a happy face and attempt to present denials. But make no mistake about it, the Lakota Education Association is just as communist as the Chicago teacher’s union and they are extremely political. What’s dangerous is that they don’t say what their politics is. As Chairman Wheatley says on her Facebook post, she considers the labor union endorsement to be similar to the “Girl Scouts.” But providing an elusive definition for what they stand for, the labor unions have been able to gain great control over our public education system and in Lakota we are looking to stop that with official party endorsements to the contrary. People know what Republicans are, so it provides a clear distinction between the endorsed candidates of Lynda O’Connor and James Hahn, as opposed to the union stooges Julie Shaffer and Ray Murray.

Sandy knows how the game works, she has been at the center of destruction for several decades now. Back when she was on the Lakota school board the big news was that the district had grown to the point where it needed to have two new high schools. They made a huge mistake under her watch, the district financially should have split into two districts, one in each township for which Lakota resides. One school district should have been in Liberty Township and the other in West Chester Township, because one community overloaded itself with terrible zoning that placed too many residential voters to the polls to vote in favor of Lakota schools, while West Chester was able to diversify the heavy needs of the burdensome school district with more businesses. When it comes time to vote, West Chester tends to vote down tax increases while the new residents of Liberty Township vote in favor. Sandy was part of tying the two together forcing West Chester to support Lakota East while Liberty Township does very little to support Lakota West.

One of the goals of communism was always to attack private property and that is precisely what all public schools do, they force property owners in their districts to pay for their property to a school that is hell bent on teaching children not about capitalism, but about all manners of socialist and communist ideas—things that Republicans don’t support. But all that effort is hidden behind “children” and the real names of the activity are avoided and actually deferred by willing little soldiers like Lakota’s Sandy Wheatley so that voters don’t really understand what’s going on, only that they need to drop their kid off somewhere for somebody to watch while they go to work. So they start off by wanting to believe in the system, which people like Chairman Wheatley are all too happy to provide them with some definition they can believe in, “labor unions aren’t political, they are just like the Girl Scouts.” When in reality, they are more political than actual political parties.

I would doubt that Sandy Wheatley has a copy of the Communist Manifesto in her home. What is disgusting about her is that she used to be a school board member yet she is clearly in support of the labor union over the needs of the voters, and Julie Shaffer is a carbon copy of Sandy. They support the union over the voters and when it comes time to negotiate a contract on behalf of the voters, the voters don’t have any representatives. But the union does, on both sides of the table. That is how costs ran out of control at Lakota and Sandy Wheatley was at the heart of the whole mistake, and she is campaigning for Julie Shaffer to do the same presently. And the labor union doesn’t just want a piece of that $100 million surplus that Lakota has right now, they want political activism, such as transgender bathrooms which Julie Shaffer supports. That is how the union keeps its members placated and focused on their communist agenda. Where else would those stupid people make the kind of money that they do in public education? Listening to the Chicago teacher’s talk, who could disagree with me as to their intellect? Contrary to what they say, teacher’s are well paid for their silly little work schedule and their all summer’s off. It’s a good gig that these stupid people wouldn’t get anywhere else, so they will support the communism of public education to get that pay check. Just as parents are willing to overlook the same so they can have the free babysitting. But what is actually happening is very sinister, and expensive. At least with good Republican people on the Lakota school board we can deal with the cost. While time and knowledge will bring people to the other problems by calling them by name, instead of elusive terminology meant to maintain the illusion that all this has been a good thing all along. Taxpayers need representatives on the school board. The Lakota teacher’s union already has their representatives. They don’t need more with Julie Shaffer and Ray Murray.

What they are Doing at Ross will soon come to Lakota: A promise I’ll make if you’ll vote correctly

In case you haven’t heard dear reader, the future of Lakota is actually happening in the Ross Township school system where they just passed a levy a short while ago and now the teacher’s union there is begging for a raise based on the extra revenue. And as reported by the soft taco education writer for the Journal-News, Michael D. Clark, the Ross teachers just rejected the latest offer by the school board even after a federal mediator came in to help resolve the matter. We also have seen nationally that the Chicago teacher’s union have been striking yet again to demand pay increases leaving thousands of parents scrambling to find somewhere to put their kids during their busy workdays. In my world, I would say to fire every single one of them and replace them with brand new employees who are not part of the union. But these are all government schools. We hire a school board through the election process to represent us at the table, but honestly, and they all know it, there is only one eventual resolution, they will have to agree to the pay increases one way or another because all other options to manage the situation is illegal. The government has ensured its employees of that much, and they use it against taxpayers all the time, and to hell with the children. The Ross teachers don’t give a damn about the kids otherwise they’d take the money the school board was willing to give them, and they’d shut the hell up and like it.

And that is precisely why the Lakota teacher’s union is eager to elect Ray Murray and Julie Shaffer to the school board so that when it comes time to have this same negotiation next year with the union, that Ray and Julie will lay down and give them all that they want without a lot of fuss. Because after all, the deck is stacked against management and they don’t want a lot of bloody news in the newspaper hurting their union brand. Ross Township in relation to other schools in Butler County is out across the river in no man’s land. Not really along any big commercial paths. It’s kind of the wild west version of a community in the very Republican county. So its easy to ignore and overlook in the paper. But it has all the same problems that a big school like Lakota has just to the east by ten miles or so. And what is happening there is a mirror reflection of what is coming to Lakota where a lot of people will be very upset when the same conditions are presented to them as voters.

Michael Clark and reporters like him are part of the problem. They are just going through the motions in life, and don’t want to disrupt their contacts on these school boards. So his reporting is soft shelled when it comes to the education beat because his newspaper employer relies on the old system to work, they need the sports pages, the advertising connected to that system and the ankle deep reporting that never gets to the heart of the kind of topics that are really floating around in the depths of all education. When he writes a story, it doesn’t put pressure on the union representatives like Robin Plowman at Ross to get her members in line to the school board demands. It only puts pressure on the school board because all the powers of nature are aligned by the rules and regulations to destroy their position, made worse by the reporters who are clearly aligned politically with the teacher’s union. For school boards its like being trapped in a house surrounded by armed forces and they’ve cut off your power and water and food supply. Eventually you’ll have to come out into a hail of gun fire. And as a school board member, you are expected to like it.

What we need desperately, especially at Lakota are school board members like Lynda O’Connor and James Hahn to hold the line during next year’s contract negotiations and when the teacher’s threaten to strike, which they will, to be willing to tell them to take a hike. But that is only one part of the puzzle. To fight their out of school antics, there need to be people like me willing to fight them with their games. I’m not saying it has to be me, it would be nice if it was a bunch of people like me, but someone has to engage them radical antic to radical position because that’s the way they fight and it’s the only path to beat them. The community has to back its school board and take the fight to the lap of the teacher’s unions knowing that you can’t trust the newspapers or the television reporters to stand behind the community representatives. I am certainly willing to do that and I have under considerable fire which I enjoy. That has been the point of this continued fight over the last decade. What’s different now is that there is a chance to get a real school board in place instead of a lot of those soft-shell tacos that Michael Clark likes so much so he can write those easy stories and not ruffle any feathers with his editors. He has enough ruffled feathers living in that beard of his especially this time of year as birds too lazy to fly south for warmer weather just reside in his beard.

What voters have to come to terms with, and we all have to accept is that teacher’s unions do not put children ahead of their paychecks. They use them as extortion pieces, but they don’t love them at all, and will abandon them in the classroom to put leverage on their contract negotiations without a second thought. There are lots of teachers that I have talked to who will say to me that union membership is a requirement and that they have no choice but to hide within membership and do what the leadership tells them. The union understands that too, they don’t give their membership a choice in the matter, they expect their members to follow their lead and use their numbers as leverage in negotiations. If the teachers go along with it but silently send messages out that they really just want to teach the kids, they are still acting against the children by allowing the union to have all that power. They are contributing to evil every time and its their fault that these negotiations go so poorly. If they are honest with themselves, they just want the pay increase. They aren’t doing the work for the pleasure of teaching children—even if the district can’t afford them. They just want the money and the union gets it through collective bargaining which is stacked against the school boards in every circumstance.

At Lakota things are a bit different. I am personally willing to fight the union if the school board will stick up to them. But first we must have a school board that will do so. The next time there is a strike at Lakota I will take that fight to them building a coalition of our own and to hell with that federal moderator and Michael Clark’s reporting. Put real school board members on the board and I will promise that I will defend that board with whatever it takes to beat that union. But first you will have to vote for James Hahn and Lynda O’Connor on Tuesday November 5, 2019. Do that much and we’ll take care of the rest. Unlike reporters such as Michael Clark I will get the dirt on every member of the teacher’s union, who they are sleeping with, who they didn’t tip well at a local restaurant, even what kind of underwear they are wearing and we will paint the world with their antics. And they won’t like it one bit. That’s what will happen the next time teachers at Lakota try what they are doing now at Ross and ultimately Chicago. It’s a game I’m sick of seeing and I’m not a soft taco kind of guy. I like a lot of hot sauce and there is plenty of it there to consume. Now get out there and VOTE!

Its all about Guns in Lakota Schools: Remember to vote for Lynda O’Connor and Jim Hahn for School Board on November 5th

From the beginning it was always about guns for me regarding the school board candidates at the Lakota school district which we are voting for on November 5th, 2019. Not so much as we use guns to shoot people, but that they sustain ourselves from people who would like to shoot us. The political philosophy being embraced or not really, points to the essential differences of the management system that is up for debate. Julie Shaffer and Ray Murray represent anti-guns on teacher’s points of view, exactly the same position as the teacher’s union and Democrats nationally. The roots of their belief system is that we should all depend on each other, flaws and all for the betterment of a utopian society lacking individual identity and trusting in the system we have invented to sustain us. As opposed to Lynda O’Connor and James Hahn who believe guns should be worn by teachers as first responders in the moment of a hostile crises and that individuals, not systems, are the keys to solving many of the social ills starting with the ownership of firearms in general.

To further break down this parody Julie and Ray want voters to trust their very flawed personalities with the lives of our children, and that also is the position of the progressive teacher’s union politically. Once anybody admits to themselves that guns are in American society, and should be in all American schools, to protect the acquisition of individual possession then the formula for all public education to teach contrary realizations is exposed and ruined forever. So of course, Julie and Ray don’t want guns on teachers, they want everyone to trust the system they represent, and to their specific roles, are terribly underqualified. However, qualification is an individual assessment, so for them, so long as they can blend into the background, their personal faults ethically, financially, and morally can be ignored.

This interpretation of guns is a heady matter that is not conducive to the lazy thinkers and mass collectivists that have transcended from the deserts of the Middle East and migrated along the coasts of the Indian Ocean during the evolution of the many oriental religions of sacrifice and collective salvation. The gun has no place in those cultures because the aim of life is not to acquire individual traits, but to get rid of them. If you study the modern liberal, that is the roots that you will find dear reader, and that is the foundation of all teacher unions and government schools. Every single one of them. And when it comes to managing those school boards with like minded people, Julie and Ray are just the kind of people they want running things, easy to beat, flawed personalities, and not very smart.

In fact, at the core of education as we all assume is the individual attainment of intelligence, after all that is the purpose of education, to acquire knowledge. But that is not the goal of government schools led by these sinister, oriental style forces. They want a breakdown of individualism and an advocacy of social collectivism where the institution is worshipped itself, not the participants. You can see that at any Friday Night Football game at Lakota. The parents in the audience watching their kids play games under the lights of an October sky will say, “we won,” or “we lost.” By attending the game, they feel they are part of the game and therefor, the institution represented on the scoreboard. Individual touchdowns by heroics are lost to the next day news so long as the school gets the credit for individual behavior. And that is the way it is with these people, and it always has been.

So to come to such thoughts is a very individualized process, and for that people arriving at such a state need guns to protect themselves from the advocates of institutionalism, whether the attackers are crazed pot smoking lunatics or Manchurian candidates seeking actual assassination to preserve the status quo. You would be surprised to what extent lazy, dull; people will fight to avoid more work and real thinking. They would truly rather kill you than to step up to the level of thought you might introduce them to with a little effort. To that proof I would offer Socrates as an example, who was poisoned for corrupting the youth of Greek society. Today instead of killing Socrates as a middle-aged man they just kill them before they ever hatch out of kindergarten. The public schools don’t want the next great philosophers, and great thinkers and innovators. They want boring people that they can control easily, and they certainly don’t want them to have guns to defend themselves with.

Ultimately that is why teachers in school must have guns and why we need school board members who support education curriculums that advocate individualized learning and will push back against the tide of state and federal mandates to the contrary. We want kids to learn in school and we want guns to protect what they have learned from villains of old oriental philosophies from eradicating that possession from their minds with the threat of death. Guns protect all individualized possessions, even knowledge. Anyone who knows history well could think quickly of five or six situations where governments, kings, or anarchists have shown up on the doorsteps of a great thinker and killed them so that society would not advance beyond the intellectual reach of the worst and most wicked. For that is the true intention of evil and the reason it is bad.

Guns are about preserving what we teach to individual students so that they can live and carry out the products of their understanding. Not in just saving their lives for the sake of one more statistic sitting in the stands of a football game cheering for the institution when they could be at home reading a book and getting smarter. The goal of a school should not be to accept the perverted sexual understanding of the most obsessed mind with the basic functions of reproduction, but to teach them to think beyond such primitive cravings, to the point where we don’t even think about being transgender, but what is the state of life outside of the universe, or multiverse. It is up to the education system to teach to think beyond limits, not to hold everyone under them.

And that is the subtle message of this election, Lynda O’Conner and James Hahn stand for guns and the protection of individual possession of knowledge, Julie Shaffer and Ray Murray aren’t even smart enough to ask such a question, so they don’t want to be left behind by smarter people than they are, rather they want to keep guns out of the schools, and instead keep the topics of conversation on transgender bathrooms and how to blow $100 million by paying teachers countless amounts of money then asking taxpayers to subsidize their failure at some future time. By voting against guns in schools and in society, anti-gun personalities like Ray and Julie stand with the original masses in disregarding individual behavior in favor of collectivism. And when you see how Ray and Julie have led their lives, you can understand why they are so eager for such a position.
