The Hidden Meaning behind a Government Employee: Making Parents Proud

You know that there is a serious problem when you sit down with people to speak, and they proclaim their child is doing “big” things with their life–they are going to become a “teacher.” These people speak with glee that their child is following their “calling.” Other conversations about such a “calling” come from those who decide to become police officers. And of course firefighters are another, where the idea of “sacrifice” to society is held in extremely high esteem. I have heard for the last time that a person is “good with kids,” or has a “love for humanity,” and that is why they should become a teacher or other public employee, without explaining the nature of the hypocrisy.

There is nothing wrong with those jobs, other than the fact that they are “government jobs.” I would have no problem with teachers, police or firefighters if they were private employees. But they are government employees, and that means there is no competition in those fields which is why I have a big problem with all those positions.

The teacher in a government school is generally a spokesman for liberalism. Politicians in their vast ignorance promote education as though education had value just in the occupational title. The quality of education is what our current society lacks. Government teachers tend to lean toward liberalism, since it is that progressive oriented philosophy that secures their livelihoods. But politicians from all sides of the political spectrum give a free pass to the general title of education yielding to the tendency of socialism being taught without thought to the future impact of those devastating curriculums.

The undertone of these conversations with public employees and their children is that by giving a sacrifice of themselves toward a great cause of social significance, that they should be compensated extremely well. The parents of these future public workers speak with pride about these occupations for their children because they view those jobs as lottery tickets for success. The parents know that their children will be taken care of by mother government once they’ve left the biological mother so it eases their minds and they actively promote them.

But this is not the role of government. Government is not an employer. It has no business being in the employment business, because the only revenue they have to offer is the money they’ve taken in the form of taxes. Yet the government hires many employees, and they typically vote for politicians that will promise to give them more money. It’s a corrupt collusion that is devoid of competition which makes the efforts of the public employee economically unsound.

Public school allows middle-class families to believe they have more money than they really do. It allows them to buy a larger house since they do not have to spend the money on private education. Public education offers “free” education provided by the collective society, and is actually built upon theft. Because of the government monopoly of the education system they can drive up the cost of the product infinitely while at the same time creating guaranteed voters for their future proposals. The parents who move to a school district know they couldn’t otherwise afford to live in their homes without the school offering free education, so the government school commits two evils, one it artificially props up the real estate markets of those districts, and two it creates government employee positions giving statisticians false numbers of labor productivity.

The real jobs are in the private sector where the risk is great, and the rewards are greater. If teachers taught in private schools that competed with other schools, and teachers showed they had great ability it would mean something. But without competition the teaching profession is just incestuous praise—as real quality does not come into play. In public education quality is not measured, it’s just a token utterance among the educrats. It’s like a parent thinking that their child is the greatest child in the world and the child believing it without competing with other kids in the neighborhood to verify the fact. In the teaching profession of government schools the compliments among each other are all inbred. This has given outside tax payers the illusion that the teaching profession is great because all the employees within the system are patting themselves on the back and the news media covers that back patting as fact.

Cops and firefighters are in the same boat. They are “created” jobs and are incestuous in their nature. They create all the statistics that they use to demonstrate their social usefulness. They have complete control of how much money they make because they have a monopoly and how their skills are marketed to the public. What all government employees have in common is none of them have to deal with competition. Cops and firefighters will say they are worth infinite amounts of money because they make society “safe.” The question is never asked how that safety is obtained. How many emergencies do firefighters typically go on in a week, and how much does each occurrence cost the tax payer? How many times a year is a cop shot at? What is the risk assessment? These questions are never asked, and values are never given. These cops will of course say that I don’t know what it’s like to be shot at, or to go up to a door where people want to kill you on the other side, and I will say, yes I do. I have done repo work which is more dangerous than cop work because I wasn’t allowed to carry a gun. So they could shoot at me, but I wasn’t allowed to shoot back. And to be honest, I would do that work again just for the fun of it—to put the situation in perspective. To me money has nothing to do with the job. You either like it or you don’t.

Imagine a world where all we had was McDonalds. Forget that there was a Burger King, a Wendy’s, or a Taco Bell. McDonalds currently offers drinks for $1 dollar no matter what size you buy. In fact, much of the McDonalds menu is driven by a desire to offer more food cheaper than their competition. McDonalds if they had a monopoly–meaning there was not a Burger King, Wendy’s or Taco Bell, would have no reason to drive down the cost of their food. The cost of their food would always increase, because without competition, they could create the demand and the supply for their product just as government employees do now.

Because there is a Burger King and a Wendy’s, McDonalds is always pushing themselves to become faster, and cheaper while still presenting the product that the public expects. This is what’s missing from all government jobs, and the reason that parents view a government job as a lottery ticket to success. Because once a government job is created it generally does not go away. It is because of this principle that police are retiring as millionaires, and teachers spend their summers in socialist countries running from bulls like the superintendent of Mason schools is doing on her vacation which was promoted by the Cincinnati Enquirer. You can see the future levy advertisement article that Michael Clark wrote on behalf of the Mason School System here:

http://news.cincinnati.com/article/20120707/NEWS01/307070033/Mason-superintendent-runs-bulls

By the way, in Mason, Ohio city council decided to put a new tax on the ballot for the upcoming fall elections to pay for fire services. Within a year residents of Mason will also be asked to pass another school levy, which is the prelude to the Enquirer article. These stories are simply public relations and the large papers are in bed with the public employees the way an adulteress is with a lover. They don’t have a marriage where they share household responsibilities, but when they need something from one another, they show up in each others beds. Here is the article on the proposed tax hike in Mason to pay for the fire department—which is another bottomless pit of finance requirements driven higher due to lack of competitive rivals.

When a parent proudly proclaims their child is going to be a teacher, a firefighter, or a cop, they say it with pride and relief hidden behind the mask of public sacrifice. The parent is proud because their child will become part of the safe arms of mother government, and will be cared for their entire lives, which is the dream of most parents—to know that their children are “safe.” And in the scheme of things, there is not a safer or better compensated job than those of the public employee, because they are paid by looted tax money driven by phantom statistics and dangers. Most of the time the firefighters between emergencies are playing Xbox in the firehouse for entire work shifts on end, cops are sitting on the side of the road pretending to clock speeders but are actually browsing the internet on their personal phones and looking for women to pull over so they can flirt with them behind their wives backs, and teachers are planning their global vacations in their three months off after they’ve worked a grueling—thankless work day of 7.5 hours. It is for those reasons that the parent of the public employee proudly tells others that their child is going to be a teacher, a fire fighter, or a cop—because all parents want their children to have better lives than they had, and there is no better life than that of the public employee. The public employee is cared for by mother government and does not have to worry about the same kinds of things that the private employee does. But the public employee is artificially safe, with the security coming at the expense of the rest of society. The public employee is simply socialist manifestations of a society marching toward communism. Nobody wants to call it that, because they want to believe that the situation is truly too good to be true—because it is. The cost is a gradual erosion of freedoms for all in a social contradiction that spits in the face of everything it means to be an American. For that reason the public employee is a disgrace to everything that has value in The United States and are the jobs for looters and thieves to legally confiscate from the hard-working private sector the fruits of their labor behind the tyranny of safety. This is why the parental advocate who proudly professes the success of their children entering a public profession are advocating an evil without knowing it. What they are announcing to the world is that they raised a child who decided to be a parasite on society, which should bring disgrace. But in the case of the parasitic public employee, it instead brings praise from the adulteress newspapers, and praise from those who proudly wear the American flag on their arms believing they are American patriots when in fact they support through their actions the hammer and sickle.

Sex, Murder, Teachers, and the Taxpayer: Ryan Widmer and the Mason Teacher

A Mason assistant principal resigns while Ryan Widmer proceeds through his third murder trail and a Mason Teacher is under police investigation all within Warren County.

While Jennifer Crew testified against Ryan Widmer, Mason’s High School Assistant Principle resigned his position. Read the article below while you listen to the testimony of Jennifer Crew as reported by Bill Cunningham. Click here:

The rest of this story unified in its nature and occurrence in the same county proceeds in this article from the Cincinnati Enquirer, February 2, 2011

MASON – An assistant principal at Mason High School who was recently placed on paid administrative leave has submitted his resignation from the Warren County district.

George Coates, a nine-year veteran of Mason Schools who makes $88,000 a year, was placed on leave last week for undisclosed reasons, Mason officials said.

Though Coates’ leave began days after a Mason High School teacher – Stacey Shuler – was also placed on leave and is being investigated by Mason Police for inappropriate e-mails, Coates was not part of that investigation.
Coates cited “personal reasons” with his last day of work being Feb. 28. He was unavailable for comment.

What do the stories of George Coates and the relationship that will be revealed with Stacy Schuler the Physical Education teacher also at the High School have in common with Ryan Widmer? Sex

SEX, SEX, and more Sex!

Listen to Doc Thompson discuss the endemic problem that is rampant all over the country involving teachers that seem enticed by young students. If there is any lesson to be learned, it’s that teachers that we’re paying extraordinary amounts of money cannot seem to overcome their all too human frailties. This issue in Mason is going to be very disappointing as the facts percolate to the surface. Lakota just recently had its own embarrassing scandal in the Ryan Fahrenkemp case involving the FBI and that teacher’s obsession with child pornography. These cases in Mason, and Lakota probably have more to do with why those two districts elected not to attempt another levy until these stories fade from people’s minds.

 

George Coates, high school assistant principal made $85,311 in 2010 with 20 days vacation, full retirement and Medicare paid. Stacy Schuler, Physical Ed teacher at High School made $58,520.00 in 2010 and worked 185 days. (These numbers from Buckeye Institute website.) Why would these individuals risk these well-paying jobs to indulge in “inappropriate” behavior?

Well, ask Ryan Widmer who wanted to have a three-way with his wife so badly that he ruined their young marriage. Widmer obviously wasn’t ready to be married and was very immature in his thinking, having an adulterous relationship even so early in his marriage. Sounds like they were having normal marriage issues, but his sexual perversions were too much for his wife to forgive, and he couldn’t handle the rejection of her leaving, so bad things happened when their tempers got away from them.

The reason this Widmer case is so compelling to so many people is that Ryan sitting on that stand reveals the fool in many people that actually let their primal energy, sexual, and predatory, get away from them. Many people fear in themselves the same uncontrolled passions, but most will never completely release to the extremes that Widmer did.

What all this has in common is this, people that take for granted the fortunes in their lives which come their way are all too tempted to abuse those fortunes. Sounds like Ryan Widmer took his wife for granted and thought he could “nudge” her into fulfilling some of his fantasies that were obviously sexual. And these teachers, they are well paid, protected by powerful unions, those nasty little voices that call out from the deep recesses of their minds have the luxury of time and finance to act on their fantasies unlike other people who work from pay check to pay check and don’t have the spare time or the means to embark on “sexual deviancy.” Ryan Fahrenkemp resigned from Lakota in August when it became obvious to him that he was going down in flames, and now George Coates is fleeing the scene of the crime hoping to avoid the fall-out from the case with Stacy Schuler when her investigation is revealed. These stories have in common varying degrees of human fault anchored in sexual exploration and abuse of their specific powers.

Then there is Jennifer Crew in this whole, seemingly unconnected soap opera of warped minds and freaks. Jennifer cringed in her chair during cross-examination and revealed much about her true motif in this trial. There is no doubt that Widmer called her, sent her texts as he did with several other women when he thought she was an attractive woman, and could use his celebrity status to fulfill the fantasies he couldn’t get from his deceased wife. But once he found out that Jennifer was not very attractive, he cut off the relationship. And Jennifer wanting revenge let out some of what Ryan had told her. But her mind took liberties with some of those truths because her own lustful fantasies of being held by a killer would go unfulfilled, and it’s likely that only somewhere deep inside her own mind does the truth reside. Even loved ones near her will want to see everything in her motives but the truth.

The mind is a strange arena. Be careful what you allow in it because the ramifications can lead to various degrees of misery and human decay. That’s what all these stories have in common, human decay of the mind and that they are happening in Warren County, Ohio.

Oh, and for those that think I am making a distant connection here, and that this texting issue at Mason is a new and isolated issue regarding administrative abuses at Mason? No. Check out this video from way back in 2007, which is a precursor to the story that is about to explode upon the Mason School District scene.


It doesn’t matter to me if it’s a teacher, or a murder, if the personalities are up to no good; they deserve to be called out for their bad behavior. The Widmer trial will cost taxpayers over $50K, and I already told you what those two Mason employees cost the residents of Mason. Their bad behavior ultimately cost our society, because they chose to engage in that bad behavior without any respect for the taxpayers that end up having to pick up the mess in their wakes. They deserve the anger that is unleashed upon them.

Mason School District Gives Community the “Finger”

The Mason School Board in a meeting on Tuesday, January 25, 2011 more or less gave the people of Mason the finger; (figuratively speaking of course) The people of Mason were told that because they didn’t pass a levy in November that painful cuts were headed their way. Basically, they’re going to “extend” the busing routes, along with some “pay to play” initiatives that are designed to cut nearly $6 million out of their budget.

What they didn’t do was what Lakota has done, and that is see what the actual budget requirements are going to be once Governor Kasich eliminates many of the unfunded mandates he’s promised to cut, to give districts the chance to take their fates in their own control. That information comes out in March. What Mason did was decided to point their finger at the community and play the extortion game.

The following clip is from the day after, and on the eve of Jeff Reeds visit to promote School Choice, ironically in Mason on Thursday. Jeff and Sharon Poe, the woman behind defeating the levy in Mason went on the Big One with Doc Thompson to cover the various issues percolating in the shadows of the Big One’s radio transmitter.

Everywhere that monopolies exist, extortion of the consumer of the products monopolies produce can take place. If you’ll remember, the Federal Government during the Clinton Administration went after Microsoft, to bust up the market monopoly Microsoft had over other companies. And at the turn of the last century, Teddy Roosevelt, the Progressive Hero, went after the Railroads. But where are the demands from these same progressives to go after the monopolies of “public education?”

That’s what it is. Mason has no right to play the guilt game with the citizens of its district. However, Kevin Bright is one of the highest paid superintendents for a reason. He’s has been one of the instructors of Levy University, taught at the annual OSBA event in November of each year at Columbus. So he’s the master of getting levies passed, so in his district, they are “choosing to play the game.”

And the game is a thuggish exchange of protecting the top paid administrators and teachers at the sacrifice of the teachers and personnel of lower stature, and the goal is to secure their wages and pensions so as to maintain their monopoly on education far into the future, to protect the livelihoods they’ve manipulated for themselves.

I had a teacher send me an email, “you’re not going to stop until we’re all making minimum wage are you? We’d all have to take a 30% cut to meet the budget at Lakota.”

All I can do is shrug my shoulders to that comment. Nobody said anything about teachers making minimum wage, but a 30% cut to meet the budget is something I suggested almost 6 months ago. If Lakota, Mason, and the rest of the districts that are in trouble, which is everyone, had taken such a step, they would have taken the steps to make themselves competitive for the future. A teacher that makes a $105,000 and takes a reduction of 30% would pay that teacher $73,500, which if they have tenure, and a master’s degree, is much more in line with a proper salary. Does anyone believe that making $73,500 a year with great benefits, summers off, and every federal holiday through the school year is asking teachers to work for minimum wage? On the other hand, I would argue that new teachers should be paid in line with what they are currently making. It’s the top end that is wrecking these school budgets, not the new teachers that are only making $35 to $45K per year.

Yet there is only silence to that obvious problem, and all districts are willing to deal with is the extreme low hanging fruit. And they do that because they are effective monopolies that feel empowered to punish its consumers because they lack competition. A district like Mason knows that parents are forced to use their product, and because of the property taxes residence are forced to pay, are literally pushed into accepting realities that would otherwise be completely deplorable.

In the end it’s more about ego and PR relations than doing what’s right for the community. What would happen if the man who teaches Levy University in Columbus couldn’t even get a levy passed in his own district? What message would that send to the surrounding districts?

Find out soon? The power is in the voters hands.
