“Don’t Tread On Me”: The Red Pill Rebellion

Don't tread on me

On more than a few occasions during the last week, prior to the November elections, readers, friends and otherwise have expressed to me their concern that things would ever get better—that our current American society seems destined to slide into a communist rot driven by the old hippies of the “Flower Child” generation.  I can understand the concern as even forty and fifty-year-olds that didn’t come of age during the 60s but was still infected by communism, such as the current Obama administration, think like they do.  But not everyone does.  The trouble makers are easy to spot, they are usually academics raised on Marxism, socialism and progressive causes for the benefits of global communism.  The closer to modern education they are, the worse they are, and more statist their beliefs.  But along those same demographic age groups a ray of hope is emerging that will not tolerate the communist utopia that the modern political left dreams of—and the resistance won’t be pretty.

Many believe that the modern Tea Party was inspired by the Republican Party through the likes of Karl Rove to unify the senior citizens in their party.  Because of that and other reasons many Tea Party types are questioning whether the Tea Party should even keep such a name, because a whole new generation of rebel rousers, and freedom lovers is emerging that doesn’t feel driven by reverence for the American Revolution.  Instead, they were raised on Rambo movies, Asteroids video games, rock and roll, and large doses of capitalism provided by the Ronald Reagan presidency.  I have said often that many of the problems of the early 2000s are due to the failed statist policies of the “Flower Children.”  They are currently in charge right now in politics, business, entertainment, and education.  But behind them on the age bracket are the kind of people who listened with great reverence to the music of Metallica, Kiss, Judas Priest and many other heavy metal bands.  The “Flower Children” had Bob Dylan, the Beatles and other pacifists.  The 80s rebel rousers had songs like this one shown below by Metallica called “Don’t Tread On Me.”  Listen to the words carefully and watch the video.  It contains within it the future of America.

I’ve been a body-guard, a repo man, and a bouncer at times and before or after conflicts I would turn on this song by Metallica to charge myself up.  Even now, twenty years later, the song still has reverence for me, it was written well before there was a Tea Party or even a Barack Obama.  Back then, freedom was still an illusion and the national debt was manageable—yet Metallica saw the writing on the wall like the rest of the people from my generation do—and they are quite pissed off about it.  Metallica songs like this one are representative to how we feel, so any kind of communist utopia that Obama and the wealthy power-hungry billionaires like George Soros intend, will not make any real traction.  Instead, it will push my generation into open revolution as they will not yield to statism—once they finally admit to themselves that government is a problem.

I have a long time running joke in my family that my favorite people are those under the age of 12 and over the age of 65, everyone else in between is broken and not worth my time.  The reason is that the ages stated that I enjoy are human beings not functioning from a sexual nature.  Once the pituitary kicks in and young people become sexually interested, they go into a cloud of misdirected deceit for the next 50 years of their life, until their sexual nature kicks off again and they can resume logical thinking as senior citizens.  Most of the people who listen to Metallica along with me are from this broken age where their primary purpose is still power for the sake of sexual gratification—the ability to plant a seed or receive a seed which is the mating custom of human beings.  Most of our economy and our entire political structure is built around this ridiculous notion.  But once these people move into their senior citizen status, they will still have the music and philosophy of their youth, but not the sexual misconduct to motive their thoughts, much the way today’s communists and Marxists have risen to dominance no longer distracted by drugs and sexual orgies.  When the Metallica generation hits this period, there will not be unlimited compliance to statist policies.  There will be open rebellion, and the old hippies will have died off leaving this new rebellion to run everything—and their mode of philosophy will be capitalism—the kind they grew up with during the years of Ronald Reagan.

So fret not all who read this.  The statism of today will not last.  There isn’t money to support communism in America and there is not a will by the public to embrace it.  They’ve tasted freedom even if for a brief moment during a Metallica concert, or in a car driving down the highway at over 100 miles per hour with open containers of beer flowing freely between the occupants.  Freedom is something people are waiting for—because it is reflected in their art—the songs that are listed on their iPods—songs like Metallica’s “Don’t Tread On Me.”

I can speak for myself, that song reflects my thoughts.  I will not yield to communism, statism, socialism, or anything the Obama administration creates.  They do not represent me and I refuse their system of beliefs. I want nothing to do with Obama’s view of America, a socialist paradise born in the laboratory of college campuses in love with European hierarchy.  And the Tea Party is not so much about today’s senior citizens getting politically active.  It’s about them waking up and smelling the coffee and wanting to fix things because sexuality no longer clouds their minds as the logic of youth has returned to their creative minds.  At the roots of the Tea Party movement is a much harder core belief system that is angry and ready to direct their thoughts, and those intentions will not move toward communism, but away from it. An entire generation grew up on that song, and deep in their hearts they believe it.

There were not politicians like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz even a decade ago.  They are a new emergence and are of the same age as I am–products of the 1980s.  It would not surprise me if Senator Ted Cruz does not listen to Metallica on his iPod as he travels through the airport.  I would not be surprised if Rand Paul doesn’t still have the Metallica CD in his personal music library.  I would not be surprised to learn that they personally liked the song, “Don’t Tread On Me.”  The good news is that there are more of these types of people moving into political positions.  I can name three who are potentially going to be West Chester Trustees.  They could down 10 beers at Jags, put their fist through a window, and then balance a check book all within an hour of each other, and they are not that far off the kind of thinking that I have.  They are not statists, but good people who work hard, play hard, and don’t bow to anybody—and they are coming of age.

What’s at stake for the statists is the fantasy of compliance.  They will have their victories in this time and place because what we are seeing are the fantasies of the “Flower Children”—a world of forced peace holding hands under the power of government imposition by the leadership of the political left.  But tomorrow, they will see their influence erode away into silliness.  If and when the bullets start flying, people like me won’t be calling 911.  I’ll shoot back—with a much bigger gun, and I’ll crank up “Don’t Tread On Me” while doing it.  But compliance to statism is not an option.  It’s not going to happen under any conditions.

So the answer to the question of whether or not things get better—it eventually will.  It will get worse because the left is in charge, and they will fall flat on their face with intrusive social policies, bankruptcy, and a weakened society that is tired of a leftist flat line human existence.  Once the left fails completely—and they are currently–my generation will be there with Metallica blowing wind into our sails, and we are the calm generation.  The generation that comes after us is even less interested in communism, socialism, social sharing, and all the “Flower Child” passivity of the 60s.  They are playing Grand Theft Auto and first person shooters till the small hours of the morning and listening to music that is even angrier than Metallica.  So as you listen to the song “Don’t Tread On Me” by Metallica think of the world that is coming, not the one that’s currently here.  As a friend of mine asked me late last week, “is there hope.”  And, “what should be the new name of the Tea Party?”  The answer to both is, yes there is hope, defiance is alive in the hearts of millions and they are very close to going over the edge presently.  For me, I would call this new rebellion not after the patriots of yesteryear, but after the mythology of the present—I would say that what is happening is part of the Red Pill Rebellion.  Over two years ago I spoke about the red pill versus the blue pill as articulated by the film, The Matrix.  Our modern age is all about waking up to the truth that has always been there, yet was covered up by an entire society addicted to their blue pills of illusion.  More and more people are starting to take the red pill of truth, and they aren’t happy to see what has happened to the world while they slept.  CLICK HERE TO REVIEW.

I will enjoy tearing apart the world that the “Flower Children” made for us, the idiots who supported school levies, the advocates of The Great Society, and the nut jobs who brought America socialism through Social Security.  The world of Barack Obama deserves to perish in its thinly disguised exploitation of the human race in the name of fairness for the ultimate aim of government expansion and control over every human being.  I will laugh as each of their statist policies perishes, and I will laugh with each tear they shed in the coming years.  I despise them, and will enjoy watching the framework of their social destruction dismantle under their own power, and when they turn to others to rob them of resources to maintain their illusion, I will proclaim with any force necessary, “DON’T TREAD ON ME.”  And I will enjoy it thoroughly.

Yes, there is hope, and I would call it The Red Pill Rebellion, and it is growing in force, and effectiveness, partly by default, and partly by momentum.  20 years ago I predicted this age that we are currently in, and it occurred right on time, just as I always said it would.  With the same boldness, I predict the age of The Red Pill Rebellion, and the result of that time is a nightmare to the statists.  Trust me…………….

‘The Naked Communist’ With Matt Clark: The root of the Green Bay Packers

IMAGE_713Over the weekend Matt Clark asked me to do a radio segment based my blog series dedicated to The Naked Communist.  CLICK HERE TO READ THE LATEST.  Of course I agreed even though I was traveling, specifically in the heart of labor union country–Wisconsin.  It was the perfect platform personally for me to do a radio interview as I had been thinking voraciously what the cost of communism brought to America through the labor union movement had been.  The evidence was very easy to see in the blue-collar towns of Wisconsin.  While traveling, a woman sat next to me and told me her life story even though it was quite clear to her that I was trying to read.  She complained about air travel and how cramped the seats were, even as her girth was spilling over into my side.  She complained that the airline companies just wanted to make “profits” by cramming as many people into the plane as they could—that it would make more sense to have more flights per day so people didn’t have to be so cramped.    She then proceeded to declare that automotive travel wasn’t any better.  Modern cars broke down too often and the car companies were greedy and only wanted “profits” and they were evil.  I asked her what companies were supposed to stand for if not for profit, and she said that they should stand behind the people who work for them.  I asked her where she was from, and she stated proudly with a bold Wisconsin accent…………..Madison—the birthplace of the labor movement and progressive party in America.  I said, ah-ha, I understand now.  She smiled a bit wondering what my reference indicated.  I then asked her how she felt about communism—and she went on a half hour tirade about how her father fought against it in Vietnam, and she hung an American flag from her porch every day and was happy to see the communists fail in Russia.  I listened with sadness as she had no idea that the roots of her thinking were fashioned from communism, and that she was a functioning collectivist shaped by progressive Wisconsin politics over the last century.  It was in this context that I gave a very animated interview from my hotel room to Matt Clark during his Saturday radio show on WAAM in Ann Arbor.  Watch and listen:

Wisconsin politics during the 20th Century was shaped by Robert Marion “Fighting Bob”[1] La Follette, Sr. (June 14, 1855 – June 18, 1925) He was an American Republican (and later a Progressive) politician. He served as a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, was the Governor of Wisconsin, and was also a U.S. Senator from Wisconsin (1906 to 1925). He ran for President of the United States as the nominee of his own Progressive Party in1924, carrying Wisconsin and 17% of the national popular vote.

His wife Belle Case La Follette and sons Robert M. La Follette, Jr. and Philip La Follette led his political faction in Wisconsin into the 1940s. La Follette has been called “arguably the most important and recognized leader of the opposition to the growing dominance of corporations over the Government”[2] and is one of the key figures pointed to in Wisconsin‘s long history of political liberalism.

He is best remembered as a proponent of progressivism and a vocal opponent of railroad trustsbossismWorld War I, and the League of Nations. In 1957, a Senate Committee selected La Follette as one of the five greatest U.S. Senators, along with Henry ClayDaniel WebsterJohn C. Calhoun, and Robert Taft. A 1982 survey asking historians to rank the “ten greatest Senators in the nation’s history” based on “accomplishments in office” and “long-range impact on American history,” placed La Follette first, tied with Henry Clay.[3]Robert La Follette is one of five outstanding senators memorialized by portraits in the Senate reception room in US Capitol. One of America’s top schools for public affairs, located at the University of Wisconsin-Madison bears his name.

From 1901 until 1906, La Follette served as Governor of Wisconsin. During his first term, he proposed to set up a railroad commission, imposed an ad valorem tax on the railroad companies, and established a direct primary system. The Stalwarts blocked his agenda, and he refused to compromise with them.

During the 1904 elections, the Stalwarts organized to oppose La Follette’s nomination and moved to block any reform legislation. La Follette began working to unite insurgent Democrats to form a broad coalition. He did manage to secure the passage of the primary bill and some revision to the railroad tax structure.[2]

When the legislative session concluded, La Follette traveled throughout Wisconsin reading the “roll call”; that is, he read the votes of Stalwart Republicans to the people in an effort to elect Progressives. During this campaign, La Follette gained national attention when muckraking journalist Lincoln Steffens began to cover his campaign.

With the press coverage and his successful re-election, La Follette rose to become a national figure. His message against “vast corporate combinations”[2] attracted more journalists and more progressives.

As governor, La Follette championed numerous progressive reforms, including the first workers’ compensation system, railroad rate reform, direct legislation, municipal home rule, open government, the minimum wage, non-partisan elections, the open primary system, direct election of U.S. Senatorswomen’s suffrage, and progressive taxation. He created an atmosphere of close cooperation between the state government and the University of Wisconsin in the development of progressive policy, which became known as the Wisconsin Idea. The goals of his policy included the recall, referendum, direct primary, and initiative. All of these were aimed at giving citizens a more direct role in government. The Wisconsin Idea promoted the idea of grounding legislation on thorough research and expert involvement. To implement this program, La Follette began working with University of Wisconsin–Madison faculty. This made Wisconsin a “laboratory for democracy” and “the most important state for the development of progressive legislation”.[2] As governor, La Follette signed legislation that created the Wisconsin Legislative Reference Library (now Bureau) to ensure that a research agency would be available for the development of legislation.


In 1911, La Follette set up a campaign to mobilize the progressive elements in the Republican Party behind his presidential bid. He made a disastrous speech in February 1912 before a gathering of leading magazine editors that caused many to doubt his stability.[12] Most of his supporters deserted him for Theodore Roosevelt[citation needed].

Embittered, La Follette opposed both Roosevelt and William Howard Taft in the 1912 election. When his former ally, Governor Francis E. McGovern, supported Roosevelt, La Follette broke with him, allowing the conservative Republicans under Emanuel Philipp to take control of Wisconsin in the decisive 1914 election. La Follette’s forces were out of power in the state from 1912 to 1920.[13]

In 1924, the Federated Farmer-Labor Party (FF-LP) sought to nominate La Follette as its candidate. The FF-LP sought to unite all progressive parties into a single national Labor Party.

However, after a bitter convention in 1923, the Communist-controlled Workers Party gained control of the national organization’s structure. Just prior to its 1924 convention in St. Paul, La Follette denounced the Communists and refused to be considered for the FF-LP endorsement. With La Follette’s snub, the FF-LP disintegrated, leaving only the Minnesota Farmer-Labor Party.

Instead, La Follette formed an independent Progressive Party and accepted its nomination in Cleveland with Democratic Senator Burton K. Wheeler of Montana as his running mate. The American Federation of Labor, the Socialist Party of America, the Conference for Progressive Political Action and most of the former supporters of the FF-LP along with various former “Bull Moose” Progressives and Midwestern Progressive movement activists then joined La Follette and supported the Progressive Party.  Many who today call themselves “progressives” sincerely trace their political roots to the Progressive Parties of Teddy Roosevelt, Henry Wallace or Robert La Follette, Sr.  But many others on the left nowadays call themselves “progressives” as a deceptive euphemism for more precise, less popular words that describe their real political objectives and ideology – words such as “socialist,” “Marxist,” or “Communist.”  Even through La Follette denounced the communists during the 1924 convention it was only politically that he separated from them, not ideologically.  He did however attract the softer version of communism to his party affiliation in the American socialists.

Wisconsin as I traveled around it emitted the classic hope of the early 20th Century progressives—vast spans of middle-class residences, labor unions, and a generally anti-corporation mentality.  Socialism was everywhere, even in the Green Bay Packer paraphernalia at the airport the only NFL team that is owned by “the people,” not a corporate owner. All money earned goes back into the club.

The Packers are deeply rooted in the Wisconsin city where they were founded in 1919. They were named after a local meat processing plant, the Indian Packing Company, which paid for the first uniforms. Starting in the 1920s, the Green Bay Football Corp. made a series of public stock offerings. In 1950, 1,900 local residents each put up $25 a share to buy the team.

From the Packers’ web site:

“Green Bay Packers, Inc., has been a publicly owned, non-profit corporation since Aug. 18, 1923, when original articles of incorporation were filed with Wisconsin’s secretary of state.

A total of 4,750,937 shares are owned by 112,120 stockholders — none of whom receives any dividend on the initial investment.

The corporation is governed by a board of directors and a seven-member executive committee.

One of the more remarkable business stories in American history, the team is kept viable by its shareholders — its unselfish fans. Even more incredible, the Packers have survived during the current era, permeated by free agency and the NFL salary cap. And, thanks in large part to Brown County’s passage of the 2000 Lambeau Field referendum, the club will remain solvent and highly competitive well into the future due to its redeveloped stadium.

Fans have come to the team’s financial rescue on several occasions, including four previous stock sales: 1923, 1935, 1950 and 1997.

To protect against someone taking control of the team, the articles of incorporation prohibit any person from owning more than 200,000 shares.”


Silently, many who profess to see communism work in America look at teams like the Green Bay Packers and the progressivism of Wisconsin as hope that socialism and communism will still work.  Not long after my radio interview with Matt, which became quite animated at times, I had the profound desire to return to Florida and bask in the capitalism of the Disney World complex.  Wisconsin and the people there were too bleak and small-minded for me.  They were friendly, but dramatically philosophically limited which was evident in gross abundance by the small town cafes and general business climate.  If not for their dependence on the federal government, their social experiments into communism through the mask of progressivism would have failed long ago.   Suddenly I am a massive Scott Walker fan as it gives me hope that Wisconsin residents are just now pushing away their history of communist acceptance through Robert La Follette, Sr’s progressive party.  As for the woman on the plane with me, she was the kind of person that Matt and I spoke about……..her foundation beliefs were rooted in communism, only she didn’t know it.  She believed falsely, just like the union brothers of Wisconsin, home of the Harley Davidson motorcycle and the dream quest of traveling to Sturgis every August on a freedom driven pilgrimage.  The labor unions and collective ownership the unions, and Harley riders generally subscribe to are experiments in communism advocated by 20th Century politics implemented before the Cold War with the Soviet Union.

There was almost nothing I liked about Wisconsin.  I was never so happy to board an airplane as I was upon leaving.  When the wheels left the runway, and the plane moved into the sky, I could feel the oppressive pull of socialism drifting away beneath my feet.  As I looked through  the window down at the rows and rows of middle-class homes stacked in rows of uniformity I could have been looking down upon a small European town also infected with socialism—soft core communism.  The persistence of that socialism doesn’t dissipate until just south of Chicago where Indiana is now a right-to-work state and Ohio at least outside of Cleveland still embraces capitalism.  I didn’t argue with the woman, I just listened to her while trying to read my book.   She was a mixed up concoction of many political ideologies given to her by years of public education, left-winged controlled media empires, and unionized neighbors who falsely believe they are American patriots just because they stick a flag on the back of their Harley Davidson motorcycle—built in Wisconsin by union workers supporting their publicly owned football team, the Green Bay Packers.  Wisconsin is the result of what The Naked Communist warned about, the continued experiment into socialism at the expense of capitalism and a state I am eager to see turn away  eventually from the communism of the labor movement and an embrace into the kind of capitalism that drives the rest of America.  It is time to close the book on the dark days of communism in America so to save the mind of the poor people of Wisconsin from a doomed philosophy that has left them ignorantly blissful from their lowered expectations and contorted patriotism.

The Lakota Technology Plan: Government creating worthless jobs for political reasons

As stated in a previous article written about the proposed Lakota levy of 2013 due to declining enrollment they are already facing a layoff of many employees—but they plan to ignore it, in favor of finding new, creative ways of employing themselves at taxpayer expense.  When a politician states that government needs to “create jobs” Lakota is the example they are referring to.  In the case of Lakota, they are inventing new ways to have more worthless staff on the payroll of property owners for the sole intention of “creating jobs.”  For the proof, let me direct your attention to the below graphic, which shows what Lakota plans to do with the levy money extracted from the public during the upcoming election.Slide 5

As seen above Lakota plans to create a whole division of new bureaucratic job positions for government workers who wouldn’t exist in the private sector.  Only in government would such a bloated proposal even be considered.  The jobs shown are unnecessary as most of the software these days has intuitive instructions already present and do not require all these employees to serve as middle meddlers of information delivery.  Only a gigantic government driven entity like Lakota would propose such a plan purely for the creation of jobs without being driven by any kind of need, but the whim of a superintendent to use the terminology to garner a levy passage.

If Mantia were to get her levy acceptance and impose on the community of Lakota taxes that would instantly turn off business investment, she would have no problem throwing nearly $1 million dollars in payroll at buying a levy, because her end game is the distribution of the remaining $12 million to the teachers and administration at Lakota who are seeking a minimum raise of $117.50 per month.  As a reminder Mantia also plans to toss $350,000 toward Sheriff Jones to buy his support of the Lakota levy by hiring a few token cops to patrol the hallways of Lakota looking for crazed gunmen intent on shooting rampages—a situation that would be solved with the simple acceptance of the Second Amendment.  Government with its rules makes society more dangerous forcing tax payers to hire police to protect them from harms which could easily be eliminated with a .500 magnum carried by a parent dropping their child off at school.  But that is a story for another time.  Presently, the Lakota Technology Plan is simply the birth of a new bureaucracy which is typical in unionized establishments where jobs and processes are created solely for the benefit of the needless jobs.

Most of the proposed technology intended under the Lakota Technology Plan could be taught to the teachers by the average 8th grader who could figure out and utilize most software applications within five minutes of exposure due to the intuitive nature of modern technology whose intended end users are those same youthful students.  The teachers of technology as unionized employees are by their very nature inefficient in their overly specialized fields of endeavor, and often find their minds limited to learning because of it.  It is these types of people who are supposedly going to teach the teachers who will then teach the students, who could easily teach the “instructional specialists” at the start of the process.  The entire scam is designed not to teach the children—but to give the adult teachers some kind of something to do—just to keep them employed at Lakota—to “create a job.”

What fails at Lakota in this case is the needed question of whether or not the jobs should even exist.  Superintendent Mantia simply proposed the creation of the “Lakota Technology Plan” to toss $1 million dollars of payroll toward the sacrificial cause of passing a school levy to obtain the other $12 million she needs to throw at the LEA union.  Likely, the staff employed under the plan will spend most of their day trying to figure out whether or not they want to go to Chipotle, Wendy’s, or Penera Bread for lunch.  That process will start right around 9:30 in the morning once they’ve updated their Facebook accounts and looked at what all their friends are posting.  Once they figure out where they are going for lunch, then they have to figure out who is going to get it.  That will take an additional hour and a half because in so doing, the gossip about their friends, family and neighbors will ensue.  During lunch they will eat their food and browse the internet shopping on eBay and Amazon.com.  After lunch they will have their eye on the clock for the end of the day and will look online at the television shows they plan to watch when they get home.  While doing that, they will read the latest Hollywood gossip from the various entertainment sites talking about who is sleeping with whom, and what the Kardashions are doing lately.  Rumor has it that Bruce Jenner—the Kardashions father—wants to be a woman.  That will evoke talk that will carry these employees through to the end of the day.  Out of a 40 hour work week, these employees might do 2.5 hours of actual productive work, and they will be paid around $65K per year to do it by Lakota—if the levy passes.

Nobody will manage these people because nobody will care.  Mantia certainly won’t be busting into their department unannounced to catch them on the internet playing around all day because she won’t care—she will have already gotten what she needed out of them—money to cover the cost of the LEA contract.  For all she cares, those Lakota Technology Plan employees can take the rest of the year off with pay, because they served her purpose.  Now, of course I can’t know exactly what is going on in Mantia’s mind and without question when pressed she will deny these things.  But I see through it, and she knows I do.  I know her.  I also know management, I know labor behavior practices, and I understand politics all too well, and my scenario whether it is the intended result or not, will be the reality.  It will be the result of her $1 million dollars in proposed payroll.  The direct benefactors will Chipotle, Wendy’s, Penera Bread, eBay, and Amazon.com.  The suckers will be the Lakota tax payers if they do anything other than vote NO on the proposed levy.   But children will not be taught anything about technology by these new employees—if anything it will be the other way around.

West Chester Trustee Lee Wong’s East Avenue Adventures: Meet the prostitute Robin McDaniel

Now it all makes sense why Lee Wong, the West Chester trustee looking for votes in the upcoming November 2013 election, wants to build so many sidewalks and bike paths.  CLICK HERE TO REVIEW.  Apparently he frequents the solicitation areas around town where known prostitutes reside and he wants to extend their reach with a sidewalk network extending from the slums of Hamilton into the paradise of West Chester for his own convenience.  That is the only assumption that can be made after reading the report shown below from Wayne Gilkison to Gary Yates of the Butler County Common Pleas Court General Division.  Have a look for yourself. Lee Wong

The first question I had upon reading that statement was who Robin McDaniel was and why would Lee Wong even ask if she was “working.”  I imagined that after having a lifestyle in West Chester full of clean human beings who use deodorant, perfume, and vehicles with perpetual new car smells, a woman must really be something to evoke solicitation requests, at least according to the prostitute in her statements to Jeanna Jacobs.  Well…………………..as it turns out there was a major prostitution sting in Hamilton not long ago that was covered by the Hamilton Journal and several other news outlets and Robin was one of them.  Her mug shot can be seen as follows. Robin McDaniel

I thought this whole thing was a joke, but apparently it’s not.  This is the woman West Chester Trustee Lee Wong asked if she was “working,” and I doubt he meant washing cars, or cooking in a restaurant.  McDaniel sold herself as a sidewalk salesman for the world’s oldest profession, and she looks like she was there at the beginning.  After reading the statement by Gilkison it seems that Lee Wong wishes to save some gas money so the sidewalk sluts can provide solicitation closer to home, answering the question why Mr. Wong desires so many sidewalks built in West Chester.  It is the only assumption that makes sense.

Here were the circumstances of McDaniel’s recent arrest, along with several others reported by the Hamilton Journal:

HAMILTON — More than a dozen people were arrested during a prostitution sting operation Thursday by the Hamilton Police Department.


The HPD Vice Unit was assisted by patrol officers in arresting five men who solicited an undercover officer for sex in exchange for money and five women who offered undercover officers sex for money, Hamilton police announced today. In addition, one woman was arrested for “loitering to engage in solicitation” and two men were arrested on drug charges, police said.


Police said the following were charged with soliciting: Laurencio Juarez-Chavez, 33; Michael Doelter Jr., 19; Mark Napier, 39; Douglas Rieser, 46; Luis Gonzalez, 19; Heather Burnett, 29 (also charged with two outstanding warrants); Jamie Prater, 26; Debbie Agee, 46; Tanya Wilson, 53; Laurie Garrett, 37 (two counts). Police said Robin McDaniel, 41, was charged with loitering to engage in solicitation; Bryant Johnson Jr., 19, was charged with possession of crack cocaine; and Torriauno McCullough, 20, was charged with abusing crack cocaine.



What a stimulating crowd, and it’s nice to see that Lee was going into that neighborhood to check up on them.  He lives very close to me, and I can’t say that I’ve come close to driving down East Avenue in Hamilton except for a couple of times during the last decade where I attended funeral visitations close to that location, or to see Sheriff Jones.  I can count the times on three fingers.  It’s just not the kind of place a person goes to purchase a gallon of milk, or buy a newspaper off the newsstand.  Why would anyone go to such a place when they live in Beckett Ridge and have Jags as a restaurant nearly at their doorway?    Is it to solicit prostitutes like Robin McDaniel?  According to the McDaniel, that was why Lee was in that part of town and asking her the kind of questions he was.

After looking at Robin’s mug shot, I’m sure Lee wasn’t the only one to ask her if “she was working,” that night, which is even more disgusting.  A man would have to have a pretty wrecked sex life to even think about going out of their way to have any kind of interaction with a person who is obviously abusing themselves as much as that prostitute has.  A man who has must have their judgment seriously questioned.  It’s not against the law to be stupid, reckless, or even personally abusive.  It’s a free country and if people like Lee want to hang out on East Avenue scouting out the talent walking the sidewalks there—he can certainly do it.  It’s against the law, but what isn’t these days.  That doesn’t mean Wong should be a West Chester Trustee.  There are better candidates who exercise far better judgment, and they should get a chance.

Whether or not Lee Wong intended to engage in sex with the known prostitute on East Avenue by the name of Robin McDaniel, I can think of about 1 million things that are better to do at night than driving down East Avenue for any reason—especially living in West Chester.  Any man who does find themselves looking for some sexual relief in the bad parts of Hamilton have issues that are detrimental to themselves and are likely carrying over into their professions, and families—and that is simply reprehensible.  That being the case Lee needs help, but what he doesn’t need is another term as trustee of West Chester where critical decisions about the community’s future need to be made quickly—and correctly.  And that is pretty hard to do when desiring sex with East Avenue prostitutes is on the radar of desired recreational activities.

Lakota Employees Seeking A $117.50 Per Month Pay Raise: The hidden intention of the 2013 Levy

Even some of my most bizarre claims written about here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom will prove over time and lack of emotional investment to be correct.  Truth is often stranger than any fiction, and the blackness of the hearts behind politics are more sinister than a conscious mind can often allow itself to comprehend.  And this has never been more true than the Lakota levy of 2013 where the claim of necessity has been the safety of students from unforeseen dangers, assistance to the parents by returning some busing privileges, and a maintenance of real estate values to the Lakota community.  The reality is much, much grimmer than that, and once it is understood and accepted reveals the true intention of the proposed tax increase, which can be seen in the following chart.  Lakota employees stand to make after the acceptance of the tax increase at least $117.50 more per month with the proposed raises lined up for a 2014 teacher’s contract with the LEA.  As wages in the private sector have hovered around stagnation, and the economy through government tampering has flat lined, government workers here in the form of Lakota teachers and administrators seek to defy market value with forced tax increases to do nothing but pad their own pockets with looted money—stolen through coercion and deceits.Slide 4

The coercion and deceits are the emotional pleas and out-right lies about the status of the Lakota finances and the cause of educational failure.  Lakota uses children as emotional hostages to move voters into seeing their point of view.  As government workers they are using the same strategy that was so evident during the government shutdown where even the Great Smoky Mountains was shut down to inconvenience visitors into voting for politicians who will continue throwing money into a bottomless pit of inefficiency, and unregulated spending.  Even when Blount County police offered to keep the park open by doing the job of the park rangers, it was rejected for the same reason that Lakota would never allow a person like me to step in and run Lakota from the teaching side, or the finance side the way it should be properly.  The goal is never to solve the problem in government, but only to create more if the terms are not meant.  In Lakota’s situation, they propose less pain to the community if they get a tax increase, but the only thing that will change is that the employees will get a raise when their current wages are already too high and most of their positions are completely unneeded.  Most of the assistant positions at Lakota could be eliminated completely without having any impact on education.  Many jobs at the administrative level were created by government for the benefit of government.  Most of the employees at Lakota outside of direct supervision spend most of their day gossiping to one another and playing on the internet.  They don’t do much, yet they expect to get a raise in pay when they already average over 30% more in compensation than the average Lakota tax payer.

The Lakota levy is about nothing but money and they are more than willing to use the children of the community as strategic bargaining chips of pure extortion to protect themselves from more economic bad times ahead.  2014 will also bring additional costs to the average tax payer of Lakota through the Obamacare impact that will drive up insurance premiums from one of the largest socialist programs ever attempted against the American people with the most intrusive wealth redistribution scam ever conducted.  The exact cost of that intrusion will not be known until insurance companies figure out how much they are allowed to drive up their costs now that they are even more of an oligopoly than they were before, as the federal government has just guaranteed their existence and profitability.  Just for being born, every living, breathing citizen is now required to purchase the product of health insurance as choice has been removed.  (No wonder insurance companies supported Obama on this matter)  It is an arrangement by the federal government for the good of itself.  Similarly, Lakota is doing the same thing.  Every human being born is required by the federal government to get an education approved by the state.  For most children that means the public school that dominates the politics of their local community.  No matter how good the school is, or bad, there isn’t any choice in the matter.  If school is not attended, and taxes paid to it, coercion will be used to either jail the perpetrators, or seize the property for lack of payment.  The threat of coercion keeps everyone paying money through taxes even when they know it’s fundamentally wrong.  Lakota knows this, so they can get by with their exploitation of their students and the parents because government has given them a monopoly over the education process, so performance is never the issue.  Lakota is free to hire unneeded staff to “create jobs, or go on strike through their education union to drive up their wage rates.  But make no mistake about it, the Lakota levy is about nothing other than giving the employees at Lakota an average pay raise of $117.50 per month.

Most every tax payer in Lakota during 2014 will pay a lot more in either taxes or health insurance premiums—likely both.  Most families could easily be paying more than $150 per month in 2014 for the same level of insurance as they had in 2013 just because of the wealth redistribution plan enacted by the government against them and on top of that, Social Security is set to increase as well.  Then there is the Lakota levy where yet another inefficient government blob of incestuous public employees wish to raise taxes on the same tax base that is already hurting—and the only reason they are doing it is because the employees at Lakota want a pay raise, when most of the tax payers contributing to the school have no prospect of any kind of raise in the foreseeable future.  Some of them will likely lose their jobs once Obamacare kicks in.   Employers will not be able to afford carrying them any longer due to the cost increases.  But Lakota doesn’t care because whenever they get into trouble they can afford to carry all their employees even when declining enrollment states they should have a massive layoff.  Lakota can do this because the federal government has given them coercive power over property owners due to a monopoly status.  When Lakota needs more money they just propose a tax increase and promise that the children of the tax payers will not be harmed if the money is paid.

Meanwhile the umbrella of the federal government through now health care, through Social Security, and especially education hits the same tax payers year after year with cost increases where they nickel and dime every productive citizen until there isn’t anything left—and they don’t care whether or not the system is sustainable or not.  They are government, and they only want what they want and don’t care about the expense.  Lakota is a government entity—nothing more or less.  And they want their minimum pay raises of $117.50 per month and they could care less what it does to the rest of their community.  For that reason alone, every person of right mind should VOTE NO on the Lakota levy, and they should not feel ashamed in any way.  Saying NO is the only measure of fiscal restraint that there is against such a system that is parasitic in nature, and destructive in every way conceivable extending well beyond the wildest conspiracy theory.  Saying NO is a responsibility dedicated to good judgment in the face of an encroaching evil known as the federal government which looks to feed off the innocent for the benefit of its own growth and social imposition.

The Truth Behind Obamacare: Wisdom from a constitutional attorney

Obamacare is the most obvious encroachment of socialism into the lives of every American ever attempted.  It is an unequivocal intrusion of socialism against freedom.  It is an attack against the American Constitution by lawyer types looking to build their own legacy defiling the first attempt in human history at self-rule and individual freedom.  Most of the time I cover topics based on my own viewpoints.  However, occasionally I read something that drills home a subject in a way that I admire, and one such articulation of obscure analysis on the subject of Obamacare can be seen below—as interpreted by a constitutional lawyer.   He has read the entire bill, and provides a review based on those facts.  I have not read the entire bill, and I never will.  Before I follow that law….Obamacare…….I will break the law before I waste my life reading that crap.  But this guy has, and everyone should read his opinion.  So I present it to you as it was sent to me.  And I suggest that you send it dear reader to a friend or family member who needs to hear it.

A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed health
care bill. Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish.

The Truth About the Health Care Bills 

Michael Connelly, Ret.
Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House
Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied
it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional
law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were
being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse
than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its
implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media
are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care,
particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are
involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion
services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of
the medical profession.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of
business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions
about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal
bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals.
Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of
necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In
fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of
providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient
cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of
government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this
law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of
the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power
between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S.
Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama
Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives
of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate
in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text
of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members
of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the
Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct
violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the
Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the
information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is
a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also
forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into
oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private
insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices
Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you.
It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid
application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment . However ,
that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows
you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely
depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so
much, out of the original ten in the Bill of Rights ,that are effectively
nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides : The enumeration in the Constitution,
of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others
retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states : The powers not delegated to the United
States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are
preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the
provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people
nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many
areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you
get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power
and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the
members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation
to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not
be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without
feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted
for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they
consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights . There you
can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

Sheriff Jones Wants Cops In Lakota: The hidden danger of authority figures mixed with teenagers

I previously wrote about Sheriff Jones and his support of the Lakota school levy of 2013.  But it is important to understand the context of the Letter to the Editor he submitted to Today’s Pulse on Sunday, October 20, 2013.  In it Jones addressed his concern for increased school security that many government workers such as cops and teachers have sought to exploit in the wake of the Sandy Hook shooting.  Some of those exploitations are genuine concern, but most are parasitic attempts to pad the yearly budget approvals of their positions.  In Jones’ case if the Lakota levy is passed, the school has designated that $350,000 per year will go to security which helps employ more police officers, so as Sheriff of Butler County, and opponent of Senate Bill 5 and a major union supporter, Jones is looking out for his union brothers in law enforcement by aligning them with his friends in education.  Have a look at the Jones letter in favor of the Lakota levy.

Lakota is Taking security Seriously


School levies are never an easy topic to talk about and, as sheriff, it is not really part o my duties to actually deal with them.  But there is on levy coming up on the November ballot that I am willing to talk about – the Lakota School District levy.   Most of the funds from the proposed levy will go for things that it seems all schools have to contend with — like academic programs, technology hardware and software etc.  That’s all fine and good, but this levy also goes further, and actually sets aside funds for a topic that is of much greater concern to me – security! 

Our nation has seen several tragic in-school shootings over the last few years.  I have been very vocal in expressing my personal thoughts on how to make our schools safer by either putting more deputies/officers into the schools, or arming specially trained school personnel.  There are those who say that costs too much money, or is going too far in wanting to arm civilians.  I have proposed several other options, but a lot of school districts seem to have failed to even attempt to beef up security. 

The Lakota School District has been one of a few that have sought input from my office concerning school security.  Several recommendations were made.  I am proud to say that Lakota actually listened, and put together a plan that incorporates what I believe are several key components. 

While not publically discussing the intimate details (for security reasons) of that plan, it does call for one-time funding of physical changes within the schools themselves – upgrading alarms, cameras, retooling doors and entry areas, and the like. 

Most important, in my opinion, the plan also calls for tripling the number of on-duty uniformed sheriff’s deputies and West Chester Twp. Police officers assigned to work specifically in the Lakota schools.  Unfortunately, no plan in the world can ever guarantee absolute safety.  Yet you can’t just say, “I hoe something terrible never happens here.” 

When it comes to school security, there comes a time to take action, not just talk about it.  I like that Lakota is taking security seriously and wants to take action to make our school, students and teachers safer.  I use the word “our” because both of my children graduated from Lakota, and I am still a taxpayer within the Lakota district.  This levy is important to me personally. 

The economy in general has suffered greatly the last several years.  Everyone has had to learn to “do more with less.”  It seems everyone has had budget cuts.  But you just can’t cut forever.  Sooner or later, you have to realize that some things are important enough to pay for.  Only the voters will actually decide the outcome of the Lakota school levy and everything that it will fund. 

I support the Lakota school levy and urge everyone to do the same.  Pass this levy, it’s time. 

Richard K. Jones

Liberty Twp


Spoken like a real government worker.  In the world of Jones, as an authority figure, and popular local politician who has is fingers deep in the Republican party and attempts to curry favor with Tea Party types while also saddling up to unionized interests he represents everything that is wrong with government.  His support of the Lakota levy, especially this time is to get the proportionally small amount of money that has been promised to him if the levy passes for his police officers.  Lakota has a deal with Jones – they are essentially buying his support to employ more police officers and using a school tragedy to advance both positions.  Parents are concerned about safety after a highly covered mass school shooting, and these government workers are looking to exploit it.

But the real problem here is a little less obvious, and might seem minor if not looked at on its own.  When I submit a Letter to the Editor the word count limit is 300 words.  Those are the rules.  When anybody else submits a Letter to the Editor, the word count is 300 words.  I often compose my letters right at 300 squeezing everything I can out of the space—the way the rules dictate.  The Jones letter shown above is 489 words, 189 words over the limit.  This small little detail says everything.

Jones is a public official of noted popularity so obviously the newspaper applied different rules for him.  They allowed him to exceed the limit of their word count.  Police in general have this luxury in society, they often can speed without being pulled over—when they do, their brothers let them off the hook, and they can break the law anytime they want—all they have to do is flip on their lights and proceed through an intersection ignoring the laws.  They do the same thing with budgets.  When they need more money, they simply write more speeding tickets to fill up their treasury.  They are trolls collecting tolls most of the time, aside from the occasional domestic violence issue that arises every now and then.  When the police need their budget approved, or need a public relations victory, they make an occasional drug bust so they can get into the newspapers and make everyone think they are doing a good job.

I’m sure Jones knows everyone in Butler County who buys, sells, or is involved in any notable way to the drug trade.  Yet only occasionally are drug busts conducted and even then, it’s always some stupid kids who play into the immigration reform debate.  I know that there is a lot more drug activity going on that does not get coverage and if I were the police, they would be busted, but they aren’t – so why is it?

The fact of the matter is that there are different rules in society for different people.  People on the political inside, who are part of the accepted system, have one set of rules, and people on the outside have another set of rules.  Cops function from different rules than the civilian population.  They will argue that they are protecting society, and there is no evidence that they are doing anything other than such an activity, because there is not yet technology that can read minds.  But in knowing some of these law enforcement types, they are like the college kids who run around dorm rooms with fake FBI badges telling girls they must inspect their bras and panties for their own good and safety.  After they feel-out the girls, they reveal that they are not part of the Federal Bureau of Investigations looking for terrorists, but Female Body Inspectors looking to feel-out hot chicks who are half drunk on a Friday night.  For the kids and the actual FBI agent it’s all harmless fun.  But for the victim, it’s not so wonderful.  They live under different rules than the cops, so even if the authority figure is legitimate or not, they must comply or face arrest.  If the cop makes such a mistake, they get off with a warning over beer and nachos.

Putting more cops in schools sounds like a recipe for disaster.  It’s like putting a wolf in the hen house.  I know of several incidents where cops in Hamilton were relieved of their duty forcing young girls pulled over to perform sexual acts to keep from getting a ticket.  How do I know, because one of those two knuckle draggers called me for a referral.  I knew their wife who was also a cop, and a network of police that extended from Springboro to Clermont County and the amount of sexual play that goes on between police officers is pathetic.  That officer called me after he lost his job in Hamilton from another state needing a good word badly.  Of course he didn’t get it.

It might seem like a little thing to Jones and the editors at Today’s Pulse to give the Sheriff an extra 189 words, but what they are declaring is that the Sheriff lives by different rules than the rest of us, and the police generally know it.  It is not safe to put a bunch of cops in a school with a bunch of teenage girls, unless they are all retired and have had their prostrates removed.  Just having an officer of the law in a school with a gun does not make children safe.  It might keep children from getting killed by a deranged gunman, but it might introduce dangers that are nearly as corrosive to the lives of children who really don’t need the hassle.

The TSA was created because of panic by society and a government quick to exploit it.  Now it is impossible to fly anywhere commercially without some pencil-neck looking at our private parts on a monitor or feeling out some attractive woman who happens to come through security.  And these days, just because a man is checking a man, and a woman is checking a woman, it doesn’t mean the officer isn’t getting a rise out of the experience.  As social resistance toward homosexuality lowers, the chances of some guy enjoying feeling out the bulge of a weary traveler increases dramatically, or some lesbian caressing a female passenger’s breasts—all in the name of safety.

Sheriff Jones can go on WLW and declare to his buddy Bill that I’m overacting, and that it’s unpatriotic to question the merit of police officers, but the evidence that cops live under different rules than the rest of us is shown above.  Today’s Pulse gave Sheriff Jones 489 words to support a Lakota levy, which is an obvious payoff for his support. And nobody is supposed to question the support because we are supposed to trust law enforcement.  Meanwhile, there are drug deals being conducted in the open and in large quantities, the immigration issue is out of control as far as what gets smuggled in and out of Butler County – because of the affluence–and the only way the Sheriff can find to keep $350,000 worth of payroll busy is put them in Lakota schools.  Something is very fishy.

What would happen if I tried to write more than 300 words in Today’s Pulse, or anybody else?  The editor would call us and ask how we could trim down our submissions to fit the guidelines.  If it’s a government worker like Superintendent Mantia who gets her own column, or Sheriff Jones, the rules go out the window.

So what would happen if police were put in charge of watching over thousands of teenagers armed with guns and authority?  Most of the police would be sincere—but a few—a few would take advantage of the situation.  You can bet on that.

Keep the cops out of the schools……………………for the safety of the kids.  This isn’t an isolated problem.  Its epidemic.  Who in their right mind thinks Lakota can keep abuse from happening when they can’t even keep teachers from sexting students?  Knowing Jones a bit, I can say that Jones is not a bad man, and publicly he will defend his officers because law enforcement is all he knows, he’s done it his entire life.  To admit anything of the facts presented in the above videos to himself would be a failure in belief of all his intellectual foundations.  Jones upon reading this I’m sure will say………….”hey, I didn’t make up the system, I’m just making do with what I’ve got.  I’m just the sheriff.”  But the trouble is, until somebody questions that system and stands up against it with a mirror, it only gets worse and worse and worse.  For that reason, Jones is wrong in supporting the Lakota levy for all the reasons mentioned and more that could fill volumes of books.  But the biggest is that Jones is only the sheriff, and he wishes to keep his fellow law enforcement officers relevant in a society that is becoming increasingly weary of the laws politicians created in the first place–so the trend is to grip tighter, which is the wrong thing.  It would be wrong to put police in Lakota because cops are human beings, and they are fallible.  And that fallibility is more dangerous than the remote chance that Sandy Hook could happen at Lakota, as the random odds of destruction intellectually is much, much greater with more authority figures in place to abuse power unregulated.

Justin Binik-Thomas For Deer Park School Board: Listen to him on the air with Matt Clark

If you live in the Deer Park school district then you know by now  you are lucky to have the opportunity to vote for Justin Binick-Thomas for school board.  Justin rightly believes that he can solve some of the education issues that are going on in Ohio from the inside and he’s putting his time and money where his mouth is.  Justin is a friend of mine, so I know he is beyond corruption, and I couldn’t think of a better mind than his to work on school board.  There will not be any sending Justin Binick-Thomas to a OSBA conference in Columbus and expecting him to become indoctrinated by the education empire of statism.  Rather, Justin’s heart is pure, and he is as righteous as anyone can expect.  This is why he was on the WAAM radio in Ann Arbor, Michigan over this past weekend to talk to another friend of mine, Matt Clark during the Clarkcast—saving the Republic one broadcast at a time.

It might be remembered that Justin is the guy at the center of the IRS scandal as he was targeted directly by the IRS as one of the founders of the Cincinnati Tea Party.  During the broadcast with Matt, Justin spoke a bit about the current status of that particular scandal which is ongoing.   Justin also spoke about the nature of Common Core and his thoughts about state dictated education practices versus those driven from the kind of school boards he is attempting to become a member of.

The way it was supposed to work is that good school boards had direct control over their costs, and the educational content.   Some school districts would naturally be better than others so families would be attracted to school districts that were of a higher quality than school districts that were poorly run.  The education system was conceived with competition in mind, and this was to reflect the capitalist nature of American education.  However, labor unions over the last 50 years have lobbied hard to remove competition from the education system, and following the socialist model of their founding sought to make all school districts equal no matter what their location which has culminated in complete state-run education dictated from WashingtonD.C. in the form of Common Core.

Justin’s attempt in running for school board is to reverse this corrosive trend and wrestle away from state control those items in education that belong under the control of communities.  Still school boards insist during each election that school levies should be passed so that they can manage their districts, but due to union control modern school boards have little power over anything but to raise money for their unions which have infected their districts like insects.  Justin will not be this kind of school board member.

Education as it is today is dictated by the state departments of education and school districts are left to deal with the aftermath of all the unfunded mandates.  Children are the direct victims of this policy and the danger of ruining the minds of entire generations with concepts of statism is alarmingly evident.  Justin is offering the people of Deer Park the kind of school board member who truly has the values of his community at heart, before the federal Department of Education was created in 1979, before President Bush’s “No Child Left Behind” statism, and now Common Core—all attempts of by the federal government to control education with the same vigor they wish to control the environment, the economy, health care, and virtually every aspect of human life.  Justin Binik-Thomas is offering to be the kind of school board member that was often elected prior to those government intrusions, and that is a rare find.

A vote for Justin Binik-Thomas is the best thing you can do for your child if you live in the Deer Park school district and care about the education your child is getting.  I often say that modern schools are just glorified baby sitting services driven by union radicalism demanding extraordinary pay for the employees.  Justin is an old-fashioned candidate who has all the ability to retake American education one district at a time starting with his own.  A vote for Justin is a vote for goodness, intelligence, and a better America by inspiring children with a real education, instead of the crap they are given through modern state-run institutions.

Say NO To Perverts At Lakota: Sex, Sex, and More Sex–three times in four months during a levy campaign

Sex, and sex and more sex at Lakota schools with underage girls.  The reckless antics by Lakota employees continue even under the microscope of tax increase attempts going on the ballot.  For the third time in four months a full or part-time Lakota employee has been accused of having improper communications or contact with female students, as reported by the Cincinnati Enquirer.  The situation is so out of control that it is absolutely terrifying to consider how many of these employees have not yet been caught.

“In July, an Enquirer search of public records revealed that a full-time Lakota West math teacher – George Merk – had his teaching license suspended for 45 days during the summer break under an agreement with state education officials.

Merk admitted to state official’s improper behavior in communicating with some students but did not cross into physical contact.

And later in July, Robert E. Supinger, a long-term substitute teacher at Lakota West, was accused of kissing a student whom he also took to meet his parents.

Supinger was investigated by Lakota officials while he was teaching during the 2011-12 school year. Last July, state education officials revoked the 25-year-old Supinger’s teaching license; he is no longer allowed to teach in Ohio.”


If you are stupid………….and I mean really, really stupid, join the levy cheerleaders on the For Lakota website in supporting the child molesters who are employed by Lakota.   If you are smart, articulate and speak in complete sentences join the rest of the Lakota school district at the No Lakota Levy website where truth, justice and the American way are all that keep these parasites from having unfettered access to the wealth of Liberty Twp and West Chester property values.

And if you have a daughter and think they are safe at Lakota schools…………..you are stupid!

Really, stupid.

Libby Williams Letter To The Editor: All the reasons to vote NO on the 2013 Lakota Levy

Obviously the supporters of the 2013 Lakota levy have no idea how things work in the private sector.  Only in government could they say the kind of things they do and expect to get away with it.  In journalism, at least the way the industry used to be, editors would force answers to questions, who, what, why, when and where.  In manufacturing, the standard question when something is amiss would be to identify the “five whys.”  But with Lakota schools and the levy cheerleaders advocating tax increases upon a community for some mythical reason, let us identify the Letter to the Editor of Libby Williams who is this time around the Lakota Levy Chairperson for the tax increase.  What is shown below is the letter Libby wrote unedited as it appeared in Today’s Pulse, Sunday, October 20, 2013.No Lakota Slide 3 B

Keep Lakota Excellence a Priority

For the last two years, our district leaders have been listening.  They met with parents, business leaders, seniors, supporters, and nonsuppoters alike to find out what our community desires from their schools.  Those thoughts, paired with the knowledge of what our students’ needs are for a quality and sustainable education, were used to determine the levy that we have on the ballot Nov. 5.

We have seen over $20 million in cuts to programs and people.  Over 600 students can no longer participate in activities because they are cost prohibitive.  Those changers are starting to affect our product – out students.

Let’s keep quality and excellence a priority.  Join me in voting yes for Lakota – either at the board of elections before Nov. or at your precinct on Election Day.

Every vote counts to help get our schools and our community back on track.  We are Lakota, and we need you.

Libby Williams

Lakota Levy Chair

Liberty Twp.

Without question Libby is just a nice concerned parent who wants what she thinks is best for her child. Every time there is one of these levy attempts Lakota’s management finds a few neurotic parents to use for their needs, so I won’t lambast the poor woman needlessly.   The world is full of people like this pro tax chairperson For Lakota that are full of good intentions.  However, it must be remembered that the path to hell is always paved with good intentions.  In fact, most of the time, the path to hell is an 8 lane highway while the path to heaven is a dirt road nearly covered with grown over grass.  The path to hell is always lined with all the fun stuff, the emotional eye candy, while the path to heaven is uneventful and rather desolate, so the former has a lot more attraction over the latter, but the facts remain.  So in order to ascertain the ridiculousness of the statements provided in the pro tax letter, let us apply the industry standard “Five Whys” to understand that the statements from Libby are simply those from a Lakota cheerleader and have nothing to do with the conditions of the game being played.  Let’s look now at some of the key parts of Libby’s letter and provide the proper questions analyzed the way the private sector does.  After each “WHY” I will provide the answer.

For the last two years, our district leaders have been listening.  They met with parents, business leaders, seniors, supporters, and nonsuppoters alike to find out what our community desires from their schools

  1. 1.       Why did the “leaders” meet?
    1. a.      Obviously Mantia and the school board were using a proven Saul Alinsky method of consensus building where they spent many tens of thousands of tax dollars on the Jeffery Stec facilitator methods of gathering everyone together and letting them vent with a kind of “group hug” mentality.  Lakota never planned to “listen” to anybody they only planned to let people believe it so that unity could be formed in those collaborations. 
    2. 2.       Why did the leaders believe they needed to listen to the community after three elections told them the answer?
      1. a.      The over 18,000 voters who cast NO votes during the last election was all the voice of the community Lakota needed.  Yet they chose to ignore those elections and spend even greater money on building “teamwork.”  No Lakota Levy actually hosted some of these events.  It was obvious that Mantia believed that these consensus building exercises would take the edge off the tempers and bring the community around to seeing things her way.  Once she had all the different groups together who opposed her tax increases in front of Jeffery she believed that they would not oppose her in the next election.  She never planned to listen, only to take the edge off everyone’s tempers.  Obviously now that the signs for No Lakota Levy are out again, and there are ads in the paper, a new website and more people than ever wanting to join No Lakota Levy, those efforts, and the many thousands of dollars they cost, were a complete waste. 
      2. 3.       Why two years, were they hoping that voters would forget about the previous three defeats and the conditions contributing to those defeats?  Did they hope that No Lakota Levy would disband and go back to other business?  Did they hope that I would lose the desire to engage the situation and move on to something else?  What is so important about waiting two years?
        1. a.      Lakota obviously believed that the “Rich Hoffman” era of tax resistance would fade if they stopped throwing fuel on the fire.  This time around they have made a point not to engage directly with aggression hoping to soften their image after my exposure of their antics over the years.  They determined to prove that they were the opposite of everything I have said about them.  So they cut a deal with me through No Lakota Levy to back off and let them recover their public image—which I agreed to so to save the community further grief.  A two year break at the ballot box was worth it.  But the minute they announced their intentions, it was time to get back to work.  Now they have what I promised in the Cincinnati Enquirer two years ago when they came after me with all their blazing guns, which backfired—that in the next election they would have to worry about two tax opponents instead of one, and since I wasn’t working with No Lakota Levy any longer, I would be free to speak my mind, instead of the softer dialogue I used before as a spokesman to a group who didn’t feel the kind of conviction I do against public education in general.
        2. 4.       When they met with those groups, why did Lakota then determine that it was OK to put on a levy when many of those groups expressed that taxes were too high already?
          1. a.      After the last levy, and during the “community conversations” Lakota was told they needed to reduce their wages at Lakota by 5%.  However, Lakota decided not to listen to that statement and proceed on with further wage increases for 2014 when a new union contract is coming due.  When property owners told Jeffery and the gang that taxes were already too high, there was a lot of head nodding, but no action taken, purposely. 
          2. 5.       Why does Lakota believe listening is enough?  Why is “action” on that information not pursued?  Anyone can listen, but it’s what is done with the information that is more important.
            1. a.      This is the typical reaction of any government institution. They will do what they determine to be best.  When they “listen” they only hope to pull you into their line of thinking.  They will not yield their position.  They only care to advance matters further to the political left.  By listening, they hope that through kindness they can pull people over to their beliefs.  But they never had any intention of taking community suggestions applying them to the business side of the Lakota levy.  They only hoped to delay a tax increase for a short time and let tempers cool so they could try again before the 2014 union contract negotiations.  That was their only objective during the entire time.  

Those thoughts, paired with the knowledge of what our students’ needs are for a quality and sustainable education, were used to determine the levy that we have on the ballot Nov. 5. 

  1. 1.       Why is “quality” in question?
    1. a.      As it has been stated here at Overmanwarrior’s Wisdom many times, Lakota is a good school not because of the employees they have, but due to the kind of parents of the students themselves.  Most of the families producing the children at Lakota at least care about their kids, they have nice homes, nice jobs, and nice cars with Blue Ray players in the back seats for kids to watch while being shuttled around from one activity to another—the parents at least are engaged in their children’s lives.  There aren’t many neighborhoods in the Lakota district filled with degenerate welfare recipients and unmanaged children with token “baby mommas.”  Most parents at least care about their children’s futures, even if that concern often gets translated into neurosis.  So Lakota is starting with kids who have a generally good home life, which is the key to raising successful children.  Lakota’s success is due exclusively to the quality of their students, not the quality of the staff.  I have said many times, all the employees at Lakota could be fired and replaced with new employees’ right out of college, and the results would be the same, because the kids and their parents are better than in areas around Cincinnati where strong family values are not recognized. 
    2. 2.       How does money create quality, and why is money short at Lakota?
      1. a.      Money does not create quality, so there is no statistic that Lakota can present to justify the over $60K average that employees at Lakota make through their collective bargaining agreements.  Money is paid to reward those who are exceptional—but through the union collective bargaining agreement the exceptional and the bad all get paid together.  The teacher who really cares about the life of their students gets paid on a scale the same as the sexual deviant who is trying to “bang” the mother one of his students, (You know who you are cocksucker) or send sexually provocative texts to their students hoping to get back naked pictures of teenagers in heat.  This whole collective bargaining concept is an absolute joke, and should be abolished. The politicians who allowed the union lobby to shove them in this direction in the 1980s should be walked off a short plank into a sea of sharks and piranhas, and we should never look back!  And no, I do not like bad people, or those who are up to no good.  I especially do not like to be forced to pay for these scum bags with my tax money. 
      2. 3.       Why are student needs connected to the radicalism of labor disputes?
        1. a.      We saw the same tactic during the recent government shutdown, parks were closed, monuments roped off, while President Obama spent $4 million to fly to Hawaii on Air Force One.  The bussing cuts, the pay to play fees, the cuts in electives, and every painful imposition at Lakota was done to hurt the tax payer by hurting their children.  Meanwhile the teachers are banging each other and trying to seduce their students with a Brave New World orgy porgy mentality. (Go ahead, click the link to see the truth). It is so common I am tired of hearing about all the incidents.  The behavior is reckless, and pathetic.  Lakota wants to justify their collective bargaining agreement with their employees which averages over $63K per year!  To protect that, they will put the hurt on children and their parents in a New York minute—and that is the exclusive reason that students have suffered.  It was Superintendent Mantia’s call, her fault, and her track record that she now has to defend. 
        2. 4.       Why is education not sustainable?
          1. a.      Lakota has maintained an Excellent with Distinction now every year for a decade in spite of not having a levy passed since 2005.  I fought that levy back in 2005 too, and so my resistance to taxes is not new.  The quality of the school is not determined by the administrators or the teachers; it is determined by the parents—as stated.  The Excellence with Distinction is a scam that is awarded to superintendents who are good at playing the political angle.  It has nothing to do with quality.  Lakota is in the tough position of having to make a decision to deliberately wreck their ranking so they can justify their tax increases, or letting it resume being good proving that money does not equate to quality.  That strategy was implemented long ago to draw out this very purpose, and the results are clear.   Their comments that the education level is not sustainable is deliberately vague, the sustainability of the wage levels is not, but the class sizes, the types of classes, the condition of the schools are all very sustainable.  The collective bargaining agreement with employees making all over $60K per year is not. 
          2. 5.       Why is this information being placed at this time in 2013, specifically in November.
            1. a.      As stated Lakota has a contract renewal with the LEA in June of 2014 so to get the money lined up for the pay increases that have been promised, they must have the money lined up by the start of the next fiscal year.  Lakota gambled when they cut their deal with me hoping that two years would be enough time for my influence to fade from the public scene and the network that No Lakota Levy had established would erode away.  They figured that if they could isolate the press from my “radicalism” then they’d have a shot.  They also wanted to wait for an off year election.  It would have been murder for them to try this attempt during the last presidential election because the Lakota school district is mostly raw conservative.  The only supporters of Lakota who are not neurotic parents are fellow government employees who live off looted tax money.  This year there aren’t many big elections, no governor races, no congressional or senate races, only smaller issues—so the schools are attacking now hoping they can get enough turnout without having too much turnout.  Too much hurts them, and too little turn-out hurts them, they need it to be just the right amount where it’s all the neurotic levy supporters while the No Votes stay home.  This is why Fairfield is trying for another levy so soon, Lebanon, and so on with many dozens of others.  It’s all about timing and getting the odds stacked in their favor.  They don’t give a damn about the actual will of the community, only to skip by the process with numbers to their favor.   They could have tried for spring or summer elections, but they didn’t at Lakota because they knew the numbers were not there.  They hoped by using the community conversations method that they’d build up a voter base, take away the opposition, and put time and distance from their antics of the past.  But they must do it before 2014.  They also know that they will have to go to voters again in 2017, so they need time for people to forget about this tax increase so they can have about 3 years before asking again.  Those costs are driven exclusively by their collective bargaining agreement with the LEA.


We have seen over $20 million in cuts to programs and people.  Over 600 students can no longer participate in activities because they are cost prohibitive.

  1. Why was $20 million cut?
    1. As painful as Lakota tries to make it sound, the $20 million in cuts are perfectly in line with what they should be due to declining enrollment.  Lakota as a district is entering a phase of mature development.  The homes are more expensive than average meaning there are fewer buyers able to live in the community who have school age kids—leaving more mature investors to purchase real estate.   Most of those mature investors do not have children in the district, so enrollment is dropping at Lakota considerably.  CLICK HERE TO SEE AN EXPLAINATION.  Not having those $20 million in cuts would have been irresponsible.  That would mean that there would be $20 million worth of non essential personnel on the Lakota payroll.  The fact that those cuts occurred is to the credit of No Lakota Levy for forcing the issue.  If there had not been a defeat in the previous three elections, Lakota would not have made those needed cuts.  They will have to make many more cuts in the future—because of declining enrollment.
    2. Why can over 600 students no longer participate in activities?
      1. 600 students were pushed out of the extra circular activities because of the enormous costs to the students.  No Lakota Levy tried to help with this by releiveing students of some of the pressure, but this caused Lakota to lash out at me very publically as they knew they could not afford to lose the children as an extortion device.  CLICK HERE TO READ A FORBES ARTICLE DONE ABOUT ME, AND NO LAKOTA LEVY.  The fees created by the mismanagement of Lakota’s resources caused 600 students to lose the ability to participate in extra circular activities.   The services were paid for by the community, yet the management at Lakota chose to use children in an exploitive way to pad their collective bargaining agreements.  It’s that simple.
      2. Why are extracurricular activities cost prohibitive?
        1. The fee was set high on activities so to make it hard on the parents.  The intention is for parents to complain to their neighbors and for the information to spread like wildfire from home to home and upon election time, voters are supposed to vote in favor of tax increases to alleviate the pain placed on the original complaining neighbor.  This tactic is taught at Levy University each year at the OSBA Conference in Columbus, Ohio.  How do I know—I have many friends who have been to it and reported exactly what goes on there.  The practice is EXTORTION!
        2. Why were cuts needed?
          1. There weren’t.  They were implemented as an extortive measure.
          2. Why is management so poor that these conditions arise?
            1. Lakota management does not have control of the ship, by law.  The union lobby has made it so that legally school boards can do very little to control their budgets.  Anything the school board tries to do to manage their money ends up disputed and in arbitration.  This is why the only kind of superintendents that are brought into a district is former teachers who have been molded by the system for the benefits of the system.  Where Lakota management goes wrong is that they side with their radical labor force rather than the rest of the community so that they can keep the internal peace.  The union radicals use nice people like Libby Williams to do their dirty work for them as they hide in the shadows and drive up costs behind the exploitation of children.  It’s a bad system that goes so far to be considered outright evil.


Every vote counts to help get our schools and our community back on track.  We are Lakota, and we need you. 

  1. 1.       This is why I call the levy advocates cheerleaders, and why I think the whole idea is so stupid.  The score in the game could be 100 to nothing and the cheerleaders still stand on the sideline doing their little dances and saying things like, “let’s go team.”  I addressed this issue back in April provoking this response in the Pulse Journal from one of those levy cheerleaders who reside in the shadows behind Libby.  CLICK HERE TO READ MUCH MORE, but here is the letter written on the subject. 

Lakota Schools Still Worth ‘Cheering’ For

Lakota FacebookHere we go again:”……levy addict…glorified community baby-sitting service.”

Wasn’t Rich Hoffman already discredited by the media one year ago because of phrases like this and previous comments such as “…crazy PTA moms and their minions of latte drinking despots with diamond rings the size of car tires and assess to match…”


Maybe Mr. Hoffman thinks its clever using metaphors comparing levy supporters to mindless cheerleaders (another attack on women).  Unlike his approach, I prefer to use facts.


Mr. Hoffman claims that Lakota will “see an influx” of tax revenue after new developments are built.  That sounds great, but it’s not reality. Commercial property contributes very little to school funding and has not kept pace with residential growth.  Gov. John Kasich cut $1.8 billion from schools over the last two years and his current budget increases funding for charter schools and proposes additional vouchers on private schools, once again depriving public education of money.

Ohio’s charter schools received $775 million from the state last year.  That amount of money could fund numerous public school districts.


Lakota Treasurer Jenni Logan predicts the district will face a $1.8 million dollar budget deficit by 2014.  This is after $35 million in cuts over the last three years, which has resulted in minimal bus transportation; larger classes; fewer days for art, music and gym; no reading specialists; a dismantled gifted program, etc.


Even with these cuts, Lakota schools are still worth “cheering” for.  We are not part of a losing team, but our children and grandchildren could lose out on future opportunities if there isn’t more financial support.  So, let’s drown out the Rich Hoffmans of our community by making the next levy a successful one.  If that happens, we all win.

  1. As stated above, Lakota hopes to drown out people like me so that nobody sees what’s really going on.  If the text above is clicked on, I dispute everything said point for point.  But basically, the levy cheerleaders have no grip on reality, no understanding of economics, no concept that they are allowing their children to be used as extortion pawns, and no will to question anything.  They just want to stand on the sideline and do their cheering for the sake of feeling important.

I could speak forever on all the reasons why the Lakota levy is a bad idea and why the people behind it are up to no good.  But the best way to beat them is with a levy defeat.  The best way to shut them up, shut them down, and drown them out is by showing up to vote against them.   The only way to manage money in the Lakota district is to keep it out of their hands.  If voters do that, they can strike a blow that will resonate for many years.  It will end careers that deserve to be ended, it will flush out the garbage as they will seek employment elsewhere, and it will set a standard that other schools will have to duplicate.  The way to silence the lies is to force them to eat the truth, and the way to do that is to take away their money.  And that is the real fear behind the cheers, is that if Lakota does not get this levy, their bluffs will have been called, and they will be forced into a labor dispute that will force them to pick sides.   The only way that can happen is if voters show up, and show up in unusually high numbers to decline tax increases and force Lakota to live within its means.
