LAUSD'S PROPOSED PARCEL TAX SCAM

LAUSD Board.jpg
Facing a $468 million bugetary shortfall by 2021-22, LAUSD officials are now seeking a $610 property parcel tax to raise approximately $500 million annually. But given the two-thirds majority vote that would be required in November voting this year or in November 2020 to pass such a parcel tax, it is doubtful whether such a parcel tax would pass voter muster. Having once been a history teacher for LAUSD, before they fired me for being a whistle blower who reported they were fixing grades and attendance, let me see if I can give you a little short LAUSD history lesson about how LAUSD's endemic financial corruption should hopefully motivate you to get out to the polls and vote AGAINST any such parcel tax, because of LAUSD's clear record showing this endemically corrupt entity more concerned with the well being of its vendors and entrenched overpaid bureaucracy than it is with the education of the predominantly minority students that have the misfortune of being continually socially promoted through LAUSD's longstanding corruption without receiving even basic academic skills in this yet segregated public school system that literally makes no attempt to educate them.

LAUSD's LATEST OVERPAYMENT SCAM- WITH UTLA's HELP

LAUSD Board.jpg
Given the hundreds- if not thousands- of teachers that have been sued by LAUSD for allegations of overpayment due to LAUSD's changing teachers' salary payments- without proper government approval- from an annual tenthly to a twelfthly payment under the supposed justification that teachers are not capable of budgeting themselves over what had been an unpaid summer, when they were not working, one must wonder if LAUSD's purpose all along has not been to go after hundreds of teachers for alleged overpayment after the District fired them on completely fabricated charges.

A BETTER WAY TO SPEND $25 BILLION THAN ON A WALL

So how does one deal with a problem like the present neverending stream of undocumented aliens and their children flocking to and illegally crossing our borders? What doesn't seem to be understood or addressed by our leadership at both the state and federal levels is that this and other problems like it will not be dealt with today until our leadership presents today's problems in their true historic and economic contexts, where all relevant facts are considered. Hopefully, this will be a process which no longer ignores past actions and decisions made by the United States, that remain directly responsible for the present situation we now find ourselves in.

LAUSD SAYS "MORE GRADUATING"... BUT SHOULD THEY?

What is most disconcerting about the systematic and purposeful dismantling of public education in this country by LAUSD- and other entrenched mega school districts like it around the country- is that they literally make no attempt to cover up their reprehensible and often criminal behavior in fixing assessments and grades to justify graduating students that objectively have virtually none of the skills supposedly subsumed under a high school diploma.

PLASTIC-IN-THE-ENVIRONMENT SOLUTION(S)?

Might there be a glimmer of hope for the environment and our species longterm survival on this planet, now that MacDonalds has finally acknowledged a plastic-in-the-environment crisis of epic proportions? While MacDonalds starting to implement a program to eliminate the use of single-use-plastic-straws in the U.K. and Ireland, might not seem like much- given the magnitude of the underlying problem- it's at the very least a beginning, which makes me wonder why we all can't- individuals and businesses- do things similar on this side of the Atllantic and around the world?

IS AUSTIN BEUTNER'S LACK OF EDUCATION BACKGROUND HIS GREATEST ASSET AT LAUSD?

Austin Beutner.jpg
In the selection of Austin Beutner as the new Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) permanent superintendent last Tuesday, it seems that those against his choice found his biggest deficit to be the fact that he didn't have an education background. But on the contrary, could this not actually be his greatest potential asset in heading up LAUSD and finally turning around its entrenched and incestuously corrupt LAUSD bureaucracy? Up until now this dysfunctional bureaucracy has only allowed those from within the public education establishment to "succeed" at LAUSD by their vowing to find no fault with anything they were asked to do by those above them in the LAUSD feeding chain of dysfunction and corruption.

NONE OF THE ABOVE

Freedom of the press.jpg
One of the fundamental constitutional rights that in at least theory clearly distinguishes us from a totalitarian society is having a free press. It exists and is rightfully highly protected under the Constitution in fulfillment of the public's right to know in this yet putative democracy. Thus, the press has been able to publish virtually anything that is not deemed pornographic under the Miller Test or which does not create a clear and present danger of grievous bodily harm by doing something like "yelling fire in a theater."

ONLY PROACTIVE LEGAL OFFENSIVE WILL FINALLY STOP LAUSD's CLEARLY ILLEGAL BEHAVIOR

Ekchian.jpg
For years now, literally thousands of teachers and other certificated and classified staff that the Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) and other public school districts like it around the state and around the country have unjustly and illegally been targeted and terminated from their careers without being given their fundamental constitutionally guaranteed rights to basic due process of law from an independent entity, where the conclusion of their guilt was not an already foregone conclusion.

Terrorism?

Syria starving child.jpg
Could somebody explain to me why acts like the unprovoked and senseless attack by Salman Abidi in 2017 on an audience of predominantly innocent children watching an Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England is denominated terrorism, while the same kind of government sanctioned and group organized systematic, continuing, unprovoked, and senseless attacks on predominantly innocent children in Syria, Yemen, Iraq, and elsewhere is not denominated terrorism, but rather "collateral damage"?

LAUSD: AN 800lbs GORILLA THAT NOBODY SEEMS TO SEE?

LAUSD Board.jpg
For anybody that bothers to look- since school districts like LAUSD literally make no attempt to hide it- there is and has been a clearly illegal seige upon, and removal of, literally thousands of more expensive high seniority teachers from coast to coast in this country on clearly fabricated charges. This for the sole real reason of their being more expensive for school districts, which are themselves in dire financial straits due to their own avoidable malfeasance.
