Southern California Public School Chaos

Shared on Facebook by a teacher in California who sees firsthand the destruction of America.

“Nine hundred teachers just got laid off from the Los Angeles Unified School District. They are $650,000 over their annual budget. The following comments by an English teacher help to explain one area that looms large over California’s educational crisis. I hope each person receiving this mail will read it carefully, all the way to the end.

It is sad what is happening to our great country, all because our politicians are afraid they will miss out on a vote. What a travesty!

This English teacher has phrased it the best I’ve seen yet and it should make everyone think, be you Democrat, Republican or Independent.

From a California school teacher…

As you listen to the news about the student protests over illegal immigration, there are some things that you should be aware of: I am in charge of the English-as-a-second-language department at a large southern California high school which is designated a Title-1 school, meaning that its students average in the lower socio-economic and income levels.


Here is a list of Title 1 Schools In California:

Title-I-School-List


Most of the schools you are hearing about are Compton, South Gate High, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, etc., where their students are protesting – these are also Title-1 schools.

Title-1 schools are on the free-breakfast and free-lunch program. When I say free breakfast, I’m not talking about a glass of milk and a roll. But a full breakfast and cereal bar with fruits and juices that would make the Marriott proud.

The waste of this food is monumental, with trays and trays of it being dumped in the trash uneaten. (Our tax dollars at work!)

I estimate that well over 50% of these students are obese or at least moderately overweight. About 75% or more have cell phones.

The school also provides day care centers for the unwed teenage pregnant girls (some as young as 13) so they can attend class without the inconvenience of having to arrange for babysitters or having family watch their kids (More of our tax dollars at work!)

I was ordered to spend $700,000 on my department, or risk losing funding for the upcoming year even though there was little need for anything.

My budget was already substantial, but I ended up buying new computers for the Computer Learning Center, half of which, one month later, were carved with graffiti by the appreciative students who obviously feel humbled and grateful to have a free education in America. (More and more of our tax dollars at work!)

I have had to intervene several times for young substitute teachers whose classes consist of many illegal immigrant students here in the country less than 3 months, who raised so much hell with the female teachers, calling them putas (whores) and throwing things, that the teachers were in tears.

Free medical care, free education, free food, free day care, etc., etc., etc. Is it any wonder they feel entitled not only to be in this country, but also to demand rights, privileges and entitlements?

To those who want to point out how much these illegal immigrants contribute to our society, because they happen to like their gardener and/or housekeeper, and they like to pay less for tomatoes, I say:

Spend some time in the real world of illegal immigration and see the true costs. Higher insurance, medical facilities closing, higher medical costs, more crime, lower standards of education in our schools, overcrowding, new diseases, etc., etc., etc. For me, I’ll pay more for tomatoes.

Americans, we need to wake up. The guest worker program will be a disaster because we won’t have the guts to enforce it. Does anyone in their right mind really think they will voluntarily leave and return?

It does, however, have everything to do with culture: A third-world culture that does not value education, that accepts children getting pregnant and dropping out of school by age 15, and that refuses to assimilate, plus an American culture that has become so weak and worried about “political correctness”, that we don’t have the will to do what is needed.

If this makes your blood boil, as it did mine, forward this to everyone you know including your Congressman and Senators.

Cheap labor? Isn’t that what the whole immigration issue is about? Business doesn’t want to pay a decent wage. Consumers don’t want expensive produce. Government will tell you “Americans don’t want the jobs”.

But the bottom line is cheap labor. The phrase “cheap labor” is a myth, a farce, and a lie. There is no such thing as “cheap labor”.

Take, for example, an illegal alien with a wife and five children. He takes a job for $5.00 or $6.00/hour. At that wage, with six dependents, he pays no income tax, yet at the end of the year, if he files an income tax return, he gets an “earned income credit” of up to $3,200 free.

Also…

1- He qualifies for Section-8 housing and subsidized rent;

2- He qualifies for food stamps;

3- He qualifies for free (no deductible, no co-pay) health care;

4- His children get free breakfasts and lunches at school;

5- He requires bilingual teachers and books;

6- He qualifies for relief from high energy bills;

7- If they are, or become aged, blind or disabled, they qualify for SSI;

8- Once qualified for SSI they can qualify for Medicare (All of this at taxpayer’s {our} expense);

9- He doesn’t worry about car insurance, life insurance, or homeowner’s insurance;

10- Taxpayers provide Spanish language signs, bulletins and printed material;

11- He and his family receive the equivalent of $20.00 to $30.00/hour in benefits;

12- Working Americans are lucky to have $5.00 or $6.00/hour left after paying their bills and his;

13- The American taxpayers also pays for increased crime, graffiti and trash clean-up.

14- Free Child Care (i.e., free babysitting from 6 AM – 6 PM

15- Free ‘mommy makeovers’ after having their children ( includes: tummy tuck and breast lift)

Cheap labor? Yeah right! Wake up people!

These are the questions we should be addressing to the Presidential candidates for either party. We must take action or we will all go down the drain because a few don’t care.

And if you think this is bad, just wait until a Democrat becomes President and the redistribution of wealth becomes the norm in this ex-Democracy. The estimated annual cost now, for state, local and federal, is nearly $400 billion dollars a year.

10 year old boy dances at gay bar
Desmond Is 10 Years of Age.

This is a weird and sick story. As a Father and Grandfather when I think about how other children have to live in third world countries, it makes me sad. When I saw this video and looked at the story on various websites, my stomach started churning.

A special Thank You to Richie From Boston who made this video. Please subscribe to his channel on youtube. (The video is 7:20 in length and worth your time to see).

Personally, I don’t care what someone’s sexual orientation is, what I do care about is when they go after our children. This is really sick.

You want to be gay or bi-sexual that is fine but leave our kids alone!

How bad is Atlanta?

Most conservatives are not aware that even though Georgia is a red state in the Deep South, Atlanta is one of the most liberal cities in the country, and the lawmakers are usually too cowardly to stand up to the LGBT movement there.

The LGBT agenda is strong and prominent throughout the city. High-ranking officials in the fire department and the public health department have been terminated because of their biblical, pro-family views.

Most of the Republicans are RINOs,” one of our local activists says. “And the churches have caved in to the LGBT agenda. One hundred pastors in the Atlanta area wrote an agreement to be more inclusive of LGBT!”

It’s even felt in the Capitol. Two years ago, Georgia governor Nathan Deal vetoed a watered-down religious liberty bill which would have allowed pastors and other ministers to avoid prosecution.

“Drag Kid” Desmond Is Amazing delivered a headlining performance at a sleazy Brooklyn gay bar on Dec. 1, where the ten-year-old boy danced on stage in a crop top and full face of makeup as a throng of adult men in the audience showered him in dollar bills.

The event, called Club Whoa! was hosted at Brooklyn gay bar 3 Dollar Bill and was promoted on social media. Desmond also celebrated the performance on his own Instagram page, which has 105,000 followers. Adults who wished to watch a half naked child dance in a bar could buy tickets on an Eventbright page in which the venue described itself as “queer owned & operated we foster a safe space from love. we respect all human persons as long as those human persons are also respectful to the ones around them.”

Your Drug Is Not My Drug

Commentary About How We All Self-Medicate by Mitch Santell

From the age of 19 forward coffee became my preferred beverage. Over the years not only have I been passionate about coffee, but I also love to grind my own beans and brew my coffee by a method known as French Press.

pouring coffee one
Coffee, so good when it is fresh.

The reason I start here with coffee is that I used to have so many people ask me, “Why don’t you drink herbal tea?” Usually, I would just respond by stating that “Coffee was my drug of choice.”

During my teens, I was seriously afraid of drugs, especially pills. What did I have so much fear? The answer was and is that I can’t swallow pills and even if I have to take an antibiotic (which thank God is not too often), I have to chew the pill. In my teenage years’ quaaludes and other tablets were offered to me but I turned them down.

One time I went to a party, and there were a pile hash and all kinds of drugs on the table, and literally two minutes later I exited the party.

Faul vs. the original James Paul McCartney.

The was something very profound that the original Paul McCartney (RIP) talked about before his replacement right before Sgt. Pepper in 1966 regarding drugs. Do you remember what it was? Here it is, I am paraphrasing as best I can. It had something to do with the fact that once you take certain drugs, they change you and you can’t go back to who you were, and you may not like who you become after the drug.

Yes, Coffee is still my drug of choice. You know what your drug of choice is but guess what? It’s not my drug!

Pope Tell’s Youth To “Live Offline.”

Life’s Little Reflections by Mitch Santell

pope francis 2019 (1)

Many have been inspired by the Pope’s message that the youth need to “Live Offline.” His words have inspired millions with the following:

Pope Francis called on hundreds of thousands of young pilgrims in Panama on Saturday to reject the temptation to live their lives online, and get involved in their communities.

Life was not “in the cloud, waiting to be downloaded, a new app to be discovered, or a technique of mental self-improvement,” the 82-year-old pontiff told a massive vigil at the World Youth Day gathering.

“It is not enough to be connected all day long. To feel respected and asked to get involved, is greater than simply being online,” Francis said at the vigil, held at a park outside Panama City.

He urged them “to embrace life as it presented itself,” and look for areas where “with your hands, your heart and your head, you can feel part of a larger community that needs you and that you yourselves need.”

The World Youth Day organizers said 600,000 were massed at for the slickly produced vigil, with music, dance and periods of quiet contemplation.

Pope Francis also acknowledged that the Catholic Church was “wounded by sin” in a message addressed to priests and seminarians reeling from sexual abuse scandals and coverups.

In a mass that he officiated at the centuries-old Cathedral of Santa Maria La Antigua in Panama City, Francis warned of the “weariness of hope that comes from seeing a Church wounded by sin, which has so often failed to hear all those cries.”

It was the Argentine pontiff’s first reference to the sex abuse scandals rocking the Church since he arrived in Panama on Wednesday.

A Hollywood Story ~ Nancy Pelosi & Calif.

Commentary About Hollywood in Washington D.C. by Mitch Santell

It does not matter if you are liberal or conservative, democrat or republican, you know one thing is real, Nancy Pelosi is delusional, and I think may be drunk with power.

Here is a brief clip of what Nancy wants to do. Oh, man, this is going to get nasty.

Happy Sunday dear followers and readers, I wanted to let you know that this could make a great Hollywood movie.

Nancy has stated that she is the most powerful woman in America.

In the meantime, things are getting a bit stressed out here in Southern California.

In Washington D.C. it was a bit weird at the Lincoln Memorial.

Has President Trump suckered Democrats and the Deep State into a trap that will enable a radical downsizing of the federal bureaucracy?  In only five more days of the already “longest government shutdown in history” (25 days and counting, as of today), a heretofore obscure threshold will be reached, enabling permanent layoffs of bureaucrats furloughed 30 days or more.

This seems to be what was referenced in this remarkable essay written by an “unidentified senior Trump official” published in the Daily Caller, which vouches for the authenticity of the author and explains that it is protecting him from adverse career consequences should the name become known.  I strongly recommend reading the whole thing.

Don’t believe me that federal bureaucrats can be laid off?  Well, in bureaucratese, a layoff is called a RIF – a Reduction in Force – and of course, it comes with a slew of civil service protections.  But, if the guidelines are followed, bureaucrats can be laid off – as in no more job.  It is all explained by Michael Roberts here (updated after the beginning of the partial shutdown):

A reduction in force is a thoughtful and systematic elimination of positions.  For all practical purposes, a government RIF is the same thing as a layoff. …

Organizations must stick to predetermined criteria when sorting out what happens to each employee.  They must communicate with employees how and why decisions are made. …

In deciding who stays and who goes, federal agencies must take four factors into account:

1.    Tenure

2.    Veteran status

3.    Total federal civilian and military service

4.    Performance

Agencies cannot use RIF procedures to fire bad employees.

“You Can’t Write Comedy Like That.” ~ Roseanne Barr

Reflections Of Truth by Mitch Santell

The ability to speak the truth in America is becoming more difficult as so many are divided.

Listen to 4 minutes and 53 seconds of real truth from Roseanne Barr and if you have any misunderstanding as to why ABC Television (Tell-Lie-Vision), kicked her off of prime time, you will by the end of the clip. There is too much cognitive dissonance in America for the average person to get what Roseanne is saying in my view.

The fire started spreading Tuesday morning, fanned by a rapidly building furor in the highly volatile social-media universe. Barr had taken to Twitter to describe former President Barack Obama’s adviser Valerie Jarrett as an offspring of the “Muslim Brotherhood & Planet of the Apes.”

Reaction was swift, from Barr’s co-stars and co-workers. Comedian Wanda Sykes, a consulting producer on the “Roseanne” revival, announced she would not be returning for the show’s second season. Sara Gilbert, who plays Barr’s daughter, said in a tweet that Barr’s remarks were “abhorrent and do not reflect the beliefs of our cast and crew or anyone associated with our show.”

“Roseanne’s Twitter statement is abhorrent, repugnant and inconsistent with our values, and we have decided to cancel her show,” the network’s entertainment president, Channing Dungey, said in a statement released by Disney-owned ABC.

L.A. California’s Big Trend: Visiting Bong Shops and Cannabis Growers

Commentary by Mitch Santell

The ability to look back at your history puts you in a unique place called perspective. For anyone who is a baby boomer (my generation) or others afterward, it still is a fantastic shift how common Cannabis is in California. What you are about to read is really happening, I didn’t make this up!

Happy Wednesday to all my readers and followers.

Elon Musk of Tesla Takes A Hit Off A Spliff

By Hugo Martin

The Los Angeles Times

In Napa and Sonoma, tour bus operators ferry wine lovers between tasting rooms and vineyards. In Hollywood and environs, they shepherd the starstruck past the homes of the rich and famous.

Now they’re giving customers a mind-expanding look at one of Los Angeles’ burgeoning industries: pot.

Since recreational use of marijuana became legal a year ago, a pot tourism business has emerged, taking visitors behind the scenes of California’s estimated $7 billion cannabis industry.

“Every other day it seems another tour company is popping up,” said Lauren Jones, who owns Weedology, a cannabis tour company based in Los Angeles. “It’s like a gold rush.”

Each pot tour company has its own points of interest, generally including a grow facility, a bong maker or accessory retailers and a marijuana dispensary, where visitors can get joint-rolling lessons. Expect product discounts, but not freebies. And some tours allow smoking on board, for those so inclined.

Tours are priced between $40 and $200 a person, depending on the length of the trip, the stops and other features.

 

Starting this month, L.A.-based Green Tours is adding an itinerary that includes a pot-smoking session with weed-loving ‘70s movie legend, Tommy Chong. That tour is priced at $149 a person, owner Gene Grozovskiy said.

Grozovskiy’s father thought his son was nuts when he announced plans to quit his full-time job as a patient placement coordinator at a large Los Angeles hospital to start a marijuana tour company.

“At first pops was like, ‘You want to do what kind of tours?”’ Grozovskiy, 35, recalled. “He thought I was just being silly.”

Other tour company owners also come with respectable pedigrees and want to hop on what they see as a profitable future in recreational cannabis.

Jones, who works as a resources specialist at Los Angeles Unified School District, launched Weedology tours in February as a part-time gig that she hopes can eventually grow to a full-time job.

Ed Legarda is a tech-industry consultant who started Green Line Trips in January. It primarily offers tours on the weekends but he also hopes it will expand to daily operation.

Cannabis tourism also has caught on in other places where weed is legal, such as Colorado and Nevada. It’s part of a myriad ancillary businesses that make up the marijuana industry, including compliance consultants, cannabis testing labs, ultraviolet lighting installers, security and transportation services.

The National Cannabis Industry Assn., a trade group based in Colorado, has nearly 2,000 business as members, with about 60 percent to 70 percent of those companies providing services that don’t involve selling marijuana, spokesman Morgan Fox said.

“We have seen an explosion of businesses related to cannabis,” he said.

Nationwide, the sale of cannabis directly or indirectly employed an estimated 170,000 full-time workers in 2017, according to a study by the Arcview Group, an Oakland-based firm for investors in the marijuana industry. That number is expected to grow to more than 467,000 full-time workers in 2022, the firm estimates.

Kevin Spacey Appears In Court Today

In The What Do You Think Will Happen Department by Mitch Santell

Kevin Spacey appeared in court today in regards to a Sexual Assault charge.

The outcome of Kevin Spacey’s trial I believe will play a significant role in how Hollywood deals with the power of celebrities.

From my perspective as a documentary filmmaker, producer of radio and music, I sincerely hope that things go Kevin’s way. Mr. Spacey knows how “Dog Eat Dog ” Hollywood is. There is so much about Kevin Spacey’s situation that reminds me of what happened to Charlie Chaplin during the making of the film, “The Gold Rush.”

Hollywood, Moving Beyond Betrayal

A Brief Commentary by Executive Producer Ricky Ray**

gwyneth-paltrow-et-winona-ryder-2
“Only Your Friends Can Betray You.” ~ Ricky Ray

“Only your friends can betray you. 

Your enemies can’t. 

They can only attack you. 

Attacks can be prepared for. 

Treachery is so dangerous in that it strikes at your absolute weakness while you’re completely unprepared. 

Your friends are your weakness. Choose wisely.”

It keeps your enemies close in political statecraft, and beware friends and especially family who can and will betray You for countless reasons motivated by their envy, fear, insecurities… and gain.
History is fraught with tales of treason and empires taken not by enemies but from within family intrigues.
The Renaissance in Italy was a prime example like Rome and Greece.
The creator of multinational empires, Nebuchadnezzar II, kept his governor kings in his courts close, under watch as well as to use and manipulate to his ends if need be.
What a way to see who the sycophants are, and what they’ll do for a favor, eh?
And family… he kept wisely distant under watch having seen what they would do when Assyrians king Sennacherib was killed by his own sons after his 185,000 strong armies were supernaturally destroyed by one angelic being at night.
History is full of examples of family and friends Treachery from within.
The Caesar line prime example…
A bitter enemy can become a staunch ally. 
Your success can strike family and friends with envy to betray you, for sick schadenfreude satisfying feelings at your demise, to feel better about their shitty selves.
I know this personally from my own blood family who are kept distant for that reason.

**My note MJS: Not only did Gwyneth Paltrow take the “Shakespeare in Love” script from Winona Ryder’s house, she won an Oscar for her performance in the film!
