    Union Strikers Teach by Example

    UNION TEACHERS STRIKES ARE ILLEGAL IN THE STATE OF WA.

    ILLEGAL STRIKING UNION TEACHERS ARE TEACHING OUR SCHOOL KIDS HOW TO GET WHAT THEY WANT BY BREAKING THE LAW

    ————————————————————-

    WHAT DO THEY WANT? WHEN DO THEY WANT IT? “NOW”

    “NOW” is always the day public school was supposed to start.

    Sep 8, 2015 – Seattle teachers are on strike Wednesday, which was supposed to be the first day of school.

    SO ABOUT 5,000 TEACHERS WENT ON OUT ON THEIR ILLEGAL STRIKE.

    Sep 9, 2015 – SOMEBODY ASKED… Should a judge weigh in on Seattle’s teachers strike, decades of trial court … consistently agreed: It’s illegal for teachers to strike in Washington.

    IN SPITE OF THE FACT, THAT UNION SCHOOL STRIKES ARE ILLEGAL IN THE STATE OF WA.

    ASK YOURSELF ….

    WHY NO SEATTLE JUDGE BOTHERED TO RULE THAT STRIKING TEACHERS IN SEATTLE WERE IN CONTEMPT OF COURT. NO JUDGE IN SEATTLE SAID HE WOULD FINE THE UNION $2,000 A DAY IF TEACHERS DIDN’T GO BACK TO WORK?

    AND ASK YOURSELF THESE QUESTIONS

    WHY  IS  THIS UNION STRIKE AGAINST WA STATE LAW?

    WHY IS DISTURBING THE PEACE AGAINST THE LAW?

    DISTURBING THE PEACE OF THE OTHER PARTY OR OF ANY CHILD? THE ILLEGAL  UNION TEACHERS STRIKE DISTURBED THE PEACE OF 53,000 SCHOOL STUDENTS.

    OF THE OTHER PARTY, PARENTS OF 53,000 STUDENTS LEFT SCRAMBLING FOR CHILD CARE, MISSING WORK, AND INCOME, HOW COULD THIS  ILLEGAL SEATTLE TEACHER STRIKE BE DISTURBING THE PEACE.

    WHY IS A PUBLIC NUISANCE AGAINST THE LAW?  one which affects equally the rights of an ENTIRE COMMUNITY or neighborhood.

    HOW COULD ABOUT 5000 UNION PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS PICKETED AT ALL 97 SEATTLE SCHOOLS BE A PUBLIC NUISANCE.  THE SCHOOL DISTRICT CANCELED CLASSES FOR A FIFTH DAY TUESDAY. DISTRICT … PARENTS OF 53,000 STUDENTS MISSED WORK, AND INCOME, AND SCRAMBLE FOR CHILD CARE AMID THE SEATTLE TEACHER ILLEGAL STRIKE.

    AND ASK YOURSELF AGAIN

    WHY  IS THIS UNION STRIKE  AGAINST WA STATE LAW?

    TO PREVENT THE UTTER AND TOTAL CHAOS CAUSED BY THE  5000 STRIKING SCHOOL  TEACHERS, AT ALL 97 SEATTLE SCHOOLS THAT DISRUPTED THE LIVES OF 53,000 STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS.

    ——————————————————————————-

    HOW DO UNION SCHOOL TEACHERS GET WHAT THEY WANT?
    What do we want? More money! When do we want it? Now!
    https://cogitateit.wordpress.com/…/what-do-we-want-more-money-when-…
    Jun 17, 2015 – we all want to see more kids in great schools. I think everyone can sign up to that. IDEALLY THE WAY WE WOULD MAKE THIS HAPPEN IS TO MAKE SURE …

    ———————————
    WITH “PREMEDITATED ILLEGAL UNION STRIKE” Teachers teaching our school kids by example, think out or plan (an action, especially a crime) beforehand.
    It will be seen that an essential ingredient of that offense is “premeditated … THE TEE SHIRTS WERE PRINTED AND THE STRIKE SIGNS WERE READY.

    UNION EDUCATORS JUST WANT AN 18% PAY HIKE OVER THREE YEARS.

    UNION SCHOOL TEACHERS ARE DETERMINED TO STAY OUT OF THE CLASSROOMS UNTIL THEY GET THE PAY RAISE THAT THEY WANT

    SO, ABOUT 5,000 TEACHERS CONTINUED THEIR ILLEGAL STRIKE UNTIL FRIDAY SEPT 18, 2015 .

    ———————————————————-

    DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THIS?

    AFTER ALL, GOOD, GOD FEARING, LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, FAMILIES, PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS HAVE SPENT A LIFETIME TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN TO RESPECT AND OBEY THE LAW.

    Let’s be clear: Teacher strikes are illegal in Washington. They are not allowed under state law.

    GOOD LORD, MR. FORD….
    PROFOUNDLY BAD UNION PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS DID STRIKE WITH ILLEGAL PREMEDITATION AND AND WERE  ALLOWED TO TEACH OUR CHILDREN, BY THEIR STRIKING EXAMPLE.

    BECAUSE THEY GOT WHAT THEY WANTED BY BREAKING THE LAW

    —————————————————–
    INDEED, I DO OBJECT TO MY FAMILY, GRANDCHILDREN,  AND GREAT GRAND CHILDREN BEING EDUCATED/UNIONIZED  BY THE ILLEGAL ACTIONS OF UNIONS AND UNION SCHOOL TEACHERS.
    1. HOW UNIONS PLAN TO GET WHAT THEY WANT
    2. HOW UNIONS PLAN TO GET WHAT THEY WANT WHEN THEY WANT IT
    3. HOW UNIONS PLAN TO BREAK THE LAW
    4. HOW UNION PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS “DO” BREAK THE LAW
    5. HOW UNION PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS “DO” WHAT THEY WANT
    6. AND, HOW UNION PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS “DO” GET AWAY WITH IT

    AND, THE JUDGE ALLOWED THE UNION TO GET EXACTLY WHAT IT WANTED BY BREAKING WA STATE LAW.

    ——————————————————————————-

    WHAT DO WE WANT? WHEN DO WE WANT IT? NOW

    EXACTLY WHAT ANY  GOOD, GOD FEARING, LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, FAMILIES, PARENTS AND GRANDPARENTS WOULD WANT AFTER  SPENDING A LIFETIME TEACHING THEIR CHILDREN TO RESPECT AND OBEY THE LAW.

    JUDGES  THAT TAKE IMMEDIATE ACTION AGAINST PUBLIC SCHOOL UNIONS AND  TEACHERS THAT  STRIKE IN THE VIOLATION OF LAW.

    TO PREVENT THE UTTER AND TOTAL CHAOS CAUSED BY THE  5000 ILLEGALLY STRIKING UNION SCHOOL  TEACHERS, AT ALL 97 SEATTLE SCHOOLS THAT DISRUPTED THE LIVES OF 53,000 STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS.

    WA STATE PARK APPROPRIATIONS

    Governor Inslee WANTS the blue ribbon task force on parks and outdoor recreation,

    that he appointed, to  FOCUS ON RECREATION AND TOURISM.

    I did attend the Aug. 19, 2014  committee meeting in Sequim, and I sat SILENTLY through the meeting from 1 P.M. TO 3 P.M. … TO 8 P.M.

    I was allowed, EXACTLY TWO MINUTES, to make my public comment at 7:50 P.M.

    I listened to what your 28 Appointed Committee member’s “WANT” for about seven hours.

    Rep. Tharinger  mentioned, that what you “WANT” to provide funding for recreation/tourism, and what you may actually get, could be significantly different.

    I do investigative, documented reporting on my website behindmyback.org.

    WA STATE PARK APPROPRIATIONS

    PUBLIC ACCESS AND APPROPRIATIONS FOR WA STATE PARKS

    Perhaps YOUR last public hearing opportunity on the topic of our request legislation and the Discover Pass is set for Monday, April 22, 2013 at 9 am before the House $$$$$ Appropriations Committee.

    ——————————————————————
    Washington Wildlife Recreation Program (WWRP)
    The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program provides funding for a broad range of land protection and outdoor recreation, including park acquisition and development, habitat conservation, farmland preservation, and construction of outdoor recreation facilities.
    —————————————————————-

    MY COMMENT
    I find the title and description of the , WWRP program DISTURBING? It this WA park broad range of land protection, acquisition, development habitat, conservation program designed to provide outdoor recreation facilities for WILDLIFE?
    ————————————————————–

    Capital Budget (Doesn’t include a possible $5 – $10 million infusion for removal of fish passage blocking culverts)

    Governor Inlsee – $46.6 million (plus $8.3 million in WWRP Grants)
    House – $56.9 million (plus $7.9 million in WWRP Grants)
    Senate – $50.7 million (plus $3.3 million in WWRP Grants)
    Commission October Request – $67.8 million (plus $11.5 million in WWRP Grants)
    ——————————————————————
    Per Rep. VanDeWege, $20 MILLION SPENT for removal of fish passage blocking culverts this year.
    —————————————————————

    MY COMMENT
    Last summer families in Port Angeles were putting up tents and camping in their back yards.

    The abysmal failure of the WA State Discover Pass? The cost, Families simply can’t afford to use WA State Parks.

    ———————————————————–
    *From: an online email comment that was forwarded to me (name removed)

    *Also if there is going to be a gas tax increase, NOVA needs its appropriate share.

    MY COMMENT
    Do you really think raising the gas tax and grabbing a piece of the pie, is the solution to increasing park attendance, for the jobless, working poor, economically starved people in Clallam County?

    MY COMMENT is the solution to providing free Public Viewing of WA State Parks just as a NOVA image on Television?

    Bills regarding State Parks funding are coming fast and either moving or dying. The session is winding down. I am okay with SB5897 and SHB1935 (scheduled for public hearing on Monday).

    It is hard to state support for SHB1935 since it may be an entirely different bill when it is heard on Monday.

    This is the problem with these bills. They are amended on the spot in Committee with no prior review by the public so you may say you like a bill on minute but it is an entirely different bill the next.

    We still want $27million for State Parks from the General Fund, at least $60 million for WWRP (and no games with cherry picking projects), and no sweeps of NOVA. Also if there is going to be a gas tax increase, NOVA needs its appropriate share.

    Well one bill we supported passed both houses. Increasing the size of the Horse Park Authority. At least it is something!!

    Subject: Legislative Report – April 19, 2013

    Dear Colleagues,

    I want to provide you a brief update on legislative doings since last week’s report.

    A. The Discover Pass and Agency Request Legislation:

    There is no change on the status of SB5897, which combines four major state parks related elements:

    1.The core of our agency request legislation (SB5653) which works to expand partnerships, expand the role of the Park Foundation, and link us more soundly to cultural celebrations, ethnic heritage and the arts.
    2.Discover Pass reforms (SB5289) that formalize existing practice of not requiring/enforcing the Pass when accessing through DNR and WDFW lands. There is no such change on State Parks lands. The bill also allows for wholesaling of the pass, if all three agencies agree.
    3.Establishing a set of performance measurements for state parks, and a reporting function to the legislature.
    4. Provides $5 million per year funding from the litter tax for 4 years to state parks.

    The bill passed the Senate Ways and Means Committee and now sits in the Rules Committee.

    Perhaps the last public hearing opportunity on the topic of our request legislation and the Discover Pass is set for Monday, April 22 at 9 am before the House Appropriations Committee. SHB1935 is set as the first bill up for a public hearing in the House Hearing Room A. At this time we do not know or any amendatory language for that bill. But here is the most reasonable expectation:

    1 It will be similar to SB5897, however it is unlikely to include the litter tax provision.
    2.It may include some provision related to legislative oversight of the potential State Parks-Public Development Authority Co-Management at Fort Worden.
    B.Boating Safety

    SSB 5437 passed the Senate and the House, but in slightly different forms. It is now on the concurrence calendar in the Senate. The bill provides some law enforcement teeth when it comes to operating a boat while under the influence of intoxicating alcohol.

    C. Snowmobile Funding HB2002 has passed the House and now sits in Senate Ways and Means. It would increase fees for snowmobile registration and allow our Commission to set other fees; enabling funding and services to improve to historic levels.

    D. Horse Park Authority A bill to expand the Authority from 7 to 11 members passed both chambers and is scheduled to be signed by the Governor on Monday. Our Commission appoints members to the Authority Board, but has little other relationship to the organization.

    E. Budgets There are no differences to report from last week. The latest versions of the budget proposals are:

    Operating Budget (General Fund or Other Tax Supported Funding)
    Governor Inlsee – $23.7 million
    House – $23.7 million
    Senate – $16.4 million
    Commission October Request – $27.2 million

    Capital Budget (Doesn’t include a possible $5 – $10 million infusion for removal of fish passage blocking culverts)
    Governor Inlsee – $46.6 million (plus $8.3 million in WWRP Grants)
    House – $56.9 million (plus $7.9 million in WWRP Grants)
    Senate – $50.7 million (plus $3.3 million in WWRP Grants)
    Commission October Request – $67.8 million (plus $11.5 million in WWRP Grants)

    I hope you find this report helpful. Please let me know if you have questions or comments.

    Take care,

    If you bothered to read this far, I have a few closing comments.

    I listened to you, you gave me TWO MINUTES.

    Round and round and round the table, I listened to you , most members? FOCUSED on what they “WANT “. And, what you wanted was MORE TAXPAYER MONEY! for what YOU “WANT”.

    It took a comment from a WA Parks, Whidbey Islander before the word “AFFORDABLE”  RECREATION was mentioned.

    A question to the WA Parks Fort Wardener, how much does it cost? total?

    The answer? We don’t keep track of it?

    FOLLOW THE MONEY?  We don’t keep track of it?

    Rep. Tharanger’s response… basically was, some from here, some from a grant there, more here, more from matching funds there.

    Rep. Tharanger’s response and I quote “Part of the Game”.

    Really? Following Taxpayer money? keeping track of the total amounts? grants? matching funds?

    THE TAXPAYER’S $$$$ MONEY’S IS ALL GONE FOR WA STATE PARKS? RECREATION? TOURISM? AND THE MILLIONS OF $$$ FOR THE BACKLOG OF MAINTAINACE? AND REPAIRS?

    “Part of the Game?” As a vested WA State taxpayer, perhaps someone in Olympia, could forward a copy of the WA State legislated rules for this WA Parks taxpayer money Game?

    WOW!  HOW MANY NUTS CAN YOU GET UNDER ONE RESTORATION SHELL?

    Washington state lobbyists should fund transparency efforts

    Posted by Thanh Tan
    In 2012, the top 50 lobbyists in Washington earned between $96,119 and $471,670. I think it’s safe to say most of them can afford a $200 fee to help the Public Disclosure Commission upgrade an electronic filing system one lobbyist described this week as “woefully inadequate for what it was intended to do.”

    The more lobbyists migrate to an online database, the easier it will be for the rest of us to view their spending reports. Wouldn’t you want to know how much someone spent to wine and dine your legislator in exchange for his or her vote on any given issue?

    If you agree, then encourage lawmakers to support HB 1005. On Tuesday, the House Appropriations Committee held a public hearing. They have yet to take a vote. As the editorial board stated in this December editorial, lawmakers ought to give the bill a serious look because there are more than 900 registered lobbyists in Washington state.

    In 2012, total lobbying expenses in Washington reached $51.8 million. But to see how they used that money to entertain lawmakers and which interests they protected, citizens have to find and read through scanned reports that are often filled out in handwriting.

    In contrast, candidates’ campaign-finance reports on the commission’s website are both easy to query and revealing.
    Lobbyist Bob Cooper testified the bill would be “inviting a lawsuit against the state because I don’t believe the fee is constitutional.”
    Fellow lobbyist Steve Gano took the opposite position and said the only way to instill public confidence in his interactions with lawmakers is to ensure they have access to data.
    He described the PDC’s current system as “woefully inadequate” because it frequently shuts down and requires rebooting while lobbyists are scanning and entering information.
    “Efforts that have gone into it get lost,” Gano said. ” It suits no one well and it”s truly a user fee. Any of us who are hired to represent clients before you, in essence, are doing exactly the same thing. Our clients are being charged a fee to petition the government on their behalf.”
    Gano is right.
    The first part of HB 1005 is a no-brainer, but the second measure in the bill should be eliminated or amended because it would close the Executive Ethics Board and transfer that agency’s enforcement and ethics law training responsibilities to the PDC. Agency directors warned the panel that doing so would not actually save taxpayers any money.

    THE UNVEILED POWER OF NGOS: (full text on line)
    HOW NGOS INFLUENCE STATES’ FOREIGN POLICY BEHAVIORS
    ABSTRACT
    This research project is designed to understand the relationship between states and Nongovernmental Organizations (NGOs), especially how they influence one another. In this study, I argue that the theoretical relationship between states’ foreign policy
    behaviors and the behavior of NGO is dynamic and conditional, with the influence of NGOs on states’ behaviors depending on the host states’ regime type and the age of the influencing NGOs. I also argue that NGOs influence states’ foreign policy behaviors toward other states both directly and indirectly, functioning as information providers,
    LOBBYING GROUPS, agenda setters, and norm generators.

    Lobbying involves the advocacy of an interest that is affected, actually or potentially, by the decisions of government leaders. Individuals and interest groups alike can lobby governments, and governments can even lobby each other. Continue reading
