Ghost Teachers Unnecessary Tax Burden

Ghost Teachers Unnecessary Tax Burden

By Leo Knepper

The Commonwealth Foundation undertook the monumental task of acquiring and analyzing teachers’ union contracts from 499 school districts. Their main findings were shocking, but not surprising. Two of items that caught our attention were the prevalence of release time provisions and the “generosity” of healthcare benefits.

Ghost Teachers Unnecessary Tax BurdenRelease time or “ghost teacher” provisions force taxpayers to foot the bill for union activities. Roughly 20 percent of contracts across the state allow for a full release. These teachers don’t set foot in the classroom at all. Instead, they are on the district payroll and can collect a variety of benefits while they work for the union. One of the most expensive benefits that ghost teachers had received, until recently, was a taxpayer funded pension.

On the issue of health insurance benefits, in 99 districts taxpayers foot the entire bill. The workers covered under the teachers’ union contracts don’t pay anything for their premiums. In instances where teachers are required to pay toward their premium costs, they pay far less than the Pennsylvania average of $3,598 per person.

A full summary of the Commonwealth Foundation’s findings can be found on their website; the district-by-district contract details can be found here.

Mr. Knepper is executive director of Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania.

Hillary Birthed Birther Movement

Hillary Birthed Birther MovementHillary Clinton gave an unpresidential rant in Reno, yesterday, Aug. 25, in which she accused her adversaries of being Ku Klux Klan members and subscribers to conspiracy theories.

We’d like to point out that Robert Bryd, whom  she praised as a her friend and mentor,  was a Ku Klux Klan recruiter and is the only U.S. senator to have voted against the nominations of both Black Suprme Court justices.

We’d further like to note that Mrs. Clinton has the endorsement of at least one Klan leader who says he has sent her $20,000. This is believable considering Mrs. Clinton’s abortion position, which strongly promotes abortion for America’s  minority population.

With regard to conspiracy theories, we’d just like to point out the Hillary birthed the birther movement and republish this article from 2009.

Hillary Birthed Birther Movement
She and her minions birthed the birther movement. Really.

A movement claiming Barack Obama is ineligible to be president on the basis that he was not born in the United States is starting to percolate into the old media and its roots can be traced to a prominent suburban Philadelphia Democrat.

Birthers — a dismissive allusion to  ‘truthers’ who are those who believe that the Bush administration was behind the 9/11 terrorist attacks — cite the unwillingness of President Obama to release the “vault” birth certificate held in Hawaii that would indicate whether his claim as a natural-born citizen was attested to by medical personnel. They also allege that the President is unwilling to release records showing that he applied to Occidental College as a foreign student. They also cite claims by Obama’s Kenyan relatives that he was born in Kenya.

Birthers claim that the President has spent $1 million fighting the release of records that would clear all such questions.

The prime birther was Philip J. Berg of Montgomery County who filed suit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia, Aug. 21, 2008 claiming that Obama was ineligible to be president. Berg is a Democrat who once chaired the Montgomery County Democratic Party and served as a state Deputy Attorney General for eight years.

The lawsuit was dismissed in October by U.S. District Judge R. Barclay Surrick —  a former Delaware County Common Pleas Court judge and the estranged brother of judicial reformer Bob Surrick.

Berg took the appeal straight to the Supreme Court which rejected it in December.

Berg has his own blog http://www.obamacrimes.com

It should be noted that Berg is an outspoken “truther” and was a Hillary Clinton supporter.

God Miracles Millennials

God Miracles Millennials — Pew Research Center, last year, found that “religious nones”, which they describe as a shorthand for atheists and agnostics, make up about 23 percent of American adults, which is seven percent higher than in 2007.

God Miracles MillennialsMore than a third of Millennials identify themselves as non-religous.

Among the major reasons cited for disbelief are “learning about evolution when I went away to college”, “lack of any sort of scientific or specific evidence for a creator”, and “I’m a scientist now, and I don’t believe in miracles.”

This is ironic. Francis Bacon, generally considered to be the father of the scientific method, sneered at atheism.

“God never wrought miracle to convince atheism, because his ordinary works convince it,” he wrote in 1612 in his essay Of Atheism. “It is true, that a little philosophy inclineth man’s mind to atheism; but depth in philosophy bringeth men’s minds about to religion. For while the mind of man looketh upon second causes scattered, it may sometimes rest in them, and go no further; but when it beholdeth the chain of them, confederate and linked together, it must needs fly to Providence and Deity.”

In his essay, he called atheists hypocrites which they are when they deny their belief to be a faith. Ask one how everything came about and what the purpose of existence is, and then ask him to prove it via the scientific method.

He will inevitably change the subject.

And not to get into a dispute about the flaws and virtues of the Theory of Evolution but those who hold it as a certainty upon which to base one’s value system are not practicing science.

All the scientific method can do is explain consistencies in nature. It cannot reveal the great truths and to believe that it can is, again, by definition anti-science.

As to the reason for the recent increase in atheism, Bacon hits it on the nose in his 400-year-old work. He cites scandals by priests; the scoffing holy things “which doth by little and little deface the reverence of religion”; and peace and prosperity.

The last point is a little counter-intuitive but when one has a soft life and death seems far away and fear is not a common experience, then the old rules don’t seem to make much sense.

Until one realizes that death is not as far away as one thought and one has to account for the choices one has made.
