Don’t Look Now: My Support Is Growing

As I have said, I am running for president for my chapter’s presidency. I produced a flyer that introduces myself, and explains my views on topics that are directly related to the issues I and my fellow members are faced with. Well, looks like there are a lot more conservatives, and folks who want to deal with the issues in a professional, non-combative intelligent manner. I was once told by a fellow, liberal C.S.E.A. member that “your chapter is what you make it.” If I win this darn thing, I will have to tell him he is right. I am wondering how many other folks through out the C.S.E.A are of like mind? Could it be possible to actually shift the pro democrat, left-wing public union to the right? I say Ya betcha ya! The loss of jobs and the huge state debt can be directly tied to the public union’s leadership. And as I say, many of the average union workers, are hard-working, decent folks, just trying to provide for their families. Below is the letter that I wrote:


My name is John Heaton and I will be running for president.

Let me start by telling you about myself: I attended Modesto Junior College and earned an A.S. in Business Management. I transferred to C.S.U. Stanislaus and earned a B.S. degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Human Resources. I later returned to Stanislaus State and completed an English Waiver that allowed me to enter the Teacher Credentialing program. I have worked at the high school since 2001. I attended and completed the Job Steward 1 training. I also served as President, and secretary of my Lion’s Club.

When asked why I would be willing to run for president of CSEA Chapter 31 , I responded,” Because I want to give new voices a chance to be heard in a safe and civil environment.” What do I mean by this? I believe there are many of us that want to work in a non combative, positive environment with our local district representatives and fellow union members. Speaking with multiple members over the past few years, many have voiced concern that they are being left out. They have been made to feel that if they are un-able to attend meetings, then they lose the right to have their voices heard.

If elected chapter president, these are a few things that I will promise to do:

# Insure that “all” Chapter 31 members rights are protected. Monitor RUSD actions and provide the members with monthly updates.

# Expect chapter members to always be respectful, and civil towards fellow union members, RUSD employees and school board members. Conduct ourselves the same way at all public forums. This means no personal attacks.

#- Always be honest and open with all members and not give answers to questions because it is “something they want to hear.”

#- Look for solutions to the problems we are facing from all points of views.

# Hold chapter meetings at various locations and times.

I would also like to address a concern that I am “anti-union”. This is untrue. I am against the continued support of politicians and propositions that raise personal taxes and discourage businesses from locating in California. It makes no sense to support politicians who claim to be for the union’s members, but raise the cost of living through increased taxes. And how much of our union dues have been spent over the years getting these people elected? But this is my opinion, and I do not care how a person votes, but only that their choice is an informed one.

I am very supportive of all our chapter’s members working together to ensure that none of our rights as workers, and individuals, are violated by our district office. I believe any member should feel confident they will be supported if, and when, there is a work related issue. As I have stated before, all members need to be civil, and respectful of each other. In these lean times, we need as much input from everyone.

If you are a part of my anti-fan club, and try to screw with me or my material, I will kick your ass only in court, if you are lucky and I am in a good mood:)

Just Cruisin 2

We will forewarn all Obama supporters,
Hollywood stars, media pundits, and
liberals that this post does contain
the truth. If you are one of the above,
or have any serious health issues, you
shouldn’t read this post.

It should be no secret that we don’t
like Obama and feel he is taking our
country in the wrong direction. We
will once again state why we feel
this way.

Obama says he saved the auto industry,
but he closed 2,200 dealerships and that
took away over 100,000 jobs . He also
caused the demise of Pontiac in the
process of “saving” G.M.

Obama says his stimulus worked and 5
million people found work. He doesn’t
mention we have a record 47 million
people on welfare, or a record number
of people receiving disability.

We in the middle class are making less,
and will soon be taxed even more if the

Does recognition by the courts mean churches must sanctifygay marriage?

The answer should be an emphatic no. For no law can be made to force or infringe upon the freedom of the free practice of any religion. No, law can force a church to go against its beliefs. Any attempt to force churches to conform to a court ruling is in direct violation of the first amendment so in reality the courts have over stepped their bounds already.

The courts of the liberals are defying the Constitution of the United States and the very freedoms guaranteed by the bill of rights. They the courts are in place for one thing only to enforce laws not make law.

Having said all that we see that in the end they will they have (the courts will) sided with the gay rights groups, they will say they have said it must…

[TWG Note: While I can appreciate this report, it fails to mention one very important fact.  Fort Hood muslim terrorist and mass murderer, Nidal Hasan, was a member of obama’s very own transition team in ’08-’09. See PDF below link. Page 32 shows Hasan as member.  Clearly, the regime is trying to hide this very important fact.] 

Fort Hood Massacre report released by Judge Webster

The U.S. Army officer who emerged as the deadly Fort Hood shooter in 2009 — killing 12 soldiers and one civilian — had displayed several “red flags” indicating that he had been proselytized by radical Islamists and posed a threat to his fellow officers and to enlisted men and women wherever he was posted, according to a government report released Thursday…(Con’t)

Spending What They Don’t Have But Want From You

I just read this article in the Manteca,”Manstinka” Bulletin.

“The election a week from today has a $10 million immediate consequence for Manteca Unified School District.

Since Proposition 30 is a crucial piece of Gov. Jerry Brown’s “balanced” budget adopted for the current fiscal year that started July 1, if it fails to pass $6 billion in automatic cuts to education statewide would take place.

That means Manteca Unified would lose $10 million of the $30 million the state has promised the district for this fiscal year ending June 30, 2013.”

This shows what is wrong with the mind set of those who believe raising taxes solves bad buasiness practices in the public sector. Public unions have been brainwashing its members for years with this garbage.
Until citizens start holding politicians and public entities acountable, and not let them spend money they do not have, we will continue down the path to financial ruin.

This is still scary stuff.

Rebuttal To CSEA’s President Alan D. Clark

Every month C.S.E.A. members receive a magazine entitled “FOCUS”. The reality is, it should be called “Out Of Focus”.

Let me start with the first few lines of his message. “In two weeks, the future of education and our rights to participate in political action will be decided.” Really, the “future of education.?” If this was the case, the C.S.E.A. would stop endorsing candidates that drive up the cost of doing business in California, and thus driving them out-of-state. And how are our “rights” going to be denied? We, as a union, won’t be forced to have our money spent on people and propositions that we do not agree with, and do our union more harm than good.

It gets better: “We have been working for months to educate our members and the public about what is at stake on Nov.6.” Translation, we have been blowing millions of dollars trying to convince people that raising taxes will help get us out of this financial mess. Sorry, taking more from the working population of California is a pay cut. And the C.S.E.A.’s top brass has been misleading its members for years. Once again, look at where we are and who has been in power in Sacramento for over thirty years?

Mr. Clark states; ” Proposition 30…stops $6 billion in cuts to education this year and stabilizes education funding for the next six years while our economy recovers.” Really? It raises our taxes this year, and for the next six years. Yup,the same plan that has brought us to the financial mess we are now in. How about asking Sacramento to cut spending, cut taxes, and bring companies to California? That’s right, the C.S.E.A does not support candidates and props that do these things.

O.K., now for more ridiculous claims by Mr. Clark; Prop 32…..,is a blatant attempt to silence our voices,strip us of our free speech rights, and if passed, will only be the beginning of attacks on collective bargaining, pensions and our rights as working men and women.” This is just too easy to disprove. How are our voices being “silenced”? They are not, each C.S.E.A member has the right to vote for, or against any person or prop. We have the right to give money to support any person or prop. We should not have our dues going to people and props that we disagree with Mr. Clark. Talk about silencing voices? The C.S.E.A.’s leadership “silences” the conservative voices quite well. As for collective bargaining? Read the words of F.D.R.:

“All Government employees should realize that the process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service. It has its distinct and insurmountable limitations when applied to public personnel management. The very nature and purposes of government make it impossible for administrative officials to represent fully or to bind the employer in mutual discussions with government employee organizations. The employer is the whole people, who speak by means of laws enacted by their representatives in Congress. Accordingly, administrative officials and employees alike are governed and guided, and in many instances restricted, by laws which establish policies, procedures, or rules in personnel matters. Particularly, I want to emphasize my conviction that militant tactics have no place in the functions of any organization of government employees. Upon employees in the Federal service rests the obligation to serve the whole people, whose interests and welfare require orderliness and continuity in the conduct of government activities. This obligation is paramount. Since their own services have to do with the functioning of the Government, a strike of public employees manifests nothing less than an intent on their part to prevent or obstruct the operations of Government until their demands are satisfied. Such action, looking toward the paralysis of Government by those who have sworn to support it, is unthinkable and intolerable.”
As for pensions and benefits? Folks who work in the private sector wish they had our deal! These pensions are guaranteed by the state, and this is one more reason public sector unions should not be able to collectively bargain for pensions and benefits. Don’t misunderstand me, people who are currently receiving these benefits, and pensions, should be left alone. Going forward, new public union employees need to use their money, not the states, to provide for their golden years. They can band together and do this without state money.
Finally, because I am tired of taking apart Mr. Clark’s and the C.S.E.A’s propaganda, I will end on this quote; ” This election is not about right or left, but Right and Wrong.” I just have to agree with this. The “Right” is right, and the “Left” is wrong.

I am finding growing support in my bid for my chapter’s presidency. Some of the people are seeing the hypocrisy and the lack of respect for rules and civility, and are coming to my support. I may, or may not win, but I have some folks questioning our union’s leadership. This is a start!

Nice Deb

Gateway Punditreports on the latest shoe to drop in the egregious intelligence  breakdown that led to the death of the four Americans at our Consulate  in Libya. Not only did the Obama administration deny the Ambassador the additional security he requested,they  withdrew a 16 member special forces team from Benghazi one month before the deadly attacks on 9-11.

Lt. Col. Andy Wood was the leader of the 16 member special forces team whose job it was to protect US personnel in Libya. His team’s mission ended in August a month before the deadly Al-Qaeda attack on 9-11. A six member mobile security team was also withdrawn around the same time. This was despite the fact that there were over a dozen attacks in the country this year. Lt. Col. Wood was subpoenaed to appear at a House committee hearing this coming week. Wood told CBS News it was
