Caveat Lectores Says: Drill Baby Drill!

WTF? JFTDC. So now it’s not such a good idea to drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Why should we suddenly get environmental religion just because there is an environmental disaster in the Gulf? There is a gas station next door to this office that is selling gasoline for $3.29 per. We need to get the price of fuel down where it belongs. I do not like oysters anyway. We can get shrimp from Pakistan.

The Gulf is already ruined. The Mississippi Delta region will look like an asphalt parking lot in a few weeks. WTF are we so concerned about? President Obama, all of a sudden, is rethinking his support for Gulf drilling, and Governor Charlie Crust has changed his mind as well. The energy whores in the Washington Beltway do not know what to do.

Caveat Lectores knows what to do. Let’s drain the Gulf of Mexico and pump out all the oil while they are trying to figure out how to salvage an entire ecosystem. This is not rocket science. We need the oil godamitall. Drill Baby Drill!

And Oh yes, Have a nice Day?


Caveat Lectores on Sine Die and Other Idiocy

News Flash: The Florida Legislature is about to adjourn and the Lector can hardly wait for them to drop the hankie on yet another disastrous session. Governor Charlie Crust, nearly Democrap but recently resigned RePuP and now InDuPendent, has fled the Capitol in fear that he may have to actually do something since Tallahassee is so near the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

It will take a while to determine just how much damage the Florida Legislature did to the well being of its citizenry, but I am guessing they did a pretty sound job of it. An in-depth analysis will follow. It will take a few days to fully assess the damage. Public employees should be thankful things went no more badly in Tallahassee than they did. That is kinda like telling a rape victim it could have been worse.

Lectores MEPAC was not very successful in getting clients this week. I did not know it was the end of the session and most of the available PAC and lobbying money had already been squandered. We only collected enough for dinner but I promise to waste that fully.

And OH yes, have a Nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on Political Action Committees

The Lector may not be too smart but smart enough to see a good thing when it pops across the screen. I am starting a new PAC. The name will be Caveat ME PAC. The purpose will be to support things that I really support… ME.

Caveat ME PAC will appeal to anyone who wishes to influence government by sending checks to someone who claims the ability to do so. I was a lobbyist in a prior life and teach lobbying skills to others. I know how to lobby and have much experience organizing political campaigns for candidates who do not win.

Caveat ME PAC will claim to support and lobby for anything for which a donor is willing to pay. Caveat ME PAC will specialize in hopeless cases, worthless causes, trivial issues and generally anything that should never become legislation. Failure will be automatic, but it really is the effort and thought that counts. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will champion the ultra conservative right wing causes.
• Caveat ME PAC will be against government. All government is bad. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will be for business. All business is good. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will be for the right to work without the bonds of corrupt labor unions. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will be for Jesus. Conservative and Christian go together. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will be for iron barred borders that keep pesky immigrants out. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will be in favor of the good old days. Right?
• Caveat ME PAC will spend lots of money raising more money. Oh Yeah!
• Caveat ME PAC will make its donors proud by spending every cent donated without any oversight. The way it should be.

Ok, this may not be a new idea. But, if it works for Tea Baggers and RePuPs, it may finance the renovation of the Devil’s Neck Convention Center. Send checks made out to Mr. Cash.

And Oh yes, Have a Nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on Forgiving Jim Greer and the Florida RePuPs

We should leave former Florida RePuPlican Party Chairman Jim Greer and some of the other RePuPs who got caught with their hand in the cookie jar alone. They were not stealing money from their constituents. They were merely doing what is expected of the upper crust. They were living large. Give ‘em a break. OK, maybe it was tax evasion not to report personal expenses paid by the party as income, but isn’t it the American way to cheat the government out of taxes? Lighten up.

Now that the Rs can no longer deny the stupidity and greed of what was going on, they have to pillory somebody. Jim Greer and Ray Sansome are the delegated scapegoats. A few others will get the gaff as well, but they have done nothing they were not expected to do. You do not really expect the party of the wealthy to do anything different do you? Why have money if you cannot waste it? Remember, the wealthy contribute the money, but the middle class votes for the conservative, right wing, family values hypocrites hoping some of the wealth will trickle down to them. BOHICA.

Sure, what is left of the RePuPlican leadership will feign surprise and revulsion, cry crocodile tears and want to move on as if nothing happened once the credit card records reach the public domain. Did it never occur to anyone that the money being spent was from the political war chest? You did not really expect them to pay for their private jets and other basic wealthy class needs out of their own pockets.

Let’s forgive and forget. After all it was RePuPlican donor’s money, certainly not mine they were squandering. Well maybe some of the tax dollars somebody was evading were charged to you and me, but let’s just be Christian about this and forgive them their trespasses as they trespass against us and conspire to take your pensions, outsource public education to corporate industry, destroy the environment but don’t get me started.

BTW, if I find the Democraps were doing the same thing, I will shout even louder.

And Oh yes, have a nice Day?


Don't forget to go to and buy a few books.

Caveat Lectores on Political Reality

It’s raining outside. We could not go to Rock by the Sea on St. George Island, and I am listening to NC style oldies R&R music. Why am I in such a mood to Rant?

The Rant earlier today got me worked up about external union politics. So, here is some more. Surely, my off the wall opinions will irritate someone. They must be off the wall because so many unions approach politics so differently than I suggest.

• Stop being so open and obvious about political involvement. The only people who need to know who you are… are on the inside. The outsiders do not matter, and they will be the source of trouble. Publicity makes you a target. Media hype needs to be about what you do for the public not the politicians.
• Learn how to lobby elected officials. Good lobbyists are effective and not all that well known to the public.
• Keep your name out of the news unless it is something that will help the members. Don’t try to be a rock star. Become invisible except to those who matter. Now is not a good time to be perceived as militant.
• Keep the union out of the news. The public does not care about what happens in a local union unless it is controversial. Now is not a good time to be perceived as anything other than by the book.
• Find valuable ways to help those you support. Money is important but so is real assistance in getting elected. You must spend money, but you do not have enough of it to get as close as you need to be. Sweat hours are the best way to get close to a local candidate. Make them know your name, not just your signature on a check.
• Quit making flashy endorsements. The public usually does not care whom you support and may not approve of the reason why.
• Stop trying to become kingmakers. The politicians will use your good name only so long as it benefits them.
• Start making better decisions about whom to support. Become more pragmatic and not so idealistic that you encourage political failure.
• Stop applying a quid pro quo scrutiny to how those you supported perform.
• Organize and energize the members to become a part of the process. You need the whole band not just a combo.

Maybe there are a couple of more things that need addressing, but this is a start.

And Oh yes, have a nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on Too Much of a Good Thing

Has fire union support become a campaign curse?

The hyperlink transports to a news article I have been expecting to see. It is about how a fire union endorsement can be a curse instead of political assistance. Of course, it is media venom to further attack the notion that a union made up of worker bees should have any real input into how things are done.

Caveat Lectores has already been there and done that back in the 70’s when our IAFF Local became a pariah to political “friendlies” and a focus for contempt and derision for our enemies. Times were bad economically, or so they said, and we had found some political power that became public knowledge. The media decided to put us in our place. We did not help ourselves very much with some costly missteps.

Public employees are truly in the cross hairs of nearly everyone right now. Fire and police unions have been more politically successful than some others which make them even more of a target because there are many people and organizations who are threatened by the notion of political power being placed in the hands of real people organized into a cohesive unit. Even though Caveat Lectores takes some pleasure in deriding the Tea Baggers, I will agree it is their potential political power that concerns me. Their rhetoric is nonsense without numbers and political credibility.

When public sector unions are even marginally effective (powerful), they must understand their role is always limited to the shadows and bit parts in the overall political game. Becoming a public force brings out the naysayers in the media, the right to workers, right wingers and anyone committed to anti worker mentality. The easiest way for the media to damage a union and its leadership is to call them powerful. The leadership likes the warm feeling of accomplishment and basks in the glow. Then they start referring to leaders as “union bosses” and make it sound like doing anything to benefit a lowly public sector employee is corruption. The political “friendlies” who are not really friends, at all, but are merely political “users” will run for cover. This is not a new phenomenon. Wake up!

Union leadership has a choice to make right now. They can lay low and shore up what little real support they have and rebuild; or they can take the offensive and hope to defeat the media and the right wingers. The offended and often nearly hysterical members will want to strike back and start a war with the media, and the leadership usually falls into the trap.

The media controls the message. The media will win. Once things reach the ordained proper equilibrium, the workers can resume thinking they have a bona fide voice until they seem successful. Then we do it all over again. JFTDC that sounds cynical. Is it all smoke and mirrors and guerrilla warfare? …….

Here is the Caveat Lectores message:

Constantly assess and reassess your target goals. Ask and answer the following: What do I want to achieve? Will taking this course of action get me what I want? If the course of action I am following is not likely to achieve a productive result, why am I doing it?

There may be a good reason for starting a war or a battle that cannot be won in literal terms. Sometimes, you will have to react in an unpleasant way just to get somebody’s attention. However, you may be poking a stick in the eye of the proverbial 800 pound gorilla. Is that what you really want to do? They always have more resources than you do. The only way to avoid losing even when you win is not to fight the unnecessary battle. Political action is the best way, if not the only way, to prevail in a positive way even though you will be criticized for doing so.

I guess it is time to spend some of that time on the Art of War.

And Oh yes, have a Nice Day?

Tea Partiers Are Rich, White, Educated, And Enjoy Glenn Beck

Here is something that came in over the news earlier today that may interest the Caveat Lectores readers.

Based on the amount of attention the group is getting these days you’d be forgiven for assuming that Tea Partiers hold the secret to the universe. The NYT and CBS News have just released the results — in a splashy A-1 article in the Times, no less — of a huge, comprehensive poll they’ve jointly conducted. While the results mostly jibe with much of what we’ve recently been hearing about the movement, namely that it’s more mainstream than the media has previously portrayed it (18% of the country identifies with the party), some aspects may surprise.

Most surprising perhaps is that Tea Partiers tend to be better educated and wealthier. Yes. Perhaps not the conclusion you would draw based on much of coverage, but according to the poll “Tea Party supporters are wealthier and more well-educated than the general public, and are no more or less afraid of falling into a lower socioeconomic class.” So there’s that.

Perhaps less surprising is the fact that the party is primarily white — only one percent is black, 89 percent are white — and they are mostly male. Also, they are not fans of the president, though they have “favorable impressions of Sarah Palin, Glenn Beck and George W. Bush, but not Ron Paul or John McCain.” Also not shocking: 63% say they get the “majority of their political and current events news on television from the Fox News Channel (that’s compared to 23 percent of Americans overall).

And here’s the part of the poll that will likely make it to the cablers: 24% of these wealthy, educated, white Tea Partiers say “it is sometimes justified to take violent action against the government.” This in comparison to 16 percent of Americans overall.

And here’s the part that will likely make it to The Daily Show and SNL: 30% of Tea Party supporters are birthers; another 29 % are unsure where Obama was born. This compares to the 20% percent of Americans overall believe the president was not born in the United States. Emphasis mine. Honestly.

Caveat Lectores on Devil’s Neck Investment Opportunity

Today’s Caveat Lectores Rant is dedicated to Glenn Turner and Jim Bakker.

Things have been going so well at the Devil’s Neck Conference Center, the Board decided to syndicate the Devil’s Neck. For the minuscule price of $5000.00 (cash), you can become a part of history.

For this modest stipend, you will have unlimited 24/7 access to the Devil’s Neck. No more reservations or conference fees. No more annoying seminars to attend. You will automatically receive full credit for each and every workshop offered at the Devil’s Neck Conference Center, no matter what the subject.

How can Caveat Lectores make such an offer, you ask? Here’s how. Caveat Lectores has no ownership interest whatsoever in Devil’s Neck. All we are offering is an opportunity to spend your money for nothing in return. What could be simpler?

In order to avoid annoying issues with the IRS and the USPS, you must deliver the full amount in cash and in person. Just place the stipend (small bills please) in the former mail box in front of the Center. Dr. Hooby Boo checks the box daily. Be sure to leave a business card with the money so he will know to whom to send a thank you card or maybe not.

Where did Caveat Lectores get such an idea? A well connected Florida political party, of course. They developed a brilliant plan to take political donations from lobbyists, corporations, and the wealthy and not so wealthy true believers and use the money to live large while cajoling others to give even more donations. Ya gotta love ‘em. Like they say. It takes money to make money. Caveat Lectores wants some of that action.

In the interest of full disclosure, be assured, Caveat Lectores will dedicate the money you send to support such worthy causes as the WJCarnes Relief Fund, continuing research into wasteful spending habits and arrogant abuses of power.

And oh Yes, have a Nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on the Devil’s Neck Experience

We just completed the annual Devil’s Neck Labor/Management Kumbaya Retreat for 2010, and it was an unparalleled success. We completed the graduation ceremonies just before the bottom fell out of the clouds. The participant was pleased that we could get in our car before the deluge.

The Enhanced version of the Devil’s Neck Labor/Management Kumbaya Retreat was particularly popular this year among the management participants. For only $500.00 more, it really is a good value to just get the credit without actually having to attend. The instructional literature along with T-shirt, embossed ball cap and the coveted Lectores Labor Institute Graduate Certification will be in the mail soon for those who chose this option. We will need all the pictures sent to us before we can Photoshop anyone into the group picture.

For those who disregarded the on-site festivities, you missed out on the Friday night BBQ and Beerfest featuring smoked Ass of Yak and craft beers from all over the Devil’s Neck area. PBR was the group’s favorite, but Mickey’s Wide Mouth Malt Liquor came in a close second. The late night naked swim in the lake was marred only by the unfortunate incident with the Gator Bait Lodge’s pet. A few stitches and all the body parts are nearly as before. We do not expect any future issues with Bob’s ability to procreate.

Saturday’s final exam was hindered only because no one brought pencils and paper for the exam. We cannot be responsible for everything. Personal responsibility is just that. Next year, we will complete all the work on-line. It seems every participant had a Blackberry cranked up during the whole set of seminars. It took two days for anyone to realize there was no cellular or internet signal which give cause to wonder at what you were staring so intently.

For the next Devil’s Neck Labor/Management Kumbaya Retreat, we anticipate an airboat ride to the Sleepy Hollow Biker Bar in nearby Floral City. Be there or not. If not, just send the extra $500.00 for the Enhanced version. Cash only. To make reservations, just call the toll free number 800-YOU-BHAD.

And oh yes, have a nice Day?


Caveat Lectores on Education Reform

A large part of the Caveat Lectores readership is located outside Florida; therefore, this Rant may have no application to many. Unfortunately, what happens in one place tends to happen elsewhere much like a pandemic. This Rant may have relevance after all.

The Florida legislature just passed a piece of education reform legislation that astounds even me. WTF were they thinking? OK, I forgot. How silly of me. The rePuPlican dominated legislature does not think. The members follow leadership directives like sheep. Once the leadership decides how to screw the public, the sheep tag along.

Without taking up word processor space describing the piece of sh*t they passed, let me just say the new law dismantles the current education system by tying teacher pay to student improvement (standardized testing) and eliminates teacher tenure based upon the notion that tenure creates a job for life without accountability. Caveat Lectores disagrees with both concepts but….there will be plenty of expert pundits analyzing what is wrong and right about this idea.

I will address the issues the Caveat Lectores way.

Standardized FCAT testing has been soundly criticized by nearly all except the Jeb Bushy’s (yes, his legacy still lives) as a method of dumbing down the students in public schools. I am beginning to see the results at the university level in students who only know how to learn enough to pass a standardized test. Knowledge that will not be on the exam is irrelevant to them. Education has been abandoned because of the need to learn only certain facts necessary to pass the FCAT.

FYI. Bushites want to destroy the government run public school system in favor of charter schools that will eventually become public funded private schools for the wealthy, able to ignore those pesky minority children and those with problems that make things unpleasant for the wealthy (white) children of privilege. The students will be able to attend these charter schools that align themselves with the economically segmented and segregated communities they serve.

The political hacks that run them will prosper because these schools are allowed to operate without those annoying standards the public schools insist on having in place. Somebody will be served but certainly not be a society that needs the entire population educated. The education system currently in place has problems of course, but what has just occurred is not the answer; yet the rePuPs did it anyway.

There is another piece of legislation this term that increases corporate vouchers for charter schools. Frankly, I do not exactly understand how this works except to say that it is soundly thought of as corporate welfare in the form of tax breaks for corporations that further drain the public schools system of needed funds. Again, thank Jeb Bush and the rePuPs for additionally gouging the public for the benefit of business.

Senator John Thrasher (a Bushie) takes credit for this abomination for reasons that evade my understanding. I can understand his desire to punish the teachers who did not support him and Jeb Bush, but why punish the children? Usually, there is an obvious public purpose for legislation as well as a political motive. I have not been able to find evidence of a public outcry that would have motivated this insanity. There is always the issue about quality education; and teachers, one way or another, are usually blamed for lack of success.

Recently, teacher tenure became the “whipping post” to which right wing conservatives tie educators so they can affix blame. I guess the Bush mantra goes like this. “If we take away any semblance of job security from teachers and affix pay directly to an undeveloped plan of pay for performance, this will motivate who is left to become excellent teachers.” Wow, why didn’t I think of that?

BTW, in addition to other endeavors; I have been a fledgling adjunct instructor in the public university system for the last 17 years. My tenure runs from class meeting to class meeting on semester long contracts that allow the school to terminate me at will. On more than one occasion, the school has informed me they no longer need me, only to call me back to teach again. I have no complaints about this process because I have another career as a lawyer and labor consultant to rely upon to keep me marginally economically alive. My only child was educated in the public school system. I do have grand children at risk, however.

I have some concerns about how the entire public school system would operate if my situation were applied to all teachers in Florida. That is where we are headed with nothing more than yearly contracts for public school teachers. The only people who will remain in a few years are part-timers like me and those who cannot get another job outside what is left of the system. That does not sound promising.

Maybe the rePuPlican governor will nut up and veto such an ill conceived law. I would like to suggest you find out who voted for this law and punish them the next time they want your support so they can f*ck you again.

And Oh yes, have a Nice Day?

Caveat Lectores: Ode to a Tea Bagger

I just found this today. Cannot confirm who first came up with it but will not deny or argue with it. It has been floating around the Internet for a while with slightly different permutations. This may be the original.

Oh, hell no!

I've seen so many anti Obama rhetoric e-mails come to my PC since he was
elected about eleven months now. Here is the other side’s rhetoric. What do you

We had eight years of Bush and Cheney, Now you get mad!

You didn't get mad when the Supreme Court stopped a legal recount and
appointed a President.

You didn't get mad when Cheney allowed Energy company officials to dictate
energy policy.

You didn't get mad when a covert CIA operative got ousted.

You didn't get mad when the Patriot Act got passed.

You didn't get mad when we illegally invaded a country that posed no threat to us.

You didn't get mad when we spent over 600 billion(and counting) on said
illegal war.

You didn't get mad when over 10 billion dollars just disappeared in Iraq .

You didn't get mad when you found out we were torturing people.

You didn't get mad when the government was illegally wiretapping Americans.

You didn't get mad when we didn't catch Bin Laden.

You didn't get mad when you saw the horrible conditions at Walter Reed.

You didn't get mad when we let a major US city drown.

You didn't get mad when we gave a 900 billion tax break to the rich.

You didn't get mad when the deficit hit the trillion dollar mark.

You finally got mad when the government decided that people in America
deserved the right to see a doctor if they are sick. Yes, illegal wars, lies,
corruption, torture, stealing your tax dollars to make the rich richer, are all
okay with you, but helping other Americans... oh hell no.

I wish I had thunk that one up.

And Oh yes, Have a nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on Even More Insanity

Why do working people vote for RePuPlicans and follow right wing conservative tea baggers like lemmings over a cliff when doing so is against their interests? It beats the f**k outta me.

In Florida, we have a RePuPlican legislature that would not be in power if it were not for public employees, other working people and retirees who perennially vote for them. The current legislature is committed to harming us, each and every one. This statement applies to most of the other state governments, as well.

There are some really good people who belong to the RePuP party and run for office. All Rs are not bad. Unfortunately, it is more fashionable for many to identify with what the R party claims it stands for, therefore, the Rs continue to be a force in politics.

RePuPs have done a much better job than the Democraps, until recently, of claiming to be the party of family, religion, low taxes. You name it and the Rs seem to have staked the claim for it. I say that the only reason the Dems took the White House and Congress was because G.W. Bush and the Neo-cons were so terrible at governing. The Ds did not win. The Rs lost.

Finally, enough people could get themselves together on the same day to vote in enough non-RePuPs to force a change. What we ended up with is uncertain. The uninformed right wing zealotry still makes a lot of noise and seems to be more numerous than maybe they really are. I say uninformed because they remain blissfully ignorant of any facts that will not sustain the opinions they gained from drinking the right wing kool-aid. Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh and company are like gods to those who want instant sound bites that establish a reason to be against progress. The remaining Rs and the right wing pundits have a genius for tapping into the fears of the citizenry.

If we are to believe the right wing noise, the Dems are a bunch of socialist, Marxist communist, fascist, homosexual loving demons intent on destroying the American way of life by taxing the people into submission, while taking the guns needed to sustain a defense against a tyrannical foreign born, Islamic President who wants to deliver the whole county to the terrorists by demanding that insurance companies offer health insurance to every man, woman and child who lives here.

Apparently, it is impossible to be a patriot unless you swear allegiance to a Christian god (?) who wants to make sure only Americans of proper ancestry have access to the benefits of society. Your patriotism must include a desire to dismantle the same government that provides any service you do not want or believe others should enjoy.

What is the point? I got it out of my system. That is the point. Now I will go back to work.

And Oh yes, have a nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on PF (political fairness)

Let’s get real here. Why is the Florida Democrat party so incensed about the spending habits of the RePuPlicans?

Simply put, it is none of their (my) business. If the right wing, socially and economically conservative, political base wants to donate large amounts of their personal and corporate wealth for the RePuPlican leadership to spend on high living , personal expenses and visits to sado/masochistic titty bars, what right do I, as a Democrat, have to complain. It’s not my money. Caveat Lectores does not donate money to the RePuPs. WTF.

Isn’t that what being part of the privileged class is all about? Pander to the uninformed masses and those who really do not know the score; take their money; then screw them further by wasting the money and legislating against their best interests. (Actually, a lot of the money was donated by the rich and corporations who expect a certain amount of excess.)

Why is this a scandal? Why should the government investigate for criminal activity? Could it be because money used for personal expenses and non-political purposes should have been reported to the IRS for tax purposes?

Maybe Alex Sink and others do have more than political gain in mind. I doubt it but hope the Ds are squeaky clean because somebody will be looking into the spending habits of the Ds before this is over.

And Oh Yes, have a Nice Day?

Caveat Lectores on Friendship and Love

The Florida legislature is in session. Nobody is safe. The same is true elsewhere.
It is very important that public employees pay close attention to what is happening and keep careful notes of who is in favor of public employees and who is not. It is not as simple as just looking at who voted for what. You must identify the drivers of this out of control train.

Once you have fully identified who seeks to break your back, destroy your careers and will continue to do so if allowed. Here is what you must do.

Make the m*th*r f*ck*rs pay! Make them suffer! Make them get a job elsewhere!

If there is anything about that you do not understand, give me a call and I will explain in more graphic terms.

Usually, I take a kinder and gentler approach to political action. But no more until somebody gets the right idea about how to treat public employees.

And Oh yes, Have a nice day?
