Sign Vandalism

“Its Normal”

That is sort of the response I get when I get my political signs vandalized. We should not tolerate things because that is the way they have become. Thats why I am running for office. My vandalized signs are a great analogy to the status quo nature of politics. Things are just accepted. Integrity is lost and expectations are lowered.

Whoever did it, I hope you understand that it goes to show the truth of the matter. When what you supposedly ‘support’ is so weak that you have to attack another through force then you are the weak one. You have no integrity or honor. You are so riddled with fear and ignorance that you do only what is left to a person of such little substance. You attack with force.

I had one sign flattened to the ground.  Obviously not just ‘punks’ up to mischief because the sign was bent down and left alone after that except for two foot prints. A random property vandal would have attacked the ‘fun’ part of the side and torn it up. This was an attempt to clobber the message. Another sign was just outright removed. City sign enforcement will notify candidates of sign violations so this wasn’t the city. It was someone that is ruled by fear. So afraid of competition that they will violate their own integrity to attack another.

So I will still stand up and do what I have done. I fight to end the reign of people like you that would use force upon other to satisfy your fears. You great others and their property as if it were garbage, but it is your own integrity as a person you have thrown away. I hope that one day you see that fear is not a path to anything good. I hope that one day you will choose to Live Free.

I apologize to my donors. I wish I could protect your investment in the message for a better San Antonio. I will continue to fight for you and your support. We have something greater than those that would tear us down.

Pre-K 4 SA Vol 1

The first issue of Pre-K 4 SA from the City of San Antonio came out today. It is basically a big push piece on how great it will and what it hopes to be. Government should not be judged upon its intent but upon its reality. I will not rehash arguments here but I did want to point out a few issues I saw reading through the newsletter.

…students will be educated annually in four education centers and through competitive grants.

Grants given by political entities are inherently political. That means the word competitive here implies competition in the political sense and not the market sense.

Under “Job Opportunities” is listed “Additional Staff”

Are they so eager to spend and hand out money and “create jobs” that they don’t even bother to have a position of need? They just “need” more people as “staff”? Questionable at best.

Seven school districts, which represent 90% of the eligible Pre-K student population, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to engage in the Pre-K 4 SA program. Some school districts that have decided not to participate in the first year of the program are contemplating a partnership with Pre-K 4 SA in subsequent years. The first two education centers will provide Pre-K services to 700 students. Through the Pre-K and school districts’ partner-ship agreement, 630 of the 700 students will come from the seven participating school districts. The remaining 70 will come from a city-wide lottery and consist of families who will pay a tuition based on their family income.

The political punishment/reward system already starting. I thought this was for all of San Antonio? Also, why not make all families pay a tuition based on income?

The Pre-K 4 SA’s Education Centers will utilize research-based early childhood curriculum.

Like the federal and state government have been promising for their education of students? Someone a city government won’t be bogged down in politics and special interests like the rest of politics?

The Pre-K 4 SA grassroots pub-lic awareness campaign begins in April. San Antonio has selected the bilingual public relations firm, aMAEzing, to help educate families regarding Pre-K 4 SA

Grassroots campaigns don’t have public relations firms. They are also proud to announce that they are spending your tax money to “educate” you on this program.

Education is important to me. I think its the core of fixing many problems we have as a society. Its so important that I want to get government out of the education business. There is nothing more dangerous than politicians controlling the developing minds of citizens and making parents dependent upon them for any hope of success for their children.
