Politicians and bureaucrats are considered productive if they swarm the populace like a plague of locust, devouring all substance in their path and leaving a swath of destruction like a firestorm. The technical term is "bipartisanship".

Glad she won out.  Wish she could have gotten more.

Just wish the money was taken from those responsible instead of from the tax payers.

I agree with this.

But as I recall the winning plaintiff in an unrelated suit (BIG verdict, small town) declared, if the taxpayers feel pain because of their elected official's misdeeds, maybe they'll learn to be more careful about who they vote for. In the case of this post, it would seem the school board - probably elected - failed to rein in the local school's bureaucrats.

Pretty close to me.  My HS played that school, back in the day.  Rockford area is a heap big liberal city.

I remember those days. We had a teacher disciplined for pushing her libtard agenda.
What we have here is failure to communicate.

Except that will never happen because 60% of people just do whatever they're told or what they're told everyone else is doing (whether that is is true or not) and absolutely will not change their voting habits.

So the rest of us that would learn from it are instead forced to pay for the misdeeds of others, because of the insanity of universal franchise.

Hallelujah and amen.

However, if the local bureaucrats had done any reining, then they would have been subject to right-denying lawsuits.

I agree with you, but don't know how to cure it, since the cure for "everybody votes" might be worse than the disease, and we have already gone over the tipping point anyway.

'Tis a puzzlement.

There is no proof without evidence.
There is no evidence without investigation.
There is no investigation without suspicion.
Suspicion without proof is paranoid.

All nicely wrapped up, right?

I recommend banning voting by 1) any gov employee  2) anyone receiving any sort of welfare or subsidy payments from the government.

I can dream, I guess...

So long as military retirement and VA disability is not included.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Including those on Social Security/Disability after paying into it all their working lives?

For those who have paid in, yes.  For those that draw it without paying in, no.

Uncompensated government money (given to you without you having paid in to the system in labor or investment) should void franchise.


As a second argument it would better if franchise was earned, but a universal franchise with disbarment for conflicts of interest is an excellent middle ground to work towards.  It also has the benefit of being constitutional as it presently stands and implemented at the state government level.

As a Department of Defense employee, I would prefer to continue to vote against the clowns in Connecticut who have held political office for decades.
