So.  How could have that money been spent within Christina School District if a charter School hadn’t siphoned off that and wasted it in a fiasco of epic proportions?

Could we have saved one student?  Two?  Maybe a whole class?  Maybe all 16,807 could have had some educational benefit from this total, which I should point out, we only have of the fiscal state funding so far…..

Here exactly is why Charter Schools fail

They spend that total on just barely offering the barest minimum of educational opportunities….

Doubling the above total  and spending it within the Christiana school district would provided all current 16,807  students,  EVERY SINGLE ONE, with an additional $152.00 per child to spend upon their education…..

This is money spent on extra’s.  On those things that make students learn.  On salaries, On supplies.  The basics are already cared for… so this incremental amount goes straight to augmenting each student’s ability to learn…..

When you pursue  a charter school philosophy,  you are stealing  $152,00 from every single child from elementary up to twelfth grade, and squandering it upon items like…. A-1 Sanatation, ADT Security Systems,  and half a million dollars to 4048 Associates…..

How do those expenses help our children learn, especially when those expense are being paid for over the Christiana District already?   By pursuing the misguided policy of  funding Charter Schools, we are paying for two trash bills, two electric bills, one extra lease payment to private individuals,  two electronic security services…..

And with every new Charter School opened,  given only a 17% chance of survival, meaning  a failure rate on the investment of 83% of our wasted tax dollars, more and more is bled from that fund that actually does what it is supposed to do…. teach our kids and make them want to learn.

Charter Schools can go private. That is fine. But public money is not well spent to help out one’s buddies owning 4048 Associates……

Caesar Rodney Institute has promoted Charter Schools as being the future of education.  As posted earlier, Charter Schools always fail.

As one more example piled upon the skyscraper of evidence, here is Pencader Charter School today…..

To say this happens in public schools all the time, misses the point… We spent millions on this Charter School just to allow kids to learn in an environment where THIS WOULD NOT HAPPEN.

The inside story is that adults were responsible for this unfortunate situation, not students.

One more charter schools fails again.  Yet Caesar Rodney is still trying to get hard earned tax dollars spent on these wasteful projects just so it’s benefactors can get their hands on some of your money….

Wouldn’t that money have been better spent rebuilding one of the schools we already got?

Of course it would.  Charter schools always was, is , and will be a horrible idea….   In fact, for quick reference, anything   everything the Caesar Rodney Institute sells itself out to represent, is… a horrible idea.   I guess that is why they are there.  So people with horrible ideas can try to fool the rest of us who don’t have time to do the research to understand this fake organization is lying to us…. they’ll say anything for a fee, mind you, for a fee.

Vote Indian River's Referendum January 29th
Courtesy of Coastal Point.

Briefly John Young showed me this message.

That coupled with this old News Journal piece bears some response.

If one reads the entire article, the message being put forth by the Caesar Rodney Institute comes bluntly down to this …

Vote NO in the Indian River School District Referendum.

As for finding a rational reasons for voting no, other than the obvious one (so my benefactors don’t have to pay more money) it is a little harder.

The statement being made for what one could say is “one of the highest quality school districts overall in Delaware”, is that brand new Charter Schools are “better” and such for-profit entities should therefore pick up the additional influx of students instead of these top rated public schools,

The voters are being asked to NOT do something they do very well, and instead, gamble on something that only one person in the world thinks works, (James E. Hosley, director of the Center for Education Excellence at the Caesar Rodney Institute.)

Yep, that is his argument.

Now if you are inclined to believe every medicine man who parks beside the creek in his horse drawn cart just before a tornado touches down, go ahead. But don’t be surprised if some of us like to look at facts first. And the facts are pretty obvious. Charter Schools don’t work.

They don’t work for a very good reason. Because in order to earn a profit (that’s what Charter schools do) they have to cut back on many expenses which public education doesn’t.)… They cheat the students out of opportunities in order to can make themselves rich… Pretty much, that is the bottom line.

So Indian River? Would you want your district’s children continue to get a first class education? Or a school that will only spend $50 per student per year?

James Hosley (Caesar Rodney Institute) is entreating you to do the latter. To be honest, he does not appear to want any charter schools to be built. He simply doesn’t want the referendum passed.

Let us look just for one minute how “his” charter schools are performing? From past News Journal headlines.

A) Pencader’s charter to be revoked because of “serious financial and governance concerns.”

B) Closing of Delaware’s Maurice Moyer Academy highlights vital education issues.

C) The Board voted 4-3 Thursday to approve Secretary of Education Valerie Woodruff’s proposal to NOT to renew the school’s charter. Woodruff said she was concerned by poor student performance at the K-8 school.

And now here we have a “real” research institution. The University of Delaware. Hear their response.

Between 1994 and 2004, 26 Charter Schools received charters. Eleven failed to open. Few foresaw the disruptions that would occur at the business/operations level. Nationally 66% of Charter’s schools problems are because of funding and mismanagement. Charter Schools can discontinue their services at anytime, even during a school year. People who were initially focused on providing an improved learning environment for children find themselves increasingly engaged in issues like funding for permanent facilities, personnel-relations procedures, and school-board management, all the while trying to understand and meet the state and federal laws for which they are still responsible.

Unless you have a Bill or Melinda Gates living in Indian River who will oversee and provide “unlimited funding” (up to $100 million), a new charter school in Indian River District will fail.

Why?

They will have to fund/or lease and entire transportation system.
They will have to create a higher/paying teacher incentive to attract top notch talent.
They will have to build from scratch or completely renovate an old building to bring it into the newest strict codes.
They will have to fund music, arts, sports, yearbook, newspapers, plays, to remain competitive with pubic schools.

None of these are items on the Caesar Rodney’s plate. They couldn’t care less. They only care that this referendum is voted down so they can “harp” on “big government” being defeated. Their reasoning has yet so show concern for one single child.

Now compare the dismal failures of Charter Schools everywhere to Indian River District…..

243 students have choiced into Indian River from other districts.

Ranked 2nd in Delaware for Academic Achievement.

In 2011 Indian River claimed the Division 2 state championship beating Caravel, 35-13.

This showcases the triumph of Public school education over that of underfunded, mismanaged privatized Delawarean Charter School attempts to excel at education.

No one in their right mind would vote against this referendum in order to help students; you will vote against it because your are selfish. A vote against the referendum hurts students; it hurts all of Indian River District’s students. Now, every person or group has the right to disseminate information promoting their cause. The danger occurs when one does not already know that the Caesar Rodney Institute has been repeatedly shown to be a disproven source of information. The word of the Caesar Rodney Institute has as its worth, about equivalent to that of an Iranian jihadist’s view on “what Jesus really meant”. They are the last person you ever want to listen to… Just look at the data above!

I getting a bad feeling about this. Who can tell us? What’s this mean?

Btw. There is a monster hurricane approaching Alaska with a low of 943mb. Category 4 if it were an actual hurricane. It is so huge it would stretch from the East Coast of the US to Denver.

Fact. The deck of the Rusty Rudder, is lower in elevation than St. Marks Square…..

Globial Warming …. (Despite the Caesar Rodney Institute)

It’s coming.

Today’s News Journal did the first eight pages of this Sunday’s paper, on how global warming was destroying Delaware’s coast. Seriously, we now are debating whether or not to protect Rehoboth Beach for this Century, or just let nature take it over…

Global warming is real. The Ocean says so.

And yet, in order to make a balanced news=piece, Dr. Stapleton of the Caesar Rodney Institute is called upon to make a statement. He has done a couple of op-ed pieces that have been torn apart by experts in many fields as employing artificial data to get artificial conclusions.

The News Journal today, began to discredit him.

If you are a newspaper and you want credibility you have to report the truth. I am glad to see the News Journal put such a great effort, I don’t think I have ever seen this many reporters doing different articles on the same topic.

When you have waves rising over protective barriers, and you have fresh marshes now salt marshes, and you have flooding for the first time from a little no name storm that was higher than that during Hurricane Sandy, compared to one person, Dr. Stapleton, who is saying, global warming does not exist, oceans are not rising, ice is not melting, storms are not getting worse, temperature around the world is not getting warmer…. the newspaper has an obligation to the public, to ridicule Dr. Stapleton opinions for flying in the face of reality, and thoroughly discredit his organization, the Caesar Rodney Institute, as the Ministry of Magic….

This idea that one has to report junk science in order to be fair and balanced, is not fair and not balanced to those who are trying to form a consensus to deal with the problem. Great resources will need to be committed, and if the New Journal is treating false science as a truth, it is doing a great disservice to coastal residents, the state, and the counties that have to act now…

The News Journal should do a piece that totally discredits Dr. Stapleton and calls him out for his propaganda… Then it has the obligation to every Delawarean to never mention, or let his rants appear in the News Journal as opinion pieces… ever again….

When I was young, and I haven’t been able to find it, we were forced to read a short story about Death Valley. It was supposedly taken from a diary found next to stripped skelatons, that told of a party lost in the desert, which found an oasis, drank the clear cool water, then got poisoned because it was toxic with arsenic…..

That is what the Tea Party has done for the Republican Party.

Had the Tea Party never been formed, there is a good likelihood that Romney would now be the President-elect. Think about that for a minute. Everything Romney was pummeled for, came from the Tea Party contingent. If a nice man had simply stood up, with Obama’s economic record, that nice man might have won by default. But, every Tea Party issue the Republicans took on, generated more voters against that plank, than it did for.

No taxes; More voters think taxes should be raised on the wealthy.
No Abortions: more voters think the government should continue to make contraception free.
No Government: Hurricane Sandy showed what a disaster that would be.
No Evolution: More people believe science over politicians. Evolution and Global Warming are real.
Put Religious Fanatics in Control: More Americans feel that is too risky.

As a result, Obama won by the 6th largest landslide in American history. People really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, and unequivocally, hate the Tea Party.

I’ve always said the Tea Party was on the right track. Only difference between the two of us, is that they blame government for being in bed with corporate henchmen, and I blame the corporate henchmen for seducing the politicians and infiltrating government. On that and views on science, we differ.

But, they blew up. Glenn Beck, blew up. Rush Limbaugh, blew up, Christine O’Donnell, blew up. Rupert Mourdock, blew up. Todd Akins, blew up. Ann Coulter, blew up. Michelle Malkin, blew up. Especially karl Rove on Fox News… blew up..

There is a reason some people are the last to get picked on a pickup team. They are creepy. And that is todays Tea Party…

The Tea Party is the significant reason Congress today is divided. It is impossible for Republicans to get any majority in the Senate, because the Tea Party sets every one against them.

This metaphor explains why. Imagine if instead of winning Germany in 1932, the Nazi Party was just a minor party in the Reichstag. Assume they had one plank in their platform: Banish all Jews. Assume they were aligned with the Republican Party of Germany because it was small, and Jews were a big bloc of the German Democratic Party… Because the Republicans needed the Nazi’s to have a majority, they entertained their notion of banishing all Jews. The Republicans griped it was a necessary evil that had to be tolerated, and longed for the day, it would die on its own… But because of that one embarrassing group, the whole Republican Party kept getting bashed in every election, getting smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and smaller, and smaller…

Finally they eject the Nazi’s who quickly die from lack of oxygen. Upon the next election, Republicans make great gains. You see, people weren’t real happy with the Democrats either, but as long as Nazi’s were in the Republican Party, the Democrats were the lesser of the two evils….

The Tea Party Congress, the soon to be historical name for the 112th Congress, will have the notoriety of being the worst Congress held in public esteem, ever since public esteem was invented back in the 1940’s. An approval rating of 9%. 9%. That is what the Tea Party did to government.

The fiscal cliff today drags on. Because as Obama put it so well today, the Tea Party won’t compromise. No surrender is their motto, which may sound great if it is the same philosophy as the rest of the country’s, but it isn’t. We are witnessing the childish two year old tantrum of a immature group that can’t get everything it wants. Like a two year old child, it sits down on the Capitol floor, and screams, screams, screams, screams, screams, screams….. Like that two year old child, because no one comes up and kicks him in the head and instead everyone tries to plead with him to stop, he thinks he is doing the right thing!

As I said, it was the Tea Party that destroyed Republican chances at the White House, and kept them from taking the Senate. How much longer will the Republicans try to bargain with this two year old?

Perhaps they could find some Arsenic to put in its baby bottle?

Quote by Wallace Stevens.

In my case, Bloom is obviously referencing the new site occupying the railroad tracks on the site of the ex-Chrysler manufacturing plant. If you saw today’s News Journal, you probably saw the piece regarding the lawsuit being brought against it.

Sigh. I guess the election was the moon passing before the sun… a major drama extinguishing interest in the sunspots occupying the suns surface at the time…

(Explanation of that metaphor: a total eclipse is an unnerving event if ever experienced. However it does no damage as neither would the shadow of a passing cloud. However, our entire solar system and particularly our electrical, communications, and space technologies, live and die by explosive sunspot activities. Where and when a burst does occur, can have a profound impact upon us, far more severe than an eclipse in the Indian ocean off Australia might. But an eclipse will dominate our entire thought process, the same as our election blocked very important local matters from our view; matters that have far more effect on Delaware than says who wins the 4th or 19th Senate might.)

The complaint is filed by John Nichols, clone extrodinaire of the Caesar Rodney Foundation. This foundation is a quasi information function set up by unelectable Republican operatives to offer false evidence against scientific principals… They are primarily known for saying Global Warming is a hoax created by Al Gore because they have proof it has since snowed in Pakistan; no kidding here so yeah, you know the types.)

Bloom Energy wants to build a manufacturing spot on the East Coast… Their operation will probably be as big as the Chrysler operation was during its heyday. The equivalence of this in scale, is that if we had lived in the horse and buggy days (1911), and someone wanted to introduce a new technology to manufacture an item called the horseless carriage, we would probably have the ancestor of John Nichols, along with a company specializing in rubber buggy bumpers, around to interfere with the investment of THAT, too… (In other words, nuisance lawsuits are allowed by our Constitution although complaining against REAL progress as such, benefits no one.)

What are Bloom boxes? If you don’t know, here is an interesting video that fairly quickly explains not only how they work, but gives you the vision of just how important they can be if Delaware jumps on the bandwagon first….

The Bloom boxes create electricity while providing heat and hot water to neighboring businesses, and creates little pollution.

With that in focus, one can see that a vendetta against science of which John Nichols is the tip of the spear, is simply that. The use of false science conveniently made up by the Cesar Rodney Institute, to dismantle a viable economic program that actually has no real cost to John Nichols or anyone else…

Here is the complaint that was filed…. I should note it is being helped along by a major competitor of Bloom Energy, called FuelCell Energy, based out of Danbury, Connecticut. So in this odd combination, we have a non science proponent, teemed up conveniently with a competitor who gains prodigiously if Bloom is shut down. Instead of duking it out in the market place, FuelCell Energy has jumped on this case to metaphorically pull a King Herod, … kill all babies two years or less in Bethlehem…

The complaint has three legs.

The first is violation of the Commerce Clause. FuelCell cannot come in and compete.

The second is John Nichols is being forced to pay more to Delmarva for electricity than is market.

The third is equity issues. These charges would be paid by Delmarva customers but not by Tidewater or other company’s customers.

So we will respond to all three.

The first complaint is that REPSA (Renewable Energy Portfolio Standards Act) violates the commerce clause because it restricts unfettered business across state lines. This may appear worthy on the surface of such a claim, but this particular claim totally fails to justify how not regulating greenhouse gases was not in the interest of every state resident. In fact, the complaint does not mention the greenhouse equation at all. The REPSA was the legislature’s acknowledgement that considerable costs to society derive from its use of energy. Any accounting for one’s energy cost, in fairness must include the total cost to society, and not just the cost of the fuel…

Bluntly put as a rudimentary example. I could pour fuel oil into a hole dug in my backyard, set fire and keep it burning indefinitely. However, my fumes would sicken my neighborhood and spread for miles around. I might pay back some of those costs to society upon going to the hospital the next time I got sick, in paying them the higher fees that my risk had created… But in my own world, I could say, I’m free, this is cheap. In the larger picture, someone else is paying dearly for my freedom and my cheapness….

So, for those who know the players, it is obvious that this is little more than a philosophical measure being brought to penalize an imaginary enemy of “liberals”, who dared enable legislation that marginalizes profits of someone’s patron: the petrochemical companies…. It has nothing to do with John Nichols paying an extra dollar or of FuelCell being competitive.

Here is why. The Commerce Clause gives the Federal Government the right to regulate commerce between the states; (hence for future reference it will be called the “interstate commerce clause” here as is common practice.) The question in this case becomes: why would the Federal Government want to?

Doing so would disrupt a major economic deal in works, a big negative. It would prevent the gigantic manufacturing facility from being built, a big negative. It would eradicate the possibility of over a 1000 building and manufacturing jobs, lasting for at least 21 years, a big negative. It would delay the implementation of the Carbon Control program, a big negative. It would create environmental hardship, by continuing unabated the current CO2 levels possibly leading to higher oceans and storms like Sandy, a very big negative.

The argument being given in this complaint, states that FuelCell Energy, “could have” provided a competitive bid. But because of this legislation, it now cannot do so….

On the surface this may appear to have merit. However, once stepping back, it is laughable in its reality. Along the same lines as this argument, would we allow some of Middletown’s center city businesses to void their obligations on their legal requirements, simply because Wal*Mart moved and built a gigantic operation on the outside of town? Of course not! Timing of the signature on a contract, is a very important part of any equation.

In the perfect Conservative dreamworld, if FuelCell had competed at the time we were negotiating with Bloom and presented a lower rate, and had we not months ago signed an agreement with Bloom, (even though that still would have been within our prerogative), their case could be stronger. But to come suddenly too late, and say annul the agreement, is again, laughable based on the basic tenants of contract law. It would be as if married to my spouse, and suddenly a new prospect transfers into my employment, and angrily demands my marriage be annulled,… Why? …So they can have a fair, equal chance to compete… Uhh, excuse me, Honey; if you’d been here through the courtship, your pleas then could have been considered. But to annul a marriage just because “you didn’t get your chance”? As I said, in business such lawsuits are unfortunately allowed under the Constitution. So hopefully this one gets thrown out with no major expenses incurred by Delaware taxpayers.

The second plank of the complaint is that John Nichols will have to pay more for electricity than is the current market price. As mentioned above, his market in the case, is smaller than the market considered by REPSA. All health benefits, all savings due from clean energy, all savings from keeping the ocean as low as it is, all quality of life issues, are included in the cost under REPSA. Paying cheap fuel, then getting hit with a $250,000 medical bill is not cheaper, for anyone. Better to pay slightly more per kilowatt, and have NO medical bill! That is the wisdom behind REPSA.

REPSA is sanctioned by our government. It is the will of We, The People. John Nichols may not consider himself to share in the view of the majority of Delaware’s population. That is his right. However, we too, are under no obligation to also be forced to share the view of one crackpot minority. Global warming is real, and the majority acted to do something about it.

Secondly, the issues being brought by John to augment his case, would continue to be in place regardless of whether Bloom or FuelCell Energy was providing this same option. Costs would be closely the same. Pollution would be the same. The contract would be the same. If FuelCell had wanted a piece of this market, they should have made a cold call. The only difference between FuelCell and Bloom is jobs. Bloom will build a plant that hires 1000 people in Delaware for 21 years. FuelCell Energy builds its boxes in Connecticut. We will grow jobs there while spending the same cost we would be paying Bloom here….

As a state, “We the People” have the option to choose the best deal for ourselves. 1000 people working at $50,000 a year pumps, $50,000,000 into our economy. Over the course of twenty one years, a little over a trillion dollars will be plunked directly, infused into Newark’s economy. That investment must be coupled alongside any cost to determine what will be the true benefit Bloom Energy provides us, We the People who live in this state’s confines….

So when John says he will pay more for electricity, he is wrong because whoever takes Bloom’s place will charge him the same, yet the economic recovery which benefits everyone, would be absent. The net loss or cost, would be far more than John is complaining about now.

The final point of his complaint, is equity issues. John says the costs of this deal only apply to Delmarva Power customers. They won’t apply to those customers who opt out on one of the green plans Delmarva offers, or those on City power grids, or those on grids downstate under other private companies’ ownership.

Again, John is looking just at the surcharge. He is not counting the fact that Delmarva Power Customers pay less than do others whose grids have to buy smaller, higher priced amounts. Those entities lacking the negotiating power of Delmarva, pay more already. For John’s argument to have merit, the court must require all companies to charge all Delawareans the same. Despite that fact that regional distribution differences (it costs more to provide power further away from the source) would rather severely penalize the other companies. Therefore, because costs vary, if you decide that the other companies are to be “allowed” to charge what they need, then that same rule must also apply to Delmarva Power. It “needs” to charge more for Bloom energy.

John’s argument is just out of luck. On its merits alone, the court will decide to dismiss.

Now, let’s look at the extenuating factors.. This is the fun stuff. FuelEnergy just ten days ago, announce a huge deal with a South Korean consortium to provide fuel cells there. For it to make Delaware’s fuel cells, we would have to wait an awful long time.

FuelCell is rapidly becoming the monopoly in the fuel cell wars. John is playing right into their hands in reaching out to them to join him here. They would like nothing better than for Bloom to go out of business. Bloom is scheduled to begin returning on its investment this year…

Fuel Cells are tailor made for the East Coast. No pollution using cheap natural gas, they can be fired up providing electricity during peak times right where it is needed. When peak demand hits at 2:30 pm on a summers day, these boxes can kick on, easing the load of the grid, quietly, pollution free, no CO2, right where they are needed. In fact, one can imagine these boxes on top of skyscrapers, providing an entire building’s energy needs, as well as providing its heat, and hot water too. Putting a coal powered power plant in the heart of Manhattan is not an option. Yes, the demand is such; these boxes will sell….

Western State Connecticut University is powering such a building beginning December this year. In this article the University’s administration brings up their hope to teach fuel cell technology to their students. The proximity of Bloom to the University of Delaware, also creates the possibility of creating a hub of fuel cell technologies spinning of the Bloom plant and expert talent from the University.

Here is the op ed piece place in the Washington Times by John Nichols. Obviously it is a one side attempt in a business friendly paper to drum up support for getting rid of the Greenhouse Gas Initiatives. Bottom line: most people don’t want to give up and throw in the towel on global warming, especially if we can fix it for only pennies a day.

Here is a fuel cell up and running in Orange County California. It’s by-product is hydrogen which is used in gas stations to power hydrogen cars from LA to San Diego.

Here is what FuelCell Energy is working on in South Korea. It will be the largest fuel cell manufacturing plant of its kind. Soon, we may be giving our technology edge to Korea thanks to FuelCell Energy who is providing the expertise for this South Korean adventure.

Finally, the lawyer representing John Nichols and FuelCell Energy is part of a DC operation that tends to be one sided on their lawsuits. Cause of Action by its name alone, suggests a history of barrity… the legal equivelent of ambulance chasing.

I was more intrigued with Amber D Abbasi’s case here, than with the case on unsure footing she filed here in Delaware….. Again, the evidence there too does not decide in her favor. There is a valid reason two lesbians who want to artifically inseminate with a mutual friends sperm, must have it tested, whereas married heterosexual couples who already would have shared any risks of STD’s between, would not necessarily need to….

Bottom line, It is probably a good thing overall that this lawsuit over Bloom Energy was recently filed. Just to reiterate again to Delaware’s public (and prove Rick Jensen wrong) just how good this deal will be for all of Delaware as soon as it gets moving forward, barring anymore litigation from the Dinosaur’s Anonymous wing of the Anti-Global Warming Club.

Wow. For a small state, we sure got more than our fair share of kooks here, didn’t we?
