Time For A Free-For-All

I'm battling a cold right now and in a bit of a fog, so best I don't prove it with a blog entry.

But, if there is something you want to talk about - here's your chance.  The silly season of the election?  Budget pros and cons?  Georgia Street name or costs?  Have at it.

The list of MSD Decatur Township School Board Members needs updated. Cathy Wiseman is not the president any longer.

Does anyone know who is running for School Board this year? Is it really Rosie and Webster?

Phil Webster said...

I am not running for the school board this year. I can not run because the district I live in already has two school board candidates, and neither of the two are up for re-election. I do however encourage all residents in Decatur Township to get involved with their public schools and to participate in the election of those people who will be in charge of guiding our children's education for at least the next two years.
On a side not:
To the anonymous writer that said that I should know when a political action committee must register with the state of Indiana here is your answer.

A political action committee does not have to register with the state until they have raised at least one hundred dollars or spent one hundred dollars in an attempt to get someone elected. The group of people that are meeting tonight at the Home Place at 7:00 on Mooresville to find good candidates to run in the school board elections this year have not raised nor have they spent one hundred dollars and therefore do not have to register with the state. They have not nor are they breaking the law.

There is no dr. henson. You need to lay off the sauce. Typing under the influence is just as bad as driving under the influence and can land you in just as much trouble. It's high time to close the wet bar at central office. THIS BLOG IS BEING MONITORED BY THE PROBATION DEPT.

If anyone reading this blog doubts the need for the unbiased members of the bza, you only need to watch the video of board III dated august 25 2009. 2009AP3004.
I was being robbed of everything I owned. I was the victim of a witch hunt, led by my neighborhood organization, WIDC (West Indianapolis Development Corporation)and backed by the city of Indianapolis. Both of which are highly financed and backed by Eli Lilly. I fully expect that any pursuit of justice in the aftermath of this hearing will be paid for by me, at the hands of the very same entities that brought me the nightmare that I suffered during those three years.
This conspiracy involved many city institutions as well as private ones. Thank God for my ability to interperate the regulations and procedures of the city. All attorneys qualified to represent an individual in these matters are already placed on retainer by those performing this witch hunt.
I feel sorry for the thousands of home and business owners who have lost there life savings to the corrupt behavior of these institutions.
My nightmare surely is not over, but the BZA for the moment gave this neighbor a breather.
The corruption in these institutions runs deep. Without having been the victim of this Nazi style grinding wheel, I would have never believed that the corruption ran so deep.
I was actually supported by all of my neighbors. They would not make a personal stance due to the repercussions that they may face from these entities. These entities include but are not limited to my neighborhood organization WIDC, WINC, IMPD, Code Enforcement, IPS, DMD, MDC, Prosecuting Attorneys Office, Health Department just to name a few.
Due to my lack of experience in these matters I had already been placed in the lions pit with most of these institutions during a bogus hearing on may 15 2007 (part 2). 2007AP2001. During this first hearing you will see the spin doctor ( paid for by WIDC, who is backed by Eli Lilly). You can see clear bias by the only female member of the board at the end of this hearing. Though my attorney at the time may have been a little less influential than WIDC and there ilk, he still stated the case that I legally had a right to this LNCU. This fell on def ears.
If I had relied on council to represent me in this matter I would have been bankrupt. Most attorneys in the city would not have brought this scandal to light in the manner that I was forced to do at this 2009 hearing. Any attorney who would represent me wanted tens of thousands of dollars to retain them. Not to mention what the end cost might have been.
It took me a year to get the city to pick up garbage from the residences located here, after i had won this case.
I began watching board hearings and the like on channel 16. Later that year MCANA started making bogus claims about a 19 year veteran member of this board, who was the chairman of board, Alan Rethorford. Considering the fact that he does not go along with these witch hunts, I for one, am glad that MCANA did not succeed.
Most of these neighborhood organizations are participated in by a few individuals with nothing better to do than go on these witch hunts, and are in no way representative of the neighborhood as a whole.
The current mayor is touting his plan to demolish 4000 homes in the city of Indianapolis. I can only cringe at the number of these homes that may have traveled the same path as myself, except they obtained a negative result in their struggle.
The manipulation of the citizens by the powers that be pits neighbors against neighbors and manipulates the systems in place to represent us all. Justice in these matters generally boils down to the wealth of the individual who is being tied to the stake. This is a very grim picture for the future of our children in this city as well as our country.

The neighborhood in which my building exist has been targeted by the city, our own neighborhood organization and Eli Lilly. As a result the police have been corrupt in delivering justice to these residents. Multiple homes and businesses have been burned without as much as a peep from our so call neighborhood organization. Code compliance has manipulated laws to help the city take over these properties. The DMD has been manipulative in its role to represent the rights of these citizens. The MDC has taken control of these properties and awarded them to the zealots that initiated the attacks on them. Where do these families go after their homes and businesses have been destroyed by this corruption. Divorce ? Bankruptcy? Separation ? A life of crime ? Do you think that these victims of the system will ever trust our government again ?
I am all for fixing up our city and making it a better place for us all. This behavior is not making our citizens better off, it is disrupting thousands of lives and displacing them. “The least of these” are being trampled on daily. You only need sit at the hearings in the community court F12 to see what the city does to the people who don’t live up to the standards of these zealots.
Our system of capitalism can not function without a lower class. How low that class is can be raised a little by function of government and community. Burning people at the stake will not get rid of them nor help them, it only serves as a tool to move them, demoralize them and imprison them.
These practices are not limited to political parties. Both parties are responsible for the corruption that is taking place.

Here's something for you:


Beckman Coulter is currently in the midst of yet another round of job cuts. Someone I am related to was let go just last week. I don't know the total number of people they cut.

But again we have a situation where generous grants and tax abatements were handed to entice a company to come here, and just 2 years later they are trimming headcount.

It would be interesting to find out how they are doing vs the parameters that went with those enticements.

Some discussions from the affected people here:
