The paint job you decry on Republicans is the one that they applied to themselves with their continual push in the legislature for bills to be enacted into law that destroy the fundamental concept of public education in Ohio.

The notorious remarks of Republican Governor Kasich about teachers, immediately after he won a plurality of the vote, show the personal animus he holds for educators and he has worked hard to exact retribution on public school educators and school systems.

It is clearly a vendetta from the Republican governor not unlike the one he brought to a massive failure against “idiot cops” and other public employees in the overreaching SB5-Issue 2 Republican political debacle

The current Republican effort to wreak havoc on public schools by false accusations and paranoid delusions is being brought forward by Delaware Republican, Adam White, while he disregards the duties and responsibilities of his elected office to carry out the Ohio Republican agenda to destroy public education in this state.

Nowhere in any of the numerous comments, some mine, is the success of the OLSD attributed to Democrats.

You “Be Reasonable” and you alone are making that political leap. Clearly you are just attempting another baseless political attack comprised of only your imaginary facts. The Ohio and Delaware Republican antipathy toward and attacks on teachers and public education is both well-known and well-documented. That's what's real

It’s time you face up to the reality of the hate mongering bigots of the Delaware and Ohio Republican Party who seek repression of our children through destruction of effective public education.

The success of the Olentangy schools under Wade Lucas is real and something even Republican liars cannot make go away.

Again, "Be Reasonable" another false allegation, nowhere did anyone other than you suggest that Mr. White suffers from a psychosis or mental disease such as paranoia. You own that one.

The personal attacks by "phil" against Lucas have little to do with the reality of the success of the OLSD. Try as you might to denigrate Lucas, he is the leader of the school system and deserves credit for its success to the extent of his role. Just because you don’t like an organizational leader doesn’t mean that their leadership is ineffective and the organization’s success is not a real accomplishment.

Spewing personal hatred and false allegations in desperation to damage a person’s accomplishments or their professional and personal reputation is highly unethical as is the unscrupulous conduct of the Delaware Republicans we see documented on public records.

In that vein it is a typical Republican ploy to lie about, misrepresent factual situations, and accuse persons perceived as adversaries in order to render them ineffective or force them out of a role that the Republicans want for themselves. It’s been done many times in Delaware County and was the basis of the failed Ohio Republican SB5 effort. It doesn’t always work with an informed public.

To quote post by OLSD Truth Hurts GOP above:
"...false accusations and paranoid delusions is being brought forward by Delaware Republican, Adam White". I think you need to re-read your posts before responding. I was simply reiterating your own choice of words in "paranoid delusions".

The TRUTH is you obviously dislike the GOP and paint all Republicans with a broad brush. Otherwise your posts would state "some Republicans" or even "many in the GOP". To use a name like "OLSD Success Hated by GOP" suggests you as a narrow minded person with no tolerance for differing viewpoints or perspectives.

Well now we see the true colors of “Be Reasonable” in the resorting to the one of the weakest and most dishonest, yet widely used by the Delaware and Ohio Republicans, tactic of using words taken out of context and rearranging contextual references and linkages to manufacture a so-called quote for an authoritative reference. It fails, again.

Your so-called reiteration was a direct accusation related only to mental health of Mr. White and to suggest that we can agree on something does not mean we do. Mr. White is simply a tool of the Republican leadership in Delaware County and Ohio who seek to prosecute the Republican and Bircher agendas to destroy public education by vilifying education professionals and demonizing the leadership of highly successful school districts such as the OLSD.

These Delaware and Ohio Republican tactics include racial, sexual, sexual preference, gender and religious bigotry along with all manner of disingenuous allegations of professional and personal wrongdoing against their targets. It’s ugly and has been effective for Delaware and Ohio Republicans. I don’t like or dislike the Republican and only can comment on what they do and how they do it.

A lot of the actions and efforts of Ohio and Delaware Republicans are well-documented and on the public record for all to see. If Republicans are somehow unsatisfied with their own behavior they ought to stop it, find people who can do better and work in a positive manner to further their political views. Since the Republicans enjoy unbridled power in Ohio they can only see their conduct as effective rather than a betrayal of American principles and institutional ethics and morality.

For Republicans the motivation to obtain retribution against political and personal enemies, Governor Kasich’s belligerence toward the teachers and their organizations, and the “idiot cops” and to seek to destroy public education to enable siphoning local tax dollars away from communities, like the OLSD with its successful schools, is an egregious abuse of power and the authority of the public offices the Republicans use to pursue their personal/political vendettas. It's all just about ripping-off all the money possible and diverting into GOP donors' and politicians' pockets. Corruption is endemic in Delaware and Ohio Republican politicians and their minions.

The narrow-mindedness you assign to your critics is a kind of simple political transference to avoid responsibility for the views you hold or support. It’s weak and is often an indicator, in mental health evaluations, of deep disturbances by the person who seeks to make such transference.

"The current Republican effort to wreak havoc on public schools by false accusations and paranoid delusions is being brought forward by Delaware Republican, Adam White, while he disregards the duties and responsibilities of his elected office to carry out the Ohio Republican agenda to destroy public education in this state."

This sentence above refers to the Republican effort as one operating with and using "false accusations and paranoid delusions".

[For examples see Governor Kasich's rant on "idiot cops" before the Ohio EPA, or his comments about full-page apologies from Ohio teachers]

"Adam White" is simply bringing the "Republican agenda" forward while he "disregards the duties and responsibilities of his elected office". All he is doing is a lousy job on the school board and regurgitating the hatefully bigoted agenda of the Ohio and Delaware Republicans using their vacuous methods.

It might be fruitful for you to learn to read English, the language Americans use for most discourse. You obviously do not possess the educational advantages that the OLSD provides its students when it comes to reading and reading comprehension.

You and you alone accused Mr. White of mental problems. Be a man. Own it.

So as far as the Board and Wade-o are concerned this solves the problem without any fanfare?? What about Wade-os prior conduct to find the new MS-swept under while a new policy is likely being written to govern any future s Olentangy subordinate relationships. Nice job of grandfathering, and straight out of the McFerson playbook.

"phil" and "Well Well Now"

You two need some help. Can we just call you Sybil, or Adam or Fedako

No. It wasn’t

The voices you hear in your head are not always right.

Besides I checked with Carol Anne Hamilton O'Brien Owen the current Delaware County Prosecutor and she assures me that when she worked under (Not what you are thinking) ex-prosecuting attorney, David Anthony Yost, and her husband, William John Owen II, the former first assistant Delaware County Prosecuting Attorney there was no conflict, never ever any conflict in their “legal relationships” they are just good Republicans serving for money and power in Delaware County and the state of Ohio.

Get some need help with all of your conspiracy theories and boogeymen you see everywhere. They make medicine for that, you know.

Or, If that doesn't work just try the anatomically difficult, for those of you with dwarfed genitalia, and biologically impossible act of self-impregnation

The Olentangy School System is all about political correctness and subordinate relationships are today at the very least politically incorrect. Examples of past Delaware County historical relationships of other people have absolutely no bearing. Where our kids are in involved the Superintendent is supposed to be a role model. Seeing an old guy carousing around with his subordinate or subordinates clearly sends the wrong message to our kids. At the very least an Olentangy or State Board reprimand for Wadeo is warranted.

“Ah Contrar[sic]” Au contraire mon frère.

BTW it’s “Au contraire” you self-pretentious, but ignorant-asswipe. You must be home schooled on foreign languages, certainly not from the highly ranked OLSD public schools.

You are out of your mind to suggest that any family seeks to have the superintendent of schools be any kind of role model for their children. If so, that family is morally dysfunctional, stupid and deserves to get what happens.

Now you want the schools…specifically, OLSD Superintendent Lucas, to do the parents’ job of setting moral examples as a “role model” for their kids. You are a MORON if you think that is true or a concept that works even though most of the redneck Republicans in Delaware would be better off in that scenario. Most parents realize that school superintendents are the managing leadership in the schools and hope like hell that their children don’t turn out to be like the jackoff-Republican-politicians we have in Delaware County.

You clowns want Lucas to be the moral example in the community, yet when the OLSD schools he runs kick ass in national rankings, Lucas, somehow in your pointy-empty head, gets no credit for leadership and management of the school system. Uh-hh, that’s his F-ing job and he does it well. Your moral role model job bullshit is for the families to do not public officials. Even the black dude you love to hate, President Obama, has not suggested such intrusion by government officials into our family life. Is this the new Republican paradigm for their laughable family-value horsecrap?

99.999% of the population of this county doesn’t know who the hell Lucas or any of the jerk-offs on the school board are or would recognize them anywhere. That recognition factor is lower for school kids. Lucas is not supposed to be trolling the schools anyway…that’s not his job.

Make a complaint to whomever. Name names and quit defaming OLSD’s good administrators and their employees. There is no such policy as you fantasize about in effect for the OLSD. Why don’t you produce a copy of the rule you say has been broken? What exactly does it say…not what the voices in your head say, but what is written policy for the superintendent to follow. Where's that role model crap in his contract or the job description for the OLSD superintendent?

Once again Wade-O and the OLSD presented their arrogance in their denial of a public records request by the Columbus Dispatch regarding the tentative agreement between the Board and the teacher's union. It's a repugnant display of respect for processes and the law. It's clear that Wade-O makes the rules as he goes. Similarly Wade-O invoked his stature as superintendent of this district to get the fix on a job for his subordinate employee (aka his wife) as assistant principal of the coveted Upper Arlington school district. Now Wade knew he needed to get her out of Olentangy schools to quickly avert the possibility of answering questions of the clear conflict of interest and violation of the law. From the alleged subordinate relationship with an employee to denying an obvious public record to the public is further proof of his arrogance and the Board's ignorance. Further arrogance was exhibited by Wade-O's alleged call to UA to get his subordinate employee (his wife) the job as assistant principal of the high school to get her out of the. Ross fire of their inappropriate relationship. Explain yourself Wade. This isn't your country bumpkin school you manipulated as teacher, coach, and administrator. one thing is for sure, her acceptance of a position in another district and your eagerness to get her that position provides culpability for a bona fide conflict of interest regarding your relationship with a subordinate.

Let me guess, White is to blame for all of this?

The OLSB has a history of sliding controversial personnel situations under the table. The "nationwide" Board members apparently believe that it is their mission to present a never never land isn't life just great picture for the voters. There are so many issues that have been hidden not the least of which is the latest flagrant attempt to sweep under the table Superintendent Wade-o Luco's romantic misbehavior and collusion with other suburban districts to preserve his own selfish financial objectives.

The conspiracy theories, allegation or unspecified wrong doing are goofy crazy talk by the White John Birchers who despise public education.

It’s too bad for White and his conspiracy theorist that the public education provided by the OLSD is some of the best in the country. Nothing White and his allies have alleged in their online character assassination has been shown to be real, an actual violation of a written OLSD policy, or anything with any substance. White seems to be taking the “Big Lie” theory of propaganda.

This does sound familiar in Republican propaganda nationally and In Ohio and Delaware County.

"He has a matchless instinct for taking advantage of every breeze to raise a political whirlwind. No official scandal was so petty that he could not magnify it into high treason; he could ferret out the most deviously [unreadable] corruption in high places and plaster the town with the bad news."

“His primary rules were: never allow the public to cool off; never admit a fault or wrong; never concede that there may be some good in your enemy; never leave room for alternatives; never accept blame; concentrate on one enemy at a time and blame him for everything that goes wrong; people will believe a big lie sooner than a little one; and if you repeat it frequently enough people will sooner or later believe it”
(This stuff failed in Europe once before ca. 1933-1946)

More importantly all of the crap dumped on this blog defaming Lucas, the OLSD board and administrators has not been shown to affect in any way the superior performance of the OLSD schools that got them national recognition for excellence.

White ran for OLSD school board promising three simple things:
“Adam J. White for Olentangy School Board
-Cut Taxes
-Curb Spending
-Construct a Better Curriculum”

So far White is a MASSIVE FAILURE and White has not accomplished even one thing he promised in his dishonest campaign.

Is Adam White the liar telling the “Big Lie (at least in his small mind it’s big) in all of this?

Please consult with Stacy Dunbar on the appropriateness of subordinate relationships in the workplace.(She knows from prior employment history) Just because it is not in the contract doesn't mean it is ok to troll the workplace as a superior to find a new wife!! What Wade allegedly did was inappropriate by all means and the School Board elected to ignore the facts even thought they knew about the situation when they renewed his five year contract!!!.Shame on the Board they gave up political correctness and ethics to save his job. Funny how the progressives on the board gave up their moral obligations.

Ms. Dunbar’s employment history and experience do not in any way constitute official OLSD written policy as it pertains to your allegations in your imaginary world. For all we know she could have worked for the CIA and perfected the torture technique of “water-boarding”, etc. and that doesn’t make those things OLSD policy or procedure.

Your wrong-headed premise,“Just because it is not in the contract”, makes what you allege precisely permissible since there is no prohibition against OLSD employees, even the superintendent, dating each other r or having romantic relationships that, in some instances, result in the couple getting married.

The OLSD school board is required to follow the local, state and federal laws and the rules that they and previous OLSD boards enacted. Absent a valid finding for discriminatory conduct against him and without any written prohibition on the actions you allege the superintendent did…you got nuthin!

Political correctness is a meaningless concept to use to make false allegations based on your politics. Other people‘s politics may have them find your specious allegations perfectly OK as is (was) the situation in the Delaware County Prosecuting Attorney’s office.

Your wild and crazy defamation of the OLSD superintendent, members of the administrative staff and board members has the stench of a Henthorn-O’Brien attack. What?... does Kenny O want to sell some land to the OLSD or is this a confederation of the Republican John Birchers in Delaware County to destroy one of the best school systems in the nation?

Let’s ask Mr. White why he has not reduced taxes, cut spending or improved the curriculum as he promised in his campaign. Did he lie to the voters? This attack on the OLSD seems as untruthful as White’s broken campaign promises. That’s the moral failure…being a worthless dishonest politician who breaks campaign promises.
