IAFF Politics: Palin With A Pecker

Entry Img

Schaitberger Stalls Over a Racist Buffoon Here’s former GOP vice-presidential candidate and Alaska governor/quitter Sarah Palin on Paul Revere, “He who warned, uh, the British that they weren’t gonna be takin’ away our arms, uh, by ringing those bells, and um, makin’ sure as he’s riding his horse through town to send those warning shots […]

Schaitberger MDA Scandal Set to Go to IAFF Convention

Entry Img

“Stop Ripping Off Sick Kids” Resolution At least one IAFF local is repulsed enough by Schaitberger’s extorting $1,400,000 from kids with an often fatal illness that they have introduced a convention resolution to stop him from doing it. The resolution was apparently emailed in with a hard copy to follow leaving Schaitberger a precious few […]

War: Flag(s), Raised

Entry Img

Wrong Guy, But It Doesn’t Matter The U.S. Marine Corps this week announced that the identification of John Bradley, a heretofore Iwo Jima flag raiser was incorrect and that the actual soldier was Private First Class Harold Schultz.

Department of Distraction: “Taking Care of Business”

Entry Img

A Wee Bit of Political Theater Here we are in the season of presidential conventions. In time past the IAFF has been fully geared up, focused on supporting a candidate who can be depended upon to both care for and about working Americans and union members.

The President, the City and the War The museum shop at the National Archives has to be just about the best in a city with some pretty cool ones. They seem to have something for everyone. There with a group of eighth-graders recently, I made an impulsive purchase of a book because it was about […]

IAFF & MDA: Where’s “Edzo”?

Entry Img

Run Silent, Run Deep It has been indisputably confirmed that the IAFF under Harold Schaitberger rips off sick kids to the tune of $1,400,000 each year. That’s just about a nickel of every dollar brother and sister firefighters and paramedics collect from the public. Certainly a sobering thought when you stand out there with a […]

IAFF: Missing In Action

Entry Img

Afraid of What? The IAFF is making organizational history of the worst kind as Schaitberger and his do-nothing board piss their figurative pants over who to endorse for US president. With each passing week we become ever more irrelevant as the opportunity to really make a difference to a candidate slips from our grasp. Thanks […]

Orlando: A Message From God?

Entry Img

Will the Preachers Please Advise? Several clergy, most notably Roger Jimenez of Sacramento, California, have invoked the Holy Bible effectively calling the murder of dozens of people at an Orlando night club an act of God. He says, “homosexuals are pedophiles” and their sin is “worthy of death”, essentially divine retribution. Jimenez proves that the […]

IAFF: Trouble in Ontario

Entry Img

Recent comments hint that all is not “sweetness and light” at the Ontario (Canada) Professional Firefighters Association (OPFFA). The OPFFA apparently sued two members over their private work on behalf of workers comp claimants only to be counter-sued for $12m. Ellard Beaven Writes: “…How did the OPFFA enter into a lawsuit against Paul and Colin […]
