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 […]

IAFF Corruption: MDA Fraud Revealed

Entry Img

Gorman Confirms Skimming and Worse Last year, I wrote how the IAFF was skimming a nickel on a dollar it collected during the annual fill-the-boot campaign taking in over a $1,000,000 it had absolutely no right to. My information was dismissed then as speculative and lacking in proof. Not any more. The reality is actually […]

Act of Honor: Flags

Entry Img

The Cemetery, final resting place for tens-of-thousands who died in service to America, is arresting in its beauty. Away from the Tomb and the Amphitheater, the tall trees quietly and gracefully cast swaying shadows on markers of memory, an invitation to reflect on unknown acts of valor. Those valorous acts, from battles past, complete with […]
