Elizabeth Thomas Missing

Fifteen year old Elizabeth Thomas was last seen in Columbia, Tennessee, in the company of a teacher at her school, a fifty year old man by the name of Tad Cummins. Now there is an active Amber Alert. It seems that Mr. Cummins planned this disappearance. He researched possible methods the police could use to track him, and he also researched the possibility of marrying someone as young as Elizabeth. Something he forgot is that he is already married, and in America, one may marry as many times as one wishes, but one must get divorced between nuptials.

Below are pictures of Elizabeth, Cummins, and the vehicle Cummins used when he was last seen. There is also a number for anyone with information to call. Please, if you know anything or have seen either Cummins or Elizabeth Thomas, call law enforcement.

Hanging In Effigy

Once upon a time, in January of 2012, to be exact, the Republican house speaker in Kansas, Mike O'Neal, emailed a "prayer" for then president, Barack Obama. The text from the the bible, Psalm 109, was, "let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow." He thought everyone should pray this prayer for America's President. There were no accusations of violent threats, even though this is clearly a threat of murder. President Obama was a gentleman about it, and ignored Mr. O'Neal's stupidity and rudeness.

Fast forward to March of 2017. Racist America has elected Donald Trump to be president, and Donald Trump does nothing but sign racist edicts, such as his two failed travel bans, and tweet at America on Twitter at 3:00 every morning, sharing everything from his silly-assed feelings to national secrets. In response to all this, musician and singer, Snoop Doggy Dogg, created a video in which he shoots a very trumpesque clown, which he calls "Ronald Klump." 



Donald Trump has complained about this video, saying, "Can you imagine what the outcry would be if Snoop Dog, failing career and all, had aimed and fired the gun at President Obama? Jail time!" Seriously? After the actual death threat to President Obama that was written and emailed by Mike O'Neal, in Kansas, brought no consequences at all, Trump really thinks that the exercise of first amendment rights and satire would bring jail time to someone else, if President Obama was the target? Snoop Dogg's video is the equivalent of hanging in effigy, which, along with flag burning, silly cartoon drawings, and photo shopped pictures of elected officials, is protected speech. Trump needs to understand that he is in America, and he needs to understand that the Constitution protects all Americans. After he begins to understand those two things, he needs to grow up.

Donald Trump's Travel Ban Cut Off Again

Donald Trump still must obey the law, especially the Constitution. He tried, once again, to restrict any immigration or visitation from Yemen, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Iran, and Syria. Because of his past rhetoric, proclaiming great hate for Islam and Muslims, Judge Derrick Watson of the United States District Court in Hawaii found that there is a very strong chance that Trump is discriminating against others for religious reasons. Now there is a new restraining order on the new travel ban.


Instead of studying constitutional law, Trump held a rally in Nashville, Tennessee today, during which he complained bitterly and disrespectfully about the court's decision. It seems that instead of truly representing America and America's constitution, Donald Trump can only appeal to the baser emotions of the less educated and less loyal among us.

More Kansas Track Coach Shenanigans

Todd Kaiser, a former high school track coach in Great Bend, Kansas, has been charged in district court with sexual exploitation of a minor. He was arrested in June of 2016, and he made his first appearance in court on March 6. Kaiser had worked for USD 428, as the physical education teacher at Eisenhower Elementary and as the head coach for Great Bend cross country and track teams.


Another incident that took place during 2016 in Great Bend, Kansas, involving the same school district, was a school bus where some unsupervised teenagers who had been taught, by adults in their lives, to sexually assault younger children. A sixteen year old young man and a seventeen year old young man have each been convicted of the sexual battery of a fourteen year old child on a school bus after an event for the swim team.

The obvious questions here concern the effectiveness of the adult supervision during sporting events in Kansas public schools, and how much contact these children had with this Coach Kaiser before this happened. Marshall County, Kansas, allows track coaches to abandon children alongside the highways and forget about them.

Former Marysville Kansas Teacher Guilty

In  November of 2016, yours truly wrote this, for another publication, about a former Marysville, Kansas public school teacher who moved to the Wichita area and got arrested in Butler County, Kansas for sexual abuse of a child. 


 "A brilliant special education teacher and basketball coach by the name of Mike Melcher has been arrested in Butler County, Kansas for the electronic solicitation of a child under the age of fourteen, and for inappropriate physical contact with a child under the age of fourteen. Mr. Melcher was a special education teacher and basketball coach in Marysville, Kansas, from 2008 to 2014. His first appearance in court was November 28.

This is not the first time Kansas has run into problems through the lack of background checks for teachers. Since 2002, Kansas has required criminal background checks for teachers, but any teacher who was hired before 2002 is not required to undergo a background check. This effectively "grandfathers" any and all teachers with criminal records who were hired before 2002. According to KSN, a teacher named Mike Burgan in St. Johns, Kansas, who taught for USD 350, was found to have a criminal record for indecent solicitation of a child, dating back to 1988. It was determined that Mr. Burgan had lied, numerous times, to the school board and the Kansas Department of Education. Can anyone see how easy it is to teach in public schools in Kansas with a criminal record?

The other problem which afflicts Kansas is cronyism and cover-up. How many child predators have enjoyed lengthy criminal careers because others have failed to report crime? The fallout from Mr. Melcher's arrest and subsequent court dates will hopefully yield more information concerning background check procedures for the El Dorado School District and the Marysville School District."

There is now an update. Mike  Melcher entered a guilty plea. He will be sentenced in May. While he has been on leave from his teaching position, he was still listed, on Monday, March 6, as an employee of the El Dorado school system. Hopefully, there will be no efforts among school boards in the state of Kansas to rehire him, because he has lived in Kansas all his life and has a lot of friends in Kansas.
