JobsOhio is just another way for K-sick to take credit for something that he really isn't doing. Jobs will come back regardless. Problem is, they won't be good paying jobs that will provide a decent living wage - with benefits.

Voting Machine Controversy
by Julie Carr Smyth

COLUMBUS - The head of a company vying to sell voting machines in Ohio told Republicans in a recent fund-raising letter that he is "committed to helping Ohio deliver its electoral votes to the president next year."

The Aug. 14 letter from Walden O'Dell, chief executive of Diebold Inc.- who has become active in the re-election effort of President Bush - prompted Democrats this week to question the propriety of allowing O'Dell's company to calculate votes in the 2004 presidential election.

O'Dell attended a strategy pow-wow with wealthy Bush benefactors - known as Rangers and Pioneers - at the president's Crawford, Texas, ranch earlier this month. The next week, he penned invitations to a $1,000-a-plate fund-raiser to benefit the Ohio Republican Party's federal campaign fund - partially benefiting Bush - at his mansion in the Columbus suburb of Upper Arlington.

They may no own the voting machine division any longer but this company is full of right wing hacks.

Hey, Marysville, don't you have some fields to plow or a chicken to choke? Take off your rose-colored glasses, step into the 21st century and take a look around. America has become the elderly uncle the family tolerates because he is still somewhat useful.

Diebold is the company that rigged the voting machines to allow Bush to win. So I guess all this "business" that Kassie will be bringing to Ohio are their Republican cronies. That means low wages, poor conditions and no benefits.

And which of you critics of our current administration has the right answer then? Which of you are running for office in 2014? Who among you knows how to bring jobs to Ohio or keep jobs in Ohio when other states are offering companies better incentives to move there? I'm certainly not a fan of allowing companies to exist without paying taxes or other incentives that are often offered, but that is how the game is played, and if you actually worked in this area, you'd understand that. The game that is being played sucks, but if you don't play, you have no shot of winning. Winning means your neighbor keeps his job. What you're missing about a Diebold staying in Ohio is that other companies who work with, supply or are supplied by Diebold also stay OR move more jobs here. It really isn't just 2000 jobs, it's many more that are not immediately captured when counting just that one company. Former administrations have done great damage to Ohio's appeal for businesses. At least he's trying something. Anyone remember NCR? How about any of the many other companies that have left the Dayton area, for example? If you don't like what our current administration is doing then either run against them in 4 years, truly educate yourself on why they are doing what they are doing or shut up and get out of the way. Something is always better than nothing and you have to play the game other states are playing or this state won't be home to any jobs other than bar tender.

Here's a thought; let them all leave Ohio. There will be the smart ones that will stay, pay taxes, enjoy little competition(if any), and make loads of money as the only game in town. We all need more Mom and Pop businesses anyhow. They always gave better service than any "big box" store. Big business always drives out small business because corporate greed is what drives big box stores. Destroy the competition, more money for them. then.
