WE are in WORSE shape than a mere depression.

We are currently under a soft dictatorship. Look closely. Your constitution doesn't matter anymore.

If you keep up with the news, you will see that your rights are being taken away one by one.

Doubt the dictatorship idea? What ELSE are we to surmise when the president says if 'congress doesn't act; I will.'

The United States isn't in a depression, we're in a Plutocracy bolstered by Croney Capitalism. Take a look at the latest TED which doesn't hang the blame on a single President, but looks at the impacts of the market on the middle and lower classes.

What do the words Plutocracy or Croney Capitalsm have to do with Socialism? When our Founding Fathers were forced to obey the king and taxed without representation, they set about to create a nation based on liberty and justice for all. Cultural limitations prohibited them from including slaves and women, but their vision of equal representation under the law has ushered in a global democratic transformation.

While the power and wealth continue to pool at the top, there are many examples, even in Northeast Ohio that show how local government can work with local businesses and universities to build the necessary infrastructure and educational resources for a metropolitan area to compete in the global market.

Your statement about Socialsim decries an unhealthy dependency on Corporate Media and the marketing slogans used by think tanks to divide and conquer our nation.

DEPRESSION? Why is this guy still around?

Clearcreek administrator retiring after 35 years

DDN -- CLEARCREEK TWP., Warren County — Township Administrator Dennis Pickett is expected to announce his retirement Wednesday after 35 years in public administration.

Pickett, 57, said he was retiring, effective July 31, 2012.“It’s just time,” he said.

Pickett, administrator in Clearcreek Twp. since November 1985, also worked as administrative assistant in Franklin Twp.“I certainly will miss him. He’s been good for Clearcreek Twp.,” said Ed Wade, chairman of the township trustees.

In his time with the township, Pickett has seen the community and staff grow, and the government move from a small office to a sprawling government center.

However, he clashed with Linda Oda, the fiscal officer elected in 2007, prompting a review last year by the trustees. Also last year, Trustee Cathy Anspach sought discipline against Pickett for failing to advise township officials that former trustee Dr. Greg McDonald, a local dentist, had been receiving health insurance for himself and his wife that was subsidized through funds set aside for unemployed workers.

On Tuesday Anspach said their dispute was in the past.

“I think he’s just burned out on the job,” she said.

Depression you say -- "Clearcreek trustee remains under ethics review"

COLUMBUS — An ethics review involving Clearcreek Twp. Trustee Ed Wade continues despite a special prosecutor’s recommendation against pursuing criminal charges, the chief investigative attorney for the Ohio Ethics Commission.

“At this point, it’s still ongoing,” ethics attorney Paul Nick said. For more than a year, the state ethics commission has been reviewing whether Wade’s insurance agency’s administration of the township government’s health insurance claims violated state law.

State auditors made findings against Wade in connection with about $1.2 million in health insurance coverage provided to the township government administered by Wade’s agency.

Wade, a trustee since 1977, was re-elected in November.

No doubt. Thankfully my big words came from a source with actual experience in Washington. Check out the videos from the Brookings Institute for a true vision of a smaller government built from the ground up.

If you lived comfortably with the D.C. herd, you and your spouse depending on or working with government, living in a nice suburban Maryland or Virginia house, like all of your friends and neighbors, government being your employer and master and savior, all of you doing and sharing the same behavior, all of you braggin' and ignorin' the outsider naggin' while you defend and protect and circle your gravy-train wagons: Ohio people here would be the ones who were abnormal and queer and weird. Welfare State, Army, Air Force, State Department, EPA, CIA, FBI, NSA or Navy, they all join together to fight for their gravy. To these thieves, to shut down the government is beyond belief. They don't give a damn about NAVISTAR jobs, unless they no longer have them to rob.

Let's get a few things straight. One, there are people who live in the Maryland and Virginia area that DO really work for a living and I would not call THEM "gravy train" sops. The army and the airforce and some other "government" institutions DO actually serve a valuable purpose for this nation. That they are being misused and abused is the real point. Make no mistake and you'll learn something. The military and the FBI are PAWNS, yes you read it correctly, PAWNs for the government. This is like chastising the lowly clerk at the department store for upper management policies.

I agree that the government in certain areas is no better than a thief.

The EPA started out as a good thing, unless you like nonpotable water, filthy air and contaminated earth. What it has BECOME is a monstrosity!! If it had only stuck to REAL SCIENCE, and those three catagories, things would have been fine, and constitutional under the 'general welfare' of the state line. But no, they are now armed, can take property away from you, hassle you, determine what kind of toilet and tissue you can use, what kind of lightbulb you may use, how your appliances work, the amount of energy you use and yes what your "carbon footprint", whatever the hell THAT is, will be. THAT has gone TOO FAR and needs to be reigned in. Did you know they almost banned water? No joke! Oh, that evil dihydrogen monoxide; Think about it---H2O

And we all know about the evil NSA spying on people thanks to a courageous young man named Edward Snowden.(amoungst others)

By the way, I might also add, what would you Ohioans DO without WPAFB in your area? Since you have managed to chase business with jobs OUT. I used to LIVE in Ohio so you're not telling me anything new. It started back in the 70's to my knowledge. "Progressives" ruin whatever they touch.

Guess it depends on several factors, at least these, what kind of educational background you have, if there are any jobs available for that background, where you live and in some cases WHO you are in some areas. In some areas immigrants are considered more noble and hard working than the average citizen.

There is a disparity in benefits for each group. If you have an average college education, coming from the average public school, you are not likely to be able to find work because these public institutions, depending on the ones, do not teach you what you NEED to get work afterwards, though they take your money.

In which case, if you graduate from any of those institutions the best you can hope for is a part time service job and still living with your parents. That often means that YOU cannot really get on with your life. You can't strike out on your own, you can't marry, have your own family and your own place. That is true not only in Dayton, but many other places as well.

At least in our area of Virginia, it is not uncommon for 2 families at least to be sharing a single family home of four bedrooms. Not a lot of room for kids unless you're packed. Also part time jobs are becoming the norm due to various factors like Obamacare, additional taxes and stifling regulations. The business climate is NOT what it used to be.

Hey, just an off the wall comment.
Colorado got away with RECALLING two of their important government officials. Can Ohio do it?
Can WE do it? I wonder how many states can do this.

Well, just think of the CHANGE that could occur if
California could recall Diane Feinstein and Nancy Pelosi. Think of what could occur if Arizona would recall McCain, Nevada recalled Harry Reid.. all these government officials that were causing the rest of us terrible heartburn.

Some of us in Virginia and in other states are aware of the political games these CAREER politicians play in Washington, D.C. WITH EDICTS THAT AFFECT OUR LIVES! THESE are the people that are making policies that affect our economy and our lives. It's time to GET RID OF THEM; get them out of office.

We have a president that uses our federal constitution as something to blow his nose on, and dispose of; we have conniving politicians who want to silence anyone who disagrees with them, take away our rights under the constitution, tell us that the way out of debt is to spend more, tell us that the work we do for our businesses, we didn't really do. They make increasing regulations on WHAT we do and if we DON'T do it, they either TAX us, ARREST us, or if your are a dissenting politician, DISGRACE US.

Yes! We ARE on to your games and we're SICK of them! Don't sit down an LET them.

Too many times I hear from people that they don't have TIME to keep track of politics, that is what their so called leaders do in office. HEY, what they do DOES affect you and me. It is VITAL that we keep as best track as we can and make INFORMED voting decisions, even if it comes to MAKE SURE THE VOTE IS SECURE!
