Ohio is anything but a blue state, they just didn't warm up to Romney fast enough. I think they would have in time, because Ohio loves RINO's, especially competent ones. Just not enough time and not the best campaign themes.
My mistake. So glad you still stand tall for your families.

The new Democrat and new Republican on the Ohio Supreme court might be ok but the ones that did not get replaced this past election have a problem with evidence and citizens rights to confront accusers and citizens rigjt to public records. After all of the last batch of justices only out.gping Robert Cupp decented on cops guessing your speed. The out going democrat Yvette Brown waa not on the bench for that decision so not sure her stance. Thus the Ohio Supreme Court can't be trusted. After all someone with a PS License should not need a total station or even a compass and chain they should be allowed guess since they have had training.

Let me fill you in on a little secret. Taxes have been around for 5,000 years. That will not change. Sure things can be cut - military, social programs, education. Lets do it.
But to equate taxes and slavery is way out of line. You do not know what slavery is. Try spending 13 months in a "re-education camp" in southeast Asia in a room with 20 of your closest friends and being asked to dig tunnels and haul carts for 15 hours a day. That's slavery. Every April 15th for the last 41 years, I write checks with a smile on my face.
Nice word. Gobsheen. Was that the Glenn Beck word of the day? Couldn't jam the word caliphate into your rant?
That was a whole lotta unrelated nothin' just to prove you're a blithering idiot who "for the last 41 years" has unquestioningly written checks to the IRS "with a smile on [your] face."

You're the reason our nation is bankrupt.

I think public employees work much lsee than even this study shows. Partially due to specialization. An employee in the public sector seldom does anything outside of their "classification" even if there's obvious other work that needs to be done ("not my job" famous photo here: http://www.dailyhaha.com/_pics/not-my-job1.ht... ).

A friend of mine who is a network administrator for ODOT tells me that he averages about one and a half hours of "actual work" per day. The rest of the time is spent waiting for something to break that he can fix. The union has an effect on this too. If my network administrator friend were to, say, mop up spilled coffee from the floor, the union would complain that he's screwing a building maintenance worker out of a job.

Another part of it is due to a profit. Private companies would lose money if they paid a lot of people to "not work". There is no such motive in government. In fact, they have a motive to spend every cent they are allotted. If they don't, they likely won't be budgeted as much next year.

Ohioans need to

GOOGLE: CALIF TEACHERS UNION VIDEO

This is how Blue State Public Schools indoctrinate rather than educate. How could ANY parent raise their children in a LoserCrat Blue State?

Google it and weep for America. How sad for our children. How sad for us all.

Now that Ohio is a Blue State beware.
The Democrat on Democrat extortion perpetrated on Businesses and those working in the private sector (including Union members who work for private businesses) by elected Democrats can be devastating. The more Blue the State the more apt the elected Democrats are to sell every one and everything out in return for Public Employee Union campaign support.
Ohio is a red state with five large blue counties capable of stealing a presidential election. State, county and municipal governments are all overwhelmingly Red in Ohio.

There is some good news today:

Governor: Bill Will Be Introduced To Make Michigan 24th Right-To-Work State
'When it arrives on my desk, I plan on signing it'
By Jack Spencer and Jarrett Skorup

Michigan Governor Rick Snyder said today that a bill will be introduced that would make Michigan the nation's 24th right-to-work state.

"When it arrives on my desk, I plan on signing it," he said.

In a press conference with the House and Senate Majority leaders and three union members, the Governor suggested that a bill would be introduced today.

Under the legislation, employees would only pay union representation fees (also called "agency fees") if they chose to do so. Federal law prohibits workers from being required to be union members and pay union dues as a condition of employment. However, unless a state has a right-to-work law, employees in companies where a union already exists are forced to pay union fees if they don't pay the dues. Typically, the fees are nearly as costly as the dues.

Where do you see that in my post? I'm stating facts. 72 Ohio counties voted for Romney. The legislature and Governor are Republican. This is a red state with a few densely packed blue islands.

If the Appalachian counties were as red as the flatland counties of the Till Plains, this would be a red state.
I'm not familiar with the party affiliations of the neighboring counties, but in our county there seems to be an agreement to divvy up the offices such that many times a person runs unopposed.
(3 R commissioners, 5 R row offices 3 D row offices, 4 judges evenly split)
If an officeholder isn't defeated after their first term, they will hold the job til they die or retire.
I'm actually impressed that 22 of 32 Ohio Appalachian counties went red in November.

And right on cue, the leftist thuggies do their dance:

Push for right-to-work ignites Michigan protests; police use pepper spray at state Capitol

By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, December 6, 4:21 PM

LANSING, Mich.— Police used pepper spray Thursday to subdue protesters trying to rush the Michigan Senate chamber after Gov. Rick Snyder and other Republican leaders announced they would press for quick approval of right-to-work legislation limiting union powers.

Eight people were arrested for resisting and obstructing when they tried to push past two troopers guarding the Senate door, state police Inspector Gene Adamczyk said. The Capitol was closed because of safety concerns, and Adamczyk said Thursday afternoon he wasn’t sure when it would reopen.

In 2012 Mitt got everything below Mahoning County, except Suddes-land.
If counting by Appalachian Regional Commission, the Occupier won only 4 counties (Ashtabula, Trumbull, Mahoning, Suddes)
But regardless, Sherrod did win a few more Appalachian counties and Strickland nearly swept them in 2010 (holdover loyalty from Kasich's days in Congress put him over the top in the C-bus region)
I doubt the Preacher runs again, but Tim Ryan has an NRA A rating, though I don't see him beating Kasich, he's sat in a safe seat for more than a decade.
Todd Akin had a similar profile.

If Michigan becomes a right to work state, you'll see their standard of living and wages drop faster than a Main st. ho's jeans! Just look at Mississippi.
Whites will have no choice but to move next to Tyron and them in the hood.

Why? Those 22 have the highest percentages of uneducated residents in the State which is what it takes to vote Red.... evidence yourself.
