Your use of "might of" is incorrect. The correct word is "might've" which is short for "might have" and sounds the same as "might of".

Hmmm...not to attractive, huh? Let me see if I can find our options. But we can keep the same tag for life, just take it with you when you sell or trade your vehicle.

Ted's beard designed the Farmville plate.
As much as I would like to make fun of Ted, I can't. I got dragged to a Democrat fundraiser once and I actually met and talked at length with him.

He is a very nice guy.

I tend to vote Republican, but on a personal level consider most of the Republicans I meet to be tools. I tend to like the Democrats better on a personal level.

I think they had the right idea, it just doesn't look very good when attached to a vehicle. Gov. Ted Strickland's wife (D) was in charge of plate design.

As I said in the previous post, Ted Strickland is a very nice man. His background was congressman, Methodist minister, and has a doctorate in psychology. He really has a lot of compassion for the poor people and the dysfunction which predominates the Appalachian portions of Ohio.

But being nice doesn't necessarily make you a good governor. He wasn't tough enough to make the decisions that had to be made when we hit our economic wall, so he lost reelection.

Had we been in good economic times, he would have been very popular. In fact, his first two years he could do nothing wrong. He had Reaganesque popularity.

Again, very nice man.

O.K. Bob, try this

www.dmv.de.gov/vehicle_services/reg/ve_sp_t

I have the farm presevation one on my white car. On the jeep and buick I have low numbers, so they are black w/white numbers. But the state gives you the tag in the standard dark blue w/yellow to carry in your truck. Free. Registration is $20. per year. Depending on the year of your car, you don't have to go for up to 4 years, and the state has it's own inspection lanes you drive through and it's so easy and no mechanic to 'get you' a for $40 -$200 repair.

If they do find something wrong, they send you on through the rest of the inspection and you just have to go to a special lane when you come back with the one repair made. Like my horn didn't work one time. I don't drive with my horn, so I had no idea.

Union shill, tax raiser, slow train builder, and probably in the closet.

I really regret supporting him. But the NRA endorsement means a lot.

Because PO14 ain't getting it, and Kasich will.

Damn! That takes you to a 'page not available', but gives you an option to go to DMV and from there just type in 'plates' at the search cue and you can look at all of them.

I don't -- especially having met him.

His first two years were the best of practically any Governor. The man was hitting all the right notes until the economy imploded.

Every now and then you need someone who understands what the poor are going through and at least wants to see if he can help them. Ted's a good man.

They're getting too cute with the plates these days. There is something to be said about the simplicity of the older designs. I always liked other state's plates because they used colored backgrounds whereas ours have mostly been white from about 1974 through about 1991.

My favorite old school plates were these:

and especially this one:

http://img2.etsystatic.com/006/0/5908962/il_5...

They finally started adding designs with this one:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:1991_Ohio_L...

This is the Bicenentennial Plate:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:2003_OH_pas...

But this one is still the best looking:

"Mitt Romney has so little economic patriotism that even his money needs a passport. It summers on the beaches of the Cayman Islands and winters on the slopes of the Swiss Alps. In Matthew, chapter 6, verse 21, the scriptures teach us that where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. My friends, any man who aspires to be our president should keep both his treasure and his heart in the United States of America. And itís well past time for Mitt Romney to come clean with the American people."

It is BS. All through the campaign season I tried to explain overseas accounts. If you're doing business in another Country, you need to have an account there. Everything gets converted back to US $ and reported on your US tax return. Been doing it for the boss for years and years.

Unless you're a criminal. Then you don't file a tax return anyway.

In fairness to Ted, he's a minister and psychologist. That was probably consistent his level of knowledge when it comes to these matters.

Yeah, he doesn't care about the poor, he existed so the public sector unions could continue the racket.
