Why is it CNN and pMSNBC can't pry their constituents away from MTV and BET stations to watch????
There are many possible explanations. Here are two:

The world got complicated. Most folks can't understand the math and science that underlies much of 21st Century life. So, instead of explaining, try to entertain. If you must deal with complicated issues, it's best to reduce them to "easy to remember" slogans.

As an alternative explanation, folks are still smart, but they are terribly distracted by the many choices of modern life, and have very limited attention spans.

Here's an interesting take on what's going on, and where we are heading. It's the 2006 feature film "Idiocracy" by Mike Judge. If you haven't seen it you should.(Not because it will make you smarter, but because it's very entertaining!) Watch it for free: http://viooz.co/movies/2425-idiocracy-2006.ht...

In keeping with general topic I think there are several people, men and women, who are capable of being darn good governors....Problem is MONEY! Not a Kasich fan at all but he basically outspent Strickland....and no matter who goes up against him this time around, be ready to deal with the Cook brothers, FOX news, and a bunch of other entities not even in Ohio. All about the BENS!!

Governor Kasich is the best thing since Voinovich. He erased an 8 billion deficit, managed to bring in new businesses and keep some of the businesses planning to leave Ohio in Ohio, and for most of his first term, our unemployment rate was 1% lower than the national unemployment rate.

The problem is NOT money itself. It is the heart, intent, morals & ethics of people that have & or do NOT have it.
Have you ever realized that programs started by private enterprise stay stable & long term especially when compared to government programs? Not that some privately started programs don't have some other source of funding.
How about the Noble Prize, Harvard, Carnagie Hall, Universities of Penn & Virginia, zoos & museums around the country etc.
Compare that to funding for highway infrastructures, Social (in)Security that OUR elected reps have invaded, then there's the benefits that those same reps receive that far exceed what the average worker/taxpayer gets. Then there's the fact that our so called reps are even waived from Obama Care. WHY? Because their plans makes Obama Care look like the mess that it is.
That is one example of many of the problem NOT being the Bennies, it's certain people.

Voinovich did the same as Kasich not only with Ohio, but Cleveland as well.

I never liked the liberal side of him, but he is a fiscal conservative.

After he left office, we went from being in debt to a million dollar rainy day fund. The best move I remember is when he led legislation prohibiting prisoners from suing the state. He couldn't stop the lawsuits, but what he did do was take state funding away so they had no money for legal fees.

If you were a prisoner and wanted to sue the state..... fine, but pay for your own lawyers.

Voinovich was also responsible for getting rid of State Stores. Before Voinovich, the only place to purchase alcohol in the state (besides beer and wine) was the State Stores. It was an expense to the state which we didn't need and you couldn't bust kids buying booze. The city or state wouldn't fine themselves.

The state took a wrong turn with Taft and Strckland; Taft (the RINO) being the worst.

When signed in, my posts would not appear. I mean, I would post a reply and it would show up as normal, but only I could see them; nobody else.

After a while I got suspicious because nobody was replying to my posts, and I know the people that usually do. Also, after I made a post and went back to the Topic menu, it didn't show I was the last poster to the forum. So I knew something was wrong. So when I signed out and went back to the topics I was posting to, none of my posts where there. So I signed back in again, and there they were, right in front of me.

I contacted Topix, but as expected,no reply. I went to the FAQ's and it had nothing there about the problem I was experiencing.

Now the only way for people other than myself to see my posts are to post them not signed in. If I'm signed in, only I will see my replies.

Above we see your common low information voter.

"Cook Brothers"

"FOX News"

Note, the actual name is Koch (pronouced like Coke) Brothers, who live in Kansas

http://www.opensecrets.org/news/2010/09/opens...

Anyone who wants Koch cash out of the system, should complain about George Soros as well.

Now, I don't like the Koch Brothers either, because they want amnesty for illegals.

There are your words, and then there are these things known as facts. Don't confuse the two. Besides, GW Bush suggested amnesty for illegals years ago.

Anyone notice that of the three links in post #19715, 1 is a 'survey' from a college that Forbes ranks # 585th out of 650 colleges? That barely makes the 10th percentile. The other two links are opinion pieces based on such a mediocre work by a bottom dwelling school.
AND these links are posed as "facts" by the poster.

Most of us informed people are aware of that, it's why we don't like Bush much either.
