Thus the destruction of Ohio begins and the mass exodus of people to other parts of the country increases. Soon Ohio will only be populated with white trash, morons and loser Tea Baggers. It will be a scene similar to that of the polygamist compounds seen out west.

White men in charge, women who know their place, poor education, poor health care, poor nutrition and Kasich will be the prophet.

"THE BUDGET" You can download all 774 pages of the Blue Book and the other thick books that accompany it from the State web sites. I did. Interesting reading. You should take the time and educate yourself.

Wow, does this mean that King Kasich stood in front of the TV monitors and LIED to Ohioians about his budget to increase school funding
K-12? No, not our King he would never LIE to us. I remember once when a King, I mean "deciderer" (his word not mine, LOL) stood in front of a TV monitor and lied to Americans about Weapons of Mass Destruction. Many years later, still in the war and losing billions of dollars a month that is crippling our country. Goodbye Ohio, I loved you. Hello to King Kasich and his Weapons of Mass Destruction.

Readers should clearly understand one thing. At least $2 billion of this budget hole was created by former Governor Taft's irresponsible and cowardly decision to slash taxes when he did "tax reform" -- and Kasich's decision to let those cuts stand. See "States' Tax Cut Fervor Helps Feed Deficits" in today's paper, and a recent Joe Hallett column.

Editorial Editor Glenn Sheller, Ben Marrison, Hallett himself, as well as the owner of this ugly, right-wing tilting paper share some of the blame. I vividly recall the"rah rah rah" editorial Sheller ran when Taft's reform package needlessly and gratuitously slashed revenues the state needed.(Responsible families have rainy day funds. So do responsible states.) The Dispatch editorial writer shed a few crocodile tears -- " some will have to suffer" (sniff sniff)-- but lauded Taft for his capitulation to the ugly right and his irresponsible choices. Once taxes are cut, it is damn near impossible to uncut them, and taxes are how governments pay their bills.

In a larger sense, today's Republican Party has contributed to budget crises nationwide by helping to transfer more wealth to the wealthy as fast as they can, while pounding home the false message that we collectively don't have to pay for government. Voters still want popular programs, they just dont want to pay for them.

Rather funny typo: "eradication of gypsy mothers." Gypsy fathers, I assume, shall remain unscathed.

This paper's editorial page also wasted no time in praising Kasich's budget --- leaving weeks for reporters to dribble out the details of the carnage.
