WHAT SHOULD I BE DOING INSTEAD OF THIS?
 
 

Voinovich and Deters

1 Comment · Tuesday, December 7, 2010
Maybe it's easier to stand up for principle when you're retiring in a few weeks, but the Republican U.S. senator from Cleveland has never been afraid to buck his party, when needed. Now George Voinovich is calling out skittish President Obama and dogmatic GOP lawmakers for their deal to extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone — including millionaires and billionaires — for the next two years.

The Tea Party's crazy contradictions put their stamp on the 2010 elections

2 Comments · Wednesday, October 27, 2010
The 2010 elections will be remembered mostly for the Tea Party movement, though the exact meaning of the movement is yet to be determined. If Republicans are successful in co-opting Tea Partiers' anti-government anger and gain majorities in the U.S. House and/or Senate, the movement will have "arrived." If voters wake up and realize that the Tea Party simply is a "populist" cover for the Republican Party, Democrats will be given further time to continue cleaning up the mess left by the Bush administration.  

Brother, Can You Spare Some Ideas?

Hamilton County officials are asking residents for help in determining what course of action to take to solve some of the most severe budget issues the county has ever faced.

Federal transportation officials announced late last week that Cincinnati will receive a $24.9 million grant to help build a proposed streetcar system, while the NAACP's local chapter continues its strange disconnect from the organization’s national office.

State workers may soon be able to extend their benefits to "live-in" partners. Against the idea is Citizens for Community Values leader Phil Burress, whose official statement on the issue included a disturbing metaphor about the ends of an extension cord not fitting together if each has three dicks.  

ACLU and John Boehner

It's about time that someone of note said it publicly. During a June 9 conference of progressive activists, ACLU Executive Director Anthony Romero declared, "I'm disgusted with this president." No, Romero wasn't repeating any of the outlandish attacks that Tea Partiers and far right kooks have made about President Obama personally. Rather, he was referring to Obama's policies on civil liberties and national security issues, which have contradicted his campaign promises from 2008.

The Ohio Supreme Court ruled June 9 that Hamilton County Prosecutor Joe Deters was within his legal authority last October when he convinced 12 Common Pleas judges to sign an order firing a private law firm used for years by Hamilton County commissioners. The action was taken without prior notification to the commissioners and occurred only after they had cut $15 million from the Prosecutor's Office budget. Just a week before the high court's decision, another judge in a lawsuit related to Deters' action had sided with commissioners.   

Judge Rejects COAST's Claim, Scolds Prosecutor

Ronald Reagan once supposedly said the unwritten 11th commandment, at least as far as politics was concerned, was "Thou shalt not speak ill of another Republican." That must have been the thought going through Judge John D. Martin's mind when he wrote the recent decision in a case before him involving the Hamilton County commissioners, Prosecutor Joe Deters and the Coalition Opposed to Additional Spending and Taxes (COAST).

There are good reasons for sports fans to hate certain professional baseball teams, but a new algorithm that analyzes how people feel about things has determined that the Cincinnati Reds are actually the third most hated team in baseball, trailing only the Cleveland Indians and Boston Red Sox.
