Ohio Republican Motto: Win if you can, lose if you must, but ALWAYS cheat!
Not much different than the Democrat motto.
As you may or may not know, Chairman #Stompyfeet mandated that anyone wishing to testify @ today’s hearing, submit a written testimony two days in advance.
Turns out, doing so is prohibited under House Rules:
Rule 31 (b) The chairman of a committee shal not require any person testifying before the committee to provide a written copy of the person’s testimony.
Our guess is that this play came from Batchelder’s gal Friday and former Fordham fellow, Colleen Grady (yes, that Fordham).State Treasurer Supports Common Core Repeal Bill God forbid they play by their own rules…clearly the paid hacks need two days (and a dictionary) to figure out how to get around facts and logic (which don’t cease to exist by the way, simply because they choose to ignore them).
Nicely played, red!
Ya know, if they had put as much effort into vetting Race to the Top/Common Core as they have cheating and scheming, before they sold Ohio’s parents, children and teachers to the federal government, we may not be in this situation.
If we were Chris Redfern, we’d run a reasonable democrat (if he can find one) against every progressive Republican in the House and Senate who continues to force this federal boondoggle onto taxpayers.
And since no one has the testosterone to take on Governor Me, My$elf and & Kasich in the Republican primary, it is our guess that Ohio goes cobalt blue next year, and you can blame Republicans who are impotent when we hand them a majority, and refuse to govern according to the platform on which they run.
Unfortunate for the whole 7 people in Columbus who take their oaths seriously:
“I, (who is paid a salary, pension and lifetime benefits by Ohioans), do solemnly swear to support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of the State of Ohio, and faithfully to discharge and perform all of the duties incumbent upon me as a member of the Ohio Senate (House of Representatives) according to the best of my ability and understanding; and do this as I shall answer to God.”
Warren County GOP Rejects Common Core
Last night, roughly 80 members of the Warren County GOP Executive Committee unanimouslyvoted to adopt the RNC’s resolution to categorically reject Common Core.
We hope others will follow this effort, which was lead by the Anderson Township liberty movement, and the Hamilton County GOP.
At the very least, this is another “progressive” filter in the vetting rubric through which candidates will be considered.
More than that, it was “a moment.” One could not tell where the “old guard” began and the “new guard” ended…not because they wanted the meeting to be over (a lengthy question & answer session took place), but because every reasonable person present saw the fundamental perils of this federal overreach into our state, our families, and our individual lives.
As we remember Ronald Reagan’s birthday, let us also remember that by definition, “Republicans” do not advocate for the federal takeover of anything…let alone both healthcare and education, which sadly, Governor Kasich has conceded. Teachers Face Retaliation for Criticizing Common Core So now is the time for Ohio Republican officials to decide between what is right and what is easy.
To them we say: nullify these federal overreaches; take back our state sovereignty and by extension, our individual liberties. Your decision and ability to do so will determine whether or not the Republican Party will remain a viable, political entity, or go the way of your predecessors, the Whigs.
“When an opponent declares, “I will not come over to your side,” I calmly say, “Your child belongs to us already… What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.”
