For the Republicans who control Ohio state government from the governor’s office to the Senate to the House to the auditor to the AG to the SOS to the treasurer (etc., etc.) the really bad optics here is DeWine’s timing with this proposed 64-percent increase. DeWine’s Republican colleagues in the House and Senate just voted themselves – and many of their friends in government across Ohio’s 88 counties – a nice little pay raise after the November 2018 election. None of them, to my knowledge, campaigned on a platform of “Vote for me, and I’ll give myself a raise, courtesy of your hard-earned tax dollars.” However, that is exactly what they did.

    Ladies and gentlemen, when we left off from last week’s confabulation, Hillsboro businessman Charles Singleton Bell (1829-1905) had experienced a fortuitous accident that led to his discovery of a metal that produced a ringing sound of a bell.

  • The Green New Deal is a raw deal
    Tuesday, February 19, 2019 10:38 AM
    The recently proposed Green New Deal is a raw deal for the American taxpayer. It’s a socialist manifesto that lays out a laundry list of government giveaways, including guaranteed food, housing, college and economic security even for those who refuse to work.

  • Walter Jones and the vote to end U.S. war on Yemen
    Tuesday, February 19, 2019 7:26 AM
    If the Yemen War Powers resolution passes the Senate, which is likely, Congress will have provoked the first veto from President Trump. Such a veto should not discourage us. Even the strongest army cannot stop an idea whose time has come. Ending senseless U.S. wars is an idea whose time has come. We can thank Walter Jones for his role in making it so.

    The Saturday USPS mail included an interesting postcard from Rob Anfinson of SurfNewMedia.com with an equally interesting offer to change our internet web host from a Kokomo, Ind. company to a Naples, Fla. company. Given that I received this in the dead of winter in Ohio, I quickly thought less of Kokomo and more of Naples. Maybe Rob would invite the staff down to the sunny Florida Gulf Coast to have a look-see at SurfNewMedia.com.

  • Is it better to give than to receive?
    Monday, February 18, 2019 10:03 AM
    Among the many things the federal government has taken from us, the joy of giving may just be the most serious.

  • Let’s not let manners fade away
    Sunday, February 17, 2019 11:15 AM
    It seems like we should be exhibiting and extolling simple manners and courtesy rather than letting these behaviors and values fade away. Life would be much kinder and easier if we lifted each other up rather than put each other down. I can’t imagine what circumstances would exist where the current, ill-defined political correctness excuse should ever trump decency. Can you?

  • Five enduring lessons from Ronald Reagan this Presidents Day
    Sunday, February 17, 2019 10:36 AM
    The secret to America’s strength has never been her leaders. It’s always been the American people. We have always been, and will always be, a nation uniquely defined by the voices and votes of her citizens.

    The wonderful key for a Christian is to live in the great attitude of sacrificial love we receive through the giving that Christ made at the Cross for us. It is the great attitude of His sacrificial love that makes Heaven forever possible.
