Diary of Ohio #1

There seem to be a lot of cry babies in Ohio.  Just this past week they have cried and cried.  Used to be that Republicans were more subtle about their racism.  He says he wants to work with everyone who is willing to tackle the state’s problems.  It probably means  that as long as they agree with him, then he has use for you.  Tell me it ain’t so Lord John!

Just this past week the criers were out in force.  Lord John was going to have a all white cabinet, and that made them all cry.  Is is racism or is it or a different diversity than most expect? What is diversity?  Does it just mean color, race, sex and political affiliation, or does it mean new ideas, fresh thinking and hope for the future? Must we always be politically correct? 

Senator Nina Turner [D-OH] should know better.  She lacked the courage to confront him face to face and ASK what the Govenor mean when he said “I don’t want your people.”  She should have used all her alleged leadership qualities at the time of the Gov. comment to get the difinition of what he meant. Instead, she screamed racism and used the color card?  The truth is that Ohians regrettfully eleceted that state Governor.  The Governor will select the most qualified cabinet members based on their abilities and experience.  Qualifications should have nothing to do with the color of your skin.  The Declaration of Independence list no  exclusions: 

             We hold these Truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Libeerty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – That to secure these Rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, that whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these Ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institue new Government…..

Kasich ran on a simple platform: things suck, let’s change. The system is broke. We need someone to come fix things.  Most of Ohioians believed that lie.  Now we are going to pay the price.  He told us we need a new way.   We hear only the old way.  Remember Ken Blackwell?  Same song different man different color.  Kasich will scream “I am not a racist. Some of my friends may be, but i am not.” Senator Turner should know that you do not fight racism with racism.  We must not be like him. Let him bury himself.  I fear for my state and the policies or the lack thereof of this Republican Governor. 

I am tired of the cry babies.  I am tired of the people who will not lend their efforts to turn this state blue again.  I am tired of the big ideas and the small brains.
