More Things for Sale in Ohio?

* Another dumb idea from Gov. John Kasich, and it will end up costing you more.


...Gov. John Kasich has said leasing rest areas might be a way to address a gap in the transportation budget.

Ohio pays between $30 million and $50 million annually to maintain the facilities.

How do you think a company would make money leasing the rest stops within the state?  You'd have to pay more for services.  There would probably be coin operated toilets, and higher prices on vending machines or food services.  Wouldn't that be fun taking children into paid toilets?

I didn't vote for Kasich, so you can't blame me for his attempts to sell off the state's assets.  If you've learned anything from Kasich and his Ohio Republicans it is this---- never trust a Republican.

Speaking of Republicans not to trust------ How about that Josh Mandel, Ohio Treasurer that is working harder at trying to get a new job than the job he has?  Mandel hasn't revealed much about his own views except he supported SB 5, has voted against supporting public and higher education, likes Paul Ryan's budget plan that gives vouchers to senior citizens, and wants to spend more money on defense, blah, blah, blah,......

Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel has also spent some time in Kentucky, according to a post on Facebook:
    • Wednesday, July 27, 2011
    • 6:00pm until 8:00pm

  • 925 Appleblossom Drive, Villa Hills, Kentucky 41017

  • Please join Ian and Alona Koffler, Special Guest, Josh Mandel, Ohio State Treasurer, County Judge Executives, PVA, KY House and Senate members and dozens of others for our Northern Kentucky kick-off campaign event. Suggested contribution is $100.00, but our greatest interest is having you there for this event! Please come out next Wednesday. RSVP at or just come on out!

  Besides trips to California, Hawaii, DC, Florida, New York, Colorado, Texas, we can also add Kentucky to places Josh Mandel has visited other than the office to which he was elected.

I just saw Jon Stewart mention this:


Sean Hannity incited a group of clergymen to break the law and claimed he would go to jail, too, in order to protest women gaining the guaranteed access to reproductive health benefits President Obama wants for them. But Fox News contributor Father Jonathan Morris upped the ante as he declared fervently, “If I’m asked to do something that goes against my conscience, I’d better be willing to die for that. If I’m not willing to die for that, what am I standing up for?”

It was all part of an hour-long Hannity special Friday night (2/10/12) with the laughable title of “Faith in America.” It should have been called, “How To Use Faith To Promote An Anti-Obama, Anti-Choice Political Agenda.” Tactic #1 was to play the persecuted Christian martyr. Hannity opened by saying, “Let me start with a really simple premise question. Is there a war now against, on religion in America?”

....So there you have it. Fox Newsies are eager to start a holy war - in order to prevent women from getting contraception covered by health insurance.

How big of Sean Hannity to have a discussion about women's health care and include only men. Hannity is still an idiot.
