Blaise Castle Folly
Near Bristol
On a hill above the gorge is a sham castle overlooking Bristol, Avonmouth and the Avon Gorge, with views across to South Wales on a clear day. The architect was Robert Mylne and the date of building 1766; it is now believed that the design and the choice of the Gothic castle style may have had political connotations. Although referred to as a folly, it was inhabited well into the 20th century with sumptuous internal decoration.

Napolitano Wants To Put Illegal Aliens In Hotels

Since the government is nationalizing other industries they should buy a hotel chain for this, say Residence Inns and rename it Illegal Residence Inns.

U.S. to house detained migrants in converted hotels

Obama could put Bertha Lewis in charge of this program. That way she could register them when they sign in. Kills two birds with one stone. Then she could find them a nice cozy home at a really good interest rate so they can start getting their government benfits checks sent right to them.

No On Issue 2 And 3

It is quite simple, really.

Issue 2 adds another layer of government at a time when we should all be striping away layers of government and throwing them in the waste bin of failed modern history. The fact that the board is unnecessary and has little or no oversight makes it a no brainer.

Issue 3 is about gambling. 28 states have casino gambling within their borders. Casinos bring a lot of baggage, including corruption, prostitution, general crime and filth, which we don't need here in Ohio. If I want to gamble there are plenty of places to do so, elsewhere. Just because I go to WalMart once or twice a year doesn't mean I want to live next to one. If you're thinking NIMBY, you'd be right. I lived just outside Reno, have visited Las Vegas many times and watched the transformation of the strip and its effects on Atlantic City and it is ugly just outside the bright lights.

Both Issue 2 and 3 are unnecessary and are to the detriment of Ohio. Of course there are those who see no problem with more government, jobs at any price and crime. They'll vote yes on both.
