Litigation Shame For Ohio

via Tony Phyrillas

Frivolous lawsuits take valuable time and money from the citizens of Ohio. Unfair and onerous lawsuits, under the guise of the "little guy" vs evil corporations and mythical "pain and suffering" rulings, are costing Ohio jobs as well as valuable time and money. Judges that have the ethics and morals of a cathouse mouse write their names in their history books by rendering absurd and legally unsound decisions, at the expense of all Ohioans for their lawyer friends and their clients who receive the crumbs.

If Marc Dann and Rev Strickland want to play their little games fine by me as long as they do them on their on time and dime.

In 2006 Ohio was rated by the Institute for Legal Reform as 19th in litigation fairness.
In 2007 Ohio had sunk to 24th.
In 2008 Ohio sank further to 32nd.

It is my hope that the Rev and the perv will leave office and set up an ethics think tank.

Out of state.

Activism Versus Punditry

The Next Right is an important step. Another excellent site is Fort Hard Knox. I don't want to shut down servers worldwide with a mere suggestion to my minion, but I'd join these to take your conservative activism to the next level.

If Batchelder Controls The Heat, Dann is Done

One of my heroes, Bill Batchelder, is looking into the debacle called Marc Dann. When and if Bill Batchelder finds what he needs Dann will be looking into a new line of work because Batchelder loves the law and the state of Ohio.

One thing is so certain as to take it to the bank, Bill Batchelder will follow the law. That is a fine testament. One which Dann wouldn't know if it bit him in the butt.

Batchelder examining how to oust AG Dann
During his nearly 40 years in public office, state Rep. William Batchelder often has found himself at the center of major battles.

He helped decide how the Ohio House should respond in the 1970s to campus uprisings and in the '90s to state lawmakers accused of skirting campaign finance and ethics laws.
Now, the Republican from Medina, a constitutional lawyer, has been given the task of researching the process House members would use to impeach Ohio Attorney General Marc Dann.

Dann, a Democrat, admitted Friday to having an extramarital affair with a subordinate, and he fired or accepted resignations from four employees for their part in a sexual-harassment scandal. He apologized but refused to resign.

Gov. Ted Strickland and other Democratic leaders have said the House will try to impeach Dann if he doesn't step down.

Speaker Jon Husted, R-Kettering, asked Batchelder to guide the House on how to follow a process that hasn't been used in nearly 200 years.

''I have selected Rep. Batchelder for this task for several reasons, paramount among them because he is respected by members of both sides of the aisle on matters of great importance,'' Husted said.

Begala & Hillary's Party Is Just Eggheads & Afro-Americans Without Whites

Boy, I love being fought over. It's more fun than being just another sex object for a Sadie Hawkins Soirée.

Plus, now I know just how truly them Democritters love me. Theys was jus playin shy.

Mr. Begala, a Clinton supporter, said the party could not win in November with just “eggheads and African-Americans,” that the party could not ignore white middle-class voters. Ms. Brazile, who said she was not “undecided but undeclared” when it came to her choice for a candidate, shot back that Mr. Begala’s notions were dividing the party. (And that she’d chugged down many a beer with Joe and Jane “six-pack” in an effort to woo white voters.)

This whitie come lately conversation is going to help them win in November .

Hillary Only Now Rediscovers Whitey

Clinton makes case for wide appeal
Hillary Rodham Clinton vowed Wednesday to continue her quest for the Democratic nomination, arguing she would be the stronger nominee because she appeals to a wider coalition of voters — including whites who have not supported Barack Obama in recent contests.

"I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on," she said in an interview with USA TODAY. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article "that found how Sen. Obama's support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me."

"There's a pattern emerging here," she said.

Yep, a pattern. It may be a pattern of remembering "working, hard-working Americans, white Americans" are due representation as well as all others. Pandering has its problems, as Hillary is finding out. It's a pattern of Democrats, when about to lose, rediscovering the rest of America.

Does Ramirez know something we don't? That looks like Rev Ted Strickland.

The Purple Donkey In The Limousine

Frank Rich, who finds odious all things conservative, has a new piece up which should delight his entire audience, his editors.

The All-White Elephant In The Room

Rich does an adequate job of minimizing the heart and the intellect of "conservative" evangelical preachers and those they endorse. Rich even has a theory of why Jeremiah Wright's video gets more play than Hagge's or Falwell's, it is Wright's histrionics and black-theater. Is Rich the reincarnation of Jimmy the Greek who portrays Wright and other black preachers as better and prettier because of their blackness and history of slavery? Probably. It is the type of cheap shot Rich employs often if he can squirm it in against white conservatives in a way as to not to appear racist himself. Rich loves his gotcha moments as proof of his moral insight of all that is wrong about America, but Rich gets to his point in the last paragraph;

Anyone who does the math knows that America is on track to become a white-minority nation in three to four decades. Yet if there’s any coherent message to be gleaned from the hypocrisy whipped up by Hurricane Jeremiah, it’s that this nation’s perennially promised candid conversation on race has yet to begin.

Abolitionists, the Civil War, Eisenhower and all the people working to put race in its place, no place, have not been candid. Only Rich and his rich intellectual friends discussing "race", global warming and other priority issues in their limousine's and jets, just out of hearing of their chauffeurs, have been candid in their speech and actions, but they never seem to notice the elitist purple donkey in their midst. That would just ruin their pâté de foie gras. Talk about tragedy.
