Fellow blogers,

In a day in age where voters help with the implementation of social and economic policies in our communities it has been a interesting turn of events with the vote for the school bond / levy.

As many of you know politicians or elected officers of government that run for office have a funding mechanism for the implementation of their seat in office. It is threw the associated funding of each candidate or incumbent that the politician makes his plight to get constituents to vote for them so they can win the election.

This basic principal of funding candidates goes back in history, with all kinds of different opinions and results from the funding. Many voters take this repetitive behavior by the candidates as part of the democratic process.

The true deception is that on issues such as the bond / levy  voters allow  the pro levy people to fund raise  and advertise while the minority gets no financial support to share their view. This is a discriminatory practice. While the bond issue seems to have passed, I will be vacating my residence in this community as a imbalance by the ones with money will impose there will on people who are less fortunate in financial matters. I encourage any one to move out of a community that dose not give equal and fair notice to all voters on issues with out using money to propagate election results. Im sure some of you are laffing , and that’s fine you will be laffing alone as more , and more people vacate this city.

Board of Elections Declares Automatic Recounts in Nominations or Elections Within a County
A board of elections must order the automatic recount for any county, municipal, township,
or school district race, or local question or issue election wholly contained within the county
when the difference between votes cast for a declared winning nominee, candidate,
question or issue, and a declared losing nominee, candidate, question or issue is equal to or
less than one-half of one percent (0.5%) of the total votes cast in the candidate contest,
question, or issue.
When a board of elections orders an automatic recount, that county board of elections
must conduct a recount in its county for the election in question according to the
procedures in Directive 2012-52.

It's pretty underhanded that a political campaign is allowed private access to public facilities that are otherwise off limits to the public. Seems highly unethical that our school board would allow this. Is there not something severely wrong with this picture?

The City Building being used for a political campaign party.

"Then, a few minutes after 11 p.m., the election switched, which sent the room in the City Building filled with school supporters into jubilation, and led Rev. Lamar Ferrell, pastor at Berachah Baptist Church and a member of the levy campaign, to an impromptu prayer."

PERHAPS THE GOOD REVEREND'S ENTHUSIASM IS PREMATURE. 'OLE LAMAR MUST LIKE DRAMA. THE RECOUNT NEEDS TO TAKE PLACE FIRST BEFORE ALL THE SUPPORTERS WET THEIR BRITCHES. (DON'T GRIN JUST YET ISON AND COMPANY)

SON AND I DID OUR PART VOTING NO. DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THESE SUPPORTERS THINK THAT THE NEW SCHOOLS WILL HELP THE PROPERTY VALUES IN THIS CITY. STILL HAVE A PATHETIC SCHOOL SYSTEM AS TO QUALITY OF PRODUCT PRODUCED. PEOPLE COME TO THE CITY WHEN THERE IS A QUALITY SCHOOL SYSTEM, NOT FOR NEW BUILDINGS WITH A POOR SYSTEM. CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT HAS BEEN THEIR FRIEND FOR YEARS NOW AS WELL AS THE POOR INDICATOR PERFORMANCE. WHY REWARD STAGNATION?

EXACTLY WHAT WAS THERE TO VOTE YES FOR AND WHY DO THESE YES VOTERS THINK IT WILL CHANGE ANYTHING? THE NEW ELEMENTARIES DIDN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE. WHY WOULD ONE THINK A NEW MIDDLE SCHOOL WILL? NOTHING MORE THAN GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD HERE IMO. (IF THE LEVY PASSES THAT IS) STILL TBD.
I'm so proud of my hometown and what it has become. Recall 'em all. Let's start over.

Good evening fellow blogers,

 

Its your buddy aflatkey with a round of irrational and incoherent postings that some say

border on a communist or anarchist type of mentality.

 

Remember this  ??

 

  “IM NOT A CROOK”  Quote from Richard Nixion

 

Richard was a eloquent speaker some might say , but in the end he had his day.

In todays political and voting issue related environment you all have seen some behavior that borders on the questionable ethics of the administrators and minions of the Pro  bond levy.

As blogers you all are opinionated and have perspective on many of the distasteful antics

that were implemented to corral this vote.

 

Lets go to medieval history for a minute.

 

The anvil - symbol of honor

 

An anvil is a basic tool, a block with a hard surface on which another object is struck. The block is as massive as it is practical, because the higher the inertia of the anvil, the more efficiently it causes the energy of the striking tool to be transferred to the work piece. In most cases the anvil is used as a forging tool. Because anvils are very ancient tools and were at one time very commonplace, they have acquired symbolic meaning beyond their use as utilitarian objects. Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen is notable in using the anvil as pitched percussion. The vast majority of extant works use the anvil as un pitched. However tuned anvils are available as musical instruments, albeit unusual. The symbol of the anvil borne on a shield or coat of arms indicates that the first bearer was a smith. It is rarely found as a charge on a shield. Saint Adrian (also known as Hadrian) or Adrian of Nicomedia was a Herculean Guard of the Roman Emperor Galerius Maximian. He was martyred by having his limbs pulled apart while his body was stretched over an anvil.

 

Do you feel as thought the pro bond / levy  lobby has  martyred your intelligence, compassion, and sence of honor as a tax paying citizen by pulling your wallet apart as they stretch it over the anvil of inequities in the voting process ?

 

Wake up and quit bloging time is short.

 

I e mailed the election board and this was their reply today.

Yes it’s a cut and paste.

 

 

Please find the attached document outlining recount procedures.  An automatic recount cannot be ordered until after the official count and certification.  The official count will take place no sooner than 11 days after the election.  The soonest we will run official numbers is Monday, May 19.  We expect the Board to certify results on Wednesday, May 21.  Warren County also will have to certify before the Secretary of State can order an automatic recount, which will then take place no sooner than 5 days after the order is made to permit time to provide written notice and no longer than 10 days after the recount is ordered.  The soonest a recount could be completed, then, is May 27, assuming Warren County follows the same schedule and the Secretary of State orders the recount promptly.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Now

 

there are ways to legally repeal land tax funding of public schools.

 

http://www.ohioconstitution.org/2012/05/07/westerville-taxpayers-move-to-repeal-march-tax-increase/

 

On May 7, 2012 taxpayers for Westerville Schools, with the representation of the 1851 Center,commenced circulation of an initiative petition to repeal the 6.71 mil tax increase narrowly approved in March after taxpayers defeated a similar measure at the November 2011 general election.

The Westerville effort marks the inaugural action of the 1851 Center in assisting taxpayers in using a previously obscure section of the Ohio Revised Code to lower their school district tax burdens, while forcing Ohio school districts to control spending and reign in labor costs rather than raising taxes.

 

this is only the beginning of what citizen taxpayers can do with in the law to raise awareness that school funding threw property tax is unconstitutional.

 

it is only rational thinking that gave our forefathers the idea that you could not have equal taxation with out equal representation.

 

the current  bureaucracy is tainted in many ways besides  the fact that it dose not “provide for a thorough and efficient system of common schools funded by the state threw contributions from all tax payers, not just tax paying land owners.

 

Check the web site

 

http://www.ohioconstitution.org/

 
i did contact freedom from religion foundation threw their web site.
 

if we are serious about change and just don’t want to  blog  to feel good, lets get off  this

web site and start the petition process as a groop of concerned citizens for our constitutional rights and freedoms.  Call me , identify your self and leave a number .

I am willing to fight back like they did in Westerville.  513-464-1182 – I can’t do it alone.
