Ohio, Cincinnati Politics - Recap

Yesterday was that time of the year again: Me drinking wine out of a box until 1am! It was also election day!

Couple notes on the presentation, then to the issues and how they fared.

  • WLWT - What was up with the giant "2" in 2009? You're channel 5. WTF?
  • WKRC (channel 12) - not everyone has a 52" 1080p television. I've got a reasonably large tube TV and could not make out the results on the bottom of the screen.
  • WCPO (channel 9) - Unrelated to elections, but "A travel trend with all the benefits?" Who's writing your naughty copy?

And on to the issues:

Ohio Issue 1 was funding for veteran care. No-brainer. Passed like nuts.

Ohio Issue 2 was to allow the state to outline guidelines for animal care. Well, you may say, that sounds cheery! Of course Yes! And that's why it was worded the way it was. The Humane Society was hard against it because it basically allowed the state to bow to dirty, mass meat producers and draw up guidelines that favor those mass producers so animals can be kept in tiny little cages, etc. The NO lobby was out to lunch on education, so it passed easily. Sad day for independent farmers in Ohio.

Ohio Issue 3 was ...Casinos! They've got 'em in Indiana, West Virginia, Michigan, but not here. The bill called for four casinos to be built: Toledo, Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati. Aside from the churchy folks, it was pretty easily passed and means a great deal of income and jobs for our state. Oh, and gambling and maybe some hookers. So yay!

Hamilton Co. 4 was for family medical care, 5 for MR/DD, both passed.

Hamilton Co. 6 was a levy to support the Museum Center and 7 was to support the libraries as Ohio found it necessary to cut the state budget for libraries - one of our best resources - by over 25%. Until today, county has never had a hand in funding. Both passed!

Hamilton Co. 8 was to keep the Water Works a public utility (passed), and 9 was: a Yes vote meant you wanted anything having to do with streetcar planning to be put on a ballot for general vote. It went down, meaning the city can spend that money without voter approval when the time comes, after talking about it for a decade, that they might invest in a rail system.

Really, I thought this post would be a little more interesting. Sorry about that. But yay casinos!

Mark Levin is Poop!

Facebook captcha says so:

Dare not argue with the internets. Or be a whiny, annoying asshat. Or you, too, will be poop.

"I said 'Good Day' sir!"

What is Sexy?

I thought I had this great idea: look up the word "sexy" on Google Image Search and see if I can find something not sexy. Easy enough, right? Surprisingly not. The survey says: 75% scantily clad women, 20% animated scantily clad women, 1% lady robots, 2% meathead guidos, 1% Dane Cook, and 1% something like this:

Scary kid

And the only reason that showed up was because the pic was named "sexy1.jpg" Terrifying.

Oh, and what else is sexy? This is:

It will not end here

It's a photoshop of a comic cell that Monkey posted a little back. Click his link to see the original. Sexier with or without the monster?

Either way, I believe this will NOT be a regular feature. It took 20 pages of search results with a "break" in the middle to make this post.

But fear not, always new and interesting things from the internets.

(Yes, it was a lady robot break.)

Republicans for Rape

If this does not make you angry, I'm not sure what can. It's worth every second.
