Let’s all use Husted logic in the next election

I’ve heard it a million times, I work in the city, I pay city taxes, yet I have no say in what goes on because I don’t live in the city.

Well, for those of you who own property within the city, with paid utilities, there is great news, you can now use the “Husted defense” and change your registration to vote in Dayton in the upcoming election. Just hurry, because registration ends this week.

I have to thank Jon Husted for this amazing gift he’s given me, just before the election:

State law requires that voters live where they are registered and that state legislators live in their districts. Brunner’s ruling only covers Husted’s voter registration. The issue of his 6th District senate seat is up to the Ohio Senate to decide, and Senate President Bill Harris, R-Ashland, has said he believes Husted is a Kettering resident.

Husted contends Brunner overstepped her authority by subpoenaing utility records and other documents she used as evidence in her ruling.

via Court has no jurisdiction over Husted’s residency dispute, says Brunner [1].

And, don’t worry, you don’t have to worry about the Secretary of State coming after you, because, well- the office has no power to investigate in Jon’s self-centered world.

Too bad Jon doesn’t own property in the City of Dayton too- he’d definitely want to vote here so he could  try to vote down the  2.25% income tax next time it comes up. You see he also has a ghost job at the Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce that allows him to collect a big check without having to show up for work. The only person who turns the lights on in that office is the cleaning person- and they don’t have much to clean since Jon doesn’t really work there anymore than he really lives in Kettering.

So, remember, if you own real estate in Dayton- you now have permission to change your registration and vote here, courtesy of Jon Husted. Just do it quick.

With dead people donating to McLin [2], smear sites run by the Montgomery County Democratic Party [3], huge donations to incumbents from people they’ve only “met once [4]”  and now “Husted logic” we’re getting close to having a complete mockery of the election process.

If your spouse gets picked up for DUI (which makes you too busy)& you are a BOE Board member in Montgomery County this also gets you exempt from turning in required paperwork to the SOS about Ohio elections. Hell, if you want to go against Federal Court orders to maintain & secure ballots that are being investigated (Presidential 2004) you can go ahead & destroy them & not even turn in the proper required SOS forms as to why you destroyed them…we’re so blessed with stewards of the law in Montgomery County.


I do appreciate your comments about the Husted situation. Your postion on this topic is (as usual)  interesting as well as thought-provoking (as are most of your blogs). However, the tone of your blogs — this one regarding Husted as an prime example — more resembles the smear campaign that you accuse the Montgomery County Democrat Party of using against you.  It’s more the tone of what you say rather than the content that makes it resemble smear. Just a bit surprising given the level of your protest against how the Democrat Party speaks about you.


“it’s all fun and games, because he gets paid whether he works, or not”

so, tell us then, how you feel about those people on welfare. The majority of them do not work and screw the taxpayer all the time. I know, your a liberal, so you have different standards for different people.

From the head, not the heart…..

So, Gene, since you speak about welfare “from the head, not the heart,” could you tell us about how welfare works?  Do you know in what year welfare was reformed?  Care to place a guess on the acronym of the program under which people currently receive welfare?  How many people in Ohio currently receive welfare?  How long has the average person in Ohio received welfare benefits?
I may be wrong, but I’m betting you don’t know any of that.  You, of course, could show me that you’re wrong.  Do tell us about welfare in Ohio.  Give us some concrete examples of how people in Ohio who receive welfare “screw the taxpayer.”  Be sure to cite sources.

http://www.dispatch.com/live/content/local_news/stories/2009/02/22/caseloads.ART_ART_02-22-09_A1_87D043V.html is an interesting article about welfare in Ohio.  In October 1998 there were 311,872 Ohioans on welfare; in January 2009, there were 186,985, a slight increase from 2007 but significantly lower than ten years earlier nonetheless.
The article tells the story of a 32-year-old mother in Columbus who became ill, lost her job, had bedbugs from her neighbors, and is trying to find work.  Gene, do you think she’s trying to “screw the taxpayer?”  Should she be pulling herself up by her bootstraps, or is it okay for her to receive some assistance from taxpayers?
If so many people on welfare are managing to screw the system, surely you can counter with an newspaper story or two giving some examples, Gene.
