Buckeyes are “Undisputed” National Champs

Buckeyes are National Champs
Wow, what a game! The Bucks beat the Ducks 42-20 … even with a 3rd string quarterback … and with four turnovers. That’s amazing. We’re so proud of them!

Empire State Bldg

The NYC Empire State Building recognized the Bucks’ win by lighting it up in scarlet and gray.

There was some humor on Twitter as someone noticed the similarity of the ref to Bob Newhart, a name which ended up “trending” on Twitter. Eventually the REAL Bob responded on Twitter saying that since he no longer was working in a series, he decided to take a new job. :-)Bob Newhart vs ref

2016 GOP Presidential Candidates

Are we ready for the 2016 political games to begin? The GOP has many qualified potential candidates being discussed. The initial disagreement will be candidates from “The Establishment RINOS” vs the conservative side of the party.  The conservatives point out that the last two elections offered up moderate or RINO candidates – and they lost!

One subject that may be debated is the citizenship qualification to be President. Obama’s birth certificate has never been verified nor whether his Indonesian citizenship was revoked, leading people to question his seemingly anti-American position in many of his desired policies. That citizenship qualification is certain to be debated for Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal. They all have parents that were born in other countries, leading questions to their total allegiance to America even though they are U.S. citizens.

  • Ted Cruz was born in Canada but has/had dual citizenship since his mother was born in U.S. His father was born in Cuba. Earlier this year, Ted gave up his Canadian citizenship.
  • Marco Rubio was born here, but both parents were born in Cuba.
  • Bobby Jindal was born here, but both parents were born in India.

After Obama’s weak background of no management experience, many people are saying we need to elect a Governor to get us out of the mess we’re in. Governors in effect run small countries and must negotiate well with both parties in order to balance budgets – a requirement for the states. We need their executive experience, plus it’s very easy to check their record for success or failure. Much of the credit Obama takes for jobs and unemployment rate, came as a result of hard-working GOP Governors such as Rick Perry, John Kasich and Scott Walker.

I prepared this graphic to illustrate the differences/similarities of the people that “may” be considering a presidential run. Eventually I can “x-out” names as they go away or implode between now and 2016.

Gov Kasich speaks at Powell rally

Gov John KasichYesterday I attended a Kasich/Taylor rally at the GOP office in Powell. It was a gorgeous fall afternoon so there was good crowd ready to listen to Gov Kasich speak to us. I like listening to him as he speaks totally off-the-cuff … no notes … and no stammering like the guy in the Oval Office.

We were given tickets to attend another rally this coming Sat (Nov 1) at OSU Airport. Gov Chris Christie (NJ) will be here to campaign with Gov Kasich plus other GOP leaders. The doors open at 9:45am with the event beginning at 10:15am.

When you vote, be sure to watch for fraud and report it if you do. Already machines in Chicago were found to be switching Republican votes to Democrat votes. Make sure your electronic machine is recording your vote correctly!
