… So , What is Next for Right to Work ?? [#new target]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 9th,2016

.. how about Ohio ?? ..

.. my native state would be nice , for sure . Ohio is , however , an initiative / referendum state . Any move to put through a right – to – work law in Ohio would be immediately under attack on the ballot . But ….

.. put it into the state budget . Ohio has a constitutional quirk , even with the initiative / referendum process . Any issue that is included in the state budget is , however , NOT subject to an initiative . So , then , it would be blocked …

.. anywhere else ?? …

.. [h/t — m.NationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the news article ..

.. Missouri is one . Missouri is highly likely to have a GOP governor , once Jay Nixon and his sorry carcus are gone . Peter Kinder , the current LG , would be an excellent candidate . Also , the Missouri GOP has nearly a 3/5ths majority in the legislature , enough to override any possible veto ..

.. West Virginia — the GOP controls both houses of the Legislature , but not the Governor ‘s chair . Not yet , at least . That is yet to come …

— [update] — Wisconsin has adopted its Right – to – Work bill , and Gov. Scott Walker has signed the bill into law , at last , making the Badger State the 25th state with a Right – to – Work law . Yeah !! …

.. after elections next year , Missouri should become state # 26 . LG Peter Kinder [R]  is a strong favourite for the Governor ‘  s race . He has no major opposition in  the GOP  primary , and  is [so far] the strong favourite in the general election race . Presuming he  wins ,  Kinder would  very strongly  and  likely sign the Right to Work bill into law ….

… Missouri Governor Jay Nixon should resign [#failure]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Saturday,May 28th,2016

.. if he does not , then he must be impeached , tried , convicted , and removed from office …

.. the greater Saint Louis area had plenty of warning about the release of the grand jury decision . Governor Nixon obviously knew what might be coming . He is the commanding officer of his state ‘ s National Guard . He should have damn well known what could have happened in the potential aftermath of the announcement …

.. well , he [bleeped] up . Huge . The National Guard was mobilized . But only 750 troops . When much more were needed …

.. eventually , Governor Nixon called up an additional 1,500 National Guardsmen and Guardswomen . Finally , at last …. now , things are much more peaceful , at last …

.. however , it is a responsibility that Governor Nixon must bear , and bear alone . He is alone command responsible for what he does or does not do to help deal with the situation . He could have and should have done far better to help deal with the situation . Evidently , the Mayors of Ferguson and St. Louis [city] both wanted to reach Gov. Nixon regarding the National Guard . They could not . That is unforgivable , given the situation . There must be accountability for this situation …

.. Jay Nixon must resign as Governor of Missouri . If he does not , he must be impeached and removed from office …

… An Amazing Tale of Generosity [#Natalie ‘ s Cakes and More]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 7th,2016

.. this one is a real tear – jerker ..

.. Natalie duBose worked for years to save money . She wanted to open her own business . She loved to do cakes , cake decorating , desserts , and other items . Well , fate intervened …

.. Ferguson , Missouri happened …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. Natalie had just opened her business this spring . Then , the Michael Brown saga intervened . Not just one set of riots ,but two sets. The second set of riots , though , was the far more devastating …. a great deal of damage was done to her bake shop in the November riots …

.. well , America stepped up . A campaign was started on the crowdfunding site called GoFundMe . She did not know what would happen . Wow , did you respond … over $625,000 was raised , and Natalie was able to fully rebuild her shop … and then some …

.. now , with the notoriety , she has been able to ” go national … ” . She is able to accept orders [literally] from anywhere in the country . She has far more business than she can handle . She has 8 employees , and she is expanding locally , principally …

.. God Bless You , Natalie duBose , and Good Luck , Always !!

… Oh , Dandy [#state of Emergency][#Ferguson , Mo]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 13th,2015

.. here we go again ..

.. and yes , the professional ” protestors ” are at it again . Why isn’t George Soros and his flunkies sitting in a prison cell alongside them , too ..

.. we have reached the 1 – year anniversary of the Michael Brown shooting in Ferguson , Mo . A more accurate way to put it is to call it the 1 – year anniversary of the attack of Michael Brown on Officer Darren Wilson . Why ? Because as the investigations [including the one in front of the St. Louis County grand jury] proved that it was in fact an attack by Brown on Wilson , plain and simple ..

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit.com]..

.. [link] to the blog post // video // pictures ..

.. now with the 1 – year anniversary , the professional ” protestors ” are back  again .  Worse yet , they are rioting . Which is what the city of Ferguson and St. Louis County do not need …

… Now it is Berkeley , Mo [#police shooting]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Monday,December 29th,2014

.. but the circumstances could not be more different …

.. this 18 – year – old kid is [was] a robber , an armed robber , matter of fact …

.. he was stupid enough to draw on a police officer while trying to rob a C – store [convenience store / gas station] . Bad move , dummy …

.. [link] to the news segment …

.. when you are a bad guy , and you draw on a good guy , you are going to lose …. every time ….

.. congratulations to the good guy for coming out alive !! ….

… At Least Someone Did Their Homework [#Darren Wilson case][#Ferguson]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 7th,2014

.. thankfully ..

.. these days , you really cannot count on the dummies in the LameStream Media to do their jobs . They are extremely lazy , and do not work hard enough , to be sure …

.. but , for once , CNN has someone who did their work and took it seriously …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop.com]..
.. [link] to the video clip …

.. current CNN legal analyst Melina Robbins did , and how ….

.. she examined the grand jury report , and did so carefully , in detail . She found out some very interesting details that you have to hear from her to believe …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,November 9th,2014

.. the word has finally gotten out , courtesy of F.O.I.A. …

.. also , the A.P. ..

.. the Feds were playing fast and cute with the Constitution …

.. [h/t — TruthRevolt.org]..
.. [link] to the blog news …

.. the FAA imposed a media aerial blackout in the skies over Ferguson , Mo for two weeks in August of this year … they did it not for safety reasons , as they had originally had hinted …

.. they did it to keep the media out …. O-U-T of the airspace … so that they could not film and / or record the protests and riots from above …

.. hmmm …

… What Could E.S.P.N. have found Wrong with This ?!?! [Charitable Christian Ad] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,December 15th,2013

.. there will be several links with this one . The place where I live has DirecTV , and it does not have ESPN (rats) …

.. I heard about this controversy , courtesy of being a fan of the O ‘ Reilly Factor on FoxNewsChannel . Bill caught this one , and hammered ESPN for it . I can understand these folks wanting to be non – controversial , but jeezus …

[h/t–theBlaze.com]

.. [link] to Bill ‘ s commentary on the controversy ..
.. [link] to the ad ..

[h/t — CNSnews.com]

.. [link] to the video and the article …

.. the ad is a charitable Christian – based ad for the Cardinal Glennon Children ‘ s Foundation . They are raising funds , as they often do , for their foundation , and for the Cardinal Glennon Children ‘ s Medical Center , a Catholic – based hospital in St. Louis , Missouri . They wanted to buy time on ESPN to promote their cause during the Christmas season . No biggie , there . Or , so you would think . ESPN rejected the ad . Why ?

.. I think that it was for its ” overly ” religious content . Also , the ad encouraged people to visit the foundation ‘ s website , and write sympathetic and empathetic messages for children , if possible , ones with a religious basis . These days , TV channels behave like a bunch of wussies . They run like hell away from anything that they think might or could be controversial . It seems that religion , amazingly enough , is a controversial subject . Why ? …

… a Potential Game Changer in Missouri ? …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,October 10th,2012

… i repeat ,  it is a potential game changer …

… it appears Sen Claire McCaskill and her husband , Joseph Shepard    , got caught making up to nearly $39 million in revenue from public housing subsidy contracts , and did not disclose it . Not on her U S Senate financial disclosure form(s) . Most possibly , not even on their tax returns . How many ways other than “Six Ways from Sunday” can you say stupid . Even worse , corrupt . Even more of a problem , criminal …

… Forget about her Senate financial disclosure forms . How about releasing the relevant years of federal income tax returns . Both of them are in very deep trouble . Not to mention her campaign against Todd Akin …

… Yea , I know , Akin stuck his foot waaaay into his mouth . But Missouri is in the heart of the Bible Belt , folks . Their tolerance for corruption is far lower than that of an idiot sticking his foot in his mouth …

… This election is back in the tossup category . It may even be potentially be within reach for Akin , if he can prosecute the argument adequately …
