Time to Be the Canaries in the Coal Mine

Remember how Sherrod Brown always wears a lapel pin with a canary in a cage? It represents the canary in the coal mine that warned miners of danger. We can play that role when it comes to John Kasich's run for the White House. He is gaining in popularity and M$M is gushing about what a moderate he is.

We know better. We live here. We know what he did to local government budgets. We know how he has attacked public workers and unions. We know his Medicaid expansion was a cynical ploy to make himself look good outside of Ohio. We know how he has attacked access to women's health care. We know about the disasters of charter schools and the millions in public dollars pulled from public education to underperforming for-profit charters. We know that one child in four in Ohio is living in poverty and that our Infant Mortality Rate is either 47 or 48 (I've heard both numbers). We know that we are lagging behind much of the rest of the country in job growth.

Let's get the word out--especially to friends and relatives who don't live in Ohio. We need people all across the US to know just what John Kasich is all about.

1. I agree, he worries me the most. He appears so sane.

2. Absolutely!

When the lame media gets tired of playing with Rump, they'll drop him like a hot potatoes.

THEN the fear of a Dem staying in the WH will set in...they'll then need to promote a RePuke...this guy is the one that scares me as well.

5. There are no moderate Republicans.

They are all completely radical protectors of oligarchy and monopolistic style capitalism. Eisenhower was the last moderate republican.

6. I have one of those pin from Sherrod

Don't forget his plan to give all the state prisons to a private organization to be run for-profit.

And I love how they are running an ad in Ohio right now blaming the slow job growth on the previous Governor.

7. Sigh

I think we could all go for days listing the bad things Kasich has done to the state of Ohio.

We are getting bombarded with dark money ads already. Between the guy saying Ted Strickland killed his job to the white mommy explaining why she is a Republican to the gem about how Republicans believe in education, I'm ready to lose it, and the election season has not yet begun. I keep waiting for a bolt of lightning to strike the TV when the announcer tells me that Republicans support education.

8. I have not seen the support education ad yet

I would probably throw something at the TV if I heard that bull shit lie.

9. It shows up on local Cleveland TV news

Designed to reach out to the low-educated voter. I haven't thrown anything at the TV yet, but have yelled some things that have caused the dog to blush.
