SB5 referendum drive soaring


"We Are Ohio, the coalition of union supporters that wants to overturn Ohio's new collective-bargaining law, has collected 714,137 signatures, more than triple the number needed to get a referendum on the November ballot.

"Spokeswoman Melissa Fazekas said the group's internal sampling shows the validation rate on those signatures is above 60 pct, and they have met the criteria for collecting names in 44 of Ohio'a 88 counties. Signature collecting will continue for the next two weeks, leading up to the June 30 deadline to turn in petitions."

The coalition needed 231,000 signatures to qualify for the November ballot.

As we trudge on, should we have a moment of silence for Planet Kasich?.

Instead of a moment of silence, how about a wet, loud raspberry?

Whoa up, Abe! If the Ohio gov succeeds in banning unions, maybe Ohio can have a Boeing plant too. That would put Ohio in the same industrial category as South Carolina. Won't you feel secure flying in a Boeing 787 knowing it was manufactured by workers with the lowest pay scale? Yest another market based solution.
