It's election day in NJ, MS, LA, the Northern Marianas Islands and....
In the Commonwealth of Virginia, the Senate is currently controlled by the democrats by two seats. It'll be an interesting night.
That, and Kasich's foot in mouth disease definitely worked against us. And frankly, nobody on the YES side put yard signs up because we knew what would happen.
What are the state issues again?
1 2 3?
Most states require you to get their DL within 30 days of moving into the state. You might as well take the loss, it’d be cheaper than being cited for an improper DL.
Eastern Shore is the other side of the Chesapeake Bay.
Accomack, Northhampton, and Matthews Counties, part of Norfolk City and a small piece of Virginia Beach city.
As a staunch advocate for Right to Work laws and for the abolition of the enslavement part of parcel of the minimum wage, I'll admit that I haven't been following the situation in Ohio as closely as I should. What exactly did Governor Kasich do?
In any event, I'm keeping tabs on the results in Ohio and my prayers are with those who are on the side of liberty in the fight against the tyranny of unions and their band of thugs and goons. And maybe there's hope that the Buckeye State will revisit this issue and join the states where freedom reigns!
Thanks.I think I got it
Issue 1 is judges staying if they are old
Issue 2 is YES to doing away with mob rule Union thugs
Issue 3 is Yes to canning ObamaCare in Ohio
Yep it is a cake walk for the left tonight! Even Norfolk so far is going left........how stupid is that
A lot of GOP counties not in yet!Correct?
wait - prop 2 - Proposed Referendum to repeal Am. Sub. S.B. 5.
we want no on that
Yes I know I still have time for the general.I sure like the states that if you have a valid DL already it is online and a few bucks.Va. makes you come in do the eye exam PAY BUCKS blah blah...and the inspection is so wrong like NC they do emmissions crap.Not the safety of the vehicle at all..
I expected Northam to pick up most in Norfolk and Northhampton. But I was hoping Loyola would have a better showing in Norfolk.
This is sad
Correct, but the tallies are the reverse of what they should be in the counties that are in; the trend here is easy to see. Issue 2 will fail, and SB5 will be repealed.
Yup. I can’t stand Northam. I no longer even bother trying to get an answer out of him about anything.
I handed out paper for Nutter for Va Senate but it looks a little bleak.
Official Argument and Explanation for Issue 2
Vote YES on Issue 2
A YES vote on Issue 2 will make long overdue reforms to unfair and
costly government employment practices in Ohio, while helping to get
government spending under control and making government more
accountable to taxpayers.
Your YES vote on Issue 2 will:
Protect Good Teachers and Improve Our Schools
Issue 2 keeps the best teachers in the classroom by ending the
unfair practice of seniority-based layoffs, which forces struggling
schools to cut many of our best teachers first.
Issue 2 returns control of our schools to taxpayers by bringing
increased transparency to teacher contract negotiations.
Issue 2 enables schools to retain and reward good teachers by
allowing them to base pay raises on job performance.
Restore Balance and Ensure Fairness
Issue 2 ensures that government employees receive quality health
care, but asks them to pay a mere 15% of their health insurance
coverage, which is still less than half of what the average private
sector worker pays (31%).
Issue 2 asks government employees to make a fair contribution
(10%) to their taxpayer funded retirement plans instead of requiring
taxpayers to provide these pension benefits for free. Many private
sector workers get no retirement benefits at all.
Issue 2 allows good job performance to be considered when
awarding pay raises to government employees. Private sector
workers earn their paychecks by doing a good job, and so should
Get Spending Under Control, Retain Jobs, and Protect Taxpayers
Issue 2 will save our communities millions of dollars annually,
helping them balance their budgets and retain jobs.
Issue 2 will protect taxpayers by giving them the right to reject
unaffordable government employment contracts.
Issue 2 is the right change at the right time
Vote YES on Issue 2
VOTE NO ends all firefighter and teachers jobs and no safety at all all will die and be raped if Obama’s mob thugs don’t win and all puppies and kittens will die and ohio will be Ca.
Fraud? Union thuggery? Both?
My husband just got up and walked away from the computer saying “I’ve seen enough.”
