    In the WV Senate section you have 'Sen. Patrick Morrisey' listed. Morrisey is not and has never been a senator; he is the current WV Attorney General and is running against incumbent Sen. Joe Manchin.
  • Reply to: Group Called "Citizens for a Strong America" Operates out of a UPS Mail Drop but Runs Expensive Ads in Supreme Court Race?   1 year 4 months ago
    The mailer I recently received in the mail sent out by Citizens for a Strong America is so misleading I thought I should try to find out about CFASA. If this group truly is for a strong america they would disclose who they are and where their money comes from. They totally discredit themselves by sending out propaganda and then hide behind a fake organization. This should be illegal and those responsible should be exposed. All candidates for all offices in South Dakota are honest people - much more honest than the group Citizens for a Strong America. Makes you wonder who is feeding them money, like maybe from overseas or are they just a money laundering organization that works for the highest bidder? It would be interesting to see if they campaign against Democrats as well as Republicans?

    "he literally put the fox in charge of the hen house." He may be a predatory asshole, but he's not a canid. He's figuratively a fox in charge of the hen house.

    OEA/NEA is the big union for teachers in Ohio. They do NOT stand in the way when a school district wants to fire a teacher.. even mid year. Their contract negotiations are often "no raise" contracts and then they peddle this line that there was "nothing they could do". I'm sorry. Unions, through their "you have to pay us either way" mentality, have basically given a middle finger to the membership. All talk with pickets and facebook posts. Forget Donald Trump or the Koch brothers... OEA's demise will be totally self-inflicted. People aren't going to pay $800 a year for a no raise, "at will" contract.

    ALEC has been in many of the mainstream churches and organizations for a long time. I saw it back in 2005, or around that time when Dodson of Focus and the Family fired a gent in his organization for addressing climate change or recycling, something like that. In AZ there was a church that spent a whole sermon speaking about how Obama's birth certificate had been altered. It goes on and on. What we need is a New Economy, so I guess I will become a church.
