Fed up with Valley Democrats? Visit GOP open house Saturday

Fed up with Valley Democrats? Visit GOP open house Saturday

I am writing today as a re- action to the recent news about another tarnished office in Mahoning County. Once again, another member of the Mahoning County Democratic Party has jeopardized the integrity of a county office. I for one am sick and tired of hearing about one Democrat after another being indicted or brought up on some charges. Of course in this instance, I am speaking of former Democratic Party Chairman and, as of today, former Mahoning County Treasurer Lisa Antonini.

The time has come for those people who are looking for an alternative to the corruption in local government to step up and take some responsibility. There is an alternative in Mahoning County, and I am challenging those people who are quick to judge but slow to act to give the Republican Party a try.

This Saturday the Mahoning County Republican Party will be having an open house to meet with Valley residents who are interested in running for public office. This is an opportunity for those people who say that the Republican Party in Mahoning County needs better candidates to step up and be that voice.

I have been a long-time volunteer for the party and am proud to say that I will be there on Saturday morning to talk with locally elected Republicans and see what I can do to help change Mahoning County. If ever there was a time to step up, it is now.

I am personally challenging everyone who says there is no alternative to the Democratic Party in Mahoning County to be the change they want to see. Join me at the Mahoning County Republican Office on Saturday, and see what you can do to help.

Ryan Beil, Boardman

The writer is vice chairman of the Youngstown State College Republicans.

I may need to switch to another party. I get confused being a Democrat-Socialist. So many rules:

1) Hate your fellow countrymen who make more than you . The more they make, the more the hate. Hope those that make less than you don't hate you.

2) Somehow believe that spending more money will lower your debt.

3) It's ok to use bribes to pass bills and buy votes with public funds.

4) It's ok to steal money from future generations to buy us "stuff". They'll pay for their stuff, our stuff, and the interest on our stuff. We'll tell ourselves we're being "compassionate."

5) Lie. Flat out lie. Alot. About Anything. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H64yKJ...

works both ways. here's your republican rules:

1. hate anyone who makes less than you. the less they make, the greater the hate. anyone who makes less than you is a lazy bum who doesn't work hard.

2. somehow believe that the deficit can be significantly trimmed simply by cutting spending. in addition, believe that the super-rich shouldn't have to pay their share in taxes.

3. just vote no on any bill.

4. it's ok to make the rich even richer at the expense of what used to be the middle class. shrink their taxes and leave a bigger burden on regular people. we'll tell ourselves we're "creating jobs"

5. that's interchangeable. all politicians lie.

The answer my friends is nothing. I for one will be going to the GOP HQ to see who will turn up to try and turn this county around.

1. We don't hate anyone who makes less then us. I make less then everyone I work 40 hours a week at minimum wage yet I'm still a Republican.

2. We are one of the highest taxed nations in the industrialized world, cutting spending is THE ONLY way to cut the deficit

3. I believe it was the Democrats who voted no to cut significantly to the budget and are playing political games with our futures.

4. The tax rates have been pretty much static since 2003, so the burden on the middle class is not getting any higher.

5. That's a flat out lie. Its coming from someone who is to stubborn to make a change in the valley. Many politicians do lie, however I have come accross many who tell you the flat out truth. The one's that do lie, cheat, and steal are the one's who don't have to worry about being elected or being reelected. Mahoning County has been for to long a free ride for the Democrats, they need to know they are here to serve us not just their friends and family.

Lets see how bout we lower the tax on gasoline. Oil companies make 2 cents profit per gallon of gas. The federal Government makes upwards of 60 cents per gallon profit.....cut the gas tax and lower gas prices! In 2008 when gas was this high Democrats blamed Bush, when he had a Democratic congress, our congress is actually trying to permit companies from exploring but the Senate refuses.

Dutch Royal Shell was shot down by the EPA when they went to explore the arctic, after Shell put billions of their own money into it.

Why should we let Brazil drill in the same waters that Obama has a moratorium in?

Quit blaming Republicans and quit changing the subject of the letter. It is about the corrupt Democratic Party in this area and how it will never change

Ok I will look at what GOV. KASICH has done:

1. Balanced a 8 billion dollar deficit given to us by the democrats

2. Enacted cost saving measures for the future

3. Increased state aid to school by 1.5%

4. Not raised our taxes in this recession contrary to what the Democrats wanted.

5. Remembered and supported development across the state INCLUDING our area.

Not so bad for the first year I think.

Yes please look what Governor Kasich has done! He has done EVERYTHING he promised. He is a great man and honest politican.

What did Teddy do?
Sure he visited the valley like 200 times but thats it. He did for campaigning 90% of his visits occured in 2009 and 10 when he was worried about his job security.

Kasich is using permanent solutions to balance the state budget which he is REQUIRED TO DO. We were 8 billion in the hole and he has not raised taxes by one penny.

Teddy relied on temporary solutions to patch the budget. He had NO REAL PLAN.

We have a constitutional requirement to balance the budget, with a declining population tax revenues decrease, and with this declining population, some services need cut....

Kasich is in no way, shape, or form a low life. He is being responsible and putting our state on the path for fiscal solvency.

Sears Roebuck is looking to move out of Illinois due to extreme tax increases, locations rumored are Ohio, Wisconsin, Indiana, Texas, or Georgia.

Businesses look for states with business friendly environments, Ohio is finally returning to this state after years of pathetic leadership.

4 years from now you will look back and ask "Are we better off then we were in 2010"? The answer will be yes. And we will have John Kasich to thank. Not any of the pathetic local Democrats like Comrade Hagan, or Gerberry....Ted Strickland will continue to try to be relevant but will always be pathetic just like the ODP and MCDP

If we end tax subsidies to Oil companies, how will they pay for this exploration? Oh gee I know raise the prices of gasoline and the middle class will continue to suffer.

How bout instead we cut one of our HUNDREDS of entitlement programs and see where that goes? Real solutions not just talking points....

Politicians are to worried about their job security instead of their country's future. Paul Ryan is not afraid to tackle the big issues and face the challenges that may not be popular.....

Kasich has in his first 4 or 5 months set up this area and state for economic success. So yes use the talking points the unions and Dems give you. But in the end read SB5, the jobs budget, and Governor Kasichs plans then actually form a valid opinion not one based on rhetoric

THe Jobs Budget passed the Ohio House and will pass the Senate, his budget is balanced, so essentially yes it gets implemented for fiscal year 2012 and YES it will be balanced from the getgo...

Barack Obama is on the record saying he wants gasoline to be $5 a gallon so people will drive less and be forced to purchase Hybrids.

I don't understand why people in an increasingly desperate State of Ohio continues to support GOP candidates and policies that aren't in their best interest. It astounds me that anyone could support the GOP when they destroyed this country with policies that:

1) Created a fiscal crisis that is unmatched by anything short of the Great Depression

2) Oppose healthcare for children by vetoing the SCHIP law

3) Defamed us with rendition (torture) that produced no results and left Osama bin Laden at-large for 10 years

4) Turned a fiscal surplus into a decifit by giving tax breaks to the wealthy

5) Fought two wars (one in the wrong country) that weren't on the books

6) Created energy policies that were written by and for the energy companies

7) Allowed junk mortgages to be created that imploded the real estate and jobs market

8) Opposed the bail-out of the car industry, "cash for clunkers" program, and healthcare reform

9) Illegally wiretapped American citizens and news reporters that opposed their policies

10) Outed a CIA agent in charge of controlling loose nukes worldwide because her husband exposed a lie about yellow cake uranium in Africa that was completely false.

I don't understand how somebody making minimum wage supports oil companies making 34 billion dollars a quarter. 34 billion a quarter< I don't think 2-4 billion in taxes will kill the business. Do you?
Its a good thing unions fought for minmimum wage or you would be making less than that.

And at minimum wage if you need health care, Obamacare will probably come in very handy. Not very many minimum wage jobs offer health care.

18AnotherAverageCitizen(1174 comments)posted 3 years, 4 months ago

As I posted elsewhere.

This is why we need unuins to stand up for the workers. I am not saying CEOs desreve great pay, but workers also need to pay their bills also.

CEOs got a whopping 24% pay hike last year as corporate profits soared with the recession's end, more than making up for two years of declining pay.

The average worker? Not so much. Those lucky enough to still have jobs saw their pay inch up a meager 3.3%, which might have been enough to cover the rising prices of gas and food.

That difference in raises for CEOs and working stiffs is the latest turn in a trend that's been nagging CEO pay critics for years. That's the ever-widening gap between those at the top and their underlings, which is creating a superelite in the U.S. -- and not helping investors or the economy.

Giving investors a say on pay
Consider these gaps between some of the highest-paid CEOs of 2010 and workers in their industries:

•At Viacom (VIA.B, news), CEO Philippe Dauman got an impressive $84.5 million last year, or 1,990 times what the typical Viacom worker got. This assumes his workers make the $42,500 a year, on average, reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics as the typical pay for employees in arts, design, entertainment, sports and media.
•Larry Ellison, the CEO of Oracle (ORCL, news), got similarly regal pay of $70 million last year. That was 750 times the $93,470 earned in 2010, on average, by computer software engineers, according to the BLS. Ellison, unlike a lot of CEOs, actually took a pay cut last year, but he still pulled down $1.35 million per week -- a sum it would take the typical computer software engineer more than 14 years to earn.
•John Hammergren, the CEO of drug company McKesson (MCK, news), was paid $54.4 million last year. That works out to $210,000 a day, assuming a normal workweek. That's almost three times the $74,590 that a medical scientist earns in a full year, according to the BLS. Hammergren's 2010 pay was 732 times the average pay for those workers.

Michael Brush
.Overall, CEOs at S&P 500 companies were paid $11.4 million on average last year, up from $9.2 million the year before, according to the AFL-CIO. In contrast, average workers saw their annual pay go up to $33,121, from $32,049 in 2009, according to the Institute for Policy Studies, a think tank. So the pay gap of CEOs over workers shot up 20% last year, to 344 times an average worker's pay from 287 times.

Back in the 1980s, this pay gap was just 40.

The problem with all this? It's bad for business and bad for shareholders, a lot of business experts say.

Anyone making less than $250000 a year is not a republican. That's the threshold of the Bush tax credits so that's where the republican party starts. If you are under that, you aren't a republican. Or you are being duped. That being said, anyone making $250000 a year could give a rat's arse about anyone making minimum wage. A union sponsored benefit by the way. So the next time you think you are republican making minimum wage, thank the unions and the democrats for making sure you have that minimum wage. Not to mention the 40 hr workweek, weekends off, etc. etc. etc. In the meantime, wake up.

@ jrolley325

Pure genius,.. LMAO !!!

@ AnotherAverageCitizen & cambridge

Those hate rage-ers have no answers for you.

Hence another call for sensibilities,..

The irrefutable true is that the genuine democrats in neither Mahoning, Trumbull nor Cuyahoga county has a party. They've got besieged by a copy cat faction of the mob,.. which are republicans in drag.

Although republicans still have their branch in tact in all it's unfettered fanagling's. I don't think they're in any position to try to recruit with what John Kasich has displayed as their factions foundation.

So that means any candidate that genuinely seeks a chance to assist and offer their candidacy for any office. Will have to do it as an independent or some other identity.

But word to the wise if you have ties to either that fraud mob disguised as democrats. Or have any history of having rubbed elbows with Humphries and Munroe's republicans.

You can save your time and money because the voters will find out because those two factions will ensure they don't let you seize any position they don't control.

So don't try to lie and allege you're not connected to either of them if you are and or at anytime were.

" Pretty gd smart ",.. you telling, complaining or asking?

See it is what it is there Do boy, and you don't fool me a bit..See I detect you're displeased and unsettled about the candidly conveyed analysis. For which you're of absolute crony variety and " Conspiratorial ". In and of itself is unquestionably thee absolute most outlandish term that you could have misused in your inept effort to skew the view,.. Got that?

Why don't I run for office?,.. you're not the first one to ask or wage that request. However, currently I'm engaged in things that I feel provide a greater good than just Youngstown. Where in contrast my question to you is what role do you play in the corruption that's crippled the city?,.. fair question?

You definitely took exception to your being cited as second rate racketeers. Where you don't like them being called " Copycat factions of the mob " and the " Republicans in Drag " recognition twisted your unibrow,.. how does eventual " Perps on Parade " grab ya?

Also see in regards to your effort to suppress independent expressions. No matter if a person submits " 1 " comment or " 100,000.00 " of them. It doesn't signify, insinuate nor even remotely imply that the individual thinks they're " pretty gd smart " you treacherous trick,.. check or hold?.

See a comment is nothing more than shared as a personal perspective. A perspective open to discussion and affords others the liberty to agree or disagree. In a manner of engaging in like mind or opposing objective,.. don't like the reviews?

Not as bad as Stan { you say },.. Does it even occur to you how nonsensically silly that parable is? See Stan and I are as polar opposites in posture, perspective and post count as it get's?

Although your effort and or hope was I'd possibly follow that lead to digress. And resort to commenting on Stan, and not serve a centralized deposition upon you. For which Stan likely delivered a sardonic quick quip about you and your rat pack faction. That you didn't like, couldn't refute and you waged some similar and or didtto rubes response at him too,.. LOL !!!

See on that note,.. extraordinarily rarely have, do or will I agree with Stan, as surely his sentiments would be the same. However, he's not stupid and if he and I agree in unison and or similarity.To mutually be inclined to detect that you're a mole and what you do is detestable and indefensible. Then that's rather evidentary for one to conclude it just doesn't get anymore exact, conclusive, objective and or distinct than that,.. that the response you expected?

You inferred " Charlie Sheen and 9/11? ",.. Since you implied just what's your take on a pair of sky scraper's. That were built to withstand earth shift of seismic atmospheric and longitudinal sway.That's to actually crumble in demo form of free fall speed and fashion. As a result of impact from passenger aircraft,.. Got a clue?

What's known is it's apparent that when the truth or plausible speculation is spoken. Only the guilty gets quiet defensive and it's not uncommon for them to even try their harrowing hooves. At creatively attempting the deceptive craft of deflection via various nonsensical statements,.. and you're a textbook example. .

So see it's established that you don't like the truths being spoken. Yet and for which you can offer nothing to refute it. Which reveals you're likely some local yokel flustered fink working with a flock of frauds. That feel's your indignities has finally not only drawn the ire of the insightful. But it appears the feds attention is now included. That changes the game and the cards you and your cohorts have dealt yourselves are starting to be flipped,.. .

Now having said that,.. it's my belief that a greater number than " 7 " of Youngstown's organized crime criminals. Are likely going to be presumably getting their chance to do some fancy pageant walking during a forthcoming perp parade. To wit it'd be my guess that not many will be surprised if the greater number of the " Stars " weren't those of the persuasion to be masquerading as democrats,.. what's your guess?

See all that's my beliefs and it's in total contrast to the BS you're on there Morocco mole,.. .

Wall Street and its Financial District was certainly capable to cripple America. Understand Corruption! Please consider their "party" ?!
I believe it was the 'rich and wealthy' that was responsible for such disaster! In my opinion, little Youngstown and "the valley" can rally all they want but its a domino effect that starts on top and works its way down. Youngstown as a whole is NOT the 'rich and wealthy'...it's the working class and middle class folks. So, careful when labeling corruption addicts and look at the BIG picture to place blame or fault .

Money is going down because ONE TIME FEDERAL STIMULUS MONEY is gone. That is not the governors fault, and those stupid school administrators should have planned for it instead of thinking they could blackmail the state into matching those funds.
