*  Ohio Gov. John Kasich, and his two buddies, House Speaker Batchelder and Senate President Niehaus, looked like dummkopfs yesterday.  They knew that no one representing Ohio's unions would show up for a meeting because a letter had been sent to the governor's office.  However, a "no" on the RSVP didn't stop Kasich, Batchelder, and Niehaus from looking like fools.  Kasich and his two sheeple wasted valuable time, and money on their performances and they did the same for each member of the media that also showed up for the pre-determined response.  Does Kasich control the media to such an extent that every single one of them shows up even though they already know what they will see?

Plunderbund said it best on this YouTube video:

Now, more than ever, we must VOTE NO on ISSUE 2.

The bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Columbus does not want his parishes or schools to raise money for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, which provides funding for breast-cancer research, screening, prevention and treatment.....

.....No money given to Komen in Ohio goes to Planned Parenthood, said Megan Savage, community-outreach director for the Columbus Komen affiliate. Nineteen Komen chapters in other states do partner with Planned Parenthood, but Ohio funds do not make their way to those efforts, she said. Local money funneled to the national organization goes entirely to research, she said.

When money does go to Planned Parenthood, it is given to breast-health programs only, Savage said.....

I'd guess that many Catholics have benefited from the cancer research that has been done with money provided by Komen.  Are breast cancer patients and survivors to refuse any benefits provided by Komen in the form of counseling, research, and support? I think that people need to speak to the diocese about this.
