New Stadium Tax!

Dear fellow tax hikers, yesterday we learned that Hamilton County taxpayers will soon have an opportunity to implement another stadium tax to renovate the privately-owned US Bank Arena! We love all tax hikes, but stadium taxes are the best.  Our county has enjoyed tremendous success from the first Bedinghaus/Qualls Stadium Tax - so much success that we are now being told we need to spend $250 million on another stadium.

Leaders have said they will seek a "public-private partnership".  This means the public will pay 99% of the expenses, while the private owners might be kind enough to put in the final 1% - if they feel like it. 

We endorse this tax hike.  The Bedinghaus-Qualls Stadium Tax has been an unrivaled success.  We think another stadium tax would be delightful if it ensures another riverfront stadium as great as the first two.

Dear fellow tax hikers, we realize it's been 11 days since our last post.  Call it a summer break.

So we will catch you up on everything that's happened since we took a vacation:

- Donald Trump
- Hillary Clinton

Help Planned Parenthood make a buck

Dear fellow tax hikers, our friends at Planned Parenthood have come under fire over the revelations that they have been selling the body parts of the babies they abort.  We don't see the problem here.  What's wrong with profiting off the human body parts of a non-human life?

See the abbreviated 9 minute video and the full, unedited 2h42m taping here

The reaction against this honorable commerce has been swift.  Speaker John Boehner has announced Congress will hold hearings.  Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is investigating in his state.  Ohio politicians John Kasich and Dave Yost have condemned it, as have numerous presidential candidates.  We are going to share some relevant information. 

- This is not a human being:

It's a Planned Parenthood revenue stream. 

- There's no reason to respectfully dispose of these non-humans when you can make a buck off them.
In newly released undercover footage from the pro-life Center for Medical Progress, seasoned abortionist Dr. Deborah Nucatola, who serves as national senior director of “medical services” at Planned Parenthood, chitter-chattered eagerly about fulfilling the bloodthirsty demand for “intact hearts,” “lower extremities” and lungs.

Price tag? “You know, I would throw a number out,” she babbled breezily as she twirled her fork. “I would say it’s probably anywhere from $30 to $100″ per specimen.

- And this is a Siamese Pig:

No, actually it's NARAL Ohio's Executive Director Kellie Copeland.  She stands with Planned Parenthood in this controversy. 

We all should stand with Planned Parenthood.  Remember - an unborn child isn't a human, until their human body parts can turn a profit for Planned Parenthood.

Bail out Greece

Dear fellow tax hikers, it is urgent that the United States Government begin its next bailout program. 

Yesterday Greece voted to reject their latest bailout. 

Tomorrow Greece may run out of money. 

So only one thing can be done.  Bail out Greece!  Greece didn't like their last bailout offer, so surely they'll like ours.  We call on President Obama and the rest of our allies in Washington to make this happen.  Who cares if we ever get paid back?  We don't.

Red Light Bribery scandal - the players

Dear fellow tax hikers, as Columbus politics continues to be rocked by the Red Light Camera bribery scandal, we want to take some time to make sure you meet two of the key players.  (You may want to click on the pics to enlarge.)

First up is Columbus City Council President Andrew Ginther, Democrat running for Columbus Mayor.  King of tax abatements, stadium bailouts, and data rigging.

Next, meet Ginther's pet Democratic lobbyist John Raphael.  Also functions as Ginther's enthusiastic food taster and errand boy.  In his spare time, a professional Twinkie connoisseur.
