The Shaking Quakes in Arkansas

The memorable earthquakes that I have experienced:

I was in Ohio, a good distance from the epicenter in Kentucky. However the ripple effect was felt quite intensely in Dayton. This was the first earthquake that I experienced in my adult years and all of the awareness of true danger.


Ah… the Whittier-Narrows… I was right in Long Beach, California. The devastation was wide spread and quite significant. Now the danger I felt was for my children and so five months later we left California for a more stable environment!


Who knew Arkansas would begin a consistent pattern of earthquakes that appears to be alternately growing in intensity? Of course, this is where I am, right in the thick of it. What was mind blowing, the other night, was the fact there were two potential natural catastrophes converging in Arkansas. Now Arkansans are going to have to make storm cellars that are earthquake proof too!

Ohio Buckeyes Aren’t Feeling It, The Unions Are Passe!

My native Buckeyes, your fellow “Ohio” union trolls in Columbus appear childish and out of touch. Unions don’t put food on the table of all Ohio residents, they don’t fill your football stadiums, and they won’t even move until they get their way. Unions are nationally directed roving thugs, they are passe, and a blight upon this great nation. A couple of snippets from this past week in Ohio:

I’d tend to believe all of the teachers are not on board by viewing this video.

In fact the nimrod Dems have to you-tube instructions for Union goons to hand make signs. Follow der Leader! And Canton… drop Fisher… find a nice conservative candidate to support. You’ll be glad you did!

And a filthy union troll in the great Ohio Statehouse spewing trash talk, btw he doesn’t appear to be an Ohio native son. When company comes to my house, I don’t allow talk like that, he’d be out the door on his ear.

Positive Attitude, Faith, and Each Other:  Wilmington’s Biggest Assets as Glenn Beck Set to Visit

Blogger:  Come and visit our home; you may not want to leave.

Wilmington, OH, December 13, 2010.  On December 15, radio and TV host Glenn Beck plans to visit small town America—Wilmington, Ohio, population fewer than 13,000.  The town is known to many as “ground zero” because thousands lost their jobs in early 2009 when its largest employer, a shipping company, closed up shop.  It was a brutal blow.  USA Today, CBS’s 60 Minutes, and even the president of the United States have visited and reported on the hard economic situation; and yet they chose to ignore the forward-looking, affirmative steps Wilmingtonians are taking to revive their community.

Despite the high unemployment numbers that still exist, Wilmington and Clinton County residents want people to know their focus isn’t on the negative—it’s on the positive, their faith, and each other.

For example, Julieann Martin, who’s lived in Wilmington with her husband for eight years, knows of an 84-year-old man who “grew four times as many tomatoes as he needed.  When they were ripe, he gathered them in his basket and handed them out to his neighbors.”  She said, “Another neighbor saw this and grew cucumbers to hand out.  Another did the same with peppers.  People had fresh food and the community was able to help feed each other.”

There are other ways Clinton County is self-renewing.  Locals are maintaining houses that are up for sale by mowing the lawns, picking up trash, and otherwise keeping the houses looking presentable to potential buyers.  Locals are also stepping up to take care of and keep an eye on empty buildings.  “We don’t have depressed-looking areas,” said Julieann.  “The general thought is that if we work hard together as a community, the reward is achieved by all.  The common goal is saving the community, which we are all a part of.”

Area nonprofit organizations are ever hopeful they will meet their goals to help low-income, at-risk members of the community because residents are volunteering and contributing in so many ways.  Folks are still giving, no matter how small the gift and despite their own hardships.

Wilmington residents are grateful for the recent publicity and are hoping visitors will acknowledge the nonprofits that still need help:

About the Cincinnati Tea Party


The Cincinnati Tea Party is a grassroots, nonpartisan organization promoting its core principles of fiscal responsibility, limited government, and free markets, while strongly opposing wasteful government spending at all levels.  We encourage our members to actively participate in government by supporting candidates who share our core principles or by running for office.  Our goals include influencing elections to protect the freedom of current and future American citizens, promoting state sovereignty (Federalism), and compelling our elected officials to comply with the Constitution of the United States of America as written.  To accomplish our goals, the Cincinnati Tea Party:

• Provides Voice to liberty-minded Americans through rallies, forums, and town halls

• Supports the Education of Americans for a better understanding of our Declaration of Independence, our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, and the authority granted to our government by the People

• Impacts Elections throughout America by encouraging freedom-loving American citizens to run for office at the local, county, and state levels

The Cincinnati Tea Party was founded in February 2009 by a conservative group of Cincinnatians who love America and want to pass its gift of freedom to future generations.  In April 2009, Community Tea Parties were launched to allow local leaders to spread the core principles at the neighborhood level.

John Kasich, Ohio Candidate for Governor, Signs Petition to Protect Ohio Citizens From Federal Health Care Legislation

Ohio Candidate for Governor John Kasich Signs Petition to Protect Ohio Citizens From Federal Health Care Legislation

Columbus, OH, November 1, 2010. Ohio Gubernatorial candidate John Kasich yesterday signed the initiative petition for Ohio’s Health Care Freedom Amendment, sponsored by the Ohio Liberty Council.


This proposed amendment to the Ohio Constitution would protect Ohio citizens from mandates of the recent federal health care control legislation, and is the single strongest statement against the bill in the United States. Initiated by Ohio citizens, the proposed amendment has gathered over 250,000 signatures, having already exceeded the state-required number of participating counties.

Kasich said, “Today I signed the Ohio Project’s initiative petition to amend Ohio’s Constitution and preserve Ohioans’ freedom to make their own decisions about health care.


I believe Ohioans deserve the best health care possible, but Obamacare doesn’t do it. Reform is needed, but it should lower costs, not raise them, and it should keep bureaucrats out of the private relationship between doctors and patients and end the frivolous lawsuits that drive up costs.


Ohioans deserve a solution to health care that doesn’t bring more big government, but which preserves their freedom to make their own decisions about their health care. I look forward to working with you to bring about that change.”


The Ohio Liberty Council would like to thank John Kasich and Congressman John Boehner for signing this amendment and making a very clear statement that state sovereignty is alive and well and Ohioans will not tolerate the unconstitutional mandates of the health care bill.



About the Ohio Liberty Council



The Ohio Liberty Council is a nonpartisan coalition of like-minded grassroots organizations throughout Ohio.  The council strives to achieve these strategic objectives:


· Foster accountability of elected officials and government

· Grow awareness of the movement

· Promote state sovereignty

· Educate citizens

· Effect elections


The council began in June 2009 as a way to connect liberty-minded Ohioans.  The group communicates on issues, but more importantly, seeks to create concerted action among the groups.  By working together, the council intends to achieve real results to protect and promote liberty in Ohio.  The most important issue facing Ohio is state sovereignty, which is the main focus of the group.

Additional Background on Health Care Freedom Amendment


The amendment would protect Ohioans from the financial burdens and individual mandates contained in the new federal health care measure passed by Congress.


After amendment language was challenged and a ruling to block it was issued, the Ohio Supreme Court unanimously ruled against Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner, approving the constitutional amendment language. The signature gathering process is underway.  More than 402,000 valid signatures are needed to qualify for the ballot in 2011.

US House Minority Leader John Boehner Signs Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment Petition


Ohio Liberty Council Contact


U.S. House Minority Leader John Boehner Signs Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment Petition

West Chester, Ohio, September 19, 2010 – Congressman John Boehner, who represents Ohio’s 8th District, has joined thousands of other Ohio voters in signing a petition to allow Ohioans to vote on the proposed Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment.  Boehner, the Minority Leader of the U.S. House of Representatives, signed the petition while in his home district.

The Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment would free Ohioans from the individual mandates of Federal health care legislation.  The amendment would preserve the right of Ohioans to choose their own health care and health care insurance coverage, and make their own medical decisions.  As a Constitutional Amendment, it would specifically protect health care choice as a right of all Ohioans.

Twenty states have filed suit against the federal government to restore the rights set to be stripped from their citizens by provisions of the federal legislation, and several states have taken other measures to protect the rights of their citizens.  Since the governor and legislature of the State of Ohio refused to act to protect their constituents, the Ohio Liberty Council, a volunteer group of conservative citizens, proposed the Ohio Health Care Freedom Amendment and has led the effort to place it on the ballot for a vote by all Ohio citizens.  Not only did Ohio fail to act, but the citizens’ group was forced to obtain a ruling from the Ohio Supreme Court to stop Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner and the Ohio Ballot Board from blocking the petition effort by what many Ohioans consider an abuse of their powers.

“It’s a sad day when citizens must override their elected officials to protect their rights.  Neither our statehouse nor Attorney General would answer this federal challenge to personal liberty.  It now falls on the shoulders of concerned citizens to do the heavy lifting,” said Chris Littleton of the Ohio Liberty Council.  The State of Ohio requires 402,275 valid signatures of Ohio voters to force the issue onto the ballot, and collection of signatures is now well underway–all obtained by citizen volunteers.
