    Indeed they have, but the rights of a group should never be put to a vote of the people.

    if you love referendums when they allow "the people" to overturn a legislative decision on union abuses then you have to also support the people throwing out a legislature legalizing gay marriage

    Actually, part of me HOPES they pull this off, and in three years, when the state is back in the toilet financially.. no, they'll never learn. Some folks just don't get that PS Unions are seriously bad news.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Article is here.
    Rather than corporate special interests, they now support union special interests.

    So, how many jobs do unions create? Unions don't pay taxes, either; unlike corporations. Not much business savvy in Ohio, it seems.

    non-sequitur Unionistas in the private sector think an attack on parasitic public sector unions is an attack on them

    just like legal hispanic immigrants are up in arms over attempts to crack down on illegal latino immigration

    Interesting the state voting itself free gifts from the treasury at the expense of the taxpayer, nothing like burning the candles from both ends.
