The Montgomery County Democratic Party Shows Blatant Favoritism In Democratic Primary Endorsements

The Montgomery County Democratic Party at its December 12 meeting voted on early endorsements for the Democratic Primary. This endorsement practice is so anti-democratic and so reeks of a system that is rigged that some Democratic Party county organizations prohibit this practice.

Willis Blackshear Jr. got the big prize — the endorsement for Dayton’s 39th Ohio House District. There were four other qualified Democrats who had taken out petitions (see the last article below). A majority of the 29 members of the Screening Committee party chose the 27 year old son of their friend — Willis Blackshear Sr., the

When Is It OK To Call Someone A “DAMN LIAR” ?

At this point in the video, Joe is challenging the farmer to push-up and an IQ test.

Am I making a mountain out of a molehill? Should Democrats be concerned — flabbergasted even — that Joe Biden looked an 83 year old farmer in the face and said “You’re a damn liar, man.” Has Trump made this type of accusative rudeness somehow acceptable?

The old farmer had halting speech and appeared to need a cane. He had already admitted that he didn’t have “the mental faculty” that he once had. He did his best to articulate an accusation

Which Democrat Will Represent OHD-39? Should The MCDP Push An Endorsement Or Let Primary Voters Decide?

There are five Democrats vying for the party’s nomination for OHD-39 and next Wednesday, December 11, the Montgomery County Democratic Party Screening Committee will meet and interview these candidates and will vote whether, or not, to make an early endorsement. The filing deadline is December 18. Any recommendations of the Screening Committee will be voted on by the Central Committee at the December 12 meeting.

Ohio House District 39 is an open seat. The nomination for this seat is great political plum because any Democrat on the ballot for OHD-39 is a shoo-in. Fred Strahorn first was elected in

At 7:55 AM this morning Donna wrote the following on Facebook: “I am preaching Sunday. First time in years. I want to do it. But… Not written yet. So here I am on Facebook. How do you spell procrastination?” I’m getting a little worried because now it is 12:32 PM and it looks like Donna is still on Facebook.

MCDP Central Committee Rejects Setting Standards For Itself That Are Generally Expected Of Legislative Bodies

The MCDP Central Committee meeting last night rejected making any requests of Chairman Mark Owens to implement changes to its standards of procedures of operation.

Originally the five proposed rules (below) were suggested changes to the MCDP by-laws — requiring a two-thirds vote to be approved. The motions were changed so that rather than a vote to change the by-laws, the motions were simply requests of the Chairman — requiring only a majority vote.

Last night’s action culminated in complaints going back to January of this year that the Central Committee procedures were unacceptable. The complaint was that the
