Well, I guess the polls are really full of it. According to an article in the Washington Examiner, 2 things don't bode well for Obama in Ohio:
1) There is a significant difference in the percentage gap of absentee ballots requested by DEMS and GOP (in 2008, DEMS got 33% of ballots and GOP got 19%--in 2012, DEMS got 29% and GOP 24%)
2) There is a 45% DECREASE in the total number of absentee ballots that were requested in 2012 compared to 2008
The combination of those 2 items (GOP having a bigger piece of the absentee ballot pie and an overall significant decrease in the amount of absentee ballots requested) tells you that the Republicans have the corner on voter enthusiasm.
The median income in Ohio is the lowest it has been in 27 years. If that's not bad enough, the number of Ohioans living in poverty is the highest it has been in more than 30 years.
Now before Democrat loyalists start to blame a Republican governor for this, we should add that the highest median income for Ohioans occurred when Bob Taft was governor. The annual median income has decreased by more than $8,000 since 2000.
James Newton, chief economic adviser for Commerce National Bank says that the economic future of Ohio "suggests horrible things"; and that the near future will include continued poor employment growth and declines in income.
As a so-called “battleground state,” Ohio is receiving a lot of attention in the presidential race. There is one important indication that regardless of what the polls show—Obama won’t win Ohio.
The real key to Obama’s inability to carry Ohio is found in the November 2011 statewide election.
A lawsuit was filed on August 30 by True the Vote and Judicial Watch alleging that Ohio election officials have failed to take reasonable steps to maintain clean voter registration lists.
Although Secretary of State Jon Husted was named in the suit, Husted indicates that Ohio's efforts to maintain accurate voter rolls have been hampered by the restrictions of federal laws. Six months ago, Husted sent a letter to Attorney General Eric Holder explaining his concerns, but never received a response.
True the Vote discovered that in three counties in Ohio, the number of people listed on voter registration rolls EXCEEDED 100% of the total voting age population.
There is more information that should concern every Ohioan.
Wow! Can you believe it? Stikii has been up and running for 6 months on June 1st. Time really does fly when you are having fun!

From the question “Why can’t shoes be fun?” came a brand of shoes unlike any other!
Stikii welcomes a new dealer to it's exclusive family of distributors.

‘I don't want presents this year. I want to donate 101 pairs of shoes to kids that don't have shoes!
HOPKINS COUNTY, KY (5/18/12) – For their birthdays, most 6-year-olds want presents and cake. Not 6-year-old Jasmine “Jazzy” Larkins (pictured on far right beside her mother, and older sister Lilly). Jazzy has requested something much different for her 7th birthday this year on June 9th.

Made with real meat, pure pork…no fillers, no additives, no msg…no kidding. Some companies cheat and try to cut costs by using ‘liquid smoke’ Jasinski Smoked Sausage utilizes “real smoke” and our fans tell us all the time that they can really taste the Jasinski difference.
"Five individuals — at least three of them involved in the far-left Occupy Cleveland movement — were arrested on April 30 in Cleveland in connection with an alleged plot to bomb the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad bridge. The FBI described the arrested individuals as “anarchists." (emphasis mine)
What's that you say? These were Occupiers and not Tea Partiers? That just can't be possible seeing as how the left (and their media lap dogs) have spent the past few years trying to paint Tea Partiers as domestic terrorists. I may be mistaken, but I even think the name Timothy McVeigh was tossed around a few times in an attempt to make a connection.

Is your kid special, does he or she like performing, modeling, singing or acting? Does your child like to be on camera or take pictures? Is your little one-not-so-little? Are they outgoing, easy to get along with, a natural leader? If they are NONE of those things, are they just plain CUTE AND ADORABLE? Would they like free Stikii shoes?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may want to get your children involved with the Stikii Kids Club contest.
It's better to be thought of an idiot than to open your mouth and remove all doubt.
That was advice Sen. Sherrod Brown should have used. Instead he decided to call his colleagues "Niggardly". Luckily he's not in the Tea Party which makes him automatically not racist!
