I didn't know Beemon was also a tatoo artist? He can do it all.

Where are all the posts from the couple of hard-core right wingers who spew their virulent hatred on this blog?

On the political front, you're dead on JB!
Simon has made a fool of himself and lost all creditability.
He's as good a reason as any to vote down the tax!

Here I am Right wing nut job sorry I am late. Had to stop someone from burning the flag and did not have to oppress anyone today forgive me. There is always tomorrow. The reason I was so late is that I found out that Hamilton County sends more people to alternative treatment programs than any other County in Ohio. Also I found out that the average education of someone locked up is 5th grade. What do those two facts tell us? We are dealing with 5th graders and treatment programs don’t work to stop recidivism. So what answers do you have? A usual answer to the Right Wing Nut job response is we have to look at the problem as a whole person not just a throw them away into a big holding cell, education is key love not hate blah, blah, blah. Looks like the Dems are trying the education side, and the re-entering society thing, (check out the sheriff website) and now that SI is on your side you call him a nut. How is this turning all into SI fault? Sure he is old and out of touch with reality but look at the two that voted for the increase. You are falling on the side of DeWine? We pay to many taxes; well sorry we need a jail. Well we at least need a fix; I have not heard any Left Wing always correct thinking DEMS come up with any ideas. I know what the response to that statement usually is we have to change the drug laws, well how is that working out for you so far? So go get your protest sign, cry in your Hybrid, while I am voting yes. You never know if SI gets his jail he might leave, just name it after him. How does the Simon L Leis Jr Jail sound? Then we will always remember the man who lost touch but never an election. ....ahhh who to oppress tomorrow.

I love any cartoon that pokes at Si Leis. He's the only sheriff I've ever heard of where his department was referred to as "Uncle Simon's Nazis". And to make it worse, it comes from people in both political parties.

I don't know what the solution to the problem is, but I DO know that shoving yet another sales tax increase down voters throats, or trying to sneak them by without asking us, makes a mockery of the democratic system. Who gives Si Leis, David Pepper, and Todd Portune the right to take more money out of my pocket?

And Si Leis using ANY county vehicles or employees (lunch hour or not) is reprehensible in my view. He can plaster signs all over his own car if he wants, but county vehicles should be used for county business and not political stumping.

Perhaps JB has already stumbled across the answer in a cartoon he did before the current "Justice" Center was built, a big open pit with barbed wire across it.
