Constitutional Rights Commentary: Ohio Sucks

I’ve learned something new every day since moving to this state.

I learned that when the sirens go off, it’s not a call for volunteer firemen, it’s a tornado warning. I’ve learned how to attach a front license plate holder on my car. I’ve learned that a state without limited tort options equals higher car insurance. I’ve learned that an “at will” employment state means they can fire me for looking unhappy, and that I don’t have a case for wrongful termination.

Oh, Today I learned that this is the ONLY STATE IN THE UNION THAT HAS NOT RATIFIED THE 14TH ADMENDMENT TO THE BILL OF RIGHTS.

What kind of Back-water po-dunk state is this? Well, being it’s our bicentennial and all, it’s a good time to ratify this, wouldn’t you think? Some Ohio Republicans don’t.

"We now have a system where there's some misapplication. I don't want anybody to misconstrue our re-ratification of the 14th Amendment as also ratifying those cases where it's misapplied," said state Rep. Tim Grendell, R-Chesterland.

Drop this guy an email. Let him know it’s time that Ohio moves into the 19th century.

Thanks Atrios for catching this.
