Ohio State University marred by graffiti, " Long Live Zimmerman"



http://rt.com/usa/news/ohio-protest-university-zimmerman-480/

Days after an elderly white man says he was beaten by teenagers in retaliation for the death of Trayvon Martin, a nearby college was vandalized with a message believed to be in support of the teenager’s killer, George Zimmerman.

Earlier this year, 17-year-old Trayvon Martin was shot to death by George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old armed neighbor watch member patrolling a neighborhood in Sanford, Florida. With Zimmerman so far escaping charges in the case, many Americans have cried foul over the death of an unarmed black teen that has spawned a confession from the shooter but no charges.

At Ohio State University in Columbus this week, school officials say that a wall inside the college’s black cultural center was vandalized with graffiti proclaiming “Long Live Zimmerman.” Local news outlets have speculated that the slogan was in reference to Martin’s killer, and Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee tells the Associated Press that university police are “vigorously investigating” the incident.

In response to the vandalism, students at Ohio State waged a sit-in protest at the school on Friday.
Thursday’s revelation came but days after a man upstate in East Toledo, Ohio says he was accosted by a half dozen youths, both black and white, who he believes attacked him because of his skin color. Dallas Watts, a 78-year-old white man, says he urged his assailants to rethink his attack, insisting, “Why you picking on me? Remember Trayvon?”

Kasich to join President Obama for NCAA game in Dayton Ohio

Oh for Chrissake!

This obnoxious, intrusive, attention seeking repug Kasick makes me want to spit up. I hope he is ignored by President Obama and the Prime Minister....Maybe President Obama will ask him why he removed all the highway signs saying " American Reinvestment Act" which were immediately remove the first week this snake took the Ohio Govenors chair.

Ohio Gov. John Kasich will be among those greeting President Barack Obama and British Prime Minister David Cameron today when they arrive on Air Force One to attend the First Four basketball game.

“We think it’s always important anytime the president is in your state that you greet him,” said Kasich spokesman Rob Nichols. “It’s the president of the United States.”

Nichols said he is not sure what Kasich plans to say to the president or if he will discuss the state’s request for disaster aid. He said the governor will attend the Mississippi Valley State vs. Western Kentucky basketball game with Obama and Cameron.

DAYTON —
President Barack Obama will be making his first visit Tuesday to Dayton as commander-in-chief.

The White House announced Thursday that Obama will be bringing David Cameron, prime minister of the United Kingdom, with him to the University of Dayton Arena to take in a NCAA First Four basketball game, the first step to the Final Four of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

“I think it’s great. He is a huge a basketball fan,” City Commissioner Nan Whaley said. “Even he knows that Dayton is a huge basketball town.”

When told the White House had confirmed the visit, Catherine Petersen, Montgomery County communications director, was ecstatic.

“How fantastic for our area that the president of the United States is coming to the First Four at the University of Dayton Arena.”

This is great news for Dayton!

Slut chatter and birth control obstruction used by GOP is a gateway to end pre-exisiting coverage

It is my opinion that the GOP embaraced Limbaugh's slut abuse radio comments as they want to ultimately open a crack in the Obamacare mandate for health insurance services to cover pre-exisiting disease. This service cost insurance companies great profits...All this out of thin air attack on womens healthcare must have a target goal....so, to make any headway with stopping pre-exisiting healthare coverage they see the road being paved via birth control pills...The political language and legislation for birth control denial will be the gateway language and presidence for obstructing the mandate for pre- existing health care coverage.

That's my feeling the subject.
