Ancient Hatred: Sunnis VS. Shiites—The Never Ending War
Ronald Regan Lodge VOA Metro Park
7850 VOA Park Drive
West Chester, Ohio 45069

Thursday, September 24, 2015 7-8:30 PM

This session is timely and vital to understanding the conflict that has reached its tentacles into the United States. As Westerners, it is difficult to understand cultures where religion is Governmentscripture is law,  and the past defines the future.

In a country where, history is measured in hourly news cycles and sound bites it seems incomprehensible that this conflict between Sunni and Shiite is the work of centuries that began with the death of Prophet Muhammad in 632.

This session will be presented by Former Representative and incredible public speaker and patriot, Bob McEwen, who will help us understand such things as:

What is the difference between the Sunni and Shiite philosophies and their ultimate goals? Who comprises the armies of ISIS and ISIL? How do we succeed in defending and defeating those dedicated to this “never-ending war”?

Join us and find out!

The first half of the evening will bring members of two area school boards to address the redistribution of funds to school districts. The second half addresses several tax and policy proposals by the Governor including a one-half percent increase in the state sales tax, new taxes on oil and gas extraction in Ohio and planning ahead for the long term financing of Ohio’s Medicaid expansion which has recently added 465,000 new adults to the roles.

Ohio State Legislators Lou Terhar, John Becker, Jonathan Dever and Princeton School Board member Steve Moore will offer wide ranging opinions on the budget as well as offering possible changes that would protect the taxpayers while still growing Ohio’s economy.

The Roman historian Tacitus observed, “The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.” Yes, my fellow citizens, it seems that we are all criminals now.

In his lively manner, Senator Bill Seitz will discuss a pervasive problem and outline one of his latest successful endeavors. There have been many media reports of citizens being penalized with fines and in some cases incarcerated for behaviors that were seemingly harmless, but discovered they were breaking an obscure law that they had never heard of much less INTENTIONALLY intended to break. Despite their protest, many have had to pay fines and in some cases, go to jail.

This presentation is guaranteed to enlighten citizens struggling to comply with a burgeoning regulatory state. Senator Seitz will also give an overview of the steps he’s taken to remedy the situation and detail Ohio’s other legislative efforts to rein-in the maze of laws and regulations.

State Senator Bill Seitz is a lifelong resident of Western Hamilton County and an alumnus of University of Cincinnati, where he also earned his Juris Doctorate from the U.C. College of Law.

Cincinnati Museum Center

Cincinnati, Ohio 45203

Tuesday, March 24, 2015 7:00 PM

The best known celebrities of this century might find it difficult to match the glamorous life and social standing of Kate Chase. This famous Cincinnati native, born in 1840, commanded the attention of Americans and captured the eyes of powerful men, both during and after the Civil War era. Kate Chase was the daughter of Supreme Court Chief Justice and President Lincoln’s Treasury Secretary Salmon P. Chase. Kate possessed beauty, charisma and political savvy that launched her ascent to the highest echelons of society. Her celebrity rivaled Mary Lincoln and her marriage to dashing young Rhode Island Governor and Textile magnate William Sprague made her the Belle of Washington during the Civil War. Kate enjoyed a life of virtual royalty until it all came crashing down after an economic depression, a scandalous affair with a powerful senator and a sensational divorce. She lived her final years in poverty in DC, but never lost her independent spirit. Today, Kate lays at rest near her father in Spring Grove Cemetery. He will elaborate on her turbulent life, with particular attention to her and her family’s many Cincinnati connections.

The lecture will be conducted by lawyer and author, John Oller. He’s a 1979 graduate of The Ohio State University and received his Juris Doctorate from Georgetown University in 1982.

Following the lecture, Mr. Oller will be signing copies of American Queen: The Rise and Fall of Kate Chase Sprague, Civil War “Belle of the North’”and Gilded Age Woman of Scandal.

4_7 Shared Services_educate

A Fair and Balanced Look
at Shared Services
Price Hill Chili
4920 Glenway Avenue
Cincinnati, Ohio 45238

Tuesday, April 7, 2015 7:00-8:30 p.m.

Hamilton County Auditor Dusty Rhodes and Greg Lawson with the Buckeye Institute square-off on shared services, a solution offered as a way to ease tight municipal budgets. The questions raised at this session demand frank discussion and evidence that communities will see savings without losing dependable services. Does every community need their own fire and police department? Can residents depend on a timely response in an emergency? Does sharing public services always save money for the taxpayer? These are important questions when your health or home are at risk!

Mr. Lawson and Auditor Rhodes offer opposing views on a number of possibilities for shared services, providing examples from communities where combining services offered more efficiency and quality service as well as those communities where the service or cost failed to deliver the promised savings and quality. This presentation will help citizens and elected officials make wise choices when combining services is suggested for their communities.

Dusty Rhodes has served as Hamilton County Auditor since 1990 and was reelected to a 7th term in November of 2014. Greg R. Lawson is the Statehouse Liaison and Policy Analyst at the Buckeye Institute.

Baseball Revolution
Birth of The Professional Game
Reakirt Auditorium
Cincinnati Museum Center
1301 Western Avenue
Cincinnati, Ohio 45203

Thursday, April 23, 2015 7:00 -8:30 PM

The evolution of baseball and all professional sports took a huge leap in Cincinnati in 1869 when the Cincinnati Base Ball Club decided to support a professional team, signing all players to contracts and guaranteeing them a salary. A change in the rules in 1869 permitted clubs to employ pro players for the first time, and the Cincinnati club was the only one in the country to take advantage of the opportunity. The Cincinnati team, the Red Stockings, played coast-to-coast (the first team to ever do so), defeated every opponent (57-0), broadened the popularity of the game and established the superiority of the professional system. The first pro league formed two years later and professional team sports have been a part of the American landscape since.

Presenter:

Greg Rhodes is a former Executive Director of the Reds Hall of Fame and co-author of six books on the Cincinnati Reds.  A true fan with boundless baseball knowledge, Greg hosts the Reds Hall of Fame highlight moments heard prior to each Reds game on the Reds Radio Network pregame show while also serving as team historian and speaking to groups throughout the region on the history of Reds baseball.

Encounter on the street – What information are the authorities obligated to divulge before asking for identification and what are the citizen’s responsibilities in response?

Overtesting date

Are We Overtesting Our Students?
Frame USA, Inc
225 Northland Blvd.
Cincinnati, Ohio 45246

Tuesday, May 5, 2015 7:00 – 8:30 PM

The growth of standardized testing in our public schools should concern every parent, student, educator, business leader, and policy maker in our country. It’s mandated assessments on steroids as the number of tests by the Ohio Department of Education increased by two, three and four-fold in just one year!

Powerful testing companies seized the day and $380,000,000 from the federal government to develop standardized assessments for Common Core states. Virtually no vetting took place before contractors and their products were approved. Our students, teachers, and school districts are paying the price. Over-testing generates mountains of “data” used to label, judge and threaten, yet fails to provide 21st-century learning skills students need to attain.

This session will show why timely action and advocacy for taking back control of our curriculum and classroom is necessary for America’s future.
Jim O’Connor is the Chair of the Social Studies department at Princeton High School.

Cincinnati’s Emissary from Israel, Maia Morag, will discuss Israel’s global accomplishments and global impact. She will also discuss the current divestment movement and the dishonesty – and impossibility of it. Most major pharma companies, a significant number of technology firms, and a growing number of international firms have a large presence in Israel.

Divesting from Israel would mean no cell phones, no internet search engines, no back-up cameras in autos, fewer generic drugs, fewer snack foods, fewer green energy options (pioneer in solar, wind, and biodiesel), less effective electric cars, flash memory (including usb). Medical findings for spine victims, SIDS/crib risks, and hands-free nursing would also be gone. Military achievements in helicopters and ballistic defense, used by the USA, would also be prohibited under this approach.

“The People’s Attorney” Maurice Thompson to speak on Ohio Constitution and How We Can Protect It!

Attend in Person

Lakota High School West Freshman Campus

5050 Tylersville Road

West Chester, OH 45069

Thursday, April 24, 2014, 7:00-8:30 PM

Maurice Thompson is “The People’s Attorney” He is the Executive Director of the 1851 Center for Constitutional Law in Columbus which is a non-profit, non-partisan legal center dedicated to protecting the constitutional rights of Ohioans from government abuse. 1851 litigates constitutional issues related to property rights, voting rights, regulation, taxation and search and seizures.

Many of the protections of individual rights and limits on government in the United States Constitution have been eviscerated. How did this happen; and what is responsible for it? The same thing is in danger of happening here in Ohio, even hought (1) the Ohio Constitution is more protective of rights and restrictive on government than the federal constitution; and (2) Republics claiming an interest in limited government have controlled the Court for a decade. What does the Ohio Constitution say? And how can we protect it?

In this unique session Maurice will “flash teach” on three important topics (20 minutes each) that are impacting the Ohio Constitution: 1) What are the Unique protections of the Ohio Constitution?, 2) Are the judges shredding these protections and 3) How can you judge Ohio’s judges.Don’t miss this important EmpowerU Session.
