I stopped at Ada, Ohio, (pop. 6,052), home of the Wilson Football Factory. They make the “official” NFL footballs here… While in downtown Ada, I met a woman whose husband had had a fatal heart attack during the middle of a sky-diving jump in Xenia, Ohio. For the “burial,” the whole family (wife and four kids) did a collective sky-diving jump: while sprinkling his ashes… From Ada, I headed south on Route 235 to Alger, Ohio (pop. 870). In the downtown area there is a memorial to area Veterans. A plaque in the shadow of an eagle and American flag, reads: “All gave some. Some gave all.” In Alger, I also put up a campaign card at the local market and talked to Mike Dye. He said a couple years ago an excerpt from a You Tube video he put up made it to: CNN. The crux of the video was that government stimulus checks sent out to all American taxpayers several years ago should have been “time limited.” That is, said Dye, the stipulation should have been that the money be spent in one year. (You’d have to send in receipts, or something, as proof.) Dye thinks this would have been “common sense.” …And it’s ‘spiritual common sense’ that’s on display at the Willow Branch Cemetery on the outskirts of Waynesfield, Ohio (pop. so small it’s not even listed in the back of the Atlas). Part of a gravestone at the cemetery there reads: “When it’s time to leave the earth, the only thing you take with you — is what you gave away.” …It was then on to Uniopolis, Ohio (home of 2000 State Wrestling Champ Brent Miller), where you can get your eye brows waxed at B’z Hive Salon for five bucks. The only other things “downtown” here is a small carry out store and a U.S. Post Office, where I put up a campaign card on the bulletin board. What’s more, there was a full-color Mitt Romney campaign brochure in the top of the waste basket there. See, all the millions of dollars on campaigning by these other guys and, that’s right, whose up on the bulletin board in Uniopolis? And we continue to do this all without paid political consultants! Note: A study released yesterday projects that obesity in American will grow from about a third of the population today, to 44% by 2030. Meanwhile, 24,000 people starve to death every day in the Third World (U.N. figure) and millions and millions more are chronically malnourished. This is such a tremendous social justice travesty, and our foreign policy paper addresses the topic at length.
