Certain Ohioans with disabilities or chronic conditions who receive care at home through Medicaid face an uphill battle to ensure the hands that help them bathe, get dressed and tend to their daily needs are those that are true and trusted.
I never intended to be a voice for pit bull-type dogs. Never in a million years. My life has quite literally gone to the dogs over the years. And while I never intended to be any type of voice for pit bull-type dogs, this is why I care so much and will never stop being a voice for them, either.
While Kasich and Bush certainly took a more measured tone in the first Republican debate compared to, say, Donald Trump, their policy positions and records as governor in Ohio and Florida show that they're just as extreme and far-right as the rest of the Republican field.
We're going to begin today with a wrapup of the week that was in the presidential campaigns, and as befitting his status as the Republican frontrunner, we're going to start with Donald Trump.
This may seem like a strange post for most of Huffington Post's readers. Why wouldn't someone who smokes pot want Ohio to legalize marijuana in 2015? If you ask some marijuana activists, they'll sum it up in two words: constitutional cartel.
In Cleveland, as LeBron says, "nothing is given, everything is earned," so earning respect here will require something beyond defaming Mexican immigrants as "rapists" (Trump), claiming U.S. foreign policy would march Israelis "to the door of the oven" (Huckabee), or comparing Wisconsin labor protestors to ISIS terrorists (Walker).

We cannot seek to prevent the collapse of communities we deem valuable while ignoring the ones that produced these issues. We forget that there are people who are dying who have lived lives that we do not understand and who have people who love them as much as we love those around us and that this lack of connection with those affected prohibits us from developing comprehensive solutions.
Immediately, I felt embarrassed. I felt degraded. I felt unwelcome. I felt stupid. I felt dirty. I felt unequal. I felt violated. I felt like a N*gger.
I must admit that the Fourth of July holds a very special place in my heart, having nothing to do with the Declaration of Independence or The Stars and Stripes. It was a 4th of July weekend in 1975 that my high school held its 10th year reunion.
I'm really torn about this proposal; from a business standpoint, it's the shittiest form of legalization yet proposed. But from a civil rights standpoint, it's long past time to remove this means of oppression from the toolkit of brutal, racist police.
Basically there are three ways the Clean Power Plan, which calls for a 30 percent cut in carbon emissions from existing power plants, is good for business and our economy.
