Priorities (Blogathon 41/49)

Election season is just around the road.  Since dedicating time to fixing the economy is such a drag, the Republicans have come up with another way to get votes: appeal to Christians with mismanaged priorities.

The bill would allow prayer, including sectarian Christian prayer, at school board meetings in the USA.

We can get to all that less important stuff later.

This is post 41 of 49 for Blogathon.

Total donors is at 251 (if we hit 300 by 7am tomorrow, even if those donations are just the $5 minimum, 20 campers at Camp Quest Ohio will get to pie Michaelyn or JT in the face)! There will be pictures. That link also has some other ideas for pledging for Blogathon. :)

You can still donate to the SSA by supporting other blogathoners, art contributors, personal fundraising pages or through a direct donation to the SSA! SSA Week lasts through June 17th. Spread the word!

    I’m a lurker just coming out of hiding to show support. Hang in there you’re getting so close! I really admire all the bloggers doing blogathons. I can’t think of much to ask but I noticed you live in Columbus too so what are your favorite things to do in or around the city?

    • JT Eberhard

      I honestly don’t get out much. I live in the Short North and I like to go on walks. :) Do you live here?

      • Sadie

        I do! I’m jealous, I used to next to the Columbus Library but now I live in Whitehall for the cheap rent.

          Ironically, I don’t have many friends here in Cbus. I have them everywhere else in the country. You should come out to karaoke some night!

  • Sadie

    Yeah that would be cool! My boyfriend and I don’t actually have too many friends in this state either.

      Rock on!
