School district accused of working on campaign during school time

I know what you are thinking. It is not Sylvania this time, but North Royalton. This issue is not local and happens across the Ohio, BUT it does not make it right. The State of Ohio should clarify to the Ohio districts the consequences of districts and employees violating the law.
========

The North Royalton school board has revisited its policy and formally and clearly spelled out what can and cannot be done in regards to employee campaigning during school work hours.

Can't wait to see the reaction to this story

So according to aCOWARD when you vote in a primary you are then lawfully held to that party. Here's a little story out of Michigan The revelation that the Michigan Democratic Party’s presumptive gubernatorial nominee voted in the most recent Republican presidential primary won’t strike most Michigan voters as much of a scandal, much less a stain on the nominee’s political integrity.

Why Obama is blatantly breaking U.S. immigraton laws

Only scanned this article about Stockman's opinion:

http://www.wnd.com/2014/07/congressman-at-border-obama-begging-to-be-imp...

But think he is on to something. My question when this unilateral amnesty deal started - and then when it was revealed that Obama started recruiting "amnesty helpers" (to coin a term) BACK IN JANUARY -- my question was WHY is he doing this, when he knows that congress will eventually be forced to slap him down, so to speak?

Anti-Israel Protest Going On, At Secor And Central!

Tagged:  

I just saw it, an hour ago. Green flags waving, signs calling Israel murderers of women and children, and so on. Here we go, folks.

A reasonable proposal

Granted, terrorist organizations such as Hamas that seem to revel in having children and women killed for propaganda purposes would bitterly denounce this rational idea, but we have to hope the sane still outnumber the insane in the Middle East.

Toledo is going down for the count

I try to stay west of Talmadge Road as much as possible. But a family member was in town and from her days in Toledo, she was familiar with the layout of the Kroger store on Monroe and Secor. So I took her over and waited in the car, Wow--talk about your sociological experience!

First, I see this interesting fellow in a pimped-out Mercedes (gold trim, fancy rims) pull up to a spot in the far reaches of the lot. Sure enough--a woman who looked like she would be more at home on a section of Monroe Street in the heart of downtown--gets out of her car. The Mercedes dude, wearing his rust-colored zoot suit (with matching shoes), gets out of his car. They embrace, she gets into his car--and off they go into the night. I felt the need to immerse myself in a vat of antibacterial soap.

Then there was the beggar at the traffic light exiting the parking lot. Her sign said she was a mother of two and "anything would be appreciated." My friend was shocked to see this. People weren't begging on street corners when she left Toledo 8 years ago (yeah, and Obama wasn't President then either).

As we left, there was a homeless man with all his worldly belongs strapped to his back walking down Monroe headed for Secor.

House Republicans Moving to Give Barack Obama More Than A Billion Dollars to Fund Crisis on the Border

The radical Islamist group terrorizing Iraq and ousting Christians there has threatened President Barack Obama, U.S. sources revealed.

"We're coming for you, Barack Obama," the group threatened, according to Elissa Slotkin, acting principal deputy undersecretary of defense for policy, in a story published by The Hill.

The group's insurgence inside the country has drawn the attention of U.S. officials who have called it "worse than al-Qaida."

The agreement sets out general terms and conditions for the "potential sale of certain goods and services related to the safety of flight," Boeing said in a regulatory filing.

GOP Blasts Democrats for Boycotting Talks on VA Legislation

Republicans slammed Democrats on Thursday after most of them boycotted a conference committee meeting to work out differences between House and Senate bills addressing the Veterans Affairs crisis.

"The crisis at VA is not a partisan problem, and I will do everything I can to prevent this from devolving into an exercise in the sort of bickering and name-calling for which Washington has become infamous," said Rep. Jeff Miller, the Florida Republican who chairs the House Veterans' Affairs Committee.

Just say no to higher property taxes on August 5th!

Should Soccer Be The So-Called World Sport?

Tagged:  

I know there's a political component, and additionally, there's the money issue. I remember soccer has been pushed in this country, since I first began following sports, c. 1960. I think baseball should be the official "World Sport", but that's a personal choice. That said, basketball is played the world over, and even some of the Commie Countries love it. As an American, I want to see Our Country dominate in the sports' world as well. I don't care for watching "0-0" scores, game after game, either. Hopefully, this notion will wither on the vine, as they say.

"We lost contact with the plane." Really?

By John Rappoport

Air Algerie Flight 5017, from Burkina Faso to Algiers crashed, according to "officials."
Some of these officials state contact with the plane was lost an hour after takeoff.
You can probably remember similar statements about other doomed flights: lost contact. Wasn't that the case on 9/11?

"Lost contact" appears to cover all available means of communication. Nothing on radar screens. Radio inoperative. No transponder signals picked up.
In this day and age, with a blizzard of technology available to track and surveil, what is going on?

Muslim Terrorists Use Children as Human Shields!

For some odd reason, modern liberals have chosen to side with fascist Islam against Democratic Israel. It’s a confusing (and disturbing) trend among the modern left, who have turned their back on the attacked Israel in favor of the violent aggressors in Islam.

Perhaps educating liberals might help to change their minds?

Watch this…

Taxpayers start with T and that rhymes with P which stands for pools

I took crap from a number of people on here especially prunefart who no longer posts here about the pic of the empty splash pad I posted some weeks ago. I wonder if the same reaction will be fired back at Ch. 13 for their honest reporting of the dismal numbers of attendance at Toledo pools this year. Of course it's a 'quality of life' issue though.

A small ceremony ushered in the opening of Jamie Farr Pool on North Summit St, Wednesday.

Common enemy

Unlike my other sparsely attended events tonight's Glenn Beck event against Common Core played to a full house at Fallen Timbers. Hope you were in the crowd, but if not here's a link for the Ohio site http://ohioansagainstcommoncore.com/

No, not Mr. Myers' site. The supposedly all-new and improved government healthcare site is apparently unable to detect fraud.

Do We Want All This Crap---AGAIN!

Do we want another Co-Presidency? It seems like the Patron Saint of Liberal-Land, is still at it. Bill Clinton aka Slick Willy, der Slickmeister, and other excellent nicknames, might end up bringing something back to the Countrys' attention---- the endless discussions about blowjobs each time he gets caught. The last time around, Ms. Clinton was in charge of "Bimbo Eruptions". So following that paradigm, if she gets elected, Bill HIMSELF will be in charge. I can't wait.
