Evidence supports Officer's story

http://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/new-evidence-supports-officers-ac...

The Dept of Justice had previously stated that there was not enough to bring charges of any Civil Rights violations.

Now experts have say that the autopsy report supports the testimony of Officer Wilson.

The damning evidence is that there is a wound on Brown's thumb with gun powder residue inside the wound and Brown's blood inside the Officer's vehicle. That suggests there was a struggle over the weapon in the car.

What are Michelle Obama's girls eating at school?

In true "Let them eat cake" royal tradition, Michelle Obama is insisting that public school students eat meager lunches with such kid-friendly items as kale while her daughters are enjoying gourmet-like meals at their exclusive private school.

The Michelle inspired school lunch program has been met with such negative reviews that there's a Twitter hashtag (#ThanksObama) where students post pictures of their pathetic school meals.

However, Malia's and Sasha's lunches at the Sidwell Friends School are enough to fill tummies with mouth-watering delights. According to the school's website (link provided later), October 24's lunch will be:

Minestrone Soup
Buffalo Chicken Salad
Baked Ziti
Vegetable Ziti
Roasted Cauliflower
Kiwi

Yum!

Democrats sure have voter fraud down to a science

Why Do Homosexuals Want To Marry In Christian Churches?

I can't understand why homosexual people want to get married by a Christian minister or in a Christian Church. They have chosen a lifestyle that clearly contradicts the teaching of both the Old and New Testaments but they insist on marrying under Christian traditions. A Christian couple was fined $10,000 by the State of New York and ordered to pay a lesbian couple $1,500 each for not allowing them to marry on their property. http://theconservativetreehouse.com/2014/09/27/gay-mafia-claims-another-...

From lagging 'job creation' to lower charity giving, the wealthy give less back to society

From lagging 'job creation' to lower charity giving, the wealthy give less back to society
http://www.theguardian.com/money/us-money-blog/2014/oct/09/wealthy-give-...
A new report shows that the wealthy are giving only 4.6% of their salaries to charity, compared to 16.6% of those earning $25,000 or less. The least generous? Those who make $500,000 to a few million a year

Fiat Clown Car coming to Toledo?

Joe the plumber out at jeep?

It appears Samuel Wuzelbacher and Toledo Jeep may have parted ways. The public Joe the Plumber has been seen stumping for Republicans last week in Lewiston Idaho. Rumors have it the outspoken Joe has allegedly moved on to other things after working as a Jeep Temporary Part Time employee for about 9 months. Some of the Jeep TPPs were working up to 50 hours a week, not bad for temporary work. But the life of a production worker especially at the most efficient American auto plant can become a grueling grind that only those with a strongest constitution can withstand.

Speaker Boner's Jobs Plan Tweet

The true GOP Jobs Plan came out, and it's full of NOTHING, LITERALLY:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/wonkblog/wp/2014/10/07/does-john-boe...

BAHAHHAH

Here's my take on Boner's plan:

1) Talk a lot and do nothing
2) Endless Benghazi hearings to keep the morons riled up
3) Endless votes to repeal Obamacare
4) Shut down the government (again)
5) Hope the previous 4 are enough to get him and his buddies re-elected so they keep their jobs (instead of having to get new ones in the private sector).

toledoans are in deep denial about Jeep

There's a popular riddle that goes like this: A young boy and his father are in a car accident. The father dies at the scene. The boy is transported to the hospital and taken immediately into surgery, but the surgeon steps out of the operating room and says, "I can't operate on this boy--he's my son!" Who's the surgeon?

It's likely that in today's society more people would come up with the answer compared to 30 or more years ago. Of course, the surgeon is the boy's mother.

Just as this riddle requires thinking outside of the stereotypical box, Toledoans need to get a grip on the reality of Jeep leaving Toledo. Many of the arguments for why Jeep will/should stay in Toledo are gullible--at best.

Toledo has the skilled workers needed to produce Jeeps--Why would a state-of-the-art production facility making aluminum unibody Jeeps need production line workers?

Toledo is Jeep and Jeep is Toledo--Do people honestly think this means anything to Fiat?

Aren't many of the biggest screwups in the non-unionized part of the private sector?

JP Morgan/Chase is one of those private sector behemoths which is "too big to fail." This is NOT a partisan statement. Both Republican AND Democratic leaders lined up to dump gigantic piles of our tax dollars into the corporate troughs to be devoured by these welfare kings and queens in their thousand dollar+ suits, wearing their solid gold Rolex watches.

Keep Jeep in Toledo!

Yesterday a bombshell was dropped on Toledo. Denny Schaffer 105.5 interview with Bruce Baumhower https://soundcloud.com/dsnorulesradio/the-denny-schaffer-show-bruce-baum... CEO Sergio Marchionne made the statement at the Paris car show that Fiat is making plans to make a new unibody independently suspended ALUMINUM bodied Wrangler. Now if that's not enough to scare the bejebus out of the four wheel drive market Sergio continued to say it may not be built in Toledo. HOLY SHIT!

Koch Brothers are MAD!

A recent Rolling Stone investigative report, "Inside the Koch Brothers' Toxic Empire" http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/inside-the-koch-brothers-toxic... has the "Brothers" rolling mad and responded with a lengthy response letter, "Koch Industries Responds to Rolling Stone – And We Answer Back" http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/koch-industries-responds-to-ro...

now we know what happened to all of the unaccompanied illegal children

Remember how the summer was filled with news about illegal children coming over the Mexican border? And then--in true Obama/Holder fashion--what happened to the minors became a secret. The Associated Press now reports that these children have been dispersed around the Country leaving local schools and U.S. taxpayers responsible for taking care of these "students" who can't speak English and come with physical and emotional issues.

How complacent we have become as a citizenry. We're like beaten dogs--Obama has spat in the face of this Country so frequently that we sit back and take it hoping that it won't get worse--but it does.

The brazen disregard for this Country is evidenced by the fact that the federal government didn't give the school districts advanced notice that these illegals were coming. According to an AP article, Donald Hattier, a school board member for a Delaware district that was dumped with these illegal kids, said advance warning would have helped with planning. The federal government, he said, "just dropped this on us."

Rand Paul and Elizabeth Warren finally got the Audit the Fed passed with a bipartisan margin of 333 to 92, Right wing media has fought this for years and with the Banksters crashing the economy and Eric Holder leaving maybe we can retake America from the oligarchs.

Documentary exposing the impact of IRS on our liberties will be shown in Toledo

UnFair, a documentary that explores the over-reaching power and corruption of the IRS, will be played for one night in theaters in Toledo and Maumee.

According to the film's website:

"It will tell the stories of betrayal, corruption, intimidation and the harsh personal, economic and political realities of forced compliance upon the American way of life, as well present a unique ending featuring a real solution, not just another scary movie."

The movie will be shown nationwide on Tuesday, October 14, at 7 p.m.--including at the Franklin Park 16 and Fallen Timbers Rave Motion Pictures locations.

Look for the union hero

http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20140924_Ironworkers__hit_man__pleads_...

"he had no family ties in the union, which helped other members get steady jobs" (because actual qualifications for the work being done, well - that's just silly)

"Knowing that members who committed crimes on behalf of the union - referred to as "nightwork" - got the best jobs, Walsh let it be known to its then-longtime head, Joseph Dougherty, and four business agents "that he was willing to perform whatever crimes were necessary," Livermore wrote.

for the swampbubbles posters who are obsessed with 105.5 fm

There are certain SB posters who have recently become obsessed with Denny Schaffer and 105.5 FM. In the spirit of helping fellow posters, I wanted to make those people aware of something that should make them equally excited--Barry Manilow is releasing an album of duets he's done with dead people!

Yep, Barry sings with Mama Cass, Jimmy Durante, Andy Williams--along with a lot of other cryptors.

I smell a 105.5 special!
