Is Right-to-Work For You?

Is Right-to-Work for you? WSPD 1370 Radio Host Fred Lefebvre is working part time as a stock boy for a Speedway gas station in Sylvania Ohio. The 65 year old at-will IHeartRadio employee looks to supplement his non union radio income by working another job at minimum wage. After years of promoting conservative values and Right-to-Work on the radio we see the results of this life style. Now Right-to-Work is being pushed again for Ohio and for the Nation. If you want to work as a stock boy at age 65 then allow Right-to-Work to be the law of the land.

I was tempted to entitle this, Wanna Fight?, but forbearance got the better of me.

A Little alcohol Every Day Is Good!


According to the article referenced here, the daily intake of small amounts of alcohol have a beneficial effect on health. It leads to lower levels of cardiovascular disease for most people. Both my primary-care physician, and my cardiologist have believed this to be true for many years, and I just finished my one glass of red wine tonight!

Webb and General Tire

Never did hear a explanation for this. General Tire wanted to build a big shop on the corner of Alexis and Suder, almost across the street from A elementary school. Your the council person for that district. almost all your constituents strongly are opposed to this plan and tell you they don't want that building to take place. You say to hell with what your constituents want and and campaign for the shop to be built. Why would you do this? Did you expect to get reelected after telling the people in part of your district to go fuck themselves? What was Webb's motive?

Happy MLK Day !!

Happy Birthday Mr. King . One of the greatest Americans of all time!

Lindsay Webb - Hickey lover - Short Term

Lindsay Webb, Hickey lover and supporter of wife beater Jeremy Bunhower, had a shorter stay at her new job than Anthony Scramucci. She had to quit her appointment to the treasurers job because she has bad credit and owes alot of money. Talk about the fox guarding the hen house. This is the best person the Democrats could come up with?
What a fucking joke. Maybe she can get a job with the Pedophile when he opens his health spa's , so he claims. Both political parties in this town suck goose shit.

I read the story in The Kansas City Star.

24 WNWO-TV is owned by Sinclair Broadcasting

New Years Eve I was with family and the television had the 11:00 WNWO channel 24 news on. A Sinclair broadcasting propagandist came on with a five minute republican rant. Now I've heard of Sinclair buying up small media outlets across the nation b ut to watch this for real here in Toledo was another thing. The reaction on those in the room with me watching were clueless as to the source or the propaganda effect. I explained what was going on and they just didn't know or really care. This is what is happening in Toledo:

Erica Garner dead at 27 of a "heart attack."

If Erica Garner had died at the age of 27 when Obama or Clinton were POTUS, Farmer Gal and the other conspiracy-theory kooks would have claimed that she was killed by the Liberals to hide "something!" But, even though she was a "thorn in the side" of conservatives who regularly make excuses for murders cloaked as law enforcement, no matter how egregious the actual crime, I have not seen one Liberal outlet accuse any conservatives of staging her death to look like a heart attack yet. After all, she was only 27! Hmmm...

GOP Tax Plan -Welfare for the rich

Well it looks like the Republicans are finally going to get Tax cut for the Rich pass.
Trump been lying and blowing smoke up the public's ass.
There have already been a number of companies who have already said they will pass any tax savings to back to their share holders and NOT to create jobs for the middle class like lyin Don claims.
Why does these "tax cuts" for the middle class "expire" after a few years while the Corporate
rate stays permanent? Scam

Toledo Corporate Radio going broke.


Cumulus Media files for bankruptcy protection
From story:
Industry trade publication Variety reports Cumulus’ current debt at $2.4 billion, with the company having defaulted this month on a $24 million debt payment.

Ron Paul has been predicting a stock market crash for over 5 years at least!

Ron Paul predicting that the stock market will crash in NOT NEWS! In minimal research, I traced negative statements about a stock market crash, at least back to 2012! At that time, the Dow Jones Industrial Average was at 13,344. As I write this, the DJIA is well over 24,000. In simple terms, if one listened to Ron Paul 5 years ago, and sold all of one's stocks, one would have missed out on about an 82% increase in stock value!

Make the world a better place right now!

I post the words of Pope Francis to illustrate what each of us can do to make this world a better place for all:
"Each of us has a vision of good and of evil. We have to encourage people to move towards what they think is good... Everyone has his own idea of good and evil and must choose to follow the good and fight evil as he conceives them. That would be enough to make the world a better place."

To all who read and post here, I wish a safe, healthy, joyous holiday season, and a great 2018!

The Faux News anchor, many Faux News addicts hate! Why? He often tells the truth --aka real news!


At least one Faux News anchor brings some real balance to the broadcasts on Faux News. Innumerable times Faux News, and conservatives in general, complain LOUDLY about what they label as "Fake News." It is Faux News, and Lyin' Don the Michelin Man who never met a burger he didn't like, often repeating the lies he has heard on Faux News and other truly fake news outlets as if these erroneous statements were true, that are the greatest sources of "Fake News" in the media!
Here is the link to an article featuring a very recent report of the truth behind the sale of nuclear material, and how unfairly it is being portrayed by the MSCM (Mainstream Conservative Media). http://www.nydailynews.com/news/politics/shepard-smith-debunks-clinton-u...

Mikey -- I just could not resist. This one's for you, pal!

I will post this from a source via my email:
"They can hold all the peace talks they want, but there will never
be peace in the Middle East.  Billions of years from now, when Earth
is hurtling toward the Sun and there is nothing left alive on the
planet except a few microorganisms, the microorganisms living in
the Middle East will be bitter enemies."

Radio Host Transformed

Boy have times changed in Toledo. I remember a time when the Toledo Blade newspaper and WSPD 1370 radio were enemies. Remember when WSPD use to say they read the Blade so you don’t have to. They routinely told their listeners it was good for lining the bird cage. Now the Blade has swung to the right instrumented by Keith Burris. WSPD is now running ads for the Blade’s new Newsslide. Even the Blades former enemy Fred LeFebvre has downloaded the Blade’s fee based Newslide on his cell phone. His positive Newslide promos run at every break! His demeanor has changed towards all things The Blade.
