I do not read her column every day, and often I am turned off by her observations. But this time her position seems more reasoned (to me) than your rant. I suppose you are in competition with Fred, and just want to seem more "with it". You do not really have to adopt his "humorous" approach to politics (even if you feel it is your job to entertain). I do not agree with a "tax" on plastic bags unless it does change behavior. I doubt it will since those who do not recycle now will not because of a 5 cent surcharge on plastic bags. Bags can be used several time, but who does that? Bags can also be made out of material that degrades into smaller pieces but I do not know of any firm that uses those in Toledo. In the not-to-distant future the county will have to open another landfill because we have not adopted policies like this.

Yes, little man of tiny talent, who cares what you rant?

You're a just a Wanna-Be. Fred and Brian on WSPD have the audience, talent, brains and jobs on a real talk station with real BIG double-digit audience ratings.

ATTENTION PAST AND FUTURE "GUESTS" OF LITTLE NEFFY'S PLAY-LIKE 'RADIO SHOW":

YOU ARE SOOOO WASTING YOUR TIME. HE HAS -0- AUDIENCE. GOT THAT? WHEN YOU TALK TO NEFFY YOU ARE BEING HEARD BY.......NEFFY - AND MAYBE HIS BOARD OP. IF YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU ACTUALLY WANT HEARD , CALL FRED OR BRIAN. NEFFY LISTENS TO THEM TOO.

Roberta The Bore, on her worst days, looks like a genius compared to the biggest waste of time,money and radio frequency in NW Ohio.
And beyond.
But Andy Stuart loves him -- for that $30K he drops on Clear Channel to buy his pitiful air time. Think of that the next time you're considering a "financial advisor"!

Your anonymity is not protected here. If you mention my financial business 1 more time, I will come after you. With my attorney. And I do know who you are dumbshit.

Everyone should feel free to comment on the subject matter and my opinion on it as well.

dear little neffy

----Your anonymity is not protected here. If you mention my financial business 1 more time, I will come after you. With my attorney. And I do know who you are dumbshit.----

Gee - I have read and read and re-re-read my little posting and - dammit - I just can't seem to locate that "mention" of your (alleged) "financial business".
(Pssssssst: bet your "attorney" can't either). But YOU mention it:

" Troy A. Neff is managing director of Advanced Retirement Solutions. He also hosts “The Troy Neff Show” each weekday 6 to 10 a.m. on WCWA-AM 1230. E-mail: Troy@TroyNeff.com." (Auto bailout 11/24)

Can't WAIT to chat with your legal beagle! Have him call or drop today, OK?

---Everyone should feel free to comment on the subject matter and my opinion on it as well.---

Looks like that's exactly what I'm doing. So what's the problem, little boy? You say "everyone should feel free to comment..." then threaten someone who hurt your widdle feelings!

"Your anonymity is not protected here." - Not exactly true. It hasn't been decided by the courts where bloggers fall into the First Amendment. It's been widely debated that they are journalists. Since each of us technically bring "news" to this site we are all amateur journalists.

"If you mention my financial business 1 more time, I will come after you. With my attorney." - Nice threat you pansy. There are two things you need to prove to put forth a credible Libel suit. The first is damage and the second is malice. Good luck proving that he hurt your business and good luck that he intended to hurt your business. Let me save you a $600 fee and tell you what your attorney will tell you and that's "Go piss up a rope".

See Turd Neff I just saved you $600. You can thank me later.

From the link at the bottom of this page:

But what can you do? If a user says something that you don’t like, you still have remedy. You can file suit against the user, usually as a Jane/John Doe case. A judge rules that the site must release the information on the user(s) and the site admin will comply with the court. Then you can get the information on the user and get your remedy. The admin will comply with all court orders, including removal of offensive content.

There's a city full of walls you can post complaints at

"The aim of such legislation is to forever steer consumer and retail behavior away from wasteful practices."

The actual effect is to drive retailers and consumers outside the borders of wasteful city governments.

I would have no objections to this if the STORE were initiating and collecting the fee. IKEA has a five-cent surcharge on its bags. To avoid paying it, you can buy some of their huge reuseable tarp bags, or smaller tote type bags in store, bring your own bags, bring boxes, load items into your car without bags, or pay 5 cents a bag--you pack your own stuff, so you can cram as much as you want into a large 5 cent bag. OR you can shop somewhere else--CHOICE is key.

Lots of people still shop there and somehow make do. Granted this is not a grocery store (though they have some groceries) and it is more like a destination store--like Cabela's...you make the trek up a couple of times a year,

How many times must we say it? The GOVERNMENT has no business in these sorts of things. It just creates BIGGER Government.

Retailers have been starting to encourage canvas bag use for some time--The Andersons, Target, Kroger, ToysRUs are all selling them cheap. Probably in hopes that consumers will begin to absorb the culture change in the way we shop. It wouldn't surprise me if retailers have been prepping to start charging for plastic.

Carty just jumped on a bandwagon a little late, if you ask me, hoping to look like the knight in shining armor that saves the environment.

you can pack 4 nickle plastic bags of groceries into one $1 tote. And use them over and over and over and over....

turns out you were an excellent choice to fill the positions of marketing boy, gardner, chauffer, houseboy, gigolo, green card sucka, etc, etc ...

You do windows, don't you ?

yep

im the perfect husband

shame you missed that class too...

grab yer mop

the big sturdy bags are 10 cents, so the mayor should just forget his intrusion plan.
